Blackmail never felt so right.

Celia Grant has spent the last ten years keeping her past at bay, building her Hollywood reputation as America's Sweetheart. When ex Ryan Harrington threatens to reveal her darkest secrets, she has no choice but to return to Demo, Kansas, and the people she left behind. In exchange for Ryan's silence, she will appear in a reality television show that promises to save his family's legacy.

Ryan Harrington knows an opportunity when he sees one, and using Celia to save his family is one he can’t ignore. But he didn’t count on the pull they still have on each other.

Celia reminds herself that she and Ryan were never destined to have a happily ever after ending like in the movies she stars in. But even as the ghosts of her past refuse to be suppressed any longer, she finds herself tempted by the hopes of a love she never thought she could have.
Between secrets, fame, and love, Celia’s made the riskiest return of all.

Erin: A story that begins with a hero blackmailing the heroine isn’t destined to start off on the right note, and Risky Business by Nicole Helm certainly didn’t. Ryan Harrington sees and opportunity to save his family, and what better way to do that than to blackmail his ex, and America’s current sweetheart, Celia Grant into doing a reality show? And to make matter worse for Celia, the show will take place in her hometown, a place that has nothing but bad memories for her.

Lots of secrets, an evil mother, and a conniving hero (who did manage to grow on me a bit by the end) made this a roller coaster for sure. The chemistry between Celia and Ryan felt a bit out of place and forced and unfortunately, I found myself skimming much of this book. Maybe it would appeal to others, but it wasn’t for me.

Erin is a book addict! She loves books of all kinds, but her favorites are Contemporary Romance or YA (and she reads both boy/boy AND boy/girl, sometimes even girl/girl!) She's been reading since she could hold a book in her hands and doesn't see that changing any time soon. Give her a Coke, kick ass tunes from her favorite playlists, and a book, and she's in reading heaven.

She's a Texan, though she drinks her tea plain and NOT sweet. She loves cheesecake, strawberry limeade's from Sonic and her favorite color is purple. In her books, she loves an HEA, but she never minds if the road is rough to get there, as long as the reward is worth the struggle.
