Publisher's Summary

Can 10 dares help Melinda loosen up, conquer stress, and find love? Or will they push her over the edge?

Melinda Spencer had everything, but now her life has fallen apart. Her two best friends, Mikey and Joanie, are worried. Melinda’s been acting even more highly strung than usual. They decide to stage an intervention. Something to help her lighten up and take her mind off things: 10 crazy dares. After all, they say laughter is the best medicine.

Never one to squelch on a dare, Melinda accepts her challenge. The dares look simple enough: knock on a door and run away, tend her lady garden, flash a stranger...and if it gets Joanie and Mikey off her back about loosening up, it’ll be worth it. But with a sexy vet, a troublesome ex, and a village full of nutters hot on her trail, has Melinda finally bitten off more than she can chew?

10 Dares is a hilarious romp about a strung-out single mum trying to hold everything together when life is throwing her lemons as curve balls. This stand-alone romantic comedy has a happy ending and no cliff-hanger and can also be enjoyed as part of The Power of Ten Series.

laugh out loud awesome!

I loved this book! It is laugh out loud funny and you don't want to stop listening to it. One of my favorite quotes "Thirsty Thursday leads to Fragile Friday." The narrator brings the characters to life and adds more depth to the story and words. This was my first book by this author but not my last!!

Hilarious and sexy!

This was a really fun listen! I love the narrator and the book was awesome! I literally laughed out loud so many times!!!

Apparently, I’m reading the series in the incorrect order. But it doesn’t matter. Each book can stand alone. I am going to be disappointed when lm done with all of the “10” series.

I’m off to download another of this series.

Another LOL Rom-Com from Emily James

The second book in the Power of Ten book series is just as good as the first. The story is fantastic and takes little twists and turns that keep the listener intrigued throughout. Emily James has such a wonderful way with words. Little things like nicknames for the characters used throughout (Viking King and Shortcake) are magnificent and add a lightness to the story. She knows how to turn phrases and have you laughing out loud immediately. I also love how characters from the first book were integrated into this one, creating a small rom-com world. Kim Bretton is also fabulous in her narration, adding enthusiasm and excitement to the story as it progresses.

If you have read or listened to the first book, you won't be disappointed in this one. Even if you pick up this one as the first, it still works well as a stand-alone. I highly recommend this one.

Dare to Laugh

Great story about being awkward in life.

Dealing with a new house, small children, an ex husband, and even the oh-so-perfect PTA mom isn’t easy. Being presented with a list of dares by your friends who are trying to help you get your life back on track is even harder. Add in sexy Viking vet and this is the perfect combination of funny and sexy. Thank you for the great story!

Completely fell for this book!!!

Loved this book!!! It's not my usual genre, but I couldn't help falling in love with the characters and the story line. Even the narrator was perfect. There were a few times, listening in my car, that I found myself reacting to the characters and scenes, as if they could actually hear me. Lol. I'll definitely be adding this collection to my library. I can't wait to read the rest!

A fun and clean RomCom with an amazing narrator

I am new to author Emily James and I haven't been disappointed with this series.
Melinda is a strong woman just doing her best while struggling to keep things together for her kids after her divorce. In this 2nd book it's now Melinda's turn for 10 dares that are created by her best friends. The dares are fun and full of surprises that really made me want to hug and laugh with Melinda and her friends.
Emily James is great at building the characters so you come to love everything about them and it's easy to feel like they are real. I enjoyed this book a lot and can't wait to listen to the third book. If you are looking for a fun, funny and clean romantic read, this is the series for you!
(this book can be a standalone as well)

This is the second book in the series of THE POWER OF TEN.

Perfection!

I can’t remember the last time I have laughed so hard or related to characters so much! Ever feel like anything that can go wrong, will? If yes, these books are for you! I loved every single second. So many moments where I couldn’t decide between laughing or being embarrassed for them! Definitely must listens and so far my top pick for 2020!

funny

I really enjoyed this book. It was fun with great characters, great banter and great chemistry. I found myself laughing out loud with Melinda and her antics. The narrator was new to me but I loved her voice and her British accent.

Fantastic fun!

With the wonderful, resilient, optimistic Mel, along with Mikey and Jo steering her ship of dares, Emily James has brought us another delightful, very funny series of mishaps, adventures in village-land and a gorgeous Viking sized vet. I have laughed so much and generally had my spirits lifted, both by the story and by the excellent narrating skills of Kim Bretton. Totally fabulous 💖💖💖💖💖

I enjoyed it

10 Dares is the second book in The Power of Ten series and I loved it. This novel was hilarious, steamy, fun and sweet and I was hooked from beginning to end. This romantic comedy had delightful, engaging main characters you can't help but love, quirky amusing secondary characters, humorous witty banter and a storyline that was realistic and relatable. I could not put this book down and I would highly recommend it to all lovers of romantic comedies.

I listened to the Audible version of this novel which was narrated by Kim Bretton. She did a fantastic job infusing humor and emotion into the story. She created varying voices for the different characters and brought the story to life. It was a pleasure listening to her narrate this novel.

Hilarious!

From the beginning, as Melinda recounted the events of the prior evening, I smiled or giggled constantly. The laughs only got bigger as the story progressed. This is my first book by Emily James but I am totally going to read or listen to the other stories in this series. There was a perfect mix of emotion, as you feel bad for what Melinda had to go through, and humor, as she let her hair down to experience life after the divorce (full of wardrobe malfunctions). I really liked “the Viking”, aka the vet, aka Toby. The secondary characters, especially her friends, are awesome and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

I requested and received the audiobook. Kim Bretton was a fantastic, high energy narrator with the perfect accent. She has good overall control of her voice so she is able to play multiple characters. She sounded like she was having so much fun reading the book. I loved the narration.

Great friends

What a fun and crazy group of friends. This book might have taken just a bit to get my full attention but I really enjoyed it after all. Poor thing goes through some pretty embarrassing and aggravating situations. The narration was great, lots of enthusiasm. I recommend this series. No cliffhangers.

The Viking King.

I adored this book it was so much fun to listen to. The Viking King was a total heartthrob. Plus Peach Farm sounded such a cute little place to live.

The narrator made this book for me!

This is a fantastic follow up to 10 dates. Brilliantly narrated by Kim Bretton who entices you into the story with her wonderful character performances. You feel like you know each character personally and can’t wait to hear the next chapter of the story. Can’t wait to listen to 10 lies!
