    I enjoyed this read. I liked the characters- a kindergarten teacher and a former cop. It was easy to believe that these characters were real people. If you are looking for a nice easy read, I would encourage this book!!!

    I started Dare To Hold this morning, and I couldn't put it down. Scott Dare (yum) is a hot, broody alpha hero, who has been screwed over in love in the past. Meg is a sweet heroine, who is trying to find her independent streak after life handed her a harsh reality. The chemistry between these two is hot, intense, and instant. It was awesome to see Meg and Scott grow, not only relationship wise, but to find themselves also. Love the glimpses we get to catch of characters from the previous Dare series, and how they make Meg feel welcomed. Filled with romance, a hot guy, a sweet girl, and a bit of suspense, this book has it all. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a hot, sexy romance read

  • Another Dare Hit!

    By Chrissy3562
    Dare to Hold by Carly Phillips is the latest story in the Dare family saga. Scott Dare met Meg Thompson in a hospital room, but there was an immediate attraction between them. Scott knew Meg was pregnant by her ex, but he went for it anyways. Meg had a history of picking the wrong men, so when she found out she was pregnant she was determined to do it on her own. Both Meg and Scott were strong willed people, but neither personality overwhelmed the other. I loved them as a couple and think that Carly couldn't have written two more perfect for each other characters. One of my favorite lines was when Riley (from Dare to Love) said that her husband was Scott times fifty on steroids and later adjusted that statement down to twenty five. I found myself smiling throughout the story and falling in love with Scott myself. My only complaint was Scott supposedly pulled away from Meg, but I didn't really feel that as a reader. In some ways it was good because I didn't want him to, but in others I didn't feel it was as strongly written as it could have been. Regardless of that one tiny complaint, I absolutely loved this book and give it 5 stars. Can't wait for more in the Dare series, and the teaser about Avery's story just made me want Dare to Rock even more. I recommend this book to all contemporary romance readers.
