Goodreads Summary:
Ryan lowers his lips to my ear. "Dance with me, Beth."
"No." I whisper the reply. I hate him and I hate myself for wanting him to touch me again....
"I dare you..."
If anyone knew the truth about Beth Risk's home life, they'd send her mother to jail and seventeen-year-old Beth who knows where. So she protects her mom at all costs. Until the day her uncle swoops in and forces Beth to choose between her mom's freedom and her own happiness. That's how Beth finds herself living with an aunt who doesn't want her and going to a school that doesn't understand her. At all. Except for the one guy who shouldn't get her, but does....
Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock-with secrets he can't tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn't be less interested in him.
But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams-and his life-for the girl he loves, and the girl who won't let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all...

I must admit, I was a little disappointed when I saw that we were getting Beth's story and the guy she was falling for was not Isaiah. After all, after the first book, I was pretty sure Beth and Isaiah were going to end up together. But then I met Ryan and, in all honesty, he is completely perfect for Beth. This book had all the intensity and emotions that Pushing the Limits. I was surprised at how much I ended up liking Beth. I didn't care for her at all during Pushing the Limits but once I got in to her head and started seeing where she was coming from, I loved her. The chemistry between Beth and Ryan was off the charts. If you want a good romance with lots of feels, this would be a perfect read for you.

Now let's move on to Isaiah's story and find out who the perfect girl for him is!
