Kent crumpled the lame flyer in his hand and looked across the street at the Salty Stix bakery and thought to himself...this is war. Single father Pierre Duchamp has recently returned to Hollydale with plans to open Salty Stix, an authentic French bakery like the one he apprenticed at in Paris. The omega doesn’t have, need, or even want an alpha in his life - especially a provincial small town rube that doesn’t understand the concept of a little healthy competition.

This was a really quick listen full of great characterisation, omega Drama and FUN. Drew Bacca is as always spot on with the characters. Cupid visits Hollydale this time and he’s adorable. When all these children grow up, they’ll need to extend the town to fit them all.
A one sit joyous listen.

Eventually being diagnosed with reactive attachment disorder as a child, "difficult" didn’t even begin to describe the nightmare of Charlie’s life. Escaping the drug-induced limbo he existed in and running from his alcoholic mother and despotic grandfather, he finally finds some peace and a home on Rainbow Key. Noah is also running, even if he doesn’t realize it, and the guilt he feels over his brother’s suicide chases him no matter where he goes.

This series so much. I adored reading Charlie and Noah’s story but Darcy Stark just adds that bit extra to make this a compulsory listen. Victoria Sue has a wonderful cast of flawed characters that calls to the “different” in all of us.

I’m absolutely addicted to this series in book form and listening to the audio, it gets even better. Pandora Pine writes a compelling supernatural mystery story and Michael Pauley just is Tennyson and Ronan, he gives every character an individual voice and I’m really looking forward to hearing this vast cast of characters develop.

Ian’s entire adult life has been spent climbing the ladder to partnership at his law firm and squeezing in a little fun with omegas in his spare time. Settling down with one and starting a family is so far from his thoughts, it’s laughable. So why does he find himself sticking around to help an adorably awkward omega as he struggles to keep a tiny human alive?

I have absolutely loved this series in audio. Drew Bacca does an excellent job of being all the characters involved. The idea of two child phobic guys ending up a family was delicious. It was funny to listen to, but that letter just made me cry, (as I’m sure it was supposed to 😉) It wouldn’t have been a Hollydale tale without the guardian angels having a say. I listened to this doing the ironing, it definitely made it less painful. Susie Hawk writes a delightful mpreg book.

I jumped into this series with this book, based purely on the blurb, so I wasn’t sure at first. Tom’s speech patterns were driving me nuts! A couple of chapters in and I started to get it. I ended up loving the story, All of the characters are beautifully written into an odd and diverse family. Tom and Colin make fantastic Dads to young Ali. The twist is unexpected and lovely.
Drew Bacca is a new narrator to me and I thought he did a splendid job. I’ll look out for more from him.im already catching up with this series.

Blinking his eyes, he looks over to see a sexy older alpha dragon kneeling at his bedside. His kind, crinkled green eyes and gray streaked hair set Nathan’s heart on fire.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series of audio books. Colin Darcy does an incredible job of giving all the characters( and there are a lot of them) very distinctive voices. The accents are really entertaining.
I was really satisfied with the outcome of this last book, The hunters are all gone or disbanded, the unicorns are family and what a family, it’s growing faster than a rabbit colony.LOL.
Nathan and Brick like all the other pairings are lovely together and all the other couples are heavily involved in the book. There’s a lot ot hot sexy times and an equal number of laughs.
I highly recommend this series.

I’m listening to this series having never read the books and Colin Darcy a new narrator for me. He’s doing a wonderful job. Every character is easily distinguishable. Each story increases the love factor. Sana has been a favourite from book 1 with his wonderful heart and Dragon talents it came as no surprise his Heart Song would be an Alpha and Peter is perfect. The villain of the piece is also no surprise at all. How they take him down is a much anticipated edition. This audio was full of love, action, fights, injuries and of course Mpreg. I really recommend this series.

Darcy Stark is a new narrator to me, I’ll be looking out for him in future and can’t wait to hear him narrate the rest of the series. I loved Joshua’s Rainbow when I read it and was putting my own voices in. But hearing the distinct changes for each character added that something extra.

Paranoid inventor and draconian expert Sam is a conspiracy theorist who lives on the fringes, preferring to keep a low profile while he does what he knows best: study the ancient draconian culture he knows isn't a fairy tale. Aided by his intuitive ability to create gadgets and harness sound waves, Sam changes identities and addresses as often as he changes his clothes...all in a lifelong quest to evade The Man. When he accidentally wakes a "sleeping" dragon who insists they are mates, Sam's carefully structured world shifts sideways.

I received this audio for review. I didn’t know it was available, I’d have listened to it on release.
I love the clan that’s being built here, even though this is Sam and Blaze’s story, the ongoing theme keeps developing and the other team clan members remain heavily involved. Sam and Blaze are well matched by fate and I’ve loved hearing them fall so far into love.
It’s pretty obvious to me who the leader of the hunters is and that’s going to hurt our guys deep down.
I’m also looking forward to the Shenanigans between Sanna and Pete.

There’s a reason why Lee Kennedy is still in college - and it has nothing to do with his academic performance. He’s switched his major repeatedly and stalled on his Master’s thesis, but there’s only so much longer he can hold out. And once he graduates, it’s time to trigger the Algorithm. Everyone in Lee’s family has allowed the Algorithm to match them with a spouse. As has everyone on his block. His neighborhood. In fact, everyone he’s ever known. Pairing with his own Algorithm match seems inevitable.
