The Other Side of Dare by Vanessa Davis Griggs

When a battle of wills threatens to tear a family apart, a child shall lead them—straight to a shocking secret. Will they betray their faith—and each other—to keep it buried?

After seven years of marriage, Paris Simmons-Holyfield and her husband, Andrew, are still childless. Now Paris is determined to adopt orphaned nine-year-old Jasmine Noble. Trouble is, Jasmine's in the custody of ex-stripper Gabrielle Mercedes. Worse, Andrew is vehemently against the idea—and he's not alone. Paris's father, Lawrence Simmons, a powerful politician, has vowed to shut his daughter down. The only man to even dare be on Paris's side is shady Darius Connors. Unemployed and not quite out of the dog house with his wife, Darius is more than happy to help the beautiful, vulnerable, yet undeterred Paris. . .

Paris has her suspicions about why her husband and her father are so opposed to the adoption. But the reality is far more scandalous than she imagines. To get to the bottom of it, she'll have to deal with blackmail from the last person she ever expected—and battle Gabrielle, who'll fight with everything she's got—including the truth. Soon, all involved will learn just what's on the other side of dare. . .

"I absolutely love Vanessa's unique writing style." —Mary Monroe

Mrs. Griggs is a wonderful writer and in this book she tells a wonderful story of love, forgiveness, and reaping what one has sown. You will not want to stop reading once you start reading. The twist and turns that bring this story together are well written and keep you wanting to know more. If you have not done so I would suggest that your read the entire series ( Blessed Trinity).

Title: The Other Side of Dare Author: Vanessa Davis Griggs Publisher: Dafina Series: The Blessed Trinity Series #8 Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: 5 Review: "The Other Side of Dare by Vanessa Davis Griggs In a powerful new inspirational novel in the Blessed Trinity series, the award-winning author of "Redeeming Waters" weaves the compelling story of a family threatened by a shocking secret. What I truly enjoyed from the read: The Other Side of Dare... This was another one of this author's great Christian novels. It holds to the saying: " that what is done in the dark will come to light." I found this read so interesting that once I started reading I couldn't put it down until the end. Finding someone at their end but being able to turn your life around was truly part of this good read that was truly enjoyable. This author writes so well of the reality of what can go on a 'todays church's' that will leaves you spell bound in the world that we live in today and are called Christians. I was definitely left saying wow...'Blessed Trinity' it is!

This book continues the story of Gabrielle Mercedes and her everlasting struggle with Paris Simmons-Holyfield. Ms. Vanessa has done it again. She truly has a way of spinning a tale! She is certainly gifted! The story unfolds and truth comes to the light throughout this book. Folks don't know what to think about how their business is getting out! It is fantastically awesome! If you THINK you know what is likely to happen, you'll NEVER guess this. Some stuff goes down...and you are NOT ready for the who! But I love the story. I can't wait until the next book The Other Side of Divine comes out. I believe there is some more truth to be unveiled! What I love about Ms. Vanessa's books is that there is ALWAYS a good message in them. With The Other Side of Dare, she does not disappoint! Pastor Landris makes some appearances in this book. Listen to what he says! My favorite line in the book is when he tells his wife why he is not worried about her and was cute! Bottom line: If you've read any book by Vanessa Davis Griggs, you need to read this one. It is certainly one worth the money.

This series takes you through spiritual highs and lows, which gives your heart joy when God gets the glory no matter what the situation you face be challenge with. I've read every book to this series and was waiting on pins and needles for this novel and was very please beyond my imagination and looking forward to the next book. I love the characters in this series. These characters should meet a few of the character from the Guilty Series by Pat Simmons and Rain Series by Vanessa Miller they would have a Holy Ghost revival in the presence of their enemies.
