From New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg comes a new, sexy standalone about taking chances and finding love when it’s least expected. Or wanted.

This whole contest was supposed to be easy. I know, I know. Famous last words.

It’s a long story, but I messed up at work. Big time. To earn back the trust of my boss, I promised to save one of our magazines. Yep. That Hot Dad contest you’ve seen advertised all over the place was my idea. And if I’m successful, if I’m able to increase our online readership, then I get a shot at my dream job.

But the one thing I never expected to happen, happened: Contestant number ten, Grayson Malone. Hello, Mr. Difficult. And did I mention sexy as hell?

Unfortunately he knows me. The old me, anyway. And while we might be older now, I remind him of before. Of the woman who broke his heart, who hardened him, and who left him alone to raise the cutest little boy I’ve ever seen.

But I don’t want a relationship. And I definitely don’t fall for single dads with baggage. Even ones with chiseled abs and killer smiles.

But he got to me. They got to me. Him and his son and their messy, crazy life. But I got to him too. I see the stolen glances. I feel the walls he built start to crumble. I recognize that there’s an unexpected beauty to the chaos in his life.

And now that the contest is about to end, we’re left to decide whether the last six months were just fun or if what we have is worth risking it all?

The three Malone brothers Grant, Grady and Grayson are the heroes of this new series by K. Bromberg.

The last one - Grayson - is a rescue helicopter pilot and a single dad of 8 year old Luke.
He's also just been demoted to desk duty, because he didn't listen to his boss while on a rescue mission.
And he's also just entered a Hot Dad contest in a local family magazine.
Only he didn't enter himself - his brothers signed him up for it. And now he's in the top 20 and they need more hot pictures of him. But he's SO not willing!
Enter Sidney.
She grew up in Sunnyville and she also kinda got demoted ... from her dad. She is to go back home to work at that family magazine for a while and if she survives that, she'll get her dream job at the glamour fashion magazine.
And now the only thing standing in her way is stubborn Grayson.
They knew each other in high school - she was the snobby rich girl and he used to work at the diner.
He was attracted to her, but she would've never started anything with a blue-collar boy.
Now she has to prove that she's changed.
Maybe now is finally the time for those two to find their happily ever after?

What will happen with Sidney & Grayson & Luke?
Will there be a happily ever after for the little family?



Grayson is such an amazing guy. Hot and sexy and a pilot with a sexy uniform!! And he's such a great dad to adorable Luke.
Poor Luke's only dream in life is get a new mommy!! Awww!
But Grayson doesn't date - he doesn't want to get the boy's hopes up, only to have it not work out with a woman.
But now here's Sidney. And she's not going away.
Luke is already mega excited about the whole contest and that they could win a trip to Disneyland!

Grayson and Sidney would be so perfect for each other. But she hates everything family! She can't imagine herself married with kids. And Grayson is still sour about her snotty behaviour as a kid. And he's still even more angry about Luke's rich girl mom leaving them when Luke was just a baby.

I really enjoyed reading it. Even though there were some long moments. Especially the beginning. The phone-call with Sidney's friend. That was way too long. It was a conversation to explain everything to us - but it should've been done a bit different. Maybe half phone call, half talking to us or herself. It was just too long with too much info. BUT I still really loved the story and the people in it! It was just not something mega exciting or new. I've read a million such single daddy stories. And I've loved them all. I just would've loved something a little bit  ... more. More exciting, more new, fresh, more whoa! There was no whoa at all. No surprises, no drama, no danger, no huge fight. It was all a bit tame. BUT I kinda love books with no unnecessary drama.
Another tiny little thing. The way Grayson and Sidney get together. When does it happen? I didn't really feel any sparks or anything much between them in the beginning. It was a bit weird. They didn't really fall for each other. They meet and he's mad at her and she thinks he's sexy and suddenly we kiss and ...what, when, how, huh ?? Felt weird to me.
BUT, I really adored those people and I enjoyed reading it - even though the last lines might've suggest something different!☺ I especially loved those Luke moments - I wanted more of that!!!

Great romance with lots of funny and adorable and sexy moments, but also some very moving & teary moments.

WORTH THE RISK was a really adorable & funny & sexy small-town single-dad falls for the rich city girl love story! Definitely WORTH spending some reading hours on while waiting for Passionflix to finish filming DRIVEN!
But just so you know ... Grayson is MINE - so go run to your nearest amazon to get your own!!!

ARC received for an honest review

I knew Grayson's story was going to be a good one. I mean really, who doesn't want to read about a sexy single dad? And one in a uniform of any kind - Hellooooo!!

I was completely hooked on Sidney and Grayson's story right from the get go. I adored her tenacity, I adored his gruffness.

I loved how their story played out - she doesn't do family, and he is still not over things from when they were at school together. I wanted to shake some sense into him at times, because that stuff was years ago, and who isn't a bit of a douche when they are a teenager?

Their story is beautiful, emotional, there was a connection between myself and these characters. I needed to hurriedly turn each page, I had to know what was going to happen between them 

And we can't have a single dad without a kid. And this kid, he stole my heart. He is just the most adorable kid and I want to steal him for my own.

I loved getting more of Grant and Grady and their lovely ladies. There is so much funny banter between the siblings, they made me laugh out loud a lot of times.

I love Ms Bromberg's writing. She always makes me feel involved in the lives of her characters, makes me want to be them. 

It is definitely worth taking the risk and reading Worth The Risk.

Stalk Kristy on:

New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.
She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California.
On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat, and Down Shift (Releasing 10/4/16)), and a short story titled UnRaveled. She is currently finishing up Sweet Cheeks a standalone novel out at the end of 2016.
Her plans for 2017 include a sports romance duet (The Player (#1) and The Catch (#2)) and the Everyday Heroes series (Cuffed (#1), Combust (#2), and Cockpit (#3). She’s also writing a novella for the 1,001 Dark Night series that will be out in February 2017.
She loves to hear from her readers so make sure you check her out on social media.
