Dare to Resist: guest post, review + giveaway

Welcome to the Wedding Dare Tour!

I love soldiers in my romance reads. They're imbued with all the authority of uniforms, and all the daring of warriors. Plus, that trustworthy, strong side of theirs is so sexy!

Competing for a computer security job, these two almost-lovers share a smart, fun banter that goes way back. They have a lot of pent-up sexual frustration and longing for each other since they've known each other for a long time.

Dare to Resist, by Laura Kaye, is a fairly long novella which allows plenty of room to set up the situation and to get to know the characters as well. Which is pretty awesome as the story takes place during a day at most.

The writing style is good and funny and conveys absolutely the right mood. I always appreciate that the couple has a past so I can learn about their relationship up until now and accept their current feelings, why they are what they are, through memories and dialogues and reactions. It felt so real and sweet and far from insta-love-lust.

And the sexuality? Oh, mama. Sizzling, passionately intense, and in no-small-amount absorbing. Deliciously scary too. It entails some kinky intimate stuff so it might deter some readers at first, but I assure you it's all manageable if you're not much into it. After all, the characters trust each other, they care and would never hurt the other physically or emotionally. The intimacy is full of hot games and chases and rough fantasy, though it's not dark. It's beautiful and hot. Especially because there is a deep and meaningful connection between Colton and Kady. They want to be seen and accepted for who they are. The fact that they finally find all their desired and emotional needs completely satisfied by the person they'd already fallen for makes it the more blissful and fulfilling.

I'd recommend this story to everyone who likes romance spiked with a little daring into unknown territories, but be reassured that it's also overflowing with tender, real characters with doubts and yearnings, and who are very much in love. In addition, the ending is cute, so cute!


5 Best Ways to have fun at a wedding without ruining it

We’re so thrilled to be here today to share the stories in our sizzling new Wedding Dare continuity series! A continuity refers to stories by different authors that take place at the same time or one right after the other, sharing characters, settings, and plots. The Wedding Dare series kicked off with Laura Kaye’s Dare to Resist, which tells the story of how the bride and groom fell in love, and continues with the brand new and crazy hot releases of:

Best Man with Benefits by Samanthe Beck
Falling for the Groomsman by Diane Alberts
Baiting the Maid of Honor by Tessa Bailey
Seducing the Bridesmaid by Katee Robert

Since June is the month for weddings, we thought it might be fun to share our top 5 ways to have fun at a wedding without ruining it! LOL! So, here we go:

Tessa Bailey:
Kicking up your heels! There’s no better time to dance than a wedding. Something about the atmosphere loosens everyone’s inhibitions and makes it A-okay to try out that moonwalk you’ve been practicing.

Katee Robert:
Eat the cake. Drink until the cha-cha slide seems like a good idea. Muscle some of those girls out of the way so you can catch the bouquet. Dance! Just dance and dance and dance.

Samanthe Beck:
I’ll take a page from my heroine Sophie’s handbook and say, try something new! Run through the sprinklers. Climb a rock wall. Wear a sexy red dress. (Anything except Jaeger shots, ‘cause that never ends well).

Diane Alberts:
 Drink, but don’t drink so much you’re sick. When you drink moderately, you’re probably more fun. Dance, even if you can’t dance. Laugh, and have fun. Talk loudly. It’s a night to celebrate love--and isn’t that why we all read romance? Because we love love?

Laura Kaye:
 I have to go with dancing, too! When else do you get to dance to Oh, What a Night by the Four Seasons??? LOL Also, eat cake. Cake is always fun.

So, how’d we do? Do you agree with our ideas?
Suggest some of your own!

She's the one fire he can't put out...

Jamie Lansing has had it bad for firefighter Smith Grayson for as long as they've been friends. Yes, he's ridiculously charming and she might stare a little too long at his abs, but his dirty-talking, rough-around-the-edges ways aren't for her. Plus, she knows that as a serial dater, Smith isn't the type to settle down. But then a terrible, fantastic, mind-blowing mistake leaves her body craving more than one night.

Smith Grayson has only ever had eyes for one woman in town--his best friend Jamie. But convincing her a relationship between them will work is next to impossible with her refusing to see beyond his past. But when she asks for a week of no-strings-attached sex to get him out of her system, Smith knows this is his one chance to prove he's not just the man she needs in her bed, but the man she needs in her life.
