“…Ms. Davis delivered her story well and I enjoyed every bit of it. ” ~Under the Covers

In this second installment of Torn Between Two Lovers, Ms. Davis delivered the full story of the love triangle. Where Raw focuses solely on Anna Claire’s Relationship with Grayson James, Risky focuses on Anna’s relationship with Joaquin. And personally, I enjoyed this novel much better than the first and totally loving Joaquin more than Gray. Yes, I admit, I AM MOST DEFINITELY TEAM JOAQUIN.

Risky takes off right where Raw had ended. Anna now is taking her vacation away from Gray and meeting the third members of this love triangle. I actually enjoyed Anna and Joaquin’s story. Their coming together is raw and honest. I thought their attraction was off the charts from the get go and Joaquin coming clean with his intentions was unexpected. I actually thought he would lie through his teeth to get Anna into his bed and later fall for her like Gray did. But he did it; he managed to get my attention as well as Anna’s. Not only he swept her off her feet, he took the time to get to know her and to let her get to know him. That kind of beginning just takes away that insta-love type of relationship as what Anna had with Gray. And if she was smart she would do well to choose the honest man versus the one that lied from the beginning. Joaquin is dangerous, with a not so innocent past (but straightening out his present), rich, and hot as hell. There’s just no better choice.

Ms. Davis also added a bit of action and more suspense in this installment which I enjoyed more than the first book. The steam factor was hotter and I find I find it more sensual. Like I said, Ms. Davis delivered her story well and I enjoyed every bit of it. The next series will be the decision of who Anna will end up with. If you didn’t already know, Ms. Davis has not decided on whom Anna will choose. This will be up to the readers who will vote for the man they want Anna with. If you couldn’t tell already by my review, I am totally for Team Joaquin.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.

The series sounds good but I would have to wait for the last books release before I read since I hate cliffhanger types of books. I need answers or it drives me nuts.

hey Timitra, I don’t usually like them either. So far the angst here is not to bad. and what I like about this is that it’s an adult novel vs. NA love triangle.
If that makes sense. ~Angela
