The book begins where the first book ends - and the truth is, it has been so long that I have almost completely forgotten what it about ... 🙈
But after reading my previous review, like the first one, this prologue also starts with a big BANG: Maddox is desperate and Lila is heartbroken - but what happened between them that led to this situation...? 💥💥💥

I'm giving 3.75⭐ for this one...
I really liked the friendship and how things evolve between Maddox and Lila.
They always share a deep connection and I was cheering for them since book one... But then they surrender to their libido and ruined their friendship?
It's a lot of unnecessary drama between them and I won't even start with all the trust issues and lies.
I looooved how good they were together, and I hated that Lila just walk away when Maddox needed most.

Uh let me tell you... the wait? It was worth it!

Maddox and Lila are a wild freaking ride!! They're fun, filthy and so angsty! I Dare You is perfection!

Maddox Coulter is on another level of hotness man. I hadn't read a hero like him in a while. He's so filthy and delicious. My my. Lila is one lucky lady.

There were some questionable decisions these two made that well felt pretty stupid but it all added to the angst factor and y'all know how much I love my angst. But for real..
Anne OK

The first installment was terrific and the beginning of what I thought was going to be a great duet. It left readers hanging from a cliff begging for a hand-out. But, as so often happens, the second installment fizzled and left me totally bummed.

Heads-up – it’s recommended that you read the first book so you’ll get acquainted with the characters in the early stages of their relationship. While the first part of the duet was more of a slow burn build from friendship, this one explodes H-O-T-to-t

I don't know... I'm just meh about the book. This could very well be the case of "It's not you, it's me" since I am definitely in the minority but you never know.
While I did finish the book in under a day, I wasn't bursting at the seams trying to find out what was going on. Additionally, the climax fell a bit flat for me. All of this angst and secrets piling up and then poof it all comes down. It also kinda doesn't help when everything is right in front of me and I could guess what was

Hmmmm… I am slightly confused about how to go about this book.
On one hand, I admit that I Dare You is HOT. The “you have no idea how hot their chemistry by me just saying it out loud…you have to read it!”
There is also a part of me that is completely swept off my feet by Maddox and Lyla’s love story….Swoon worthy.
BUT! BUT! BUT! There is also a part of me that acknowledges the fact that I felt a little let down. The drama at times felt a tad dramatic and convenient (like the story of Ma

I couldn't wish for a better end for this beautiful and tormented story.
I loved every single page of this book.
I wasn't able to put it down until I find out what was gonna happen .
After some pretty big bombs were dropped ,and after some heart broken plot twists I didn't know how their relationship was going to survive .

But at the end I'm always sure of one think:
if they're meant to be they'll find their way back to each other...

I Dare You (Truth and Dare Duet #2) by Lylah James conclude its run in the most aching way. Kicking things off from Book 1, it takes off right where it ended with Maddox confronting Lila after a night of thorough fucking and daring her to Stay! This story felt like a game of TRUTH AND DARE & LOVE to me. Between friends, who are as stubborn as Ox. Bull heads, both of them.

I impatiently waited for the conclusion of the Truth and Dare Duet and I Dare You didn't disappoint in the least. The wait was totally worth it! Lylah James penned an intense sequel to Do You Dare? packed with all feels that had me utterly captivated!

In the first novel, I adored Lila and Maddox’s magical relationship. Their friendship with a palpable underlying attraction was powerful and entertaining and the slow burn romance was killing me. In this second book,

What’s this book about? (I'm trying to give as little spoilers as possible)
Maddox and Lila finally get there, to the point they’ve been after for so long. But he’s not telling Lila everything and that might be the thing that breaks them.

Utterly brilliant.

So, while the first book was a slow burn, this certainly wasn't. There was plenty of heat, and lots of angst which is exactly how I like it. Maddox was endearingly scuffed and ripped around the edges, and Lila is the perfect antidote for him... before it all goes horribly wrong.

Then all of my questions were finally answered as we learn a bit of backstory to Maddox's upbringing. The author kept me guessing on that one until right the very end.

All in all, a brilliant series!

I Dare You is book 2 and the finale in the Truth and Dare Duet, and it's a rollercoaster ride of ANGST. I can't believe it's over. I'm at a loss for words on how I'm feeling right now. I'm happy but I'm not. It's just this deep feeling of dissatisfaction in my gut because I didn't want to leave the world of Maddox Coulter and Lila Garcia. If I could stay in their world forever, I would. I hate endings as much as I love them because I always have trouble separating myself. It leaves me satisfied ...more

Holy Maddox! Where can I find me one?!?!

We’ve been waiting a little for the conclusion, but Lylah does not disappoint in the story she brings. The all-consuming love and passion completely takes over and I was totally swept away in it.

I Dare You by Lylah James was incredible beyond my wildest imagination. This is sexy, sinful and downright dirty that gave me shivers and goosebumps. This is intensely emotional and brilliantly heartbreaking. My heart is wrecked and my soul is glowing from this mindblowing enemies to best friends to lovers romance.

Lila Garcia protected her heart and resisted her best friend Maddox Coulter as much as possible. The ahole badboy alpha and notorious playboy has broken his walls only to let Lila in.

SO....... as you can see here →Do You Dare?, I didn't like the first book in this duet, and it took me six months and a great desire and need to read something painful and heartbreaking to finally read the second installment AND NOW I REALLY REGRET NOT HAVING DONE IT EARLIER, there you have it.

I just wanted to give this author that everyone seems to love a second chance and her mafia series was too long so I settle for finishing this, and it's like Lylah James knows exactly the kind of heartache

Book2 in Truth And Dare duet - not teenagers anymore, they had fallen too deep and there's no way going back. Their happily ever after won't come easy. From friends to lovers they will shake their relationship just because they are stubbornly in love and in their desire to do the best for the other they are actually doing harm to themselves and their relationship.

„This was our mad, mad love. Ugly and beautiful. Desperate and passionate.”

I have waited a long time for this conclusion. Lylah rocked my world with Do You Dare and I couldn't wait for the continuation of Maddox and Lila's turbulent story. And I Dare You turned out to be worth every miserable minute of waiting! This book is simply brilliant. I devoured every angsty chapter like my life depended on it. I could feel my heart pounding in my chest and every twist and turn deprived me of breath.
4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars! Very well done duet. I’m happy Lila and Maddox found their happy ever after together.

I was given an advance readers copy of this book and have decided to write a voluntary honest review. I don't know where to start with I Dare you. Ok first I'll say I wanted a long time to read the conclusion and wait was definitely worth it. Maddox and Lyla have this connection and this need to protect each other. But that isn't always good because it can lead to secrets and lies and they were full of them. But I also think you have to put in the work and not give up. ...more

Because for her… I was a fucking weak man. Love made me weak.

I’ve been anxiously waiting the second book in this duet and Lylah James did not let me down.

I found the start a little slow but once the book picked up I couldn’t put it down because I needed to see Lila and Maddox get their HEA!

This is a love story that is complicated, passionate and possessive. It will make you feel and leave you emotional.

Go and read this duet... I dare you!

“This isn’t the movies. Or a romance book. It’s real, and it’s going to hurt.”

I Dare You, the conclusion to the Truth and Dare duet by Lylah James, is hot. It starts hot, and it stays hot, with both the steam scenes and the heightened emotions. And that quote above from the book? It pretty much sums it up. It’s emotional, it’s angsty af, it’s hot as hell, and I loved it.

The characters are the same sassy, sexy, and stubborn people I fell for in book one. Lila and Maddox both are full of fire and

“This isn’t the movies. Or a romance book. It’s real, and it’s going to hurt. You see, love will become boring, after you’ve been together for years. Every relationship will hit that phase, where the ‘spark’ is gone for a brief moment in time. And that’s where most love stories perish, or where few love stories flourish. It’s exactly, in that moment, where you’re supposed to fight harder. Love isn’t just a feeling. It’s a commitment. You don’t quit when it’s no longer fun. You don’t turn your back on it when it gets ugly. No, love is everything messy and everything beautiful. You fight. You love. You live. And that’s exactly what Brad showed me,” 4 likes
