In a deliciously sexy twist on the classic game, USA Today bestselling author Mira Lyn Kelly proves that when playing truth or dare—always choose dare.

After her one attempt at commitment ends with the discovery that her fiancĂ© already has a wife and kid, Maggie Lawson vows that the only people she’ll love ’til death do they part will be her friends. Unfortunately that means Maggie letting her bestie rope her into a year-long dating dare: score a new date each month or pay a penalty. Seems doable—until Maggie’s date stands her up, leaving only one option: the sexy stud who just moved in upstairs. The problem? He and Maggie can’t stop fighting—and that’s just the beginning.

His name is Tyler Daniels and the last thing he needs is his neighbor distracting him with her girl-next-door smile and sharp tongue. Tyler’s in Chicago for one reason: to woo back his selfish ex in order to reclaim the child he once thought was his—and that means keeping Maggie out of his bed. A tall order, since Maggie has become a bigger temptation than he ever expected to face. But before they can even consider leaving the past behind, Maggie and Tyler must accept a brand-new dare: real, forever love.

My Review:

Intro: I have been in the sort of reading slump lately where I only feel “right” reading books by authors I have read before. So the prospect of reading a new to me author is daunting. I don’t think it’s a slump really but a rut. But I ended up loving this one. A lot.


Heroine: Maggie-I loved Maggie. She was so likable and witty. She came across as very real to me. That’s not a common thing for me. Her backstory was also quite heartwrenching.

Hero: Tyler-I liked him as well. Oddly enough I liked him a bit less that I liked Maggie. I can’t even pinpoint why. He was a great hero with all the good qualities a good hero should have but I didn’t feel quite the connection with him as I did with Maggie.

Chemistry: I love bicker at first sight romances. I love the banter. And these two definitely had the bicker going. Their stories were also quite tragic. It was lovely to see these two come together.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: I really liked this book quite a bit. It’s not very often a book can keep me interested even if I feel a disconnect with the hero. But Kelly created such compelling chemistry between the two main characters that it really didn’t matter if the hero wasn’t to my liking. I can’t wait for the next book.
