Summary

From New York Times best-selling author K. Bromberg comes a new, sexy standalone about taking chances and finding love when it's least expected. Or wanted. 

This whole contest was supposed to be easy. I know, I know. Famous last words. 

It's a long story, but I messed up at work. Big time. To earn back the trust of my boss, I promised to save one of our magazines. Yep. That Hot Dad contest you've seen advertised all over the place was my idea. And if I'm successful, if I'm able to increase our online readership, then I get a shot at my dream job. 

But the one thing I never expected to happen, happened: Contestant number 10, Grayson Malone. Hello, Mr. Difficult. And did I mention sexy as hell? 

Unfortunately he knows me. The old me, anyway. And while we might be older now, I remind him of before. Of the woman who broke his heart, who hardened him, and who left him alone to raise the cutest little boy I've ever seen. 

But I don't want a relationship. And I definitely don't fall for single dads with baggage. Even ones with chiseled abs and killer smiles. 

But he got to me. They got to me. Him and his son and their messy, crazy life. But I got to him too. I see the stolen glances. I feel the walls he built start to crumble. I recognize that there's an unexpected beauty to the chaos in his life. 

And now that the contest is about to end, we're left to decide whether the last six months were just fun or if what we have is worth risking it all.

One of my favourite audios so far this year

Well, I got this book as a beach read for my holidays, but once I started it, I couldn’t stop. I don’t go away for 2 more days! I was completely hooked. Grayson Malone and Sydney Thornton, a match made in heaven, such a shame they were both too stubborn and set in their ways to see it. I loved the characters, the story, the writing, the whole package. I loved the previous 2 Malone stories, but I think this quite possibly tops them both. Sexy dad, enemies to lovers, forbidden romance, interfering family and a cute as a button 8 year old boy. The story was emotional, funny and sexy, all rolled into one. One of my top audios so far this year. As usual perfect narration from Zachary Webber and Grace Grant.

Amazing story, not the most engaging narrators

Really enjoyed the story, found the narrators to be slightly robotic at times. Still worth the listen.

This book is definitely Worth the Risk!

Kristy Bromberg knows how to write a great love story. Those Malone brothers are swoon worthy and as a cherry on top little Luke Malone comes in and steals your heart. This book takes to the edge of an emotional journey and saves you in the nick of time. This is a great story and a must read. Zachary and Grace give a great performance.

Worth the Risk is DEFINITELY Worth the Risk!

Worth the Risk is DEFINITELY a book that is worth the risk if you have never read any of K. Bromberg's books! It is a funny, frustrating, heartbreaking, sweet cry of a story.

Grayson Malone is a hero...but don't ask him or he'll tell you different. His biggest fan is his 8 year old son, Luke. Being both a single dad and a medieval pilot brings along a lot of responsibility, stress, and baggage.
Sidney Thorton is back in her hometown trying to right a wrong career move when she realizes that that one wrong move might have been the rightest wrong she ever made.

I knew that I was going to love this story but I didn't realize that I was going to LOVE this story! Grayson was frustrating but he had his reasons and I can't fault him for feeling the way that he did. Of course, a little communication would have helped but then we wouldn't have all the angst that we love to hate, right? Sidney...I know that some would say that she was selfish and entitled and while I kind of see that I more so saw where she had grown up some and while she still had her moments, she wasn't the same girl with a silver spoon in her hand that she was in high school. Then we have Luke. Oh. My. Goodness. How anyone wouldn't fall right in love with him I will never know. He is 8 and while he knows he is loved by his dad, there is nothing like a mother's love and he longs for it. He broke my heart and he made me literally laugh out loud.

Grace Grant and Zachary Webber are wonderful at not only the narration, in general, but really making you feel what the characters are feeling. You really can't go wrong with those two.

Worth the Listen

I just finished listening to Worth the Risk on Audible and it was incredible! Grace Grant and Zachary Webber did a great job of bringing Sidney and Grayson's story to life! They show so much emotion at the right moments and made me really feel the pain the characters felt and the love they felt for one another. My favorite moments in the book came at the hands of a charming 8-year old boy. Luke definitely steals the show!

I highly recommend this audio!

Angst

This book was fairly long and drawn out compared to the other book “ Combust” from the series. I also felt like the demons the main character Grayson had to face were legitimate. However, it was frustrating how incredibly irrational he could be with the way he handled them. My favorite character in the book was Grayson’s son Luke. He gave the book the necessary comic relief through all the angst. I enjoyed the book and the ending but I think the push pull back and forth from the main characters was a bit exhausting at times.

Mixed feelings

This one had it's moments. I had a difficult time falling for these characters. Too much angst for me. Most of the time when I did, it was with scenes or chapters that included or centered on Luke. Then another chapter would start and I found myself tuning out. Not sure why. I was very disappointed with the epilogue. Gave 4 stars...5 narration/3 story

A quick point about Mr. Webber. He does the best emotional scenes....emotional scenes with the voice cracking and also his kid voice is spot on! Incredible job voicing Luke!

Worth the Listen!

I really enjoyed the story of Grayson and Sydney. Grayson Malone is the third of the Malone brothers. The brothers enter Grayson in a Hot Dad contest set up by a parenting magazine to try to increase readership and online presence. Sydney Thorton has come back to Sunnyville to run the magazine's contest in order to get an editor's job promised by her father. Grayson has an 8 year old son, Luke, who looks at every woman as a prospective mother. Sydney didn't think she liked kids but Luke has changed her mind. Grayson knew Sydney from high school and thinks she's just like his ex-wife, a rich, spoiled woman of privilege and tries to protect Luke and himself from falling for Sydney. As usual, K. Bromberg's writing had me laughing and crying with this story. I liked the narration by Grace Grant and Zachary Webber that brought the story to life for me.

great story

the struggle is real and I appreciate that it is shown that even when you block it out, it doesn't mean you've truly dealt with it and let it go. I really liked the characters and how their development went. Luke is my favorite! Such a great kid!

I am a big fan of Zachary Webber and he was great.

I listened to this because of Zachary Webber. I love everything he narrates. I still have to get used to Grace Grant. I've listened to her before but skipped thru my first book with her. I thought the story was different and enlightening. And the son in this story was great. I wanted to rate this higher but I am still warming up to Ms. Grant. Zachary as usual was fantastic!!! But it was a great story line and loved the brothers..they were funny. I am new to the romance novels on audible but enjoying them and learning who the better narrators are. I think Erin Malon would have been the better love interest narrator but that's just me. I love those 2 together.

10 STARS!!

Let me make this really easy. Read this book! This story had it all. Grace Grant was great and Zachary Webber was superb and totally sexy, as usual. If you don’t read it, you’re simply missing out.
