Book Blurb

Ben and Levi have their lives planned out--and then the phone rings, and suddenly they are fathers.

Happily married couple Ben and Levi have an amazing life--great careers, a loving dog, and a home they made their own in the little town of Mapleville. Then they receive the call that changes everything. Ben's cousin, a single omega with a baby, has passed away leaving behind his baby son, Tobias. Ben and Levi don't think twice about welcoming the child into their home. Only problem is--they have no idea how to be fathers, how to balance their careers with parenthood, how to even change a diaper.

PhD Candidate Cory works hard to get further in his education than most omegas ever achieve. He is this close to presenting his PhD thesis in child psychology and becoming Dr. Reeves when his academic life blows up. Cory's advisor has never pretended to like or appreciate him, but Cory never expects him to outright dismiss months--years of hard work without so much as a perusal simply because he is an omega. After having words, Cory walks away needing not only a new advisor, but also a new job. It looks like his dreams are about to go up in smoke.

When Ben's client, Maria, suggests they look into getting a nanny after they are put on waitlists at the local daycares, the couple becomes unsure. Do they really want a stranger helping raise the child they already love as their own, especially when the candidates are less than ideal?
But then Cory arrives--knowledgeable, sweet, well-liked by Tobias, and an all-around perfect candidate. If only they weren't attracted to him both physically and emotionally. As time marches on, the three become closer and closer until they decide to risk their hearts and see if a happy marriage of two has room for a third.

Hiring their Manny Omega is a sweet with knotty heat MMM male pregnancy romance with true love, an adorable baby and another soon on the way, and a guaranteed HEA. It is set in the town of Mapleville and can be read as a standalone. 

Book Review

I have high hopes for this sixth installment in the series as it’s the first to feature a ménage and it appears to be a little longer than the others I’ve read. The blurb certainly pulled me in as I could easily imagine the cluelessness that Ben and Levi had in terms of raising a baby, plus I’m always on the ready to defend an omega from being abused and Cory’s situation certainly indicated some serious prejudicial circumstances.

“But this child-raising thing was terrifying. You had to make sure they ate enough, but not too much, you had to keep them safe and loved and warm and dry and healthy, and it was a little bit overwhelming.”

I giggled a bit through the first two, completely unsuitable, candidates for the nanny job Ben and Levi advertised for as it reminded me of some true dingbats I interviewed in my day. *grins* Regardless though, Cory turns out to be a perfect match and not just with little Tobias. Both Ben and Levi have to keep reminding themselves that he’s their employee no matter how incredible he smells and Cory has to keep giving himself a talking to about them being his bosses and married. It was cute and funny to watch them all tripping over each other.

This has most definitely been my favorite of the series so far! These two alphas are sexy, hot, and way protective… which just equals even more sexiness in my opinion. Cory is strong, determined, and certainly deserving of the love and family he found. It was beautiful watching this throuple come together and seeing Tobias go through so many of his milestones. There was laughter and love abounding. I’m really looking forward to the next in the series as I hope the authors can keep this momentum going.
