Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills brings you a brand-new heartfelt, sexy contemporary romance with I DARE YOU.

Bad Ass Athlete: I dare you to…
Delaney Shaw: Who is this?
The late night text is random, but “Bad Ass Athlete” sure seems to know who she is…
Delaney Shaw. 
Good girl.
Lover of fluffy kitties and Star Wars. 
His dare? Spend one night in his bed—a night he promises will be unforgettable—and she can solve the mystery of who he is. 
She knows she shouldn’t, but what else is she going to do with her boring Valentine’s Day?
One sexy hook-up later, her mind is blown and the secret’s out.
Maverick Monroe.
Bad boy.
The most talented football player in the country.
Just ask him.
Too bad for him Delaney’s sworn off dating athletes forever after her last heartbreak.

But Maverick wants more than one night and refuses to give up on winning Delaney’s heart. She isn’t one to be fazed by a set of broad shoulders. 

After the semester ends, will the bad boy land the nerd girl or will the secrets they keep from each other separate them forever?

My Review…

Love, love, love Ilsa’s work!

I Dare You is a fast paced, can’t put down story of Princess Leia and He-Man! OK, OK, it’s really Maverick and Delaney, but their nicknames are awesome!

In true Ilsa fashion you get the alternate POV’s which makes the story just so much more! You can see into the minds of both main characters.

Delaney is a self professed Nerd Girl and she is proud of who she is.  What she has been through in the past has made her the person she is and she is amazing! She has be hurt, but she tries to rise above.

Maverick, oh what an alpha he is! Egotistical but with a heart of gold! Pining away for years for a chance at Nerd Girl and when he does, he goes guns blazing.  He has the weight of the world on his shoulders and he struggles to keep everything status quo.  He finds solace in Delaney.

The flow of this story, from their first meeting, to the end is perfection.  You see the vulnerability, you see the angst and you see something special growing between them.

I loved the “dares”, I liked that Delaney felt compelled to complete them.  The text’s between them were funny and sweet and sometimes pretty hawt!

Ilsa never fails to bring a NA story to life, with realism, honesty and a touch of unicorn sparkle! I have been a faithful stalker of hers for years and she has yet to disappoint me with her words.   I am hoping that because this is The Hook Up #1, we will get more from some of the secondary characters! I have my favorites and hoping to hear more!

Get this book, enjoy the story! Get immersed in Ilsa’s world!
