[Pat's Review]: "Hot Dare"

Hot Dare by Avery Flynn
Publisher: Kindle Worlds (January 19, 2015)
Series: Dare to Love, 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Hell is a Miami Thunder fan cruise to the Bahamas—at least, that’s how Colt “45” Butler sees it. But with his job as the team’s starting linebacker in question, he’s willing to do whatever it takes to prove he’s a team player. Plus, the prospect of having his one-night Vegas fling, Angie Diaz, as his VIP liaison for the cruise just might make the whole ordeal tolerable. All he needs it to get her back in his bed for some Vegas-rules fun on the high seas. 

Cheap wine and expensive ice cream, that’s how anyone fool enough to get involved with a Thunder football player always drowns their sorrows after getting dumped. Angie Diaz isn’t about to become one of the many. Mixing business and pleasure with Colt is one dare her heart can’t afford to take.

Pat's Review:

Colt "45" Butler is a linebacker for the Miami Thunder. He has been sidelined with a serious injury, but now has been given the OK to get back to work......but first he has to live through a terrifying celebrity cruise up close and personal with too many fans. Colt is not much of a partier, unless it's with his teammates.  In order to regain his starting job, he has to put on a happy face.  Arriving at the ship, pretty hung over, he decides maybe this cruise will be alright! His VIP liaison for the event is Angie Diaz, who works in the front office for the Thunder. They had a very hot one night stand a year ago in Vegas that he would like to repeat.

Angie Diaz is a Cuban American, beautiful and very wary of Colt. Their one night together was hard to forget, but she's counting on getting a promotion to Special Events coordinator, so this cruise has to be perfect, in spite of Colt. Angie saves him from a few very embarrassing situations and Colt starts to trust her judgement with her plans. Angie starts to have high hopes for that promotion.  She also is warming up to the idea of a relationship with Colt. Everything is perfect......but one unexpected moment can change it all.

I enjoyed this fun story, lots of laughs and steamy action. The characters are very likable, the setting is romantic and you can't wait for the happy hope! Another winner in the Dare to Love category.
