Who here doesn’t love a good rom-com? I could watch rom-coms all day every day! I love to laugh and I love romance so the comb is a win-win for me. When it comes to my reading tastes, it’s damn near impossible to pass on a rom-com! Korean author Jayci Lee has written a number of romance novels and last year she wrote a charming rom-com called A Sweet Mess and this book right here is the follow up to that fun read! The Sweet Mess series seemed to be the novel she really wanted to write. I haven’t read her other books but this one seemed like it was the book she was most looking forward to writing.
When I saw she has a follow up coming out, I was really looking forward to it. Of course my summer reading calendar filled up super quick so today I am featuring this follow up novel, The Dating Dare, today but I have it on my calendar to read later this fall. I know that most romance novels read as stand alones and I have no reason to think differently when it comes to this novel. In fact many reviewers commented on how it was easily a stand alone book but I think Jayci Lee is a talented writer who writes funny and charming romances so I would certainly read her other books as well as the first book in this series!
If you are looking for a rom-com to round out your summer reading then I think this one will be your jam! Modern, sexy, funny, and of course romantic all wrapped up in one charming rom-com book! Keep reading to get all the details and be sure to snag yourself a copy for your night stand or your beach bag!
Jayci Lee, author of A Sweet Mess, returns with The Dating Dare—her next witty, chemistry-filled romantic comedy.
Tara Park doesn’t do serious relationships. Neither does she hop into bed with virtual strangers. Especially when that particular stranger is her best friend’s new brother-in-law. It isn’t an easy decision, though. Seth Kim is temptation personified. His unreasonably handsome looks and charming personality makes him easy on the eyes and good for her ego.
When a friendly game of Truth or Dare leads to an uncomplicated four-date arrangement with Seth, Tara can’t say she minds. But their dates, while sweet and sexy, have a tendency to hit roadblocks. Thankfully, their non-dates and chance meetings get frequent and heated.
Seth is leaving for a new job in Paris in a month and a no-strings attached fling seemed like a nice little distraction for both… But soon Seth realizes that Tara Park doesn’t come in a “nice & little” package–she’s funny and bold, sweet and sexy, and everything he ever wanted and never expected to find. Neither of them are ready for something serious and both have past relationship baggage they’ve been ignoring, but with a shot at forever on the line will they follow their hearts and take a chance on happily-ever-after?
