Brash social worker
Olivia has been through her own personal hell and come out the other side,
tattered but determined to make things better in her corrupt town—no matter the
cost. Her roommate’s current situation is the perfect place to start.
When ex-con Cliff’s
wild ol’ lady Olivia comes to him and the River Reapers for help, he’s on
board. His vigilante motorcycle club can get the job done, and it’ll help
convince Olivia to take the next step in their relationship.
But when Olivia’s
traumatic past walks through the club’s doors, there’s no stopping her from
doing whatever it takes to settle her own score. Even if it means crossing a
line that Cliff might not be able to pull her back from.
If you like dark romances with vengeance, heat, and a
hero who makes you swoon, you’ll love 
A Risky Prospect, Book 2 in

So this picks up where book one leaves off. Yes it is an MC book and as the author stated this book does deal with some sensitive subjects. If you do not like dark elements and are hoping for an Insta anything book then this book is not for you.

Olivia grows so much in this book. We get the full effect of what she has gone through, and why she pushed Cliff away. She is a strong, stubborn, independent woman that really dislikes leaning on a man. Cliff has come full circle in the fact he knows what he wants, but has to be extremely patient to get it.

Now with all of that being said there are a few things that did not sit to well with me. I didn’t understand how things went down with her father, or how things were dealt with with her ex.

the doorbell for Olivia’s place, I step back. Only the porch light is on. No
light shines from inside. I can’t imagine she and her roommate are already in
bed. I raise my fist and knock, a soft three-tap, just in case.
From the
other side, I hear a soft meow: Dio.
buddy.” He meows again. I picture him rubbing his cheek against the door.
“I guess no one else is home. I’ll see you later.”
Turning, I chuckle.
Olivia’s got me talking to her cat now.
She’s got
me doing all kinds of things—like picking up her father. I wanted to see her
before I left, even if only to wish her luck for her first day at DCF. Maybe
see if there’s anything I should know before meeting him, or if there’s
anything she wants me to scope out before she meets him.
She isn’t
home, though, so there’s not much I can do, other than go back to the club
house and try to get some sleep.
I walk
slowly back to the Screamin’ Eagle. The last thing I want to do right now is go
to bed, mostly because I don’t want to get up at the ass crack of dawn to drive
all the way to Lewisburg. Traveling by train would take longer, and neither my
President or Treasurer were willing to pony up for a plane ticket. Worst of
all, I have to take a cage. It’ll be more comfortable than riding all the way
down, but the more I ride, the less I want to be in a car.
I swing
onto the bike and grab my helmet. Securing it in place, my fingers pause.
Olivia might be working tonight. That would explain why she isn’t home. There’s
also a chance she’s at my cousin’s, but I’d rather not ride all over town
trying to track her down. If she’s already at the club, I might be able to talk
her into staying the night. That way she can crash in my room after work, and I
can see her before I go. Maybe even see her naked.
Two birds,
one stone.
With that
happy thought, I fire up the Screamin’ Eagle, wincing a little as I imagine
poor Dio hiding from the noise. Ever since Eli, he’s been so skittish. If
Olivia hadn’t already killed him, I’d kill the motherfucker myself. Who the
hell tries to kill a tiny, defenseless kitten?
I wish
she’d told me what was going on before it got that bad.
Olivia for you. She can take care of herself, which is one of the things I love
most about her.
I nearly
stomp on the back brake.
I love her.
It’s a
whole-body realization. The road tips upward, the bike falls down into the sky.
I float for a moment, fingers and toes tingling. Then I slam back into my seat,
the bike firmly on 63. Somehow I still have my balance.
I have to
tell her. I’ve never been good at keeping my feelings to myself. My father’s
headstone is proof of that. It’s either tell her, or walk away, and I already
know I can’t do that.
I can’t
tell her, either.
She shut me
out when I suggested we move in together. I can only imagine what she’ll do if
I tell her I love her.
I love her.
The more I
repeat it, the more woozy my stomach is, like I’ve had a few drinks and I’m
warmed all the way through. At the same time, it makes me 
need a
There’s a
good chance I don’t 
really love her.
I have no
idea what it feels like to be in love. I know what it’s like to love someone—my
little cousin. I know what it means to be loved—my cousin again. But the odds
that I wholly, truly love the first woman I laid eyes on after getting out—not
to mention fucked in the back of a station wagon—are slim to none.
I’ve been
lonely for so long, I’m just imprinting on her.
That’s got
to be it. Because there’s no way someone like me can really love her, not now.
What I think I feel for Olivia can’t be real.
Not after
twenty years of crushing in noses with my fists. I don’t deserve it.
She doesn’t
deserve me.
