Truth or Dare is the final book in the Dare to Try trilogy and should only be read after Dare You and Dare Me.

Lieutenant Kieran Bailey never saw his life anywhere but the bustling streets of Chicago—but then again, he never saw his life with a boyfriend, either. That all changed when he fell in love with bombshell CEO Sebastian “Bash” Vogel.

But it’s one thing to fall i

Oh well that was all ends up smexy and full of loving.

Ella and Brooke pulled out all the stops for this concluding part to what's been a really enjoyable series from the two and - finally! - a happy ending for the wonder that is Sebastian Vogel aka Bash.

I've loved Bash since he first arrived in Brooke's excellent South Haven series and it was obvious he was going to need someone special. Enter Kieran Bailey. I have to say, I'd not seen it coming but over the last two books, they've proved beyond

Fantastic conclusion to this wonderfully sweet trilogy. Truth or Dare concludes the epic unexpected opposites-attract love story between Kieran and Bash. Truth or Dare completes all of the remaining story threads in an unapologetically sweet and earnest manner that pulls all the emotional stops along the way.

Bash and Kieran are perfect for one another and seeing them finalize their plans for their life together was a joy

Bash + Kieran #3

Remember how book #2 ended?
Bash and Kieran spent some amazing days on Bash's island -
but Kieran has to go back home to Chicago, right?
And now they don't know how their lives should look like.
They want nothing more than to be together, but where??
Chicago? Bash's island?
Who has to give up their home and friends and family?





This was the perfect final book for Bash and Kieran!
It takes them a while to get to that happy end

That could be my whole review honestly. I absolutely adore them. There's something about the ease to this story, how it flows and how honestly I have felt like this for the entire trilogy - Bash and Kieran are just so perfect and meant to be. It might not look like that from first glance, but these to are just IT for each other. That's how I have felt reading this trilogy. It's just sweet and FUN and so-so-sexy (seriously, Bash in some of those outfits!)

"I'd gone full sailor for the occasion, with white flared pants, a navy and white striped fitted shirt, and a matching sailor hat. Fab-u-lous."

Well, I think that just about sums up the conclusion to this feel-good trilogy from Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank. Truth or Dare was FAB-U-LOUS!

All the loose ends are tied up beautifully, the Bailey brothers and their partners from Chicago, as well as Bash's buddies from South Haven figure strongly, Bash is as hilarious as ever, Kieran and Bash are as

This is all about the happily ever after. These two sexy men will figure out their future and then make it happen.

It’s hot! It’s sweet! It’s love for Bash and Kieran. This is the end of their story but just the beginning of their forever.

It’s a light read with so many happy moments to share and cherish. No drama, just a whole lot of love and a uniting of two lives.

A great MM trilogy with sassy Bash and super sexy Kieran and a whole host of wonderful side characters. They will definitely leave yo

#Bashan's story came to its wonderful conclusion in Truth or Dare, and for me it was just one beautiful page after another

I loved that even while Kieran and Bash have some big, life changing decisions to make, there is no OTT, unnecessary drama, no stupid miscommunications, nothing that will have you pulling your hair out.

They acted like the two adults in love, making a life together - just like they should.

'It still struck me as incredible that not only had I fallen for a man I never would've thought I had a chance with, but he'd fallen for me too.'

Truth or Dare sees the conclusion to the Dare To Try series and holy WOW!! does it end with a spectacular bang!

It picks up with Kieran back into Chicago, doing what he does best and fighting fires. I was in a fit of giggles through this, I absolutely adore the humour Ella and Brooke bring to their books. Kieran is in limbo, waiting to hear back from

Sigh! I absolutely loved Bash and Kieran’s story. There wasn’t anything I didn’t love about the conclusion, other than it had to end! I loved how they worked through tough decisions together and without drama and angst! I loved Kieran’s all in attitude once he realized Bash was it for him. He didn’t shy away from his feelings and Bash treated him like the Prince he was. These two together were smoking hot! Their story has been great fun, not only getting to know Kieran and Bash more, but being a ...more

I was absolutely thrilled to read book three, Dare To Try. Such an awesome unbelievable final novel of is most wonderful series. Written by the most fabulous authors, Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine. Truth or Dare is the final novel of this series to love and simply enjoy!

Picking up after from the second novel, Dare to Try we find Kieran who has returned back to his life In Chicago. He is once again fighting fires. Although Kieran is still stuck with his strong feelings

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is the third book in the series, and be very clear this is definitely one which should only be read after the previous two! Personally I would recommend reading all the linked books across the Bailey family, and probably start even earlier - but then I am a huge fan of these talented authors and love how their stories all have connections!

I was so ready to see how Kieran and Bash would find their permanent home, set

I have a small, tiny confession to make: I pre-ordered this book as soon as I found out I could. I don't even know when that was, but I was so excited to read the third book in this trilogy after loving "Dare Me" and "Dare You" so much that I thought I was going to explode with anticipation before "Truth or Dare" came out... and then I got the wonderful opportunity to review it in ARC format. So that meant I was getting the extreme privilege of reading and reviewing this

Kieran Bailey is the born and bred Chicago firefighter with a strong bond with his two brothers. He always thought he was straight, but he apparently just had not met the right person yet. Now the Bailey boys make a trifecta of men who have found love with another man...and he is totally happy with that. He is hardworking, honest, caring, and devoted.

Sebastien Vogel is a rich and successful CEO and bold, vibrant, and unapologetically himself. He is a fashionista that looks just as good in a sui

Well folks the blurb really says it all when it comes to book three in the sexy AF Dare to Try series...

"How do you choose between everything you've ever known and everything you've ever dreamed of?"

And that's the rub isn't it. Kieran has lived his entire life in Chicago. His family is there and I am not just including the Bailey brothers in that statement. His firehouse is like a second family to him and the choice to pick up and leave is not an easy one. But as we all know, there is just

Truth or Dare is an absolute joy. I had as much fun reading it as Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine seemed to have writing it. There isn't an ounce of sadness nor is there any doubt that Bash Vogel and Kieran Bailey were made for each other. The ease with which Kieran fit into Bash's world was something to celebrate. I loved how he accepted his boyfriend's penchant for the outrageous, knowing deep down there was an enormous heart that only beat for him.

Sexy. Swoony. Sweet. Hot. Loving. Funny. Wonderful. So many words to describe Bash and Kieran’s story and none of them are exactly right. I loved this trilogy by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine so much - it was unexpected but made me laugh, smile, cry and fall in love with these two characters even more with each new book.

Bash and Kieran had to make a big decision in this book and I was so curious to see where they would go with it. There wasn’t a wrong choice to make, but someone’s life was going

Truth or Dare is book three and the last instalment in the Dare to Try series by the dynamic duo of Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine. Ladies, all I can say is you exceeded every expectation and dream with this stunning conclusion to Bash and Kieren’s story. I could not put this book down. I could not stop thinking about them. The description of Bash throughout the series was so explicit, I have a very clear picture in my head of what he looks like. Everything about this story, I breathed with them. ...more

After Kieran goes back to Chicago, his and Bash's future is on both their minds. Can they figure things out, be on the same page (and the same location) to make their relationship work?

The short answer - yes. And they do it with laughs, love, and intense, intense passion. I loved this conclusion of their story. His brothers, their friends, they all come together in a very sweet way, and now I have high hopes they'll live together happily, forever. An epic epilogue w

Truth or Dare is the final book in the Dare to Try series by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine. A part of me was worried by the way this storyline was made into a trilogy – I feel like it happens too often when it is not necessary – but I cannot deny how much I enjoyed this one. Sure, a part of me believes three books was unnecessary. At the same time, I enjoyed all the feels I was hit with throughout.

A superb final story. This did not disappoint at all, was such a delight to read from start to finish. Kieran is definitely my favourite Bailey brother and I’m definitely going to be rereading this trilogy again. The book is full of sassy dialogue and sharp humour. These two adore each other and it feels really authentic throughout. The heat is top level, and you would be hard pressed to find a couple with as much chemistry as these two, they definitely give Logan and Tate a run for their money. ...more

Kieran and Bash getting their HEA is everything you need in your life. If you’re looking for angst, look elsewhere. This is two guys finding the sweet spot and navigating what forever looks like once they’ve found the one. It has all the sass of Bash that I’ve come to love, the snark of Sean (because this is like a Bailey brother reunion), and all of Kieran’s singular driven personality. When he does something, he does it to the best of his ability. Lol. This one has some UNFORGETTABLE moments o ...more
