A Risk Worth Taking could be anyone's love story. And that's exactly why I liked it so much. It felt real. Too often, I'm turned off if a story is too dramatic or over the top. If I wanted that, I'd watch Jerry Springer. But Heather Hildenbrand did everything so right with A Risk Worth Taking. I've never read her before, but I can promise you after this one, I'm going to seeking out her other books!

Contemporaries have been my comfort zone lately, and this book fits perfectly into the genre. It's the quintessential sweet and cute romance. I connected with Summer a lot. Our stories are similar, and I felt an instant connection with her. This book offers up more than just romance, but the chemistry between Ford and Summer is on point. It was a thrill to read their relationship and watch it develop.

The pacing was amazing. Heather Hildenbrand definitely got my interest from the start. It made me so happy to read this story. It was a beautiful journey that left a smile on my face. Even if you're not a fan of contemporaries, A Risk Worth Taking will make you fall in love with them!

Review for Ramblings From This Chick. ramblingsfromthischick.blogspot.com

Heather Hildenbrand is another new to me author, so I had no idea what I was in for with A Risk Worth Taking. I did enjoy this book, and I really liked the characters. I also really liked the storyline and the fact that this book is about finding yourself and enjoying the journey. That being said though, I did have some things that were problems for me and they kept me from being able to rate this one higher.

When Summer goes home for Christmas break, the last thing she expects is that her parents have decided to separate and get a divorce. Without knowing the details or having any idea that there were problems, Summer is completely thrown. So when she finishes college the next semester, she decides to move back home and help her dad run the family farm. She is excited to return to her family and friends, but she is also feeling lost. Not only did she not plan on ending up back at home, but she also isn't speaking to her mother. Her best friend/almost brother Casey introduces her to the new guy Ford. The attraction between Ford and Summer is instant, but with him leaving in a few months they both know that nothing too serious can happen between them. Summer vows to stay away, but Ford knows that what he feels for her is something that he isn't about to pass on. Ford begins to pursue Summer, and it isn't long before the two of them are enjoying the time together. But once they start spending time together and the feelings grow, they both become much more attached to the other than they ever expected. Can Summer convince Ford that he doesn't need to keep traveling and that he should stay and make a life with her? Will the love the feel be enough for both of them to take a risk on?

Ford and Summer are so cute!! A story based on finding out who you truly are and what you truly want in life. This is the perfect love story! Ford is a great guy who was scared of love because he see's what it's done to his family especially his dad. Summer is scared to turn out like her mom and she's upset or rather pissed off her parents ended their marriage like they did. Yet Ford was a risk she took that ended up helping them both in the long run. Their love story it's perfect. I was torn up towards the end and I felt my heart break, but Heather pieced it all back together with a spectacular ending. A love like Summer and Ford is a love I want to experience!

Fear... fear of change, fear of love, fear of hurt. This book shows how easy it is to be ruled by fear in our everyday lives. Some of us realize and acknowledge the fear, others mistakenly believe they are living without it, ignorant in their denial.

Summer's entire life is turned upside-down when she is blindsided by her parent's divorce. Everything she has always believed about relationships, about what she wants is now in turmoil. She goes home to help out with the family farm, "save" her dad, and to discover a new Summer. A new intern, Ford O’Neal, becomes an unexpected complication to her life. Ford claims to be fearless; always looking to the next adventure. He's not going to be trapped into a boring, routine family life like his dad. He's her perfect match, teaching her how to really live again.

Summer and Ford have instant chemistry and challenge each other like no one that either has ever met. It's inevitable that they fall in love, but as they do, which will turn out to be the braver individual? Isn't trusting your heart and your life to another the bravest adventure anyone can have? Sometimes fear holds us back from the most important part of living without us ever realizing it. We make the greatest mistakes out of fear.

Entertaining read! These two characters and their intersecting lives makes for a good, sweet story.

Let me start by saying I'm not a sappy romantic who gets the warm fuzzies. I am almost totally against romance...well in real life. However in a book, it is tolerable and while reading A Risk Worth Taking, I'll admit, it made me feel butterflies and see rainbows.

Heather Hildenbrand, tells a story of two people on journeys rediscovery. Of course, all which makes for a cute love story waiting to happen. I love the way the characters were developed. Sometimes writers will leave out details that are needed to make the story seem more "real". Hildenbrand made that look easy.

I was mostly drawn to Summer and Ford's relationship, how it evolved and how they grew individually. What started out as a friendship, spending time together unfolded into something much more. Reading their moments brought an instant smile to my face reminding me that happiness is not lost, that our lives have their own path and love can show up even when you're not looking for it. My favorite scene would have to be "in the mud"...not a spoiler, just something you need to read :).

After reading the book, I realized that some things are worth the risk. Even if you are afraid of the outcome, you will never know what could have been if you don't take a chance.

You don't want to RISK not meeting Summer and Ford, read the book today!
