Thoughts: This is the first book of Carly Phillips that I’ve read and I don’t believe it will be my last. This is the story of Riley Taylor and Ian Dare. We’ve all heard of animal magnetism, right? The meeting of these two puts that to the test. Can two people who have instant passion for each other find true love with each other? Can they do it when one half of the couple has a best friend who has their doubts? These are all questions that are raised while you read Dare To Love.

Obstacle #1: Ian Dare a womanizer and is the only way that Riley’s best friend Alex has known him as and Ian must win Alex over in order to win Riley’s heart.

Obstacle #2: Ian has a need for control.

Obstacle #3: Riley will not have a man who feels the need to dominate her.

The only common ground they have is they are both tough and strong but is it enough for them to make it as a couple? Can they build a relationship by letting go of their past and the need for barriers in order to allow love in their hearts?

You’ll find the answers you are looking for in the pages of Dare To Love.
