Warning, this review will be just one big rant because I just finished the book and I am angry.

This story started off well and I was actually really into it. It all went downhill from there, though. So much drama happened throughout the book and it made me so frustrated I wanted to pull out my hair. It seemed like every time some drama was resolved there was immediately new drama in it's place. It got really annoying and I ended up skimming most of the end.

So many things were going on at one ti

I received a copy in exchange for my honest opinion. This does not influence my opinion in any shape or form.

After finishing this book all I can say is that I am angry. Like my best friend has the ranting text messages to prove how angry I was about this book.

It didn’t start off too strong for me, I felt like there was a lot of unnecessary drama and sometimes I caught myself rolling my eyes at things. I even considered putting it down all together because I just couldn’t deal with all
This story is exactly what you think it is going to be - drama, drama, drama - right until the end. Then it gets (in my opinion) so unnecessarily and totally fucked.

I've read reviews for this story that say they understand why the author had to end it that way. No. Just no. It was like shameless feeling wrenching with no obvious purpose to the overall story. No.

That is all.

That one love that's worth it...
I was a Dash fan from the beginning, ready to grab my silver glitter and and wear my custom DASH t-shirt on race day. He is talented in his chosen field, and in the bedroom too. He has a few people cheering him on, and a few that don't want him to succeed. Which ones will Tabatha listen to? Those that warn her against him, or the one that whispers sweet nothings in her ear and lights her body on fire? With interfering exes, friends, and family members they struggl

Where oh Where do I begin with this one. Dash is the first book I have read by Shantel Tessier and I loved it. Her writing reaches out and grabs the reader from the very first page and doesn't let go.

Erik "Dash" Dashling lives for speed. He rides hard and crazy and parties just the same. When one last stunt lands him in the slammer again, he is given a get out of jail free card if he will sign with Johnny Knight and race motorcycles for him. Something that has always been his dream.

DASH was previously a novella series, I'm glad Shantel Tessier decided to switch it over to a complete book. I couldn't even tell it used to be multiple parts, the story flows very smoothly. I found the plot to be very absorbing, once you start you can't put it down; it's FULL of twists and turns. I wasn't sure what to expect next! I was happy to see that even though the characters are your typical cuddly alpha and stubborn heroine, it wasn't your average 'happily ever after' story. The ending w ...more

I am so emotional right now. the ending of this book had thrown me right out.

Don’t get me wrong I loved the story it ticked all my boxes. I fell in love with Dash and Tabatha’s story I was rooting for them all the way through, I really didn’t see that ending coming..

It is very ansty. A couple times i was shouting at my kindle. Tab and Dash really are great together. the chemistry is hot.. the story flows perfectly and is very steamy in parts. The story is well written and it will have you turnin

This book killed me in the most beautiful way...

DASH is an amazing book with an indescribably beautiful story and amazing characters that will steal your heart.

It is very well-written and the characters couldn’t be greater than they already are.

Most of the time, when I have high expectations from the books, I end up disappointed or at the very least, the standards are not met.

Not in this case.

Shantel Tessier wrote an incredible book that should put her in the A-List, if she’s not already there!

I was given an ARC for an honest review. So-- I'm going to be honest. I loved the first two volumes that were originally released as novellas. I couldn't wait to get my hands on Volume 3. I can safely say this book was NOT was I predicted or expected, and that's what I love the most about it. This story is REAL and RAW and portrays "love" as it is in real life. This book made me sad but in the end I realized for Tabatha and Dash is was never about their ending.. It was about their story! :) giv

I can't rate this book-not now, maybe not ever. I am just so goddamn pissed off right now. It's one thing to rob me of an HEA, I can ALMOST live with that, but I fucking HATE when authors pull this shit on me. There is a reason I love the escape books provide me, even the dark ones, and this is NOT it-especially for a romance. Why put them through everything they went through to end it this way?!

I do not want to write any spoilers but didn't like the ending....the book was awesome I just wish it ended differently.

I just loved this book. My emotions are all over the place with this book. Even days after reading this book I still can not get my thoughts together enough to write this review..

Shantel has been one of my favorite authors. I have read the Undescribable series and I absolutely loved it. I actually devoured every single book as they became available.

Now, even though I loved Slade and Samantha in the Undescribable series, I have to say that I loved Dash and Tabatha even more and my heart literally shattered with this whole novel and how Dash actually risked everything over the love he had for Tabatha.

Dash is a man that will have you weak in the knees and swooning. He is a up and coming motorcycle racer that lives on the wild side. Never in his wildest dreams did he know that he would fall for his new boss's daughter, or that he would be fully consumed by her.

Tabatha just left a year long relationship and now she is ready to find herself again. Never did she think attending a party she w

I originally read Dash volumes 1&2 as serials. I loved the storyline and the little cliffhangers were great. I then heard that it would be released as a whole story in one and couldn't resist signing on , I had to know how this story ended.

I honestly don't know how to start this review. I don't even know if I have words for this review. I will say this is the first book I have read from this author. I have been sitting on this review for a week and two days. And this book has been with me the whole time. I can't really remember a time a book actually stuck with me that long. I mean sure books have stuck with me but at most a few days.

I loved Eric/Dash, as he likes to go by, right away. He tries to be your typical cocky bad boy.

I received this ARC from the author for a review today. Let me start with this: I LOVE DASH!!! Dash and Tabitha have one of those relationships that should never have worked out. The way it starts gives every indication that this is going to be a short, short novella. But Shantel brings the story of these 2 characters full circle. I do mean full circle.

Tabitha is one of those women

Lord almighty I can't even began to tell you how this book completely gutted me.

I went through so many emotions while reading this book that it's hard to justify in words just how well written this book it.

Having read and reviewed the two serialised books I was eager to get the full story and conclude Tabatha and Dash's story.

*****WARNING Hot bike racer, Hot sex and ANGST in spades*****

Dash and Tabatha don't have it easy, outside forces are out to get them both, whether it's their scheming ex's or their families and even the media, the couple have got a lot to go through in this book and some of it was quite emotional to read.

Tabatha and Dash both have issues, Dash has abandonment issues stemming

Tabitha is a girl who is lost in herself, feeling weak and overlooked but determined to get back to her old self. Dash is strong and confident, sees things for what they are. He helps her realize she's more, stronger than even she knew.
