Austin Prescott is an ex-football player and he's currently an agent who is looking for a new administrative assistant. He's due to have surgery to donate a kidney to a family member and he needs someone in place before that happens. Little does he know that when Quinn arrives for the job interview, she's going to not only be able to handle his clients, but him as well! Oh and let's not forget that he's attracted to her the first time he lays eyes on her.
Quinnlyn Stone has come to the interview prepared and she makes a great first impression on Austin. She wants to forge her own path after so many years of her family taking her for granted and not giving her wants and needs any thought. She's willing to stand up to Austin, which lets him know she'll handle the athletes just fine. The interesting thing here is the attraction is mutual and after a moment of weakness, Quinn and Austin give in and find themselves locked in a kiss.
Fast-forward a year, the kiss well in the rear-view mirror, Austin calls Quinn in a panic when he arrives home and finds a package on his doorstep in the form of a baby! There is a note that says she is his, but that's it. Quinn jumps in to help and it's clear that her years of taking care of her siblings and cousins is coming in handy because she knows all the ins and outs that Austin needs to care for Jenny. As the two work together to care for the little girl while they await the results of the paternity test, it becomes clear that the attraction from the year before has not dimmed. Will these two be able to make a go of it? Or will the things that Quinn believes she wants out of her life force her to walk away from not only Austin, but Jenny too?
There was so much to love about this book. I enjoyed how much of a fish out of water Austin was when Jenny arrived and how he wasn't afraid to admit it. I also liked how it was a slow realization for Quinn that what she thought she always wanted didn't have to be her final path. This was a great start to this series and I am very much looking forward to the next one in the series!
I really love all the Dare series. The Prescott children join the Dare family when they find out their "Uncle Paul" was really a sperm donor for all the kids. Paul needs a kidney transplant and Austin in a match. As Austin prepares for six weeks off work due to the surgery, he needs to hire an executive assistant who can hold her own with the pro athletes he works with as an agent and hold the business together in his absence.
Quinnlyn (Quinn) Stone interviews and is an immediate fit. She is smart, beautiful, knowledgeable about sports from her big sports loving family and not intimidated by the athletes or Austin. They also share a sizzling chemistry that does not belong in the office with them. She and Austin share a kiss when she brings some things by his house post surgery but they agree it wasn't appropriate and won't happen again.
Fast forward a year. The kiss is seared in both their minds, but never discussed. Yup, all professional here, nothing else to see! One night Austin finds a baby girl in her carrier in his porch with a note saying her name is Jenny and she is his. Austin has no experience with babies and panics. Until he can determine the truth of his paternity, he would rather his family doesn't know. So he calls Quinn. She agrees to help him until he can land on his feet and figure things out. She helped raise her own siblings and a bunch of cousins, so she is a natural with Jenny. She slowly teaches Austin what he needs to know about baby care and feeding. He is so appealing as he tries so hard with Jenny. Pretty soon, living under the same roof has their sexual tension back and, over time, they give in to it bit by bit. The problem? Quinn raised enough babies and doesn't want any of her own. She also sees Austin as a playboy who never stays with any woman. Can they find their way to each other and take care of precious Jenny until they get paternity results and the PI finds her biological mother? Great start by Carly Phillips to this new Dare family branch.

I liked Austin and Quinnlyn together. They were what each of them needed but never fully admitted, not helped by the fact that he was her boss and the dynamic that could change should things between them not work out concerned her and held him back.
That Austin’s first port of call on discovering the baby at his door was Quinn spoke of his trust and belief in her to have his back. Quinn’s willingness to help him, attraction aside, spoke of her caring nature and though I understood her thoughts on her future life after reading about how she grew up, it was obvious to see she was a natural when it came to the baby. Her determination that Austin would deal with bottles, nappy changes and other baby issues and his reaction to everything baby related made for some funny moments and I liked that she didn’t let him shirk his responsibilities - she was the difference to how he changed as a potential father.
A really good start to the Dare Nation series and I’m looking forward to seeing how Austin’s brother Damon deals with his female nemesis in Dare to Tempt.
4.5* and a recommended read.
The emotions that the characters go through can be felt, some of them actually pulled on my heart strings. I did find myself getting frustrated a time or two and I really wanted to smack a few of the characters, but they redeemed themselves by the end of the book. I went through most of the emotions along with the characters, I might of cried a little bit more than the characters. It doesn't matter how many times I read this book I cried at the same places each and every time.
There are surprises throughout the book, some are large, while others are small. Some you may see coming while others you won't, but each and every single one of them is equally as important with in the story as the next. They all play there own part in making the story the fantastic read that it is.
There isn't a single part of this book that I didn't enjoy, I wish I could give it more than five stars as I think it s worth so many more stars.
I highly recommend this book.
This book is also available on audible and it is awesome.
