Publisher's Summary

Can reality television help them find love, or will ratings and drama pull them apart forever?

“Troubled” doesn’t even begin to cover Scott’s childhood, but he’s doing okay for himself. He has a place with his best friend and a career he enjoys. It’s not exactly a high-paying career, and he has to work two jobs just to make ends meet, but he can keep himself safe and that’s the important thing. The last thing he wants it to get married, never mind married to a stranger for a television show.

When his best friend decides to audition for the hit reality show Make It Work, Scott agrees to go along for moral support. No one is more shocked than he is when he’s selected as that season’s omega groom.

Danny Magee’s life has gone according to plan so far. He went to college at 14. He graduated at 16, took his company public at 20. He made his first billion at 25. Now he’s a member of the elite Hellion Club. The only thing he hasn’t achieved is starting a family. Since he hasn’t had much luck meeting people with his busy schedule, he takes a friend’s advice and signs on to Make It Work.

Neither Scott nor Danny are impressed with the other at first. As they’re forced to live with one another, their bad first impression starts to ease into friendship and then something more. Scott arouses Danny’s protective instincts, and Danny gives Scott the support he needs to move forward.

But healthy relationships and healing don’t bring in ratings. Other forces are at work to increase the tension on the happy couple. Can their love for one another overcome the need for higher ratings, or will malice win the day?

Really touches some sensitive topics

This book is such a reminder of how to behave and act in a relationship, but it also touches on child abuse/molestation and corruption. Sounds like so much fun! But it is really is.

Fun to follow the development and grow with the characters that is, because some of it is quite a strong medicine...

But this is a good book. A happy ever after ending of course and once again great to meet characters from previous books again and again.

Sadly sweet

Oh this one nearly broke my heart through the whole thing, such lack of communication. It was a sadly sweet story with a HEA. Narration is ok overall a nice addition to the series.

A great book!

I loved the concept of the reality game show. Aiden Bates did an amazing job writing it!
While Mark Ruben’s narration wasn’t bad, his voice didn’t do it for me. He gave life to this audiobook and gave each character a different voice. I just don’t love his voice in general. But it’s definitely worth a listen!

Television drama, can it turn to love?

Can a twist of fate and television drama lead to love? What about those that try to stand in the way. Give book three a go. Good addition to the series.

Realty Tv Spouses.

This was a very good spin on realty tv matings. The performance was great and flowed well with the storyline of a single billionaire and a reluctant omega pair. The protagonist was very mean and disrespectful. Way to go.

What a wild party

Wow... What did I just listen too!!! This was a wild book!!! Talk about crazy people, you have two guys, Scott and Danny, signing up for a reality TV show; each for a different reason! All the while they both are dealing with some form of child abuse and or sexual abuse, with crazy parents past and present, Then there is the up's and downs of life, angst, add in the lack of communication between these two and the continuing meddling of the TV producer and you have a crazy made for real TV movie! I completely enjoyed this audible book and the narration by Mr. Ruben added a certain enjoyment to the over all listen pleasure. If you are a fan of Mr. Bates books, please do not miss this book, you will not be disappointed! An avid listener/reader in Rock Tavern, NY.

A really great story :)

What I really, really liked in this story is that it present us with very serious issues of childhood abuse and it doesn't magically heal them.

The relationship between Scott and Danny advance slowly and organically, and it was so great to see them talk through their issues! Even when the troubles arise, is easy to understand their positions; Scott's self-doubts and Danny's fears are logical, and their reactions easy to understand. Yes, they are frustrating at times, but it's never because you can't understand their motivations. I maybe would like that the villains weren't as utterly villainous, but, oh, well! you love to hate them, so I think it's alright :P

Mark Ruben does a great job with the narration :)

Danny & Scott

Scott is wonderful and trying to live his life. He does not need the complication of a reality show making his life more difficult. Danny thinks the show is the way to get his happily ever after and is turned off by Scott's refusal. An unlikely pair thrown in a tumultuous situation. Danny is difficult to line because of his lack of effort.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4 or 5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B
