Summary: (Goodreads

Ella is nearly invisible at the Willing School, and that's just fine by her. Still, it's hard being a nobody and having a crush on the biggest somebody in the school: Alex Bainbridge. Especially when he is her French tutor, and lessons have started becoming, well, certainly more interesting than French ever has been before.


I did like this one, it was adorable and it did have a moment to appreciate art more. Learning all these facts of art while falling in love with the Ella and Alex. I loved how it all blended together. Jensen did a beautiful job with creating the chemistry between these two characters!! I was rooting for them both until the very end. The Fine Art of Truth or Dare will give you new ideas that will also help you try new things and also temptation from the cool table. 

I really loved Ella's character, she was strong even after what she went through as a child. She has a deep connection to art because of her research project and ever since she was little, loved local artists. Alex comes to her attention because he forgets his textbook and he also helps her with tutoring with French. I loved their scenes together because despite the class and amount of money his family has he gets to know her, and have the same similarities. He really grows on you once you get to know him. Ella's family is a great supporting characters, loved each one of them because they love Ella for who she is, and they want to encourage her dream of becoming an artist + Italian family (<3) 

This book is unique and full of culture that it will enchant you and show you that art can bring love together, even french tutoring !! Melissa Jensen is very talented and I look forward to many more books by her. It is a very good novel!! I cant wait to read it again soon!!
