Hey friends! I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the 10 TRUTHS AND A DARE by Ashley Elston Blog Tour hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my post and make sure to enter the giveaway!
About the Book:
This companion to Ashley Elston’s beloved 10 Blind Dates follows Sophie’s high-achieving cousin Olivia as she juggles last-minute P.E. credit, end-of-year parties, and a secret new romance in the chaotic week before graduation.
It’s Senior Party Week, that magical in-between time after classes have ended but before graduation, chock-full of gimmicky theme parties, last-minute bonding, and family traditions. Olivia couldn’t be more ready. Class salutatorian and confident in her future at LSU, she’s poised to sail through to the next phase of her life.
But when the tiny hiccup of an unsigned off-campus P.E. form puts Olivia in danger of not graduating at all, she has one week to set things straight without tipping off her very big and very nosy extended family. Volunteering to help at a local golf tournament should do it, but since Olivia’s mom equipped her phone with a tracking app, there’ll be no hiding the fact that she’s at the golf course instead of all the graduation parties happening at the same time. Unless, that is, she can convince the Fab Four–her ride-or-die cousins and best friends Sophie, Charlie, and Wes–to trade phones with her as they go through the motions of playing Olivia for the week.

I was such a fan of 10 Blind Dates, so I was so excited when the author announced another book following this family! And boy this book did not disappoint!
This book follows Sophia’s cousin, Olivia as she navigates senior year and trying to graduate on time. As a recent high school grad myself, this book was super relatable and I found myself nodding along with Olivia throughout the book. I adored her character, as she’s such a good person and so hyper focused; she doesn’t see the small things. And it only added to my enjoyment when we got glimpses of Sophia and Wes in this book! As with 10 Blind Dates, this story is full of wacky hijinks, romance, humor and touching family moments.
PLot-wise, I thought the pacing was really great. It’s quite fast paced, and I finished this book in one sitting. Once I started, I could not put it down. I had to know how it would end. Overall, this was another great YA contemporary by Elston. I will be reading any and all things she writes from here on out 🙂
