Trapper. Risque.
Two names is all that sex therapist Doctor Lyssa Cutler has, but it’s all she needs. Those two words reveal the name of a man and the name of the strip club that she’ll find him in. She might not have expected to find the solution to her stalker problem in such a place, but she does. In fact, Trapper turns out to be far more than just the man capable of tracking down her pursuer.
Colt Warner’s better judgement tells him that he should reject the job offered to him by the inquisitive doctor because he can tell that this sassy sexpot is going to be trouble. Being attracted to a client goes against his usual ethics, but playing by the rules has never been his strong suit.
Giving in to their sparking attraction lures reality into harsh focus. The stalker that brought them together doesn’t like the picture that the new couple presents and seems prepared to do anything to tear them apart.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.


This review has a wee bit of spoilerage, so proceed with caution.

I really enjoyed Take A Risk which introduced us to the Sex Therapist, Lyssa who is being stalked, and the man who signs up to protect her, Colt. Lyssa has had someone leaving her messages and flowers. When she reports them to the police, they don’t take it too seriously. Things escalate, but the police can’t and won’t help her. After one of her trips to the police station, an officer comes out and gives her Colt’s details and informs her he can help.

Colt has people who need his service meet him at his twin’s place of business, a strip joint that he is a financial backer. Once contracts are signed and negotiations finalised Colt and Lyssa attempt to find the stalker.

The connection between the main character’s is pretty strong from the beginning. Lyssa’s job as a sex therapist gives her a lot of confidence in her sexuality which made for interesting intimate scenes. Luckily Colt finds her amusing and doesn’t mind that she talks about her satisfaction and what she finds pleasurable the whole time they are having sex. He also learns to accept that she assesses those she meets and whether their problems in life are a result of sexual dissatisfaction or inadequacies.

This was a fast paced book that kept my attention from start to finish. I enjoyed trying to solve the mystery of who was stalking Lyssa and why. Colt’s brothers were lovable and I’m hoping Ms. Finn has plans to share their stories.

Plenty of really steamy scenes that showed a great connection between Colt and Lyssa and they only had eyes for each other from the time they met.

I took away half a star for two reasons. First Suzette, Lyssa’s best friend, drove me bat spit crazy with her demands for attention. Second, Colt should have told Lyssa who her stalker was as soon as he knew.

Overall I loved this story and will definitely be reading more from this author.
