Finally Tony finds his mate in Joey, one of Cyrus' many brothers who happens to be part of the Mafia and the only one who is an omega. It's been a long time coming since his brother Adrian and all their friends found their mates one after the other. I love this group of shifters dreamed up by Susi Hawke and Crista Crown.
This book is full of bears, boys, babies and baddies. Plenty of action, excitement and a good dollop of romance thrown in for good measure. Highly recommended MPreg shifter MM romance action-adventure. Kirt Grave does an excellent job of bringing the guys to life.

I love this series by Piper Scott and Virginia Kelly about dragons and their mates, their hoards and the competing clans. This spin-off series from the original Forbidden Desires stories didn't disappoint as we meet the infamous Magpie (aka omega disgrace Misha Vasiliev) who has been the bane of Reynard Drake's existence for years. I love how the two meet and discover sides of each other that they never knew existed. They bring out the best in each other, even when they're at their worst. Highly recommended Dragon shifter MPreg fated mates story, voiced by the highly talented Michael Ferraiuolo, who is one of my favourite narrators.

Kenneth Obi is one of my favourite narrators, so I jumped at this audiobook, even though I hadn't heard any of the others in the series and it could actually stand alone, but I did feel the need to go back and read/listen to the others (voiced by different narrators) and get to know the other characters in this world after getting to know them a little in support of Abel and Mateo during this story set partly in a beach bar when Abel is on vacation and then in Hobson Hills at Abel's bar and brewery. I love MPreg and highly recommend this Omegaverse series.

This 6th book in the Sulfur Springs series by Taylor Rylan grabbed me right from the start and it picks up after events from previous books, so it's best enjoyed if you read/listen to the series in order. Michael Dean is one of my favourite narrators, so it was a pleasure to listen to him bring all these diverse characters to life. There's some action, some adventure, and plenty of heartfelt moments. Highly recommended contemporary MM romance with some action and thrills to entertain.

This is a collection of short stories about the various boys and daddies from Daddy's Lap in the Davey's Rules series and it's nice to get the happy endings for all of the guys in their continuing stories.
Michael Dean, who is one of my few one-click narrators, does a great job of voicing the guys and making these fun, sweet tales from S. Hawke come to life. Highly recommended Daddy/Boy collection of short stories. Best enjoyed after listening to the complete series in order.

So, this is Ryan the older brother from Book 1 of Lynn Van Dorn's North Shore Stories and he meets his match in Marek the nurse who comes to look after his ailing father. Ryan needs help tending to his terminally ill father and also to be reined in by a firm, steady hand, and it would seem that Marek is the right man for the job in more ways than one.
Michael Farraiuolo does a wonderful job yet again of bringing these richly complex, quirky characters to life.
Highly recommended contemporary MM romance with a twist of Dom/sub dynamic thrown in for good measure.

I love this mixed messages series by Lily Morton with her quirky, complex characters, so I was happy to see Henry get his turn at finding his true love/soul mate after being the friend and confidant in the previous books in the set.
Joel Leslie is one of my all-time favourite narrators and he does a wonderful job, as always, of bringing the guys to life. Highly recommended fun contemporary MM romance with a best friends/step-brothers to lovers trope.

Who doesn't love a good Royal Romance? Helen Juliet's wonderfully rich, quirky characters are brought to life by Kieran Flitton who is a new-to-me narrator, but he does an admirable job of giving the guys their own voices.
This is a sweet contemporary MM romance with a Royal twist. Highly recommended.

This is a short fun listen as a bratty, wounded diva boy finds a daddy who is used to getting his own way and knows exactly how to get it.
Highly recommended for lovers of contemporary MM romance with a Daddy/Boy dynamic.

I started reading this originally as an ebook ARC a while back and didn't engage with it at the time, though I think that had more to do with my own headspace than any issues with the story as a whole as Lynn Van Dorn always creates rich, complex and quirky characters.
When this finally came out as an audiobook narrated by the wonderfully talented Kirt Graves, I was able to finally pick up this book and delve all the way through to the end of the story as Aldrich and Miguel find their own ways to truly see and be seen while falling in lust, then love. I like how the characters all get their own HFN/HEA in one way or another.
Recommended for lovers of contemporary MM romance with a bit of light bondage and interfering family and friends thrown in for good measure.
