Dare Me Once: Angel Fire Falls, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Love is a risk worth taking in this sizzling romance about secrets and second chances...
Scarlett Devereaux’s life on the Gulf Coast went from riches to rags so scandalously fast that she barely had time to kiss her Jimmy Choos goodbye. Now, with a new alias (Lily Barns), a new budget (tighter than a pair of Spanx), and a new job on the vacation island of Angel Fire Falls, she’s daring to reinvent herself.
Single dad Trace Remington is devoted first and foremost to raising his young son, who has Asperger’s. With flying his floatplane and salvaging his family’s island resort too, he has time for little else. His brothers think he needs a break from his all-work-no-play lifestyle, so they goad him into action. In response to their dare, Trace asks a sexy tourist for her number, only to discover afterward that she’s the resort’s brilliant new hospitality manager.
The sparks of flirtation soon ignite into a flame too hot to ignore. But Lily and Trace both have pasts that threaten to tear them apart. Now, they’ll need to admit their secrets to each other...or risk ending their relationship before it really begins.

Scarlett Devereax has found herself in the middle of turmoil and in order to get away from it she decides to leave her old life behind and go by a new name, Lily Barns. In her new live she finds that she has to live on a very tight budget and in order to do this she needs to get a job. When she takes a job on the vacation island of Angel Fire Falls she didn’t realize how quickly her life would change.
Trace Remington find himself in a situation he never thought he would. Trace finds himself as a single dad to a son that has Asperger and he is totally devoted to him. Thanks to being able to fly he comes back home to fly his float plane to help keep his family resort a float. His younger brothers came to the conclusion that he needs a little fun in his life so that made him make a bet that he could not get a lady’s number and make a date with her. In order to win this bet Trace ran into a sexy tourist and asked for her number later to realize that it is the new hospitality manager for his families’ resort.
As the two-start working with each other the harmless flirtation start to ignite into something much hotter. When their past start to surface and they have to admit secrets will tear them apart or will they work through it together? You will have to read it to find out!
There was no violence in this book and there was some sexual content. Shelly has an amazing writing style and I highly recommend this book, I could not put it down and finished it in a day even with working my full-time job lol.
“It was the kind of face that made a girl look twice. Made a girl sigh all over. Made a girl want to do stupid things….. like search his body for tattoos, then outline them with her tongue”
I have read every book that Shelly Alexander has written thus far and really enjoyed all of them, but this was my absolute favorite. I found myself struggling to put it down because I needed to know what happened with Trace and Lily and Ben – to the point where I took my Kindle with me when I was cooking dinner and when I wasn't reading I was thinking about the characters. I love it when a book draws me in like that.
Trace was the epitome of a swoon-worthy single father. He loved Ben with all of his heart, and he did everything he could to keep him safe and happy. What's not to love? Lily was also really amazing. I adored her determination and the way that she wasn't willing to let anything beat her, no matter how ridiculous she looked in the process. I loved the fact that these two developed a real relationship before falling into bed together – that they had a foundation of friendship before jumping into sex makes me believe in their happily ever after. The humor that was weaved throughout this book was unbelievable. I found myself laughing out loud more than once, and I highlighted dozens of moments that I wanted to be able to go back and re-read for a laugh. If this book doesn't make you laugh, you should check your pulse.
*slight spoilers in this paragraph only* One of my favorite things about this book was the way Ms. Alexander dealt with Ben's Asperger's. As the aunt of a boy with high-functioning Asperger's, I always grimace when it appears in books, but Ms. Alexander absolutely nailed it. Ben's quirks and uniqueness were never bigger than his personality and his heart, and to me that's how it should be.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a really great romance story between two hilarious and likable characters, or if you enjoy a sweet, wonderful single dad romance story. I can't wait for the second story in this series!
First and foremost, I was extremely impressed with the fact that the author decided to have Trace's son be on the Autism Spectrum with his Asperger's Syndrome. The son's special needs status was handled very tastefully and was done in such a way as to teach readers that perhaps don't have special needs children the day to day hardships that special needs parents face. That really resonated with me, because I'm a special needs parent myself, and it was great to see an author tackle that situation with such grace.
Looking beyond that, I loved watching the relationship between Trace and Lily build! It was so obvious that they were meant for each other by how quickly Trace's son took to Lily! I loved how spunky Lily was and how much more relaxed Trace was around her. The only thing I really hated was Lily's deception, especially since it almost ruined Trace's ability to fight his ex-wife's schemes.
All things considered, this was an engaging and engrossing read that I would definitely recommend to others!

I also loved that it incorporates the difficulties for children and parents coping with autism.
