Dare to Take (Dare to Love Series #6) by Carly Phillips

A one night stand.
A secret.
A mistake they tried to forget.

On leave from the army, Tyler Dare was just looking for a little fun, but his sister's best friend is off limits. Yet unable to deny how sexy and alluring she is, he finds it all too easy to succumb to a night of passion and heat that ends the next morning in the worst way possible.

There are just some guys you don't touch--even someone as innocent and inexperienced as Ella Shaw knows that. But when her best friend's brother is up for grabs and willing, she can't resist. After all, she's wanted him for years…

Now, Ella is stranded on a tropical island with a hurricane bearing down, and only Tyler can save her. It's his chance to make amends for the past and show the woman he's never forgotten that he's coming after her . . . in more ways than one.

Can't wait to read more books about the DARE family...

Dare To Take by Carly Phillips is an entertaining read. This is a fairly quick read, a great choice for those with limited time for reading. Ms Phillips has delivered a well-written book complete with awesome characters. The suspense, drama, humor and sexy bits in Ella and Tyler's fast paced book will keep readers glued to their kindles. I enjoyed reading Dare To Take and look forward to reading more from Carly Phillips in the future. Dare To Take is book 6 in the Dare To Love Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Tyler and Ella's Story This is the finale full length novel in this amazing series. All books in the series are stand alone issues but are best read in order. No cliff hangers but does contain great characters, addictive plots, set the sheets on fire love scenes and HEAs.

Dare to Take by Carly Phillips....What a great ending to a wonderful series. Tyler and Ella are probably my favorite couple in this series. These two have so much chemistry and love, the pages are burning up, you can't turn them fast enough. This book held your attention all the way through, there is drama, mystery, love, family, friendship and hot sex scenes, which makes for a great story. This is a must read, don't miss this one. I received a complimentary book from publisher for an honest review.

This is the sixth book in this series however it can be read as a standalone; I haven't read the other books in this series. This book is emotional at times but it also has danger, romance, and more. Tyler and Ella have a strained relationship and have for several years. Tyler discovered something when he was just 14 and it affected his whole family. Tyler lives with so much guilt and not just for what he discovered that day. Ella had a rough childhood. She lost of mother when she was very young and then might as well have lost her father when he remarried. Avery one of Tyler's sister became friends with Ella while they were both in the hospital. Ella became another member of Tyler's family through that friendship. Now several years later Avery needs Tyler to go help Ella out after she was attacked while working. Tyler must now face what he considers one of his worst screw ups. Tyler and Ella have always been attracted to each other but he worries as she is like a little sister in his family. Ella has many issues that stem from her childhood and one that stems from Tyler. Will Tyler be able to finally stop caring the weight of the world around on his shoulders? Will working to fix things with Ella lead to him healing his wounds from the past? Will he help Ella with her issues as well This book was hopeful and emotional. Ella and Tyler are so alike and find a way to help each other. What was once awkward becomes a great love. The characters in this book are great. I want to read the other books in this series after reading this one. I was pulled into the story and couldn't stop reading. Parts were funny and others pulled at your heart strings. I highly recommend this series. Great job Carly Philips. I was given this book in return for an honest review.

Sigh. I just love the Dare family so much. Despite all the makings for a cheesy romance or screwed up family Ms. Phillips continues to make each story unique, amazing, and earn a top spot on my book list. It almost hurts how much I love this series are the NY Dare series because quite honestly I can never get enough. With Dare to Take we pick up with Tyler Dare who ends up falling, and falling HARD, for Ella, his sister's best friend. They shared one night years ago. But it was a night that marked them both in different ways. And a night they cannot forget. They've played avoidance quite well since, but when Ella finds herself needing more help than she realizes Tyler is sent to the rescue. Yet, instead of just being her knight in shining armor he begins to think about the What-Ifs of life. And as much as his family plays a part in his past it always comes back to Ella because he's beginning to focus on his future and what it could be with her in it. This book checked all of my best book boxes. It mixes serious tones of reality with humorous moments and begins and finishes with hella sexy chemistry between Tyler and Ella. Along the way we see the Dare siblings and their main squeezes, but the focus always comes back to Ella and Tyler and their past, present and future. It's not an easy road for them. It complicated and almost impossible at times. They have personal issues that arise and that they must deal with along with the hurdle of their relationship and where it's going. So there's a lot of ups and downs, but through it all I was catapulted into their world and honestly did not want to leave. There is so much that these two have gone through and do go through and it gave me all the feels. So, bottom line time: Do I recommend this book? Abso-freaking-lutely. This might have been one of my favorite books in the series. It just as sexy, if not more so, just as alluring in terms of the storyline, and simply a wonderful read that I think every reader could lose themselves in. Carly Phillips has outdone herself yet again and I can't wait for whatever comes next from her very talented author-brain. So, PLEASE pick this book up and I know you'll devour it the same way I did! Happy Reading! *ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

What Worked For Me: I absolutely adored Dare to Take. I will be honest, the best friend of sibling trope is one of my absolute favorites but when you combine a second chance at a bad first encounter….Sign this girl up!!!! This book was refreshing and I loved every second of it. Tyler is our super-hot and noble hero who, in my opinion, takes too much blame for the problems of the world around him. That makes committing to anyone, let alone our beautiful and enchanting heroine Ella, difficult for him to handle. He is unsure of himself and his abilities to stay strong and true in a relationship. He deems himself unworthy and it takes some strength and tough love from his mother and, more importantly, from Ella, to help him realize, he is capable of having a committed and deep relationship with someone. And, he desperately wants Ella. I loved Ella. She is so strong and brave, even when things around her don’t quite always go her way. She is the underdog who bravely faces things head on and I loved how she just keeps pushing through each and every obstacle she is faced with (except for one issues, and the girl deserved to bury her head for a few days with that). She is absolutely worthy of Tyler, and his match in every way, but she has a hard time trusting him after their botched one-night together years ago. Still, when her life is on the line Tyler pulls out all the stops to prove to her just how important she is to him and that he will do whatever is takes to make her his, forever. This couple was absolutely incendiary, their chemistry was just that hot! They had so many moments where they made me laugh and in the same breath, made me cry. Carly Phillips certainly wins when it comes to steamy romance with passion and amazing chemistry between characters. This book has that and more…glimpses into the lives of the previous Dare siblings (which I loved), a fast-moving and entertaining plot, and a swoon-worthy happily ever after that left me feeling good long after the book ended. What Didn’t Work For Me: The book was perfect! Would I Recommend This Book: Yes, especially to my friends who like their romance sweet but with a little bit of erotic spice. Final Star Rating: 5

"He shut her up with a kiss. A hard, long, tongue-dueling, d*ck-hardening kiss." YES! That's what I'm talking about! The Dare to Love series just gets better every time. The entire series is a 5-star rating for this very satisfied reader and Dare to Take just adds to that long list of amazing reads. Tyler Dare and Ella Shaw are setting the sheets on fire! The chemistry and passion these two share is beautiful. They both have issues from the past. Some of those issues are shared between them and some are from family members. Both know there's no moving forward unless they are able to deal with all of those issues. As far as Robert Dare is concerned, all I have to say is...READ THE BOOK! It's awesome! I love seeing all of Emma's children and their spouses celebrating her special day. Thank you to this amazing author for making this an extremely pleasurable journey. 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.

Both Ella and Tyler have inner demons that they need to work on. They have a shared past and their one night together couldn't have been more of a disaster. When Ella is mugged Tyler comes to her rescue. Can they work out the tension and awkwardness between them? Who would want to cause Ella harm because things aren't staying on the island. As things escalate the passion between Ella and Tyler heat up. I thought it was a good story and you get to see more inner workings of the Dare family. You can feel the guilt Tyler has that's eating him up inside not just about Ella, but secrets he's kept. The way Ella got treated pretty much her whole childhood by the person whose supposed to her support breaks my heart. That stuff right there leaves a bad scar on a person, but can she trust enough to let Tyler make her feel whole again? Can Tyler prove she's more than a typical fling? I thought the epilogue was fitting and a nice set up for Kade.

Oh My Gosh… another Dare boy bites the dust… or just falls in love. Tyler Dare has seen Ella Shaw forever. She was always his best friend’s little sister. Then she grew up. When things get tough you can always count on a Dare boy to step up and take care of you. That is what happens when Ella is on location for her job and is mugged during a hurricane. Tyler steps up, takes care of her, and brings her home safely. The only thing he didn’t and couldn’t protect was his heart. Dare to Take is wonderful. Carly Phillips takes two characters that have grown up together and turns their relationship into so much more than friends. It’s been obvious for some time that there was more than friendship between Tyler and Ella. I loved that it wasn’t a one night thing. Their feelings are real and true. The respect they have for each other keeps them from having that one night thing. They work for their relationship. There are circumstances that pull them together but they still make a relationship work for them. When reading a series I always wonder if the series will lose their pizzazz. Will this be the book that loses its pull? Carly Phillips is amazing. Each book is just as good if not better than the book before it. The Dare Family is wonderful. The love, respect, and trust they have with each other and with their mates make them the dream family. With all that could go wrong somehow they manage to always stay together, stand together, and be together. I definitely recommend checking out this book and this series.
