DARE TO DESIRE                                       CARLY PHILLIPS

Dare to Desire (Dare to Love, #2)Quarterback Alex Dare, had it all -- an all-star football career with the Tampa Breakers and his choice of willing women -- until a severe injury forces him into early retirement. When he is offered a ground-breaking position with a rival team, he’s intrigued, but there’s a catch. He’ll be working alongside the same woman he hasn’t been able to get out of his head for too long. 

Social worker Madison Evans grew up in foster homes and knows first hand what it means to have-not. She isn't impressed by Alex Dare’s wealth or charm. Not since she fell hard for him once before, only to discover she was just one of his too-easy conquests. This time around Madison refuses to succumb to Alex so easily. 

But Alex wants Madison. And if there is one thing Alex does well, it’s to get what he wants. The playboy athlete must prove he’s got game in more places than on the field. He means to prove that he’s a changed man but no sooner does he begin to break through Madison’s defenses when a new opportunity comes knocking and threatens her new-found trust. Can he make Madison take a risk and dare to love?

Alex Dare is a Pro Quarterback at an all pro level. He is injured and his career is over, and so is most of the people that were in his life. After kicking everyone out and just being a …. He offered a job from another team to work in a rival he agrees but the catch is he is working with Madison Evans. The history they have goes way back and she was the first person he took his anger out in the hospital and neither want to see the other one, but she really wants this new program to work so she is willing to work with him just for this reason and this reason only. She knows her friend and his sister in law had a hand in this but if it works so be it. What starts off as auguring slowly turns into him remembering the person he was and wanting to make up for what he said and what he did. She is making him work for everything. Once it looks like they are back on the road to being a couple again he is offered another job at playing quarterback and she tells him she is through, for the doctors already told him one more hit and over for good no walking. His choice now. The girl and job he agreed to or blow everything for wanting to play a game one more time. A good story full of passion and suspense even for a love story. Read the book to find out what happens. I got this book from net galley.  I give this 4 stars.
