Dare You To by Katie McGarry ~ Review


"I dare you…"If anyone knew the truth about Beth Risk's home life, they'd send her mother to jail and seventeen-year-old Beth who knows where. So she protects her mom at all costs. Until the day her uncle swoops in and forces Beth to choose between her mom's freedom and her own happiness. That's how Beth finds herself living with an aunt who doesn't want her and going to a school that doesn't understand her. At all. Except for the one guy who shouldn't get her, but does….

Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock—with secrets he can't tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn't be less interested in him.

But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams—and his life—for the girl he loves, and the girl who won't let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all….

I loved Pushing the Limits and was so pleasantly surprised when I loved Dare You To just as much or more than Pushing the Limits. Dare You To was beautiful, emotional, gritty, and raw. 4.5 stars.

We were introduced to Beth a little in Pushing the Limits but Ryan is a completely new character. Obliviously base on the title, it all starts with a dare between these two. Ryan and his friends are competing to see how many telephone numbers they can get their hands on...being typical boys. When a tough-looking chick (Beth) comes in the door, Ryan is dared to get her phone number. Never one to back down from a bet, Ryan is up for the challenge but Beth has no problem turning down the cute little jock at Taco Bell that's hitting on her and trying to get her number. But life is full of surprises......Beth sees Ryan much sooner than she expects, after she is sent to live with her uncle in a town outside of St. Loius after a run-in with her mom's jerk abusive boyfriend. Beth does not want to be in Groveton at all and her life gets a little out of hand, but when her uncle gives Beth an ultimatum she can't refuse, Beth has no choice but to agree to her uncle's rules and try her best to lie low and follow the rules.

Things heat back up when Ryan sees Beth at school--dare's back on! Things change when Ryan quickly falls for the beautiful girl with tough exterior and Beth against her better judgement falls for Ryan. What starts out as only a game ends up being so much more, but will this only end in heartbreak for this couple? Read on to find out!

Dare You To is a def must read! The story is beautiful and the writing is amazing and sucks you in. . Katie McGarry is one of my favorite authors and this is one of my favorite YA series!
