Summary

An omega with a mission. An alpha sworn to serve and protect. And an outbreak that will change both of their lives forever.

Dave Stanek has spent the past decade of his life trying to atone for his family’s sins. While his parents bilked thousands out of their life’s savings and tried to bring him into the family business, Dave has built a successful career in medicine as an infectious disease specialist at Silver Oak Medical Center.

Ken Sykora has seen a lot during his time in the Army and during his years on the force. When someone finds a vial at the scene of a meningitis outbreak, he’s obliged to consult with the Infectious Disease Specialist at Silver Oak Hospital.

When Dave is assigned a meningitis case one evening, he finds himself face to face with the most attractive alpha cop he’s ever seen – and neck-deep in a biological terror case.

Ken shares Dave’s attraction, notwithstanding the doctor’s superiority complex. Despite the gravity of the case they’re working, their mutual desire proves too much to contain. But when a night of pleasure leads to unintended consequences, they’ll have to decide if they can overcome their differences and build a life together – while catching a killer.

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

Well thought out

I thoroughly enjoyed both the well thought out storyline and the narration. Dave and Ken gelled from the start, and the early pregnancy news and Ken's concern for Dave made this even more pleasurable. The only (little) niggle I have is that this is Book 6 and yet clearly takes place before others in the series.

Anyway, I love Kaeomakana Tiwanak's irrepressible style and his many character voices. He narrates quickly, but I never miss anything and so it works.

Disappointing

I lasted about 20 minutes trying to listen to this book. The production of this audiobook was so bad I could not continue. The recording had a metallic sounding reverb, as if the recording was done in someone's backyard storage shed. The narrator's voice had little to no animation with very little change in pitch or inflection. I was still trying to get into the story when the last word of occasional sentences started being clipped short. I gave up when there was a garbled section where two or more recordings were superimposed on one another. No one would expect this title to be literary, but I did expect a professionally polished performance. I will be returning this book.

Like minded men

Infectious disease specialist Dave Stanek has a lot of family history to overcome. Ken Sykora is a staunch defender of the public. These two men both excel in their chosen fields. A meningitis outbreak, brings these two together. Ken is sent to Silver Oaks Medical Center to investigate the meningitis outbreak. Ken has some misguided opinions about Dave, based on his family history.As the two men work together and get to know each other, They become close. This closeness leads to a child. What I found most appealing about the story was Aiden’s character development. The interactions of the main characters, combined with the plot development makes you want to listen until you figure it all out. I highly recommend Infectious Love. It is another great addition to the Siver Oaks series.

Narration strikes again

So I've been working my way through this series and have toughed it out with this particular narrator who has been really pretty bad so far but this one started out ok, not great by any means but better than previous in the series until we meet up with Dr. Idoni, for some reason Tiwanak thinks he's a deranged southern grandmother or something it's just horrible and kills it for me considering how pretty serious as a a character he is or at least that was how he came off to me from his own story. It's a shame because it's actually a pretty good series, you might want to just read it yourself though

Another great book!

I really enjoyed this book as I have the entire series. This is a pretty low-angst book. The characters are believable, and you pull for them to figure everything out. I would recommend.

Viral Homicide is a Thing

When an unexplained outbreak of meningitis hits the town, Silver Oak Medical Center is overwhelmed with contiguous patients. With outbreaks coming in waves, the Sheriff's office sends out a deputy to investigate.

Vials of the virus were discovered at a nursing home, and an apartment complex. Working with the hospital's infectious desease expert, it is found to be a deliberate case of murder.

Despite the urgency to find the culprit behind the deadly outbreaks, there is time for two people working closely together to begin a relationship.

Narrator Kaeomakana Tiwanak, a favorite of the author, builds the tension between a deputy trying to find the viral source and a doctor trying to stop the desease from spreading.

Dave & Ken

Dave stands up for what is right, and this recent outbreak will prove this again. Ken is the sheriff assigned to uncover who is purposefully exposing people to an infectious disease. They work great together professionally, Ken needs to learn to trust Dave and put his Alpha tendencies aside. Not a big fan of the narrator, but Carter was only in a quick scene because he make his Tennessee twang sound horrific.

Best series of books I have read in a long time!

This book is an outstanding example of Mr. Bates writing skills. His character development, oblivious subject research and plot just flows so effortlessly that you almost feel like it is a real story torn from the front pages of the news or The good Lord forbid the latest terrorist plot! I was glued to his book from page one till the very end and when I connected my kindle to my car and listened to Mr. Tiwanak narration while I drove to Philadelphia it was a miracle that I got where I was going. I was so engrossed in this book that I do not remember anything about the trip at all. And that's not good as it is usually a 3 & 1/2 hour drive with construction from my home to my cousins and it took me 3 hours & 5 minutes. Don't know how or what I did to get there in that time frame. (It was a Sunday, maybe there was no construction, who knows) And I don't want to know! Anyway, please I am recommending this wonderful written series of books to anyone who enjoys a truly well written series of books full of love, true feelings, down to earth heart felt stories etc. An avid reader/listener in Rock Tavern, NY.

A great plot

I really liked the storyline in this one: it's interesting, informative, and with lots of suspense. And both, Dave and Ken, are great characters, driven, focused and smart.

The romance has a good pace, neither of them rushes into a commitment when Dave gets pregnant, nor they run away screaming. They both act with maturity and decided to keep things going on and see where they lead them.

I knew who was the bad guy from the beginning, though. Nevertheless, this wasn't, IMHO, the main point of the story, so it didn't spoil it for me.

Kaeomakana Tiwanak does a good job with the narration.

Eye Opening

Eye Opening storyline. Medical story's with Facts to use in everyday life are very interesting to me. Keep me listening and waiting to see how it ended to the very end. Aiden Bates is an excellent Author.
