This was a different kind of book but more than anything what really made it interesting was the narrator Tor Thom which voice is so varonil that makes you believe anything and everything he narrates 😍👏

Get Your Own Luck!!

Rachelle penned a fascinating story as I have been to Ireland and recognized places. Tor Thom and Charley Ongel were the perfect narrators to bring it to life for me. I loved how they brought the cat named Rats into it with the sounds.
Marisa Monroe came for a taste of Ireland on a reality show. She got more than she bargained for in Liam Donovan. She decided she would make her own luck. Get Lucky with this one!

Bad Boys in Ireland

Marissa hires a Bad Boy to help her win the reality show set in Ireland - the Unluckiest Woman. If she can change her luck, she'll win the contest and get married. She's told that the name of her Bad Boy is Liam but no picture or description was given. When she arrives in Ireland, another Liam overhears about the contest and hopes to get an acting job. Little does he know that he'll end up trying to protect Marissa against the producers of the show when they try to put her in danger for ratings. I really enjoyed the descriptions of the places in Ireland, it almost made me feel like I was there. Rachelle Ayala has written another great book with flawed people who rise above their problems. I loved Tor Thom's Irish accent and the way he and Charley Ongel fit together with the narration.

Love is Worth the Pain

Bad Boys for Hire: Liam is an amazingly fantastic story of learning to refocus and reclaim your life in the face of continued opposition and blatant sabotage. This story wound its words and hope around my heart, and it wouldn’t allow me to give up hope no matter how entangled and twisted things became. When I wanted to rest to save my heart from breaking, it pushed me forward into the coming storm, and helped me to brave it. Just the fact that the country of Ireland has endured so much tragedy and ugliness and still survives and thrives is enough hope that a new day is on the horizon no matter how long our night seems to last.

This is another fabulous hit by Rachelle Ayala. She knows how to aim for the heart and hit it every time. She isn't afraid to attack the hard issues and work through them until you can see light at the other side. Her heart and bravery is a beacon of light in a world slowly being swallowed by darkness.

The narration is yet another extraordinary performance by Tor Thom and Charley Ongel. This team does such a spectacular job of bringing these special characters to life for every one to enjoy and savor. I knew this would be another fantastic experience, and these two proved me right once again. They are truly the best narration duo!

When in need, call BadBoys for Hire!

Bad Boys for Hire, can they help out Marissa? She is off to Ireland to film a reality TV show, figuring this is her chance at changing her luck and having a vacation. She reaches out for help to ensure her win by hiring a bad boy. Liam, an aspiring actor hears the money you can make on a reality TV show and wiggles his way into a job, hoping to be noticed for his acting ability. Little does he know what he has gotten himself into! Mia, the show's manager, is the previous loser of the show and is willing to do just about anything to make sure Marissa loses, even if it inhibits Marissa's safety. Rachelle Ayala again has written a warm love story, with real life problems to be solved as well as little suspense to keep us all engaged in the outcome! Marissa is definitely one that need some confidence boosting, her self esteem is low, and Liam is just the man to see her for who she is, and show Marissa her own self worth. These two together show how life's unexpected turns may bring you to your lucky pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. With some Irish folklore mixed into this fun listen, you are sure to fall for this bad boy!

Of course the setting being in Ireland, a good Irish brogue is needed for Liam, and Tor Thom brings it! His baritone voice, with the Irish lilt is warm and inviting, so it's easy to fall for Liam. Charley Ongel gives voice to Mia with the perfect evil tone, you can feel her need to wreak havoc on Marissa. She gives Marissa just enough uncertainty in the beginning and really shows her growth in confidence as the story progresses. Love this team, they are wonderful!

What a fantastic bad boy of an audio

Love this story I have listened to Rachelle audios. They are great. . Love the narrators team of Tor Thom and Charley Ongel. I will always hear a audio done by the 2 . The author Rachelle has written another art full storyline that will make you laugh and have hope of another day of life . Your heart actually goes out to the heroine... your routing for her . And the great love story

Hero is Liam Heroine is Marisa .
Marisa life doesn’t always turn out the way she expects it. It’s one wrong turn after another . She got fired at work. And her mind is already ahead to her next project. She wants to be a consultant on a realialy show. Marisa is hopeful this is where life wants her to go . Marisa rushes to Ireland for the opening

Liam is an actor who himself is looking for an opening. He hears Marisa hiring another Liam to play her boyfriend. He grabs the chance and pretends he’s the Liam. He figures when they go on the reality show it will boost his acting chance .
But once they meet Liam looses all his senses.
Grab it and see does the reality show turn out out for real

Tor And Charley nailed the audio. They brought the story to life

Romance, Rachelle Ayala style.

I loved Liam and Marissa at first read. At first listen, I got a front row seat to the craziness that captured my heart. Romance, Ayala style is full of wacky moments but never light on heartwarming entertainment.

Who doesn't love an Irishman?

Marissa is a contestant on a reality TV show and has been sent to Ireland. She hires 'Bad Boys for Hire' to provide her with an escort in Ireland...but she has no photo...queue the dramatic music! Another Liam is looking for his big break into acting and when he overhears about the contest, decides to meet Marissa. Meanwhile, Mia, assistant to Marissa and also the losing contestant in the early round, is trying to sabotage Marissa's efforts. Can you see where this is going? Lots of drama and some LOL moments...Marissa is a clutz...and oh, so worth the listen. This enter series was fantastic! The narrators did a phenomenal job with the accents.
I voluntarily accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Great Read

Bad Boys for Hire: Liam was another great read by Rachelle Ayala. Marisa is going to Ireland for a reality show. She wants to secure her win, so she decides to hire a bad boy. Liam is looking to make it big when he meets Marisa at the airport. I really enjoyed Liam and Marisa's story and can't wait to read more by Rachelle Ayala.

Quirky contemporary romance set in Ireland

Rachelle Ayala's Bad Boys for Hire series is a bit of a misnomer. In fact the boys are more sweet than bad, but no less masculine.

To be honest, Liam's story is not my favourite book in the series though it is thoroughly enjoyable. Some of the previous stories had a surprising depth that is missing in this book. However, this story is lighter and quite adventurous.

Marisa Monroe is a contestant for the America's Unluckiest reality show and she certainly manages to find herself plenty of trouble. To be fair, she doesn't actually invite trouble so much as finds herself set up for the sake of show ratings. Luckily Liam counterbalanced her bad luck with Ireland's finest good luck. He has her back as they wander through the Irish countryside towards their HEA.

This is a fun story. Despite being a little less complex than previous books in the series, it still reflects Rachelle Ayala's penchant for stories that highlight the value of self-reflection and growth.

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