His Million Dollar Risk is quite an enjoyable read. It is book three in the Take a Risk Series but can be read as a standalone. In addition to the well-developed characters, I enjoyed the occupation of the hero, Connor, the dream job of the heroine, Charlie and the overall adventure you are part of. After finishing the book, I really want to travel Route 66 for a road trip!
Connor is not looking forward to taking a week-long trip with a reporter especially since the magazine in which the reporter is from posted a false article about his mother, so he starts out pretty angry and defensive. Charlie is filling in for her reporter-friend at the last minute and doesn’t really know what to expect. She just wants to prove to her father (head of the magazine) that she can do this job. Things don’t start out too well…
I thoroughly enjoyed Charlie’s character. You just like her from the very first scene. She isn’t perfect, but she makes you forget all the things that have to do in the future and reminds you to live in the moment. Connor is very regimented with his schedule and likes control. Charlie challenges that big time. Slowly but surely, Charlie got through that rough exterior of his and helped him to relax his schedule in a most entertaining way.
Robin does a fantastic job merging the overall story plot with the romance between Connor and Charlie and the relationship struggles that Charlie has with her father. Add in some very steamy intimate scenes (love the ones outside the bedroom), a road trip adventure and you have a wonderful short contemporary romance story! I have always enjoyed the smoothness of Robin’s writing and the engaging characters in her stories. His Million Dollar Risk is no different. If you have yet to read this author, pick up this book and give it a shot.
