DARE TO TEMPT by Carly Phillips

Eileen's Thoughts

Damon and Evie’s love story in Dare to Tempt, book two in the Dare Nation series by Carly Phillips is another winner. Ms. Phillips once again gives us an alpha hero who is being set up by someone, sideling him from the sport he loves.


We are then given a strong, diligent, and decisive heroine who is determined to protect herself after being badly hurt by an ex. This breathtakingly beautiful love story contains so many feelings and responsibilities, family, attraction, off the charts sizzling chemistry, inner turmoil, and lots of steamy scenes.


All-star quarterback Damon Prescott needs help to prove his innocence after a random test showed he had been taking performance enhancing drugs and is now on a suspension from the sport and team he loves. His family supports his hiring Evie Wolfe, a no-nonsense, tough private investigator. Evie agrees to pretend to be Damon’s girlfriend and although she knows she is often dismissed by men, she can dress herself up to look not only like Damon’s girlfriend, but play the part quite well; never expecting the sizzling, off the charts electricity and chemistry between them. Having a reputation as a playboy, Damon never expected to find that Evie is everything he needed. After Evie wraps up the case, Damon is hoping to convince her that she’s the only woman for him and to stay with him.


Ms. Phillips wrote a wonderful, emotional and sizzling story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, amusing banter, and charming secondary characters giving Damon and Evie a chance for happiness, love and a future together. I highly recommend Dare to Tempt to other readers and look forward to the next book in this series.
