The girl afraid of taking chances. The guy always looking for his next thrill. Staying on the ground or soaring through the air... Falling in love is the biggest risk of all.
Jake Chapman loses himself in extreme sports to fill the emptiness in his life. But when he meets CPA Claire Callahan at Cypress Corners, he wants to spend his visit proving to her that living in the moment is worth the risk.
Claire cares for her ailing father, a compulsive gambler who repeatedly risked all they had in the quest for a new high. When she falls for Jake, beloved uncle to her close friends' little boy, she throws her own caution to the wind for once in her life. But his risk-taking soon shows her he's as addicted to the rush as her father is, and she won't put her heart in danger.
Can Jake be the man Claire needs to keep her heart safe? Or will his thirst for adventure keep him from taking the biggest risk of all?
