Dare to Love Synopsis
When it comes to family, Ian Dare gives his all but in relationships he offers the bare minimum. Until one glimpse of sensual Riley Taylor arouses his dominant and protective instincts. He will do anything to possess her … and does. But any future with Riley must include him dealing his half-brother who is a constant reminder of the pain he’d rather forget.
Riley Taylor believes herself immune to domineering men – until charismatic Ian Dare turns a simple kiss into an all out assault on her senses and she discovers she likes his brand of control in the bedroom. 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.

Whitney’s Four Star Review of Dare to Desire
4 stars for a sweet and sexy story!
Madison broke her rule by allowing herself to get involved with playboy quarterback Alex Dare. Even though she knew their relationship was supposed to remain casual, it didn’t stop her heart from being broken when he dumped her after a career ending injury.
Flash forward six months and Alex is now realizing he may have let his chance for true love get away and he doesn’t mind working to get it back. Problem is, Madison is even more on guard this time. After being abandoned as a child and being passed from foster home to foster home, she can’t take another disappointment. When the two are forced to work together on a project, Madison tries to protest her heart but with a man like Alex… all bets are off.
I definitely enjoyed this book. It’s a light read and super sexy. Carly has a nice flow to her writing and I really liked the dual POV. This is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone. You’ll get more out of the secondary characters if you read the books in order.
I’d say perhaps the story was a bit too fast paced for me and the sex scenes were very redundant. Otherwise, I think anyone who wants a fast read with low angst and lots of sexy time will enjoy this book.
