Getting knocked up mid mission isn’t the absolute worst way to torpedo your special forces career, I guess. But getting knocked up by my best friend - a mafia prince - makes for a special kind of FUBAR that military jargon can't quite handle. Life is about prioritizing what matters most and standing by those choices. I’ve never regretted mine. Parents said pick between being gay or being part of this family, I said see you later. My superiors said you can have a husband and kids or you can be the most badass omega special ops leader this army’s ever seen, I said sign me up.

This is one of those stories that you wait on and it is so much better than you imagined. Best friends Cody and Nikolai cross over into a romantic relationship that was not planned. The way their story unfolds will have you sitting in your car and ignoring the world to find out what happens next.

The narration on this book is incredible.

I have read this book more times than I can count and hearing it come to life was incredible. From their first meeting to the ending of the book, you will be cheering on for Cade and Braden while cursing those that wish them harm. I cannot wait to hear the next story.

I enjoyed the narrator and believe he did a good job on bringing them to life.

We get Tom's HEA and this could not be a better story for our Tom. I love that Tom's true self is revealed in this book. Colin watches Tom and to say their first meeting is memorable is an understatement. There are twists and turns that you might not see coming and I love how their story moves.

The narrator nailed what I had imagined Tom's voice to be. Actually he did on all of them but Tom was the one that I have always had in my head. Well, so to speak :)

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.

Floyd and Greyson are completely adorable as they figure their way around each other and into their relationship. Floyd's background is interesting and completely not what I thought it would be from the previous books. Greyson showing up, insecurities included, causes Floyd to look for more. I love how well written E. Davies's books are and hearing it in audio is an even greater treat.

Michael Pauley does an amazing job with the narration of this story.

Kyle is in a relationship that makes him feel like he's less than and not worthy. Dallas has watched and wanted Kyle from their first meeting but stays in the friend zone since Kyle has an alpha. I don't want to give spoilers but once Kyle is free from his alpha, he begins to look at himself and Dallas differently. I love how Dallas doesn't want to change Kyle and loves him for who he is.

The narrator does an incredible job and I loved every minute of this audio!

Lucky and Mason have been in the earlier books and you could literally feel the heat between them. This book does not disappoint. Not only is there heat between them but the emotions of these two men are heart wrenching and beautiful. We find out what it was that Mason kept secret and it will hurt your heart at what he has went through. We also get to see more into what makes Lucky tick. You can catch up with the other Kings and we get to see a little more of King.

The narrator does an incredible job with making each character unique and man, does he nail the Cuban phrases.

We've known Brick since the first book as the gruff, older alpha guard. We met Nathan in the last book as the omega dragon kidnapped and brain washed (not sure how else to explain that one) that they freed. Now, we get to see these two work out their mating in very hot and loving ways. As Nathan's adopted family comes to rescue him, they discover that he doesn't need rescuing anymore and join the dragons in the fight against their enemy. You will crack up at exactly who his family is. Brick learns that some times what you think you know is not right and it's a wonderful moment. There is a lot of action in this story as they fight against the enemy and it is amazing. You will also laugh out loud at points and I absolutely love Nathan's parents.

The narrator does an incredible job of making each character unique and brings the story to life.

Daniel is suffering from a traumatic brain injury that results in language issues, memory issues, and an almost child like way of expressing emotions. This does not mean that he is child like; simply that he does not have the hesitation that many adults have in expressing emotions. I think that makes this story come alive in ways that others falter. Vasile is an old vampire that is trying to protect his family from attacks by rogue shifters, which leads to their first meeting. There are misunderstandings and blocks to their mating but it is an amazing adventure to "read".

The narrator is wonderful and while there are some words that might cause you to frown a little, I think that is because it is not how I am used to hearing it in my living area. Hope there are more to come!

This is the second in a series and while you don't have to read the first, I recommend it.
