I feel as if I have read a lot of books lately featuring a dynamic group of friends, yet Risking It All still manages to stand out from the crowd. Bonded through a traumatic event in their teens the group of friends each have their own areas of speciality defined by their unique personality traits.
Risking It All starts with Griffin, the undisputed leader of the group, to say he has a hero complex would be putting it mildly. Willing to put himself at danger in the hope of saving others his chosen career reflects his innate heroism, unfortunately, he is also a little reckless only seeing the short-term impact of his decisions and not the bigger repercussions on others not in the immediate action. Working for the Coastguard, Griffin has the perfect job to feed both his need for the elusive adrenaline rush as well as his protector personality. Grounded following a dangerous rescue and his subtle insubordination, Griffin has to re-evaluate the way in which he views and handles situations. Forced into a role that while career progression is not where Griffin's heart lies, it does make him consider the larger implications of his actions and their effect on his co-workers.
There is so much more to Griffin than he gives himself credit for, from his romance addicted mother, his nonchalant approach to his wealth and his role within the Naked Men blog. Let me tell you I loved the idea of this group of friends creating a blog initially to stay in contact with each others lives but then morphing into a site for men to share their inner most thoughts on all aspects of their lives including romance and relationships. I would love a real life version of this, the glimpse into the workings of the male mind would be invaluable.Read more ›
I tried and tried with this book but I'm afraid I had to DNF at 43%. The blurb:
Who doesn’t love Naked Men? In Christi Barth’s irresistible series, a group of close-knit friends talk out their problems with naked honesty on a popular blog. Bonded by a high-school tragedy, they’re moving on from the past—and fighting for the future with strong and sassy women.
Griffin Montgomery helps people. As a teenager, he kept his best friends alive after their soccer team’s bus crashed in the Alps. Now, as a Coast Guard search and rescue pilot, he saves lives with reckless abandon—until he goes too far and earns a lengthy suspension. Working on the Naked Men projects keeps his mind busy, but Griff’s itching to get back in the action. That’s when he finds his latest rescue mission: a pretty wallflower who’s stuck in her comfort zone.
Chloe Widmore doesn’t take risks. As a professional letter writer, she gets enough excitement out of expressing other people’s emotions. So when the hottest man she’s ever seen invades her coffee shop, Chloe surprises herself with how much she wants to be with him. Routines make her feel safe. Griff makes her deliciously unsafe, in so many ways. But falling for him is one risk she might just have to take . . . whether she’s ready or not.
In the 113 pages that I read the Naked Men blog is really only mentioned in passing, so my selection of this book based on that first part of the blurb was frustrated.
I found Griff to be a totally self-centred, selfish douche (so kudos to Christi Barth for writing a character that evokes such a strong reaction).Read more ›
** ARC kindly provided by Random House Publishing Group ~ Loveswept in exchange for an honest review **
After kindly being invited to review this book by the publisher and reading the blurb which was right up our street, we were so excited to see the first book in the Naked Men series appear on our Kindles. The prologue is explicitly explained, henceforth, it is entirely comprehensible as to why the male protagonist’s strong character hadn’t changed at all over the years, but would also be the background for his relationship with four of his best friends. And as for the title… we found it totally fitting since this story is based on taking risks in more ways than one.
In spite of the fact that helicopter pilot extraordinaire and the man who puts the well-being of others before himself is absolutely drop-dead gorgeous, didn’t mean we’d fall straight into the arms of Griffin Montgomery. His stance regarding a proposition of sorts, frustrated the pants off us on many occasions. Yet fortunately, all his positive points outweighed his indecisiveness. A good part of this read is taken up by him pondering as to whether ‘the risk’ would be worthwhile taking, and it wasn’t until we were well into the book that our opinion of him changed. In the meantime, how he goes about trying to solve his dilemma was to our way of thinking, a tad juvenile.
"Why? You don't have to treat me like I'm some delicate oddity. I'm not a petrified teenager."
Never a truer quote said in jest. So should we say just …men? Perhaps not, but what we had no argument with was what he does best; saving lives.Read more ›
