Summary

He’s sexy. Alphalicious. And suddenly a dad.

Austin Prescott is a lot of things. Ex football player. Sports agent. And as of this morning? Father. Finding a baby on his doorstep should have been a joke, but the pink sticky note and baby carrier she came in is deadly serious.

What’s an out-of-his-depth bachelor to do? Call his tempting and beyond gorgeous executive assistant and beg her to move in.

Quinnlyn Stone agrees to help Austin until he can straighten out his messy life. It’s just another item on her very long To-Do list. It’s absolutely not because she’s attracted to her very single and extremely handsome boss.

Close quarters. A baby. Undeniable chemistry. What could possibly go wrong?

Loved It

I was pulled into this book right from the beginning and that is where I stayed until I had read the last word written. All the time I had my little mini movie playing along in my head.
The emotions that the characters go through can be felt, some of them actually pulled on my heart strings. I did find myself getting frustrated a time or two and I really wanted to smack a few of the characters, but they redeemed themselves by the end of the book. I went through most of the emotions along with the characters, I might of cried a little bit more than the characters. It doesn't matter how many times I read this book I cried at the same places each and every time.
There are surprises throughout the book, some are large, while others are small. Some you may see coming while others you won't, but each and every single one of them is equally as important with in the story as the next. They all play there own part in making the story the fantastic read that it is.
There isn't a single part of this book that I didn't enjoy, I wish I could give it more than five stars as I think it s worth so many more stars.
I highly recommend this book.

Hot chemistry

This is a great story about the instant attraction between Quinn and Austin even though they do their best to initially fight it.
Austin finds himself suddenly thrown into fatherhood and the only person he feels he can trust to help is Quinn.
Really loved his reaction when he finds a baby on his doorstep ~ typical male panic! 🤤🤤
The narrators did a fabulous job of bringing all the characters to life and I highly recommend this book

A new branch of Dare cousins extend the series

A baby brings a sports agent and his capable career minded assistant together in a pleasant romance. Very little drama, just a nice story with a blending of some of the original Dare family and new characters. Great narration as well.

Surprise Baby and the Office Assistant

Dare to Resist by Carly Phillips is among the many books of hers I purchased but never read. This book was well written and kept me enthralled until the end. It is about a sports agent and his office assistant. Their romance story was woven around many family members that made it more realistic. I Love Carly Phillips’ books. I am ready to read and listen to the next book in this series while I await her newest book coming out next week, Just One Taste.

Weird Sounding

I really wanted to enjoy this so much. I love both narrators and couldn't wait to listen. But the mixing on Erin's parts seemed really strange to me. It was so up an down with the volume, and just kind of unsettling to listen to. I gave it the ol' college try but by the third time one of Quinn's parts came up I had to give up. Going to give it a read instead because I think the premise is great.

You can't resist it

A Sexy and smart listen. Austin and Quinn have instant chemistry and Joe Arden and Erin Mallon deliver it perfectly as always.
Austin depends on Quinn as his personal assistant but when a baby is mysteriously delivered to his doorstep he really needs her. Their long time lust heats up as they work together to care for the infant, as they fall in love with each other they also fall in love with this child. Very enjoyable listen.

Sweet but Unoriginal

The plot of the story wasn’t very original, but it was still sweet enough to listen to and enjoy. Quinn and Austin had really good chemistry oh and the baby came along, it just made it so much more adorable. There’s nothing more sexier than watching a dad with his baby daughter.

Joe and Erin did a great job performing the roles of Austin and Quinn.

Cute Story

I loved being brought back to the Dare family. I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a fun, easy read. Austin and Quinn are so cute together. I was only disappointed the book was not longer.

Love a good office romance!

Sports agent, Austin Prescott, has been lusting after his Executive Assistant ever since they shared a steamy kiss a year ago. It’s becoming harder to resist Quinn but she’s determined to keep her distance. That all changes when Austin finds a baby and note on his doorstep claiming that the baby girl is his. Quinn comes to the rescue and temporarily moves in to help care for baby Jenny. Things escalate between Austin and Quinn but she has sworn not to have children after being forced to help raise her siblings. Can there be an HEA for this pair?
