Trace Meyers doesn’t do relationships. Never has and never will. All he wants is a good time and he has no problem walking away from a satisfied woman. And they are always satisfied. Until fate places Sophie Burke in his path. Literally. She is young and beautiful and everything he thinks he doesn’t deserve.
Too bad he can’t stop thinking about her.
Sophie Burke feels an instant connection with Trace the minute she lays eyes on him. She’s not fooled by the act he puts on for those around him.
She may be inexperienced but she’s not stupid and she knows deep down he must feel it too.
She’s running out of patience and he’s running out of reasons to stay away.
A chemistry like theirs could ignite a passion and need that neither of them have ever experienced before.
Are they willing to take the risk?

4 Stars!!!! So sweet and sexy! “Worth The Risk” Blue Falls Two by Stella James.
*I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review*
“Worth The Risk” is the second in the Blue Falls series. Stella James is a fairly new author and this book is her second as well. This fast, steady-paced story with likable characters and little to no angst features the story of Trace and Sophie. I say “little angst” because each time a conflict arose, it was resolved quickly enough to satisfy me each time. As with most novellas, because they are so short, we don’t expect a lot of back story. So of course expecting none I was pleasantly surprised. The author gives enough to paint a small picture of the past. I was able to understand and connect better to Sophie and Trace as a result of this. Their personalities and emotions made more sense that way.
In this story our couple got together pretty quickly and throughout the story I kept waiting for that proverbial “ball” to drop and tear them apart. But as I said earlier, any conflicts that arose were resolved quickly enough but still giving the factors of concern, and then satisfaction with a smile.
Sophie…from the beginning I mistakingly assumed she would be a timid character with dependency issues. (You’ll have to read to find out why) But Sophie was anything but. She was bold, assertive and determined to get her man!
Trace……my favorite character. Not just because he was sexy, gorgeous and tatted. Of course that was a perk! Trace had an alpha personality, yes, still he was extremely sensitive to Sophie’s feelings. With Sophie, Trace could let his guard down. It was he who I worried would not have his HEA.
“I wanted to ruin Sophie for any other man but I’m pretty sure she just ruined me.”
The supporting characters, two of which featured in the previous book: Lily and Cole, were a nice addition to the story. Mona was ballsy and funny and her story is told in the next book, “Clipped.” And thens there’s Kate. We have gotten a couple of teasers in the first two books about her story which is titled “Worth The Fight.” I think I am anticipating Kate’s story the most.
All that being said, I smiled a lot, especially toward the end. Trace is definitely “book boyfriend” material. I totally recommend this book to anything looking for a quick sexy read and a satisfying HEA. I loved the epilogue…..
