Summary

Cole Bradford needed a new start for him and his unborn child. After leaving his ex, he goes to the two people who could center him: his parents. Promising himself that he would solely focus on raising his child, he's completely blindsided by his sudden attraction for his parents' boss, Kane Cartwright.

Kane Cartwright's only focus is the successful management of his dude ranch, the Black Meadow. He's satisfied with his life as a bachelor and does not want the responsibility of a lover or children. Until the smart-mouthed New Yorker showed up on his ranch looking for his dads. And suddenly, Kane found himself attracted and wanting a man who's pregnant with another man's baby. 

This story is an omega-verse and non-shifter.

Home is where the heart is

This is narrated by Nick J. Russo who is one of my favourite narrators, so the opportunity to review this with a promo code seemed like a natural addition to my already extensive library, and love me a good Cowboy with a nice ranch too.
I very much enjoyed this sweet tale of an Omega who is running from a bad relationship and is pregnant, but finding his true Alpha where his dads live and work. I really like cowboys and ranches so this was a fun read with plenty of great characters. Great drama when the ex turns up and tries to make trouble for the new couple. Highly recommended for all lovers of Cowboys and Alpha/Omega love stories with a good dose of MPreg thrown in for good measure.

New start

I loved listening to this book as Cole decides to go to parents and meets their boss Kane. It was fun listening to them also sniping at each other until they got pushed together. They had some problems from Cole’s past to deal with. The narrator brought the story to life.

Smexy mpreg with hot cowboys and knotting

Cole is a young omega running from an abusive ex. He is bratty and immature, a little needy, but sweet. He is the kind of sweet that you can’t help but like. As he admits, he embraces his omega nature. Kane is the alpha love interest. He struck me as a bit more beta-like than an alpha. He runs his business with a firm, sensible hand and is well liked by his employees. Out of all of the characters, I adored Cole’s dads. Lol - Bill faints when he learns he will be a grandfather and Denny is a firecracker. They are the highlights of the story.

The narration was a little flat in the beginning. Part of that is due to the writing - it felt like a lot of third person narration - and the other part is due to the tone of voice Nick Russo used in the performance. I strained to figure out who was talking and thinking. All of that changes with the introduction of Kane. Lordy! That voice will set your panties on fire! Woo-hoo! You are guaranteed to fan yourself when you hit the sexy scenes. From that point on, it is easy to differentiate between the characters and you easily sink into the omegaverse.

So, even with the abusive ex hovering in the background, this is a sweet, low angst, smexy love story that has a satisfying HEA.

great book!

Cole ran away from his abusive boyfriend after finding out he was pregnant. He refused to let his child be raised in that sort of environment. He fled to the ranch his parents worked at, in hopes of finding some peace before continuing to run.
Kane is running his family ranch and meets Cole the day he arrives. There is an instant attraction but both men fight against it, causing some ripples in their interactions. One day, they stop fighting the attraction and connection building between them, what they find is something worth holding onto - family and forever. Now, they just need to overcome some obsticles, like a crazy abusive ex.

This is a great story and characters. I love the interaction between the two men and their families and friends. The story was sweet, but also sexy. Definitely recommend this book.

The audiobook is narrated by Nick J. Russo who does a fantastic job giving each character their own voice with personality shining through. Added to the experience of the story. Great job!

Two babies are definitely better than one my love

Awwww, so cute, fluffy and sweet! 😍 I really think cowboys and babies go together so well! 😉 My first Giovanna Reaves and I am hooked! 💜

Cole was trapped in an abusive relationship with a ruthless, violent and manipulative arsehole of an Alpha for a couple years but it’s not only him in the equation anymore. He’s beaten almost to death and found out he’s pregnant at the hospital. Thankfully, his abusive boyfriend was away and he has to run away for him and baby to survive. And what better place to find solace than in the arms of your loving parents? Now, he found himself at the black meadow ranch hoping for the warm welcome for the wayward son except .. his dads are not home. Kane Cartwright, the sole owner of a successful dude ranch, Black Meadow, thought he has an allergy towards commitment and relationship. But now, he’s in explicably attracted to that little mouthy omega who came looking for his parents. Kane knows Cole is trouble and the mouthiness is only the facade to cover his vulnerability. Cole is running from something and definitely hiding something. But Kane wants him anyway. And thus began the chase from a relentless cowboy who wants to catch a mouthy, bratty omega as his forever own.

Realistic, fluffy, sweet and emotional. 😌 Although this is Mpreg, this reads much more like a mainstream contemporary novel and I loved that little twist. Cole and Kane together are so sweet and boy, that bratty omega surely made the cowboy work for his prize. 😁 And they are so sexy together. 🔥 I also loved that little piece of angst and drama in the end because it tied up the book nicely with a bang. As always, Nick J. Russo did a fantastic job narrating the story and I really really enjoyed listening his lovely narration. Enjoyed this a lot! ❤️

Slow Burn

I love a really good story and this one disappoint. This a new to me author and I loved her style. It has a wronged liver, fated mates, some angst and a baby so what’s not to love. I liked the slow burn factor - they took their time but once they admitted their feelings it was on! The narrator did an amazing job bringing cowboy Cain to life and the rest of story. Well worth the listen and read!

Cowboy x Pastry Chef

I totally loved this story. Cole and Kane are complete opposites, but that works. Kane is your roughened Alpha cowboy that claims he doesn't need a mate, and Cole is the broke Omega pastry chef that was given a rough lesson when it comes to love. Neither are looking to get in a relationship but can't deny the chemistry between them. They not only have to get over the personal hang ups, but also protect Cole from his psycho ex before they can have their HEA.

Just okay

I was underwhelmed by this story. it was the one I liked least of the four that came in the bundle I volunteered to listen to. Kane Cartwright is the stereotypical cowboy and Cole Bradford is the pregnant omega he falls in love with. Cole's prickliness is merely a sign of his struggle to remain aloof from the man he is determined not to like. But they are mates, even if reluctant ones, and eventually -- a tad abruptly if you ask me -- Kane begins his assault on Cole's defenses that ends with them marrying each other. The conflict in the story, other than their snarkiness with each other, comes from the knowledge that the alpha from whom Cole made his escape, in the beginning, is on the loose and wanted for murder. The writer draws out the suspense of that plot detail until the penultimate chapter of the novel, but even that doesn't make this more than an okay story. And the narrator adds nothing extra, frankly.
