***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
New York Times Bestselling Author Carly Phillips turns up the heat in her newest sexy contemporary romance series, and introduces you to the Dare family… siblings shaped by a father’s secrets and betrayal.
Since finding out his father had another family on the side, Ian Dare swore to be the upstanding, responsible man his cheating parent had never been. When it comes to his relatives, he gives his all but in relationships he offers the bare minimum. But one glimpse of sensual Riley Taylor arouses his dominant and protective instincts and Ian is entranced. He will do anything to possess her … and does. But any future with Riley must include him extending an olive branch to the half-brother who is a constant reminder of the pain he’d rather forget.
Independent and always in control, Riley Taylor makes no apologies for choosing men carefully. Relationships have never been a priority and she believes herself hardened to domineering men – until she meets charismatic Ian Dare. He manages to turn a simple kiss into an all out assault on her senses and when he takes control in the bedroom, she’s stunned to discover she likes it. As their affair heats up, they soon realize they complete each other in ways neither imagined. But Riley’s past is closer than she cares to remember, and her struggles with Ian’s dominance might just cost her everything.
Dare to Love is a solid start to Carly Phillips new Dare series. The story starts out with us meeting Ian Dare, the oldest child of the Dare family. Ian is a very untrusting angry man due to the fact that his father abandoned their family and started another family at the same time. Ian’s anger leads him to not have a relationship with his other siblings.
Ian meets the heroine of the story, Riley through his half brother Alex. Riley is Alex’s best friend, therefore according to Ian, off limits. I enjoyed the characters in this book. Ian is controlling but willing to work to get what he wants. He is proud but willing to back down when it’s necessary. Riley is very independent and has trouble accepting help when she needs it. I rated the book 4 stars instead of 5 stars because I thought Ian was a bit too controlling and that turned me off. The book was still very good and kept my interest. I recommend reading it!
