Dare To Love review
In her newest sexy and emotional contemporary romance series, New York Times Bestselling Author Carly Phillips introduces you to the Dare family… siblings shaped by a father’s secrets and betrayal.
Since finding out his father had another family on the side, Ian Dare swore to be the upstanding, responsible man his cheating parent had never been. But after one glimpse of sensual Riley Taylor, with her feminine curves and beguiling eyes and Ian is entranced. He will do anything to possess her ... but does that include extending an olive branch to the half-brother who is a constant reminder of pain he’d rather forget?
Independent and always in control, Riley Taylor makes no apologies for choosing men carefully. Relationships have never been a priority, and she believes herself hardened to domineering men - until she meets charismatic Ian Dare. He manages to turn a simple kiss into an all out assault on her senses. Their affair heats up and they soon realize they complete each other in ways neither ever imagined. But Riley’s family includes a man Ian would rather live without ...
Ian is a strong man with a guarded heart and plenty of sex appeal. His loving side takes some time to be revealed however. Riley has integrity and is an admirable character. Her stubborn streak is both an asset and an flaw. Like a magnetic force together they entice the reader. Although Ian lacks warmth, as his history is slowly revealed one's sympathy is gained and the further invested into the story one becomes. Riley's story becomes intense and steers into a direction of suspense. Hot provocative scenes that indulge the senses. A stimulating start to the series.
