I love catching up with the Dare’s and I love this Dare Nation so I was excited when I heard we were getting Braden Prescott and Willow James’s second chance at love and let me just say this story was everything I expected and so much more. Braden left Willow a few years ago when he left to go overseas and worked with Doctors Without Borders, when he left he took a piece of Willow’s heart with him and now they are both back in the same town and working at the same organisation. When they meet again is obvious this couple still have feelings for each other, the chemistry is sizzling and the banter is witty but will that be enough for Willow to trust him one more time with the heart he has already broken ....... Dare to Stay is a sweet, fun romance with the perfect mix of passion and humour, it has all the feels and I went from laughing to smiling to swooning to crying and back to smiling again. I highly recommend this emotional, entertaining read and I’m sure once you meet the Dares you will want more from this family where loyalty, love and support are high on their list of priorities.

5 star review Dare To Stay (Dare Nation #4) by Carly Phillips Having read a number of books by Carly Phillips I really enjoy her style of writing. Dare to Stay ticked all the boxes for me, from Alpha males, to feisty heroines, to family love and support and I was fully invested from the first to the last page. This is Braden Prescott and Willow James’s second chance at love story and it was an entertaining and at times emotional read. Having been hurt and feeling betrayed when Braden left her to work with Doctors Without Borders she is shocked when he returns home. Braden has realized that he still loves Willow and knows that it will take time to earn her trust and love back, if it is even possible. The chemistry between Braden and Willow still sizzles and I loved the build up as they re built their relationship, it was humorous, sweet, romantic and steamy. Dare To Stay is a fast paced story that had me smiling, sighing and crying and got to me.

The is a wonderful Second Chance Romance by Author Carly Phillips. I have been waiting for this brother's book it seems like forever. Braden is the oddball of the family it seems. Most of the family is connected to sports in one way or another. Braden is a doctor. He left his girlfriend Willow to work with Doctors without Borders for a two-year stint and let's just say she was not happy and did not wait for him. Once that time was served he realized what he really wanted to do in his heart of hearts and it also lined up with the time that the Miami Thunder needed a Head Doctor. Willow his ex-girlfriend works for the Miami Thunder and will make it a path for Braden to try to win her back. It is not an easy thing and that is one of the things I love about this author. There are real-life situations in this book that had me unable to put this book down once I started reading it. I loved catching up with some of my favorite characters from past books and I am looking forward to new characters in future books as well.
