Synopsis:  Dare to Lie

As an undercover DEA agent in the most powerful gang in Boston, Scott Donahue accepts the risks of living a double life. But when Tate Donovan, leader of the Sons of Steel Row, assigns Scotty to take his place in a bachelor’s auction sponsored by his sister’s sorority, he’s exposed to a whole new level of danger. Even though Tate makes it very clear—Skylar is off limits—the second Scotty sees her, he’s a goner. But how does he tell Sky she’s falling for a man who doesn’t exist?

Sky can’t resist Scotty’s cool confidence or the raw, edgy power oozing from his perfect body. She’s always been the good girl, but he brings out the bad in her. And even though she knows so little about who he really is, Sky’s willing to take the biggest risk of all. But putting her heart on the line is no guarantee that Scotty won’t slip through her fingers. (Goodreads)


Let’s get one thing clear. I loved Dare to Lie, I loved Skylar, I loved Scotty, I loved this book! Now, moving on.

Dare to Lie is the third book in the Sons of Steel Row series by author Jen McLaughlin, where Scotty an undercover DEA agent is auctioned off to the Sons of Steel Row’s leader Tate’s sister Skylar. After spending a night together getting to know each other -just talking nothing else- these two start a secret heated relationship too dangerous to put everyone at risk.

My favorite characters by far were Skylar and Scotty. Skylar wasn’t your typical romance character. She knew the boundaries and respected them, and never asked Scotty for more. Scotty was different, he was the first one to set the boundaries and the first one to question them, but I liked that about him because he was the one to see that they were good for each other, and that he would protect her.

It had been a while since I had read something like Dare to Lie and instantly love it. The story progressed at a good pace and didn’t drag, and since this is the third book in the series, those who have read the previous books can get a glimpse and mentions of past characters that turn out to be acquaintances of Sky and Scotty.

Overall, Dare to Lie is a great romance book where the main characters deal with knowing their own boundaries and when they can cross them in order to be with one another. I really recommend this book if you’re looking for something romantic and refreshing to read.
Reviewer’s note: Playlist song – Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift, for Sky and Scotty.
