He’s a smooth talking jock in trouble.
She’s the solution to his problems.
Love is the last thing they expected to find.
Damon Prescott had it all. Star quarterback. Money. Fame.
He’s being accused of taking performance enhancing drugs and banned from the sport and team he loves.
Determined to prove he’s innocent, he hires tough as nails private investigator, Evie Wolfe.
She’s able to bring a man to his knees with a glare, yet sensual in ways that take him off guard – and she’s everything Damon didn’t know he needed.
Evie’s used to men dismissing her, especially playboys like Damon Prescott so she’s not buying the sexual lines he’s trying to sell. She’s with him to do a job, nothing more. But you know what they say about the best laid plans? Sometimes you end up between the sheets with an arrogant football player anyway.
But when the case is over, can Damon convince Evie she’s the only woman for him or will she leave him tied up in love?
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
When a random drug test shows performance-enhancing drugs, Damon Prescott is about to lose all that he has worked for. As the star quarterback sets out to prove that he is being framed, he falls in love with the sexy PI, Evie, working his case.
Dare To Tempt follows Dare To Resist; Quinnlan calls in a favor from her friend Evie to look into her brother-in-law Damon’s situation. Evie and Damon pretend to be dating so that she can try to figure out who may be after him, and it’s not long before the lines blur between the fake relationship and some very real feelings.
Damon and Evie have great banter and chemistry. These two have some ups and downs as they go from pretending to bona fide romance, but it’s a sexy and sweet journey for these two. They don’t really like each other much at first, thanks to some preconceived notions, but it’s a joy to see them discover something unexpected in the other. They both are definitely carrying around their fair share of baggage, and Damon and Evie are a classic case of a commitaphobe being brought to his knees by a smart, strong heroine.
This book is set in the larger Dare family world, so there are some catch-ups with a few of those characters, and we get to know the Prescott siblings more as well. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
