Review: Take Me if You Dare by Nina Crespo

Title: Take Me if You Dare

Book Whisperer's Rating: 

One decadent dare, one steamy night…

It’s been a year since Jasmine Stewart dumped her cheating ex, so when her best friend dares her to have a one-night stand during a business trip to Miami, Jasmine is all in. But just as she hits her cheesy-come-ons limit, a wickedly hot former soldier comes to her rescue.

Security specialist Ethan Worth’s instincts tell him the gorgeous woman at the bar is trouble. After a sexy dance and even sexier kiss, he knows she is. But when their scintillating night leads to more, the possibility of another long distance relationship sends Jasmine running for the door.

Until the unthinkable happens. Jasmine’s company assigns her to Bode-Wynn, the military security firm where Ethan works. Forced back together, the undeniable heat between them flares to life. But sex is all it can ever be, because taking it further goes against everything Jasmine wants…and everything Ethan fears.

Yes, yes, yes, was all I could think of while reading this book.  The characters were perfect and extremely real and relatable.  Ethan swoops in and saves Jasmine and from there this wonderful spark starts to burn and it burns throughout the entire book.  What starts off as a one night stand turns into a couple of weeks stand (could that actually be a thing?) once Jasmine finds herself working for the same company Ethan works for. 

But this isn’t just a steamy romance book, where everything is practically perfect; there are problems that our main characters face and these problems have to be solved for anything else can happens. Jasmine runs away from the “seriousness” that is happening because she has been badly burnt before and Ethan strays from the “seriousness” because he doesn’t want someone to worry about him while he is on dangerous missions.  This is what made them real to me. 

Also, all these second characters that Crespo introduced really piqued my interest and made me wonder if she will continue with their stories in the future…please say yes!

I want more!
