3.5 Stars book
4 Stars narration

I think the best part of this book might have been the narration. I could barely follow the storyline in this book due to the narrators voice being so damn sexy. I have zero clue where his accent is based from, but I could happily listen to him talk all day. Idk where she finds them, but Lucy always has the best narrator voices for her audiobooks.

I'm probably going to have to listen to this one again to retain the actual story and plot were given in this book. But overall I'm pretty sure it was a good book, it was just really short...

Man, Patricia Logan is such a great writer. I really feel like I don’t have the words to describe how well written this book was. Just like her Death and Destruction series, this book gives us just about every single thing you want and look for in a great story. Romance, Action, Suspense, Mystery, Intrigue. These characters and their personalities are fascinating and I loved every moment of this book. It completely pulls you in and grips your full attention the entire time. I listened to this one in audio, and I literally wanted to cry every time I had to pause this book for other “actual life issues” LOL. I did not want to stop this book at any point in time.

Patricia Logan’s storytelling, Plus Michael Pauley’s narrating skills equal Absolute Perfection!!

Detective Pope Dades’ is an openly “outed” gay police officer in Hollywood, CA. He works in a division where basically no cop has his back including his Ex-partner who he was very obviously wrong to put his trust in. Pope’s ex-partner is a really horrible person, every time we meet him in this book I hate him just a little bit more. Felix Jbarra works for Homeland Security and is trying to take down a child trafficking ring when he comes into contact with Detective Dades. They have a Super HOT meeting before they even realize who they are. And it’s basically instant lust and love between the two men taking over from there. But there is so much more to the full storyline, so many twists and turns and action and suspense you don’t even focus on the Instant love factoring into the equation. This book just completely sucks you into the plot of what is happening. OMG, and if you have read any of Patricia’s previous books you will get to see some awesome character appearances in this one. I was thrilled when Detective Cassidy Ryan (Silver series) shows up to help Felix and Pope. And then Jarrett, Thayne, Lincoln and McBride, (Death & Destruction series) all show up, I loved getting glimpses of these guys and I really hope they show up in future books of this series. I just want more of them all. I don’t even want to divulge any major details or spill any spoilers so let me just end this review saying… BUY THIS BOOK, and/or AUDIOBOOK. You will not be disappointed at all. Definitely worth any price you have to pay for it.

Well, this book had all kinds of twists to it I did not see coming…

I have to say that book two is still my favorite and might just stay that way, but I really did like this addition to the series too. This whole series has been fantastic so far, made even better by the Audio narration we get from Colin Darcy. He just puts so much obvious effort into giving us a performance and not just a basic narration for each of these books its really astounding. We get such a wide range of voices from him each and every time I am seriously impressed by each audiobook I’ve heard from him so far.

Sana is one of the “Alpha Dragon warriors” who finally meets his Heartsong in Peter (Sam’s brother we meet in book 2) Sana does everything he can to keep from getting close to Peter. He tries to keep from forming a bond and pushes his mate away for a lot of this book. My heart really hurt right along with Peter, feeling like he wasn’t good enough for Sana to be with. I just didn’t understand where Sana was coming from and it made me kind of dislike him. I am #TeamPeter all the way. Then getting into the twists in this book, the “villain”… I mean we all kind of saw that coming, finding out who he is. But the things he did to these two, Peter and Sana and the other omega that they find who’s been held hostage are really horrible things. I don’t understand how he could do those things and think the way he does when he himself was a dragon, and to have duped them all this whole time, for dozens of years just sounds crazy to me. I’m glad that in the end Sana realized that he could be open and honest with his friends about who he really is inside without any ramifications and blowback on him, Peter and their baby. This book had a ton of action packed into it, we are really getting to the heart of the overall storyline with this one and learning a lot more about the Hunters Guild. This book was great. I really enjoy everything about this series.

Jason Hawkins is about to throw the biggest Hail Mary pass of his career. If he can't turn NFL recruiters' heads this year, he'll lose his shot at the one thing he's ever been good at. But every quarterback needs a man he can count on down the field. For Jason, that man just might be the Tigers' new receiver, Derek Griffin. Four years ago, Derek nearly lost everything after being outed by his teammates. Now he finally has a chance to get it all back as a walk-on for Eastshore College.... if he can resist his immediate attraction to the gorgeous and very straight star quarterback.

This book is FANTASTIC.

• Football Players
• Coming out, discovering new feelings
• Best friends to Lovers
• Did I mention Football players…

I really liked everything about this book. Even though I’m not really a fan of football in real life. You can really admire the amount of work that went into this book, because you will learn about all things football. Including what two college age guys have to go through during practices and being on the field and especially after they make a connection and come out to family and friends.
I think this is one of my more favorite MM Sports books I’ve read over the past few years. I read this one a few years back and once I saw it was being put into Audio I had to snag myself a copy. The author did a great job picking the narrator Christopher Boucher. He really did an amazing job with these two characters, I was impressed by his narrating skills on this one. All I could see in my head while listening to this one is two “All American Home Grown Down to Earth Real Life Football Players” <<If that’s even a thing, and makes any sense to anyone else but me>> I really just think he did great capturing their personalities and character emotions at all the right times in the voices he gave them.

Jason “Hawk” is the Quarterback at Eastshore. His only focus is football and not much else. When Derek Griffin shows up to the team they form an instant friendship, Jason wants to help Derek get better at football and overcome his fears on the field. Derek is recovering from an incident from being “outed” by his previous team several years before. Learning about what happened to him during that experience will definitely tug at your heart. Sometimes it’s really hard reading/hearing about people getting hurt purposely, for no other reason than the others being hateful, horrible humans. Jason and Derek become fast and strong friends and once Jason realizes he can’t really live without being close to Derek, things between them get even more interesting. Jason and Derek together are H.O.T. Two football players together can make some seriously steamy, sexy scenes in a book and this author definitely has a way with words. I really do have to say that I appreciate how the author kept Jason as a “bisexual” man and didn’t push for the “I’m only gay for you” scenario that happens quite a bit books. We get to see Jason really thinking about his true feelings and how he still feels about other people in general as well as his stronger feelings for Derek. I was a little nervous when it came to Jason’s dad learning about the two of them towards the end, but was really glad that there wasn’t an extra issue/drama thrown in there. I’m not sure I could have handled that after my nerves were already frayed with what happens with Jason. Overall a really enjoyable experience reading as well as listening to this book. I don’t think anyone will be disappointed with picking this one up no matter what version they go for.

Toby is intrigued, so when he sees an ad for a discreet company called Rent-a-Dom while scrolling his social media page, he impulsively sends a request for a Daddy Dom to help him stay on track.

Updated/Edited E-Book Review to include Audio review 10/11/18

Audio – Nick J Russo did great with this book. It was nice to see him give us such perfect voices to match each of the main characters Thorne and Toby, as well as the smaller character parts as well. Each voice had its own distinction and I really liked how their more playful personalities really came out and shone with the narration we got from Nick. I liked this audiobook a lot. I hope he is able to narrate the rest of the books in this series.

This book is awesome. It has a ton of fun characters and action packed into it. Another great collaboration from these two authors Susi Hawke and Piper Scott. They seem to be the perfect match when it comes to writing the hot, kinky, sexy dirty books. Great start to what I am sure is to be a fantastic series. I can't wait to see what these authors have in store for us next.

Fake boyfriend/marriage, Daddy Dom/boy, m-preg, Spanking, Stalking, kidnapping, Hot and dirty Alpha/Omega sex, cum play, rock stars, friends turning on each other, and cute little dogs. The BDSM aspect in the book is all very light and more D/s than anything, no hardcore elements or pain just mainly the Dominant Alpha taking charge of his Omegas needs. This book has pretty much everything you could ask for in it. I loved it all.

Toby is a musician who is sweet, clumsy, a complete and total brat who has ADHD which does not seem to help him along in his out of control lifestyle. He really just needs a Daddy, Dom or someone to take control and give him some much needed structure and direction in life. That's where Thorne comes in. Thorne works for an escort type service that helps pair people with Doms depending on their specific needs. Thorne is instantly enamored with Toby, seeing through his ditzy, bratty behavior to the boy who just needs someone to care enough to help lead him in the right direction. What is supposed to be an 8 week contract while Toby deals with his musical career, and tour turns into more as time goes on. They can’t fight the obvious attraction and connection to each other. I really liked this story, not only do we get the dialogue and interesting communication between the two men but we actually get an in depth action filled plot as well. I was happy with the Daddy/boy trope we got especially seeing Thorne was only mid-thirty's, that he was old enough to fit the role he was put into but he also wasn't really old compared to how some daddies are written into books. I thought Toby was a really fun character and I loved seeing the two of them in their Daddy/boy roles, they fit perfectly together. Thorne being annoyed whenever Toby called him daddy was funny too, you could literally just imagine him rolling his eyes each time it happened lol. I wasn't really expecting all the extra drama in the story either with the band mates and the stalker, which was all an added interesting twist. And the pregnancy aspect didn't overshadow the entire story either, it wasn’t really at the forefront of this book. But Thorne taking charge and stepping into the real role of Daddy was nice to see and I liked how that all turned out. Oh, and Toby's "rat" dog Ruffles was an awesome add to the story, I loved his dog and the interactions everyone had with him, it was super cute.

This book is super sweet and cute. With the most loveable characters. The first part of a three book series. We get to see these men meet in unexpected circumstances when Jacksons dog training business advertisement gets mistaken for a kinkier version of "pup training". Sawyer and Cooper have already made a relationship together for the past few years but they are looking for a third. Someone who can be the stronger glue to help them find their way. Since they are both pups, what they really want is a master to care for them both together, equally. They end up finding that third in Jackson. Sawyer and Cooper are completely adorable, you can literally not help but fall in love with them. Once they learn to trust Jackson, and realize that he is there to stay they form the best connection together and have the hottest chemistry when the three finally get to that last step in their relationship together. Cooper is the sweetest, super excitable and bright like the sun. Sawyer compliments his personality perfectly. Jackson is the strength that can keep them both in line, but will make sure they both get what they need as well. The puppy aspect of the book is written really well. We get to see Jackson learning from scratch how he feels about pup play and being a master to two pups. This book is so sweet I cannot wait for the next few books.

Audio – Kenneth is the best narrator when it comes to super sweet and playful characters. He does a fantastic job with Cooper and Sawyers voices, keeping them separate but also keeping them fun light and playful compared to Jacksons deeper and rougher personality. I also think he did great with all three characters. I loved this book and cannot wait to get my hands and ears on the next two audiobooks.

I loved this book. Another great Addition in the Team A.L.P.H.A. series by Susi Hawke and Crista Crown. This has been a great series of books so far and I’m really enjoying the collaboration these two authors have given us in these books.

I think that one of the main reasons is because it’s not the normal Alpha is in charge in all ways and the Omega just obeys every direction. This book was different and has some twists and surprises when it comes to the main characters and I think that’s what intrigued me so much about the premise and blurb of this story. Cody has been in captivity for years, but still hasn’t lost hope that he will be set free, even when all odds are against him. I think he might be one of the strongest Omega’s I’ve read about. His strength comes from within but once he’s free to be himself that strength definitely moves outwards into all parts of his personality. I just loved the dynamic between Cody and his Alpha Levi. Levi, is understanding, patient and a little submissive for an Alpha, allowing Cody to learn who he is and be himself without pushing him, since Cody never got a chance to in the years he was being held. Levi’s way of thinking and just automatically accepting Cody’s baby not even caring that he wasn’t the “bio” parent just shows another part of how amazing Levi is as well. Omg, and Levi’s little surprise was unexpected but totally hot. I really enjoy this series, we get to see all kinds of Omegas being helped and saved by some tough but super fun and really funny Alphas.

Audio – Another great narration from Colin Darcy. I really have fun and smile a lot while listening to the voices he gives his characters. He makes sure that we get to really hear every part of the personalities for each character. I don’t think he’s ever just “read” a story to us, he actually gives us a performance each and every time. And it’s been fabulous each time I’ve heard his narrations so far. I will keep buying his audiobooks as they come out in the future.

J.H. Harding was the BEST narrator for these books and I know, without a doubt I will be re-listening to these. His voices for Kage and Jamie were so dang good, I was enthralled by his narration from the start of book one through the end of book three.

In a battle of the heart, who will be the first to submit? My name is Jamie Atwood, and I am an idiot. Against all odds, I got the attention of Michael Kage, the hottest MMA fighter on the planet. To say he rocked my world would be an understatement. He transformed me completely, made me depend on him, and made me love him. And the sex?
