    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....

    Katheryne says: "Country boy meets big city girl - worlds collide"
    "The bad girl gets the good boy for a change!"

    What made the experience of listening to Dare You To the most enjoyable?

    Great book! Highly recommend the audio and absolutely fell in love with Beth and Ryan. Happy that the second book in the series was as amazing as the first. Basics: HEA, his/her point of view, steamy make out scenes, no cheating, main characters evolve while staying true to character, story has an ending--no cliffhanger, cool glimpse of high school, stereotypes thrown out the Window, and three dimensional main characters who make me not only believe they could be real, but I liked them. A lot.**spoilers**Beth isn't really "bad" it's just circumstances that have made her have to be tough, though she has done some things she shouldn't (a little pot use to escape her horrible life). Beth is continuously trying to save her hopeless drug-using mom from her abusive boyfriend. The relationship between Beth and her mom Skye is severely dysfunctional and doomed to failure. Until Beth accepts that, she can't really start to live her life the way a 17 year-old should. Ironically, it's while trying to save her mom one last time that starts the chain of events leading to a new life for her in small town Groveton. High school baseball hero Ryan shows Beth not only a new life, but he gives her the unconditional love she desperately needs. Trust is a huge element in the book and Beth lacks the ability to trust anyone, even her uncle. She has horrible abandonment issues as well. Ryan has so many walls to break down, but he does. Gently. The author made a great choice in building Ryan's character. He isn't a stereotypical alpha male. He's sensitive, a gentleman, a caring, kind young man that any mom would love her daughter to bring home. He's easy going, but never falters from his care--turned love for Beth. He is exactly what she needs. I find it ironic and completely appropriate that Ryan is a popular jock just like Luke from the first book, but that's where the similarities end. Ryan is a sensitive man who loves her--skater girl and homecoming queen.This book and Pushing the Limits can be stand alone books. but I recommend PTL first so as to see Beth as she was before.

    No one is like Daemon Black. When he set out to prove his feelings for Katy, he wasn't fooling around. Doubting him isn't something she'll do again and now that they've made it through the rough patches, well, there's a lot of spontaneous combustion going on. But even he can't protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they loved. With help coming from the most unlikely source and Adam's death still lingering with those who loved him, friends will become the deadliest of enemies and the villains will no longer be clear.

    Kim says: "Again, NOT for YAs, but great series."
    "Another great book in a continuing saga"

    What made the experience of listening to Opal the most enjoyable?

    The story is amazing.


    What other book might you compare Opal to and why?

    The entire series, of course. The story, or saga, is not finished. The books feed on one another to build the story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The last scene between Kat and Daemon. I won't go into detail since its a huge spoiler. I have no choice now to continue the series because that's no way to end a book. I'm frustrated, but that won't stop me from coming back for more. It's my favorite and least favorite scene. The writing was fantastic!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Seeing Daemon' s vulnerability with Kitten is especially moving.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend the series in order starting with the prequel.
