SYNOPSIS:When it comes to family, Ian Dare gives his all but in relationships he offers the bare minimum. Until one glimpse of sensual Riley Taylor arouses his dominant and protective instincts. He will do anything to possess her ... and does. But any future with Riley must include him dealing his half-brother who is a constant reminder of the pain he'd rather forget.
Riley Taylor believes herself immune to domineering men - until charismatic Ian Dare turns a simple kiss into an all out assault on her senses and she discovers she likes his brand of control in the bedroom. As their affair heats up, they soon realize they complete each other in ways neither imagined. But Riley's past is closer than she cares to remember, and her struggles with Ian's dominance might just cost her everything. (love story, contemporary romance, alpha heroes, beach reads, sports heroes, bad boys, billionaire)
Ian Dare love his family. Well, with the exception of his half siblings but once you find out the reason why he has half siblings, it's hard not to blame the guy for the way he is. He likes control and does not do relationships until he meets Riley Taylor.
However, Riley has an obstacle, or a few actually. The first being Ian's half-brother Alex. Riley and Alex are very close. Alex only knows Ian to be a womanizer and warns Riley to stay away from him. Ian must make nice with his half sibling if he wants to win Riley over.
Like I said, Ian has to have control which is another obstacle for these two. Ian has his reasons as does Riley. Both have built up walls because of their past. Ian's dominance isn't a problem for Riley in the bedroom, it's just the other aspects of her life. Riley is a headstrong person which is just one of the many things that attracted Ian to her.
Will these two let their down walls and give love a chance? Can they work on their past together or will they go separate ways?
