Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
First off, this cover is absolutely gorgeous! It’s one I need on my bookshelf!
Oh my word. I have no idea how to put into words how utterly amazing this book is. I already knew by looking at the cover that this book would break me. I wasn’t wrong. I Dare You keeps you on the edge THE ENTIRE TIME! It will shock you. It will break you. It will feck you up. Then it will put you all back together again nicely with a single black bow. I don’t even think you need a summary of this book. I think you just need to read it. Cole had me wrapped up so tightly around his finger. With one sentence he had me addicted to him, “I like to take pretty, innocent things and destroy them.”. Cole is a high I want to experience again and again. Austin, damn girl. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bigger crush on a girl as I do her. She’s fierce, she’s broken, she’s mischievous, she’s strong, she’s far from perfect, she’s fecking real.
As you can maybe see, I more than loved this book. The dark aspects drew me in. The vulnerabilities drew me in. Hell, the prologue had me hooked. Never before have truer words been spoken, don’t scoff we’ve all thought the same things before. Shantel Tessier’s writing had me hypnotized. The characters blew me away. The secrets, the lies, every single thing about this book kept me stuck to my kindle way past my bedtime. If I could give this more than five stars I would!
I dare you to read this.
