Take Me If You Dare
By Nina Crespo
A sexy category romance novella from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…
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.

My Review: 5 stars
This was a really good read. I enjoyed it from start to finish. Both Jasmine and Ethan are avoiding relationships, but for different reasons. They connect one night when Ethan comes to Jasmine's rescue, and what they share is fantastic. But neither expects a deeper connection, which is why Ethan is so disturbed when Jasmine leaves without a way to contact her. He doesn't know why, but it bothers him. Jasmine feels guilty leaving the way she did, but feels that she can't do a long distance relationship after her last one ended the way it did. Fate however, has other things in store for Ethan and Jasmine. Jasmine ends up having to stay in Florida for work, which leads her directly back in Ethan's orbit. I loved that they both tired to stay away from the other, and yet they both gave in. I loved that they ended up spending so much time together, having a great time, making plans. Until Jasmine has to leave quickly. What comes next is interesting, and gives both Ethan and Jasmine time to think about what could be and make some decisions. I really loved the way the book ended. Fantastic read, great characters and the story line focused on real issues that couples face every day. Lovely.
