Dare You To (Pushing the Limits #2)
by Katie McGarry

Goodreads synopsis:
"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 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 all....


Pushing the Limits, the first book to this, is almost definitely my favourite read of 2012. I was obsessed with it, and still am, even though I read it months ago! So of course, this was going to appear on Wishlist Wednesday sooner or later!
Beth's character wasn't a particularly prominent one in Pushing the Limits, but she was still interesting, and I can't wait to read her story. Hopefully the chemistry between her and Ryan in this, will be as potent as it was between Echo and Noah in Pushing the Limits!

I still have to read Pushing the Limits. So many series to start. The second installment looks super promising as well. Thanks for sharing it and thanks for hosting. This is my first time participating in Wishlist Wednesday.

I read Pushing the Limits and enjoyed it, it wasn't really a favourite though >.< I couldn't stand the inappropriate swearing, the book could really have gone without it. I'll have to hear from my blogging buddies if it contains too much swearing, before I buy it.

I haven't read Pushing the Limits but have heard so much great stuff about it, just not sure if it's my kind of book.

I'm so excited for this one too! Pushing the Limits was one of my favourites of the year :)

Becca, I wasn't sure it would be my kind of book either, but it really surprised me. I loved it! Give it a go, I say! Think it's still 20p on kindle at the moment! X
