The three Malone brothers Grant, Grady and Grayson are the heroes of this new series by K. Bromberg.

The last one - Grayson - is a rescue helicopter pilot and a single dad of 8 year old Luke.
He's also just been demoted to desk duty, because he didn't listen to his boss while on a rescue mission.

And he's also just entered a Hot Dad contest in a local family magazine.
Only he didn't enter himself - his brothers signed him up for it. And now he's in the top 20 and they need more hot pictures of him.

➦K. Bromberg has definitely brought the angst with this one. I think I write in every review how all of her books make me cry. But this book... Ok, I didn't really expect it. I didn't expect to sob through the last 30%.

➦I certainly didn't expect to care this much about what happens to fictional characters. Because come on, fictional characters! I might have even gotten a little bit angry (at myself? at the author? at the world?) because my heart was hurting. I don't know what kind of witchcraft

You take risks every damn day in your job—you’ve made a name for yourself doing it—and yet, you won’t take a goddamn risk on me, will you?”

They say you save the best for last, and that's precisely what K. Bromberg has done with the third Malone brother. Ever since I read Cuffed I've been itching to get my hands on his story. The broken hearted, closed off single father that's there for everyone but has ultimately given up on love hit all of my check boxes. I knew his book wo

I have been waiting for Grayson's book, ever since I've read "Cuffed". I was so curious to get to know more about this "medevac" single dad !! I'm glad to say that he didn't disappoint ;) He is definitely a combination of sexy and sweet ! A real Hero.. I especially loved the relationship he had with his 8 year old son Luke.

Sidney however, is a different story. I didn't like her all that much in the beginning. She really seemed to be the selfish person Grayson thought she was. Thankfully she is a

”Life is putting yourself on the line and taking your chances.”

Oh. My. WOW! Worth the Risk WHOLEHEARTEDLY WOWED me in the best way! The INTENSITY—a mix of vulnerability and strength—of this romance was my HIGH. What a HEART-POUNDING RIDE! Worth the Risk is passion peppered with angst—a fight or flight war for love against the odds—that leaves an indelible mark on the heart ... my heart. My heart was and is so marked ... so moved ... so owned. I. Could. Not. Put. This. Book. Down.

“You should have let me have a choice in the matter whether or not I fell in love with you. But you didn’t. And now it’s for nothing.”

This was one of the most beautiful, most emotional single dad romances I’ve read this year! K. Bromberg is ONE OF A KIND when it comes to this genre! I would follow her anywhere! I knew Grayson Malone’s story was going to break my heart, but I had no idea that the connection between myself and the characters would be so fierce. They frustrated me. They made me

Cute kid alert!!! This was the absolute cutest read. I'm a sucker for a single dad romance and this one delivered in a major way!!

I absolutely loved the previous books in this serious and was over the moon excited for this release. K. Bromberg is an automatic one-click author and never disappoint. That holds true with those read as well. It's well written, emotional, and features fantastic characters.

I adored Grayson and Sydney, but Luke stole the show. He's such a cutie!! I

Really liked it!

Grayson and Sidney are so amazing together. Their relationship starts as more of an enemies to lovers, which is one of my favorite themes. I really enjoyed their banter and chemistry.

Grayson has some trauma from a past relationship that he has overcome in order to be with Sidney. That added some angst and depth to the story, which I appreciated.

Luke, Grayson’s son was so great! What a sweet, smart and sensitive kid. I truly loved him!

Overall this was a great contemporary roman

God, these Malone boys have literally stolen my heart!!!! I love them all so much and I'm sad that their stories are coming to an end!!!
In a way or another, those boys were heroes who didn't think that they were doing anything heroic and of course, they found the perfect women for them, even with many imperfections!!!
I love this family, all of them, and i will carry them with me for a long time!!!

4.5 'Worth ALL the Risk' Stars

Oh my... These Malone men really are unforgettable! True Malone TRIFECTA!!! The emotion, the steam and the sweetness of Worth The Risk are sure to touch your heart in every way!

I can't believe that the story of the last Malone brother is finally here. Since Cuffed, where we met this handsome, quiet single dad, I've been so curious about Grayson and all he was hiding with that teasing and easy going personality. Well, I can see he met his match, I couldn't have chos

Kristy ALWAYS writes books with heart, depth and passion that are highly addictive.... but this one was especially fantastic. It made my heart race and my emotions fly from beginning to end. A book full of feels, with characters you really do care about and can relate to, it's definitely one of my all-time favourites of Kristy's stories. For all lovers for this genre YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT, I CAN'T RECOMMEND IT ENOUGH. It's SENSATIONAL!!

K. Bromberg just delivers success after success! I fell in love with the Malone brothers in Cuffed and since I adore single parent themed romances, I was eagerly awaiting to read Grayson's story. Of course, you can imagine that Kristy did not disappoint her readers (since she never does!). The woman is one of my favorite authors and she one of the best when it comes to a emotional slow

POV/PACE: Written in dual POV, 1st person and slow-paced with a repetitive story buildup with which I struggled at times to stay interested and not skim pages.
STORY/PLOT: The writing was good, but it lacked details to Grayson and Claire’s backstory to believe his trepidation in romantically involving himself with Sidney. It also lacked credibility that in 10 years, there was no communication or “accidental bump-ins” with Claire, her friends or her family considering they’re in a small town. I ca

Another emotional, heartwarming and absolutely beautiful story. This single dad, enemies to lovers romance will give you all the feels you are looking for in a book and will leave you with a huge grin on your face.

I was waiting for this book since Cuffed and I was so impatient to get to know Grayson and his cute little boy. And man, did they steal my heart? I absolutely fell in love with these Malone men and their story captivated me from the very beginning. And the titl

This is the Malone brother whose back story I have been anticipating the most. We got little glimpses of Grayson in the previous two books and all I knew about him was that he was a single dad – okay a hot single dad. A hot single dad who can fly helicopters and rescue people. He’s basically a hot single dad super hero.

However, Grayson is currently ‘grounded’ pending an investigation at work so he is pushing paperwork which is making him a bit antsy and impatient. When Sidney Thorton comes knock

I have been a fan of K. Bromberg since forever.

Worth the Risk is just another jewel in the crown of her successes! 

This story of Sidney and Grayson is spectacular.  A shared history of growing up in the same town but as time goes on, they change is such different ways.

Sidney grew up with great privilege and wealth and as a child she was a product of that. But K. elegantly shows how much Sidney has c

I absolutely loved Worth The Risk! What’s not to love? Hot, single Dad... Check. Cute kid...Check. Emotions going haywire... Check. Great characters ...Check and very hot scenes! It has everything that you could possibly want.

When Grayson’s ex left him and their son, he wrote women off. Determined not to get hurt again and protecting his son is his main purpose. Then she comes knocking and his whole world is turned upside down.

Doormat heroine, grudge holding, hot headed hero. I didn't like either of them.
Sidney, where was her pride? Her self esteem? She let Grayson repeatedly verbally abuse her, and instead of sticking up for herself, she crawled back saying more please. She even blames herself for his hang ups!!!
Grayson, it's been eight years dude! Past time to let that crap go! He was an insufferable jerk to Sidney, and still so very hung up on Claire. That's not love, what they had was lus

Single hot dad, burned before, chip on his shoulder, smoldering hot...last name Malone. CHECK please. This installment had me swooning, sweltering, cheering, tossing my kindle, and possibly yelling at the characters to just SPEAK up and let each other know what is REAL and RIGHT in front of them.

Grayson Malone is the last of the Malone brothers we get up close and personal with and I have to say although I fell for Grant and Grady Malone hard, K.

A little disappointed in this installment from Bromberg. Not up-to-par for what she usually delivers. It's an okay read -- nothing new that you won't find around every corner. Luke played to my heart -- and he's the kiddo! He had the best lines and the biggest heart. Without him, I might have entitled this one "unworthy of the risk."

I just hate when you get a hot hero who just fizzles. My gosh -- Grayson supposed to be a super heroic saver of lives and the object of every woman in town's desires

“Regardless of my flaws in knowing how to relate to him, there is something about this little boy that captivates me. Maybe it’s his willingness to listen or his eagerness to share. Maybe it’s the subtle way he asks every so often if I’m sure I’m not here for his dad. Maybe it’s that shy little smile he gives me as he bumps his shoulder against mine when he shows me a character he deems as “really cool” that has me actually enjoying my time with him.” 2 likes
“When I brush my lips against hers, it’s so different from the kisses we shared the other day. There’s no anger. There’s no retribution. There’s just my need to connect with someone—with her. There’s my need to feel like a man she wants rather than a man to fix her problems.” 2 likes
