In the follow-up to Risking It All, hailed by Lauren Layne as “the perfect escapist read,” the heartthrobs of the Naked Men blog and podcast get a little too real about friendship, love, and sex. For one wealthy bachelor, the trouble starts when all three collide. . . .
After narrowly surviving a bus crash in high school with his best friends, science geek Knox Davis resolved to become so successful that he could have anything and everything he wants. Now he’s über-wealthy, a huge business success, and a notorious ladies’ man. Knox refuses to limit himself to one woman, but when his latest conquest—a blond beauty from the Alaskan bush—challenges his superficial ways, Knox begins to see the world through her eyes, and finds he likes what he sees.
A nurturer at heart, Madison Abbott wants to put down roots. She left Alaska to meet Mr. Right—and to track down Logan, the half-brother she’s never met. Instead, she finds Knox. Although the sexy-as-sin bachelor may not seem like marriage material, Madison’s starting to think that Knox is The One. But Knox refuses to settle down, especially once he learns that Madison is his best friend’s little sister. Now it’s up to her to convince Knox that she’s everything he really wants.
This is the first book I’ve read by Christi Barth. Although the second book in this series it can be read as a stand-alone. I really like author’s writing style – that fact that both main characters were extremely smart made this book seem more intelligent than other books. The dialogue was quick and snappy and quite funny at times. At first I wasn’t too sure I liked either of the featured characters but because I liked the author’s writing I stuck with it. I’m glad I did – both characters we redeemed by the end. I was able to figure out the brother aspect pretty quickly but it was fun seeing the execution of it. My only complaint is that I wish there was a little bit more resolution (and an epilogue).
I read an Advanced Copy of this book for free from the author/publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review (which means an epilogue may have been added for the final version – IDK)
