At Her Own Risk ~Rachael Duncan

That’s all it was supposed to be. No strings attached, no feelings, no heartache. 
But if I thought Sean Riley would be content having only parts of me, I was dead wrong. His persistence wore me down and I found myself in the one situation I was trying to avoid. 
Little does he know a life with me will lead to nothing but disappointment and heartbreak. He’s a good man and deserves everything I can’t give him. Not because I don’t want to, but because I’m unable. 
Pushing him away in the beginning was to protect me, now I’m trying to protect him as I gear up for the fight of my life. 
A fight I could lose. 
Getting into a relationship was my risk, but as things get worse, I’m not the only one who will have something to lose. 
I just hope it’s worth it.

Can we first talk about this cover? I absolutely love it! Just gorgeous! I was super excited to read about Paige and Sean's stories since I have kind of become invested in all the characters from the "Risk" series, but I do think this can be read as its own stand alone. 

I absolutely love Sean. Usually, I tend to find myself relating to or rooting for the heroine in the story, but in this one, I was all about Sean. He was so determined, dedicated and completely head over heels for Paige. He would walk through hell and back for that girl, even though she tried, several times, to push him away. He was committed and just a really good guy. He has this huge heart, coupled with his sexy good looks and I couldn't help but swoon. 

Paige is a hard nut to crack. She didn't let her guard down easily and there were times I wondered if she ever would. I mean, Sean had more faith in the girl than I did at times. I really wanted to know what made her so gun-shy about men. We have all had our fair share of breakups, but she really just wanted to keep things fun and in the friend zone. Therefore, I loved Sean even more when he broke down Paige's walls and set out to prove how different he was than the other guys. 

While Paige had her walls, she also had this undeniable strength and her own determination. While breaking down at times, she still was able to concur and face some tragedies that would make a lesser woman give up. I was definitely proud of Paige.

There was just the right amount of sex, angst, love, tragedy and fun that balanced this book out nicely. It just flowed and with the flashbacks, I could still follow the story line and all the characters. I definitely can not wait for the next one of this series!
