Publisher's Summary

Dare Marquis is a bad boy rock star with a body to match.

Cocky.

Devilish good looks.

A voice that commands attention.

A night with him and no strings attached is just what I need. But he makes it impossible to not want more when he runs his hand through his dark, wild hair, and smiles. One he only shares with me.

Weatherly Beck is an angel with a body made for sin.

Whip-smart.

Drop dead gorgeous.

Too good for any guy from the east side.

Her life is planned out, so I don't have a right to step in and mess up her future. But when I look into her sapphire blue eyes and taste the innocence on her lips, I know we're meant to be more than a one-night stand.

I want her to take a chance on me, to take a chance on us. She may not be a damsel in distress, but I dare her to let me be her hero.

A BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY OF TWO DESTINED SOULS

This was a sweet, romantic, touching story about two lovers from very different worlds.. Weatherly caught her boyfriend cheating but she wasn’t surprised.. and she wasn’t heartbroken either which told her a lot. Instead she goes to a Bar where she meets a sexy, edgy, handsome Rocker who is the singer/guitarist in popular, but yet to be discovered, band and their sizzling chemistry changes both their lives forever. Because the beautiful, smart, virginal 23 yr old Law Graduate’s privileged life has been planned out for her by her successful, powerful, manipulative Father.. and a 25 yr old penniless Rocker from the wrong side of their world was never part of those plans. But Destiny just laughed.. and turns a planned one night stand into a forever love via a heartfelt touching journey where palpable chemistry, a soul-to-soul connection, uncharted firsts, passion, self-discovery and love revealed two hearts that had always been entwined.

An enjoyable and entertaining journey that’s refreshingly different.. where the hero has a noble soul and, when he meets the right woman, he’s understanding, compassionate, supportive and very loving too. However, he stirs and awakens the heroine’s true self which brings conflict with her family and an her ex and a ex friend muddies the water too.. but thankfully love overcomes the drama, the heartbreak and the angst leading to a beautiful HEA. It’s an intense slow-burn, there’s sex but it’s often understated because this is not a descriptive erotica drenched listen and there’s a nice brotherly friendship between all the members of Hero the band too. Sebastian and Ava did a wonderful job bringing the characters, and the dual POV story, to life.

Worth a credit? Ms Scott has written a touching, if a little predictable, love story about an instant attraction/connection that blossomed and grew into something beautiful.. and yes, IMO, it’s creditworthy.

Dare

This book is great! I loved the fact that it is the heroine that has the money this time since it is more commonly the other way around. The love these two share is strong enough to make it through anything. I hope there will be books about the rest of the band.

Full of angst, steamy chemistry & great characters

I absolutely loved the audiobook of Dare by S.L. Scott. Sebastian York and Ava Erickson brought Dare and Weatherly to life for me and I could not stop listening. They were absolutely amazing. Dare is the story of two very different and opposite type of people brought together when they least expected it..

I cannot begin to express how much I loved Dare. He was sexy and charming , but also very caring. A sexy bad-boy Rockstar with a big heart. His life has not been easy, but he has worked hard to be where he is today. Weatherly is the good girl who has her life planned out and always doing what is expected. Yet she was not afraid to take a chance. I loved her strength and determination.

When they meet, the sparks fly right off the pages! But choices have consequences, especially from those around them. Dare by SL Scott was full of steamy chemistry, angst, great characters and a story that will consume you. I loved seeing them fall and navigate their relationship and those around them. Another great listen from S.L. Scott!

Happy listening!

Love this book!!

Dare and Weatherly are book perfection. That is what SL Scott gives readers. It gives all the feels we love in romance books. Swoon, chemistry, honesty, a little conflict, amazing resolution. I was addicted to this book and never wanted it to end!

Dare and Weatherly both has issues from the past that affect how they are. They are drawn to each other right from the tart and it all makes sense. The book is not rushed. Dare is such an incredible man that you just fall in love with him. From his relationships with the guys in the band to how he sees Weatherly, it is beautiful. Weatherly grows so much within herself throughout the book, learning what is really important.

This book is about how 2 totally different people can fall in love. It is a book of relationships with all the characters throughout the book, readers will fall in love with. It learning how to be turn to yourself and those you want in your life, how to fight for love and accept love.

Thank you SL Scott for one of my top 2019 readers. I highlighted so many incredible lines that just make you feel!

The narration is fabulous!! Ava and Sebastian bring these characters to life!!

Beautiful Story! Amazing Narration!

I have read this story before, and the audiobook version is amazing! I loved this Rock Star Romance/opposites attract! Weatherly and Dare's story is beautiful and romantic. They share an instant attraction and their chemistry is strong. The ending is beautiful. I enjoyed reading this story. This wasn't my first book from this author, and she never disappoints. Ava Erickson and Sebastian York did an amazing job with the narration, as always! I enjoyed listening this story and I highly recommend it.

Love it!

Dare Marquis and Pepper Beck story about a sweet girl and a bad boy rockstar. They meet in a bar, love and fate had their plans for these ones even though opposites attract, sometimes there is more into it all. I love rockstar romance, I am addicted to all of SL Scott rockers and Dare Marquis got a big check mark for hot book boyfriend. This book delivered all I loved in this trope. A beautiful 5 star read!

Clashing Society's!

Dare (A Rock Star Hero) captivated my mind right from the beginning with its prologue. I love how Dare Marquis and Weatherly Beck first met and fate brought these two back together. The appellation Pepoer that Robert (Dare) gave Weatherly and the reasons behind it is something else I loved about it. Everything fit together perfectly as they came full circle on their journey. With only a bit of angst, character building & kindred are intensified. A sacchariferous rock star love with a not so typical celebrity. I love the quote " beauty attracts the eye, but the soul captures the heart.". The writing style is savvy and profoundly deep. I love that we got a epilogue in the end giving us all the right vibes.

Narators Sebastian York and Ava Erickson are the perfect dual pair. I absolutely love Sebastian's baritone voice and Ava's sweet and sensual elements that she conveys while speaking. Their inflection is flawlessl & listening is smooth sailing all the way. through. I love these two narrators and their performance together was perfect.

Wonderful!!!

The more books I read/listen to from S.L. Scott the more I enjoy them!
Dare is so much more than just a bad boy rocker meets the sweet girl next door. There are layers to these complex characters that just make you want more.
Both narrators do an incredible job bringing emotion to the characters but that's a given with Sebastian York and Ava Erickson. I can't think of a book that I've listened to with them that I haven't enjoyed.

Love me a good rockstar!

There's something about her rockstar men that I just can't get enough of. Dare is all man, all bad boy. His charm and sinful, devilish ways is something no woman can walk away from once his sights are set. His eyes land on Weatherly, and believe you me, she's looking right back at him. She likes what she sees, as does Dare. They have an instant connection. A connection that reaches far deeper than just between the sheets.

Nothing is as simple as it should be. Dare and Weatherly are from opposite sides of the world. He's from a world where he lives hard and fast. He has lived by his sinfully sexy voice that makes him a heartthrob to every woman in earshot. Weatherly has been living a more privileged life. She bad her entire future planned. Dare changes things. He wasn't among her plans. You know the best things about plans? Changing them and following your heart.

Again, I feel a sigh coming on. Just a sweet and contentment feeling in my heart. Scott's writing is beautiful and she gives her characters life with a gorgeous story. These two were just lovely and so sexy together. I loved the connection they shared. It was an immediate response to each other and I was immediately into their story. These two narrators are the best romance narrators and together, Sebastian York and Ava Erickson are perfection! I could listen to them all day long and I nearly did! York is amazing as Dare and I had really high expectations... I mean, he is a rockstar. He was fabulous!

Dare and Weatherly!

Dare was raised in a modest lifestyle and has to work for everything that he has received. The challenges h e has faced has only made him stronger and he owns the mistakes that he has made along the way. The band that he and his friends created are on the cusp of realizing their dreams and his life is looking up. One night at a bar he meets Weatherly and see is what he doesn’t know was missing from his life.

Weatherly was raised in a wealthy lifestyle and has followed her parents dreams for her both when it comes to the men she dates and her careers. When she finds our her future is built on lives it causes her to re-assess especially when are seems so wrong for her but feels so right.

On the surface they couldn’t have been more different but where it really counted they were soulmates. Their journey wasn’t without its ups and downs but that only made it that much more special.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook and I thought that the narrators were a perfect fit. Not only did they bring the story to life, they made it even better.

Off the charts chemistry!

An author who can write a story like this is one I will one click every time. SL Scott has a knack for bringing the best out in her writing and this rock star romance is no exception. Weatherly Beck is a law student, grown up with privilege and on the road to success when she finds her fiance cheating on her. Not surprised or particularly upset, she goes to a bar, and notices the lead singer of the band. Dare is not short of women wanting him, but there is something about Weatherly when he sees her in the crowd. When these two meet, it's nothing short of explosive. But being the wonderfully warm, and compassionate man Dare is, he wants to take things slow. A slow burn, both from different sides of the track and the odds stacked against them, will they find their happily ever after? I loved the way this is written. The characters are so real, the story a modern day Romeo and Juliet and the flow is like chocolate, smooth and yummy. I love SL Scott, her style of writing, the fact that she's not afraid to make her heroine's smart, and her heroes loving. It's an amazing listen.

Narrated by the team of Sebastian York and Ava Erickson, we have the perfect cast. York is the kind of narrator that can perform any character, and he molds into Dare. Erickson could not have been better as Weatherly. She brings in a fresh voice with spunk, smarts and a fierce loyalty all with voice inflections. You will not want to miss this one!

narrator's nailed it

this is reeeaaalllyyy sweet...and flowery and I wouldn't call it a rockstar romance at all. I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop and the plot to thrown In some raw heartache and tears....nope....didn't happen. the hero is almost a rockstar before he becomes one as everything including the band is good and homey and respectful...but everyone knows that's not really all a rockstar is made of....but boy it's sweet as treacle. so if your looking for a flowery feel good romance then this is it...especially if you love flowery words and HEA.
the resistance series kicked this books butt.
