Publisher's Summary

Motorcycle racer Teo Alexiou is challenged by his grandmother to come to her birthday party with a real girlfriend. He has plenty of party girls, and he fears getting roped into marriage so he hires an actress to play the part. 

The last thing Amy Suzuki wants is to be a kept woman, but her student loans are piling up and acting gigs are nonexistent. She agrees to Teo’s proposal for one summer, limited to public displays of affection. 

When Teo and Amy find themselves caught in love’s grip, their new desires war with their fears. Teo wants to renegotiate, but Amy insists she’s only with him because she is paid. She would never lose her heart to a man who uses money to buy affection. 

Their game playing explodes when Teo is injured on the track. Teo needs Amy, but how can she be sure of her true feelings when she’s an actress who can portray any emotion on command? Was her role in the reality show skillful acting or true love?

Reality Show or Reality?

Teo needs a fake girlfriend to appease his grandmother’s wish that he find someone steady by her birthday party. Amy is a new actress looking for an acting job and auditions for a reality show, not realizing it is just a set up by Teo’s friend to find him a fake girlfriend. This a fun, enjoyable story with an interesting storyline. My heart went out to Teo and I really liked his character. Amy took a little longer to warm up to however when I started to understand her insecurities I could also sympathize with her and wanted her to find the love she deserved. I found myself rooting for both of them. Charley Ongel did a very nice job narrating. This book was given to me for free and I provided this unbiased review.

Fake Fiance - Real Love?

I really enjoyed this story which was a departure from the books that I've read and listened to by Rachelle Ayala. It just shows what a versatile author Rachelle is. This is about Teo, a motorcycle racer, and Amy, an aspiring actress. Teo's grandmother wants him to have a real, steady girlfriend by her birthday. Teo's friend, Ronaldo, has connections with the tv world and comes up with the idea of a reality show that will have Teo get a girlfriend. Amy tries out and they both fight against their feelings and don't believe the other really loves them. After some misunderstandings and a bad motorcycle crash that leaves Teo with amnesia, they have to try to trust each other. Charley Ongel does a wonderful job of narrating.

Roaring Hot story!

Passion, chemistry, family, uncertainty, love and that devious Ronaldo Silver all are front and center in this release by Rachelle Ayala. With a desire to please his grandmother, Teo decides to find himself a fake girlfriend. With the help of his friend Ronaldo, they set up a realty show and find an actress to play his girlfriend. Amy is an aspiring actress and sees this opportunity as the big break for her career. Little do these two know what they are in for. I found it easy to fall for Teo, his character is wounded and seems to be pretty up front with who he is. Amy it took me a little while longer to warm up to, but as she warmed up, so did I. I enjoyed the supporting characters, happy to see Ronaldo from the Intercepted by Love series, always causing trouble. I also enjoyed Teo's grandmother and sister. They brought some unexpected personalities in that were fun. Ayala has once again brought a complex story and wove a beautiful love story around it. This book was a pleasure to listen to.

This is the first time I have heard Charley Ongel narrate a book by herself. Usually in a team with Tor Thom, this book is able to showcase her talents with both male and female voices. She gave a beautiful performance.

White Hot Passion Mixed with a Breathtaking Plot

Roaring Hot is one of the first books I read by this author, and I was completely blown away then and even moreso now. The storyline is intensely compelling, and the characters will steal your heart when you least expect it. Also, there are enough twists and turns to make any romance reader smile with delight. Nothing compares to a well-written and heart melting story, and this is definitely one that you need to experience and savor from beginning to end.

Charley Ongel was fantastic in her narration of this wonderful book. She really did justice to each of the incredible characters, and showed her passion for the book along the way. I was in a heavenly bliss listening to one of my favorite books come to life in my mind and heart. Every word and each twist wrenched my heart and made me feel so much more then I wanted to, and that is the mark of an exceptional author!
