Series: Brothers of Ink and Steel #2.5
Author: Allie Juliette Mousseau
Genre: Sports/New Adult Romance
Release Date: August 4, 2015
Josh North won the title fight, but did he win the girl?
Sophie Garner answered yes in front of the entire world when Josh popped the question and the diamond ring dangled from his title belt, but is she really ready to take the plunge? She’s been a single mother for almost three years, and she’s set in her ways, not used to sharing her life with anyone but her daughter, Charlie. Plus, she doesn’t know that she can ever escape the shadow of a past that still haunts her.
Sophie and Charlie are everything Josh wants in the world – but the heartthrob bachelor is learning that commitment and fatherhood are both tougher than training for the title fight! And even though he’d give his life for either of his girls, he’s not so sure he’s got what it takes to be a husband and daddy.
Will Josh win the roughest fight of his life, or will he go down for the count?
I fell in love with these character in the first book of the series, and it was absolutely awesome to get another peek into their lives in this wedding novella.
It's understandable that Sophie still has issues from everything that happened with her ex, and the way Josh handles it in this story to help her before they get married is sweet, thoughtful and unique...not to mention so romantic.
The way all of their friends and family also help with his plan shows just how close everyone is, and how completely they've accepted Sophie into their group. Getting to see everyone here in this story also stokes the need to hear all of their stories (hopefully in LOTS of books to come!).
An emotional look at how Josh and Sophie overcome her fears and, along with Charlie, become a beautiful family makes Dare You Forever the perfect way to bring them together permanently...while also piquing interest in the rest of the characters of the Brothers of Ink and Steel series.
4.5 stars for Dare You Forever, and fans of the series will not want to miss out on this fantastic novella. Recommended for 18+ due to adult language and sexual situations meant for a mature audience.
