Production line romantic suspense
Dare You to Run: An Unbroken Heroes Novel - Dawn Ryder

A lot of tell, no show. Insta-lust/attraction between our leads, with a first kiss off-screen. The time jumping was a bit off and made it kind of a stop and go feel. It's like the author knew where she wanted the story to go but didn't take the time to connect the dots. The second half became just a sex-fest between leads. 
Pretty interesting suspense arc (continued from book 1) with shady, powerful, and working towards the greater good people. 
Heroine was ok with wanting to control, and taking steps to, her own life but she was put into kidnapping situation after kidnapping situation so felt like just a token to show off hero's soldier skills. 
Hero was bit of a blank slate just growling with intimidating stares that also had burning eyes. 
The editing and lack of fluid story connection made this pretty shallow and surface. Gives you the military hero and needs rescuing heroine tropes but no depth to them.

Dare You to Run
Dare You to Run - Dawn Ryder Dare You to Run - Dawn Ryder This is the second book of the Unbroken Heroes, and man, if Romeo and Juliette were to plotted in modern times, this is one good setting.

The intensity of the story was too much, that I find myself crying several times. I love the the way the lines of both main and secondary characters were said. Those rare funny moments between sibling and team mates. The way the action was written, the thought of the antagonist, they were so good.

Cannot wait to read Saxon's book. I would love to see him eat his own words. I wonder, what will Kagan, Thais, Vitus, and Bram will say once the mighty have fallen...

Unbroken Heroes features a black ops team that operates between black and white. For them there is only a shade of gray. However, when this group of people fall, they will stay and hell be damned.

Dare You to Run: An Unbroken Heroes Novel - Dawn Ryder

Damascus felt the cold bone deep, he had been kidnapped and was put into a concrete hold. Damascus knew she had to be stronger than her circumstance if she wanted to survive. Vitus Hale thought Damascus was a pitiful mess but then again she was a Washington debutante who had slipped away from her escort and got herself kidnapped. Vitus was used to the shadows that is where Vitus spent most of his time. Vitus had been a Navy Seal. Vitus was attracted to Damascus. Vitus gave Damascus a choice - take her back to her father right away or keep her out of sight and see if the ex seals can catch the people who took her. Damascus wanted to wait and see if the ex Seals could catch her kidnappers. One week later Vitus wanted Damascus as much as she wanted him but Vitus had to remind Damascus he wasn’t the type of man Jeb had picked out for Damascus. Damascus realized she moved through her life half asleep. But right now Damascus was who she really was and she wanted to get to know who she was with Vitus. Vitus proposes to Damascus and they become engaged. But when Damascus gets back to the states she breaks the engagement and cuts all communication off with Vitus. Tyler Martin wants to marry Damascus . Jeb Ryland’s - Damascus’s father- has involvement behind the scenes especially when Raven and his men come into play. Also Presidential hopeful Carl Davis wants to bring down the Hale brothers. Jeb was power hungry and a control freak. Jeb threatened that Vitus won’t make it through his next mission enless Damascus breaks all ties and communications with Vitus. So Damascus calls off everything without a reason. Vitus’s Navy seal team is double crossed by people who had tried to kill them. Damascus and Vitus meet again three years later when she is to give Vitus a medal for rescuing her. Vitus as well as  Damascus have a mission but they both still want and love each other.

I had mixed feelings on this story. I liked some things about the story and didn’t care for others.. I definitely didn’t like the names Vitus and Damascus. The plot was good just too much going on. Also a little too much sex in the story yet we are told of the first kiss but not shown. It would have been easier to read the first story for background reasons. Vitus had been a Navy Seal why didn’t Damascus let him do his thing instead of just walking away. Vitus's team would have been with him and had his back.But I did like how the feelings were still there for Damascus and Vitus. All and all not a bad story just not one of my favorites.

Dare to Love Series: Do You Dare (Kindle Worlds Novella)
Dare to Love Series: Do You Dare (Kindle... Dare to Love Series: Do You Dare (Kindle Worlds Novella) - Chris Keniston A masquerade that spirals out of control could end up costing a man who has it all, something more vital than possessions. I love Ms. Keniston's brand of narrative. Her surroundings are descriptive, her characters are written from the heart and her stories are full of scenarios that are enlightening but sweet. Never would I have pictured Chirs Keniston writing a story for Carly Phillips's seductive Dare to Love line but she surprised me and held her own creating a story that is as tempting as the beautiful backgrounds she used for the plot. Do You Dare is a story about discovering life's surprises and what is truly important. It reads like a fairy tale.

Dare You To (Pushing the Limits, #2) - Katie McGarry

Another one I just can't deal with at present. I absolutely hate Ryan. I love Beth, but I can't stand Ryan. He's an egomaniac. Now, I do feel bad about his homelife. But him and his buddies are just horrible. So I'm over it.
