Review of Dare Me by Stella Rhys

Lake and I never had a chance at normal. She was drop dead gorgeous from day one – our maid’s granddaughter who became my mother’s spoiled living doll. I hated that girl with all my heart and at the same time, I worshipped every inch of her skin, every word that she spoke. I lived for her and the twisted game of truth or dare we created to feed our f***ed up needs for shock, shame and one-upping each other. Lake was my drug, my bad lifestyle choice.

And I’d fallen in and out of love with her a thousand times till the day she disappeared.

I know I ruined Callum Pike and going back to New York may be the worst decision I’ve ever made, which is saying a lot. But I’m willing to risk it. I never wanted to leave and now that I can, I’m going back – to be with the man I made, who made me. I know I screwed him up. I know he's hardened and become cold. I know the love we had is gone. But I need him now more than ever and no matter how much it hurts, no matter what kind of sick or satisfying way he decides to torment me, I’m going to fight through it.

I’m going to repent for the way I broke him and I’m going to find the Callum Pike I loved again – even if it tears me apart.

My Review
3 Star Review

Honestly I really liked the premise of this book and it definitely delivered on all points. There was a good storyline there but I had kind of an issue with how it was written and this has nothing to do with Stella Rhys' writing because I genuinely enjoy her books. 

This story was written a little differently as it was all in present tense however all of a sudden it would jump back to the past in the middle of a chapter and while it flowed for the most part it did confuse me at times and I kind of found myself getting detached then. The flashbacks kind of came out of nowhere which I think was my biggest gripe with this book.

Having said that I am a big fan of Stella Rhys and will definitely be reading more books by her!
