Product Description

She’s everything he wants…

For years, Kyle Morgan has hidden his true feelings from the gorgeous girl next door that he grew up loving and protecting. But when she shows up at his apartment in the middle of the night, desperately needing comfort and support, his iron will begins to waver…

…and the only thing he can’t bear to lose.

Kyle was always the big brother Cecelia Anton never had, but suddenly her goofy best friend has become a sexy man she can’t keep her thoughts—or hands—off of. As their deep connection melts into uncontrollable desire, Ceci is willing to put it all on the line for a shot at true love. Only Kyle is keeping a terrible secret about Ceci’s past that could destroy not only their lifelong friendship but their happily-ever-after…

This is my first book to read by Author J.M. Stewart. Risking It All is a fantastic book and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. As I started to read this book, my thought was "I've never read a romance book quite like this before", but I was very intrigued. The longer I read, the storyline became more interesting and intriguing. The author did an excellent job with the details and all the characters in this novel. Also, the author was wonderful in keeping my attention to keep reading until the very end. I definitely recommend reading Risking It All by J.M. Stewart and I'm looking forward to reading another book by this author.

I received a complimentary copy from the publisher and author through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. This review is one hundred percent my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars What We Risk For Love 20 September 2014
By Rosemary - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Kyle Morgan has always loved and protected Cecelia ever since the day she and her grandmother had moved in next door. Now she needs him now more than ever. She's alone and pregnant. Kyle knows he wants her and the baby in his life. Can he convince her once he tells her his secret? I love Kyle. He is such a strong, caring man. Ceci lives with fear and vivid dreams. She needs to find her parents and learn why they left her. She wants to know about her past so she can move forward. These two have always been best friends but now they feel a strong attraction. I was overjoyed when they became lovers. It was so romantic and touching. Kyle is the perfect hero. It took me longer to warm up to Ceci. I understood her but just didn't care for her actions. I enjoyed Risking It All. It's well-plotted and entertaining. Kyle and Ceci are strong and engaging characters. I enjoyed the supporting characters as well. I hope to see more of them. I really want to know if Jackson and Becca reconcile. JM Stewart is a gifted writer. This is such a heart-warming friends to lovers story that when I finished I was teary eyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars You will love Kyle Morgan! 17 September 2014
By sgalley - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
4.5 Stars
I love books where the couple starts out as best friends and realizes there is something more between them. That is the case with Kyle Morgan and his Cecilia Anton. They have been best friends for twenty years. He has been fighting his attraction to Ceci for the past three years. She has recently discovered her feelings for Kyle after a bad break-up with her boyfriend…one that leaves her pregnant and alone. She appears on Kyle’s doorstep, desperate for a friend. Of course he is there for her, though he has been keeping his distance lately because he has such a hard time controlling his feelings for her. Now that she is pregnant and alone, he intends to step up to the plate and be there for her.

I married my best friend, and I KNOW that those are the best, most solid marriages. I don’t understand the trope of friends not being able to take their relationship further for fear of losing the friendship. Excuse me? What happens to the friendship when these feelings are present and you DON’T act upon them? What happens when the person you care the most about moves on to another relationship? What does THAT do to the friendship? I didn’t have a lot of patience with the back and forth debate of not developing the romantic side of their relationship for the sake of their friendship. I felt that Ceci went overboard with that theme. I was relieved when that drama was over. That was the ONLY negative to this story. It was a mild aggravation. I still loved the story.

RISKING IT ALL has a layer of mystery and suspense that adds to the plot, and keep the pages turning – although the relationship between Kyle and Ceci is steamy enough to hold your interest. As far as book boyfriends go, I would definitely rate Kyle in the top ten. He was a sexy cop, with a soft side that made you love him. Sigh…

J.M. Stewart writes a solid and sexy romance, with just enough heat. It has a beginning, a middle and an end. There is no cliff-hanger. I loved it, and will be looking forward to reading more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best friend Love.... 20 September 2014
By Tabitha Jones-A Closet Full of Books - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I truly,truly loved this book right from the start. a fabulous best friends tale of wanting more out of a relationship. Kyle police officer and best friend to Ceci has had more than a long lasting friendship with her. he secretly has loved her just as long. When Ceci knocks on his door one day in the pouring rain their worlds will forever be changed. Will Kyle confess his true feelings to Ceci? Will Ceci be able to move past their friendship and give them a chance. Not only is this book full of love and romance, but also lies and deceit. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series. - See more at:

Cecelia has hit rock bottom; her last blood relative is gone, she can’t remember parts of her past, her relationship is over and her best friend is pulling away from her. Her life is rapidly spinning out of control and Ceci’s unsure of how to regain control. Ceci’s best friend Kyle is the only person she feels she can turn too, will Kyle and Ceci be able to gain control together?

Kyle is one of many in the Morgan family that has “adopted” Ceci into their fold. Kyle is a detective, who works hard to keep the streets clean, so what does he do when his best friend is dating a dirty guy? Childhood friends and neighbors, Kyle and Cecelia have developed a bond that’s built to withstand almost anything.

The tension between Kyle and Cecelia is felt within minutes of starting Risking It All. Not only is she showing up on his doorstep in the middle of the night but also tears his heart out with three little words. Relying on their deeply developed bond Kyle welcomes Cecelia into his home and heart without consequence. Kyle willing steps up to the plate and helps out his friend however, Ceci is reluctant can she risk their friendship by accepting his help? Can they take it to the next step and become lovers? As parts of her memory are returning will it affect their relationship? Kyle has knowledge on many things but past promises keep his lips sealed. Those promises drive a wedge between the friends and threaten to end it all. The couple takes a break to rethink and re-evaluate their lives. With a little push from the Morgan family they take the big risk and let fate take it from there.

This is the first JM Stewart novel that I have read; it was slightly different from my normal but still an enjoyable read. I did not relate to all of the characters but I did feel emotion/curiosity for many of them. While JM told the story between Kyle and Cecelia, she peaked my interest on book two, Whatever It Takes. If someone is looking for a quick afternoon read that includes a friend to lovers twist, Risking It All would be a go-to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful contemporary romance 23 September 2014
By Pamerd - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a very emotional story of family, friendship and secrets. The first in a new series by a northwest author that looks promising for romance lovers who enjoy family drama.

Kyle Morgan is a police detective in Puyallup, Washington. He has known Cecelia Anton for almost twenty years; they have been best friends and tell each other everything, stressing that there will never be any lies between them. Unfortunately Kyle has been keeping two secrets from her and it has been eating away at him, enough that he has been pretending to be too busy to keep their standing Saturday movie night or their daily phone calls. Not only have his feelings for her changed from friendship to something more, he also knows about her past, something she is desperate to learn.

Cece has no memory from before she was seven, nothing about her parents or why she has always lived with her grandmother. She has recurring nightmares and is deathly afraid of guns but when she asked her grandmother she never received a straight answer. When her grandmother dies, Kyle reluctantly promises to let Cece uncover her memories on her own. Things start to change when Cece finds she is in trouble and goes to the only person she trusts.

Risking it All is an extremely emotional ride from start to finish. When Kyle’s feelings changed he was so confused and unsure, he hated to pull away but was afraid of how Cece would react. But when she comes to him for help he forgets about his troubles and vows to do all he can, what he does not count on are her feelings for him. I like the two together however Cece’s arguments of not wanting to lose what they have if something goes wrong gets a little frustrating, I also wish Kyle would have given up on his promise earlier, Cece needed to know to help her start the healing process. Overall I really enjoyed the story and will definitely pick up the next one featuring another Morgan family member and their struggles with love.
