Book Review: Risk of Falling

Risk of Falling by T. Taylor: Sloan Matthews has spent the last four years since she was forced to separate from her semblance of a family attempting to build a quiet life for herself. She hides her past and swears off love to protect her heart from the pain inflicted as a child. Trying to find her way, she moves to a tiny ski village called Mount Tremblant where she works and spends every day embracing her passion of snowboarding. Life is good and drama free with her best friends by her side. When she falls into Jake Brooks life, she finds herself fighting an undeniable attraction.

Jake Brooks is the sexy tattoo clad newest member of the Foley snowboarding team. He lives life fast and hard just like he snowboards. Jake has a reputation for bouncing from woman to woman and has no intentions of slowing down. He is a good person at heart, protective and honorable, but he won't let anyone know that. That is until Sloan literally trips into his life.

When a traumatic event nearly shatters Sloan to pieces, Jake is there to rescue her and pick up the pieces. Together they try to push out of their comfort zones and are forced to discover if the risks are worth falling in love.

TeriLyn's thoughts: **ARC generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review**

I read this in one sitting on a lazy Saturday morning and it was the perfect book for a laid back start the day. Risk of Falling is light, fun, and super sweet. The heroine, Sloan, is a relatable and interesting character. Jake, the hero, is fun loving, laid back, and cool. The two of them meet after Sloan has admired him from afar thanks to his snowboarding career. The form a fast friendship and bring out the best in each other. Sloan is afraid of getting too emotionally invested because of a painful past. Their story goes on from there. There's some great banter between the two of them. There are some really vulnerable moments between these two that leave rooting for them to make it. Their journey to each other is mostly easy and fun and seemed especially natural for the two of them and where they are in their lives. I liked the snowboarding aspect of this story. They bond firstly over their love for the sport. Sloan becomes really important to Jake because of this. The two of them share something very unique. Risk of Falling is well written and slows easily. It's not a cliffhanger but the ending left some unanswered questions that intriguingly set up book two. I'm excited to read about Sloan and Jake's story.
