Dare to Tempt by Carly Phillips Blog Tour

He’s a smooth talking jock in trouble
She’s the solution to his problems.
Love is the last thing they expected to find.

Damon Prescott had it all. Star quarterback. Money. Fame. Now? He’s being accused of taking performance enhancing drugs and banned from the sport and team he loves.

Determined to prove he’s innocent, he hires tough as nails private investigator, Evie Wolfe. She’s able to bring a man to his knees with a glare, yet sensual in ways that take him off guard - and she’s everything Damon didn’t know he needed.

Evie’s used to men dismissing her, especially playboys like Damon Prescott so she’s not buying the sexual lines he’s trying to sell. She’s with him to do a job, nothing more. But you know what they say about the best laid plans? Sometimes you end up between the sheets with an arrogant football player anyway.

But when the case is over, can Damon convince Evie she’s the only woman for him or will she leave him tied up in love?

Damon loves his life. He loves his family, no matter how strange and chaotic it is. He loves his game and really wants to be playing again. He feels like he has let his teammates down and isn't quite sure what to do with his time now that he's, one, injured and two, suspended for use of a banned substance.

Evie is wanting to prove to herself and others that she is going to be a capable PI. When she left the force, it wasn't because she really wanted to, it was because she lost faith in her ability to read a situation and really know what was going on. Even though she knows Damon's family really well, she hasn't really gotten to know him.

When Evie is hired to help figure out if anyone has framed Damon, it'll take incredible acting skills to make people believe they are a couple... or, they'll have to let their true chemistry speak for itself.

These two are a cute couple with trust issues. Both want to find someone to trust, love, and believe in them, but both have been hurt. Can they find a true partner, or will they be bound to have only hookups again? With danger looming, lying happening, it'll take them both to figure out each other's lives and hold on to what might be happening between them. It's a sweet story that left me smiling.

This is the second in the Dare Nation series, but Phillips fans will know that the stories including Dares are many, and all filled with delicious characters, who are just one big family. I loved catching up with everyone, but do not fear if they are new to you, as there are plenty of hints and tips to connect the dots. It will be a pleasure for newbies to go and discover all the goodness.

The story starts with the ugly truth that star quarterback Damon has not only got a bad concussion, but he has tested positive for drugs. Anyone who knows him recognises that this cannot be right, but it is decided that Quinn's best friend and PI, Evie, may be able to uncover what has happened. As they devise a plot to introduce her as all-time player Damon's girlfriend to enable her to get close to his teammates, we can see just how complicated this is going to get. Throw in a dangerous ex, who scarred Evie, and the two of them need to be there for each other. Given the chemistry between them, be ready for a hot and steamy read, with lots of family fun on the side.

Another very enjoyable read, and a good mix of sexy, cheeky, romantic, sporty, and family fun. Highly recommended.
