Dare You To
I guess we all knew in our heart of hearts even though we won't admit it that Beth was going to fall for Ryan. As soon as I saw the description for this book I knew.
I tried to cling to a shred of hope. I knew there and then poor Isaiah didn't stand a chance.
Frequently bought together
I kinda feel done over. Like I as made to fall in love with Isaiah in PTL only for me to feel pained by his pain, I wanted to comfort him and tell him he deserved someone better than Beth. We were led to believe that they were undeniably in love with each other in PTL only for it to emerge that Beth in fact thought nothing more about him than her close best friend. I nearly died when Isaiah told her he loved her only for Beth to say I love you too I could almost feel him shut down.
And then when in the beginning he saved her from Trent who makes Beth and her mother his own personal punch bag only for him to say I'm doing it because I love you and she tells him she hates him.
Oh GOD Beth could you be even a any more considerate? When your in pain Isaiah is in pain.
Review | Dare You To by Katie McGarry
Don't you get it? Beth doesn't make it easy to like her.
Even though in the end I kinda did, it took me a while to forgive her. You'll see when you read the book. In PTL I liked her and gave her the benefit of the doubt because she too was going through a hard time and all she had was Noah and Isaiah and I thought if these two amazing guys liked her then she must be OK.
Overall I did very much enjoy this. Let yourself be held. Open your heart. Face your fear. Kiss the man you are falling for.
That weakness in the fortress of her heart will change her life forever. One person can not shoulder the troubles of others alone. But will she ultimately realize that Ryan's love, the love of her friends, old and new, and the love of her estranged uncle, will make her stronger than she ever thought possible?
After reading the stunningly touching first novel, Pushing the Limits, I was thrilled to be able to read 'Dare You To'. This is another powerful story that will reach into the depths of your heart, and have you begging Beth to say 'CAN'.
It's not perfect and it's messy as hell. And it's exactly what I need.
Those things that exist in the dark corners of our minds that terrify us beyond belief. Pushing the Limits caught me by surprise last year heck, it even made me cry , placing McGarry firmly and surely the auto-download list.
With Dare You To promising an equally powerful story, I couldn't not read it. Ryan Stone and Beth Risk are almost polar opposites - a focused, career-driven boy and a troubled, hard-bitten girl. Ryan has opportunities and dreams, whereas Beth refuses to even chance the illusion of dreams.
The two meet - and you know how this book ends. It is not exactly teeming with originality and the book description is transparent enough to predict the outcome. But it is the journey that is important here - the slow transition from the Beth Risk we meet at the start to the Beth Risk we depart with at the end. It is about the Ryan Stone that is instantly labelled the 'golden boy' and the Ryan Stone that worries about the hidden cracks in his family.
It is about two teenagers who inadvertently become each other's supports, who reluctantly play a game, and who dare to find reason to hope for better. The two characters are likeable - very likeable, in fact - though Beth takes a fraction longer to warm to.
This, I suppose, is expected. Her unsettled past with her mother leaves her in an emotional position no teenager should have to be in. She is covered in spikes, ready to expect and accept the worst, ready to withdraw within herself when needed, and ready to lash out without restraint. Trust is not something that comes easily to Beth, and this is reflected in her narrative.
People who make me feel are worse. I take comfort in the stone inside of me. If I don't feel, I don't hurt. With a controlling father that refuses to believe in anything other than baseball, Ryan is a lot less free than most people assume. His problems might seem shades away from Beth's, yet there is never a moment when Ryan's situation feels any less important.
There is angst, yes, and maybe even a little drama, but McGarry makes it work perfectly for her characters and their combined and separate stories. It helps it helps a lot that the romantic tension in this book is wonderfully handled, with plenty of chemistry-filled scenes to satisfy. Beth was irritatingly prejudicial, unfairly harsh, and incredibly hostile in Pushing the Limits.
I know. But I did. I think a lot of my love for this story originated in Ryan.
Noah, Beth, Echo, and Isaiah are characters with sharp edges. Loving them requires a little more effort, peeling back their tough facade takes a little more work.
And his determination to win Beth over was kinda… adorable.I tried to cling to a shred of hope. Beth looks hard, and there is no way that Ryan will get her phone number. Kiss the man you are falling for.
As mentioned earlier, I loved McGarry's debut, and you should definitely check it out if you enjoy this one. Except Beth doesn't want rescuing, and only goes with her uncle to keep him from exposing her mother.
He sees the worth she hides. She feels unloveable and finds it hard to trust. This is the main reason I loved Pushing the Limits so much, because the characters were so real and had so much character to them.
