The Dare (The Bet #3) by Rachel Van Dyken Blog Tour - #review, #giveaway & #excerpt
The Dare:

From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken, comes the third and final book in the New York Time's Bestselling Bet Series...

Boring Beth Lynn has always lived up to her nickname... until she wakes up in a hotel bed next to a sexy as sin state senator she re-connected with at a wedding the previous night.

The biggest problem? She can't seem to remember anything about the night before except for crying into a box of cookies, and she's pretty sure Grandma Nadine slipped something in her drink. And what should have been a one night stand turns into a six day adventure when Grandma whisks them off to Hawaii to save them from the ensuing media firestorm.

Jace isn't looking for commitment -- he believes he made that clear when he left the wedding with Beth. Then again, he can't remember much of anything other than the way her skin felt beneath his hands. Now he's stuck with her at some lame couple's retreat and trying his hardest to fight the attraction only a woman like Beth could invoke.

He doesn't think it can get any worse.

But one spider attack... A donkey ride from hell... And an unfortunate episode with Viagra tea -- and there's one thing Jace knows for sure: He should never have agreed to Grandma Nadine's suggestion in the first place.

Because if this isn't paradise, and it isn't a vacation -- that only leaves one option.


But to make it through alive... they might lose their hearts in the process.

Barnes & Noble:


My hand trembled just slightly as I squeezed Beth’s shoulder. “And I’ve been on vegetable strike since the fourth grade.”
“A rebel.”
“Oh yes. Every time my mom put carrots in my lunchbox, I swapped them with the girl sitting next to me. Cheetos and carrots? Same color. It helped that she was legally blind in one eye, plus she had a crush on me. I’d send her to get milk. She’d come back, and the Cheetos would be gone, leaving her with carrots. I lied for two years, Beth, I’m not proud of what I did. But sometimes a man has to do things, ugly things, to get what he wants.”
“You stole Cheetos from a blind girl. How does that not make the news and me walking with you into a hotel does?”
“Easy.” I grinned. “You’re prettier.”

Part 3 in a series but can be read as a stand alone but to get the full picture and all of Grandma Nadine then it is recommended to read the whole series.

My The Dare Review ...
Well two things off the top are 1) I effin' love Rachel Van Dyken and 2) OMG Grandma Nadine is a riot.  My favorite part of the series is her hands down. 
This is book three in the series where we find out what Grandma Nadine has in store for stick in the mud Jace and book nerd quite Beth. 
After Jace & Beth's 'one night stand' they are forced to get away from the paparazzi and reluctantly agree to Grandma Nadine's suggestion only to find themselves at a couples resort where their therapist also happens to be grandma (what a hoot!)

The shenanigans that grandma makes everybody do are hilarious but her intent is right,  just her methods are extreme even though she's always right in the end. 

Jace has been burnt in the past from his 'what if' and his money grabbing fiance so when Beth returns to his life he chooses his profession over love because it is easier than losing his heart.

Beth doesn't want to end up the cat lady even though that is where she is headed but what she does want is her fairytale.  But real life doesn't always end up that way. 

 With the help of the whole Titus clan and many others Jace and Beth are forced to deal with their feelings and to see if this relationship is worth the risk.

I LOVE this series so much.  I felt like this one wasn't as funny as the others but it was still pretty damn funny.  This series is just something you have to experience on your own. 

4 I do Dare Thumbs up!
