So, will you join #TeamJoaquin or #TeamGrayson? Make the informed choice: Check out RAW, the first in the series, and REWARDED, where Anna’s decision will be revealed, in February 2014.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION’s Vivacious Valkyrie – Marta:
*eARC received from the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

The is the second instalment in the "Torn Between Two Lovers " trilogy and follows immediately on from "Raw". It's an interesting concept as the author intends to open up her Facebook page to allow readers to vote and therefore determine the outcome of the trilogy.

Anna Claire felt betrayed by Grayson Sloan, FBI agent at the end of Raw. He had been working undercover at her Manhattan restaurant in a bid to take down a drug ring. Feeling badly used and deceived by him Anna has fled to Aruba to lick her wounds. Nursing her broken heart she is determined to just try and forget about men!

Anna's life is about get more complicated as she has been followed by Joaquin Delacruz, a man who her ex Gray is determined to bring to justice. Joaquin is everything Anna wants in a man except for his families shady past. His family's fortune is built on a bed of crime and although he's trying hard to go legit his enemies fear what he might reveal about them.

Anna is impressed by Joaquin's honesty with her and finds herself falling for his charm. What starts out as a lighthearted affair soon hurtles both Anna and Joaquin into a passionate relationship that can only result in heartbreak and danger!

I found this a very interesting read as I wasn't quite sure how the author could make such a quick change of heart for Anna believable. In the first book she's madly in love with Gray and yet shortly after she's falling for the admittedly gorgeous Joaquin! I think I am convinced but that's only because I thought Anna was quite a shallow character and truthfully didn't really like her as much as I wanted to. Although to be fair to be a winner in business she would have to be completely selfish and dedicated.

So how will it all end and just who will Anna end up with? If honest I have my own idea of what could happen but it's fun to think that the readers get to choose. Third book in this trilogy is Reward and all that's left to say is - are you team Grayson or Team Joaquin?
