A NOLA heart Novel
"...Luke O'Connor's smiles were exceedingly rare. If he hadn't proved their existence by bestowing two on her, she might have thought them an urban legend."
Maria Luis is the best at writing witty banter, her characters feel real and definitely have heart and humour.
Luke and Anna's story is like catching up with old friends that you hope will see the light and find each other. It was great to see Danvers, Brady, Jade and Shae back, and for Jules to come into his own to round out the cast.
Both Luke and Anna are strong characters with spunk and sass neither can back down from a challenge!
"Then, she said the words that sealed her fate: 'I dare you to prove it.'"
Dare You to Love Me is a stand alone from Maria's NOLA heart series. You don't have to read the 2 previous stories, but they are all really great so you should. The first 2 "Say You'll Be Mine" and "Take A Chance On Me" are rooted in the PD with main characters being police. In this instalment we have a former military lead, Luke is stronger than his limp suggests. Anna is much more than a business owner- successful single loving Mom and a kick-ass entrepreneur, she just hasn't had time to think of herself.
"Luke ... was moment by moment leaving her more unsteady in her stilettos."
If you enjoy Maria Luis you will NOT be disappointed! If you are new enjoy the ride! I happily received an ARC of this book to honestly review and I loved it!

Playing to win!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 June 2020
Luke O'Connor is back in NOLA after suffering an accident whilst in the army, spending time in his mother's herbal shop he is literally floored by Anna Bryce. Unaware that they know each other an attraction is born. Meeting again by accident in a bar, Luke is privy to a disastrous first date of Anna's and a date is born. They each have to find three dates for Anna and the person she chooses makes whoever found them the winner. In the background an attraction builds for both of them. What happens with the dare? Who will win? This book was both hilarious and at times poignant. The addition of Anna's 14 year old son Julian ups the hilarity factor! A definite 5 star read!
Another Brilliant Book from The Brilliant Maria LuisReviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 September 2017
"Dare You To Love Me" is the 3rd book in the "NOLA Heart Series" by Maria Luis. I am really enjoying Maria's writing. This is a Well written book And had a great storyline. It is a real page turner and you won't want to put it down. The characters Luke & Anna are well written and were very likeable. They just pull you in to the story. I loved their chemistry and interaction. This is an Enjoyable, Entertaining, Funny must read romance and I would recommend it to anyone. I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. Can't wait to read more from the brilliant Maria Luis

excellentReviewed in India on 16 September 2017
5stars...Must Read!!! I'll admit that I was waiting for this book impatiently because I was already curious about Luke and Anna when they were first introduced in the previous books...and post finishing the book, I loved how author played their story out...it was perfect, loved the storyline, as usual the writing style was amazing...Sassy and Jules and everyone else from the previous books were here...it was like catching up with old friends and getting a peek into their lives...these are the kind of people you'd want in your lives who always have your back and just care about you...this is all (and more) the author was able to articulate and showcase in her writing...this is a fun read, with the right dose of emotions, and has the kind of people I would root for their HEA...loved the book/series/characters...on a side note: considering Jules (Anna's son) has all these amazing people in his lives, he would turn out be an amazing human being..I hope he gets his own HEA someday and I get to read that book too :-)..ha ha
I love the gorgeous, broken heroes in this seriesReviewed in Canada on 25 December 2017
I love the gorgeous, broken heroes in this series. They appeal to that fixer gene inside every woman I know. Some women are able to resist that pull, but I’m not one of them. I’ve loved Luke from the moment he stepped onto the page in the first book. I wanted to see his happily-ever-after something fierce. When we first met Anna, I wasn’t sure what to make of her. Since then, she’s grown into such a vibrant, independent businesswoman. After that first book I couldn’t wait to see her forever either. It left me squee-ing in delight that these two were the solution to each others’ problems; even when they were being each others’ problems. The snappy banter left me giggling hysterically. But the lengths that they go to in order to resist the pull towards one another made me want to pull my hair out by the roots. I can’t wait to see what the author has in store next for this group of friends.
