After nearly a year, Bastian Grey is growing discontent with the lack of intimacy in his relationship with Rick Claremont. Can an adopted cat be the key to a real relationship?

Fire fighter Sebastian Grey has finally gotten what he’s wanted since he was sixteen: Rick Claremont in his bed. Only now he wants more. Convincing cautious Rick that loving him is a safe bet seems impossible.

Rick Claremont grew up in a hurry and experienced danger and loss early. He’s not sure risking himself on Sebastian is a viable option. The man is gorgeous and the sex is amazing, but Sebastian’s whole life is about taking chances. He throws himself off mountains for fun and runs into burning buildings for work. How can Rick trust this risk taker with his battered heart?

Will the advent of a cat and a corpse into their relationship give Bastian the entrée to Rick’s heart as well as his bed?

When two lovers are meant to be together, nothing can keep them apart, not even murder.

Rick Claremont is a troubled soul with a shady past that includes a childhood no child should ever have to endure – particularly in his teens. Sebastian Grey is an adrenaline junkie with a job and hobbies to cater for his love of risk and flying by the seat of his pants. But can someone like Rick who’s lost so much in the past, dare to love someone he could lose and end up having to go through that pain all over again?

Risking It All is a sexy m/m book with two really nice guys at the heart of it. I enjoyed seeing the story from both of their voices. There were a couple of times I had to back track to check on timescale or who’s head I was in – both guys seemed to have commitment issues at one point. The prologue was very well done and left me questions that I hunted out the answers to.

The death of one of Rick’s rather nasty family members (step-family) gave Sebastian and Rick a new outlook on each other and what they wanted not just from their relationship but also life. It seemed to draw them together at a time they really needed it to. I adored the addition of the cat and all the banter about cooking. This author presents dialogue very nicely.

If you enjoy M/M and fancy a story about realistic commitment issues then Risking It All is a book for you.
