4.9 Stars

Avery Dare lives a quiet life in Miami as an online fashion/makeup video blogger. She has good friends, a close, large family and if her love life is lacking, she likes it that way. But when she receives an invitation to one of her ex's concerts along with an invitation to meet him back stage, she decides to take the risk... and comes face to face with the reality of his rock star lifestyle - the press, the crowds, and the half naked groupies.

At eighteen, Grey Kingston left everything he knew and loved behind to seek fame and fortune as a rock star, and he found it as the lead guitarist and singer for the band, Tangled Royal. Fans adore him, women throw themselves at him, and he can afford everything he couldn't growing up. Yet at the height of his career, he's ready to walk away and return home to a simpler life... and the woman he left behind, if he can convince her to give him another chance.

Except moving on isn't as easy as Grey would like. When Avery is threatened by a stalker, it becomes evident Grey's fans not only don't want him to retire, they don't want Avery in his life either. And Avery isn't sure she wants the pressures that are part of Grey's life... but she doesn't want to lose him again, either.
Can their recently renewed love survive the fallout?

25-year old Avery lives a happy life in Miami.
But there's this boy that got away.
Rock-Superstar Grey - he was her high school boyfriend - but he wanted out of his horrible life - see the world - make money - be famous.
But now he's back - and done with wanting to be famous. He only wants Avery and a happy life.
But the way he left her back then was not the nicest way...

Will she give him another chance?
Avery hates being surrounded by people - she still has some panic attacks once in a while, after what happened to her as a kid - and being with a famous rocker will surely bring attention to her too....
But the sizzling attraction between them has never gone away.....




 NOPE..... I'm not telling you ☺

I don't want to spoil anything!!! ☺☺☺
(OK - I can tell you that there's no cliffhanger ;) )


This was a quick, cute and sexy romance.
I love everything ROCKSTAR - and this story was really cute. Not really rock-star-ish, because Grey kinda retired from being a rockstar - but still.. I loved it.
Grey is really great - he knows what he wants from the very beginning of the story - totally different to most romance book heroes ☺
He wants Avery and he plans on getting her!
Adorable! The way she tries to fight - not really fighting, but trying to - as if she could resist a sexy, tattoed rockstar ☺☺☺

DARE TO ROCK was a cute and sexy Rock-Star-ish Romance!
Go and get your own dose of Grey Kingston!!!!

I love a good second chance romance.

A second chance romance with a rock star?
Even though this is book 7 in the Dare series, I did not feel that I was missing anything by not having read the first 6 books (though I will be going back to read them at a later date) except maybe getting my head around the family tree :/

Avery and Grey have a history, one that caused a lot of hurt when he left to become a world famous rock star.  Though now he is retired and not really a rock star any more, he is still famous and a media-magnet.

I loved that he knows what he wants, and goes for it full steam ahead.  Avery wants him, doesn't want him, she is as confused as Grey is determined.

Throw in stalkers, family dramas and paparazzi, you know that things are not going to be all fun and games for our delightful duo.

I did feel though, that considering the amount of time they had been apart, they did kind of jump right back in where they left off - but this might just be me.

Dare to Rock is a sweet second chance romance, it will make us all have a bit of a "what if" moment.

Now, am off to one-click some more Dares..
