Lili Valente delivers another amusing story from the Magnificent Bastard Consulting. I loved the first book Magnificent Bastard! It was one of the most hilarious and sexy stories I've listened too in 2016, and recommend listening to it first to get an appreciation for MBC. As soon as I learned Spectacular Rascal was out, I immediately downloaded it.
I enjoyed Valente's unique writing style, humor, multiple POV's (even Cat's precious fur baby), and all the texts, letters and emails used for the flashback scenes. Told mainly from Aidan's POV, listening to all his inner dialogue really made this a fun listen. He may look like a lumberjack, but his character was affectionate, easy, carefree, sexy, tough and just plain fun. Due to the history between Cat and himself, he was reluctant to take her "case" on, but quickly becomes her knight in shiny armor when he gets a first hand glimpse of Cat's ex and what she's up against. The chemistry and sex scenes between Aidan and Catherine were hot! My checks still hurt from all the hours spent smiling while listening to this one.
Both David Ledoux and Lili Valente performances were good. Not only did Valente deliver a spectacular story, but she did an outstanding job narrating the female's POV. Ledoux's has a great voice and was a good fit for Aidan's character.
Definitely a credit worthy listen! Can't wait for Miraculous Mess!

Where does Spectacular Rascal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I'm lucky in that I really hit pay dirt with the audiobooks that I listen to, and Spectacular Rascal is right up there with the best of them. It's got everything from irreverent humor to scorchingly hot love scenes to crime caper, and it all just works together.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Spectacular Rascal?
The first night that Aidan and Cat spent together is pretty memorable, but I have to say that all of the texts between all of the characters are my favorite moments. The one that really made me laugh out loud was the one near the end of the book between Bash, Penny, Aidan, and Shane; Lili has a real knack for the witty repartée, and it just shines through in the texting scenes.
What does David Ledoux and Lili Valente bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
This was my first time listening to an audiobook with David as the narrator, and he just nailed it. The ease with which he brought each different character to life was very well done, and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to him. Having Lili in there was a pleasant surprise; she's a lady of many talents, and captured the essence of Cat just perfectly.
Any additional comments?
SPECTACULAR RASCAL is a fast-paced, super-fun, sexy as sin listen, and I couldn't recommend it any more highly. 5 stars all the way.

Great characters and the long term relationship that unfolded was nice but it was easily forgettable therefore only 3* across the board.
Loved Fang the Chihuahua.
