Trapped and tempted, this battle of wills rages all night long...

Kady Dresco and Colton Brooks click on a level that defies logic. There are only two problems. One, he's her older brother's irritating best friend, and two, they're bidding on the same military security services contract.

When the competition heats up, Colton is torn between wanting to strangle Kady (and her annoying brilliance) and kissing her into submission. Which is a bad idea for a million reasons, because Kady's submission is exactly what he craves. Being trapped in a tiny motel room with the object of his darkest fantasies will require every ounce of his restraint.

Kady doesn't want his restraint, but Colton knows better. She deserves love, marriage, and a white picket fence--three things Colton can't give her. But her proximity and the memory of their steamy near-miss three years ago slowly destroys his resolve. And he's not sure how much longer he can keep his hands off...or his heart closed.

DARE TO RESIST is a hot, sexy first story to the Wedding Dare series.

Kady Dresco and Colton Brooks are long-time friends, courtesy of Kady's brother Tyler. However, they've always been snarking and bantering with each other, and when Kady was all grown-up, the banter became Colton's way of keeping her at arms' length. No way would he subject her to his dark desires, the rough sex that he craves and that satisfies his soul. But what happens when they're cooped up together in a cottage (courtesy of a monsoon)? How could we hope to keep his hands off of her?

I love Kady! She's adorable--funny and tough and strong. The woman kicks ass, and I hope to be like her when I grow up. I like her chemistry with Colton, their banter and snark. She doesn't back down from Colton, yet she knew the time when surrender was the right thing to do. Colton, on the other hand, is positively yummy. His sense of honor prevents him from laying a hand on Kady, but that didn't stop him from taking care of her, even at great torture to himself.

Laura Kaye creates unforgettable characters that worm their way into your heart and make you wish the story were longer. Yet, even as I say that, this novella is exactly the perfect length for Kady and Colton's story. While short, there was plenty of time for our characters to grow and to deepen their relationship, allowing us to know them better and to see that indeed, these two are truly meant for each other.

As an introduction to the Wedding Dare series, DARE TO RESIST does a perfect job. Kady and Colton are two characters I don't want to let go just yet, and I'm glad we'll get to see them again during their wedding, where their friends have a chance to find their own happy ever after. Can't wait!
