Publisher's Summary

With witty characters and heartrending romance, Jayci Lee, author of A Sweet Mess, returns with The Dating Dare - where two people might just find out how hard it is to resist falling in love with the right person.

No serious relationships. This is the one rule Tara Park made for herself and it has been working swimmingly, thank you very much. The occasional fling is fine, especially since she’s busy with Weldon Brewery. But when Seth Kim, temptation personified and her best friend’s new brother-in-law walks into her life, Tara might be willing to bend her golden rule…but only for four dates - the four dates she agreed to after a few good rounds of beer and a game of truth or dare. It’ll be fun. No biggie.

Seth Kim can’t believe Tara agreed to his dating dare. He’s leaving for a new job in Paris in a month and a no-strings attached fling seemed like a nice little distraction for both…. But their secret dates, while sweet and sexy, always hit roadblocks straight out of a romantic comedy. Thankfully, their non-dates and chance meetings are smoother, frequent, and heated. However, the more Seth sees of Tara, the less willing he is to let her go - and what was supposed to be a fun little game turns into something that neither of them are ready for.

But sometimes, the best things in life are the ones we never see coming.

Had potential; poorly executed

The plot could have been great. But the characters were not well written. The leading lady was cruel and narcissistic. I’m not sure how the male thought it was funny and charming at all! He even had some moments where I dropped my jaw in shock and horror. The narration was horrible. These are supposed to be Korean Americans and her tone was Valley Girl from Clueless. I forced myself to keep going but after not even paying attention for 30 minutes and not caring what happened… I gave up.

Perfect for Each Other

I love Jayci Lee’s way of weaving strength and vulnerability into a character. Tara is a strong, modern woman who can be a little scary but also has a genuine kindness. Seth is vulnerable but maybe better at hiding it. Both have been changed by traumatic love experience. When their attraction for each other turns into something more neither is prepared for it.
There were times I was screaming at the characters but all in all, I thought this was one of the most romantic and memorable love stories I have read in a long time.
Art is an expression of our deeper selves and as these two artists become aware of their truths it comes out in every part of their lives.
Fantastic story!!
