Double Dog Dare You by Lacey Black Review



* * * * * * * * * *



One simple text message can change everything. I found that out the hard way. One minute I’m complaining about a horrible picture of a guy’s you-know-what, and the next, I’m having conversations with a stranger. A gorgeous, rebel of a man who makes my heart skip a beat and does a number on my panties.

The only problem is we’re not looking for the same things in life. I want stability and a family, while he always has his eye out for the next good time.


She may literally be the most beautiful woman I’ve ever met. Funny, it all started with an accidental text message. About unwanted male member photos, actually, and from that moment, I was hooked. She’s the perfect woman really, except for one tiny little flaw. She’s looking for the one thing that makes me want to run for the door. Forever.

Yet, somehow, I can’t seem to let her go. She might be the one dare I actually fail.

Lacey Black’s Double Dog Dare You was so much fun! A text message gone awry, turns a case of mistaken identity into a sweet and sexy strangers-to-lovers romance. Royce Rigsby isn’t looking to be anyone’s Mr. Right—he’s more of a Mr. Right Now kind of guy. After spending twelve years in the Army, Rigsby settled in Gatlinburg to be close to his mother and brother, and he’s the manager of a ziplining company in this bustling tourist town. Quinn Michaels, a private school principal, isn’t having the best luck in the dating pool if her last date is anything to go by. But her luck might be changing after a text meant for her best friend lands on Rigsby’s phone instead, and the sparks start to fly.

Rigsby and Quinn’s relationship felt a lot like fate, and I really enjoyed the feeling of serendipity around them. They kept popping up in each other’s lives, and the natural bantering both by text and in person made for an easy, organic connection between them. I loved how Rigsby challenged Quinn, and my heart soared happily as Rigsby realizes his feelings are more than simple lust.

Witty and full of charm, Double Dog Dare You by Lacey Black was a feel-good romantic comedy that kept me smiling, swooning and swiping the pages of my Kindle. I was rooting for Rigsby and Quinn from the first page, and I devoured their love story in a single sitting. Black delivers another winner with endearing characters, a light-hearted, sexy romance, and a satisfying blend of heartfelt emotion and humor. Lacey Black’s Double Dog Dare You gets 4.5 smooches from me!
