The Dare by Elle Kennedy – REVIEW & EXCERPT –


When Elle Kennedy had said that Hunter’s book was going to be the last book in the Briar U series, I was a little sad that we weren’t going to get a story for Conor. So, when she announced that Conor was getting a book, I was ECSTATIC, and she didn’t disappoint with his story!

Conor Edwards is one of the hottest guys on campus, and he knows it. Girls flock to him and can’t resist his charm. So, when Taylor needs his help with a challenge laid down by some of her Kappa Chi sisters, Conor, being the good guy that he is, plays along. What was supposed to be him helping her out one time turns out to be more when he decides he’s having too much fun pulling the messing with her sorority sisters. The more time they spend together, the more the line between fake and real blurs. Taylor thinks guys like Conor could never be attracted to girls like her, but Conor is out to prove her wrong.

I absolutely loved this story. I could totally relate to Taylor and her insecurities and I absolutely loved Conor. I won’t delve much deeper because I don’t want to spoil anything, but what I will say is Conor Edwards is the guy all girls want. He may be one of the hottest guys on campus, but he’s also extremely sweet and caring and the way he helps Taylor come out of her shell gave me ALL THE FEELS. I also love the back and forth between all of the guys. These boys are so much more than hockey players and it seriously melts my heart when we get to revisit them! I truly think Elle saved the best Briar U book for last!


She regards me with a look. One I haven’t seen from her tonight—staring at me under heavy-lidded eyes her lips red and swollen from biting them as she moaned. There’re fathoms behind that mask, fascinating depths I’m becoming more eager to explore. For a fleeting moment, I think she wants me to kiss her. Then she blinks, and the moment’s gone.

“Conor Edwards, you’re a decent guy.”

I’ve been called worse. Doesn’t mean I don’t notice how totally delectable her cleavage looks when she rolls onto her side to face me. “That was the best fake sex I’ve ever had,” I say solemnly.

She snickers.

My gaze sweeps over her flushed cheeks, her flawless, glowing skin. Then it dips to her amazing cleavage again. I know what she’s going to say before I even voice the question, but it slips out of my mouth regardless.

“So, you want to fool around?”

Get ready for another binge-worthy romance from New York Times bestselling 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.
