Tawny Weber's Blaze novel Double Dare has Audra Walker turning her back on her old friends when a dare goes horribly wrong.
It's just another Saturday night out when Audra is challenged to take a dare or be booted out of the "kick ass chicks," a social club invented by her friends. Audra walks over to a random guy that her friends pick out and talks him up. Meanwhile, Jessie McKenzie is on a stakeout watching the very guy Audra tries to kiss.
Is the woman who just sat down next to his target is involved in drug-running as well? Jessie doesn't know but is determined to find out. Audra can't help noticing Jessie eyeing her across the way and assumes that he's interested in her. Audra ditches the nerd for Jessie, but Jessie is wary
- to the point that he asks her to go home with him. What better way to find out if she is involved?
Soon the only things involved are their hearts with each other.
Double Dare's plot drags, with Jessie continuing to wonder if Audra really is
living on the bad side of life and also wondering if there's even a remote chance that they could
be together if it turns out that Audra really is involved with this guy. Can Jessie
resist Audra Walker long enough to investigate her association with a member of a drug-running gang? Can Audra tempt Jessie deep enough that he forgets that she's off-limits?
These characters don't seem too mature, and Jessie's constant questioning of Audra's motives without any clear, substantial facts
- and Audra's hardcore sex attitude - grow boring. Maybe it's the Blaze imprint that
requires Audra's sexual side so blatant, but I did not like it.
