Publisher's Summary

Warrior in the ring. Submissive in the bedroom. A dark threat against a promising future...and a growing new life.

He trains; he fights. MMA fighter Eric lives for each match because now there’s nothing else to live for. Though he once yearned for the steady, forever kind of love - though he craved domination - he was betrayed. Walking away from the man he would have married, Eric didn’t look back. And now his future is just as empty as his past.

The day Samuel was fired for wanting to marry the love of his life wasn’t his blackest moment - his blackest moment was the night before when Eric left him without a word. But Samuel emerged stronger and learned that to survive heartbreak he had to be true to himself. He now craves someone to share his dark desires with - a dominating self Eric never knew.

Where there are secrets, there can never be true love.

When a new client walks into Samuel’s place, he’s shocked to see that the man booking his services as a dom is Eric. Is this a cruel joke, or are they fated to be together? The only way to find out is to follow this thing to the end. Even if that means wading through blackmail, deceit, and a shocking discovery that changes their lives forever. They have no choice but to defeat their enemies and make their love work.

Eric is carrying a baby, and Samuel refuses to give them up without fighting the match of their lives.

Fighting for Love is a steamy contemporary mpreg/mm romance for listeners who love surprise pregnancy, bdsm, themes of betrayal and blackmail, and pause-resisting action. Download now for a HEA stand-alone that delivers on intrigue, emotions, and heat.

second chances

I really wanted to like this book. I liked parts of the story idea but it just wasn't realistic, even in mpreg. I can see how one might have to hide or suppress a part of themselves for one reason or another. But when Eric just leaves Samuel, the man he was going to marry, because of an incriminating text without even a discussion about said text and then they are reunited after 2 years and all is suddenly forgiven. I think what really got me was Eric still wanted to fight even after he found out he was pregnant and somehow he didn't think Samuel would find 6 pregnancy tests in the bathroom trash. Bathroom trash cans aren't that big. Narrator Jamie Garrett does a wonderful job and I look forward to listening to him again.

It had potential

and I really wanted to like it more but tough I forgive a lot for romance especially for Mpreg, it was a little too out there some of the scenarios were just not there and I do love a good second chance and really love nontraditional Alpha/omega roles with a little more work this one could have been really good. It was a sweet listen and Garrett does a decent job with it.

Really Good...

Misunderstandings, hurts and forgiveness, a hot and passionate dominate Alpha, and strong and sexy omega... together we get steamy scenes with a taste of kink.  Sweet moments and some helpings of humor and we get a great book that captures your attention and has you rooting for the main characters, Eric and Samuel. A really good second chance romance with a kinky tilt. Narrated by Jamie Garrett. Clear and smooth recording and voicework. Heightened the enjoyment of the story.

Fantastic!

I really enjoyed this audiobook and the characters of Sam and Eric. Eric was an interesting mix of strength and softness, as an MMA fighter who was also an Omega. There were a couple of small things that felt like loose ends, things not fully explained. For example, what was the deal with the text messages that Sam got on two separate occasions that hurt the relationship. Were they just random wrong numbers? Despite that question that pulled me from the story a little, as I kept waiting for it to have something to do with Terrence or some other side plot, I loved the relationship and especially how patient and supportive Sam was of Eric. I loved the narration. The narrator has a very nice voice, and his delivery was smooth and well-paced.

GOOD READ!

I enjoyed it! The narration is great and will keep you entertained. The author did a great job with the character builds and plot. This was my first book by these authors but definitely will not be my last. I look forward to reading more books by them.

1.5, reluctantly rounded up

You know, what I think amazes me most about this book is that it had two authors. Two people were involved in the writing of this travesty and neither one called a halt to it. It's a disaster in so many ways. For one, even listening to the audio version, I caught several editing mistakes. The most common (and therefore the one that annoyed me most) was how it kept saying one character's house was color-coded, but they meant color coordinated. As this was meant to be an endearing trait it was brought up several times and it was wrong every time. But there were also just other random mistakes. At one point someone left the bathroom to go to the bathroom. (He went to the bedroom). But mostly I hated that the whole alpha/omega trope wasn't situated in any sort of world. I'm plenty familiar with the Omegaverse. I'm not new to m-preg stories. But you can't just drop alpha and omega characters into an undefined world. I have no idea if this was common among all people, some people, or a secret. I have no idea if these were human people or shifters of some sort (though I assume not since it wasn't mentioned). Why were some alphas and some omegas? What makes an alpha or omega? Are there betas somewhere? How, if at all, do the dominant and submissive traits come into play? Because the book infers that the words aren't interchangeable, some alphas are dominant, but not all omegas are subservient, and visa versa. I think. I'm really not sure and that's my point. None of this is defined or explained in any way. What's more, the dominant character got into being a dom when he lost his job and someone else took him in and showed him the ropes. It's reiterated that it's just a job. So, even being a dom isn't presented as a racial trait. So, what makes him an alpha if not his dominance? Further, there is 100% no reason both characters needed to be male for this plot to work (as poorly as it worked, but you get my point). I love gay romance. So, I'm not saying the authors needed a reason to write the characters as gay. But the m-preg felt so forced and out of place, so poorly explained (not at all explained) that I feel like it just should have been left out. The sex was abortive and uninterestingly written (how do you make BDSM sex vanilla and boring?) that even it couldn't redeem it. At least if one had been female one aspect of the pregnancy plot would have made a modicum of sense and one fewer facet would be a basket case. Lastly (and this is a big spoiler), the whole plot hinges on my number-one most hated trope, the "Oops it all a misunderstanding that could have been avoided with a single conversation" trope. I hate this and it was apparent that this was going to be the case from chapter one and it was dispelled literally in a single partial paragraph. They had been together for years, were engaged to be married and one ghosted on the other based on a text from an unknown person. A text they later decided was a wrong number. It's beyond ridiculous and predictable to boot. Why didn't they just have the conversation two years ago? About the only positive thing I can say is that the narrator did a fine job. Note: I received an Audble code for this book. I chose to listen and review it.

A delightful M/Preg story

One must not jump to conclusions. One should ask questions. Dear me if only Eric had done that 2 years ago. This is a second chance romance where Samuel and Eric get a chance to resolve some trust issues and it all happens because of some of the strangest of events. Samuel maybe an alpha and a Dom but he’s not over bearing. Eric maybe an Omega and a sub but that’s not the front the world sees. Overall an enjoyable listen. And Jamie did a great job on narrating the story.

Fixing misunderstandings

Fighting For Love, was a great story. Eric and Samuel were going to get married, but a misunderstanding drove them apart. Eric is a prize winning MMA fighter. In that world, he must hide the fact that he is an omega. Between training and fighting in matches, Eric leads a very stressful life. Eric makes an appointment with a Dom, hoping it will help alleviate some of the stress. Samuel turns out to be the Dom. After the first session, they continue to talk and are able to work things out. Aiden and Austin do a wonderful job reuniting Eric and Samuel. The resolution of their problems was well done. Each gains a greater understanding of the other. They learn to appreciate and support each other. Jamie Garrett , was a great narrator. Listen to Fighting For Love and enjoy. It will be well worth your time.

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
