Dare to Seduce

Dare to SeduceMax 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.

No Strings Attached

No Strings AttachedTasha Riordan went wild seven years ago with a man who turned out to be a drug dealer and because of circumstances she was thrown in jail for two days in the Bahamas. Now seven years later she will find that he is a half brother to her friends boyfriends. Not able to trust this man she keeps him at a distance but the chemistry is still there to tempt them back together.

Luc Bradshaw was a DEA agent and was undercover. During his stay in the Bahamas he finds a woman he wants and connects with. When he leaves for a meeting he will find her disappeared. Seven years later he will find the woman and see that she is not happy to see him. Luc will find out the reason and understand and hope to start again but he first has to get her trust again.

No Strings Attached is the third book to the Razor Bay/Bradshaw Brothers by Susan Andersen. I liked the book and thought it went well with the series. You are drawn into the plot and even though elements of the book are predictable I was enjoying the story.

The chemistry is steamy between Tasha and Luc and always will be it seems but it bugged me that Tasha would just give in. She had seven years to get over those two days and she kind of had but it seems that she holds quite a grudge with Luc and then she falls back into bed. Well it is not that simple as she does make peace with him but with the amount of anger she had you would think it would take some more time. But I really did like Tasha because she was a determined and kind person who was doing what she needed to do. Luc was the same way, a little more cocky with his attitude, but a good guy. I did like that they were able to get that second chance as I wanted them to be happy.

There was no real villain except who ever put Tasha in that prison and that does get solved. Basically the person was an ass and making sure that she would not get in the way. I was happy that the person who did that to Tasha was finally called out for it and gave closure for them.

Will this be the last of the series or will there be another half siblings out there that is a Bradshaw?
