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.

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!

Another really good book in the Blackwater Series!

I have really enjoyed this series of books! Each one just seems to get better and they entertain and bring the Blackwater Town and Pack to life. Mr. Kingsley's writing is very developed, the characters are well thought out and the story line's just flow so effortlessly. The narration by Mr. Muckajev added a nice enjoyment to the over all listening pleasure of this audible book. An avid reader/listener in Rock Tavern, NY.

Amazing!!!

Another awesome book by Liam Kingsley! It’s a bit longer than what I’m use to from him, but it kept me entertained all throughout.
Nikola Muckajev is a new to me narrator and I was positively surprised with what an amazing job he did narrating this book. I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook! I absolutely recommend this audiobook to everyone who likes friends to lovers, wolf shifters, and a somewhat longer timeframe in a story.

Fabulous start to the series!

I fell in love with this book enough that I listened to it twice before taking time to write a review. The narrator put so much emotion into each character. It totally brought the book to life and contributed to falling in love with both Austin and Ryker. You can’t help but root for them both. Can’t wait for more of this series.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4 or 5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Best friends to lovers...

Austin has been in love with his best friend for years. Ryker had no clue and he left for college to become the Alpha select. Great concept on a shifter world by the way. Their love brews slowly, even after a heat episode. They have problems to solve, an abusive parent, a stalker and being the new boss of a pack is not an easy task. I found it quite enjoyable.
