A second chance could either save him or destroy him…
Wes Cade was born with a competitive streak a mile wide.
Ever since he could walk, he’s made it a point to never lose.
And he never did, until his girlfriend left him senior year of college and his professional golf career tanked.
Over the past four years, Wes has fought to regain his winning edge. The last thing he needs as he prepares for the pro tour is his ex-girlfriend sauntering into the golf shop on the arm of her new fiancé. Then again, this might be his opportunity to win back what he’s lost.
Kaylee doesn't seem the contented fiancée she should be, or the cold-hearted girl who left Wes years ago—and she's hiding a secret. One he’s determined to discover. Because if there's a chance he was wrong about Kaylee and she really had loved him, maybe Wes can break the mental block that’s left him in the rough.
But the rules of golf don’t always apply to love.

Another Cade brother succumbs to love
My thanks to Hidden Gems for the ARC of Daring Wes, and this is a voluntary and independent review. Jules Barnard's Lake Tahoe resort world is yet again the setting for a Cade brother's sexy romance. This time, it's Wes, the golf pro who runs the course and teaches at the brothers' resort. Wes dreamed of playing the professional tour all through his teens. When he met Kaylee in college, he thought his life was perfect. He had the girl and the sport he loved - until she dumped him. His golf game and his life fell apart, and haven't recovered since. Years later, Kaylee shows up in his pro shop looking for golf lessons! Her fiancé wants her to play golf on their honeymoon. Wes and Kaylee have so much unfinished business between them, and a little growing up to do too, before they can decide on future for themselves - and it isn't at all certain they'll be together. Barnard's warm and smooth narrative captures all the anger and angst, as Kaylee and Wes work through their troubles, helped by brothers and friends who know them and want the best for them, and it's a delightful story with the promised HEA Barnard does so well. My only issue was with Kaylee - who has to be the most emotionally clueless and self-involved heroine I've come to dislike. She's one of these people who isn't satisfied. unless she's miserable, and every time Wes gives her what she asks for, she sabotages the good feels and pushes him away. Other readers may not share my opinion, but there it is. 4 stars for a steamy sexy second chance romance.
