If You Dare (Deanna Madden, #3)If You Dare by A.R. Torre
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was very excited about reading the (for now) final book in this exciting series.

Deanna's life has never been easy. After all, it's hard to keep her murderous impulses under control. So she's gone back to staying inside her apartment and keeping her distance from the world while working hard. Well, she does keep one thing: her boyfriend, Jeremy. But the day the police stops by unannounced, everything changes and if she doesn't remember what happened, she'll probably end up getting locked up...

Well, I didn't expect all of that! 👀 But I did know this book would turn out to be as addictive and dark as the previous two.

This installment starts out full of confusion and questions. Of course, it's intentional because Deanna's story eventually comes out as the mystery unravels, but getting all the answers took a while and turned out to be quite the tense experience. And one particular bit that happened to one of the characters was quite upsetting.

Told mostly in Deanna's typical snappy and straightforward style, she doesn't hold back from her feelings, expectations and actions. But this time, she's plagued with some self-doubt because a chunk of her memory is missing. As usual, there are also several other POVs added to the mix so we get to see the whole story through different angles, and each helped move everything along, as well as kept the fast pace going.

The last few chapters were gripping and I couldn't read them fast enough. Yikes.

It's sad to say goodbye to such a great character—one I didn't expect to like so much—but I was satisfied with the conclusion because honestly, there was no other way things could've ended.
