One protective alpha male plus one curvy damsel in distress equals an instant attraction they can’t deny.

Billionaire nightclub owner Jason Dare doesn’t stand a chance. From the moment he lays eyes on the luscious blonde stuck on the side of the road and realizes she’s in danger, he goes from playboy to bodyguard.

Faith Lancaster’s sweet body won’t come to any harm on his watch. And watch Faith he does. He can’t take his eyes off her. Jason will stop at nothing to keep Faith safe. Even if it means moving her into his apartment and letting her into his once private life.

Hiding from her past, Faith has spent the last year building her candy business into a profitable company while keeping to herself and staying under the radar … until she meets the delicious Mr. Dare. Alpha and irresistible, he awakens desires she has long denied. It doesn’t take her long to succumb to his charms and fall hard for the man.

They both have their reasons for keeping things casual but when Faith’s past catches up with her, can Jason finally claim the woman meant to be his?

Book one in an exciting new series from Carly Phillips and I couldn’t wait to dive in. As expected Sexy Dare was well written and had me invested from the first to the last chapter. Jason Dare is a part owner in nightclub ClubTen29, footloose and fancy free he has no plans to settle down, ever. That is until fate lends a hand in the form of Faith Lancaster who runs a candy shop. Jason is hot and most definitely swoon worthy, a man it would be easy to fall for. Faith is trying to hide from her drug addicted brother and has no time for a relationship so when Jason suggests a no strings relationship she agrees, after all why not have a little fun? What will happen when Faith’s past catches up with her? Will Jason be able to protect her? I loved the camaraderie and friendship with the other club owners, his best friends, Tanner Grayson and Landon Bennett which added an extra layer to the story that Ms. Phillips wove. The chemistry between Jason and Faith is scorching and you could almost feel the flames burn you as you read. Sexy Dare is a highly entertaining story and I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

A quick short read but not lacking any steam or sexiness! Faith is trying to start over in life after the loss of her mother. Jason is a knight in shining armor but doesn’t do long term romance. Love me some of the Dare family! Can’t wait to see how Tanner and Landon’s story unfolds! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

The moment Jason Dare spots a beautiful blonde stranded alongside the road he knows he has to stop, and once he does, upon further inspection of said blonde, he is so happy he decided to be a good samaritan. She is witty, gorgeous, feisty and smart... totally someone he would love to spend quality time with. Faith Lancaster is doing all she can to get her business up and going, but when she heads out to do a delivery she discovers that her van tire has been slashed. And suddenly she feels the turmoil stirring up in her belly, because that means that there is a good chance that her past has caught up to her. But before she can get too worried about the tire, a sexy good Samaritan stops to help her. She does her best to try not to get wrapped up in his good looks and smooth words... but Jason Dare is a very convincing man! Sexy Dare is a scintillating and sultry little page-turner that will lure you in from the very first sentence, and hold you captive until the last. I loved what I found between the pages of this one, the words were mesmerizing and rich with emotion, and the characters were so easy to love. It had a good balance between steamy and heartfelt, it had me swimming in feels and swoons the whole way through. What a wonderful start to a new series, it was highly entertaining and left me aching for more, can't wait to see what the next installment holds! Highly recommend! I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.

I enjoyed this one a lot. I really liked Faith and her candy shop is a big draw for me. Jason, man does he grab at my heart. His back story will break your heart and it effects him. This confirmed bachelor may have just met his match when Faith comes into his world. Poor Faith keeps getting blows, but she may just found the person who can help change that. I really enjoyed Jason and Faith's journey. I read this one rather quickly. It made my heart happy to see the change Faith brings to Jason.

Fateful meeting brings Jason Dare to Faith when she has a flat tire. But what should have been a Good Samaritan meeting turns into so much more for these two. I love the Dare family books, and Jason’s is no exception. When these family members fall in love, they fall hard. Faith was not looking for a relationship, but when Jason puts himself in place as her unofficial bodyguard, she meets her match in stubbornness. And they definitely have some serious chemistry! Definitely another great book for Carly Phillips and a must read if you love her Dare family series! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This book was soo good!! I loved the Dare series, and getting the last family members book was so exciting! Jason and Faith were great together. Their chemistry was fantastic, and even with each of them fighting battles of their past, they overcome. It was the perfect amount of drama thrown in, and I loved catching up with the Dare family. A great read I would highly recommend

Jason isn't looking for love and believes it will never happen for him. With his father's past always in his mind he hasn't had a roll model worth following. Faith is all about building her business and trying to keep her past in the past. She doesn't want to get involved with anyone because she doesn't want to put them in harm's way. When Jason sees a beautiful woman with a flat tire he doesn't feel like he can just pass her by. He stops and does the right thing, helping her out and moving on. The problem with moving on is that now he can't get her out of his head. It looks like Faith's past is catching up with her, first a flat tire and is vandalism to her store front. When Jason learns that Faith is in danger he becomes her protector but let's it be known he isn't looking for love. Faith agrees to let Jason help her but worries her feelings are more than he can handle. Follow along as these two both say the right thing to each other but sorry about what they are actually feeling. Will they ever be able to open up to each other and let love in or will they just let it pass them by. This was a lovely and touching romance and an absolutely great read!

We have read about the men who own the NY nightclub called TEN29 in prior books about the Dare families and now is Jason Dare’s story...he’s a sexy, alpha, confirmed bachelor, determined to make their nightclub the best of the best but he needs a new angle to make that happen..what he doesn’t expect is stopping to help some ladies change a tire and find the woman who changes his life for the better... Faith Lancaster, hiding from her past and is working to build her candy business up, ends up with a flat tire and when a sexy, handsome man stops to help sparks fly...but she has to stay under the radar and she just knows that won’t happen if he gets mixed up with her knight in a sexy suit! What happens next between these two will keep you turning pages, wondering when the shoe will drop, keeping her safe from her past, moving from the past into the future and opening their hearts to a HEA...

Usually love Carley Phillips and have enjoyed the "Dare" family. This story was super short. Only 120 pages on nook. Felt rushed along. Not a detailed story. Just a brief summary.

Jason and Faiths love story in Sexy Dare, book one in The Sexy series by Carly Phillips is another winner. Ms. Phillips once again gives us a protective alpha male hero wanting to save a damsel in distress. Jason Dare never stood a chance once he noticed the curvy blonde stuck on the side of the road; especially when he realized she was in danger. Candy maker Faith Lancaster spends all her time building her business while keeping to herself; hiding from her troubled brother. Meeting Jason awakens desires that she has long denied. Jason is concerned for her safety and being an alpha male, becomes her bodyguard, her roommate, and soon her lover. As these two sexy people spend more and more time together, they fall hard for each other as the electricity sparks and grows. Facing her past makes Faith stronger as she realizes how much she deserves a man like Jason Dare in her life. Ms. Phillips wrote a wonderfully emotional and sexy story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sexual chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters giving Jason and Faith a chance for happiness, love and a future together. I highly recommend Sexy Dare to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

SEXY DARE is the first instalment in Carly Phillips contemporary, adult THE SEXY erotic, romance series, a cross-over with the author’s DARE series. This is billionaire nightclub owner Jason Dare, and twenty-five year old, candy maker Faith Lancaster’s storyline. SEXY DARE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the DARE series is revealed where necessary. Several characters cross-over for cohesion and familiarity. Told from dual third person perspectives (Jason and Faith) SEXY DARE follows the building relationship between billionaire nightclub owner Jason Dare, and twenty-five year old, candy maker Faith Lancaster. Faith Lancaster owns the candy story Sweet Treats, and is hoping some of the local merchants will help promote and sell her candy but a flat tire finds Faith in need of assistance, a flat tire that looks suspicious to our storyline hero. Enter billionaire nightclub owner Jason Dare, the man with whom Faith would fall in love. What ensues is the building relationship between Jason and Faith, and the potential fall-out as their time together draws to a close. Faith Lancaster is in hiding from her past but her past is about to destroy her well-ordered world. After a series of attacks against her business and home, Jason offers up his apartment to our storyline heroine, an offer that brings our couple closer together. Jason Dare doesn’t do relationships in the aftermath of his father’s numerous affairs and revelations of a secret family but watching his siblings find their own happily ever after finds Jason pining for a future with the woman that calls to his heart. The relationship between Faith and Jason is one of immediate attraction. Faith is a woman who is trying to stay one step ahead of her past, a past that is demanding everything and more. When Jason offers up the safety and solitude of his own private quarters, Faith finds herself falling for a man who refuses to fall for anyone else. The chemistry is sizzling; the $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and passionate without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. We are introduced to Jason’s business partners at Club TEN29- Tanner Grayson and Landon Bennett: Jason’s sister Sienna and brother in law Ethan Knight: his cousin Gabriel Dare and wife Izzy; Faith’s employee Kelsey Johnson; and Faith’s brother Colton. SEXY DARE is a story of vengeance, greed and betrayal; family, friendship, romance and love. The premise is engaging and captivating; the characters are energetic, dynamic, flirty and sassy; the romance is seductive and steamy. SEXY DARE is a fast paced, spicy and spirited introduction to Carly Phillips’ new SEXY series.

4.5 Stars for Sexy Dare Book 1 in The Sexy Series. This is book 1 in a new series but it could be considered a spin off from the Dare Series, that being said you do not have to have read and any previous books to enjoy Jason Dare’s story. Jason Dare is part owner of the successful Club Ten29 nightclub with his best friends Tanner Grayson and Landon Bennett and life is looking good, he has no plans to settle down and he is not looking for a relationship until he came across Faith Lancaster. Faith runs her own candy shop and when she leaves work one night to find her van has a flat tyre snd she is grateful to the hot swoon worthy man who stops to help her out, enter Jason Dare...... Faith is trying to stay under everyone’s radar and she is in hiding from her drug addicted brother so the last thing on her mind is a relationship but when Jason explains he is not the setting down type of guy she decides why not have some no strings attached fun with the man who has come to her rescue on more than one occasion..... Two people looking to have some no strings attached fun certainly not looking for love end up finding true love as they get to know each whilst having some fun under the sheets. Sizzling chemistry and some natural banter make this a great read, it ticked all my boxes and I can’t wait for book 2 which I’m assuming will be either Tanner or Landon’s story.

SQUEEE! Phillips has a great new series on her hands, and the fact that it's a spin-off of the Dare series we already know and love is even better. Jason has closed himself off from love and feels the need to protect everyone in his life after a terrible tragedy in his past. When he comes across Faith trying to change a tire on the side of the road, sparks start to fly and soon Faith is one of those in Jason's protection. Can he come to terms with his past and allow her past his walls? While this one was a touch insta-lovey, Phillips wrote it as an intense chemistry attraction, so it was believable. I did have to suspend disbelief for a while because I know it would have taken me a lot longer to trust Jason if I were in Faith's shoes, but it was a great read. It was quick but still had plenty going on and we got to catch up with some old friends. I can't wait for the other club owners to meet their matches!

This was a wonderful, swoon worthy romance. This is Jason and Faith's story and in no time flat, I was fully engaged and actively rooting for this couple. I fell totally in love with these characters. I loved how curvy girl Faith might have needed help but she was no fainting damsel just standing around hoping for a knight to save her. She was strong, determined, smart, talented and simply just a real sweetheart. Although I adored Jason (because: hot, protective hero alert), I did think that he was harder to connect with. His painful history, fears and self-doubt made him create and maintain very well fortified walls to prtect himself. I honestly found it quite heartbreaking that a man that loved so hard and well felt such a desperate need to protect his heart. An excellent read and a enticing start to this new series. I can't wait for more.

I love the Dare's and excited that we get to start the Sexy Series with Jason! I loved his background and the way this series spins off from the family we come to love. I have a feeling there is a lot of emotional feelings coming our way! Faith and Jason are a match made from the start. Their chemistry that started as a spark becomes an inferno. You will come to love and hate the way Jason beats around the bush. But then it happens. Jason puts his heart on the line and spills his secrets to Faith and it all falls into place. I loved the characters and the set up of this story. Sexy Dare is highly addicting and will have your heart beating fast!

The Sexy Series includes three books which appear to be related to the Dare books by the first main character in book one, Sexy Dare. Jason Dare is making a name for himself in the nightclub scene. He wants to grow the business that he started with his best friends. On his way to get advice from his cousin he comes upon a stranded beauty. His alpha protective instincts come into play as he realizes she's in over her head. Faith Lancaster is trying to make a name for herself in the candy business with her shop Sweet Treats. The last thing she needs is her past creating havoc in her carefully put together world. Jason wants to protect her and she's too smart to try to proceed without help. And trying to resist the charms of a Dare is near impossible.

I just love the Dare family. Jason Dare owns a night club with two of his friends, which they opened in honor of a friend they all lost in college. Due to this lost and his father Jason feels like he can not give his heart to anyone. Faith has had her share of problems and didn't trust easy. But when she has a flat tire and Jason stops to help, the attraction is instantaneous charged. I laughed, I cried and did not want to put this book down once I started reading it. I love Carly's books and the Dare family. I encourage you to read them, they will not disappoint. I was given an ARC of this book, and this is my opinion, but I know you will share it once you read the book. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This series, sort of a spin- off from the Sexy Series start with Jason and Faith, they are a great couple, they had the chemistry from the start, their bantering and romance was all there. He is one that loves hard, had trust issues and a big loss in his life, she is sweet, strong and determined. It was a fun read, romance and a bit of suspense added. Will be looking forward for more in this new series.

4 1/2 STARS! An on-fire connection, wickedly delicious nights together and hearts becoming more invested as each day passes! SEXY DARE is book one in the highly anticipated Sexy Series from Carly Phillips and for all of you die-hard Dare fans out there, it's Jason's story! A sexy candy maker meets billionaire nightclub owner and it becomes a race against time to keep her safe when her past comes rearing it's ugly head. Jason is an appealing character. We know some his family background from previous Dare stories, but we learn a bit more of him personally and what's happened in his past to make him become so emotionally closed off. There's no question that he's an extremely nice guy and reaches out to help Faith instantly, so it's a treat to watch him learn to feel again as their relationship progresses. Faith caught the reader's eye quickly. She obviously had secrets right from the start, and someone was beginning to play games with her. Jason steps in to protect her and she quickly shares her past with him so he knows what they are dealing with. Overall, it was a really sexy, fun read and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a fast paced drama with lots of sexy romance taking center stage. There was a touch of intrigue, lots of steamy goodness and just a bunch of good-hearted people in the mix. I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to the next in the series!

Faith is building her business the best she knows how. All while trying to stay hidden from the danger she knows is trying to find her. When she meets a hot guy willing to be of help it is such a nice change of pace. But a risk she may need to avoid. Jason AKA "Jase" Has been wanting to bring his business up to the next level. After a chance encounter helping a damsel in distress, he gets the courage to ask his business partners to take the risk with him. Now he just needs to man up and take the risk in asking her out too. This was a slower start than I expected. I like that the characters were very compelling. They had more to their story, and really did need each other. Then there were the sparks between them that kept the heat simmering until it erupts into flame. Such a good read. ***This ARC copy was given in exchange for an honest review.
