Publisher's Summary

An unexpected reunion offers an alpha and omega a second chance....

Ten years ago, omega Alex Cary's fiancé broke his heart and left him with nothing. He's got a good career as a home chef, but he's lost his ability to trust.

Alpha Sol Delaney loved Alex more than oxygen, but he was dependent on his father's money. When his father demanded he break things off with the foster kid from the Bronx, Sol had no choice.  

Ten years later, a freshly divorced Sol has returned to New York with his young son in tow. He wants Alex back, but it's not that easy: Sol's ex-husband and his mother-in-law are trying to drag Sol back, and there's no length to which they won't go.

This intense omegaverse romance is overflowing with passion, drama, and of course, clothes-ripping sex. Hot and descriptive bedroom action makes this gay paranormal Mpreg romance suitable for adults only!

This is not your typical love story by Mr. Bates!

This is not your typical loving, seasoned, sit by your fire side to read love story by Mr. Bates. It was a complete out of the box experience for this reader. It is full of ruff, tuff, angst, kidnapping, in fighting between family members, tuff love, grit, etc. etc. It took me two different times reading this book before I was able to finish it, Fortunately I received the Audible version and it did put several questions I had in perspective and I got some answers to others. Mr. Bates is one of only a few Auto buy Authors for this reader and this has taken me awhile to write my reviews of the book and this audible version. Not because I did not want to, but because I wanted to do honest reviews. I am looking forward to the next book in this series. An avid reader in Rock Tavern, NY.

Amazing audiobook!

I absolutely love this book! I have red it multiple times already and still can’t get enough. Even though Sol is kind of an idiot most of the book, I do believe that it makes it all the more interesting since we get to see him change. The narration is really great too. The narrator gave the characters fitting voices, and his intonation was on point too.

The Family We Make An Mpreg Romance (Hellion Club

Once upon a time Alpha Sol was engaged to omega Alex. Unfortunately back then Sol's entire monetary existence was reliant on his father. So he was told to break his engagement to the omega because his father had a much better omega in mind. Ten years later, Sol is alone with only his son. He is reunited with his omega, Alex. But ten years is a long time and Alex is very tentative not wanting to be hurt once again. But Alex's ex and his ex's mother are trying to get him back. Will Sol and Alex be able to reunite in their happily ever after? Blayke Moresby is a great narrator whose voice breathes life into the characters. Fantastic audio and story.

Who What Were

Who What Where are All answered in this audio by Aiden Bates. Private Chiefs, business lawyers, bar owners and mob connections. This audio has it All. Much more is included in this Love story. Blayke Moresby did an excellent job with all the different people and accents.

Great story, well narration

I forgot how much I liked this story. It was well narrated, and there was really no point when you didn’t know what/who you were listening to in the story.

A second chance at love

This book is full of action and drama, lots and lots of drama, and even some sadness so have a tissue handy. When a chance meeting reunion changed Alex and Sol's entire lives, flipped them upside down and inside out and somehow they still ended up with their HEA. And this is only book 1, I wonder what book 2 has in store. Narrator Blayke Moresby does a fantastic job bringing the characters to life.

Love This!!!!

The Family We Make is the first book in the Hellion Club series by Aiden Bates. This is an m/m romance with an mpreg element. It is also a second chance romance with jealous, junkie exes, horrible grandparents, and adorable children. There is a great dose of drama, danger and angst. There is also humor, forgiveness, heat and love. Alex and Sol are great characters and I love them together... those outside forces needed to get lost. ☆Narration by Blayke Moresby was well done. The voicework and recording was smooth and clear.

idk

I dont know if its both the narration and or the story itself, but baby it's not good. There are minor contradictions within the writing. I don't why so many people race about this book! I will not continue with the rest of the series

Sol was such a weak alpha and character

Sol's dad' Grr... Sol"s attitude, arrogance, and manipulations!!! Seeing red. I tried to like him, but he was weak and self centered. So many entitled rich alpha holes made me wretch! Sol was a major disappointment when he was younger doing daddy's bidding, and now his dad is still telling him what to do and interfering in his life. Sol had no integrity and couldn't stand up for himself until it's too late. The narrator was good. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this story and am giving an honest review.

Wonderful listen!!

I really liked this book. It is well written, and the narrator does a fantastic job. The characters have to fight for their HEA, but with their chosen family they get there.

Second chances...

Sol Delaney never forgot his omega. Being forced to leave Alex behind all those years ago, he’s now divorced and with a lovely son. This is his second chance. I liked that it didn’t happen overnight... Alex is an omega that has come out of the ashes successfully but his past catches up to him. I enjoyed all the characters, bad, mean, sweet, loyal and super cute kids. Awesome story with an equally awesome narrator.

You can't live through your children

I was given this audiobook as an advanced listener copy. I enjoyed this listen as it had some of my favourite tropes; long lost lovers, family pressure and expectations and a criminal element. As well as the non-shifter alpha/ omega mpreg set up. Although from opposite ends of the social scales neither Alex or Sol have had what could be called ' normal upbringing'. Which means like for all of us that we don't always act in our own best interests as we are either always trying to please others or can be too afraid to ask or take what we need. It also means we cannot always enjoy the good moments as we are waiting for sword of Damocles to drop. This is a key driver in the story and gives power to the machinations of others. However, there were some loveable supportive characters to help Alex and Sol through and some true villains you could boo at too. I loved Buddy. Also don't forget the cute kids I am new to Blake Moresby and would willingly listen to him again, he is able to run the gamut of emotions and make the characters discrete. I felt all sort of emotions from joy, sympathy, amusement, anger, frustration, fear and excitement. This is where a good tale should take you; so that you can be in the moment. Overall I want to give the book a 4.5. Why drop .5 of a point.? I just felt the storyline had a couple of over convoluted elements. However, saying this; this is a series I want to continue with.

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

Enjoyable to listen to

This is a book I have owned since it first came out but only started reading once I had the audiobook too. I wish I hadn't waited and I will definitely be reading/listening to more of the series. Once again, as with other Aiden Bates books, I had immediate rapport with omega (Alex) and less liking for alpha (Sol). Sol now has his own money but, as a younger man, needed his father's financial support. He broke off his engagement to Alex and married his father's choice, ending up with not just an obnoxious father but also a foul mother in law (not to mention a husband with substance addiction). So I suppose it is not surprising he is a bit churlish! Anyway, I found the book to be well-crafted with all the threads neatly tied together. There is slightly more angst than in many of this author's other books, but it works here. Blayke Moresby is a new to me narrator. I enjoyed his style very much and loved his many different character voices. He made Carsten even more adorable.
