Risking It All
by Jennifer Schmidt (Goodreads Author)
Twelve years later Kennedy and Memphis Adams are closer than ever - and only friends despite what those around them think, including Kennedy’s boyfriend Ian Brooks. When Kennedy accepts an invitation to vacation in Alaska from Memphis, her relationship with Brooks is tested as is her restraint when it comes to the desire she has always had for her best friend.
Alone with Memphis in Alaska, Kennedy finds it increasingly harder to ignore temptation and wants nothing more than to give into her secret desires with the one man that has always been off limits. But is one night of passion worth the possible risk of losing their friendship over?
Feeling torn between doing the right thing and doing what she wants, Kennedy fears losing her best friend. She knows she needs to sort out her feelings for the two men in her life and deal with the consequences of her actions, but how can she when everything seems to be falling apart so fast? And how much can Memphis take before he’s pushed too far and can no longer take Kennedy’s inability to make a decision about what and who she wants?
Kennedy discovers the harsh reality of how one night can change everything and leave her risking it all
I did not know what to expect from this book. I was pleasantly surprised and quite loved the book. I loved the story line and I absolutely fell in love with Memphis the typical bad boy player who finds love. :) One of my favorite type of fictional men.
I liked the story of Kennedy and Memphis and how it morphed into something so beautiful and profound. I will be honest I did want to throttle Kennedy many times with her insecurities and fear of being alone which caused her to not to see something that was so obviously in front of her. The fear to be alone is deep and sad because if we can't be ok in on our own skin then how can we be in a relationship with anyone else.
This book hit me at the right time with the right emotions so I am giving it 5 thumbs up!
