When 22-year-old Summer Stafford’s parents split halfway through her senior year at college, Summer’s world is rocked. Everything she thought she knew—heck, everything she thought she wanted for her own life—feels like a lie. The truth is love is a risk. And the true kind, the kind that lasts, might even be a fairy tale.
Reeling from the divorce, Summer derails her own future by breaking up with her parent-approved boyfriend and giving up her lifelong plans for a big-city career. She moves back home, business degree in hand. Dad needs her to fill the gaps her mother left behind; Summer needs to find who she is outside of the cookie-cutter life that failed so miserably for her parents.
Ford O’Neal’s future involves one person: himself. He doesn’t have a permanent address and he definitely doesn’t commit. To a place or a person. Raised by hippies, he plans just far enough ahead to secure his next stop, this one landing him at a work-study program at Heritage Plantation where he can grow his own herbal and medicinal creations.
Summer is gorgeous and smart and fun to be with, the perfect way to pass five months. It won’t be love—Ford’s got too many things to accomplish, too many places to go, before he settles down. Yet Summer pulls him in, challenging him to rethink his own philosophy.
When Ford’s five months are up, each of them must decide if love is really worth the risk.
Oh My! This story was amazing and intense from the first page until the very end. The author; Heather Hildenbrand, kept me on the edge with this incredible relationship! I was surprised to fall in love so fast with Summer and Ford, they both brings a lot to the book with their very own personalities.
At first I thought: oh, another romance book, but quickly I realised that Summer and Ford story wasn't the usual kind. Even if I didn't have and lived the kind of trouble Summer had with her family, I found myself attached and connected to her. I was really intrigued by her and when she met Ford; my attention was even more acute!
Ford is the perfect representation on a real male in a romance. He's a fine man, strong, independent and he want to live his life the way he wants it. Every thing about him attracts me.
This story was cute, sweet, beautiful and full of blooming love. It was the perfect match between the characters, the storyline, the humour and the creativity of Heather Hildenbrand.
The thing that stood out was all the steps, tests and everything Summer and Ford had to go through to make their relation happen. It was new, refreshing and that thing really turned me on the whole time. This was one of the easiest read I had for a long time. Everything was fluid, consistent and most of all, lovely!
It was my first book from the author Heather Hildenbrand and I will definitely look forward for other titles from her! If everything she wrote is as good and entertaining as A Risk Worth Taking, Heather Hildenbrand will take an interesting place on my authors list!
I truly recommend this book to every romance lovers! A Risk Worth Taking will bring you joy, satisfaction and cheer up your day! A must-read!
