Summary

Can an alpha doctor really want a sheltered omega like me?

I knew I was sheltered, but I never realized how much until my father died and I was plunged into life on my own. When the new alpha of my pack wants more than I’m willing to give, I know I can’t stay. Though I barely know him, Troy’s the one I trust to take me to safety. And though the timing is horrible, I can sense that he’s my fated mate.

Being in charge of my own life is harder than I thought. And when I forget to take my heat suppressors, Troy’s right there again. I never imagined what I wanted in a mate, and now I can’t think of anything but him. Is Troy really ready to mate with me? He’s never been in a relationship and I’ve never been with anyone. Adjusting to our bond and growing family is a test neither of us is prepared for.

But my old alpha isn’t ready to give me up, even if I’ve chosen another. And my relationship growing pains are nothing compared to what could happen if the alpha gets his hands on me. I’m determined to make things work. But can Troy keep me safe from a determined alpha?

What’s a fantastic relationship

The chemistry between these characters is fantastic. The story has been written very well and the personalities of the characters have been captured perfectly. With a fantastic performance from Guillaume, this audio has it all.

Kyler and Troy

Troy is not an Alpha, so his best friend Kyler is not for him. They have always been so close, when Kyler comes of age their friendship becomes impossible. Kyler loves his best friend but only an alpha can provide for him. I like that they go against society and search for their freedom. It takes a long time to reach their destination but the journey is full of surprises and yearning. Lovely story...

Enjoyed

I enjoyed getting know more about Kyler and Troy after meeting them in previous books. I liked the slow burn of their relationship especially with the unexpected heat. Also I enjoyed following the characters from the previous books.

Good

It was a good story and narration, but for best result i would suggest staring with the first book. Interesting characters with along road ahead of them, but you do get a happy ending. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Great addition to the series!

This is one of my favorite series and I love how the authors kept adding stories and characters to an already amazing world. This book 4 featured another wonderful story about fated mates, in a complex plot full of action, danger, intrigue and betrayal in which, as always, love fixes everything. Of course, the rereads of this great book are better when hearing the captivating performance of Mr Dubois. This is the first book I've ever heard narrating by him but I can assure you it won't be the last. Great reading!

Continue to enjoy the entries in this series

I enjoyed this story of two inexperienced fated mates learning to build their relationship. Both had some serious growing up to do, one to learn to compromise and give and take, the other to stand up for himself. I also am always down for an alpha trying to claim what isn't his and watching that conflict play out so the right pair gets their HEA. Another well done entry in the series that will bring me back for the next one. I always expect a deep voice for shifter books for some reason but Guillaume Dubois' lighter voice works very well for this series. I enjoyed the emotional tenor of his performance. It was nicely balanced and full without ever going over the top.

Unsure

Story: I think I would have benefited more if I had read/listened to the previous books in this series as I found myself a bit lost in the beginning. Kyler was a good character but I'm not too sure about Troy. I didn't really like him and his back & forth attitude. It has turned me off of the story. Narration: The narration was ok. There was time I got confused on who was supposed to be speaking.

Grief and Recovery

I enjoyed this story, but it's rather different than the preceding books in the series. The war with the humans is over, and now it's time for recovery and reconstruction. Although there is still a little suspense and drama, it is more of a person-to-person nature, rather than the dropping of bombs and mass attacks. I have to be honest and say I really disliked Troy and the way he treated Kyler for the first half of the book. He behaved mostly like an arrogant playboy, only caring about his fated mate when anyone else got too close to him. At first, he's nothing like the smitten, devoted Alphas of the first 3 books, although he does redeem himself by the end. Secrets, lies, and hidden truths mar the road to Troy and Kyler's happiness. They both have to learn to open up to each other if their love is going to succeed. The narration is good, including the tone and pacing. I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

Mixed feelings about this one

I had conflicted feelings about this one. Kyler and Troy’s connection lacked in depth - emotionally and physically. The narrator was ok; he tried to do different voices but sometimes his voice sounded exactly the same no matter who the character was.

Great Story 💜

This was a great storyline. From chapter 1 I was totally intrigued and couldn’t put it down. I enjoyed the angst, and drama blended perfectly with a whole lot of love! The narration was absolutely wonderful. This is my first book by this author as well as Guillaume Debois and IMO they are a brilliant combination. MM Shifters are not my favorite genre but this author may have changed my mind. I’m looking forward to reading/listening to more in this series. This is book 4 and can be read as a standalone. Sisters Spotlight 💜

Kyler and Troy

Coveted Mate is Book 4 in the Everglow Pack and should be enjoyed in order. I love this book. Kyler, an omega, is so sweet and goes through so much, with being kidnapped and the lose of his father to finding his fated mate and being pursued by his father's best friend, Preston. Troy, an alpha and doctor, also goes through a lot. But Kyler and Troy find they really are better together. Troy helps the humans as they continue to recover and wants to make a place for them to be safe. Definitely recommend this book and series. Narrator Guillaume Dubois does a fabulous job. He's definitely one of my favorite narrators.

Well written and performed. Fantastic!!

I'm always a sucker for a good MPREG book and Liam Kingsley never disappoints in that regard. Loved this book and the performance by Guillaume DuBois. The characters were well developed and I loved the vulnerability of both of them and how they grew throughout the book. Fantastic book all the way around and look forward to more of these three working together in the future!

Fantastic story!

I definitely enjoyed listening to this audiobook! This story is well written and narrated. It’s about fated mates and a wonderful storyline and it has suspense and romance. The narrator does a fabulous job with the characters and voices of each character making it easy to distinguish between the characters. Guillaume Dubois is becoming one of my favorite narrator’s. I definitely recommend this audiobook to everyone over the age of 18.

true mates

Preston made my guts sick and was a skeevy conniver. The lost condom scene was funny. I identified with Troy who came off as rough and uncaring at times, but I liked him. Kyler was wrong to cover up Preston being at his place, because it only made more problems. Kyler was so vulnerable and gullible it killed me. Preston should have been prosecuted for what he did amd meant to do to Kyler and the baby. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job.

A Fated Mate Romance ❤️

Coveted Mate is a emotional well paced story with very lovable characters and a very intense addictive storyline that had me feeling the loss, emotional suspense, self doubt, fear and trust issues as each played out. Starting with the fourth book in the Everglow Pack series had me a bit lost at times, but I figured it out and now I’m really looking forward to going back and starting from the beginning! I absolutely loved Kyler and Troy’s story and thought narrator Guillaume Dubois did a fabulous job bringing these characters to life!

Was Good

Both MC's had things weighing heavily on their minds which led to a little angst, but it wasn't to heavy. First time listening to this narrator, he did a pretty decent job.

Troy & Kyler

Kyler and Troy may be fated mates but they each have so much to get over and to learn before they can actually give in to their feelings. It is definitely a very bumpy road for these two, especially with Preston wanting and going after Kyler. Troy and Kyler are so much better together but Troy has a really hard time accepting his feelings, much less express them. Kyler has a very hard time getting over his father's death and has no idea how to be open with Troy. It was nice watching them each unravel little by little throughout the story. They really need to learn to communicate!! The narrator did a great job with the story and with the characters. I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy of this audio book.

great story!!

Kyler has just lost his dad. He is in the hospital and in a lot of pain. He speaks with the new Alpha Preston. Preston is sending their trusted Beta Hylan to pick him up. Troy is a doctor at the hospital. Troy is Kyler’s fated mate. Preston is sneaky and tries to take Kyler as his mate, but Kyler says no. Troy takes him away to be safe and feel secure. I really enjoyed this story. Liam Kingsley has a way of weaving a fantastic story line!! This was my first story narrated by Guillaume Dubois and he did a great job!
