    1. There are some books you read that make you feel very inadequate as an author. This would be one of them.

    3. "We lose control- quickly, so fast we've broken beyond floating to flying. I inhale and all I smell is Ryan: the sweet smell of summer rain. I'm so giddy I could almost laugh- I'm finally high. Higher than I've ever been without drugs, higher than I've ever been with other guys, higher than"Thoughts BEFORE book:Wow. What is going on here. It's BETH AND ISAIAH- NOT this Ryan guy whoever the hell HE is. I'm sorry I'm team Isaiah all the way. I mean c'mon he's such a good guy. He's took care of Bet [...]

    4. There are times when you stand on the cusp of moments so huge, you know you’ll remember them forever. It all started at a Taco Bell It was just a dare
Ryan and his friends never back away from a dare. He and his friend Chris are getting girls numbers and Chris dares Ryan to get Beth’s. He has no idea what he is in for. She turns him down, but she is still on his mind- We all remember Noah’s friend Beth from Pushing the LimitsBeth is a bad ass. The tough girl that no one messes with. Insi [...]

    5. Beth Risk from Dare You To : Otherwise known as a classic example of how to self-sabotage. 3.5 stars. I'll be going against the grain in saying that I liked this book better than the first in the series. I understand that the masses went wild over Pushing the Limits, but I struggled with shakily written stereotypes and repetitive speech patterns. That said, the first book was engaging and the characters were likable, which was enough of a reason for me to want to continue on with the series. Aft [...]

    6. 5 DARE YOU TO STARS.Jock v's skater girl This story is written to young adult perfection. The writing is beautifully put together and descriptive. From page one I was hooked. If your looking for a young adult story with depth and emotion then look no further. This author has delivered a novel that i'm sure will capture the attention of most lovers of this genre.There are so many positives about this book I'm not sure how to write it all coherently in one review, but here are my thoughts As with [...]

    7. Pushing the Limits, excuse my profanity, is a bastard to follow up on. It was such an emotional, powerful book, so neat and well-constructed, that I was wary to pick up the next one. I needn’t have been entirely terrified, Dare You To is still a pretty good book with enjoyable things to reccomend it. I simply didn’t love it as much as I wanted to. I didn’t even cry once. It made me question, for a moment, if McGarry had lost her touch to regularly make me bawl like a little baby who got pr [...]

    8. Katie McGarry wowed me with her debut, Pushing the Limits, last year. I was a little bit hesitant to start Dare You To because it was Beth's story and I never really liked her character in the book. Plus, she wasn't going to be with Isaiah, who clearly really loved her. But then, the cover came out! And well, you probably just guessed what happened!Like I mentioned above, Beth was never really a character that I enjoyed. When I started Dare You To, I decided to temporarily forget my feelings for [...]

    9. CAN or CAN'T? This is the question I finished this one a few days ago so my review might not make sense. Just a few thoughts, okay?I love YA! Yeah, I know, I keep selling myself like an erotica reader but what really grabs me is a good YA story and this one was pretty good.I love hate/love relationships. They are the best for me and let's say Beth was not a big fan of Ryan when they met at Taco Bell. "There is absolutely nothing you can do to ever get me to give you my name or number""I bet I ca [...]

    10. Well, Katie McGarry just wowed me again! Dare to You was just as AMAZING if not more that Pushing the Limits!! I was full of intense emotions, and on the edge of my seat the entire read, completely immersed in Beth and Ryan’s story!! I knew Beth’s story would be something else, because she was such a hard and troubled character in Pushing the Limits, and now we finally see why. Beth is living with her aunt after having the crap beat out of her by her mother’s boyfriend, Trent (what a gem!) [...]

    11. Dare You To is a perfect example of a great YA story. I adored Beth and Ryan. She is rough around the edges but vulnerable, and he is a charming, virginal baseball player. Their love story is sweet, emotional and heartbreaking at times, and it all begins with a dare.I really enjoyed Beth and Ryan's story. Experiencing them falling in love while struggling to deal with some difficult personal issues, I was constantly pulling for them. This was a wonderful, young adult romance.

    12. I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review This book was very clearly NOT FOR ME. It was so NOT FOR ME that I refuse to even finish or review it. Here are my reading notes: Two perspectives, guy and girl, love that. Ew. Chris, Mr. MC's bestie? Has an “awesome” girlfriend yet is playing the “lemme get your number” game? Total skeeze move."All girls are the sameAll girls want the same thing. A guy who shows interest." Really, Mr. MC who I’m supposed to like? Really? Hmmm, Beth [...]

    13. *** EDIT 12/6/2012***Cover & Blurb: Beth is very pretty, and so much unlike what I had in mind. And erm is it okay if I like Ryan a little as in a whole damn lot? Gee, that hunk!I'm certain it's gonna be a trilogy now, unless Isaiah finds his own HEA in Dare You To, which I sincerely doubt. So, make it three McGarry! You know you want to!-----As soon as I saw that Pushing the Limits will have a sequel I was slightly irked since the story felt more than complete. But then I noticed it's about [...]

    15. Whoa!!!! The second book was also Whoa!!!. Amazing!!!!!I really liked these series very much, and i liked even more Beth and Ryan's stories I'm using plural because they were two different stories who connected and became one And that i love too much in these books.

    17. This book was way longer than I initially anticipated it to be. I’ve had mixed feelings throughout reading it, but in the end, I was glad that I stuck with it.Dare You Tois the sequel toPushing The Limitsand follows the story of Beth (who we previously met) and Ryan. Beth’s home life is a private and troubling matter that she is not willing to share with anyone. In attempts to protect her mother from going to jail, Beth finds herself in an unfortunate predicament that leaves her with no othe [...]

    19. After Pushing the Limits became one of my favorite reads of last year, I went into this one with a lot of enthusiasm and high expectations. I'm sad that I didn't en up loving it as much, but I still quite enjoyed it and am happy that I read it. I also can see why so many are enamored by it, if I had read it at another time I might have enjoyed it much more as well. As it stands I've been reading a string of similarly plotted books lately so my patience for certain elements of the book has been w [...]

    21. From time to time I like to read love stories.I like to read stories that make me smile, stories about first love and hope and innocence. I like to read stories about opposite people, from very different backgrounds, that discover that there is something that can bind their worlds.From time to time I like to forget about work and day to day duties, and instead curl up in my bed with a cup of tea and a cute book that can make giggle and sigh and keep my fingers crossed for a happy endingWhen I st [...]

    24. 4 STARSI wasn't the biggest fan of Noah and Echo's book, mostly because I felt it was bogged down by the heaviness of the theme without succeeding at making me actually care for the characters (especially Echo) enough to sympathize. I didn't even care much for Beth and was certainly not raring to know her story. She came across as a whiny, pessimistic, emo, wannabe.So this was a pleasant curve ball for me.This is a girl book. You know, the kind that your boyfriend will never admit to his friends [...]

    25. "There are memories that exist in my mind that are so clear that if I focus on them enough I could practically relive them" -BethWarning:Before starting the book make sure you have a box of tissues lying besides you.When I finished Pushing the Limits and saw that Beth is getting her own story I was beyond surprised to see that Beth isn't getting with Isaiah but someone else!!!I loved Isaiah as much as I loved Noah!!!What a pity!I really wanted to see them togetherNow that I have finished Dare Yo [...]

    26. 4 stars! Katie McGarry sure has teenage angst down pat!I really liked this book despite a few issues that I had with it. For the first few chapters I felt a bit annoyed- I mean, come on! You know we were dying for Beth and Isaiah to have their happy ending! Poor Isaiah I spent a good amount of time mourning my preconceived notion that this book would be about Beth and Isaiah. Then, I was going to slap Katie McGarry for pulling a "She's All That" plot twist if this whole book was going to be abou [...]

    28. “That must be love: when everything else in the world could implode and you wouldn't care as long as you had that one person standing beside you.” Dare You To is a publication I had high prospects for. I unquestioningly FALL FOR Pushing the Limits, and now I can candidly declare that Dare You To did not disappoint.♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥♫♥“I won't let you go."
