About the Author
TA Moore is a Northern Irish writer of romantic suspense, urban fantasy, and contemporary romance novels. A childhood in a rural, seaside town fostered in her a suspicious nature, a love of mystery, and a streak of black humour a mile wide. As her grandmother always said, 'she'd laugh at a bad thing that one', mind you, that was the pot calling the kettle black. TA Moore studied History, Irish mythology, English at University, mostly because she has always loved a good story. She has worked as a journalist, a finance manager, and in the arts sectors before she finally gave in to a lifelong desire to write. 

Coffee, Doc Marten boots, and good friends are the essential things in life. Spiders, mayo, and heels are to be avoided.

Length: 6 hours and 20 minutes
His mother. His best friend. The barmaid at the local pub. Everyone is determined to find Nathan Moffatt a boyfriend. It’s the last thing Nathan wants. After spending every day making sure his clients experience nothing but romantic magic, the Granshire Hotel’s wedding organizer just wants to go home, binge-watch crime dramas, and eat pizza in his underwear.

Unfortunately, no one believes him, and he’s stuck with lectures about dying alone. Then inspiration strikes. He needs the people in his life to want him to stay single as much as he does. He needs a bad boyfriend.

There’s only one man for the job.

Flynn Delaney is used to people on the island of Ceremony thinking the worst of him. But he isn’t sure he wants the dubious honor of worst boyfriend on the entire island. On the other hand, if he plays along, he gets to hang out with the gorgeous Nathan and piss off the owners of the Granshire Hotel. It’s a win-win.

There’s only one problem—Flynn’s actually quite a good boyfriend, and now Nathan’s wondering if getting off the sofa occasionally is really the worst thing in the world.

An engaging fun romance with a twist.
Nathan Moffat is a wedding planner for the island of Ceremony’s Granshire Hotel. His life revolves around the hotel, the weddings and taking care of his mother, who is in remission from cancer. His mother doesn’t really need all his help and is determined to find Nathan a boyfriend, and a life. At 37, Nat is sick and tired of everyone in his life interfering and decides the answer to his problem is to find a bad boyfriend; one nobody in his life will approve of. If he can earn their disapproval perhaps they’ll finally leave him in peace with pizza and his tv the only company he needs. It’s a great idea, unless he begins to fall for said bad boyfriend. 

Flynn Delaney is the 43 year old owner of the island’s garage. He’s used having the islanders think the worst of him and silently laughs off all the ridiculous rumours and gossip that circulate around him. Fixing cars and relaxing at home with the odd trip to the mainland for hook-ups has suited him well enough so far and he can’t see life changing anytime soon. When Nat Moffat makes him a proposition Flynn can’t see a downside. A bit of fun at the islanders expense sounds like just the distraction he needs. Hanging out with the hunky young wedding planner certainly won’t be a hardship. What could possibly go wrong? With Flynn holding some explosive secrets close to his chest and things with Nat heating up in a way neither man expected it turns out a lot actually. Against a background of a wedding that seems destined for disaster and infighting and plotting behind Nat’s back, we can only hope these two surprisingly well suited men find their way to the HEA they deserve. 

Wanted - Bad Boyfriend was an engaging weekend listen that had me completely invested in Nat and Flynn’s HEA. I enjoyed Michael Mola’s narration though one or two of the character’s voices and accents didn’t ring entirely true for me. I’m perfectly willing to admit that this may have been my issue rather than the narrators. His performance overall was very engaging and believable. I enjoyed the story and listened to it over one relaxing day. The ending left me satisfied and with a smile on my face. 

Overall 4 stars. 
Performance 4 stars 
Story 4 stars.
