Publisher's Summary

Thorne isn't ready to fall in love. His wife has been gone for only two years; he's still a grieving widower. Most days, he's not sure if he'll ever be ready to open his heart again. A simple, quiet existence with his beloved son, Mason, will have to be enough for him - and when it's not, he's got his friends in the Howling Hills pack to take up the slack.

Omega Logan is trying hard just to stay afloat. Not only has he just been made redundant at his job, his beloved Nan is quickly slipping away into the hereafter. When she passes, he will lose not only the last of his family but also the roof over his head. He's running out of options...until fate steps in, taking the form of a child's lost stuffed elephant.

Returning the stuffed animal to his owner gives Logan a sense of purpose - and a job. Thorne needs a manny to care for Mason during the day. Logan needs an income. That Thorne is the hottest alpha Logan has ever met doesn't even matter, because Thorne is obviously straight...isn't he?

When Logan's heat hits unexpectedly, the tentative feelings between the two men burst into something deeper - something richer. Fate has given Thorne a second chance at love and family...but with his heart on the line, will Thorne choose the specter of his past? Or a brighter, happier future?

Knot the Manny is a wolf shifter mpreg romance audio book with a guaranteed happily ever after. It is the third audio book in the Howling Hills Heat series, where finding your fated mate isn't just a dream - it's destiny.

Every experience, no matter how bad it seems,

Holds within it a blessing of some kind. The goal is to find it. ~Buddha~
Returning the stuffed animal was a really sweet way to get this amazing relationship between Throne and Logan going. I adored Mason as well, what a sweetheart!!
The post that Logan did on shiftergram was freaking cute "Are you my best friend?" 🥰😭🥰
The way Logan was portrayed with his grounded, warm and kind personality was so perfect for Thorne. Especially since Thorne had so many inner battles to deal with from losing his wife. This story was amazing! Single dad meets nanny and heart gushing/melting moments ensue. I can't say enough good things about this book, just get it and lay off the sugar since this story is sweet enough!!
Randi has an amazing voice! I swooned every time his natural growl came through in his tone. His narration was perfect for Thorne and Logan, I was so drawn into this story and Randi really helped with that.

Thorne & Logan

I enjoy Randi’s narration and accepted this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

I love books where men find love with each other but I’m not one to seek out MPreg books because I have a hard time wrapping my head around them. But I’m a believer in love and this story where Thorne needs a Manny for his son Mason and finds him through a stuffed elephant toy finder is heart warming. Logan is a compassionate caregiver for Mason and has been dealt situations that left him seeking a job and a place to stay at the same time as Thorne needs a caregiver for his son. There is a lot of emotional issues in this book and the author does an awesome job of expressing them with these characters and it is a great book.

Randi does an excellent job of reflecting the emotions that all of the characters have and helps one keep involved in the story.

A lost stuffed toy can lead to happiness

First I'll have to admit to speeding up the audio in order to tolerate the narrator. Guess "tolerate" is too strong a word but doing so made the audio book more enjoyable. Now back to the book itself. The story line was not up to what I would expect from Liam Kingsley but I did enjoy it. There could have been more sex scenes with emphasis on intimacy although this is Thorn's first experience with another man so there is some leeway on that. Overall, I did like the book and would recommend it if you are reading or listening to the series.

Saccharin sweet

This story was so sweet it became boring. The toddler, Mason, helped me to bear it. The first sex scene was about 2hrs into the story, and the last one occurred about 30 min before the end. The scenes were relatively brief and weren't explicit. A body part was referred to as "down there" to limit explicitness.

The narrator was okay, but there wasn't enough voice difference between the M & M leads, Thorn and Logan. That was a constant problem. And Logan's "voice" was often over-exaggerated and sounded like a higher octave voice often used to talk to kids.

Enjoyable Story With Displeasing Narration.😔

I'm a huge fan of Liam Kingsley, and have listened to many of his books which I have throughly enjoyed. This one as well. T & L's story was sweet even though I would have handled some situations differently, it was still a gratifying story. What wasn't gratifying was the narration of Randi Johnson. It was very difficult trying to decipher the 2 main characters voices. He didn't change them. At one point I had almost listened to the whole chapter until I realized it was the other character speaking instead of the one I thought.😣No disrespect to Randi Johnson, but, he needs to work on his characters voices. That being said, I still recommend this book.

3.5 Stars

I was kindly given a code for the audiobook in exchange of review.
This story was very, very sweet. Like a vat of syrup just rolled over me kind of sweet. We have single dad Thorne struggling to raise his absolutely, adorable son Mason. And devoted omega Logan looking for a job in childcare. Their paths meet and we are met with sweet family moments and bonding. As cutesy as I think everything is I really don't think it was romantic. Thorne and Logan don't have a lot of one on one time and when they do its hardly swoon worthy. Perhaps I would think different if Thorne had made a big romantic gesture rather than just saying sorry.
Regardless, the cute factor remains. If you're super into single parents finding love and blended families then this is the book for you. The wolf-shifter angle was very low played so if that's not your thing then no worries here.
I thought the narrator did an excellent job, especially with the childish voice of Mason.

Sweet Story with an HEA

Very sweet story. A tough but incredibly sweet widowed alpha and his son find a happy ending with their manny. Told from alternate points of view, Liam Kingsley does a nice job with this one.

I always enjoy Randi Johnson's narration and he delivers a fine performance.

Can be a standalone

I haven’t read the rest of the series but I fully understand everything happening in this book. There were some other characters that obviously were MCs in this series and it’s set up to introduce the next two MCs at the end of this one.

I have one (ok many) pet peeve in books. It’s when the wrong character’s name is used. As I don’t know if it was the Author or narrator who made the mistake I took a star off both areas (only one in total).
The story gave some really good plot points but they weren’t followed by the author, they seemed to concentrate on the one same issue the whole time, solving but then bringing it back up time and again.
The narrator got the voices confused a few times and that was confusing to the story.
If you like full on fluffy, just about instead love and people thinking cause they love a kid they love their parent/career, then you’ll love this.

Thorn saves Logan

Thorn is a widow. Logan comes in as the manny to take care of Mason. His boss is straight but they click. I really loved the elephant save and the cute way the narrator portrays the kids. The romance is also cute. Adorable actually.

Really sweet

I really enjoyed this story. I love shifter m/m, but must admit I'm not usually one for mpreg as often I find omegas are far too baby obsessed for my liking. This book doesn't overdo that angle however. This is a really sweet story, with some mild angst and a really lovely meetcute of our two MC's over a stuffed toy elephant.
This book introduced me to both the author and the narrator. Randi Johnson's narration was lovely - a hot, growly alpha, and a sweet, shy(ish) omega. I could easily hear the differences between supporting characters as well, which is really important to me.
I think this could have been a slightly longer story - improved by the drawing out of the pregnancy angst, to make the listener feel a bit more heartache before the resolution and HEA. Other than that, this was fab. I'd listen again.

a good easy listen

I was gifted the audio file of this book.

This is book three in the Howling Hills series. I have not read or listened to the others, but I would like to, if only to get a better sense of this author, and the way he tells his tales.

Thorne is grieving still, after two years. His wife passed away giving birth to their son, Mason. He’s not looking for anything with anyone, but he needs someone to look after Mason while he works. Losing the blue stuffed elephant bought Logan into Thorne’s world. Logan needs a place to live, and a job. That Logan is an omega and Thorne an Alpha shouldn’t make much difference, should it? When Logan’s heat hits at the most inopportune time, all bets are off, and Thorne starts to question a great deal.

On the whole, I did enjoy this little tale of the manny falling in love with not only his charge, but also said charge’s daddy. It’s one of those books that slaps itself firmly and squarely on the “hang over” shelf. Both from a book induced one, and an alcohol induced one!

Logan falls fast and hard for Thorne, but Thorne takes a far longer and windy path to admit his feelings. He is riddled with guilt over his wife, and what he is beginning to feel for Logan, a MAN. It takes a two year child to make Thorne see he may have lost Logan, before he was ever his.

It’s not overly explicit, but then again, it doesn’t need to be. It’s only short and you can only cram so much in 150 pages, 4 hours 30 minutes, but what is here is right and proper for THIS book. There is no violence.

What I LIKED, very much, about this book, was while these guys are shifters, wolves to be exact, there is very little emphasis on that fact. Thorne refers to his wolf from time to time, and his pack, and he shifts all of 2 times in the book. I liked that the wolf parts of Thorne and Logan took a back seat to the emotions of Thorne and Logan. Really, really liked that!

Randi Johnson narrates.

This is the first of his work I have listened to. I did enjoy it, for the most part, like the book, there were just one or two little niggles, for me.

Ordinarily I will choose a male narrator because they have a deeper reading voice. I have a hearing loss that is specific to higher pitch speech tones, as women’s voices tend to be. This is a personal choice and I am in no way dissing the wonderful female narrators!

But Johnson’s ‘reading’ voice is quite high and it took some time for me to get used to it to properly enjoy his narration. It does mean, though, that NEXT time, I won’t have such a hard time getting used to his voice, cos I already have done.

Also, while Thorne and Logan’s voices are very different, the others who are given a voice tended to be very similar and I struggled to keep up in multi person conversations.

Still, not a bad job, just not a brilliant one. I have a couple of other of Johnson’s work to listen to after my current listen, so I haven’t written him off just yet.

3.5 stars for the story
4 stars for the narration
