My Review:

Friends often tell me that they don’t like novellas because there is so much “not covered,” “not explained,” or “not enough depth” in them. However, I enjoy novellas, especially when I need a quick read while I’m waiting in the doctor’s office, traveling, or just want a pick me up. One thing I know is Denise Hunter is a great novella author. She places you in the setting with enough details that you don’t get bogged down and can focus on the relationship of the characters. She creates the tension, dilemma, or trial her characters face and carries you along to a crescendo of resolution at the end. With all the negative news and information streamed to our phones, TV’s, and radios, it’s always nice to read something with a “happily ever after.” Truth or Dare is a sweet, quick read about perception of wealth, or lack thereof, and how it defines how Brianna and Jake interact with one another. Sometimes we have to put aside our perceptions so we can see the truth of the heart.
