Fun, sexy and enjoyable, His Million Dollar Risk is a great addition to Robin Bielman’s Take a Risk series. And when Connor Gibson and Charlize Beckett take a business trip along Route 66, that business soon risks becoming pleasure…

Robin has a gift of creating a couple with a natural chemistry bringing everything from humour to the heartfelt. Charlie is spontaneous, flighty and sweet and the way she knocks Connor off his stride is fabulous. She unleashes his less serious, fun side and, add to

His Million Dollar Risk by Robin Bielman is a 2015 Entangled: Indulgence Publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

When Charlie's friend Ashley requires emergency surgery, she asked Charlie to take over her latest assignment as a reporter. This is the chance Charlie has been waiting for, an opportunity to impress her father, the owner of the publication she is reporting for. Although, Charlie isn't really all that into reporting, she wants to please her

Guys, GUYS! This novella is a serious amount of fun. Somehow in only 152 pages, Robin Bielman manages to pack in more background information, depth and fireworks than some authors of full length novels. WELL DONE THERE MS. BIELMAN.

Charlie is a journalist for a magazine owned by her father; however, she has really only produced…well…fluff. She’s dying to gain her father’s approval and respect, but doesn’t quite know how to go about it. And then an opportunity presents itself: her best friend, and

Just finished it and loved it!This is the third book in the series,it can be read as a standalone but though Robin keeps her unique writing, the story is so different than the previous two books.

Connor hates reporters but he has to spend his week with one so he can make his latest project on preserving route 66 a success.Charlie on the other hand wants to prove her worth and she will do anything for that, even if it means that she has to lie.

Connor doesn't expect to fall

In this fun and sexy story we meet Connor and Charlize. Connor runs a heritage preservation society and Route 66 is his latest project. When he is reluctantly forced into having a reporter tag along for a week's drive on the route to aid in the publicity for its preservation, Charlize turns out to be nothing like what he expected - a newbie (though she tries to hide it), but not just that, she's fresh and charming and knocks his socks off. But Charlize is keeping a secret - when it comes out (as ...more

Really enjoyable read that I found filled with humor, sexy, and completely entertaining. This couple has a great way of balancing and bringing out the best in each other. Connor is all business and very serious about his current preservation project and wants as much good press as he can get. Charlie is fun and carefree but desperately wants her fathers approval. So when the reporter who was to cover the story becomes ill, Charlie steps in to spend the week with Connor and write the story. Their ...more

His Million Dollar Risk was such a fun romantic story with elements of road trip adventure that had me hooked from the start.

Not having read anything by Robin Bielman before, I was immediately attracted to the gorgeous cover of the book, and the synopsis. I've always wanted to go on a trip through Route 66, and reading about the places that the characters go to throughout their little adventure I was intrigued.

Hooray for another Take a Risk book. I love these and was so excited to see another one I may have squealed a bit. You see this is the series that has given me one of my favourite book boyfriends (who makes an appearance, thank you Robin!) in McCall and has now delivered someone who runs a close second.

I loved this book and this couple. It was a fun, flirty, sexy read that had me laughing and loving every minute of it.

This novella is literally packed full of humor, depth, romance and fun. I enjoyed it literally from Page 1 and the first scene at the pool had me chuckling away. Connor did not trust reporters especially after an article that was reported wrongly was on his mum.

Charlize spent her life trying to fit into her 'given' role as a reporter even though she hasn't been able to prove herself much since she was only given small assignments. A turn of events resulted in Charlize going in for the gig which

If you are looking for a book with lots of laughs, smokin' hot chemistry, and an ending that will leave you giddily happy, get this book!

Oh, crap.
The last person she wanted to run into this morning when she had to be super-professional was Hot Pool Guy. Before she had a chance to hide behind a plant or something, his gaze connected with hers and held her hostage.
He flashed a smile and headed her way. Shit. She got to her feet thinking she'd say a quick hello before telling him she was meeting

So this little story was all kinds of SERIOUSLY fun and sexy all at the same time! This is actually just my second read by Robin Bielman and she is on the fast track to a must read author for me! Her characters are just so natural and easy to relate to! In His Million Dollar Risk, we have the story of Charlie and Connor.

Loved this book by Robin Bielman, the third in the series but can be read as a complete stand alone. I could not put this book down, I was laughing out loud at times at some of Charlie's antics.

You first meet Charlie and Connor at the hotel with a pool mishap. Then the next morning Charlie has to stand in for her friend as a reporter for the next week on a week long job with interviewing Connor. The interview takes you along on a wild, epic journey down Route 66. The only problem is that

My Thoughts:

Another winner from the Entangled Indulgence line! This is my second book by Robin Bielman, and I loved this one more than the first. It's engrossing from the start and it keeps you hanging on right until the end.

Charlize, otherwise known as Charlie, is taking over for her friend Ashley on this job. It's a sticky situation for her since Connor isn't a fan of her father, but she's willing to risk it. Unfortunately (or

This was a quick and easy read and I felt like I finished it to quickly because I didn't really want it to end.
It starts off with a familiar story line, right down to the vehicle the hero drives and I caught myself rolling my eyes and wondering if the book was just going to be a redo of another very popular book. If you read it and feel the same way, don't let it stop you from continuing on, it's not anything like the other book. Connor was super swoonworthy and sweet but it was Charlie's

Fasten your seatbelts, pack some snacks, and get ready for the funniest, sexiest road trip you've ever taken.

Why? Because you're traveling Route 66 with billionaire conservationist Connor Gibson and media heiress undercover, Charlize Beckett. Attraction, chemistry, secrets and more fuel every stop on this journey.

As a reader, I got to enjoy the road trip without packing a bag, snoozing in the car, or pumping gas. But I got great destinations that meant something to the characters, great

This newest book by Ms. Bielman has indeed followed the precedent set by other stories I've read by her. The story started out with well-written characters that you immediately connected with. Throughout the story, Ms. Bielman added layers and depth to Connor and Charli's personalities that guaranteed you would become emotionally invested. Nothing would do but that they both get the happy ending you know they both deserved and that Robin Bielman delivered. Wonderful story that left me smiling.

This was a very enjoyable book.
The author has delivered a sweet romance accompanied by enough heat to sizzle the pages.
Charlie's character was passionate, sweet and a breath of fresh air. The chemistry that ignited between her and Connor was fantastic.
We all dream of a romance such as this and the author has more than delivered.
Yes....I recommend this to all readers. You just won't be able to put this book down.

His Million Dollar Risk is quite an enjoyable read. It is book three in the Take a Risk Series but can be read as a standalone. In addition to the well-developed characters, I enjoyed the occupation of the hero, Connor, the dream job of the heroine, Charlie and the overall adventure you are part of. After finishing the book, I really want to travel Route 66 for a road trip!

This was a really sweet story. Yes, we knew the lie would come back to bite her, but it all worked out in the end. One thing I enjoyed about the story were the stops on Route 66. It really makes me want to plan a driving trip out west. I also really enjoyed that Charlie knocked Connor so far off his game. He had a schedule. He didn't like traveling with a reporter. But Charlie kept sort of forcing him off course, and he ended up truly

Charlize Beckett works as a reporter on her father’s publication and she’s really fed up of him not taking her seriously, only giving her the fluffy stories to do and not trusting her to do anything more in depth. When her best friend, Ashley, the journalist who was supposed to be spending a week shadowing Connor Gibson to find out about his latest preservation project on Route 66, has appendicitis and can’t do the job, Charlie decides to take over! This is her chance to show her Dad!

Connor Gibson was giving a week long interview with a reporter from a magazine he didn't like. The only reason he was doing it was that it would be good for his company's restoration project. The owner of said magazine allowed one of his reporters to slander Connor's mother, without apology. Ashley was supposed to do the interview but she got sick, so Charlie agreed to do the interview instead. Charlie never imagined Connor Gibson would be the guy she met by the pool the day before and that he ...more

Because he needs to promote his Route 66 preservation project. What's going to happen when he and Charlie spend time alone? This is a fast paced, romp across the countryside. Attraction and desire blossom between Connor and Charlie. He doesn't know that she's really Charlize Beckett. Her father is the owner of Natural World, the magazine that had libeled his ...more

“Charlie brought her dandelion to her mouth. "I've heard that, too. But this happens to be something I've done a lot and it's easy. Just take a deep breath, put your lips together, and blow." She closed her eyes and blew. When she lifted her lids, she found him watching her.
Or rather, watching her mouth. She let go of the flower stem and swallowed. "I'm thinking those lips of yours could make any man's wish come true.”
