Dare You To by Katie McGarry

Pages: 462
Goodreads rating: 4.25 / 5 stars
My Rating:  5/5 Stars
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance

Summary(Goodreads):
Ryan lowers his lips to my ear. "Dance with me, Beth."

"No." I whisper the reply. I hate him and I hate myself for wanting him to touch me again....

"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....

My Review:
I find Dare You To better than Pushing the Limits.I really like this good boy/bad girl love story. We met Beth on the previous book and she really is a bad girl you don't want to mess with. As we get to know her in this book, she's someone who tries to be tough and has a rebellious image. I feel sorry for her because she didn't deserve to suffer at a very young age. She didn't deserve that life. She deserves a home, a guardian who will take care of her. Not the other way around. She somehow gets on my nerves for doing what she wants without THINKING. Such a stubborn lady.

There goes Ryan, who doesn't have the guts to stood up for his own decisions in life. (which annoyed me as well. Thanks to Beth for giving him a WAKE UP CALL.) He maybe a popular guy but he's not a playboy. He did change in the end, and I'm happy for him. A guy who tries to protect his lady love,that's romantic.:)

I'm also looking forward for Isaiah on the next book, hopefully he will find someone that will truly love him. 

I dare you to read this, because it's a good one.
