Evie and Damon had chemistry even when they were bantering back and forth trying to put a shield around their feelings! I haven’t read a book this fast in a while! These two were just delicious to read and I honestly felt attached to the story because it wasn’t far-fetched at all. I know, I know … shenanigans lol but I don’t use that word in a negative way. Yes, there is a lot going on in the book, but it all blended very well together and did not bog the story down or make it OTT. It was quite relatable, in fact. This book ticked all the right romance fiction boxes for me. I felt close to the characters and could relate to them, the story was entertaining and held my attention, and it had a perfect blend of sexy and emotion!

    Damon Prescott is part of such a big family, I don’t even know how they know who is who 😊 Damon is a star pro quarterback and after he gets a terrible concussion during one of his games, a random team drug test shows a positive result and now not just does he have a concussion but his been suspended for from playing football plus people think he takes drugs.

And why would someone set him up like thi Damon Prescott is part of such a big family, I don’t even know how they know who is who 😊 Damon is a star pro quarterback and after he gets a terrible concussion during one of his games, a random team drug test shows a positive result and now not just does he have a concussion but his been suspended for from playing football plus people think he takes drugs. He knows he doesn’t take drugs but how can he prove it when the evidence is there for all to see. And why would someone set him up like this?? Evie Wolfe is a private investigator, with 4 brothers. When her best friend Quinn asks her to help her soon to be brother in law prove that someone set him up, the only solution is to pose as Damon’s girlfriend to get closer to the people in his life. Let’s just hope she remembers its just pretend. Adding into all this chaos her ex shows up and things seem to be getting a bit out of control. Adding in that she might be attracted to Damon more than she wants to be. But how can she trust another man after what her ex did to her, and especially a playboy quarterback. I loved the chemistry between Damon and Evie and their back and forth banter and the flirting was just too good. I loved that even though it was a ‘pretend’ relationship, Damon was all in right from the get go. Both characters had their own difficulties, but I liked that even though it was pretend they were stronger and better together and Evie definitely changed the playboy’s ways ❤ 😊 Reviewed on behalf of Fay's Corner

    Each Dare Nation book I read just keeps getting better and Dare To Tempt was no exception! This book was sexy, suspenseful, drama and witty banter so how could you go wrong..... you can't! Damon and Evie's relationship may have started out fake but it definitely ended with so much more because Damon was determined to get the girl and prove he wasn't just the playboy he was made out to be. If you've enjoyed the Dare Nation series so far then you will absolutely love this book!

    Dare To Tempt is the second book in the Dare Nation series by Carly Phillips. Each book is a stand-alone so you can simply dive into this one.

This is the second time in the same week where the secondary couple ruins the book for me. It's getting annoying. Throughout the book, it was obvious that Jaxon and Macy were going to be the main couple of the next book and I wanted to see where things were going to go because Jaxon kept expressing his interest in Macy. Then in the epilogue, we learn that the day before he slept with another woman and it ruined the mood for me. I hate it when the hero is flirting with the heroine and then goes and sleeps with someone else. I had a similar issue with another CP book recently and the only certain thing is that I am not going to touch Jaxon's book. Up to that point, I loved that I was reading and the main couple was great. Evie and Damon worked for me so well and Evie is a badarse. I would have liked a little more loving Damon, a Damon who showed his appreciation of her more, but overall, I was happy with both of them. There are a lot of things going on and there wasn't a dull moment in the book. I would recommend it!

And now his sister has the brilliant idea for her best friend and soon to be sister-in-law, tomboyish to the extreme, pose as his girlfriend to investigate?! Not, nope, no. Until she shows up looking like his dream come true in heels and a slinky dress. Boy did he have her pegged wrong. Now he just has to keep his hands to himself and remain professional... Evie and Damon will soon come to see that neither is quite what each had thought. Evie may dress in non-designer wear, without a stitch of makeup on her face most of the time, but she's intelligent and quick thinking and genuine. How could Damon have thought she wasn't his type, wouldn't fit into his world?! Damon too is not the thickheaded jock she had thought. He is fiercely protective and loving, and takes his sport and his teammates seriously, definitely not the dumb jock she had assumed. Will their newfound views of each other combined with their attraction make a fake relationship into a real one? This is a sizzling installment in the already awesome Dare world. I love how neither of them is quite as expected, yet is perfect for the other. I love the entire Dare family, and Damon and Evie's story is yet another reason why.

His reaction to Evie the very first time he saw her play the role they’ve setup for her had me chuckling as well and fanning myself because man oh man this woman is ALL THAT AND A BAG OF CHIPS!! She’s beautiful inside and out, smart, doesn’t need a man to complete her and she’s really good at her job…even though she thinks she won’t fall for Damon…. There’s a wrinkle in that plan because they just can’t deny their chemistry! Evie goes about her investigation with cunning smarts and skill not leaving any rock unearthed to find the guilty party. Seeing how Damon’s respect for her evolved through the book just made me lover him more. He’s not afraid to admit he’s wrong and when they cross that proverbial line….bring out the fire extinguishers because holy moly hotness!!! Seeing how her investigation followed the clues was fascinating especially when we get the “who done it” moment because WOWZA wasn’t expecting that!! Ms. Phillips has given us a story that’s engaging, funny, sexy, swoony and everything I love about her writing! I highly recommend this book and this series as well as all of her other books because you’ll never be disappointed when you read her books!

Between the playful banter, the simmering sexual tension and the little splash of danger, it was a quick and easy flowing read that held my attention all the way to the end. When Damon fails a drug test and his football career is at risk, Evie is hired to find the truth. To further her investigation and to escape from her very dangerous and crazed ex, Evie and Damon begin a fake relationship. Evie has had her heart broken and her trust betrayed by her previous partner, leaving her with doubts about her judgement and very wary of beginning a new relationship. Despite her insecurities, she remains the badass private investigator she was before. She was strong willed, fiercely independent and sassy. Damon has always been known as a player. Never known to be in a relationship or tying himself to one woman but that quickly changes when surprising and unexpected emotions for Evie consume him. Looking past his player status, Damon definitely had some redeeming qualities. He is protective, loyal, patient and I loved how he supported Evie’s decisions and need to be independent. It was great to catch up with Austin, Quinn and the rest of the Prescott/Dare family and I am super excited for the release of the next instalment in the series and to read Jaxon and Macy’s story next.

    Damon is a successful professional quarterback who thought that being on the receiving end of a concussion was bad enough but finding out that he has been suspended for using illegal substances that he has not taken makes it much worse. He knows he is innocent and isn’t about to see the reputation he has worked so hard to maintain be sullied which is how Evie comes into his life.

Evie is his sister in-law’s best friend and a private investigator. They come up with a plan to try and out the guilty party and that means pretending that they are in a romantic relationship. What she wasn’t expecting was that it would be double the danger as not only do they have his situation to deal with but her past has resurfaced with a vengeance. There was no denying the chemistry and although neither of them was looking for a relationship, for very different reasons, sometimes the best things happen when you least expect it. When they truly get to know each other she realizes he is more protector than player while he sees there is much more to her than her strong independent demeanor and there is denying the chemistry between them.

    This was an enjoyable romance. I like reading characters who have more than just good chemistry and Evie and Damon fit that bill. The storyline was good and not over the top there was witty banter good secondary charcters and minimal drama. If you have read other books by this author you will meet back up with some familiar faces.

    The Dares just keep growing and growing and I’m okay with that. Each new book is just as fun and steamy as the last. This was a quick read that had a slow burn with some mystery and suspense. It was intriguing and romantic and I loved every minute of it. Carly Phillips is a go to author and never lets me down with a great story to keep me entertained from beginning to end.

I loved the suspenseful aspect to this story, it kept me guessing and waiting for what would happen next. Dare to Tempt is book 2 in this series of standalone novels. It is told in Dual POV from the third person. I believe this series can be read in any order. Carly makes sure not to spoil any previous books in the series, but also makes sure the reader is lost while reading the new story. You will see interconnected characters in this series, since it based around the Prescott Siblings. I thought the flow and pace of this story was great. If you are a fan of the “fake” relationship story, then this is one you should give a try. I loved that we get a HOT Hero and a heroine who knows how to give as good as she gets. Evie was a great heroine. She is determined, independent and full of sass, but she is also kind hearted and has a vulnerable side. She had a hard time trusting because of a past relationship that went way wrong. Damon was your typical Arrogant, Cocky, Jock who was a player and didn’t want to settle down but I couldn’t help falling for him. I loved his hidden softer side. I loved seeing the other Prescott siblings in this story and it was great catching up with Quinn and Austin (Couple from book 1) I look forward to reading Jaxon’s story next. I also hope we get to know Braden better as the books release. If you are a fan of the Dare family series and/or Carly Phillips, you want to read this book. It was a book filled with love, laughter and suspense. Just perfect for an afternoon escape. Follow Us at :: Facebook

With each turn of the page this release is another winner as a fake relationship slowly becomes real while the mystery surrounding a star quarterback is ultimately solved in an all-around HEA. Damon Prescott's a sexy, star quarterback on the top of his game when this book starts. Things go quickly downhill though the moment he gets a concussion with tests revealing performance enhancing drugs in his system which lead to being suspended from his team who are more like a family to him. It's a crushing blow, one that has him doing whatever's necessary to prove his innocence. Though he's always enjoyed the player lifestyle he quickly commits to a fake relationship with a PI hired to find out the truth and discovers that being close to Evie's the lone bright spot in his life. Damon starts out as a stereotypical player, enjoying the adoration of the female fans through numerous one night stands. He's fun, flirty, as well as a bit arrogant, but seeing him around his family shows a man with a big heart just waiting for someone to love him for him. After a rocky first encounter, Damon and Evie's connection turned combustible and I was rooting for them every step of the way as their pairing was utterly entertaining and made them even more likable as they finally took a chance on love and each other. Evie Wolfe's a great heroine, self-assured when it comes to her job and protective of both family and friends. She's a smart cookie too with a need to prove herself in what's normally seen as a man's job and I was cheering her on from start to finish as she dealt with the feelings of inadequacy her ex left her with. It was an internal battle she waged with herself over embracing her womanly side while solving the mystery of Damon's dirty test results, a battle that's a timely issue and one that made me like her all the more for standing her ground and being true to herself. Through it all Evie's full of sass, more than capable of giving as good as she gets, and it made for a connection to Damon that was full of sparks. With each turn of the page this couple became more united, stronger in their love, as they solved not only the mystery surrounding Damon but also mysteries surrounding the heart. Damon and Evie were a delightful pairing, fun and flirty towards each other, with crackling banter and sizzling interludes. Damon was a bit superficial at first, but as the story progressed I saw greater depth to his character. Time spent with family and friends brought out a softer side that endeared him to me while his support of Evie in her job also spoke highly of him. Evie was an appealing heroine with an air of confidence but also vulnerability that kept me rooting for her to get everything she wanted in a romance I was fully invested in. Surrounding this entertaining main couple was an equally appealing cast of secondary characters, family members and friends, some who readers have seen before and some who left a tantalizing impression on me as I wait for more stories to be told. Fans of the theme of fake romances will find much to like about this release, much to like about the characters and their beautiful blend of sexy and sweet, and by The End you'll be left with a smile on your face.

It was hard to not love Damon and Evie. Damon may be all about the one and done and not wanting to be in a committed relationship, but his dedication to his career and his loyalty to his family and friends shows just how big his heart is. Evie is a tough cookie, she’s had to be considering the family she grew up in, but she also has a quick wit and is much more observant than most realize. The journey to their HEA was an enjoyable one as they both were thrown together and had no choice but to get to know each other and realize that neither was who they expected them to be. The bantering was a lot of fun and the chemistry between them was hot. I really liked that the angst between them was on the low end of the spectrum, especially with all that they were dealing with, but they did have a few bumps in their road and I loved how everything worked out for them. This was another great addition to the Dare World, which is quite vast. There are a couple topics that may make readers uncomfortable, but it was all handled very well. I loved catching up with Austin and Quinn and meeting/catching up with a hand full of the Dare clan, and I really enjoyed getting to know the Prescott family a little better. I don’t have an ultimate fav of the bunch, but I’m definitely looking forward to watching as Jaxon is brought to his knees! ~ Copy provided by the author & voluntarily reviewed ~

This will give her access to everyone around him without anyone being suspicious of being looked into. Evie has her own issue with an ex that became her stalker.

A relationship is not something either one of them wanted or was expecting to find with each other, they had nothing in common. Life had other ideas for these two.... This was an easy book to read with a HEA, it had a bit of mystery with a crazy stalker, secret framer, hot chemistry, romatic, big families that was funny at times. I loved all of the secondary characters making me enjoy this book even more, and I can't wait for the next brother Jaxon story....

Dare To Tempt follows Dare To Resist; Quinnlan calls in a favor from her friend Evie to look into her brother-in-law Damon's situation. Evie and Damon pretend to be dating so that she can try to figure out who may be after him, and it's not long before the lines blur between the fake relationship and some very real feelings. Damon and Evie have great banter and chemistry. These two have some ups and downs as they go from pretending to bona fide romance, but it's a sexy and sweet journey for these two. They don't really like each other much at first, thanks to some preconceived notions, but it's a joy to see them discover something unexpected in the other. They both are definitely carrying around their fair share of baggage, and Damon and Evie are a classic case of a commitaphobe being brought to his knees by a smart, strong heroine. This book is set in the larger Dare family world, so there are some catch-ups with a few of those characters, and we get to know the Prescott siblings more as well. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

I loved catching up with everyone, but do not fear if they are new to you, as there are plenty of hints and tips to connect the dots. It will be a pleasure for newbies to go and discover all the goodness. The story starts with the ugly truth that star quarterback Damon has not only got a bad concussion but he has tested positive for drugs. Anyone who knows him recognises that this cannot be right, but it is decided that Quinn's best friend and PI, Evie, may be able to uncover what has happened. As they devise a plot to introduce her as all-time player Damon's girlfriend to enable her to get close to his teammates, we can see just how complicated this is going to get. Throw in a dangerous ex, who scarred Evie, and the two of them need to be there for each other. Given the chemistry between them, be ready for a hot and steamy read, with lots of family fun on the side. Another very enjoyable read, and a good mix of sexy, cheeky, romantic, sporty and family fun. Highly recommended.

    Damon is recovering from a pretty severe game injury but the headaches and dizziness aren't his real problem - The positive drug screening is - Facing being benched for practically the first half of the season and no answers as to who might have done this to him he has no choice but to relent to Quinn's "great idea". Desperate times and all that - Things couldn't get any worse - Right? Worse = Meet Evie Wolfe A P.I. that has a nose for the truth And a body that is pure temptation These two were oil and Damon is recovering from a pretty severe game injury but the headaches and dizziness aren't his real problem - The positive drug screening is - Facing being benched for practically the first half of the season and no answers as to who might have done this to him he has no choice but to relent to Quinn's "great idea". Desperate times and all that - Things couldn't get any worse - Right? Worse = Meet Evie Wolfe A P.I. that has a nose for the truth And a body that is pure temptation These two were oil and water from the get. I was a bit peeved at Damon in the beginning but he turned out to be so much more. Evie, at first glance, did not meet Damon's idea of arm candy but she had an ace up her sleeve that was guaranteed to leave Damon a drooling puddle of need. I wish this was longer! I have never read this author's work - but after Dare to Tempt? That is about to change! I want more - More of this cast More of the banter, the family The smoking hot sexual tension The light suspense that kept me engaged without drowning out Evie and Dawson's story I can not wait to meet the rest of the family - Read their stories Definitely recommend this one

Damon loves his life. He loves his family, no matter how strange and chaotic it is. He loves his game and really wants to be playing again. He feels like he has let his teammates down and isn't quite sure what to do with his time now that he's, one, injured and two, suspended for use of a banned substance. Evie is wanting to prove to herself and others that she is going to be a capable PI. When she left the force, it wasn't because she really wanted to, it was because she lost faith in her ability to read a situation and really know what was going on. Even though she knows Damon's family really well, she hasn't really gotten to know him. When Evie is hired to help figure out if anyone has framed Damon, it'll take incredible acting skills to make people believe they are a couple...or, they'll have to let their true chemistry speak for itself. These two are a cute couple with trust issues. Both want to find someone to trust, love and believe in them, but both have been hurt. Can they find a true partner or will they be bound to have only hookups again? With danger looming, lying happening, it'll take them both to figure out each other's lives and hold on to what might be happening between them. It's a sweet story that left me smiling.

Banter, friendships, drama and ex’s make this book a thoroughly enjoyable read. Dare to Tempt has great character development and a great backstory, however, one thing I did find to be lacking was the climax. There was a lot of backstory about Evies past that you thought would contribute but it in fact fell flat. I loved the chemistry between the two main characters and I loved the family dynamics. Overall, a great read that I would recommend to any romance fan. Enjoy Everyday, Ebook Enthusiast :)

    There's something about a Dare that goes straight to the heart. Yummy heroes, fierce heroines and intriguing scenarios prove to be a heady experience. No author can tempt, frustrate and still leave you wanting more. Damon and Evie are fiery proof of the addiction that is Carly Phillips. Right at the start emotions come out swinging. Scandal is the name of the game, but attraction scores a touchdown for this fiery duo. Who will be the winner in this battle of hearts? Why the reader of course.

    I really enjoyed this story! Damon is a quarterback but is now being suspended because of suspicious about drugs..so he needs a private investigator to prove he is innocent..and that's how he meets Evie. These two have plenty of chemistry and I love their banter! They are so great together but Evie has some baggage too and she is not going to jump in with a playboy.. so how can he convince her?? The story is funny and sweet and sexy!

    Dare to Tempt is the second book in the Dare Nation series by Carly Phillips. Drama, suspense, off-the-charts chemistry, mystery, witty banter, plenty of heat and a great storyline that you can't wait to see where the story takes you. I volunteered to review an advance reader copy of this book.

    I enjoyed this romance. Evie and Damon had good chemistry, shared clever banter and I really liked the sparks they generated. The storyline was fun and offered up a entertaining blend of drama, heat, emotion, suspense, mystery and heart. There is an interesting and highly appealing cast of characters that provides endless possibilities for even more books. This is my candid, elective review.
