Posted on


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 Review

Dare To Take is the 9th book in the Dare to Love series, but can be read as a stand-alone. Dare To Take is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Tyler and Ella. Ella has been in love with Tyler for as long as she can remember, so one night she makes a drunken mistake and takes matters into her own hands. Tyler gives into his feelings but quickly realizes that he can’t be what Ella wants. The outcome is not at all what Ella had hoped for…..Now, Ella finds herself in a difficult situation. She’s stranded on an island during a hurricane. And who will come to her rescue? None other than Tyler. For Tyler, seeing Ella again reminds him of the error of his ways and will soon have him fighting for a second chance with Ella. But, is it too late??

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick and easy read for me. The characters were fun and easy to connect with. I loved the angst and push and pull between Ella and Tyler. I appreciated how Ella made Tyler work for her forgiveness and made him see just how much he hurt her. And Tyler….What’s not to love. He is 100% alpha male. He thought he was doing the right thing; that he couldn’t be what Ella needed. But, he soon saw that he needs Ella in his life and would stop at nothing to win her back. And I gotta say, the connection between these two was undeniable. You could just feel the tension oozing off of them. It was a great thing to watch.

Dare To Take was not just a sexy read, but it was also filled with mystery and suspense. I loved trying to figure what was going on and who was after Ella. It made for a very interesting read. This is my first read by this author and she has made a fan out of me. I am looking forward to reading more of her books in the future.
