I first learned about Heather B. Moore’s new contemporary series from another blogger’s First Line Friday’s post. The concept sounded good and the cover is eye-catching. This is a quick read with likable characters in a small town setting.
In My Opinion
Friends who might have become more if one of them hadn’t ruined everything, Jeff and Alicia haven’t seen each other, haven’t even spoken for ten years. But Alicia has returned to Pine Valley to care for her mother and who does she run into but Jeff Finch.
Jeff is determined to offer Alicia a long overdue apology. He let his hormones destroy the best thing in his life and peer pressure kept him from righting a wrong.
Heather B. Moore’s clean romance is slightly predictable (in the romance department) but definitely a sweet and touching read. Yet her insights into the psychology behind the addiction of Alicia’s mother are on point and eye-opening.
From the beginning of the story, I wished the best for Alicia—and part of that best is, indeed, Jeff. A short book that will keep you warm for an evening, Worth the Risk is worth the read.
I receive complimentary books from publishers, publicists, and/or authors, including NetGalley. I am not required to write positive reviews. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
About the Book
WORTH THE RISK is Alicia and Jeff’s Story
When Alicia moves back to Pine Valley to help her mom through a serious addiction, the last person she wants to see is her teenage crush, Jeff Finch, who destroyed their friendship in one single disastrous night. But Alicia is determined to not let anything about Jeff affect her, especially since she hasn’t seen him in ten years. All she knows is that he’s living a successful and charmed life, and she is more than happy to keep anything between them in the past. But when he shows up with a date at the restaurant where she works, Alicia realizes she’s still not over her feelings, and Jeff is definitely looking at her in a way he never has before.
