Book Review: Worth The Risk by JB Heller

Worth the Risk
by J.B. Heller 

It was meant to be a one-time thing. One night they could let go of the restrictive chains their everyday lives bound them in.

When a new client file turns out to belong to the woman Abe slept with three months ago, he does something he has never done before. He goes against company policy, one he created, and places himself on the case as her full-time bodyguard.

It’s not bad enough her father’s political aspirations have landed Kalista in hot water, she’s about to have a twenty-four/seven shadow too. Far from happy about the added protection, she hates the idea of constantly being watched. But then she meets her new bodyguard.

Now that Abe has Kalista so close again he knows he wants to keep her in his life. When the threats against her escalate, he’s forced to act. But will his new-found attachment to Kalista make him a liability or their greatest asset?

Favorite Quotes:


I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t appreciate me doing the sprinkler in bed. You’d come out the other side with some serious injuries.

His words are lost on me as I contemplate murdering him with a pair of my Jimmy Choos displayed on the shelf behind him. But I decide against it. I don’t want to hurt my Jimmys.

I get it, but you have to stop looking at me the way you do. It’s distracting and frankly, I’ve already had to replace the batteries in my vibrator this week. At this rate, I’ll need to buy shares in Duracell.

‘So, how old are you exactly? Am I sleeping with an older man?’ She gasps theatrically. ‘Are you a cradle snatcher, Mr. Jamieson?’


My Review:

Oh these sexy, dirty talking, and bossy alpha men of JB Heller, they are such a kick to read.  I revel in her naughty irreverent humor and amusing observations.  The characters engage in amusing and creatively filthy banter and name calling that I’ve never heard before.  I had a harder time appreciating the character of Kalista as she was initially prickly, cold, snobbish, over-indulged, and had a hair-trigger temper with a tendency for over-reaction.  But my favorite of this story was the feisty pixie known as Ellie, she intrigued me and I’m hoping Ms. Heller will be indulging us with her story soon.
