I love this whole Kindle World thing! London with a Dare by Angela Ford and Jennifer Conner is a great spin-off book with just the right amount of steam and still have a great love story to tell. It's all about a "footballer" soccer player from England and the American football team that is raising money for a charity. Chappel, the soccer team captain, is showing around the PR execs (Ian Dare and his wife, Riley) around while they are in England. Elisha is the Dare's personal assistant. Chappel ...more

I received a copy of this book in return for leaving an honest review.
I absolutely love when books are mainly set in places I've always wanted to go. And London has always been in my top 5. A part of me likes that the book mainly focused on the main characters. And since this was a shorter read it was nice to have them take center stage. They have great chemistry from the beginning. Chapel and Elisha just well click.

Chapple and Elisha meet when Ian Dare brings her along on a work trip to London. Chapple, the captain of the Lions soccer team, is instantly attracted to her. He uses his time showing her around London to get closer to her.

After their first sexual encounter, I'll admit that I disliked Chapple. He treated Elisha poorly, which he even admits to himself as soon as she leaves, and it seemed out of character since he had been so great up until that point. He quickly redeems himself though by apologiz

After a very unsatisfying hook up with Elisha, Chapple has to convince her that he is sorry and try to make it up to her. While the Dare’s are in Ireland for a visit, Chapple and Elisha get to know e

What a wonderful steamy erotic romance. I loved the chemistry and angst between Elisha Sheppard and Chapple Palmer. He is London Lions bad boy, with a reputation on and off the field, but sometimes in the tabloid rags his reported reputation is over-the-top. Elisha’s position with the Dares as a scheduling assistant is allowing her to help her sister with college. Life has been difficult for both of them since they were little and in foster care. The plot kept m

So I started this book, and didn't get too far in to it before deciding I couldn't stand the hero. Like, wanted to strangle him. But Chapple had just enough appeal to make me continue reading to see if he could redeem himself, and I am so glad I didn't give up on him (even when he pulled his BS, you could feel his remorse). Elisha is a fantastic heroine, who doesn't put up with anyone's crap. I love how she didn't give in immediately when Chapple was an @$$. The chemistry between the 2 was crazy ...more

London with a Dare by Angela Ford and Jennifer Conner is a perfect score for me. This book was very hot, sweet and sexy with gorgeous characters. Chappel and Elisha are both hot with major chemistry, they burn the pages up. The book had a great storyline with just the right amount of sex. I would highly recommend this book it was very hot, but tasteful.

I was given an ARC of this book, for my honest review.

This was a great read I couldn't put down! The story line was incredible and the characters have remarkable connection and interaction. There is plenty of sexual chemistry between Chapple and Elisha as their short term becomes their forever. A must read!

Gifted a copy for an honest review.

This book is a bit steamy but well written. The cast of characters work well together and love that it takes place in London.

A lot of chemistry and sparks going on between Chappel and Elisha makes for a very interesting story.

Ms. Ford did an excellent job with this book. We meet Chapple the captain of the soccer team and Elisha the Dare's personal assistant. Elisha has one focus and that is to do a great job for the Dare's. She is putting her sister through school and trying to give her a chance at life that she didn't have. She doesn't need any distractions but finds one in Chapple.

At first he seems nice enough and they have great chemistry. Elisha is

This book as a wonderful setting and the characters are great together. The book was a bit wordy her and there but it is easy to like Elisha and Chapple after getting to know them. There is an instant attraction then Chapple then becomes our frustrating problem. He then has to convince Elisha that he is sorry for his actions if he wants a chance with her, and she makes him work for it. I enjoyed this story!

Although I am normally a little prejudice against novellas, (Can you really tell a great story in such a normal book?) I am glad to say London With a Dare proved me wrong and provided a wonderful and complete story in a shorter than usual book. This novel is a part of Amazon's Dare to Love series. I have not read any of the other books in the series, but I will definitely consider them after reading and enjoying London With a Dare.

Wayne Rooney, John Terry and Frank Lampard.
Those are the names that popped up in my mind when I read the blurb. I mean a dashing British football (or American soccer) player would be absolutely swoon-worthy right? Sadly in this story it doesn't seem to be the case for Chapple Palmer. Or at least that was what I felt throughout reading London with a Dare.

Based off the cover and the description, I was really looking forward to reading this book. I mean, who doesn't love to think about an American young professional traveling abroad, meeting a sexy footballer and having an extra special fun trip both on and off the sheets (maybe this could still happen to me!

If assumptions make an ass out of you and me and the road to hell is paved with good intentions, this book would have the characters being an ass, headed to hell. Chapple is a British footballer with a “love ‘em and leave ‘em” mentality ever since his wife ruined his reputation. Elisha is in London taking care of the travel calendar of her millionaire boss and his wife as they promote American football in London. Elisha knows that Chapple is a man-whore and expects nothing less. But what cheesed ...more

Chapple Palmer is a captain of the London Lions soccer team. He has been having issues with bad press lately and he is notoriously known as a bad boy persona.
Elisha Sheppard is personal secretary to Dares while they were traveling in London. She was new to the job and she was worried about everything.
Since it's first time for Elisha, Chapple offers to give tour of London. Elisha was drawn to him from the moment they saw each other. However, their first

Chapple is a British footballer who from the start, it is apparent he is not happy with his life. I felt from his opinions of himself that he was living his life the way others saw him and not true to himself.

In walks Elisha, who is working for An American couple who are visiting the team on business. And the trouble starts.

I'll be honest, after that first scene between them in Chapple's apartment I was dead set on not liking him. I was tempted to quit reading the book because I couldn't see h
