Review: Dare To Love Again by:Julie Lessman

Dare to Love Again (The Heart of San Francisco, #2)
About the Book:
Spunky Allison McClare is determined to be a fearless, independent woman, resorting to a mammoth hat pin for protection on her way to and from the school where she teaches. But when she takes a notion to explore the wild Barbary Coast she quickly discovers she is no match for rum-soaked brute strength.

Detective Nick Barone would rather do almost anything than teach this petite socialite jiu-jitsu, but it seems he has little choice in the matter. Sparks fly every time the two meet until a grudging friendship develops into something deeper. But when Nick suddenly leaves town, Allison realizes he’s a fraud just like all the rest of the men she’s cared for. Does she dare love again?

My Review:
Allison thought beginning a new life with a new job would be a little crazy but she never knew it would be this bad. Her first day there she had a fight with a handsome detective, though he may be quite gorgeous, she couldn't stand him. She had a job to do and he was standing in her way fighting her, over what a parking spot for her car. He seriously needed a life and stay away from her. But then her dear mother tells her of how this detective will be helping around the school and will be there more. How is she ever going to get her work done with him around?

Nick has a million other things he'd rather do than help this woman. She doesn't understand how people around this town can be, and she may just get her pretty little self hurt. He was just glad to get away from her the first time but now he'll be working with or well for her, how much fun. She just doesn't know what she got herself into.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Revell.
