From the Author

Dear Readers:
The DARE TO LOVE books consist of Miami siblings/halfsiblings and NY cousins (hotter books) and the books ran in consecutiveorder. It makes more sense for the books to be divided by family and so I have split up the series as follows - The Dare to Love Series (Miamisiblings) and the NY Dares (NY cousins). Please note ALL BOOKS CAN BE READ ALONE but if you enjoy your stories in order, below is the newseries order. I hope you enjoy!

Dare to Love Series
1. Dare to Love
2. Dare to Desire
3. Dare to Touch
4. Dare to Hold
5. Dare to Rock
6. Dare to Take - coming soon!

NY Dares
1. Dare to Surrender
2. Dare to Submit
3. Dare to Seduce

All the best,

In Dare to Love by Carly Phillips, Ian Dare is a man who lets his head, not his heart, rule his life. He may seem controlling to some--well, everyone--but he loves his family with his entire being and will stop at nothing to protect them. Ian decides to live life his own way, not full of lies like his father did, even if that means he never puts his heart out there for a woman. But then he spots curvy Riley Taylor on the arm of his half-brother Alex and he knows he's in trouble.

'Something about this woman called to his deepest protective instincts. For all her bravado and independence, there was an innocence inside her that provided a counterbalance to his more jaded personality.'

Riley Taylor promised herself she would steer clear of pushy, controlling men after what she dealt with growing up. Why, then, when she meets Ian Dare, half-brother of her best friend Alex, does she find herself falling for his dominance? Especially in the bedroom. He breaks nearly every boundary Riley has set for herself yet somehow she finds herself changing for Ian and, more surprisingly, craving the bond growing between them.

'She'd sworn she'd never be that woman, the one who needed a man so desperately she'd accept anything and everything he dished out.'

Dare to Love is the first book in a new hot and steamy contemporary romance series by Carly Phillips, which she self-published. After reading about Ian and Riley, I think her fans will be uber excited with the result!

"I expect you to give yourself over to me completely in bed. To do as I say without hesitation or question." He raised her hand and pressed a hot, open-mouthed kiss to her palm. "I promise you won't be disappointed."

I fell instantly for the plotline and our protagonists as well.

Passionate and Angsty. At first glance, those are the perfect words to describe Dare to Love. But not only is Dare to Love passionate and deliciously angsty, it is also a really powerful story about two people who are bound by the past, and find the strength -together- to move forward. To be free of everything that has held them back.

Dare to Love is the story of Riley Taylor and Ian Dare. Riley's best friend is Ian's estranged half-brother, Alex, and when the two meet, it is an instant connection they share. I'm not talking insta-love, I'm saying insta-passion, the very kind that strikes you from across the room, and will not let go. Their initial obstacle is Alex, who's only known Ian to be a womanizer, and does not want that for his best friend. In order to win Riley over, Ian and Alex must make nice. Due to some very heavy issues, this will not be easy. These are the very issues that drive Ian's need for control, another obstacle for the couple. Due to her own past, Riley is not having a man who wants to dominate her every move, though in the bedroom is a whole other ballgame. So here we have two passionate and headstrong people who want to be together, but must work through their issues, let down their boundaries, and see if they can make a go of being a couple. Together. Strong.

It has been quite a while since I've read a Carly Phillips book, and I have to say, it has been way too long. Phillips is maybe the first contemporary romance author I read as an adult (Chandler Brothers!) , and I was immediately reminded of why I loved them so much. Dare to Love had such a nice, fast pace and I found myself breezing through the story in a matter of a couple hours. Not only did I get a steamy and fun story, but a thoughtful one as well.

This feels like: read a hundred romance novels, pull out bunches of good things, and arrange them into this book. I did not find interesting or intriguing characters. I wanted something different, special, or humorous, but I didn’t find it. But, I think many romance readers are less picky than I and will be happy reading it.

The guy is the rich dominating corporate guy who sees her, has to have her, gives her a great job, and buys her great things to wear. It’s kind of wishful thinking for females.

I was frustrated with the heroine’s STUPIDITY causing the big breakup.

There were seven sex scenes, some several pages long. I skimmed some of them. I was not emotionally pulled in. The author was using grandiose phrases, which meant the characters were having great sex, but I wasn’t. I did not feel anything. Some of the phrases were: he came harder than ever before, the best orgasm of her life, the biggest tidal wave of heat and sensation he’d ever experienced.

Immediately after reading this book, I read Valiant by L Dohnner. The first sex scene in that book was sooo hot, I was fanning my face going “whew.” It was really well done. I only mention it as a comparison, because I felt nothing like that in Dare to Love.

Narrative mode: 3rd person. Kindle count length: 2,801, 257 pages. Swearing language: strong words used, but not often. Sexual language: strong. Number of sex scenes: 7. Setting: current day mostly Florida. Copyright: 2013. Genre: contemporary romance, football.
