    Oh so sweet, maddening, and sexy! So many old hurts to get through and new challenges to overcome but love does manage to win!
  • Really Good

    By PattiA810
    I love how Avery finds strength and determination to overcome her anxieties especially when she lets herself open up to Grey. Her scene with her father, Robert Dare is such a needed release of emotions that Avery, I think comes to her fullest potential and Grey is right beside her and never giving up. They're a great couple that gets their second chance to be together.

    Once again Carly Phillips has written an emotional story with engaging characters. Her storytelling and ability to engage the reader with intricately drawn protagonists is just one reason I keep coming back for each new addition to the series. Strongly recommend!
  • Overall an okay read.

    I have read all the other books in this series and have loved, liked and disliked some. This one falls in the like category. I enjoy second chance stories and watching the characters find their happy ending. Overall I liked the story of Avery and Grey. That being said, I do feel that the character development and backstory was lacking some. I wish more time had been devoted to the characters relationship and plot of the story. As you know this is her erotic series so of course there is sexual content; however, I feel that there was too much for the length of the story. It went from one sex scene to another when I was hoping for some actual story development. As for the stalking storyline I figured out who was behind it early on, so the wrap up of that was not a surprise. Overall an okay read.
  • Loved it!

  • Another great addition to a fantastic series!!!

    Avery Dare, the darling of the original Dare family, started having panic attacks when her father's double life was revealed to the public when she was a child. She doesn't like large outdoor crowds and prefers to be around friends and family. When Grey Kingston, rock star and Avery's high school ex, shows up and makes it known that he's leaving the band and he wants her back, what will she do? Can she handle being in the spotlight with a rockstar? The paparazzi? The stalkers? Carly Phillips has done it again! This is another amazing addition to the Dare to Love series. My big question is, when will Robert Dare get a clue? He acts like everything that happened shouldn't bother his first family. And Grey? Way to go! He could give guys a lesson on being a VERY attentive boyfriend. The story was great all around. It flowed at the perfect pace and we got to see most of the Dare siblings. I can't wait for the next book in this fantastic series. Review copy provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review.

  • Dare To Love A Hot Rocker

    By coffeegoddesstmk
    Grey Kingston is every girl's fantasy. The lead singer of Tangled Royal, he's got the fame and the name to prove to himself and everyone else that he has what it takes to be a success. Avery Dare is the girl that Grey left behind. But now he's back and determined to show her that he's worth a second chance. I love the DARE series by Carly Phillip. DARE TO ROCK, the seventh book in the series, is just as delicious as the previous ones. I love the whole convoluted Dare family history, and have enjoyed getting to know each of the members. As one of Robert Dare's children, Avery knows what it's like to be in the public eye. Forced at a young age to deal with her father's fallibility, it has taken Avery a long time to recognize her own worth. When Grey returns to Miami and wants to start their relationship where they left off, Avery is not sure that she can trust him. But Grey will do anything to prove to her that he's finished with the life of a rock star, and that his future is with her. I really like Grey and Avery. He's aware of the mistakes that he's made, and is ready to step up and make amends. He's smart, sexy, genuine, and very much in love with Avery. He's also not afraid to stand up to her very alpha brothers, which is nice to see. And Avery has overcome a lot of obstacles to get to where she is. She recognizes the things holding her back, and really takes strides to overcome them so that she can be who she wants to be, and so that she can be with Grey. DARE TO ROCK is a speedy read, entertaining, and full of memorable moments with the Dares. I highly recommend this book, as well as the entire series. 5 'hot rock star boyfriend' stars for this one. Read these books!
