Blurb: ”Shane is my stepbrother; he’s family and strictly off-limits.”

Shane Prescott is a fun-loving omega with a knack for landing in trouble. He prides himself on efficiently running the waitstaff at his brother’s restaurant, Kamasouptra. Between his brother-slash-bestie, Keith, and his dog, Rocky, Shane doesn’t need anything else to make him happy. Love would be nice, but that ship sailed the day his mom married Keith’s dad.

Keith Anderson is focused on two things: making Kamasouptra the premiere place to dine in Hollydale and not giving into his feelings for his stepbrother. For the past several years, his life has been running smoothly to the point of being in rut. Keith’s life begins to change when an offbeat old lady befriends him and starts to make Keith think that it’s time to alpha up and chase what he really wants.

Between a smarmy food critic, April Fools pranks gone wrong, and two helpful old coots who dispense their unsolicited folksy wisdom to the brothers—you’ll be in stitches as you root for a pair of men who are so busy trying to follow societal expectations that they’re oblivious to the clear signs that maybe… just maybe… they were never meant to have a brotherly relationship in the first place. Things are about to change in major ways for this pair of stepbrothers, if they can just be brave enough to take a chance for happiness.

Review: Each book in The Hollydale Omegas collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Shane and Keith have been friends since grade school and knew they loved each other. Then their parents met and married making them family. It stopped them from ever trying to get together or even let the other know how they truly felt. It took two goofy ghosts to help them along.

I was not really sure how I wanted this review to go. I do not really care for alpha and omega’s who never shift. It takes away from the paranormal side of things other than the fact that ghost show up and the omega’s can get pregnant. My main issues with this and it doesn’t have much to do with the book is something the author threw in to the story that drives me nuts. It shows that the author has issues with certain things and adds it in to the story. It was about reviews and readers making me not really want to even bother with the story. However that is just my issues but readers do buy their books so you get what I am saying.

Now as for the story itself the characters were quite quirky and I got a kick out of them both. I love how omega’s know they can get pregnant but never think it when they start getting sick. It actually makes it feel like you are knowing them quite well. I did notice that this story came off a lot better than the previous books. It didn’t feel rushed but well thought out and the story just seemed to pop out better.

I find that Tom is still my favorite out of all the characters and he is still the same sweetie as he was when we first see him. I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to the next book. I might even say that I can see myself reading this more than once.

Blurb: You can’t plan when you’ll fall in love—sometimes it just kinda sneaks up on you.

Todd Foxx was only looking to unwind from the stress of running The Sausage Shack when he went out for an evening of fun at The Big O. After he ended the evening by hooking up with a hot new alpha in town, he certainly never thought he’d see him again.

Hugo Keller left his high-profile job as a certified cicerone back east and moved across country to take a brewmaster job in Hollydale’s unique beer garden and sausage restaurant. A single dad, his only plans involved giving his young son a place to put down roots and focusing on his new job—even if it was a major step down from where he began. He certainly never expected to see his smoking hot one night stand again.

Can two men—and one precocious little boy—find a way to make a family? As Hugo and Todd slowly journey from lovers to coworkers to friends and back to lovers, they’ll need to deal with an ex-wife with boundary issues, a surprise pregnancy, and mysterious “mill girls” who like to giggle in the night.

There is a rule that should be followed, never mess around with someone you work with. That was one of Todd’s little rules, to bad he forgot it in one night. To be fair he had no clue Hugo was his newest employee, but it was a fun night. A night that left them with a little gift.

Hugo had been married once before and it left him with a cute little four year old that asked many, and I do mean many questions. One night with a sexy omega and damn his eyes if he doesn’t walk into work and see him. To his shock and surprise, it is his new boss. Things are going to get real interesting. That is if his nutty ex-wife could keep her word and the three little girls who keep showing up did not drive him crazy first. Wait till you find out who those girls are, or should I say what they are.

When I first started reading this series I had decided four books later to drop her off my reading list. There had been so much spelling and grammar wrong with them that left me not wanting to waste my time on them. Even though there is a lot of humor mixed in with just a bit of paranormal weirdness to keep me entertained. I had decided on this story to just give it one more chance and I was very surprised with it. Which now makes me want to read the four I did not read.

The puns were quite a blast to read even if the freaky ghost were a little out there. It does make a good Halloween type story though. I liked the characters and Tom is always a pleasure to have in a story. Now I am still not a fan of the paranormal aspect of a story that doesn’t actually have the men doing anything other than giving birth. They don’t shift or anything like that and it is a downside for me. Also the alpha and omega titles with human guys doesn’t really do for it either. That was actually my only issues with this story and I hate to say would continue to do so.

Other than that it was a pleasant surprise and I was glad to have taken the time to read it. I like the uniqueness to it, as I only know one other author who writes similar stories. I am sorry to say that it won’t be a type of story that will be read more than, oh a half a dozen times (laugh). I had a blast reading it and look forward to the next book.

Christian and his brother were raised by their omega father and never knew their alpha dad. Their father was one of a kind and showed them how to be men. So they knew what it was like to be poor but well loved. When Christian came across Liam, he knew something was up and knew he had to help. He just got a little help from a angel in disguise. A little old man who seemed to know things before others.

Liam was very pregnant and on the run. His old alpha was an ass who didn’t want anything to do with their baby. He was broke and homeless. Unless helped him he was going to be in dire need, not only him but his child. It came in a sweet alpha and an crazy old man.

I came across this author with the first book in this series and can’t seem to get enough of them. They are funny as hell with a bit of magic thrown in. My attention had been caught from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. The characters are quite quirky and are a blast to read about.

I can’t wait to get started reading the next book.

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.
