Five Dates is a story of BFFs that are graduating from college and trying to figure out the rest of their lives. Andy is the daredevil and Jake, his sidekick. Andy convinces Jake to do a stunt at their graduation party with fireworks that leaves them both with terrible burns on their hands. They spend their last summer recupperating and falling in love, but Andy feels like he has to live up to his father's expectations and Jake knows he has to move on.
Andy is an idiot who has always been in love with Jake, but didn't realize it was love he was feeling. Jake's always known he was in love with Andy, but Andy's straight, so he swallowed his feelings.
Five Dares is sweet, sappy, and funny. I really love this book. It's in my top two Eli Easton books (with Mr. Miggles. If you haven't read Merry Christmas, Mr. Miggles, go get it now!). I hope you love these guys as much as I did. Five Dares is now on my comfort read list - it's just that lovely.
