Book Review

Thank you to the author for the ARC of Worth the Risk by Clara Mott. All opinions are my own.

This was such a lovely debut novel. I ended up reading it all in one day!



I loved how the author was able to write realistic characters with real problems but also kept the story mostly light-hearted. It was honestly the perfect balance.

I felt bad about how many negative situations Emilia found herself in. She was kind-hearted but didn’t always make the best decisions when it came to her safety. I do feel like her upbringing had a lot to do with that, so it was nice to see her grow despite her past.

Liam was adorable and such a kind friend. I loved how he built up a friendship with Emilia and went out of his way constantly to do thoughtful things for her.

This story is definitely a slow burn when it comes to the romance, but I did like how quickly the friendship formed between the main characters.

Liam’s family was super sweet, and I hope to see more of them in future books. I also hope to see more about Emilia’s best friend in other books because she was really interesting.

This book had so many sweet and romantic moments that made me grin ear to ear.

Final Thoughts

If you’re looking for a sweet college romance, then I would definitely recommend this one!
