For successful businessman Bran Wilson, selling the large Montana dairy farm that has been in his family for generations is an easy decision. He hates the farm, the land, even the cows, and wants nothing to do with any of it. But there’s a glitch in his plan: a stubborn cowboy from New Zealand who is as sexy as he is aggravating.

Kaden Barker loves the Wilson farm, and respected Bran’s grandfather up until the day he died. With his two best friends, he’s taken over working the farm and caring for the cows, and he’d happily spend the rest of his days doing it.

When Bran charges into his life, telling him he’s selling the farm and there’s nothing Kaden, or his friends, can do about it, the animosity between them is instant. But so is the attraction, and only one extreme can win out.

Dare to Risk is an engaging story of two men who hates each other on sight but eventually fall in love. This book is having a bevy of characters who are intriguing and interesting and manages to capture your interest.

Bran and Kaden hate each other, but as they work together, they learn to tolerate each other and realize that they have an attraction. But often Bran’s hard headed nature gets in their way and leads to them not really understanding each other. But slowly as the story progresses they find common ground and their connection is explored. What I liked about this book is that all the secondary characters in this story is having equal importance and all of them play a big part in the story. But also what I did not like was Bran’s attitude towards the farm and Kaden. At times it was almost as if he was whining and after a point it was irritating to read about it. But in spite of the problem, I really enjoyed reading about all the characters and how Bran and Kaden finally found their happily ever after.

Dare to Risk is a really enjoyable start to a new series with a bunch of interesting characters. I’ll be looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
