Dare Me, Rebecca Shea

Dare Me,  Rebecca Shea

Dare Me by [Shea, Rebecca]

Genre:   Romance,

Well, *sigh* I really wanted to like this, it sounded a fun read but…it wasn’t a bad book, there were a few irritations, but it was mostly a non event for me. Very predictable with the big twist being something I’d guessed from very early on.

There were a couple of potential major events that were brought up – the invitation to a gala from a customer for example – but they fizzled out into nothing. Storm in a teacup stuff.
Other than that it was just Saige asks him out on a dare from colleagues, he says yes and they’re headlong into an intense relationship.

The continuing “dares” irritated me, they sounded so childish. What adult does that?
The first one yes, friends out drinking do play silly games like that when they’ve had a few but sober? Nope.
I didn’t really feel the intimacy of their relationship, that must touch, must have, must be with that comes with new ones, it just felt forced with them and too rushed.
There were some probably erotic sex scenes but I skipped them as the story just felt too weak and I was bored.

Its one of those “it’s me not the book” reads, as I can see others loved it, but for me a story needs more depth. The characters need to feel real, and these didn’t, they felt like stereotypes, clichés, the plots need to have drama, to move forward, not be just work, home, sex, work, home, sex, with a little moaning and nightmares about Saige’s past thrown in.
Then all those accusations that she throws around at the end, she felt like a petulant child, and Holt was too ready to take the blame for something that wasn’t his fault. Grow up girl, you don’t have a monopoly on bad things in life.

Well, that’s how they feel to me, but of course for others they are perfect, and its a five star read. Horses for courses.

Stars: Two, just not my type of read sadly.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
