The Party Dare by Anne Oliver

download (7)

Leo is plagued by guilt and a sense of responsibility towards his younger sister. Everything and everyone else becomes secondary to taking care of her. He finds it hard to relinquish the control and treats the young adult as if she were still a child.

Of course his odd habit of dropping all and everything at a moments notice to ensure the safety and well-being of said sister, tends to play havoc with his social life. Not many dates are going to put up with cancellations at last-minute or  a basket full of broken promises.

Breanna isn’t the type to play the wilting wallflower. She takes what she wants when she wants it.  She doesn’t however take kindly to the peculiar on-off-on behaviour Leo exhibits. Acting all hot and bothered one second, then ice-cold and disinterested the next.

Their tug of war is a lengthy one  and their romance is one with very unexpected twists and turns. I received a copy of this book courtesy of Harlequin UK and Mills & Boon.
