Love is a risk worth taking in this sizzling romance about secrets and second chances…

Scarlett Devereaux’s life on the Gulf Coast went from riches to rags so scandalously fast that she barely had time to kiss her Jimmy Choos goodbye. Now, with a new alias (Lily Barns), a new budget (tighter than a pair of Spanx), and a new job on the vacation island of Angel Fire Falls,

4.5 stars

Dare Me Once is the first of a series by Shelly Alexander. The author is new to me but I enjoyed her at writing style and loved her take on this single dad romance. She was able to bring reality and romance to the tiny little town. I'm excited to see what else she has in store for the Remington men.

Trace and his brothers have returned home, one by one, to lick their wounds and start anew. They have slowly been take over the family resort from their dad but they all realize that they nee

I loved a flirty Trace, "he followed her into the bathroom, where she swiped on mascara. He placed a hand on her hip. “Yes, I’ve seen every inch of you, and I gotta say . . . you’ve got some prime real estate under that towel.” Sometimes Lily has to get a little physical, "he nipped at her bottom lip. “Those shorts are very persuasive.” She pinched him. “Ouch.” He flinched. She pinched him again. “Ouch.” He laughed. “I take it back.” I liked this book, I fell in love with Trace.

Great start to a new series. I really liked the story. Lily is hiding and what better place to escape her checkered past, through no fault of her own, than changing her name and moving to the Pacific Northwest. Moving to an island and using her skills in hotel management, bringing this family resort into this century should be an easy putt for her. Were in not for Trace the oldest of the Remington brothers and single dad to a young boy with Aspergers. Trace meets Lily in the airport although he ...more

I am fairly new to this author, and when given the opportunity to read this book, I took it.
While it’s the story about the oldest Remington son, Trace and Lily (Scarlett) the new hire, it’s really much more than that.
It’s a story of how the actions of our parents, affect us. In this case, Lily, a talented hospitality manager has to escapes the sins of her father, and even change her name, in order to get a job as far away from home. Trace and his brothers have left their lucrative professions a

Moving forward is never as easy as looking back. The key is to take the wisdom gained and use it to find what makes you happy. Dare Me Once, can be summed up in one sentence. Don't sweat the small stuff. In a world full of negativity, it's easy to forget to look on the bright side, but it's the memories we make and the people we hold dear that can brighten up the darkest day. Alexander uses a father's love and the innocence of a special child to remind us that the worst moment is just a stepping ...more

Her life fell apart quickly and in a harsh way leaving her no choice but to take her profession, change her name and leave her home for a small island resort in the hopes of rebuilding her life, at least until the sins of her father would die down and not effect her anymore. With that, Lily Barnes was born and Scarlett Devereaux was placed in a box and pushed to the back of her mind. The place was remote and with any luck, her past would not find her at Angel Fire Falls.

This is a wonderfully wr

Dare Me Once is the first book in Shelly’s new, Angel Fire Falls series. I loved her last two series’ so I just had to have this book. I love being introduced to new characters. It’s like finding new friends within the pages.

Lily needed a new start. Away from the drama her life had become. So, she found a job on the other side of the country where nobody would be looking for her. No, she wasn’t on the run from the law but she was tired of the people following her around in

Lily Barns had many life lessons, I took this journey with Lily, Trace Remington and young Ben Remington. There is one word that instantly pops into my head while trying to sum up this beautiful story, heart-warming. It was quite simply a soul-stirring read.

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is the first book in a new series, and I think it definitely promises some fun reads ahead. There is an element of world building, but in an organic and relaxed way.

Having worked in hospitality myself I am always interested in how a hotel/resort is used in the furtherance of a romance. Here Shelly Alexander does an excellent job of finding plenty of opportunities and fun events to weave into the story of Trace and

I quite enjoyed this book about Lily (real name Scarlett), whose life has taken a turn for the worst after her father is jailed for fraud and her fiance dumps and fires her. She lies on her application at The Remington, a resort on a secluded island, and gets the job as the new Hospitality Manager.

The Remington is owned by the Remington family and Trace is one of the brothers who have returned home to help their father with the resort. He is a pilot, but after his now 8 year old son was diagnos

What a truly enjoyable book. I loved the Remingtons and the little resort island they run. The writing was very descriptive and made me want to schedule my next vacation there. The characters are amazing especially Trace Remington. He's such a devoted father and I don't think there is anything sexier than that. Lily Barns has just been hired as the resorts hospitality manager. The Remington's may not know exactly who she is and hopefully they'll never find out. She just needs a quiet place to la ...more

Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book via Netgalley

Nice story. I give it 3,75 stars.
It was well written but I didn't have good connection with MCs. I didn't feel it at all.
I liked the heroine, she was strong and had her own mind, wasn't a doormat.
The H was meh, normal I think. He wasn't man ho, he had a kid with Asperger and he was trying to give him better life.

This was a cute story about finding love when you are at your lowest point. Scarlett Devereaux is starting over. New job, new place to live, new everything.

There she meets single dad, Trace Remington. His family owns the hotel she is working for. He is devoted to his son and isn't looking for romance. She has been burned by loved and family, she is looking to start over.

This was a sweet story about love, family and an adorable son who stole my heart! Oh and those ducks!!

I loved this book. The chemistry between the two main characters Lily and Trace was great. I don't usually like to read books with kids in them, (personal preference) but Traces son Ben is a fabulous part of this book. Shelly wrote this story with such depth and understanding that it was truly hard not too feel as though you are part of the book. I would recommend this book to everyone. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. I hated that the book had to end but I am looking forward to the ...more

Granted at the beginning I had my reservations about Trace, but in the end, he turned my heart into mush. Lily was ready to start a new life. I believe things happened for a reason.

I have been a fan of Shelly Alexander for a while now and it seems there’s nothing she can’t do. Every story is so different, but they all have one thing in common - they capture my attention and make me fall in love with the characters.

I adored Lily and her knack for problem solving. I love how independent and determined she is. I love that she isn’t afraid to jump on a bike to get things done. And I love that she has a soft spot for ducks.

And then there’s Trace. Insert dreamy sigh here. Trace

A single dad, a woman who is literally reinventing herself, and a flock of ducks make this a fun read and a great start to a new series.

Lily was such a great character. She’s determined to make it on her own, which sometimes gets her in to just a little bit of trouble – like that time she found herself the new mom to a flock of ducklings, but her intent is always good. She’s a problem solver who isn’t afraid to try new things and she really is good at her job. Trace was a bit gruff, but knowing
