This is the 8th book in the Dare To Love series. This book can be read as a standalone. The reading of the books, in order, adds to the enjoyment and understanding of the series.
Max Savage and Lucy Dare have known each other for years. Lucy does not want a fling, but that has not stopped her from lusting after him. Her feelings have been put on hold, since she does not want to be with someone who could hurt her again.
Max has been in love with Lucy as long as he can remember. He has avoided chasing after her, since he is good friends with her brothers. He does not want to risk all that he has with the Dare family. When they give him the green light to go after her, he decides that winner takes all.
They are so good together, even though they both have secrets from the past that are needing to be communicated. The banter is good, the sexy times are hot, and the story is just a genuine good love story! This is a definite keeper for my shelf!! I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
