Dare to Touch by Carly Phillips had me rooting for Olivia and Dylan and their happily ever after from the outset. Dylan Rhodes has had his eye on co-worker Olivia Dare for some time, however she was reticent to give into the fact she wanted nothing more than to spend time with her sexy co-worker and get to know him better. Finally Dylan decides he is taking the necessary steps to go after what he wants -- and that would be a relationship with Olivia. As Olivia and Dylan begin to spend time together, they slowly reveal their pasts, both which include abandonment issues brought on by an absent parent during their childhood. Olivia also endured a devastating loss in her late teens that has shaped many of her beliefs about what she believes she wants in the future and threatens to derail the relationship she and Dylan are beginning to build. An almost tragedy with a close friend of Dylan's helps to put things in perspective for Olivia, causing her to take control of her life and overcome the fear she's been living with for years. In the end this story is about never giving up and doing whatever you have to in order to get to where you want to be whether in love or in life. Carly Phillips has once again written a heartfelt, honest, wonderful story. I enjoy the Dare family immensely and I can't wait to continue our journey with them as this series continues!

Olivia Dare from the first family of Dares has kept relationships in the no-no category. Then she met and started working with Dylan. The feelings were there, the sparks were flying, and she fought it tooth and nail. Olivia is dealing with the abandonment of her father, he was there sometimes but not when it counted. She also has a history that she needs to share with Dylan if she wants the relationship to work. Dylan is not willing to let Olivia go. He pushes, he pulls, he tugs at her heart, and he lets her have space when she needs it. He is not willing to let go of a good thing. He knows her history, but not all of it. He also knows that he has to share his history. Carly Phillips has written a series of books perfect for those who want a happily ever after. The stories are fast paced, erotic, and devourable. There is a common theme of hurt, lost loves, family ties, and looking for new love. The male characters are strong males with dominate personalities in the bedroom and out. This is a series that can be read one book at a time, yet are much better read in order.

Olivia works for her brothers football team. Dylan is the travel coordinator. He'll do anything to get past the walls she has put up. Her father kept another family, her boyfriend cheated on her, she got pregnant and then lost the baby. Now Dylan is going to do anything to get the woman he loves. I love Dylan and Olivia. Olivia doesn't realize how strong she really is. Plenty of sex. I laughed and cried.

3.75 stars--DARE TO TOUCH is the fifth installment in Carly Phillips contemporary adult Dare to Love erotic romance series focusing on the Dare family. This is Olivia Dare, executive director of the Miami Thunder, and team travel director Dylan Rhodes storyline-a friends to lovers trope that finds Olivia reluctant to lose her heart-once again. Told from third person point of view, the storyline follows Olivia and Dylan’s building relationship as they work together towards a common goal. As the Pro Bowl approaches, our couple find themselves trying desperately to keep one of their players from falling off the grid but influence from outside family members find the all star player succumbing to family demands. Olivia is one of the original Dare siblings first introduced in Dare To Love-the daughter of Robert Dare who had kept secret a second family from his first wife and children, and a man who continues to disappoint his now adult kids. With a past mired in loss and betrayal, Olivia is unwilling to suffer through any more heartbreak but soon finds herself falling in love with Dylan Rhodes. Dylan’s family history is shrouded in secrets and abandonment, and he fully understands Olivia’s need to protect her heart, but Olivia’s history of heartbreak and family loss finds our heroine unsure about a future with Dylan or any man who is looking for a family and more. The prior relationship between our couple has already been established, first introduced in Dare to Love book 1. Their sexual chemistry is palpable; their attraction to one another mutual and addicting. Dylan and Olivia have danced around one another but the time has come for Dylan to claim Olivia as his own. The numerous $ex scenes are passionate, intimate and compelling-again, with a little bit of kink on the side. The secondary and supporting characters include Ian and Riley (Dare to Love #1); Olivia’s brother Scott; Dylan’s ex girlfriend; as well as Dylan’s sister and her family . Several of the Dare siblings and cousins make a cameo appearance lending familiarity and continuity to the storyline. DARE TO TOUCH brings the focus of the series back to the original Dare siblings with Olivia and Dylan’s story. Carly Phillips keeps the reader’s attention with the ensemble cast of characters for whom we want nothing more than a happily ever after. Carly’s storyline’s are fast paced, erotic, alluring and inviting. She will ‘dare’ you to keep reading-one love story at a time.

Olivia Dare and Dylan Rhodes work for the Miami Thunder.  There is definite chemistry but Olivia has issues.  The biggest being her father.  Growing up, always thinking your dad was away on business, only to find out he had a whole other family he was raising.  A cheating ex-boyfriend also contributed to her issues.  Dylan wants her and after being friends for a while, he's ready to make his move.  He won't stop until she's his.  Will Olivia let her past get in the way?   Another magnificent book in the Dare to Love series.  Olivia and Dylan are burning up the sheets!  Dylan's sexiness is off the charts and he and Olivia are perfect for each other.  I completely understand why she has her issues. Then we're blasted with Meg.  She's a twist that I didn't expect.  Looking at Olivia's past, is she really going to believe the "ex-girlfriend is my friend and it's purely platonic" excuse?  That one's hard for any of us to accept.  I love the entire Dare family and I can't wait to read more. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

5 star The story has laughs, suspense, pain, secrets, and heartbreak. I was pulled right into this story. The story flowed well and I was kept interested. If you have not already read the below I would recommend reading those books first: Dare to Love (Dare to Love, #1) Dare to Desire (Dare to Love #2) Dare to Surrender (Dare to Love #3) Dare to Submit (Dare to Love, #4) This is Olivia and Dylan’s story. Dylan wants Olivia and will stop at nothing to get her. Olivia is broken from her last relationship. She has issues she has never really dealt with. The chemistry between them is hot. But with her past issues can Olivia really let Dylan in? Will her fear and the secrets she is keeping bring the end of their relationship. Or will Dylan fight for them even if she can’t? I loved these characters and all the Dare family members. 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.
