The Play, but I was worried about having yet another playboy hockey player hero We ve gotten that so much throughout this series and the Off Campus series, so I wasn t sure how much I would like Conor s character Good thing I ended up loving him From the start, I loved our two main characters Conor likes to get around and enjoy the company of women, but he doesn t like it when he s objectified or treated as a conquest He really is a real person and wants girls to want to be with him, not be with his hot shot hockey star persona And with Taylor, I really liked how she was a curvy heroine She does have insecurities and I was a little annoyed with how she forced herself to eat salads and was very insecure about her weight, but I understood why she felt that way Taylor is in a sorority and one of her best friends is in it with her, but there are also some nasty girls in the sorority, which is what begins the dare given to her to sleep with Conor I love a good fake dating story and it was so cute when Conor agreed to pretend to sleep with her and then wanted to pretend to date her so that her sorority sisters would stop being mean I really loved how Taylor and Conor were good friends and then started to get feelings for each other Conor was so patient and made sure that Taylor consented to anything before they did it, which I loved I do think that there was some miscommunication near the end that annoyed me because I just hate that trope and I wish that the conflicts at the end didn t feel so separate from the romance plot line of the story, but overall I really enjoyed Taylor and Conor s story An unexpected fake relationship trope romance in which will have your heart melting and wanting so muchI mean, where do I start Do I start with the fact that Elle Kennedy is a queen of sports romance Or simply just straight up admit that her characters are one of a kind and will always have your heart in knots of loving them Taylor and Conor are just UGHHH

just what the doctor ordered as well Fake trope romances are not my favorites but this one truly did it for me for sure.Once the plot thickens, gosh do things get real And good do they get Emotions

adult books I ve enjoyed this Briar U series and I m sad to see it come to an end, but The Dare was a great finale Conor is newish to the Briar U hockey team as a transfer student from California but he s gotten around during the short time he s been here Still, he s a really sweet and easy going guy you can t help but to love Taylor is in a sorority and here comes the dare she is dared to hook up with Conor from some of her mean girl sorority sisters This isn t Taylor s norm and it doesn t make her comfortable, but Conor does Conor helps Taylor out and they become friends Friends who fake date Conor has such a big heart and I love that he always stands up for Taylor and tries to help her out It s when the fake dating leads to real feelings that things get a little dicey.One of my favorite things about this book was Taylor Taylor isn t your run of the mill, cookie cutter heroines She s a curvy girl and she has her insecurities You don t always have these type of relatable characters, especially in new adult so it was nice to see I loved how Conor looked at her and treated her and in turn it made her see herself in a whole new light I loved Conor just as much as I loved Taylor Both of them were fantastic characters These two together made me so happy Of course there was some conflict, but it wasoutside things coming in and not issues between them.If you love friends to lovers, fake dating, or sports romance, this is one I d highly recommend It was a fun, sweet, and sexy romance that had just the right amount of humor and feels Elle Kennedy has another win with this book 1.5 stars I went into this book prepared to love it Why Well for one, the blurb promised a heroine with an ugly duckling complex a popular jock hero fake relationship pure NA romance catnip.Unfortunately, this book didn t deliver the kind of romance that I would associate with Elle Kennedy There are things that I still liked I mean, I genuinely liked Conor And the way his story unfolded was satisfying Not my favorite EK hero but I liked him a lot.The chemistry between the main char 1.5 stars I went into this book prepared to love it Why Well for one, the blurb promised a heroine with an ugly duckling complex a popular jock hero fake relationship pure NA romance catnip.Unfortunately, this book didn t deliver the kind of romance that I would associate with Elle Kennedy There are things that I still liked I mean, I genuinely liked Conor And the way his story unfolded was satisfying Not my favorite EK hero but I liked him a lot.The chemistry between the main characters was great and I enjoyed the romance between Conor and Taylor Plus, there were some great secondary characters that I really enjoyed.However, there are two things that dragged down the rating for me One was about Taylor s weight The other one is a spoiler so I m save that for last.When the blurb mentioned Taylor s ugly duckling complex, I didn t expect it to mean that Taylor was fat and therefore ugly I m tired of equating fatness with ugliness Tired of it This book is just one of the many popular books out there with this trope and it bothers me that in the year 2020, we re still parroting the same old harmful message fat people are feel ugly and therefore, need a hot man to feel validated.Sure, insecurity is a real thing but I feel like Taylor never learned how to accept herself She accepted herself because Conor loved her, which is fine but ugh, I wish the book had a moment where Taylor had made a decision to be comfortable in her own skin even without Conor s acceptance And you know what s evenannoying Being constantly told that Taylor was fat and in the next sentence, she s described as a Marilyn Monroe lookalike and describes her weight as somewhere between Ashley Graham and Kate Upton I cannot Even.The other thing I didn t like was how the only queer character in the whole book was treated I won t go into details but basically, view spoiler this character was outed in the worst way possible hide spoiler It left such a bad taste in my mouth because this character was just there to serve as a device for the final conflict in the book sighCW fat phobia ARC provided by the author I shed a fucking tear because I thought this series ended, but we ve been BLESSED 3.5 STARS Yup, hungering for Conor Edwards is very, very bad Because he s exactly the kind of man who will break my heart Even if he doesn t mean to I m like a kid at a candy store when it comes to Elle Kennedy books Every time she releases a new one, I do a happy squeal and a dance around the room I just can t help myself Her books are my happy place.Now don t pay much mind to my rating Because a 3.5 star for me means that I enjoyed it Quite a bit actually This was a super cu 3.5 STARS Yup, hungering for Conor Edwards is very, very bad Because he s exactly the kind of man who will break my heart Even if he doesn t mean to I m like a kid at a candy store when it comes to Elle Kennedy books Every time she releases a new one, I do a happy squeal and a dance around the room I just can t help myself Her books are my happy place.Now don t pay much mind to my rating Because a 3.5 star for me means that I enjoyed it Quite a bit actually This was a super cute, slow burn, friends to lovers trope with plenty of laughs and deliciously steamy Of course I will never get enough of the Briar boys, so I was all over this like white on rice.Conor swoons Who doesn t like a sexy goofball that s quite the manwh re but with a heart of gold and plenty of hidden insecurities and vulnerabilities Certainly not me I fell fast and hard for this man.Taylor and Conor are a total case of opposites attracting Taylor is trying to survive her sorority one ridiculous dare at a time With some catty girls that certainly have it out for her, it s not as easy for her to slide under the radar at their parties So when she gets dared by one of hercatty sorority sisters to pick up the hottest guy at the party, she goes for it And tells him exactly what she s doing and begs for his help Conor, being the true gentleman that he is, is happy to oblige And so begins the cutest friendship with an overload of sexual tension It was sew gewd I absolutely loved these two together.What I didn t love was the amount of time this story focused on their insecurities Taylor and her body issues eventually began to wear on me I think us females all suffer from this so I can absolutely sympathize with a girl that s on the curvier side who is constantly surrounded by skinny perfection having some body issues But she focuses so much on this, that it began to wear on me It s all she thinks about I was thrilled to see her finally grow a backbone towards the later part of the story and begin to come out of this shell, but I m not going to lie, it did drive me a bit crazy Considering that Conor has his own insecurities to boot with not being good enough and going from dirt poor to the rich and have everything side and still feeling like he doesn t belong However, so much of the story concentrated on this, that it began to wane my interest a bit I found myself pausingthan usual and it took me a lot longer to finish than any other Elle Kennedy book.That being said, the ending of the story certainly made up for a lot of this I loved seeing Taylor take back her power and the way that things resolve in her sorority I also really loved the way that her and Conor both fight for each other They re not my favorite Briar couple, but they re still up there There s a secondary relationship that happens in this book that I absolutely LOVED It served up some laughs to boot.If you re looking for a swoony and steamy New Adult sports romance, this will certainly fit the bill Was it my favorite in the series Not quite But it still hit the spot just right ARC courtesy of author in exchange for an honest reviewFind me on After a while a few things started to annoy me and near the end one of those things made me want to DNF in the last 10% of the book This is obviously not a favorite I am really happy this book has been written, but Am I the only one who is a little annoyed that the cover doesn t exactly match the rest of the series I absolutely love the covers of the first 3, but this oneAside from that, YAS NEW BOOK. 4 4.5 STARSIt s official y all, this is my favorite book in the Briar U

makes you just fee 4 4.5 STARSIt s official y all, this is my favorite book in the Briar U seriesEveryone comes from somewhere, Conor We ve all screwed up, made mistakes Her tone is soft, but ringing with conviction I don t care who you were before Only who you choose to be now Conor Fucking Edwards My sweetest, softest boy I love him so much, people He is literally the type of character that makes you grin like an idiot, produces butterflies in your tummy and other places and makes you just feel super good He s a huge goofball, not at all what I was expecting to be honest with you, but I fell HARD for him Conor is, in my opinion, the most gentle EK hero to date but he still got that edge and grittiness about him He had his own struggles and inner demons, and he came a long way in this book He fucked up, he grew, he learned He was perfection Taylor Marsh I swear to God that Elle Kennedy writes the BEST heroines in the business I have not hated a single heroine of hers yet, and most of them always go to my favorite heroine shelf Taylor was not an exception I adored her COMPLETELY She is such an amazing character, with insecurities and inner struggles that match my own so I really, really felt for her I loved being inside her head She s the perfect blend of sweet, kick ass and adorable and she definitely has a piece of my heartIn his arms, I feel steady again, finally upright after being thrown askew Because when we aren t together, the world feels misaligned Conor and Taylor together were SO CUTE And I cannot stress that enough They were so perfect for each other and I sound like a broken record, but EK really does pair her characters together perfectly I loveeeeed the way Conor behaved with her and vice versa Some of their scenes had me literally crying from laughter, they were SO funny and cute And of course there was quite a bit of angst and damn if I didn t enjoy those scenes too Yum All in all, this book was so so good The side characters, the overall dialogue, the relationship building I loved it Elle Kennedy is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors and this book is definitely on the top for me A high recommendationShe and I found every possible way to try to sabotage our happiness, each of us falling back on old habits and insecurities But what gives me faith in us is that we always managed to end up right back here Together I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review THE DARE Is a full length slow burn, friends to lovers trope by Elle Kennedy This author is the Queen when it comes to giving us our sports fixes and the hot hockey players she introduces us to in her stories are ones that we all fall in love with and swoon over years later And hockey playboy Conor was no exception He was dropping swoon worthy bombs all over the place When a few catty sorority sisters on Greek Row, throw out a dare during one of their parties for Taylor to seduce THE DARE Is a full length slow burn, friends to lovers trope by Elle Kennedy This author is the Queen when it comes to giving us our sports fixes and the hot hockey players she introduces us to in her stories are ones that we all fall in love with and swoon over years later And hockey playboy Conor was no exception He was dropping swoon worthy bombs all over the place When a few catty sorority sisters on Greek Row, throw out a dare during one of their parties for Taylor to seduce one of the hot hockey players in junior class, she heads right for Conor and whispers in his ear and begs him to just go with it Conor bored with the goings on at the party and being the gentleman that he is follows her to one of the empty bedrooms upstairs And instead of making out as they are mean t to, they sit talking for hours on end, even falling asleep side by side after staying up way past the party had ended.And that ladies and gents is where a sweet, cute friendship blossomed from Conor was just utter perfection and my opinion about him didn t change throughout the book He s probably one of my favourites within this series Just his big heart and kindness, and protectiveness towards Taylor throughout cemented me towards him Taylor believed she was a chunky girl that everyone behind her back whispered about, always hiding her figure wearing unflattering clothes, never believing for a minute that maybe some guys liked her curvesMy curves have been the bane of my existence since I was twelve years oldI think too much time was wasted on Taylor and her insecurities when it came to how she perceived herself in the eyes of her peers, she was always dieting, always wearing clothes two sizes too big for her and always going on about the size of her chest It just made her issues too much of a focal point And poor Conor always trying to boost her self esteem up But as the story progressed I loved seeing Taylor grow as a person, from hiding in big clothes and staying out of the limelight to coming into her own, to the point of even sticking up for herself.Super cute, Super sexy, Super hilarious, AND Super easy to fall in love with these two characters. ^Read Pdf ☔ The Dare ↠ College Was Supposed To Be My Chance To Get Over My Ugly
