    Too good for any guy from the east side.

    Her life is planned out, so I don’t have a right to step in and mess up her future. But when I look into her sapphire blue eyes and taste the innocence on her lips, I know we’re meant to be more than a one-night stand.

    I want her to take a chance on me, to take a chance on us. She may not be a damsel in distress, but I Dare her to let me be her Hero.

    I couldn’t put it down.
    Incredibly romantic and inspiring. Oh man, I did feel the love in the air, feeling the magic operating and seeing their love blossom so breathtaking, pure and it felt so real.
    Everything seemed to fade away when I was reading Dare, a beautiful story about these two souls who had finally found each other, who fought together against all odds to achieve their dreams on their own terms, writing such a magnificent melody.

    I am a big fan of SL Scott’s books and especially her rocker series so I was excited when I heard about Dare. It did not disappoint. Dare will give you all the feels of friendship, love, angst and warm your heart.

    Dare is a bad boy rocker, not looking for a girlfriend or a commitment. Weatherly is from the good side of town, studying to be a lawyer and trying to find her place in the world. They meet for a night or so they think. When their worlds collide, they will never be the same again. Their

    One thing I can always count on when reading S.L. Scott's Rockstars is falling in love with not only the main character, but the entire band - that hasn't changed. Dare captivated me from the first page til the last.



    Dare introduces us to a new Austin Band, the Heroes, and brings us the story of Dare and Weatherly. Let me first say that I love how on point Scott always is when it comes to bringing to life band members. I don't kno

    I’m a major fan of tattoos, so it's a given I found the Hero attractive from the beginning.

    Tattoos wrap around his exposed forearms and trickle onto the top of three of his knuckles. Getting a closer look, I notice how anger infiltrates the black ink, contradicting the grin on his face.

    I'm using this gif for shits and giggles, because the dude in the gif is not as sexy as Dare. LOL.

    Love & Lavender Book Review
    Oh my freaking DARE MARQUIS!!! This book is a beefy, epic story of fate, passion and written like sheer poetry! Every word that Suzie uses is incredibly poignant. Jammed packed with ALL THE FEELS, every sentence serves a purpose to grab a hold and not let go. I was trapped for hours in this whirlwind romance that was destined from the start. I felt the connection from the get-go and it's FREAKING INTENSE!

    Dare and Weatherly are book perfection. That is what SL Scott gives readers. It gives all the feels we love in romance books. Swoon, chemistry, honesty, a little conflict, amazing resolution. I was addicted to this book and never wanted it to end!

    Dare and Weatherly both has issues from the past that affect how they are. They are drawn to each other right from the tart and it all makes sense. The book is not rushed. Dare is such an incredible man that you just fall in love with him. From his rela

    Weatherly and Dare meet in a bar where the band is having a gig.
    She comes from the Westside, where money is no problem.
    He comes from the Eastside, where money is always tight.
    Two worlds collide. Can they make it work?

    Weatherly is a beautiful young lady, smart, and has a life / future mapped out for her by her family. Until she meets Dare. Hot sexy singer in a bad boy rock group. They have an instant connection, and it’s great to see their love growing more and more throughout the book!

    Some things are fated in life. One random day a boy and a chatty girl met and left an impression on each other. One day in a bar a rock star was drawn to a pretty girl at the bar. The rest is history, well with some angst thrown in.

    This story has so much depth of two people trying to live their best lives and when their paths intersect their hearts meld into one. Against family and a friends they blaze their own paths together and independently.

    Dare is one of those books you could fall into and read all day, as you get lost in the lives of these characters. Dare and Weatherly meet when they were extremely young just once at a chance meeting. But they meet as Rob and Pepper. Now years later, they meet once again by chance or is it Fate. Unfortunately, their minds don't remember but their hearts seem to know each other which they find weird.

    From its charming opening scene to its near-perfect epilogue readers will find this a decadently delightful romance showcasing the theme of opposites attracting as Dare “Robert” Marquis and Weatherly “Pepper” Beck had me rooting for them every step of the way. Add in Dare’s rock star lifestyle and I was even more drawn to this story as his bandmates also left an indelible mark on me that added to this story’s sensuality and has me hoping we’ll see more of these secondary rockers in the future.

    Based on the number of Rockstar romances I’ve read, I feel like I can call myself a rocker romance groupie, and frankly, I don’t see anything wrong with it because it’s not the rocker facade that always keeps me coming back to these arrogant, sexy alpha males, it’s the fact that there is so much more to these bad boys then they show on stage, and with the right woman, the guy beneath the persona is the one who rocks my world!

    Time and time again, I'm surprised by this author work. Reading her books is so refreshing and revitalizes me every time.
    For some reason, I feel that rockstar stories are overrated and overused (and I know I might be in a less number here), but when I saw Suzie Scott was writing us a rockstar, I took this Dare (cheap pun intended).

    Serendipity, coincidence, fate, or destiny. However you sum it up, Dare Marquis and Weatherly Beck were meant to be! They were born for each other and spent their lives just waiting to see each other again someday. I literally got chills and goose bumps as I read this story and little by little, tidbits were revealed into the beginnings of the characters and I couldn’t wait till they both realized what I already knew—sometimes life lays out a plan for us and we are helpless to fight against it.

    This book hits you like a hurricane! Dare will definitely sweep you off your feet alongside Weatherly, and I for one was happy to get swept away.

    Dare Marquis grew up in the poorer part of Austin, but now in his mid-twenties is having some moderate success with his band and sharing a house with them. His best friend Lennox is also in the band, and Lennox’s mother is a surrogate mother to him after the death of his own. He is charismatic both on and off stage, and has no lack of female attention.
