Aurora gets her second chanceWhat happens when two of the most entertaining, interesting, sexy and engaging family sagas collide? A five star, emotional and beautiful story, that’s what! Aurora Kingston and Nick Dare get their one-night, secret baby story told and it’s as wonderful as you’d imagine to be. When college student Nick spends an incredible night with 18 year old waitress Aurora, the sparks flew. But of course circumstances kept them apart until the night more than six years later bring them together, thanks to the business collaboration between their families. Aurora is not the poor, orphaned girl she was that night…she’s now part of the powerful and wealthy Kingston clan. To say that they are surprised to see each other is an understatement, especially when Nick learns he’s the father of 5 year old Leah, the result of their one night together. While he has every right to be upset, Nick’s attitude towards not only finding Aurora again but discovering his daughter again is beautiful. He’s in awe of this little spitfire and thrilled to find the woman he never forgot. Aurora is more cautious, naturally, being protective of her daughter, but also her own heart. Because while she may love her new family, she’s never forgotten or gotten past her years as the unwanted child in foster care. Carly Phillips’ blending of these two characters, as well as their families, is simply wonderful. Low on angst but big in emotions, it might very well be my favorite book from her extensive and enjoyable catalog..Score: 5/5

She’s got major trust issues!This is book 5 in The Kingston Family series and it features Nick Dare and Aurora Kingston. Six years ago they had a one night stand, with no last names, mutually agreed. He regrets not getting to know more about her. He can’t believe his luck when he sees her at his brother’s movie premiere. This is his second chance. He had no idea she was a Kingston and that she had a daughter. When he knocks on her door, he never expects to see his own eyes staring back at him. This is a fantastic, steamy, second chance romance with amazing characters! I love Nick’s character growth. Who can resist cute little 5 year old Leah! I love that Aurora still lives more on the frugal side instead of someone with a ton of money, which she has. I always look forward to visiting the Kingston family and the Dare families..Score: 5/5

Aurora and nickAurora's story is finally here. I have been waiting for years for her story and it was absolutely my favorite book that I have read this year. It has a surprise daddy, and he is a Dare. It was awesome and I loved every minute of it. It was sexy, hot, sweet and totally awesome! Aurora was an orphan who wasn't an orphan we have been seeing her in stories about the Kingston family. Essentially she was a long lost Kingston until her brother found out she existed. She had a very heart breaking story as she was living on the street essentially when she found herself pregnant. That lead to her being found by the Kingston family and now her daughter is 6 and she runs a charity to help girls like her. Her brother Dash is a movie star and she is at the movie premier when her past catches up to her. Her baby daddy she only knew him as "Nick" with no last name, she was never able to tell him that he was a daddy until she spots him at a movie premiere. When Nick sees her, he can't believe his eyes. He has been trying to find her for years. Fate finally stepped in and they find each other but Nick has a six year old surprise awaiting him. This was an awesome second chance romance but also very much a reunion romance. Both Aurora and Nick had insta lust/love but lost each other until now. He wants to claim them but his big problem is that Aurora needs stability and he lives out of a suitcase. This was a really awesome and fun romance. I loved the whole reunion and the author did a great job with the characters and the issues that they each had. I loved how Nick was with Aurora and his newly discovered daughter. I received a complimentary early release copy of this e-book from the author prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review..Score: 5/5

Second Chances!Aurora has been on her own for most of her life. When Lincoln found her she was alone and pregnant and didn’t realize the gift of family she just received. Five years later she sees her daughter’s father. The man she knew only as Nick. Nick can’t believe his eyes. The woman he couldn’t get out of his head is here and he isn’t letting her slip away. Soon he finds out he is a father. Convincing Aurora to take a chance on him is his one goal in life. He is to about to lose his one love and his daughter this time. Such a perfect ending for Aurora, Nick and Leah. I loved it!.Score: 5/5

I dare you not to love it!Carly Phillips never fails to give us a book with everything! The heat, laughs, tears and joy can all be found within this book. Aurora and Nick could have been the typical star-crossed lovers, but thankfully that wasn’t the case. If you’re familiar with Ms. Phillips other books you’ll see some familiar faces/names with the Dare family..Score: 5/5

All I hoped for!Out of all of the Kingston family, I was most anxious to read Aurora’s story. It was all that I hoped it would be. It’s no wonder that she had issues regarding family and abandonment, given who her birth parents were. But, the rest of family made up for it. I liked that Nick was pretty perceptive about how to approach and deal with those issues. And it didn’t hurt to have a little spitfire like Leah to change his life! This was an enjoyable read that exceeded my expectations!.Score: 5/5

One night, no last names …I've been waiting, it seems for forever, for Aurora's story. Then to have it be a crossover novel with the new Dare series, BONUS. I love the Dare's and have enjoyed the Kingston's. I was looking forward to knowing what happened with Leah's daddy. Quite the story. I think one of the things I enjoyed most and wish I had seen more of, was Aurora's charity. It is such a great idea and I was so glad she was able to accomplish that. Now back to Aurora and Nick. They are actually a good couple. She feels more comfortable with him than anyone else and she is able to open up about her childhood and how she feels about it and her fears that stem from it. Nick is understanding and compassionate, and a freaking God with his patience. But the best part was when Melly sat Aurora down and point blank told her to imagine her life with Nick as just Leah's dad. Could she live with that? Probably the best thing that she could have done..Score: 4/5

4.25stars-seductive and fated romance4.25 stars-- JUST ONE DARE is the first instalment in Carly Phillips’ contemporary, adult THE KINGSTON FAMILY erotic, romance series, a series interconnected with the author’s Dirty Dare /Dare Nation series. This is twenty-four year old, single mother Aurora Michaels, and billionaire Nick Dare’s story line. JUST ONE DARE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty but for back story and cohesion I recommend reading book one JUST ONE NIGHT. Told from dual third person perspectives (Aurora and Nick) JUST ONE DARE follows the second chance romance and relationship between twenty-four year old, single mother Aurora Michaels, and billionaire Nick Dare. Approximately six years previous, Aurora Michaels had a one-night stand with a man named Nick, and several weeks later discovered she was homeless and pregnant with Nick’s child. A few months would pass before Aurora was discovered by the family she never knew, a family of billionaires and businessman into which our heroine was immediately accepted. Fast forward to present day wherein Aurora, now a part of the Dare family, comes face to face with her past, a past that never knew what happened to the one that got away. Enter hotel magnate Nick Dare, and the man with whom Aurora will fall in love. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Aurora and Nick, and the potential fall-out as Aurora struggles with issues of trust having watched everyone she knows walk out of her life. Nick Dare never knew the last name of the woman that had stolen his heart but a movie premiere would bring Nick face to face with Aurora Michaels, the half-sister to the Kingston siblings, and the woman who had given birth to the daughter he never knew. Hoping to reconnect and become a part of his daughter’s life, Nick begins a slow seduction of our story line heroine, the woman with whom Nick will fall in love. The relationship between Nick and Aurora began as a one night stand in which neither knew the last name of one another; a secret baby relationship such that Nick wanted to be more than a father but the man with whom Aurora would fall in love but as the man in charge of the chain of Dare hotels, Nick was constantly called away for emergencies and meeting, emergencies that threatened Aurora’s tenuous trust of our story line hero. The $ex scenes are passionate and erotic without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. There is a large ensemble cast of colorful and energetic secondary and supporting characters from both the KINGSTON FAMILY, DARE TO LOVE, DARE NATION and the NY DARES series. The reconnection between Aurora and Nick looks back on the history of two families almost destroyed by betrayal, secrets and lies. JUST ONE DARE is a story of family, friendships and relationships, love and acceptance, second chances and happily ever after. The fast paced, character driven premise is captivating and entertaining; the romance is seductive and fated; the characters are charismatic and dynamic..Score: 4/5

Worth the Wait!Been waiting for this for so long and it didn’t disappoint.l Loved Aurora and Nick’s story..Score: 5/5

Five Stars!!We’ve been waiting for Aurora Kingston’s story… but to have it linked to a “Dare” was a bonus!!! Carly Phillips never disappoints; her books are always a fantastic read! I loved this second chance romance! I also loved the characters, and I loved visiting with characters from previous books in this series. I won’t go much more into the storyline because my main goal here is to let you know that it was definitely worth reading. I personally don’t like spoilers so I won’t spoil this story for anyone else!. Five Stars!!!. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review..Score: 5/5
