Product Description

**Mature Content Warning** Recommended for ages 17+ due to language and sexual content.

After the sudden death of his wife two years ago, Darren Griffin has finally found peace. He has a good life, good job, two daughters he’d do anything for, and a beautiful home on the beach.
Greer Monroe is grieving the loss of her father. It’s the final rung on the broken ladder that’s become her life—crappy job, no friends, and a cheating ex-boyfriend. At the insistence of her aunt, Greer decides to spend some time at her family’s beach house.
When the glee-filled sound of children’s laughter dances through the breeze, Greer finds herself smiling again. The neighbor girls are carefree, depicting a life Greer has only dreamed about. Husband, children, happiness—a family. And their father, Darren, he’s everything a woman could ever want.
But it is, of course, only a dream.
She can’t stay at Carolina Beach, no matter how much she adores Darren and his daughters. She has responsibilities at home, a mother who needs her. Where there’s love, there’s heartbreak, and she can’t go through that again. And she sure as hell won’t do that to those little girls.
But Darren isn’t letting her go that easily. It’s been so long since he’s felt this way for anyone. Greer is his missing piece, a piece he never thought he’d find.
Saying goodbye is hard, but sometimes starting over is even harder.
Only when they dare to dream again, will they ever dare to love.

Wow I love all of Harms writing and this is no different, it's sad, it's funny, it's happy, it's heated and sexy. I can't wait for the next one to come out.
Greer and Darren are just meant to be together when Greer loses her father her family send her on a mini vacation to help find herself again she didn't expect to find the love of her life and two little girls to steal her heart. After Darren lost his wife and mother of his children he didn't think he could love again until he sees Greer watching him and the girls we they meet on the beach lunch turns to love.

If you are after a book that is beautiful and make you immerse yourself into the characters this book is definitely for you.

Darren and Greer are beautiful together and the two girls are just heart warming. This book does set of a range of emotions. I had tears in some parts and complete and utter heart warming laughter in other parts.

This is certainly a perfectly well written book but dont expect any thing other feom the author. I would definitely recommend this author to anybody who wants to read a book that you can emerse yourself into and love the characters and wish the book never ended.

I am certainly waiting for her next book cause c.a harms is a quality author who you can pretty much guarantee you are going to get an amazing book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Darren is Mine ❤❤ 14 February 2017
By Stephanie Deskins - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wow! When I seen that CA Harms was writing this book I was super excited for it. Darren is the perfect man. He is kind, loving, sexy, and very alpha. The scenes with Darren and his two daughter made me swoon and adding Greer to the dynamic made it me completely melt. This book was an amazing start to a fantastic series.This story took me through so many emotions, that I am still reeling from it. I am excited to see what is next with this series..especially Darren's brother Dean.

If you love a great romance, a guy who would do anything for his daughters and woman, and a guaranteed HEA then this book is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved Darren and Greer 21 February 2017

I bought this book.
So I have had the privileged to meet this amazing author and I have only read one book when she first published. Being a blogger it’s tough to start reading books one they are in the middle of a series so I have let a lot of her books go. When I saw she started a new series, I jumped. But seriously CA, hit me over the head girl for letting you slip so many books past me….
So our girl Greer….worst day EVER!! Her father dies unexpectant and she goes to seek comfort from her boyfriend to find him with one of his many ex conquests. After a few weeks of just walking numbly through life, her mom and aunt tell her to go. Go far far away to the family vacation home to regroup and re-center her life. Figure out what she wants/needs from life. The first day in her new reality she sees her dream…..a loving man with his 2 daughters. She can remember her life with her father and then remembers the hurt that she thought she might have that with her ex.
Darren sees the stranger and is curious about her as are his daughters. They want to know about the pretty princess that lives behind their house. The couple play some stalkery type stuff trying to learn about the other when Darren just kinda calls her out on it and they go out on a date.
Once the couple begin to date, the chemistry and connection is clear as day. They are both drawn to each other and his daughters love love love Greer as she is as much in love with them. As the book goes on, they know there is a time limit and theybegin to wonder what the other is feeling and what will happen WHEN her time ends at the beach house.
I liked the story and I loved the girls. I loved the girls talking to Greer’s ex on the phone. That scene cracked me up. I know some people will think this is an insta-love story and in a way it might be but they both have been through the same situation that their quick bond is legit to me at least. Also can I say Greer and Darren’s family scenes….HILARIOUS!!!!!
So yeah Smiley, I won’t be letting your books pass me by anymore!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ! Emotional, beautiful, and sexy all in one! 17 February 2017
By Lydia - HEA Bookshelf | MBMB - Published on

CA Harms knows how to break your heart and heal it, all within the pages of one book. She knows how to masterfully write an emotional romance that fully covers the value of second chances. From each one of her books, I've come to expect an amazing story, and let me tell you, she never disappoints.

"You're my forever," he whispered against my neck ... "My today, my tomorrow."

The story behind Darren's character will make your heart ache. You can't help but feel for the man! Loosing his wife, the love of his life? Uh, tear-jerker! His two little girls are the most adorable characters EH-VER. Oh, my heart! They are just too adorable!! I could see why and how easily Greer fell in love with them! How could she not?

Greer's story is not as heart-breaking as Darren's, but still quite emotional. Losing her dad and coming home to find her boyfriend doing the tango with another woman STINGS....badly! A vacation is just what she needed!

Darren and Greer could not have met at a more perfect time. Their story is very much realistic, and I love that! CA shows us the insecurities they both feel as they're getting to know each other, mainly Darren with being a single father. Seeing him worry about how his relationship with Greer could affect his girls is truly something that melted my heart while reading, and it was spot-on!

"I feel like all those dreams I had as a little girl have finally come true and for once I'm being granted the happy ending I've always only dreamed of."

Such a GOOD book. A beautiful, sexy, and fun story that had me glued to my iPad from beginning to end. In true CA Harms fashion, this is a must-read! FIVE STARS!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great new series by CA Harms - can't wait for more!! 25 February 2017
By Kristin Marvin - Published on

Dare to Dream is the first book in a new series by CA Harms.

We meet Greer Monroe as she is dealing with the death of her father and the betrayal of a crappy boyfriend. At the suggestion of her mother and aunt, Greer heads to her family's vacation home in Carolina Beach to find herself.

Darren Griffin has just gotten his life back together after the sudden death of his wife leaves him a single dad to two young girls. Darren has no intention of falling in love again. He believes that Lynn was his one and only. His life now is dedicated to his daughters, Violet and Vivian, and his construction company.

Life has a way of happening when you least expect it. Over her stay in Carolina Beach, the Griffin's work their way into Greer's heart just as much as she works her way into their hearts. Is love enough to make this happy new group a family or was this just a fling while on vacation?

Another great new series by CA Harms - can't wait for more!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this Amazing Book 16 February 2017
By Karie Gibson - Published on

I love when a book grabs my attention from the first page. My heart broke for Greer and then Darren. I could feel every emotion in this book. There were times I cried and then times I had a good laugh. I loved Vivian and Violet. Those girls were too sweet. There's nothing sexier than a great man with his kids. Greer will make you love her with her big heart and compassion. I believe Gran could be me in a few dozen years. That lady cracked me up. I highly suggest reading this amazingly sexy book.
