Alex loved the game of football and was devastated when his career as a quarterback in the NFL was over. Alex will wonder what his next move was going to be and he will be surprised when his older half brother Ian helps him out. He will be even more surprised that he would be working with Madison who was the only woman he had wanted back in his life.
Madison loved her work but was going in a new direction and was excited to be making a difference. She will be less than thrilled that Alex has joined her team. She had been hurt when he broke things off and she was determined not to give him another shot. Though Madison will find herself giving in as Alex will show that he is not the same man that had broken her heart.
Dare to Desire is the second book to the series Dare to Love by Carly Phillips. I liked this book, I thought this was a good followup from the first book.
So Alex’s character before the accident was a good guy but he was used to the good life that went along with the career. Then when he does have his accident Alex changes into a better man. I liked the change in Alex because it gave him a chance for happiness. With Madison’s character I wanted her to be able to find someone to love and to get past that hurt she had since she was a young girl. It was so sad with what happened when she was a kid. Though Madison will find a foster home where the foster parents will love her like their own, but that will be jeopardized when her foster brother makes trouble although that happens in the present day.
Alex and Madison will have problems in their relationship. It is mostly Madison who does not feel comfortable with the fame that Alex had when in the spotlight. You will want to hit Alex’s agent who will do something underhandedly which creates a potential problem between the two characters.
I will be reading the third book next.
