    Completely adorable romance novella about a rock climbing search and rescue worker who falls hard (luckily not literally) for the daredevil bad-boy of the climbing world. Generally, I don’t care for the romance genre, as many romances strike me as cliché and boring, but “Search and Rescue” found a good balance with suspenseful rock climbing action and heartfelt character development. Perhaps most important for a romance is that “oooooh sexy!” sizzle factor— and this book has it in spades (err...

Haha- I should use climbing lingo for this review but can’t find a word that fits!) Very well-read by the Audible narrator.

    I want to say something about this book, but I feel like if I give a review for it it will be so much longer than the book itself.. the story is very short and everything was moving at a lightning speed pace, but the ending was cute and it was a nice short story overall

    A very quick novella from the audible plus catalogue. A young woman who rescues climbers who come a cropper butts heads with a daredevil free climber. Not much to it but I enjoyed it.

    Audible - This was a really short read that I wish was longer. The characters were well done and the story was a really nice break from other romance formula books.

    This audible original is just what I needed! It's not too long and the story is wonderful. Lily Berlin Dodd weaves the story of Clay and Wren. Clay is a climber and everything that drives Wren crazy. She feels he is reckless, irresponsible and doesn't take other's feelings into consideration. When Clay is set to climb the mountain of all mountains, Wren is asked to come along as his first line of aid and she discovers things are not always what they seem. I loved this short.

Part takes place in Morocco with beautiful imagery. The relationship between Wren and Clay is slow burning, their banter fun and the story line a little suspenseful and a lot thrilling. Narrated by Ali Ahn, it is brought to life with great voicing and excitement.

    Not a good book for me. I’m not into climbing but even if I was, I still wouldn’t care for this book. It started off strong with good character development but when the main characters met, it all fell apart. The remainder of the book was rushed and didn’t flow. I felt like I was listening to the story from the voice of a 12 year old boy who forgot to include large chunks of the story along with the details.

    Great concept. Just not well-developed. Plus, there's a lot of useless and random side characters that take up time and don't add much to the story. This likely would have been better as a full novel, instead of a novella. It needed more time and space, and maybe just a bit more editing to help grow the story and characters into something undeniable. I can see glimpses of excellence here. They just don't last long enough to be satisfactory. Great concept. Just not well-developed.

    I don't know if they technically is a short story but it was really short and fast. I always like quick romances but sometimes when they are an interesting subject they have a little more appeal. This story was set around rich climbing so it gave it an interesting twist that I liked. I don't know if they technically is a short story but it was really short and fast.

    This was a fun, quick read! Inspired by the Nintendo Switch game "Firewatch", I was drawn to this story above other romance options due to its search and rescue rock climbing mountain theme. I did appreciate some of the settings, though I thought it unrealistic that the butch female main character would like wearing foo foo dresses at the bar scene.

Inspired by the Nintendo Switch game "Firewatch", I was drawn to this story above other romance options due to its search and rescue rock climbing mountain theme. I did appreciate some of the settings, though I thought it unrealistic that the butch female main character would like wearing foo foo dresses at the bar scene. The tension build up was good, and all of the scenes between the main characters was good. All of the other characters seemed flat and shallow and weird though, like stereotypes of the PR intern and bro sidekick kind of thing. Clay and Wren have good backgrounds and solid similarities that help them come together in a believable way, but the epilogue was really rushed and simple and I kind of wish it wasn't even there. This might have been better served if the ending would have been left to the reader's imagination, though some of it made sense for the characters' personalities. Wren has a really cool job, and I wish that we went more into her background and training as a search and rescue ranger and competent medic. The sex scene WAS sexy enough to make me want to pounce my husband as soon as I got home, so I would say that did the trick lol. Overall, I think this gets away with its shortcomings because of the fast pace and good tension, but I wish that it was a bit longer in order to address some of its faults more. I enjoyed listening to this and would recommend it as a light hearted romance, but I do not see a need to ever read it more than once.

    I was surprised by the tone and subject matter of this story. It was so much more than I was expecting from the winner of a contest called SoundsHot Steamy Story. This is no mere sexy romp. I am truly impressed by the characterization and the level of writing in this debut novel. This is a writer to watch. She pulled me into Wren's world of physical tenacity and ruggedness. She was tough in a different way than the badass heroines who fight and don't back down. Wren has a quiet strength that com I was surprised by the tone and subject matter of this story. It was so much more than I was expecting from the winner of a contest called SoundsHot Steamy Story. This is no mere sexy romp. I am truly impressed by the characterization and the level of writing in this debut novel. This is a writer to watch. She pulled me into Wren's world of physical tenacity and ruggedness. She was tough in a different way than the badass heroines who fight and don't back down. Wren has a quiet strength that comes from being capable and determined. She rises to the occasion when she is needed and takes immediate, decisive action. She doesn't even think twice about her bravery, because hesitating could make her too late to save an injured climber. The climbing details are fascinating, and they give the story an authentic feel. So much so that I started to get anxious about the climb, like it was really looming ahead. The suspense built along with the sexual tension between Wren and Clay, and it gave everything more emotional weight. By the time Clay set out on his climb, I was as overwrought with nerves as Wren, My heart was in my throat as he went higher and higher. Although this is a novella, the story felt bigger. That's why the rushed ending was jarring. It didn't fit the tone of the rest of the story. Overall, though, this was very well-written and skillfully narrated. I enjoyed it very much and will be looking forward to more from this author.

    I liked the story and the characters but there was something wrong with the actual writting. They way it was written switched back and forth between tenses. It was written in third person, but read like it should have been written in first person. I kept wanting to rewrite the sentances so they flowed better. Like I said the story and concept were great which is why I finished it also because it was short, however if it had been longer I don't know that I would have stuck it out because the writ I liked the story and the characters but there was something wrong with the actual writting.

    I LOVED this audiobook. It was so short that I was a bit worried the plot wouldn't be paced well, but it was perfect. High drama, great sexual tension, and an HEA I could totally get behind. I loved that the hero seems cocky and a bit douchey but is in fact a cinnamon roll softy, and that the heroine is a badass in her own right. Would absolutely listen to again. I LOVED this audiobook.

    3.5 This story was told by an omniscient narrator that only focused on the perspective of Ren. That seemed very much a waste for I would have enjoyed the story better if hearing the perspective of Clay or the other characters. Disappointed in the story due to that.

    I liked the information about climbing and the fictional trip to Morocco. I didn't like the 3rd person present narration. There is immediacy in doing a present-tense narration, but I prefer it to be in 1st person when it happens. I liked the information about climbing and the fictional trip to Morocco.
