Superb second instalment in the Heat of Love series

Alpha Heat (Heat of Love #2)Alpha Heat by Leta Blake

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Leta Blake’s Slow Heat was one of my favourite reads last year and this follow-up is going on the favourites shelf too.

It’s a passionate, complex tale which delves further into the fascinating non shifter Omegaverse world she’s created in this series and I couldn’t put it down.

Since finding about Xan’s “unnatural” desires in book one, and seeing the spark with him and Urho, I’ve been dying for Leta to finish this story.

It’s every thing I hoped it would be, powerfully emotionally, brilliantly complex, thrilling and full of the incredibly hot and sexy scenes Leta has such a talent for.

The heat level is off the chart, there’s some fabulous dirty talk, a bit of lustfully executed light BDSM, lots of talk of heat and alpha knotting and a fantastic love story between three very different men.

It’s not a typical MMM, this isn’t a menage as such, but each of the men needs something unique they can only get from being part of a three.

There’s a couple of potential new story threads left open in this one and I’m seriously hoping we’re getting Ray and Vince’s unconventional relationship next and am intrigued as to whether Janus can be redeemed and given his HEA.

I love this series and I want more please 🙂

Intriguing and different take on the omegaverse trope

New Texas Mail Order Omega (Volardi Mpreg #3)New Texas Mail Order Omega by Tabatha Austin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I picked up this one to review, I didn’t realise it was the third in the series but I was able to read it without missing anything vital I’m sure.

I’d also never read this author before but I intend to go back and read the first two in the series at some point because I really loved both the unique take on the omegaverse and the world building.

This was a really good mix of sci-fi and historical Old West and it worked perfectly as the setting for the romance. I also liked the take on mPreg and the “biological alterations” which took place to allow Thomas to give birth.

The narrative was perhaps a tad untidy at times but I enjoyed the dynamic between both Helian and Thomas and the cast of secondary characters.

Sweet second chances alpha/omega romance

Tying the KnotTying the Knot by Casey Cameron

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5* I liked this one, no silly drama or angst thrown in for the sake of plot, just two men reconnecting after a childhood friendship.

Casey Cameron’s created an interesting twist on the alpha/omega dynamic usually found in shifter stories which is enjoyable to read. There’s the ascending and mating but not as much of the “mine, mine” emotions which can overpower a storyline and turn it into a one sided power play.

Fox was sweet, uncertain of his next steps after his alpha fiancee called off their wedding. Dustin was afraid of his alpha reactions to the man he’d never stopped thinking about since he’d left for catering college six years earlier.

It was nice to watch them waking up to the fact they’d never stopped loving each other. There was also a low slow burn with sex not really happening until the final quarter but when they finally did come together, it was passionate and emotional.

There a nice epilogue which glimpses into their future.
