SHE’LL MAKE HIM A BET… Lily McIntire is sick of losing every office wager to her overly cocky—and yeah, devilishly handsome—coworker, Marcus Black. After a few too many tequila shots, and a taunt from Marcus that she’s a wuss, Lily lays down a bet he can’t refuse: One night in the abandoned and spooky Willow Mansion alone for his recent office win, a trip to Hawaii.
HE CAN’T REFUSE… There’s only one thing Marcus wants more than his upcoming vacation to Hawaii; it’s to take his sexy coworker on a real date. Every time he’s tried to get close to Lily, she’s shut him down cold. Too bad the sexual tension has hit the boiling point. Now, he’ll have to scare her out of the mansion if he has a prayer of taking her out any time soon.
UNTIL ALL BETS ARE OFF… But in between trying to scare Lily out of her pants and get his hands into them, Marcus realizes there’s more to the mansion than either of them counted on. Suddenly, it’s not just he and Lily that are going “bump in the night”. If they manage to survive the night and escape the mansion unscathed, can they survive each other in the light of day? Or will what happens at Willow Mansion stay at Willow Mansion?
I absolutely loved getting to know Marcus and Lily and watching them slowly but surely come together. It was a nice change of pace to see the man pinning after the girl for so long, versus the girl pinning after the guy. It was a welcoming role reversal. Then throwing in the fun but sweet banter and a thrilling bet, and you get major sparks flying.
This book surprised me in the best way because I was not expecting it to be as much as a thriller as it was. When I think of Entangled’s contemporary line, I usually think sexy fairy tales, with some kind of personal problems thrown in, but with If You Dare, you get a romantically thriller and it was brilliantly done. When the bells jingled from the top of the stairs… I literally got chills. So well done, I actually wanted to pee my pants at one point.
If you’re looking for a quick, sexy, and thrilling read… this is it! Definitely give it a shot!
