Review: Risk of Exposure by Emmy Curtis + Giveaway

May 4th, 2016 by Debbie's World of Books


About the Book:

He is a trained professional—but nothing can prepare him for the hottest mission of his life. Assigned to protect his boss’s daughter, British former SAS operative Malone Garrett breaks the first rule of covert surveillance—don’t make contact. And especially don’t take your mark out to dinner, then agree to a rooftop quickie.  But now that Mal has Abby in his arms, he has no intention of ever letting her go.

Abby Baston told herself it was a hit and quit, a one-nighter with a hot, handsome stranger whose hands were trained to take action. Working undercover for the CIA, she can’t risk anything more. But when an international crisis ignites, Abby must make a call: trust Mal with her secret—and her heart—and partner up, or lose everything in a split second . . .

My review:

Rating: ★★★★☆

This was my first Emmy Curtis book and I have to say I really enjoyed it. Both Abby and Malone are both kick butt characters that I really enjoyed. Though there were a few moments with Abby that felt off to me. For the most part she’s strong and smart but then she pulls stunts like threatening Malone that she’s going to call her daddy and make up some lies about Malone. It seems like an underhanded tact to take out of character with everything else she does. There’s also a point at the end where again she seems to morph from a strong female character to someone who runs off with her tail between her legs.

Malone on the other hand I fell in love with. He’s a jerk a lot of the times but at the same time you have to sympathize with him because you know it’s his defense mechanism. I loved the way he protected Abby and knew just how to shake her out of her nerves or fears even if that did mean making her think he was a jerk. The chemistry between the two was smoking and I loved watching them together.

The story itself was interesting and had a few twists that were surprising. I would have given this book a full 5 stars if it weren’t for those few inconsistencies in Abby’s character and the one at the end in particular bugged me. Still a great read.
