A one night stand.
A secret.
A mistake they tried to forget.

On leave from the army, Tyler Dare was just looking for a little fun, but his sister’s best friend is off limits. But 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.

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

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.


  • Kept me entertained

    The only thing that bothered me is when she wrote about Waffle House. If your going to write about an actual restaurant at least google the menu. They don’t have pancakes or home style potatoes.

    I’m looking forward to reading the next one in the series.
  • An emotional romance

    By PattiA810
    Another steamy Dare man finding love with a woman he least expected because he has treated her so harshly over the years. This romance brings two people with painful pasts together to heal, to forgive and to find a partner to stand with. Sweet, sad and romantic.

    I wish there was more to each one of these book and the series. I would love to know what happened with Tyler and Elle
  • Eh

    Football player turns his life around due to injury. Love interest needs to be convinced he's changed. Had potential, but the author lost me with their unending hornyness during serious situations.

    Ella has known Tyler for years. His sister and her have been best friends since both donated bone marrow when they were children. When she turned 18 she got drunk and slipped into Tyler's bed. They parted on less than friendly terms and have avoided each other for years.Tyler doesn't think he'll ever settle down because he has a habit of running instead of facing his problems. He and his brother own a security company and do quiet well for themselves, but they are Dares so they come from money. Ella has been in St. Lucia for a photo shoot with her boss. Everyone has left and Ella stays behind to make sure no problems arise. But she is mugged and lands in a hospital as a hurricane is about to hit. So her best friend Avery, Tyler's sister, begs him to go down and take of her. When she is released, someone has broken into her hotel room. They have to wait until the hurricane is over before they can leave. Once back home, someone breaks into her apartment and Tyler moves her in with him. He is slowly realizing he may not be able to live without her. But first they've got to find out who is after her and Ella has her own insecurities to deal with. Between sisters having babies, facing their fathers, and someone who thinks Ella has something they want...it's a story you can't put down. The sex is out of this world hot. Two people learning to share their burdens and rely on each other. I love Ms. Phillips stories. They are entertaining and sexy. I hope Serena gets her own story. If she hasn't already.
  • Sweet Read

    By kathyesf
    This was a sweet easy read, no angst just a second chance for love. They have known each other since they were kids and after one night together he has avoided her now she is in trouble and needs him to get her out. Once he is with her he realizes that he has been wrong to stay away all these years. Throw in some mystery and drama and you have an overall good read.
