Love Me If You Dare (Bachelor Blog Series #2) by Carly Phillips, Coleen Marlo

When hostage negotiator Rafe Mancuso takes a bullet to save Sara Rios, his former partner, his actions make him a bona fide hero—and New York City's newest most eligible bachelor. Then Rafe admits that Sara is much more than just another woman he's rescued. Suddenly, a firestorm of gossip turns him into exactly what he doesn't want to be: the Bachelor Blog's newest hot topic. His only solution is to leave town and get himself out of the spotlight…and sexy, jaded Sara out of his mind.

NYPD officer Sara Rios has Rafe to thank for saving her life, and Rafe to blame for the media chaos surrounding her. She wants to throw herself back into duty at full throttle, but until her injuries heal, she's on leave and in search of her rescuer. From the moment she finds Rafe and meets his large, boisterous family, she's hooked. But mutual attraction doesn't always mean happily-ever-after, and these two have a long way to go to find their fairy-tale ending….

NYPD Police Officer Rafe Mancuso saves his former partner Sara Rios from an assault and has become a city hero. However, he soon learns the down size of "celebrity" status when the Bachelor Blog names him an eligible hunk. As he heals and tries to stay out of the limelight of the almost famous, Rafe retreats to his lakefront cabin. His vanishing turns the Bachelor Bog's attention on the damsel in distress he rescued, Sara. Like her ex-partner, she needs to avoid the limelight as she is to testify in court against a killer who wants her dead. Sara retreats to Rafe's cabin where the attraction that ended their partnership ignites while someone exposes her hideaway. The latest Most Eligible Bachelor Blog contemporary romance (see Kiss Me If You Can) is a delightful police procedural romantic suspense. The lead male knows who he wants and does not disguise his feelings; his target Sara shares his intense love. However, surviving the attacks on her comes before they can dare to fully embrace their love. This is a strong contemporary romance. Harriet Klausner

Honestly I would say that if you read one you read them all. This time the author didn't give me much of originality. For the most part the book was a decent read. As for the mystery part of solving who was trying to kill one of the main characters you did have a little twist. Outside of that when it came to our contemporary romance side you will most likely be able to predict the book in its entirety. Plus side for giving you several couples to counsel if you are looking into dividing common love lives into many (i.e. marital mentors point of view). I would not consider this to be the authors best work, but she did state that this was written from a perspective not of her norm.

This is a nice follow up to the first Bachelor Blog book. An easy quick read with a little mystery/thrill on the side. The love story between Rafe and Sara is fun and heartwarming. They have great chemistry and both deal differently with the fear of giving your heart to someone. The sub plot of Rafe's brother Nick and his wife Angel is a nice touch. It adds to Sara's personal struggle as she works thru her feelings for Rafe and the impact of her injury on her future. I did not see the reason for the two mystery/thriller sub-plots. They were not related and one seemed a little over the top. Unfortunately the ending leads the reader to believe this is the last of the bachelor blog books. The premise was very current, and with all the options for bachelors in NYC, I hope the Bachelor Blog finds a way to continue.

Love Me if You Dare was a cute read for me. It has the action I thrive for and romance that I crave. We meet Sara and Rafe in book two of the Most Eligible Bachelors series. Sara is a headstrong character and is having a hard time staying in one spot. She was taken out of her job due to injuries and Rafe has come in as her unofficial protector. These two clicked immediately and Sara falls for all the little details about Rafe. This book will show you the passion and the way these characters fall for each other was exciting. I love all books that Carly has written and her series I can easily get addicted to. Love Me If You Dare is great for a weekend read!

Love Me If You Dare, the second book in Carly Phillips’ Most Eligible Bachelor series is another good read. Rafe Mancuso, a hostage negotiator, suddenly becomes the latest topic of the Bachelor Blog after taking a bullet to save his former partner, NYPD officer Sara Rios. We met these two in the first book of the series, Kiss Me If You Can. Rafe tries to keep Sara safe as well as change her mind toward marriage and relationships, after her previous failed ones. The time Rafe & Sara spend with Rafe’s family is fun, offering some humor to the story. The chemistry between these two was amazing and the more time these two spend together the stronger their attraction becomes. Ms. Phillips is a wonderful storyteller which was demonstrated in this wonderful story. This book is a re-issue of a previously published story but with updated content. The humor and light hearted fun does remain. I enjoyed reading this book again and had trouble putting it down. I highly recommend this outstanding book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Rafe Mancuso and Sara Rios used to be partners for the NYPD. Rafe was engaged at the time but was drawn to Sara so he switched jobs not be tempted. Now both of them are single and Sara asked Rafe if he was interested in working security for The Lancaster Foundation's fundraiser where they would be auctioning off jewelry for their cause. What they both thought would be an easy night, turns into mayhem when Rafe takes a bullet meant for Sara. This earns Rafe the title of New York City's most eligible bachelor. Trying to escape the craziness, Rafe heads to his other house in Hidden Falls, NY, where he grew up. Back in New York City, Sara is being threatened because she is a key witness in a murder trial. To escape the threats, Sara heads to Hidden Falls with the hope of staying with Rafe for awhile until the trial starts. With both of these two living in the same house, things quickly turn romantic. Rafe realizes he wants a real relationship with Sara, unfortunately Sara only wants a friends-with-benefits type relationship. As they spend more and more time together, Sara realizes that she really likes Rafe's big, large, crazy family and maybe being in a real relationship might not be so bad. Too quickly Sara is spooked and runs away just as dangerous situations are closing in on them. It takes a lot of soul searching for Sara to realize what she really wants in life, but eventually she decides to take the leap. Both of these characters were fun and quirky. Their love story with a little of bit of a mystery thrown in was fun and entertaining. I just adored Rafe's entire extended family! Gotta love big Italian families! Overall, this was a fun story to read.

I love Rafe and Sara. Sara was held hostage at the end of the 1st bachelor’s blog series book. Who else better to save her than the man that loves her, Rafe. Rafe took a bullet for Sara. Rafe and Sara have always had a good relationship but the attraction between them is what ended their partnership in the 1st place. Can these two spend time alone together and not act on their feelings? Is Sara’s life being in danger going to ruin the best thing that could happen to this couple? Come read about the lengths Rafe and Sara endure as they try to keep her alive.

Sexy, Sweet, Entertaining, Emotionally thrilling romantic adventure with two people that have been fighting an attraction for far to long. Rafe Mancuso is all sexy, hot alpha male with a need to protect. He is a hostage negotiator and NYPD officer Sara Rios's former partner. Sara is a sassy, sexy and independent female not really looking for forever but might have just stumbled into it anyway. Loved all the heart pounding action and emotional twists. Was a greatly entertaining afternoon in the backyard sipping a cold beverage (or two) reading.

I was excited that Sara and Rafe were going to get their story told. When we met them at the end of the Bachelor Blog book 1, I knew there was more than a friendship going on there. I felt like Sara had a lot of the same relationship issues that our heroine in the first book had. Sara doesn't believe that marriage is forever and cops can't have a good marriage. Rafe has been drawn to Sara for a long time, but knows how she feels about relationships. When Sara comes to Rafe because she is in danger, he is hoping that the close proximity will break down her walls. This was a good story with a little bit of mystery and intrigue thrown in, too. Good read in this series.

This is a SEVERAL times re-read for me because I enjoy this story so much! Lord I love a sexy alpha man who would literally throw himself in front of a bullet in front a bullet for his woman. Even if the woman isn't technically "his" woman. But that doesn't stop Rafe. Now he's the sexy center of the attention and needs to recuperate. He gets out of town but the object of his desire follows him. How's he supposed to forget her when she's everywhere? Sara falls in love with the town, his family and him. Can these two make it last?? These two are incredible together. So freaking sexy. So perfect. I couldn't get enough. Loved their story from the first page. Perfectly written and had me hooked! fantastic read that I recommend to everyone!!! Happy reading!

Now one of my favorite Carly Phillips book. This was a great read and a rerelease from Carly Phillips. Rage and Sara are a great couple that we met in the first book in this series Kiss me if you can. Can Rafe keep Sara safe and also change her mind about marriage and relationships. There was so much going on in this book I did not want to put this book book down between the Sara and Rafe, Angel and Nick, Pirro and then keeping Sara safe and her job. Even though this was a rerelease this was the first time I read this book and I was definitely not disappointed and this is one of my favorite book by this author.

Rafe Mancuso (hostage negotiator) takes a bullet to save Sara Rios (former partner). He becomes the next target for the Bachelor Blog’s most eligible bachelor. NYPD Officer Sara Rios is indebted to Rafe for saving her life. These two have chemistry off the charts and maybe it is time to finally see where their attraction takes them. Add in Rafe’s fun loving family and Sara is hooked.
