Risky Pleasures (4.5) is classic Brenda Jackson -- with hot romance, a hot hero and an unbelievably romantic setting. Jackson delivers great stories and has a knack for depicting her characters' innermost feelings. Vanessa Steele is on the run from her feelings and from Cameron Cody, who is in full pursuit. Vanessa's excuse of not forgiving Cameron for his failed takeover of her family's business is wearing thin. When she goes to Jamaica to house-sit, he even buys the house next door! Cameron decided a long time ago that she's the woman for him, and he's determined to win her over. Overcoming Vanessa's strong will is a challenge that he's up for, and he knows they'll both emerge winners.
