His goal is to go pro after college and he works hard for it. Maverick, a man who keeps his word, has waited so long to finally be with Delaney. Seriously, this one hit every single one of my sweet spots and - in case all this overly excited rambling hasn't been clear enough for you - I enthusiastically recommend it! I would've loved a bit more epilogue or just a bit more of them after the happy end. He has never forgotten her all those years and he wants a chance with her now. Everything else is a sample of some other story by the author. For some reason, text messaging and emails in a story are just my favorite thing in the world as the rapid-fire humor and chemistry was just amazing to watch.
He is a rollercoaster, dangerous and exhilarating; my brain is telling me to jump off and save myself, but my heart yearns to ride it to the end to see if I live or die. At this very party she meets a guy, she doesn't know his name, or anything about him really, but she leaves with her first kiss and knowing exactly who he is. I did like Raven and Ryker a lot more than the main characters though. O que me deixou bem frustrada, pois havia um potencial, principalmente em torno do mocinho, no entanto, não foi devidamente explorado e sim abordado de maneira breve e superficial. Delaney has broken up with her cheating boyfriend and vows to swear off all football players until Maverick starts to show up almost everywhere she goes. A few more pick up lines, a few more text messages back wards and forwards. Then we have Maverick - can you say more than meets the eye.
This romance starts off as a texting relationship and all Delaney knows about him is that he is an athlete, though she has her suspicions. Fair warning the actual story ends at 56%. He knows there is a connection there and he needs to know if she feels it to. Just from reading Ilsa Madden-Mill's dedication page, I knew I was going to love this book! Quite fictional in that sense, hehe. I'm not usually into jock books, tho I did enjoy a bunch of hokey books once upon a time It was a good read.
A former high school English teacher, she adores all things Pride and Prejudice, and of course, Mr. Those messages were from my asshole friend who took my phone and texted you without my knowledge. Overall Pace of Story: Good until the last quarter ish where it felt really rushed. But then Maverick is there to show her that not all football players are are jerks that can't keep it in their pants. Just kinda felt like I was skipping from scene to scene with no depth.
She knew what Maverick was going through and still acted like a defiant little child because she didn't have all of his attention. I rated this 3 stars because for me it was just simple and easy. I've sworn off football for the moment. It is a hopeful story of what it means to learn about honesty and integrity, and about putting family and loved ones above all else. I Dare You is definitely going to be a book that I know I will read time and again. One of them has some home life issues and makes some poor choices. But this one for sure has surpass that opinion.
While Delaney is in the process of mending her heart from her previous heart-break with her cheating ex-boyfriend, Mav is there to comfort her in an unexpected way that I find rather endearing. There are 300 pages and only 170 of them are the actual book. But once I met Delaney and Maverick? When sparks fly, Mav and Del become a couple that is truly worth reading. Thank you neighbours for laughing at me and not helping me search for them lol I admit that the star of the book for me is Delaney. A hundred pages more would have been really good for the story. I was biting my nails and trying to alleviate the churn in my belly while simultaneously trying to figure out what would happen next. I liked both Delaney and Maverick and thought their personalities were the perfect blend.
I'm not usually into jock books, tho I did enjoy a bunch of hokey books once upon a time. And this one was so sweet and funny and sexy and moving. I have a weird, but true love for text messaging as a relationship tool in love stories and I feel like it's done perfectly here. Delaney discovered that her ex- boyfriend cheated on her and that really hurt her. Maverick is true to his name: he is independent, unorthodox, direct and so hard working! So that was kind of a nice surprise. He was caring and compassionate and so completely selfless. They have some good tension, chemistry, and scenes -- but not so much it takes away from the story.
He plays football and he should help the team win everything. It went a little deeper than I was expecting it to and it just made me love it all the more. It was kind of middle of the road for me, not wow and not bad. When their lips meet, the experience. It might be years later, and still their face is the one you dream about.
