Publisher's Summary

A DJ becomes a hero. A doctor weathers a family tragedy. And a thin wall between them....

Radio DJ Derek Brown grew up in foster care. He’s built a decent life for himself, but when he’s called on to save a terrified young girl from traffickers he doesn’t hesitate to step in, even at the risk of his own life. The young rising star has become an overnight hero. 

Alpha Alex Brennan is a trauma surgeon at Silver Oak Medical Center. When he checks on the patient he operated on the day before, he’s startled to find the “hero DJ” is his hated next-door neighbor. 

Despite their shared animosity, Alex can’t ignore Derek’s heroism. When the rescued girl takes shelter with Derek to recover, Alex finds himself drawn to the young omega even further. Working with Derek and his guest dredges up old family tragedies for Alex, and not everyone in Alex’s family is thrilled about the new people in Alex’s life. 

Can Alex and Derek forge their own path through family tragedy, and build a new and healthy family together? Or will their pasts keep them apart forever? 

Enemies become lovers in this highly erotic gay mpreg tale. This 106,000-word audiobook is brimming with explicit man-on-man action, and is intended for adults only.

Great story, Terrible naration.



I have really enjoyed this series and in many ways I think this is the strongest, most dynamic story yet. Both protagonists are endearingly flawed. Both have serious baggage, and it's nice to read a story that represents real relationships and miscommunication so well.

The narration however... Slow, monotone, inflectionless, emotionless... I had to crank the speed up to 1.25 to make it almost sound like real speech patterns. I only stuck with it because I knew the story would be worth it. I know I will want to re-listen to this series, and I'll have to endure this narrator again, but thank heavens this is the only book he turned into a reading of the dictionary.

A good story but struggled with narration

I've enjoyed reading the Silver Oak series and thought I'd like it via audio but I found it quite hard to connect with the story and characters because of the narration from John. For me it was quite stop/start and didn't help with the flow.
I realised how much I got frustrated with the alpha character in this story as well, having the story told to me gave me a new appreciation for Aiden's writing and how much there is going on in his books. There's depth to his characters and redeeming qualities that you just have to wait on as it is very worth while to make it to the end.
I'd recommend trying the sample before purchase.

Nice read

I liked this story from Aiden Bates a lot! It had interesting main characters and a well thought out plot...with that said, I was not crazy about this nararator...his speech was extremely slow and over exaggerated. I think he does have potential and would be open to listening to another book in the future with his narration.

Good story.

This is a good in the Silver Oak Medical Series. I like Derek and Alex's story. Even though I did want to shake Alex a few when he was be a ass. Now John Hong did an okay job for me. It could have been better but I still was ok to listen to it.

Good story, narration not for me

The Silver Oak Series is a good series and the books are enjoyable. I really like the story of Derek but Alex was not always a likable character. This is definitely not a fluffy feel good read but that just makes it more interesting. These two MCs have several hurdles to get through and most of them come from withing. The narration on this one definitely wasn't for me. I ended up reading the book instead because I couldn't make it through listening to it.

A Fantastic Book

This is the sixth book in Silver Oak Medical Center Series. What an captivating book the writing was terrific. The plot was entertaining and it was steady throughout the book. I found the story and characters wonderful. The characters were well developed and thought out. Derek is an Omega and Alex is an Alpha and they are the MC’s of this book. There was humor, bad guys, a hero, 2 destroyed cars, family issues, medical recovery, police and so much more in this book.

Here is a quote from the book, “Look, man. I don’t know what beef you’ve got with me, but we have a traumatized girl staying here. She calls you The Shouting man. She’s not in a place right now where The Shouting Man is a good thing, okay?” Alex grimaced. “I don’t want to be the shouting man.” He swallowed, hard.” There is more but you will need to read the book which I can recommend as a good read. The narration wasn’t that good, however. Although it wasn’t monotone which is a positive it was stilting in the flow. The different characters didn’t have distinct voice. The story itself is great unfortunately the narration doesn’t help it. I voluntarily read an advance copy of this book for an honest review.
