A great Christmastime story that is a great addition to this wonderful series. I was really glad to get Tom’s story and Colin is just perfect for him. I really enjoyed watching these two come together. The way Tom speaks had me laughing and the narrator really nailed his character with all his attitude and inflections. I truly enjoyed this story and how the narrator really brought it to life. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I really enjoyed the story itself. Ty and Carter definitely had a rough and unconventional start to their relationship but they are great together. They have a lot of obstacles coming at them from all sides that they have to overcome for a very well deserved HEA. Unfortunately I did not like the narrator for this story. There isn't much characterization and is narration is very slow without much inflection or feeling. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

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.

This a quick listen with little angst and an overall ok story. Kyle and AJ are interesting characters and it was enjoyable watching them grow closer as the story went on. I like seeing Kyle slowly adapt to life on the ranch and AJ really accepting his feelings for AJ. The narrator did an ok job with the story, I just felt that his voice for Kyle sounded a bit too forced and unnatural which had me tuning out at some points.

OWEN - I learned early on to keep my expectations low. Somehow, I keep ending up disappointed anyway. Like now: I finally have an alpha, and I bet I could take him in a fight. I’m no expert, but I don’t think that’s how that’s supposed to work. Everything seemed good at first. Or as much as it was ever going to be, auctioned off to a strange alpha so I could pop out their litter. But hey, in this time of mysteriously low birth rates, we fertile omegas are a prized commodity - emphasis on the commodity. (No, I’m not bitter. Why do you ask?)

It's a good story that is a quick listen. I wasn't really captivated by the story but it is enjoyable. I like Owen and how he is a strong omega who is willing to sacrifice himself for the good of his pack. I wasn't impressed with Dante, I felt he was a bit too weak. The narrator did an ok job but at times it is difficult to differentiate between the two main character voices so you can't always tell who is speaking.

Red and Laz are both wonderful characters who each have issues, especially trust issues, which make them skeptical to being in a relationship. But when Red becomes Laz's bodyguard, it's hard to keep their distance from one another. It was great to see these 2 men slowly give in to their feelings for one another even with all the bumps along the way. With a killer on the loose after Laz and someone trying to make Laz doubt Red, can they really have their HEA? The narrator did a great job bringing everything to life and with all of the character voices. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Great follow up to the first book. Jackson, Cooper and Sawyer further explore their relationship in this story. They each seem to be coming into their own. Cooper is great, he's so confident and optimistic about their relationship and he's very sure of his feelings, I love his attitude. Jackson is really growing into his role as Master and is very good at reading what his pups want. Sawyer is finally starting to open up and I really enjoy watching him grow and open up more. The narrator did an excellent job with the story and he's really good at expressing each character. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A phenomenal story that captivated me right from the beginning. Kyle went through so much with Fred and Dallas taking him in is the best thing that could have ever happened to him. Dallas and Kyle have incredible chemistry and a very strong attraction. I really like how they were friends before their relationship started. I love how Dallas helped Kyle heal and rebuild his self confidence. The narrator did a spectacular job with the characters and the story.

Another spectacular addition to this amazing series. Ronan and Ten are back in an action packed mystery along with their friends. Ten and Ronan are more in love than ever and I love seeing how their relationship continues to grow and strengthen. There are lots of twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat with past enemies and possessions. I really like that Fitzgibbon and Greeley are more prominent in this book. The narrator again did an amazing job with all of the characters and with the story itself. Looking forward to the next one coming to life.

I love this series! Each installment just gets better and better. Ten and Ronan are back but there's lot of tension because Ten wished his gift away and can't seem to get it back. This really frustrates Ten which causes tension with Ronan. But Ronan is amazing, very loving and understanding while standing by his man. They have another case to solve but I really love that this story has a lot of the growth and progress of Ten's and Ronan's relationship. And the ending was absolutely spectacular, had me tearing up!! The narrator is AMAZING. He really gets all of the moods, nuances, and feelings of the characters and the story.
