They know each other and already have an attraction. While they don't have an instalove connection, their story felt slightly rushed, so it has the same feeling. I wanted more of a conclusion regarding Hudson's parents and his relationship to them too. It felt that this story was unfinished. Bri and Hudson have to decide who they want to be their family. Hudson is already part of her family because of his connection with her brother, but can Bri trust Hudson with her heart too?

    I am so disappointed that Bri’s book is a novella. It feels like such a let down that a female author would write 4 novels about the men in this series and then short change the females story that is responsible for saving their reputations.

    This was a short, sweet novella, to close out the Dare Nation series. Brianne Prescott works for the family sports agency, Dare Nation, and she loves her job. But, her famous athlete brothers, and her close proximity to other big time athletes, has made her search for love difficult. She can't ever trust that a man is only interested in her, and doesn't have any ulterior motives. She finally gave up on dating a while back, and she doesn't know how to change her predicament.

But, her famous athlete brothers, and her close proximity to other big time athletes, has made her search for love difficult. She can't ever trust that a man is only interested in her, and doesn't have any ulterior motives. She finally gave up on dating a while back, and she doesn't know how to change her predicament. But, then her twin brother's best friend comes into the picture, and she really wants him to be different. Dr. Hudson Northfield and his best friend Braden Prescott have returned to Miami from a stint with Doctors Without Borders. They are working for the Miami pro football team as staff doctors, and they are also giving their time at a local clinic that needs a lot of help. He and Braden have grand plans to renovate the space and make state-of-the-art medicine available to more people who need it. But, to do that, they need money. Hudson has a trust fund from his grandfather, but it's controlled by his father, and he's not sure the old man will give him the money. Especially when what he really wants is for Hudson to be running the family business in NY. Hudson and Brianne have become friendly but he knows they both want more. He asks her to come with him to his cousin's wedding in NYC, for them to have some time alone together, and for her to be a buffer with his parents. When Hudson and Brianne finally decide to go for it, they GO FOR IT! I loved their chemistry, and their banter as well. Brianne is so relieved to finally be with someone who only wants her for her, and Hudson has never really been interested in a relationship before, until he met Bri. They really had a strong connection. Brianne's family was a delight as always, and I loved catching up with the prior books' couples. Hudson's family was terrible and I truly felt bad for him. I was so glad he now had the Prescott/Dares to be his family. The dark moment here for me didn't work as well as I'd hoped. I hated that Brianne wasn't willing to listen and just walked. Even her twin was telling her she didn't have the whole story, and she wasn't willing to hear it. Ultimately it made some sense, due to her past bad experiences, but I didn't love it. Braden should also have been honest about everything he and his father discussed, but he was in a bit of a predicament too, so I understood why he didn't. Ultimately, I did enjoy this story quite a bit, and I believed at the end that they were going to be happy together, which is all I ever want. If you loved the earlier books in this series, you'll definitely enjoy this fun conclusion. I received an advanced copy of this book from the author. This review is my personal opinion, voluntarily given. Reviewed by Megan from Romanced by the Book

If you’ve read earlier books in the series, you’ll recognise both Brianne and Hudson from those stories. It definitely stands alone but I feel that you’ll definitely benefit from having read the previous stories in the series - especially since this is a novella which always have less detail and character development than a full-length novel. Brianne is the twin sister of Braden, the hero from the previous book, Dare To Stay. She’s a no-nonsense sports agent who’s been burned by love in the past and doesn’t put much faith in men or love. She came across as a kind, smart and successful woman who made a life for herself, assuming she’d never do so with a man. I liked the way she went after what she wanted but still seemed relatable and with her own insecurities and fears. Our hero, Hudson, is Braden (Bri’s twin)’s best friend although there’s little to no angst about that fact. Hudson is a fairly laidback, caring and kind guy who feels a spark with Bri, wants to explore it and is delightfully honest when he realises it’s more than he’d hoped for. I liked and understood him although I did groan when he used his male “logic” to decide to keep a secret from Bri. At least he was doing it for the right reasons but sheesh! The pair have have been eyeing each other for a while and when they come together there’s a nice flare of heat. But it’s actually once the pair become a little more serious when the heat ratchets up. They’re also a lot more intimate because it’s clear that our pair are catching deep feelings for each other. I adored the way that both Bri and Hudson could be themselves with the other - I love it when a pair fall in love as well as becoming best friends. Once again Carly Phillips delivers a fast paced, fun and sexy tale about the incomparable Dare family - or at least an offshoot of it! The book is short and you’ll just race through it, delighting in the love of both our couple and a big, ride-or-die family most of us wish we were a part of. It gave me the happies and it’s a book I would recommend. 5 stars. *I received this book in exchange for my honest review.*

This book concentrates on the one female sibling of the family, Brianne. She is somewhat fed up of her brothers cramping her style, and her attraction to Hudson, her twin's best friend and colleague, is finally given a chance to flourish. Hudson rescues Brianne from an overzealous beggar outside his outreach clinic. He patches her up and enjoys the chance to be close to her... so much that they share a kiss. And with that, the journey to becoming more begins. It is hugely enjoyable watching them navigate around her protective brothers, and rather sad how Hudson's father abuses his position of trustee to blackmail his son. As both leads are over thirty, they are well able to think on their actions and admit their mistakes. It makes for a nice change which adds richness to the story. I was very pleased that not only did Brianne finally get her happily ever after, but we also got to catch up with the family and see that all previous romances are still going well.

    DARE TO TEASE is instalment 4.5 in Carly Phillips’ contemporary, adult DARE NATION erotic, romance series focusing on the Dare/Prescott family- a spin off from the author’s DARE TO LOVE series. This is physician Dr. Hudson Northfield, and sports agent Brianne Prescott’s story line. DARE TO TEASE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. You do not have to have read the previous series to understand or DARE TO TEASE is instalment 4.5 in Carly Phillips’ contemporary, adult DARE NATION erotic, romance series focusing on the Dare/Prescott family- a spin off from the author’s DARE TO LOVE series.

Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. You do not have to have read the previous series to understand or follow the current timeline but like the original series, there is a back story involving the Dare family, and by extension, the Prescott family as well. Told from dual third person perspectives (Brianne and Hudson) DARE TO TEASE follows the building romance and relationship between physician Dr. Hudson Northfield, and sports agent Brianne Prescott. Hudson Northfield is one of the team physicians with the Miami Thunder, the team owned and operated by the large Dare/Prescott family. Having recently served alongside Braden Prescott in Doctors Without Borders, Hudson’s return to America comes with demands from his family, and the attraction to Braden’s twin sister Brianne Prescott. With the approach of his cousin’s wedding in New York, Hudson invites Brianne to spend the weekend, but more importantly as a buffer between Hudson and his immediate family. Needing something from his father, Hudson is stunned with the prevailing conditions, conditions he refuses to place upon the woman with whom he is falling in love. What ensues is the quick building romance and relationship between Hudson and Brianne, and the fall-out as Hudson’s secret is about to be revealed. The relationship between Brianne and Hudson is a best friend’s sister relationship; a friends to lovers romance in which Hudson and Brianne both know what they want but Brianne’s well meaning family, and Hudson’s cold and distant father begin to build barriers between our leading couple. The $ex scenes are passionate and intense, without the use of over the top sexually graphic language and text. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Brianne’s siblings: Austin and Quinn, Jaxon and Macy, Braden and Willow, Damon and Evie; Hudson’s parents Martin and Lucille Northfield; Miami Thunder owner Ian Dare. DARE TO TEASE is a story of family, friendships, relationships and love; a story of secrets and lies, revelations and acceptance. The premise is captivating; the romance is seduction; the characters are strong-willed, dynamic and charismatic. www.thereadingcafe.com

She’s used to working with top named athletes, but has found that the men she dates only choose her to get closer to her famous family. Bri’s twin brother, Braden returns home to Miami from Doctors without Borders with fellow doctor and best friend, Hudson Northfield. Hudson made the choice to settle in Florida to continue doing what he loves, instead of returning to his family company in New York City. Hudson has been included in all of the Prescott family events and has noticed Bri, but because she’s Braden’s sister, has kept his distance. All that changes when Bri is frightened outside of the clinic that Hudson and Braden run one night. Hudson swoops in to save the day and a spark ignites. It’s hard to ignore. Before too long, Bri flies to New York to accompany Hudson to a family wedding and for Hudson can ask his father to release his trust fund, so that he and Braden can upgrade their Miami clinic. Hudson’s family is nothing like Bri’s. His parents are cold and distant. Their lives center around their company and who’s now going to run it since Hudson’s brother passed away unexpectedly a year ago. On the last morning of their visit, Hudson goes to see his father alone, who makes a crazy demand in lieu of him releasing the funds. Hudson doesn’t mention the conversation to Bri on their way home, basically telling her his father denied him. They fall for each other hard and fast, but of course the truth has a way of coming out. When Bri hears his father’s demand, she feels like Hudson’s just like all the other guys she’s dated and doesn’t give him a chance to explain. Will she ever listen to any of Hudson’s messages? Will she just completely shut down and think that no one could ever love her for her? Will Hudson ever get through to her or will his best friend/her twin brother be the one who makes Bri see she at least needs to hear Hudson out? Will their Happily Ever After ever see the light? This is a novella not to be missed.

Hudson's family seemed like they were out of the middle ages, and his father tries to come up with a plan to get Hudson to give him something he and his wife want in order to access his trust fund. Bri, not knowing the whole story, eavesdrops and makes an assumption that is incorrect. For being a 32-year-old she really did have some immature moments. Macy, who I do not know as I have not read her book, was pretty invasive. Who calls their sister-in-law on a Sunday morning knowing they were attending a wedding the night before and that this was their first "date" for Hudson and Bri? It seemed off to me. Also, there were some flow issues. In one paragraph, Bri takes a fast shower and throws her hair up into a bun, the page she needs to hurry up and take a shower so she's ready when Hudson returns. There were a few more instances like this and it was kind of jarring. Overall a good read though.

It’s a taste of the Prescott family. Her brothers make up the other four books of the Dare Nation Series. Thinking this was going to be Brianne’s chance to shine, I felt this was more about Hudson. Hudson’s passion and what he wants to accomplish. There are things that he needs in order to get to the next level. Brianne has experience that will help but I was just expecting a little more of how her job fits into things. We get to see the heat that quickly develops which was a nice addition and didn’t seem out of place. Since it is a novella, you can expect to finish the story in just a matter of a couple of hours – which is good for those that may have a busy day scheduled but still want to get some reading in. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

After Brianne hurt herself when a homeless guy scared her, Hudson carried her into the clinic to fix her up. The two had known each other for awhile, and ended up sharing a dynamite kiss! Brianne had stayed away from dating as most men wanted her for her contacts. I was glad to see the two fly together to New York to attend Hudson’s favorite cousins’s wedding so they could get to know each other better. The down part of the weekend was Hudson’s parents. They exemplify the snooty, controlling rich people you hear about. I had a hard time with the way Hudson’s parents treated him. Especially what his father tried to do to him when Hudson wanted some of his trust fund money to fix up the clinic. This ends up causing some misunderstandings. I love the whole Dare Nation books and strongly encourage you to read the book. I won a copy of the book and voluntarily wrote a review.

They have an instant connection and she handles Hudson's stuck up parents like a champ. Everything is great until a misunderstanding takes place. Is this enough to break them apart? Is Brianne really enough for Hudson or is he like the other guys in the past that have always wanted something out of her? Hudson and Bri are fire!! They connect, they understand each other, and they fall fast and hard. But are their feelings enough for each other to overcome a misunderstanding? Loved, loved, loved this story and can't wait for the next one! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Wonderfully sexy, quick read with the Dare clan. Brianne has given up on finding a man. Everyone she dates wants something from her, usually a connection to one of her athletic brothers. Her brother’s best friend Hudson, is super sexy but never seems to give her the time of day until one day, he kisses her.

When he needs a plus one for a wedding, she jumps in for a fun weekend with him in New York. Hudson is working hard to break away from his father’s demands but needs his trust fund to be able to invest in the clinic. Needing to attend his cousin’s wedding is the perfect chance to also meet with his father. Getting Bri to come along is an added bonus. Of course, having his father demand that he gets married and have a child is something he won’t agree to just to get his trust. How can he make his dream a reality for the clinic? Will he find a future with Bri? Or will his father’s demands shatter their chance? I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.

    I loved that we jumped right into the story. A quick background on characters was all we needed, no wasted space for long backstory. I love that Bri felt that way about the homeless man. We could put ourselves in her spot, feeling empathy but yet, still some fear and concern on what would happen. The indecision in that situation was so relatable. I like that we see how strong Bri is, but yet she’s still vulnerable. You also get to see that in Hudson. It’s nice to have “real” characters. The stor I loved that we jumped right into the story.

The story was complete, which we don’t always get from novellas. I left feeling I got the whole story, without any holes. I have enjoyed the Dare series, but I think I still would have enjoyed this without it. We see their relationship grown and have steamy scenes. The chapters feel real and I really enjoyed the twist of the female taking something wrong instead of the blame all going to the male. Great, fun story.

    This was an awesome story and I really loved it. All the characters were awesome and its also a story I have looked forward to. Its a fun, easy and romantic story and a novella in size. If you are looking for a romance with all the feels then this is the story for you. In this Dare series we have met the heroine, Brianna in several books as her brothers found love. Now its finally her turn. Hudson is her brothers best friend and is a hottie doctor who with her brother run a clinic for the poor. This was an awesome story and I really loved it.

It was a really great story and not heavy on drama except relating to Hudson's family. It was great to see Brianna find her own man and it was awesome seeing her brothers and wives and watching them get involved and try and help out Hudson. It easily can stand alone but its definitely better told if you read this entire series. I received a free ARC copy of this book from the author prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Bri and Hudson's love story is quite sweet and sexy with a little bit of drama from Hudson's family. They have a chemistry since they met in the previous books so I am a little bit disappointed when I finished reading Dare to Stay and found out that it is the last book of the Prescott family but then Phillips announced that she will write Bri and Hudson's story in 1,001 Dark Nights Series instead which makes me happy because I really want to know how they will end up together.

The story jumps right into the point when they finally take actions for their attractions so if you didn't read the previous books before I think you might think it happens too fast so I recommend you to read at least Dare to Stay before reading this book. But even if you haven't read any books of Dare Nation before, Phillips still writes the story well enough you can enjoy reading it without their histories though.

Most upstanding brothers just want what’s best for their sisters, not to crush someone’s head or ruin their career. Braden and his brothers take Brianne’s needs to heart and are only trying to help. If you love the Dare family, just buckle up for another relationship steamer!!!! If you don’t know the Dare family, get that Kindle going….

This is a steamy story with some problems with the families, especially Hudson’s. It’s a quick moving novella with an HEA. I loved reading about the last sibling. I always look forward to books by Carly Phillips. The content and the story line are always intriguing with anticipation.

    Received an ARC for an honest review. I was hoping we would get Brianne and Hudson's story after sparks flew in the last book! When Hudson comes to Brianne's rescue, the chemistry they've been feeling comes to a boiling point and before you know it, Bri is travelling with Hudson to a family wedding. Like her brothers and Dare cousins before her, love comes hard and fast for Bri, but can her relationship survive a scheming father? This was a nice quick read, but I got so much out of it.

We get to know the characters over time, so when it's their turn in the spotlight, we get to dive right into the good stuff.

I guess her past has something to do with that. I definitely look forward to whatever this author comes out with next.

    I absolutely positively LOVE LOVE LOVE Dare Nation, and I find myself thinking it's criminal for this particular author to write a short(ish) book LOL! Bri is over men since the ones that she comes across are using her to get to her famous family, and it's really made her cynical. Luckily, her twin's best friend, Dr. Hudson Northfield sees her as more, and they do have some intense chemistry. However, he's got a secret that he can't reveal but we all know that secrets tend to come out, and while I absolutely positively LOVE LOVE LOVE Dare Nation, and I find myself thinking it's criminal for this particular author to write a short(ish) book LOL!

    I really enjoyed this novella. It was nice getting a Dare woman's book after reading all about her brother's and I loved that she ended up with Hudson. Since it is a novella the romance in this one did move rather quickly but there was a bit of a background flirtation from the other books so that helped with it not being insta-love. There was even enough time for drama when Bri misheard something that painted Hudson in a bad light. Overall the novella was well-rounded and I really enjoyed it. *I I really enjoyed this novella.

No intimate scenes other than the Hero and heroine. Small other woman drama, his mother mentions other woman that is interested and hints to heroine they have history. The Hero is not interested and says there is no history. Small separation. Neither are with others during this brief time. It is mentioned the Hero had committed issues but he feels noone he has dated in the past has stuck. Th It's okay.
