Listening Length: 9 hrs and 20 mins
Riley Sheridan has it all – loving family, college football career, and good looks. The only thing he’s missing is a relationship with the one person he can never have. As a teenager, Riley met Ambrose Whitlock precisely once and knew, without a doubt, that he wanted to be with him. The next time Riley saw Ambrose was at his alpha uncle’s wedding – as an omega groom.
Ambrose Whitlock-Harlow tried to love the husband his father arranged for him to marry, but Jacob was demanding, borderline cruel, and more focused on his political career than his young husband. Jacob leaves when, after several years, Ambrose doesn’t become pregnant.
One stormy night Ambrose’s life is turned upside down by Riley returning to town with an abandoned dog he found on the highway. Riley doesn’t know where to take the mutt, and Ambrose is well-known for his work at the local animal shelter. It doesn’t take Riley and Ambrose long to pick up the fragile relationship they started years ago.
The more time Riley and Ambrose spend together, the faster they fall in love. Not everyone approves, especially when Ambrose becomes pregnant with Riley’s child. The divorce isn’t official yet, and Jacob threatens to take away everything Riley and Ambrose built together.
This 92,000-word story is the third book in the Cherry Hollow Series.

A beautiful and healing second-chance romance!
I loved this one! I felt it was more in-depth and serious than the previous Cherry Hollow stories and dealt with serious issues such as bullying, domestic violence, and consent. Ki and Meg approached these issues with such heart, care, and respect you can feel the love and growth of Ambrose as he discovers himself in this story and overcomes his past and stands up for himself and what he wants.
There were some surprising twists in this story and I loved every moment. I raged with Riley, cried with Ambrose and fell in love with them and their fur babies. I loved the whole story and feel like this might be the best Cherry Hollow couple yet! I loved that Ki & Meg didn’t shy away from the hardships Riley and Ambrose had to face, not just from their families but from life in general. Sometimes life is hard and I enjoyed that Ki and Meg kept it real!!
I loved that Riley was able to have a second chance with Ambrose and with all that they’d gone througbh I loved their happily ever after!! I loved this story and I highly recommend the whole Cherry Hollow series!!
As for the narration, Bump is a new narrator to me but I thought they did a fantastic job! Great overall narration but I particularly liked the main character narrations, I felt they matched the characters perfectly and was wonderfully emotive when needed. I also enjoyed the voices he used for the mothers too. I must say, as an Aussie, he did butcher the Aussie accent to smithereens but I find that hilarious. A true Aussie accent is hard, so good try mate and thanks for the English/Crocodile Dundee impression for happy-go-lucky Luke, I loved it LOL!

Narrated by Barney Parkwynne
Listening Length: 6 hours and 33 minutes.
Sheriff Trent Miller was happy with his perfect little life. Being a 36-year-old omega with no partner or family suited him just fine, until it all changed. When he ran out of his heat-suppressant pills and his doctor refused to prescribe more, he had his first heat in years. Around the same time, a young alpha who drives him crazy started working as his partner.
Lawson Fisher hated Cherry Hollow. He only returned to his small hometown to help his papa when his dad was diagnosed with cancer. Working alongside Sheriff Miller was frustrating at the best of times, but when Trent went into heat, Lawson felt it was his duty to help him through it, like any good alpha. Besides, he couldn’t seem to keep his hands off Trent.
The more time Lawson spends with Trent, the more he realizes the omega isn’t as bad as he first thought. When they find out Trent’s pregnant, both their lives change. They need to decide the best thing to do for themselves and their baby, especially since not everyone in town is rooting for them to have a happily ever after.

Brodie Miller is an alpha who has had a rough year living in the city. His omega maxed out his credit cards and left him high and dry. The failed relationship sends Brodie running for a free room at home and the familiar comfort of small town living in Cherry Hollow. He finds a serious job, and a side hustle as a bartender, to start digging himself out of trouble.
Porter Eastwood was born into an influential, Cherry Hill family. He never missed out on anything money could buy. Entangled in the Eastwood family business, Porter is unhappy with his job, and if that isn’t enough to make him miserable, he’s a failed omega who has never been in heat.
When Porter finds himself infatuated with the new bartender at his favorite drinking spot, sparks fly, and they tumble their way into bed. Much to Porter’s surprise, it sends him into his very first heat. Brodie steps up to the challenge, the first man to make Porter feel truly cared for, but their amazing chemistry can’t stop reality from creeping in. Porter is still an Eastwood, and Brodie didn’t grow up on Cherry Hill.
Porter soon realizes he made a serious mistake during his heat, and a baby is on the way. Brodie’s day job has him delving into the seedier aspects of the Eastwood empire. With Brodie getting closer to finding out if the Eastwoods are involved in illegal activity, and Porter carefully counting down days until he might start to show, will they be able to make their relationship work?
