This book is part of the Vault anthology. Owen & Charlize's story is panty melting hot. Their sexual chemistry and funny dialogue will leaving you wanting more. Who knew an accidental meeting in a bathroom (which had me laughing out loud) could lead to an office romance and so much more. Charlize is sassy, unconventional, speaks her mind and is smart as a whip. Owen is intrigued with her from the start. Having never met anyone like her. He's bossy, possessive and willing to play a game of ri ...more

Nina brought us a brand new story (The Risk) with new characters, Owen and Charlize. This was a steamy office romance that sucked me in to the story right from the start. Owen was your alpha bossman but he wasn't too much at all and Charlize was quirky and I loved that she was bright and intelligent. They had great chemistry and really steamed up the pages. This was witty, sexy and I know there's drama on the horizon. I'm really excited t

Well the first part of Risk which has been written for The Vault Anthology will literally rip the crotch out of a brides nightie.
Nina Levine has totally nailed it with the sexy, hot and alluring owner of North & Co. Owen North, and the quirkie, doesn’t hold back her opinion Charlize Cohen. Two complete opposites but together they will get your heart pumping and your pulse racing. Throw into the mix an overbearing ex-wife and business partner and you got yourself an interesting little cockta

Short, sweet and incredibly sexy

Everything Nina Levine writes is gold. Whether it is bikers, rockstars or financial analysts, she just has a way with her words that ensures her readers are frequently panting and constantly fanning themselves.

RISK has given her readers a taste of what is to come from her two newest characters, Charlize Cohen and Owen North. The minute these two meet, you just know that something special is in the makng. Bathrooms will now take on a whole new meaning. Charlize i

This book is part of the Vault anthology. Risk is a cute office romance novella. The continuance of this story will be published early next yr. I really don't consider the way it ended to be a cliffhanger for me but it may be for some people. This book is a bit different from the stories Nina normally writes about but it's still just as good as all her other books. This one was entertaining and you will find yourself laughing over certain parts. I recommend you grab the whole anthology when you ...more

Gosh this is just a teaser and what a teaser it is. Hot, steamy and sexy Owen is hard to resist in the office and out. Charlize is unique, feisty, independent and has a style that is just for herself. the sparks between these two are of the firework kind not the argumentative. I honestly cant wait for the full story, it might be a bit different from Nina's other books but it has all the elements I love about her books.

Oh my gosh, is part 2 out yet? I have a total girl crush on Charlize and holy hotness that Owen is also crush worthy.

This was a quick read that I just did not want to end. The characters were developed quickly. The plot flows perfectly and the pages just turned themselves because I wanted more!!!

I'll just be over here stalking Nina Levine's page waiting for Owen's perfect coffee secrets :)

SO HOT! Nina Levine is amazing, as always. We get a small taste of Owen and Charlize in The Vault Anthology with Risk. The chemistry between these two is off the charts hot! The storyline is incredible. It's as funny as it is sexy. I can't wait to read more.

Risk is part of the Vault collection of stories by various authors. It is also part one of the story so I can't wait for the rest of the story to see what happens between Charlize and Owen. This story got my attention from the very start because of the hilarious situation that Charlize Cohen was in at her cousin's wedding. Charlize met Owen North in the woman's bathroom since that's where Charlize was trying to fix her situation and Owen heard a scream so he came in to the bathroom to make sure ...more

The best thing about Nina Levine is that she can literally write anything and it is an amazing read. She is one of the very few authors that I will buy her book as soon as it releases, no matter what. This book was no exception! It's part of an anthology so it was a shorter read. (She notes that the entire book will be released next year.) This is an office romance but it is not your typical romance. The chemistry between Owen and Charlize is perfect from the beginning. I like that they meet bef ...more

A Seductive Fun to Read Novella
Risk grabs you right from the start. I was only in the first few pages and what poor Charlize was going through had me dying laughing. It was something I could see happening to me. Charlize is feisty and just so real. Owen is charming rich and "I'm never wearing clothes again" HOT. When Charlize and Owen meet they are so cute together but the sexual desire between these two is intense and passionate. They start off as strangers to some what friends then to Boss and

Charlize maybe a woman but she can put any man to shame when in it comes to the stock market. With an eye for Fantastic investments she not only catches the eye of Owen North with her knowledge she also catches his eye in being the woman he wants to spend all his time with.

I read Risk as part of The Vault anthology and it was fantastic!

A different kind of story for Nina Levine (who I adore btw), this is a fun and flirty story about Charlize and Owen. Meeting at the most inopportune time while Charlize's dress comes undone at her bestie's wedding, these two have a heat almost immediately. They are soon employer and employee with Charlize tempting the boss almost every minute of the day. They are fire and more fire when together and it's enough to make my ereader me

Charlize is at her cousins wedding. She's suffering with the dress she was forced to wear, and the bra that she wore. She's in the restroom trying to fix them and of course, nothing goes right and she screams out her frustration. As she screams, the door opens and in walks the most gorgeous man she's ever seen, asking if she's okay. I loved the way she described him!! It was also hilarious while she's having her meltdown, he's being a typical hot "very cool" male.

Nina's writing is amazing and I love how her characters come to life in her books. Although this was only a short portion of Charlize and Owens story I couldn't help falling in love with them. Charlize has absolutely no filter and I love that about her. She is strong and fierce and I can't wait to see what gets thrown at her next. She will overcome the worst odds and still be a bad ass. Owen is blown away by Charlize and he also seems like a strong character who isn't afraid to go after what he ...more

RISK is a story that's part of THE VAULT collection, it's an office romance and a rom-com but also be aware that it's only the first part, it ends on a cliffhanger and the rest won't be released until early next year. I've read a few books from Ms. Levine's MC series but who knew she had such a fantastic sense of humor?!?! Charlize and Owen's light hearted story caught my attention from page one. It read super fast and I'm pretty sure I laughed out loud through most of it! But of course, this is ...more

I laughed with this one. Charlize is like a breath of fresh air…smart, sassy, and definitely not one to underestimate. Owen meets her in the ladies room when he hears her screaming and comes to find her in a hilarious situation. That is what happens every time they see each other, she’s in the middle of some kind of incident and that made for quite the funny moments.

Their chemistry is strong, but when he offers her a job, things seem to be slated for trouble. Owen is hot, the story is fast-paced

I absolutely love Charlize. Her unconventional ways and her feistiness only make her a better character. Owen is enthralled by her when he first meets her and it does not change as he gets to know her better. I love that Charlize is so quirky. The heat between Owen and Charlize just keeps getting hotter as they get to know each other and work together.
I look forward to reading more of Owen and Charlize's story.
Great job, Nina. I love your stories and always look forward to reading your books.

Owen and Charlize

Well, probably the hottest sexiest short story I've read in a long time.
Charlize and Owen. The moment they meet the sexual attraction is off the charts. But boss and employee never works out, right? Well, these two could just prove you wrong.
This story will have you intrigued from the start. You wasn't be able to put it down.
Charlize is feisty as they come. Owen, well, two words.....sexy and hot. The two of them together....boom.

I was given an ARC of Risk by Nina Levine, a story in The Vault: A Sinfully Sexy Collection Volume 1 for my honest opinion.

This was a funny, sexy, brilliant story about Charlize and Owen. Charlie is a smart woman with stocks but can't save herself with her personal budget. Owen is a sexy dressed-for-success owner of a Stock Advising Company. I loved the witty banter among the characters. Nina writes the scenes with such sharpness, inventiveness and comedy I just bursted out laughing. Even the h

I'm so excited for you all to know why this is driving me crazy. Cole and Charlize are absolute perfection. I just adore them.
They are hot and sexy, Cole is alpha and Rich and Charlie isn't a push over, she is intelligent and Finally has a Knight to protect her from her Evil peeps.

I fell in love with Owen the man was persistent, “Charlize, your car is in the driveway, so I’m guessing you’re home,” Owen calls out. “I really want to speak with you.” Owen is just so possessive, “you couldn’t see the warning in my eyes as I watched you walk towards me?”His voice is so darn growly and sexy. “I’ve undressed you five times over. Just like every man here tonight has. When you’re mine, we’re going to have to negotiate the dresses you wear.” This was a little tease taste and I can' ...more
