The Daredevil, an all-new must-read Rivers Wilde Novella from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Dylan Allen and 1,001 Dark Nights is available now!
From Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Dylan Allen comes a new story in her Rivers Wilde series…
“I dare you to let me watch…”
It was the wickedest of propositions, made by the most devilish of men.
It doesn’t matter that Tyson Wilde has got a killer smile, wears a suit like it’s his job,
and oozes spine-tingling sex appeal. I should say no.
Because beneath the surface of that cool, disinterested exterior,
lies passion hot enough to burn. I danced too close to it once and have the scars to prove it.
So, on any other night, in any other city, and if he’d been even a fraction less mouthwatering,
I would have been able to resist.
But it’s my birthday, we’re in Paris, and it’s him.
I can’t say no.
I don’t want to say no.
And this time, no matter how right we feel together, I won’t let myself forget that when this weekend is over, we will be, too.
We’re only pretending to be lovers to land a deal.
Success will mean a promotion—one I want more than anything.
At least, that’s what I thought.
Falling in love was a danger neither Tyson or I saw coming.
And it will cost one of us everything.
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
You can’t PRY me out of Rivers Wilde. I’ve moved in and I’m STAYING. –Amelia Wilde, USA Today bestselling author
Once again, a 1001 Dark Nights novella has done its job admirably–it’s introduced me to a new author and series, and made me want to read more! The Daredevil worked just fine as a standalone, but since it’s 3.5 in its series–and we are briefly introduced to at least two of the other couples in the series (Tyson’s older siblings and their partners)–their stories have become all the more tempting. Mission accomplished!
Reading Tyson and Dina’s story, I don’t have any problem at all imagining that fans of the series have been awaiting this book. It’s clear to anyone that has eyes that there is something going on between the two of them (well, okay, it’s somehow not exactly clear to his mother/their boss? But that works in their favor here, at least) and watching them finally get to it was extremely satisfying, whether you’ve been waiting a few books or a few chapters. The setting of Paris added an extra layer, as did the corporate drama the two of them had to work through to finish a business deal for their company (am I the only one who saw that long night of work the two of them put in like a movie montage, dramatic music and all?)
Even being new to the series it was clear to me what choices Tyson and Dina should make to get to their HEA, and Ms Allen did a nice job of helping them to realize it without dragging things on too long or creating unneeded angst along the way. The Daredevil was an entertaining–and hot!–way to spend an evening of reading.
Rating: 4 stars / B+
