One more game. And this time, there are no rules…
After a life of pool hustling and living on the wrong side of the law, Ruby Elliott is living on the straight and narrow with sexy-as-all-hell NYPD detective, Troy Bennett. Now the only trouble Ruby has with the law is the naughty kind, pinned against the wall by Troy's strict and spectacularly hard body. Obeying his every command. Both of them losing themselves in a lust that borders on obsession...
But then her father returns with an offer she can’t refuse: one last hustle in exchange for information. Information she’d die to have. As the pieces and the players of the game reveal themselves, Troy feels the fine edges of his control slipping—control he can’t channel without hurting Ruby. The stakes are high, and the risk higher. Because losing this final game could cost more than Ruby’s heart…it might cost her life.

My Riskier Business Review ...
First off I'm such a big fan of Tessa Bailey and all her dirty talking men. In Riskier Business this is a prequel and jumping point from one series into a new series.
We first me Troy and Ruby in His Risk to Take from the Line of Duty series. Troy's a cop and in need of control who is dating Ruby, who was once a pool hustler and has a flare for the dramatic for the bad side of life. Even though they're complete opposite they complete each other to the point of a need or addiction to one another, which can help or hinder their relationship.
Ruby gets called back into her old life, where this puts strain on their relationship. However, even though their relationship was strained it did not effect their sex life at all.
Now, normally I love Ruby's strong independent ways but when I read this I was in a bit of a bad mood, which made me get a wee bit frustrated with her independent ways. Which came across as more stubborn and her bad choices led to a domino effect of bad consequences for others instead of just trusting in Troy and in them.
But these consequences have also opened up a new world of drama which will be the jumping point for this new series, which I can't wait to get my paws on and find out how it is all going to play out for all of them.
3.5 Stubborn Thumbs up!
