Andrew McQuaid wasn't always the local playboy. Once upon a time, he wanted to spend the rest of his life with one woman-Gia Mancuso. When he made a mistake and lost her, he decided he wasn't meant to have a happy-ever-after. Now, Gia's come back to town, with a baby in tow, and it might just mean a second chance at forever, if he can convince her that he never stopped loving her.

Ten years after leaving, Gia finds herself back in Hidden Falls. Between helping her ailing father save the family restaurant and taking care of the baby her sister left on her doorstep, she doesn't have time for the man who once broke her heart. But Andrew is all grown-up now, in every single way. And the part of her that has always been his can't quite say no to his tempting kisses.

Just when Gia begins to open her heart, a devastating secret emerges that threatens to destroy her family and any future with Andrew. Are they doomed to repeat the mistakes of their past or can Andrew convince Gia that she's always been his one and only?

It's funny how quickly I'm reminded just how much I love T.J. Kline's books. I admit that I keep missing her new releases, but it is never on purpose. I'm always looking back and asking myself how the heck did I miss the previous books. How on earth did I miss books one and two in Kline's Hidden Falls series? That will be rectified quickly, I promise you. What I loved the most about T.J.'s newest book, Risking it All, was the range of emotions she awoken in her characters and in myself . There was Gia's frustration and determination when it came to her misguided sister (and I'm putting that lightly). Then of course we have the love and joy of finding and rekindling a second chance romance. I adored Gia and Andrew from the moment he comes upon her sticky situation on the side of the road. And lastly, the sheer blinding distrust for Gia's sister. Seriously, it's been a long time since I really wanted to slap the bitch and I wanted to strangle her several times over the course of this book. From the first chapter to the very end of the epilogue, I loved each page of Risking it All

T. J. Kline was bitten by the horse bug early and began training horses at fourteen—as well as competing in rodeos and winning several rodeo queen competitions—but has always known writing was her first love. She also writes under the name Tina Klinesmith. In her spare time, she can be found spending as many hours as possible laughing hysterically with her husband, teens, and their menagerie of pets in Northern California. That is, when she isn't running around the California Gold Country researching new stories.
