Review: Risky (Torn Between Two Lovers #2) by Jo Davis

TORN BETWEEN TWO LOVERS is a gripping and sexy romance trilogy with a unique twist: Our heroine needs your help to decide who wins her heart…RISKY is the second novella in this sizzling new series, in which two enticing men will vie for Anna’s heart—culminating in a choice that will be determined by reader vote!

Still hurting badly from Grayson Sloan’s betrayal, Anna Claire meets Joaquin Delacruz—and she is completely won over by the wealthy and sophisticated casino mogul. Joaquin is like no one else she’s ever known—insanely sexy, passionate. . .and extremely dangerous.

Joaquin’s fortune is built on crime; but unlike Gray, he hides absolutely nothing from her. Soon she finds herself ensnared in the web of a powerful, magnetic man who can’t—and won’t—promise her forever.

But Joaquin is used to getting what he wants, and he wants Anna. He is even starting to dream of going legit and living a normal life, with Anna by his side. That is, if Anna's ex, the FBI agent who is his most hated enemy, doesn't get in his way. . .

So, will you join #TeamJoaquin or #TeamGrayson? Make the informed choice: Check out RAW, the first in the series, and REWARDED, where Anna’s decision will be revealed, in February 2014.

This second entry in the Torn Between Two Lovers series revolves around Anna and Joaquin. After what she felt was a betrayal by FBI agent Grayson, heads off to Aruba where she encounter Mister tall, dark and gorgeous Joaquin. Little does she know he’s the man Grayson has been trying to catch his hand at being dirty. Joaquin’s intentions is to use Anna to hurt Grayson, but instead he finds himself very much attracted to her as she does to him.  Unlike Grayson, he hides absolutely nothing from her. Anna quickly finds herself in a world-wind romance with Joaquin. Now the only question left is which man will Anna chose…Grayson or Joaquin.


Just as the first book in the series, Risky reads fast and is loaded with romance, smoldering sex and intrigue. Unfortunately I am even more  iffy on if I like Anna character. Where running her own restaurant was such a issue in the first book, it just doesn’t seem that it’s all that important to her now. Joaquin is a hot, rich, self-assured and probably everything a woman could want. The sex between them is sizzling and Joaquin sure does know how to romance a girl. Yet there’s something missing. Oh wait…he’s not Grayson! Where Grayson’s romance with Anna was probably not the smartest thing he could have done, their meeting was part of his job. Joaquin’s meeting was initiated by revenge. Granted he didn’t carry through on hurting Anna but still he deliberately did set out to follow her for that reason.


So in case you haven’t figured it out, I am Team Grayson. One more book to go before we find out which man Anna chooses.  I still think the fans voting for which guy gets the girl is a fairly interesting concept. I can’t wait to see how this plays out. And, with Risky ending on such a cliffhanger I find myself itching for the next book to be released. May the best man win!
