    RATINGS: 1 STAR FOR DARING TO WRITE A TRASHY BOOK WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS AND CURSING. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK. I want to laugh at myself for daring to read this book. I don't know how this book ended up in my tbr shelf but it's making me to check all the books in the shelf. Well, I didn't expect much from this book from the beginning because of the book cover (yeah, it's painful to the eyes) but what I didn't expect was that the book would be...

      ~WRITING - PLOT - PACE~Well, color me impressed because this book turned out to be all kinds of awesome. It actually reminded me a little of Corrupt by Penelope Douglas. The writing was fantastic. The pace was very good considering that this was a LONG book. It took me near to six hours to finish it. It is told in a dual POV style (Cole & Austin). The plot was super engaging and had me skipping my lunch so I could see where this was heading. ...

    ★ 4 “I dare you” stars!! ★ Tenho que dizer que esse livro me surpreendeu porque eu não achava que ia curtir tanto e ficar totalmente presa como fiquei. “I wanna watch tears roll down your beautiful face because I think you’re gorgeous when you cry. I wanna see blood on your flawless skin because you look like a priceless work of art.” Eu gostei da Austin, personagem de gênio forte e com atitude. Fiquei muito impressionada e de b...

    4.25 Twisted StarsI randomly picked up this book. I was looking for a dark read and I got it. If you are a fan of L.J. Shen’s books, then you will LOVE I Dare You. It reminds me a lot of Vicious and that series. The book isn’t angsty but oh boy there is some major sexual tension between Cole and Austin (she’s a girl) no MM read. Well, it’s a little angsty. If you like a book where the guy is a complete asshole and majority of the book he ...

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐STARS ARC BOOK REVIEW Release Date-27/4/18I really enjoyed "I Dare You" By Shantel Tessier a lot more than I was initially expecting.And although this was a very long read it still managed to engage my attention throughout.I was actually rather sad to finish this and leave such a vibrant cast behind.So this was my first experience with this author but I can honestly assure you it definitely won't be my last.From the very moment I s...

    I really can't think of anything I liked about this book. I didn't like either of the MC's. Cole is a disgusting bastard who got turned on by blood (ew, just ew) and his gang got away with just about anything, (view spoiler)[even murder, gimme a break?? That's how ridiculous this was. (hide spoiler)] I'm all fot the hot asshole guy who is secretly in love with the girl but he was just pathetic. I'm surprised he didn't pee on Austin while other gu...

    Cole Reynolds was the guy that you wanted to hate. He was cruel and had a huge chip on his shoulder. But damn was he sexy!! 🔥🔥Austin was perfect for Cole. She was the only girl that could handle his craziness. I think she was almost as crazy as him. The chemistry between these two was crazy hot but I shouldn’t be having these thoughts because they were 18 and still in high school. The Great White Sharks were just that. They were sharks an...
  • Snow
    For those of you who loved Corrupt by Penelope Douglas, Silver Swan by Amo Jones, The Paper Princess by Erin Watt and Fallen Crest High by Tijan will most definitely like this book.It's such an angsty, passionate, gritty and suspenseful blend of everything essential in the contemporary romance genre and I won't get into much details cause I don't wanna give away anything major to the plot...cause well, the storyline is grippingly tight in those d...
  • Samantha
    Oh my!!! I loved this book! Definitely the best book i have read in 2018 so far! This was my first time reading a book by this author and now i am looking forward to reading even more of them! The suspense was the best part! This book wasn't your typical love story. It had a few grammar errors, but for the most part it was beautifully written! If you haven't read this book, i highly stress that you do so!!
  • BookSmacked
    Well facccckkk me I Dare You is sinfully and devilishly good. Now I will tell you when I found out that Shantel was writing this book I thought to myself OHHHHHHHHHHHHH SHIT !!! I am such a huge huge fan of books with deplorable behaviour. Give me characters that I want to maim and yell and scream at and I'm in book heaven.Cole Reynolds was just that character for me. He gave no fucks, NOT ONE. He and the GWS or Great White Sharks (his band of br...

    Eh. Hero was a manwhore psychopath while still being a high schooler. Heroine had betraying body in the second chapter even though hero physically harms her and threatens her life. Not for me. No thanks.

    The minute I read this blurb I knew I needed this book. It sounded sexy, intense, erotic and suspenseful - all things I love in my books. I thought Cole and Austin were PERFECT. I loved their chemistry, their tension-filled banter and all of the extended characters in this book. It was absolutely amazing!!When new girl in town Austin Lowes finds herself the lone girl in a crew of dangerous men where secrets and lies are like currency and danger a...

    A solid 3.75 Shark stars. You kind of have to suspend disbelief for this book because it's high school teenagers who seem to run the entire school, town and even the adults. And there's no less than 5 murders in total by the end and ... yeah, no ramifications whatsoever.Having said that tiny disclaimer, it was enjoyable! I couldn't help but like the asshole lead character Cole. He truly was an asshole, in both actions and his thoughts, but he ha...
  • Tongan Book Lover (Ofa Tafa)
    This book was recommended by a fellow bookworm who knew it was similar to what i normally read. The new girl in town catches the attention of the elite bad boy crew and their leader. It starts out as torture, as a game & they absolutely hate each other. But that's the thing about enemies to lovers trope, the secrets in between and watching them fall for each other. No matter how hard they try to resist. It gets me every time. This book had me on ...

    My god...this was f’n amazing!
  • Angela Fetter Hill
    I'm so sad this book is over :(! I loved it so much! It had everything that I love about a story. It was all mixed up in this wonderful story that I didn't want to end. My first read by this author and I was so impressed! She blew me away! Sooooo Good!!! Go read it!!!

    OHEMGEE!!I know I have a lot of friends who, like me, love authors like Penelope Douglas, BB Reid and LJ Shen. If you're a fan of Vicious, Fear Me or Corrupt, and quite a few of you are cause you message me asking for recommendations for books like it, then well, you're welcome cause I just found your next read.The plot twists and turns will leave you at the edge of your seat and you'll never expect anything that happens or see it coming.Shantel ...

    ***This and other reviews can be found at www.imasweetandsassybookwhore.com ****ARC*I have been attempting to write my review for I Dare You since I finished the book and I am still having a hard time. This book, OMG, this book satisfied my need for a dark romance and kept me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning until the end. It reminded me of some of my favorite darker romances all wrapped up into one. Three simple words, I dare you, ...

    4+ starsOkay, I LOVE these kinds of books and get so happy when one crosses my path. So here was have some ultra-elite and wealthy kids in high school. They are cruel, reckless, indulgent, etc. Everything is completely over-the-top, dramatic, and secretive. Even the secrets have secrets. It's dark, twisted, sexy, and has you flipping the pages trying to put the puzzle together. The adults are even more evil than the kids. I live for this. It's pr...

    Holy s***!!!!! I’ve never read a book that has had me wrapped up and in suspense from the very beginning until the very ending of the epilogue. I usually figure out who’s behind what in some books but not in this one. I kept gasping and swearing when discovering something new. Damnnnn so many secrets and lies omg it was so bad and oh so freaking good!!!!!!!!!Cole was the devil but Austin was the female version. I thought I’ve read about eve...

    I DARE YOU A gripping and intense read filled with mystery, blackmail,secrets, twists and turns with a darkness to it that just pulled me in that bit more the further I went in this plot. Cole Reynolds is the devil disguised as a man. He wants her fear, he wants her blood, and he wants her soul.Just a little game, he says, I dare you.Will Austin survive him, or will she lose herself and the game?Austin has a drug using mother, an abusing stepfath...

    "I'm treading water, but the water's too deep, and he's circling me. He smells like the blood and is just waiting to strike. Waiting to pull me into the darkness where he'll eat me alive."First of all, let me just say that I haven't had this much fun reading a book in a long time!! It just made my little twisted heart so happy!! The twists and turns, the utter and complete messing with your mind, it was intoxicating!! It had my heart racing, my c...

    4 *I dare you* estrelas Eu ameeeeei esse livro demais. Sabe aquele livro que te prende desde a primeira palavra até o ponto final? Esse é o livro. Que saudades que eu tava de ler um livro assim, meu Deus mandem mais livros assim. Eu adorei os personagens cada um com sua relevância para história.Único defeito desse livro que o final foi super corrido queria mais umas 200 páginas. Agora eu te desafio a ler esse livro é vir aqui dizer o que a...
  • Christiann Igou
    This book was different and I’m still undecided on how I feel about everything. Cole & Austin’s chemistry and banter is off the charts. The secondary charters are also on point and add depth to the story. Nothing is off limits betrayal, lies...this book has it all! It was well written and flowed effortlessly!
  • Angela James
    Oh my freaking goodness! This book just blew my mind! I was entranced by the story, captivated by the alpha aholes, and danced on pins and needles throughout the whole book. I mean hello... thrilling, dark, twisted, suspenseful, action packed madness! I freaking loved it. Definitely on my top ten list of must read books this year. Blood is in the water...who's gonna bite?! Love me some sharks! Eek and I'm claiming Cole and Deke haha
  • Sandra
    The book is perfect, a bit mind twisted...but so good..I couldn't put it down. 5+ stars! Bravo!
  • Shasta Hope
    I Voluntarily Reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book! Shantel Tessier goes outside the  box in this dark, intense  and twisted love story. She takes the pain from each character and weaves them delicately through the pages to form a solid and enamoring gritty love story.Two broken souls. Two different agendas. Can you really not think about fate when you are so determined by to create damage and heartache? Fate had other ideas when it co...
  • Tara The Obsessive Book Reader!
    This book was insane, it was crazy, lots of what the hell is happening right now but I say this in like in the best way possible. I was recommended this book by my book buddies and I am so glad I one clicked and read it. This book sort of reminded me of Corrupt by Penelope Douglas, B.B. Reid Fear me series and Amo Jones Elite kings series. From the moment I started this book, I was intrigued and couldn’t put it down. It sucked when I had to put...
