I’ve left some clues for you. If you want them, turn the page. If you don’t, put the book back on the shelf, please. 
At the urge of her lucky-in-love brother, sixteen-year-old Lily has left a red notebook full of dares on her favourite bookshop shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept. Curious, snarky Dash isn’t one to back down from a challenge – and the Book of Dares is the perfect distraction he’s been looking for. 

As they send each other on a scavenger hunt across Manhattan, they’re falling for each other on paper. But finding out if their real selves share their on-page chemistry could be their biggest dare yet….
Rating: 4/5

My Review:

This book was so sweet, and perfect to read around Christmas time! I wanted to read this, along with The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily but I just got too busy this year with work and Christmas. But when I finally found time to set aside for reading I powered through it, and loved it! I plan to now save The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily for next Christmas so I have that too look forward to!

I love that this was a pen pal story where they would share the notebook back and fourth without meeting for most of the book. We live in a digital age, so it was nice to read a story where they took pen to paper and bonded over that. I love the contrast between the two characters where when is light and optimistic, and the other is more pessimistic and sarcastic. Lily was a very whimsical and quirky character, and Dash was her complete opposite but yet they seem so perfect for each other.

The few things I didn't like so much was how immature Lily could be at times, but luckily it wasn't too bad where I disliked her character. Also I started to get impatient about how long it took them to meet, but luckily just as I started to get impatient, they met not long after that. So that's why the few things I didn't like weren't so bad, and why this book was just so sweet and a wonderful holiday book.
