Re-read #3 Oct 2020 -
I'll be honest, I wasn't really in the mood for any book - I had exams and was stressed and couldn't focus and was in a bit of a book burnout after a really intense group challenge - but maybe exactly because of all of it, this story came as a balm for my soul. I would work hard during the day and then, when I go to bed at something o'clock in the morning, I would read about Simon and Paul, and the easy familiarity of an old favorite soothed me enough I could fall asleep, even stressed as I was. And the first thing I did when I finished my last exam today - I sat in my favorite chair and I finished it.

I love Kaje Harper's stories. To me, re-reading her books is like warping myself in a favorite blanket and being all warm & toasty while listening to the falling rain outside. And re-reading Unacceptable Risk this time was like meeting an old friend you didn't think you really missed until you met them again by accident.

Re-read #2 Jun 2016 - This re-read around I was really annoyed by Simon's constant use of "sugar" :/ Still awesome though!

A nice take on the werewolf theme. 3.75 stars. ( )

While there was definite promise in the 1st half of this novel, I felt the writing and world building was not as tight in the 2nd half. Some of the elements of the werewolf mythology almost felt like it was being written into a corner, where if it was left a little more open then maybe the story would have flowed a little better. I liked the build up between the characters, but I did wonder if the tension between the leads didn't have to have a pay off quite so quick. Especially as Paul's sexuality is not cut and dried and he's only been with women up until now. One thing that really bugged me was the dialogue and the joking around saying, there were two instances where it yanked me out of the story and kinda creeped me out.

A good read, just not a favorite. ( )

4 1/2 Stars!

First I have to start by admitting that I do in fact tend to "judge a book by it's cover". The cover is the first thing that attracts me to a book, if I don't like it I tend to not take the time to actually read the blurb to find out about it or the reviews to see the reception it got. So I passed this book up time and time again because I just was not a fan of the cover. Wow! How glad am I that I finally decided to check it out? I loved this book.

I have been reading a lot of shifter books lately and I have to say I was starting to feel like they were all the same. It is almost as if there is a template for what M/M shifter books are supposed to be. Don't get me wrong I have enjoyed most of the ones I have read. Still with that said sometimes I find myself asking "haven't I read this before?". I didn't have any of that with Unacceptable Risk.

Ms. Harper's take on werewolves was different and I liked it. The character's were different in the way they were portrayed. Simon who is a werewolf is not the Alpha, he's not the strongest member of the pack. Simon finds himself constantly on the outside, struggling to be tolerated by others. He is constantly having to face other wolves challenging him. This is a nice change to me because it makes him more real I think. So many times I feel that authors try and make their character the strongest, most confident person, as if trying to show the reader just because he's gay doesn't mean he's weak. But as an avid reader of M/M I don't need this to always be pointed out to me. I want realistic characters and that means sometimes they are going to be just average. Not every character has to be an "Alpha".

The other thing I really liked was the fact that Paul was not just completely accepting of everything that was happening. He wasn't sure about being with another man, he had never considered himself gay or bi. He didn't just take one look at Simon and say "Okay yep let's jump into bed and spend the rest of our lives together". He also had to digest the whole werewolf thing and what it meant and that was not easy.

I can't wait to read the second book in this series.
