Publisher's Summary

After the sudden death of his wife two years ago, Darren Griffin has finally found peace. He has a good life, good job, two daughters he’d do anything for, and a beautiful home on the beach.

Greer Monroe is grieving the loss of her father. It’s the final rung on the broken ladder that’s become her life - crappy job, no friends, and a cheating ex-boyfriend. At the insistence of her aunt, Greer decides to spend some time at her family’s beach house.

When the glee-filled sound of children’s laughter dances through the breeze, Greer finds herself smiling again. The neighbor girls are carefree, depicting a life Greer has only dreamed about. Husband, children, happiness - a family. And their father, Darren, he’s everything a woman could ever want.

But it is, of course, only a dream.

She can’t stay at Carolina Beach, no matter how much she adores Darren and his daughters. She has responsibilities at home, a mother who needs her. Where there’s love, there’s heartbreak, and she can’t go through that again. And she sure as hell won’t do that to those little girls.

But Darren isn’t letting her go that easily. It’s been so long since he’s felt this way for anyone. Greer is his missing piece, a piece he never thought he’d find.

Saying goodbye is hard, but sometimes starting over is even harder.

Only when they dare to dream again, will they ever dare to love.

Great Story!

C.A. Harms is a new to me author, and I am greatly impressed. I was immediately pulled into the story of Greer and Darren. I loved how something wonderful evolved out of heartache and heartbreak. This book features 2 hurt people who find something special when they were not looking. The story is beautifully written and has humor, hope, heartbreak, happiness, love, and understanding. I thought the narrator Lillian Yves did a great performance with her expressions. She conveyed realistic attitudes and feelings. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.

Sweet Story!

I love CA Harms's writing and I really loved this sweet romance. It's so beautifully written. The main characters, Greer and Darren are great together, and the little ones, Vivian and Violet, are so cute and sweet! I love the Epilogue and the Bonus! The narration was really well done. Lilian Yves has a sweet and beautiful voice, easy to listen. This was a fun and sweet listen, sometimes heartbreaking, but really heartwarming.

LOVE!! 5 Stars is not enough

I absolutely loved this single dad story and seeing how the characters worked through all their struggles and grew together. I completely felt everything the characters felt and I wanted to be friends with them immediately. This book took hold of my heart strings and yanked and stretched them at every turn and I never wanted this to end. This book brought me a mixture of both happy and sad tears and a smirk on my face for days.

Lillian Yves is a new narrator for me and I will definitely be listening to more books.

Sweet and swoonable!

Dare to Dream is one of the swooniest and sweetest books ever! I mean, Darren with his two little girls is completely swoonable. Hearing him with those two little girls is the sweetest thing. Greer did not stand a chance where Darren was concerned! Darren has had such a hard past few years. Love was not on his agenda but you know what they say about the best laid plans and all! Greer’s story also pulled at your heart but it really wasn’t as devastating as Darren’s but this isn’t a race. No matter how you look at it, this story will tug at your heart and keep you listening on and on hoping for more… for everything.

I haven’t heard Lillian Yves in narration before. I really enjoyed her narration. I usually prefer to have two narrators when the book is a dual POV. However, I thoroughly enjoyed the way she read the story to her listeners. I really feel like she did an excellent job giving us two characters of an opposite sex.

when broken hearts collide

Greer is heart broken, grief stricken and unsure what to do next with her life...see, her beloved dad has suddenly died; her childhood friend cum boyfriend, has cheated on her; her job sucks and she has no friends. She is going through a period of depression when her family offers her the use of a beach home in Myrtle Beach, SC to regroup.
Darren is also heart broken...he lost his wife to a car accident and he's left to raise his two young daughters, while running his own construction company. He doubts that he will ever love again.
On her first day at the beach house, Greer is drawn to her neighbor's back yard by the giggles of children. Over the next few days, watching the interaction of the devoted dad with his sweet girls sort of soothes her soul. When they eventually meet, Greer is enraptured with the girls...and the dad isn't too bad either. Over the next weeks, Greer spends a lot of time with the young family and feelings begin to grow between her and Darren. But will her determined ex put an end to a fledgling relationship?
Darren is surprised by his growing feelings for Greer...he thought that his heart was lost when his wife died and is relieved but guilt ridden by these new feelings. He enjoys watching her interact with his daughters and his family but will she consider relocating?
It was bittersweet watching these two lost souls overcome their grief and find each other, but so worth it. Both extended families were a riot...looooved them. Fantastic, quick story with a great HEA. Need more of this series!!

Loss And Finding Love Once Again

Greer finds her ‘best friend’ in bed with her fiancée (who was a friend and known philanderer) but this isn’t her greatest heartbreak, it’s the death of her father. She becomes extremely depressed..so it’s suggested she go away and begin to recover.
Darrell is a widower with two young daughters ...lives next to the place where Greer is healing and they begin to help each other heal.
A sweet, tender and emotional story involving the ability to mourn and then heal..to go forward in life...but it isn’t easy and requires support by those you love and the strength to dos o.
An excellent and sensitive story on dealing with lost and healing.
The narrator did an incredible job and kept me involved and feeling for Greer and Darell. A recommended listen/read.
