DARE TO KISS

The worst thing that could happen to anyone has happened to 17-year-old Lacey Robinson–she found the murdered bodies of her mother and sister. Now she and her dad have moved across the country to start over in a new town where Lacey has three dreams: to conquer her debilitating PTSD, to play good enough high school baseball to get a scholarship, and to stay alive. Because evidently somebody doesn’t like her family.

She’s so not the “popular girl” type–at least not with the popular girls. But she makes male friends easily. Just not with sexy, moody Kade Maxwell. And yet…she’s drawn to him both as a person–a mysterious, yet kind person–and in a blind visceral way she’s never known before, not with her last boy friend, not even with hot quarterback Tyler, whose friendship with her has the cheerleaders sharpening their claws.

Once Kade gets over the gun and the shiner (just a misunderstanding!), he doesn’t want to let Lacey out of his sight. Because Kade has his own dark past. He and Lacey sense in each other that they’ve both experienced something too horrible to mention–and yet, each guards his or her own private tragedy like a state secret. Until their carefully constructed walls start to crumble. And then the mutual sparks ignite, creating a bonfire of love, hope, and passion.


DARE TO DREAM

S.B. Alexander’s escalating love story takes a suspenseful–yet ever more passionate– turn as the two embark on much more than a hot, temporary tryst. Despite her own tragedy, Lacey’s beauty, determination, and dedication make Kade believe he can dream again–she’s the only one who can take him to a perfect place where nothing else matters. Not even trauma-induced migraines, or his long-standing feud with Sullivan and Seever–the numbskulls responsible for putting Kade in jail and one of his triplet brothers in the hospital. And by the way, all the Maxwell boys are searing hot and scary smart, blessed with both brains and muscles…

For her part, Lacey longs fiercely for a future with Kade, but her long-term dream of a baseball scholarship must come first, and now there’s something even more immediate—she’s desperate to solve the brutal unsolved murders of her family. Because during a trip back to California, Lacey finds her family may have a dark secret it’s kept from her–threatening ties to the mob. And then she finds herself face-to-face with the killer she’s dreamed of cornering.



DARE TO LOVE

“I’m a knight in shining armor, I’m Prince Charming on a steed; I am Superman and Rocky, hell I’m all you’ll ever need.” Thus begins Kelton Maxwell’s sarcastic ode to love. An impossibly sexy, cocky, charming college playboy, Kelton’s got the world by the balls–and he has absolutely no interest in the trappings of romance–even if he’ll admit it’s made his big brother happy.

My Review:
Book 1: Dare to Kiss
OMG, why am I only discovering this series now? I just love those Maxwell boys! Very entertaining, well written, with a strong MC you can root for and a plethora of gorgeous boys. And I loved all the drama and angst.

Book 2: Dare to Dream
Another great read, and a fab conclusion to Kade and Lacey’s story. Loved how we had the same elements as book one with the addition of a suspenseful sub plot and some heart-in-the-mouth scenes that had me on the edge of my seat. Cannot wait to get stuck into Kelton’s story as he’s my next favorite Maxwell brother. Highly Recommended.

Book 3: Dare to Love
Kelton and Lizzie’s story – loved it. A great second chance friends to lovers romance. Dillon is a great new additional character and I wonder if we might get his story at some point in the future?
