Publisher's Summary

Skylar

There are two things in this world I know to be true: I have terrible taste in men, and all alphas are jerks. Also, there tends to be a lot of overlap there.

You’d think my own pack kicking me out would’ve been a clue to stay away from alphas. Omegas are rare. We’re smaller, weaker, can’t usually get pregnant...all valid reasons for disowning your own family, right? Like I said. Jerks.

But it only took one night for stupidly handsome Troy Miyu to make me forget all the reasons I should’ve known better. One night to start falling for him, to realize it wasn’t just amazing chemistry we shared, but a true mate bond.

One night for him to leave me pregnant and alone. To make me swear off ever trusting an alpha again. Let alone him.

But now he’s back, and resisting my every attempt to keep him away from me - and the daughter I’m trying to hide. Alphas took my pack from me once, I’m not going to let one take my child, too. Even if he’s saying the words I would’ve given anything to hear once upon a time...that fairy tale’s over. It’s not about what I want anymore, its about what’s best for my daughter.

Then she starts showing signs of being an alpha herself. Needing things only her alpha father can give her. 

And I have to wonder...is it really her I’m trying to protect here?

Troy

All my life, my parents have criticized me for not being responsible enough. I always told myself they’re wrong...but its a little harder to deny when coming from the man I left behind.

I wish I knew why I freaked out and ran years ago. Most people go their whole lives without finding their true mate. It should have been a blessing. But I was young and immature. So obsessed with being my own man, with refusing to let other people define me. Label me.

Even when all they wanted to label me was lover. Mate. Partner.

Now I’m trying my best to fix my greatest mistake, but he’s as stubborn as I am. And with good reason. I know I hurt him. I’d give anything to take it back.

But all I can do is move forward, and this time, I’m not going anywhere unless he’s coming with me.

This 50,000 word novel about true mates, mpreg, and second chances has a bumpy road on the way to that HEA, but if you’re eighteen years of age and older, come along for the ride!

Enjoyable

I love shifter stories, and this story I enjoyed. The narration/narrator did a good job. The only little complaint I have, is, periodically in the narration I had a little trouble distinguishing the voices of the two main characters. I look forward in the future to listen to other stories by the author, and hope there will be a book two of this one!🤗

Finding Home

This was really good. There were lots of tears and lots of laughs. Skylar has been through so much in his life for someone so young. I can’t even imagine all of that, he finally finds a home place to belong and a family to support him. Troy is a good Alpha but he has a lot to learn about life. When he finally pulls his head out and gets his act together he has a whole lot to make up for. When they finally manage to get everything worked out they have lots of chemistry and a great connection. I love watching them grow closer and learn all about each other. I like how the narrator brings them all to life in this story.

A Good Book

What a sensational book the writing was good. The plot was entertaining and it was steady throughout the book. I found the story and characters captivating. The characters were developed and thought out. Skylar and Troy are the MC’s of this book. The narration was by Kip Henderson who is a new narrator to me. Although the narrators voice didn’t work for me. He did a good job narrating he wasn’t monotone, and the flow of his narration was good. So overall it was well done. I voluntarily read an advance copy of this book for an honest review.

Really good start to a new series

Kip Henderson did a great job narrating this one. I really enjoyed this book. I couldn't stand Troy at first for what he did to Skylar, yes I sort of understand why but that doesn't mean I liked it. When they finally got back together, I thought that Skylar should have made Troy grovel a little more :) I hated the way Omega's, rare though they are, were treated. I have read some pretty nasty way they are treated in some books, but this was just beyond horrible. 14 years old and he is pushed out of his pack. I'm glad we didn't see what Skylar went through to survive through those years before he met Angelo. Back to Troy & Skylar. When they finally decide they are going to make a go of it, I was so happy for Skylar because now he has a full pack again. When he shows up and Troy's nasty mother says what she did, it didn't surprise me. After the stupid things she did at the beginning of the story, not surprises me with her. I'm glad that Skylar didn't go far came to his sensuous rather quickly. I'm glad that things ended the way they did, with Skylar being accepted, reuniting with his Mother and another little one on the way. I so can't wait to read Angelo's & Tanner's story. Also I want to know what Angelo is. I'm thinking something in the cat family maybe?

Enjoyable!

This is an enjoyable, fast-paced story. The characters are interesting, and complex with the narrator doing a great job of bringing them to life. The authors have created a world that is intriguing. This story is at times heartbreaking but full of determination, hope, and love. An enjoyable story worth giving a listen.

The Time Between Us

4.5 Stars

I really liked this book a lot more than I thought I would. I mean, the blurb sounded intriguing but I was thrilled that this book was way better than I was expecting it to be. I really enjoyed the story and the narration for this one.

First time with the narrator Kip Henderson and it for sure won’t be my last time checking out his work if he stays with the mm genre. I was really happy with how the narration of this book turned out, it made me like the book so much more. Kips voices and enthusiasm, and effort he put into this audiobook was very apparent from start to finish. I think he did a really great job.

Skylar was a cute character. I was really worried for him right from the start not knowing what was going to happen and felt horrible for how his family and pack treated him. That part of the storyline had me hooked, something that I hadn’t read/heard before. How Omega males are treated so horrible and sometimes killed just for being themselves. I was devastated thinking that horrible things would happen to Skylar throughout the book. But, as the story went on and Skylar met Angelo and found a place where he could be himself and thrive, I started loving this book. There were times though I really felt hurt and emotional strain right along with Skylar for some of the things that happened. I just wanted him to have his HEA.

Troy is an ass, from the first time we meet him up until right towards the end. But, I am actually glad he was written the way he was. It gave us some added drama and angst. It wasn’t just a super sappy hearts and flowers type of book and I really appreciated that. I loved the contrast we got between the characters and feelings and the storyline wasn’t just cut and dry. Troy’s mom ends up being a really piece of work. Like, wow she was a really horrible person who does not redeem herself and just becomes worse and worse as time went on. I don’t really understand how Troy and his whole family put up with that for as long as they did. Overall I really did enjoy this book and I am glad I picked it up, especially the audio version.

What a good story

What a sweet story about Skylar, an omega sent away from his home as a teenager that is finally able to find a family of his own choosing. It's sad that Troy, his alpha turned away from him the first time but I love that he finally steps up and becomes the strong man he needs to be for his family. I also really love that most of Troy's family have their back.

I look forward to the next book in the series. I really enjoyed the story but I'm not really a fan of the first person, active voice of the writing.

Really enjoyed my second audio by these guys and by a new narrator for me, Kip Henderson! I really got into this one...was sad when it ended..Kip did a great job bringing these characters to life and bringing their story to my ears! I will look forward to reading another by both the authors and the narrator!

Wonderful shifter story!

I really enjoyed this book! It took me a while to like Troy but once he decided to be the Alpha he needed to be he grew on me fast. I absolutely fell in love with Skylar and have added him to my ever growing list of people I need in my real life. Skylar's strength was amazing and the way he was able to pull through everything that was thrown at him is inspiring. This story has just the right amount of angst mixed with romance. These two author's did a great job of writing this story together and meshing the story line so that it was hard to know who wrote what. I hope there are more stories in this world they have created and that they have Kip Henderson narrate them. The narration on this was spot on. I had chills, tears, smiles, and all of the feels spectrum because the narrator makes you feel every bit of it with his voice.

Great second chance at love!

Skylar and Troy's story is such a great second chance at love. They definitely work for their happy ending but it just made me happy at the end. Now Kip Henderson did a great job in the narration. I enjoy listening to this story.
