But when these two guys realize they don’t want to be without Ava they will do anything to have her. Even if it means they have to share her.
***18+ This book contains graphic sexual content and language. This book is a cliffhanger. There will be another book.***
Very good story line! *Warning – there is cheating (some may argue that it isn’t but it kinda is!)*
I’ve never read a book with a plot like this one! I really didn’t think I’d enjoy it but I found myself feeling sorry for Ava. Whilst the plot is as stated above, cheating, you can’t help but fall for her naiveté. This is based around high school kids and I’m sure we can all understand the rampant hormones we all go through. I really loved the relationship that Ava has with Jake and Bobby, and I definitely wasn’t expecting that plot twist! I say no more! But if you love a southern belle romance then this is worth a read! It’s different and enticing, with an ending that leaves you scratching at the cover of the second!

This is Ava’s hometown. Home to the infamous love triangle of Ava, Bobby, and Jake. Small towns know everything. Ava couldn’t wait to leave Bell Buckle after shame came knocking on her door. Afraid and embarrassed, she left thinking she needed more than just another quiet small town life anyway. She never looked back; leaving her family and friends behind; thinking she’d wouldn’t miss it. And for a while, she didn’t because as the saying goes, “Out of sight, out of mind.” But when she has no choice but to return home after years away she begins to think maybe home really is where the heart is.
Question is will she be welcomed back? Can she find forgiveness with the two men she destroyed all those years ago?
Authors Note: This is the conclusion to Dare To Love Two. This is not a Stand Alone, the first book should be read before this one. Content is for eighteen and over.
I didn’t know what to expect from book number two! C C Ann has successfully grown the characters through this second book and we see them entering adulthood. I still couldn’t help but feel sorry for both Jake & Bobby but from a female perspective I understood Ava and her ability to make a mountain out of a mole hill. While I understand some readers may disagree with Ava hugely – remember this is fiction and that’s what makes it fun to write. C C Ann has created a world in Bell Buckle where you can honestly picture yourself, and the characters. Their surroundings are brought to life on the pages, their feelings and emotions too. I can’t wait for book three and to find out how Ashley’s doing!🌼
