London Abbott, head librarian of the Bronx Public Library, is determined to turn a reading initiative into a raving success, solidifying the career and financial security she craves. Adding the burden of a tag-along playboy trying to improve his tarnished image is a stressor London doesn’t need, but when a trusted friend calls in a favor, she’s saddled with bad-boy football star Ryker Christiansen. 

Ryker never imagined his lucrative contract with the Miami Thunder would ever be at risk, but after too many nights of partying he’s told to repair his tattered reputation or be terminated. Sent to New York to preen for the media and show his altruistic side by working with children and seniors, he’s committed to sitting in a Bookmobile with antsy kids, ornery seniors, and taking orders from a snotty librarian. 

Unsympathetic, London tests Ryker’s mettle without mercy. He earns her respect by meeting every challenge she creates, proving he’s more than just one more overindulged athlete. But there is one more prize he’s determined to win, so he dares London to step out of her carefully constructed world for a walk with him on the wild side. 

London expects to bring Ryker down a notch or two, but as their slow-burning heat erupts into sexual flames, the intensity of the fire threatens to either destroy their hearts or forge them together. Discovering which comes with a price. Will they emerge stronger? Or are they destined to be…Consumed by the Dare. 

I enjoyed this book. It is well written, smooth flowing, and a quick/easy read. The author did a good job portraying the characters, their emotions and the experiences they went through.

I loved London's character. She is a young and vibrant librarian, who is dedicated to her work and to giving back to her community. Her hard work has been put to use putting together a reading initiative. She is skeptical and judgmental of Ryker, a bad boy football player who is trying to get good press to negate the bad. Having a rough upbringing, trust does not come easy to her.

Aside from playing football, Ryker loves to party and loves easy women. This is how everyone sees him, including librarian London. Ryker doesn't let people see that there is much more to him than parties and women. When he gets bad press he is forced to volunteer helping London with her reading initiative.

Both parties are frustrated and neither is looking forward to the next few days. Ryker can't wait to be done volunteering before he ever begins, and London can't wait to be rid of him. Once they spend a little time together will they still feel the same way?

I look forward to more by this author. Review for Mommy's Naughty Playground
