Do you ever read about two characters and their relationship is a crazy rollercoaster of emotions, and you just can’t be okay with the choices they make in said relationship? Well that is how I feel about the Pushing the Limits series by Katie McGarry. Dare You To is the second in the series. At least McGarry is honest about the whole limits being pushed in the series. The whole point of these stories is to point out that there is someone out there who might not be like you but will love you until the end of time. I don’t know if I agree with that point, seeing as the characters have barely lived. Granted the characters suffer some really hard times like abandonment and mental disorders in the family (which can harm), but still I fell too young for this kind of emotionally volatile behavior. Am I wrong here? I don’t know.
Dare You To dealt with abandonment issues and the whole child being the parent syndrome. Beth is the female MC, who is best friends with Noah, the male MC from book #1. She’s tough as nails, does drugs and takes care of her alcoholic mother, who has an abusive boyfriend. On the other side of the coin there is Ryan, the male MC. He comes from the wealthy side of town and has a bright future in baseball ahead of him. Ryan is dealing with abandonment issues as well. Together they learn to trust and love someone else, in light of all the bad relationships with friends, family members and significant others. There is too much that happens in this book to summarize it in this review. The story is likable and some might down right love it, but what is certain is that there will not be a dull moment in store for you.
3/5 stars. Thank you Net Galley
