Dare You To Blog Tour

Hey guys!

I hope you have enjoyed the Dare You To Blog Tour so far! Don't know what Dare You To is? Well, you better check out Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry, because this is the companion novel and they are books that you definitely DO NOT want to miss.
For those of you who want to read the blurb and see the cover for Dare You To, here you go...
Dare You To (Pushing the Limits, #2)
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...
The cover is pretty hot, isn't it? And - of course - not forgetting the trailer that Mira Ink put together. 
For this tour stop, Katie McGarry has provided an awesome excerpt from the book, but also a song from the Dare You To playlist! Check them both out below.
“Scott told me you had blond hair,” says the woman.
I swallow, but it’s hard to do when my throat tightens. The little girl I used to be, the one with blond hair, died years ago and I hate thinking about her. She was nice. She was happy. She was…not someone I want to remember.
“Why is your hair black?” The lawn ornament at the other end of the kitchen island has officially become annoying.
“What are you exactly?” I ask.
“This is my wife, Allison,” my uncle says.
The Cheerios catch in my throat and I choke. “You’re married?”
“Two years,” says Scott. Ugh. He does that googly-eye thing Noah does with Echo.
I slide another spoonful of Cheerios into my mouth. “When I’m done—” crunch, crunch, crunch “—I’m going home.”
“This is your home now.” Scott has that calm tone again.
“The hell it is.”
Allison’s eyes dart between me and the knives. Yeah, lady, a couple of hours in jail and I’ve moved from destruction of property to sociopath.
“Maybe you should listen to her,” she says.
“Yeah,” I say through more crunches, “maybe you should listen to me. Your wife’s worried I’m going to go all Manson and slit her throat while she sleeps.” I smile at her for effect.
Color drains from her face. At times, I really enjoy being me…
Now, one of the songs from the playlist is Pink's "Don't Let Me Get Me", which is the perfect song for our main character Beth.
I hope you've enjoyed this post and don't forget to look through the tour to find more exciting content!

Have a good week,
Sam :D
