Publisher's Summary

The pain of unrequited love. The seduction of a second chance. Can these two wolves overcome their doubts to claim each other?

Ryker’s been away from home for six long years, undergoing the rigorous training required of the next pack alpha. Now he’s back, ready to take his place as the leader of Blackwater’s wolves and to claim the man he’s always wanted to be his mate. 

Austin can’t remember a time when he wasn’t attracted to Ryker, but when Ryker left town, so did Austin’s dreams that they would, one day, be together. When fate gives them a second chance to rekindle their friendship, Austin is eager to get to know Ryker all over again. But when a spurned suitor tries to interfere in their budding relationship, can these two lovers stand together against a wolf who wants to divide them?

If you like small hometowns, second chances, a dangerously hot alpha claiming his fated mate, and male pregnancy, you won't want to miss the first audiobook in the new Blackwater Pack series. This audiobook has a guaranteed happily ever after and can be listened to as a stand-alone!

Loved it!

I really loved this story, the characters were great and the ending was very satisfying but what really wowed me was the narrator! He was PERFECT! His voice was emotional but not silly. I don’t know how he could read all the sex scenes out loud like that lol Bravo!

Friends to Lovers and Second Chances

A wonderful first look into the Blackwater Pack. When Austin goes into heat, his longtime friend, Ryker, helps him through it and they find out they're fated mates. This story is full of action, love and coming together as a pack. I can't wait for the next story from Blackwater. Narrator Nikola Muckajev does a wonderful job.

Nice start to a new series

This was a good story no matter what but I highly recommend reading it first rather than starting with book 1 in the series. Not only does it provide world building to help understand the framework for the series but knowing about the events and characters in this book make the next one more enjoyable. It’s not required to read it first but is well worth it.

Good

Good story, good plot, but the characters could had a little bit more character. So it got a bit flat and fast. Enjoyably narrated

Next one please

Great start to a new series. I enjoyed everything about it. The sexy times were hot. There isn’t a lot of angst. Just a sweet friends to lovers / second chance love story. . I really digged the narrator Nikola Muckajev. I want to hear a lot more from him.

Read before Claimed By My Protector!!!

The narrator was great. The storyline was on fleek. I wanted these two together as I read the summary. BUT read this before Claimed By My Protector or Austin and Ryker's story is spoiled for you from the get-go. Loved it!

Second chances

This was hard fought and won second chance, but not due to the two best friend main characters. Many around the couple had their own agenda and selfish evil ulterior motives! Despite all the evil, Austin and Ryker remained solid in their love for one another and I found that commendable. The narrator did a good job .

Kidnapping is My Kink

We never know for sure what events may trigger an episode for a mentally unstable person. In this story, a returning alpha claims his mate, much to the displeasure of another alpha. A kidnapping occurs, and our valiant omega has no weapons available. He uses his wits to calm the frenzied alpha. How had no one in the pack realized the depths of madness Nico had descended to? Narrator Nikola Muckajev did a good job with reading the story. When the tension got high, he became breathless. When the alpha was angry, there was a harshness to his words. He is quite engaging.

A second chance with his best friend

I really enjoyed this second chance story of two best friends who had parted for training/school and grown apart. When Ryker comes back to town six years later, he is determined to see if Austin still cares, and if they can become something more. Just the right combination of heat and feels here, and a great story. Top notch narration by Nikola Muckajev. I want more!
