In a deliciously sexy twist on the classic game, USA Today bestselling author Mira Lyn Kelly proves that when playing truth or dare—always choose dare.

After her one attempt at commitment ends with the discovery that her fiancé already has a wife and kid, Maggie Lawson vows that the only people she’ll love ’til death do they part will be her friends. Unfortunately that means Maggie letting her bestie rope her into a year-long dating dare: score a new date each month or pay a penalty. Seems doable—until Maggie’s date stands her up, leaving only one option: the sexy stud who just moved in upstairs. The problem? He and Maggie can’t stop fighting—and that’s just the beginning.

His name is Tyler Daniels and the last thing he needs is his neighbor distracting him with her girl-next-door smile and sharp tongue. Tyler’s in Chicago for one reason: to woo back his selfish ex in order to reclaim the child he once thought was his—and that means keeping Maggie out of his bed. A tall order, since Maggie has become a bigger temptation than he ever expected to face. But before they can even consider leaving the past behind, Maggie and Tyler must accept a brand-new dare: real, forever love.

Review

The reason is because it started out great, the story kept building up at a good pace but around 70% in the book took a downfall and, while the ending made up for it, it still bothered me.

Truth Or Dare is an interesting story. I enjoyed reading it a lot, even with its faults. Maggie is a free-spirited woman who, unfortunately got wronged by a guy she was in love with and she swore to never get serious about anyone again. Once Tyler comes in the picture, she can’t help but re-think her decision. Tyler is a great male character that I learned to love but disliked for a while. The reason being he has a secret and instead of putting it in the past and figuring out another solution, he sticks by it, hurting Maggie in the process. And I didn’t like how Maggie just accepted him back without a second thought. I know they love each other but staying accepting him so easily without letting him make an effort to gain her back didn’t sit well with me.

Besides from the faults I mentioned, the story was great. It was slow paced but it fit perfectly with the setting of the story. I am looking forward to Touch & Go, which has the story of Ava and Sam, two characters that the reader gets to meet in Truth Or Dare—two characters that I completely love.
