I didn't know how Jeanne St. James was going to top A Daring Desire. Dare to Surrender managed to just that! I keep saying The Dare Series is getting better and better, but trust me, St. James is on a freaking roll.

I soooo want an Eli Stone of my very own! The French throughout this book was beyond HOT. And the way he and Grant just fit. They are off the charts for both steam and feels!

Olivia, or rather Liv, has spent her life trying not be a burden. But when she witnesses something

5 star review of Dare To Surrender (The Dare Menage Series # 5) by Jeanne St James

Audio Review:

Narrated by Sean Crisden, Ava Lucas and JF Harding this was a captivating story that kept my attention throughout. The French spoken throughout this book was smoking hot and added to my listening pleasure.

What happens when your husband of 10 years suggests the possibility of adding a woman to your relationship? That is the position that Grant Lane finds himself in. When Elliot

I loved this hot and dirty book from JSJ. You could really feel the love and connection between Grant and Eli, and the addition of Liv just made it all the hotter. The world could use more guys like these two; dominating and romantic, sensitive and protective and oh so naughty in the bedroom. It really is a fantasy you don't want to miss out on -- two sexy AF guys and the woman who wins both their hearts. Toss in some mild suspense and secret that could ruin them all and this book has it all. An ...more

This book put readers in The middle of The events - Liv is on The Run, afraid, but what had happened? Add to it sexy, handsome and masculine to The Edge men?
I Loved The feelings between Grant and Eli with The one blooming for Liv.
The read was about Love trusting ranking about feelings and scorching sexiness!
I Love characters created by this author - Full, humanly, living, caring, changing gradualy!

I liked the premise more than the execution. The Hs are in love, mature, in their long term marriage. H meets a woman and he knows that he wants no needs, her too. She is frightened and at risk, but also very attracted to the H. He takes her home and then they all have to work out the impact she will have on their marriage. It was a good idea that somehow got side tracked with pedantic and not at all romantic 'what goes where, and with whom! I did like and wanted more on the jealously, who loves ...more

Wow, a trifecta of hotness times two, the characters and relationship Jeanne St. James created and the fabulous narrators who brought those characters to life. I loved this book, the storylines are interesting and once I started I was in it to the end, not putting it down once. Olivia “Liv” has

Each time a release of this series comes out, I think, you can't top the last one. And each time I am stunned by how easy it is for me to fall for each and every character! This 5th book in the Dare Menage series had me invested from the minute Olivia met with her estranged brother Trey, needing protection after witnessing a murder. Elliott and Grant hide her at their home while working to solve the case. But once Grant and Eli were in the picture, it was pure magic With this story, it has a lit ...more

From the moment he saw Liv he was pulled to her and knew he had to help her but he has run things by the love of his life and husband Grant. Grant took one look at his Big Man and knew his life is about to change but Grant just wants to know if it's a good thing. Liv has no one that she trusts so she goes to the one ...more

Jeanne St. James is quickly becoming a favorite author of mine! She hasn't written a book that I haven't absolutely loved and I'm always looking for next new release to be available. She has a way of pulling you into a story and making you feel what the characters are feeling. Book five of the Dare Menage series does this as well. Olivia (Liv), Elliott (Eli), and Grant are so freaking hot!! The chemistry between the three of them is amazing.

As an established couple, Liv's appearance in Eli and

Ok, I’ll be the first to admit that ménage stories aren’t something I go to, don’t necessarily dislike them, just not my favorite. That being said, I read this one because, are you kidding, it’s Jeanne St. James...Down & Dirty series...need I say more?! The woman could make a to do list interesting! This book was fabulous!

Having read A Daring Desire, I looked forward to reading this book featuring Trey's long lost sister Olivia. I really enjoyed this book. Olivia has found herself in a horrible situation, desperate she seeks out her brother Trey for help. When Eli first encounters the apparently distraught woman, his reaction is inexplicably visceral. As Olivia shares how she landed in her predicament, there is no doubt she needs help. Eli brings Olivia into the home he shares with Grant his husband. Grant is at ...more

This is my favorite book of this series so far. I simply adored Eli and Grant. They complement each other so well, and are so good for each other. Olivia has not had an easy life, and has been on her own for a very long time, making it on her own however she had to. She is quite independent, and hates asking for help. She isn't very good at it, or about it either! But she no longer has a choice. She needs her brother's help, and she goes to Trey's law firm to ask.

Eli is drawn to Olivia in a way

I love this series by Jeanne St James. The books do follow on from one another, but can definitely be read as standalones. This series is extremely sexy, but that isn't what makes me keep picking up every book that is released. Jeanne has a way of creating a world where the relationships are not your "normal" type, but you as the reader are in no doubt of the love between everyone involved. This one was a little bit different in that Grant & Eli are a married gay couple, and after meeting Li ...more

Fantastic Book!

I love Jeanne’s books!
Dare to Surrender was fantastic!
This is Olivia, Eli and Grants story.
Olivia has seen something that has put her in danger so she goes to her brother for help. She hasn’t seen him since she ran away at 16.
Eli decides he will keep her at his house. Grant, his husband has misgivings but she has no place else.
Their attraction for each other is great but Grant and Eli don’t want anything to come between their relationship.

This is one of my favorite genres. I especially love ménage books that have a great story line and i have followed the Dare series for awhile. It was nice to see old characters. Its can be read as a stand-alone book but why do that? Reading it along with the past books gives you such a great background. St james writes great books. Grant and Eli have a solid foundation they have been married for years. When Trey’s sister Olivia runs into problems there is an immediate connection. One they feel h ...more

I Enjoyed this Series

I have now finished the 5th and last book in this series, of course, I read them in order. I really understand now how three people can love 💘 each other. I had 5 outstanding examples. They were all loving, romantic, sexy and exotic. In addition, all their stories were quite interesting. I'm sure they can all be read as stand alone novels, but by reading reading them in order helped me to get to know the characters better and helped me to see how their stories all tied in

I always enjoy a well-written ménage, and this one started out with a whirlwind of revelations. I loved the story, especially Trey reuniting with his long lost sister. The relationships between the main characters and Trey and his loves were intriguing and sexy, and you can feel the love between them. The intriguing aspect and Olivia's feisty character were engaging, and I found Eli and Grant one seriously hot couple! Adding Olivia into the mix made their trio even hotter!

One more book on the series that absolutely rocks my world. Liv is running away from a criminal with political power. She comes back into her brother’s life who happens to be Trey. Since she comes to his place of work, there are some characters that come in to rescue her who wouldn’t have thought they would. Eli and Grant are a married couple who take Liv to safety. What happens is so hot and unexpected. I just love Ms St James writing. I can feel that I’m right there with the characters.

I'm absolutely in love with this series!!! If you've read the rest of the Date Menage series, you know they're all connected, but all standalone novellas. The way the stories are crafted are interesting, and I lost myself in the story. Jeanne St. James never fails to deliver a great romance with tons of sexy time thrown in!

Please note that I did receive an ARC of this book, and the opinions expressed in this review are my own.

This book had me glued to my kindle from the very first page with the well written storyline and the fantastic plot that flowed smoothly from page to page! The characters were so well fleshed out that I was totally in awe of the dynamics between Olivia, Eli and Grant, not to mention the intense chemistry that flowed from each character and when these three are together you get pure magic! I could not put this book down until I finished the very last page, therefore, I read it in one sitting!

I absolutely loved this book, I couldn't put it down. Two sexy men, Elliot and Grant, have been together for years, when their commitment to each other is put to the test by one woman, Liv, when she comes into their lives with nowhere else to go. There is drama, two bossy men, a distressed damsel, SUPER HOT sex, and a little bit of insecurity. There are also a few appearances from other beloved characters from the Dare series. Yay!!

I love this sexy series! The books do follow on from one another, but can definitely be read as standalones. This book was a little bit different, Grant and Eli are a married gay couple. And after meeting Liv, Eli instantly felt a connection and wanted to explore that further. Grant at first was a bit hesitant, but was not pressured into agreeing with Eli. He too felt an attraction to Liv. Also has plenty of suspense. 💋

Wow! This book really gave it all to you. It had chemistry and connection between all of the characters - Grant, Eli, and Olivia. Each character was deeply developed and gave you their deepest feelings. This one has it all drama, action, steamy love scenes, and a HEA all in one wonderful story. Great job JSJ!!

Once I started this book I had to read it from start to finish. Just to see what happens to Olivia and Grant and Eli. When Olivia is at the wrong place at the wrong time. She has to turn to her brother. Little does she know he has his pi help her. I loved the way Jeanne brought the characters together. The story was equal parts true love and hot sex.
