Risking It All: A Naked Men Novel - Christi Barth

This was a fun read and a great way to begin a series. I love the concept of an all-male blog talking about feelings to work out their problems. In this story, both hero and heroine have had incredibly traumatic pasts, both still dealing with the aftermath in different ways. Griff is a leader, has been since his youth. He is also a risk taker and has been grounded for doing just that. When he sees something he wants, he goes for it in as direct a way as possible. Enter Chloe who is more of a quiet, watch-the-world-go-by girl, insulated in her happy world. Because of the other, they learn more about themselves and what they need to do to be together. The humor had me smiling throughout the story. Feelings were revealed in such a way that they tugged at my heart and brought tears to my eyes. I look forward very much to the next book in this series. I highly recommend this book. It is sweet at times and quite sassy at others. It also made me look at my own life for a moment.
