Risky Business (Bomb Squad 1) by Melissa Cutler #Review #SportsRomance

Title: Risky Business
Author: Melissa Cutler
Series: Bomb Squad #1
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance, Sports Romance
Publication Date: August 19, 2014

Welcome to Destiny Falls, New York, home of the Bomb Squad—an ice hockey team full of rugged military heroes. But the season’s biggest match-up isn’t on the ice as one of their own prepares to go head to head with his new boss...

Allison Whitely’s ex left her with a mountain of debt and Cloud Nine, a struggling boat rental business. With zero job skills, her only hope of getting back in the black lies in a brooding ex-soldier who has her seeing red…

Theo Lacroix’s teammates are counting on their star player to help them win an upcoming high profile hockey game. But when a sexy tornado of a woman sweeps into town and expects him to help her with Cloud Nine, Theo is tempted to skate away from it all.

Theo vowed to never again be someone’s knight in shining armor, but his feelings—and desire—for Allison are becoming harder to ignore. He longs to save her, but to win Allison’s love, he’ll have to throw out his old playbook and take the ultimate risk…playing from the heart.

5 Stars

I loved so many things about Risky Business! The premise surrounding the Bomb Squad series is very intriguing. The Bomb Squad is an ice hockey team made up of wounded war veterans, and you know what that means…a team full of tortured ex-military heroes!

Risky Business tells the story of Canadian Theo Lacroix. From his injury to the way he deals with life, I found everything about Theo to be very interesting.  He’s definitely one fighting some huge internal demons! When his emotional backstory is finally revealed, you’ll understand why his defenses quickly kick up when Allison comes crashing into his life.

Allison Whitely comes to town ready and willing to change her life for the better. She’s determined to stand on her own after everything that happened with her ex-husband. Boy, do Theo and Allison butt heads all around, but I like her so much! She’s not perfect. She’s made mistakes, but she’s exactly the type of spark Theo needs in his life. Their romance is slowly built up, which I appreciated. Melissa Cutler made me root for both of them!

What a great start to a series! Ms. Cutler warmly welcomes the reader to the small town of Destiny Falls. I loved the sense of friendship and community where the people are so passionate in what they do. I loved the brotherhood within the hockey team both on and off the ice. Book 1 introduces many characters that I can’t wait to read more about in the next books! Liam’s book (Undefeated) is next, and he seems way more tortured than Theo. I’m so looking forward to learning more about him!
