 My Review: 
Truth or Dare (Truth or Dare #1)Truth or Dare by Sloan Johnson
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Lea Baker has been in love with her best friend Colby all through high school, and into her college years. They are best friends and roommates, but Lea is at a point where she realizes she can't keep loving him and accepting his friendship as a substitute for what she early wants. Lea has no idea that Colby has been in love with her too, and the only reason he hasn't revealed his feelings to her is because he knows that her future is to finish college, and his is to move to Nashville to pursue a career in music. He wants her to be in a relationship that she deserves, and he doesn't feel that he is that person. Additionally, he doesn't want to hurt her even more when he moves away.

This book was short and sweet. I thing the alternating perspectives helped the reader understand both characters and where they were coming from. It was hard to see them both suffering and feeling like they couldn't be open with one another about the depth of their feelings. Unfortunately it took a rough night and some unfortunate circumstances to bring them to a point where they stopped hiding from one another. The ending of the book felt real, and hopeful. I enjoyed this story and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quick friends to lovers read.

  About Sloan Johnson sloanSloan Johnson is a big city girl trapped in a country girl’s body. While she longs for the hustle and bustle of New York City or Las Vegas, she hasn’t yet figured out how to sit on the deck with her morning coffee, watching the deer and wild turkeys in the fields while surrounded by concrete and glass. When she was three, her parents received their first call from the principal asking them to pick her up from school. Apparently, if you aren’t enrolled, you can’t attend classes, even in Kindergarten. The next week, she was in preschool and started plotting her first story soon after. Later in life, her parents needed to do something to help their socially awkward, uncoordinated child come out of her shell and figured there was no better place than a bar on Wednesday nights. It’s a good thing they did because this is where she found her love of reading and writing. Who needs socialization when you can sit alone in your bedroom with a good book?
Now, Sloan is a tattooed, purple haired mom of two kids, one of which was a thank you present to her husband for letting her get a Staffordshire Terrier with more anxiety issues than Sloan has, which is saying something. She’s been kicked out of the PTA in two school districts and is no longer asked to help with fundraisers because she’s been known to lose herself in a good book and forget that she has somewhere to be.
