Publisher's Summary

He needs a wife for three weeks....

Owen Phipps is out for revenge. His mission? To expose the man who stole his sister's money and dignity. All he needs is a "wife" who can play along. Too bad his last best hope is an actress who tries to mace him with perfume when he offers her the role of a lifetime.

Lindy Knight is a real sap. She loves too hard, feels too deep, and often finds herself saying yes when she should be saying "Let me think about it." She can't believe her good fortune when Owen offers her more than enough money to hold off foreclosure until she can find a job. Three weeks at a resort, money she desperately needs, and she gets to help bring a criminal to justice? Score. It seems easy enough until a couples bonding game turns intimate, and they realize how dangerous their mutual attraction could be.

Can they keep their hands to themselves long enough to find the evidence Owen needs? Or are the close quarters more temptation than they can handle?

Good Story. Terrible narration of the hero' voice.

This was a fun story, but the narration of the hero was horrible!

The story line and plot were fun. The heroine, LIndy was just awesome, loved her. She was funny, smart, witty and a strong character. The hero Owen, was very sexy and likable. The chemistry between the two was great. There is a couple of great sex scenes.

There is lots of dialogue throughout the book. A very enjoyable read for sure. It wasn't a really long book so it wasn't full of filler nonsense. I enjoyed the couples retreat lessons. They were fun.

As for the narration. Well, the hero sounds like a high pitched old crone woman with a scottish accent. Absolutely horrendous. At 8% I stopped listening and just read the story.

The rest of her characters sounded fine. How can you think making the hero sound like this will make for a good listen? How anybody gave this narration more than 1 star is amazing to me. You ruin a book when the Hero or Heroine sound so bad.

Yeah I will be steering clear of Carly Robbins for sure! Sorry but I can't take a chance on wasting my money on an audible book if this is how she does her male voices.

Credit or sale worthy? NO! I recommend this book as a fun read and do not recommend the narration.

Wife for Hire

I read some mixed reviews on this book and wasn't quite sure about it. Overall I am pleased that I listened to it on audible. I disagree with the reviewer that said the "investigation" was just touched on and not integral. I thought the author wove the "relationship" and the investigation quite well. The issue I had with the book is the narrator, which other reviewers have mentioned in their reviews. Her Irish accent is absolutely horrendous! I don't know how they choose narrators in audible ... if it's the author or somebody at audible choosing them. More care should be taken in the choosing because if an accent is required, they should ensure the narrator can actually do a decent accent. I have enjoyed Carly Robins in other books, but she shouldn't do accents! This book would have benefited from 2 narrators, and the male one should actually be Irish or can do a decent Irish accent.

Good story overall...lacked a bit of sexiness...

I liked this story. The characters and plot was good. I just wished there would have been a bit more fire between the main characters overall.

everything wrong and yet it's okay

This story had so many things that were wrong. At times it felt like gaps were missing so I had to rewind. And the narration, at least of the accents, was harsh. Yet, I liked it. The characters are likeable and get you to the end.

Such a cute story

I really thought this was such a cute and funny story. The only thing I thought was the ending was a bit rushed (sorry cannot give a spoiler).
