Book Review: Dare To Take by Carly Philips

4.0 Short Stuff Stars!!!

Dare To Take is a lighthearted, fast paced,sweet and adorable read with a little angst but full of love and romance which undeniably warmed my heart and made me swoon and laughed and at the same time made my heart leaped a bit that follows the story of Tyler and Ella - both an adorable and sweet character with Tyler in his alpha sexiness that made me smile and fall in love. Ahhh just perfect for my day!

To be real honest, I regret that I read only this book in the series. Like what the hell??? This is the 6th book and the final book in the series and it may be a standalone but eff if I did not regret not reading the previous books in the series! I was ashamed of myself because My God Carly Philips really did not disappoint. It was just a short read but it was full of emotions and I was hooked the moment I started reading the book. And do you know what first piqued my interest?
It's the cover of this book! Like all I can say is,
There's just something in it that made it look so hot and eye catching that made me really eager to look forward to reading it and the blurb of this book that gives a strong foundation of the story. 

She was off limits, 
But he couldn't resist. 

There are just some guys you don't touch--even someone as innocent and inexperienced as Ella Shaw knows that. But when her brother's best friend is up for grabs and willing, she can't resist. After all, she's wanted him for years... 

On leave from the army, Tyler Dare is just looking for a little fun, but his best friend's sister is off limits. Yet unable to deny how sexy and alluring she is, he finds it all too easy to succumb to a night of passion and heat that ends the next morning in the worst way possible. 

Now, Ella is stranded on a tropical island with a hurricane bearing down, and only Tyler can save her. It's his chance to make amends for the past and show the woman he's never forgotten that he's coming after her . . . in more ways than one..

My reaction?
And boy, I was not disappointed really! I love how the story started. It may have somewhat a cliche vibe but overall the story is just really beautiful. As it progresses it made me more invested. That feeling when you swooned over the characters and made you feel like it was you in there and not them? Yeah I feel that while I was reading this. It's not normal for me because this story is just so light but nah don't underestimate it because this book will definitely give you more. The emotions was just all over, there's even this scene that really made me ache and wanted to just bottle up Tyler because wow and wow I just fall in love with him. The characters' interaction to each other is just so strong and full of chemistry. The way they resolved each other's baggage clearly shows how strong they are and not some kinda "lady in distress'' and 'knight in shining armor" type. My only complaint though is that it ends sooner than I wanted. Because boy, I want their love story not to end yet, seriously! I get it that this is a second chance love story but I am still looking forward to more of their interactions. Even the conflict although one of the highlights of the story seemed to have been resolved too fast but how it turned out though is real good despite it.

If you'll gonna ask me if I recommend it? OH YES I DEFINITELY WILL!!!

To Carly Philips, great job on the book! I can't even wait to read your up coming release. That sneak peek at the end of Dare To Take? Man! I just can't wait to get my hands on it.
