Greg may be an omega, but he doesn't let that define him. Aside from his almost compulsive need to clean, the most important thing to him is his job as the long-time bartender at The Big O. Greg is far from a delicate omega. In fact, he’s the same size as his best friend - an alpha who he always falls back into bed with when they’re between relationships.

Narration is done by Drew Bacca, who is phenomenal at bring life to the characters and helping the listener get lost in the story. Great job.

Hunted Alpha is a Gay Transgender Romance by Troy Hunter and Noah Harris. It is the second book in The Transgender Mates series. The narration is do by Bryce Chadwell. Both the authors and narrator did great jobs at bringing these great characters to life and tell their intriguing story.

I have not seen many transgender pregnancy books, this is I believe only the second one I have personally read and I am glad I chose to. The story was a fantastic mix of drama, humor, and romance. It dealt with some discrimination and identity issues found in the transgender community but with a shifter twist to the story. Thw characters were likeable and I loved how they interacted together. I highly recommend this book.

The narrator does a good job bringing out the personalities of the characters and adding an extra layer of enjoyment to thie story. Well done.

Darkest Desires by Noah Harris is the first installment of the City of Sinners series. It is an erotic m/m romance filled with paranormal elements, 1970s New York culture, dark themes, and scenes so steamy, your kindle may need to be replaced. The characters are well written and pull you into the story. I can't wait to see what the rest of this series holds for us.


Narration of the story is done by Richard L Walton. I felt the voice fit the story well and helped me get lost in the journey the author was taking me on. The characters came to life. Great job!

This book is an amazing start to an intriguing and attention keeping new series. The story is well told and fascinating, filled with characters that are strong, loyal and caring to their true friends, and survivors. I was pulled into the story with Austin, Tan and Mack. These men had to endure so much, betrayals from people they trusted, being used by others, losing people... their story is filled with drama, adventure and slow-burn romance built from friendship and trust. I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for them.

Kenneth Obi is the narrator for this book a d does a fantastic job bringing the story to life and providing individual voices to the characters to make their personalities shine. Loved this!

Deliver Me by Aiden Bstes is an Mpreg Romance and the first book in The Silver Oak Medical Center series. this is an enemies to lovers book.

I found certain parts of this story very emotional. I also found myself wanting to smack certain characters... but I always enjoyed the story... it was entertaining and kept me listening. Carter and Finn didn't have a sweet mushy love and that's okay.. I still rooted forvtgem to figure it out and wanted to read more about the people around them. Overall I thought the story was great.

The narrator, Corey H Bennson, did a great job bringing these characters to life. The narrating helped further my enjoyment of the story. Great job!

Nathan and Rafael are adorable and sweet together. They are so meant to be but have to deal with a major issue before they can accept that. They didn't communicate the real issue the first time around but luckily They get this second chance. The story is fantastic. I got the feels reading it and yup, even had some tears. I cant wait to read more in this series.
