Get to know the Characters

This was a good book to get acquainted with the characters. I am curious to know what will happen next. You definitely want to get the series all together before you start. “Risky Gamble, Risky Pleasures, and Risky Love” are the books in the series. Narration was great. I recommend this book.

Part 1

This is part 1 of a 3 part series that revolves around Colton Caswell and his sex club. When he hires Ali he is determined to have her for himself. Little does he know Ali is a writer and is researching a story but will the good girl get drawn in to all the allure of what goes on in the club and how Colton can make her feel.

This ends in a cliffhanger.
I received a code to listen and review. I will give it a 3 rating.

Great book but....

I fund this audiobook was very good but I couldn’t get bay the narrater, he couldn’t make the female voice, so it made it very difficult to distinguish the main character. And made the story confusing

Game of pursuit

Risky Gamble is the start of a cat and mouse game, the cat being Colton Kaswell, the owner of several lucrative businesses one being a sex club and he is pursuing the mouse Allison Hart. Allison is an intern at a paper, she is on another course, get the story of Colton Kaswell and the dirt on his club. This high stakes game of cat and mouse ends however with the mouse getting away, but I’m sure the chase will continue in book 2 Risky Pleasure.
Randy Falcon as always knows how to keep your interest in his narration.

Ally is a reporter that is looking for the big story, then the big story walk into her life to buy flowers and his name is Colton Kaswell. Colton falls hard and Ally dose to but there so much jealousy and insecurity between them, it makes it hard to get out of their own way. This was wonderfully read by Rodney Falcon and he did great as always.

intense

So who is the Gorgeously, well dressed, handsome mystery man , that just walked into the floral shop?. Why was he interested in Ally? Ally reminds Colton of his fiance that passed away. He is so intrigued by her. He needs her. He wants her. Ally is an intern at a newspaper. She decides to know him better, get a job at his underground sex club, research and write an article for the newspaper. But at what cost? Vivian Ward wrote a story of two complex intense characters that are sexually attracted to each other. Can't wait for book 2. Rodney Falcon's narration is flawless and
brings the story to life! I was gifted the audio and offered my honest review.

Wow!

Risky Gamble is an excellent book that capture’s your attention. Colton is the owner of an “underground” sex club, who also happens to be a sadist. Ally is an innocent young woman who captures his attention. What secrets are they hiding? Will their needs be met?

Rodney Falcon does a fantastic job as always!

Good story 💜

This was a good story but for me, I felt some of the story was a bit redundant. This story has great potential and perhaps if it were a full length novel and not a novella it would have more room to expand on the story.
I love Rodney Falcon’s voice, and he was ok, but this wasn’t my favorite narrations of his.

Risky Business

Colton and Ally have some chemistry! I found myself listening to the story late into the night just so I could find out more. Story ends in a cliffhanger and I can't wait to listen to the next book. Rodney Falcon does a great job of distinguishing characters in the book and gives them dimension.

A great start to an intense relationship

Colton is a billionaire and wanted by every single woman. He is sadistic and it will take a very strong girl to satisfy his needs. In walks Ally, and sparks start to fly. I liked the slow build up to their relationship. It was a refreshing change from those who fall fast and so intensely. Ally is a determined girl, looking to get her dream job. She will stop at nothing for a story. Colton will stop at nothing to have her. I enjoyed the intense chemistry these two shared. There are some steamy scene. The cliffhanger will have you reaching for the next book immediately.

Rodney Falcon did a great job narrating this story. He has an easy to listen to voice. Mr. Falcon was able to narrate the many emotions and attitudes of the characters well. I enjoyed the narration and look forward to more.

Great

At 1st it took me a while to get into this book. it was hard for me to tell which character point of view was in each chapter if I had stopped in the middle of one. I would have to go back to the beginning of the chapter to listen for the name. But the storyline kept me wanting to listen more. Onto book 2.

A hot and sexy listen!

Risky Gamble is the first book in this series and we are introduced to Colton and Ally. They are drawn to each other and have this instant chemistry that is hot and sexy and makes for an interesting story. But this author throws us a twist that we have to wait until the next book to find out! The narrator did a great job conveying all of the characters!
