About this ebook

Enjoy this angsty sports romance novel by bestselling romance author S.B. Alexander…


I had the perfect life. The perfect family. The perfect future.

Until one terrifying night when everything was ripped from me.


Now I'm trying to sew back the pieces, but it's hard when I'm haunted by nightmares and faced with a bully who does everything to shatter my future. 


Then I met him...


Kade Maxwell, tall, broad, and walks with a sense of purpose that stops me in my tracks. He makes my mouth water and my belly tingle. Through his own pain, he shows me that I'm stronger than I think. I'm not so sure. There are too many obstacles. Too many triggers, and when his enemy uses me as a pawn to get to Kade, everything I’ve worked hard to overcome begins to crumble.


Now it’s fight or flight and our relationship is on the line.


Dare to Kiss is the first novel in the Maxwell Series. Be prepared for all the feels, a family of brothers who put their hearts on the line, the women who snag their attention, steamy times, romantic stories, family drama, and a guaranteed happily ever after.

"This book was sweet and sad on many levels. What I loved most was Lacey's kick butt attitude. She does not let anyone get away with anything.

I loved every aspect of this book which why I highly recommend it." -Bbsbookreviews

"Cute, fun and a little sassy with a bit of tragedy acting as the cherry on top of the New Adult sundae, Dare to Kiss has a bit of the old strung into the new. Overall this was a book about sticking together. Friends. Family. It was about getting through the hard times, learning to trust, healing. Never giving it. It was refreshing." -No Bent Spines

"Ever have that moment when a book is so good that you're trying to read and work at the same time? You're so invested that you're reading in between stop lights? Yeah, that was me. It's more than a love-story. This is a book about overcoming obstacles, struggling through loss, tearing down walls and trusting the most vulnerable part of yourself, our heart." -Badass Beauties Book Club
