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.


Ok to start this off we'll begin with a technical note, a) because of our blog name and b) because I was confused at first when I started reading hehe
So from the blurb you understand that Tyler has a best friend and said best friend has a sister he likes... In the book though Ella has a friend and is that friend who has a brother... So nothing big just something that caught my eye while reading, I undestand that most of you are no so OCD.

Moving on to the good stuff now!
Dare to Take is the 6th book in the Dare series, but you can read it as a stand alone, as I did. You get to see the rest of the family and the author makes sure to include enough information in each of their stories to give the background characters life without overwelming the reader with other stories arcs.

I loved that Ella and Tyler had history, that they knew each other in a way and yet they were practically strangers. They had a lot of chemestry so it was easy to see how the rest of the family were expecting this relationship.

What I enjoyed the most though, was that the book wasn't just a love story. While Ella is in a tropical island she gets mugged and stranded due to a huracan, and Tyler comes to her rescue. Once back on main land things are still a little weird, someone is chasing Ella and thankgoodness pushing her to Tyler. So the mistery, while a little easy to guess, was a nice twist to the cliché. 

Tyler is really trying to make amends for what happened years ago but Elle won't make it easy on him. These two bicker like and old couple and go at each other like teenegers.

Dare to Take in the kind of read you want on a busy week to keep your mind off and enjoy a good book.
