Blog Tour, Review & #Giveaway: ☆Take Me if You Dare☆ by @NinaCrespo21

A sexy category romance novella from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

One decadent dare, one steamy night…

It’s been a year since Jasmine Stewart dumped her cheating ex, so when her best friend dares her to have a one-night stand during a business trip to Miami, Jasmine is all in. But just as she hits her cheesy-come-ons limit, a wickedly hot former soldier comes to her rescue.

Security specialist Ethan Worth’s instincts tell him the gorgeous woman at the bar is trouble. After a sexy dance and even sexier kiss, he knows she is. But when their scintillating night leads to more, the possibility of another long distance relationship sends Jasmine running for the door.

Until the unthinkable happens. Jasmine’s company assigns her to Bode-Wynn, the military security firm where Ethan works. Forced back together, the undeniable heat between them flares to life. But sex is all it can ever be, because taking it further goes against everything Jasmine wants…and everything Ethan fears.

3.5 Stars

What she wanted was simple. No promises, no investments, just a man willing to make a dare a reality.

And boy what a reality that was.

One decadent dare, one steamy night…

This being my first book by this author, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But I gotta say I was pleasantly surprised. It’s tough for me to rate novellas, since I always have the same feeling once I finished. It’s that I didn’t ever find myself having enough time to get invested in the characters, feeling. This was not the case here. The story flowed effortlessly, the chemistry between the hero and heroine was scorching, and the sex scenes were even hotter.

Jasmine Stewart is trying to move on. It’s been over a year since she found out her ex was cheating and dumped him. So why is she sitting in a Miami bar enduring one cheesy line after another? Because of a simple dare. Her best friend Tara and her have had a whole friendship filled with them, so why should this be any different? Or right, because the dare is to have a one night stand. Too bad her choices aren’t exactly enticing…

“Did it hurt when you fell from heaven? Why don’t you let me buy you a drink, and you can tell me all about it?”

That is at least until the deliciously sexy Ethan Worth enters to save the day…or save her from some very bad come ons anyway.

After a sexy dance at a bar and an even sexier night together leads to something more, Jasmine is not ready to face that reality…so she runs…only to come smack face to face with Ethan during her next company assignment.

As much as Jasmine wants to fight their attraction, some things are just undeniable. And after all, they are stuck together in the same company hotel for the next couple of weeks. So why not make the best of it?

But all it can be is sex because neither of them want more…or do they?

This was a fun, sexy, and light read. I wished for an epilogue or a little more of a solidified ending, but it is a novella after all, so it is what it is. I really enjoyed it and look forward to future books from this author.
