Summary

JACK

My life ended when I was 16. Not literally - I’m no ghost, I just feel like one. It's a byproduct of losing your pack to a plague that skips you by like you’re not worth the effort. Chose all the good ones and you’re what was left behind. Survivor’s guilt, people call it. I just call it like I see it.

I do a decent job of going through the motions. I’ve got a good reputation as an alpha, and everyone loves to joke about the only vegan alpha in North America. Some days even I’m convinced that this is it. As good as it gets.

Then Dylan Kapernit walks into my shop and blows that theory to hell. 

It's like everything was gray and now there’s technicolor. He pops, no matter what corner he tries to hide in. Like my eye can’t help but be drawn to him, just to make sure he’s alright. 

There’s something about this widowed father that brings my protective alpha instincts surging to the surface. In ways I’ve forgotten how to handle.

So of course my efforts to make things better only make it all worse. Put Dylan, his whole family in danger. For a second, I forgot about the curse of being me.

But I won’t forget again. And I’ll do whatever it takes to make it right.

To make sure nothing ever threatens the man I love again. Even once I’m gone.

DYLAN

After my mate died, I was sure I would never love again. But I’ve got a track record of being wrong about everything.

I thought Micah and I would grow old together. That one stupid mistake couldn’t destroy my whole world. That I could be enough for my daughter, that I could make up for my past sins. I thought I was doing okay.

I don’t know what I believe in anymore, but I know its not myself. Which is why I can’t tell if Jack Hickam is my redemption or my punishment.

One moment he’s everything I thought I’d never have again, and the next he’s my new greatest mistake, bringing unimaginable danger to my door. My daughter’s door.

Only now it seems I was wrong again, that I turned my back on the one man who just wanted to have it. I don’t know if I’m too late to fix things. I always have been before.

All I know is I still have to try.

This 50,000 word novel about vegan alphas, mpreg, and life after loss comes complete with a HEA no one’s immune to - as long as they’re over 18!

Drawn to You

The narration by Jack Calihan was so well done. He has a deep clear voice that is a dream to listen to.

Note: it is a M/M, Make Pregnancy, Paranormal-Shifter book.

This was my first book by Preston Walker & Liam Kingsley. I have read two MPreg books in the past and did not really enjoy them as there was a lack of actual storyline and It felt like there was a rush to meet the criteria for the genre instead of pacing the story. The same can not be said for Drawn to you. This book had a lot of drama and angst. I definitely pulled me in from the beginning. Without spoiling the ending I feel like it all worked out a bit too conveniently for my liking which was the only big complaint I have about the story.

Brilliant storyline

I loved this book. It had a different angle than most other shifter books I’ve read. It was more about the characters than the shifting. Great chemistry and loveable characters. Great narration from Jack.

alpha omega chemistry loss love baby

I immediately loved Dylan. He was a kind, loving, strong, single-father with at grieving heart, loving family, and an intensity he didn't even know he possessed. At least that was until he needed it.

Jack well let me see. What did I like most about him beside the sacrifice he was willing to make. He was guarded in a since and he was vegan. That was one of the stranger things about him. He was conscious but not typical. He was strong, but not overpowering. He was himself.

I did enjoy this short step in to the world of mm romance and alpha and omega's.

Jack Calihan did a good job providing the contrast of two strong male in their own right and allowing you to visually see the difference like a movie in your head. The audio was clear, clean, and the quality was good.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Audiobookworm Promotions on behalf of various authors, narrators, and publishers. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

I LIKED IT!

I liked it. The narration was great and kept you entertained. The author did a good job with the character builds and plot. I read this book because any time I'm given the opportunity to listen to one of Jack Calihan's (the narrator) performances, I won't refuse it. I have listened to 7 books that were narrated by him and I can guarantee you'll be amazed at how he gives the story that extra flair! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Cute story

This was a pretty cute book. Jack and Dylan are completely opposite. I liked the progression of their relationship. Jack has a secret that really could have been dealt with much sooner if he didn't keep putting it off.

One of my biggest issues is I wasn't clear on the passage of time, i'd feel like something occurred within days but it was actually months. This was my first mpreg book and i'm still not quite sure how I feel about that.

Jack Calihan's narration was good. The characters didn't fully come to life for me but i liked his delivery.

WHO IS THE OMEGA?

DRAWN TO YOU is a stand-alone Mpreg shifter romance about finding life again after unimaginable loss.

Both Dylan and Jack have endured tragic loss, and yet their lives couldn’t be more dissimilar. When chance brings them together, there is no denying the attraction between the two very different artists. I loved that they weren’t coy one another.

Dylan’s family and Jack’s small pack are each amazing in their own ways and I would love to find out more about them all. This could easily be expanded into a series by choosing a direction and putting furry feet to the ground.

I didn’t like that Jack, as an alpha, acted more like an Omega when it came to his health and the health of those around him. Major jerk points to him! Still, I understand the reason for it in relation to creating a story. Sometimes an author must be cruel to produce a work worth reading. Ripping our guts out in order to construct a masterpiece of beauty … or at least cuteness and reward.

This is the first book I have read from either of these authors. I hope it won’t be my last. They provide humor, love, sexy, family, and community in a wonderfully, deep and moving story.

Favorite line: Jack: “For the record, you’re all missing out. I could be bringing you the best hummus in Seattle thirty minutes from now.” “The thing is,” said Mark. “The best hummus in Seattle is still hummus.”

Note: I love hummus, but this had me giggling for a long time. This is exactly how my friends yank on each other and I loved it.

Narration: Jack Calihan has a rich baritone voice with a steady cadence, clarity, and good pronunciation. He is easy to listen to and I would definite pick up another book if he were the reader. It must have been fun for him to be reading a character with his own first name!

There were a couple of production errors – overlaps and drags. These should have been caught and corrected before release. There was also one instance where Adam was called Avery, and I don’t know if that was a written error or a blooper that wasn’t caught.

Note: While I received this book as a gifted audiobook copy via audiobookwormpromotions, my opinions are my own and are given freely.

Jack Calihan made me Swoon!!!!!!

Alpha/Omega stories are my favorite. Alpha Jack was not over bearing or controlling, and Omega Dylan wasn't whiney and needy. The story had a good flow, and some hot scenes. Jack Calihan was amazing, and more than once his alpha voice gave me goosebumps. #audiobookobsession

cute mpreg story

This was a single dad romance and both these characters came from different worlds and both were carrying around horrible memories from their past. Both knew what it was like to carry grief and guilt from events that taken place in their past. I enjoyed this one. The story was well enough written to capture my attention.I enjoyed both charcters and their story. This was a quick read for me. Although the characters deal with heavy stuff this wasn't a heavy read but not super fluffy either and had just the right amount of steamy scenes.

Awesome love story!

Dylan and Jack both have tragedies in their pasts that still haunt them now. Both are not looking for love until they meet and there is an instant attraction. Jack's one hidden secret can tear them apart. This is the first time I have listened to a book by these authors and narrator. I am very impressed. The authors created characters that have strong and loving personalities. I know I was cheering them on, grieving with them, laughing, loving their protection of family and mates, and feeling the sexual attraction and love between them. With the authors' words and the amazing narration I felt I was part of the story. That narrator definitely captured the personalities of the characters.I volunteered to receive an Audible copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I highly recommend this Audible book.

I loved this book! 💞💞💞

From the moment I started this book I couldn’t put it down. The characters are sexy and funny and I absolutely fell in love with them both. This story was well written although there was one area that kinda surprised me. That being said I’ve learned that in the shifter/paranormal world anything can happen.
The narration was absolutely amazing!! Swoon worthy voice that I seriously couldn’t stop thinking about. Hot and sexy it was perfect for this story.
This book has an HEA and I highly recommend it.

An Easy Read

I felt there was a bit of contradiction with the MC being so bereft and then all of a sudden being so crawling out of his skin over an alpha. If he reacts that way to an alpha, then how did he go for four years without it happening? Other than that, it was a good story. Sweet single dad looking for love.
