Double Dare: Dare You To Flash-Fiction Contest

Dare You To by Katie McGarryGolden boy Ryan Stone and his friends get kicks from outrageous dares — they once went so far as to move a friend’s car, without driving it. But when Ryan’s friends dare him to get the phone number of a hot skater chick, he faces his biggest challenge yet. Beth couldn’t be less interested in Ryan. And she’s definitely not his type. Neither were expecting to feel this intense connection. Turns out Beth and Ryan have more in common than they could have ever imagined.

  1. Hey there, I entered a story in this competition, I don’t know if I was too late or if you know it was entered.
    “For the rest of my life” is the story…just so you know 🙂

    • You made it. Entries had to be in by 11:59 PM eastern time. If my time-changing from eastern time to my time, it’s officially over as of about 20 minutes ago. Good luck!
