    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 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 connection that reaches far deeper than just between the sheets. Nothing is as simple as it should be. Dare and Weatherly are from opposite sides of the world. He's from a world where he lives hard and fast. He has lived by his sinfully sexy voice that makes him a heartthrob to every woman in earshot. Weatherly has been living a more privileged life. She bad her entire future planned. Dare changes things. He wasn't among her plans. You know the best things about plans? Changing them and following your heart. Again, I feel a sigh coming on. Just a sweet and contentment feeling in my heart. Scott's writing is beautiful and she gives her characters life with a gorgeous story. These two were just lovely and so sexy together. I loved the connection they shared. It was an immediate response to each other and I was immediately into their story. I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.

    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. I seriously imagined his knuckles brushing over my cheeks along with other things.

LOL. I seriously imagined his knuckles brushing over my cheeks along with other things. Okay, enough about the tattoo’s or else I’ll drool throughout the entire review. The heroine catches her boyfriend screwing another girl and leaves. She then meets Dare, the Hero. Since I don’t know him from Adam and will never see him again, I have nothing to hide. “I walked in on my boyfriend having sex with another woman.”Usually, conversations bore me, but their's didn't. Some of the discussions with the back characters did, but the conversations with the main characters I enjoyed. I thought for a band member, Dare is sweet compared to the others I have read. Did I lose the opportunity? That smile, her laugh, the way her nerves got the best of her at times. Her beauty left me tongue-tied. I’ve never been drawn to a woman more than I was to her.Come to, mama, Dare. :)The story gets steamy in chapter sixteen. It's slow-moving, and some felt like filler, but because it was connecting the characters, I continued reading. The hot scene in chapter 16 is the first and the hottest in the entire forty chapters, and two epilogues. It's not really erotic, and further into the book, the details are cut short. “God, no. You feel incredible.” So right. Overwhelmed, my eyes beg to close. “I want to stay like this forever.”I'm a major fan of hotness. So, reading 'connection,' or 'sex' without details was disappointing. Dare is in a band, and he financially struggles. He's not the rich, typical hero you read in romance, which is why I had fallen in love with Dare. “I wanted to buy you breakfast. I just thought you should know that money’s not frivolous for me.” I notice how his eyes look around. He’s kind enough not to say anything regarding the apartment.All and all, I enjoyed the book. There were certain parts I skimmed. I guess that's bound to happen considering its forty chapters, and the angst was low. While the angst was low, the sweetness, character building, and connection were at an all-time high. This drama came in at the end, and everything broke loose. The heroine's parents are controlling, but after her ex cheated on her, and she met Dare, she found strength through Dare. The way Dare loved her, showed her, that the people in her life wasn't doing right by her. There are a few other women, other men problems. Well, women were mentioned in Dare's past, but that's it. As I mentioned before, Dare isn't the average boy band member, and he doesn't cheat. Even during their minor situation caused by the ex and family, he doesn't cheat. Her ex is the problem in the end. I don't know if the is cheating, so I'm adding it in as a spoiler. (view spoiler)["He hit me when I told him if he raped me he’d still never have my heart. That only belonged to Dare. He squeezed my cheeks so hard I thought he’d bust my teeth. Kissed me roughly.” (hide spoiler)]Also, you have the slut best friend that caused some drama, but it mainly came in at the end. What I loved was how Dare didn't cheat or abuse the heroine. I was able to fall in love with the Hero and not grow angry with him. I liked how even during the crazy drama at the end, their main focus was getting back together. I didn't like the epilogues since there wasn't too much growth. I was hoping Dare would've been financially stable and able to match the heroine. Also, I wished the epilogues would've dived deeper into their future, and I wish the steamy scenes were more detailed instead of the characters telling me they did the deed. Other than that, I enjoyed it, and after reading so many flops, I appreciate the authors hard for actually creating a decent hero who deserved the heroine, and for writing a sugary love story, with sweet characters. Dare was the perfect Hero.

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. The author wrote such heartfelt, honest and passionate story. Dare, this rock star hero, wounded by his past but trying not to let it determine the man he is today. A man used to be on the wrong side, a fighter and survivor, noble and kind, tough but so tender at times. That boy vibes, with a heart of gold, keeping his integrity, true to himself.A real hero, the one with strength, accepting his flaws and still learning about what life has to offer. And sometimes, it happens, that feeling about that someone that made you special but mostly a unique feeling that only your heart could recognize. Hitting you like that. Straight to the heart.The author managed to described it in those words, like the hurricane in the making, powerful and strong but also so fragile if you weren’t careful about it. And it felt it. So striking and indescribable somehow but so palpable, making me feel so much.Weatherly was more acting than living, putting everyone's needs before her own. Just raised to follow the legacy and family rules. A convenient bubble of security, until she met Dare, charming and hot, but feeling that instant connection, an easiness, something familiar but also unsettling. Finding someone who listened and care about her needs. Just to show her what was buried inside, to shine like it should be, for herself and not for the others.I’ve been caught on this whirlwind romance. They made my heart race. It was sweet and sexy, sensual and steamy and all the things, so much more. Characters that didn’t hide their feelings, learning from their mistakes, moving mountains for their loved ones. Mesmerizing and magnetic.I adored as much the main characters than the supportive ones, that I'm sure have so many beautiful stories to share, I hope they will at some point.Emotional without being too much, with a high level of swoon moments, damn I was sold! 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. I love this book on spades. Wholeheartedly. Madly. Deeply.

Dare Marquis is the bad boy rock star. Sinful, Hot as hell, a man you lust over for years to come. A voice like an angel but a look like a devil. Those words that flow out of his mouth are ones that have women's panties dropping to the floor the moment he opens his mouth. A single night with him would be heaven and hell all in one. Weatherly Beck just may be the woman who can tame Dare. She's beautiful, she is smart, and she has her life mapped out for her. Her future is bright and is ready for her, and is in hands reach, but that all changes the moment these two meet. Weatherly wanted a hot one night stand with Dare, but what she thought would be ONE night, turns into so much more. How could it not? When this man is everything she craves and Dare wants her for himself, and himself only. He wants to be her Hero. Will she dare to take a chance on him? After one night, all her well planned out life starts to come apart and she is left wanting more of him. But can anyone blame her? The heat and chemistry between these two was pulsating, addicting and all-consuming. Their one-night stand together turns into so much more. It was brilliant, it was all the feels and it was all the heat. As the book progresses we watch these two fall deeper and deeper for each other. We see different sides to each character and just when we think it couldn't get any more intense, the author goes and throws curve balls and has me craving more of these two.Even after the story came to an end... I was left wanting more. I loved it. I wanted to scream and beg the author to add more but at the same time, this was everything it should have been. The authors' well-written words sunk in deep and had my mind was on overdrive the entire way through the book and Dare? Well HOT DAMN... He's the bad boy every girl secretly longs for. A MUST READ!!5 Stars!

Well, I totally forgot about that, because even without realizing it, I was hooked to Dare and Pepper.It wasn't a typical rockstar romance where the hero is making a huge success, he has and obscene amount of money, he is rejecting shows and being cocky and arrogant.No. Dare and his friends/brothers were fighting for their space and paying their dues. They were extremely talented, but they were in that stage yet when they have to set a goal, work hard and believe in it. Life wasn't granted already.They made music for passion and played for their dreams. And that was so refreshing. They were rambuctious and loud, they were loyal and messy, they were passionate and real.Just like Weatherly/Pepper was. Dare struggled his whole life, but was always trying to overcame his issues. He was resilient and a survivor. He was rugged, but caring, he was cocky, but vulnerable.Weatherly had an easier life, at least financially. She had everythign she wanted and needed, but she never let that mold her. She was genuine, honest, pure, even surrounded by shallow and egoistic people.They couldn't be more different from the outside. But they couldn't be more alique in everything that mattered.Dare and Weatherly were each other's breath of fresh air. And together, they were my own breath of fresh air.They were so deep with such rich personalities. They touched each other's lives, and they touched me as well while I read them.Their connection was profound, their banter was quick and smart. Their chemistry was palpable and their feelings were so tangible and so real.The writing was exquisite, mixing enthralling dialogues, quiet developments and cathartic moments, always captivating and never letting the rhythm slow down, even in the calm scenes.Reading Dare was like eating a favorite desert. I couldn't get enough, I wanted more even before it ended, and even when I was full (aka, almost asleep), I knew I couldn't stop, because if I did, I was going to regret later.I gotta say, I'm stuffed. But I still crave another piece.

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 know how she always brings such compelling guys to the group and makes me want to know everything about them from the start - but obviously the main focus of this story is Dare. And Weatherly. I love how this story took the rockstar trope and spun it a bit to suit these characters, this isn't only a story about a rockstar - it's a story about Destiny and the people in our lives who bring us to the men and women we become. I loved the depth of both Dare and Weatherly's characters and how their story spanned more than just chemistry and connection and a blossoming love. You know a book is great, when you are thinking about it's characters long after you've turned the last page and left their world. That's how I felt for hours after closing my kindle on these two, thinking of Dare and Weatherly, and wanting more from this group.

    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 parents’ influence and dictates, but the one thing that I appreciated about how S.L. Scott crafted Weatherly’s character is that she may have allowed people to tell her what to do…to walk the path that was set out for her, but the moment she took back control, she refuses to give it back to people who didn’t deserve it or her. And while, yes, it may be a bit cliche with the whole good girl/bad boy relationship vibe that’s happening at the beginning of the story, but that’s only what brings them together, why they work…why they overcome their past choices as well as their negative influences is about so much more than just Weatherly taking a walk on the wild side and that idea is strewn throughout the pages of DARE. Dare may personify the edgy, rocker vibe who needs to have an attorney on retainer and who only wants instant gratification out of his time with the women who warm his bed, but he’s not that guy with Weatherly; she’s different from the start and SL Scott makes that fact abundantly clear with the way Dare treats Weatherly, the things he says to her, and the honesty that comes with wanting to be around one another, freely and wholeheartedly. I adore romances that illustrate how love doesn’t care about how much money someone has, their family pedigree, or what side of the ‘tracks’ they come from, even if they’re complete opposites…And, while society may care about those things and feel it necessary to judge, admonish, and protest, the heart wants what the heart wants and that’s truly all that matters, especially when a person’s character defines them way more than any dollar amount, posh address, or six-figure job could.Truly living…and loving is dangerous, which means that people need to be brave enough and dare themselves to step out of what they’re accustomed to and go all in, being bold, being completely themselves, and being those things without caring what others think, even those who have known them forever because if they question someone close to them then they don’t truly know what their heart wants or what their soul needs. But for Weatherly and Dare - their differences don’t dissuade them because their hearts were captured by one another long before they realized exactly who each other was and what they were willing to risk to be together.4.5 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews)

    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.

Though there were many trials and tribulations in their relationship, they worked through it all and came out the other side stronger than before. READ THIS BOOK! You won’t regret it.

    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 for and she is the smart lawyer to be still trying to find herself. Together they just try to make sense with one another.Can it work with so many trying to get in between? Well these are the burning questions. I do say burning because their chemistry is burning hot!Believe me you’ll get everything you’re looking for; romance, sadness, smiles, laughs, anger, and heat! We get reacquainted with former characters that we love from previous stories. I’ve read several books by this author and this one just fell into my favorite group by her. I don’t do spoilers because you can read the blurb and get the gist and I believe it’s not fair to the author. The whole point of reading a book is to discover the story and secrets for yourself. What I will tell you is that people should not be defined by zip code, either way. Things are not always the way they seem....thank goodness. This is a story that will touch your heart as well as your soul. It defines the line in the story of, “Beauty attracts the eye, but the soul captures the heart”. To the author I say well done, this is a beautiful story that captured my heart.

    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.

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 than just 'boy meets girl' and I loved that element. Dare stole my heart. He hasn't had an easy start in life but that hasn't stopped him from being a caring and passionate person. His bandmates are his family and I loved how much they supported each other and were there for each other. Weatherly has had everything she needs at her disposal and you may think that she is a lucky young lady to have such privileges, but believe me they came with a price. Both Dare and Weatherly are two individuals travelling along paths that they may or may not have wanted to be on, and what I adored about this couple is that that they brought out the best in each other and made each other chase their dreams. I loved getting to know the other members of The Heroes (the band) and maybe the author plans to write their stories too.... I don't know. I do know that I for one would love to read them! This book has everything I could ask for - A fabulous story. A great connection between the characters. Lots of emotion that had me feeling it along the way too. This is another fantastic novel from S.L. Scott and one that I recommend without a second thought.

This couple were just irresistible and this author sure knows how to suck you right in. Everything about them felt so natural, that it was easy to imagine this was real people. Dare *Swoon* had me in a puddle right from the start, not only was he hot as all get out, he was funny, caring and a man of your dreams!! Weatherly, was so open to love, yet she was a strong girl, finding herself in the best of ways. My heart ached for them, when they had to face the reality of life. Bitchiness, jealousy, snobbery and finding out who your real friends are. S.L. Scott has a way with words that just pulls at all your emotions and leaves you unable to hold back the tears. I found it so easy to become engrossed in this couples life, and at times i felt it difficult to keep my anger at bay at how people in their life could treat them!! Basically... I LOVED IT FROM BEGINNING TO END !! A new Top Favourite Rockstar !!!

    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, Oh my freaking DARE MARQUIS!!!

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, years later, fate has intervened and introduced them again. Weatherly Beck (what an awesome name BTW) and Dare Marquis are fireworks from the beginning. From that moment on, they're inseparable and nearly burned my heart down with their firey touch. I love a good rock-star romance that has little bad-element, these boys are quick to act, intense in the loyalties, and passionate with their loves. Every feeling is heightened, every moment lived like their last. Dare is no different, he lives for his passion of music, lives for the dream of creating music. No one explores human connections quite like Suzie does with her characters and their intense loves. This is definitely what I love most about her stories; instant connections, unwavering devotion, undeniable romance. It's magic to read, I fall head over heels every time. *ARC provided in exchange for an honest review*

    I am a big fan of SL Scott’s books and especially her rocker series so I was excited when I heard about Dare. It did not disappoint.

He is sexy, caring, sweet and hot! He is such a good character, and SL Scott’s writing will just make you fall in love with him and them as a couple. His inner struggles over losing his mom, and taking down his walls to let Weatherly in will fill your heart.And I just loved the mentions of The Resistance and The Crow Brothers in the story!Their band, The Hero, also has great supporting characters that I hope will be future stories to come.I just loved how this story was developed, the writing, and the journey the characters went through to get their HEA. I highly recommend this story. It is a must read!

Now Dare and Weatherly's relationship is one that is built from fate, chance and one that was written long before they began. This is an insta-love that neither one of them is expecting and although it seem to move fast it's fitting for the circumstances surrounding them and the events that happened in the past. I totally loved all the characters I really hope that the whole band, will get a book. As you can never go wrong with a rockstar, that is moody but a total alpha and territorial to boot. This book runs through a lot of emotions and although I saw the fun in most parts of the story. There is a sorrow that runs through it. One that never goes away. It's wanting to belong to something. And being alone when your surrounded by a crowd of friends.This book is a total recommend from me. I lost sleep for this story as I needed to know what happened. A fantastic, entertaining read.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie's Book Reports.Dare Marquis is a bad boy rock stare with a body to match. Cocky. Devilish good looks. A voice that commands attention. A night with him and no strings attached is just what I need.

Drop dead gorgeous. 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.Oh wow!!! I am not the biggest fan of rock star romances for some odd reason. However, this one is absolutely amazing. I loved the story of Weatherly and Dare. When they first meet you can just feel it in your heart that they are going to be something spectacular. These two are so very very different. Their backgrounds couldn't be further apart. From the moment they meet it doesn't matter that they are from opposite sides of the streets. Dare will make you fall in love with him so hard you will wish that he is real and could be yours forever. He is so caring and passionate about his music, friends and just everything in general. He and his band mates which they all consider family are just amazing. Weatherly has had everything she has ever wanted handed to her. However as great as that may seem it all comes with a price for Weatherly. These two are just destined to be epic together and you are going to love finding out just exactly what that means. I loved this book. I devoured it. You do not want to miss this book from S.L. Scott. It will absolutely blow you away.

    Some things are fated in life. One random day a boy and a chatty girl met and left an impression on each other. One day in a bar a rock star was drawn to a pretty girl at the bar.
