Dare Me Forever
by Paige EdwardGoodreads
It’s the beginning of her new life . . .
Twenty-three year old Amy Miller has been responsible for her little brother ever since their dad dropped dead and their mom took off six years ago. Now that her brother is eighteen, Amy's ready to fulfill her dream of opening her own stationary store.
But the past has a way of sneaking up on you . .
Then an old friend comes back to town--Amy's high school boyfriend, Hunter Morgan, to be exact. The same guy who dropped her a week before prom, leaving her a sobbing mess in a sequined Jovani dress. The same gorgeous man who now wants Amy back and won't take no for an answer.
And the future has a way of getting complicated . . .
But when Amy meets Ryan Anderson, an irresistible Brit and powerful businessman tied to Hunter's company, their instant attraction and chemistry awakens a passion in her she never knew existed. Ryan is dangerous and sexy, pulling her deeper into a new world of desire where anything goes, while Hunter is determined to use all his old tricks to posses her again—body and soul. Soon Amy is torn between her incredible first love and the most desirable man she has ever known, but is she just a pawn in a wicked game? And if she surrenders herself to passion, will she be left a loser in love all over again?

A pensive look crossed over his face, and then disappeared. There was definitely something else he wanted to say about himself, but then thought better of it. “So I mostly just think of new projects to work on.” His eyes found mine.
“Am I the new project?” I asked suggestively.
“Do you want to be?”
I bit my lower lip. I’d never been so sassy, but damn it felt good. “What would it entail?”
He closed the space between us, and put his finger to my mouth, gently tracing my lips.
“How about this?” he asked, taking my face in his powerful hands and kissing me. I melted into him, my lips tingling with excitement. He had that end of day stubble on his cheeks, and the hair gently tickled my face.
He pulled away, his eyes studying me. “Or this?” He lowered me onto the blanket, leaning down to meet my lips again. All I could do was whisper, “Uh huh,” as he ran his fingers again over my lips and down my neck to where my shirt fell open.
With his other hand, he began gently stroking my thigh, while looking into my face. His fingers felt electric against me, even with the thick denim between us. I wished I wasn’t wearing jeans so I could feel his skin on mine.
“God, your beautiful,” he murmured. I smiled up at him. This—the picnic on the beach, the kissing in complete public—was so not like me. And I loved it. What had I been doing all my life?
He laid down beside me and I moved to turn towards him. “No, stay there,” he ordered as he began to slowly graze my breasts with his hand. My nipples were instantly hard, and as he teased them, he kissed the side of my neck.
If I didn’t stop this soon, I was going to come right there on the beach. There weren’t that many people out at this time of night, but still, I wasn’t sure I wanted it to happen so publicly. But there was nothing I could do: there was no way I could get myself to stop Cliff’s manly hands from working their magic.
He squeezed my breast. It was almost painful, it felt so good. I turned my face towards him. His lips again met mine, but this time, he parted them with his tongue, and slowly began to kiss and suck me as he played with the rest of my body. I groaned against him. But he hadn’t yet touched me between my legs. I wanted him so badly it hurt. My body kept bucking for his hand to reach down and bring me to full satisfaction.

Love, loss, growing up way too fast, challenges in life, heartbreak, and love wrap this book up and makes it an overall good, quick read.
Coming from a broken home, Amy has had it rough! Her Father dies at a young age, unexpectedly. Her Mother abandons the family, and has left Amy the responsibility of taking care of herself and her high school aged brother. Amy has a lot of responsibility on her shoulders, and being that she is still young herself, at only twenty-three she manages to accomplish her goals in life. She opens up a little stationary store and is content with how far she has come. One thing she didn't see coming was the return of her ex-boyfriend, Hunter from high school. Hunter and Amy had a pretty good relationship, until he left her right before Prom and shattered her dreams of having a great Prom. Hunter wants to reconnect with Amy, after six years. He invites her to a BBQ , where she meets Hunter's irresistible boss, Ryan.
Ryan is a sexy British hunk who takes Amy's breath away, but she has mixed feelings for both guys. Ryan is a non-relationship type of guy. He loves sex, but with no-strings attached. He is a business and like her is much more responsible then Hunter. Ryan has been through a lot to get to where he is today, and because of that you can clearly see he makes a better choice for her then the douchbag ex Hunter. But, Amy has a history with Hunter, and she feels confused and conflicted, over her feelings for him.
Told in dual POV between Amy and Ryan we get more of an insight about the characters. I found the relationship between Ryan and Amy to be the best decision for her and she does have a stronger pull toward Ryan. Although, seemingly this was a good story with good characters, for me something was "off" and it just didn't take my breath away, but overall I found it to be a good, quick read with some heat and passion.
