Let’s talk animal magnetism, scorching heat between the sheets, passion off the charts, patience and determination taking the front row, and two amazing people meant to be together, mind, body, and soul!

Julianna Perez has come a long way from being a teenage mother to raising her son single handedly with courage, perseverance and believing in herself. With her son Anthony as her driving force for survival, she works three jobs to make ends meet, and she has completely and solely relied on herself for making a life for herself and her son. Forget about dating or having a relationship for the past ten years, she neither had the time or the desire to think of a man in her life.


For that very reason, Julianna is surprised with her reaction to Cole Carson, quarterback for the Miami Thunders. Cole is the epitome of the perfect athlete with healthy an appetite for play and women. As much as he enjoys the perks of his status, he’s got a heart of gold that goes along with his drop dead gorgeous personality. Lacking no dearth for female company, if a combination of Eva Longoria and Sofia Vergara comes face-to-face, all Carson can do is not to fall at Julianna’s feet and beg her to marry him.

And thus starts a daring game of pursuing the woman of his dreams and giving a chance to the attraction that beguiled him, and a foundation to make a future together. No easy task for Mr. Alpha, as Julianna has her walls up protecting her from repeating past mistakes and terrible pain. Her world revolves around her famous lists and her ten-year old son, a son who is more than happy to share his mother with Cole, doling out her secrets.

The sister duo of Melanie and Shawna have upped their ante delving into the depths of passion and the fire that burns behind closed doors. Lists are made, fantasies are lived, family and friends heal pain, and support and trust gives a chance for that love to bury the insecurities to make a better future. The conclusion to that “Daring Attraction” is pure joy and sensual pleasure! Cole and Julianna have been etched with such perfection, literally feels that you are living their life, right along side with them.
