My Review:
Yes, I cried in this one. Yes, it's that good. There's just something so tragic about both Allison and Liam's background. These are wounded characters, but in the best way because regardless of how contentious things are between them in the beginning, they are perfect for one another.

The story starts with Allison and her morbid fear of water. After a near-drowning at age seven, every significant, life-altering (i.e. bad) event in Allison's life has happened in the midst of water...including finding out that her husband is a skeezy criminal...which threw her into labor...in the middle of a deluging rainstorm. She has a phobia, so it's a bit ironic when in the divorce and criminal proceedings with her husband that the only thing she gets out of it is a boat rental company located at the edge of a canal.

But Liam had dibs on this company first. He's run it and kept it afloat for 10 years and had an agreement from Allison's husband to sell it to him. Something that he wants Allison to honor. But Allison has nothing else...including a place to live (the business has an apartment located upstairs) so she refuses to honor that agreement.

If Liam was anyone else, he could just leave and find a new job and home (oh yeah, his home is one of the boats owned by the business, too...something else that was agreed upon to be sold to him). But Liam suffered a debilitating traumatic brain injury in the Canadian Army which left it impossible to do most jobs. The explanation of his issues left me in tears for what he lost...this guy...gah, it broke my heart.

I love how this story progressed. Even though both characters are physically drawn to the other, they truly hate each other's guts just because of the threat the other has on their very livelihood.

I love books with a strong heroine. Allison Whitely is just that. I also love books about tough, brooding military and ex-military men. That would describe Theo Lacroix. Put the two of them together and watch out! They are both injured souls…for different reasons - but it gives them commonality. What brings them into each others orbit is Cloud Nine, a boat charter business. Theo is managing it, with hopes of owning it one day. Allison is planning on running it as a source of income to support her and her 8-month-old daughter. Her husband is going to prison, so what choice does she have? It’s the only thing she got from him.

Theo is also a star player for the Destiny Falls ice hockey team, Bomb Squad, comprised of rugged military heroes. His teammates are counting on him to win an upcoming high profile hockey match. He does not need the distraction of a sexy woman that is trying to upend his entire lifestyle.

Theo and his Bomb Squad teammates Will, Liam, Brandon and the aging Duke were my favorite part of the book. The multi-personalities of this group of guys were fun and made their camaraderie believable. They all had demons, but managed to keep them at bay enough to maintain a facade of happiness and normalcy. Their backgrounds cemented them as a dynamic team. You will fall in love with these guys. I certainly did.

The relationship between the broody Theo and Allison worked. She stood up to him and knew how to push his buttons -which was just what he needed. The chemistry between these two was slow to develop, but when it ignited…watch out! It burned bright and hot!

This is the first book in the Bomb Squad series. I am very much looking forward to the continuation of the storyline.

REVIEW:
Risky Business is the first book in Melissa Cutler's new series, The Bomb Squad. I love Melissa Cutler's books and was really looking forward to her new series. After reading the first book I'm hooked. Hot military guys that play hockey together. Ummm...yep that sounds good to me. I loved it and can't wait for more books in the series. Risky Business is full of action, suspense, and steamy romance. It captured and held my attention from start to finish. I highly recommend this book for romantic suspense lovers.

Wow. This was such a great book! It had everything a good romance needs...drama, hot guys, great friends, motorcycles, and hockey. Really, what more do you need? Seriously, this is a great series about a group of guys who were wounded in war in some way who get together for friendship, brotherhood, and to play hockey. Each has a story and a different disability, some visible and some aren't, but they come together with the help of their coach, each other and hopefully a really great woman.

In this book, which is the first in the series, we meet Theo and Allison. Both have had a pretty rough time lately, but things heat up the second they meet for the first time. Without trying to give anything away I'll just say that they had a really rough time getting to know each other, but it pays off for both of them. Theo, who not only plays hockey, but speaks French and rides a motorcycle (that's like, my dream man!) is just trying to buy the company he's been running for the past five years. Allison just had the ultimate wake-up call about her husband and is trying to get back on solid ground. Once the two meet and try to figure it all out sparks are flying everywhere and it's so much fun to watch.

We also got a taste for the other guys on the team and Allison's new friends and you can see potential matchup that are gonna rock Destiny Falls. I can't wait to read more about these guys! As a disabled person myself, it's a great thing to see the main characters portrayed as heroes, but also guys that just want to get on with life and find the love they so deserve no matter their physical makeup.

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.
