What an enjoyable ride this was :)
Others have the plot, so I won't do that here. What I will say is that Ms Scott knows how to engage a reader's attention and keep it! From the moment Laurence and Alex meet, you know you're in for a fun time. Watching their relationship morph from what was supposed to be a casual thing , evolve into something meaningful, including their family and friends are some the best 8 hours I've spent :)
Michael F is pretty much one of my all-time favourite narrators. No matter the book, he always seems to sound like an ensemble cast *every* single time! This is the best way to enjoy this story, period :)

Enjoyable start to a new series :)

Two men on opposing sides have to work together against a common enemy - not quite enemies-to-lovers, but fun all the same.
The world-building for the story is well done and I had no trouble following the story, (I have not read the prequel, Foxy Heart). The story has magic, suspense, some twists (I didn't see coming) and so much more going on. Wade and Caleb make a good couple and hope to see more of them and their growing relationship.
John York provides a multi-faceted performance - characters are distinct, emotions portrayed well, accents were well done. Definitely a great way to enjoy the book!

Time travel mystery with a dash of romance!
A very interesting time travel story. Lew travelled back in time (to 1919) to look for a friend of his, (the premise of how and why is quite interesting). The story has mystery, suspense, magic and many likeable characters, especially Lew and Alec. I really enjoyed the story, but I have to say the narrator did a brilliant job of immersing me into the atmosphere of dark, dank post WWI London.
Callum Hale is very, very good! - he's great with the character accents, tone and inflections. I loved his performance and I really hope he does more books - I'll be on the lookout :)

A fun, romantic story :)

Such a fun story!
Adam and West (did anyone run those names together? Just me?) have been friends for a while. West has a crush on Adam's sister - or so it seems - and Adam has a crush on West. When West realises that maybe he may actually prefer Adam, he cooks up an excuse to have Adam show him what it's like to properly date someone. What follows are some fun, cute and some steamy times for the MCs.
An easy story to enjoy, even more so with Darcy Stark narrating. It was easy to distinguish between the characters and he had a good pace. Really enjoyed listening.

Good story with good narration :)

I enjoyed the story overall, though the mix-up in names (blurb says Mason, actual name used is Marcus (sp?) took half a point off.
Other than that, it's an interesting story - Levi, wanting to be in charge of his destiny, flees his pack. Marcus, a rich, playboy dragon has been sent to a small town to take care of some business (and grow up in the process). As fated mates, they're drawn together, but before they can get their HEA, they have to deal with their differences in background, pack politics and their own issues.
Alex Esquire did a nice job with the narration, I enjoyed listening. Not a bad way to experience the story.

Interesting story,

I hadn't read or listened to the first book, but I still enjoyed the story. There is a hurt/comfort theme - Stefan has been hurt and is a bit gunshy with the whole fated mate thing. Nicolas is patient and is determined to win Stefan over. Overall, it's an interesting story about fated mates and pack politics. The end sets the stage for the next book.
The narration was just ok for me.

I enjoyed the story, liked the narration

This is book 2 of the series. It's not bad as a standlone, but there are things that may not be clear if you haven't read/listened to the first book.
I like Seth and Mason's dynamic, though Seth could be a bit bratty sometimes. This story has a bit more bite to it, dealing with family betrayal. Overall, the action, suspense and steam kept me entertained.
The narration was quite good, I enjoyed the range of tones Mr. Amari had for the characters. A good way to experience the story.

Another fun addition to the series!

This a consistently fun series, especially when Tom pops in to provide his wit and wisdom.
This time 2 (unrelated) step-brothers are the focus of the story. Shane (omega) works as a waiter at Karmasoupra (sp?), the restaurant Keith owns. They've attracted to each other since college, but their 'rents went and married each other.
Fast forward to present day and they stubbornly refuse to give in to their attraction. With the help of a couple out-of-this world relatives, a bit of jealousy and the pulling up of big boy pants, both men get their HEA.
As always, Drew Bacca makes the stories enjoyable - good range for the characters, esp. my personal fave - Tom. Enjoyed it!

Good fantasy story, interesting (good) narration!

I enjoyed the world-building and the characters. There's a lot going on in the story - court politics, secrets, loyalties - all told from all the major players POV. This may seem a bit confusing when reading, but when listening, the different POVs made a lot of sense.
The romance is not the main focus of the story, but it's there.
This is my first M/F duet narration - great fan of Greg Boudreaux, he gives a great perfomance. Lessa Lamb is new to me andd she gave just as good a perfomance. Both made this a great way to enjoy the story! 🤗

A Diamond is an Alpha's best (man) friend 😉

Reynard's story was all I hoped for and more! After hearing about him in Mate, I really wanted to know more about him being "tied up" 😄 and Misha, the bossy omega doing the tying up.
This is such a great addition to the series! All the stories are linked together by an anchor point, it could be a scene (Reynard being tied up appears in Mate) or certain characters, like my very favourite couple Harry and Ev, who have been in every book in this fantastic series. I love the attention to detail that both authors pay to the characters and to things/people they interact with.
This story is a smidge edgier than the preceeding books, but no less entertaining. Highly recommend!
If anyone was made to narrate this series, it has been Michael Ferraiuolo! He is nothing short of amazing because there are so many voices in this particular story; down to the bad guys sneer and malevolent laugh. And Bertram's accent *swoon*. I absolutely loved listening to this and cannot wait for more to come!
