Risky Play - New Release and Review

Extra time for Risky Play by Rachel Van Dyken

What they say: Even one-night stands deserve a second chance in New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken’s novel of sporting desire.

What else can a virgin do when she’s ditched at the altar? Seattle heiress Mackenzie Dupont is treating herself to a single-girl honeymoon in Mexico and a desire to relinquish her innocence to a gorgeous one-night stand. Fake names. True pleasure. But when she wakes up alone, Mackenzie realizes just how much anger is left in her broken heart.

Suffering a tragic personal loss, pro soccer player Slade Rodriguez has his reasons for vanishing without a goodbye. Right or wrong, he’s blaming the beautiful and infuriating stranger he never wants to see again. They’re both in for a shock when Mackenzie shows up as his new personal assistant. And they both have a lot to learn about each other. Because they share more than they could possibly know, including a common enemy who’s playing his own games. And he’s not afraid to get dirty.

Now there’s only one way Mackenzie and Slade can win: to trust in each other and to stop hiding from the lies they’ve told, the secrets they’ve kept, the mistakes they’ve made, and the attraction that still burns between them. 

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I do love a sports romance and I enjoyed Risky Play. I did find myself having to ignore the less than favourable view of my beloved blues (CFC forever!) even if the pre-events were based on exaggerated real life club scandals *cries*!

Anyway back to the story... Mackenzie has faced the horror of all horrors - she's been publicly jilted by her best friend *ahem* shady, social climbing fiancé so in a very rom-com move, she decides to use the honeymoon anyway!

Mack is all about wine - it's kinda her life world and family business, but she's thrown through a loop when she meets handsome stranger Hugo *ahem* Slade in disguise. She poses as Ashley, non-society girl and they have themselves all kinds of fun - for a bit!

Back home their paths cross again and they find their secrets exposed. I loved the banter, although Slade really needed an attitude adjustment for a lot of the story.

I honestly couldn't understand what she saw in Alton - but I had major issues with her father keeping him on! Just all the no!

More please!

4 Stars in my Sky!
