The McKinney Brothers, Book 2
by Claudia Connor
Release Date: February 3, 2015
When a McKinney brother falls in love, powerful emotion and overwhelming desire are never far behind.
Two hearts locked away . . . Hannah Walker spends her days coaching children through injury and trauma, one therapeutic horseback ride at a time. She knows all too well how violence can change a child and leave scars that never heal. It’s easy for her to relate to the kids; what isn’t easy is the thought of facing her own harrowing past.
Millionaire playboy Stephen McKinney could use a little coaching himself. Five years ago he encountered his most horrible nightmare—and the nightmare won. No matter what he achieves, nothing can make up for that awful night . . . or so he believes.
Both desperate for a second chance . . . Stephen is used to getting what he wants. And he wants Hannah. So when she turns him down, he’s intrigued. What he doesn’t know is that her secrets will lead him to a place he never wanted to go again . . . to a side of himself he’s tried to forget . . . a side that would scare Hannah away from ever loving him. Now his only chance to win her trust is to bare his soul, risking everything he tried so hard to protect.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
This is another fantastic book in Claudia Connor's The McKinney Brother series! Stephen has demons and they drove him away from his loving and supportive family. He finally is connecting with his family and that is due to meeting sweet yet scared Hannah. Hannah is a physical therapist to traumatized children who has been hiding from the world for years. She finds herself hesitantly intrigued by the playboy Stephen and with his help, she hopes to slowly emerge from the shadows of her past.
I was totally engrossed in the book by the end of the first chapter. This is an emotional rollercoaster of a romance that had me eagerly turning the pages as Stephen and Hannah both have violent pasts that make the building of their relationship turbulent. Worth the Risk does have a dark side as the two main characters must overcome their past traumas but there is also sweetness and love prevalent throughout the book that readers will come to love these very damaged yet strong characters! I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy romance, drama, and humor mixed with a little suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat while reading this wonderful story. NOTE: This is the second book in the series and though you do not need to read the first book to understand and enjoy this one, I recommend you take a look at it....it also was a fabulous story and I am positive you will enjoy it! ~Booklover Sue
