If there was a Hockey Hall of Fame for Hockey Romance Authors, Catherine Gayle would certainly be inducted. Dreaming Up a Dare is another amazing book that I did not want to end. Hockey defenseman Jackson Maddox and ex-gymnast Pepper Wilson had been best friends since they were kids. Both are attracted to the other but neither ever make a move for fear of jeopardizing their friendship. After a few too many drinks they play a game of Truth or Dare, and feelings for each other are revealed. This contemporary sports romance takes place in Miami, Florida. It is suitable for new adult and adult audiences.
I love the easy-going relationship Maddox and Pepper have. It is obvious they have been friends forever. The two are complete opposites. He is huge, an extrovert, and dark haired. She is tiny, introverted, and blond. They know how to egg each other on and challenge each other. I loved both characters. I know this book is a part of the Dare to Love – Kindle Worlds Series, but I wouldn’t mind if Maddox was traded to either the Portland Storm or Tulsa Thunderbirds, so we would continue to see their characters there.
I appreciated how Maddox was looking out for Pepper and introducing her to people that could help her form a new career. I like how Alex Dare was worked into the story. This is the first book that I have read in the Dare to Love Series. I am curious to read a few more after being exposed to this world.
