Publisher's Summary

Take one pregnant omega who’s all alone in the world...

After accidentally getting pregnant by his best friend and occasional hookup buddy, Owen Grant finds himself on his own...again. After being abandoned at birth and growing up in the foster system, he’s used to having to say good-bye. If he's learned one lesson in life, it's this: People don't stay. 

Add in one alpha who just won’t leave...

Austin Logan is a quirky alpha who’s accepted that he’ll never marry and have a family of his own. His focus is on being the favorite uncle to all of his brothers' kids. He’s happy with the well-maintained and structured routine of his life and doesn’t need anything more. 

Mix in one fake marriage of convenience...

Meeting Owen shakes things up in Austin’s world. He has to beg and barter with the guy to convince him to accept his help, even going so far as to sign a prenup that absolves Owen of any rights to Austin’s wealth, just to get him to agree to a fake marriage that will provide him with the medical insurance he so desperately needs for himself and his unborn child.

And remember not to fall in love with your fake groom!

What happens when your fake husband turns out to be an awesome dad to your child and doesn’t seem in any hurry to let you go? And what if you slowly find yourself falling for the stranger you married? You sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. 

This is the final book in the Lone Star Brothers series. This MM book contains mpreg and is intended for listeners 18 years and older. This 60,000-word novel is a slow-burn strangers-to-friends-to-lovers romance with all the feels you’re used to from Susi Hawke. It definitely includes an HEA and all the laughs, naughty-knotty times, and family fun you’d expect!

Good!

This was probably my favorite book out of the whole Lone Star Brothers series by Susi Hawke! It was fun to read and really good to see how all these characters come together out of love and respect for one another. Really enjoyed it! John Solo is becoming one of my favorite narrators!

Home in Austin

4.5 Stars

I know I’m becoming a bit predictable when I say this is my new favorite book from Susi. Lol. Especially since Almost every one of Susi’s books is my new favorite when I get around to reading and/or listening to it. But. This one was just really cute and I enjoyed listening to the audio version of this book.

I liked how Austin and Owen had such an easy friendship right from the start and it wasn’t just insta-love and that their friendship grew to more over time. Owen had to deal with the loss of his friend and being pregnant and stressed and not knowing where to turn and what to do next and Austin was right there helping guide him through all that. I’m glad that Owen found a family that has his back and he fit right into. I just loved these characters and their story.

John did great narrating every book in this series and I’m really sad it’s come to an end. But I look forward to whatever he’s got coming out next. He’s always a solid insta-buy Narrator for me.

Romantic and Sweet, John Solo is Wonderful

YAY Austin found love :) <3 I'm so happy it happened the way it did.

Home in Austin is far and away the most romantic of the four novels and trust me, the wait was worth it! This has been an absolutely wonderful series and a great introduction for me to the creative and heartfelt writing of Susi Hawke.

Austin and Owen are great together and I don't think anything short of what happened would have finally coaxed Austin into a relationship. It is so cute to watch his walls coming down, and when Owen discovers all his OCD organization, it is laugh-out-loud funny. There are a bunch of super sweet and funny moments in Home in Austin and, aside from the absolutely horrid descriptions of how they discover baby J has a milk allergy *gag*, this one had me smiling from beginning to end.

Again, I'm going to stress how wonderful this series is in audio. John Solo blew me away with the variety of the voices he chooses for these characters. This is an immense cast and all these guys cross back and forth within each other's stories. Mr. Solo does an incredible job and he sticks consistently to the different voices throughout all four novels.

The Lone Star Brother is a very special series and I highly recommend enjoying it in audio.

A Winner!

This book closes out the series perfectly. I loved the slow burn romance between Owen and Austin. They start out as a convenience. A way to help each other out. They develop into a family and fit together so well. They find in each other what they didn't even know they were looking for.
John Solo does an amazing job of giving voice to this love story. I was enthralled with his narration and thoroughly enjoyed this audibook.

Great audio and fun story!

I love this series from Susi Hawke, and Austin has been a bit of an enigma throughout. As for the story itself, it is sweet and funny and entertaining as we finally see the last single brother standing, alpha Austin, meet his match in pregnant omega Owen. I do love a good fake relationship/marriage story, and this one especially as the relationship develops slowly and organically through genuine friendship before they ever take things further. This one has a lot of heart and humor, some delicious pining, plenty of steamy knotty fun, and more of the characters we love from the first three books. I am sad to see this series end!

John Solo is the perfect narrator for Susi's work, and Home in Austin is undeniably another hit for him as well. He delivers a well-paced, animated, nuanced performance with lots of feeling and clear differences in character voices, tone, and accent. He brings the story and characters to life with ease and sounds like he is having fun doing it. Definitely recommend!

Fantastic combination between story and narration!

5 Stars!

Home in Austin is book 4 in the Lone Star Brothers series. It can be listened to as a standalone, which is what I did, but fair warning, you'll probably want to learn more about Austin's brothers as soon as you're done with this one.

This book was a delight to listen to, not only did John Solo did a fantastic job with all the characters voices, and boy, if there weren't a lot of those, LOL, but he gave them all very discernable tones that gave a very clear idea of their personalities and complimented the storyline nicely.

This was a very entertaining and sweet slow-burn romance, the main characters, Austin and Owen were totally adorbs and I had so much fun with some of the predicaments they (mostly Austin) found themselves in while taking care of their baby. Definitely an audiobook you don't want to miss out on!

My favorite audiobook of the series

This has been a great series, and I am fond of all the characters. I feel that this book where Austin, the final Logan brother, unexpectedly finds love, just pulls everything together. Omega Owen has always been alone and lonely, with only his best friend to count on. Now that he finds himself pregnant with nowhere to turn, he literally runs into Austin. That's when Austin, who has never felt much like an alpha, suddenly becomes the protective and dependable hero to Owen. And even more sweetly surprising, Austin's OCD and germaphobe tendencies slowly begin to ease just a bit. These men turn a marriage of convenience into a beautiful friendship with appealing possibilities. I absolutely love their story! I also appreciate the interaction they share with all the other brothers and their mates, who are there to welcome Owen into the family he never expected to find.
This sweet, funny, and emotional story is enhanced by a performance that is just right. With the large cast of characters, I really appreciate how the narrator is able to make me aware of just who is speaking almost every time. I have previously called some of the accents over the top, but I think I've changed my mind. He is able to clearly define the characters and fill their voices with the humor and concern the author's writing calls for. I have zero complaints or criticisms about this story, and I know I'll be enjoying the entire series again soon. Wonderful!

What a family

I already loved this family so much, this just made them even better. I really adore Owen and Austin as a pair. Austin is such a sweet Alpha and I love how he takes in this special man at a time when he needs someone the most. Owen is so amazing and strong and he is thrust into a situation that leaves him unmoored in life. The two of them are an adorable couple and find themselves in an interesting position that turns into way more than they expect. The family converges and makes Owen feel like one of them in all the ways that matter. I love the support and the meddling that ensues to bring them together. I thought the narrator did an amazing job with these guys and the world that they live in.

Cute Omega/Alpha story

So, I was in the mood for mpreg without the shifter part, and this sounded really cute and you know what?  It was.  Let me start off with the narration.  This is the first time I have listened to John Solo and I was impressed.  In my mind though I wasn't expecting Austin to sound like that, but I quickly adjusted it in my head.  I must say that I was thoroughly impressed with how well he handled all the different voices that you have in this book.  I enjoyed listening to him so much that I went ahead and bought book one and will continue to buy the entire series in audio.

Now the story.  I have not read books one through three in this series, and I always worry that if I have yet to read them I might be lost.  But I can tell you that is not the case at all.  This is very much a standalone, yes previous MCs make appearances in this, but I never felt like I was missing out on something.  Though when I finished this one I couldn't wait to hear the rest.

Austin is, well, different.  But not in a bad way.  He kind of reminds me of my youngest, who is a bit OCD and likes things done his way.  Austin is a germaphobe and likes things to be in a certain order.  He is the man who carries around hand sanitizer everywhere he goes.  He is content being the fun uncle to his brothers kids.   Yet when fate throws him an omega in need, he just can't turn him away.

Owen is grieving the loss of his friend who is also his unborn child's father.  Not sure what to do, he finds himself homeless and ends up accepting Austins help by agreeing to be "fake" husbands so he can have insurance for him and his baby.  I love this trope because I love watching them fall in love with their husbands.  And that is exactly what happens here.

I really enjoyed their journey and watching them fall in love with each other.  This is a slow burn with hilarious scenes and even funnier brothers.  I do recommend this if you are looking for a sweet alpha/omega mpreg.  Very low in angst with a very happy ever after, and a BIG family you can't help but love.

Excellent end to a great series!

I loved listening to Austin get his HEA. Owen was such a dear, with a bit of sass :). I loved how all the family rallied around Owen, folding him into the family so seamlessly.
The entire series has been wonderful, and while I'm a little sad to see it end, it has end just as well as it started!

As usual, John Solo brings all the characters to life - his performance was entertaining, fun and heartwarming. One of the best things about this audio story is that we get to revisit all the other couples, especially Houston - my favourite.
Excellent story and performance :)

Bringing It Home

I loved this fourth and final book in this funny, sweet, MPreg series by Susi Hawke. Another winner by one of my favourite new authors of 2018. John Solo does an excellent job, as always, of giving these Lonestar Brothers a voice and bringing the story to life.
When the only way to help out a pregnant omega whose alpha best friend with benefits has died abroad fighting for the military turns out to be marrying him, alpha Austin Logan steps up to the plate. The fourth Logan brother who swore he'd be a permanent bachelor finds himself taking on not only an orphan omega, but also his unborn child when said omega turns up at the Foundation seeking help. I loved getting to see the sweet, funny, caring side of the normally serious brother.
Owen Grant is pregnant by his best friend who has been killed in action and the military are not able to give him any survivors benefits for his unborn child as they weren't married. When he turns to the foundation run by Beau and Austin, they are bound by similar rules, so there's nothing that they can do to help the homeless omega in distress who is only moments away from having to live out of his car.
Austin feels for the omega and offers to feed him and gives him a room for the night, but trying to get insurance coverage drives him to the brink of insanity. Austin offers Owen the protection of a fake marriage in order to get around the rules preventing him from getting proper medical care. As the two become friends and Austin's family interferes with Houston and the other omegas (Kyle, Gideon and Lukas) welcoming unreservedly into their midst, Owen learns what it truly means to become part of a loving family. Will the fake marriage become maybe not so fake? Will Josh's parents try to take away Owen's unborn child when they track down the omega carrying their unborn grandson? I recommend you read/listen along for yourself and find out if it's HEA or Family Feud.
While this story can stand alone, I think you can appreciate the characters better if you've already read/listened to the previous three books.

Fitting last book

This is the last book in this series, read by the fabulous John Solo who’s narration brings these brothers and their families to life is a fitting end to it.
I loved this series reading it my self or listening my to it although once you hear John’s voice for the guys, you’ll hear him when your reading alone which I’m sure is a huge testament of his skill. Highly recommend this enjoyable series.

An amazing end to a highly enjoyable series

I have loved every book so far in this series from Susi Hawke and Home in Austin lives up to expectations. We have a continued fun, family feel and a wonderful romance with Austin finally getting his story after seeing his brothers getting their HEA.
We meet Owen who has been left with a pregnancy and no home after his best friend dies in combat. He seeks refuge at the shelter that the Lone Star Brothers run for families of service men/women. Austin is the man he runs into and the alpha wants to do anything he can to help, including offer a marriage of convenience to ensure that Owen's pregnancy, birth and newborn will have insured care. The two men bring out new sides to each other and grow closer with the developing pregnancy.
As always the family pulls together and it's one of my favourite things about this series. They always have fun but are there offering support in any way for whatever is needed. Both MC's are endearing and it's lovely to listen to their shyness and developing attraction.
John, yet again, brings the characters to life and allows you to fall fully into the story line as we go through events with each character. Now that we've had stories for all the brothers, there's a lot of different voices and it's great hearing them all. No idea how he tracks them all!!
A definite must read/listen, especially if you've already consumed the previous books in this series. Though it's possible to read as a stand alone, I recommend reading in order as the ever growing family is a big part in each book.
