A fantastic addition to the Dare to Love series

**I received an ARC for an honest review** I've been a fan of Carly Phillips for years and love her books. This one was no exception. Lucy Dare has come back home from LA for the engagement party of her brother and has brought her current boyfriend with her. She has always secretly wanted her brother's best friend Max as her own, but years before he married another woman and she wrote off that ever being a possibility. Max Savage is a billionaire who is used to getting what he wants, both in and out of the bedroom. He's always wanted Lucy, but due to circumstances in his childhood, he closed himself off to that idea years before. After marrying a woman whom he didn't love the way he should have, she died tragically and it made Max take stock of what was really important. Now that Max has set his sights on Lucy, will she allow him into her life? Will her past life experiences derail this romance before it really begins? Max and Lucy have great chemistry and they are definitely HOT together. This is another fantastic addition to this series of books!

When she shows up with a guy that no one likes, Max makes a play for her. Will it be too late, will he risk his friendship. Can they'd work through their pasts. Lucy and Max have great love,friendship, and chemistry. Carly Phillips has again makes you love her characters. She has again intertwined many of the Characters from her other books in this series into this book yet this is a standalone book.

I absolutely loved this book. Lucy and Max have incredible chemistry throughout the book, maybe due to knowing each other so long, or both having gone through loss. Lucy is a guarded but strong heroine, and it's awesome to see her just let go and enjoy life. Max is almost the complete opposite, letting her know exactly what he wants and has no issues going after it. I seriously don't know how my iPad didn't overheat, the sex scenes were so hot. I can't even put in to words the feelings it brought out, but Carly definitely nailed those ;). It was great catching up with the rest of the NY Dare's, and to see how they were doing and what is going on in their lives at the moment. A phenomenal read, that I would recommend to anyone looking for a sexy, steamy read

There are two things that I always expect from a Carly Phillips novel. A good story and a HOT read. I received an ARC of Dare to Seduce in exchange for an honest review. The fact that it was a Dare story put my mind at ease. Her Dare family consists of stories that are not only sexy reads but have substance behind the characters and their wicked sex appeal. I liked Lucy and Max together. Lucy was a temptation that festered in Max's soul. Lucy was by no means a wide-eyed innocent but I think everyone underestimated her as a person. She was more than sweet helpless Lucy and I believe that is what she liked about Max. He was controlling and forced her out of her comfort zone. With Dare to Seduce Carly Phillips pushed boundaries but she did it to give a better understanding of her characters and that is what I found riveting.

I loved this series! I however I'm stumped. If Robert Dare had five children with Emma those being, Ian,Scott,Tyler,Olivia and Avery. Then had children with Savannah those being Alex,Jason and sereine why in the NY dares at Izzy's surprise birthday it listed Alex,Jason, Seria and Samantha as Savannah's children? Samantha was also mentioned in Olivia's story. So my question is this. Does Robert have eight children or nine? And when do we get Jason's and sereias stories? And the mysterious Samantha's story?

4.5 Stars! Brilliant! This author is amazing. It all started when I picked up a recommended freebie called Dare to Love. And since that book, I have steadily kept up with each in the series (and the few spin offs) because each book is brilliant and has me coming back for more each and every time. The books continue to get better and better. This is a fun and sexy series with alpha men who make you swoon and strong women who make you believe in happy endings. Curl up with any book from this series and I guarantee you will be coming back for more as it continues to grow. I loved every single piece of this book. From start to finish Ms. Phillips captivated me and before I knew it, I had devoured this entire book. She sucked me in with her flawless writing and flowing storyline. She has a way of getting her readers from the very start... with the first word on the page. This book... amazing and very definitely a top in this series. It was sexy, sweet, fun, angsty, suspenseful, and had quite a few twists and turns along the way. This story is an epic romance that spoke to my heart and proves we all deserve a second chance in life and love... sometimes. This is Max and Lucy's story. Short and sweet, dive back into the world of the Dare's as we get a hot little number with the scorching Max and the sweet and saucy Lucy. Lucy has always loved Max but had to move on. Max was always known Lucy but when he sees her all grown up, he wants her and knows that he will do anything to make her his. But sometimes life has other plans for us... detours. Fast forward years and these two see each other again at a party. From that moment, Max knows what he has to do. He knows it is his time to make the move on Lucy and show her that she is his. He is going to prove that he is all in and makes her see it. Can Max prove himself to Lucy? It won't always be easy for these two but their happy ending will be so worth it if they stay for the ride. I highly recommend this book!

This is the 8th book in the Dare To Love series. This book can be read as a standalone. The reading of the books, in order, adds to the enjoyment and understanding of the series. Max Savage and Lucy Dare have known each other for years. Lucy does not want a fling, but that has not stopped her from lusting after him. Her feelings have been put on hold, since she does not want to be with someone who could hurt her again. Max has been in love with Lucy as long as he can remember. He has avoided chasing after her, since he is good friends with her brothers. He does not want to risk all that he has with the Dare family. When they give him the green light to go after her, he decides that winner takes all. They are so good together, even though they both have secrets from the past that are needing to be communicated. The banter is good, the sexy times are hot, and the story is just a genuine good love story! This is a definite keeper for my shelf!! ***This ARC has been given in exchange for an honest review.

Fantastic story about Max Savage and Lucy Dare. Max is a childhood friend of Gabe, Declan and Lucy Dare, of the New York Dares. Max finally gets the approval of her brothers and moves full speed ahead to win Lucy's heart. Is it too late? Are the changes he sees in her permanent or can he seduce the wild and free out of her? His marriage to Cindy crushed her! I can almost feel Lucy's pain and hesitation over Max's sudden attention. It breaks my heart that because of life's tragedies, they've wasted so many years. I love that Max wants her so much and has the patience to wait it out. This is a great addition to the Dare to Love series. Carly Phillips has done it again! I can't wait for the next one. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed is my own.

Another phenomenal book in the Dare to Love series! I devoured it in one sitting. Two strong personalities make for one fiery couple. This was seriously one hot book! Max and Lucy have known each other since they were kids but Max never said anything about his feelings…until now. He’s a serious alpha male and totally dominant. However, Lucy isn’t willing to give in to Max due to her being repeatedly abandoned but she also can’t give up on her need to have Max in her life. When he offers her a chance of a lifetime to decorate one of his restaurants Max plans to seduce her. The history between these two is evident and the connection they have is obvious. Not only do you get all those hot moments but there are also those sweet moments that come in at just the right time. The story flowed well and as usual Carly Phillips has managed to write characters that feel completely real. I was quickly immersed in Max and Lucy’s world. Max was into some BDSM in the past but the story only has some light bondage. All around it was a great story and I hope there’s more to come from this awesome series. 5 out of 5 stars!!!

Their love was one they both felt for a long time, yet they could not, would not, and did not act on it. Then life got in the way…. Lucy is a tough lady. She loved Max forever then he went and broke her heart by marrying another woman. She never got over that and the Max came flying back into her life. Both guns blazing, his heart wide open, and not willing to take no as an answer. I felt like there was a lot more that could be told in this story. There were gaps of time Max and Lucy did not interact and I wanted them to. The time they spent together was amazing and sizzling. I could not wait for more of their ah-ha moments to happen. It definitely was destiny for them to get together and I am glad that they did as adults, not letting lust and feelings get them in trouble when they were younger. I also appreciated how Lucy’s brothers did not get in the way of their relationship. They were willing to step in if they had to but understood that this was something between Lucy and Max. I recommend this entire series. It is steamy, sexy, and wonderful.

3.75 stars---DARE TO SEDUCE is the eight installment and latest novella in Carly Phillips contemporary adult DARE TO LOVE erotic romance series focusing on the Dare cousins and siblings. This is Lucy Dare –one of the New York Dare cousins, and professional chef and restaurateur Max Savage’s storyline. DARE TO SEDUCE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. We were first introduced to the Dare cousins in Dare To Surrender (Dare to Love #3)-the July 2014 installment in the multi-authored 1001 Dark Nights novella series- and Dare to Submit (Dare to Love #4). Told from dual third person perspectives (Lucy and Max) DARE TO SEDUCE is a friends to lovers/second chance storyline that focuses on the building relationship between Lucy and Max. Max has always loved Lucy, but growing up neighbors and best friends with Lucy’s brothers there was always an understood hands-off policy between Lucy and Max. But years passed, lives changed, losses and other relationships carried forward until present day where Lucy and Max found themselves together at Decklan Dare’s engagement party to Amanda Collins (Dare to Love #4), wherein Lucy’s current boyfriend found himself on the outside looking in when Max and Lucy rekindled their long fought urges and need for one another. What ensues is the building relationship between Lucy and Max, and Lucy’s need to push Max away at every available opportunity. DARE TO SEDUCE is an erotic storyline; a tale about two people who have loved one another but never took a chance on a happily ever after. Lucy had already lost too many people in her life, and wasn’t willing to risk her heart for fear of losing the only man she has ever loved. Max is a man whose childhood left our hero longing for a relationship with a woman he could love but Lucy kept Max at arm’s length as their relationship began to grow. Saying that, I felt the love between Lucy and Max was more one-sided –Lucy’s inability to let go of the past pushed everyone (including family and friends) to the periphery of her relationship needs. The $ex scenes are erotic and intense. Max likes to dominate both in and out of the bedroom. The secondary and supporting characters include Lucy’s brothers and their respective mates: Gabe and Isabelle; Decklan and Amanda. We are also introduced to Max’s new business partner and executive chef Sebastian Del Toro; as well as Max’s parents who want to rekindle their relationship with their only son. DARE TO SEDUCE is a quick and enjoyable read that takes the reader into the world of the ‘other’ Dare family: the cousins to the original Dare to Love series family; and the Dare’s who are members of an elite BDSM club and the Club Eden hotel and nightclub chain. The premise is entertaining; the characters have a history together therefore the build up to love is quick but not necessarily easy; the happily ever after fast forwards the storyline one year wherein Lucy and Max are in need of an extended vacation and some time away. Carly Phillips DARE TO LOVE series is a delight-no matter which side of the family you’re on !!
