Audiobook Review: More Than Dare You (Reed Family Reckoning, #6). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

More Than Dare You by Shayla Black

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I dared her to spend a hot, no-strings night with me. Now I’m determined to keep her forever.

I’m Trace Weston, recently reformed womanizer. In the blink of an eye, I went from busy bachelor to full-time single dad. My life was already complicated before my sister-in-law asked me to show off my bedroom skills to her bestie, who’s wanting to experience real pleasure now that her one-and-only long-term relationship is over. Gorgeous Masey Garrett isn’t my “usual.” She’s shy, sassy, driven, and incredibly kind. Suddenly I’m falling fast…but she’s only mine for a night.

What’s a former player to do? Change the rules.

Now she’s under my roof night after night, letting me into her body and her life. Her heart? Not so much. She loves my newborn son. Me? I can’t tell. I’m pulling out all the stops to win her over, but she’s not taking me seriously. Other than passion, how can I reach her? Every attempt only pulls me deeper under her spell. Sure, I could drop an L bomb…except that once imploded my heart. But when her past collides with my desired future, can I risk everything and dare Masey to stay with me forever?

The Hero: Trace Weston – he is a charter boat operator in Hawaii and a former playboy and brother to a big time NFL player who is going on a five month dry spell after being left with full custody of his son Ranger whom he had with a one-night stand. He is doing a favor for his brother and sister-in-law by having a one night stand with Macey Garrett.

The heroine: Macey Garrett – she is a beauty influencer from Los Angeles and former sorority sister to Trace’s sister-in-law, Harlow. She had dated a guy named Tom for the last ten years, since she was fifteen years old and right after her Dad died, Tom broke up with her after telling her she was lacking in bed. So she is in need of a self-esteem boost and also wants some tips and tricks because she plans on dating her hot neighbor when she gets back home.

The Story: Trace is all in on the plan to help out Macey, especially after seeing the beautiful woman and Macey was happy to work with Trace to get the confidence boost she is sorely in need of. She is just looking for a good time and Trace is only too happy to oblige especially after hearing about what a douche her ex-boyfriend was and how he treated Macey.

This book is told in dual points of view via solo narration and is narrated by Teddy Hamilton who has a sexy masculine voice and is one of my favorite narrators. Teddy also does a pretty good female voice so is one of the few narrators I don’t mind listening to via solo narration.

The story is good, though the plans for a one night stand turn into bigger feelings a bit too quickly for my tastes. I like the fact that the Hero starts to want more right away, though I just wish they would spend a day or two apart before he is ready to want a full blown relationship. Though I did like both characters and there were some great supporting characters and side storylines as well.
