Dare to Love ( Ian & Riley) #1

 When it comes to family, Ian Dare gives his all but in relationships he offers the bare minimum. Until one glimpse of sensual Riley Taylor arouses his dominant and protective instincts. He will do anything to possess her … and does. But any future with Riley must include him dealing his half-brother who is a constant reminder of the pain he’d rather forget. 

Riley Taylor believes herself immune to domineering men – until charismatic Ian Dare turns a simple kiss into an all out assault on her senses and she discovers she likes his brand of control in the bedroom. As their affair heats up, they soon realize they complete each other in ways neither imagined. But Riley’s past is closer than she cares to remember, and her struggles with Ian’s dominance might just cost her everything. (love story, contemporary romance, alpha heroes, beach reads, sports heroes, bad boys, billionaire)

If I say that I love the book and the series, it would be an understatement!

Dare to Love is an amazing book and I loved every second of it! The story is intriguing and has excellent details, the characters are very well developed and actually quite amazing and the writing is just exceptional.

Let me tell you why I loved it so much. Ian is our typical alpha male, super rich, extremely sexy man who has few issues. Riley is our typical strong, beautiful, smart but not so rich,  funny young woman, who also has few issues. Their chemistry is explosive so we get to have many steamy scenes. It sounds like the oh-I-read-many-books-like-this-but-I-love-this-kind-of-book-anyway , right? Well Carly Phillips’s writing makes it more like the oh-my-freakin-God-Give-me-more-kind-of-book!!

The general, outer story may have been seen in other books. However, I can honestly say that Dare to Love is AMAZING and OUTRAGEOUSLY ADDICTIVE! I loved everything about it, the story, the characters, the writing, the dialogues, EVERYTHING! But the best part is that it’s so damn fun to read! You may like the book, you may love it, enjoy it, adore it...I have read many good books that I liked, loved, adored and enjoyed..

Dare to Love, though, takes the Prize of the Most Enjoyable Book!! It is incredible and highly addictive!

This books is perfect; thus no spoilers or teaser lines for you! Go Grab it Now! I cannot recommend it enough!!

I have no other words to describe it. It’s a MUST READ!!

So, Dare to Love receives Beyond 5 Stars!!


She let herself into her building, walked up one flight to her apartment, and was startled to find someone waiting outside her door. Even in the dimly lit hall, she recognized Ian Dare’s tall frame, dark hair, and handsome features. Excitement bubbled up inside her, followed by wariness.

“Finally,” he said, leading her to believe he’d been standing there awhile.

Dare to Desire ( Alex & Madison) #2

Quarterback Alex Dare, had it all -- an all-star football career and his choice of willing women -- until a severe injury forces him into early retirement. 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?

Another amazing novel from the Dare to Love Series!!

Its quality is equal to Dare to Love’s quality, but I think Dare to Love is my favorite...And though Dare to Desire is a stand-alone, I suggest you read the first book as well, because 1) You get the full picture and 2) Dare to Love is absolutely amazing!

Now, let’s go to Dare to Desire!

It’s remarkable and Carly Phillips’s ability to provide us with 2 consecutive-in-the-series exceptional books is astonishing!!!! I love that woman! Not kidding you..I love and admire her!!

What I loved the most about it is its timeline and pace. It starts with some kind of parallelism with the first book, with Carly describing through Alex and Madison how their relationship began and how it abruptly ended. We also get some details throughout the book. After their breakup, we move forward and see how they meet again and how both of them try not to repeat their previous mistakes, with one of them pulling and the other pushing. This timeline is different and doesn’t appear very often in books. Well Carly does it perfectly! I loved how different it is! And I loved how she uniquely connects the first with the second book. We move forward with all of the characters from both books, without any hurry but with class and humour.

Carly’s writing is impeccable as ever!!

It is HOT and FUNNY, but it also has DRAMA and TEARS. It shows that when you truly love someone, you fight for that person and you never stop fighting. It shows the significance of trust, love, patience, persistence and compromise!

The Dare to Love Series receives another 5 Star Medal!!!! It is outrageously good!

Dare to Desire is unique and outstanding! Another MUST READ from the amazing Carly Phillips!


“Alex, I believe you know Madison Evans.”

Blindsided — and his half brother knew it — Alex strode up to her.  He inhaled her familiar fruity scent, which only served as a reminder of the hot times he’d spent breathing her in as his cock moved inside her body. Her effect on him was potent, and even the most common expressions failed him.

“Alex,” she said, her cool tone bringing his head out of the desire-filled fog he’d found himself in.

“Hey, Angel,” he said, using the endearment he’d started calling her during their brief time together.  Another sign he’d had it bad, whether he’d wanted to admit it or not.

Her head whipped up, her eyes narrowing and settling on Ian.  “This won’t work.”  She turned to go. 
Dare to Surrender ( Gabe & Isabelle) #3


After ending a relationship to a cheating, domineering man, Isabelle Masters takes off in her leased Mercedes, only to be arrested for grand theft and hauled to a local police station. To her surprise, she is rescued by the most unlikely person possible, Gabriel Dare, a man she’s been attracted to for far too long. Gabe offers Isabelle freedom along with an invitation to Eden, an exclusive island resort where everything and anything is possible.

Although Gabe yearns to possess Isabelle, he knows all too well he must fight his primitive need to bind her to him, and instead help bring out the independent woman she yearns to become – or risk losing her for good.

A woman who needs to run her own life. A man who needs to exert control. Can she surrender to his erotic demands without losing her sense of self once more?

Dare to Surrender is as extremely hot as it is heartwarmingly sweet.

Dare to Surrender takes us to Ian’s and Alex’s cousins, Gabe, Lucy and Decklan. It was a bit unexpected (the choice of Gabe as the next leading Dare character). But it did introduce Eden to us...In case you don’t remember, we met Gabe in the second book where Alex and Madison visited him at his club.

And here we are!

First of all, I’d like to let you know that Dare to Surrender has steamier scenes and the book may mention something like “kinky”, “BDSM”, “tied up”..There’s nothing too graphic, but it deviates from the first and second books’ type of sex scenes, if we can call them that. Kinky or not, Carly has delivered another book, full of sexy moments and even sexier scenes!

Other than that, this book’s story is in the same environment as the previous books from the series. The story is original, mysterious and suspenseful. The characters are intriguing and quite unpredictable! And not to mention Carly’s impeccable writing skills.

The story focused not only on the couple but also on both Gabe and Isabelle. We saw them connecting to each other and changing as a couple. We actually witnessed every step of their relationship; getting close to each other, creating their unison and finally getting their happily-ever-after. We saw every stage of their relationship and it was a lovely sight to be given. Their story is beautiful, romantic and little sad.

And that’s what I loved the most about this book. That we got to see everything. Carly’s writing shone once more!

Somewhere towards the ending, it seemed like few events occurred a bit rushed. And since Carly’s writing and the story were really exceptional up until that moment, the change in pace was more apparent than it would be if they weren’t as good as they really was.

And another thing...I LOVED THE EPILOGUE!!It was so different from any other and again, it was unpredictable..Those characters never ceased to amaze me, to be honest!

So, Dare to Surrender gets 4 Gorgeous Stars!!!
