My Rating:  3.5 stars

Fortune’s Greatest Risk is the fourth title in The Fortunes of Texas: Rambling Rose mini-series and it brings us Dillon Fortune’s story, the quieter, far less outgoing than his brothers or sister.  Dillon has himself under such strict self-control that you’d think he’d snap from the self-imposed pressure.  Hailey, the manager of the newly renovated Paz Spa is the total opposite.  She’s outgoing, always sees the bright side of any event, and determined that those around her live life to the absolute fullest.  She has most definitely met her match in Dillon for these two could not be more distant in their outlook on life if they tried even harder.  Yet, the attraction is there, sizzling beneath one controlled, one outgoing set of personalities.

While I enjoyed Dillon and Hailey’s romance I found that there is a point where I simply cannot believe in a couple’s attraction, a borderline where there can actually be too opposite to ever realistically attract – for me.  This is a slow, slow-burn romance where it’s almost three-quarters of the way through their story that we get to understand why Dillon holds himself in such tight control.  So, I liked their story, I didn’t love it – and that’s okay, not every story is going to hit all the high spots for every reader.  It’s a good story so I do believe you should check it out and make up your own mind.

I own a Kindle edition of this title
