Dare to Live

Maybe opposites do attract.
Kody Maxwell’s life has been rooted in grief and death. He tasted love briefly until the girl he loved died suddenly. Determined not to experience that kind of pain again, Kody prefers being alone and writing music. His life goal is to sign with a big-name producer who will take his music to the next level. But lately, he’s been struggling with writer’s block until he encounters a beautiful nurse with the voice of an angel. She brings out feelings he hasn’t experienced in a long time, and that scares the crap out of him. Still, he knows he can’t let her get away. She may have just what he needs to get his juices flowing. 
Motorcycle-riding Jessie Ryan loves the thrill of danger and the exhilarating desire for speed. She plays by her own set of rules. But when she discovers she carries the breast cancer gene on the same day she meets the most gorgeous man she’s ever laid eyes on, she isn’t prepared to face what the future may hold.
As Jessie and Kody begin to form a bond, they learn things about each other and themselves they didn’t see coming. Will they dare to live when fear threatens to stop them?

Dare to Live can be read as a stand alone. Intended for adult audiences.

Customer Reviews

A must read for everyone!!

I have read each of the Dare to books and I have always said that Dare to Kiss was my favorite. After reading Kody’s story in Dare to Live I have to change my response and say that Dare to Live is my absolute favorite. Kody’s story was an emotional one that I sort of wish didn’t have to end. I get like that when I read an excellent book that I have fallen in love with.

I thought this book was well written. Dare to Live had my emotions all over the place. I cried and was mad at times while reading! I give this book 5 gold stars. If I could give more I would. Thank you Susan for writing this book and giving life to Kody’s story. I truly enjoyed reading this book, as I have all the other books you have written.

Dare to Live

I loved this story! I love the whole Maxwell family! They love hard. Once you get their love you have it forever!

I’ve been looking forward to Kody’s book since I first read Dare to Kiss. Something about his story spoke to me. He was such a young kid with so much heartache. He was different than his brothers which made him stand out to me!!!

Kody has his faults and he did piss me off in this book. To the point where I wanted to jump into the book and shake the hell out of him. Though I do love who put him in his place better!!

Jessie is a strong, determined woman. She is dealt a crappy hand but to doesn’t let it get her down. She’s determined to do something to make it better. She’s afraid to fall so watching her open her heart is heartwarming!

This is another amazing story in the Maxwell Brothers series. I’m so sad that it’s the last one. But I’m hoping we get some spinoff stories. Especially Hunt, Roxanne, Lowell and Mack!!! Hopefully I’m not asking too much.


Absolutely loved this book! Another phenomenal book by S.B. Alexander. This is the fifth book in the Maxwell Series. Dare to Live was a well-written easy read. I love her writing style and how she can captivate you to keep reading. This story follows Kody Maxwell in his journey to overcome grief and a past that haunts him to find his true love. Jessie Ryan is a daredevil wanting to feel the wind in her hair and a complete opposite from Kody. Finding a common ground and daring to live brings the two together. An amazing read and definitely recommend this book and series! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
