Truth or Dare

Truth or Dare (Capital Girls, #3)Truth or Dare by Ella Monroe
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

Note: I haven’t read the other books in the series because I didn’t know this was the 3rd book in a series when I requested it because I am weird. Also this makes no sense but it's all good

This is a story of these girls, their close friends, family and enemies. In this book, they are trying to get over the betrayal and death of one of their closest friends, Taylor. There is conflict, back stabbing, scandal and friends lost and found in this story. If this was a stand alone book, I would have given it a 2 star rating, mainly because you meet almost ALL of the characters (main and otherwise) in the first few chapters, and it's very hard to keep them all straight. There were a lot of times where I had to go back and reread parts of the book to figure out who was who, who was dating who, and who was related to who. There were a lot of conflicts and situations each character had to deal with, that it made the whole book feel very jumbled, and again, I'd have to go back and reread trying to figure out which conflicts went with which character as well.

Because it is the 3rd book in a series, I am giving it 3 stars, because the characters would have been easier to follow if I'd learned about them slowly from the start, I'd know the back story a lot better than the bits and pieces I had to pick up and go back and reread to piece together. I liked the book for the most part, it did keep me engaged, but because it was so busy, it did irritate me quite a bit to have to go back to the beginning of the book trying to find something I thought I read about that could help me understand the situation at had a bit better.
