Book Description (from Entangled)

Trapped and tempted, this battle of wills rages all night long…

Kady Dresco and Colton Brooks click on a level that defies logic. There are only two problems. One, he’s her older brother’s irritating best friend, and two, they’re bidding on the same military security services contract.

When the competition heats up, Colton is torn between wanting to strangle Kady (and her annoying brilliance) and kissing her into submission. Which is a bad idea for a million reasons, because Kady’s submission is exactly what he craves. Being trapped in a tiny motel room with the object of his darkest fantasies will require every ounce of his restraint.

Kady doesn’t want his restraint, but Colton knows better. She deserves love, marriage, and a white picket fence—three things Colton can’t give her. But her proximity and the memory of their steamy near-miss three years ago slowly destroys his resolve. And he’s not sure how much longer he can keep his hands off…or his heart closed.


Dare to Resist by Laura Kaye is the opening book of the Wedding Dare series.  Kady and Colton are friends and enemies, business rivals and secretly crushing hard on each other.  Colton’s been friends with Kady’s brother forever and he’s been through war.  He’s dominant in bed but he sees Kady as the “girl next door”and oh so pristine.  When Kady and Colton share a hotel room due to some pretty nasty weather, he’s in for the shock of his life.  It seems “good girl” Kady isn’t the good girl he thought she was.  Now it’s on to see how fast he can get her into bed and into him.

Kady and Colton’s familiarity with each other is key to this book.  With the shorter format, there isn’t as much time to really delve deeply into either Kady or Colton so the fact that they share a history really helps.  Both Kady and Colton are whizzes at their jobs and they both have complementary sexual kinks.  In bed and out of it, they match each other.  If only Colton had known before!

All the books in the Wedding Dare series can be read as standalones and you can read this one all by its lonesome. But why would you want to when you can see what hijinks ensue when Kady and Colton tie the knot?  Enjoy a short and hot friends to lovers story now in Dare to Resist and you won’t want to miss what happes with their friends and family.
