*I received a free copy to read & review for Wicked Reads Review Team*

Carnal Risk is the first book in the Club Altura series, I was hooked by the yummy cover and I actually enjoyed the story!!
I'm sure you can empathize, choosing a book by it's cover is never a guarantee of a good book ;)

Garrett Emerson is a self-made billionaire and CEO of Emerson Industries, he's also an adrenaline junkie that appreciates the finer things in life such as: sky diving, base jumping, etc. While sky-diving with his best-friend, an unfortunate "accident" occurs, leading to Evan's untimely death. Not only his best-friend, but also CTO with a hand in many different projects, Evan's passing affects all aspects of Emerson Industries day-to-day business including secret government contracts and top-secret research.

Selby Reynolds, has been loaned by her boss and Garrett's close friend Lars (of DLar-Tech), to temporarily step into Even's position and find his permanent replacement. Not an adrenaline junkie, Selby is more conservative then any other Emerson employee, but just as adept at technological issues.

Together, the chemistry between Garrett and Selby is explosive. There weren't any lulls in this story. Non-stop action between the suspense angle (was Evan's death an accident?), the dare-devil antics, and steamy romance kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting more. For once, I've read and enjoyed a billionaire romance that broke the mold!
I was slightly confused on the significance of Club Altura, itself. A couple of scenes took place there and I got the general gist of it, but other then a meeting of like-minded dare-devils I never really understood the importance.
Nonetheless, this was an excellent story that contained humor, action, adventure, and steamy romance - it was an all-around gripping story!

Carnal Risk is a sultry story between a broken woman trying to keep her head above her fears and a man who chases adrenaline faster than American Pharaoh wins a horse race. I liked that just because Selby had so many fears and phobias because what was done to her she was written strong and fighting those same fears. Garrett is still mourning his friend Evan and dealing with his business and trying to prove his friend was murdered, it made him a bit of a grump. He is also seriously dominant and that could translate into a jerk at times, but with his personality it fits. The story was entertaining and though some parts were predictable I enjoyed reading it and seeing Selby become stronger and Garrett help her with her fears.

Garrett is an extreme sports junkie and makes tons of money from like minded people by making gear for their crazy and exhilarating life style as well as top secret military projects. When his friend, ex military and professional sky diver dies during a bad dive he immediately suspects murder. His friend Lars wants Garrett to bring in his own friend Selby who has mad skills at hacking, but more importantly she can temporarily do Evan's job while she looks for his replacement. The only problem is Lars knows Garrett wont give her a chance because she doesn't engage in their life style. Selby takes risks in her own way so Lars shows him before ever bringing her up. Seeing it for himself Garrett knows Selby takes risks in her own way. And he also sees he wants her, badly.

The passion between the two is astronomical, but lies and secrets will come out. But will near out of control passion be enough? The story heats up pretty fast in more than one way and when it does things will not be the same again. I recommend this book to those who like a romance with some adrenaline rushing excitement and spice.

This book is fantastic!!!! This is Kym Grosso’s first foray into contemporary erotic romance & she hit it out of the park!!!!

Garrett Emerson is the CEO of Emerson Enterprises, a multi-million dollar company. He loves all types of extreme sports. It’s not just a hobby for him, it’s a way of life. When his best friend & CTO of his company, Evan Tredioux, dies in a skydiving accident he is convinced to bring in Selby Reynolds, an executive recruiter & information systems expert, to find Evan’s replacement.

Selby Reynolds doesn’t do risk. The only excitement she allows in her life is her white-hat hacking & singing in a burlesque club on occasion. When her best friend & boss shows up at her club with another man she doesn’t realize that it is billionaire playboy owner of Emerson Enterprises, Garrett Emerson, that she gives the show of a lifetime to.

These two have really great chemistry. This book has everything; adventure, suspense, great sex, this thing has it all!!!!! Get in on the fun from the beginning on what looks to be a fanfreakingtastic new series!!!!

I wish I could give it 10 stars!!!!!

3-3.5 stars. Selby Reynolds, a technology expert, meets Garrett Emerson because she works for her friend Lars, who is also friends with Garrett. Garrett's Chief Technology Officer for his company, his best friend Evan, recently passed and Garrett needs someone to fill his role. Selby is a rule follower and doesn't step out of her comfort zone too often, never mind seek thrilling activities or put herself at risk. Club Altura is not a sex club, but rather a group founded by Garrett of people who all engage in those type of high adrenaline activities, which can include sex. Selby isn't someone who fits the profile of someone who would belong in that group. Regardless, Garrett and Selby cannot deny their attraction or chemistry to each other as Garrett tries to unravel Selby's inner fears and push her towards opening up more and being receptive to those activities. Selby has secrets that could change how Garrett sees her and possibly ruin what they have developing between one another. This book is part romance, part romantic suspense. There's nothing not to like about this story, I just couldn't quite engage in it or with the characters and found myself skimming through several parts of it. Otherwise, the storyline is interesting and the characters have depth, it just wasn't something I felt particularly invested in.
