Kent crumpled the lame flyer in his hand and looked across the street at the Salty Stix bakery and thought to himself...this is war. Single father Pierre Duchamp has recently returned to Hollydale with plans to open Salty Stix, an authentic French bakery like the one he apprenticed at in Paris. The omega doesn’t have, need, or even want an alpha in his life - especially a provincial small town rube that doesn’t understand the concept of a little healthy competition.

I really enjoyed this story. I love the Hollydale Omegas series and this book was one of my favorites. Pierre and Kent were adorable together, and all the characters from other books made an impressive appearance in the story. Narrator did a great job giving voices to all the characters. This was a great listening experience. I can't wait for other books by this author and narrator.

Dr. Corbin Davis is a busy guy just trying to do his best as a single parent. He may be oblivious to a lot of things, but surely he would’ve noticed something as important as his 15-year-old son Grayson being bullied, right? And what the heck is nonbinary, and why hasn’t Gray shared this all-important part of himself with his own dad?

Another good story in Logan Brothers series. I enjoyed every book in this amazing series and story about Austin and Owen did not disappoint. There are some sweet moments and funny moments and heart-wrenching moments in their story. I liked appearance of other brothers and their husbands as well as interaction between everyone. Narrator did a great job, bringing so much life and personality into each character. I am looking forward to listening to other books by this author and narrator.

Plot thickens in the second installment of the Need Trilogy. Take is even more captivating and exciting than the first book Want. In this book we get more insight into what goes on in Tavi and Rex's mind and how each of them is adapting to this turnabout situation. Author did an amazing job with Tavi and Rex character development as well as showed a bit more of the entire Mirza family. Narrator was great, his voice for every character was perfect and he made this captivating story into beautiful listening experience. I can't wait for the conclusion of the Need Trilogy and other works by this author and narrator.I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys dark romance and taboo Love.

I liked this cute and sweet novella. Author did a good job with fake boyfriend relationship plot and made this story interesting and funny. I liked David and Hunter, they were both entertaining characters and their interactions and relationship development were fun and engaging. Narrator was great and did an amazing job giving voices to main and side characters. The Boyfriend Recipe was my first book by this author and I am going to check out other books by Alex Miska. I recommend this audiobook to everyone looking for a short sweet no angst story with good writing and great narration.

I was kicked out at 16 for being transgender, but it turned out to be one of the best things to ever happen to me. At 21, I have a fantastic new family made up of my brother and a handful of wonderful friends, I own my own photography business, and I’m happier than I imagined possible. There’s just one thing missing... Okay, maybe two....

I really enjoyed Flash Me, it was my favorite in the Heathen's Ink series. I was waiting for Liam's story since his first appearance in Going Commando and KM Neuhold did not disappoint. This is a great story about people choosing their own path and not afraid to be different regardless of hardships it brings to their lives. Liam was amazing and I liked how his relationship with Owen and Whyatt started and developed into so much more than a friendship. Narrator did a great job giving voices to these characters. Kenneth Obi is amazing at making different voices for all 3 characters in a way that it is easy to distinguish between who is telling the story. I am looking forward to other books by the author and narrator.
