I was already melting while camping in Georgia with weather conditions of 92 degrees Fahrenheit with a “Feels like” 117 degrees when I started reading this book, Unexpected Risk. This story was so hot that I’m pretty sure we set a temperature record at our camping site! I’m not sure if I was sweating from the outside heat or from the romance between the hero, J.T and the heroine, Janet. The pop up camper A/C gave me little relief. I’m not complaining though, mind you, for nothing was going to get me to stop turning the pages.

This wasn’t my first Desiree Holt read, however, it is my first book in The Phoenix Agency series. Unexpected Risk is actually book seven. It’s my opinion that it can be read as a standalone but I want to go back and read the previous books in the series because I fell in love with the men who work at the Phoenix Agency. I also enjoyed how the heroines have a touch of psi. I’m not a huge fan of the psychic phenomenon element in romance stories but when I read the synopsis I felt confident that I’d love it. I wasn’t disappointed at all.

This is definitely a suspense/mystery/thriller romance. I can’t resist a man in uniform protecting the woman he as fallen in love with from suspenseful danger. The mystery plot around the Darkman was shocking, riveting and unpredictable. The story ends with a cliffhanger that left me wanting more.

The love story between J.T. and Janet was breathtaking and the hot weather outside had nothing to do with me losing my breath. J.T. makes my list of book boyfriends I’d like to meet. I’m fairly certain all the men in this series would make my list. While I wait for book eight I’ll go back and read the previous six.

Regardless, I recommend reading this book by a pool where one can jump in to cool off.
