New Release Review: Risk of a Lifetime by Claudia Shelton

I finally got a chance to finish this new release (yay, Easter break!)–and I’m so glad I did! If you haven’t already, make sure you check out my interview with Claudia Shelton here.


Risk of a Lifetime
by Claudia Shelton

A good all-around read. Marcy and JB are likable characters, and you’re rooting from the first few pages for them to get back together. (And cringing at what might happen when he finally finds out that his wife isn’t as “ex” as he thought she was!) Claudia Shelton does a nice job with the tension between the two; I just loved how JB kept calling her “sugar” without even thinking about it and kissing her on the top of her head. So sweet, especially since he’s actually such an alpha guy!

The suspense was nicely written; it’s not at all obvious who’s out to get Marcy–or is it JB?–until just about the same time that the characters figure it out. Shelton literally puts her characters in a lot of pain here, but the ending makes it all worth it. I’ll definitely be picking up future releases from this author.

Rating: 4 stars/ B

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review–and then went out and bought a copy! 🙂
