    Dare to Live is the fifth book in S.B. Alexander's amazing Maxwell brothers series, and a book I was highly anticipating because Kody so needed his HEA! Kody has featured as a side character in previous novels and he is the last of the triplets to tell his story. My heart was already broken for him, but even more so at the start of this novel at a very poignant scene in a graveyard. Mandy's death broke Kody, and six years later he is still struggling to get through each day. Until a certain feis Dare to Live is the fifth book in S.B. Alexander's amazing Maxwell brothers series, and a book I was highly anticipating because Kody so needed his HEA! Kody has featured as a side character in previous novels and he is the last of the triplets to tell his story. My heart was already broken for him, but even more so at the start of this novel at a very poignant scene in a graveyard. Mandy's death broke Kody, and six years later he is still struggling to get through each day. Until a certain feisty motorcycle-loving nurse crosses his path. Kody and Jessie are pretty much smitten with one another when they first meet, but the timing isn't exactly right. Jessie has just received some devastating news and thoughts of guys should be at the back of her mind, but she can't forget the intense, handsome man or his cute niece. This story has its fair share of angst and it will definitely tug your heartstrings. The irony of their pairing would be laughable, it it wasn't so sad, but it added a layer of authenticity to the story. I was rooting for this couple from the very start. Heart-wrenching, heartwarming, and ultimately uplifting, Dare to Live is an emotional read which packs a powerful punch. I loved it! The underlying message is one of letting go of the past, conquering your fears, and learning to live in the moment. Highly recommended as are all the previous novels in this series. I am voluntarily reviewing a complimentary advance copy of this book but all the opinions expressed are entirely my own. This review will appear on my blog in due course: http://myyanabookobsession.com

When we first meet her she’s found out she’s has the breast cancer gene and has to make the tough decision whether to remove her breasts or not. She lost her mom to cancer so she struggles hard with this. Throw in her sudden magical singing voice, in which she gets herself a contract to get them out of a hole and her motorcycle accident and it’s all too much. Honestly if I wasn’t enjoying this before, when he leaves her in the hospital and doesn’t even contact her for over a week after her accident and I’m like no bye. And lastly I’m not gonna lie I was so confused for half’s the book about the teacher he’d been having an affair with for a year as there was a character Mr. Robinson and in my head all I saw was Mrs.Robinson so I was doing a lot of double takes. Oh well it wasn’t for me and sadly it seemed my joy for these books really went down after book one.

    This was a good read. Kody lost his best friend in a motorcycle accident and he's had a hard time getting over her. He meets a woman named Jessie. They fall for each other quickly but she has her own problems to get through. Luckily with the help of family and friends they are able to get their happy ending. This was a good read.

    The anticipation of waiting on Kody's story is finally here! It was more than I hoped for plus more! I was praying he would finally get his HEA 💕I was in tears throughout the whole story. Beautifully written & fell in love with Jessie too. I would love for a spinoff series of the Maxwell series in the future. The anticipation of waiting on Kody's story is finally here!

    Every once in a while you come across an author who just captures your heart with her books, her words, her characters, and most of all herself. S. B. Alexander is one of those authors for me. She has captured my heart from the very first page of Dare to Kiss (the first book in the series), and my love for the Maxwell's and her continue to grow, just when I thought I couldn't love them any more than I already do, she goes and writes another phenomenal book that takes another piece of my heart.

I've been reading the Maxwell series since the beginning and patiently wait for her to release each book because I'm sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to read about the next brother, their new love and of course the entire Maxwell family. I've been rooting for Kody since the first book. My love will always be his brother Kade, but I've had a soft spot for Kody. He's been dealing with pretty heavy things that we caught glimpses of in other books but it all finally came to light in this one. Jessie has struggles of her own, but when those two meet, they finally meet their match, the love of their life or do they? Both Kody and Jessie have to fight through some issues on their own before being able to fight their issues as a couple together. This book will grab your heart and throw away the key. Such an amazing story, amazing characters. Every Maxwell story I read I fall in love deeper with their family, I feel like they are my friends. I want to jump inside the book and live there. I wish there was a way I could give this book more than 5 stars because it certainly deserves more. Another job well done, S. B. Alexander. Love, Love, Love Dare to Live.

    Kody and Jessie have both suffered losses in the past. Kody's loss of the woman he loved years before, kept him from getting emotionally involved with any other woman. He dreams of writing songs and signing with a famous producer. Writing his songs has been his emotional outlet till he suffers writers block. A chance meeting with a beautiful nurse with an amazing voice gives him new inspiration and has him feeling emotions he thought he would never feel again. Through her loss and struggles, Jess Kody and Jessie have both suffered losses in the past. Kody's loss of the woman he loved years before, kept him from getting emotionally involved with any other woman. He dreams of writing songs and signing with a famous producer. Writing his songs has been his emotional outlet till he suffers writers block. A chance meeting with a beautiful nurse with an amazing voice gives him new inspiration and has him feeling emotions he thought he would never feel again. Through her loss and struggles, Jessie seems to be living her living her life with a desire for happiness. She loves the freedom she feels while riding her motorcycle. She loves music and gets lost in the words. Discovering she carries the mutated breast cancer gene has her fearful of what her future holds and if there will ever be a man that could love her through her struggles, especially after meeting the gorgeous Kody Maxwell. As Kody and Jessie begin to connect emotionally they share their pasts and fears with each other. Can they survive their struggles and fears? Can they move beyond the past? Will they "Dare to Live"? I am a fan of the Maxwell Series and have been moved by every book. I feel S. B. Alexander has reached a new level in her writing in the telling of Kody and Jessie's story. "Dare to Live" is so vividly written it could be a real life trial and HEA. The emptiness and heartbreak of losing someone; the fear and challenges of a new relationship; and the strength and courage to move on is everyday life in motion. Although, Dare to Live can be read as a standalone novel, I personally suggest reading the Maxwell Series in order. Happy reading!!

    I voluntarily read a advanced review copy of this book! I knew going in that this was the last Maxwell brother to find his lifetime love. Kody loved and lost in the past and over the years he refused to get involved emotionally with another woman. Until Jessie, she is perfect for Kody. She has her own fears that she is dealing with and both are reluctant to get involved with each other. The heart wants what the heart wants. They couldn’t ignore it.

I have loved every single book that S B Alexander has published and I must say that this is one of her best! Dare to Live, those words were a huge part of this story. The lyrics in the song in the book were beautiful.. I could just hear the melody in my head and the words got stuck in my head. Both Kody and Jessie had to learn the true meaning behind the words Dare to Live. It was a struggle for the both of them and they got through it together. I’m so glad that Kody found the peace and forgiveness from his past so that he can look to the future. Jessie struggled with the knowledge that she could end up just like her Mom. No spoilers so I’ll stop there. S B Alexander, you have written a beautiful love story with a huge touch of Maxwell hotness. You didn’t disappoint! ❤️📖

These two characters have such beautifully broken souls. This is an emotional ride full of laughs and tears. Watching there relationship grow and develop is beautiful. Having all the Dare boys back is great. This is an amazing 5 star read!!!

    I loved this story! I love the whole Maxwell family! They love hard. Once you get their love you have it forever! I’ve been looking forward to Kody’s book since I first read Dare to Kiss. Something about his story spoke to me. He was such a young kid with so much heartache. He was different than his brothers which made him stand out to me!!! Kody has his faults and he did piss me off in this book. To the point where I wanted to jump into the book and shake the hell out of him. Though I do love w I loved this story!

She’s afraid to fall so watching her open her heart is heartwarming! This is another amazing story in the Maxwell Brothers series. I’m so sad that it’s the last one. But I’m hoping we get some spinoff stories. Especially Hunt, Roxanne, Lowell and Mack!!! Hopefully I’m not asking too much.

I cannot recommend this book enough; you will literally not be able to put it down.

    Omg this book is so good couldn’t put it down. Jessie goes through a situation that a lot of women now and days go through and sometimes the guys don’t stand by their side!! in other hand Kody did he had he’s little demons he had to deal with but at the end he was there through an accident and a tough time.

    Susan never disappoints, this book has all the feel. You laugh, you cry, Kody is every bit as amazing as his brothers. From lying low and having a broken heart to being the man he always was. Kody and Jessie are amazing souls together, the love and heartache they share is every bit what life is about.

    S.B. Alexander has done it again!!! I had the feels the whole way throughout reading this book! It will make you laugh, cry, be angry, and fill you with so much joy! I was given the opportunity to read an ARC copy of Dare To Live and I’m so grateful for it! I know that once I read this again it will feel as if I was reading it for the first time all over. All of her books make me feel like this!!! I am so more in love with Kody now that I know his full story!! You will just love it!!!

    This book along with all others in the Maxwell series are amazing! Kody and Jessie are so wrong for each other but so right at the same time. I absolutely love how these characters met and how S.B. Alexander meshes all of these stories together. You will fall in love with the Maxwell boys who put loyalty and family above everything else. I want to be invited to Sunday dinner at the Maxwell’s.

    Omg... I just love Kody he might be my favorite Maxwell brother. This is the fifth book in the series by they can all be read as standalones. My heart went out to Kody he is a really great guy but badly damaged after lots of loss the chemistry between him and Jessie was really strong but will it be enough to get him past his fears this was a great read and I really liked it

    If you haven’t read the Maxwell brothers series then you need to. Book 5, Kodys story packs a real punch touching on real life issues . It’s heart wrenching and heartwarming at the same time. This author never disappoints and is a must read. So beautifully written, I just couldn’t put this book down!
