Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills kicks off a brand-new, sexy, heartfelt contemporary romance series with I DARE YOU!

Badass Athlete: I dare you to…
Delaney Shaw: Who is this?

The late night text is random, but "Badass Athlete" sure seems to know who she is…

Delaney Shaw. 
Good girl.
Lover of fluffy kitties and Star Wars. 
Curious.

His dare? Spend one night in his bed—a night he promises will be unforgettable—and she can solve the mystery of who he is. 

She knows she shouldn't, but what else is she going to do with her boring Valentine's Day?

One sexy hook-up later, her mind is blown and the secret's out.

Maverick Monroe.
Bad boy.
The most talented football player in the country.
Just ask him.

Too bad for him Delaney's sworn off dating athletes forever after her last heartbreak.

But Maverick wants more than one night and refuses to give up on winning Delaney’s heart. She isn’t one to be fazed by a set of broad shoulders. 

Will the bad boy land the nerd girl or will the secrets they keep from each other separate them forever?

Ivy's $0.02:

Ilsa does it again! She never fails when it comes to the bad boy badass. If you love sports romance this book is for you!

Maverick and Delaney’s story has everything from humor, balance of heart-warmth and angst and overall ease of a read.

I loved this freakin' book! It was perfect, the nerdy girl and cocky football player. These characters capture your attention with Delaney’s awkwardness and Maverick’s cockiness. It had enough angst to keep you captivated; it wasn’t rushed. 

Delaney is a definitely an interesting girl. She is a donut-loving, fashionista and cat-loving awesome chick! Delaney has no interest in the hot football player. Especially after seeing how popular he is with the female population at school. 

Maverick is as cocky and sexy as they get but also considerate and caring. He will win your heart over and over again throughout the book. He won’t give up on something he wants and he wants Delaney. Maverick will stop at nothing to get her and if a dare will get him the girl then she better be ready for him.
