Taylor Maid Audiobook by Tara Lain Narrated by John Solo


Dreamspinner Presents


He’ll marry the maid to get $50 million but a secret could queer the deal.

Taylor Fitzgerald needs a last-minute bride.

On the eve of his twenty-fifth birthday, the billionaire’s son discovers that despite being gay, he must marry a woman before midnight or lose a fifty-million-dollar inheritance. So he hightails it to Las Vegas… where he meets the beautiful maid Ally May.

There’s just one rather significant problem: Ally is actually Alessandro Macias, son of a tough Brazilian hotel magnate. But if Ally keeps pretending to be a girl for a little while longer, is there a chance they might discover this marriage is tailor-made?

Okay – put on your “suspend your disbelief glasses”- because this story is absolutely wonderful if absolutely unbelievable J

Taylor finds out at the very last second that in order to inherit $50 million he needs to be married before his 25th birthday – which is tomorrow!

He scrambles to find an answer, but when that answer ends up with a broken leg, he’s left to find a miracle. The miracle shows up in the form of the hotel maid who happens to need an escape from “her” father and marriage will do the trick.

The two agree to be married right away and run back to California to perpetuate the image of a happily married het couple. Until… well… stuff happens and then other things are revealed… and feelings … and hot smexy times… and lots of really fun story telling!

I loved this version of the “shot gun marriage” trope and I highly recommend it to fans of guys in drag, evil fathers, nefarious lawyers, sweet but clueless guys with big hearts and millionaires.


John Solo is a good narrator and has a good sense of pacing and “emoting”. He does a lot to try to differentiate the characters, but he makes no real attempt to do a Spanish accent for Ally so I was a bit disappointed and then when he did one for Ally’s father it wasn’t super great. However, I enjoyed listening to this and still really love this fun, light story with a bright, happy ending.
