Being a bachelor has its perks. It also has its downside. Just ask Derek Bettencourt.

Standing on stage and being auctioned off in the name of charity is awkward AF… until his business partner’s younger sister wins him for the weekend. He’s all hers to do with as she pleases and he can’t say he’s unhappy with the prospect. Especially since she saved him from an ex-fiancée determined to get her claws into him again.

Jessica Cavanaugh never intended to bid on the man she’s had a lifetime crush on. But her spur-of-the-moment decision gives her a chance to exact a bit of playful payback, for old time’s sake. And Derek is all too happy to indulge Jessica's whims.

What starts as a fun, flirty, game, with Derek acting as her personal handyman, quickly turns into a steamy and forbidden weekend. Lines are crossed that they never intended and emotions unravel their playful facades. Afterward, he can’t get the gorgeous, full-figured woman out of his head and he’s determined to make her his.

But how can they concentrate on a future when someone is threatened by their relationship and will do anything to come between them?

* A Dare Crossover novel featuring Derek Bettencourt from Carly Phillips’ novel, Just One Taste.


A sexy, scandalous dive into a forbidden romance! Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde can always be counted on to deliver an attention grabbing, confident hero to steal their heroine’s heart and I just loved seeing them back together again to work their magic in this Dare Crossover! The chemistry is intense, the characters are endearing and heartfelt and their happily ever after is our sweet reward!

Derek is accomplished and sincere and has such a good heart. I loved getting to see him let himself be loved for who he is instead of who someone wants him to be.

Jessica is adorable and gorgeously outspoken. I enjoyed seeing her shine and get all that she deserved out of life.

I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for more to come in this spinoff series!
