London With A Dare by Angela Ford & Jennifer Conner- Review Tour!

LONDON WITH A DARE
Dare To Love Series (A Kindle Worlds Novella)
AUTHORS: Angela Ford & Jennifer Conner
Official genre of book :Contemporary Sports Romance


Chapple Palmer is the captain of one of the top soccer teams in the world, the London Lions. He should get more respect, but due to bad press he has a bad boy reputation in the British tabloids that he can’t seem to shake. In fact, he's even beginning to believe the things they say about him. Chapple knows his playing days are numbered and the last thing he needs is to be stuck babysitting an American billionaire, Ian Dare and his wife, who are there to promote Dare's American football team's exhibition game in London.
Elisha Sheppard is fairly new at being the Dare's scheduling assistant. She knows how important it is to stay professional and detail oriented at every moment. So why is Elisha letting herself be distracted by Chapple Palmer who she can guess is nothing but trouble, not to mention a heart-breaker? Why is she finding it so easy to say yes to his every invitation when her brain is screaming no?
After a disastrous sexual encounter with Elisha, Chapple realizes that he's proved the truth in all the tabloid rumors. Why would Elisha even talk to him? How can he make it up to her? Chapple feels a connection with Elisha he hasn’t felt with a woman in a long time. If she’ll give him another chance, he'll prove to her that he's the lover she's only dreamed of. But can he also trust her with his heart? 
\





In London with a Dare, their first sexual encounter is disastrous...Chapple wants to prove he can be the lover Elisha’s dreamed about. But this time, Elisha draws up a contract with the hot soccer player...
“There’s much you owe me. You must pay the consequence of your behavior,” she said in a tone that demanded he follow her lead. “I’m all yours.” He took one step back and met her eyes. He extended his arms to surrender. “Good.” She smiled. “Now that we have an understanding, you need to cure my ache. Slowly, this time, the way I like it,” she added after a quick intake of air. “All right.” His low hearty chuckle told her he was game. Elisha lifted her hands to his rock-hard chest. She slightly dug her claws inward. Her tongue peeked out to wet her lips and she raised her eyes to meet his. She felt his hard swallow beneath her hands. “Any foul play, Mr. Palmer, will result in penalty. Or worse; suspension and it wouldn’t be for one game. Do you agree to abide by my contract and regulations?” His lips curved into a sexy smile. “Where do I sign?” “Right here” She reached for his hand and led his finger to graze along her lips. He moved forward. His lips met hers. She remembered the taste of him. He began with a soft tease against her mouth and then opened them with the tip of his tongue. Once his tongue had entry she moved her hands into that sexy mess of hair and pulled him closer to deepen the kiss. Her action created a deep moan. She took that as a signed deal.... .... Chapple kissed a trail down her neck, across her shoulders, breast, and then lower. She felt every hot inch of his heated skin, as he slid his hands and tongue over her. Elisha could barely pull in a shaky breath when he cradled himself between her thighs. “I’m liking these contract negotiations.” He pressed her legs apart and slid a skilled finger over her wetness. “Especially the way I can sign my signature. I’ve signed many autographs and contracts, but never one I’ve enjoyed this much.” He trailed his wet finger in swooping loops over her thigh as if to sign his name.




Ian Dare and his wife are in London with their American football team for an exhibition game in London.  As captain of London's major soccer team, Chapple Palmer is charged with welcoming them and showing them around.  Chapple is used to getting what he wants and treating women like they are disposable.  Elisha is Ian Dare's assistant and despite her better judgement, she gives in to a sexual encounter with Chapple that ends up being less than fulfilling.  Chapple realizes just how badly he treats women and treated Elisha and wants to do better.  He feels a connection with her that he hasn't had with anyone in a long time and wants to prove he can be a better person and lover than he was when they first met.  

Elisha is an easy character to like.  She is smart, capable, and assertive.  Chapple was much harder for me to care about.  He didn't treat women well, didn't treat Elisha well, and was a little too arrogant for his own good. I appreciated that he was trying to make up for his poor behavior, and do things better with his second chance.  I was hoping for the best for Elisha and thought it was pretty strong of her to give Chapple a second chance after their first encounter ended badly.  For fans of the series, it is fun to hear a little about Ian and Riley.  This is a pretty quick read, and there isn't a lot of character development, but fans of the Dare series will likely enjoy this off-shoot.  3 stars.
