Blurb: “I will always love you, both in this life and the next. I vow to love you, honor you, and stay by your side through haunted houses, dead relatives, and random appearances of red croquet balls.”
Milo is a mild-mannered omega who just wants to save his Sweet Ballz, the candy shop he owns on Main St. in Hollydale. Someday maybe he will find an alpha as awesome as the book boyfriends he reads about in the popular books by his favorite author. But for now, Milo is content to be at home curled up with his favorite romance books.
Rafe is a lonely alpha trying to juggle his writing career while settling into the gorgeous old manor he’s just purchased in quaint Hollydale. He just wants to have a home of his own away from the craziness of his rich, socialite family. All Rafe wants is peace and quiet to secretly write his popular romance novels, and to maybe someday find a sweet omega to love like the ones he writes about every night.
Rafe can’t explain the odd happenings in his new home, or the strangely sweet little old lady who comes and goes, even when the doors are locked. Is he being gas-lighted or is there more going on? Rafe and Milo could be perfect for each other, if they can first overcome the red croquet balls that life keeps throwing at them.
This is the first book of The Hollydale Omegas series. This book is 35k and most likely contains an HEA. 18+ readers only please! And yes, this book contains M/PREG, adults adulting in sexy grown-up ways, and way more than an occasional use of potty mouth language.
Review: I came across this author with an email to her book list and I will admit that it was the title to this book that had me wondering. And let me tell you that I am glad to have looked.
At first I was wondering about the alpha and omega part thinking shifters, but the guys never once shifted. So I was second guessing my choice because I usually don’t much care for books that use the same subject in the non shifter way, but I was quite surprised by it, in fact I will definitely put this author on a favorite list to read.
Milo is a sweet omega who just loves to make sweets and read a good romance. His best friend, who is just like his brother invites him out for a drink with a couple of strong alpha’s. To his shock, the sexy alpha looking at him like he was the top meal, also happens to be one of his favorite author of all time. He just had one problem and that was work. Someone was trying to say he stole a recipe from them, and he needed to get his family recipe to prove his innocence.
Rafe is a hot alpha with a great attitude. He was no one to go out and drink but he was loving the night. His heart might be caught but he has a nice surprise in store for himself. A sweet old lady is always showing up and giving him advice, and well if you want to know more read the book.
It was a fascinating book that kept my attention caught the whole time. In fact I read this story twice and can see me reading it more than once. It was the perfect length for me. I loved the characters and their story quite a bit.
I had so much fun reading this book and can not wait to read the next book.
