This book tells Vance's story with his stepsister Ava. We first met Vance in Remington and Jules' story The Bet. It is along the same veins of a bully, enemies to love tale but they are the only similarities as this book also has the element of stepsiblings, adultery and danger. We also catch up with Remington and Jules and Clark, it was good to catch up with them again. Would to go straight onto Clark's story but will have to wait.
Wow what an amazing book Ava and Vance’s story had it all lust, love, hurt, hate, and heartbreak. Ava’s parents are helping out Vance’s family because his dad lost his job and all was going well untill a stupid game of true or dare changes everybody’s life and Vance and his family are told to leave and never come back. Ava knows the true of what happened and so does Vance’s dad but to save his own behind he lied and told his family that they where kicked out because Ava said that Vance told her to steal her mother’s necklace because she was caught not being in bed. Some 5yrs later they meet again but now Vance’s father is marrying her mother and they invite Ava to come live with them but all is not as it seems and Vance’s pure hatred for her throws her off and she doesn’t understand what she has done to him to make him act this way. What happens between them once there parents leave for there honeymoon, is she safe living in the same house with him when all he wants to do is get his revenge on her and break her body and soul. How does it all turn out, read this amazing book to find out. I voluntarily read an arc copy of this book for an honest review.
This book had so much mixed signals happening poor Ava couldnt catch a break. I dont think either Vance or Ava ever thought that they would end up as step brother and sister after their parents marry. Ava knowing a secret that tore both of their respective families apart years ago never thought she would see her friend again.Yet Vance has hated Ava for the last few years they havent been together all because of the lie his father told. Could not put this book down it was just to interesting always had a twist and boy did Vance play the smoking hot guy but also had a vindictive side too.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
I literally devoured this book (book 2). The Dare by Cassandra Hallman and J L Beck is all about Vance and Ava. It certainly is a bully romance and it is full of nastiness, lies and heartbreak but it seems like a more intimate journey that you share with Vance and Ava, it’s a refreshing change to the genre. It certainly questions who you do believe over who you should. Well written and worthy of 5 stars and your time.
I enjoyed reading this enemies to lover tale of Vance and Ava. They were separated by a dare and lies cause them many problems. There are many twists and turns throughout this well written tale. This is my honest opinion.
