5 Stars

From Ella Frank’s Prime Time series and Brooke Blaine’s South Haven series comes an explosive spin-off of both worlds.

Sebastian “Bash” Vogel, the magnetic, cross-dressing CEO of AnaVoge, has long been a lone island when it comes to his personal life. Self-assured and playful, he’s never left wanting for suitors
but Bash isnt looking for something permanent. He’s more than fulfilled with his company and his closest friends, and no one is going to shake up the status quo.

That is, until he’s thrown over the shoulder of one of Chicago’s finest and hauled out of a burning building.

Kieran Bailey, a sexy, hardworking lieutenant at Station 73, has been reaping the rewards of being crowned the city’s hottest fireman, which his crew never lets him forget. So many ladies, so little time. So when he rescues the latest damsel in distress, no one is more shocked than him to realize he’s played prince charming to another

But Bash isn’t like anyone Kieran has ever met, and soon his world is turned upside down as he becomes more intrigued by the enigmatic man that he can’t stay away from.

They’re from two different worlds. This could never work. But what if
they dared to try?

Dare You is book one of the Dare to Try trilogy, an M/M romance, which must be read in order. Prior reading is not required, but is always a fantastic idea for maximum enjoyment.

ARC received for an honest review
In the words of the fabulous David Rose

I have been impatiently waiting for Sebastian "Bash" Vogel's story foreveeeerrrr - not an exaggeration at all.
And having Bash cross over with one of Ella Franks boys - I may have peed a little with excitement!
I always knew that Bash's flamboyance and confidence would catch the eye of a wonderful man, but i didn't expect it to be the other Bailey brother Kieran.

And what a wonderful and extravagant and fantastic story Kieran and Bash are giving us - so far.
I am not typicallly a fan of the GFY thing, however this pair of authors could write about a statue falling for a pair of head phones and I would read it and love it,
Gah, I don't want to write too much and give anything away, as we have all waited for Bash for me to spoil anything for you.
I loved seeing more of the Bailey brotherss and their loves, and even though we were cliffied, it was to be expected knowing there are 3 books. And we only have a month to find out what happens next.

We've been waiting for decades to get his story!
Bookalzheimer-me almost forgot about him!
You don't have to have read Brooke's South Haven series and Ella's Prime Time series to enjoy this trilogy, but I would really suggest you to read them!
Especially the Bash moments in Brooke's series are so worth it!

Ok ... DARE YOU.
Book #1 in Bash and Kieran's love story.

Bash is a very happily flamboyantly gay guy. He's the CEO of his own tech company - he's very famous in the business world. That's why he's in Chicago at the moment to start a Chicago office.

Kieran is one of Chicago's hottest firefighters and a collector of one-night stands - with the ladies! Yup.

But then he rescues this pretty guy from a fire and he's suddenly questioning everything. He can't get Bash out of his head ...



We already knew that anything containing Bash would be amazing! and it was. I absolutely enjoyed reading this!
I'm usually not a fan of trilogies - I hate waiting - or rather, my bookalzheimer brain completely forgets everything! But - this time it's only a month between books. And yes - we did get a bit of a cliffy here. But we'll survive!

This story was so cute and funny and SEXY!
Poor Kieran is so confused but also not... And Bash is just amazing. But he's also very vulnerable - even if he's not showing it to the world.
They're so perfect for each other, but of course we have a long way to go until that happy end!

I loved reading this and I can't wait to see where these ladies will take us in the next two books!
