She was off limits, 
But he couldn't resist. 

There are just some guys you don't touch--even someone as innocent and inexperienced as Ella Shaw knows that. But when her brother's best friend is up for grabs and willing, she can't resist. After all, she's wanted him for years... 

On leave from the army, Tyler Dare is just looking for a little fun, but his best friend's sister is off limits. Yet unable to deny how sexy and alluring she is, he finds it all too easy to succumb to a night of passion and heat that ends the next morning in the worst way possible. 

Now, Ella is stranded on a tropical island with a hurricane bearing down, and only Tyler can save her. It's his chance to make amends for the past and show the woman he's never forgotten that he's coming after her . . . in more ways than one.

Dare to Take was such a sweet, sexy and romantic reading journey! Carly Phillips is an author that I had on my TBR list, but with so many titles available I had no clue where to start. I have heard great things about her writing style and how her books leave you with a big smile on your face and a happy heart. Dare to Take might have been my first book from Carly Phillips, but trust me when I say that it won't be my last! 

Dare to Take is the final installment of the Dare to Love series. In this book, we follow Ella Shaw and Tyler Dare. Ella has always had a little something for her best friends brother. Whenever Tyler is around, sparks fly between them. Years have passed since that night that left Ella crushed and Tyler with regrets. The years might have passed, but the chemistry between Ella and Tyler is stronger than ever. Danger is lurking around Ella and Tyler is the only one that can keep her safe. As days go by, Ella and Tyler's feelings for each other grow. Tyler is determined to have Ella by his side. He will do whatever it takes to win her heart. Will Ella and Tyler be able to forget the past and give love a second chance?

This was such an enjoyable reading journey! Ella and Tyler were great characters. Their chemistry was extremely hot and their banter simply addictive! It was an easy story to follow that left me turning the pages until the very end! After reading the first chapter, I knew that I was going to love this book! Ella and Tyler had things to clear up about what happened between them in the past. Ella's life has never been easy. She has always wanted someone who would love her unconditionally. Tyler is not ready to commit and the feelings he has for Ella scare him. He wants her safe and happy and he's not sure he can be that person who could love her unconditionally. The more time they spend together, the more his feelings toward Ella grow into an all-consuming love. He's ready to give love a chance and Ella is the one he wants forever.

Even if I did not read the other installments in this series, I absolutely loved all of the Dare siblings! This book gave me the chance to get to know the Dare family a little better. I have added all the other books in this series to my TBR list. I want to fall in love with each character just like I did with Ella and Tyler! If you are looking for a romance that will deliver a wonderful reading journey with a beautiful HEA, I highly recommend this book! Carly Phillips' writing style is captivating and it will leave you turning those page until the very end!


I give, Dare to Take, by Carly Phillips, 4 sexy, sweet, romantic, second chance at love stars!
