Omega Reimagined volume 2

Omegas… reimagined

Owen’s dreams are crushed when Prince Devin, the alpha he gave his virginity and—he thought—his life to, severs their betrothal and sends him back to the Western Pack where he was born.

Donovan isn’t an omega. He’s an alpha—a big, competent, ferocious one. So why does he have an irresistible and shameful urge to submit to another alpha in the most painful and degrading ways possible?

Daisy has come to North Leland to pursue his calling as a sex worker. He’s a feisty, independent, and intentionally delectable piece of omega eye candy. The last thing he needs is an interfering sheriff.

North Leland’s fight for equality and against Prince Devin comes to a satisfy end in Omega Reimagined volume 2.

Omega Returned: Best friends Alpha Fortis and Beta Keesh have been charged with getting Owen safely back home, but as they travel through the woods together, the lust they feel for each other and for Owen ignites, forcing them to figure out which two of them belong together and who ends up alone.

Omega Replaced: Alpha Tarek isn’t ashamed of his taste for dominating other alphas. Now if only he and the rest of North Leland could teach the strong, stubborn, and submissive Alpha Donovan that it’s okay for him to be who he is.

Omega Redeemed: Sheriff Quoitrel is only trying to do his job, which is to enforce North Leland’s anti-prostitution laws. Why does Daisy have to be the most tempting morsel he’s ever tasted? And why does watching Daisy service other men make his own desires skyrocket?

Volume 2 of Omega Reimagined includes Omega Returned, Omega Replaced, and Omega Redeemed, all of which have been published separately. This is a non-MPREG universe.

Impossibly Fond

Cover for Impossibly Fond by Tanya Crhis shows a man with shaggy blue hair in front of a full moon

When a hostile leprechaun forces an inept wizard to flub the spell he’s casting on a mini-giant, the result can only be… fondness? Waltham has accidentally spelled Ian into liking him, and now his hostage/windfall, aka Mindy, insists he fix it before she’ll turn over the pot of gold she rightfully owes him.

Waltham’s figure is as stringy as his hair and his words are as sharp as his nose. He’s a selfish, greedy fledgling wizard with a ratty hat and a worse attitude. There’s no way someone as handsome and kindhearted as Ian would like him without magic in play. But as the three reluctant companions set out on a quest to assemble the ingredients for an anti-spell, a different kind of magic happens. Ian’s unflagging belief that Waltham is worthy of love makes Waltham begin to wish it were true.

There are grasshopper gonads to be collected, moonbeam crystals to be harvested, kitten tears to be wrung, and somewhere, at the end of the rainbow, a pot of gold to be collected. But if Waltham can overcome his upbringing and mend his ways, then maybe—once the spell has been lifted—something real will remain.

Excerpt:

The galoot raised Waltham’s elbow to his mouth and pressed the lightest of kisses to the scrape. His lips were surprisingly soft, very full and tender but probably carrying a veritable army of germs. Waltham withdrew his arm, and the galoot’s pucker faded into a pout, as if Waltham’s elbow were a piece of candy that’d been taken from him.

“Aw,” Mindy said. “I think he likes you.”

“I do,” the galoot agreed immediately. “I like you a lot.”

Surprising. Ego-gratifying, but surprising. People didn’t often take to him right away, what with the sharpness of his features and most particularly the sharpness of his tongue, but it was true that if they were going to like him at all, they liked him the better for not knowing him.

“What’s your name, you big galoot?” Mindy asked.

“Oh, I’m only a rather average-sized galoot," he demurred. "But I'm strong.” He flexed his biceps in illustration and Waltham nodded approvingly. Very strong.

“What’s your name?” Mindy repeated, as if she were talking to a small and stubborn child, and honestly the galoot wasn’t coming across as a creature of particular intelligence, considering how immediately he’d taken to Waltham who’d been trying steal his gold. Mindy’s gold. His gold.

“Ian.”

“A good name for a giant,” Mindy said.

“Do you think so?” Ian asked without taking his eyes off Waltham.

“It’s got giant right in it.”

“You mean that the other way around,” Waltham observed. “Ian is in giant. Giant’s not in Ian.”

“That’s so clever,” Ian said enthusiastically, as if Waltham had said something… clever. “I’ve had that name my whole life and never even noticed. Ian is in giant. You must be really smart.”

“But I’m the one who said it,” Mindy squealed. “I said it backwards, but you knew what I meant.”

“What’s your name?” Ian asked.

“Mindy,” Mindy answered, even though Ian had clearly directed the question to Waltham. “Hellooo, person talking down here. Look at me.” She fluttered her wings, raising herself up to eye level. Waltham put his hand on top of her head to push her back down. He was enjoying the attention. When you traveled with a green leprechaun in a pink tutu and matching wings, you got very little attention.

The best scene was the grasshopper hunt, it was more then hilarious. I laughed so hard. Waltham and his ignorance of things was so cute, especially when Ian knew things he didn't. They completed each other perfectly. Really, really loved this story, I couldn't put it down and read it in one-go. It was so good to be in this world with Ian& Waltham. Highly recommend it.

Overall, this is a surprisingly deep and emotional tale, whilst at the same time maintaining a funny, quirky nature. It is well written and sweeps the reader along with a real sense of direction. Although only one of the characters is human…basically, they all have a sense of solidity and realness that makes the book a satisfying read.

Whose plan wins? Is twenty days enough to make it from Connecticut to LA and from ex-stepbrothers to friends to happily-ever-after? Will Braxton’s stuffed bear, Mr. Lovey, find a real-life bear friend? Find out in this slow burn, friends to lovers, opposites attract, bi awakening, road trip romance in which there’s ONLY ONE BED.

Excerpt:

“You don’t mind being short, do you? I mean, since you’re gay and all. You don’t have that thing where you have to be the taller than your partner in heels.”

“When have you ever not been taller than your partner in heels?”

“Not me, but…” He shrugs. “It shouldn’t be about size, should it?”

“Gay guys care about size too. I mean—” I backtrack quickly, realizing what I just implied. “Some guys would like how big you are. It’s a thing.”

“Is it your thing?”

“Most of the guys I’ve dated have been about my size.” That’s not answering his question, but it’s as close as I’m going to get. “Muscle-heads tend to stick together.”

“Yeah? Seems a little narcissistic going for someone who looks just like you. Not that I don’t appreciate the work that goes into a physique like mine. It just doesn’t do anything for me in a sex way.”

“You don’t like guys at all, though.”

READ MORE

Craig reaches between us to grab a fresh beer. He spends a minute opening it, as though that takes concentration, then takes several swallows. I assume we’re going to drop that topic of conversation, but he surprises me by starting it again.

“I think I’d be more into a guy like you.”

If, you mean.”

“Sure. If. You’re cute.”

I don’t know whether to be flattered or insulted. Craig thinking I’m cute makes a little flutter of hope take wing inside me, but I can also guess he finds me more attractive than guys who look like him because, in his mind, I’m closer to being a woman.

I look nothing like a woman. I’m not a tall man, but I’d be on the tall side for a woman, and I’m not super built up top, but you can see the shape of my shoulders. I’m hairy where men tend to be hairy—not in copious quantities, but I’ve got a nice even coat on my forearms and calves and down my treasure trail. My features are male, and I dress like your average guy.

I’ve known guys who were campier or more femme, and I have no issue with them. I don’t like drawing rigid lines between male and female. But Craig saying he would prefer a guy like me feels like he’s putting me on one particular side of that line I don’t like to draw.

“Braxton?”

I realize I’ve gone silent and flash a smile at him, then hold out the marshmallow I’ve toasted to a perfect crispy brown. He takes this one with his fingers, though the way he licks them clean after is almost as distracting as his stick-fellatio technique.

“I didn’t mean to be inappropriate,” he says. “I wasn’t hitting on you or anything.”

“God, no. I didn’t take it that way.”

“Okay, well, good.”

He drinks his beer, and I roast my marshmallows. We gaze into the fire, listening to a chorus of crickets. Someone a few campsites over has music playing. The sound comes and goes with the wind, intruding sudden bursts of rap, like angry remarks thrown out by a passing stranger. The fire pops and crackles and Craig gets up to tend it, though there’s no need to build it higher. It’ll be burning for days already.

At some point we start talking again, about what we saw today and where we’ll go tomorrow, about anything except how attractive I find him and the subject of whether he finds me attractive in return, but later, in the dark of our tent, with three beers in me, I ask him, “Do you really think I’m cute.”

And he says, “Yeah, Braxton. I really do.”

I’m not sure why I wasn’t expecting to be pulled in quite as quickly as I was, perhaps it’s because I haven’t read much from this author to date. I also wasn’t expecting to laugh so hard my eyes teared up at times. In short, #20DaysToLA ended up being a lot of fun and one I’d definitely recommend.

Aiming High

Cover for Aiming High by Tanya Chris shows a man climbing on a bouldering wall

What they want most may be the one thing out of their reach.

Canadian rock climber Spencer Woolery has been training for the Olympics since before climbing was an Olympic sport. Dedication, determination, and strict adherence to a rigorous training regimen have gotten him to the summer games, but are they enough to elevate him to the podium? He’ll do whatever it takes to give himself the best shot, unlike American Flynn Loren, a.k.a. Flyin’ Flynn, who seems to succeed without making any effort at all.

Flynn loves climbing, but he hates being a professional climber. He’d rather be climbing real rock—outside in the sun having fun with his friends—than stuck indoors sweating over times and points and strategies. And he’d rather win Spencer’s heart than a medal, but that prize continues to elude him.

Against the backdrop of Olympic Village in Tokyo, Flynn and Spencer compete against each other and eighteen other men to see who’ll take home a medal and who’ll win something even greater than gold.

Note: this book takes place in an alternative universe where the Tokyo Olympics happened in the summer of 2020 as planned.

Excerpt:

“JUST A LITTLE,” Flynn prompted. He’d gotten his horse to water, but he couldn’t make him drink. “One tiny taste of mine.” He held out one of his mochi ice cream balls in an effort to tempt Spencer into trying it. Everyone else had bought a treat, even Mika who weighed about ninety-four pounds. Flynn didn’t know how much Spencer weighed, but whatever it was, it was perfect. Shame that professional comps had a shirts-on rule.

“You make bad influence,” Mika said with a wag of her finger. “He eat what coach say eat.”

“But he promised.” Flynn tried making puppy dog eyes at Spencer, and it actually worked. Spencer reached across the table and took the entire mochi ball from him. Good thing he’d bought two. He took a bite of the one he had left. “Ahhh. Cold.” And hard. He’d practically snapped a tooth off.

Mika giggled. “Ice cream.”

“Yeah, ice cream. I get it. We like ours a little softer back home.”

READ MORE

“The coating keeps it colder, probably.” Spencer had nibbled into his ball without breaking anything or screaming loudly enough to attract the attention of everyone in the store. “It’s good. The covering’s sort of… weird. Too chewy.”

“You’ve got some—” Flynn brushed at his own mouth to indicate where some of the starch from the coating had come off on Spencer, and Spencer licked around his lips in a circle that was about all Flynn could take without jumping him. He got out his phone and snapped a photo of Spencer with a mouth full of ice cream ball.

“Where are you posting that?”

“Instagram. Hashtag balls-are-amazing.”

Spencer rolled his eyes. “Then you’re answering the text I get from my coach in the middle of the night when he sees it.”

“Let’s make it worth it then.” He turned his phone around to get himself in the shot too and posted that picture with the hashtag breakfast-of-champions.

As always this author delivers incredibly realistic characters. I love that both Spencer and Flynn showed very different attitudes toward competition. The relationship between the two competitors had such depth to it. Having the backstory really helped draw that out and give the readers more perspective. Tanya Chris’ world-building was intricate and vivid. It felt very much like I was right there.

It was a captivating story that hit its mark. I fell in love with the characters and I enjoyed the unique take. I also appreciate how the author wrote rock climbing so that I could follow along with it, as I have no experience in that sport.

Joan on Amazon wrote:

Once again Tanya Chris has delivered a wonderful love story that takes place at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. This is a love story between Spencer and Flynn that has been in the making since they first met years ago when Flynn was 17 years old and Spencer 19. Their chosen career path made them competitors and the opportunity to finally get together and express how they felt was the journey the reader was taken on in this story. The friendly competition and team sportsmanship were demonstrated between the individual climbers and you could tell it was a tight knit community. Add in the disapproving coach and snotty teammate and you have the impediments to their love story. But love is love and the Olympic competition must go on with surprising results. Spencer and Flynn get their HEA and I loved how the story ended. Definitely a must read!

Macbandit on Amazon wrote:

This author has to be one of the most versatile writers. This is the first I’ve read of her mostly vanilla contemporary mm romances. I love her dark sexy romances the best but I have to say she knows how to put plenty of emotion and lovable characters into this story. These two climbers, Spencer and Flynn, have had an attraction to each other since they met when they were teenagers. It isn’t until the Olympics that they act on that attraction. I really enjoyed that while there is competition between the climbers there is mostly respect and friendship. I like the way she also points out even the great athletes have doubts about what they are doing. I highly recommend this author. I have never read a book of hers that I didn’t enjoy.

He sprinted for home but didn’t make it before a heavy weight slammed into him, driving him down into the grass. His struggle to free himself from an angry tornado of punishing appendages landed him on his back, looking up at a red-faced, sopping-wet Harper who had a knee planted firmly in the middle of his chest.

“You fucker.” Harper reared back like he was about to sock him.

Matt threw his hands up. “Not my face!” He needed his face. He had a costume party to go to Saturday night, and the hostess had promised him there’d be hot guys there.

“You fucking trashed my room. There’s water all over the fucking floor. My mattress is soaked.”

“It was just supposed to be some spray. I didn’t think the screen would pop.”

“You never fucking think.” Harper grabbed his shoulders and jerked them back and forth, so that Matt’s head bounced off the ground a few times.

“You’ll give me a concussion,” he complained through rattling teeth. Thank God Harper kept his lawn so nice and velvety. He wriggled his lower body in an attempt to escape the bruising force of Harper’s knee. Some guys he might like having on top of him riding him like a fucking cowboy, but not Harper Le Croix, not the guy who already knew how hot he was and didn’t need Matt confirming it, which he was about to do unless Harper either killed him or got off him.

Harper gave him a last good thump. “I’m serious this time, Felding. I’m putting in a restraining order. You won’t be able to get within fifty feet of me, and where will that leave you?”

“Fifty feet away from this line.”

Matt and Harper are the modern-day Hatfield and McCoy’s of their generation. They have been friends forever, and always their families have fought over a tiny piece of land. No one wants to give in. when Matt and Harper get their family homes will this feud continue? Well, these two reminded me of two kids fighting over the same toy. They were funny as heck. The chemistry makes it pure adult though. They have a lot of underlying tension. Might just be what this feud needs for it to stop. I always say make love, not war.


Omega Redeemed

Is Quoitrel really supposed to arrest the most entrancing omega he’s ever met?

As North Leland’s sheriff, Quoitrel is responsible for upholding pack laws. Laws which were enacted to protect omegas. Laws that definitely prohibit prostitution. This Eastern Pack immigrant doesn’t seem to understand that, desirable as he might be, Quoitrel can’t allow him to open a bordello. But if Daisy needs care, protection—or sex—Quoitrel would be honored to provide him with all of it.

Daisy came to Northern Pack territory to escape exactly this kind of law enforcement—the kind that harasses and impedes sex workers. If the Northern Pack grants omegas autonomy over their own bodies, doesn’t that include the right to sell them? Daisy thinks so, and some of North Leland’s ruling class agree with him, but how to convince the sexy sheriff who thinks he knows best?

As the battle to determine which of Head Alpha Marta’s two sons will succeed her comes to a head, Quoitrel is fighting another battle. He wants to claim Daisy for his own, but the more he learns about Daisy’s chosen profession, the more he realizes that this is what Daisy was meant to do. And the more he wants to watch him do it.

If you’re sex-work positive, if you enjoy hot voyeurism and consensual partner sharing, if you’ve been waiting for Prince Devin to get what’s coming to him, then this final story in the Omega Reimagined series is sure to satisfy.

“Is there a problem with my paperwork, Sheriff? I believe everything’s been filed.”

“Mm.” Quoitrel pulled the permit from his back pocket. “You gave your name as Daisy. You’re free to use whatever nickname you please, of course, but we’ll need your real name on the official documents.”

“My real name’s Daisy.”

“I doubt that’s what your parents named you.”

“Ooh, you got me. That’s not what my parents named me. But that’s what my name is now.”

“For legal purposes—”

“No.” For a moment, the omega’s face was hard—as determined as any alpha’s could be—but then it softened with another sweep of feathery soft eyelashes. “I had it legally changed, Sheriff. Promise.”

Quoitrel frowned. A name change suggested Daisy was running from something. Maybe a criminal record, but maybe a dangerous alpha. He decided to leave it.

“Well, welcome to the Northern Pack then, Omega Daisy. I hope we’re able to provide you with everything you need.”

“Aren’t you a doll?” Daisy cooed. He had the pinkest lips, a rosy contrast to the shades of brown and yellow that swirled through his skin and hair. He pursed them in a kiss, then raised his little hand to blow the kiss in Quoitrel’s direction. Quoitrel felt a wash of breath against his cheek as physical as if he’d been kissed directly.

“Is there anything else I can help you with today, Sheriff?” Daisy asked suggestively.

Quoitrel had half a mind to take him up on that suggestion, but there was still the matter of the building to discuss before he could dispense with official business and get down to being friends. Or playmates.

Omega Replaced

Alpha Donovan is certain about one thing. His work recovering missing omegas who’ve been separated from their rightful protectors is a service—to the alphas who hire him and to the omegas themselves. What he’s less confident about is his unconventional desire to be dominated by someone as strong as he is. No alpha is supposed to want that.

When Donovan arrives in North Leland, he expects it to be just another job. Find the omega, bring her home. Then he meets Judge Tarek, the gorgeous alpha determined to thwart his mission. Tarek disapproves of his job, but not his fantasies, which he’s ready and oh-so-able to fulfill.

Everything is backwards in this strange town. Wanting another alpha’s teeth in your neck is okay, but returning an omega to their rightful place isn’t? Donovan has a lot to learn, and if he can’t change his way of thinking fast enough, he’s going to lose what he’s never allowed himself to believe he could have.

Excerpt:

Take that alpha at the table, for instance. An omega might be lucky enough to belong to him, which wasn’t something I could do more than dream about. His hair fell in crystal white strands from his scalp, as if his head were snowing. It swung with his movements, giving his bulky figure the illusion of grace. I estimated his height as about average for a Northern Pack alpha, but his chest was beautifully broad and stunningly naked except for where his hair teased over it, calling attention to the contrast of brown areolas against the stark white of his skin.

READ MORE

The pinker points of his nipples were at attention, making me imagine that his cock had grown equally as hard from talking to the squirmy omega who called him Judge Tarek in a tremulous squeak. I wondered if Judge Tarek was mated and if his mate knew he spent his days hearing from plaintive omegas, because he seemed to be enjoying it, and the omega was probably getting a thrill from it too. I couldn’t smell slick in the air, but an electric current of arousal buzzed through the room. Someone was excited.

Me. The someone was me.

I was standing there glaring at the omega in a too-obvious display of jealousy with my cock hard in my jeans.

Following along in this series has been a delight. Our heroes here are bold enough to push against the accepted and make their own way. I enjoyed the characters not only because they had the courage to stand up but because they did so boldly, though Donovan was a tad reluctant at first. His strength grew and watching that along with his change of heart, when he relished his error, was a beautiful thing. Terrific characters, strong storyline that abolishes the idea of bigotry and a warm HEA that brings harmony to our heroes.


Omega Returned

When Owen’s dreams of being claimed by a prince go wrong, he doesn’t know what he’ll do. Being returned to the Western Pack is shameful enough. Just wait until his father hears what he let the prince do to him.

Fortis is happy to escort Owen home because it means spending time in the woods with his beta buddy, Keesh. Keesh will help keep his urges in check with respect to the omega, but who’s going to rein in what Fortis feels for his friend? His inner alpha wants an omega, but his everything else wants Keesh.

Owen is adorable and Fortis is hot, but Keesh can never have either one of them. He’s not the omega Fortis dreams of, and he doesn’t have the knot Owen craves. It might be time to give up on these unrequited crushes and crawl home to the Central Pack.

Wolves run on instincts, and the closer Owen, Fortis, and Keesh get to Western Pack territory, the louder theirs insist they’re heading the wrong way. Will their human minds catch up to what their wolfy hearts already know before Owen gets returned?

Prince Angel introduced him to the wolves who were going to be his companions for the next three weeks. The alpha was named Fortis. He nodded in response to Owen’s timid greeting, holding himself aloof with his arms crossed in front of him. The beta’s name was Keesh, and the warmth of his smile made up for the menacing air the patch gave him.

“Excited?” Keesh asked.

“Excited?” Owen repeated. He’d been excited on the way out. Not now.

“Yeah, excited. We’re going to have fun. Rabbits, campfires, fresh air. I made Fortis bring marshmallows.” Keesh nudged the alpha, who gave a little growl in response. Owen didn’t know what marshmallows were, but they seemed to make Fortis angry. Maybe they were heavy.

“I could carry them,” he offered. He was dependent on this alpha for the next three thousand miles and wanted to keep him happy, but Keesh laughed.

“I think Fortis can manage. That pack’s not too big for you?”

“It’s fine.” When he hitched it up higher on his shoulders, Keesh came around behind him and fiddled with the straps until it sat more firmly over his hip bones.

Betas were so nice. Maybe when Owen got back to Pertha, his father could find him a beta to mate with. A beta might not mind that he’d foolishly squandered the only thing that made him worth having.

Tamed

Cover of Tamed by T. M. Chris shows the back of a man in a suit holding a whip facing an empty wood chair

Jake's too big for most Doms to handle, until Eduardo comes along to tame him.

Jake is his own worst enemy, an ex-Marine struggling to meet everyday challenges now that he no longer has the externally-imposed discipline of the service.

Excerpt:

Meanwhile, there stood Mr. Perfect Dom only a few stools away, rhapsodizing about his good boy, Earl, and it made Jake sick.

Lucky, lucky Earl. Where even was Lucky Earl? If Jake had a Dom like this one, no way he’d leave him alone in a club to get picked up by some other needy sub.

“Discipline,” the Dom was saying. “It’s all about consistency. If you have one rule one day, and another on another day, it just confuses them. Leniency may seem loving, but it’s the worst thing you can do.”

Discipline. Now there was a thing Jake didn’t have.

T.M. Chris delivers not only a hot story but also one with meaning. There’s no doubt the erotica feel to this, I’m glad I didn’t read it in public! Yet there’s a sweetness to it that made it all the more captivating.

The character development was exceptionally well done, especially for this type of piece. I fell in love with Jake and loved seeing his journey. T.M. Chris really poured so much into Eduardo; I greatly appreciated the extra depth. The world building was intricate and vivid.

The first four chapters of this book are from my favorite story in the Come, Play anthology. After reading it I wanted more of Eduardo and Jake, and this expanded version was such a treat that I read it in KU, then bought a copy for my collection. Eduardo is the perfect Dom for Jake because he really understands what makes him tick and knows how to bring out the best in him. In turn, Jake grows into himself, and becomes the perfect sub for Eduardo—not *a* perfect sub, but the sub that’s right for his Dom. I loved seeing their relationship unfurl, and even got a bit choked up in places. I know I’ll revisit their tale in the future, especially when I’m in the mood for some spankings with substance.


Omega Reimagined Volume 1

Omegas… reimagined.

Leo badly needs an alpha to help with his heats, but he doesn’t need one for anything else. He’s tough, he’s angry, and he can’t stop begging for what only Angel can give him.

Gage wishes he could find an alpha who would treat him like the omega he really is, not the beta they perceive him to be, and Ryker’s all over it.

Benjy is out of the den and looking for love. His father wants him to find an alpha, but sometimes the best alpha is another omega.

The first three Omega Reimagined novellas have been collected into a single volume.

Omega Reclaimed: When Angel meets Leo, heat is in the air, but they both have painful pasts that make it impossible to form a more permanent bond.

Omega Revealed: Ryker doesn’t understand why he reacts to Gage the way he does. He just knows he needs to make sure Gage is happy and safe and gets all the knots he can handle.

Omega Released: JT is supposed to be helping Benjy find his perfect alpha, but this sweet, fresh-off-the-farm omega might be better off without one.

Volume 1 of Omega Reimagined includes Omega Reclaimed, Omega Revealed, and Omega Released, all of which have been published separately. This is a non-MPREG universe.

This book was so good! I just started to read it and the next thing I know I'm at the end. Loved reading it, it was addictive.

The books are fun and dirty reads without pondering their "morals" but the author has definitely put them there. It is so nice to have someone take the time to get the mind as engaged as the body with their work. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series!

Omega Reimagined is a perfect title for this volume. As always, Tanya Chris brings her own unique flair, her own unmatched perspective on a genre. The way she writes is incredibly captivating; transporting the reader right into the world she creates. It definitely deserves a heat warning all of its own! The complexity of this is astounding. It is more than just shifter books, more than Alpha/Beta/Omega, it’s about living life on your terms.

It’s hard to describe this series adequately, other than to just say it’s a must read. For anyone curious about A/B/O or is hesitant, this is the best one to read. It does not contain mpreg but that didn’t detract at all. It may even be a positive for some. The stories crafted in this volume are intriguing, hot, and so much than a collection of shifter reads. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series!

This book is so much fun. It's full of novellas that have love, heat, and great storylines. I love reading Omegaverse and this collection was no exception. The world that Tanya Chris has built is unique and has a fresh take on the Omega/Alpha relationships that this genre brings to the table. If you're looking for feisty omegas and the alphas who will do anything to love and protect them, along with some knots, then you're in the right place.
