Carly Phillips’s series of the Dare Family is a force to reckon – passionate, intense and sizzling!!!!

Scott Dare and Meg are coming to the stores on April 14, 2015, to set the pages on fire and our hearts fluttering.

TEASER:

“One night.” He reached out and rubbed his thumb across her lower lip.
His touch made her tremble and her nipples tightened into hardened points and the intensity in his gorgeous eyes had need building even stronger inside her.

“Is that what you want too?” he asked again, his gaze hot on hers.

His distinctive scent, a hint of musk she associated with Scott alone, filled her nostrils. Her stomach fluttered and the desire to wrap herself around him and take what he offered built until it was a tangible thing, living and breathing inside her tightly strung body.

She nodded, unable to speak. Her throat had grown too dry.

“I need you to say it.”

Say what? She didn’t remember his question. Only the thought of letting him into her apartment … into her body filled her mind and her senses.

A low rumble sounded from deep inside his chest. “Say … I want you, Scott. I need the words or I’ll send you inside alone.”

“I want you, Scott.” The words tumbled out, an easy capitulation that had been anything but. Another Meg Thompson decision she feared would alter the course of her life. And she was powerless to stop it.

I like when writers test the boundaries of their creativity. Venturing into areas they may not be sure yet brave enough to test the waters. Something for readers to be receptive to their favorite authors and enjoy the shades of their writings.

Carly Phillip did warn her readers as she “Dared To Submit” her fourth book in The Dare Series, with BDSM elements and it rolled off with a flourish. It was erotic, sensual and sizzling, but in no way offensive, crude or abusive. In fact it gave the characters a depth of enrichment and an aura of completeness.

DareToSubmit4-CarlyPhillips-Sept2014

Decklan Dare is the cousin from the NY side of the Dare family and brother of Gabe Dare (Dare To Surrender). A NY cop, Decklan thrives on control of his life and emotions. He understands the loss of loved ones, and does not want to ever lose himself to emotions of pain, hurt and betrayal, ever. As much as he is a dominant, he has a heart of gold and never would hurt a single soul. Compassionate, protective and all alpha, he falls for Amanda and her vulnerability.

Amanda Collins takes one look at Decklan in a BDSM club and knew she was in serious trouble. Not into relationships, she gets off her urges under the disguise of submissive role-playing. Holding a great job as an assistant to her best friend in Washington who happens to be gay and role-playing as his girlfriend for public appearances, she takes on Decklan with no strings attached. 

But love finds a way through their hearts and before long, they fall in love with each other, yet not confessing to their feelings and skirting around any commitment. Carly did a fabulous job of portraying Decklan and Amanda with their insecurities and hang-ups. With sizzling chemistry between them, Dare to Submit is a passionate ride of testing sexual boundaries, tenderness and love, support and commitment. It’s a Carly Phillips story of humor, charm and wit, with a healthy dose of carnal sensuality.

Received a copy from Netgalley for an honest review. 

Families are made not with blood but with love. This has been my belief and shall remain so. Having said that, being adopted, or coming to know of another family that shares your father or mother, is a hardball to swallow. It creates lot of angst, bitterness, hurt and insecurities that need to be resolved before acceptance and forgiveness can make the truth a bit easy to live.

ImageIan Dare is no exception and neither is his stepbrother Alex Dare. Realizing the existence of a second family, by his father had made Ian a hard nut to crack. But then all it takes is one life-changing incident to bring both the families together, on a truce. And all it takes is for Riley to waltz into Ian’s life on his stepbrother’s arm and he wants her in his arms and in his life.

“Dare To Love” was my first book of Carly Phillips and I fell in love with her and the Dare family! Two stubborn individuals and one fiery ride! Riley and Ian have a tough time reconciling to their insecurities and a past that is unpleasant. It is a heartwarming and sizzling journey of passion and love, realization of priorities and trust, taking a step towards a future that is more important than anything else, and to be able to trust each other with that future.

Her second book in the series, “Dare To Desire” went beyond my expectations. In fact it was more electrifying and mesmerizing. I loved Alex, arrogant with a sweet heart, and totally in love with Madison, Riley’s friend. Their journey was more a fast paced thrill of a ride of football and media frenzy, injuries and career ending decisions, a frenzy of lust and love and of second opportunities and opening doors for the less fortunate. Touching other people’s heart, giving them a reason to live, supporting the fallen with a kind gesture, encouraging to go through windows opened– Carly got me by the heart on this!Image

Carly touches a sensitive subject of abandonment in Dare To Desire, and Madison is right in the middle of it. But it was dealt with empathy and a lot of insight. This part of Madison’s life is one of the most emotional and heart-wrenching realities of her present and she constantly struggles to find a balance. I loved Alex for his attention and support for Madison. It was beautifully penned by Carly and I cried reading the conversation between Madison and her mother.

One of my favorite writers 🙂
