"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....
Synopsis from goodreads.com
It has been hard to find a comparing romance for Pushing the Limits, Katie McGarry's first book in this series. Unexpected twists and turns as well as the tender love both main characters shied and clung to at the same time pushed my expectations high. Now comes the sequel with a focus on former minor character Beth and I'm both wary and excited for its release. Beth is a good and very close friend to both Noah and Isaiah in Pushing the Limits. I also perceived her as a fighter and rough on the outside. The synopsis for Dare you to now suggests Beth and Ryan - two strong characters - clashing and their love being based on a dare. I expect a rollercoaster of feelings and am a little sceptical as to where that will lead, but I learned from book one: there's always hope!
Which release are you not so patiently waiting for this Wednesday?
