    3. I received this book from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. One Last Risk is the first book in the new Oak Grove series by Nancy Stopper.

    6. The great thing about NetGalley is FREE BOOKS! All I have to do is give my honest opinion, which hey, as a mother, I'm glad to be giving my opinion to someone who actually wants to hear it. I've read some really great books because of NetGalley.But I've also read some not-so-great books, too. Because the downside to NetGalley is that you don't get a couple preview chapters before you request a book. All you have to go on is the book summary, and I thought the premise of One Last Risk sounded rea [...]

    11. As I started reading One Last Risk I prepared myself for an emotional romance between two deeply wounded characters. While they both lost someone very close to them - Lucas lost his best friend and partner while Sarah lost her husband - their reactions couldn't be more different. Lucas allowed his guilt to override his sense of safety and he started to put himself into dangerous situations, always pushing every moment of a fire to the very brink of disaster. Until the day it caught up to him and [...]

    13. Nancy Stopper is a new author to me, but I was inspired to read her book, basically because it was set in Pennsylvania, not in Philly or Pittsburgh, but in a fictional town called Oak Grove, which literally could be the town I live in, and it made such a refreshing change to read a small town romance, in a place I could actually relate to.When it came to the plot, it was even more sweet than I expected. With the character Sarah, relocating to Oak Grove, with her daughter Lily, after losing her h [...]

    15. 3.5 Stars - This was a pretty good book. I liked Sarah and Lucas as well as their story. I enjoyed getting to know the secondary characters and look forward to what's to come in this series, especially with Lucas' sister. And even though this appeared to be a heavy read about loss and coming to terms with moving on, it was surprisingly light.What I struggled with was connecting with the characters and the loss to which they were clinging. I needed a little more depth and history from them both a [...]

    18. Lucas and Sarah's story was a heartfelt, beautiful story by Nancy Stopper!

He fights the one thing every day that took her home and husband away from her.Will this huge secret tear these two apart? This story had eve [...]

    19. This is a sweet, dramatic and charming story about love, grief, forgiveness and new beginnings.

The instant their eyes meet, they are pulled towards each. Neither is ready or willing to have a serious relationship, but they can't themselves.
