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. . .
Risky starts up where Raw ended. If you read my review for Raw then you know it ended with a big cliffhanger. I’ve been eagerly waiting for this novella to be released.
When Joaquin and Anna meet for the first time the sparks fly. There’s an instant attraction that’s very strong between the two. I’m sort of conflicted about their relationship. This series involves a love triangle. I knew this going in, but when things started to happen between Joaquin and Anna I sort of felt like she was a slut jumping from one guy’s bed to the other so quickly. I just had mixed feeling about this. She’s well aware that Gray who’s her love interest in book one doesn’t like Joaquin. Gray portrays Joaquin as a very bad criminal who does very bad things. I know for the sake of the story things had to happen the way they did. I just wish things didn’t feel so rushed.
The smexy times are comparable to adult mainstream. They are well written and there’s more then one scene within this short novella.
Overall, I liked this one. It also ends with a big cliffhanger and I can’t wait to read the final novella in this series. I have a feeling it’s going to be epic and I can’t wait to see who Anna chooses as her lover. I really like Gray and hope that’s who she picks.
I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Raw 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… RAW introduces 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!
Anna Claire is a prominent restaurateur, the toast of New York. She’s not one to let down her guard, but her new prep chef is gorgeous enough to cause her to break her own rules, and soon she’s tearing up the sheets with Grayson James. More than that, she’s falling in love.
Until she discovers that Grayson is no chef. He’s an FBI agent investigating a drug ring he suspects is using her restaurant. Anna is shattered to learn she was just part of his cover.
The case means everything to Gray, right until the moment he loses what matters the most—not his intended target, but Anna. Gray is devastated when the woman he loves learns of his betrayal. Especially with his greatest enemy all too eager to take advantage of her…

OMG! I need novella #2. Like. Right. Now. Such a cliffhanger with this one. Boo 🙁
Ok. This being a novella of course it’s pretty short. Things move at a very fast pace.
I liked both Anna and Gray’s characters. I found them both to be interesting. I was happy when they acted upon their attraction for each other. I think together they make a good couple.
The sexual scenes are comparable to adult main stream. They were both well written and hot. Even though this first part of the overall story there was more than one sexual scene. 🙂
Overall, I liked the plot of this one and found the characters to be interesting. Jo Davis is one of my favorite authors. Her books draw me in and keep me turning page after page to see what will happen next. I highly recommend this one. I feel this will be a great mini-series.
