Publisher's Summary

Winner of the #SoundsHot Steamy Story Contest, a thrilling romantic novella brimming with raw emotional power - available in audio first! 

For rock climber Wren Elkine, risking her life every day is an inescapable part of being on the Search and Rescue team, where she saves stranded mountain climbers from certain death. But her heart faces its greatest danger yet when she meets famous daredevil Clay Arden. Wren has no patience for thrill seekers like Clay who risk their lives for an adrenaline rush, so she writes him off...until he makes her an offer she can’t refuse. Clay will pay her a hefty sum to accompany him on his greatest stunt yet: climbing Morocco's perilous Ramah Spire without a rope or harness. 

As they travel to the site, Wren finds herself falling for the sexy, free-spirited adventurer. But how can she fall in love with someone who may not survive? And if he doesn’t make it, will she ever be the same?

The Highest Romantic Peak Imaginable

An unbelievable collection of human emotions, growth, and strength. Hard to believe this is a debut work, but easy to say that it will have you demanding to hear another story of Lily Berlin Dodd’s soon. She has truly summited the romantic literary experience with this one and is a great guide for every listener.

Short and Perfect

It was everything a romance should be and everything a story should be. It doesn't give you the answers it leads you to them and let's you get them yourself, and it is so worth it.

Incredible story, fantastic narration

This novel held all of my favorite characteristics of a strong female lead and a ‘bad boy’ who’s not really bad.

I love it most though because the characters built one another up and allowed one another to become fully realized as individuals. They helped one another become more themselves. And isn’t that what real love should be? The rock beneath you that holds you up,!that allows you to climb higher?

Great listen!

This audible original is just what I needed! It's not too long and the story is wonderful. Lily Berlin Dodd weaves the story of Clay and Wren. Clay is a climber and everything that drives Wren crazy. She feels he is reckless, irresponsible and doesn't take other's feelings into consideration. When Clay is set to climb the mountain of all mountains, Wren is asked to come along as his first line of aid and she discovers things are not always what they seem. I loved this short. Part takes place in Morocco with beautiful imagery. The relationship between Wren and Clay is slow burning, their banter fun and the story line a little suspenseful and a lot thrilling. Narrated by Ali Ahn, it is brought to life with great voicing and excitement.

A Promising Start from a New Writer

Search and Rescue is the winner of the recent #SoundsHot Steamy Story Contest.

Wren Elkine went into search and rescue after her older sister died in a climbing accident. Daredevil Clay Arden shows up in her national park to scale one of the peaks there without equipment. Wren butts heads with him, calling him 'selfish' in his risk-taking.

By its nature, this is a short story/novella. Dodd did a great job setting the scene and sketching her characters within the structure of the novella. If anything, this makes me want to read more from her. And my only negative is the insta-love; it happened a little too quickly to be believable.

I really enjoyed this story. But as I said in the title, I want more. I hope Lily Berlin Dodd has more stories on the way.

Lots of impact in a short story!

I can’t believe this narrated book was just over 2 hours. The character development and story line are incredibly complete. I felt I knew and understood the motivation of both main characters. Of course they fell in love in record time, but what do you expect in a short romance novella.

I highly recommend this book.
The narrator does a good job with the characters as well.

Different and fun

It took me 10-15 minutes to get into the story, but I’m glad I stuck with it. The setting and characters were different and interesting, and the descriptions were great. I hope Lily Berlin Dodd keeps writing and brings us more strong, creative and longer works.
