She lost a part of her soul when he died.
He lost his right hand man, his ultimate partner in crime.
But it’s that tragedy that might just push them together.

If Kyle Daniels regrets anything, it’s not being home the night his best friend died or going home for his funeral. Leaving Berkeley and heading back to Verity Point, Oregon, for the summer feels like returning to a hol

Book 4. Kyle. At least an original friend from the earlier books. But, again, even though this book was good...I felt like I was missing something through the whole thing. This book was good for about 1/2 of it, then it became repetitive and I found myself getting bored. It did have its moments, given the subject matter, but Roxy was getting on my nerves, and I feel like the last part of the book was kind of over the top. I found myself wanting to skim to be done, sadly.

This just felt forced to me and the back and forth, will they, won't they, drove me insane. Also the h did something extreamly reckless and selfish and all was forgiven within 1-2 paragraphs with little to no contrition! I gave two stars for the author taking on grief, alcohol and drug abuse, although it was a bit too ambitious.

Reakce po dočtení:
Po trojce výrazné zlepšení, ale na jedničku zkrátka nic nemá...
Tak konec, no... Musím uznat, že se mi po čtení téhle série bude vážně stýskat.

Klady:
- Čtivý a citlivý příběh... a jeho konec :)
- Propracované postavy, jako obvykle.
- Autorka konečně vybrala jméno, co se mi nepletlo! (Braden bude pro mě vždycky Brandonem a Aston Ashtonem, ale Kyle je zkrátka Kyle :D)
- Vztah mezi Roxy a jejím bratrem byl vážně skvělý.
- ..........všechno, jako vždy. Miluju tuhle sérii!

Naozaj si tak veľa hviezdičiek zaslúži, pretože opäť išlo o dobre napísanú pohodovú knihu, ktorá ma veľmi bavila a vôbec nenudila :) Kyle bol skvelý hlavný hrdina, to však o Roxy povedať nemôžem. Všetko sa točilo o nej a o jej problémoch. Jej dôvody boli jasné a pochopiteľné, ale napriek tomu som mala chuť ju prefackať nech sa už konečne spamätá a neničí svoj život. Jediná vec, ktorá mi v knihe chýbala, boli postavy z prechádzajúcich kníh. Všetkých som si obľúbila a zatiaľ sa vždy objavili. (Aj ...more

Heroine pissed me off royally throughout the entire book. Selfish, bitchy, sarcastic brat.

Poor hero the guy couldn't get a break with her.

Only reason this is two stars and not 1 is because of Kyle.

This book sucked! First, I was disappointed that we didn't get to meet the gang of UC Berkely and then, the Female protagonist.

in the beginning, I got that she was greiving but I just couldn't take all the lying she did to herself. She told everyone that she had a handle on it but she didn't. She was just trying to forget, no matter what the way.

The fogetting thing was very selfish. I hate it when people do that. Ruin their lives, or try to at least, when a person leaves them. W

Worth The Risk has to be my favorite of The Game series! I couldn't put this book down! I didn't think anything could beat The Love Game, but Worth The Risk definitely takes over as my favorite in the series!

We finally get Kyle's story in Worth The Risk, and man is it a story! We meet Roxy, who is Kyle's childhood best friend's sister, who is grieving the loss of Cam (her brother) when Kyle comes home for the summer. Both of them are grieving for the loss of Cam, but handling their grief in tota

Toto je jeden z tých prípadov, kedy platí, že na záver to najlepšie. Tento diel je jednoznačne najlepší z celej série. A to som ho po tej príšernej trojke ani nechcela čítať. Chvalabohu, že som sa doň pustila, bolo to skvelé :3 A Kyle a Roxy boli obaja úžasní :3

Tak jo. Ty čtyři musím dát.
Roxy mě štvala celou knihu, ale Kyle to dost vynahrazoval. A Maddie s Megan tam mohla šoupnout klidně dřív.

Il confine dei libri
Salve lettrici,
Oggi vi parlo di "Il mio rischio più grande" di Emma Hart, edito da Fabbri Editori. Questo romanzo fa parte della serie The Game, insieme a "Scommettiamo che ti faccio innamorare?", "Una scommessa per sempre" e "A un passo da te". Il primo romanzo della serie è stato pubblicato quando la Hart aveva 19 anni e ora, a distanza di qualche anno, l'autrice continua a far parlare di sè con questo nuovo romanzo Young adult. Roxy ha perso suo fratello in un incidente e da quel giorno ha pe

Questo quarto e ultimo libro della serie la Hart lo gioca su Kyle e Roxy.
Avevamo già conosciuto Kyle in una parte cameo. Era un membro del gruppo di amici che avevamo incontrato all’università.
L’ambientazione questa volta è l’Oregon e i temi principali sono l’amore e la perdita.

Roxy e Kyle stanno entrambi soffrendo per la perdita della stessa persona, che per Roxy era il fratello maggiore e per Kyle il migliore amico, quasi un fratello. Hanno un legame unico che li lega, il loro amore per Cam

Quattro stelle e mezzo.
Beh, devo dire che la Hart mi ha nuovamente sorpreso con questo romanzo. Dopo i primi due libri della serie che non mi avevano colpito più di tanto, avevo letto il terzo, che ho nominato nell’introduzione, e che mi aveva emozionato tantissimo dopodiché pensavo che la Hart ritornasse sulla linea nel primi due… ma invece ecco un'altra storia che mi ha conquistata.
Roxy non è più la stessa da quando suo fratello, a cui era molto affezionata, muore in un incidente d’auto. Tra i

Sono piacevolmente sorpresa da Kyle. Non mi aspettavo che avesse questo carattere, ne che avesse delle persone così speciali alle spalle. Roxy e quella protagonista che tutti almeno una volta dovremmo incontrare. Umana, sbagliata, fragile, emotiva, distrutta, ma con un cuore immenso. Questo libro affronta un altro tema davvero difficile, la perdita, la reazione alla perdita, e l'amore. L'amore che aiuta Roxy a uscire dal tunnel del dolore. Davvero un libro meraviglioso

At least we are back to someone from the gang we originally met, even if we are no longer at UC-Berkeley. I did like this book, but I really feel like each book since the first two have kind of lost their way. This installment was good for about 1/2 of it, then it became repetitive and I found myself getting bored. It did have its sad moments, given the subject matter, but I felt Roxy starting to get on my nerves. The last bit of the book was kind of over the top drama, IMO. I found myself ...more

Worth the Risk is the fourth and final (so far) book in The Game Series, and is one I have had sitting on my iPad waiting to be read and sadly it took me a while to get around to reading this one.

Worth the Risk gives Roxi a chance to tell her story, and what an emotional story it is. Roxi is grieving the loss of her brother. She wishes she had made him get into another car, instead of the one he got into, the one that took his life. Every day since this tragic event, she blames herself, but inst

This is the fourth book in Emma’s The Game series and is all about Kyle and Roxy. Kyle has had a cameo role in the previous three books in the series but it’d been a while since I’d read the third book The Right Moves. The story is set in Oregon and is all about love and loss.

I’ve enjoyed the previous three books so I was looking forward to getting back into Emma’s writing with some new characters that I either couldn’t remember or hadn’t met yet. Roxy and Kyle have both suffered the loss of the

Another cute installment. It was nice to get back to Kyle, an original member of the gang, even though this was set in Oregon. Overall I didn't mind the repetition of Roxy's bad choices. I thought Kyle was wonderful as usual. He did a great job trying to help her. The last tantrum (Roxy's) at the end felt a little rushed and it bothered me that no one went looking for her when she was missing... I understand he needed to help with her parents, but why didn't he go look for her?

Na poslední díl série The Game jsem byla velmi, velmi zvědavá. Podle anotace to vypadalo na opravdu zajímavý čtenářský zážitek.Smutné příběhy, to je moje. Po třetím díle, který byl ještě lepší než první, a nasadil všem následujícím dílům obrovskou laťku, mne zajímalo, zda ji Kyleův příběh překoná. Prvním skvělým plusem této knihy je rozhodně obálka, jelikož je fialová. Fialová je moje barva a na moc obálkách ji nenaleznete. Další plusy si kniha rozhodně zaslouží za úžasně citlivý a čtivý příběh ...more

Emma Hart est une auteure de NA qui choisit délibérément d’écrire sur les plus jeunes des héros de ce genre. Ici, nos deux tourtereaux ont moins de vingt ans.et parfois cela se sent beaucoup. C’est fort dommage car le thème abordé était passionnant et souvent, l’auteure le traite de façon pertinente et intéressante.

Si ce roman fait partie d’une série de quatre, il se lit de façon relativement indépendante. Il commence six mois après la mort du frère de l’h
