I'll be honest, the main reason I bought this was because of Will M. Watt. He's an amazingly talented narrator with a soothing deep voice. He did an amazing job narrating along with Charlotte Cole.
The characters in the book were not very mature. The miscommunication, the flip flopping of emotions made my teeth clench in irritation. The characters are supposed to be in their mid 20's, but it seemed they were more teenagers than adults. I can understand an athlete behaving like this. Not a doctor.
I don't think I'll pick up another Amy Daws book.

I love Amy Daws' audibles and this is up there with the best of them. I loved her London Lovers series and although it's not part of the series we have a crossover of characters. We follow resident doctor Indie Porter as she attempts to do groundbreaking surgery on soccer player Camden Harris (he's a player on and off the pitch), following a bad tackle during a match. Indie has so many issues, issues that I didn't understand until later in the story, which meant I found her cold hearted and callous with Camden at times, and especially in her pursuit to lose her V card. Even though Camden was a player, I was very much sympathetic to him and his issues and I really loved his openness. He was the perfect book boyfriend. The chemistry between them both was swoon worthy. Indie's work ethics went out the window when she came across Camden's smoulder, and the doctor patient line was well and truly crossed. Once she finally came clean about her life and her feelings I found I actually really liked her. I am so looking forward to the rest of the brothers' stories, I just love these boys. The story was narrated in Duet, which really worked for me in thus instance. I loved the narrators (I've finally got used to the British accent in an audio, and although some annoy me, these worked for me). Twinnies story next I'm hoping

My first book by this author and I listened to Challenge on Audio.
I don't know if it was the audio version that had me laughing out loud, the way the narrator gave Cam the Cheekie chappie cockney character but I loved it and it would be interesting to see if reading the book would have the same effect.
The story though was great. Camden Harris is a rising star in British football, at a pinnacle in his career but an injury on the field results in a trip to the ER and in need of an operation.
Indie is the Doctor on duty when Cam is brought in, Cam on pain drugs and high thinks he is seeing a red-headed angel. Cam is charming, funny, cheeky and full of innuendoes. I loved his character.
Indi is a virgin and has a penis list that she drafted up with her friend, she is very specific of who she wants to lose her virginity to and eventually work through the list.
P 1 would be a player, a bad boy...
P 2 would be a romantic guy.
P 3 would be a mixture of P#1 & 2.
Personally, I didn't get the penis list, I thought it was silly for a 24-year-old to have such a list but it was a big part of the plot due to Indie pulling away from Cam wanting to carry on with her penis adventures before settling down.
There was a constant push and pull with the characters mainly on Indie's part, the girl just didn't know what she wanted or knew how to show her feelings so often coming across as cold.
Camden had been brought up in a big family where he had the love of his brothers, sister, and dad, indie, however, had no-one and this caring and showing emotion was a whole new concept for Indie.
In summary, Challenge is a great story, a lighthearted read that had hotness, laughter and a cheeky footballer who went from playboy to a one-woman man.
I will definitely listen to the next book in the series, the Harris brothers are so likable and funny i have already downloaded Keeper and plan on reading Endurance.
Recommended British sports romance and Audio
I fell in love with Camden and Indie when I first read Amy Daws’ Challenge a few months back. But to hear them in audio made me love them just that bit more.
Will Watt and Charlotte Cole give flawless performances and make listening to the story enjoyable and fun and emotional. And Martin Foster hits the mark with his portrayal of Dr Pritchard who gave me the heebie-jeebies in the book, but in audio had me truly creeped out - which means Martin succeeded in his role.
This is a fabulous story, a phenomenal audio book and EVERYONE should get on board and take the CHALLENGE 😉😂😂
