Dare To Resist (Dare Nation #1) - Carly Phillips

Austin is not just a former football player, he is a sports agent in his own right.  He is also a devoted family man despite the player reputation.  He cares enough to give a kidney - that shows how much his family means to him.

 

Quinn is excited to work for such a sports legend.  She knows she will learn much, and is actually shocked to be hired.  When the temptaion of her boss gets harder, she is not sure she can resist.  Until he needs her even more......

 

There are so many things I want to tell you about this story.  I am not a spoiler though, so here it is: read the book.  This was just really romance goodness from start to finish.  The attraction was strong with heat, that turned up rather quickly.  The main characters were passionate and caring. The pace was not too slow, but pretty steady.  Overall a great book to grab and read. I couldn't put this down!  I give this a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Excerpt:

 

“So this is the bedroom,” she said, looking around the immaculate space.

 

 

“Yes, it is. Feel free to put your own touches on it for as long as you’re here.” The decorator had pulled together an apartment for three single men.

 

 

She treated him to a generous smile. “Thank you.”

 

Knowing he’d be tempting himself and not caring, he stepped closer until her feminine fragrance filled his nostrils. They stared at each other for a long, charged moment, desire he couldn’t escape building inside him.

 

She met his gaze and her lips parted. It wasn’t an invitation, but her eyes still held his, and she wasn’t backing away either.

 

He slid his hand behind her neck, cupping her soft skin. “I know I’m your boss, so no pressure,” he said as he applied a bit to her skin. “But I want to kiss you.”

 

She paused. Looked up at him. Then rose onto her toes. His mouth met hers. Warm and willing, her soft lips glided against his and his entire body came alive. He tightened his grip on her neck as he slid his tongue into her waiting mouth. She tasted sweet and he deepened the kiss, wanting more of her. With a moan, her body leaned against his, her breasts pressing against his chest.

 

Their tongues meshed and mingled. Their harsh breathing filled the room. The kiss went on and he was in no rush to end the moment. But suddenly she gasped and pulled away.

 

“We shouldn’t,” she said, brushing her damp lips with her hand.

 

“Because…?”

 

She swallowed hard. “I just … I need to focus on my work,” she said, turning away so he couldn’t see her face.

 

 

He narrowed his gaze, wondering if something more was at play. A woman didn’t kiss him like she did, then back off that easily. But he also wasn’t going to push her. He’d see how things between them played out during her time here and take his cues from her. Which didn’t mean he wouldn’t play up the charm and test her resolve.

 

“I think the apartment will work out well.” She headed for the door.

 

“Do you need help moving in?”

 

“I’ve got it but thank you,” she said in a strained voice.

 

“Who’s helping?” he persisted.

 

“Well, Ellie. Owen wouldn’t get his hands dirty moving my clothing over. It’s fine. We’ve got it. She’s borrowing her parents’ car.”

 

He rolled his eyes. “I’ll be over at eight a.m. tomorrow and we’ll get you moved in.

 

”He wasn’t going to leave the two women to drag all her things alone back and forth up to the apartment.

 

We’ll get me moved in?”

 

He grinned. “I’ve got partners, don’t I? All you need to worry about is packing your things up. We’ll handle the rest.”

 

“But–”

 

He placed a finger to her lips, and damned if her eyes didn’t darken with desire. She might be focused on her career, but she was interested in him as well.

 

 

 

 

Better than Sexy (Sexy #3)Better than Sexy by Carly Phillips
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book # 3 in the Sexy series. This story can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Landon is looking for talent to perform over the summer. In looking he finds the right talent. Now he must convince her to sign on the dotted line. What he doesn't plan on is being attracted her so strongly.

Vivi is excited for the opportunity she has been waiting for all her life. Little does she know it comes with strings. Can she keep a secret that could cancel her happiness before it has even begun?

This was an amazing read. I loved the story, and the characters were just meant to be. I found the story to be bittersweet. Plan for tissues as this is a moving and emotional story that wraps around you and pulls the reader in. The strength of the characters and their attraction was powerful

Short
A Very Dare Christmas - Carly Phillips

This is book #6.5 from the Dare To Love series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel, but I would not recommend this.  Reading these in order helps to avoid spoilers and gives a full understanding of such a deliciously sexy family series.

 

Ian misses alone time with his wife.  Surprises can be fun.  He plans a Christmas present for both by making the time.

 

Riley cannot believe how tired she is lately.  She is wishing she had more time for all the directions she feels pulled in.

 

This was a short, sexy, and sweet stop back into see where the characters were in their lives.  My only complaint was that it was too short.  My joy was that they are great together.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Sexy Dare - Carly Phillips

Faith is building her business the best she knows how.  All while trying to stay hidden from the danger she knows is trying to find her.  When she meets a hot guy willing to be of help it is such a nice change of pace.  But a risk she may need to avoid.

 

Jason AKA "Jase" Has been wanting to bring his business up to the next level.  After a chance encounter helping a damsel in distress, he gets the courage to ask his business partners to take the risk with him.  Now he just needs to man up and take the risk in asking her out too.

 

This was a slower start than I expected.  I like that the characters were very compelling.  They had more to their story, and really did need each other.  Then there were the sparks between them that kept the heat simmering until it erupts into flame.  Such a good read.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
