Reading & Reviewing Every Tessa Dare Book, In One Month (Part 1)(Mini-reviews)

Reading and reviewing every Tessa Dare novel

Yes, you heard me right.

On January 5, 2020, I began my mission to read every Tessa Dare book. Now, I didn’t actually have that as a goal when I picked up Do You Want To Start A Scandal, but once I started, I couldn’t stop. And now we’re here.

First, the truth:

  • I haven’t read every Tessa Dare book yet. I actually plan on making this a two-part series. This is part 1, where I talk about the 14 of her books I have read. I will add a part 2 once I finish the rest.
  • I had already read 3 of her books before starting this, but I do plan on rereading them for part 2!
  • All the books in part 1 were read in a month, but there might be a break between part 1 and part 2. Doing this made me fall a bit behind in my TBR, so I need to take some time to catch up before continuing.
  • I will be including any novellas that are sold separately from anthologies.
  • There are a lot of books to talk about, so the reviews won’t be my normal, full length reviews. Instead, they’ll be quick mini reviews. I may make full length reviews for some of the books eventually, but not today.

I’m sorry for the clickbait-y title, but if you can forgive me, we should probably get started on those reviews!
