~Nichole~  Sizzling Pages Romance Reviews
This was a really smooth and sexy and definitely satisfying little read. I am not familiar with this "dare to love " world that this book is connected to. I'll definitely look into more in this series. This story hit all my buttons all the way. Our heroine Vanessa is business minded and extremely focused on that. She's pretty much pushed romance and all that it entails on a back shelf. Her friend Ella (Plz write her with Carlos) is pushing her to live a little. Pick up a hot guy and have fun. We ...more

An Inconvenient Dare by Bethany Lopez was a quick and sexy read with a bit of angst and all kinds of steaminess! I loved Vanessa. She was strong and determined and tied to her job that she lost all sight of herself. But all that changes when she is dared to find a man and let go. And let go she does.

The minute Vanessa and Enrique set eyes on each other, things are hot and steamy! They have one sexy and unforgettable night. Enrique was sexy and all kinds of charming, but what is he hiding? Can V

Damn that was HOT!!! I need to go fan myself.

Who would have known what an Inconvenient Dare could lead to? One thing I will take away from this book is to take a dare in life, you never know the outcome.

Bethany has yet to disappoint me with her books. An Inconvenient Dare is a quick, steamy and has it drama. I hope Ella gets a story.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This little novella packed a lot of punch into not a lot of pages.

Vanessa works in PR and is married to her job. She has not been on a date for a long time, so while out one night with a friend, she’s dared to walk up to a man and proposition him. She picks Enrique, and he is instantly smitten with her confidence and charisma.

They go home together and it’s electric. A few days later, Vanessa is introduced to her new intern, and it’s

Going in I knew this was a quick read so I really wasn't expecting to get a lot from it character wise. I was wrong. We really get to know what kind of people Enrique and Vanessa are. We get a little mystery and some HAWT action. Really enjoyed it!

I have to say, I picked up my ARC of An Inconvenient Dare with the intent of reading a chapter or two before going to bed. Well, a couple of hours later I'd finished the book and knew I'd be sleep deprived in the morning. The story between Vanessa and Enrique was fast paced and well written. I felt their chemistry come off the page. Bethany Lopez is an author I will be reading again and I recommend you read too. This book gets 4.5 stars from me.

Very naughty, very sexy and very hot.

Lust in first sight, Vanessa took a dare from her friend that led her to her sexy encounter with the hot private investigator Enrique. From their very first night together, sparks flew and sweats flowed. Too hot to handle, this is what An Inconvenient Dare is.

Truth or Dare???

Quick read of dares, dates, truth and deception.  Based mostly in Miami, with surprising and steamy scenes.  We've all played truth or dare growing up, but Vanessa and Ella are still playing.  That is until Ella introduces Enrique and Vanessa, and the game becomes a lot more real. And now a bit about the story...

It's been years since Vanessa has dated.  She has focused lately on her career.  But now she is well established at her new firm,  so she takes the plunge.  Ella dares he

*I received an ARC for an honest review*

Vanessa is a smart and strong career driven woman. She's spent so many years focused on her career in PR that she's forgotten to focus on herself on a more personal level. A work function, a dare, and a sexy stranger lead to the more ways than one in this steamy read.

An Inconvenient Dare was a super quick and fun read. Vanessa and Enrique sizzle between the pages of 'Inconvenient'. Set in Carly Phillips' Dare to Love world, Bethany brings

Couldn’t get enough!

Wow! This is one of the best books I’ve ever read. It was so tasteful and sweet. I loved how it had the right amount of story and suspense as when Vanessa would find out about Enrique mixed in with the romance and relationship. The characters were so well written. I was sucked in with the first paragraph. I hope Enrique’s brother, Carlos, gets a book and winds up with Ella.

An Inconvenient Dare, started with a Dare by a best friend, ends with The female lead feeling more than she bargained for. My favorite character is best friend Ella. This is a short novella, with a HEA.

Wow!! The chemistry between Enrique and Vanessa is off. the. charts!!! This novella had all the heat!!! I would have loved a longer story for these two characters to really show how connected they were outside the bedroom. All of these characters were fantastic and I would love to see more :)

Let me set the stage, I was really looking forward to reading An Inconvenient Dare.

And then…it slipped my mind. I needed this review up today and as of two days ago, I hadn’t read it. It’s summer…busy times, whatever. Anyway, I was worried that I wouldn't make my deadline. I did, of course. How? Because this book was such a fun fast read. I ripped right through it. I thought, I’ll just read a chapter and then finish it the next day. Nope. I read it all at once.

This perfectly sums up An Inconveni
How did I not know about the Dare to Love Kindle World?! I must rectify this expeditiously.

This installment is a pretty quick read, but it's definitely got the hot sexy scenes between Vanessa and Enrique. I liked how Enrique flipped the script during their first hookup, it's not something that happens on a regular basis (or at least in the books I've been reading).

Of course that won't be the last time they see each other, although the next meeting caught them both off-guard. But they manage to m

This novella by Bethany Lopez was so good! ...and deliciously naughty!

Vanessa's best friend, Ella, dares her to approach a sexy man at a party and ask him to go home with her. Not one to turn down a dare, she slams back the rest of her wine, musters up some courage and walks across the room to the hottie named Enrique. Flirting ensues & sparks fly because their chemistry is off-the-charts hot!

Although this is a short read, the author does a fabulous job at making you feel completely satisfie

This sexy novella, part of the Dare To Love series, starts out hot and stays that way as Vanessa connects with Enrique in a one night stand, only to discover that he's the new intern at her public relations company. They cede control back and forth in their sexy scenes but more importantly, start to connect on a deeper level, even as Enrique's secrets threaten to dispel their new found happiness. I liked both characters and the relationship Vanessa has with her best friend Ella as well as Enriqu ...more
Reviews from the Heart (Kimberly Anne)
I enjoyed this short read by Bethany Lopez. What started out as a dare by her friend turned into a sexy world-wind romance for Vanessa. The chemistry with Enrique and Vanessa was hot. I haven't read many books where the woman takes the lead in the bedroom so this was a breath of fresh air for me. What starts as An Inconvenient Dare will have readers swooning at the end of this one...

Quick Read

I always love a quick love story read Enrique and Vanessa meet at a party and pretty much steam up the sheets from the get go, once they work through the lie that really wasn't a lie they get their HEA.

I loved this novella! I devoured it in one go..I was so hooked on Vanessa and Enrique.
Vanessa has been so busy with work she has long forgotten what it is like to be the centre of a man's world..but she meets Enrique and sparks fly..
will she regret taking a chance on him? After all secrets are the worst..
Enrique is smoking and so so sweet..even when behaving like a total alpha.
Loved the story, the chemistry and most of all his single minded focus on her.

This erotic short is just that erotic and short. An insta connection on a dare turns into forever. I wish I had more to say but that was about it.

Fast paced story that was a quick read. Plus I finally got to read about a woman who knows what she wants in the bedroom and gets it.
