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.
Calculated Risk by Rachael Duncan is a fantastic book which captivated me from the beginning. I could relate to many aspects and often felt a part of the story. I frequently wished that I could push a pause button on life and read the story in one sitting. The story line is just wonderful and full of drama, angst, love, humor, heartbreak and passion.
Lydia felt very real to me and I could relate to growing up with a critical parent and an a$$hole ex-fiancé. I understood why she would pretend she was married and guard herself. Marcus was so funny when pursuing her, but I completely fell for him when he stepped back and waited for Lydia. I think it takes a strong man to be able to do that!
