4 I Dare You CROWNS

If you like your books dark, twisted and delicious, this is for you. This is book three in the I Dare You Series. However, the one thing I liked but also didn’t like if that makes sense was that Shantel wrote this so that it could be read as a stand-alone. So, while I loved the story there was a lot of redundancy due to all the recurring scenes from the first books. But, If this is the first time your reading this series and you start here, you are going to devour this in one sitting. And honestly, I don’t think I would have felt so strongly about this had I not just reread books one and two in preparation for this one. 

That’s right, baby, come to me. Let yourself think I’ll save you from the darkness when I’m really gonna drown you in it. 

This book is delectably dark and twisted, Shantel grabs hold of you from the first page and thrusts you into the world of the GWS. I’ve been waiting for this since book one. Deke is EVERYTHING. He’s brooding and twisted with just the right amount of psycho intermixed. I have loved him since book 1 but you most definitely see a completely different side to him in this book and I could not get enough. Deke is a force you do not want to be messing with. 

“You smell like her,” I growl, hating it. “Make me smell like you,” she whispers, running her hands down my back.

If you were missing some of the action that you got from book one but less in book two. This book will rectify that. It starts strong and ends just as strong. Filled to the brim with passion, action and the twisted games from the first book we’ve come to love. I could not put this down once I started. This story wraps you up in so many WTF moment’s you don’t really know what’s going on. Once you think you’ve figure it out BOOM Shantel throws a wrench in your theory. 

To need someone is a weakness, and I want to see her need me desperately.

This book is a none stop thrill ride from the opening scene. If you love your books with strong women and the men who love them with explosive chemistry that will burn up your Kindle, then this book is most assuredly for you. I love Shantel’s writing style and that she doesn’t hesitate to take you places you didn’t even know you wanted to be. I absolutely recommend this book. So go out grab this baby and see what Deke Biggs can do.


The game was over. The dares were getting old, and the secrets were piling up faster than the bodies.

But someone had other plans. They wanted to play a new game.

was the love of his life until he found out what she was hiding. Now he wants to seek his revenge in the most daring way.

Deke Biggs has always been a shark. He’s not afraid to kill, and he’s about to become her worst nightmare.

But there’s a new player, and she plans on taking everything, no matter what the cost.

Try to beat him— If You Dare!

Who will win and who will lose?

Happy reading,


  1. Thank you for the review! I’ve been trying to decide if these are my kind of books.

  2. I haven’t read many dark, twisted books. May have to check out this series when I have some time.
