A woman who needs to run her own life.
A man who needs to exert control.
Can she surrender to his demands without losing her sense of self once more?
After ending a relationship to a cheating, domineering man, Isabelle Masters takes off in her leased Mercedes, only to be arrested for grand theft and hauled to a local police station. To her surprise, she is rescued by the most unlikely person, Gabriel Dare, a man she’s been attracted to for far too long.
Although Gabe yearns to possess Isabelle, he knows all too well he must fight his primitive need to bind her to him, and instead help bring out the independent woman she yearns to become — or risk losing her for good.
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!
Surrender to your heart
What’s not to love about this book; this couple. Isabelle and Gabe both have trouble trusting, Gabe desires Isabelle unlike any other woman since his wife - no cheating, I promise - the heat between them just rolls off the pages; they will, but when. The sex scenes aren’t the gratuitous, sex just because, it’s the kind to melt your ereader. One touch and Izzy goes weak; Gabe makes her wait for it, but Goddess, it’s so worth it!
Izzy and Gabe are well written, back stories explain their personalities and struggles with trust. I can’t wait to get into Gabe’s siblings stories; Lucy handles the family business on the west coast, and his brother Declan is a cop. I don’t doubt their stories will be just as hot and sexy. I’m going to reread this book, then go for the rest of the series.
