Dare You by Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine Blog Tour

They’re from two different worlds. This could never work. But what if… they dared to try?

From Ella Frank’s Prime Time series and Brooke Blaine’s South Haven series comes an explosive spin-off of both worlds.

Sebastian “Bash” Vogel, the magnetic, cross-dressing CEO of AnaVoge, has long been a lone island when it comes to his personal life. Self-assured and playful, he’s never left wanting for suitors—but Bash isn’t looking for something permanent. He’s more than fulfilled with his company and his closest friends, and no one is going to shake up the status quo.

That is, until he’s thrown over the shoulder of one of Chicago’s finest and hauled out of a burning building.

Kieran Bailey, a sexy, hardworking lieutenant at Station 73, has been reaping the rewards of being crowned the city’s hottest fireman, which his crew never lets him forget. So many ladies, so little time. So when he rescues the latest damsel in distress, no one is more shocked than him to realize he’s played prince charming to another… prince.

But Bash isn’t like anyone Kieran has ever met, and soon his world is turned upside down as he becomes more intrigued by the enigmatic man that he can’t stay away from.

They’re from two different worlds. This could never work. But what if… they dared to try?

Authors’ Note: Dare You is book one of the Dare to Try trilogy, which must be read in order. Prior reading is not required, but is always a fantastic idea for maximum enjoyment.

Holy crap, this book was good. I usually don't like slow-burn romances, but these two authors know how to write a good story! Kieran and Bash are polar opposites but are ohhhh soooo good together. I love and hate that this is a trilogy. It ended too soon butttttttt, I know the next installment will be out soon. LOL. I loved watching Kieran and Bash's relationship grow and I absolutely cannot wait for the next the book.

Dare You is the first installment in a new co-authored series, Dare to Try, by Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank. But also a spin-off from the Prime Time series and the Confessions series; it can be read completely independent, but honestly you shouldn't. Knowing all the characters and their past stories make this one so much better!!!

In typical Blaine-Frank fashion, they leave you wanting so much more. I absolutely loved the pace and burn of this one. Seeing the relationship grow from day one is everything that adds to the slow build up between them, making it perfection. Kieran and Bash are complete opposites. Kieran is a straight, playboy firefighter and Bash is a gay crossdresser. So completely different but work so well together. The flirting and banter have you smiling and swooning throughout.

I cannot wait for the next installment! I am hooked on this new series.

This is the first book in a trilogy, so do expect a bit of an ambiguous ending of this first installment. This also links in to earlier books, such as the Prime Time series, and later Confessions books – where the other Bailey brothers find their happily ever afters.

Here, firefighter Kieran, who has a strong reputation as a playboy with women pretty much falling at his feet, finds himself attracted to businessman Bash. And he is not just any businessman, but an incredibly successful one that he saved from a fire when Sebastian was dressed in an evening gown and wearing red soled high heels. Both his brothers have boyfriends, one unexpectedly so, so he is well aware of the possibilities, but still surprised at the strength of his interest in this man.

I love the wit and desire that passes between them, and the thoughts and issues which both need to deal with as they find themselves in a new place emotionally. The Bailey brothers are a help, and yet also challenging.

I love the writing of these talented authors, and always enjoy catching up with old friends as well as discovering new relationships. This story ends on a knife edge, but the next two are due for release quite quickly, so I am holding my breath for a great next installment.
