I’m a huge fan of Carly Phillips writing and especially her “Dare to Love” series. I’ve read a few of the books in the series and they are all great reads! In “Dare to Take” Phillips continues with the Dare Family. In this story we meet Tyler Dare and Ella Shaw. Once again Phillips did not disappoint.
Tyler Dare was a great hero. I really loved his complexities and his all too human characteristics. Tyler and Ella have had underlining chemistry for years. We quickly learn that a drunken night that they shared together causes many problems for them in the years to come. Tyler carries a lot of guilt about that night. Because of his one night stand with Ella- his sister’s best friend- his and Ella’s relationship has been strained.
Ella was an equally great heroine! Ella naively believed that the one night stand she had with Tyler would mean more than it actually did. She carries anger and resentment towards him. Ella has always had feelings for Tyler so his behavior after their time together leads to a lot of hurt feelings on her part.
With a little help from Mother Nature and from Avery, Ellie and Tyler have a chance to rekindle old feelings. Tyler is ever the alpha as he tries to protect Ellie from the forces of nature and a stalker.
I really like both Ella and Tyler together. Their chemistry was fantastic. I loved to see that both were able to move past their mistakes and build a good friendship that eventually leads to more. Phillips also catches us up with past characters and we see some of the family members move on to big moments in their lives. As a fan of “Dare to Love” series I think that the stories get better and better and the chemistry never disappoints.
