Small-town practical to the soles of her size fives, high school English teacher Jen Casey has one weakness—she’s never been able to resist a dare. Ergo, when her BFF Candy Johnson throws down the triple-dog dare gauntlet, Jen has no choice but to accept the challenge. She e-mails former-classmate-turned-millionaire Brent Maddox, offering advice for the lovelorn.
But, really. Is it her fault Celebrity Magazine published the e-mail instead of forwarding it?
See, that’s the problem with dares in Jen’s experience—they almost always have dire consequences. Like Brent Maddox showing up on her doorstep—tall and golden and sexy as sin—determined to get payback. Like finding herself a reluctant guest at his sprawling Malibu hacienda, sentenced to a week of the same high life she blames for his romantic snafus.
Of course sparks start to fly. She’s only human, and Brent is an unexpectedly endearing hunk and a half. Unfortunately, Jen isn’t built for quick and steamy affairs. She’s been dreaming of that love of a lifetime man, and now she’s falling fast. She can run before it’s too late, or stay and take the biggest gamble of her life. Brent promises nights filled with passion, but will he ever offer his heart?

Vanessa Kings’ Review
5 of 5 stars
This is one of the funniest and sweetest books I’ve read in the last few months. I didn’t know how to feel about Jen at first, she can be great “slapping” material sometimes, but I learned to love her and her crazy attitude.
I loved how the story flows easily and I just couldn´t stop reading.
It is hard to find a book that makes you laugh and cry at the same time, this one definitely is one to keep and re-read.
Another good thing to rescue from this story is that it’s a real Young Adult novel, which means it’s perfect for young girls that want to drop one or two tears before going to sleep 🙂
