After ending a relationship to a cheating, domineering man, Isabelle Masters takes off in her leased Mercedes, only to be arrested for grand theft and hauled to a local police station. To her surprise, she is rescued by the most unlikely person possible, Gabriel Dare, a man she's been attracted to for far too long. Gabe offers Isabelle freedom along with an invitation to Eden, an exclusive island resort where everything and anything is possible.
Although Gabe yearns to possess Isabelle, he knows all too well he must fight his primitive need to bind her to him, and instead help bring out the independent woman she yearns to become - or risk losing her for good.
A woman who needs to run her own life. A man who needs to exert control. Can she surrender to his erotic demands without losing her sense of self once more?

I'm a huge fan of Carly Phillips. I've absolutely fallen in love with her Dare to Love series and loved Dare to Surrender so much. Dare to Surrender is part of the Invitation to Eden series of stories that have been coming out since the beginning of the year.
Gabe Dare is currently my favorite member of the Dare family from this series. I loved him from the very first time he appeared on the page. I also loved Isabelle and knew she and Gabe were perfect for one another from the beginning. The chemistry between Gabe and Izzy has been there since they met back with she was still dating Lance, her cheating ex-boyfriend.
While I loved that Gabe initially rescued Izzy, I also loved that her saw who she really was and knew when she needed space to figure out what she needed on her own. Gabe is super protective of Izzy, and has to have control in the bedroom. Gabe and Izzy together were explosive. Even Gabe's siblings could feel the chemistry when they were around them.
I absolutely loved the time Gabe and Izzy spent together at Eden. While Izzy is there to help decorate the new club Gabe's sister Lucy is opening, there was still plenty of time for Izzy and Gabe to spend time together. As Gabe and Izzy spent more time together, they grew closer and only Gabe trying to keep his past a secret seemed to be an issue. I love how Lucy pushed Gabe to talk to Izzy and share his past.
I've once again fallen in love with the characters in a Carly Phillips book. The Dare to Love series gets better and sexier with each book in the series. I am already counting down until I get more stories in the Dare to Love series.
