Devlin's Dare by Sabrina York (release) ADULT title


Devlin's Dare (Tryst Island), (ADULT title),  is releasing for ONLY 99 cents for the first two weeks.  Grab it while it's on sale. Then it goes to its regular price of $2.99.  This is a fantastic series and I have enjoyed every one that I have read thus far and this was a delicious addition.

Blurb:  Devlin's Dare (Tryst Island)—Book 5 in the Tryst Island Series
A No-Strings Fling Becomes Something For Which He Will Risk All
Devlin Fox has always been a player. A horny bee flitting from flower to flower. He has no idea why the sexy minx he meets on the way to Tryst Island affects him the way she does. Arousal—for her—hits him like a fist to the gut and he can’t stop thinking about her.
But Tara Romano doesn’t “do” commitments. For good reason. When she proposes they be “friends with benefits,” Devlin can’t figure out why the idea annoys him so much. It should be the perfect scenario. A gorgeous, alluring woman who only wants him for his body… He wants, needs, more from Tara, so he hits upon a plan to turn their no-strings-fling into something lasting. A series of tantalizing dares—dares Tara cannot resist. 

My review:

4.5 out of 5 stars

Devlin's Dare (Tryst Island) by Sabrina York is part of the sensual ‘Tryst Island’ series that centers around a group of people who regularly visit the island.  Devlin Fox enjoys lambasting pretentious restaurants on his food blog but he isn’t quite sure he appreciates his brother’s pithy evaluation of Devlin’s love life with the statement, “When you go through women like toilet paper, at some point you’re gonna hit the cardboard”.  Tara Roman is determined to get revenge for Devlin’s criticism of her bakery, and she definitely does, even before he knows who she is.  Too bad that isn’t enough to cool off the sizzling attraction they feel for each other, however, one of them doesn’t want a relationship with any strings attached and for that to work both of them have to agree to be on the same page.  Working out the parameters of their agreement turns out to be much more entertaining than either of them ever anticipated.

This erotic romance novella is a fantastic addition to a fun series.  The scorching relationship that develops between the main characters is beautifully balanced with the humorous situations wherein Tara displays her feisty nature by either absconding with items or denying them to Devlin.  Devlin’s recruitment of his adorable nephew is inspired but I really enjoyed Tara’s response and her dexterity at turning the tables.  There is a poignant element supplied by the reminder of the toll that war has taken upon many of our soldiers as is seen in each main character’s sibling and I look forward to seeing them in future stories as well.  The author displays her usual dexterity at creating redeemable and fascinating characters while providing another very entertaining story and I look forward to getting to know even more of the people who visit this intriguing getaway spot.
