This story is so sweet and full of heart.
With plenty of steamy with some fun thrown in. So basically this book has it all.
Tom and Collin are perfect for each other.
Drew is perfect for narrating these stories. Now when I read these stories I hear his voice in my head reading it to me.

When my old high school teammate invites me to stay on his family farm, it’s the solution to my financial woes. I never imagined it might also be the answer to my loneliness. Allen Hale Jr wasn’t the first number I tried for help. It’s been years since I’ve even thought of him. But he answered on the first ring, and hours later, we’re still talking like we’re 16 again, goofing off after the big game.

So the story was okay. It was so slow to start and get going.
I liked A.J. and his dad.
AJ and Kyle were an interesting pair. It was nice hearing each other's point of view and even though the flow to this book was different it was a good read.
I would have liked more about what they were doing during the day on the farm it felt like chunks of the story were missing that I had to make up for my self.
I did love the characters though.

Tattoo artist Floyd Turner's faith in justice was destroyed when he was a rookie cop. He struggled for a couple years with drinks and his own anger. He's long past that stage - now he runs a tattoo shop downtown. But despite his fulfilling career, he's nervous about the upcoming high school reunion. Not having a date to bring there reveals his insecurity: he aches for something more. And then, when he thinks things can't get any more stressful, his former patrol partner walks in.

O.k we now have book #4 of the Riley Brothers Series.
Tattoo artist, Floyd, and fitness instructor Grayson both need dates for their high school reunion.
They thought they would make it simple and decide to be fake dates. What could go wrong? They thought it would be simpler to pretend to be each other dates, but what happens when real feelings start to come in to play?
The audio for this book is just as amazing. Michael Pauley knows how to real us in with his voice. The way he brings the characters to life is awesome.

I am just amazed and awed by Charlie's stories. So when the books started coming out on Audio I was super excited.
In this audiobook, we have the amazing Greg Boudreaux to do the narration. His voice is like velvet.
He just has a way of bringing all the characters to life. I just popped my earbuds in the other day and cleaned while I listened to this book. It was amazing and made my having to clean not such a chore.

Chance and Darren are from 2 completely different worlds. We have a lovely age gap but the author did such a lovely job of bringing them to life that these two work so well together.
They really struggle and have a bumpy road but I really enjoyed taking the journey with them.
This was a new narrator for me i found him really lovely.
Derrick did a great job of bringing the characters and the story to life. I can't wait to listen to more of his work.

I really enjoyed this story about Chase and Jackson!
Chase has had a tough life due to the past and the people.
Unfortunately, the past is still haunting him but with the help of his friendship with Floyd and his soon-to-be more friendship with Jackson, he's starting to be more than just the pain and fear of his past has made him.
Jackson is just a big softy, but oh so hot!!! When he decides he wants a relationship, not just a hook up he turns to his friend Chase for help, not knowing his attraction for the other man is mutual.
These two together will melt your heart.
Narrator i mean come on it's Michael Pauley we all love his smooth dream boat voice. He has a way of sucking you into the book so you feel like you are there with Chase and Jackson.

Toby Andrews is a busy, forgetful, scatterbrained musician with ADHD, a precocious dog named Ruffles, and a bad rep for partying too hard. When Toby’s actions put an all-important contract with a large label in jeopardy, his manager sarcastically suggests the omega needs a keeper who'll redden his bottom if he steps out of line. 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.

We finally get Luke. He is grown up enough to get his own story. Daniel is just adorable doing his best to get Luke to want to date.
John Solo is a wonderful narrator. He is new to me. I am so impressed with the things he can do with his voice.

Ryan is the last unmated omega from the original group that settled at the lodge. He's the runt of the pack. The beloved kid brother that everyone adores. Now he's all grown up, and has seen the joy that his friends all share with their mates. Ryan claims that he doesn't want a mate. He'd rather be alone than to be bossed around by yet another person who doesn't really see past his bratty exterior to the real man that lies beneath.

I have been looking forward to hearing Ryan's story well what feels like forever. it did not disappoint. I loved getting to see him grow in this book Ryan really was a true brat let's face we all can be at times and sometimes it fun. Ryan just needed the pack to see him as a man and not a boy. Great end to the series.
I always find myself smiling and laughing while listening to this series.John quickly moved up my list of most favorite narrators that is for sure.

Maxx has been waiting for a mate of his own. He's watched every alpha in his pack from his older brother to his best friends, all couple up one by one with omegas to call their own. Maxx has always believed in fate, and he knows that Fenris above has the perfect wolf fated to be his mate. It's just a matter of when they will meet. Oskar doesn't believe in fated mates, nor does he want a mate at all for that matter. After dealing with a vicious ex, Oskar doesn't want to ever have to answer to an alpha again. Besides, who would want an over-sized Alpha looking Omega like him anyway? What he doesn't expect, is to meet a little wolf alpha that makes his big bear heart turn to goo.

Right from the beginning, these two had such a struggle to get to their fated mating and HEA, everything just seemed to be set against them.
All the stuff that Oskar went through in his past and has to deal with in this book just ripped your heart out.
Max was the perfect mate for Oskar, he made sure that Oskar always felt safe with him and I think that was a huge relief for Oskar knowing he could depend on Max to not hurt him no matter what happens.
Audio - I think John is an awesome narrator. I have now \listened to a few of his books and he just blows me away with all the differences he can make in a voice.
