Review: Dare to Love by Rosemarie Naramore

Book Blurb

It isn’t easy being the sheriff’s daughter. When Laura Tyler is pulled over for speeding for the third time in as many months, her father gives her an ultimatum: join the station’s explorers’ club, or lose her car for the summer. She just can’t be without her car, and joins the club, despite the fact that she has zero interest in law enforcement. She does, however, develop an interest in fellow Explorer Scout, Dare, who it happens was her arresting … adolescent.

Does Dare have feelings for her too? Or, has another explorer caught his eye?


Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Laura is pulled over again for speeding. This makes three times in three months. She is humiliated when the deputy arrests her. Her father, the sheriff, is furious and the cutest boy, Dare, gets to watch and be a part of her downfall.

As punishment she is encouraged to join the Explorers group. Laura has to face her classmates and Dare during the meetings. She is embarrassed and hurt that everyone thinks she is reckless on purpose. She also has feelings for Dare but is unsure of herself and him. Her nemesis Courtney is determined to keep Laura from Dare.

This YA story was interesting. The insecurities of a teenage girl seemed to be the theme. I liked the idea behind the story with the hidden issues from death of two parents. It would have been a deeper story if the author would have explored that avenue a bit.

Instead I thought Laura was annoying and the writing a bit choppy in places. The story had so much potential I wish the author would have did more. I give it a 2.5 out of 5.
