Visit The Book Binge and check out my guest review of Jaci Burton's latest category release from Samhain publishing titled Dare To Love.
I really love Jaci's story telling voice. The dialogue is snappy and flows smoothly. The pace of her stories is just perfect. This is a contemporary romance of two people who come together on a dare. They're from opposite worlds--Lucy's a lawyer from a wealthy family with a controlling father and Jake's a self made owner of a construction company and had been a teen runaway years ago. Both Lucy and Jake have to come to terms with their fathers' control over them. Lucy's father wants to control her career and love life with no regard for what Lucy wants in her life. Jake doesn't see his father anymore, but his father's constant put downs and derogatory remarks still haunt him to this day. Dare to Love is a sweet romance that had a surprising amount of depth of character for such a short novel. A great read for the beach or lake or an afternoon in the hammock.
