Dare Me Once
Dare Me Once - Shelly Alexander

This is my first read by this author - I know, Gasp! - but it certainly won't be my last. Dare Me Once is wonderfully written and full of so many great moments. It's funny, it's emotional, it's sweet, it's sexy. It's just a great story. The characters are rich and so real they practically leap off the page. And Ben! I have to say this one touched me on a personal level with Ben. As a parent of an autistic child, specifically asperger's, I was thoroughly impressed with how well this character is done. The challenges, the triumphs, the innocence, all of it. For me, this little guy stole the show. Of course, Trace and Lily have their terrific moments too. They have great chemistry even when they're both determined to remain professional, and the way they meet and then meet again (no spoilers here) had me laughing all the way through. Even the secondary characters are interesting, love them or hate them, they're all interesting. And make no mistake, we do get a couple of those that we love to hate. I could go on and on about the characters, but when even the ducks are entertaining, you know you have a winner. The angst is low, the romance is swoon-worthy, and I couldn't put it down.

Dare Me Once (Angel Fire Falls, #1) by Shelly Alexander
Dare Me Once - Shelly Alexander

 

Moving forward is never as easy as looking back. The key is to take the wisdom gained and use it to find what makes you happy. Dare Me Once, can be summed up in one sentence. Don't sweat the small stuff. In a world full of negativity, it's easy to forget to look on the bright side, but it's the memories we make and the people we hold dear that can brighten up the darkest day. Alexander uses a father's love and the innocence of a special child to remind us that the worst moment is just a stepping stone to guide us to our best ones. A sweet story about the power of love and the beauty of hope.

Wolfishly Yours
Wolfishly Yours - Lydia Dare
The Characters:

Grayson Hadley
Liviana Mayeux

The Story:

Great story. Lady or not I really like Liviana. Her “wild” upbringing gave her the skills she needed to keep Gray in line.

The Random Thoughts:

Why didn’t Archer and Lady Sophie ever get a book? While we’re at it I’d like to see the Mayeux brothers get roped too.

Falling for the Groomsman By Diane Alberts 99 cents!
Falling for the Groomsman (Wedding Dare) - Diane Alberts

Photojournalist Christine Forsythe is ready to tackle her naughty little to-do list, and who better to tap for the job than a hot groomsman? But when she crashes into her best friend's older brother, Christine realizes her list needs updating. And fast. Tyler Dresco took her virginity during the best night of her life, then bolted. Now that they're trapped together at a destination wedding, she's going to get her revenge.

 

Tyler has never forgiven himself for how completely he lost control all those years ago. Being in Christine's arms had felt right...until he realized what he'd taken from her in the hallway of a cheap motel. And oh, how she's making him pay for it now. The insatiable heat between them has only grown stronger, but every time things heat up, Christine walks away.

 

With every encounter, things go a little bit further until Christine's caught in her own trap of seduction. And before their time's up, Tyler's not the only one wanting more...

One Night Only (Harlequin Dare)
One Night Only (Harlequin Dare) - J.C. Harroway Ash and Essie are a mass of kinetic energy. They share more than chemistry. The danger for them lies in allowing themselves to be vulnerable. He's running from the pain of a recent curveball in his life. She's running toward a better future for herself. It's the fear that keeps them moving, but the heart that holds them back. The contradictions are what make them a perfect match. She pushes him to look beyond the past and into the future. He challenges her to face the past without drowning in the heartache. Harroway tackles romance with a realism that is temptingly gritty, but never skips out on heart.
