She was off limits,
But he couldn't resist.

There are just some guys you don't touch--even someone as innocent and inexperienced as Ella Shaw knows that. But when her brother's best friend is up for grabs and willing, she can't resist. After all, she's wanted him for years...

On leave from the army, Tyler Dare is just looking for a little fun, but his best friend's sister is off limits. Yet unable to deny how sexy and alluring she is, he finds it all too easy to succumb to a night of passion and heat that ends the next morning in the worst way possible.

Now, Ella is stranded on a tropical island with a hurricane bearing down, and only Tyler can save her. It's his chance to make amends for the past and show the woman he's never forgotten that he's coming after her . . . in more ways than one.

my thoughts

I admit, I was a Carly Phillips virgin before I started DARE TO TAKE, and I must say, I would like MORE please! I was nervous going into this, seeing that this was book #6 in a well established series, but after being assure that it could be read a standalone, I was all in. I agree that DARE TO TAKE can be read as a standalone, however, I can’t help but feel like I would have 5 STARRED this baby if I had a little bit more background with Ella and Tyler. That is not to say, I didn’t enjoy it, because I did. The writing was great. The chemistry between characters was great. The suspense factor gave it just what it needed to keep me hooked. But I like connect 100% with the lead characters, and I feel like I only got to about 80%. It was quite brilliant in a way, because now, I want to start from the beginning of the series and get the full picture on all of these wonderful characters. My TBR just got a whole lot bigger!

Emotions, drama, passion…DARE TO TAKE had it all! I’m in love with my best friend’s brother? HELL YEAH! I love that storyline! It gets me every single time! It always comes off as so forbidden, so the drama continues…when it’s anything but forbidden. It’s sweet! It’s sexy! Its swoon worthy factor is really up there!

Getting to meet the Dare Family was a treat in itself! They seem like a tight-nit group of people who care deeply and love hard. I plan on diving into the rest of this series, because I think there is so much more to learn about them. If you are looking for a sweet romance with all of the feels and the angst, DARE TO TAKE is the next romance read for you. Overcoming the past, and becoming strong together in the present, makes for a beautiful future. Tyler and Ella were great lead characters and the passion they shared for each other easily flew off of the pages, making DARE TO TAKE a love story that will melt your heart and soothe your soul.
