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.

AMAZING!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Ryker to be better than the print version?

I absolutely love reading books, but having it read to me by a nice male voice, is wonderful...and I can still get things done around my house and with my kids and not have to stop reading.

What other book might you compare Ryker to and why?

I don't think there is a comparison to this book. It's an incredible romance that captured you and keeps you to the laSt word.

What about Chris Abell’s performance did you like?

Chris Abell did an amazing job. He has a voice that is very easy to listen to.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Bikers in a past life find love with each other

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend anything written by Rachel Ayala. I have read many of her books, and they never disappoint.

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!

Great Fast Paced Listen!

I listened to the bad boys for hire books a little out of order, listening to #3 before this one but it didn't really matter. Although this story is much shorter than Nick and Carols story it's still a great book. This was nice in the sense that the story kept moving along. From the moment Ryker and Terri meet there is chemistry between them and the story takes off. There isn't any down time or parts of the book where I thought this doesn't really need to be part of the story. The interesting thing is when you learn about Terri and Ryker's backgrounds and how they really met. There's drama, love, conflict and joy but it's not over the top at all and even though it's a shorter book, it has everything you need for a great love story that also includes some action. I'd definitely recommend this book. Another good thing about this book is that I was able to listen to it in one day so I wasn't left having to wait until the next day to finish the story. Bad Boys for Hire is a great series.

I was provided a free copy of this book at my request from the Author for my honest and unbiased review.

Bad Boys is great listening!

Ryker is a former marine out of work. He has family in the area, but there is some bad blood going on between him and his family. Terri owns a flower shop and hires Ryker for an afternoon to help in the shop. Sparks fly, but it seems to be nothing more than a one-night stand until the two run into each other at a motorcycle club and Ryker realizes that Terri is the object of his brothers plans of revenge. You will want to listen to this to hear if the bad blood between their families will keep Terri and Ryker apart?

This was my first Bad Boys book and I didn't quite know what to expect, but am glad I gave it a try. The plot kept moving and the end was full of action and surprise. Much more to the story than simply a sexy read.
The narrator did a great job in all aspects, really allowing the story to come through without detracting from it. I highly recommend both narrator and author!

YES for Ryker

My first book from Ms. Ayala and I am glad I picked this book.
Loved how she weaves the story and captured my attention from the beginning. Touching on sensitive subjects, like the fate of many veterans after returning stateside, the attitude of so many people when dealing to panhandlers, the snob atmosphere of county clubs frequented by the wealthy.
Terri is one of the 'snobs', but gets quite a surprise after meeting Ryker and getting to know him. Finding out their respective stories is entertaining and unexpected. Well done.
I am so getting the next story :D

My first listen from Mr. Abell and his voice is very good, I enjoyed his various voices, male and female, the emotions are well displayed. Loved the voice he gave Ryker. YUM

Romeo and Juliet biker story

I liked this sexy story of two hearts who find out their parents were from rival motorcycle clubs and have to figure out a way to stop an all out war. The narrstor had a nice voice and great execution. I received a complimentary audio and I am voluntarily reviewing.
