Peek Inside Take Me If You Dare

When her best friend dares Jasmine Stewart to have a one-night stand during a business trip to Miami, Jasmine’s all in. She doesn’t expect to be swept off her feet by wickedly sexy security specialist Ethan Worth—a man who works for the very security firm she’s been assigned to win over—or that their encounter would leave her wanting more. But sex is all it can ever be, because taking it further goes against everything Jasmine wants...and everything Ethan fears.

One decadent dare, one steamy night…

It’s been a year since Jasmine Stewart dumped her cheating ex, so when her best friend dares her to have a one-night stand during a business trip to Miami, Jasmine is all in. But just as she hits her cheesy-come-ons limit, a wickedly hot former soldier comes to her rescue.

Security specialist Ethan Worth’s instincts tell him the gorgeous woman at the bar is trouble. After a sexy dance and even sexier kiss, he knows she is. But when their scintillating night leads to more, the possibility of another long distance relationship sends Jasmine running for the door.

Until the unthinkable happens. Jasmine’s company assigns her to Bode-Wynn, the military security firm where Ethan works. Forced back together, the undeniable heat between them flares to life. But sex is all it can ever be, because taking it further goes against everything Jasmine wants…and everything Ethan fears.
