(Endless Summer)
Monica Murphy
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 22nd 2016
Entangled Teen Crush

Truth or Dare was never this much fun...

Annie McFarland is sick of being a shy nobody. A session at summer camp seems like the perfect opportunity to reinvent herself—gain some confidence, kiss a boy, be whoever she wants to be. A few days in, she’s already set her sights on über-hottie Kyle. Too bad her fear of water keeps her away from the lake, where Kyle is always hanging out. 

Jacob Fazio is at Camp Pine Ridge after one too many screw-ups. Junior counseling seems like punishment enough, but the rigid no-fraternizing-with-campers rules harsh his chill. When a night of Truth or Dare gets him roped into teaching Annie how to swim, she begs him to also teach her how to snag Kyle. 

Late-night swim sessions turn into late-night kissing sessions...but there’s more on the line than just their hearts. If they get caught, Jake’s headed straight to juvie, but Annie’s more than ready to dare him to reveal the truth.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains references to drinking, sexual situations, adult language, and an intense bad boy hero who will melt your heart.

No matter what genre, whether it’s adult, hot and steamy, or mature young adult, sweet and sexy, Monica Murphy always delivers the swoon-worthy romance that I crave. And Murphy’s latest is no exception with this first love, mature young adult novel: Daring the Bad Boy. Annie and Jake’s (Jacob) first love story had me reliving those tingles and goose bumps, remembering the heartfelt feelings of teen love. The best part of Annie and Jake's first love romance is it's also the forever kind of love. When you meet your true soul mate, you just know it. Yep, Monica Murphy always gives me a swoony characters I can fall in love with right alone with the beautiful storyline.

Annie has just completed her sophomore year, and she’s tried of being shy, known as the nerd-girl and teacher’s pet; she hates it, while everyone else is living their lives, having fun and dating. So this summer, she’s going to reinvent herself, and she’s decided the best way to present New Annie is to reveal the new her at Camp Pine Ridge, where nobody knows her. Annie wants to be one of the popular girls, to have the attention of the hot boys. Just for one summer, Annie doesn't want to be nerd-girl.

Jake is at Camp Pine Ridge to save his behind from having to go to juvie. Jake has been screwing up lately and his bad boy attitude has landed him in community service, working as a counselor at Camp Pine Ridge. Jake figures the only thing that might save his reputation of having to spend his summer at camp is there will be plenty of pretty co-counselors with a bad-boy fetish—and Jake is most definitely willing to fulfil their every bad boy fantasy. When Jake arrives at Camp Pine Ridge, the only girl he wants to have a fantasy with is camper Annie McFarland. But, messing around with the campers is forbidden for a camp counselor, and it would also be Jake's one-way ticket to juvie. 

Annie and Jake's forbidden, first love is a melt-your-heart romance for the bad boy, Jake, who can't have the girl of his dreams. Jake decides if he can’t have beautiful Annie, then he will step a side and give Annie to another… Well, let’s just say that the idea was an honorable one, but the reality of seeing Annie with another guy is more than the bad boy in Jake can handle. Daring the Bad Boy is a must read.
