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.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is the second book in the series though it can be read without having read the 1st one. Mia Bradshaw has one focus, her 9 year old daughter. Her job is very demanding and requires a lot of her time. She wants a relationship but since the death of her fiancée 10 years ago, no one meets the mar until she meets him.. Chris Camden is a player. He doesn't believe in "the one" until he meets her and now no other woman holds his interest. The biggest problem is she works for his company's newest investor. The story captured my attention right away and the flow was perfect I loved the characters. There are a few appearances from the characters of Unlikely Venture in the story. I can't wait to see what is next in this series.
This book could have easily been a book hangover for me but I've been exhausted lately so even though I was willing to miss out out sleep, my body wouldn't let me. From the beginning you see follow Chris and Mia through their lives and how they tie together. I highly recommend this book and I want to know..... Where is my Chris? This book can be read as a standalone but I recommend you read Unlikely Venture first.
My Thoughts: When I first picked this book up, it didn't take long for me to start rooting for Mia and Chris. They're fighting an attraction thanks to their work connection, not to mention Mia has a boyfriend. But it's there, and as unattainable as it seems, they are curious. After Mia's boyfriend proves himself to be a complete jerk, Chris wants to make sure she's okay. Their friendship turns into something more, but there's danger for both of them if they're not careful. Will they be able to come out on the other side unscathed? Nothing Ventured is a spectacular mix of romance and unexpected suspense. I loved how the story didn't just turn out perfect right away. There were twists and turns and surprising moments (like the incident on the basketball court) and it really added to the story. This is the second book Kristen Luciani's Venture series and I can't wait to get to the first book, Unlikely Venture. My Rating: Very Good
I have agree with another reviewer, this book is HOT. And who doesn't love a story about two people coming together who are complete opposites? You've got a single mom that wants to do what's best for her family, even if that means working obsessively. Then, you've got a hot guy who wants to help Mia let her hair down, but doesn't want a commitment. Can the two ever find even ground?
