Mini Review: The Date Dare by: Tara Sue Me

Release Date: November 19, 2018
from After Six Publishing Co
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"Who knew three words held such destructive power? No, not THOSE three words. I'm talking about the evil word trio that's my own personal kryptonite, that stole my best friend, and took away the only woman I've ever loved:
I dare you.
I was six when Darcy Patrick moved next door.
By the time we were eight, we were best friends.
At fifteen, I gave a classmate a black eye for calling her names.
At sixteen, she talked me through asking my crush to prom.
I helped her get over her first heartbreak at nineteen.
Two years later, she returned the favor.
It wasn’t until I was twenty-nine I realized I loved her.
And because I was too stupid to do anything about it,
at thirty, I lost her for good on a dare.
Darcy Patrick is tried of watching her best friend, Elliott Taber, date the wrong kind of woman. When his latest flavor of the month walks out on him, she dares him to let her find his next date. Elliott agrees, but only after Darcy agrees to allow him to do the same.
The dare is on.
The dates take place on the same night. One is an epic fail. The other is just plain epic.
Elliott isn’t prepared for the onslaught of emotions hitting him as Darcy seemingly finds everything she ever wanted with the man he set her up with. He should be happy for her. He should leave her alone.
But he can’t.
So he makes one more dare…."

My Thoughts:

This was such a quick and fun read! It’s seriously quick, I think I read it in like an hour and a half, but I loved being about to sit down and just enjoy this story beginning to end. I love the best friends to more trope, so this was extra fun for me. Darcy and Elliot just work so well together and they were so fun. Poor Elliot is clearly head over heels for Darcy and he winds up setting her up with the perfect guy. It’s so not easy for him and you really feel for him. It’s so hard because as a reader you want him to just tell her but you also understand how they don’t want to risk their friendship. And then Darcy is fun too. She clearly loves Elliot, but poor girl doesn’t even realize it herself. It was fun watching these two dance around one another and when they finally stop dancing it’s so great and rewarding. All in all, this is a really fun and sweet read and perfect for romance fans.


  1. this looks like a unique love triangle! I'm not really into romances, but I like the idea of it.

  2. This does sound like a nice quick read. Friends to lovers is a favorite of mine.
