Dare You To by Katie McGarry

"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 Beth finds herself starting over at a school where no one understands her. 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. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image is risking everything for the girl he loves, and the girl who won't let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all….

My Thoughts:
4.5/5 Stars
Another great book by Katie McGarry!
Emotional, Romantic, & Suspenseful....
  Beth is stubborn, but she has a heart of gold. Taking care of her mom is her number one priority. No matter what others tell her she is always trying to protect her mom from the crazy, drug addict boyfriend. She has guards up and is determined to let no one else in. When Beth meets Ryan though her eyes are opened up to trust & love. He shows her that it is okay to want to stay in one place. Their relationship goes from bitter to sweet as the book progresses and they quickly became one of my favorite book couples.
What starts as a dare soon becomes so much more...
Forbidden love... maybe? Beth is from a rougher family. Ryan is an athlete with uptight, control freak parents. They forbid him to be with Beth, but that doesn't stop him. His passion toward her outweighs everything else. He puts his heart on the line and even his life at one point.

I loved this couple so much and the storyline consumed me from page one. The characters help one another to expose their inner desires and wants. They each go into the book thinking their future has one path and come out with a whole new outlook.
I highly recommend it to all YA & NA readers.
