Dare to Tease by Carly Phillips Blog Tour

Dare to Tease by Carly Phillips Now Available.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carly Phillips returns to her sexy Dare world of rich billionaire sports heroes in her new Dare Nation series!

She handles cocky jocks for a living, but her love life isn’t as successful.
Brianne Prescott, publicist for Dare Nation Sports Agency, grew up the only girl with four brothers, three of whom are sports royalty. She’s a pro not just at work but at being used by men who want access to her famous family. She’s learned the hard way that everyone wants something from her, always.

He’s her brother’s best friend and the first man who sees her for who she really is.
When Dr. Hudson Northfield rescues Bri from a homeless man outside the clinic where he works, he really notices her for the first time. Soon she’s accompanying him to New York for a family wedding, and despite her siblings’ overprotective protests, they’re falling in love.

But Hudson has a secret he can’t reveal. If he wants access to a trust fund in his name, his father demands something in return. Hudson has to marry and provide an heir or his dream of opening a state-of-the-art health center will be destroyed. Suddenly the man who didn’t need anything from her appears to be the biggest user of them all. Unless Hudson can convince her he can live without money but he can’t live without her.

“What are you thinking about?” he asked.

Their faces were close together as they spoke, creating a bubble of intimacy and making it easier to be honest. “About how much I admire you. How you could be on the money train with your family in New York, but instead you’re all about giving back. I like that about you.” She studied his expression and the look in his eyes. “What’s wrong? Something’s bothering you.”

“You’ve come to read me well in a very short time,” he said on a low chuckle. “I do have an issue to deal with while I’m home.”

She reached out and clasped their hands together. Her palms felt better now that it had been a few days since she’d fallen, and the bandages made it easier to do things. Like hold hands. “I’m a good listener… if you want to unload your problems.”

He hesitated, obviously weighing his words. “You know the plans for the clinic Braden mentioned the day he walked in on us?”

She nodded. In the rush of her sudden trip, buying a dress, packing, and making sure her clients were covered by another PR person if she wasn’t reachable, she’d forgotten to ask either man about it since.

“Braden and I want to renovate and remodel the clinic into a state-of-the-art place where people who don’t have access to insurance or good care can still come in and get treated. As it stands now, the equipment is old, the building run-down, and it’s hard to entice professionals to come work there.”

“I love that idea!”

“Obviously so do I. Braden’s going to talk to Paul Dare about funding, and I need to have the same conversation with my father. My grandfather left me money in trust, but he also made my father the trustee, and it’s at his discretion whether or not to let me have money from the principal.”

She realized he’d begun tapping a foot against the floor, his knee bouncing up and down with every contact. “You’re really wound up about this, aren’t you?”



Brianne Prescott was the whole package. And he intended to make her his.

Bri knows that she is the baby of the family, but she also wants to live her own life. Despite her attraction to her brother's good friend, Hudson, she thinks that she'll just have to appreciate him from afar.

Hudson knows what he wants in life and it isn't having his parents meddle in his life. He wants to be his own man. But with the sudden death of his older brother, his dad and mom are pressuring him to move home to run the family business. Hudson needs money from his trust, but knows that his dad isn't one to do a good deed out of the goodness of his heart.

Bri and Hudson have great chemistry. They know each other and already have an attraction. While they don't have an insta-love connection, their story felt slightly rushed, so it has the same feeling. I wanted more of a conclusion regarding Hudson's parents and his relationship with them too. It felt that this story was unfinished.

Bri and Hudson have to decide who they want to be their family. Hudson is already part of her family because of his connection with her brother, but can Bri trust Hudson with her heart too?

This is the fifth (#4.5) book in the series, and whilst you can definitely enjoy this as a standalone, I would highly recommend that you read this very enjoyable series in order. This book concentrates on the one female sibling of the family, Brianne. She is somewhat fed up of her brothers cramping her style, and her attraction to Hudson, her twin's best friend and colleague, is finally given a chance to flourish.

Hudson rescues Brianne from an overzealous beggar outside his outreach clinic. He patches her up and enjoys the chance to be close to her... so much that they share a kiss. And with that, the journey to becoming more begins. It is hugely enjoyable watching them navigate around her protective brothers, and rather sad how Hudson's father abuses his position of trustee to blackmail his son. As both leads are over thirty, they are well able to think on their actions and admit their mistakes. It makes for a nice change which adds richness to the story.

I was very pleased that not only did Brianne finally get her happily ever after, but we also got to catch up with the family and see that all previous romances are still going well.



Nothing but her saying no was going to prevent him from kissing her.
