Dare to Desire

Dare to DesireAlex 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.

The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed

The Wrong Billionaire's BedAudrey Petty has loved Cade since she was young but he never saw her more than a sister. She hoped that spending time together would change that but she will have a distraction. The distraction is the playboy Reese whose goal was to annoy her. Audrey put up with his annoyance but when things started to get heated she will finally give into temptation.

The Wrong Billionaire’s Bed is the third book to the series Billionaire Boys Club by Jessica Clare. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Audrey was very professional and strict with herself which I didn’t really mind though you wanted to at times shake her, so that she would wake up. I actually thought it was good that she was so responsible because it was needed. What she needed to learn though was when to walk away from her troubled sister. I have to say that when she got flirty with Reese I was cheering for them. I liked Cade but he was too much like Audrey. There was no real spark, now with Reese it was like an explosion of fire between them. With Reese being the playboy of the group you knew that things would get heated. I liked Reese. He sometimes went a little too far but then you are surprised by his action that shows you he is a good guy.

So the character of Daphne was annoying and sad at the same time. She will be in the last one book. I don’t know how I feel about that. I am sure that she could change but will she or will she continue to be selfish. My guess is continuing to be self destructive but I will see when I read the six book. Personally I don’t want Cade to be with Daphne because he would give into Daphne way to easily.

Well in order to get to the six book I will have to get through the fourth and fifth book. I will be reading the fourth book next.
