Blog Tour: A Risk Worth Taking by Heather Hildenbrand

When 22-year-old Summer Stafford’s parents split halfway
through her senior year at college, Summer’s world is rocked. Everything she
thought she knew—heck, everything she thought she wanted for her own life—feels
like a lie. The truth is love is a risk. And the true kind, the kind that
lasts, might even be a fairy tale.

Reeling from the divorce, Summer derails her own future by
breaking up with her parent-approved boyfriend and giving up her lifelong plans
for a big-city career. She moves back home, business degree in hand. Dad needs
her to fill the gaps her mother left behind; Summer needs to find who she is
outside of the cookie-cutter life that failed so miserably for her parents.

Ford O’Neal’s future involves one person: himself. He
doesn’t have a permanent address and he definitely doesn’t commit. To a place
or a person. Raised by hippies, he plans just far enough ahead to secure his
next stop, this one landing him at a work-study program at Heritage Plantation
where he can grow his own herbal and medicinal creations.

Summer is gorgeous and smart and fun to be with, the perfect
way to pass five months. It won’t be love—Ford’s got too many things to
accomplish, too many places to go, before he settles down. Yet Summer pulls him
in, challenging him to rethink his own philosophy.

When Ford’s five months are up, each of them must decide if
love is really worth the risk.

Tabitha says...

A Risk Worth Taking follows the story of Summer and Ford.

Summer comes home after graduating from college to take over the business side of her father's farm. She is also reeling from her parents recent divorce. Her world was shaken and she believes that love is just a lie. Enter in the sexy new farm hand.

Ford is a plant specialist, who is working on the farm for the summer months. The minute he lays eyes on Summer at the dinner table, he is instantly attracted to her. He quickly finds out though, that Summer has some tough walls to break through.

This was a sweet story of self discovery. Through her time with Ford, Summer realizes that the world isn't just cut and dry, black or white. There are many shades of gray that show themselves when the time is right. Ford is scared of settling down like his parents, and not being able to experience the world to the fullest. Little did he know, he'd find his whole world in the small town of Grayson, Virginia.

I really enjoyed this story. Summer was so spunky, and Ford... Holy Wow! He was just so sweet! He fell so hard for Summer and he made her see that love really is possible.

was born and raised in a small town in
northern Virginia where she was homeschooled through high school. She now lives
in coastal VA, a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean, with her two adorable
children. She works from home, part time, as a property
manager and when she's not furiously pounding at the keyboard, or staring off
into space whilst plotting a new story, she's lying on the beach, soaking in those
delicious, pre-cancerous rays.

Heather loves
Mexican food, hates socks with sandals, and if her house was on fire, the one
thing she'd grab is her DVR player.
