“Conor Edwards is absolutely the guy you fall for before you learn that girls like me don’t get guys like him.”
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.
The Dare was surprisingly unlike what Elle Kennedy has written before. I’ve been a big fan of hers since reading The Chase last year, which reawakened my love for the romance genre. This books premise of a young college woman trying to “get over their ugly-duckling complex” set off my intuition: that this book would feature a plus size main character. (Cue: Kristen Bell’s sloth meltdown on Ellen.) No other 2020 release had me nervously clamoring to read it quite like The Dare. But soon after picking it up I became engrossed with this sweet fake dating romance.

Hello to my fellow bloggers and bookworms. Today, I’d like to go through some of the books I’m looking forward to read in June.
First of all, it feels inappropriate to not acknowledge what has happened in America over the past week. I believe that protesting racism and systematic oppression is as much of the responsibility of white people, if not more, than people of colour.
As someone who doesn’t live in America, I cannot protest with you. I can however, access resources that are available to me digitally. Starting this month, I’d like to read more non-fiction books to educate myself, so I can become a better ally. I hope some of you will join me in this endeavour.

Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a great start to your week. I wanted to do a romance orientated top ten whilst it was still February. The Top Ten series is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, so don’t forget to check out their blog to participate in future topics!
I definitely have a slight hierarchy of my favourite couples, but I really do love all of these jellybeans and I’d read every book on this list again in a heartbeat because of them.
Hello bookworms! Today I’m so excited to share 5 exciting October releases, most of which are from my two favourite genres – fantasy and romance!

Happy Friday bookworms! I know how this looks, but honestly, I LOVE this book tag. Probably because it’s an opportunity to be reflective and reminds me to appreciate the books I read in the first half of 2019.
Although I’m posting this way outside of an acceptable time frame, I’m only mentioning books that I read between January up until June. Hopefully adhering to the rules of the tag makes up for me not posting this sooner! 😉
