REVIEW of Risk Me by Lexi Scott -- Blog Tour


I was actually quite undecided about whether or not I should review this book. The blurb made Cohen look a little too good and boring. I have no qualms about the good part, but I don't like the male lead to be dull and too tame. Eventually, my curiosity won out and I read it. Let me share my thoughts about it real quick.

SYNOPSIS:
For Cohen Rodriguez, getting dumped by his girlfriend was bad enough. Being told he's “not impulsive enough” was just the cheap parting gift. Still, he takes a break from his ├╝ber responsible ways and dates his way through Silver Strand. Except it's not exactlyK turning out the way he thought...
 
On top of that, there's Maren Walshe, whose combination of sexy and down-to-earth is everything Cohen wants in a girl. But while they've recently been talking on the phone and texting every day, they've never actually met. Now Maren wants to meet. In person.
 
Faced with turning his oh-so-safe fantasy girl into an uncertain reality, Cohen and Maren are both about to dive head first, ready or not.

CHARACTER BACKGROUND:
Maren Walshe doesn't think highly of herself. In fact, she believes that all she's worthy of are a-hole guys and a messed up life. She's sad and lonely, but can't really move on with her life because of the "things" tying her down. However, she wants to know how it feels to be cherished and cared for, even if it's just for a while.

Cohen Rodriguez has always been the dependable guy. The stable, safe, and family-oriented man. But, that's something he wants to change. He wants to develop a more carefree and laidback attitude, all the while hoping he finds the right woman for him.

REVIEW:
I did not expect Risk Me to have such sexy and dirty language. I loved it! Cohen is obviously not boring and straight-laced. He has a wild side, and one that a woman would be happy to explore. Thing is, he's exactly the kind of guy I normally go for; seemingly innocent, goody-goody, smart, a gentleman, and responsible. I say "seemingly" because, I know that guys like this tend to hide large beasts within themselves. I talk from experience. *winks* Going back to the story, I absolutely loved the building passion between Maren and Cohen. Their romance started out quite differently than what we usually read; there were no women tripping over their own feet, then looking up only to see the hottest man alive, or two people sharing a one night stand, then finding out they have to work together. It's great how they developed feelings for each other (whether they admit it or not) because of their personalities, and not due to their mutual physical awesomeness. There was the usual troubled past and expected issues they faced, but all in all it still panned-out pretty well. The book was well-written and perfectly paced. I give it 4 stars.
