Summary

From Ella Frank’s Prime Time series and Brooke Blaine’s South Haven series comes an explosive spin-off of both worlds.

Sebastian “Bash” Vogel, the magnetic, cross-dressing CEO of AnaVoge, has long been a lone island when it comes to his personal life. Self-assured and playful, he’s never left wanting for suitors - but Bash isn’t looking for something permanent. He’s more than fulfilled with his company and his closest friends, and no one is going to shake up the status quo.

That is, until he’s thrown over the shoulder of one of Chicago’s finest and hauled out of a burning building.

Kieran Bailey, a sexy, hardworking lieutenant at Station 73, has been reaping the rewards of being crowned the city’s hottest fireman, which his crew never lets him forget. So many ladies, so little time. So when he rescues the latest damsel in distress, no one is more shocked than him to realize he’s played prince charming to another...prince.

But Bash isn’t like anyone Kieran has ever met, and soon his world is turned upside down as he becomes more intrigued by the enigmatic man from whom he can’t stay away.

They’re from two different worlds. This could never work. But what if...they dared to try?

Dare You is book one of the Dare to Try trilogy, which must be heard in order. Prior listening is not required but is always a fantastic idea for maximum enjoyment.

Loved the book!

I thought the book was great! The narrator was very good with the various characters and the funny moments in the book had me laughing and wondering if people thought I was losing my mind. Definitely recommend this book.

Good story. Good narration.

This story pulled me out of my comfort zone a little bit. I really don't have any interest in fashion. I started reading M/M romance because I like reading about people building emotional connections, but I dislike the aforementioned fashion commentary. I like Ella Frank's writing enough to tolerate descriptions of an evening dress and makeup though. I am also warming up to Brooke Blaine's writing style.

As usual with this writing team, the story is pure romance. Any plot is driven by the relationship between the main characters. Bash and Kieran are an interesting combination, and their personalities highlight the ridiculous nature of social stereotypes.

This was a entertaining read with low angst, and we get a chance to see glimpses of some characters from this writing duos other series. The narration was well performed and added a little spice to the story.

Enjoyable disappointing from these authors

I'd give this an over grade of C. These authors should be able to deliver better or maybe they are just running out of steam. Narration was quite good so there's that.
1. Plot was weak and not all that interesting
2. Bash was super disappointing. The worst of the flamboyant gay stereotype. No depth at all.
3. For his first MM sexual experience, Kieran dove in and didn't even blink. Hard to believe that there was no questioning at all. Very unrealistic. I want there to be more from these guys. With all the great audio books out there, I don't recommend starting the series. Knowing what I know now, I wish I hadn't spent the credit.

I loved it.

Bash and Kieran go together so well. I loved the story. How they met and how the friendship and the attraction grew. I'm ready for book 2. The Narration is perfect.

Dare You

This is the first book in the Dare to Try series. I am so excited to finally get Kieran Bailey’s book. I instantly fell in love with Bash. I love their connection. Just when things were starting to heat up between them the book ended. I was not ready for it to end like that. Perry Bishop and Wesley Paul did a fantastic job narrating this book.

Worth the Wait!!!

I have listened to the audio book at least six times! Great job gentleman! I have pre-ordered Dare Me, and as soon as Truth or Dare shows up to pre-order I will add it to my library as well. I could not have imagined a better performance! Surpassed my expectations! Thank you!

Good book but…

Great narration. Really good story. Is it Necessary to have two parts and ending the way it did? No.
