Daring the Bad Boy is a short book about a one night stand between two people trying to forget, on that very special holiday for lovers, Valentine's Day. As Rosie and Cal engage in sexual congress that delivers on all it promises, they both find out the inconvenient truth. That what started out as pure lust can deepen into something more in a matter of just 24 hours. Short but sweet and hot oh so hot, Cal and Rosie will just worm their way into readers' hearts with their flaws and weakness, their strength and sweetness. Daring the Bad Boy can be heartbreakingly funny and angsty (but only for a moment) and altogether a great romance.

So if you don't like insta love and you don't like short novels that you might feel can't deliver on character or plot development, I think that Daring the Bad Boy is worth a shot for you to read. Despite the romantic cliches and the almost too common tropes, Ms. Rice has managed to craft two characters whose personality just begs for readers to get to know and to go on a journey very few people can go on, for just 24 hours.


What happens on Valentine’s Night, stays on Valentine’s Night… That’s the rule.

After a trip home to bury his father, US photographer in London Caleb Landry finds himself stranded in a Soho bar full of boozy women brooding his way through his least favourite night of the year.

But when college art teacher Rosie Smith tries out the cheesiest pick-up line ever on him, Cal becomes captivated by this good girl with a filthy mind – especially when he discovers she has a V-Day allergy of her own. So he dares her to one smokin’ hot Valentine’s night hook-up with no questions asked, satisfaction guaranteed…

But when Valentine’s Night turns into the morning after, suddenly Rosie’s asking questions she shouldn’t, and putting Cal in danger of breaking his number one rule.
