Publisher's Summary

Get ready for another binge-worthy romance from New York Times best-selling author Elle Kennedy! 

College was supposed to be my chance to get over my ugly-duckling complex and spread my wings. Instead, I wound up in a sorority full of mean girls. I already have a hard time fitting in, so when my Kappa Chi sisters issue the challenge, I can’t say no. 

The dare: Seduce the hottest new hockey player in the junior class. 

Conor Edwards is a regular at Greek Row parties...and in Greek Row sorority beds. He’s the one you fall for before you learn that guys like him don’t give girls like me a second glance. Except Mr. Popular throws me for a loop - rather than laughing in my face, he does me a solid by letting me take him upstairs to pretend we’re getting busy.

Even crazier, now he wants to keep pretending. Turns out Conor loves games, and he thinks it’s fun to pull the wool over my frenemies’ eyes.

But resisting his easy charm and surfer-boy hotness is darn near impossible. Though I’m realizing there’s much more to Conor’s story than his fan club can see.

And the longer this silly ruse goes on, the greater the danger of it all blowing up in my face.

Opposites attract!

Teddy Hamilton as Connor was so perfect!!! Elizabeth Louise brought just the right amount of vulnerability to Taylor, and portrayed her emotions so well!!! Yes, I loved the audio version of this book so hard <3

Connor and Taylor are opposites. They are opposites from where they came from, where they are, where they are going. They are opposites in their insecurities, their reactions, and their processing of feelings. They are completely in sync with the reaction to the other, the openness and comfortableness they feel for the other, and the failure to communicate. The joy of their story is watching them realize the worth in themselves, believing that the other sees the real them. That gives them the safe place to grow, to accept, to believe in what is so apparent to others. They make mistakes, they hurt each other, but the truth is, they love the other too much to be without them. No angst, no games, sexy, and emotional, these two getting their HEA was a beautiful thing to be part of!

Journey of rediscovery, Briar U all the way

Devoured this book in a day. Taylor and Conor are described as being physically different but I loved how Kennedy explored how insecurities can come in all forms. Loved watching these two lean on each other on a journey of rediscovery. Stick with it...its worth the listen ❤️

👏

Wow! That was a powerful storyline with very powerful statements with hard topics from body image shaming, to college sorority hazing, sexual harassment/assault, breaking and entering, burglary, blackmail and low self-esteem/self-worth issues.
The love story is really quite beautiful and messy but real.

Loved it

What's not to love about a story that has Teddy Hamilton as the narrator. In the continuation of the Briar U series I think I liked this one the best. New story line that incorporates just enough of the characters from the previous books where it does not make you feel like you just read the same story. Appropriately titled a dare turns into a real relationship that has its own challenges but it makes you feel outside of the dare these are real issues (body shaming) that college students go through.

Sigh. Possibly a spolier.

I'm tired of authors thinking that fat = ugly and then describing the character as not even being big at all other than having large breasts. Also the miscommunication trope not only once but twice? Not her best book. Only a 4 star because of the performance.

I love Elle Kennedy and the Off-Campus series. When she came out with Briar U, I jumped on board with this new series. She just knocks sports romances out of the park. You can read this as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading the previous books as it will give you some insight into several of the other characters.
I am not sure if this is the last one in this series, but I just cannot get enough.

This one was not my favorite though. This is mainly due to Taylor and the constant insecurity around her weight. It is not very clear if she is even overweight as it only mentions her having some curves. I was annoyed with this as it was a little overkill on someone who really does not appear overweight at all. I do like how it hits on insecurities though and how Connor really tries to help her through this.

This does deal with issues/triggers of mental health, acceptance, family, love, body image and more. It had a little bit of everything.

I really wish the Off Campus Series and the Briar U series would be adapted into a TV series. It would be so good. I am obsessed with both series and all of the characters. I am heart broken to know this is the end of the Briar U series!

Mixed Bag for me

I liked the performances, especially Teddy Hamilton who is always amazing. Elizabeth Louise did the best she could with what she had to work with. I didn't love Taylor, all her many insecurities or how she treated Connor at times. The fat shaming was a bit much. The book had some fantastic moments of humor, which kept me listening. I loved the Briar U setting and the hockey players who seemed like old friends from previous books.

SPOILER: One of the things that bothered me the most was the portrayal of the sorority. A hazing event took place off page that resulted in one of the key conflicts for the main characters. The sorority sisters who perpetrated the hazing in the first place never faced any consequences and the treatment of the pledges was completely normalized even though it far reaching negative consequences for their lives and relationships.

Loved this book!

I have been waiting for what feels like forever for this book to hit audible. I loved the other 3 books and couldn’t wait to hear about Connor and it did not disappoint! I’m sitting at work in a quite office trying to contain my laughter because I was rolling. You won’t be disappointed!

Not a fav....

3 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️
I was really looking forward to reading The Dare, specially after getting done reading The Play which I loved, but ended up being a little disappointed. Taylor’s insecurities were so annoying, to the point I wanted to slap her! Omg stop fat shaming yourself and authors just STOP fat shaming altogether!

I thought Conor was more of a alpha male, but he was seriously a disappointment in this book. He kinda was on the wimpy side.
Plus I was very disappointed in him regarding what he did after Taylor and him broke up. If you say you love someone, then just maybe the first thing you do NOT do is go out and hookup.

The Dare started off really good and I was even laughing so hard in chapter 2, but then the storyline fell apart. I started losing interest and just wanted it to end. It just became the same story that every other book has....Video tape leaks out, psycho bitch turns nice....blah blah blah. Anyhow The Dare wasn’t one of Elle Kennedy‘s best...


Audiobook review: 5 stars! I can’t say it enough Teddy Hamilton is always awesome! I can listen to his voice for hours. lol Elizabeth Louise was fabulous! They both are wonderful narrators...

So good!

After not being all that impressed with book 1 of this series (The Chase) I didn't have high hopes for this one, but gave it a go since I had already purchased the audiobook. And I'm so glad I gave it a chance because I liked it much more. I liked the characters more, as well as the trope (fake relationship) and the story. There were so many times that I laughed out loud, but not in the stereotypical romcom way, where to story is written to be funny, these were just quippy one-liners and sarcastic wit that is right up my alley. Add in one of my favorite narrators, and it was a winner for me. I'm not sure if I'm interested enough to grab any more of the series, but after reading this one, there is at least a chance of it now.

Kind of all over the place

They had the maturity of high school students more than college students in their junior year. Some parts were humorous and the characters were mostly likable. Not the best of Briar

j'ai adoré

véritable coup de coeur.
Comme toujours, ce fut un bon moment en compagnie de mes joueurs de hockey préfèrés🤗
après Brenna, l'histoire de Taylor est ma préférée... j'ai adoré.
