Publisher's Summary

JACK

My life ended when I was 16. Not literally - I’m no ghost, I just feel like one. It's a byproduct of losing your pack to a plague that skips you by like you’re not worth the effort. Chose all the good ones and you’re what was left behind. Survivor’s guilt, people call it. I just call it like I see it.

I do a decent job of going through the motions. I’ve got a good reputation as an alpha, and everyone loves to joke about the only vegan alpha in North America. Some days even I’m convinced that this is it. As good as it gets.

Then Dylan Kapernit walks into my shop and blows that theory to hell. 

It's like everything was gray and now there’s technicolor. He pops, no matter what corner he tries to hide in. Like my eye can’t help but be drawn to him, just to make sure he’s alright. 

There’s something about this widowed father that brings my protective alpha instincts surging to the surface. In ways I’ve forgotten how to handle.

So of course my efforts to make things better only make it all worse. Put Dylan, his whole family in danger. For a second, I forgot about the curse of being me.

But I won’t forget again. And I’ll do whatever it takes to make it right.

To make sure nothing ever threatens the man I love again. Even once I’m gone.

DYLAN

After my mate died, I was sure I would never love again. But I’ve got a track record of being wrong about everything.

I thought Micah and I would grow old together. That one stupid mistake couldn’t destroy my whole world. That I could be enough for my daughter, that I could make up for my past sins. I thought I was doing okay.

I don’t know what I believe in anymore, but I know its not myself. Which is why I can’t tell if Jack Hickam is my redemption or my punishment.

One moment he’s everything I thought I’d never have again, and the next he’s my new greatest mistake, bringing unimaginable danger to my door. My daughter’s door.

Only now it seems I was wrong again, that I turned my back on the one man who just wanted to have it. I don’t know if I’m too late to fix things. I always have been before.

All I know is I still have to try.

This 50,000 word novel about vegan alphas, mpreg, and life after loss comes complete with a HEA no one’s immune to - as long as they’re over 18!

A lot of angst

I received this audiobook at no-cost from Audiobookworm Promotions. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

I have only listened to one other Preston Walker book prior to this so to say I am not an expert would be correct. This book had a lot of drama and a lot of angst within this book. The two main characters are completely opposite. One is straight laced and conservative and the other is all tatted up and quite. One they first meet a lie occurred. It was not the biggest however it was indicative of a major one to happen.

As the story progressed I like the relationship that happened with Jack and Dylan. The only issue that I had was the story seemed a bit rushed in come parts. It felt as though something happened only two days prior but in reality it occurred over months. I do not think the transitions where clear enough for me. The ending could have been cleaned up as well. It just seemed as though after the final big scene in the book everything was peachy keen. There was not a real resolution that occurred.

Jack Calihan is someone who I have never listened to narrate before. I do not know how I feel about his voice. His voice did not distract from the characters and it did not add to it as well. I would have to listen to something else that he has narrated to compare to see it his voice is neutral or if it is soothing.

Very good!

This writing duo is really growing on me! I thought they did an excellent job with this book! The characters were rich and interesting and the plot rocked along without any major plotholes... this narrator was excellent and did a really nice job bringing these guys to life!

Strong Narrator, decent story

I read an Mpreg several years ago and wasn’t very impressed. The quality of the writing and the general premise weren’t that good. Several reviewers and readers whom I respect suggested I try again, so I did with this audiobook.

The premise for this book had far more going for it. A man with a broken heart who feels responsible for the death of his husband and mate. Another man who lost his entire family at a young age and has only a few left and they’ve bonded together, opening a tattoo shop. The reason for Dylan, the widower coming into the tattoo shop is sweet and sad, his reaction to Jack is cute. Dylan has a single daughter and belongs to a massive pack. Because of the death of his mate, his bond to them is very strong.

Jack has a big secret he’s hiding from Dylan and although it makes for a good story, it was a bit over-the-top. It was something that wound up being super simple to resolve but he put it off for most of the book. When he does finally act – which I wholly approved of – things went into the realm of even more over-the-top. I don’t want to go into details to ruin the surprise but be prepared to possibly question the realism even more than having wolf shifters.

The reason for the Mpreg part of the story also irked. But that is completely on me and my sensibilities. I’m sure many readers will find it sweet. To be clear, the Mpreg is not why I’ve given the book a lower score. It’s the requirement of suspension of disbelief and the irresponsibility of Jack that really niggled at me and it they were crucial points in the book.

The book was well-written, so I have no issues with that. Dylan’s daughter Josie was adorable, if a little mature. The narration was very good in the book. Jack Calihan is a new-to-me narrator and I won’t hesitate to pick up another book narrated by him.

Great listen!

Dylan’s husband passed away a couple of years ago and he has now decided it is time to try and move on. He heads to a tattoo parlour to have his wedding band removed from his left hand and transferred to the right. The tattoo artist is Jack, an Alpha, who lost his pack to disease a few years ago. Dylan and Jack fall in instalust and form an instant strong connection. When Dylan finds out how Jack’s family died he pushes him away, but still can’t get him out of his mind. It was a sweet story with a good storyline.

Jack Calihan was a fabulous narrator for this book. It was the first time I’ve listened to anything narrated by him, but I will be seeking him out in the future. He had great voices for both roles.

I received an arc of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest and unbiased review

Really liked this one!

4 Stars

This is the first book by these two authors that I've listened to and I'm pretty sure it won't be the last. While there were moments in which I wanted to slap some sense into both MCs (mostly Dylan, if I'm being honest), I liked the storyline and I found it entertaining and interesting.

I really enjoyed Jack Calihan's narration, he had distinct voices for all the characters and while I felt Jack's (the MC) tone was a bit too slow sometimes, it worked for him and he ended up being my favorite. I think the narrator did a fantastic job with the story and I'm sure this isn't the last time I'll be listening to it or any other books narrated by him.

Jack Calihan has the best voice for an Alpha wolf

Dylan lost his husband and son a couple of years ago. Not wanting to move on but realizing it’s time. He decides to have his tattooed ring removed which is where he meets Jack. A gorgeous tattoo artist and Alpha wolf. Their tentative courtship is filled with missteps and secrets that can tear them apart. When Jack’s secret is revealed and Dylan pushes him away he doesn’t think he will ever get him back. Jack has to make a life changing decision that puts his and Dylan’s relationship in the background.

I liked how Dylan, even though he is an Omega, was very strong and took care of himself and his daughter. Jack was what I see as a the typical Alpha. Tough, sure of himself, and arrogant. I liked how Dylan shaved off Jack’s rough edges and how Jack brought Dylan back to life.

I liked the story, lots of angst, almost insta-love, and an Alpha and Omega that were delightful.

From Skeptic to Fan

I'll admit, when I started this, I was pretty convinced I wouldn't like it. The first chapter or so feels a little slow, but once Jack meets Dylan, all bets are off. Pretty much immediately after that is where the story really picks up in both writing style and rhythm.

The chemistry of these two is some of the best I've seen in a while, and the narrator is able to balance their personalities wonderfully.

This is the first book I've read/listened to from either of these authors, and I have a feeling it won't be my last!

A Family

An endearing book the writing was good. The plot was entertaining and it was steady throughout the book. I found the story and characters charming. The characters were developed and thought out. Jack is an Alpha and Dylan is an Omega and they are the MC’s of this book. This narration didn’t work for me it needed to be more expressive and have stronger ups and downs. I can recommend this book a good read and listen. I voluntarily read an advance copy of this book for an honest review.
