This has always been my favorite book of the Cold Case Squad series. Pregnant omegas finding a loving alpha are not very common in mpreg stories, and Pete is especially likable with his steel backbone and indepence, while Ozzy is endearing and lovable with his kind, mellow personality and his devotion to Pete. The book is entertaining with its moments of action, reading like a cop procedural, and the villain is credible. The narration did not go as smoothly as I would have liked. The perfomer's voice was very pleasant to hear, and the characters were recognizable, however, the actor tended to emphasize the last word of every sentence, falling into a rythm that threw me off, and it also made the physically intimate scenes between the MCs not exactly sexy to listen to. The perfomer made the investigative parts of the book sound realistic, like a cop show, but did not hit the emotional tones the love scenes needed, and it ruined the mood for the romantic setting. Overall, I enjoyed the book in parts, with the police work being exciting, but the romantic parts were a definite miss for me.

The performance by the narrator was impecable, with every emotional note ringing true during the acting. Each character was distinctive and recognizable, and the tone of the story was consistent. The plot of the story is certainly moving and, very sadly, the obstacles presented by the main characters continue to be relevant to the state of our nation. LGBTQ people continue to fight for their rights to protection at the work place, marriage equality, and against homelessness and abuse, and undocumented inmigrants continue to live in fear with no immigration reform in sight. Duane, Spencer and Tomas's lives are lived by many millions every day, but luckily, they get a happy ending in a beautifully written story about second chances and hope.

Young Micah "Mike" Cordett's privileged life explodes when he is caught naked with a schoolmate. Running away from disgrace, he blunders into a trap in a seamy part of London and endures months of abuse before escaping. But with the help of the Andrews family, he's begun to climb out of his fear. Yet, when a reminder of his happier past erupts into his life in the form of Lucas Spring, Mike's not certain he's ready to face the remnants of the charmed life he'd once enjoyed. He's certainly not ready for love.

It was such a pleasure to see Micah, "Mimi" find his own happy ending, after all the sweet, generous and kind Andrews boys found their own princes charming. Micah was a mystery in all the previous stories, but his tragic backstory is finally discovered. Lucas Spring is marvelous, practically perfect in every way, kind, patient, honest and tender, which suited Micah's haunted spirit in order to find love and healing. Cornell Collins is delightful and his performance on point.

Cornell Collins is a pleasure to hear any day of the week, his performance is always on point, and hits every emotional note with accuracy. The story is certainly delightful, Simon is sweet and melancholy with his earnest wish to be loved, and his broken heart is even more saddened by being alone at Christmas. But fate smiles at him when the dashing Christopher appears at his club under the guise of a rich man playing at cards. Both men end up in a place they never expected and with feelings they weren't looking for. It is a sweet romance, with a lot of heat for a novella, and full of happy Christmas feelings.

The narration was quite a pleasure, all the accents and different timbre made all the characters distinctive. The story was entertaining, and romantic, a la Pretty Woman, the trope of the prostitute with a heart of gold definitely shines, and Jem is a jewel. He's lovable, with his quick wit and cheerful attitude, he's pragmatic about his life as a prostitute, and rather see the bright side of life as much as he can. Alan is kind, remorseful and heartbroken with memories of war, and Jem is just the balm his body and soul need to recover. Their adventure to save a child is quite exciting, and their love is really sweet, it was quite moving to see their feelings for each other grow. I love all genres of mm, but this particular historical novel was a pleasure to listen to.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are certainly likable, Rain is witty, a little bit ridiculous, funny and snappy and his hunk of a man, Danny "Irish" is equal to his snark, but has a center of calm that compliments Rain's personality really well. There are quite a lot of funny moments during the book, and though it is a paranormal story, the scary factor is low, but the murder mystery is a very important part of the plot, as well as the romance. There's also a good, enjoyable amount of sexiness, for those of us who appreciate that. The narrator did justice to the story, always making Rain sound hilarious, keeping true to the humor of the book, and setting the physical scenes on fire. I liked it so much, I wish there was a sequel.

If you're into clean, safe, good guys, then turn around, this ain't the club for you. There's a tattoed wet dream named Zak, who walks in the Hounds of Valhalla bar and meets a raspy voiced, long haired biker named Stitch, and their hot headed romance explodes in a ride full of angst and passion. Stitch is rough and rowdy and shameless, but lives with a huge secret that comes out the day he meets Zak, and their relationship is sweaty, dirty and sexy. The book is full of sexy moments but also has unexpected tenderness and realistic reactions, and though Zak and Stitch may not be to every reader's liking, they are certainly attention catching and believable, and with a pure message: be yourself even if it cost you blood. The narrator did an amazing job, he had the perfect voice for Zak, soft, deep and plummy, and for Stitch, all raspy and mischievous, and his performance hit all the right emotional notes, especially the intimate scenes, which were narrated perfectly, as well the scenes where emotions ran high with anger. The story is exciting and the audiobook brought the characters to life and a new level of hotness.

This is a sexy story. Full of passion and grit, with a beautiful romance. Beast belongs to the Kings of Hell MC, and lives his life in darkness, after suffering horrendous burns to his once beautiful face, and wishes to find someone who will love him again. Laurent, centuries before, is an indentured servant who only wishes to be a free man, and to enjoy the secret desire he harbors for men. But his wish is fulfilled in the most treacherous way, and he takes a decision that will send him to the future and to Beast with a mission. There's so much to like about this story, Beast is such an appealing character, with such a vulnerability hidden by his muscles and growl, and a deep yearning for the angelic Laurent, who seems like the answer to his darkest prayer. Laurent is beautiful, tender hearted and naive, endearingly innocent about the new world he lives in, and isn't sure how to react to Beast, but their attraction jumps off the page and the passion is explosive. The paranormal element adds a horror movie flavor to the book, and sets the stage for the next book in the series. This is a fun read, and there are no one dimensional goody-two-shoes heroes, all the characters are flawed but extremely attractive and I loved every page. Joel Leslie is magnificent and makes Laurent come alive with his lovely French accent and his uncertainty and naivete, while perfectly hitting every emotional tone required for the scenes and making the intimate moments scorching hot. I loved his performance, he is one of the greatest actors I've ever heard.

“Careful there, Robbie.” My sweater obscured part of my sight, and my fogged-up glasses managed to take care of the rest of it, but I’d recognize that voice anywhere, even after eight long years. It was deeper now, a bit more gravelly, but it most definitely belonged to the guy I’d spent most of my early teenage years pining after. My first - and unrequited - love. “Troy?” I exclaimed, blinking my confusion as he helped pull my sweater the rest of the way off. Troy Jacobs' gorgeous lips twitched in amusement. “You remember me. Didn’t know if you would."

It is a short story of a sweet first love reunion, where former step cousins, Troy and Robbie, meet after eight years and finally are able to bring all their unrequited and unresolved feelings to fruition. Robbie has always loved Troy, and gave him his first kiss, but when Troy and his family move away, Robbie is left with a broken heart, and fantasies of what could have been. When they reunite, Robbie struggles with feelings resurfacing and giving him away to Troy, but gets the surprise of a lifetime. It has some sweet and steamy scenes, and as always, Kenneth Obi does a marvelous job of performing each character and making their personalities shine through. A fun, short treat.

You know how at the end of the audiobook, they say, we hope you enjoyed this book?Well, I enjoyed the hell out this book! It was so adorable from the knitting curmudgeon with a heart of good and a rough attitude, to the sweet, not-so-innocent city boy who steals said grumpy grump's heart with his smiles. So humorous, the story has a streak of pure, almost virginal hope for love, and Craw takes his sweet time carefully courting the curious tender creature that has him all tangled up inside. The performer had the sexiest, grittiest voice, just perfect for Craw and his grouchness, and each character was recognizable. Very much fun!
