Series: Red Card #1
March 19, 2019
I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I don’t know how. I don’t know why. I have no excuses for myself. None. Nada. However, as much as it might cause shaming of the worst kind, I have to admit to the fact that yes, Risky Play was my first time diving into a Rachel Van Dyken book. And honestly, someone needs to throat punch me. I had no idea what I was missing out on!
Risky Play was full of EVERYTHING! It was sweet and swoony and then also angsty and emotional. It pull all the right emotions and gave all the amazing feels we all love when reading a good romance!
Now I have to warn you guys, our swoony hero, Slade, isn’t so swoony at times. He starts off as everyone’s dream guy, but quickly loses points on the swoon-meter. He ends up needing a lot of redemption (if I’m being honest) and in the end I feel like he pulls it off. So I guess what I’m trying to say is – stick with him my friends. He is worth it but it’ll take some patience.
Our heroine, Mackenzie, however is perfectly likable the whole time. She does exactly what I’m asking all of you to do. She sticks with Slade and give him the grace and patience he needs but doesn’t necessarily deserve at times. Don’t worry though, she can dish it as well as she can take it. She makes sure to put Slade in his place.
Overall I thought this book was a gem. I’m glad I finally got to read a Rachel Van Dyken book and I can not wait to continue on with the series as they become available!
