Where does Dare the Devil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Good question. The difference between this audio book and others is the overall production is spectacular - which typically is accomplished through bigger budgets of course and stellar talent. It is read by duo narrators whom are exceptionally gifted with the ability to "become" the characters they portrayed. I would call them talented actors rather than narrators. There was a great amount of back and forth dialogue from a great amount of characters that really filled out the stories big picture and was really well done. The evolving romance between Thor and Cam, the challenges of being a woman as good as any man at almost everything is something both men and women find a struggle in any relationship. I loved Cam. She was so beautiful, thoughtful and so much fun and interesting. Thor was the sexy, Montana Ranger that was every woman's dream.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Dare the Devil?
The helicopter scene was exciting.
Which scene was your favorite?
Thor climbing up the hill to find Cam quite comfortable and safe and their back and forth dialogue as she attempts to ease his bruised ego. Boy was she one patient girl. I believe I would have snapped and said 'Get over it all ready cowboy .. and let's 'get on with it!"
Any additional comments?
This was a great story that was truly different from your generic romance. It was quite original, and really fun to listen too. I loved Cam's grandmothers who tricked Devlin. Lots of funny parts, real (and hot) romance in a difficult industry and time. Strong characters that were believable and ethical. Just a great listen.

Just finished listening to the audio book Dare The Devil. I picked it from the sample narration I heard, and the title of the book was tantalizing. My take on this modern day BOY MEETS HIS MATCH IN GIRL, was a great listen all around. If a story doesn't go the way you expect it, I consider that to be a good thing. To be predictable is boring. I kind of didn't get the turn on with the big mustache and hairy chest however, never met a girl that liked that either (maybe in the 80's this was the 'in' thing), but I fell in love with Cam Stirling. Most ladies who love to compete with men, are also loud about it. Cam played down her athletic abilities, her smarts and beauty, like they weren't anything to brag about.
Thor's bad attitude rubbed me the wrong way. He's got the hottest girl crazy about him, she steps up to the plate to take care of business, and rather than being appreciative about it or just plain in awe of her amazing talents, Thor seems to get a wedgy every time his woman is capable. It would have been cool if he was more a man about her being a capable woman.
The author stayed focused on the main storyline, without too many sub-plots, which I consider a smart choice to keep your listeners engaged in a strong story flow and not get lost in all these unnecessary side stories.
Supporting characters were really well done by the narrators - the movie star Bridgette and the directors back and forth, Nate was real funny, the rowdy crew that followed Cam around like she was a mother hen who kept them all in line, throwing popcorn at her when she scolded them and so many descriptive nuances that made it a more 'vivid' listen.
All in all, the story is enjoyable and well written with a different slant to your typical adventure-romance theme, the narration by Destiny Landon and Lee James was excellent and characters memorable.
