Summary

A hotshot lawyer desperate to start a family. A star baseball player who's been screwed out of his future.

Ty Cunningham comes from old money, but he's never been content to live on privilege. He's the youngest partner in his firm, and the only omega partner. He's worked hard to get where he is, and he's proud of what he's accomplished. One thing is missing - a child to share it with.  

Carter Bowman has it all. Drop-dead looks, a fantastic career, and the title of All-Star pro baseball player. The one thing he doesn't have is money sense. When he falls prey to a scam artist posing as a financial adviser, he's close to broke. A buddy suggests he marry for money - Carter hadn't planned to get married until his career was over, but he's desperate.  

A contract with Ty seems like the ideal solution, but what happens when feelings and family get in the way?

Sizzling, unmitigated passion. A spark of love. Tough decisions and moral dilemmas…this gay mpreg omegaverse tale has it all.

Married for money!

Ty and Carter are an unlikely couple. A old money lawyer with an ascending career and a poor baseball player. But they match and there’s spark between them. It has a sweet hea.
The narration was too slow and passive for me.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4 or 5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

4.5 stars

I liked this book much more than the first book in the series. Although the start of Ty and Carter's relationship is wrong on so many levels, this time there is nothing to dislike in either main character. The marriage occurs well before the love, but otherwise the growth of their love is realistic.

I love how descriptive this story is. Once again, there are dreadful relatives and a beyond awful ex. I particularly enjoyed Keegan, whose behaviour and clothes add light relief to heavier moments.

As usual, it took me a time to get into Guy Veryzer's narration. Some of his reading is a bit "sing-song", but I enjoyed listening to most of his characters' voices.

Unique Alpha and Omega story!

A truly unique story in the Alpha/Omega world with Mpreg. I wasn't sure what to expect going in to this as it was a new author for me but I must say I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Our omega, Ty, has fought many battles to get where he is in life and he hasn't let anyone else's opinions persuade him onto a different path. He is strong, loving, and dedicated. Carter, the Alpha that comes into his life, is unlike the other Alphas in this story which is a very good thing. Even though these two start off very unconventionally, Carter makes the necessary effort to be there for Ty. Ty's brother was, well he was entertaining and every time he would show up I found myself chuckling and wanting to high five him for all that he was doing for his brother. The story itself is full of meddling, hateful, irritating parents and an extremely distasteful ex that try everything they can to come between Ty and Carter but watching how these two dealt with everything that was thrown at them will make you believe in the strength of relationships again. Ty and Carter believed in each other and supported each other, talked through everything, and communicated properly which kept the bad eggs from being able to win. I'm looking forward to the next story in this series and since I skipped the first one I will probably go back and read it as well. I have yet another author to add to my reading list.

My reason for lowering the overall and performance star levels were the narration, not the story. The story is awesome, the narration I wasn't exactly a fan of. I had to speed it up to 1.20x to be able to bear it and then there were certain voices that the narrator would use that made me cringe. I was enjoying the story too much to stop listening though which says alot for this author's talent.

The book is good, the narration not so much...

Carter and Ty had a bit of an unconventional start, but they managed to overcome all obstacles in their way and find their HEA. They had a lot of chemistry and the story was engaging and interesting.

Unfortunately, the narrator didn't work for me and I don't know how many times I stopped because I'd had enough of his voice. I actually had to increase the speed of the audio to make it bearable, which is something that I'd never done. So, I'm very sorry, but I just can't recommend the audio.

good story - on the fence on the narration

Would I listen to it again: i'd be more inclined to read it rather than listen to it
Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Was I invested in the characters: yes
What did I like about the story? good pace, interesting array of characters with good depth of personality, and a story that flows effortlessly.

A contract for marriage and a baby - nothing more than a business arrangement for Ty (lawyer omega craving a baby) and Carter (baseball star alpha who fell victim to a scam artist losing all his money). The perfect solution to both their problems - easy peasy - right?

Narrator comment: I'm on the fence about the narration, Guy Veryzer has done a reasonable job with the narration, Each character has his own voice and the emotions of the story are there, I"m just not convinced the voices he's given each character is reflective of their personality or does them justice.

Every page a gem!!

I loved this story and now an open mind and a contract brought together a couple who would not normally meet! I loved the back and forth snark between the couple . Especially Ty's super protective brother Keegsan, Ty' s very flamboyant and colorful older brother and Ty''s parents, simply superb!

Love the story, narration not so much

Carter and Ty did everything backwards in this unconventional relationship. If it wasn't for all the drama with Ty's ex and his parents, they would have had a beautiful marriage. But goodness, how can Ty's parents be this uptight and ignorant. All the craziness they put Carter and Ty through became tedious after awhile. Aside from that it was good seeing their relationship progress to such a truly positive outcome. I absolutely love Keegan and hope he gets his own story. He's truly the best big brother. First time listening to this narrator and I don't like leaving a negative review, but his performance was just horrible. I stuck to listening completely because I made a commitment to review and I enjoyed the story. If interested in this book I'd recommend reading instead of listening

Love the story, not the narrator

This is a personal favourite story of mine. The drama and plot is fun and easy to follow. l like the characters a lot. They've got depth and personality. And I love the addition of characters from the previous book and future books. Easily a repeat read/listen. I've done both.

Carter and Ty, love at last

I always enjoy Aiden Bates books and this audio version was great as well. I was not fond of the narrator but if you speed up the audio by 25% it is tolerable. I would recommend the novel and audio book.

Narrator

I really liked the story line of this book and that is the only reason I stuck it out and listened. The narrator left much to be desired.
