From the back cover:
Bank employee Lissa Morgan likes all the columns of her life to add up. From her job to romance, every major decision is planned out. But before she can go out on a date with Mr. Perfect, she attends a charity auction with her meddling mom who wins Lissa a date with thrill-seeker Caleb Johnson.
Caleb lived for adventure until heart disease stole his wife’s life. Then debt closed his business and now threatens to take his home. With a toddler to raise, he vows that his risk-taking days are over. But then he meets the cautious yet curious Lissa Morgan and decides it’s time to take one more risk—this time on love.
When Lissa learns the extent of Caleb’s debt, she wonders if she can collect on his heart if she forecloses on his home. And why is she falling for the wrong man—one who challenges her to leap from her orderly life and into his waiting arms?

Have you ever had a certain image of someone and then been shocked when you discovered that image wasn’t truly accurate? Whether you put them on a pedestal or assumed certain things about them based on what you knew, we’ve probably all been guilty of pre-judging people.
In true Brenda Anderson form, Risking Love delves into some realistic heart-issues, exposing those inner struggles we try so hard to keep hidden. But also true-to-form, she leaves us with hope despite our struggles.
While the characters are certainly ones we’ll relate with, there were times I wanted to bonk somebody on the head! They didn’t seem to be able to see very clearly… and yet if I look back on my own situations, haven’t I honestly been there, too?
Risking Love may leave you rethinking your expectations… I look forward to reading the next in this series!
