Series: Wedding Dare book 0.5
Author: Laura Kaye
A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…
Trapped and tempted, this battle of wills rages all night long…
Kady Dresco and Colton Brooks click on a level that defies logic. There are only two problems. One, he’s her older brother’s irritating best friend, and two, they’re bidding on the same military security services contract.
When the competition heats up, Colton is torn between wanting to strangle Kady (and her annoying brilliance) and kissing her into submission. Which is a bad idea for a million reasons, because Kady’s submission is exactly what he craves. Being trapped in a tiny motel room with the object of his darkest fantasies will require every ounce of his restraint.
Kady doesn’t want his restraint, but Colton knows better. She deserves love, marriage, and a white picket fence—three things Colton can’t give her. But her proximity and the memory of their steamy near-miss three years ago slowly destroys his resolve. And he’s not sure how much longer he can keep his hands off…or his heart closed.
Thoughts: How many Laura Kaye books can a woman read at one time?!! Well, over the past weekend for me it was two. I’m reading the paperback version of book 2 the Hard Ink series, Hard As You Can, anticipating the release of the next book in November… (Have to get caught up!) And I read the Kindle version of this novella, Dare to Resist, which is the beginning of the Wedding Dare series.
This series was described by Ms. Kaye as a “wonderfully fun continuity project” between Tessa Bailey, Diane Alberts, Katee Robert and Samanthe Beck. I’m looking forward to reading more of the series and discovering some new-to-me authors. I hope they can deliver the humor, sweetness, passion and heat that Laura was able to deliver in Dare to Resist!
Colton’s intensity and Kady’s business acumen and yet personal vulnerability were a smoking HOT combo!! Love when characters have a shared history to build a future relationship on! And as I reread my highlighted ‘naughty’ parts to write this review – I must say that Laura Kaye and her writing is something that I will go back to time and time again! I don’t often read books more than once but for LK I will definitely make an exception.
