I Dare You Review

Holy. Freaking. Hell! I don't even know where to start. This book was absolutely riveting! It was intense and suspenseful and gripping. It was full of twists and turns that you won't see coming. Get ready to lose a day because you won't be able to put this book down. Austin and Cole were amazing together! The chemistry and push & pull between them was fiery hot. Their story was completely addicting and I just could not get enough.

Intense heat, shocking twists and edge of your seat suspense that will leave you addicted to their depravity. It’s dark and sexy. This series is so many things and I loved them all! I could not get enough. I have read this before, but it was even better the second time around as I binged all the way through and fell in love with this series all over again.


This story is such a roller coaster ride and I loved every minute! Love, deceit, suspense and forever. I was totally consumed from t

Holy goodness!!
This series is absolutely brilliant. Bully romance at its best.
Mystery, adventure, danger, scorching chemistry and passion.
Cole and Austin were exploding together. The author created an amazing set of characters, filled to the brim with heat and emotion.
The writing is off the charts captivating and you won't be able to put your Kindle down.
If you are looking for a new addiction to sink your teeth into, then look no further.
I recommend it. Don't miss out.

this one just blew my mind!!!! I mean, what does it say about me , that i fell in love with a heroine because of her extra talent of disposing off bodies!!!😂😂😂😂

RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

"it doesn't. Just making small talk."
"I prefer when I thought you were trying to kill me over small talk ", she snaps.
I smile. Yeah,there's something about Austin Lowes that I like. A lot

When I first saw this series, let me mention, i was not to keen to read it because it didn't seem like the type

Shantel has given us SUCH a treat- all three books in the series PLUS a delicious novella featuring our two couples. And for a great price?! What more can a girl ask for!

I LOVE THIS SERIES- and while I love everything Shantel writes, I think it will always be my favorite. I can not get enough- so it was fun to revisit the world that made me fall in love with Shantel’s writing. The Dare You series characters are incomparable- they are twisted, dark, radically imperfect, and depraved. The sharks a

BOOK 1 - This book was really intense, alot went on, turns and twist, but nothing too dramatic.
I loved Cole, he was dark, broody and hot! His character is really interesting and appealing. What made it better is that the book has a good storyline with amazing side characters. The book ends with a cliffhanger, and I'm excited to see how Shantel continues this, lovely writing by her!

BOOK 2 - This book was a really great follow up to t

No matter how many times I read this series, I never get bored. And I always seem to find something different that either shocks me or cracks me up.
Reading the boxset as a whole was certainly no different.
The bonus content was (As expected) epic, and loved how the author tied some of her worlds together yet again.
Hopefully the handiness of having all the books in one place helps introduce more readers to the sharks as they deserve to be everyone favourite read.

The Dare series in one! That’s the best!

If you love dark romance, and possessive alpha men that makes your jaw drop...totally worth the read. One of my favorite series by this Author. Incredibly well written, and twist-fully addicting. You won’t be able to take breaks. A definite binging all weekend kind of read.

Amazing series with a bada$$ heroine!! Austin is nothing like any heroine you’ve read before and Cole is perfect for her!! This series pulls you in from Chapter 1 all the way thru. You’ll be afraid to put it down. And the bonus?! Definitely an awesome read that will leave you wanting even more of these two. It was nice catching up on their lives but as always you want more!! Love it!!!

6 crazy, beautiful stars 🌟
I don't know if I'm more in love with Cole or Deke?
They are both ruthless and conniving,  dominant and charismatic, sexy and gritty.
Cole is the alpha male you hate to love and love to hate. He smirks and nods but is always watching and waiting.
Deke has his charms and idiosyncrasies, he smiles when angry and scowls when he's playful or working out a plan.
This series is like a puzzle, you don't know what the full picture is until you put in the last piece.
And that bonus

This collection is SUCH a must read!!!!!
It has all THREE books PLUS bonus content at the end that you cannot read anywhere else. And those chapters were EVERYTHING!!! It felt like old times reading Deke, Demi, Austin and Cole. I love them so much! And that ending!!!! OMFG. Just trust me. You need to read this to find out. 5 stars and MORE for these sharks and their women!!!

This series collection has all 3 books: I Dare You, I Promise You, and If You Dare along with bonus content!! That bonus content was short but angsty and filled with anger and the chemistry between Cole and Austin I can't get enough of.

My absolute favorite part of this series is the aggressive, angry dynamic between Cole and Austin. Their relationship seems toxic but it's jus

What's better than one book about the Sharks? How about three plus a novella! The Dare Collection gives us all the hotness that is the sharks!

I Dare You is dark, dangerous, delicious and dirty. Austin and Cole are fire! They make the pages burn in such an amazing way. Tessier leaves me turning page after page needing more of them. It doesn't matter that I've read before. The twists and turns, lies and betrayal make me not want to stop.

I Promise You gives us more of Cole and Austin. Just when yo

This series is a must read!

Book 1 - This book really sucked me in. It starts with 17 year old Austin moving in with her father, who she doesn’t get on with. One her first night she witnesses a group of guys killing someone, however, she gets caught by two of them, namely Cole, she catches his eye and he decides she will be his, to toy with and blackmail.
Cole is something else, he’s a complete a**hole! And you will hate him, but you will also love him. He’s possessive, evil, calculated but he a

Book 1- Cole and Austin. Oh freaking man. What a page turning, mind blowing, all nighter of a storyline!
I don’t even have words, but I figure a few will work here.
Read this. Let Tessier take you on the ride she took me on.
This book took me 100 mph from beginning to finish, and never once hit the brakes!

Book 2- I floved getting more of GWS this time around!
If you didn’t read book 1, then stop what you’re doing and check that one out NOW!

Start with " I Dare you" the boys play a game of Dare. Some are harmless, others illegal. Along the time, there's nothing harmless on their Dare. The Dare turn more dangerous and illegal. It's either gonna get them self killed or thrown to jail.

They messed up along the way. Some of them fell in love with the wrong girl. And some of them died at the hands of others.
It's sick game they were going to end. And finish it is exactly what they had to do. Even if that meant killing one of their own. T

A series filled with jaw dropping chapters bringing every single emotion to surface. Amazing characters, more steam than anticipated and danger. We all love a little danger. These books are bound to be addictive so'll be obsessing long after you've finished!

Bonus content in this box set too was definitely needed, and very, very intriguing! Shantel is a writer who captures not only your mind but your soul too.

I Dare You! ★ ★★ ★★!
Holy Moly! 🖤This book just took everything you could possibly want in the dark and twisted romance genre. Tossed in a world of rich high-school seniors playing an eff’d up version of “serve up some justice for you” “I Dare You” and call it a game. So this was the “Love story” about Cole and Austin. But there was so much to it and so many characters introduced to us, this author just set us up for many more books to come in this series. HELLS YEAH!! This book was e
ARC received from the author. Voluntarily reviewing and all opinions are objective and my own. I had read each book individually before this, so this is a review of all three books in summary, as well as the bonus content.

I Dare You:

It just pulls you right in from the first line and refuses to let you go. I went through so many feelings while reading, with fear being at the forefront for most of it. Some happiness in there, more fear, sadness and then ending happy.

ETA I’ve read them all and got my answers

A new crazy and twisted and complicated read that i absolutely love because of the badass female character and also the powerful GMS team, each one more enigmatic than the others and all the twists and turns that this book has kept my mouth opened till the edgy ending. There are a lot of questions that need answers and hopefully, we will get them in the next books.

This book seriously threw me into a WTF loop! I knew what I was getting into when I picked it up but I had no idea how truly dark and violent it would be! Cole was a twisted, cold blooded vigilante and Austin was his female counterpart down to her core. THIS BOOK WAS THRILLING & CHILLING!

There were a LOT of characters in this read, which made it hard at first to figure out who was who. So much chaos, deception, secrets, scheming, etc. You never really knew who to trust! Every

This book has the WOW factor. It is dark, gritty, twisted, intense, and suspenseful with a lot of hotness. It is a fast-paced read. Shantel Tessier had me from the start.

One of my absolute FAVORITE series’ that kept me on the literal edge of my seat and continually guessing!
Book 1 – The beginning of this story was very confusing, I felt like I was missing a lot on why Cole and his friends have the club and the dares they do in relation to the accident. Austin and her past also intrigue me; while they talk about her past on the surface and assumptions, but not everything was discussed. This storyline was definitely twisted, with both Cole and Austin having some
