Summary

Reunited, and it feels better than good....

It was a long time ago, but Luke will never forget Jason Delancey and their first kiss under the bleachers of football practice. Now, 20 years later, he has a lot more to focus on than the one man who got away. Divorced with a seven-year-old son and a vicious lawsuit against the Silver Oak Medical Center to deal with, Luke has no time for reminiscent feelings of the past.  

When Jason walks back into his life as the attorney on the case, all of those old emotions and desires come tumbling forth. But when Luke's overprotective brothers try to get in the way of a reunion between the long-lost lovers, it's up to Jason and Luke to fight for what they couldn't have so long ago. And the fight is harder than they ever imagined as they go up against Luke's family and a lawsuit that's determined to destroy them. 

With their future family on the line, can these two finally overcome family law and retrieve the love they were destined to find?

Compelling

This is a compelling story. As the title suggests, family is at the heart of it...whether by blood or by families that are made. Then we can add a gripping plot that kept me in its thrall from start to finish. As with Book 2, Playing Daddy, omega Luke has to find the strength to overcome all the difficulties in his background before he can find real happiness. Lawyer Jason is so sweet and always supportive of both Luke and Caleb. How he is with Harvey is the icing on the cake.

I particularly enjoyed the turnaround in attitude of Dom. From copying oldest brother Joe, he finally develops his own opinions that he isn't afraid to voice. I was hoping that he had a book of his own, but I couldn't find one.

David Loan narrates the book in an effective manner. It did take me a while to get used to his style because he narrates quickly at times, but his portrayal of Caleb is excellent and totally won me over.

Family

I received this audiobook as a freebie. I had the kindle edition for a while but I hadn't got round to reading it yet.
Note this book is a non-shifter Mpreg.

The theme family runs through this story, whether immediate, the ones you make at work and the intimate relationship you develop

There are several stories Luke a nurse practitioner with a young son, Caleb, meeting up with his childhood sweetheart, Jason, now the hospital's senior lawyer trying to see if this was relationship which could be rekindled and trusted, Luke ex Steve back on the scene, Luke's brothers enmeshed in Luke's life who are supportive but restrictive, not seeing him as someone who can make decisions. Luke is trying to sort this out whilst having to come to work each day and run the gauntlet of medical activists against palliative care whose action gets more and more dangerous.

I found the storyline believable and quickly came to care for the central characters. Also, although for the most part, I did not approve of Luke's brothers, I can understand that family often think they they are the people who know you best and how interdependence can frame the idea that you have of yourself, your abilities and the right to choose to do something that may just be for you can restrict your choices. Unfortunately, the activists were close to most of our daily experience whether personal or through the lens of the media, where people think that their beliefs override the rights of others.

Although it not the first in the series it is the first that I have listened to and you can see that many of the relationships go beyond just being good colleagues, another family. I would read/listen to another book in the series.

I wasn't sure about David Loan's narration in the first chapter but he grew on me as the characters developed and I would listen to him again.

Narration needs help

The story is good, intriguing and sweet with some deplorable characters but the narration is wooden and disjointed making it a difficult listen.

Sweet with a little suspense

I really enjoyed this book. The narrator does a wonderful job. The characters go through struggles which make them life-like and likable. I liked how the characters grew through the course of the book.

It Takes a Village to Save a Child

Family Law is an intense story, with the sharpest edges only slightly dulled. It explores the rights of divorced spouses, the responsibilities of the child guardian parent, and the consequences of being the parent with less legal standing.

An innocent child, kidnapped to make a point by the local religious faction, is thrown into a life that he did not want. Old enough to know that he was taken from his family, he was punished by the couple who illegally "adopted" him when he insisted his dads would come for him. The boy's childlike faith in his family kept him rebelling against his captors.

Silver Oak Medical Center is a safe place to recover and heal, and has legal counsel available for those patients who need it.

Family law is at the heart of this story as the characters try to twist the law for their own purposes. Various aspects of law enforcement work together to find the kidnapped child, and place him in a safe environment.

Narrator David Loan leads his audience through the fear, terror, depression, anguish, and villainy the characters display. Despite the tension of the story, it does have a satisfying HEA.

I am hooked on this series

I wish I could write a review as well as the ones that precede this one by the previous reviewer's under the "Book Review Page" Mr. Bate's has out done himself with this series. The depth of the character development is outstanding, they are so realistic, the plot/story line is so authentic; it's like something you would expect to read in the news paper's or hear on the radio or the tv news. I was hooked from the first few pages of the book and even more by the narration by Mr. Loan. His crisp clear voice made for easy listening and real enjoyment of the over all story. I would highly recommend this series of books/Audible series to anyone who wants to be swept away into a realistic adventure full of drama, twists, turns, love and of course sex.

Narration strange and robotic!

Listen to the preview first if you can get through that then this will be a four star listening experience for you.
The book was better in print. The narration was robotic, my kindle fire voice had more feelings. Sorry but it was very hard to listen too.
Disappointed since Aiden Bates is one of my favorite m/m pregnancy romance.

Great continuance of this story

I've really enjoyed this series. Reading the books and or listing to them.
This one I listen to.
I enjoy these two characters, the way Luke and Jason found each other again. The depth of each characters, Luke's brothers, the dog.
I could really get involved with all the stories surrounding these main people, The why, the how. It was all very interesting.

The Narrator was new to me, but did a great job capturing all the tones and voices.

Luke & Jason

Luke has been raising Caleb by himself. His brothers are awful and treat him horribly to keep him at home and downtrodden. Jason remembers Luke fondly and wishes for him and Caleb in his life. There is so much happening in their lives, making hopes at reconnecting slim. The narrator pace was odd and plodding.

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
