Publisher's Summary

Cover girl Cat St. James's picture-perfect life is anything but flawless. Luckily, she's a master of hiding the truth from the camera. Relying on that skill, she conceals her latest secret from her family while attending her brother's wedding. Her only trouble now is Hank Mitchell - the soft-spoken carpenter she'd once brushed aside. Seeing him at the reception underscores her private heartache and ignites unwelcome longing, which she promptly drowns in champagne.

Hank is no stranger to sacrifice, having set aside his own ambitions to take care of his family. One thing he won't forsake is his pride, which Cat already wounded once. But when the maddening beauty's reckless behavior forces him to rush to her rescue, he sets in motion a series of events that leads Cat to make a business proposal granting him his dream job.

When Cat and Hank mix business with pleasure, promises and secrets unravel, and each must decide if and what they'll surrender for love.

Another Great Addition to the St. James Series!

I fell in love with the characters on ther first St. James Book! Cat is one of my favorite characters. She is a gorgeous model and has gone through a lot since her mom died. Having a crazy ex-boyfriend to boot doesn't help, specially after what happened on the first book.

Hank is a great guy and so dedicated to his mom and sisters. Cat and him have so much quemistry! He is smart to thread with caution after Cat blew him off the previous year by not calling him back.

Cat gets some major news that will affect the rest of her life and instead of opening up for support, she clams up and tries to keep her distance from Hank. Telling him she doesn't want a relationship.

The narrator did a great job. Such a great listen that is hard to put down!

I'm looking forward to the next book. Jackson has been so troubled throughout this book! Hopefully he will find the girl of his dreams that will treat him right.

Letdown

Rambling plot and letdown from book 1. Book 1 had a bit a gratuitous sex but this one took it too far. Stopped the series (of three books) halfway thru book two.

I LOVED THIS BOOK

The story of Hank and Catalinia maybe sad in some ways it is truthful and shows that sometimes life can be unforgiving but with the right person you can still be excited and happy with life.

After having to intervene where Jackson is concerned the family becomes stronger still and they learn of the past that has bothered him the last several months. Jackson is a driving force in Cat's life and the brother she turns ro.

After turning Hank away and still not talking with him the last time they were together Cat must find a way to get to talk with Hank again and make it right between them, she doesn't like hurting people, so she finds a way to bring them together again and change his mind about her.

This book was good and very enjoyable!

The narrations by Kate Rudd where great I love her job and her voices are amazing, she really brought to life Cat and Hank and all the secondary characters.. she made the story more enjoyable.

...

Cat, was a very famous model, she had everything she ever wanted, at least is what she thought, life and circumstances put her in a very bad situation, a past relationship that left her scared and afraid in someway.. until someone got into her life that made her doubts disappear and hope started to grow in her heart again.

Hank had a very difficult life, he had to take care of his family especially his mother, his work was everything. he didn't have time for relationships or even to date.. everything consumed his life and mind but soon something will happen that he will have to refocus his priorities and decide if he wants to take charge of his personal life again..

so many things happened for these two to finally lower their walls and start to love again.. Hanks has so many issues and Cat has a secret that she is not so entirely sure she wants to share.. her life has changed so much after finding out some news and now she has to decide if she is willing to let Hank In or keep walking her life alone..

in Worth the trouble we get to see other characters that we met before David and Vivi also we get to learn more about Jackson story and many other great characters that made this story more enjoyable..

great story and great characters.. looking forward to meet Jackson on Worth the Risk..
