The Dare by Denise A. Agnew

Mousy and just plain boring…
Tired of self-denial and being cloistered by her father's overprotectiveness, wealthy painter Isabella takes a vacation alone.

Tough and way too cocky...
Police officer Luca Angello is self-confident, powerfully sexual, and on the trail of gang members attacking women.

Isabella thinks Luca is shallow and only out for a good time. Luca thinks Isabella needs some loosening up. When danger throws her into his arms, she discovers that he can reach her depths in ways she never could have imagined.

Fear brings them together, but will violence tear them apart?

Note: The Dare was previously released by another publisher. It has been revised and re-edited for this edition.

I really enjoyed the beginning of The Dare, it was steamy and fun. Isabella is taking a break from her family, trying to find her "muse," and is staying in her family’s duplex far away from them. She just so happens to look through her kitchen window to find her neighbor aka SERIOUS man-candy!
An Alpha through and through, Luca Angello meets his neighbor and you can feel the sparks fly. He's also on leave from the police force, which is exactly what Isabella needs.

This story contained some action, a slow building romance, and a touch of suspense. This wasn't a nail-biter, the suspense was very "light," I found myself a bit distracted and wishing for more clues to put together.
The erotic scenes were drawn out and gratuitous, but eventually everything came together.

This was a decent story, just not my cup of tea.

This book held a lot of promise... Former Green Beret with a rich girl who’s escaping some issue back home. However, for me, it fell flat. The mystery/suspense was kind of cheesy and not half as scary as what she makes it out to be... unless she was 5. The naughty scenes were so drawn out it ruined any part that could've been sexy.

The plot didn't have much development and neither did the characters as much of the book is naughty scenes with easy resolution to any tiny bit of disturbance that comes up between the couple or anything else.

However, other than the naughty scenes I felt the book was pretty well written and flowed smoothly so I would read this author again.
