Risking It All by Jennifer Schmidt

3. 5 stars

Kennedy Monroe barely got her foot in her college dorm her freshman year before she was being warned about a certain dark-haired, blue-eyed self-proclaimed Casanova. There were only so many tales of heartache – and incredibly steamy nights – she could listen to before she started to believe them. But after a run in with the most sought after college womanizer, her ill feelings toward him change and soon a friendship forms that surprises everyone.

Twelve years later Kennedy and Memphis Adams are closer than ever – and only friends despite what those around them think, including Kennedy’s boyfriend Ian Brooks. When Kennedy accepts an invitation to vacation in Alaska from Memphis, her relationship with Brooks is tested as is her restraint when it comes to the desire she has always had for her best friend.

I did like this book but there were some things missing that caused me to not love it.

I absolutely love a friends to lovers story and I especially love feeling involved in the friendship and see the characters move to the next level and herein lies my problem. I didn’t get that – I felt that I didn’t get to experience the friendship side of the Memphis and Kennedy’s relationship before it moved to the next level. I would have like a little more time and detail spent on this part of the story.

I liked the story being set in Alaska and I really loved Memphis – all that bad boy with yet so much more had me in his corner but Kennedy….she tested me.

He indecision frustrated me at times and though and I found it hard to understand how she couldn’t see that Memphis was the obvious choice. I didn’t really follow her relationship with Ian and she did frustrate me.

This book did keep my interest and I did enjoy it but it didn’t get to that next level with me as I felt it just fell a little short.
