Dare You To Blog Tour: Tour Stop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to my stop of the Dare You To Blog Tour.

Today I’m pleased to bring you the playlist and an extract to go with the scene from this awesome book. Lets start with the blurb. 

If anyone knew the truth about Beth Risk's home life, they'd send her mother to jail and seventeen-year-old Beth who knows where. So she protects her mom at all costs. Until the day her uncle swoops in and forces Beth to choose between her mom's freedom and her own happiness. That's how Beth finds herself living with an aunt who doesn't want her and going to a school that doesn't understand her. At all. Except for the one guy who shouldn't get her, but does.... 

 Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock-with secrets he can't tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn't be less interested in him. 

 But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams-and his life-for the girl he loves, and the girl who won't let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all... 



Excited yet? This Katie McGarry’s second book . The first book Pushing The Limits (read my review here ) made many waves around the YA book circuit and Dare You To, dare I say, is even better. Read my review of Dare You To here. Need more convincing? Below is the playlist and the extract chosen by Katie herself. Check it out.


 

The firelight flickers against Ryan’s tan, giving his face a beautiful bronze glow. Gold shines in his hair. He’s gorgeous. Honestly he is, and he wants me to dance. Could this day get any worse?

 Ryan steps closer and flashes an all-knowing smile that makes him adorable and me weak. I hate him and I hate myself for wanting him to touch me again.

 The music changes from superfast to a bit slower. Its strong beat mimics the frantic pounding in my chest. Ryan rests a hand on my hip and his heat seeps into my skin and creeps into my bloodstream. “Dance with me, Beth.” 

“No.” I’m definitely learning impaired. I whispered the reply. I might as well have screamed yes. Ryan places his other hand on the small of my back and moulds his strong body to mine. I inhale and welcome the scent of warm earth and summer rain. Ryan smells… delicious.

 “This works better if you touch me,” he says.

 I loosely lay my hands on his shoulders. My skin tingles. “I’m only doing this because I owe you.” 

“That’s okay.” On rhythm, Ryan moves his hips from side to side. His hand slides an inch lower and the gentle pressure he exerts on my thigh stirs my body to sway in time with his. Our feet never leave the ground, but, I swear, I’m flying.
