He'll make her a bet she can't refuse...

Lily McIntire is in the creepiest mansion in town. Alone. At night. Because she's an idiot-and can't ignore a dare from her cocky and infuriatingly hot co-worker, Marcus Black. But she'll be damned if she's going to give him the satisfaction of winning.

Marcus has had a thing for Lily for ages, and he has no intention of losing this bet. His plan? Scare her out of the house, and into his arms. Once there, scaring her turns into protecting her and soon after, into seducing her. And his plan is working...

Lily is having trouble relegating Marcus to the role of "asshat" as easily as before. He came to her rescue, and he's actually funny. Charming. Sexy as sin on a stick. But Lily has a strict no-love-in-the-workplace rule, and even one night of the best sex ever won't make her change her mind. So she's calling everything off...

Surviving a night in the mansion might just be the easy part. Surviving Marcus's increasingly convincing advances is going to take everything she has. Losing is not an option...

If You Dare is the epitome of a sassy summer read. Not only was it fun and sexy, it'll also keep you up past your bedtime on a hot summer night without even an ounce of guilt. I love immersing myself into Jessica's books as I meet her characters. Lily and Marcus made me want to work with them just so I could experience their chemistry first hand. I wanted to make a side bet with their co-workers on how long it'll take them to wind up in each other's arms. I would have loved to sit back and watch them try to hide the obvious fact that their feelings run deep. It won't be easy for them in the long run, what with Lily determined to not make the same mistake twice, but it'll sure be fun along the way. If You Dare is a book that you can start and finish in a couple hours because you just can't put it down. Jessica's writing will suck you in and her characters will keep you company as you follow them on their journey. If You Dare was so much fun packed into one pretty package...

A former job-hopper, Jessica Lemmon resides in Ohio with her husband and rescue dog. She holds a degree in graphic design currently gathering dust in an impressive frame. When she's not writing super-sexy heroes, she can be found cooking, drawing, drinking coffee (okay, wine), and eating potato chips. She firmly believes God gifts us with talents for a purpose, and with His help, you can create the life you want.
