Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains references to drinking, sexual situations, adult language, and an intense bad boy hero who will melt your heart.
Annie McFarland is sick of being a shy nobody. A session at summer camp seems like the perfect opportunity to reinvent herself—gain some confidence, kiss a boy, be whoever she wants to be. A few days in, she’s already set her sights on über-hottie Kyle. Too bad her fear of water keeps her away from the lake, where Kyle is always hanging out.
Jacob Fazio is at Camp Pine Ridge after one too many screw-ups. Junior counseling seems like punishment enough, but the rigid no-fraternizing-with-campers rules harsh his chill. When a night of Truth or Dare gets him roped into teaching Annie how to swim, she begs him to also teach her how to snag Kyle.
Late-night swim sessions turn into late-night kissing sessions…but there’s more on the line than just their hearts. If they get caught, Jake’s headed straight to juvie, but Annie’s more than ready to dare him to reveal the truth.
Daring the Bad Boy is everything a YA romance should be–sweet, funny, romantic and a little angsty. A fabulous YA read!
Annie is shy and a little awkward. Jacob is a bad boy. They are total opposites. So, when they cross paths at summer camp, Jacob as a counselor and Annie as a camper, forbidden sparks fly. The camp has a strict rule about campers and counselors getting involved. It’s especially important that Jake tow the line since his uncle owns the camp and if he screws up, his uncle will tell his dad and Jake will head straight to juvie, don’t pass go, don’t collect $200 dollars. But is the risk worth the reward?
I loved Jacob! He is the penultimate teenage bad boy with a heart. Annie brings out the best in him and him in her.
I haven’t read a YA book in a while, but some of my favorite books are from the YA genre. This sweet, funny romance just rocketed its way up into my top 10 YA books of all time. Monica Murphy solidifies herself in yet another genre.
Do NOT pass this one up!
