Dual ARC (Chat) Review: Dare You To
Dare You To by Katie McGarry

Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Source: Netgalley
Pages: 428
Release Date: May 28th 2013
Series: Pushing the Limits #2
Genres: Contemporary, Love & Romance
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.

I received this book for free from the source listed above in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

So Bec and I are trying a totally new thing where we actually discuss the book on Skype because we are lazy creative. You can go ahead and be jealous. But because Bec loves to give out her personal information over the internet, I had to go and remove her last name. Basically, I couldn’t screencap the skype chat so I just did this. Don’t be afraid to tell us what you think but be nice because as you can see at the end, Bec is a violent person. After the initial awkwardness, you can really see our weird, juvenile personalities shine through. So here is our crazy all-over-the-place for Katie McGarry’s new piece of awesome: DARE YOU TO.
Sad to say we are actually legal adults. Hope you found this entertaining, and don’t forget to get your hands on DARE YOU TO as soon as it comes out on May 28th!

    LOL I loved this chat! I’m about 75% through it and I love it so much! I also like it better than Pushing the Limits. I love Ryan and Beth a whole lot. Can’t wait to finish it today!

    ps. I totally have issues spelling Isaiah too. (that took two tries)

    Pushing the Limits broke my heart in so many ways; I can’t imagine liking this more, but I’m open to being proven wrong! I’m still a little upset that Isaiah isn’t with Beth, but I guess you guys came up with a good reason for them not to be together. *grumbles*

  3. Chelsea

    LOL! I love this idea! I absolutely loved this book! This was my first Katie McGarry book and I ran out and bought Pushing the Limits and read it as soon as I finished this one. I think I liked Pushing the Limits a little better but only because I absolutely loved Noah. I really liked the Good guy goes for the bad girl change up for once.

      Thanks! That is interesting, maybe it depends on the person and which book they read first. That makes me curious as to if I would have liked Pushing the Limits better if I had read it after this one.

    I have read Dare You To and I LOVED it. But you know, girls, I liked Noah more than Ryan but Beth more than Echo. I guess there characters fit my type more. Anyway,I LOVED the symbolic bottle of rain, too. I loved everything in this book up to the ending. And I gave it four stars :P
    Your reader,

    I loved the chat review. It basically covered everything I thought of the book. I’ll have to read Crossing the Line now.

  6. Aman

    I so agree with Rebecca: Dare you To have such a great supporting cast, I loved Beth’s best friend ( I can’t remember her name, Chris gf) and Yeah, Gwen can DIE. And I loved the Can game they played throughout the book, it was too cute. DYT was so much better than PTL and I’m definitely going to buy a physical copy when it’s out.
    Fun review!!!

  7. Delaney

    I was laughing so much and I literally did not get 99.999% what you guys were saying. XDDD Okay, maybe 100% cause I haven’t reading Pushing the Limits or this book. But it was also informative! So that’s good! THIS IS SUCH AN REVIEW!!! (i shall not be jealous. XD)

    Yes, Alise and Bec, that was very creative. ;D

    Ooh, I feel like I’m eavesdropping on your conversation, exciting! (I mean, I don’t like to eavesdrop but…) LOL, that was fun! I haven’t read any of those books yet. Yes well, I’m sure when you need to act like an adult you do. Hope you do this more often lol

  9. Kaitlyn (The Bookworm)

    LOL, this chat is a great way to do a review! Love it. I also adored Dare You To, and I so agree that the supporting characters were amazing. Especially Lacy – she was such an awesome friend to Beth. :D
