Professional mercenary Dare Macintosh lives by one hard and fast rule: business should never be personal. If a cause appeals to him and the price is right, he'll take the mission he's offered. But then the lovely Molly Alexander asks him to help her track down the men who'd had her kidnapped, and for the first time, Dare's tempted to combine work with pleasure. Fiercely independent, Molly vows to trust no one until she's uncovered the truth. Could the enemy be her powerful, estranged father? The ex-fiancé who still holds a grudge? Or the not-so-shy fan of her bestselling novels? As the danger heats up around them, the only anchor Molly has is Dare himself. But what she feels for him just might be the most frightening thing of all.
As soon as I saw this book on Netgalley I just had to read Lori Foster’s newest book. I’m a big fan of her romance books. I adore the way she writes her heroes and I generally like her heroines too. So as soon as I saw this I just had to request if I could read it and happily I was accepted.
When You Dare is a mix between a contemporary romance and a romantic suspense, there are several series issues and moments in the book but on the whole When You Dare is quite a light, enjoyful read. I thoroughly loved When You Dare for starters you have a brilliant alpha hero, Dare who comes across as really shady character at the start of the book who’s out to rescue his best friends sister and although I liked him for that I liked him even more by the end of the book as you see so much more to his character! Also Dares heroine Molly, she is such a doll! She is a brilliant great character that I really loved and admired. Even when she was drugged she never gave up her fight to survive and gave Dare a nosebleed thinking he was the bad guy! Molly is truly everything you could want in a heroine, she’s smart, funny, determined and knows her own mind and Dare is such a great hero to start with Molly just adds some extra oomph! The secondary characters are brilliant too, I adored Chris who is Dare’s personal assistant, I was a bit disappointed that Ms Foster is only doing three books in this series because Chris is such a great character that I really want him to get his own HEA, maybe he’ll get his own HEA in the third and final book?! There were two other characters that had a small role in this book Trace and his sister (who Dare went to rescue) Alani, they were both interesting characters but they weren’t given into great detail about who their are as people. Although this is because Trace’s book Trace of Fever is out in May and Alani will be in the third book in June which I think is called Danger Fever.
When You Dare is a classic Lori Foster book and cements all the reasons I fell in love with her books when I was a 17 year old!
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed When You Dare, it’s a great book in an interesting new series and I can’t wait to read the other books!
