Dare #5

This is book number 5 in the Dare Series and another success. It can be read as a stand alone but is best read in order.
Dare To Touch is Olivia Dare and Dylan Rhodes story. Liv is executive director and Dylan is travel director of Miami Thunder's football team. From the time they meet they have instant chemistry but Liv keeps putting him off. She has abandonment issues, she never thinks she's important enough for men to stick around.
Dylan is tired of being put off and is determined to show his hand at her birthday party with a special gift and a kiss that is overwhelming.
They find they have a lot in common, have fun together, open communication and hot, steamy sex. But while Liv is trying to deal with her issues, Dylan is losing his patience. He wants her, a house with the picket fence, a dog and kids and he is bound and determined to make her see that she wants the same thing with him.

Dare to Touch

I love getting to see each of the Dare kids find love, but also fight through a past that's been tough for all of them in different ways. All of them the problem stems from their father and how his choices affected each ones lives differently. Olivia is so much stronger than she gives herself credit for. She's the one to make sure full and half siblings all get along. But having issues with her fathers affair and now that he treats her like she doesn't matter is hard on her, too. An ex from college also makes her feel inadequate from that experience.
Dylan has loved Olivia from afar since the day he met her. Will he be able to breakdown her walls and see who she is and what she really wants in life or will he lose her forever?

too much of the same

I have enjoyed the books in the series so far, but when reading / listening back to back they are like the same story recycled and repeated with name changes, and only slightly varied personal issues. Actually, the personal deficits aren't that varied either. They all have mommy/daddy issues they have to work through, because they haven't done so by their mid-late 20s and early 30s. All the men are alpha-demanding, while all the women scream the same thing in every sex scene "harder, faster".

I would love to see something a little more unique in each of the stories going forward, otherwise what's the point? I'm spending good money to read basically the same story with new names.

Aside from the similarities, the story was well written and enjoyable to listen to. The narrator does a great job, except that the men sound like "old men" to me for some reason. ;)

Overall a good read. My only suggestion would be in not reading the series books too close together to avoid the "too much of the same thing" vibe.

Also, WARNING if you haven't read the spin off series with the NY cousins first, this book will spoil some things.
