3 super steamy, light-hearted read stars

This is the first book I have read in this series, and although there were references and interactions with characters that were from previous installments, I feel this can be easily read as a standalone.

Trace is the brother of a famous professional athlete. They look enough alike that he is sometimes mistaken for his brother, which is how he ended up being a single father to a 5 month old baby boy when a woman attempted to trap his brother and ended up wi

HAVE MERCY that was HOT *fans self* with a huge side of heart!! Perfection!

Sometimes, right when I finish a book I feel so something about it so I’ll jump on Goodreads and just type a sentence or two about that and do a full review later when my brain is calmer. I’ve come back to this book twice since mid-July when I finished and every time, nothing seemed as appropriate than that one sentence. Because that’s what this story was: delicious sexy wrapped in heart! I mean do you need more? Lol

I gobbled this up in one day, it was HOT but more than that it has some really likable characters once I got past the reason they were initially introduced.

Trace Weston and Masey Garrett have not had it easy over the last several months and they are both in need of a night of good fun both in and out of the bedroom. But can they end things after just one night? With all the baggage they have that is all Masey is looking for but Trace thinks he may just want a little more...

"I love it when you're polite about wanting something dirty."

Who can resist a sexy single dad who talks dirty and can back it up? Not me, that's for sure! No dare required. Wait until you meet Trace and his adorable baby boy. Prepare to melt into a puddle, right after your ovaries explode...sigh. ♥

Of course, I went in knowing that the planned one-night stand would grow into more. But it was so much fun seeing it happen a kiss, a touch, a moment, a heart at a time. I especially enjoyed the de

More Than Dare You is the 6th book in the More Than Words series by Shayla Black. Each book is a stand-alone, but I got to admit that some of the things mentioned happened in the previous books and new to the series readers might feel a little out of place.

Masey has gotten out of a very serious and long relationship and wants to spice things up because her ex was worse than Sheldon Cooper when it came to human contact. Trace is the perfect man to do that because he has a very long history of no

This series has become an automatic one-click for me--which means my standards were high going into this read. Now I'll make it official: my expectations were blown right off their swooning, sighing hinges.
But the hot, sexy swoon factor is just the start of what's going on here. I love this book for so many more reasons than that. Important reasons. The core of that reasoning revolves around the story's two protagonists, Trace Weston and Masey Garrett, who agree they're both badly in need of a

More Than Dare You is the sixth book in Shayla Black’s More Than Words series, but it works perfectly fine as a standalone novel. I read it without having read any of the prior books, and I understood just fine. There were a few details I would have liked a wee bit more of, things that were clear references to the prior books, but it was not enough to lessen my enjoyment.

From the very first page, this one pulled me in. I quickly fell for the characters and had so much fun with their story. The c

***ARC Provided by the Author***

I loved the premise of this title, the woman without a lot of sexual experience, and most of it bad, hooking up with the player, the guy who is going to be able to show her how good sex can be.

And, it's even better that Masey is set up with Trace by a mutual friend, someone who knows both of them and knows what they can do for one another.

I also liked the idea that Trace is struggling with being seen as someone who is only good for one thing, and that there's not

I haven’t read many books by this author so I was a bit hesitant to jump into book 6 in the series but I still really enjoyed More Than Dare and not having read the previous books took nothing away from this steamy romance .

Trace's gigolo status has always been something he never shied away from. In fact his love for the ladies is well known. But when he is asked to have one night with Masey to literally break her out of her bedroom slump he finds himself not really enjoying his status. Will Masey be the one to break this bad boy out of his customary shell? Or will the baggage she is trying to overcome be too much to be handled?

More Than Dare You is the 6th book in the More Than Words series and probably my favorite book to date by this author. More Than Words became a fast favorite when book one released and I have loved each book as much as the first and this was no different. This was amazing! But I expect nothing less from Shayla Black.

This series is close to my heart. I love when authors write about families and their connection to each other. The family dynamics is delightful with this group of brothers and sisters and their significant others.

I"m in love with this series. Shayla Black writes stories that her readers can delve right into and not come up for air until we're done. Trace is swoon worthy and Masey, well I did want to smack her a couple of times but she grew on me so hard. What starts as a "one night stand" turns into something they don't expect and I loved every page of it! There's drama, OM stuff with her ex and it's just a darn good story!!!! Be sure to get it and find some time alone to read this. ...more

I really liked this one, I think because both Trace and Masey seemed at a cross-roads and ready for more, but neither expected to find it with the other. It also seemed that both of them had the same issue, just on opposite sides.

I liked how this one started at first, found it funny that Masey wanted a hot night of sex to help her get on with her life, while Trace could use a night out, the first in months after becoming a father. The whole premise started to make me uncomfortable as Trace's iss

This book started off on such a high note and I was super excited to see where it progressed, however after the first few chapters, it sort of plateaued for me. By no means was it a bad read. This was a good book, it just wasn't packed with as much drama or suspense.

More Than Dare you is the sixth instalment in the 'More Than Words' series, and as this was classified as a standalone, I didn't feel the have to read the others. Yes, characters from the other books appeared, so if you have read the

I will admit I am normally not one that loves single Dad romance, however, Shayla knocked this one out of the park. How could you not fall for Trace?

Trace has previously been a player and was used to getting what he wanted when he wanted it. He has really never been the relationship type, however, due to his circumstances that is changing for him. One night changes it all. A favor turns into a desire he has never known. Is this what he has been missing? Can this hot and single Dad offer his worl

This is my first book by this author and this book is also part of a larger series. That said it also easily stands alone. It stars Trace, who is a brand new single dad to a baby who is 5 months old.

I loved this book and was emotionally involved from the beginning. Masy was in a horrible relationship for 10 years, can Trace show her what she’s been missing? They have such scorching hot chemistry. Is he falling for her? I laughed at the belated” boyfriend does my make up challenge”. They were so great for each other. Didn’t expect to cry, but I did towards the ending. Felt their pain. But thankfully they get a very happy ever after. I voluntarily read an advanced readers copy and I highly re ...more
Trace as a single dad has been missing a key factor of his life, his sex life that is. When he is set up for what should just be a one night stand with Masey it should be perfect. Trace and Masey click on levels they never have with another person: emotional, sexual, and spiritual. Can a not so one night stand lead to love? Trace and Masey work hard to figure it out. Along with cameos of past couples in this series that give more depth to the characters and the series. Can't wait for more in thi ...more

More Than Dare You

This story starts off with a dare and a promise that Masey’s hook up with Trace will be about nothing but steamy, hot sex - you see she’s just been dumped by her boyfriend of 10 years and wants nothing more than to learn what great sex really is with a hot guy who actually knows what he’s doing! But when Masey meets Trace, nothing goes as planned. When circumstances force them to deal with each other longer then just 1 night, things quickly change between them! I loved reading

I dare you not to love it

The More To Love Series from Shayla Black would have to be one of my favourites, and MORE THAN DARE YOU has just made it even better. The story of Trace Weston and Masey Garrett had my heart melting every time I turned the page. Never before have I fallen so quickly for a story's main characters, yet Shayla had me doing it within lines of their first meeting.

Trace Weston was the quintessential definition of a man whore, until his life was changed five months earlier. Now

This is the sixth book in the series, and is a lovely addition to the ever growing family and friends living close to each other in Hawaii. I love that we get to catch up with old friends and see how their relationships have matured and families have grown. One such growth, which cased much confusion in Noah's book, is that his brother Trace now has sole charge of a baby boy. His extended family help look after him whils

This author is always an automatic one click for me and stories like this are the reason why. Trace Weston is Noah’s brother and agrees to do a favor for his sister-in-law Harlow. The favor, one night of hot sex with her best friend Masey, who was recently dumped by her boyfriend of 10 years. Trace is a single dad to an infant son and runs his own business and he has been feeling like it is time to stop being a playboy and settle down. He is feeling a little envious of what his brother and frien ...more
