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 am so smitten with this story. I’m a huge fan of S.L.Scott’s rockstar stories and Dare has become one of my favourites to date by this author. I absolutely loved it.

The heat and chemistry between these two was addicting and all-consuming. It had all the feels and it had all the heat. As their journey progressed, these two fall deeper and deeper for each other. We see different sides to each character and just when it couldn't get any more intense, there are curve balls which had me craving mor

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

When a SL Scott book hits my kindle I tend to release a happy sigh because I know I'm about to get hours of entertainment and enjoyment. There's something about her rockstar men that I just can't get enough of. Dare is all man, all bad boy. His charm and sinful, devilish ways is something no woman can walk away from once his sights are set. His eyes land on Weatherly, and believe you me, she's looking right back at him. She likes what she sees, as does Dare. They have an instant connection. A co ...more

The first time Weatherly (Pepper) and Dare (Rob) met, filled my heart with love and tenderness and it was such a beautiful and memorable scene❣
It was destined to find each other and more than a decade later to finally begin their amazing journey.

Dare was not the usual bad-boy rock star. He was a great character inside out and contrived to steal a piece of my heart.
Weatherly had her wings clipped and was micromanaged by her family, until she met Dare and then she blos

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.

Such a cute meet/greet as children! And from there it was written in the stars -- a beautiful and lyrical story between an eastsider and a westsider. One who had it all (or so it seemed) and one who barely scraped by (but knew true friendship and family). One a lawyer in the making and the other a struggling musician. Family angst and ugly jealousy reigned supreme. A fantastic story that kept me drawn to each page with the ups and downs that confronted two young lovers.

""We're a whirlwind romance." "No, babe. We're a hurricane in the making.""

With Dare S.L. Scott created another amazing addition to her rockstar romance collection.
Its easy to love characters and the perfectly paced slow burn romance make this book just adorable.
Dare and Pepper are a perfect match and I love their dynamic and how the just feel together.

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.

This isn't the first book by S.L Scott that I have had the pleasure to read, and just like many of her others, it went off with a bang.
S.L has a way with her words that'll suck you in from the very first page and Dare: A Rock Star Hero was definitely a MUST READ.

That's a Dare you'll willingly take.

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).

And I'm so glad I did, because, remember when I said above how rockstar romance is overrated and overused. Well, I totally forgot a

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

SL Scott does it again. When I dive into one of her books I have no doubt that I'm going to fall in love...and fall in love I did with the swoony, sexy rocker Dare. He's smart, talented and pure man candy. Deep down he has a heart of gold and once he sets his sights on Pepper, his broken heart starts to mend.

Do you believe in fate?! I believe that Weatherly was meant to find Robert, aka Dare in the most unexpected of places. She's sweet and honest, her family always having a

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!

It’s clear just how much Weatherly Beck has missed out on due to her p

Review by Jen Skewes

Dare is a story about two people from opposite sides of town. Dare Marquis being the one from the wrong side of the tracks. He is a musician, who is living paycheck to paycheck. His band plays at a bar every week but they are still waiting for their big break.

Weatherly is the rich girl whose family has so many expectations when it comes to her life. At this point she is not in control of her life and her future. Once she finishes law school, her life has been planned

I mean, who doesn’t love a cocky, hotter than hot rock star and the girl that can bring him to his knees. All it took was one look for Dare and Weatherly to know they wanted each other. But they will soon figure out that one night is not enough for the passion that burns within them both.

I loved the evolution of these characters. Like with every S.L. Scott book I read, I could not put this down! From the first page to the very last, I was hooked. These characters had layers upon layers that mad

Do you believe in destiny? Do you believe in love at first sight? Do you believe that love conquers all? Do you believe everything happens for a reason? These and many more questions come out of this story. Are you a product of your environment? Are you who you surround yourself with? Lastly is everyone entitled to happiness and dreams?

I have to tell you from the moment I read the prologue I was hooked and 100% invested in the story of Dare and Weatherly. He is the rockstar hero you’re looking f

This story grabbed my attention from the very first chapter and held it until the very end. I don't keep it a secret that Rock Star romances are my Kryptonite, and I can confidently say that Dare is up there with my favourites.

Dare and Weatherly's backgrounds couldn't have been any more different growing up, but once they met their attraction and connection to each other didn't care which postcodes/zipcodes they lived under. I admired both characters immediately. There is more to their story th

He's from the wrong side of the track and she's an upcoming Lawyer, money and privilege her norm. A sweet girl, who has followed her parents wishes most of her life.

She can't resist him, he see's her, for the first time in her life someone really get's her, makes her feel alive, makes her want more !

He know's she is special, he knows he wants her, but will she want him, will he ever be good

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!

Two characters that would have never met without the love of architecture and chance. Now,

Sometimes you just can't help but fall for a story that captures your heart word by word. It took me some time but it was worth the rollercoaster ride. There were some things in the story that took me by surprise and didn't see coming. A rockstar love story you don't want to miss!

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. Thei

As it's at the beginning they are just a great band with a great following in pubs and clubs. Now don't get me wrong you get all the same vibes. But with this there is a sense of not being enough.

Always interested in the arts, S.L. Scott grew up painting, writing poetry and short stories, and wiled her days away lost in a good book and the movies.

With a degree in Journalism, she continued her love of the written word by reading American authors like Salinger and Fitzgerald. She was intrigued by their flawed characters living in picture perfect worlds, but could still debate that the world
