book blurb

From New York Times bestselling author Skye Jordan, Xtreme Heroes is a brand new series starring super-hot extreme athletes and their adventures.

Former Olympian turned physical therapist to the elite Julia Bailey knows all about pushing the limits. But when a sexual harassment suit costs her a dream job—not to mention her reputation—she takes on the biggest risk of her life. Rehabilitating the X Games’ most notorious bad boy might be just what she needs to secure the funds for her own treatment center. Problem is, the only kind of recovery her new client is interested in is under-the-covers freestyle—gear optional.

Daredevil snowboarder Noah Hunt is a rock star—on and off the slopes. A recent accident might have him down, but he’s far from out. He doesn’t care what the sexy therapist with the sweet curves says. He’s got sponsors to impress and trophies to collect, and taking things slow and steady just ain’t his style. A little dirty talk and a sizzling night later, Julia learns just how fast and hard he likes to play. Too bad for him, his heart goes all in, and one wrong move could cost him more than just his career.

about the author

Skye Jordan

Joan Author PhotoSkye Jordan is a pseudonym for New York Times bestselling romantic suspense author Joan Swan. Skye’s novels are about enjoying that little wild streak we don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we rarely get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, and maybe even acting a little naughty. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance.

And, yes, even love, because while wicked-great sex is good, happily ever after with wicked-great sex is even better.
Skye (aka Joan) lives on the central coast of California in the heart of wine country with her husband and two daughters. As often as possible, she retreats to a hotel with critique partners for a power-writing week where much drinking, laughing, and yes, even working, ensues. When she’s not writing, Skye goes to breakfast with her hubby, attends her daughters’ barrel races, and spends a lot of time with her own horse, Riddle…while her two dogs, Paxton and Indie, tag along. She also loves to read, knit, craft, row, ride, and dabble in photography.

my review

5 Stars

It’s almost impossible to pin down what makes a book beyond awesome versus it just being an okay read.  Just like people, some books the have ‘it’.  I love it when an author gets the right combination of charismatic characters, a fun storyline filled with witty dialogue and the hot sexual chemistry – it becomes book magic. All of Skye Jordan’s books have it – she is one of the masters of romance and her latest release, The Risk is incredible.

The Risk is about Noah and Julia finding second chances – both with their careers and with finding love.

I loved Noah. There is something about a professional athlete slash man-child that I find enticing. Yum!! You know they’re driven and competitive but they’re also always searching for fun and adventure. They make you laugh. Swoon. Noah fulfilled every single one of my desires and I might make him my next book boyfriend.

Julia is possesses almost all the same characteristic as Noah. Driven.  Competitive. But she was also dedicated, kind, and loyal.  She was a very fun person to read about and I truly enjoyed her struggle to remain professional when all she wanted to do was be bad with Noah.

Their interactions together are what make this book so fantastic.  Their scenes are flirty and fun – tantalizing.  You can feel their desire to take everything a step further and you cannot help be anticipate the moment they surrender to their lust and their feelings.  It’s a great ride.

I loved this book and I am addicted to the Xtreme characters already. The Risk was a amazing start to this new series and I am looking forward to the future books.
