After a horrible experience in her youth, she has spent her life trying to make all the right choices, pouring her energy into being the best possible single mother to her son. But though Rhett doesn't seem to be husband and stepfather material, he awakens emotions in her that are as frightening as they are powerful.

I love the strength of family in the Dare series. I would like to see fewer thoughts regarding sexual encounters.

Sorry I listened

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I'm sure there are plenty of people who like it, but frankly, I was rooting for Rhett to tell Abby to go to hell.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I'll probably finish the series since I already purchased it because I liked the first 3 books.

What does Em Eldridge bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I like her style of narrating and I would almost always rather listen to a book than read it.

What character would you cut from The Holiday Serenade?

Abby :)

Any additional comments?

I understand the need for some angst, but I just couldn't take it anymore. I felt like Abby had a stick up the butt and wasn't worth the effort of trying to get past her whining.
