More like 3.5 Stars Sweet book about super athlete star who falls in love with single mother of a ten year old. I liked the way he knew what he wanted and went after it. I loved when his mom said that he loved football, and with equal passion if not more he loved h. That was sweet. He gave up all his man-whorish ways for her even though they weren't even together. His mom was single mom too and he keeps on asking her for advice and how it was like to raise a son alone. Although I liked the book, [...]
4.5 stars. I loved this book! A wonderful romance between a big, hunky professional football quarterback and a young mother who got pregnant at 16 and has devoted her life to her son since. They meet at a training session for young boys interested in football where the quarterback is a volunteer. It is pretty much lust (or maybe love) at first sight for both of them but she's determined to be a mother first and does everything she can to resist both him and her own body.Both the main characters [...]
Sizzling hot doesn't begin to describe how sexy this novel is. I need time to cool off. Cole surprised me. So sexy, so romantic, and oh so HOT! How he moved their relationship from friendship to lovers was very smooth. The chemistry between Cole and Juliana is scorching hot. I enjoyed the story, but in all seriousness I could've done without the angst towards the end. Totally ridiculous. I also could've done without the getting married so quickly on the anniversary of when they first met. Twelve [...]

I started reading this book at 11PM and I couldn't put it down. I had to finish the book, which I did at 3:30th AM. Being sleep deprived was so worth it because this book was so HOT and ROMANTIC. I just love the easy style that Melanie Shawn uses to convey the emotions in the character and the book. Her sense of storyte [...]

This book is part of Carly Phillips' Dare series. I am a huge fan of this series and a huge fan of Melanie Shawn, so the marrying of these two was phenomenal for me! I loved that Melanie Shawn dialed up the heat on this one a bit, as it is in fitting with the overall series. So, just be warned, this may be a little more intense than some of the writers' previous stories. This story is about single mom, Julianna, who is used to making her way in the world, as described in the book (so aptly), as [...]

Arc provided by author in exchange for a review.What can I say? I'm officially in love with Melanie's writing style and her extremely delicious hero. The way Cole was with Julianna and Anthony just broke my heart. He was absolutely perfect and I am jealous of our heroine. Julianna has had quite a lot to deal with in her short time on this earth. She wasn't given the best end of the deal. She fell for her son at a young age and was left on her own to raise him and provide a life for him as well a [...]

From the main characters Cole and Julianna to Julianna son Anthony, to Cole’s mom Hillary, and Julianna next door neighbour Megan. Each of these characters helped make the [...]
Daring Attraction I was so excited to see that Daring Attraction was part of the Dare family series by Carly Phillips. I like this trend of many authors contributing a theme or style. It is a very interesting concept and in this case it worked very well. Although not a Dare family member himself, Cole is part of the team and during an activity organized as part of the outreach program, by the management team, Cole meets Julianna, a single mom of Anthony a very articulate young man. I was not too [...]

Paige's review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsI loved reading this story between Julianna and Cole but then I’m partial to reading how a bad boypurestdelightaward falls in love.Julianna is a single mother who has only relied on herself to raise her son. She has done a great job in this and sacrificed so much for her son. I loved the devotion she showed to her child. She is also willing to set aside her happiness but Cole, Anthony and her friends, won’t let her. I liked her character [...]

O.M.G. I'm sitting here with tears rolling down my face, having just finished this totally freakin' awesome book. I've read and loved most of Melanie and Shawna's books, but this TOPS. THEM. ALL. It's sweet, real, charming, clever, and HOLY SHIT sexy. Mercy! And Cole and Julianna - they're absolute perfection in every way. I chose this as my first Dare to Love Kindle Worlds book to read. The other authors are on my auto-buy list, so I'm familiar with their talent. But Melanie and Shawna have set [...]
This is my first read of Melanie Shawn's, and I must say she (they) have found a fan for life. Julianna is a kick butt heroine, who has been a single mom for 10 years. She isn't a "whoa as me" type character. She was dealt a crap hand and she did the best she could. Cole is the hottie football player quarterback, who is tired of his playboy life. The relationship between the two is hot and intense. Loved the secondary characters, including Julianna's son Anthony. I highly recommend this to anyon [...]
Melanie Shawn daring attraction.Loved it! I love all the Dare series! What a great add to carly phillips books. Julianna is a single mom raising a 10 year old boy. She was 16 when she had him. And always put her son's needs before her own. That is until Cole walks into her life. He is ready to settle down and quit his partying ways. Cole is a romantic. But can Julianna handle it or is she just going to just let her freak out.
I absolutely fell in love with Cole in this book. I felel in love with him the first moment he saw Juliana. It was amazing watching him try so hard to win the love of his life even when he may not have been aware himself. I think I fell a little more in love with him as he worked so hard to make sure she was comfortable while also trying to get to the place he wanted them to be. Definately a must read!!!
Cole and Julianna - wow! Her son Anthony was a cute addition to the story. I loved how the Playboy grew up and the single mom faced her fears. The 90's playlist dance party was the perfect touch. This was a nice addition to the Dare to Love world.a copy was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.
Sweet and fun readI must admit I was a bit nervous about Cole in the first chapter but I was loving him quickly after that. I loved seeing the real life issues and fears a single mom has when letting someone into her and her child's world. Cole handled it amazing. I loved the relationship he had with his mom. Beautiful story!
I am a huge Melanie Shawn fan and this book did not disappoint!!! Cole and Julianna had great chemistry and I loved how her son factored into their love story and the 90's dance parties were awesome!!!
Julianne and ColeWhat a great read. I could not put this down. I felt the chemistry between these two. I like how Melanie got right to the story and didn't drag it out. I loved her neighbour and friend. She added a little humor to the story
One of my favorites in the Dare To Love world! Nothing I love more than books about sexy football players. And if he happens to be the quarterback!? OHHH YEA! I loved seeing Cole go from being a self centered playboy to a man that became worthy of Julianna's love. Short, easy, and sexy read!
Daring AttractionI would give this a 10 if I could. I totally enjoyed this book. It was great. There's nothing I would change, it's a beautiful story I would recommend to anyone who loves a true romance.
