Publisher's Summary

You can’t plan when you’ll fall in love - sometimes it just kinda sneaks up on you.

Todd Foxx was only looking to unwind from the stress of running the Sausage Shack when he went out for an evening of fun at the Big O. After he ended the evening by hooking up with a hot new alpha in town, he certainly never thought he’d see him again.

Hugo Keller left his high-profile job as a certified cicerone back east and moved across country to take a brewmaster job in Hollydale’s unique beer garden and sausage restaurant. A single dad, his only plans involved giving his young son a place to put down roots and focusing on his new job - even if it was a major step down from where he began. He certainly never expected to see his smoking hot one night stand again.

Can two men - and one precocious little boy - find a way to make a family? As Hugo and Todd slowly journey from lovers to coworkers to friends and back to lovers, they’ll need to deal with an ex-wife with boundary issues, a surprise pregnancy, and mysterious "mill girls" who like to giggle in the night.

Return to the world of Hollydale with a quirky romance full of all the fluffy feels and sweet heat that you’d expect from a Hollydale story. This is the ninth book of the Hollydale Omegas series but is absolutely able to be enjoyed as a stand-alone. This is a 42,000-word novel and definitely contains an HEA. Listeners over 18 only please! And yes, this audiobook contains M/PREG, adults adulting in sexy grown-up ways, and way more than an occasional use of potty mouth language.

MMy Thoughts and Review:
This was my first trip to Hollydale, but I enjoyed my time there so much I will be back very soon.

Susi Hawke has become one of my favorite authors this year. No matter which pen name she is writing under her stories always transport me to another time and place. I love escaping in her books where the characters have multiple layers and are always imperfect and unpolished. The character flaws always add that extra layer of believability, even when reading Mpreg.

I also love that the dynamics between her Alpha and Omega males are imagined as male. One of the biggest downsides to Mpreg is often the story reads as a MF Romance would and the Omegas are completely emasculated. I love that S. Hawke doesn't do that to her characters.💗

In Cider Spiced Omega, the MCs meet at a club and enjoy the pleasure of each other's company, think more 2019 than 1920 😂. The next day the Alpha, Hugo realizes the sMMexy Omega he enjoyed so much the night before is his new boss, Todd, owner of the Sausage Shack.

The story is filled with bad sausage puns, nosy but well meaning friends and family, an unexpected bun slowly baking, a strange group of young sisters who always seem to know more about Todd and Hugo than they should, and an adorable little boy who loves fiercely and steals the show from all the grown ups.

This was my first audio listen by narrator, Drew Bacca. He did a great job on voices though it took my southern ears a while to get used to the northern accent. 😂😂😂

Finding Love Making Family

This time we have help from the three mill girls. I kind of wished we had gotten a bit more interaction with them. I like how both of these men are driven and successful and it's great how their business dovetail together. Another sweet Hollydale addition.

Great Addition to Series

I really enjoyed this Hollydale story and its a great addition to the series. This is a sweet, no angst, slow-burn love story. I liked how their relationship grew from lust-filled one night stand to co-worker to friends to back to lovers. Their round about romance included and I loved Simon, Hugo's 4-year-old son, which definitely upped the cute factor for me. I enjoyed listening to the narrator and he kept me wanting to listen to the next chapter and helped me become more vested into the characters. Great read and listen for me during my commute.

Cute

Enjoyed this short, sweet and fluffy romance by Susi Hawke. If you are looking for a nicely well done short, this could be the one for you! I enjoyed the characters and it had very little angst. Drew Bacca is fairly new to me but I thought he did a nice job!

Great Story

I received an ARC of this audio for my honest review. Another great book by Susi. This story is about Todd and Hugo. Todd decides to go out after some nudging from his twin brother Scott. He meets a hot alpha and they go to the jungle room. They only exchange numbers but the next day at work Hugo realizes that the cute omega he met last night is actually his new boss. Can't wait for the next book in this series.

Another amazing Hollydale story

Hugo simply wants to create a new life for him and his son. When he arrives at his new job (absolutely love his title!), he realizes that the omega he had met the night before is his boss. As these two try to figure out their relationship, personal and business, along with how Hugo's son will take it, and Hugo's ex shows up. Well, to say that they need assistance is an understatement. Love how this story plays out!

The narrator does another amazing job of bringing these characters to life.

A sweet and fun story

Welcome back to Hollydale where a little magic always bring a special couple together. Todd and Hugo are perfect for each other with great chemistry. It was great to see them come together even with a crazy ex causing trouble. I love little Simon. This is a great addition to the series.

You can always count on Susi Hawke to write something sweet and fluffy. And that was exactly what I needed.

Single Daddy meets cute Restaurant owner

I love this Hollydale Omegas series, so it was with pleasure that I listened to the tale of the other twin Todd who owns the Sausage Shack restaurant and his meet cute at the Big O with single daddy and brewmaster Hugo.
I especially love precocious Simon, Hugo's little boy who you remember is just turning five...you remember!
As always, Drew Bacca does a wonderful job of bringing these characters to life. A trio of little girls...ghosts? No, Tom doesn't want to know...these girls seem to be nudging things in a certain direction! LOL
Highly recommended for all lovers of MPreg and of Susi Hawke in particular.

Good addition to the series!

Cider Spiced Omega is book 9 in the Honeydale Omegas series and I really recommend reading the series in order, there are a lot of cameos from previous MCs and while you might not be lost, I think you'll enjoy the story a whole lot more if you do.

Todd was adorable and while he'd never wanted kids, he was so good with Simon! I liked Hugo, although I was very fed up with him in regards to his ex, he was such a pushover. I just couldn't get why they made so many allowances for her, even when she was horrible to her own son most of the time. *sighs* 

Anyway, the audiobook was fun and sexy and it had a lot of Tom, my favorite character in the series, so overall, it was good. Plus, Drew Bacca's performance really made listening to the audiobook so much better. He's definitely one of my favorite narrators atm. Recommendable!

Short and Sweet

if you are looking for a short, sweet and satisfying audiobook you can't go wrong with any of the Hollydale Omega books. Set in the fictional and picturesque Hollydale, each book features an alpha and omega match, and more often than not a baby or two! Cider-Spiced Omega focuses on Todd, an omega who owns a sausage restaurant, and Hugh who is the beermaker he hires. An unexpected mysterious encounter leaves them a bit awkward on Hugh's first day, and a whole lot pregnant. With a great supporting cast (lots of cameos from past books!) an adorable 4 year old, and the "wurst" sausage jokes ever, this is a pretty sweet story. It did lag a little bit for more when Todd and Hugh waffled on their relationship status, but since the story is on the short side it was okay. Drew Bacca is a new narrator for me, but did a great job. He used a lot of inflection and accents to distinguish between characters since there are so many of them, although at times I did have to stop to figure out who was talking. Overall a very enjoyable listen, and I am definitely interested in returning to Hollydale.

Cute.

This series has the cutest characters, a touch of the paranormal, two engaging main players and a very precocious little boy, who totally steals the show.
Drew Bacca as always does a grand job of being all the Hollydale inhabitants and telling the story.
No angst, very little drama, plenty of laughs. A truly joyful audio book.

Sweet Mpreg with a splash of paranormal

This is a sweet mpreg story with a splash of paranormal and a bunch of sausage jokes. It was sweet, funny, and pretty low angst, although V remained a perennial PITA (pain the you know what) until the end. I feel for Todd having to put up with her for the rest of his time with Hugo! Nice quick listen, and I absolutely loved Simon. Can a one night stand become something more? Grab this audiobook and find out.

The narration was great, especially Simon.

Sweet, adorable and heartfelt! I loved Todd & Hugo!

I really enjoyed this Hollydale story and think it's my favorite so far! I loved the steamy star, turned no angst, a slow-burn love story. I enjoyed the backward way their relationship grew and the accidental pregnancy added to the cuteness, humor and wonderful sense of family.

I loved 4-year old, Simon! He's so cute, adorably matter of fact, and just plain perfect! "Remember? You, remember"

I also loved the weird supernatural elements that I keep forgetting are a part of each unique Hollydale story. Luisa and her sisters were mostly cute and a tiny bit creepy.

As sweet as ever, I loved this addition to the Hollydale family!!

Thanks for reading!

An omega entrepeneur!

Todd has his own business. He is no nonsense omega who works hard. The day he decides to play at the big O, he finds a very sexy Alpha stranger. Hugo is one gifted alpha but a bit of a push over. He has a sweet kid and just moved into town. I like that he finds a home very easily, his kid is oh so cute! His bad side: his ex. I listened to this in one afternoon, not wanting to stop. It was rather fun to listen and the voice of Drew Bacca is a fine one adding to the mix.

Another 'meaty' Hollydale story 😊

I have really enjoyed the food themed Hollydale stories. This is no exception as it involves sausages and beer; and yes, there are lots of sausage jokes 😄
Todd, the sausage maker is looking expand his business by adding craft brewed beers. Hugo, is the newly hired brewer. However, both men hook up before knowing who the other is, leading to all sorts of complications when Hugo shows for work the next day! Oh, and the story has a few spirits, (but not the drinking kind!)
It's a fun story, very well narrated by Drew Bacca. I love when he voices Tom (he's always so funny), but he does a great job with all the characters, including kids. It's a very nice way to experience the story.
