Risking It All – Joyce d’Mot

The last three years of Kenya Davis’s love life were rife with false starts and heartaches in her pursuit to get back her ex-boyfriend, Dave. The one bright spot she clung to was her job as a health scientist with the CDC. When she received a promotion that placed her in the field, Kenya saw it as the distraction she desperately needed.
Simon Washington lived a charmed life before his world came crashing down around him. One fateful night full of confusion and heartache, he found himself accused of domestic violence and the attempted murder of a police officer. The once-affluent businessman was now on the run from the law, leaving behind his wife, a thriving business, and his social status.
Kenya’s new position took her under the interstate bridge to the homeless, but among the poor and hungry, she discovered Simon. Their worlds collided in an unexpected mash-up of uncertainty and desire.
Kenya wanted to comfort him, despite the warning bells going off in her head. Was he the dangerous criminal the news described him as or the same guy she knew from college? Should she trust the man who fell into her world and crowded everything else out?
Simon felt drawn to the courageous, kind-hearted spirit who refused to protect herself from his drama and accept that her trust in him put her in danger. He had to push her away, but the sweetness of her presence was hard to give up when he needed it so much.
Risking It All follows Kenya and Simon as they walk through a minefield of emotions and close calls to find and maintain their freedom and maybe even love—with or without each other.
