Our story features Chapple Palmer, the captain of the London Lions football team. Of course their football is our soccer. He is enlisted by the Lions to “babysit” American billionaire and football team owner, Ian Dare and his wife while they visit London on a charitable venture with the Lions. He his hosting job also includes the Dare's personal assistant Elisha Shepard.
Elisha and Chapple experience instant (and hot) attraction and act on it. Up until this point, Chapple has been a genuinely nice guy. I would say he has even been sweet. For some reason, sex with Elisha really unleashes some sort of past demons and he acts like a huge jerk during and after their liaison. Luckily, he realizes he really messed up and lost the opportunity with someone he might have a real future with. Chapple works to win Elisha back and regain her trust but both know their time together in London is short as Elisha will return to the states with the Dares.
I liked both Chapple and Elisha although I felt like Elisha forgave Chapple a little too quickly. He really treated her poorly, so I was surprised she was willing to give him another chance so soon. Maybe this is a flaw with the novella? There is not enough page space for an extended forgiveness. Luckily, this was not a story killer. It might not have been realistic but it was not absurd.
While London With a Dare’s plot is not particularly unique, the writing was excellent, the chemistry was believable and it was an all around enjoyable read. It is sweet and sexy and helped change my view (a little) of the novella.

But during and after his and Elisha's first intimate encounter, he does a 180 and turns into someone Elisha has no desire to ever see again. His demons are something to be worked on, if he ever wants Elisha back in his life.
While short since this is a novella, London With a Dare is fully realized and developed, which is not always the case with novellas. I never felt as if it was rushed or if parts were missing or underdeveloped. It's well written, with really sexy moments, a strong connection between the 2 leads, and a great addition to the Dare series.
I received this galley from NetGalley.

This was a nice short read centring around Elisha and Chapple.
In the beginning, i have to admit I didn't like Chapple. He came across quite down to earth with Elisha then suddenly, his demeanour changes. His behaviour towards Elisha was horrendous and inexcusable. Despite his bad behaviour, Elisha gives him another chance - she has a bigger heart then most women would if faced with similar circumstances.
They have great chemistry, and the teasing and flirting definitely sizzles things up.
Great read, and I really enjoyed it.
At the beginning of this book I hated Chapple. I thought he was a jerk and couldn't be redeemed. I was wrong. After getting Chapple's backstory you realize why he acted the way he did. He makes it up to Elisha and I think loving her makes him a better man. I would recommend this book.
