➳A college romance filled with broken down emotions that will drag you with want, and need for Maverick and Delaney in this highly anticipated release that did not disappoint...
➳When it comes down to college romances, Ilsa Madden-Mills has out-done herself in this highly anticipated novel, in which I have devoured instantly and I do not feel any shame about it. Maverick, a man who keeps his word, has waited so long to finally be with Delaney. 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. Being the captain of the football team, and having the sights of all NFL scouts on him, he needs to do everything he can to make it into the big leagues for the sake of his sister, and soon to find out, for the sake of having a future with Delaney.
➳Delaney, junior college student trying to live her life and focus on her future without any distractions, she ends up encountering upon Maverick in a very strong way that has never let her forget their first time together at a freshmen party. To her, after being in a cheating relationship with a football player, she decides to not be with another one ever again. Maverick has of course consider this as a challenge, one that he will not back down from making him determined to show Delaney that he is not some "spoiled, bratty, jock" that everyone stereotypes him as. He has gone through the worst that life has given him, and is trying to move on from the past and start a better future for himself and his family. When sparks fly, Mav and Del become a couple that is truly worth reading.
➳Tables are turned when an unexpected surprise is revealed in which features Maverick. His whole idea of creating a better future for his sister and Delaney brings him to a situation where HIS football career would be in danger. As time passes, Maverick soon realizes that Raven, his sister, and Delaney are far more important than any of the actions he is causing towards himself. I found this rather romantic in a sense that Delaney is a strong individual who fights for him and Raven. Ilsa wrote this romance novel, one that I am HONESTLY surprised to love as her previous novels have not been my favorites. But this one for sure has surpass that opinion.

*****FOUR STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}
I DARE YOU had the key elements that I love about sports romances-- a sexy and cocky Hero with brains and wit, and a sweet & silly Heroine. I really enjoyed this one and am looking forward to what’s to come in this new series.
Delaney Shaw may be considered a nerd with her passion for the movies “Star Wars” and “The Princess Bride” and her eclectic wardrobe, but early in her freshman year at Waylon University, she catches the eye of the most popular football player, Maverick Monroe. Their paths cross briefly at a frat party which ended with a brief but toe-curling kiss. Unfortunately, two years will go by before they get their chance to be together.
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. He’s had a huge crush on her for quite a while and now that she’s no longer dating one of his teammates, he is not wasting this long-awaited opportunity.
Things heat up between the two pretty quick and it scares Delaney because she knows that her heart has gotten completely wrapped up in Maverick and that he very well could break it far worse than any previous boyfriend has in the past. Maverick isn’t the carefree jock that everyone has him pegged for. He has the weight of the world on his shoulders when it comes to his family and he’s forced to put his college and football career on the line to care for his disabled sister. Will the secret that he’s keeping from Delaney cause him to lose it all?
Here are my overall ratings
Hero: 5
Heroine: 4.5
Plot: 4
Angst: 4
Steam: 4.5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

MY REVIEW can also be found on my blog:
I DARE YOU: This is the first instalment in Ilsa Madden-Mills ‘The Hook Up’ Series. It’s spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives.’ In this we meet nerdy girl Delaney Shaw and football star Maverick Monroe.
“Legend says the first person you kiss at the party is the one you’ll never forget. It might be years later, and still their face is the one you dream about.”
Straight away I’m pulled into the story of the first time these two met and I was hooked..
On Delaney's freshman year at Waylon University, out of her element at a bonfire party where all the greek gods and jocks seemed to be, she's completely out of her element but she's trying to push herself to enjoy new things.
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.
“He kisses me, an almost imperceptible touch as he brushes his full lips against mine. The contact of our mouths is electric, sparks of fire skating along my skin.”... It would be exactly two years before she ever got to kiss him again.
She started dating a football player named Alex, Maverick never forgot her, since the bonfire night he'd always had a wee bit of a crush on her, but she was with his team mate now and he'd missed his chance.
Now we see Delaney recovering from a shattered heart after she walked in on her boyfriend cheating on her, and from this point onwards she's sworn off jocks indefinitely. She's placed them all in the cheaters basket.
Sitting at home on valentines day her only company her cat Han Solo, a bottle of vodka, popcorn and a horror movie she gets a text from an unknown number.
Hey, sexy. I'm glad I have a library card because I was checking you out today. Do you have a Band-Aid? Because I scraped my knee falling for you.
A few more pick up lines, a few more text messages back wards and forwards.
Hey, look, I'm sorry. This isn't the person with the horrible pick up lines and offer of sex who first texted you. Those messages were from my asshole friend who took my phone and texted you without my knowledge. I have it back now so we're cool right?
So who are you?
I'm a badass athlete
So you play a sport here at Waylon?
Which sport? I've sworn off football for the moment.
Lets keep that a secret, but if you need a name, you can call me He-Man.
She has no idea who the guy is that she's texting, but at the same time when this is occurring Maverick seems to show up at the same time. Put two and two together and now that Delaney is single Maverick is going to finally make her his.
“You're the one that got away, Delaney, the opportunity I missed.”
Mavericks not your normal jock, he's got real life problems on his shoulders which he has to break a few rules to sort out. The only person who knew what he was up to was his room mate, a secret neither could afford to let out.
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.
I am so glad I one clicked this back on release day, gladder still that I found time to read it,I devoured this, a slow burn that had me in it's hooks. It did take me a while to get into, the title is a wee bit misleading (I thought we'd see more dares) but other than those minor details I ended up really enjoying this and can not wait to read the next book.

2.5 Stars
Overall Opinion: I'm really bummed with the last quarter of this. I felt like we barely tapped into these characters and they (especially the H) had so much going on that we only briefly addressed (if that) by the end. The book seemed to hit the fast-forward button and then just stop. I don't get why we couldn't experience those things that got skipped over -- especially their last year of college! I think it would've benefited the story SO much. It ended at 56% on my kindle app, and those of you that follow my reviews know that I HATE THAT!! When I was looking into this book I couldn't find a page count, so it's my bad for still giving it a shot. I know my preferences, and I know that I don't personally enjoy short books. I also know that lots of my fellow readers don't mind and actually enjoy the shorter books -- so, hey! This one might work well for you 😘
Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Delaney and Maverick's story. They meet and kiss at a bonfire freshman year, but reunite junior year when Delaney has broken up with her boyfriend. Delaney is receiving random texts by some guy and has dubbed as "He-man" and she is having some fun encounters with Maverick in her class. She secretly hopes that they are one in the same but isn't sure. Maverick has some family drama going on and is stretched too thin, but he had been waiting for years for Delaney to be single and isn't going to let the opportunity to pursue her slip away. There are some big secrets, some sexy times, some funny and cute moments...and they get a HFN ending.
POV: This alternated between Delaney and Maverick's POV.
Overall Pace of Story: Good until the last quarter ish where it felt really rushed. I never skimmed and I thought it flowed well otherwise.
Instalove: No, they take a while to develop stronger feelings.
H rating: 3.5 stars. Maverick. I liked him, but I did want him to communicate better with the h.
h rating: 4 stars. Delaney. I liked her. She was a lovable nerd.
Sadness level: Low, no tissues needed
Push/Pull: Yes [spoilers removed]
Heat level: Good. They have some good tension, chemistry, and scenes -- but not so much it takes away from the story.
Descriptive sex: Yes
OW/OM drama: Yes, but not in the usual way [spoilers removed]
Sex scene with OW or OM: No
Cheating: No
Separation: Yes [spoilers removed]
Possible Triggers: Yes [spoilers removed]
Closure: This had not nearly enough closure for me and what felt like an abrupt ending. I would call this a HFN ending [spoilers removed].
Safety: This one should be Safe for most safety gang readers
[spoilers removed]

OK, first of all - the blurb is weird. That is not really what happens. They met two years ago at a bonfire. Kissed for a second and then he disappeared back into the crowd. And Delaney got together with her now cheating ex. Maverick never forgot her, but she was with his teammate Alex. But now all bets are off. He wants her! And he starts by sending texts. She doesn't know who is behind those texts for half the book. But Maverick shows up in her life all the time too!
It's adorable!
They would be perfect together - both have had hard moments in their lives. Maverick still has to fight hard for things to be ok in his personal and professional life.
And of course poor Delaney swore off football players!
But she can't resist Mav's charm forever!
Such an adorable & funny story.
It wasn't anything new or mega exciting. I've read a million sexy and funny sports romances. And even lots of those had a cute nerdy girl. BUT - I love those books!!!! I love football romances. And this one was so sweet and funny and sexy and moving ... I loved Maverick and Delaney!
Even though I have NOTHING in common with Delaney - I hate cats & Star Wars and I've never seen The Princess Bride!!! ☺ But we both love sexy football players! ☺
And we can all agree that we hate Muffin!! Why is there always one of those mega b*tches in every college romance!?
I really enjoyed reading this book - I finished it in one day!
I would've loved a bit more epilogue or just a bit more of them after the happy end. It felt a tiny bit rushed at the end. But it was totally ok the way it ended!
Also, the cover - while mega sexy, it's not really Maverick. We don't have any football for most of the book, so he never runs around like that and... it's just not Mav.
Can't wait to get Ryker's story next!!!

I DARE YOU was such an adorable & funny & moving college football romance!
Run to your nearest amazon for your own MAVERICK - this one is MINE!
