Can stand alone

I haven't read or listened to the first in the series and had no trouble listening to this one. It was a sweet and sad story with good characters. It is a fairly quick listen and I feel like it was a little rushed but overall a good listen.

Definitely worth a listen

I very much enjoyed this audiobook! The story was great and refreshing since the omega was older and the alpha a single father, which I haven encountered often in omegaverse books. I especially liked the little surprise at the end.
The narration was on point. I liked all the voices and emotions the narrator gave the characters. Definitely a relisten.

A really nice addition in this series

I enjoyed this book. The character development and the writing was as always; a perfect fit for this story by the Bates Brother's. This entire series was so well written and the character development flowed so well that at times I felt like I knew these people. Mr. Calihan's narration added another depth of enjoyment to this book. I will be adding this series of Audible books to my list of books for re-reading/listening in the future. Thank you to the Bates Brothers for once again sharing their gifted writing with us. An avid reader/listener in Rock Tavern, NY.

How to Build a Family

When dating a single parent, every decision affects more than just the two princaples. Children just seem to know when there is another person taking attention away from them.

Building on the framework of an existing family may seem easy, but there are challenges.

Alpha Dana falls for Omega (Dad) Lincoln, and although at first love seems to conquor all, reality and the stress of running their own businesses intrudes. Fortunately, Aiden and Austin Bates know how to get headstrong MCs back on track.

Narrator Jack Calihan has a growly voice that works very well for an Alpha. He also does well with a child's gleeful tone, and an Omega's smooth tenor.

Someone for everyone

Dexter and Dana thought they couldn't have a future, until they did. Great story. I think my favorite person this time was Lincoln.

Can tragedy lead to happiness?

Danna McMains lost his omega in a car crash, left to raise his son Lincoln alone. A blind date is the last thing he needs. Dex Rowley, a 40 year old omega, had cancer at 23 and radiation treatment left him unable to have children. Dex owns a successful coffee shop becoming his sole focus in life. Enter Almega, and online dating app. Can these two find happiness? The second book is a great follow up to the first book. i enjoyed the story line, character development, and narration.

Works as a stand alone book as well

I didn't hear/read the first book. The only negative thing I can say is I was a bit confused; was this a world without females at all? Regardless, it was a great story. I enjoyed the push and pull of the romance between two wounded souls. It wasn't too angsty. As a mom of three, I can honestly say, I love the idea of men having the babies! haha
Jack Calihan did a great job narrating. He has such a nice voice. He does a great job making it known what characher he is reading for.

An Alpha for Dex...

Dex deserves a chance at love, after overcoming the big C he doesn’t think he will find it. Leo with his Almega colluding with his bff might be the best match makers. Love the story. I like that the Alpha is younger but has enough baggage to also really deserve a second chance. There’s lots of chemistry and cuteness incorporated with Lincoln. Great narration, too.

Omega Dating Agency Book Two

Omega Dating Agency Book Two.

Dex Rowley is completely focused on his coffee shop, but his friend has finally convinced him to try the dating app, Almega. Dana McMains is trying to be a better father to his son, Lincoln, so he is cutting back on his workload. When Dana meets his business partner's friend who owns a dating app, Lincoln pushes him to try it out. Lincoln even suggests a first match. Even after the first attempt at a date goes badly, the two decide to give it another shot.

If you're looking for a story with second-chances, in several forms, this is the book for you.

a thoroughly enjoyable listen!

I was gifted the audio file of this book.
When I READ a book first, and then LISTEN to a book after, I can split the story from the narration and write a bit about the book and then about the narration. I have not READ this book, only listened, and so my review lines might blur a little.
This is book 2 in the Omega Dating Agency series, but you don’t need to have read or listened to book one, The Right Match, first. Characters pop up from that book with spoilers, is all. I have though, and I gave that book 3 stars for the book and 3 for the narration.
THIS book has a different narrator, Jack Calihan and he is a new-to-me narrator.
And I have a confession to make! I enjoyed the voice that Calihan gave Eric from book one far more than the voice that Johnson gave him! I mean, it was still young sounding, as was right for Eric, but not the teenager-sounding voice that Johnson gave him. It was the ONLY voice that I really noticed a difference to, as well.
Dex owns the coffee shop that Eric works in. He’s mostly okay with his lot, he wasn’t supposed to get to this age, so he plods along, knowing he can never have the family he wanted. Dana lost his Omega in a car accident and is struggling to bring up his son and run his landscaping business. His best friend makes him a profile on Leo’s app, and Leo matches Dana with Dex. Their first date, however, is a disaster. Second and third dates are much better, but will Dana run when he hears Dex’ full story? Will Dex when he hears Dana’s?
I enjoyed this one far more than book one, and don’t know if that was the narration or not, cos it might be Dex and Dana’s story I enjoyed more than Ram and Eric’s, but a much better listen all round!
Calihan’s voice is deep, and clear. All the voices are different enough for me to have no problem keeping up in multi person conversations. He gets over all of Dex’ pain that he can’t have children, and Dana’s loss of his Omega. He gets over each man’s indecision about joining the app, and then their separate battle with themselves about moving on. It’s actually quite painful listening, as they battle with their own inner demons but equally, totally amazing when they finally bury those demons and really enjoy each other.
First of Calihan’s work I have listened to. I have a couple more to listen to in due course. I like this narrator! Love finding new narrators!
4 stars for the book, and 4 for the narration.
