The Date Dare is a short and sweet story revolving around two lifelong friends, Darcy and Elliot. Darcy is an international hotel chain expert and Elliot is a trainer for a professional lacrosse team. Throughout the past 25 years, they have always kept in touch. Elliot's never been one to settle down into long-term relationships. And because Darcy feels like she knows him better than anyone, she dares Elliott to let her find him a date. Someone who she feels would be a good fit for him. Never one to resist a good dare, Elliot agrees to it on the condition that he is allowed to do the same thing for her. Darcy and Elliott have a great friendship. You can see how close they are by their interactions. Watching each of them go on their dates was a fun and interesting aspect to the story. But no matter who they went out with or what they did, I was just waiting for that moment when Elliott would realize that he no longer could be on the sidelines when it came to his love for Darcy. Even though The Date Dare is a short story, it didn’t feel rushed and the characters were easy to like. If you are in the mood for a little romantic pick me up, then read The Date Dare. And while you are at it, check out The Date Deal, the second book involving Elliot’s sister, Carsen. RATING: 3½ out of 5. **Even though this book was given to me on behalf of the Author, the thoughts & opinions expressed are solely my own. **

I loved seeing this fun and flirty side from Ms. Sue Me. Darcy and Elliott have been best friends forever…but Elliott is hiding something from her. He’s in love with Darcy and doesn’t know how to tell her. So of course the logical thing would be to agree to set the other up on a date. What could go wrong??!! This was a quick, light and sweet read and I can’t wait for the next book. I’m dying to know HOW those two get together.

Why are the things we find most important in life, what we take for granted the most? Darcy and Elliott are about to learn the high price of letting go. The Date Dare is another Tara Sue Me gem. This feel good tale is a heartbreaker with an irresistible couple. Elliott and Darcy have always counted on each other to get them through the big stuff. Their friendship has helped them endure heartache, humiliation and so many other milestones in their lives. When their longstanding bond experiences it's first major growing pain, their relationship will never be the same. The Date Dare hits the heart from all sides. From funny bone to broken heart, Elliott and Darcy are an unforgettable breath of fresh air.

3.75 stars-- THE DATE DARE is the first instalment in Tara Sue Me’s contemporary, adult , romance series. This is thirty year old, trainer for the Georgia Storm professional lacrosse team Elliott Taber, and Darcy Patrick’s story line. Told from dual first person perspectives (Elliott and Darcy) THE DATE DARE follows the friends to lovers relationship between thirty year old, trainer for the Georgia Storm professional lacrosse team Elliott Taber, and Darcy Patrick. Best friends since the age of five, Elliott and Darcy have done everything together except fall in love but fall in love Elliott did, and desperate to prove there may be someone else, Elliott dares Darcy to find each other a date, not expecting Darcy to fall for another man. As Darcy begins to ‘date’ the man with whom Elliott sets her up, Elliott battles between head and heart as he and Darcy grow further apart. What ensues are the back and forth dating experiences of Darcy and Elliott, and the potential fall-out as Elliott struggles to let Darcy know, she is the one. We are introduced to former professional baseball player Tate Maddox, actress Kara Devine, and Elliott’s sister Carsen Taber. While Tate and Darcy continue to build their relationship, nothing goes according to plans for Elliott Taber. Carsen and Tate’s story line is next in The Date Deal. The relationship between Elliott and Darcy is a best friends to lovers romance wherein Darcy is oblivious to Elliott’s attraction, and Elliott struggles to tell Darcy the truth. The $ex scenes are limited but passionate. THE DATE DARE is a cute but predictable story; a sweet, sexy and sassy tale where love is but a friendship away. The premise is spirited; the romance is flirty ; the characters are colorful ,energetic and fun.

Darcy and Elliott have been best friends since kindergarten. He has helped her get over a broken heart and she has watched him date many women. It all changes for Elliott at a charity ball when he realizes that he has never been in a relationship because he's in love with Darcy. But he's scared to tell her in case it doesn't work out and then he will lose his best friend. Darcy is clueless to Elliott's feelings for her and so she dares him that she since she knows him best, she will find him the perfect date. He can't let it go at that, so he declares that he will find her the perfect date. Elliott's date ends up being a bust, but Darcy may have found the man of her dreams. This is a cute romance that made me laugh out loud ... Elliott's date was priceless! The banter between Darcy and Elliott is so realistic, that I can just imagine those silly conversations happening. This is my first book by Ms. Me and I was pleasantly surprised because the characters had substance and the storyline was cute but still had lots of steam. But what was up with Tate? I guess we'll find out in the next book. | received an ARC courtesy of Kobo Writing Life through NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.

Elliott and Darcy Had been best friends since Kindergarten so Darcy felt no one knew Elliott as well as she did. But she can’t figure out why he dates the women he does. Darcy will admit Elliott is a hot guy and she has fantasized about him but she would never exchange that for their friendship. Her parents had divorced when Darcy was eleven , Darcy’s dad had died five years ago. Only Elliott had been her steady support through it all. Elliott works with athletes and Darcy worked in the hotel industry. Usually Darcy wasn’t in her home city two weeks out of the month but right now she was staying in Atlanta for an extended time and Elliott would be also as the Storm’s season had just ended. They didn’t have to hide anything from each other but Elliott was. He realized last year at the Charity ball he was in love with Darcy and had not revealed his feelings toward her in any way. Darcy did not let Elliott know how attracted she was to him and fantasized about him. Elliott is meeting Darcy at a restaurant and Darcy realizes this the first time in almost a year Elliott comes without a date. Then Darcy thinks she had the answer Elliott had been dating all the wrong type of women. Elliott already knew this as the woman he wanted to be with was Darcy but he didn’t have the nerve to tell her. Then Darcy decides she wants to set Elliott with a date and he agrees as long as he can do the same for her. Elliott figures he shouldn’t set Darcy up with an egotistical athlete - he couldn’t do that to hard. Then he comes up with Tate Maddox had five great years in baseball then he left professional sports behind him completely. Tate claimed he didn’t like what fame was making him into and he said he didn’t need more money. Tate now runs a sports camp up in the mountains for underprivileged kids. It was probably the most painful thing Elliott had ever done but he calls and talks to Tate and tells him to call Darcy. A week later Darcy calls with the name and number of the woman for Elliott’s date -Kara Devine. Kara was a local actress who was doing some marketing for the hotel chain. Kara’s and Elliott's date was a disaster but Darcy really enjoyed her date with Tate. Tate is a great person. As Tate and Darcy see each other Darcy senses something isn’t quite right with her being with Tate. Elliott is kicking himself in the butt as he loves Darcy and he has [probably lost her to Tate. I loved this romance and it really was so sweet. I loved Darcy and Elliott together and how they interacted with each other. I was a little surprised Darcy hadn’t figured out her feelings for Elliott sooner but she didn’t want to lose him either so… This was a predictable romance and yet it didn’t take away from the romance as far as i am concerned. I loved how everyone bit Darcy sees how Elliott really feels about her. This was a quick easy romantic read that I read in one setting. I happily found nothing to criticize in this book. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend it.
