Publisher's Summary

Nick Ramsey has a problem. He keeps falling for straight alphas...and they keep disappointing him time and time again. He knows it's a character flaw, but when he checks out his 10-year high school reunion and gets reminded of his favorite schoolboy crush, he can't help but risk his heart all over again. 

Deacon Santos knows he's bisexual...he's just not willing to let everyone else know it, too. He's always assumed that he'd end up with a woman by default. But now 30, and with no lover in sight, he's starting to feel the pull of creating a family all his own. 

When Deacon offers Nick a place to stay after a nasty break up, they surprise one another by how quickly they fall into a strong friendship - and into bed. 

But friends with benefits only works when no one's heart is on the line - and try as he might, Nick can’t stop himself from getting attached. When Nick finds the courage to move out, will Deacon chance the bravery it takes to come out of the closet for the man who steals his breath away? 

Carter’s Crossing is a quaint little town nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, where some people go to get away, others arrive to start over, and plenty just find themselves when they’re lost or brokenhearted. This contemporary mpreg series is for adults only and is sure to leave you believing in the magic of true love and happily-ever-afters! This audiobook and every other audiobook in this stand-alone series can be listened to in any order.

Great story with great characters

I enjoy this series by this author. The characters are always people I could see myself befriending in real life. They have ups and downs, but they always find their way back to each other. I love a happy ending for sure!

Deacon & Nick

Deacon creates his own issues. He is so afraid of what others think of hon and how they would "box" him in, he stops himself from finding happiness. Nick is patient, too much. there narration pace was a little slow.

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, but not more then twice a year.
it's like a B

Can Deacon come to grips with his fear of being labeled gayl while knowing he is bisexual. Nick becomes pregnant. Will Deacon be a real father to his child?

Wonderful Story

A sweet story with little angst that is very enjoyable. I really enjoyed watching Nick and Deacon go from good friends to lovers and seeing Nick truly grow. They have quite a few obstacles to navigate for their HEA. The narrator did a great job with the story and the characters. I really like his voice for Deacon. I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy of this audiobook.

This was the bet book in the series so far!

I have to say that Mr. Bates must have had a friend, a relative or someone. Because this story was so realistic, so true to form that I had to sit back and laugh and at times wipe away the tears because I was so taken back by his depiction of Nick's life lessons and set backs. His characterization of the homeless, down and out and lost Nick and then he runs into his secret high school crush; but woops it's not a secret is it! Deacon... A straight Alpha....or is he..... maybe not... this is a story like none other that I have ever read. It was fantastic and completely enjoyable. Mr. Burrows narration only adds more to the over all enjoyment of the story telling for this listener any way. This was my favorite of the entire series and I will be adding this series to my re-read listings. An avid reader in Rock Tavern, NY.

Another good

One. Aiden did it again.

I took awhile for Deacon to come to his senses about his sexuality and his Love for another man, Nick.

Nick grows up in this story. Coming from one failed relationship to another just so he was not alone, he returns to Cater's Crossing for his class reunion and runs into his high school crush. He works on his independence and realizes he can stand on his own and take care of himself. Once he realizes that, Deacon then makes the decision he knew all along.

More Carter's Crossing Msgic

Narrator Bill Burrows has a great Alpha voice, deep, rumbly, kinda growly. Although he uses alternate intonation for the Omega, it was a bit startling to hear such a gruff voice. Logically, Omegas don't all have to have the voice of a twelve year old boy. Bill did a 5 star ***** job.

Omega Nick comes back home to Carter's Crossing for a 10 year high school reunion. He reconnects with Alpha Deacon, the alpha he had a crush on all those years ago. An odd relationship developes. Deacon wants a child. Nick would like to have a baby. They both agree that they would make excellent fathers.

Unsurprisingly, Nick becomes pregnant. Suprisingly, Deacon is reluctant to commit to a relationship with Nick. As a father and co-parent, Deacon feels Nick would be excellent. He's just not prepared to settle into a forever, "till death do us part" scenario. Nick is hurt by this attitude. Pregnancy hormones, misunderstandings, and well meaning friends conspire to keep our MCs apart.

The magic of Carter' Crossing refuses to be thwarted. Fate will find a way for these two to reach their HEA.

Value you yourself

This is the first in the series that I have listened although I have had the book for some time and I was listening as someone who obtained an advanced listener copy.
The storyline did hold my interest.
I instantly liked Nick, the omega looking for love in all the wrong places but also not willing to put up with second best.
Deacon , Nick's old crush irritated me and he did well to maintain Chris' interest and he was lucky enough to have good friends to challenge some of his idiotic behaviour.
Overall Bill Burrows did a good job but his voice was better suited to the Alphas than the omega's which felt overly camp at times with less differentiation.
I am interested in going back and finding out about the backstory of some of the characters from earlier books in the series.

Wonderful

I thought this was a wonderful book to listen to as enjoyed that Nick and Deacon reconnected. Then following Deacon’s struggle to not be labelled. The narrator brought the story to life.

The shy omega and the straight alpha...

Nick is down on his luck. When he goes back for a reunion at Carter’s Crossing he meets with his highschool crush. Deacon is straight, vehemently so. But Nick draws him in and suddenly he is not that straight. The struggle for their love is intense since Deac can’t accept who he is. I felt for Nick. He’s so sweet and nerdy but he is a tiger where it matters. I still don’t trust Deac but he came through at the end. Sweet!

Friends with Benefits

Nick has always had a huge crush on "straight" Deacon and, at the lowest point in his life, he falls into a "friends with benefits" relationship with Deacon. I enjoyed this well-written story except for one thing: the relationship is often unbalanced. Nick's feelings for Deacon are more real to me than vice versa, and Deacon's reason for failing to commit are flimsy. As a result, I loved Nick and wanted to slap Deacon. Often!

The narration by Bill Burrows is excellent and made the story better than it might have been if I had read the book instead.
