Blog Tour Review—IF YOU DARE (Dare #3) by Shantel Tessier



IF YOU DARE (Dare #3) by Shantel Tessier Release Date: August 26th Cover Designer: Tracie Douglas at Dark Water Covers


The game was over. The dares were getting old, and the secrets were piling up faster than the bodies.
But someone had other plans. They wanted to play a new game.
Becky Holt was the love of his life until he found out what she was hiding. Now he wants to seek his revenge in the most daring way.
Deke Biggs has always been a shark. He’s not afraid to kill, and he's about to become her worst nightmare.
But there’s a new player, and she plans on taking everything, no matter what the cost.
Try to beat him— If You Dare!
Who will win and who will lose?


These books get better and better., my man, are absolute perfection! If you haven’t met Deke yet, whatcha waiting for?

What to say without giving absolutely everything away? Hm. One thing you can know for sure is that this is dark and dirty—but in such a great way. You want an alpha-hole for your next book boyfriend? Well, here he is! 

Someone new has caught his eye and I’m all here for it. We also see some of faves; such as Austin and Cole. They’re all in Texas now, trying to live after the events that took place in the first book. They should know that nothing ever stays calm for long. The ending really got me. I thought it was done very well. 

Crazy. Twisted. And ohhhh the betrayals! The drama was juicy enough to keep me wanting more. I can’t wait for more, if the author writes more.

Prologue: Deke
Death Is A debt we are all born owing.

It is something that money can't buy nor can it be traded.

You can't bargain for more time. When it's up you accept it like a fucking man.

I've never been afraid to die. Or to love, for that matter.

Aren't they the same?
You surrender to a fate you have no control over.

You don't get to choose when or how you die, just as you can't choose when and who you fall in love with.

Some couples get a happily ever after while others are toxic for one another.
My love was like that.

She lied; I believed every word.
I hurt her; she forgave too easily.
It was a vicious circle of deceit and sex wrapped up in a pretty black bow. Neither one of us could quit.

I wrapped my hand around her throat, and she begged me to breathe.
She stabbed me in the heart and demanded I bleed.

She might as well have been fucking poison, but I would have drunk her anyway.
That was the kind of obsession I had for her.
I knew how it would end-total devastation.

A war zone of Broken bones and bleeding souls.
I should have hated her, but that's the funny thing about love-it’s out of your control.
Even when it leaves you with two black eyes, you beg for more.

People are afraid of the unknown, but I've never feared death, and love was no different.
She was going to destroy me, and I was going to let her. It was a game that could only end one way-a slow and torturous death.
