Written and marketed as a Valentine’s Day bauble, Dare Me succeeds because of the nice way author Debra Druzy has blended the sweet and the sexy. A wedding photographer still pining for his grade-school crush — a Barbara Eden type in a real love drought — loads of charm and a few fun steamy scenes are ingredients that help make this a delicious treat sprinkled with powdered sugar. A bit too much of should-we-shouldn’t-we all through the steamier scenes was a bit annoying to me, but I suspect most female readers will enjoy that aspect too. Dare Me leaves you wanting more, and hoping they’ll be more for the very sweet and sexy — almost adorable — Misty Morningside, and Adam. I found myself smiling through much of this short read, which is something you aren’t prepared for when reading something in this vein.
The author’s ability to create a very likable heroine and infuse charm into her romantic/heat stories is growing, and I found this to be accomplished and enjoyable. For the most part, I loved it, and heartily recommend it to those who enjoy this sort of sub-genre of romantic fiction. If this were a short film, I’d give it a very soft R rating, because the more naughty scenes are fun and well-done. Because Dare Me delivers, doing exactly what it’s supposed to by being an enjoyable piece of romantic fluff, I’m rounding up from four and a half stars to five on this one. Being a short read, this might be nice to gift to someone who does during the upcoming holiday season. If she’s as sweet as Misty, she might thank you for finding it in her stocking.
This is a sexy, fun, lighthearted romance. I found myself laughing aloud at many of the double entendres. I liked how Adam in particular made his intentions clear right from the start – that he felt he’d let Misty slip away in high school and had no intention of doing the same thing this time around. Misty, in contrast, seemed to doubt herself a lot and that was a little disappointing to me. While I loved her raunchy, sexy thoughts, she didn’t initially have the self-confidence to either speak the thoughts aloud, nor take the initiative in their physical relationship. This is a change from many of the more modern romance heroines – who usually know exactly what they want and own their sexuality. I felt this made Misty come across as both more realistic but also not as strong as I usually enjoy characters to be.
The sex scene is deliciously descriptive and quite intense. I was grateful we’d been given a good and – to my mind at least – clear understanding of Adam’s character. His intentions were good and he truly loved Misty. Without this knowledge some of his actions might have seemed slightly over the top – but I think after all the champagne Misty drank and Adam’s deep love of all things photography his actions balance out for the better. While there’s plenty of naughty thoughts flying around and some seriously steamy sex, the romance and emotional connection between Adam and Misty seemed real and solid to me.
I found this to be an enjoyable, fun and sexy Valentine’s Day story, one that was lovely to read. I’ll happily read more books by this author.

Misty attends the annual wedding showcase to represent her family bridal shop, not realizing the photographer is Adam Wright, the boy who secretly starred in all her high school fantasies. She also has no idea he's been carrying a picture of her in his wallet from kindergarten until now. One thing leads to another and they both end up confessing this mutual crush, and deciding to do something about it.
I enjoyed most of this story, and the author does a wonderful job of drawing out the sexual tension. However, the whole photography aspect made me more than a little uncomfortable, especially when Adam is filming Misty without her knowledge. He seemed a little too premeditated about the whole thing, which took away from my enjoyment of this otherwise fast paced and fun tale of finally getting the guy of your fantasies right where you want him. I can only give it 4 candy hearts because of that, but other people might enjoy that aspect of this steamy story.
I received an ARC of this novella in exchange for my honest review.
