Dare to Desire by Carly Phillips Book Summary

He knows how to score
… on the field and in the bedroom.

But Alex Dare isn't prepared for the injury that sidelines him into early retirement. Still, if it means working closely with the one woman who ever meant more to him than a one night stand, he's all on board. But there is no amount of wealth or charm that could persuade social worker, Madison Evans, back into Alex's bed.

Good thing Alex loves a challenge. But soon seducing Madison becomes more than just a goal, it just might define his future.

Dare to Desire (Carly Phillips) Book Reviews

Great easy readingCute story. Easy going and fast reading. I liked it a lot and made me want to read on the rest of the series.Score: 5/5

All Pro DareAlex and Madison are incredible characters that sizzle to life. Their pasts are very difficult and have dictated how they behave in the present. There are scenes that are so raw and emotional you almost can't breathe. I love Alex and Madison's story!.Score: 5/5

True SportsmanGreat story. All Celebes should be as down to earth as Alex..Score: 5/5

Daring to win her backI wondered about Alex and his playboy ways in Dare to Love and now we get his story and it's a good one. So... what do you do when an injury ends your pro football career? You throw away the girl and hide away from life until your half-brother convinces you to come work for them. There's a catch though. That girl you threw away before, you'll be working on the project with her. This is book two in the Dare To Love series by Carly Phillips. Alex Dare is the half-brother to Ian Dare, whom we got to know in Dare to Surrender. Anyway... Alex agrees to go to work for Ian and vows to make things right with Madison, the girl he threw away, by working with her and winning her back. Madison, the girl, is determined to keep things professional at first. The more time they spend together though, the more she finds herself falling for him and back in his arms. Once they are back together, will a new job offer for Alex and Madison's foster mother's biological son tear them apart once and for all? Both Alex and Madison fight through their issues throughout the book and Ian and Riley make an appearance. You can read this as a stand alone book but I highly recommend Dare To Surrender as a read as well..Score: 4/5

Dare to be originalThis book felt too formulaic for me: the playboy football player, the sincere and beautiful woman who is scorned by him after their affair. Alex changed his viewpoint a little too quickly for believability, and too many of the scenes were too predictable. Add to that an epilogue that screamed Intro to Next Book, and you get a 3-star book. Don't know if I'll bother with the next Dare book..Score: 3/5

Dare to DesireReally enjoyed this book. Sexy, funny with characters you can enjoy reading about. Unfortunately, since the next book is written in first person, I'll be stopping at this part of the series. Disappointing!!.Score: 5/5

Too descriptive sexual contentThis would have been a really good book if it weren't for all the descriptive sexual content. Had to skip over many pages because of all the sexual language. Sheesh. There should be more of a warning. I'm deleting this book..Score: 2/5

Dare to Love Book 2As posted on The Smutty Kitty reviewed by KittyKelly 3.5 out of 5 Licks I am so loving the fact that I got this series for review! Alex is a pretty big douche bag at first. He's a star quarterback and living the lifestyle of a partying bachelor. That all ends when he is injured during a game and has to give up football. Madison knows he is no good for her, but that doesn't stop her from wanting him. Now they are working together and fighting the attraction becomes harder and harder. I was really interested in the program they were trying to build. I found myself thinking about Ian and Riley a lot throughout this one as well. They pop up a few times and I enjoyed the look back. Overall I enjoyed the story and I was pulled in enough to want a happy ending for these two. I am looking forward to more in the series. I have a hard core addiction to series books and there are a lot of family members that need a story in this one!.Score: 4/5

The men of the Dare family are exquisite!!!They were seeing each other until he had an accident on the football field and took a career ending hit. Alex Dare chased everyone away, including Madison Evans. That saying "you don't know what you lost until it's gone" is Alex's mantra. When his brother, Ian, offers him a job working with Madison, he jumps at the chance. He must convince her to give him another chance. With a history of believing she's never good enough for anyone, can she trust in Alex a second time? I loved it! Another great book in the Dare To Love Series. I feel so bad for Madison. The past she's had to endure is heartbreaking. Alex is really trying to be all she wants and needs. He's gorgeous, sexy, and patient with the woman he wants. I loved having Ian and Riley a part of this book. We also got a glimpse of Gabe, who is one of the main characters from the next book in this amazing series. Thank you Carly Phillips for a fantastic read. I look forward to reading more from this fabulous author in the future..Score: 5/5
