Book Blitz Tour + Review + Excerpt + Giveaway: Take A Risk Bundle by Robin Bielman



Book Blurb:

The Take a Risk bundle by USA Today best selling author Robin Bielman includes three of her popular Take a Risk novellas plus an additional, never-before-published novella, One Night of Risk.

Worth the Risk
Samantha Bennett put Dean Malloy out of her mind five years ago, when he broke her heart after a summer fling. But now he's back in her life, and ready to steal a heritage protection contract that could make or break her career–if he doesn't steal her heart first. Samantha's vowed to hate him, but one wild weekend could change everything.

My Thoughts:

I liked this story, because we have to former lovers reunited. They fell apart, because of ambition and pride. Now they get a second chance, but the question is will ambition and pride separate Dean and Sam again. It sucks to be them, because they are both pitching their ideas to Dean's father. They both still have lot of chemistry, and is it enough to keep them together after everything is said and done. 

Yep a quick little read, and these two are great together. 

Risky Surrender
When Keats McCall catches Lucy Davenport at his latest project, he suspects she's up to no good. She's secretive, sexy as hell–and has trouble written all over her. He devises a plan to keep her close so he can watch her. But what he isn't prepared for is just how close he wants to get.

My Thoughts:

I actually thought Risky Surrender was a delightful read. Basically, you have a nice story line that isn't too complicated and works well to give you a satisfying ending. Sometimes novellas can be little rush to get to the happy ending, but Robin manages not rush the story. Honestly, it has a nice pace. Lucy and Keats are great together. One thing Lucy isn't fawning over Keats, because he's rich and handsome. Instead she's trying to go under his radar. Yet, Keats isn't going to have that. Actually he wants to help Lucy, but she just needs to be forth coming in whats going on in her life. They do have a great dynamic together.

Overall, an enjoyable novella. So, if you are looking for a quick read that isn't too rushed, you might want read Risky Surrender.

His Million Dollar Risk
Charlize Beckett is in deeeep trouble. This is her one chance to prove to her publisher dad that she's a serious reporter, even if she has to pretend she's someone else. And the subject of the story, Connor Gibson,  is way too charming for her to maintain any objectivity, or even keep her from getting into all kinds of sexy trouble. By going off the record, Charlie is putting both her reputation and her heart on the line...

My Thoughts:

His Million Dollar Risk is an adorable read. Oh my god, such a cute story and makes it cute is Charlie. Her enthusiasm is infectious. The way she sees Route 66 is like a child seeing an amusement park for the first time. Her joy spreads over to Connor. Now Connor is a stick in the mud. At the beginning of the story he's rigid and unmovable, and totally has a hard time with Charlie. However, he lets loose and starts seeing things like Charlie. Yet, there's a slight snag in their budding relationship, he believes her to be the reporter that's suppose to interview him. Whoops.

Oh my goodness, His Million Dollar Risk is so freaking adorable. Charlie is adorkable. No one can help falling in love with her, even Connor.

One Night of Risk

With her mom sick, good girl Malia Davis has returned to Kauai in order do something bad—retrieve a piece of crystal believed to have healing properties. She thinks her only problem is accessing the “closed to the public” temple. She's wrong. She has an even bigger problem—former Navy SEAL and security expert Clay Doherty, the guy who broke her heart ten years ago who she still wants. Certain that Malia is up to no good, Clay will do whatever it takes to protect her...even if it means losing her for good.

My Thoughts:

One Night of Risk is a little more steamier than other stories, but still a pretty good read. We have Malia who is trying to find hope for her mother in a form of a crystal. However, there are risk to getting this crystal like the fact that it's on sacred ground and it's protected. Yeah, it could be a problem. The other problem comes in a form of a former lover who works for the company that is trying to protect this area. Yep, good times. At the time Clay broke Malia's heart he thought he was doing the right thing. Silly men.

Anyway, steamy yep. Reunited lovers, yes. Is there happy ending for these two, it's a romance it would be pretty crappy if there wasn't. Anyway, one of the sweetest ending that choked me up.


Overall, the bundle is a pretty sweet deal, because you get three previous novellas put together with a new story. We actually met Clay in His Million Dollar Risk. All the stories tie together in one way or another.

From One Night of Risk Novella
He grinned and the potency of it stole her breath. His dimples should come with an advisory label: Will cause hearts to flutter and panties to spontaneously combust. “What about you?”
“What about me?” She swallowed the lump sitting in the back of her throat.
“You haven’t told me why you’re here.”
She took a step back. His intuitiveness made her jumpy. But worse, his nearness made her light-headed and warm in places she shouldn’t be. She seriously thought about stopping the conversation by flinging her arms around his neck and kissing him until talking was the last thing he wanted to do.
Which would be a huge mistake. She may secretly crave to be a little bit bad, and remember how good being bad with Clay had felt, but right now, given the situation with her mom, her emotions were too raw. She was too vulnerable.
“I’m here for a little R&R and to spend time with Kalani.” That’s what she’d told everyone. With a busy studio and all her free time spent with her mom, she did need a little mental break. A few days to lose herself.
You could lose yourself in Clay.
He narrowed his eyes and eliminated the space she’d put between them. “You also here to excavate?”
What?
His smug smile made her mad…and somehow hotter. Dammit, why did he have to make her feel stuff? Then he licked the pad of his thumb and proceeded to wipe the corner of her forehead. “You’ve got a little dirt here,” he said, his voice and touch equally seductive. “And”he dropped his arm“under your fingernails.”
She stared at him. For several long, agonizing seconds.
He could probably tell her what color her bra and panties were with his insane powers of deduction.

“Still the strong silent type when things get uncomfortable.” The annoyingly sexy turn of his lips grew a little bigger.
