Review: The Dare (The Bet Series Book 3) by Rachel Van Dyken

Print Length: 325 pages
Publisher:Rachel Van Dyken (July 8, 2014)

From 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.


My Rating: 5 stars out of 5

Another crazy, laugh-out-loud hit from Rachel Van Dyken! 
Honestly, I'm beginning to think that Rachel Van Dyken is not human!  She has a way of switching gears so quickly, and turning out another amazing story right on the heels of one from a completely different genre. 
As with each of her novels, all of the characters are completely believable, and she just sucks you into the world she has created and doesn't let go until the very last word. I found myself laughing hysterically at several parts, occasionally earning the odd look from the people around me (I really need to learn not to read Rachel's books whilst out in public)!

It was great to catch up with all of the characters from The Bet & The Wager again (especially good old Grandma Nadine.. seriously no one beats that woman), although now I'm going through a bit of withdrawl and will have to re-read the whole series again! 
Once again, Rachel has created a story that is sure to be an instant hit!
