Blurb: Learning to trust can bring a lifetime of joy.

As happily-married beta couple Serge and Dex Freel await the birth of their first child, Serge can’t help but think back to the rocky start of his and Dex’s relationship. After a party introduction from a mutual friend, a tentative friendship blooms into something much stronger. Marred by misunderstandings, personal prejudices, and Serge’s own inability to trust, they nearly go their separate ways more than once—and almost lose their chance at the beautiful life they’ll build together.

But Dex’s alpha-like stubbornness and Serge’s desperate need to care for others brings them back together over and over, until both men realize they’re truly stronger together than apart. But their happily-ever-after is hard-won and other friendships are tested, before Serge finally takes a chance on giving his heart to Dex and trusting the other man not to break it into unfixable pieces—and trust is not something Serge gives easily.

See how two fan-favorite characters from the Breaking Free Omegaverse series meet in this 42k word novella. The story is best enjoyed after reading Heard (BF #3), because the current timeline events occur during Heard’s epilogue, but it can also be easily read after Found (BF #4).

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Serge and Dex are betas that have been in the series from the beginning so it was a must to get this couples back story and how they met. Both have been through some horrific events in their lives and Serge does not want to be with anyone.

But Dex is persistent. I love these two together. They helped each other grow and Dex showed Serge that not all are out to hurt others.

They had a few bumps along the way but are the stronger for them once the dust settled.

Great read.

Blurb: Two broken hearts…one perfect fit.

Alpha Morris Danvers likes his quiet life as a paralegal and as the uncle to his beta brother Morgan’s infant son Aeron. Raised by an abusive sire, Morris and Morgan have relied on each other for years, and Morris doesn’t trust himself to do right by an omega mate. When a tragic accident leaves Morris alone to raise a baby, he reaches out to his boss Ronin Cross for help—and gets more help than he ever imagined from Ronin’s mate and their friends. But Morris can’t take bereavement leave forever and Aeron needs a caregiver.

After surviving an abduction and months of torture, all omega Jaysan Rowe wanted was to give away the baby he never asked for and move on. But after months of acting out, Jaysan finally hits rock bottom on the one-year anniversary of his child’s birth. Desperate to get his act together, he meets with an alpha who needs full-time daycare for his infant nephew. But the instant Jaysan sets his sights on little Aeron he knows: Aeron is his biological child. Even Morris’s nose can tell the pair belongs to each other. His nose also tells him something even more shocking: Jaysan is his bondmate.

Both men feel the bond, but neither is ready to mate, period, so they come to a business arrangement. Jaysan wants a relationship with Aeron, and Morris needs a sitter. It should have been perfect, except for that pesky mating bond. A bond that draws them together, over and over, no matter how hard each man fights it. Jaysan swore long ago he’d never mate or let another alpha touch him during heat—except everything about Morris makes him feel safe. Wanted. Whole. But Morris deserves an unsoiled mate, not someone as dirty and used as Jaysan, and Jaysan will do anything to prove it to the stubborn alpha…even if it means giving up his son a second time.

NOTE: This is a non-shifter Omegaverse story with alpha/omega/beta dynamics, heats, knotting, and mpreg. In this world, omegas are second-class citizens with few civil rights and almost no protections under the law. Trigger warnings for physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. This series is best read in numerical order.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Morris loses his older brother to a car accident and finds he is the guardian of their son Aeron. Jaysan has mourned the fact that he gave his child up for adoption the day he was born. Kell tells Jaysan about someone needing a sitter so Jaysan goes to the interview. When he arrives he meets Morris and feels a bond. But more importantly he finds his son.

Jayson and Morris fight the bond between them every step of the way. I was flabbergasted at the lengths Jaysan went to make Morris see he was not interested but understood his reasoning. I love this story about two broken men who find light at the end of a tunnel in each other.

There was many ups and downs for these two along the way. Their friends help them out along the journey to finding happiness. I am in awe of this series. The only problem I’ve seen so far is couple of spelling errors in each book. Other than it’s wonderful.

I can see several more books in this series with certain characters coupled up.

Fantastic addition.

Blurb: A widowed alpha finds something unexpected with a rescued, pregnant omega…

Two years after his longtime mate passed away, Senior Constable Isa Higgs lives for his work solving crimes and protecting the citizens of Sansbury Province—and he won’t admit to anyone that he’s lonely. His three beta sons barely speak to him, he has no real friends to speak of, and his home feels too empty most nights. When he helps free five omega prisoners from a life of torture and abuse, Isa is unexpectedly drawn to one in particular—an omega six months pregnant with another alpha’s child.

Liam Haley lost everything in one single tragedy—his family, his freedom, and his ability to make choices. And then he’s whisked out of hell by an alpha constable twice his age who should terrify Liam, but instead, the man makes him feel safe. Protected. Wanted. But Liam is carrying a child he isn’t sure he wants to keep, and the last thing he needs is to get attached to a widowed alpha who can’t possibly want him back…right?

With Liam pregnant and Isa previously mated, neither man is sure exactly what they’re feeling—only the more time they spend together, the closer they become. And Liam is still sorting through the trauma of his kidnapping, so friendship is their only recourse—until someone from Liam’s past shows up to claim what he believes is his. Now Isa has to choose between letting Liam go, or fighting like hell for the damaged, young omega he’s unexpectedly fallen in love with.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Liam is rescued along with other pregnant omegas from a fight ring. He does not trust anyone except for Higgs. Scared and uncertain of what the future holds in store for him he turns to Higgs for comfort. Higgs is unsure of what he feels for Liam and considering the age difference he is not sure it’s a good idea to act on his feelings.

Higgs has three children, all in school. He lost his mate a few years ago and has been lonely so he buries himself in his work. The problem is he’s pushed his kids away. With Liam comes a new understanding of his children.

When an alpha makes a claim on Liam, Higgs will do anything to make sure Liam never suffers abuse again. I loved these two together. I also liked the fact that none of the couples just fall into bed after the first meeting like most books. Each has suffered didn’t indignities. The omegas need time to adjust an find themselves after the horrific events of their pasts.

I loved that the alpha mates gave these omegas time, patience and understanding given their circumstances. Another great addition to an ongoing series that ties all the characters together in a well written emotional saga.

Blurb: An omega who can’t speak meets an alpha who won’t listen….

Karter Jenks is a first-year constable who’s still trying to prove himself to his superiors, so he isn’t looking for a mate right now. Soon, sure, but he also knows he has work to do to change his alphahole tendencies around omega rights. The Kell Iverson trial opened his eyes to how cruelly some omegas are treated, and Karter doesn’t want to follow in his authoritarian father’s footsteps when he finds his mate. And he absolutely does not expect a homeless omega vagrant and burglary suspect to be his bondmate.

Jax Orris escaped a life of captivity and pain to save himself and his infant son. Living as vagrants isn’t ideal, but it’s better than trusting the authorities who landed Jax in hell to begin with. When their hiding place is discovered, Jax is shocked to feel the mating bond with the young alpha who’s been tracking him—and even more shocked when the constable doesn’t immediately arrest him for his crimes. It helps him trust Karter enough to accept his help in keeping himself and his son safe from the men Jax escaped.

Jax’s story horrifies Karter, and he vows to protect his omega from further harm—but first he has to get his stubborn, angry omega to trust him. Trust is no longer in Jax’s nature, but he can’t deny his connection to the young alpha eager to please him. Jax never thought he’d want another alpha to touch him, much less mate with him, but Karter’s gentle patience breaks down the walls Jax erected around his heart after the death of his first mate. As Jax’s next heat approaches, the investigation into his captivity uncovers surprising connections to several previous cases, and the danger to everyone involved increases. Can he trust Karter to protect him, or will Jax’s past destroy their chance for a happily ever after?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Jax is an omega who escapes the omega fight ring while pregnant. He is caught by Constable Jenks after he breaks into two houses for baby supplies. Jenks immediately takes the man and his child somewhere safe. Jax cannot speak due to the doctor who works for the fight ring cutting his vocal cords completely.

I loved that despite being young Karter protects Jax from all the evil that he has been through. With the help of friends he didn’t know he had the two manage to get closer to each other. The baby is adorable and Karter falls hard for the two of them.

There is danger all around as an investigation is under way to find the culprits. I loved how the omegas from previous books as well as omegas from different cases all rally together to fight for each other as well as their rights. Their support was rock solid and whole. The unwavering support of the alphas who believe in being good to omegas was awesome.

Great read.

Blurb: Hell is a six-by-six jail cell and no hope for the future.

Kell Iverson has never raised his hand against another person in his entire life—and yet somehow he’s been arrested and charged with the murder of his alpha mate Krause. Sure, Krause brutalized him on a daily basis, and Kell hated his mate, but he never wanted the man dead. Not fighting the charge and accepting his fate is the easiest path—except Kell doesn’t think he’ll survive a week in prison, and he doesn’t want to disappoint his younger brother Braun by giving up. He also doesn’t expect to recognize the lawyer who shows up to defend him.

Ronin Cross was barely eighteen when he felt the mating bond with then-fourteen-year-old Kell, but his family moved away before Ronin could decide what to do. For the last ten years, he hasn’t forgotten teenage Kell, hasn’t mated, and now he’s in Sansbury Province to defend adult Kell from a capital murder charge. The mating bond is still there, but now isn’t the time to pursue anything with his fragile, battered, emotionally-damaged client.

For Kell, the term “kind alpha” is a contradiction, because he’s never known one. He went from abusive father to abusive mate, and for twenty-four years, he’s simply done what he’s told. But Ronin asks Kell what he wants. What he likes. Ronin sees him, and it’s both confusing and delightful. But Kell is facing prison time at best, execution at worst, and as his trial date looms, he can’t indulge in a fantasy that will never come true…or can he?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Kell is in jail awaiting trial for murder. His lawyer is a man from his childhood, Ronan cross. Ronan is protective of Kell given that he is Ronan’s mate. Years ago these two were separated when Ronan’s family moved away all of a sudden. Jumping at the chance to be around Kell again, Ronan springs into action doing what he does best.

The trial was heartbreaking and the details of the abuse Kell suffered by his husband horrific. Braun, Kell’s brother, is a rock for the young man in his time of need. As the trial drags on Ronan and Kell grow closer.

I loved these two as a couple. Kell, despite all he’s suffered is strong. Though it does take him time to come to grips with all he’s suffered throughout his life.

An emotional and amazing addition to the series as new evidence is brought to light as well as new leads to other cases.

Great read.

Blurb: He didn’t want an alpha to save him, but fate had other ideas…

Braun Etting was raised to know his place as an omega by his alpha father’s cruel words and fast fists, and he expects nothing but violence from the alpha who may one day mate him. His older brother Kell mated a cruel alpha who abuses him daily, and Braun is terrified of that seemingly inevitable future. When Braun’s father dies in a car crash, leaving Braun an orphan, he’s sent to a halfway house for omegas. But on his fourth night there, he witnesses a horrifying crime that sends him fleeing to the streets alone—and edging into his first heat.

Tarek Bloom is settled in his workaholic, single lifestyle, even if it is somewhat embarrassing to be a twenty-eight year-old unmated alpha. He enjoys his job as a constable, helping people and solving problems, so he isn’t prepared for his life to flip upside-down when he walks into his beta friend Dex’s apartment to help with “a problem.”

The problem turns out to be an unmated, nearly in-heat omega orphan who Dex and his husband rescued off the street last night. The even bigger problem is that Tarek feels the mating bond for this terrified omega immediately—and he’s pretty sure the omega feels it, too. But Braun hates alphas as a general rule, and no way is he giving in to the bond. All mating leads to is violence and suffering, so no thank you. But Tarek’s gentle kindness slips under Braun’s emotional shields, and Braun begins to want. To dream. All Braun has ever known is violent alphas, but Tarek is determined to make Braun trust him—and to trust in the idea of their happily ever after.

Review: I loved this story. Braun, an omega, has lost his abusive father to a car accident. Braun and his brother Kell have not had the easiest lives. They have been abused and made to feel like they do not matter simply because they are omegas. To make matters worse the laws in their province provide no protection for omegas what so ever. This made me mad as hell. My heart broke for all the injustices these two have been through not to mention what other omegas have been made to suffer.

This is an intense and emotional story about an omega who wants all omegas to be heard and treated with respect by all instead of second class citizens with no rights. Tarek is a constable who recognizes Braun as his mate when he meets him. Through patience and understanding he lets Braun get to know him. There was a lot of cases popping up in this story. I hope we get to see the conclusion of the ones that happened near the beginning as I want to know who kidnapped all those teens and what the man running the halfway house knew about the omegas going missing and where the omegas went.

The saddest part about the entire story is Kell, Braun’s brother. He’s mated to an evil abuser alpha. At the end of this book Kell is in jail for the murder of his mate. I honestly wouldn’t shed a tear if the man did kill him as the things he put that man through for years was despicable. Not to mention giving Kell’s baby away because it was not an alpha.

The funniest thing in the book was what the mean narrow-minded alphas are called: Alphahole. I am looking forward to reading the next in the series about Kell.
