The Risk by Elle Kennedy Book Summary

A new standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy! 

Everyone says I’m a bad girl. They’re only partly right—I don’t let fear rule me, and I certainly don’t care what people think. But I draw the line at sleeping with the enemy. As the daughter of Briar’s head hockey coach, I’d be vilified if I hooked up with a player from a rival team.

And that’s who Jake Connelly is. Harvard’s star forward is arrogant, annoying, and too attractive for his own good. But fate is cruel—I require his help to secure a much-coveted internship, and the sexy jerk isn’t making it easy for me.

I need Connelly to be my fake boyfriend.

For every fake date…he wants a real one.

Which means this bad girl is in big trouble. Nothing good can come from sneaking around with Jake Connelly. My father would kill me, my friends will revolt, and my post-college career is on the line. But while it’s getting harder and harder to resist Jake’s oozing sex appeal and cocky grin, I refuse to fall for him.

That’s the one risk I’m not willing to take.

Really good !Again it is a hit with me ! Love the humour in all of Elle’s book! So much fun !.Score: 4/5

Jake & BrennaEnjoyed the chemistry between the two - it was great to see how sweet Jake really was with Brenna, something that he usually hid from everyone else. Brenna’s character was empowering in the fact that she knew what she wanted and went for it, no apologies. She’s fierce and bold and unapologetic. Jake’s character was also well written and he pursued Brenna even though he was captain of the Harvard team and Brenna’s dad coached Briar’s team. He has an easy confidence about him, a surety of who he is and what he wants. I felt like the only downfall was there was such a build up towards Jake’s future with the Oilers and then in the epilogue nothing was mentioned about him going pro at all or how things were with Brenna..Score: 5/5

LOVED IT4.5 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…. *ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review*.Score: 4/5

Loved it.I was so into this book, I read it all in one go because I had to know how it finished. But now I’m disappointed there isn’t more. 😫 Would love a sequel to this!.Score: 5/5

Great read with all the right feels4.5 Stars for The Risk by Elle Kennedy which is book 2 in her Briar U series. Once again this author gave me a book I couldn’t put down and yet another couple to fall in love with. Brenna and Jake are perfect for each other problem is Jake plays for the wrong hockey team so Brenna ends up sleeping with the enemy..... Jake is making a name for himself and he is destined for the NFL, nothing is going to get in the way of his dream well that is until he meets and falls for a sassy brunette named Brenna. It was never meant to be real Brenna needed to fake date Jake but as they got to know each other feelings came into play feelings they weren’t meant to feel..... The chemistry is sizzling, the players adorable and I loved seeing Brenna win in her chosen career which by the way is normally very much a man’s world. This book has all the feels I look for in a great read and this series is becoming a must read for me. If you love hockey, sports romance or NA romance this should be an automatic one click you won’t be disappointed..Score: 5/5

Absolutely hilarious, loved every second of it!4.5 Hilarious Heartwarming Stars! When I found out that the next book in the Briar U series was going to be the coach’s daughter Brenna’s book, I honestly couldn’t wait to read this! I loved her sassy smart mouth in The Chase so I just knew that this book would be good. And oh my goodness Elle did not disappoint! I was hooked from the word go, I read this in one sitting devouring Brenna and Jake’s story. I love a good enemies to lovers book and this will most definitely be added to one of my favourites. The chemistry between Brenna and Jake is off the charts, and the back and forth banter between the two just makes this book even more. It was without a doubt absolutely hilarious! I loved getting to see all the characters from The Chase too, and they had some hilarious moments as well, to the point I was laughing so much I had tears and was fighting to stay quiet so I didn’t wake my kids because I was reading so late. I am loving these characters and this series and I highly recommend that you one click this now..Score: 5/5

4 “Worth The Risk” StarsAs a staunch hockey lover and supporter of Briar U, Harvard hotshot Jake Connelly is public enemy number one where Brenna Jensen is concerned. If you’ve read The Chase you’ll remember we were teased by what was to come with their sharp back and forth. The teams are long-time rivals and with the amounting tension rising due to them being set to face off on the ice, it’s both a nuisance and inconvenience that circumstances have thrown them into a situation that requires them to enter a fake relationship. Admittedly the nuisance and inconvenience is one sided as Jake loves nothing more than rubbing Brenna up the wrong way. She’s feisty and self-assured, and his attraction to her means he’s more than happy to be her fake boyfriend if it affords him the opportunity to get to know her better with one of his mandatory real dates. The banter of was off the charts and I loved how these two bounced off one another. Combined with the fantastic secondary characters (shout out to Hollis & Rupi) who brought the laughs, The Risk has been my favourite outing with the series so far. There were some serious moments when it came to Brenna’s ex and her strained relationship with her father, as well as dealing with gender equality in the world of sports broadcasting. I felt these added to the substance of the story and made for a well-rounded read. The momentum to this series is well and truly picking up and I’m waiting with baited breathe for the puck to drop with the next instalment..Score: 4/5
