Title: Worth the Risk
Series: The McKinney Brothers #2
Author: Claudia Connor
Publisher: Loveswept
 Release Date: February 3, 2015


New York Times bestselling author Claudia Connor follows up her heartfelt debut, Worth the Fall, with a novel about Matt’s brother, Stephen—and 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.

This is what happens when the Hallmark Channel meets Cinemax after Dark. You get a mixture of innocently sweet and panties on fire dirty. No matter which romance genre you desire, this book pretty much covers it. Hannah sums it up pretty well...

'She glanced over. Lord, he was hot on a horse. Cowboy. Playboy. Warrior. CEO. Master of his domain. She could only shake her head.'

Stephen (sigh). I tell you those McKinney brothers... what a gene pool. I fell in love with Matt in book 1 and fell for Stephen just as fast and equally as hard. I loved watching him go from playboy to lover boy. Wearing a suit and driving a sports car, to trading in his dress shoes for cowboy boots as he hopped out of his big black truck. The author gives you such intricate detail that it's impossible not to drool over him. FYI-motorcyle scene is H.O.T.

Is this book “Worth The Risk”? Absolutely! I read this book in one sitting. It can be read as a standalone but these McKinney brothers are HOT so why not just enjoy them both!

Claudia Connor is an amazing writer and I promise you this book will not disappoint.
