Synopsis from Goodreads
One protective alpha male plus one curvy damsel in distress equals an instant attraction they can’t deny.
Billionaire nightclub owner Jason Dare doesn’t stand a chance. From the moment he lays eyes on the luscious blonde stuck on the side of the road and realizes she’s in danger, he goes from playboy to bodyguard.
Faith Lancaster’s sweet body won’t come to any harm on his watch. And watch Faith he does. He can’t take his eyes off her. Jason will stop at nothing to keep Faith safe. Even if it means moving her into his apartment and letting her into his once private life.
Hiding from her past, Faith has spent the last year building her candy business into a profitable company while keeping to herself and staying under the radar … until she meets the delicious Mr. Dare. Alpha and irresistible, he awakens desires she has long denied. It doesn’t take her long to succumb to his charms and fall hard for the man.
They both have their reasons for keeping things casual but when Faith’s past catches up with her, can Jason finally claim the woman meant to be his?
Sexy Dare is fast-paced with a heavy dose of smexy, a quick read with lots of chemistry and little angst between the main characters.
Sexy Dare gives us insight into Jason Dare connected to Carly’s Dare to Love series; so for those familiar with the series they are able to understand the family dynamics a little clearer than those who are new to the series. However, Carly does a terrific job of recapping the pertinent details within Sexy Dare.
I mention family dynamics because they play are a large part in understanding both Jason and Faith especially their views on relationships and how their actions are defined as a result.
Faith and Jason meet when he plays good samaritan to help her with a flat tyre not expecting an immediate connection to Faith as well as a heavy dose of chemistry. Unable to ignore his protective instincts, Jason becomes Faith’s guardian during a time when her past catches up with her; caused by her personal family situation. Allowing them to act on their chemistry for the duration of the protection while keeping their barriers in place.
However, they are unable to avoid the emotional entanglement created by their instinctive connection. With feelings building between Faith and Jason further revelations occur revealing the depth of Jason’s emotional scars. The trauma and tragedy of his past preventing him from creating a clear path to happiness.
Overcoming the negative events in our past is one of the hardest battles anyone has to face, although sometimes, someone comes along to help clear the way and bring a brighter future along with them. This is exactly the type of effect Jason and Faith have on each other ❤
