#Review Dare to Take by @carlyphillips

Dare To Take (Dare to Love Book 6)
Carly Phillips
Release: May 3, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Review - 5 Stars!

 Carly Phillips was one of the very first romance authors I had the pleasure of reading. It’s been a long time now and still, every single book makes me want to go back and read them all again. I was so in love with her Hot Zone series, but I’m having a hard time deciding if I love The Dares even more! She knows how to write characters that inspire emotion and whether good or bad, the reader needs to connect to the characters.

This book is a standalone in an interconnected series. I do recommend you read them all though, simply because they are so good!

The backstory for both of the main characters was a little heartbreaking. Ella and Tyler have suffered quite a bit at the hands of their parents, and their history together is rocky, at best. But, the chemistry is undeniable and whereas before, they were young and vulnerable, now they are mature adults, who know how to hide that vulnerability behind solid walls.

It seems almost like a tradition for the Dare men to chase their women and I have to say, I much prefer it to the other way around. I love seeing their soft sides mixed with the delicious alpha. Tyler has a skewed version of his own actions growing up, some of it brought on by heavy guilt, and yet, he explores the idea of being with Ella much quicker than she does. In fact, she only sees that as an unattainable dream, no matter how much Tyler tries to prove otherwise.

Ella’s need to “fix” herself before she can truly commit to Tyler is admirable, but I have to say, I’ve always felt that one can find themselves even easier when they have someone to lean on and support them through the process. Never the less, the fact that she makes the attempt to conquer her issues is a big step.

I fell hard for these two, individually, and as a couple. They burn hot and I had to stop and find a fan from time to time! Ok, not really, but I seriously thought about it. ;) 

This book definitely makes my multiple re-read shelf. Another 5 star addition to Carly’s amazing line of books!
