Review of CARNAL RISK (Club Altura #1) by Kym Grosso

Powerful CEO, Garrett Emerson’s, life and corporation are built on a foundation of risk taking and top secret priorities. He works hard, but plays even harder. When tragedy strikes, the charismatic and sexy billionaire takes the gamble of his life by bringing a beautiful consultant into his inner sanctum, exposing her to his exclusive society of extreme athletes who are adventurous both in business and pleasure. Inexplicably drawn to the intriguing woman, Garrett teaches her to face her fears, bringing them both to new levels of ecstasy.

Selby Reynolds, a high profile technology specialist, reluctantly accepts an engagement at Emerson Industries. Discovering secrets and uncovering clues to a murder, she’s swept into Garrett's dangerous but seductive life of luxury. Captivated by the world renowned capitalist and adventurer, she’s convinced he could crush her heart. As he pushes her sexual limits and their erotic play intensifies, Selby finds it impossible to resist the one man who turns her darkest fantasies into a reality.

When Selby’s life is threatened by a killer, carnal lessons of trust are put to the test, forcing them to choose who is friend and who is foe. Can Selby give her heart to a man who revels in the excitement of flirting with death? Will they prevail against an enemy who threatens to tear apart Garrett’s world, including the fragile connection with the woman he seeks to claim as his own?

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

When you are a daredevil and an adrenalin junkie the risk is never enough, even if death is a distinct possibility!  For billionaire entrepreneur Garrett Emerson the more dangerous the risk, the better! In this new series by author Kym Grosso, we are introduced to this panty dropping, danger seeking, alpha male and the woman that raises his blood pressure alone with other body parts.  Carnal Risk, book one in the Club Altura Romance series will trigger the readers adrenalin flow, as well. Once again this amazing author constructs a world of intrigue and romance that captures her readers and traps them within the story she has created.

Garrett Emerson is a self-made man, with one fault.  He loves to push the envelope when it comes to danger and gets off on it. It does not just involve the high he gets from participating in extreme sports, but also from getting down and dirty by pushing his sexual pleasures to the next level! His life changes when he fines a new source for a high and adrenalin rush, her name is Selby. 

Selby Reynolds has secrets.  Secrets that when reveled will shoot down any interest Garrett Emerson might have had in her!  The woman that everyone sees on the outside, the confidant woman is not who she really is. He is a risk taker and she is just the opposite, secure in things that she does well, not exploring things outside her comfort zone.  That is until she meets Garrett Emerson and it seems he knows how to push the correct buttons to get her to step outside the box.
Someone is killing Emerson employees and now their eyes are on Selby.  Will Selby and Garett unravel the mystery before it is too late?   

Hero: Garrett Emerson 4.5 stars
Heroine: Selby Reynolds 4.5 stars
Steam: 4.5 stars 
Plot: 4.5 stars 
Cliffhanger: No

Would I recommend this book: Yes! When a book has hot, hunky alpha males and a smart sexy female that do whatever is necessary to get the job done, then it is a great read.  This book sizzles with intense attraction while dealing with ‘a who done’ question!

Would I recommend this author: Yes!  Ms. Grosso’s paranormal series is a favorite read for me, one that I have reread many times.  Her new venture into contemporary romance is worth reading as well.  Characters are charismatic and the storyline is original and unique in concept.  Cannot wait to read the next in this series!
