Release Blitz & Review::: Calculated Risk by Rachael Duncan

by - 9:48 AM

Title: Calculated Risk
Author: Rachael Duncan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 7, 2016

I thought the ring on my finger would do the trick and keep men away. All I wanted was to save my heart from shattering--again. The truth is, I'm not married. The ring was just a ploy--a ploy to keep me safe, protected from pain.
But then Marcus Riley came along with his goofy pick-up lines, and he saw right through the facade. He knew the truth, and he wanted me. God help me, I wanted him too--in so many ways. But love is a risk, a painful, scary risk. One I'm too afraid to take.
He's the one risk worth taking.
But it just might come at a price.

4 1/2 out of 5 stars

Marcus and Lydia have quite the story to tell. There were moments in this book when I was so caught up in the story, I could see it all playing out in my head. I loved the way Marcus loved Lydia and I hated the way she tried to fight it. I loved the way he wasn’t all Alpha dog about taking care of her, but he still totally cared for her.

There were some big surprises in the middle of the book that I didn’t see coming, but I thought they flowed right in and made the story. The connection that Ms Duncan created between Marcus & Lydia was easy to feel and cherish. There was no way for me not to totally fall in love with Marcus - he was funny, sexy, strong, loving, protective, and everything one wants in the perfect book boyfriend!

I think my favorite part of their courtship was his corny pick up lines and how he carried them thru their entire relationship. It was silly, but the perfect way to bring a little humor into the story when it was getting a little heavy!

This story was gripping. The drama was shocking. The love was fantastical. I love this author and this story didn’t disappoint at all for me. I loved the group of friends and am excited to read other books in this series.

"I read this book within 4 hours! I love everything about this book!!" -5-star review
I want to yell. I want to cuss. I want to hit and lash out at them in the most violent of ways, but I’m too broken. Because in the last few minutes, all of my dreams came crashing down. What I once thought was perfect was all a lie. A repulsive, cut you to your soul kind of lie.
Stalker: Caught ya. My brows furrow in confusion as I try to figure out what he’s talking about. After several seconds and still no clue, I text him back. Me: Caught me what? Stalker: Thinking about me. With a grin, I respond. Me: What makes you so sure I was thinking about you? Stalker: Because I was thinking of you.
