I Dare You by Ilsa Madden-Mills Review!


Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills returns with an all-new swoon-fest of a novel about what happens when you look beyond labels and take a chance on love.

Badass Athlete: I dare you to…

Delaney Shaw: Who is this?

The late night text is random, but “Badass Athlete” sure seems to know who she is…

Delaney Shaw.

Good girl.

Lover of fluffy kitties and Star Wars.


His dare? Spend one night in his bed—a night he promises will be unforgettable—and she can solve the mystery of who he is.

She knows she shouldn’t, but what else is she going to do with her boring Valentine’s Day? One sexy hook-up later, her mind is blown and the secret’s out.

Maverick Monroe.

Bad boy.

The most talented football player in the country.

Just ask him.

Too bad for him Delaney’s sworn off dating athletes forever after her last heartbreak.

But Maverick wants more than one night and refuses to give up on winning Delaney’s heart. She isn’t one to be fazed by a set of broad shoulders.

Will the bad boy land the nerd girl or will the secrets they keep from each other separate them forever?

I DARE YOU is a full-length stand-alone novel.

My thoughts 💭


This book was so sweet! Delaney and Maverick meet at a bonfire where they share a kiss and Maverick tells Delaney the legend about how you’ll always remember your kiss at the bonfire. He was kind of cocky but a sweetheart and she was sweet, a little nerdy and didn’t take no mess. After a breakup Maverick texts Delaney but won’t tell her his name and they get to know each other a little better even if Delaney suspects its Maverick texting her. They go through a little drama since Mav was keeping secrets but he was only doing it to take care of his sister Raven. I enjoyed reading this book and I definitely recommend it!
