Love me if you dare by Carly Phillips

This is the 2nd in the Bachelor Blog series.
Warning:  there are a lot of sex scenes.  Very, very descriptive sex scenes.  If that's not your thing, don't read this book.
Besides the sex, the story is great.

NYPD Police Officer Rafe Mancuso saves his former partner Sara Rios from an assault and has become a city hero. However, he soon learns the down size of "celebrity" status when the Bachelor Blog names him an eligible hunk. 

Sara comes from a family of cops who are all divorced, except one. Her father was never in a long-term relationship after his wife left. Rafe proves to Sara over and over that he wants to be more than just friends with benefits. Sara trusted Rafe with her life but not with her heart.

Rafe tries to stay out of the limelight of the almost famous and retreats to his lakefront cabin. His vanishing turns the Bachelor Bog's attention on the damsel in distress he rescued, Sara. She needs to avoid the limelight as she is to testify in court against a killer who wants her dead. Sara retreats to Rafe's cabin where the attraction that ended their partnership ignites while someone exposes her hideaway.

There is a subplot with a lovable aunt and uncle along with the rest of Rafe's family in a cozy town.

I enjoyed the writing style but thought the characters needed more development.  We were introduced to everyone but I didn't get the full connection for all the characters that I think would have made the book more enjoyable.  I had a sense of skimming the surface of some great people.

  1. I'm not a big sex scene fan, but other than that, this looks like a good read!
