Dare you to by Katie McGarry

17372887Ryan 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....

"Screw Perfect" -Ryan 


In Ryan and Beths' world, there's no such thing as perfect.  It takes striving to want to be better, and do their damnest  to have hope, to be  strong, and get through the rough patches in their lives, to actually move forward. Their story gives a whole new meaning to an  "eye opener".  They  complete one another, when one is in doubt about their life, the other is always there as a "pick me upper".

Beth is a striking character with a spunky attitude that I normally love in a heroine. But this time she just goes far and beyond. I have my patience to tolerate a character to a certain extent. Her "cry me a river" about her mom just drove me insane. I guess I could understand her side, but talk about apeshit annoying. Other than dealing with her chaotic life, meeting Ryan changes her world for he better. But will she be willing to trust and let someone else love and protect her for a change? That's a question I thought would never get answered.....

Now *ahem* let me jot a few thoughts down about Ryan.......

Oh wait  *my fingers are glued together*  I couldn't have asked for a better Hero!!! He may be a jock. But he isn't an asshole. His honesty and gentlemanly ways have wooed me!  He is sweet, lovable,kind and everything in between. He's the kind of guy that obviously loves bad girls. He just needed to find the right one. And Beth is definitely the skater-type girl with the potty mouth and jacked up attitude, that is all he needed to see the world differently. Who knew the person who everyone thought had a perfect set life, could end up with a screwed up family. 

All in all,I enjoyed the story. It's nice to pickup a book every once and a while from an author whom I know what to expect and not be let down :)

4 STARS!
