Summary

On the heels of her smash hit and New York Times best-selling Screwed series, Kendall Ryan brings you Hitched, a romantic comedy that delivers heart and heat.

Marry the girl I've had a crush on my whole life? Check. Inherit a hundred-billion-dollar company? Check. Produce an heir.... Wait, what?

I have 90 days to knock up my brand-new fake wife. There's only one problem - she hates my guts. And in the fine print of the contract is the requirement that we produce an heir.

She can't stand to be in the same room with me. She says she'll never be in my bed. But I've never backed down from a challenge, and I'm not about to start now. Mark my words - I'll have her begging for me, and it won't take 90 days.

Immature and vulgar

I have a niggling suspicion, that this book was written by a horny teenager. Such immaturity and vulgarity I have never seen before. A guy wips out his junk just to show of its' size? Are you kidding me? And this should be steamy and romantic?
Not to mention that the male narrators' voice was getting on my nerves, cause he sounded as the self absorbed narcisist, but I should note that this persona was in line with the horrible "prince charming" of the story, so maybe it was intentional.
All in all, I hated it and do not recommend.

time wasting

Could not finish the book. The narrators were absolutely worlds apart, like they were not even reading the same story. "Olivia" talks about being intimate with the same passion of me reading a banana bread recipe when i don't even like bananas. "Noah" is like that guy you find at the bus stop ranting about politics but no one actually listens. No sexual tension, nothing left for the imagination.
Besides the medieval idea for a plot, that women and men are like cattle, used only for advantageous partnerships and bread to consolidate that, it feels like the author is actually a middle aged man who is not 100% how bodies work, the descriptions of the "intense" scenes come out of nowhere, no idea where this passion or lust comes from, there's no build up, no depth, the descriptions are vulgar, not sexy. Also, who uses the word "schmuck" anymore?
Would most definitely not give this book nor author another try.

A refreshing change.

I've enjoyed this. It's an unusual concept, which I wasn't sure I'd enjoy. It has comedy and drama, with a touch of romance for good measure. I look forward to listening to part two.

Promising

Surprisingly I enjoyed the story. It’s one of those slow-burn story, so nothing major happened in terms of progress from the first chapter until the end. The story seems promising, so I’m hoping Book 2 will improve. I downloaded this book because of Teddy Hamilton (one of the best narrator out there 🥰).

Its ok

This was Ok to listen to. Its very short if you were to purchase it with tokens but as a freebie in the plus catalogue its ok. I'm generally not too over critical about books like these, after all they are just a little bit of light romantic fiction but I gotta say this one takes it a little far with the inheritance clause thing. So these 2 well educated men, who built a multi million dollar empire and raised their kids to be their successor and who apparently love there children .... is forcing their kids to marry each other...... that's a bit of a stretch for me, but ok, I figure maybe something in the story will explain why they did this.... but then the kicker ( and this isn't really a spoiler as its in the blurb) she also has to get pregnant within 90 days???? hmmm this isn't the middle ages... most woman are on birth control that could seriously affect their ability to get pregnant that fast and lets not get in to the whole issue of what if they have fertility issues....??? Are their dads saying that if they cant get pregnant within 90 days... they loose the company they love and worked so hard for. ?? but even if we want to pretend in this world everybody can magically get pregnant when they want and this couple who are being forced into a quick marriage wouldn't want to maybe take a year to , you know, get used to a married life before pregnancy hormones and a screaming baby add even more stress to their lives... lets just say none of that is and issue. There is one other very crucial thing that seems to have been forgotten. If she is having a baby... how is she supposed run the company? I'm not saying there are no woman that do this, of course there is. but the plot is that they have to have the kid within 90 days to inherit so this young couple have to get Married, have a kid and Run a multi Million Dollar company that is struggling.... ??? so she has to have this kid with a man she doesn't love and then what ....leave it to the nanny to raise while she goes back to work.... she will have to pick between raising her baby and seeing those precious first moments or go save the the struggling company she loves and leave the baby with the nanny.... but yes of course the fathers only want what was best for the kids ( rolls eyes). Sadly this is a plot issue I really struggled to get over. I'm going to listen to the next part of this story and see where it goes and if I feel the resolution is ok then i'll come edit this review to reflect it but for now this is barely 3 stars. There are parts of this that is quite entertaining... just the baby thing spoilt it for me.

Great start!

A great start to a new series which sees Olivia and Noah being placed in the difficult position of a fake relationship foe the sake of their business. I must admit that Noah came over just a bit sleepy at the start, but, as the story unfolds, different sides if his character begin to emerge. Both narrators, Teddy Hamilton and Ava Erickson, are excellent. Their expressive voices bring the story and chat life. And that cliffhanger! 💖💖💖💖💖

Great story with cliffhanger ending

Noah and Olivia have known each other most of their lives and although they have different personalities they're drawn to one another.
Trying to save their fathers business draws them into an unusual relationship.
I will definitely be listening to the next two instalments of the story but I agree with one reviewer that this could have been put into one audio book

Not sure

So the story is incomplete and, considering how short it is, I think the author could have made a longer book instead of 3 tiny ones. I also found Olivia utterly irritating but Noah was funny. Overall it’s a good story but only worthy as part of the membership, I wouldn’t buy it.
Both narrators performance were amazing.

Cliff Hanger ending forces you to buy 2 more books

What would have made Hitched better?

A full complete novel would have been nice?
I like the idea of the story line, it has potential. It moved too slow to take place in over 1 months time. It should have been written as a complete novel instead of 3 installments. Noah and Olivia were family friends who grew up together and now need to get married per a will/contract as designed by each of their fathers. The problem is Noah is a player and Olivia was hurt by her former boyfriend. Olivia was also burned by Noah when she was 19 and in college and drunk, he rejected her advances. He always wanted her but in reality he didn't want to be used, because at the time Olivia was still a virgin and was saddened by her mothers battle with cancer. Noah put a stop to it. She left hurt. Fast forward to years later Noah's Dad has passed on and the board wants to take over the struggling company. Fred, Olivia's dad is navigating Noah through contract.
Olivia is fighting this because she feels that she can turn the company around with hard work. She doesn't want to be forced into marriage, she wants the fairytale.

What do you think your next listen will be?

It probably will be a different author.

How could the performance have been better?

Ava Erickson and Teddy Hamilton did a fine job.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

My reaction is disappointment.
I assumed this was a one and done novel, it ended in a cliff hanger? I have enough interest in the couple and their story to continue reading but I really am disappointed this couldn't have been wrapped up in one book.

.

Any additional comments?

I hate this new style of greed publishing where Authors or their publishers try to rake their readers out of more money by giving us snippets of story and expect us to keep purchasing more snippets of story to tell the full story. This appears to be another situation of this style of publishing. I have already stopped reading HM Ward(The Arrangement) and Beth Kery (Because you are mine) because they do this too. I guess Kendall Ryan will be the third author I stop reading.
I will pay good money for a good FULL story but this nickel and dime publishing mentality is crap.

All cliffhanger books should be labeled as such

I despise cliffhanger endings. I resent investing hours of time, if I'm enjoying the book, and being left with no ending in sight.

Because it's not

Long enough! Excellent story! Excellent narration but just not long enough; especially with a CLIFFHANGER!

Hitched: Imperfect Love, Book 1

I was disappointed in the ending of this book. It left me hanging, am I going to rush out and purchase Book 2? No, I can just imagine I’d have to buy more than one more book to get to the ending. Yuck!

Did not hit the spot

I thought the premise of the novel was good. There are some books I listen to and afterwards I have to go back and listen to a part or buy the paper book because the book was so good. This is not one of them. I felt a lot of the dialog was in the heads of the characters. In my opinion the book is missing the quality that keeps a listener captivated. The book ends with a cliffhanger; usually cliffhangers leave me wanting more for this book it was kind of abruptly. I wish their journey was more exciting…

If you are low on credits I would safe the credit.

I hated this book so much I became a communist

Was I already angry about wealth inequality in America due to Covid 19 highlighting the fact that workers mean less to rich ppl than the stock market does? Yes. But within the first two minutes the romantic ~hero~ was like "I make a fat 6 figure income" and then bragged about getting "free upgrades" and I had to sit down and think about my damn life.

5 stars for such vomit- and epiphany-inducing levels of douchebaggery that i had to reevaluate my entire moral compass

Disappointed

Would you try another book from Kendall Ryan and/or Ava Erickson and Teddy Hamilton ?

I usually like Kendall Ryan but this book drolls on and on. Then suddenly it stops. I was prepared to say It was an ok story but the cliffhanger changed my mind. I am not will to invest the time into reading the next book

Would you be willing to try another book from Kendall Ryan? Why or why not?

Yep. I have enjoyed her books in the past

Which character – as performed by Ava Erickson and Teddy Hamilton – was your favorite?

The narrators were excellent
