again, facing the stage, and I moved behind her, leaving only a sliver of space
between us. It was perfect timing because
the song ended and the band went straight into something with less base. The
sea of faceless people swayed and bobbed their heads in time with the mellow
beat. Becca followed them, her shoulders swinging from side to side. Her black
sweater hung off one shoulder, revealing a khaki tank top underneath and milky
skin just begging to be touched. Without thinking, I slid my arms around her
waist and gathered her against me. Her body recoiled, and I felt Becca’s fight
instinct kick in, but I held firm, dipping my mouth to her ear. “It’s me,” I

closest Becca had let me get since the night we’d been together. My fingers dug
into her hips at the memory, anchoring her to me, but she didn’t move. She didn’t

easier, and I hadn’t expected—or even wanted—it to happen, but I needed her.
After the cliffhanger that the last book ended with, I could not wait to read this to find out how the story ended. I’m not a big fan of cliffhangers – mostly because I am very impatient – but you can always tell a good book if the cliffhanger held your attention the entire time you waited for the second book to come out.
This book is the conclusion of Becca and Evan’s story. We finally see how their relationship plays out, we finally find out all the secrets and we see life turn around for some characters. This author writes so many twists and unexpected turns in the story that the reader will be engrossed in the story line for the duration of the book. Because of the cliffhanger that book one ends on, it is highly recommended that you read Liar, Liar before you read Truth or Dare; otherwise you may not understand where the book is starting out. This is clsssified as Mature YA and I am going to stress the Mature part; there are a couple scenes in the book that are not for young ears & eyes. But there is a bit of suspense and even some romance in the book to keep all readers interested. All in all, I give my rating of 4.5 starts – well worth the read!
