Dare To Kiss You
From bestselling author Julia Jarrett comes a steamy small town, secret relationship, neighbors to lovers romance between a sexy cop battling hidden anxiety, and the strong willed Donnelly sister.
I assumed my secret crush on my next door neighbor would stay just that - a secret.
Until my best friend dared me to ask Hunter Callaghan out.
I never turn down a dare…
It started as a way to get back into the dating scene after having my heart broken, but it quickly turned into something more.
The golden retriever energy Hunter shows the world hides a softer, vulnerable side. Emotions that he keeps locked away from everyone… Except me.
I see him for who he is, and it's those hidden depths that have me falling for him.
Being with Hunter is a dream come true. Until my meddling brothers start to pull at the seams of what we're building. Now I'm worried the man I'm falling for will ignore what's in his heart, and push me away.
Our relationship began because of a dare, but now I know the truth of who he is, I know this could be the start of forever.
Dare To Kiss You is perfect for fans of steamy small town romance centered around a big family who love to get in each other's business. It has plenty of swoon, plenty of spice, light hearted banter, quirky small town vibes, low angst and a guaranteed HEA.

I loved Hunter and Kat!!!
This is the first book in Julia Jarrett’s newest series, The Donellys of Dogwood Cove, and its Hunter and Kat’s love story. I thought “Dare To Kiss You” was absolutely amazing; small town romance is one of my favorite tropes, and this book did not disappoint!!! Hunter’s struggles with anxiety were something that I could really relate to, and I thought he was really swoony. As for Kat, I thought she was a wonderful character due to her compassion and kindheartedness. 5 freaking stars!!!
Hunter and Kat are amazing
The Donnelly’s are here!!! Wow!!! Now this story is perfect and complete. Dare. What it takes for her to be brave and ask him finally, three little words “I dare you”. Just what Kat needs to finally talk to her crush. I love how both are crushing for each other for years!!! And now is the perfect time to be together. They are all sweetness and hotness, the perfect chemistry. I love how Hunter, despite his insecurities, manages to overcome everything for the love of Kat. I really love that in this story they are both in the same boat about insecurities but together they feel safe and secure. They are so cute and definitely a perfect couple. Their HEA was perfection. I love Princess Sparkles, I mean Gigi lol. They are so cute and h0t together. Can’t wait for all the Donnelly Brothers, specially Max. This new series in Dogwood Cove is going to be awesome!!!
It was a novella now it’s better
I love it. Originally I read it as a novella but I wanted to actually see a full picture of the characters. Their development and secret. It was amazing that the author remade it into the story we have now. I enjoyed it again and all the new information is very welcoming. It still gives me the romantic vibe that it had and the amount of love that happens.
