This book is smut on steroids with a romantic centre

Skydive by Roe Horvat

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

I love Roe’s ability to mix the erotic with the poignant, the heat with the heart and oh boy does he do that in this one.

It’s an mPreg omegaverse world, I think it’s maybe connected loosely to his other omegaverse series because it mentions Dalton City, but it’s a complete standalone and reveals the interesting secret that dragon shifters exist!

As with Roe’s other omegaverse works, this book is smut on steroids, there’s knotting, heat breeding, fisting references, and dirty talk.

Here we also have the added bonus of a fated mates story. Ernest has been looking for his mate for years and, at the relatively old age of 35, is on the verge of giving up when he meets Lawrence.

What starts off as a single epic encounter at a New Year’s Eve party rapidly turns into a full on bonding experience which sees Lawrie having to come to terms not only with the existence of dragon shifters but his changing status as a Dragon’s Mate.

While I adored the relationship between Ernest and Lawrie, this one didn’t fully captivate me like Roe’s other omegaverse worlds have and I think that’s more because, for me, the dirty talk and smuttish behaviour from Lawrie seemed to develop instantly from nowhere, rather than him becoming more confident and relaxing into his relationship with Ernest.

It’s a minor point, it doesn’t spoil the narrative overall, which also has a nice secondary plot involving espionage and sabotage at the company Lawrie works for and where Ernest is a consultant, and I felt very satisfied with the romance at the heart of the story.

I’m intrigued by Lawrie’s boss Davidson and I’m really hoping he gets his own cinnamon bun character to pull him out of the cold and lonely life he’s stuck in.
