ARC REVIEW Trying It All by Christi Barth

Trying It All is book 4 in Christi Barth's Naked Men series. While the series for me has been hit or miss I definitely liked this one. I could see Riley and Summer coming from a mile away with their disdain for each other, it was a great hate to love relationship. Where they were just supposed to sleep with each other to get it out of their system but they kept on doing it and before they knew it it was love. Riley has been ever since the accident that made him and his friends famous the worst case scenario boy scout. Summer has been ever since almost dying in a campus shooting a fly by the seat of her pants why put it off tomorrow if you can do it today and live life to the fullest. They are opposites who have more in common then one may think. Their personal tragedies may have set them in opposites directions but they understand each other better than anyone else.

Riley dedicated his life to make sure everyone is safe from preventable accidents as a employee of the National Transportation Safety Board he is doing what he set out to do. Riley initially thought Summer was flaky and her spontaneous ways just immature, and then he kissed her and everything changed. Riley found out that Summer is so much more than she lets on. Summer has no problems making plans for other people or for her business but never for herself personally. Summer first thought Riley's excessive planning was annoying but after getting to know him and finding the reason for it she finds it cute, but will her impetuous nature cause more problems between them than they can handle?

Overall, the story is an emotional journey for both Riley and Summer they both have to face things they thought they had figured out but falling in love with each other made them view things differently. I may not have liked Griffin in his own story but he has become the voice of reason and one of the most sensible characters in the series and OMG Chloe best part of the book. The story in general was a good read I liked both characters and the whole conflict at the end was heartbreaking it had me in tears and the sex was deliciously naughty and so hot.
