Jason King is the worst.

Cocky. Frat boy. And the biggest bully around.

His family is richer than God and he thinks that makes him the king of Hannsett Island.

But he's not the only player on the board...

We've got our Knight-in-shining-leather, Donovan. My best friend and a loner with a heart of gold.

And then there's me...the Queen, obviously. Checkmate.

Except the chemistry

Discovered through Booktok from a post by the author and decided on doing a buddy read for this series.

Was the story exactly what I was expecting? No, but regardless it was still an enjoyable read (my book thoughts note on my phone had to of been a mile long- I swear.)

Wish it had been longer, but nonetheless..

The early 2000’s references were *chef kiss* & I was brought w/an overwhelming sense of nostalgia w/the mention of LW haha.

Couldn’t stand Jason’s Dad.. I’ll leave it at that as far as he go

Shut up! I loved this book so much 🥺🥺🥺

What’s the… I don’t want to ask what the kinkiest book you’ve read because that seems disingenuous and sensationalist. I guess what I’m asking is what is the most non-traditional romance novel you’ve read?

The two books that make up the Truth or Dare Duet, The Bully’s Dare and The Doctor’s Truth, by Adora Crooks are my first menage or “throuple” stories. I have to say I found them enlightening.

In #TheBullysDare, Kenzi is 18 spending her summer on Hansett Island, sunning herself on step dad number

completely got sucked into this book! It’s on the shorter side, but the story had me captivated and I was a bit miffed when I got to the end of the book realizing I now have to wait to find out what happens next!
Kenzi was incredible! I loved the friendship between her and Donovan. Donovan tugged at my heart. I always love the underdogs and that’s sort of what Donovan was, especially compared to Jason. Jason, however, was so much more complicated. He certainly wasn’t my favorite character in the
I tagged this as having a plus sized main character because Kenzi is referred to as curvy and does call herself fat but it actually feels more like she is someone who calls herself fat despite being only very "average" in size??

I did feel a little odd reading a book about teenagers but I knew the next book would come back to them as adults so it was easier to get through. I found myself like the charaters even though the book itself was only so-so for me. Enjoyable enough to come back for more w

- the plot was good but personally too short. The book should be longer because the end was rushed and the characters didn’t have time to develop
- the smut scene was really good and the others scenes
- I would just read the smut scenes or the scenes were they were intimate but the whole book not
- I didn’t like how the bully situation was handled like just he ate that stuff and everything is fine? No

This book was great. In this first of the duet we get THE BULLY'S DARE where we meet Jason, Donovan and Kenzie in a coming of age story where we see the three beginning to realize their place in the world and discovering their individual sexuality.

I recommend the 2nd in the duet as we are treated to THE DOCTOR'S TRUTH where the three are brought back together thirteen years later under unusual circumstances where a precious life hangs in the balance.

Don't waste your time

This book shouldn't be called an adult romance book as it's written about teenagers who just graduated high school & college plans/acceptance & scholarships are still being worked out. Additionally, aside from 1 MMF intimate scene toward the very end of the book I wouldn't even call this a romance but more of a-typical high school bullying & some high jinks.

This was a great short read, it is a little slow at first but then finally gets really good but then ends too quickly on the cliffhanger which was sad but I’m looking forward to the next part of this book. It has some great characters (King is my favourite) and the storyline is getting good. This is the first book I’ve read from this author and I really liked it. I read this book as an ARC.

The Bully’s Dare ( MMF ménage).
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book, but it definitely was GOOD!

I loved all of it! Three characters so different from each other, yet Donovan, Jason & Kenzi are great together. The pranks they pulled made me smile several times throughout the book.

Being first of a duet, it ends on a cliffhanger. I can’t wait to read the second book.
A really recommended read!

Amazing beginning

This is how it all starts. Three very unlikely people spend a summer together. They build a bond that will span more then a decade. A bond that is broken because of a common enemy. Three people too young to be in love but create a bond that can never be broken. This book was the start of an epic love story and I can’t wait to read the rest of it next.

The amount of references to Myspace and CDs confused the heck out of me until I realized this was set in the past. It was like a bonus backstory for book two which is really the story. I'm worried though because I came for a MMF romance and I am worried it is a MF story with just one spicy scene. But only book two shall spill the secrets! ...more

3.5 stars. MMF Romance.
POV for all 3 characters, which is actually nice.
Not much for spice, but pretty good character development.
Kenzi met Donovan and Jason during her summer on Long Island with Pearl/mom and Four . They both want to be doctors, but have very different socioeconomic backgrounds.
The ending was a surprise and I will continue with the next one.

This had so much anticipation in it. It wasn't what I was expecting, I thought it would have more? I feel like there was a lot of build up in some parts that weren't all that relevant and then the scenes where more context would have been nice and helpful, it was lacking. I'm not really a fan of the ending, but I realize why it's needed to lead in to the second book. 3 stars ...more

A quick read with a simple plot; I think this took me max 2.5 hours today. I am trying to read more books about polyamorous relationships which brought me to it. I am invested enough in the characters and their relationship that I'd like to read the next one, I think. We'll see! Reading this felt like the equivalent of bingeing a few episodes of Degrassi. I also really hate the book cover. ...more

Its a shame its a "cliff hanger"... Love how the friendship blooms between the three main characters. Bully, nerd and the outcast, i think there is a novel there some where but will only to be told in the next novel? ...more

A fairly good book

This book is one of those where you have to get another book to find out what happens, I hate that kind of stuff. It's not a bad book but nothing special otherwise.

I probably say this a thousand times, but I really didn't expect to enjoy this as much as I did.

I loved the trope of opposites attract, how they all came together, my only downside was the cliffhanger ending but I get it, cliffhangers exist.

I downloaded A Bully's Dare as a free ebook from Amazon. I enjoyed this story much more than I expected. The relationship between the characters was effortless and intriguing. I can't wait until I read the next book. ...more
🔥 This is more like a YA novel with one minor scene.

It was fine, but it felt more like it was the build up to the second book which will be the actual plot. After finishing it, it feels like it was more of a prologue than the actual book itself.

I actively love the dynamic here. I'm not sure how I feel about the ending though. I love to hate a toxic parental figure though, and when their toxicity is exposed, *chef's kiss*. This one was super short and I went through it really quickly. ...more

I'm giving this a 4 because I really liked the relationship between Kenzi, Jason and Donovan, but I wish there had of been a little bit more drama to it. For an MMF it's fairly clean. Book ends on a bit of a cliffhanger. I will definitely be reading the next one. ...more

I just couldn't put it down. It was amazing, although the ending made me cry. I need to know what happens next.
