Summary

In Oceanport, New England's most gossipy small town, people wonder about Griff. Such a cute omega can't possibly be satisfied without a proper mate they say. Yet he'll be 30 soon and as far as they know he's never been with anyone! The truth is that Griff has given up on finding love...that is until his childhood best friend moves back to town and sets his heart on fire.

When Dean's firefighter career is sidetracked by a tragic accident, returning to his roots to mend seems like a good move. It gives him a chance to breathe, as well as a chance to reconnect with his oldest friend, the omega who stole his heart when they were young. For some reason though, Griff keeps shying away from him, and it takes Dean a lot of patience, and a ton of cupcakes, to lure the sugar-addict out of his shell - and into his arms.

But Dean's memories are still seared by the tragedy that sent him home and Griff is afraid of giving in to his omega instincts. Can they win through their personal walks of fire or is their flame bound to burn out?

Sweet, adorable, romantic! And puppies!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If they like ABO, mpreg, babies, puppies, and an adorable omega/alpha partnership, then yes, I totally would!

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the narrator's voice for Griff. His mannerisms, his ramblings, the hope and fears in his voice were so easy to recognize, and it really brought that character to life.

What does John Solo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The voices of the characters! I LOVED Griff and how much emotion there was when he was speaking. He did a great job bringing life to the characters in this story.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I listen to audiobooks in my car and I had to sit in my car to listen to the end of a chapter, I didn't want to get out!

Any additional comments?

I'm a big fan of this author and this series, and this is my first audiobook I have listened to in this series. I really enjoyed it and I can't wait for the third book to come out on audio because that's my favorite in the series!

Sweet & Sexy

A super sweet story that I thoroughly enjoyed. After listening to the first book, I was so glad to get Griff's story, he such a sweet character and so supportive of his brother, he deserves his own HEA. Dean is just perfect for him, he's very patient and understanding with Griff. They are great together and I really liked seeing their relationship develop. It's great that they were such good friends first. The narrator was very good with all of the voices but especially with Griff's voice, the tone and inflections are just how I would have imagined Griff.

A Baby for the Firefighter, Oceanport Omegas book

While I liked this book its not my favorite of the entire series. This book was a more on the sweet and sugary side than book one was. Absolutely no angst or drama in this book, just a really cute story overall.
And the award for the most Patient and Understanding Alpha goes to....
Dean, Alpha, firefighter, baker, Sweetest most understanding, patient guy on the planet. lol. Taking a break from his job, he comes back into town to help his cousin with his business after moving away when he was a teen where he ends up reconnecting with his teenage best friend Griff.
Griff, Omega, Photographer, Sugar obsessed, Virgin and Afraid of the attraction he still has to his teenage friend and crush Dean.
I was really happy with the way this book turned out. To see a couple, Dean and Griff turn from friends into more and have actual conversations about their feelings, and making sure they each both feel comfortable about where they are in life and where they are headed together was refreshing. There relationship together just had a natural progression to it and wasn't rushed at all. The way Dean took his time to make sure Griff was happy at all times was really sweet. Also, I really hate Griffs parents, they are horrible people and I wish they would have stayed out of the story, but I do see why the author added them in. I liked that we also got to see more of Griff's brother Eli (from book 1) and that we got to meet Shane and his kids, who we should be seeing in the next book 3 of this series.
Audio - John Solo is doing great with this series and I really hope the Author sticks with him for the rest. He really made sure that Griff and Dean both were unique characters with his narration and I really enjoyed listening to this book.

Loved these two

I'm so glad that Griff got his HEA. Even though his parents kind of came around, I still couldn't stand them, especially because they turned their back on Eli. Anyway, Dean & Griff made a sweet couple.

Such a fun book

I really love Griff and Dean. Griff is such a fun omega that refuses to act like an adult and I love how Dean uses Griff's sweet tooth as a courting tool. I think these two men are my favorite couple in Oceanport because of their friendship-turned relationship.

John does such a good job bringing out the personality of everyone, especially Dean's little cousin Mary, that I spend a lot of time smiling while listening.

Those parents need an adjustment

I thought the way Griff and Dean tip toed around each other part of the book was cute, but the consumation was even better. I was glad to see Griff and Eli's mom finally stand up to their dad about changing his attitude. And then, she goes and makes an iodiot of herself with Griff. Repeat the past mom! smh. Know your place. Those parents needed a muzzle. So glad things worked out the second time around for these adorable guys. I enjoyed the narrator's voices for the different characters.

Overcoming Issues

I love this next book in the series. It was great to see Griff get his chance. He was such a support for his brother in the past. We see him figure out the way to overcome his issues is to find the right person to share it with. I also appreciate how Griff can be strong for Dean as well. I love how these guys work through things together and find out the best way to move forward together.

Could have been better

The writing is very simple and overly detailed. It feels like the narrator is reading to a child, which I am not. The inner dialogue that the characters have almost every other line is extremely childish and normally just restates what was said in the previous lines.

Cupcakes and puppies!

The book was decent but not my favorite in the series. It was too slow-paced and very low on smut. Griff is a 30 years old virgin omega who’s afraid of having sex and alphas. And Dean is an all-round perfect boyfriend. And as expected, Griff parents were asses. I knew I’m not going to like them from the first book but this book just confirmed it. This is sappy sweet, very slow-paced and this could have even identified as a YA if there wasn’t the only two sex scenes which are very low on heat. As always, John Solo narrated the hell out of this book though. Love, loved his narration! Always spot on. Enjoyable but not memorable.

4.25 Dean bakes cupcakes for Griff stars
