Summary

When Rhys returned to his hometown, he thought he’d escaped his abusive cultist husband, but shortly after settling back into Oceanport, he discovers he’s pregnant - from his ex. Determined to give his baby a good life and to do it without his ex’s knowledge, Rhys needs a job. Luckily,
his brother’s wedding planner needs a manny. Which sounds perfect, until Rhys shows up for the interview and he realizes his new boss used to be his secret childhood crush. 

Ethan spends his life planning everyone else’s happy ever afters - too bad he can’t make that work for his own life. He certainly never planned for his wife to walk out on him, or to end up the single father of two boys, yet somehow that’s where he’s found himself. But if it’s hard on him, it’s worse for his sons. Emotionally wounded, 3-year-old Caleb’s struggled in every daycare Ethan’s tried, and 12-year-old Nathan’s chased off every nanny Ethan’s hired in between. Ethan needs someone special, who can bridge the growing gap between him and the boys and make them whole again. 

In Rhys, Ethan finally finds that someone. But as he watches Rhys slowly knit his family back together, he finds himself falling for the courageous young omega. Only, Rhys is still healing himself from his last relationship, and so is Ethan. It looks hopeless. But Rhys is done running, and Ethan has a plan - can they create their own happy ending from the ashes of their past?

Sweet and great narrated

This was my first book by Ann-Kathrin Byrde and it won't be my last. I liked the Omega Rhys coming back to Oceanport after he left his husband. In search of a job, he meets Alpha Ethan, whose wife has left him with two children. In order to balance his job and the children, he is looking for a nanny, which is not so easy, because many left Ethan after a few hours. The characters were lovingly portrayed, especially I liked the children, who behave very realistically. But also the pets are cute. If you are looking for a romantic Alpha and Omage story, this is the right place. John Solo did a really good job with his narration and I enjoyed listen to him.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4-5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me. 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, I’m over the half, 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

So sweet and entertaining

This was a nice and relaxing listen. I enjoyed all of the characters, the brothers, the children and the pets. It warmed my heart when a down on his luck Omega could find happiness again. Not all of the Alphas were arrogant and selfish, some were kind and caring like Ethan. Rhyce was lovely, and he wove his magic on the whole troubled family , making everyone love him , even the troubled teenager and infant. It was a lovely family led story. I really enjoyed the narration, it was so good , John Solo can do different characters in a story very well.

Low angst, very sweet

This is a great story if you are looking for a fun, romantic, fluffy listen. John Solo does a fantastic job with the narration. There is very little angst, lots of family values, other couples in love, and friendship in the small town of Oceanport. I enjoyed how the children were portrayed as real and troublemakers, adding to the story instead of being angels.

Pleasant, cute, very likeable!

Rhys is pregnant and back in Oceanport after leaving his deeply religious bigoted husband. He takes a job as a manny to look after single father, Ethan’s adorable kids. Rhys has never been good socially and I loved his uncertain, socially awkward but very kind personality. Since Ethan’s wife had left him, I was expecting a straight-to-gay or GFY journey, but Ethan didn’t struggle for a second. I liked the “revenge of the exes” storylines, with both Rhys and Ethan struggling to disentangle themselves. Overall: pleasant, cute, and very likeable. 🎧 John Solo does a great job narrating this series.

Music to my ears 😍

I love the Oceanport Omegas series! i almost forgot that Raphael is also from Oceanport and its sweet how Nathan started to like him. Anyway, I have read the book before and there is just something different when I hear it narrated. John Solo did a wonderful job bringing all the characters to life.

Sweet, healing story

This is my first book in the series, and I decided to dive right in rather than listen/read to the other books first as I've been on a nanny kick lately. While there was a large cast of characters and a few mentions of events in other books I didn't feel like I missed anything but jumping into this one. Though I will definitely be going back and listening to the whole series! The book was well written and my only gripe was how quickly the troubled Nathan went from terrorizing nanny's to trying to get the new "manny" into his dad's bed. Regardless it was still well done and I enjoyed the sweetness between the main cast of characters. As always John Solo does an amazing job.

Have Your Back

Another great Oceanport story. Reese is recovering from his marriage and the mental games that were played. Ethan has his own past baggage. Both are kind of in a limbo between the past and present. But there is a past that goes back even further and that seems to open up more between them. Together they each have the strength to put there past behind them and move toward a future together. I like how Ethan has Reese's back without question. His willingness to be less than typical shows his real strength.

Sweet & Tender

This is a really sweet romance and I'm so glad that Rhys gets his well deserved HEA. Ethan and Rhys are just super cute and perfect together and I love how open and willing Ethan is to accept Rhys' child. I really enjoyed watching Rhys bring Ethan and his sons together as they all work towards creating a wonderful family. The narrator did a great job with the story and I really like his character voices. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

wonderful story

The Wedding Planner's Manny is book five in the Oceanport Omegas series by Ann-Katrin Byrde and like the previous books in the series, delivers a wonderful and we'll written story with loveable characters. Ethan is a loving Alpha that shows omega Rhys that not all Alphas are horrible lime his ex, and is willing to have a relationship with Rhys even though he carries another man's child. Rhys helps heal Ethan and his 2 sons from the scars of an ex's abandonment. Together they build a family. Definitely a recommended book. Audiobook is narrated by John Solo. I loved how well the personalities shine through with each characters' personalized voice. It's easy to listen and lose yourself in the story. Fantastic job!

Rhys gets his forever

I don't know whose ex was worse- Rhys 's or Ethan's! Both were master manipulators , devious liars, and users beyond belief. I was livid with Laura's well timed return and her machinations. My heart ached for Nathan and Caleb who were pawns in Laura's game. It was glorious when Ethan showed up at the restaurant and stood by Rhys and later told the truth about Laura!!! It was good to see Rhys grow and get a backbone. I loved this couple. The narrator's voices were great and made the story come to life.
