Book Description

"Quirky, irreverent and laugh-out-loud hilarious, Rhonda Nelson speaks my language!" --New York Times bestselling author Vicki Lewis Thompson


Vintage Rhonda Nelson! Though Rhonda is known more recently for her sexy, romantic comedies she began her career writing funny, heart-warming romance for Kensington's Precious Gems line. The books were only sold in Wal-Mart and spent less than a month on the shelves. Now, thanks to the wonderful world of digital publishing, they're available again.

Runaway bride Louisa Honeycut is looking for a quick escape when she passes the Double Dare, Inc sign and the slogan "Are you ready for the time of your life?" seems like divine intervention. Sheltered by her overbearing father, Louisa has years of catching up to do and can think of no better person than gorgeous Sam Rawlins to show her. Is she ready for the time of her life? Hell, yes.

Ordinarily unflappable adventure guide Sam Rawlins makes his living showing the wealthy how to have fun, but nothing in his experience could have prepared him for the "adventure" Louisa Honeycut asks for. He might be showing Louisa the time of her life, but the quirky little snack-cake heiress is soon turning Sam's own life upside down...and perversely, he likes the new vantage point.

4.0 out of 5 stars It'll push all the right buttons... December 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Double Dare sucks you into the adventure of Lou from page one. If a sexy, fun, fast-paced love story is what you're craving, then this is the one for you. The story is a quick read, but in a good way. The author doesn't skimp on the action or the romance. The chemistry between Lou and Sam wasn't forced. It came naturally and that's always a plus in a romance.

My only complaints were the amount of typos. The misspelling and incorrect word usage kept tossing me out of a well-written story. 'Same' instead of 'Sam'. 'He' instead of 'her'. Those and the fact that Sam used "Aw, hell..." a little bit too much. The expression kind of lost its oomph along the way. This is why I gave Double Dare four stars instead of five.

I'd highly recommend this story if you're a fan of the steamy romance genre. It'll push all the right buttons for you. Honest.

2.0 out of 5 stars A good editor is worth their weight in gold December 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The author cant seem to make up her mind on what her characters names are. Chad or Chat? Lou or Lo? Sam or Same? Then there are the other mistakes that got missed, like what are other pales no man has touched? I think it should read places. The concept of the book was interesting but bad editing ruins it. Sloppy and unready books almost make me want to return to paper- at least then expecting quality isnt unreasonable.

It may be a good story. However, it is hard to know through the thousands of grammatical errors! If a story is worth telling, it should be worth telling correctly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very light romance, idiotic plot December 29, 2011
By North
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Poor little rich girl Louise does not want to disappoint Daddy so she agrees to marry Chad, for the sake of Dad's upcoming merger with Chad's mother's company.

At the beginning of the novel, Louise leaves Chad at the altar and escapes in her father's limousine. While being driven around by dad's chauffeur, she notices a travel agent, specializing in extreme travel and decides that this is the perfect way to get away from it all and realize all her life's dreams (getting drunk, smoking, and giving a cop the one-finger salute being some of her lofty ideas ).

This has to be one of the most annoying, spoiled, immature heroine in the history of romance novels. The fact that she sometimes realizes her mistakes cannot save the plot. If I were her father, I would cut her off her money and see just how she manages. Brainless as she is, that, at least, would have been an entertaining novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finding love while Bungie Jumping December 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought The Runaway Bride with Julia Roberts was a cute movie especially with the quirky friends and the beauty salon called Roll Up and Die - Amusing. This book does not have the quirky friends, but it is a fun afternoon diversion.

Louisa is being forced to marry a man she doesn't love in order for their family's businesses to merge. She runs away at the altar and into Sam's life. Sam organizes high action and risky adventures for clients seeking a thrill. He decides to help Louisa with her adventure request, despite his better judgment and his strong attraction to her, and immediately regrets it. While watching the news that night in Florida, Sam realizes who Louisa is and what she has done and that her overprotective, extremely wealthy father believes she has been kidnapped.

Louisa wants to enjoy her freedom from her father's demands and has a list of things she wants to accomplish while she is "missing": get drunk, smoke a cigarette, and lose her virginity. Sam has seen the list and does not want to be the one to sleep with her in order for her to cross it off her list. He wants it to be real, but he knows he has no chance with this rich, beautiful girl.

The story is predictable, but fun. Some issues I had while reading were 1) the dichotomy of Louisa's father being overprotective yet forcing her into an unwanted marriage, 2) Sam being a fine physical specimen and yet eating so many snack cakes. No guy who takes care of his body eats like that and 3) the ending where Louisa is the risk taker and not Sam - incredible.

Overall, I enjoyed the story enough to recommend it as a light predictable diversion. If you are looking for something more, this book is not for you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Proofread and hire an editor June 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A bit redundant on my part, since everyone is commenting on the sheer volume of errors in this book, but really. Glad it was free because it was ridiculous. Several errors per page! Besides that, the idea of the story seemed interesting, but it was clipped, not well developed and too much focus on sex, like two animals in heat. Left the story line and plot behind to focus on sexual descriptions. I need to research this publisher because obviously they will publish anything and I have written much better stories than this one. Reading the 'about this author' made me snort to think she'd received awards and published 35 books. If they are all like this one, I shudder to think what passes as literature these days.

4.0 out of 5 stars If You Like Your Romance Funny, You're In For A Treat December 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I've been meaning to pick up some of Rhonda Nelson's books at the urging of a good friend and never seem to remember once I'm at the bookstore. I was thrilled to stumble across this one as a free download while looking for something else. I don't think I'll have any more trouble remembering to look for this author's books next time I'm at the bookstore or looking for some great reads for my Kindle.

I was a little put off by the other reviews that tore this book apart because of typos, but I'm so glad I decided to go ahead and download it. It's free, so what did I have to lose? Actually, I had about three hours to lose, because once I started reading the afternoon was gone. Yes, the typos are there and they were distracting, but it's a testimony to the author's skill that the story was much more interesting than the typos were distracting.

The characters are believable, unique and wonderfully human. Some romances fall flat because the characters are two-dimensional sterotypes that I just can't identify with or even like. Nelson's heroine is a woman I would gladly sit on my front porch with, drinking sweet tea, trading embarrassing stories and laughing until we cried.

I haven't laughed out loud while reading a romance in quite a long time. This book reminded me why I started reading romances years ago. If you enjoy really good romantic comedies, you're going to love this story. Forget what the other reviews say about the typos. If your sense of humor is working, you'll really appreciate this book. I had a blast and I think I've found a new favorite author.
