Levi Kincaid liked control in his everyday life and especially in the bedroom. He will find his world getting twisted around when he meets Sarah. He will want her more than any woman he ever had and he will protect her at all cost.
Sarah Robins was on the run from her ex-boyfriend and the cult that had taken her in. She was trying to get her life together when Levi shows up in her life. She knows that nothing can come of a relationship but Sarah will give in anyways.
Dirty Sexy Cuffed is the third book to the series Dirty Sexy by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde. This was another book to the series that was very enjoyable. These books for me are very quick reads. I will say that I wouldn’t have minded a little more on the cult aspect. I think it would have added a little more to the story.
Levi’s character thrived in life with control. He avoided anything that would make him lose his control. I liked that with Sarah in his life he was letting go. Levi’s dominant control was always going to be there but he was softening. Sarah’s character was a young woman who needed help but she was too proud to ask and weary of strangers. I liked that Sarah was able to take a chance with Levi though he had to work hard to gain her trust.
This series has one more book which will be about Clay’s twin brother. I am thinking that this brother will be a surprise to the others as throughout the last three books no twin brother had been mentioned. I am reading Dirty Sexy Sinner next.
Mason Kincaid was ready for a hookup in Las Vegas but that will be stopped when he finds his best friend dancing on a bar. Mason will take Katerina away from the bar and before he could stop himself he will make his move. The move will change everything between them and will have Mason thinking of his future.
Katerina Sands has loved her best friend since she had met him. She never thought it would come of anything but with a one night stand everything changes. Katerina knows she had to distance herself but will be surprised when Mason doesn’t allow it.
Dirty Sexy Inked is the second book to the Dirty Sexy series by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde. I really enjoyed this book, possibly more than the first book, but to be fair the brothers are all very different with their personalities. What pulled me into the story was without a doubt the characters of Mason and Katerina.
Mason’s character was what you would considered a manwhore and he was very good at it. He was also crude and did whatever the hell he wanted. I liked when as the reader you got to read his thoughts, without those thoughts I don’t know if I would really love Mason. Because of those parts I wanted Mason to find that love he was afraid to reach for. I wanted him to be courageous and declare himself to Katerina. Mason will have you swooning when he steps up. Now Katerina’s character had my heart breaking for what had happened to her years ago. Mason and Katerina were very similar with a crappy childhood. I liked that Katerina moved on with her life and was making the best of the situation. What I didn’t like was she was sitting on the sideline and getting her heart broken every time that Mason was with another woman. I wanted her to tell him how she felt.
I am getting addicted to this series and will be reading the third book next.
Clay Kincaid helped those who needed it, but he didn’t like being acknowledge for his good deed. He will find another woman to help but something about Samantha will have him wanting more.
Samantha Jamieson had enough of her controlling parents. She wanted a way out so she ran away from home hoping that she could experience life. She will get some help from Clay.
Dirty Sexy Saint is the first book to the series Dirty Sexy by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde. I really enjoyed this first book to the series, it stayed true to its title. I had read some of Carly Phillips but I really fell in love with her writing when I read the Dare to Love series.
Clay’s character was certainly a saint when helping others but he was more a sinner when it came to women. Clay had a bad childhood but despite it all he wanted to tried to help those around him. I liked that he gave Samantha a chance even though he knew that she didn’t belong, which will in turn help her make a decision. Samantha’s character was a very privileged woman. She had everything she wanted except for freedom. I liked that she wanted a way out. She wanted to be her own person, not just a member of her family. She might not have excelled perfectly at the new job but she was excited to learn.
Her family were a bit much with wanting to keep her in that perfect life they had planned out for her. I did like that not all was lost for Samantha to have a relationship with her family.
Tyler Dare wanted to do his job but when his sister ask him to help Ella he has no choice but to say yes. For years Tyler tried to put distance between him and Ella but now he is wondering if he should close that distance.
Ella Shaw had wanted Tyler as long as she remembered, but he had broken her heart. Ella will be cautious when she lets Tyler back into her life. She tries to keep things light between them but she will not be able to control how her heart feels.
Dare to Take is the sixth book to the series Dare to Love by Carly Phillips. I really liked this story. This series is very fast paced and easy to read which for me is because of these characters.
Tyler’s character takes everything onto himself. He doesn’t ask for help even though he really needs it. I liked that Tyler will finally get it and he will be changing. Ella’s character was a girl who felt like she was worthless. She had come from little and because of disappointments in her life it left her self-esteem very low. This effected her but it didn’t consume her. Though when it came to a relationship with Tyler it made her wary, but he will also help show Ella that she is a strong woman. I will say that it will be Ella who takes that final step, which I liked.
The chemistry between Tyler and Ella is of course explosive. I wanted them together but I wanted Tyler to stop being scared and running from what he wanted. Every time he ran from Ella he hurt her that much more.
So, the father, Robert Dare, really disappointed me. This is a spoiler alert. If you don’t want to know what Robert Dare did stop reading now. I had thought Robert Dare made progress with getting along with Avery but in this book Tyler will find his father with another woman. So Robert Dare is now cheating on his present wife, Savannah. You also learn that Tyler had learned about his father’s cheating with Savannah when he was 14 and was told by his father to keep quiet. His father obviously wants Tyler to do the same. Now I don’t know if he would be the best person to confess to Savannah, a part of me doesn’t want him to since Savannah was the one who helped break up his family. In the book Tyler will tell his mother but nothing gets resolved. I suppose that it will in the next books.
I am looking forward to reading the next book and finding out which sibling will be written about next.
Max has wanted Lucy for years and he will finally make a move at her brothers wedding. Max knows that he will be able to seduce Lucy and he will do what he can to hold on to her, to show her that they belonged together.
Lucy has wanted Max for years but she closed her heart for him when he had married another. She will find herself then taking a chance when Max pushes for more.
Dare to Seduce is the third book to the series NY Dare to Love by Carly Phillips. I liked the book.
Lucy’s character was like her brothers in regards to being very guarded and damaged from their past. I felt that Lucy was even more so because of her age. Lucy drew away from people to protect herself from further hurt. I liked that she gave a chance to finding something with Max even though she wasn’t completely committed. Max’s character was another dominant man. I thought with how Max was acting this book would be going towards the darker side of BSMD but it didn’t. Well Max was probably rougher than all the men though I was okay with that as it was not in the whole book. I liked that Phillips focused on Max and Lucy who yes had that chemistry but they were also damaged due to their past.
Carly Phillips next book to the Dare to Love series is out but before I read that book I am moving on to a couple other authors, then coming back to the book.
Decklan wanted no relationship which is what he found. Though he will be distracted by one woman that he wanted to have a night with. Decklan will force himself to stay away because he knew that he would want more, but he will go against his gut feeling and get Amanda.
Amanda had been looking for something at the club but she had little luck. Then she will see Decklan and know he would be the one to satisfy her. Amanda knew the moment she had him she would want more which made her wary. Though before Amanda knew it a relationship had started to form, but she knew it could not last.
Dare to Submit is the second book to the series NY Dare to Love by Carly Phillips. Well as I noted on the first book that the series would go towards dom and sub, and in this one it happened. I was happy to read that again it wasn’t to hurt each other. I guess its a lighter version of it and I was happy for that. I actually really did like the story. I thought the plot was more towards the characters which I liked. Phillips got into their past which I found interesting as the past shaped who they were. Well asides from the interesting characters there was a lot of sex, and I mean a lot. I was kind of wondering for a while if that was all there was going to be, but as I said Phillips creates an interesting plot with her characters.
So Decklan’s character is without a dom and he likes control. He doesn’t want a relationship which would leave to more. He doesn’t want to feel emotionally for any of the woman he has sex with. Though Decklan will take a chance when he goes after her. His past is tragic with his parents dying in a car accident which leaves him vulnerable as he is out of control. He takes control when he is a dom and it is intense. Amanda’s character is without doubt a sub. She is craving for someone to control her and she finds that with Decklan though her life is complicated. First of all she is a mess with insecurities that will make you very angry at her mother’s treatment of Amanda. That treatment really did a number on Amanda. For Amanda, she doesn’t want a relationship. Decklan and Amanda would be perfect for each other as neither want a relationship but as they are very compatible, they want more from each other. The reason for Amanda not being able to have a relationship made sense but it was an unfair situation.
For the couple to find happiness with each other there is a lot they have to work through, and it will happen. Of course there will be a big unexpected problem that happens that threw me at the end. Phillips throws in a little action and danger towards the end.
I am reading the third and I think final book from the New York Dare’s.
Gabriel had wanted Isabella the moment he saw her but he did not take her because she was in a relationship. With her free Gabe will do what he can to entice Isabella to him.
Isabella had to get out of her relationship and she was able to but she soon found that she had no where to go. Isabella will be rescued by Gabe, the only man that had her feeling more. She wanted to take a chance with Gabe but she had to fix herself first.
Dare to Surrender is the first book to the NY Dare to Love series by Carly Phillips. I had finished the other series, well I finished all the books that were available to read, and decided I wanted more. So after reading several other books I am back with the author and I will have to say that this was really good. I think that this series will be more steamy than the other, although the others were very steamy. My thinking is because of the titles, Dare to Surrender, Dare to Submit, and Dare to Seduce. Well after reading this book I would say that the books will more than likely go into the route of dominant and submissive. I will be okay with that but I really don’t want to read about the characters really hurting each other because they feel pleasure in that.
Well like I said above this verges on the dom and sub but it wasn’t that bad. Gabe’s character liked control and it seemed that Isabella like to be submissive even if she didn’t really know it. What I liked about the book was Gabe did not force anything on Isabella. He made it all her decision, well he will be persuasive but ultimately it is her decision. Isabella’s character had lost herself in her previous relationship. I liked that she finds herself again which made her more confident. She gets her job back and little by little she is the person she had been before.
