Peek Inside Daring the Bad Boy

A session at summer camp is just what shy Annie McFarland needs to reinvent herself. Too bad her fear of water keeps her away from the lake, and her new crush Kyle. Enter Jacob Fazio—junior counselor, all-around bad boy, and most importantly: lifeguard. 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.

"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." -Debbie, I Heart YA Books

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.

"But this girl…I don’t know. There was something about her that made me want to keep her around. I wanted to talk to her. Learn more about her. Maybe even give her grief in the hope that she’d dish some back out at me.”

Look I'm 30 but this book was just too freaking sweet. I don't really delve into...
