"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

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.
The descriptives are either entirely too descriptive (mundane, long), or detail is skipped over making the rest of the story lack.
The overly-underly sexed characters also pull away from the story. I get this is a romance, but nothing harlequin about it. Stick em in a room and let em paw each other. The over "build-up" is boring.
Putting the bad story-telling aside, OMG who was the editor???? He/she needs to reimburse Nelson for services NOT rendered. The typos, the miscued punctuation, the missed words, the repeat words/phrases (the the, her her - among many) are very distracting. I have to stop reading with the flow, and figure out what was intended, or go back and see if I missed something somewhere. I feel like the story was voice-typed and never read through, or worse, self-edited. Our own mistakes in our writing are generally harder to find.
This may sound harsh, but when a natural editor attempts to read through a story like this, it becomes a headache; more of a job than a joy.
I am so glad this was a free book, otherwise, I'd be sending the author a bill for reading (and editing) the book.
There are many free books on Amazon, and I've read several. I've enjoyed most of them, and many have prompted me to purchase other books by the same author (Jana DeLeon and Stephanie Bond are wonderful examples). I believe that's the purpose of free books. Nelson won't be getting any of my business.
Lou now felt ready to grow up and show her overbearing father that she was mature enough to make her own decisions and none of those decisions included marrying for the sake of a business merger!
Sam Rawlings has a dream and that is start his own magazine but until that dream comes true he is happy to guide people on their self planned adventures. He has specific rules like no mingling with the client, definitely no romantic involvements and a strict no-no to any cases where there is even a slight risk of damage to his reputation and business! But all these rules that he has always followed are soon forgotten when he meets and agrees to escort Lou on her own adventure. Estimating her to be an easy to please client proves the biggest mistake for him and Sam is soon shown a different side of Lou. Instead of guiding Lou on the adventure of her life he finds himself in an adventure of his own. Despite all warning signals, he is enamored by her and sparks fly between them.
But would his love be enough to keep Lou in his life?
Would she truly be able to leave all her wealth and her father to be with him?
Or when her adventure was complete, would she simply go back and play the part of a dutiful daughter?
Rhonda Nelson spins an entertaining tale in her book, Double Dare. A light and breezy romance, I loved the simple yet crisp style of writing with just the right mix of humor, wit and seriousness. The character of Lou and Sam are well developed and their chemistry is sensual. I also enjoyed the character of Jaynes, Lou's driver who though he is a spy for her father but still has a soft spot for her and helps Lou in escaping from her father.
A great leisure read and an enjoyable time pass, I give Double Dare a 4 out of 5. If you love interesting and light romances then this is the book for you. :)
