Love is a risk I will never take, a prize too good for a man who betrayed his family. That’s why I prefer to keep things transactional. So when I see the exquisite tiny dancer in the exclusive Parisian billionaire’s club, turning her burlesque into an erotic art form, I’ll give whatever it takes to have her…
She is mine for one night, to do with as I please. But following my commands seems to bring her as much pleasure as it does me. And I can’t help wondering at her performance. She almost makes me believe this is a fantasy of her own making.
I’m not ready to let her go after just one night, but I never imagined my hunt would lead me to New York City, or to a restrained and disciplined ballerina. Stoking the fire that rages between us could be the biggest risk I’ve ever taken…one that may cost me everything, including my damaged heart.

My Rating: 4 stars
THE RISK brings us Sebastian’s side of the family issues we encountered in THE DEBT, his brother Ash’s story. Family dynamics always fascinate me and now seeing both sides of their conflict makes it much easier to understand each man. Sebastian and Darcy’s story is going to steam up your e-reader to the boiling point. If you aren’t comfortable with a bit of kink, some dominance then this story may not be for you – but the Harlequin Dare™ line is known to be spicy and hot.
Darcy is a complex character shown with simplicity. She’s devoted to her art but she wants more, and for once she’s going for what she wants. That one night will change everything and bring her pain and joy that she never expected to experience. Sebastian is wounded, his decisions have been based on his past yet this woman reaches him in a way he never expected. And he’s not sure what to do with these emotions so of course, he makes mistakes – big mistakes. Watching them find their way through the sexiness to the deep love that developed between them was a sexy, enjoyable journey.
I enjoyed THE RISK. Yes, it’s as hot and sexy and dominate as possible – but there are emotions at work as well, and seeing Sebastian break free from his past and Darcy embrace a different future made this one much more than a hot, kink romance. If you love a sexy couple who find that perfect blend of sex and love together then you’ll want to pick up this series – I’m already anticipating the next story to come.
