Book Review

A Risk Worth Taking
The Legionnaires #3
4.5 out of 5 stars

Right from the start, A Risk Worth Taking stands out as an action-packed thrill ride with complex characterization and many exciting twists and turns. Readers are immediately drawn into skilled computer security expert Samira Desta’s dangerous and desperate plight to bring down a corrupt politician with eyes on a bid for the American presidency. A Senator with far-reaching ties and a man who will stop at nothing to protect his secrets and put an end to his detractors.

After the death—and suspected murder—of her fiancé, Samira has spent the past year in hiding, moving from place to place as she works to find more information about the man behind the threat to her life and the life of her family and friends. Now that her latest cover’s been blown, things have changed. She’s on a mission to put an end to the corruption and threats once and for all, but it will require help from past one night stand, Jamie Armstrong, and his Legionnaires team.

With vivid detail, a fast-paced plot, a strong hero and heroine, and excellent emotional and physical stakes, A Risk Worth Taking is a fantastic and expertly-written romantic suspense story that takes its readers on a memorable and gripping action-adventure. The chemistry between Samira and Jamie is electric and the danger surrounding them is high enough to keep readers on edge until the very end.

A Risk Worth Taking is the third book in author Brynn Kelly’s The Legionnaires series from HQN Books. It’s part of an ongoing series, but it can be read—and highly enjoyed—as a standalone book.

He can’t outrun himself…

Legionnaire Jamie Armstrong lives in the shadows. A medic haunted by his mistakes, he knows better than to hope for redemption. But his latest mission brings a threat he doesn’t see coming—an attraction as irresistible as it is dangerous. Hacker Samira Desta is a woman he swore to forget, but as a key witness to a deadly conspiracy, Samira is his to protect.

But the woman he rescues might be the one who saves him

After a year in hiding, Samira’s worst fears come true when her cover is blown and the unlikeliest of allies comes to her aid—the secretive Scot with whom she shared one unforgettable night. Hunted by lethal forces and losing the battle against their desire, Jamie and Samira make a desperate play to take the fight to their enemy—but those at greatest risk of ruin may be themselves…
