Quick and dirty
This short story from Carly Phillips is here just in time for Christmas, and gives fans a quick and dirty glimpse of the Dares, and especially Ian and Riley, who originally appeared in Ms Phillips’ Dare to Love (the first of the original Dare stories). I’ve not read that book (yet) but I completely understood and enjoyed this story – so I’m happy to say it stands alone.
Ian Dare is an alpha man who knows what he wants and is determined to get it. He sees his wife under pressure, and is hell bent on fixing her problems – especially if that means the pair can spend more time together as a couple. Who doesn’t want a man who puts you first and is determined to make all your problems disappear? And I just loved that Riley is strong and capable enough to let Ian take care of her, knowing that she’s really the one with the power.
Just reading about this short period in Riley and Ian’s lives makes me doubly determined to read Dare to Love and all the other Dare books I’ve not yet got around to reading.
This book is short, dirty and full of Carly Phillips’ usual superb writing and engaging dialogue. If you’re a fan, then this book is a must for you. If you’re new to Ms Phillips – this will give you a good taster and leave you hungry for more. 5 stars for this fun story.
