Isabelle Masters is done...
Done with her cheating boyfriend.
Done with his domineering ways.
Taking off in her leased Mercedes to start over turns out to be the best decision she's ever made — despite being arrested for grand theft auto and hauled off to a local police station. Being rescued by the most unlikely person possible, Gabriel Dare, makes it all worthwhile. After all, she's yearned for the sexy man for years—yet now is her chance to finally take the plunge and dare to become the independent woman she's always wanted to be. But can she be in control of her life if she surrenders to a man like him?
Dare to Surrender
Carly Phillips writes another amazing story! Gabe and Isabelle manage to find love after both having bad relationships. Gabe is a man who wants to take care of those he loves. Isabelle is a woman that needs someone to show her what love is. These two together make a perfect pair!
I am hooked on the Dare men (and women) and can't wait to get more books in this series.
I have been a Carly Phillips fan since I discovered her years (maybe 13) ago. When I pick up a Carly Phillips novel I know I am going to get a great read, with strong characters and sexy goodness! The Dare to Love series has been no exception! Even though Dare to Surrender is the third book in the Dare to Love series, you are able to read and enjoy it without reading any books in this series. Dare to Surrender is an off-shoot of the series introducing us to the Dare cousins and written in the first person, which is unusual for Carly Phillips and quite enjoyable!
In Dare to Surrender we get to dive into Gabe's story. Gabe is a strong, alpha personality that knows exactly what he wants and is willing to wait for it. Gabe's character was a refreshing change from the typical domineering alpha males out there in the book world, while he likes control, he also needs to take care of people. He soft side is what won me over in the beginning and as a reader I liked knowing exactly where his heart was the entire story. Isabelle was a great compliment to Gabe. She needed someone to show her she was worthy of love and get her to open up. Watching Gabe and Isabelle fall into love was sweet, hot and definitely worth staying up late to devour their story in one sitting!
Dare to Surrender is a quick, fast paced read that gives you everything you want with enough heat to keep you blushing. My only wish was that we got to experience a bit more of Eden. I felt like Carly Phillips skirted the edge of some light BDSM and I (personally) would have love to see more of that! However, I couldn't put this book down, it was perfect for an evening escape into a great romance. I love a good series and Carly Phillips looks like she is doing it once again with another great addition to the Dare to Love series! I am hooked on the Dare men (and women) and can't wait to get more books in this series.
If you are a fan of Carly Phillips, then Dare to Surrender will be an extra sexy reward at the end (or beginning) of your day! Never read a Carly Phillips book? Then you are in for a treat! 1-click Dare to Surreneder and let Gabe whisk you away to Eden!
Gabriel is swoon worthy!!!
Isabelle left a bad relationship and drove away in her baby Benz. The she got arrested for grand theft auto. Lance, her ex, dropped the charges and took back the car she thought belonged to her. Who should come to her rescue at the police station but her long time crush Gabriel Dare. They started seeing each other. She soon realized he wanted more than she was ready to give and he wasn't ready to let her all the way in. So, she left. Three months later Lucy Dare, Gabe's sister, presented Isabelle with an offer too good to pass up. Interior design in a club, on a private island called Eden.
Gabriel Dare is swoon worthy. That take charge attitude of his is ultra sexy! He can rescue me ANY day. For being such an Alpha man and we all know they have to have things their way, Gabriel has a tremendous amount of patience. He gives Isabelle three months to find herself before he can't stand it any more and makes his move. They are so in-tune with each other, it's enviable.
Fantastic story! I can't wait for the next book in this amazing series by this equally amazing author.
