Summary

Story takes place in the Omegaverse. Book One in the Hobson Hills Omegas series.  

Carter Benson is a lonely, scarred mess of an alpha. Honorably discharged from the army after being injured, he is left with very little that really matters. All he has is a trust fund he refuses to touch, burns on his face, and a brand new prosthesis. He doesn't have his family, he isn't near his friends, and his face makes small children cry. So he goes to Maine, finds a tiny town, and starts a business as a plumber. It doesn't help his loneliness, though. Until a little girl hunts him down and forces him to be her new best friend.  

Elijah Wilson has lived in Hobson Hills his whole life. So what that most of the townspeople think he's a whore because he's a single omega and got pregnant at 18? So what if they think he takes advantage of his grandparents by living on their property? Elijah and his large extended family know better. They know that he hasn't dated anyone since before Olive was born. They know he works hard in the family business and is great with investments. 

They know the truth, but it can be hard living in a town that doesn't care about the truth. It can also be really lonely. Until his daughter makes a new best friend. When the two men meet, sparks fly. Their lives change for the better, but life isn't always easy. Narrow-minded townspeople and greedy parents can cause a lot of trouble. But there's always hope. There's always love.  

Author's Note: This is a m/m, non-shifter, mpreg love story with no angst and no cheating, just a HEA. There are a few potty mouths, so beware. Eighteen+ listeners only, please.

Sweet Hills of Hobson

This is the first book in CWGrays series “Hobson Hills Omegas” and it is mpreg at it’s sweetest. The book is about Carter, a wounded veteran and Elijah, a single omega farther and their journay to happiness.
The book is fluffy and sweet and perfect for a rainy day or if you need a break from everyday troubles. I highly recommend!

Enjoyable small town romance

This is my first C.W. Gray story and I really enjoyed the plot and the characters. It was easy to fall into the story and follow along as Carter and Elijah fall in love with a little push from Olive, Carter's young daughter. She provides a lot of comic relief and lightens the story. These are two men who are in need of the love and care of another, Carter meanly gossiped about by the town who don't know the actual circumstances of his life and Elijah who has physical disabilities from his time in the army and feels isolated from his family with how he wants to live his life. There's a bit of drama that comes in the form of Carter's parents but it adds a bit more to the tension and relationship building of the story.
I really enjoyed the romance and Carter's family, as many as there are, are friendly and want the best for Carter and Olive. I look forward to more from the people of Hobson Hills and the possible stories that will come.
This is also the first time I've heard Philip Fairbanks and he gives wonderful narration to the story. The voices and emotions are well portrayed and I look forward to hearing more from him in the future.

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

Sweet story - great narration

The story follows the established Omergaverse rules. Not a lot of angst as is the norm for these types of stories. Philip Fairbanks did the narration, he is definitely one to watch. I'll be looking for more of his work.

Wonderful start to the series!

I've enjoyed this series so much and was elated to find them in audio. Watching Carter and Elijah fall in love, build their family and deal with not only the town gossips but with Eli's parents was perfection! I've fallen in love with the omegaverse this author has created. And seriously, I want to move to Hobson Hills and be adopted by the Wilson's!
Both Carter and Elijah have their own issues to deal with but they come together so well. And while their relationship doesn't have a lot of angst, the obstacles they overcome more than make up for the easy relationship they share. And I enjoy the sweet love story showing them working together to beat the odds.
This is the first audiobook I've listened to with this narrator. Philip Fairbanks was a pleasant surprise, and I look forward to the next in the series.
A feel good story that makes my heart so happy!

A Delightful Story

... of a single omega raising his daughter with the help of his extended family. And finding love.

I've read the ebook, and enjoyed the story. When I had the chance to pick up the Whispersync audio, I grabbed it!

This is a fairly low agnst story, with lots of feel good moments. There are moments of stress and tears, and forgiveness, too. There is also wicked comeuppance for the dastardly duo, and a lovely HEA for our darling omega. It's a feel-good story.

Narrator Philip Fairbanks did a pretty good job of keeping the characters straight. It was quite a task as there are so many secondary characters: loads of aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, and town folk.

Way better than I heard.

Wow. This was awesome! I love omegaverse comics and this is my first omegaverse romace novella. CW Gray has an easy action oriented way of writing that evokes emotion. I loved listening to this. His vivid word pictures help develope the town this wholesome romantic story along. Yes I said wholesome. I freaking love this little town and the families we get to know. I need to know what happens next. Hopefully you will too.

Nice enough love story to pass the time

I had already read the ebook so I was looking forward to the audio version. The love story is nice enough, definitely insta-love, alpha Carter and omega Elijah fall for each other basically at first sight and their relationship moves forward really quickly. Elijah has a daughter, Olive, and because he is a single dad, he's plagued by bad rumors in the little town they live in. Carter is an injured vet who choses not to live with his rich family, and instead moves to Elijah's little town to be a plumber and find his own purpose. There were moments I enjoyed about the book and moments that left me bemused because I found their relationship moving too quickly, considering that even though Elijah has only met Carter, he is willing to have him move in with him and his child in a month. Also there is a big plot against Elijah by his parents that I found a little hard to believe. Anyway, their love is sweet, Carter is a gentle alpha and Elijah is very likable, and there is definitely a happy ending with a lot of possibilities for different couples to follow. The narration left me unsatisfied, the performer has a pleasant voice, but not much range. I had a difficult time distinguishing characters, they all sounded the same, and since there was no variation of tone, it was difficul to really get into the narration because I would lose track of who was talking, not to mention that Carter had a throat injury that at times would make his voice sound rough and whispery, yet this detail is never realized during the narration. So I liked the ebook, and the performer's voice is nice, but overall I didn't enjoy the narration.

A sweet autumn romance with a cute kid

I liked this story. I have just recently started reading into the omega universe, where I like the stories, it's still a hard grasp for me on men having babies, being Alpha, omega, etc but not being shifters. it seems the same just not telling that part. that's not important though, just my two cents.
I really liked both of these men and my heart went out to Elijah many times. I can't say much without giving away too much story so I will leave it as great characters, even all the family and of course a sweet, cute little girl that steals the show.
I listened to the audio and I enjoyed the narration.
