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.
