Eric's grown more confident. He has to admit that. With Marcus's love and support, he's stronger than ever, but it's not enough. His daddy's given him the ability to go after what he wants, but there's so much more that feels just out of reach. Eric doesn't want part of the lifestyle or some of the submission...he wants everything. When it comes to their relationship, Eric is ready to jump in headfirst. But how does Eric show his daddy that everything doesn't have to be planned out to be perfect?

Eight years ago, Eli gave up his future as a veterinarian because of a blue line on a pregnancy test. Now a single dad to the best little boy in the world, he's working at an animal shelter and trying his hardest to ignore the small town gossip that follows him and his son around. Contrary to popular belief, he does know who the other father is - the irresistible alpha from his youth. But Matt's upper class family doesn't think an omega is good enough for their son.

Eli had a rough time raising his son, alone. He made a mistake a long time ago and he has the guilt on his shoulders, of his son paying part of that price. He didn't tell his son's father that he was pregnant and while that didn't guarantee that he would have Matt by his side, he would have been in his son's life. When Matt comes back into his life, Eli isn't sure he will survive letting him back in and loosing him. As Eli and Matt navigate their feelings and desire, they also have to figure out how to explain it all to their son. I really enjoyed reading and listening to this story. The narrator did a great job with all of the voices and i could tell when it was a different person.

Garrett was at his breaking point. There were only so many times in a week you should have to see someone you were...attracted to...infatuated with...but certainly didn’t have a crush on. Doms didn’t have those. Especially on a customer who probably wasn’t even gay, much less a sub. Business 101 - do not flirt with a client. Wyatt was losing his mind. Hiding his obsession was getting harder and harder. All he wanted to do was kneel in front of Garrett and call him Master. But the sexy insurance agent never seemed to see him.

Wyatt has been driving himself crazy because he hasn't been able to let his insurance agent know that he wishes he was his Dom. When Garrett finds out what Wyatt does for a living, it opens up possibilities that he didn't know where there. I loved reading this series and hearing added an element that just made the story that much better!

Caleb Harken has spent six years wrongfully imprisoned for his father's treachery. Tortured and reviled by the very wolf pack he should have been leading as alpha, he is not surprised to learn he’s finally to meet his death at the hands of the human rebel leader, Taegan Callan. Taegan gave up his dreams of a life-mate and a family after seeing too many humans butchered at the hands of the wolves - even if Caleb doesn’t seem to be the bloodthirsty savage he expects.

When I read this story, it tore me up, but listening to this book broke my heart. The suffering that he went through came through loud and clear thanks to Joel Leslie. I had to stop at certain points, because it kind of became too much, but I couldn't stay away for too long. I love this series and can't wait for the next one!

Xander Griffith is a math geek with an eye for designer labels, a love of photography, and a fierce need to protect those he loves. He was mesmerized by Julian the moment he laid eyes on him: gorgeous, brilliant, and unabashedly himself. But Julian is also his friend's off-limits baby brother. So Xander spends the next three years distancing himself, focusing his energy on his math-letic friends, his boxer Cassius, and his LGBT youth center, Safe Harbor.

Xander spent so much time thinking that he couldn't have a relationship with Julian because of his relationship to his friend that it was timed they lost. When he finally decided to face the fact that he was in love with Julian he was afraid of what Julian would think of his family. I think that the work Xander has done with Safe Haven is amazing and Julian embraced it perfectly. I love this series and am looking forward to more.

Kevin is bisexual. He knows the truth: He's had girlfriends and craves experience with men. He'd never tell anyone his sexy or romantic fantasies. And could never imagine coming out to his dad or his mates. They are all blue collar workers like him.

Kevin works as a scaffolder and is in an industry he believes, that is very masculine and close minded. He hasn't allowed himself to truly express himself the way he wants. He meets Perry in an interesting way and the friendship and relationship that follows allows Kevin to become the person that he feels is true. Kevin and Perry work through their own issues and become stronger together. I look forward to reading/listening more from this author.

Mark Hansen thought working as artist’s assistant would be glamorous, especially if that artist was a vampire. Black tie events, witty repartee, gracing the pages of the local style section. Didn’t happen. Not even once. Jonathan Varga is an enigma. True, he’s quiet, generous, and scrupulously polite. But he has zero social life, refuses to be interviewed or photographed, and insists he can only consume feline blood.

This take on the vampire is one I haven't read before, but thoroughly enjoyed! This author is one that haven't been disappointed once. This book is a new concept for me and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I don't want to give away too much, but the vampires are a contagious virus. As always the narration was spot on and I was able to get into the characters and the story. This story was one that I totally recommend and look forward to many more from this author.

Henry never believed his older sister Alice's fantastic tales about the world down the rabbit hole. When he's whisked away to the bizarre land, his best chance for escape is to ally himself with the person called the Mad Hatter. Hatter - an odd but strangely attractive fellow - just wants to avoid execution. If that means delivering "Boy Alice" to the Queen of Hearts at her Red Castle, Hatter will do what he has to do to stay alive. It doesn't matter if Henry and Hatter find each other intolerable. They're stuck with each other.

This story is amazing! I was kind of annoyed with Henry in the beginning of the story, but he totally redeemed himself. The Hatter was quirky without being over the top an easy character to love. This story is lovely book about learning to have an open mind and not be so quick to judge things because of the way they appear. Joel Froomkin made each character come to life in a way that had me completely invested in their well being. I looked forward to listening to this story every spare moment I had so that I could hear what happened next to Henry and the Hatter.
