Overview

NY Times Bestselling Author Carly Phillips turns up the heat in her newest sexy contemporary romance series, and introduces you to the Dare family... siblings shaped by a father's secrets and betrayal.

"One of my favorite reads this year." HM Ward, NYT Bestselling Author on Dare to Love

Quarterback Alex Dare, had it all -- an all-star football career and his choice of willing women -- until injury forces him into early retirement. When he is offered a ground-breaking position with a rival team, he's intrigued, but there's a catch. He'll be working alongside the same woman he callously hurt when she got too close for comfort. Social worker Madison Evans grew up in foster homes and knows what it means to have-not. She isn't impressed by Alex Dare's wealth or charm. Not since she fell hard for him once before, only to discover she was just one of his too-easy conquests.

This time around Madison refuses to succumb to Alex so easily. But Alex wants Madison. And if there is one thing Alex does well, it's to get what he wants. Can he convince Madison to take a risk and dare to love?

    I personally liked Dare To Desire a whole lot more than I liked

    I personally liked Dare To Desire a whole lot more than I liked (or lack of it) Dare To Love. This story brings us the story of Alex Dare, Riley's best friend and Ian Dare's half brother. While reading Dare To Love, I enjoyed Alex more than Ian and Riley's relationship so I was very excited to dive into his story and I am so glad I did.

    The chemistry and sexual tension between Alex and Madison is so palpable, you can't get enough. Lovers of Carly Phillips' story will drink this story in one big gulp, without taking a breath of air.

    You will not regret reading this story. It does contain very minor spoilers of Dare To Love but not much so you can start with this story if you'd like. I honestly liked this one more.

    5 star

    I was pulled right into this story. The story flowed well and I was able to read it in one sitting. The story has laughs, pain, secrets, betrayal, and heartbreak.

    If you have not already read the below I would recommend reading that book first:
    Dare to Love (Dare to Love, #1)

    This is Madison and Alex’s story. Alex and Madison have been together for a little while when he gets injured. He tells her she is no longer needed or wanted so she can go. After being raised in foster care she knows all about be rejected. When they are brought together again through work they bother wonder if they can survive the impact. Between their history and his relationship with his half-brother things could go bad fast. When they come together again are a few people going to try there hardest to keep them apart? How far will some people go to make that happen?

    I loved these characters and all the Dare siblings. There are some tear filled moments and some anger filled moments in this story. But all in all I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

    I highly recommend this book, this series and this author.

    Daring to win her back

    I wondered about Alex and his playboy ways in Dare to Love and now we get his story and it's a good one.

    So... what do you do when an injury ends your pro football career? You throw away the girl and hide away from life until your half-brother convinces you to come work for them.

    There's a catch though. That girl you threw away before, you'll be working on the project with her.

    This is book two in the Dare To Love series by Carly Phillips. Alex Dare is the half-brother to Ian Dare, whom we got to know in Dare to Surrender. Anyway...

    Alex agrees to go to work for Ian and vows to make things right with Madison, the girl he threw away, by working with her and winning her back.

    Madison, the girl, is determined to keep things professional at first. The more time they spend together though, the more she finds herself falling for him and back in his arms.

    Once they are back together, will a new job offer for Alex and Madison's foster mother's biological son tear them apart once and for all?

    Both Alex and Madison fight through their issues throughout the book and Ian and Riley make an appearance. You can read this as a stand alone book but I highly recommend Dare To Surrender as a read as well.

    I really want to love this story because the blurb about the boo

    I really want to love this story because the blurb about the book was so interesting. Madison's childhood was so sad and the author seemed to blame her for her abdomen issues. She did not deserve any of the pain she received. Then there is Alex, who had everything, and now wants Madison back. He had to work to get her back but not enough for me to feel it. Normally, this author gives us romance, attraction, fun and great interactions. I would suggest reading this because it is a stand alone book with a HEA. The first book in this series Dare to Love was better . This book had some serious topics that were heavy, and took away from the story of Madison and Alex.

It was really nice that Dare to Desire was FREE and that one book is all it took to get me hooked!! I loved all the characters and their stories. I can't wait for the next one!! Way to go Carly Phillips!!

    This was my first book by this author and I loved it! So much so

    This was my first book by this author and I loved it! So much so, I had to purchase the next book in the series to see more family members get their happy endings! (And I totally forsee myself adding the rest of them to my collection too!!)
    This book can be read as a standalone, but my guess is that if you read it you'll be dying to get your hands of the rest of the books in the series too, they are quite addictive. HIGHLY recommend this book!
