A woman unable to connect, struggling to hide another part of her. A man burning to learn her truth, and make her whole. Through explosive passion and deep exploration, they are about to take the greatest risk of all. But will they be able to take that leap, and come out on the other side together?
In this next passionate novel in the Honey series, New York Times bestselling author Kristen Ashley delivers a stunningly romantic and intensely sexy novel that will stay with you long after you turn the final page.
WELL. This was one hot-as-hell, erotic, steamy and down-and-dirty story. If you are into BDSM books, then you will find yourself very surprised at the places that Kristen Ashley takes you in Stellan and Sixx’s story.
This is one hefty book and is a thoroughly enjoyable ride into the world of BDSM clubs where there are no judgments and everything is kept safe and sane. This book can be read as a standalone – I did not read the second book in this series and yet I never felt lost reading this story. Sixx is a Domme at The Honey and has long been attracted to the very aloof and very handsome Stellan, another Dom at the club. He has never made a move on Sixx nor has he ever shown any interest in her. It turns out that he was actually biding his time and planning to make his move, in a very big way.
Sixx had a hard life and has always felt like she didn’t really fit in with the others at the club. But she doesn’t see how beautiful and sexy she really is. And Stellan has his own defenses up.
“You haven’t cornered the market on demons, Sixx. Stellan’s got his own, just like you. And he might also want someone in his life to help him beat them back.”
Sixx is convinced to give Stellan a chance. But this is not a conventional romance. After all, we are talking heavy-duty BDSM here. Stella goes all out to win over Sixx (Simone) and their “first date” is one of THE hottest scenes I’ve ever read.
“So this is just an infatuation?”
“We’ve known each other for years, but Tuesday evening was our first date.”
Both her brows stretched high. “And you gave her a person . . . on your first date?”
“I like to make an impression.”
There’s nothing quite like a Kristen Ashley Alpha and Stellan is unforgettable. From his devotion to Simone, to his dominant ways and his gorgeous Phoenix mansion, he’s got it all. But will it be enough to convince Simone to let him love her?
“He’ll go all in for you.” Aryas throwing that out there got her attention again, and she twisted toward him. He kept at her. “Stellan finds the one that’s worth it, he’ll break his back, sell his soul, work his fingers to the bone to win her and keep her.”
There is a nice dose of suspense thrown in here due to Simone’s line of work. And there are appearances by some old favorites from past KA books. But what I loved most about this book were the absolutely explosive BDSM scenes. This story is very provocative and won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. But if you are in the mood for a very adult and very sexy story, then you will LOVE ‘The Greatest Risk’.
“Just trust me, Simone,” he urged gently. “And if you do, I swear to fuck I’ll make you happy that you did.”
