I love books where the couple starts out as best friends and realizes there is something more between them. That is the case with Kyle Morgan and his Cecilia Anton. They have been best friends for twenty years. He has been fighting his attraction to Ceci for the past three years. She has recently discovered her feelings for Kyle after a bad break-up with her boyfriend…one that leaves her pregnant and alone. She appears on Kyle’s doorstep, desperate for a friend. Of course he is there for her, though he has been keeping his distance lately because he has such a hard time controlling his feelings for her. Now that she is pregnant and alone, he intends to step up to the plate and be there for her.
I married my best friend, and I KNOW that those are the best, most solid marriages. I don’t understand the trope of friends not being able to take their relationship further for fear of losing the friendship. Excuse me? What happens to the friendship when these feelings are present and you DON’T act upon them? What happens when the person you care the most about moves on to another relationship? What does THAT do to the friendship? I didn’t have a lot of patience with the back and forth debate of not developing the romantic side of their relationship for the sake of their friendship. I felt that Ceci went overboard with that theme. I was relieved when that drama was over. That was the ONLY negative to this story. It was a mild aggravation. I still loved the story.
RISKING IT ALL has a layer of mystery and suspense that adds to the plot, and keep the pages turning – although the relationship between Kyle and Ceci is steamy enough to hold your interest. As far as book boyfriends go, I would definitely rate Kyle in the top ten. He was a sexy cop, with a soft side that made you love him. Sigh…
J.M. Stewart writes a solid and sexy romance, with just enough heat. It has a beginning, a middle and an end. There is no cliff-hanger. I loved it, and will be looking forward to reading more from this author.

Cecelia has hit rock bottom; her last blood relative is gone, she can’t remember parts of her past, her relationship is over and her best friend is pulling away from her. Her life is rapidly spinning out of control and Ceci’s unsure of how to regain control. Ceci’s best friend Kyle is the only person she feels she can turn too, will Kyle and Ceci be able to gain control together?
Kyle is one of many in the Morgan family that has “adopted” Ceci into their fold. Kyle is a detective, who works hard to keep the streets clean, so what does he do when his best friend is dating a dirty guy? Childhood friends and neighbors, Kyle and Cecelia have developed a bond that’s built to withstand almost anything.
The tension between Kyle and Cecelia is felt within minutes of starting Risking It All. Not only is she showing up on his doorstep in the middle of the night but also tears his heart out with three little words. Relying on their deeply developed bond Kyle welcomes Cecelia into his home and heart without consequence. Kyle willing steps up to the plate and helps out his friend however, Ceci is reluctant can she risk their friendship by accepting his help? Can they take it to the next step and become lovers? As parts of her memory are returning will it affect their relationship? Kyle has knowledge on many things but past promises keep his lips sealed. Those promises drive a wedge between the friends and threaten to end it all. The couple takes a break to rethink and re-evaluate their lives. With a little push from the Morgan family they take the big risk and let fate take it from there.
This is the first JM Stewart novel that I have read; it was slightly different from my normal but still an enjoyable read. I did not relate to all of the characters but I did feel emotion/curiosity for many of them. While JM told the story between Kyle and Cecelia, she peaked my interest on book two, Whatever It Takes. If someone is looking for a quick afternoon read that includes a friend to lovers twist, Risking It All would be a go-to read.
