Book Review: An Unconventional Affair Book 2, A Risk Worth Sharing by Mollie Blake

Black Opal Books, Jan 2019

This second part of An Unconventional Affair finds Barrington Stone working in Australia for a year. Tranquility “Tee” Hammond, fifteen years his senior, has ended their affair, but for Barrington it was never over. He can’t wait for the year to pass to go back to her. However, after a drunken encounter, with a woman he later discovers is a sex worker, his life is changed forever. How can he possibly leave Australia, now that he has a daughter?

After accepting that Barrington won’t be coming back to the UK, Tee rekindles her relationship with the charming-yet-unconventional Sebastian Chandler, owner of a motorsports racetrack. Although living with Sebastian is “complicated” and life for the couple isn’t perfect, they are settled and Tee is happy.

But everything changes when Barrington returns. Tee’s heart is in turmoil, and Sebastian is afraid he will lose the woman he loves. As the plot thickens and twists unravel, Barrington must decide if there is one risk worth sharing.

An Unconventional Affair Book Two, A Risk Worth Sharing is the latest novel in the Cheshire Love Stories series.

Tranquility ‘Tee’ Hammond has ended her relationship with Barrington Stone. Heartbroken, Barrington focuses on his new temporary job in Australia as he tries to forget the love of his life.

Then he finds out something that will keep him in Australia longer than a year; something that will change his life forever.

Tee, also brokenhearted finds comfort in the arms of an old friend, Sebastian.

Years later, when Barrington returns to the UK, Tee doesn’t know how to handle it.

Sebastian also senses the threat.

Can Tee and Barrington be together again?

Having not read book one, I was a little concerned that it would make this book harder to read. It was not the case. It was easy to catch up with what was going on with these characters at the beginning of book two (although reading book one will obviously give you a better idea of their history.)

Tee is a strong female character and knows what she wants. She has been through a lot and it is clear that she is frightened of getting herself into vulnerable situations.

It was Barrington I found the most fascinating. He is a complicated character and makes both good and bad decisions, like all people. He’s flawed in many ways but also good.

There are many layers to this book. There are erotic moments yes but there is also romance, suspense and page turning moments with many themes explored.

I personally really enjoyed this book; interesting characterisation and development being one of the main reasons. There are plenty of twists and turns, bittersweet and happy moments. It’s very much worth the read.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
