*This book can be read as a standalone.

Risk is my first Kenzie Macallan book, so I was going in kind of blind. But, it sounded like it was right up my alley-romantic suspense, espionage, and special ops.

Quinn is a brilliant scientist who, with her brother, has been working on a super secret AI weapons project. The danger of someone finding out and attempting to steal it is legitimate and there are all kinds of protocols in place to prepare of this. The book opens with the need to employ them and jumps right in to the suspense. Cam works for a special group and has had a secret crush on Quinn since they were kids. Now, he is determined to help her!  So, the plot is pretty far fetched, so if you want a realistic suspense, this isn’t it. I enjoyed the story despite this. I was a bit lost at some reference to previous events, and apparently the bad guys are in each previous books (different actual bad guys but same bad guy group). Overall, Risk was a suspenseful escape read that was interesting and enjoyable.



authors like Cynthia Eden, JD Robb, or Sawyer Bennett’s Jameson Force Security series…then you will probably like Risk!
