    4 Mine, Princess StarsDare You To Run is the 2nd book in the Unbroken Heroes Series It can be read as a standalone just fine but it does have a continuing story line from book 1 which did make a few things get a little fuzzy But only about the bad guy Tyler Martin, not the main couple This is my first time reading anything by Dawn Ryder and I really enjoyed her writing I will say that I didn t care for the main couples names Vitus and Damascus All I could think was how weird it would be to 4 Mine, Princess StarsDare You To Run is the 2nd book in the Unbroken Heroes Series It can be read as a standalone just fine but it does have a continuing story line from book 1 which did make a few things get a little fuzzy But only about the bad guy Tyler Martin, not the main couple This is my first time reading anything by Dawn Ryder and I really enjoyed her writing I will say that I didn t care for the main couples names Vitus and Damascus All I could think was how weird it would be to be calling out those names in the heat of passion Their names were the only thing I didn t like about them Vitus was sexy, alpha and could be really sweet Damascus was brave, smart and there was something very charming about her I felt they had a ton of heat and passion Maybe a bit too much There was a ton of sex in this book and I am good with sex in books Love me some good sex in books but there was just so much in this book that I started skimming the sex scenes The ending was very sweet and I really liked how the plot is going to carry on to the next book I liked Saxon Vitus s brother I know his book is next and I can t wait to get my hands on it The little peek of his book at the end of this one just makes me want it

    4 I m coming for you Stars Vitus Hale, played a small but important part in the previous book to Dare You to Run in that he was Saxon Hale s Brother Although not massively involved in Dangerous to Know from the offset, it becomes apparent in the latter stages of the book that his previous association with Damascus Ryland, hasthan a little to do with the situation the his brother and the rest of his Special Ops Team find themselves currently in.I would say that this book can be read 4 I m coming for you Stars Vitus Hale, played a small but important part in the previous book to Dare You to Run in that he was Saxon Hale s Brother Although not massively involved in Dangerous to Know from the offset, it becomes apparent in the latter stages of the book that his previous association with Damascus Ryland, hasthan a little to do with the situation the his brother and the rest of his Special Ops Team find themselves currently in.I would say that this book can be read as a standalone, that said though having read the previous book, I think as a reader you miss out on a lot of the background if you do dip into Dare You to Run prior to reading Dangerous to Know because there is a bigger story line running alongside each of the characters getting their women men That was what he was to her, freedom, in its purest form. The book starts three years previously when Vitus, Saxon and their team are tasked with rescuing kidnapped Senators Daughter Damascus Ryland, the retrieval goes to planned, but in the interim, Vitus and Damascus fall in love, a proposal is made and accepted, but as soon as they are back on US soil, Damascus suddenly changes her mind and all communication lines are abruptly cut between them You wanted my attention Three years on Vitus is a man of the shadows now, but is pulled back into the light when summonsed to the White House to receive a medal in relation to his part in Damascus rescue, a medal presented to him by the lady herself, and feelings they both thought were long buried, rise to the surface again and quickly, which is not good news for certain people that are connected to them both, but for very different reasons I m a bastard for it you ve been through hell and all I can think about is how much it works in my favor because it s driving us back together Their reconnection, sets off a chain of events that neither of them could have initially foreseen, especially when it comes to lights that Damascus rejection of him three years previously hadto it, than her just changing her mind I want to get inside you, drive everything out of your mind except the feel of me Tyler Martin and Jeb Ryland s involvement behind the scenes takes an even darker turn, especially when the elusive Raven and his men are bought into play, and a new player is added into the mix with Presidential hopeful, Carl Davis taking an active part in trying to bring down the Hale Brothers as well.There is a huge amount going on in this book, which wasn t a surprise as the first book was set out pretty much the same way, you are given a large number of POVs to contend with as well as the fact that there isthan one story playing out as the book progresses, and although Vitus and Damascus get their resolution in Dare You to Run the rest of the story between Saxon, his team, Raven etc is still very much unresolved I can t think when you re this close Deep into Trouble is due for release in March 2017, and from the sneak peak in the back of this book it look like it may well be Saxon s time to have his story told I hope this is the case, because as with his brother, the author has managed to keep the details of his past pretty blurred so far, and I am interested in seeing how the story line progresses as a whole as well The author has a really interesting style of delivering a story, it works though because with so much going on, all the differing POVs add depth to each and every aspect of it, on occasion multiple POVs can cause confusion, but the author really has skill in this area, because I never once lost the thread of what was going on, and from whose head I was in.ARC generously provided via Netgalley, and it was a pleasure to provide the above honest review

    Netgalley for honest review Rating 3.75This story was a good read, not great, but good I see a lot of potential for this author first time reading one of her books.First chapter drops us right into the middle of a scene, which I found somewhat confusing Damascus the heroine has been kidnaped and is in a hole of some sort and tied up We have the hero, Vitus a navy seal who is in the process of rescuing Damascus We shift to them then running and help arriving to whisk them away.The decision Netgalley for honest review Rating 3.75This story was a good read, not great, but good I see a lot of potential for this author first time reading one of her books.First chapter drops us right into the middle of a scene, which I found somewhat confusing Damascus the heroine has been kidnaped and is in a hole of some sort and tied up We have the hero, Vitus a navy seal who is in the process of rescuing Damascus We shift to them then running and help arriving to whisk them away.The decision is made to try and catch the kidnapers so Damascus and Vitus are together for two weeks during this process During this time the two MC are reflecting on their attraction for each other and the next thing we know is they are acting on it Vitus and Damascus declare their love and decide to marry This is written in a way that was hard to understand time wise and the shift from one scene to the other was scattered and confusing The heroine is the daughter of a powerful politician who is a control freak, evil, and power hungry In fact Damascus calls him sire, she refuses to even label him her father Vitus works for a special group in the goverment that is top secret Damascus has lived under the thumb of her fathers control all her life, but after the kidnapping she decides to live her own life and will marry Vitus She knows that confronting her father will be a major task but is determined to make it happen Vitus at first thought Damascus was daddy s little rich girl but realized that he judged her wrongly and fell in love with the real Damascus Damascus s meeting with her Father does not go as planned Her Father threatend that Vitus would not survive his next mission if she married him Damascus knew she had no choice but to let Vitus know that she can t marry him, but she never revealed the true reason why to protect him And of course Vitus is heartbroken and they each go their separate ways.This all takes place in the first half of chapter one and from there it proceeds to lay the ground work for the plot When Vitus was a navy seal his team was double crossed by an individual who tried to kill them The team and it s leader decide to go after this person and uncover why they were targeted We learn still in the first chapter that Damascus has been busy working on a plan to finially get out from under her fathers thumb without his knowledge It s revealed at this time that Damascus is highly intelligent and is secretly working with someone to eventually join a top secret think tank in the government We have another evil politician who wants to marry Damascus and is in cahoots with her father We have Damascus and Vitus reunite at a political party three years later They each have a secret mission they are undertaking and their first meeting involves a lot of hurt and anger I have to say that there was a lot to take in the first few chapters of this book I thought too much was going on and the layout of the plot was done in a manner that was difficult to track with and many times I found it very confusing Also, some lines and situations between the MC were somewhat cheesy and fair warning to some this was very much was a insta love lust But I was surprised and I have to say about half way through the book things shifted and started to flow in a smoother manner and wascoherent Damascus and Vitus relationship becamebelievable and their character evolved and haddepth The mystery and suspense picked up to the point I didn t want to put down the book first half I was not as engaged I liked the ending and also the few surprises that transpired at the end I found this somewhat hard to rate The first half I would rate 2.5 3 But the second half I would have given a 4 or 4.5
