Description

He’s a smooth talking jock in trouble. 
She’s the solution to his problems.
Love is the last thing they expected to find. 

Damon Prescott had it all. Star quarterback. Money. Fame. Now? He’s being accused of taking performance enhancing drugs and banned from the sport and team he loves.

Determined to prove he’s innocent, he hires tough as nails private investigator, Evie Wolfe. She’s able to bring a man to his knees with a glare, yet sensual in ways that take him off guard - and she’s everything Damon didn’t know he needed.

Evie’s used to men dismissing her, especially playboys like Damon Prescott so she’s not buying the sexual lines he’s trying to sell. She’s with him to do a job, nothing more. But you know what they say about the best laid plans? Sometimes you end up between the sheets with an arrogant football player anyway.

But when the case is over, can Damon convince Evie she’s the only woman for him or will she leave him tied up in love?

A stand-alone novel.

    This is second in the Dare Nation series and is a enemies to lovers story. The main characters are Damian Prescott and Evie Wolf. Damian is a professional football player trying to clear his name of a false performance enhancing test and Evie is the private investigator hired to prove he was set up. She is also the best friend of his brother’s girlfriend which helps to complicate matters. I liked that Evie had some sass but was also a vulnerable woman especially when it came to men, her ex in particular. Her ex made her second guess all her relationships and second guess Damian’s true feelings for her. I love that we get a chance to continue to hear about the previous characters and keep abreast of their lives. A great addition to the series. I received a copy from the author for an honest review.

    This is book 2 in the Dare Nation series and it features Damon and Evie. He needs her. Well, he needs her skills. Later, she ends up needing him and his skills. Any story where a Dare is involved is always sexy.  This is a sexy romance with a little mystery. The story line is fantastic with twists and turns that are sure to keep you guessing. As always, the characters are fabulous! I can’t wait for the next book in this wildly sexy series!

    He's in love with her, but she doesn't fit in to his glitzy lifestyle, or so he thinks. But that all changes when Damon tests positive for PEDs. Now he needs her to help clear his name and he's going to see how easily he wants to give up the glitz and how well she can transform herself to fit in to his world. She is his future sister-in-law's best friend and he has been warned off of her. He's known to only hook up, but now he has to play a role and Evie is his new girlfriend. She hates the way he looks down on her, but she needs this job to help build her business. So she's willing to dress up and play nice to get the job done. These two are like oil and water, but they will ignite and burn. The question is, will they burn each other, burn out or fan the flames?

    Another winner by Ms Phillips! Damon and Evie were an unusual couple as at first glance, they weren’t suited for each and were so different. But, then again, maybe that’s what made them meant for each other. This was an easy read, a perfect vacation read. But, wherever you read it, you’ll enjoy your time spent with Damon, Evie, and all of the Dares, new ones and old ones.

    The dare series/dare nation series is one of the best. I love Evie and Damon and there story is believable. Carly Phillips made the story come to life when she used true issues and seeing the two work together. They both are trying to hide their true feelings since what they really want is against how they have been living with their life. Evie is bada$$and she is one of my favorites I this series. I love the glimpses of the dare family and can’t wait for more. Carly Phillips does not disappoint and now I can’t wait for the next book in this series.
  • Love Damon & Evie!!!

    I absolutely loved Damon and Evie’s journey from fake relationship to their wonderful and satisfying HEA! What started out as a ruse between two seemingly incompatible people became something quite real between them and I loved watching that transformation as it happened very organically. I love both of these characters and so many of the other supporting ones too! Damon has always been a player on and off the field but now he was neither as an injury has temporarily taken him out. And now to top it all off testing positive for PEDs threatens the future of his career. He is innocent of course but is in need of help to prove it which is where Evie, who is a PI, comes in to help. Evie is so awesome! She has been through a lot but she is still so smart and strong. She fights for the truth with everything she has to get Damon back on the field. When her own past catches up with her, Damon goes into protective mode and let me say it ups his sexy factor to the highest level. I love this story, this series, and all of these characters and cannot wait for what lies ahead for the ever growing Date Nation!!!
