The rules are the same. I can’t open the door. I can’t leave. I can’t kill anyone.
The only difference is, I don’t set the rules anymore. Guards in grey uniforms do. It is everything I never wanted and everything I always deserved. I write to you now, from a prison cell. My home for the next twenty to thirty years.
That’s the going term for murder.

5 “I am not normal” stars!!
No!! No!! No!! Alessandra just blew my mind and broke my heart!!! But damn that was good 🙂 This series from the very first page has made me giddy. I have loved Deanna Madden’s character from the very start. She is badass!!! Crazy, but badass!!
“Don’t tell Dr. Derek, but I’ve become much more comfortable with lying than I’ve been with telling the truth.”
So, where do I start and how do I tell you all I love about this story without spoiling it?!?! It’s going to be tough. First we have Deanna, she’s crazy, but she’s not crazy. Hell, I still can’t figure her out. And I am not even going to get into all her weirdness, because if you haven’t read the first two books, then you shouldn’t even be reading my review.
“There was a strong possibility he was in love with a psychopath.”
And then Jeremy, what is he thinking?!?! I would have run like hell from her, yet he is attracted to her differentness. I actually found many scenes between these two very comical. Not in If You Dare, but definitely in the previous parts.
“I will not be harnessed, I will not be kept; I am freedom, and my name is Deanna.”
And along with Jeremy and Deanna, we have MANY other characters who all help keep Deanna from killing others, and on the right side of the law. The strange thing about all these other characters, though, is that most of them she has never even laid eyes on. See, this series sounds interesting, right!!
“I loved him. No matter if it was twisted and deceitful and false, I loved him. Without him, it’s all broken.”
But, the thing about If You Dare is that all hell breaks loose!! Things happen…people are hurt…minds are confused, and my mind was going a mile a minute trying to figure out what was going to happen next. I couldn’t read fast enough!
I love this author’s writing, and she is one of my all-time favorites. I am NEVER disappointed my any part of her stories, and if you haven’t started this series, which is The Girl in 6E, then WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?!
