I thought there was only one thing I needed to make me happy. I was so sure becoming a rock star would heal the dark corners inside me. But every time I walk onto the stage, with a roaring crowd screaming my name, all I can think about is the boy I left behind. All I want to do is rewind and make a different choice.

Joel Reading was lonely. Nineteen years old, estranged from his family, and seemingly unable to ever get a second date, he'd surrounded himself with the things he loved most: old books and old music. When one date got out of hand before it even began, Joel found himself displaced from a flooded apartment and on the doorstep of a handsome and older stranger more than willing to take Joel in for the night.

"A bite or scratch will turn the victims to one of the infected within 72 hours..." Those words rang in Evan Berry's head. Waking to discover he'd been scratched was a death sentence. Deciding that he would not force Carl or Betty to have to put him down after he turned, Evan said farewell to his group and slipped out in the middle of the night. Deciding that he would make one last run in the hopes that he could bring back enough supplies for his beloved Newfoundland, Chewie, Evan embarks on a quest that will show him just how fast and far society has fallen.

Strange things are happening all around Brinnswick. Things that remind me of a piece of my past I’d rather forget. Girls are being killed, drained of blood, and left with strange markings on their bodies. When I finally connect the cases together, a specialist is called in - though, what he’s a specialist of is beyond me. When the chief assigns him as my new partner for the case, I can’t help but groan on the inside. Why of all people would I be assigned to Ailin Ellwood?

Dalton Andrews has seen it all. After spending a little over 10 years with the Denver PD, he’d had enough and joined Wildlife Services, not expecting it to be such an isolating career. When his job takes him on assignment to Crooked Bend, he jumps at the chance to work with actual people again when the town’s sheriff needs to hire a few more deputies. While at his new boss’ wedding reception, he unexpectedly meets blue-eyed architect Colin McKenzie that makes his brain go fuzzy.

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.

Although I hadn't read the other books in this series, I didn't feel particularly lost so this one works well as a standalone. I really enjoyed this one from start to finish and I really want to go back and read the others in the series! The authors did a great job building the story and the characters had excellent chemistry! I really liked this narrator and thought he did an excellent job with this book!

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.

I enjoyed this one more than I thought I would! I've read a book by Peter Styles before that wasn't my cup of tea but I liked this one. This was the first time I have heard Barney Parkwynne before narrating and I thought he did a good job! I plan to explore more of his narrations in the future because he did a nice job with this short book. If you are looking for a nice quick read, look no further :)

There are two things in this world I know to be true: I have terrible taste in men, and all alphas are jerks. You’d think my own pack kicking me out would’ve been a clue to stay away from alphas. Omegas are rare. We’re smaller, weaker, can’t usually get pregnant...all valid reasons for disowning your own family, right? But it only took one night for stupidly handsome Troy Miyu to make me forget all the reasons I should’ve known better. One night to start falling for him, to realize it wasn’t just amazing chemistry we shared, but a true mate bond.

I must say that this was not one of my favorite audiobooks...the story line was good and I liked the main characters. I was interested in their story...but the narrator of this one just didn't do it for me...his voice was slow and stilted and just not right for this book. I don't think I would listen to another one that he narrates in the future :(

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?)

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this particular book! I don't think I have read anything by Liam Kingsley or Preston Walker so I didn't know what to expect going into it. I know I haven't listened to a nararation by Bishop King. I really thought he did a good job of bringing these characters to life and I will certainly listen to him in the future! I enjoyed the story line and thought that the main characters had plenty of chemistry...really enjoyed it!
