I had a hard time with this story. I didn't really connect with Lucy and Max as a couple. And I didn't really like Lucy by herself. I thought there was WAY to much insecurities between what was supposed to be two "alpha" personalities.

Max has always had a thing for Lucy but decided to marry someone he KNEW that he couldn't love the way she wanted. Lucy doesn't let people get close because of the death of her parents when she was a teenager. But when Max got engaged she moved to L.A. so she didn't have to see him (with his wife) anymore... blahhhhh

I thought this book felt rushed. Granted it was a novella, but you can tell that it was one. There was gaps in time that nothing really happened.

I love the Dare family series and have been eagerly waiting for a Max and Lucy's story. This is a bit of a friends to lovers story since Max and Lucy have know each other since their youth. They have also secretly (for Max) and not so secretly (for Lucy) been in love with each other for almost as long. Sadly, tragedy in their respective lives pulled them apart and Lucy's desire to distance herself from love, even the love of her siblings, drives her from NY to CA. But a wedding and a new restaurant brings Lucy back to New York and back into Max's life. And Max is ready to fight for the heart of the woman he has always loved and will blow through every single one of her defenses in the process.

Dare to Seduce definitely contained Phillips' usual hotness quotient for this series, and I enjoyed seeing the couple heal each other through their love for one another. I especially enjoyed how Lucy encouraged Max to repair the rift between his parents and himself. She was there for him even when "there" put her in close proximity to the life she had with her parents before their deaths.

Although I enjoyed the story, it is not among my top favorites of the series. Even though Lucy embraced and acknowledged her love for Max when he was injured I didn't feel a deep emotional connection between the couple as I felt for the other Dare couples. Lucy and Max's story missed that spark for me. I liked their love story but I didn't love it and was hoping for a bit ... more.

That said, the Dare series is still one of my favorite family saga series and I cannot wait to see who's up next for this very eclectic family.

Format: Paperback
3.75 stars---DARE TO SEDUCE is the eight installment and latest novella in Carly Phillips contemporary adult DARE TO LOVE erotic romance series focusing on the Dare cousins and siblings. This is Lucy Dare –one of the New York Dare cousins, and professional chef and restaurateur Max Savage’s storyline. DARE TO SEDUCE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. We were first introduced to the Dare cousins in Dare To Surrender (Dare to Love #3)-the July 2014 installment in the multi-authored 1001 Dark Nights novella series- and Dare to Submit (Dare to Love #4).

Told from dual third person perspectives (Lucy and Max) DARE TO SEDUCE is a friends to lovers/second chance storyline that focuses on the building relationship between Lucy and Max. Max has always loved Lucy, but growing up neighbors and best friends with Lucy’s brothers there was always an understood hands-off policy between Lucy and Max. But years passed, lives changed, losses and other relationships carried forward until present day where Lucy and Max found themselves together at Decklan Dare’s engagement party to Amanda Collins (Dare to Love #4), wherein Lucy’s current boyfriend found himself on the outside looking in when Max and Lucy rekindled their long fought urges and need for one another. What ensues is the building relationship between Lucy and Max, and Lucy’s need to push Max away at every available opportunity.

DARE TO SEDUCE is an erotic storyline; a tale about two people who have loved one another but never took a chance on a happily ever after. Lucy had already lost too many people in her life, and wasn’t willing to risk her heart for fear of losing the only man she has ever loved.

Max and Lucy will really have you turning those pages to find out what happens. Lucy has totally closed off her heart. She has been in love with Max since they were next door neighbors and she was a kid. When he went and got married he broke her heart. She wouldn't even go to their wedding. He never knew the feelings she had for him. To protect her heart from any kind of hurt she moved clear across the country. She was fine until she came home with her boyfriend for her brothers wedding. There she encountered Max and her life was changed.

Max was best friends with both of Lucy's brothers. He lived next door to them growing up and Lucy was always their bratty little sister. Then she came home from college and he realized she wasn't so little any more and he developed feelings for her. But he knew about that unspoken code of never dating your best friends sister. That made her off limits. So he pushed on never revealing his feelings for her to anyone. During their time apart his wife had passed away and he lived life one day at a time....never getting serious with anyone. Then he saw Lucy at her brothers wedding and his life was changed.

Dare to Seduce tells us the tale of their mostly rocky road to happiness. Here we have two people who love each other but have walls so high and so thick around their hearts it will really take time and work to break them down. Only Carly Phillips can tell their story as well as she has. She can make you feel all the pain and frustration they are going through and then make you cheer when things work out.

Never hesitate to read a book by Carly Phillips as she will definitely keep you turning those pages until you reach their happily ever after.
