Dare to Love


Ian Dare is at his father’s birthday party when he meets Riley. The attraction is instant but he thinks she is dating his half-brother Alex and therefore is off-limits. Once it’s established that they are just friends, Ian makes his move. But as they get closer, it is evident that Riley’s emotional baggage could threaten the relationship permanently.


This is the first story of the Miami Dare family series. I read book 6 in the series Dare to Take, and I was hooked on the series. Carly Phillips did not disappoint with this book either.

Ian is a hot, hunky dominant male who makes it clear what he wants. At the same time, he has a soft protective side. Who doesn’t like that in a man?

I like Riley because she was strong and loyal to her friends. Well she may not have always made the right choices, she tried to do what she thought was best.

Both Ian and Riley have their own insecurities and hangups because of their backgrounds, but they were at least open to evolving to make the relationship work.

“You make me want”, she whispered, “you make me believe.”

TOW final word: BUY, BORROW, PASS
Buy! This is the first of the series and I recommend buying it because it is one of those romances that you will want to read over and over.
