Dare to Desire (Dare to Love Book 2)

Dare to Desire (Dare to Love Book 2) by Carly Phillips

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? (love story, contemporary romance, alpha heroes, beach reads, sports heroes, bad boys, billionaire)

This review is from: Dare to Desire (Dare to Love Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
I loved this book! I read Dare to Love and it blew me away. Having never read any of Carly's books, I instantly fell in love with the Dare series. The characters are all strong and I love them. Alex was one of my favorite character in Dare to Love. Here in his own book, I continued to see reasons why I love him. He's strong, stubborn and just like Ian. But as with his brother, he has many redeeming qualities and moments.

Madison, like Riley, had it rough growing up. But it makes her who she is. An independent strong woman. I enjoy how the author makes her characters the less than perfect, but perfect together type.

"Quarterback Alex Dare took possession of the ball the same way he took possession of a woman's body. With skill, finesse, and the absolute certainty he'd score." This story is hot, steamy and so romantic I couldn't put it down. It's certainly a book that when they get to the bedroom, or near it, you shouldn't be reading in public! The best part is that these books are all stand alone.
