If You Dare by Shantel Tessier is finally here! If You Dare is the third book in the Dare Series. You don’t HAVE to read books 1 & 2 as the author has written this so it COULD be a standalone, BUT in my opinion, you most definitely SHOULD! Gahhh I have been highly anticipating this one and let me just say OMFGGGGG!!! I NEVER saw this one coming! Just when I thought I was figuring out what was happening next *BOOM* another secret was unraveled and I was back to square one! Shantel did an astounding job as far as the shock factor with this one because let me tell you, I was completely SHOCKED!
This review is gonna be short and sweet and a little vague lol, this is one of those books you HAVE to go into blind! But I will give you a little bit of a warning. If you have read I Dare You & I Promise You you will go into this one thinking you know what’s going to happen just like I did, and YOU WILL BE WRONG, just like I was! Every single theory I had come up with was blown all to hell! The plot is dark, twisted, and absolutely devious and you going to love every minute of it!
“Don’t fuck with me because you won’t survive it.”
Let’s start with Deke! I mean he’s Cole Reynolds best friend so you know he has to have a few screws loose himself but DAMNNN! I never could have anticipated just how dark, devious, and completely SAVAGE Deke actually is! Ya’ll are in for a treat with the delicious Deke Biggs!
Speaking of Cole Reynolds ❤️ Cole is still as dark and delicious as ever and still loves his sweetheart Austin with everything in him! I worried we weren’t going to see much of these two in Deke’s story but I was so wrong, they are a HUGE part of his story and I loved seeing what they were up to these days now that they are in Texas! Austin, GAHH MY GIRL! I love her, and I LOVE that even though she has become somewhat of a mother to little Lily she is still 100% BAD BITCH! She has proven time and time again that she is every bit of a shark as the guys, and she continues to do so in If You Dare!
Deke’s love interest… let me just say WOW! My favorite books are when the heroine is just as strong as the hero, or anti-hero in this case, and trust me when I tell you Austin isn’t the only bad bitch in this book! This girl is every bit as twisted as Deke! She gives him the type of challenge he needs to keep his interest, and she’s not afraid of his darkness she doesn’t want to change him, she wants him to be the savage that he is. The two of them together are like dumping gasoline on a fire! 🔥
“A beautiful mess and a demon.”
I feel in love with Shantel Tessier’s writing when I first read I Dare You but since reading, I Promise You and now If You Dare I am completely HOOKED! Shantel is still up and coming but she’s most definitely an author you need to watch out for, and one that I will most definitely ALWAYS one-click! I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next since this one left off with a “The End…For Now” I am really, REALLY hoping there is more to come from the GWS’s, maybe Shane or Bennett..? P.S. I STILL hate Becky with a passion!
Get ready ya’ll, the GWS’s are back together again!
“I’m not afraid of you,” I state, moving to my tiptoes. His hand keeps getting tighter, and my knees threaten to buckle. “That’s your first mistake.” He gives me a cruel smirk that makes him look like the beautiful bastard he is. My hands grip his wrist that holds me in place. “The … second?” He’s almost cutting my air off. “Playing me…”

My Review of I Promise You
My phone rings on my bed, and I look down to see Deke written across the screen. My heart begins to race with excitement.
“Hey?” I try to say calmly, but my high pitch gives me away. I turn, placing my back to
the door and bounce toward the windows. The falling rain making visibility nonexistent.
“What are you …?”
“Do you miss me, Becky?” he asks in greeting.
A cold chill runs up my spine at his tone. There was nothing affectionate about it. Just cold. Detached. “Of course, … I …”
“What if I said I wanted to see you?”
I swallow, and the hairs on my neck rise. “Deke.” I give a nervous laugh. “What do you
mean? I, uh, I’d love to see you, but you’re too far away.” Thank God. He sounds like a
serial killer calling his next victim. He’s probably drunk and playing some sick game with me.
“What if I told you I’m here?”
I whip around to face my bedroom door, my chest rising and falling quickly. “In Collins?”
My voice shakes.
He gives a dark chuckle, and my stomach drops as I watch a man dressed in black
jeans and a black hoodie move to stand in the doorway of my bedroom. His blue eyes
look me up and down, taking in my half-naked body, but he shows no sign of interest.
When they reach mine, I hear him whisper in my ear. “Your bedroom.” I drop the phone and run into my en suite bathroom. I slam the door shut and lock it. He begins to pound on it from the outside. “Stop,” I cry as I press my hands up against it, knowing he’s fucking with me. If he wanted in, that lock wouldn’t stop him. “Deke, please …”
The banging stops, and I flip on the light before taking a step back from the door. Tears
sting my eyes and my body shakes. What the fuck is he doing here? In Collins? My bedroom?
Other than my heavy breathing, silence now fills the room. I still hold my hands out in
front of me as I take another step back and bump into a hard surface. I gasp, spinning around only to come face-to-face with Cole Reynolds.
They tricked me.
The phone call was to distract me, allowing Cole into my bathroom. Where Deke knew
I’d run. He had been covering the door, there was no other escape option for me. His
emotionless blue eyes stare down at me. Cole has this way of making you feel cold
deep down in your bones. Like death coming to collect your soul. He’s come to drag me
to hell. To make me pay for my sins. My breath hitches and my heart hammers in my chest. “Cole …”
