Publisher's Summary

Florist Terri Martin lives a calm and peaceful life. Maybe too calm and too peaceful because she can't remember the last time she was in a relationship.

Terri calls Bad Boys for Hire to book herself a date for her thirtieth birthday party, but before she can hire one, she meets Ryker Slade, a biker hiding from his motorcycle club.

Old vendettas resurface and soon, Terri has more than she can handle when she learns that her and Ryker's love is as doomed as Romeo and Juliet's.

Ryker thinks he has a way out, but can Terri escape her fate, or will she find her lover dead before she wakes?

Bad Boys for Hire are fun and exciting stories where love is unexpected, but always delicious. They can be listened to standalone, but for greater enjoyment, please be sure to check out the other books in the series.

Bad Boys for Hire Series was awarded the 2016 Beck Valley Books Reviewers Choice Award.

    "Great story"

    All poor Terri wants is a date for her birthday.by chance she meets up with Ryker. It made me grin from the start. I can always tell when a book will grab me within the first few pages. Boy this did, I sat listening this book for whole story in one sitting. Utterly enjoyable. Great story great characters. Utterly fantastic. Highly recommended. You won't forget this modern Romeo and Juliet. But with a different take. Superbly written.

    "Biker Club Romeo and Juliet version with a twist"

    Take an ex-biker turned marine turned medically discharged homeless and jobless civilian. Add one ex-biker princess turned self-employed florist. Include a seriously large helping of chemistry and sizzling action in bed. Then add a biker club versus biker club feud. And an unusual hire a bad boy service to thrown the reader for a loop. Oh! And don't forget the random twists in the plot that include surprising reveals. This book may be a modern interpretation of Romeo and Juliet but don't be fooled. There is so much more going on than what meets the eye!! It is definitely an entertaining, and hot, read!!

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

    "I'm a sucker to the lure of the bad boys ;)"

    Exciting ,funny,sexy .yes please bring on book 2!The title suggests there are more books to come in this series, and while there are lots of hooks /additional characters who could go on to lead their own stories, this particular story is nicely wrapped up with no gaping loose ends.
    A great listen, and I will look out for future books by R.Ayala.C.Abells' performance is excellent. Characters have distinctive voices (i.e differentiable), the pacing and speed of the story was well done. Production was excellent .this book was a great find :)I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.As always this is my honest opinion .

    "I asked for more and I got it!"

    I asked for more and I got it!

    This is the 1st in the Bad Boys for Hire Series. I previously listened/reviewed book #2 Ken.

    ♥ Story ♥
    Terri “Terr” Martin is turning 30 and needs a date! She calls the Bad Boys for Hire agency to hire a biker to accompany her to the party her mother is throwing for her. She wants to make a ripple in the pond, not show up with a respectable date. Terry runs her own florist shop to her mother’s dismay who is always trying to set her up with someone that will raise the social status of the family.

    Ryker is a marine, who just so happens to be a biker, sidelined by a war injury trying to find a job, and it’s not going well. After an awkward if not embarrassing standoff, Ryker ends up working for Terri. Their chemistry is on fire, but when the meddling mother comes to visit/coerce her into a date, Ryker recognizes a woman from his past and all the pieces fall into place.

    Secrets start pouring out, and they are juicy! Seems they have a lot more in common than once thought, and their pasts coming roaring back with a vengeance. The story ends so far from where you think when you first start, but trust me, It’s so worth it!

    ♥ Author ♥
    This is my second read by Rachelle Ayala and I am so not disappointed! I can’t wait for the 3rd book to make it to audio!

    ♥ Narrator(s) ♥
    Chris Abell also narrates this title. My opinion of who his voice reminds me of still stands, but I was so enthralled with the story and what was going to happen that I cannot say much more about his performance which should say everything about the job he did!

    "Awesome book!"

    I loved this book! It is amazingly well written. The characters and the storyline were well developed and complex! There are so many twists the story keeps you engaged from the first page to the last! This is my first book by this author and it will not be my last!
    Narration is very much personal preference but I think this was very well done, very professional, I enjoyed every minute!

    "I Want A Bad Boy For Hire!!!"

    This Bad Boy For Hire audiobook was a pleasure to listen to with an awesome narrator. I didn't read the story prior to listening, but I think if I had, it would have added to the story. I never realized listening to someone tell me a story could be so exciting, especially one like this. it's incredibly hour and I recommend having a listen.

    "Loved it!"

    This was a sexy and fun modern day Romeo and Juliet with bikers! The narrator did an amazing job with acting out the individual voices, and the plot kept me hanging all the way to the end! Looking forward to more of this series coming to audio. It will be an auto-buy for me!

    "Unexpected Second Chance"

    I receive this audible book for free in exchange for an honest review. Rachelle Ayala is becoming one of my new favorite authors. I read number 2 in this series first, but came back for Ryker and absolutely loved his story and his heart and loyalty to the woman he loves. Terri and Ryker's story is unexpected and unpredictable, and the additional characters development of their parents and the history they all share was intriguing. This book is easy to listen to and get swept away with. I can't wait doe Bad Boy #3!

    "A New Romeo and Juliet Twist"

    A modern day Romeo and Juliet, this book is fast paced and fun. Terri, a florist hooks up with Ryker, a man she hires to help for a day in her store. He seems familiar, but little does she know, her past will come back full force! This dynamic duo has chemistry from the minute they meet. The rivalry of their families with the backing of their respective motorcycle clubs is very intimidating through the story, but Rachelle Ayala gives this old Shakespearean classic a new twist, so you are kept guessing throughout the story. I loved the performance of Ken, from Bad Boys for Hire and his quick but oh so important role. He gave me a chuckle with his act and was impressed that he put himself in harm's way for the job. There is a glimpse of Terri's friends who are also in book 2, giving a little background on the upcoming events, but it is this series can definitely be read as a standalone for each book.

    Chris Abell is amazing with his narration. He is able to capture the heat and passion in one scene and turn to the next and make you feel the fear of what is coming up! He does an incredible performance.

    "Great story!!"

    This was very well written. There's a lot of steamy love scenes, which I enjoyed. I felt the story was good, all though at times seemed a little whining but soon made sense as the story went on. I really enjoyed the twist with her friends; I definitely found it hard to put down.

    "Really good story"
    Any additional comments?

    This story pulled me in from the start and never let go. This was just an entertaining, engaging and enjoyable story from start to finish. Being a shorter story it moves at a fast pace with plenty of unexpected twists keeping the story constantly moving and interesting. There are several "didn't see that coming" moments which is really refreshing especially in a shorter story.

    Mystery, a bit of suspense, intrigue, humor, some steamy romance and a HEA. While there is some angst, drama and suspense it's also a fun book.

    Instant attraction doesn't work well in many stories but it works between Ryker and Terri in this story. Not the soul mate part so soon, but the instant attraction. It makes sense farther into the story. You can't help but make the comparison to a Biker Romeo and Juliet.

    The prior connection/history between Ryker and Terri…didn't see that coming.
    Rykers backstory …wow. Terri's parents was another unexpected twist. Some of the humor is laugh out loud funny, the panhandler whisperer line had me laughing and receiving some strange looks.

    It touches on the subject snap judgement's. The judgments we have all made at some point in our lives without all the facts and regretted it. As well as the obstacles veterans face when getting out of the service.

    Chris Abell did a great job with the narration. Nice voice. Easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Really good character voices. Perfect voice for Ryker. Deep and rough around the edges. Just how you want your bad boy biker to sound. Sorry you just can't be the bad boy alpha biker with a soft voice. Great tone and delivery of the humor. He made the characters and story come to life. Very enjoyable.
