Publisher's Summary

Five coworkers. Four drinks. Three glances. Two fleeting smiles. One dare. A dare that will change my life. That's all it takes to send me plummeting into the arms of the mysterious Holt Hamilton. Behind his crystal blue eyes is a secret, one that screams danger but calls to me anyway. My name is Saige Phillips. I never walk away from a dare.

THIS WAS SO SO MUCH MORE THAN I DARED HOPE FOR

Saige is still carrying the heartbreak and memories of a tragedy that happened to her when she was a naive and tender 13 yr old celebrating her birthday (nothing sexual but very emotional) and the drama of that day has now built an impenetrable wall around her heart. Fast-forward 10 years - she still has constant nightmares about that day which forces her to re-live everything but now she's a successful Interior Designer for a prestigious Company that custom designs mega-rich client's every whims and desires for their tailor made jets. Saige is good at her job and loves it - along with the friendship, support and banter that she gets from her small tight group of co-workers. However, celebrating with them in a Bar one night, leads to a game of Truth or Dare that will bring her happiness, joy, passion, sexual bliss and a relationship that, brick-by-brick, slowly reveals her heart once more. This was all accomplished by the handsome, sexy, kind and thoughtful Holt Hamilton... her dare, her self-imposed compulsory 'no labels' fling... and her Boss - who happens to own the Company too.

Holt knew all about Saige from reports but his heart just wasn't prepared for the instant impact she had on his senses the moment they met... and the more he got to know her the deeper he fell - until there was simply no turning back. But sharing his life, his home and his heart didn't mean he had to share his part in a terrible past that connected them both. So he kept his secrets and guarded them closely.... until the past walked back into their lives and left devastation, gut-wrenching turmoil, heartbreak, shattered trust and empty tomorrows.

The first thing I noticed about this awesome listen was the many detailed colorful descriptions which gave clarity to each of the scenes and brought them to life. Saige is a strong yet vulnerable heroine and likeable too, Holt is perfection.... he's not a womanizer or an arrogant ass - instead he's EVERYTHING you hope for in a drool-worthy hero and the array of secondary characters adds humor, light and fun to the listen. Their chemistry was instant and the sex wasn't far behind but I've got no complaints with the 'insta' relationship here because it left a lot of room for the relationship to blossom and character development and for them to reach the boundaries to Saige's heart which no man has ever crossed. It also left room for tender, sweet and touching times that you know, along with Holt, that there will be a reckoning when the big secret is out and things will inevitably come crashing down around them. There is a HEA at the end of their roller-coaster journey - but it could have been longer because I really wasn't ready to say goodbye to this couple and their hard won happiness. Dual POV's and the narration was great... but I did like Kas Vadim's sexy voice a little more.

Worth a credit? Yes, yet again Rebecca Shea has delivered yet another beautiful and breathtaking story where love conquers and triumphs - this time it's over painful pasts, haunting memories, a terrible legacy, heartbreak, betrayal and broken hearts. This listen absolutely ticked ALL my boxes.... and I hope it ticks all yours too.

Always take the Dare!

Amazing listen! A great book by Rebecca Shea. There are some deliciously steamy scenes (#HowHotIsHolt), but the love story is so much deeper than I expected. I loved both of the narrators, but I liked listening to Saige the most. She put so much emotion and feeling into the story. I will definitely be listening to more books narrated by Kas Vadim and Savannah Peachwood!

Great Overall listen!!! Narration not so much!!

Savannah is just a little too dramatic for me every word is overly emotional if that's even a word. Lol The story was great it’s one of those you do get lost in with all the feels. Glad it was a part of the romance package. 😉

Very hard to get through this book

Hard to listen. Savannah Peachwood reads as though the audience is in Kindergarten. Awful

Would you consider the audio edition of Dare Me to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version but I would consider the audio better. Savannah Peachwood and Kas Vidam did a great job at voicing the characters and bringing the story to life.

Which scene was your favorite?

When she takes the dare of course!

Any additional comments?

There were times I wanted to knock some sense into the heroine but I also understood the hurt she'd been through. The hero was just perfect, Iove that he didn't give up so easily.

Narrator Killed it

The narration was extremely bad! The male was okay but the female was a drain. I was switching back and fourth with speed on her because she was reading so slow. I'm not sure who told her this was a good idea or how it got pass production.

The female narrator was....awful

The story is a little over the top but it's a romance so I can suspend disbelief and appreciate the angst and improbably plot.

The male narrator was easy to listen to.

Savannah Peachwood was dreadful. She dragged out her pronunciation and every sentence was saturated with emotion. There was no differentiation between Saige in throes of passion, in a rage over betrayal or brushing her teeth. I took to listening to her chapters at 1.5x or 2x rate. Remarkably that actually made her narration more tolerable.

Horrendous female narrator!

A poor narrator can destroy a book, proven once again in Dare Me. The female narrator reads word-by-word and elongates words - what is that about? I truly am struggling with finishing this book because of they way she reads. She reminds me of a child just learning to read (as they read each word separately, and then pause before reading the next word). It was pure torture. It killed my interest.
