Earlier this year I read Play With Me by Alisha Rai, book one in this series and liked it a lot. It starts the story of Wyatt and Tatiana, who once were deeply in love as teenagers, but their relationship ended. Years later, Wyatt has gone from having nothing to owning his own casino in Las Vegas. Tatiana decided not to pursue science like her parents, instead she makes her own jewelry. After being reunited in book one, they realize their passion is still there and now they want to make their relationship work. Risk & Reward shows us the struggle Wyatt and Tatiana have to openly communicate and to get along with her family. Oh – and it has really, really dirty sex y’all.
I really enjoy this author’s voice. First, I’m so glad we get at least three books with this couple, yet it’s not the normal ‘end on a cliffhanger’ deal. By the end of book one, these two are basically in love. It’s now just the merging of their lives and making sure they don’t make the same mistakes they made when they were younger. Wyatt is a colder, dominant alpha and what makes him work so well for me is Tatiana. She loves to submit to him, but she also loves to tease him and I adore that about her. She is tough and doesn’t let Wyatt get away with a lot of things. She also embraces her sexuality and loves to explore and play naughty games with him. I thinks she is a well done heroine.
This is an erotic contemporary, and this author can write the dirty dirty. In a limo, in the hallway of the hotel, or just in the bedroom, the romance scenes in this one are hot.
I think I liked this book even more than book one and I can’t wait for Bet Me, book three.
