#Review #Giveaway Nothing Ventured by @kristen_luciani @InkSlingerPR

 Nothing Ventured Synopsis:
 Mia Bradshaw realized long ago that falling in love is a harbinger of pain. As a single mom working for one of the most prestigious venture capital firms in the country, she doesn’t have time for serious emotional entanglements. Her sort-of–friend boy is dependable, respectful and…okay, fine, maybe a little lukewarm but whatever! Who ever said there was anything wrong with being…vanilla? It’s safe, low-risk and not fraught with conflict and heart wrenching disappointment.

Chris Camden is one of the most eligible bachelors in northern California. A successful entrepreneur with a hot car and a panty-dropping grin doesn’t need to do much to keep his bed warm at night. His smoldering hazel-eyed gaze makes women melt at his feet. No strings, no conditions, no questions - just the way he likes it. Why should he settle for just one when there are so many sizzling alternatives begging for a spin?

A coveted opportunity to partner with Chris’s company stirs up emotions that threaten everything Mia’s been so careful to protect and control. The guy with more lines than a crowded supermarket before a snowstorm can singe her insides with the slightest accidental touch, proof that she needs to steer clear.

But reality hurls a very unexpected curve ball that can change Mia’s life in a heartbeat. And sometimes…the perception of safety is relative.

Review - 4.5 Stars
If you haven't read anything by this author you are missing out.  Her debut book Unlikely Venture was fantastic and I fell in love with James and Jessica.  Nothing Ventured did not disappoint either.  I loved it!  You meet Chris in the first book and was super excited to see this was about him.

Mia I loved her.  She was such a beautiful and smart woman.  She has had an uphill battle for a few years. She has been burned by men and her focus is not on a relationship.  It’s on her child and her career.  If a man happens, it happens.  She does whatever she can to provide the best life for her daughter Chloe.

Chris Camden...Chris Camden...is the young and rich playboy.  However, he does have a good head on his shoulders.  He's smart and he has a great family.  He's protective over his sister, nieces and dad.  He has had to step up to be a father figure to his nieces, but that will all it will be.  He is the man that will never settled down, that is until he's zapped by Mia Bradshaw.  He is drawn to her and is thinking and feeling things he's never ever wanted.

Alex is scummy.  I got a weird vibe from him and I think he was way to pushy for Mia.  Something just felt off about him and when the story starts to unfold you will not like him either.

The instant attraction between Mia and Chris is fantastic.  I was drawn to both of them and wanted them to get a HEA.  They are both so driven and loving...a perfect match.  The secondary characters are great in this book.  It was nice to see James/Jess again.  Even Paul was a nice surprise.  Chris's sister I would like to see her get a book, there is a story there.  She deserves a HEA….

Kristen is such a wonderful storyteller.  You can't help but get sucked into the drama of her characters.  You will be cheering for these characters.  Both books are fantastic reads and I recommend both!  I can't wait to see what Kristen does next.  Definitely an author to watch!!  4.5 Stars!!
