Release Blitz & Review: The Risk by Elle Kennedy

Get ready for another fun and flirty romance from New York Times bestselling author Elle Kennedy! 

Bad girl Brenna Jensen would never date a hockey player. It’s too much of a risk, and not just because her hockey-coach father would kill her if she ever got involved with one. She’s been there, done that, not looking for a repeat. But a certain college player has gotten under her skin. He’s cocky, insolent and all about the games…and yet resisting him is getting harder and harder… 





4.5 stars!! As always I fell in love with the characters that Elle Kennedy creates. Just when I think she can’t top one of her own characters she makes me fall for more. 

I absolutely love the stories that Elle Kennedy writes and The Risk is no different. The Risk was such a funny, sexy and great read. I’ve always loved the enemies to lovers trope so reading Elle Kennedy’s take on it AND a fake dating element had me hooked right away. Who doesn’t love both of those tropes? 

I loved Brenna and Jake, after their paths cross when Jake tries to warn her off one of his players, I was super intrigued on what would happen between the two and how it would happen. Their paths kept crossing even though they tried to act like they couldn’t stand each other. From reading the other book in the series, I could tell that there was chemistry between both of them and I was DYING to see how it all played out. Elle Kennedy didn’t disappoint. I loved every scene with them together. 

This book also portrays the misogynistic views that are still around in the sports industry. We see Brenna have to face this and I think the way she handled it was great. I think Elle Kennedy faced this issue perfectly. I really loved seeing the women characters in this book trying to break this view. As well as this, the book deals with some things that happen in the characters pasts and how you put the blame for things that are totally out of control on yourself. I really loved how this was written in the book and it really put things in perspective for the characters and even myself. 

As always, I’m in love with what Elle Kennedy has written and The Risk has definitely become one of my favourite books that she’s written. I just love everything about Brenna and Jake. I read this book in about 5 hours because I just could not put it down! I’m super excited for the next instalment and I am crossing my fingers and toes that the next book is going to be Hunters. I’m dying to read his story and see his happy ending play out because I think he deserves it after watching everything he’s gone through in this series. 

I didn’t think I could love anything like I love the Off-Campus series but Briar U is coming close….
