He’s a smooth talking jock in trouble.
She’s the solution to his problems.
Love is the last thing they expected to find.
Damon Prescott had it all. Star quarterback. Money. Fame. Now? He’s being accused of taking performance enhancing drugs and banned from the sport and team he loves.
Determined to prove he’s innocent, he hires tough as nails private investigator, Evie Wolfe. She’s able to bring a man to his knees with a glare, yet sensual in ways that take him off guard - and she’s everything Damon didn’t know he needed.
Evie’s used to men dismissing her, especially playboys like Damon Prescott so she’s not buying the sexual lines he’s trying to sell. She’s with him to do a job, nothing more. But you know what they say about the best laid plans? Sometimes you end up between the sheets with an arrogant football player anyway.
But when the case is over, can Damon convince Evie she’s the only woman for him or will she leave him tied up in love?
A stand-alone novel.
Sport star needs a PI
I love Carly Phillips’ writing style. the characters and setting of her stories are brought to life and grow in depth as the story unfolds. Brought together out of the need for Evie’s PI skills, Damon get a chance to learn more about a woman who sparks his interest. Professional athletes testing positive for banned substances face immediate consequences. Proving he was set up means hiring Evie to dig around for answers. Having her act as his girlfriend is the easiest way to introduce her to his world. Is it real or not, only time will show them both what lies ahead for them. A great addition to the Dare Nation series.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Dare To Tempt
This is second in the Dare Nation series and is a enemies to lovers story. The main characters are Damian Prescott and Evie Wolf. Damian is a professional football player trying to clear his name of a false performance enhancing test and Evie is the private investigator hired to prove he was set up. She is also the best friend of his brother’s girlfriend which helps to complicate matters. I liked that Evie had some sass but was also a vulnerable woman especially when it came to men, her ex in particular. Her ex made her second guess all her relationships and second guess Damian’s true feelings for her. I love that we get a chance to continue to hear about the previous characters and keep abreast of their lives. A great addition to the series.
I received a copy from the author for an honest review.
