Publisher Description

Austin Moore found his purpose in the military, but there was always something missing. He wanted what everyone in his family had…someone to call his own. But his life didn’t make it easy to find a soul mate, someone to be his forever.


Sage Hill enlisted to follow in the footsteps of her father, but never wanted to be in his shadow. And when her friend ditches her at a dive bar, she catches the eye of a handsome stranger. But Sage doesn’t have time for relationships, nor does she want the complication.


When Sage is stuck, Austin tries to be her saving grace and a challenge leads to a lip lock neither one of them can forget. She swore she’d never fall for a strong and bossy man like her father, but she soon learns there’s more than meets the eye underneath that sexy exterior. 


Part of this book was previously released as the book Fearless. Much of the content has been changed and over 100 pages of new material has been added.

Dare is part of the Men of Inked world.

Austin and Sage ❤️

4.75 stars

The Gallos are back with the fourteenth book in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series and it gives readers Austin’s story. Any time with the Gallos, you know you are in for in for some fun and ribbing. Austin is Pike’s younger brother who has grown up to be a Navy Seal who comes and goes depending on his missions. Sage has recently enlisted in the Navy continuing her family’s military tradition. Deciding to have a little fun before her first deployment, Sage and a friend head to a biker bar where Sage is unceremoniously ditched. Not one to let things bother her, she continues drinking when Austin approaches. Sage is not interested in the attention and proceeds to leave only to discover her car is on the fritz. Once again, Austin comes to the rescue...whether wanted or not. The banter between them is spicy and keeps the pages turning. At certain times, it seemed like Austin would not take a hint which only made things better. Even though their time together was short, their feelings kept growing the more time they spent together, making it feel like instalove but when you know, you know. Overall, this is one emotional storyline that proves family is not just blood but those people that you choose to have in your life making it brighter.

I loved Austin and Sage's story! Both in the military and meeting at a dive bar one night, Austin helps Sage and a friendship blooms. They were a fun couple that came with plenty of drama and an injury that had them making some hard decisions. Austin is Pike's younger brother and although not a "Gallo" he has a found family in the Gallos. I enjoy this family so much and it's always great being back in their world. Dare is a book you don't want to miss in this series, and it's the last one for this side of the Gallo second generation. Looking forward for what's to come with the Southside Gallos.

A daring conclusion to an awesome series!!

𝗪𝗶𝗹𝗱 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗬𝗼𝘂 is the first book in the new Wilds of Montana series by Kristen Proby, featuring an engaging small town romance for Erin Montgomery and Remington Wild. Erin has finally found her place in the Bitterroot Valley where she can build a life away from the pressure and wealth of her famous family. She loves the small town vibe and kind people. When she finds herself in need of a second job, she agrees to be a part-time nanny for Remington Wild, the grumpy rancher she has served coffee almost every day. The more time Erin spends with Remington and his two kids, the more she falls for all of them. Eventually secrets from Erin’s past come out, and danger follows her to Montana. Can the new relationship survive?

As a huge fan of the With Me in Seattle and Single in Seattle series, I was thrilled to dive into Erin’s story!! Erin and Remington’s relationship had the perfect blend of sweet and spicy moments, and their banter was fun. The world building was top notch with the Wild family being full of compelling characters, as well as the rest of the town. It’s definitely going to be an entertaining series going forward. The kids were beyond adorable, the family bond was heartwarming, and the way they accepted Erin was awesome. I LOVED getting to see Erin’s family, and the way their dynamic was similar to the Wild’s. The suspense plot was intriguing and twisted in a way that had me questioning my own suspicions.😂

I listened to the audio version narrated by Emma Wilder and Sebastian York, who both did a fabulous job bringing all the characters to life, which I’m sure is no easy task, when you have two families plus a small town! They were able to flow from banter to passion to emotion to suspense, or even jump from a child voice to a much older character with ease. Let’s be honest, I could listen to Sebastian York all day long!😆

What a great way to start a new series! I can’t wait for the next one!!
