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?

I loved this one! First book in a new series, but with a hero who's story we've been waiting on for a long time! Jason Dare tries not to let anyone too close. He's got his giant family, and his 2 "brothers" and best friends, and that's all the room he's got for caring about, and worrying about people. After they lost the 4th member of their pack back in college, in a very tragic, and unexpected way, he closed himself off to letting anyone else into his heart. He owns a nightclub with his 2 best friends in NYC, and they're looking for a way to break away from the crowd and make their mark. While on his way to a business meeting one night, he spots a woman on the side of the road with a flat tire, and stops to help. That choice will change his life forever, in so many different ways. Faith Lancaster has had a rough life. She just lost her mom, who was the only family she had after her dad split when she was a kid, and her brother was lost to them due to his drug addiction. But after her mom's death, her brother showed back up for what he thought was coming to him, only to find out their mother disinherited him, knowing he would just blow it all on drugs. He was furious, and he attacked Faith. So, she packed up and left the next day, moved to the big city, and changed her last name, hoping he could never find her. She's started her own candy shop, where she makes everything herself, and she's having some success. She wants to grow her business more, but the flat tire on her delivery van sure isn't helping. When a sexy man in an expensive suit stops to help her, she's not sure what to think of him. Jason and Faith have chemistry right out of the gate, but they both have their reasons for keeping their distance. Jason is determined that no one and nothing can get under his skin ever again. Faith is afraid if her brother finds her, he'll hurt her again, or hurt others she's close to, to get to her. Especially after her tire is slashed, and her candy shop is vandalized, she fears he's already found her, and now she's just waiting and hoping that she can stay safe from him. When Jason finds out she needs even more help than he realized, he's determined to keep her safe, and moves her into his place. They have tension. SO MUCH TENSION. And when it finally breaks, it is glorious fireworks. There was a side plot here with Jason’s parents pending divorce, and how that was affecting everyone. I finally felt like I had a real feel for Savannah, Jason’s mom, after all this time of just being the “other woman” in most of the earlier Dare series books. I felt bad for her and the terrible situation she found herself in, and how she chose to deal with it made me like her a lot more. The other side characters here were some of our favorites from the Dare family, as well as Jason’s best friends, who will be the heroes of the next 2 books. I’m very intrigued by the connection the three of them have, and how the other two guys will come to terms with falling in love. All 3 of them hardened their hearts in different ways after their best friend’s/brother’s death, and I can’t wait to see them both open up again, like Jason did in this book. Kicking and screaming all the way, of course! I really loved this story of 2 damaged people, finding happiness and completion in each other, and making each other, and themselves, so much better in the process. I always recommend this author’s words, but I adored this one so very much!

I absolutely loved this book and it's sexy hero Jason Dare! This is a fantastic start to a new series that still includes a lot of characters we already know and love. We've certainly heard about Jason (Jase) but he is definitely now a favorite of mine for sure after getting to know him. He is totally swoonworthy. Gorgeous, protective and so tortured by his past that he doesn't think he can ever have what so many in his own family have come to find, real everlasting love. Jason and his his two best friends, Landon and Tanner own Club TEN29. The reason they chose this name is really special. Faith is the owner of Sweet Treats, a candy store, which makes Jason's nicknames for her that much more adorable. Faith is on the run, but from whom is what will shock you. A chance meeting with Jase, obvious chemistry and a quick connection and soon he decides she is his to protect. Only he doesn't think he can keep her once the danger is over. But can he? Loved their story from beginning to end! Can't wait for Tanner's book next!

Oh, I just loved those Dare's! We finally get Jason Dare's story. Jason is part owner of a thriving New York City nightclub, Club TEN29, with his two best friends, Landon Bennett and Tanner Grayson. On the way home from the club one night, Jason happens upon a curvy blonde kicking the tire of an old van and he pulls over to offer help. He wasn't expecting to be captivated by the ravishing beauty. Instantly Jason is attracted to Faith Lancaster and for some reason feels very protective of her. Jason asks Faith out and she turns him down. Of course Jason is not one to give up and decides to head to her candy shop. Once he sees that her store has been vandalized he jumps into protector mode, not taking no for an answer. Faith is very attracted to Jason but because of issues from her past she doesn't want to get him dragged into trouble. Too bad Jason doesn't listen and he jumps right in. Next thing Faith knows she is moving into Jason apartment (only for protections) and spending a lot of time alone with him! Of course things heat up very quickly and what goes from a casual hookup turns into something much more. It will take a lot for these two commitment-phobes to actually realize what they want in life is right in front of them but they finally decide to go after what they want so they can get their happy ever after. I loved this story. Both of the characters were so fun and together they were perfect! Their chemistry was off the charts too! I love revisiting some of the other Dare's in this story too! I can't wait for the next book!

Wowza, straight outta the gate this is a fast-paced, fast love story! You get action, you get mystery and oh how you get the heat. This is the story of Jason and Faith.  A chance meeting, a damsel in distress and then you get the swoons. Faith is starting over, running from a past that is ugly.  She finds herself falling for an alpha with a possessive streak. Jason is the epitome of alpha male.  He is handsome, he is a take-charge kind of guy and he sees a woman in need in Faith.  But he has scars of his own and he doesn't want the feels that comes with knowing and wanting Faith. I always enjoy reading Ms. Phillips stories and this is no exception!

Sexy Dare (The Sexy Series, #1) by Carly Phillips ... Can I just say...thank you Carly for giving me another Dare I can't live without. (and for letting me preview this book). Jason Dare (owner of Club TEN29 with his two best friends ..Tanner and Landon) Faith Lancaster (owner of Sweet Treats and running from a problem in her past) Neither of them is looking for a relationship...well we know how that works for them.... This book grabbed me from the beginning and I didn't want it to end...I laughed, I cried, there is mystery, angst, catching up with other Dare's and friends, lots of steam and feelings all getting us to a HEA. Looking forward to Sexy Hers (The Sexy Series Book 2) the next book in the series Tanner's story. Reasons I enjoyed this book: Easy-to-read Great world building Romantic Happily Ever After some tears Steamy Wonderful characters Entertaining Page-turner Witty

Finally we get the story of Jason Dare! We have had the stories of all the other Dare siblings, cousins, half siblings, and, oh my, who is next...Jason, he is uber sexy and worth the wait! Just as he is on his way to meet Gabe (remember him, a cousin from a previous series) he spies a damsel in distress on the side of the road and absolutely has to stop and help. After getting his hands dirty changing a tire, she gifts him with some of her candies which he shares with Gabe and soon Faith is brought into the fold (so to speak) by way of her business (though it is the perfect way for Jason to get to see her again since she turned down a date. With Faith's life in jeopardy, Jason steps up and brings her into his home and he turns protective and moves her into his home. This is supposed to be only until her brother is found and the danger is over but when feelings become involved it anything can happen. I so enjoyed this story and cannot wait to watch the other partners in TEN29 to fall! Tanner and Landon and going to be fun to watch get theirs! **Received this ARC for review**

***4.5 Stars*** I totally devoured this baby. I couldn’t (*cough* wouldn’t) put it down. Jason and Faith were all kinds of fun, sweet, swoon worthy and smexy and I NEEDED to see them get their HEA (Yes, I know the book wasn’t going anywhere, but once I’m in. I’m ALL. IN.) and was quite happy with how things worked out! I adored Jason and Faith, Faith a tinsy bit more, but the difference is minor in the big scheme of things. Faith is strong, determined and simply a sweetheart. She doesn’t back down easily and yet she isn’t one to turn down help just to soothe her pride. Jason is complex. He loves hard and will do anything for those he calls his own, but works very hard at keeping everyone at arm’s length to protect his bruised heart. Faith and Jase’s journey to their HEA was a lot of fun, regardless of all that was going on around them. The chemistry between them was there from the start and only grew the more they were around each other. I loved their bantering, the smexy was HAWT and I really enjoyed how they opened up to each other about their pasts, wants and needs. There were a few bumps in the road for them, but I liked how they were handled and how everything worked out in the end. Sexy Dare was a fun read, even as it touched on some pretty heavy topics ~ which were all handled very well. The writing was engaging, the pacing was good and I loved the dual first person POV’s. I also loved seeing the various Dare family members pop in and out of the story as well as an interesting little nugget that was dropped on an ongoing secondary story. But I cannot wait for the next two books in this series. Landon and Tanner definitely have my attention and I’m totally looking forward to watching these two fall! ~ Copy provided by the author & voluntarily reviewed ~

**I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review** I'm a big fan of Carly Phillips Dare family, so I was excited that we were getting Jason's story in Sexy Dare! Jason Dare owns a nightclub with his two best friends and to say they are all workaholics is an understatement. They all have their reasons, one of which binds them all together, but Jason seems to have a truckload of them all on his own. He is haunted by several different situations and tragedies from his past and his plan is never to open his heart to anyone beyond the family and friends that are there now. That is until he comes across Faith on the side of the road. Faith Lancaster, a candy store owner, is the opposite of Jason. She wants to open herself up to love, but things in her life are in a state of upheaval because she's running from her past. When he ends up with a flat tire, Jason comes to her rescue. What she doesn't expect is for the sexy billionaire to want to continue to help her with her mounting problems even though he has no reason to. Jason and Faith are awesome characters and they are drawn to one another immediately. While neither is looking for a relationship, they are both struggling to battle the growing feelings they both have. Will this really have the expiration date they think it will or are they capable of going the distance? I really enjoyed this book and I am never unhappy to spend time in Carly Phillips world. It is always a great time!

Phillips shows a little slight of hand. Sexy Dare is a temptation, shrouded in mystery and daring enough to be bold. She needs a hero. He craves a purpose. What happens when a couple of strangers unwittingly stumble onto their heart's desire? Faith and Jason find themselves fighting a losing battle. Phillips thrusts readers into a tango of hearts that proves to be treacherous. Heartache, danger and romance await to stir up a bit of adventure in the soul.

Sweetness This is a great read and new series, but with a Dare man. I love the dares and this book did not disappoint. Jason and Faith are a great couple that you can’t help but root for. Getting to see some of the dare family in these reads is always great. I can’t wait to read the next few books in this series because Carly Phillips never disappoints. This was pure sweetness.
