Just before Christmas, I was sent the new Mills & Boon book A Week to be Wild by JC Harroway to celebrate the launch of Mills & Boon's sexiest book series yet, Dare. Dare promises us stories that might make the faint-hearted blush! They still have the same great stories but they've had a makeover with a brand new look to their books. This is a bold and positive step forward for Mills & Boon who launched in 1908.
I do prefer the new Mills & Boon book covers, I know lots of women who would have read Mills & Boon but the previous covers would put them off. It's a shame as the size of their books are really travel friendly, but people were a little embarrassed to read them in public because of the dated covers. However, these new covers have had a great reception and are a step in the right direction for modernizing Mills & Boon for today's readers.
Libby agrees to stay in London for a week longer than she originally planned to help Alex out with his charity, but this involves experiencing lots of the adrenaline filled activities that Alex has planned for his charity. While working together they cant deny the chemistry between them and so agree to a no-strings fling while Libby is in London. Alex brings Libby out of her comfort zone in every way and before long they are experiencing real feelings for each other. But once Libby goes home, they'll be an ocean between them and how could she make it work with another adrenaline junkie after what happened the first time around..?
I enjoyed this book, I am looking forward to reading more of the new sassy Dare series. If you don't like very descriptive sex scenes in books then this isn't for you. Some of it is very graphic. I think we can expect more of these explicit scenes in the new dare series.
I applaud Mills & Boon for bringing their books up to date and making such a bold move. You can get your own copy here
