New Release Review: Dare to Resist by Laura Kaye (Wedding Dare #0.5)

I can’t wait for the rest of this series!

Dare to Resist
by Laura Kaye

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dare to Resist is the novella kick-off to the Wedding Dare series (Kady and Colt’s wedding happens to be the nuptials on which the series is based)–and if it’s any indication, this series is going to be fantastic!

(It’s shameful that I haven’t read anything else by this author yet, I know. I have a signed book–North of Need. I have Hard as It Gets on audio. I saw her in person at the Baltimore Book Festival and she was awesome. I am such a slacker–but plan to mend my ways. SOON.)

Cady and Colt are competing for the same military contract, which in itself makes their relationship a whole lot of fun. Add to that, though, that Colt’s her brother’s best friend and she had a huge crush on him when they were growing up? Yeah, total romance reader catnip. This one practically had my name scrawled across it in huge shiny red letters. With a nice, big smiley face heart for punctuation.

Kaye throws these two together here rather creatively–inclement weather, shoddy hotel construction, and a truly horrifying alternate potential roommate for Colt all do their part. As a bonus, it’s a book that finally brings the two together. (I just love when authors and/or books take key roles in stories, don’t you? So. Fun.)

It’s a short, steamy read and oh so satisfying.

The rest of the series is due out next month, with full-length stories written by Tessa Bailey, Samanthe BeckDiane Alberts, and Katee Robert. There’s just enough time to pick this one up first!

Rating: 4 stars / A-
