Worth the Risk by Zara Cox


“I like to win at all costs…”

But wanting her could cost him everything.

With a multibillion-dollar deal on the line, billionaire playboy Gideon Mortimer can’t afford another tabloid scandal. He’s committed to a chastity contract, but being on the same yacht as Leonie Branson—temptation personified—is pure, unadulterated torture. Relinquishing control of their thrilling sexual chemistry to tenacious Leonie feels tantalizingly worth the risk—to his reputation and his well-protected heart.

Gideon is a multi-millionaire CEO of his family business and a playboy to boot. When the family decides he must toe the line, clean up his act or give up his place as CEO, Gideon knows he can do that and win over the Russian for the biggest deal in the family business history.

Leonie owns her own business selling luxury yachts. When Gideon calls about leasing the largest yacht to schmooze his client, maybe he or the client will end up buying the yacht and she will get a large commission. But talking to Gideon on the phone is making her want to throw her phone or hit him. Either would make her feel better.

When Gideon steps off the plane, Leonie is struck stupid and her jaw hit the ground. And Gideon is almost struck the same with her. There is chemistry and electricity pulling them together, but Gideon cannot give in because his 30 days are not up yet. So, he must remain in control of his lustful feelings.

Will Gideon be able to hold out until the 30 days are up and he is still CEO? Will Leonie make the sale of the yacht and get her commission? And if they give in, will they be able to stop at just one night?

I loved this story and found I could not put it down and finished it in one sitting. It is a fast read that will keep you glued to each page, wanting to know what happens with Gideon and Leonie.

This is a first for me from this author and I can't wait for the next one in this series.

I am delighted that this is the start of a new series – it will be fascinating to watch the Mortimer family members, their conflicts and their loves be revealed over future books. Here we get the story of CEO Gideon.

I really enjoyed being transported to the Mediterranean and experiencing just how the jet-set spend their time and money – and had to chuckle at the 30-day clause that Gideon has signed, and which causes him to have to get creative with Leonie. Because there is no way he cannot be with her... I love the intensity, the lust between these two – it was borne of their anger at love, at betrayal, and at trust. Two beautiful people who seemingly had everything, yet were missing the thing that they wanted the most.

As we get to understand why they have turned their back on love, and how their families have influenced their thoughts and behaviours, we also have to have hope that they will see beyond the immediate issues and open their eyes to new possibilities. I enjoyed getting to see some of the other Mortimers and look forward to finding out how things shape up for some of them in future books.
