Zain was just a dog walker. It was an unconventional job for a werewolf, even a brand new one, but he liked dogs and they liked him. It only seemed to make sense... right up until the point a vampire called him in to take care of his human pup. When his life collided with Liam and Caleb's, none of them were prepared for the directions it could take. Especially Zain. But between the sexy pup and the vampire's creativity, the power struggles pitting dominance against submission - and acceptance - the two might be too intriguing to just walk away from.

A great continuation of book 1. Liam and Caleb had a great dynamic between them but adding Zain made it so much better. Zain balances them. He gives Caleb more of the affection he needs and he helps Liam be better with Caleb. I really enjoyed this story and am curious to see where it goes from here. The narrator again did a greatb job with both the characters and the story. I really like his portrayal of Zain.

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.

A great start to a new series. I really enjoyed the ebook and hearing the audio was just amazing. It adds so much to the story especially with this great narrator who made it so enjoyable. He brings life to the characters and the story. I especialy love the narrator's portrayal of Toby. Thorne is exactly what Toby needs in his life. Thorne centers Toby and makes his life so much better. I love how Thorne takes charge and really cares about Toby and helps him with every aspect of his life, even his career. Love them as a couple and Ruffles is just too cute! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Another spectacular story from these two wonderful authors! This story captivated me right from the beginning and would not let me put it down until the very end. Sam and Layne are spectacular characters with sizzling chemistry. Sam believes he's no good for Layne, but neither one can fight their attraction. Great story with drama, suspense, a big surprise and lots of steamy sex scenes!
The narrator did a spectacular job of bringing the story to life and giving the characters a whole other dimension while bringing them to life.

They're usually brought over by the boatload from the mainland, but with an omega-killing virus on a rampage, few can act as proper child-bearers. Then Roland shows up, and all the alpha males turn to him. Especially the rival alphas, Lewis Travis and Malachi Daniels. Funny thing is, Roland knows both Lewis and Malachi. One Roland went to college with. The other is an ex. Now confronted with an awkward island dynamic, they must work together to ensure the future sanctity of their kind...or else they will be wiped out forever!

This is a good read with a "one omega who can save all" theme. Roland is an omega who arrives on Omegaverse Island and is instantly attracted to an old college friend, Lewis and then later to his ex boyfriend Malachi. He can't decide between them and now they all must work together to save everyone's future. It's an ok story with lots of sex amongst several people with very open relationships. The narrator didn't do much for the story and his character voices were just ok. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I totally love this series and this story of Thomas and Alex is amazing! I love that they get a second chance at a relationship they they once kept hidden from everyone. Of course it isn’t easy since Thomas is still in the closet and his brothers don’t like Alex. It was great watching them overcome their obstacles and grow closer. Love seeing the couples from the other books and how they all interact.
Michael Pauley is totally amazing as a narrator and he nailed all of the characters and the story perfectly. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

In a sea of kink that he’s never even considered, one sweet letter stands out. It’s polite and earnest, and something about the two men’s words touches him in a way he never expected...but they’re not just looking for a lover...they’re looking for a master.

Jackson may have been an accidental master but he was definitely the perfect master for Cooper and Sawyer. Jackson’s sister did him a big favor by messing up his ad although he didn’t seem to think so at the time. Cooper and Sawyer were great together but when Jackson came into their lives, it truly completed these 2 pups. I love watching their relationship develop and seeing Jackson take charge.
Jackson realizes right away just how different Cooper and Sawyer are and he’s able to give each one just what they need. It’s truly a beautiful story of 2 pups finding their perfect master.
The narrator did a spectacular job with all of the voices and in bringing the story to life. I especially love his characterization of Cooper. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Two broken omegas and one hard-edged alpha…three men who are stronger than they think...especially when they trust each other enough to be vulnerable. A pair of omegas who are everything to each other...not only are they best friends, they’re also lovers. In all the years that they’ve been on the streets fighting to survive, they’ve had one end goal: to one day find an alpha strong enough to love both of them equally. Since his return to civilian life, Beaumont has yet to reconnect with society. Instead, he spends his nights running from nightmares and memories of war.

Absolutely love this story. Gideon and Lukas, 2 omegas, are great together and when they bring Beau into their relationship as their alpha it is sheer perfection. I love these 3 together, they make a perfect triad and work very well together. They truly help heal one another and Beau is the perfect protector for Gideon and Lukas.

Absolutely brilliant crossover of 2 of the best series ever! The storyline is magnificent and I love seeing so many of the Marians and the Protectors. Watching Ben and Reese’s relationship develop is spectacular. They are so good together. Love Georgie, what a great kid. Ben and Reese have a lot of personal issues to work through but I love how they do it together and I love how protective Reese is of Ben. It was great to see Griff finally find his brother and I love how supportive and loving both the Marians and the Protectors are with one another. I would definitely love more crossover books!
Michael Pauley was a brilliant narrator for this story. He managed so many different voices expertly. It really was incredible to hear all of the different characters and really feel all of their emotions!

And once I make you mine, I’m not going to set you free. I’m king of the Vegas underground, and I take what I want. So run. Stay the hell away from my casino. Or I’ll tie you to my bed.

This is a great mafia romance story that I enjoyed. Great storyline with your bad boy mafia boss and the innocent girl who works for his hotel. I really like how dominant and strong Nico is but at the same time he has a softer and loving side with Sondra. It's a captivating story that will pull you right in. I'm a bit on the fence with the narrator, I love his voice for Nico but not crazy about his voice for Sondra. He did a good job with the overall story.
