Audiobook Review: Dude in Distress by Helena Hunting. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Dude in Distress by Helena Hunting

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A short story from the NYT best-selling author of the Shacking Up series about a road trip that started with a broken-down car and ended with a questionable motel, an indoor campout, and a set of Kama Sutra sheets.


I thought I was helping a damsel in distress. 

Turns out my damsel was actually a hot guy with rock solid forearms, blue eyes reminiscent of an oasis in a desert, and some seriously bad luck. 


My day started with a bang. 

The kind that left me stranded at the side of the road in the middle of the desert.

At least until a knight in shining armor shows up in a rusted-out convertible and saves the day. Said knight also happens to be a car savvy woman with legs for days, and a penchant for adventure.

Dude in Distress

Short and Sweet!

The heroine: Nevah – she is an auto mechanic from New York who specializes in restoring classic cars. She is currently driving across the country for her boss in a recent purchase (an old Cadillac El Dorodo convertible) to see if it is worth restoring. On the trip, she is planning to stop off in Colorado for her sisters birthday.

The Hero: Lawson – He was in California for business (he works for his father’s doll company, his specialty is social media. He also does some real estate on the side. While in California he decided to purchase a classic Alfa Romeo Spider convertible and drive it across the country to Long Island when he breaks down in Nevada near the border of Utah.

The Story: Nevah sees Lawson on the side of the road and thinks she is seeing a damsel in distress and decides to stop to help since they are in the Nevada desert. After stopping she finds that it is a dude in distress, not a damsel. Though he is a nice guy so she helps him anyway.

This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration and was narrated by Rose Dioro and Jacob Morgan. They are both terrific narrators and I really like both their voices so this was a great listen. Rose has a voice that sounds feminine and age appropriate and she does a good male voice as well. I love Jacob’s deep gravely voice and he is great at letting emotions show through his voice.

This was a very short audiobook but the story was terrific and it seemed like it was much longer than it was. I was impressed with how much detail and story there were in such a short book. Lawson surprised me more than once and I really liked him and I loved that Nevah was such a strong independent woman. I don’t usually read or listen to such short stories, but lately I have been falling asleep easier while listening to audiobooks, so I put this one on as I went to sleep last night and was pleasantly surprised.
