If this book doesn't have you laughing out loud I don't know what will! Jen Casey who is now a high school English teacher in the same school she went to-she loves poetry and literature-she was even the president of the poetry club in high school. She really is a small town girl who is waiting for Mr. Right before she gets involved. Her friend--the phys ed teacher is just about her opposite. She should have kept her mouth shut when she saw that a boy she went to high school with but whose family had come into money was really living it up. Now here is this woman--knows little to nothing about men but thinks she can tell him a thing or two? Her friend gets her to email Celebrity news--on a dare. You see Jen has one little bitsy flaw--she can not resist a dare!! Instead of forwarding the email--Celebrity publishes it!!! That's when the fun begins.

I can't tell you anymore or I will give it up-and we all know I won't do that!! To find out what happens you will just have to pick up this book and read it. And for those of you wondering--yes, I think it would be fine for teens to read this one-after you have read it of course. By the way have some tissues ready at the end--you will need them!


“Whoever said a kiss is just a kiss never locked lips with Brent Maddox.”

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?

About the Author
Award-winning author Kathy DiSanto wrote her first novel in 1997. That year, she published two romances with Bantam’s Loveswept line. One of them, For Love or Money, won a 1997 Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice Award. 

In 2012, Kathy self-published two futuristic thrillers. Amanda’s Eyes is a near-future paranormal thriller and the first novel in a series featuring crime reporter A.J. Gregson. Why Live? is stand-alone dystopian science-fiction. 

Current projects include the sequel to Amanda's Eyes, remixes of her two romance novels, and posts to her blogs Write Minded (on the writing life) and Momma D's Diary (a humorous look at aging and retirement).

As a communications specialist with a major university, Kathy wrote more than one hundred features for print and the web. Now retired and writing full-time, she enjoys meditation; reading; live performances by her sons (both professional musicians); brisk walks with her rescue dogs, Molly and Lucy; and playing handy gal around her 92-year-old, 4-square home in Martinsburg, WV.

I can't even think of the funniest dare. I guess it would have to go back to middle school when my friend dared me to call a boy I liked. That was easier then because there was no caller ID...LOL!

Mandie Stevens said...

This book looks perfect for me but if I hadn't read the description I wouldn't have had a clue fromt the cover. I LOVE the cover but it looks like something action packed with a cop lol not a funny romance which I LOVE!!

Megan Elford {WelcomeToTheZoo} said...

What a fun plot line! I bet this book would make a great movie too. I'm dying to know how it plays out!

Christy Maurer said...

That sounds hilarious! I have no clue about past dares. I am sure we played truth or dare when I was a kid but I can't remember any good ones.

Most dares had to do with drinking. I don't like to drink ,so I was the driver to and from parties. But my friends liked to do dares more then me. Maybe I missed out, but they had the a hangover the next day. ;-)

Not sure about funniest, but my most memorable dare was to kiss this boy. I was in middle school and it was my first kiss. I remember it feeling really slimy and afterwards I pulled back and said, "ewww." Poor kid. Lol.

It was prom and my friends dared me to slide across the floor, headfirst of course, after the boys. Yes, I did it. And yes, my dress stayed on.
