Publisher's Summary

Ben is a pebble-gifting season reject. He wandered the cold streets of Anchorage for three weeks straight, hoping an alpha would give him a pebble. But no one did. 

Axel is banished. He lost his temper four years ago and almost killed the alpha who abandoned his brother. Now, he can only spend a handful of days per year in Anchorage, which is when he comes upon a sad penguin shifter in a wrinkled tuxedo.

When Cyrano runs into Ben and Axel by chance, he decides to lure them both to bed. Clearly, Ben needs someone to show him how irresistibly attractive he is, and Axel needs to be reminded that he’s a good man, despite what happened in the past. 

Cyrano’s sure he can do both at the same time. On the same night. After all, he’s good at multitasking. It’s a perfect plan. Until he falls in love. With both of them. 

A Home for Ben is an MMM romance with an accidental pet tortoise, two omegas who get pregnant at the same time, and cameos from previous characters in the Alaskan Pebble Gifters series. This book is the third in the series and will only make sense if you’ve read/listened to the first two books. 

Please note that A Home for Ben includes both traditional mpreg and mpreg of the penguin egg variety.

A sweet MMM!

AH! I absolutely love this series.

I was a little hesitant to listen to this one since I saw the narrator was changed, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Zachary Zabba is a new to me narrator, but ge definitely did justice to all 3 character voices.

I had so much fun listening to this one.
It's definitely worth recommend.

Compelling. Detailed World-build and Lore. Fun.

Zachary Zaba performance of A Home for Ben is convincing , engaging, upbeat , caring and entertaining.

His voices for Ben, Cy and Axe - the heroes- are exactly how they should sound. It fit the characters personalities , inner animals and how each identify sexually, perfectly.

He skillfully brought this compelling , sexy and fun story, it's intricate world building , rich lore and it's characters to LIFE . Also, very happy to say, his comedic timing was spot on.

The editing and production is smooth and seamless. No weird noises, awkward pauses and loud breathing, at any point.

When I read , that there was going to be a new narrator for the series, as Drew Bacca who narrated the first two books retired ; I was concerned. BUT , I shouldn't have, Zachary Zaba did a wonderful job. He did justice to Amy Bellows wonderful , addictive , must read/listen Alaskan Pebble Gifter series.

In Conclusion:
Yes, I recommended.
Yes, it's worthy of an audio credit.
Yes, I will be re-listening again and again.
Yes, you should buy it , listen to it and have as much fun as I did.

A loving home for Ben and his men

Can two big polar bears make one sad little penguin shifter taste the sweet love and a warm home he so deserves? The answer is YES! Omg! This is so cute. I have loved the previous two books in the series and this one is definitely not an exception.

Ben is a penguin shifter who grew up in foster care but he really wanted to find a forver home in the arms of a loving man according to the tradition of penguin shifters. But after no one giving him a pebble for three weeks straight, he thought there’s no hope for him at all. However fate has different plans and he found the home he desperately wanted in the arm of two polar bear shifters. Axel is a big alpha who needed a second at life while Cyano is a fireball who connects everything and make everyone works as a pair. I love how dynamic, fluid and natural these three are in a relationship. A gruff but loving alpha and an omega who identified himself as an alpha and a pure, little omega penguin, they are all so adorable. This is funny, heartwarming and romantic at the same time. I can’t wait for more books in the series.

Wonderful!

This audiobook brings a favorite book to life in a wonderful way. The narration is really great. The narrator does a fantastic job of doing distinct voices for each of the three MCs in a way that flows naturally. I enjoy the other side characters coming back in and how the narrator uses his voice to build the scene in my mind. Special kudos on the growly adult scenes.

Power

I really loved all the strong feelings and the battle for love and power between all the men. Ben is sweet but he posses his own strength. I was so glad that he was the piece that helped Alex and Cyrano have their best life together as well. I also love the twists this series is taking us on as well move through the stories.

I listened to the audio version. It was very well done and very enjoyable.

Three’s not a crowd

Ben is so adorable. I just loved him from the very first time he’s introduced. Axel is strong and an alpha that’s been banished to an area that’s for Polar bears who can’t control their rage. They meet when Ben goes into a bar on the last day of Penguin Pebble Gifting Season. He feels so alone but Axel takes him to get a bite to eat at another bar where they run into Cyrano another polar bear. There’s a chemistry from the start and they all decide to help Ben get rid of his virginity. None of them expected them to become fated mates and for them to give birth to eggs and a cub!

So much happens in this sweet book that I just had to listen to in one day! I just had to! Amy Bellows did another great job writing a beautiful story of three men who all think they are damaged in some way and how they are actually perfect together. Great narrator, Zachary Zaba. Loved his voice and each character distinction! Enjoy!

Better Than Pi!

A Home for Ben (audiobook)
MMy Thoughts Confessions and Review

This was a sweet story with light Daddy/ boy elements, polyamory, shifter characters, a trans-MC that presented in a way I have never read before, (magically clever), and loads of sMMMexy Sweet times to delight and titillate even the most hardened heart and eardrums.

The narrator, Zachary Zaba, was new to me, but I enjoyed all his characterizations and how he brought Ben, Cy, and Ax to life along with all the other characters in the story.

I did feel I missed a few things not having known a few of the secondary characters who were MCs in the first books of the series. So, I do plan to rectify that for myself by going back and starting the series from the beginning. I also feel it will give me a better understanding of the magic that surrounds the shifters that live in and around Anchorage. I have never read a penguin/ polar bear shifter romance before and found the history and myth surrounding this story intriguing.

I did feel the ending was not complete between Ben, Cy, and Axe and while this could be read as a stand-alone, there was more to be said and it was more of an HFN. Guess we shall see.

Cute mpreg romance

First of all, penguin shifters are adorable. The characters drew me in with their romance. I loved the dynamics among the three shifters. Unique and interesting best friend to lover dynamic with a third who helped the other two smooth their jagged edges enough for all three of them to fit together and create a family when all three men had been cut off and alienated from their society for various reasons. Enjoyed it and the world the characters lived in.

A fantastic mpreg romance

I've enjoyed all the books in this series, but something about Ben, Cyrano, and Axel's romance resonated with me on a different level. I was immediately captivated by their journey, and their adventure unraveled truths I wasn't expecting about polar bear and penguin shifters. I loved learning more about their history and magic, and the fact that I got to meet new, intriguing species was an unexpected bonus.

To some degree, Axel, Cyrano, and Ben were all treated like outcasts by their society. Whether it was Cyrano's identity, Axel's status as a rager, or Ben's failed pebble gifting experience, these men had all started to lose hope that they would find their happily ever after. It was absolutely adorable to see the three of them fall in love, and their relationship was way Dommier and steamier than I anticipated. I was a huge fan of their dynamic, and it made a lot of sense to me why Cyrano and Axel couldn't work things out before Ben came along. The three of them needed each other to make their relationship work, and there was something beautiful about seeing how their romance unfolded. Ben was the sweetest boy for Daddy Axel and eagerly obeyed all of Cyrano's sexy commands. The three of them just seemed to click together, and it was no surprise to me that they ended up as fated mates.

Though the majority of this story focused on how Cyrano, Ben, and Axel found each other and cemented their bond, I was excited about how much more there was to learn. From the mystery surrounding Ben's family to the unexpected responsibilities of Axel's job, this book answered a lot of my questions and gave me a hundred more things to think about. I'm really excited to see where this series goes next, and if this book is any indication I know I'll love it!

**I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this book. This review expresses my honest thoughts and opinions.

A great addition to the series!

This series caught me since book one and this new story is just as good and endearing than the previous ones. Mr Zaba made a wonderful job with this captivating story with his amazing acting skills and charismatic voice. My heart broke with Ben, Cy and Axel life stories but slowly was clear they needed each other to heal. The epilogue was worthy of any angst their story could have. Another wonderful tale in the Alaskan Pebble Gifters.

Sad to so sweet

Ben and Axel made me so sad at the beginning of this book. They didn't have anyone who cared and things seemed like they weren't going to change. Then, along comes Cyrano trying to do a good deed with no strings attached for any of them only to end up creating such a wonderful loving family. This story has all the feels and Zachary Zaba performs them perfectly. All the lows and then highs, the cold bleakness then the loving warmth are right there in his voice.

A happy ending for Ben

Ben is a sweet penguin who arrives at a bar the last day of pebble season, finds Axel who has a tag that won’t let him mate.
So they go to a restaurant where Cy, who had a past with Axel, hits on Ben, The throuple hits it off and together they embark on an adventure that ends up in mating. Lots goes on but what what I like the most is Cy getting softer, Axel making his way out of the dumps and Ben finding the forever happiness he deserves. Great narration too.

Penguins, polar bears, and Daddies...oh my!

Penguins, polar bears, and Daddies...oh my!

Amy Bellows has been one of my favorite mpreg authors since I picked up a copy of A Pebble for Lewis and practically inhaled it in one sitting. From that moment on I’ve devoured all of her work without a lick of disappointment. Because of that, I was happy to snap onto the offer of listening to A Home for Ben for an honest review. It’s book three of the Pebble Gifter series and I was excited about the offer! A book by Amy Bellows about a sweet penguin shifter and two polar bear Daddies which is read by Drew Bacca? What could be better? The answer is nothing, my friends. A Home for Ben was awesome!

After being abandoned as an infant in Cheyenne, Ben found a hint about where his family might have come from. So, for his pebble-giving season, he found his way to Anchorage in search of a mate. The eager little penguin shifter planned to find his mate and then go in search of his family on the North Slope. However, that wasn’t meant to be. After three weeks of trudging around Anchorage, Ben hadn’t found a mate. Dejected, our little penguin finds himself drinking alone in a bar.

Enter Axel! Axe is an Alpha polar bear shifter with a bit of a problem. After losing his temper and taking it out on a certain individual, Axe is seen as a danger. To protect others from his rage he was banished to the North Slopes. However, he’s in town for a Council meeting when he sees a boy in need of some kindness. Axe quickly takes little Ben under his wing, the Daddy part of his nature kicking in.

When the bartender won’t serve Axe because he’s a Rager, they blow off the bar and head for the Anchor Club where they run in Cyrano. Cy is an omega polar bear with an interesting personality. He knows he’s an omega but doesn’t identify as one. Instead, he takes on a more dominant, alpha role when it comes to playing with boys. Oh, and Cy and Axe were lovers before Axe was banished to the slopes.

What do you get when you put all three of these fellas together? You have a wonderful threesome with an interesting dynamic. Two Daddy polar bears looking after a sweet penguin boy in desperate need of loving. A perfect mixture of personalities, kinks, and love.

I really loved how Amy and Drew brought these characters to life. They were all unique in their own ways which made for a heartwarming story with diverse characters. The introduction of the Rusalka was fascinating. I love the wonderful world and lore development. It really shows how much time and effort Amy has put into making her mpreg series one with great detail.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the mpreg genre. If you liked the previous Pebble Gifter books, enjoy Amy’s work, or enjoy the talented narration of Drew Bacca, definitely give this book a chance!

Enjoyable!

4.25 Stars!

This was a great addition to the series. I'm usually wary of MMM because I sometimes end up feeling like someone would feel left out. That was so not the case here. Axel, Cyrano, and Ben all had a specific role in their trio, and it felt like they balanced each other. It didn't hurt that they were really hot together.

I enjoyed the mystery to Ben's past and seeing Cyrano come to terms with being an Omega with dominant tendencies and Axel regain his confidence and life back after being ostracized for so long.

I really liked Zachary Zaba's narration. He did a really good job bringing these three men to life. Recommendable!
