"Ashley's first lead feature as a reporter should have been simple: interview Darien Gallagher, a real life Dom, for a magazine article and launch her career as a leading journalist, but with Dare, nothing is ever simple ... Mysterious, wealthy, sexy as sin, and completely off limits, Ashley knows she shouldn't crave his touch, his kiss, but she does. Even though he's her best friend's stepfather ... What started for Dare as a lesson in domination suddenly has become so much more. He knows Ash is younger, more sheltered, friends with his former stepdaughter, but he can't deny the spark between them, even though he knows it's wrong. With every word, every lesson, Dare tests Ash's resolve and pushes her boundaries. But at the same time, Adam, Ashley's boss, has her craving things she shouldn't--and imagining a future filled with love, passion, and friendship. The assignment that was supposed to land her to the top is about to topple her to her knees, and secrets have a way of coming out when you least expect them. While Ash dreams of a future with both Dare and Adam, she knows they are hiding something. How can she hold onto a relationship that's not even real yet? And will their pasts haunt their future?"-- Provided by publisher.
