Publisher's Summary

When you've been screwed over by Mr. Wrong, let a spectacular rascal show you how good it feels to be bad.

You know the smooth, successful New York businessman type? Well, I'm the other guy - the one you don't bring home to mama. The tattooed, rough-around-the-edges, 100% primal badass.

As the resident bad boy of Magnificent Bastard Consulting, I've got what it takes to make sure your dangerous dick of an ex thinks twice before he knocks on your door again.

Or I thought I did, until I meet my latest client....

Now my wild, sexy, one-that-got-away is looking up at me with her big green eyes, daring me to take on an ex as dick-ish and dangerous as hers. But all I want to do is take her - again and again.

Soon Cat and I are setting sex marathon records and medaling in the orgasm Olympics, all while staying one step ahead of her former Mr. Wrong. Everything is golden, except for the fact that I'm falling hard for this woman and all she wants is more of Curved for her Pleasure (trust me, the nickname fits).

Now I have to prove to Cat that I'm nothing like the dangerous man she left behind, and do it all before our time runs out. Considering her ex is with the mob, if we're not careful, that could be sooner than either one of us thinks.

Warning: Spectacular Rascal is a sexy, standalone romantic comedy told from the hero's point of view. No cliffhanger. Lots of dirty talk.

    Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!

    "Steamy, Sexy, Witty Romantic Comedy!"

    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!

    "Dashing Rascal"

    Loved this one from beginning to Miraculous end. This book was entertaining on all levels. it seemed to go by so very fast. I wanted more!!! More sex, more love, more ink, just more. narration was amazingly on point. now I guess we will have to wait for more when we get to know the Miraculous Mess!

    "Such An Enjoyable Book"
    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.

    "Simply Spectacular!"
    Would you listen to Spectacular Rascal again? Why?

    Yes! This book has me laughing out loud, I absolutely loved it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Spectacular Rascal?

    The reading of the text messages between Aidan and Bash was hysterical.


    Which character – as performed by David Ledoux and Lili Valente – was your favorite?

    David Ledoux reads the vast majority of the book so I guess he was my favorite. He brought so much to the character and really did a fantastic job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I wish I could have just listened to it all at once but life gets in the way.


    Any additional comments?

    After reading this book I knew what to expect from the story, but hearing it out loud was so much funnier. I would highly recommend this audiobook.

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    Story
    "A SECOND CHANCE FOR HUMOR, HEART, HEAT & LOVE"

    If you're looking for a Rom/Com then you've probably just found your next listen.. because this has some very funny scenes in it. But humor isn't the only thing that makes this such an enjoyable listen - there's a feisty sassy Heroine, a sexy Alpha Hero, some steamy sex scenes, there's a dash of suspense and danger, a Mob connected ex that won't go away and some very sleak and clever banter between Aidan (aka Curved) and Catherine (aka Cat, Red and Panties). They first met at College when they belonged to the same Dashers Club, got up to all sorts of antics and quickly became best-friends.. but not lifetime friends because, before things could heat up between them, Aidan walked away. Aidan is pondering over his lost friend and the lost opportunities there while he goes to meet MBC's new client and suddenly he sees the very face that's been haunting his thoughts.. Cat - the girl he didn't realize he loved.. the girl he'd left behind. Only now she's no longer an innocent girl and now she's in some serious trouble.. trouble with a capital T and only Aidan can sort it out.

    This is a second chance at love story with some flashbacks to their past friendship told from quick-witted and crazy archived letters and texts showing just how tight Curved and Panties were, how well they got along and what they each meant to one another 11 years previously.. before Aidan walked away from the best thing in his life. This book picks up where Magnificent Bastard left off but you don't need to listen to that one first as this is easily a standalone listen. Bash and Penny (from the previous book) made appearances and it also had a sweet dog named Fang. Told from Aidan's POV but a few Chapters were from other characters. Good narration.

    Worth a credit? The feeling of togetherness between the H and H really stood out and so too did their off the charts chemistry and so the relationship quickly developed because of it.. but it was easy to understand why these two clicked straight off when you hear the depth to their history together. It's a fun listen, an enjoyable listen, a very entertaining listen and YES a creditworthy one too.

    "I was not captured"

    This on was not my cup of tea. The relationship between Cat and Aidan did not capture me, I just didn't believe in their love story. It was very funny but I found myself comparing it to other friends to lovers stories that I enjoyed like The Pact and Sincerely Carter.

    It also did not help that David narrated about 90% of the book. I wish I could have heard more from Cat.

    I did not like David LeDoux for this character he sounds too old and not sexy for this hero. he sounds too old. Sorry.. David.. but this character needed someone with some Gene si cua!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    the only nice thing is that i caught up with Bash and Penny.
