The Dare (First Love Series #5)
Author: Cate Sexton

Rating: 1.5/5
Litzy Graham is eighteen. She has earned everything she has, including her recently accepted application to the medical faculty in Harvard University. Now, she also feels she deserves to do what other students have been long able to do, indulge in a wild holiday abroad. Her foster care has finished, so Litzy is free to do what she wants. 
Saving and making money came naturally to Litzy, who even though she was in foster care since she was four was always good with money. She saved every penny she ever got spare, and she earned the rest. She now had enough for at least two years of college if she is thrifty. 
But for now, Litzy was going to have one hell of a holiday in Hawaii with the girls she met in the pre-med program for Harvard as one of them won 135 million dollars in the State lottery and is bringing them all with her. The girls are fun-loving and a lot more relaxed than Litzy when it comes to men, who she is shy around. 
So, Macy, the girl who won the lottery, dares Litzy to ask out the next guy she meets and sleep with him while they are there, for a prize of one million dollars. 

But what if the dare gets Litzy more than she’s bargained for? 

Alright, so I'm going to start by saying, if you haven't read the rest of my reviews on this series, check them out first. It'll give you more insight into my opinions on this series. This is also the last review I'll be writing because I won't be picking up any more copies of the series to read. I've just been too disappointed in it, I can't find it in myself it keep reading them.

So this novel revolves around two characters that met sort of by chance. This story-line really did have me intrigued and it SO had the potential to be this amazing story if it was made into a larger book. I felt like it just dropped the ball to be made into a "quick read" and it didn't give the characters much.

Like how many people really think that they see a person and think about the rest of their lives with them when they have never really had any sort of relationship beforehand? There were definitely awkward moments and mistakes in the book like the rest. I just wished it had more care put into the book because it could have actually been great!

I felt like the characters we part too young for what was happening, but also at the same time, you see how much they really need to develop more into the novel that just didn't happen.

Overall this wasn't my favourite read. It had some moments where it pulled at me, but there was just too much awkwardness, I couldn't get past it.

So until the next time, Keep Reading!
Your Graduated Bookworm!! :)
