3 to 3.5 Kade Loving Stars!

I LOVED. LOVED. Dare to Kiss, so I was ecstatic to read Dare to Dream. In this book it's a continuation of Lacey and Kade. Part of me was excited to continue with them and another part of me was hoping the next book was going to be one of the triplets.


Don't get me wrong I loved Lacey and Kade but I thought their story ended well in book one and the mystery could have been carried out with the stories of t

Another great read, and a fab conclusion to Kade and Lacey's story. Loved how we had the same elements as book one with the addition of a suspenseful sub plot and some heart-in-the-mouth scenes that had me on the edge of my seat. Highly Recommended.

Dare to Dream by SB Alexander is book two of the Maxwell Brothers Series told in dual POVs ending with a HEA.

Kade is protective, possessive, and fiercely loyal to his family and to Lacey. He will do whatever he can in his power to keep them all as safe as possible. He is a leader, a warrior.

Lacey is feisty yet vulnerable, sassy yet sweet. She's a hothead who's temper gets in the way of her rational thinking, but she's the perfect compliment to Kade who's levelheaded and calm. She's combating he

This book is the second book in The Maxwell Series and continues Lacey and Kade's story. To fully appreciate this book you need to read Dare to Kiss first which is the first book in the series and one that I personally really enjoyed.

I don't even know where to begin. This instalment had a much different feel than th

S.B. Alexander crept her way into my heart with Dare to Kiss and never let go. I have been patiently waiting for Dare to Dream. Okay. That is a lie...it was nowhere near patiently! I have been CRAVING it! I can say I was not disappointed in the slightest. I clung to the words like I needed them to breathe. S.B. knows how to make her her words cut you like a knife and make you feel the characters, love, anguish, anger, and all the emotions in between. Her words have been nothing short of fulfilli ...more

Dare to Dream is an AMAZING book! Ever since I read Dare to Kiss and fell in love with Lacey & Kade, I have been wanting more ever since!

This book is the second book in the Maxwell Series. It features Lacey, star pitcher for the baseball team and Kade, bad boy image all around.

In Dare to Dream, it has a mixture of everything; friendship, love, hate, secrets.

Throughout the book, Kade is so protective over Lacey. I like it! ;) Kade is all about family. So when Lacey is put in danger. He goe

I loved the first book and was anxiously awaiting this book. This one didn't hold my interest as much. I have been reading in off and on for a while. I love Lacey and Kade. The book seemed so long but there were some exciting parts. Kidnappings and bad guys with guns and romance make for a pretty decent read. I still Think the first book was better but this is a good follow up. The author really knows how to tell a story. My questions were answered.

I've tried to write a review for this book three times in the last week and every time I've attempted it, I had to bail, simply because I could't find a way to describe it, that would do it any justice, not the way I had it mapped out in my head.

I've been trying to convey my excitement, joy, hope, awe and heartache about this unforgettable story, but how do you do that in such a way that anyone will sit up and take notice and take a chance on a book they mightn'

Okay first off let me apologize I can't believe I originally posted another review in place of Dare to Dream. But, at least I found out I had. I must be sleep deprived.

Now on to Dare to Dream review. The real review! :)

I loved the story between Lacey and Kade! I feel you can read the synopsis so I don't need to repeat what is happening with them. I didn't realize there was a book 1 in the Maxwell Series when I received this ARC but, I don't think I missed anything major by not reading it.

Let me tell you I loved this book. Seriously I loved it so much I read it in one day.

Well I have to say S.B. Has done it once again and possibly even better I loved this book. I fell in love with Lacey and Kade in Dare To Kiss and this just amped it by a thousand. This story has everything some funny, romance and enough suspense to keep you turning pages to get to the end but at the same time not wanting it to end. All in all this was a great book and even though I'm not quite ready to let Lacey and Kade go I cannot wait to get my hands on Kelton'

**I was gifted with an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review**

Dare to DreamI ended being so interested in this book that I bought the first in order to read the ARC. It was so intriguing and I loved every bit of it. The dynamic of the characters and the plot twist were amazing. I of course was left wanting to read more and also wanting the stories of the brothers but overall a great read. Thank you for allowing me to read this! I would gladly love to read more.

An absolutely thrilling story, but then what else can you expect from Sue Alexsnder. Right from the start you can feel the evil and tension growing and she cranks up the pace chapter after chapter unto she comes up with TWO climatic scenarios and that's without the final baseball game. Exciting, pacey and very funny dialogue this is a cracking story and I can't recommend it enough, however read Dare to kiss first.

Dear god. Please tell me that isn't the end of their story. If so, I'm pissed. I don't want freaking realism. Especially after all that unbelievable drama. If they don't have more of an ending in the last two about the brothers I don't actually give a shit about (Kross is somewhat interesting.), I'll drop a star.

I like Kade, I do. And she's okay. But their dialogue is so odd. They fight over nothing. I am constantly confused as to what they're thinking. They tell us, but it doesn't make sense wi

Frayed nerves

OK! I need to catch my breath! What a crazy story this was. I have been on the edge of my seat from page one. Lacey is one stubborn and strong character. She had everything thrown at her in this book. Kade has to learn to trust her and not smother. There are new characters added in to throw their world into a tailspin. I was biting my nails with every page I turned. I'm happy with the outcome. It would be awful if she gave up her dream of collegiate baseball to marry and start a fam

This continuation of Lacey and Kade's story had it all...love, angst, sass, intrigue and humor. My emotions were all over the place and I could not put it down. These characters were so developed they felt like they could be real people. Overcoming so many twists and turns kept the pages flipping quickly. I recommend this book highly. Cannot wait for more from this author.

I really like the lead female character in SB Alexander’s “Dare to Dream,” the second book in The Maxwell brothers series.
Lacey Robinson is spunky — despite everything that happens to her. She’s a fighter... even when she doesn’t know it yet. When confronted by an admitted killer, instead of buckling and going along, a lamb to slaughter, she fights back. “I don’t take orders from a killer” she tells him.
Lacey won’t accept less than a partnership from her boyfriend, Kade Maxwell. Protect her?

S.B. Alexander’s books are filled with stories that tug at your heart, and are filled with romance, drama, action and suspense. As much as she loves to write, she also loves to read. Some of her favorite authors are Stephen King and Edgar Allen Poe, although in the past three years she's gravitated toward the paranormal and new adult genre, which is when she started her journey to write her first ...more
