2. White Horses by Jackie Stevens: They say that there are no white horses – those that we think of as white are really just a faded and deceiving grey. Names can be misleading, and definitions can be false, and yet through the maze of artifice and deceit, we might just find something true. When Harry returns for his last two years at Hogwarts School, he will find that boundaries are shifting and not everyone is who he thought – including himself. He will have to learn that change is like those elusive white horses: swift, beautiful and irretrievable. ***This story is so incredible and poignant; I really have been wanting to draw fan art for it! Ultra fave.
The man had felt another contraction and Joel smiled, enjoying the way the man groaned and pushed with it, arching his back upwards slightly and giving Joel full view of his naked, sweaty, gigantic belly with 40-odd eggs in it.
Sherlock had not come to the Watson household with anything but professional intentions. But as he sat there and watched John compulsively run his hands over his swelling middle, he felt those intentions begin to twist and grow into something else entirely.
I am an advocate for reproductive choice. I am an advocate for trans* rights. I embrace the diverse gender spectrum and a person’s right to choose how they identify themselves, whether man, woman or neither. […] I don’t understand the grossed out objections to mpreg. I don’t know if it’s because it’s something normally associated with women’s bodies, and so deemed gross, or if it’s seen as beneath men somehow. I know it’s not even close to being physically possible, but neither are werewolves, for goodness sake. What’s wrong with imagining a world where your ability to reproduce isn’t exclusive or determined by chance? What’s wrong with exploring that subversion of a previously extremely one-sided and gendered experience?
But is Aaron willing to open up his mind to a world beyond the physical, while Indigo struggles to open up his heart after his devastating loss? And how many ‘coincidences’ need to occur before they both stop denying destiny?
Both alpha and omega are secretly searching for an extraordinarily powerful artifact, and when each realizes the other is pursuing the same item, there is quick agreement to look for it together. There is no real drama or distrust, even though the omega has been horribly abused by alphas in the past and is working for what the alpha considers to be a dangerous and untrustworthy organization. This type of scene would have been ripe for some potentially interesting character and relationship development.
Summary: Levi moves away from the only town he’s ever known, off to university and away from his two friends, Isabel and Farlan. Having roommates is a new experience, one that he thinks will be totally unpleasant, but when the last person to turn up is a gorgeous male omega, his perspective changes.
Then he hurried over to the bathroom, picking up both swaddled babies from the floor and returning to the bedroom, laying them on the large bed next to their bearer. Francis moaned and wriggled weakly on the bed. His strength was spent. Francis threw an arm over his forehead and inhaled sharply as another contraction rolled over him. He was so tired. All he wanted was to sleep, and erase the last four hours. He turned his head and gasped loudly when his muscles tensed again, biting into the duvet to muffle his cries. Niso sat on the bed and watched him, gripping at his hand lightly now. There wasn’t anything he could do but sit there with him. Sighing, he shook his head, wondering when Francis would next give birth and how many more he’d be having. Francis buried his face in the pillow. His soft cries became more urgent as he curled in on himself, clutching his heaving abdomen. His insides felt like they were being ripped open. “Nnnggh..!”With the next contraction he squeezed Niso’s hand, hard enough to bruise. His back arched off the bed as the baby suddenly shifted and the horrible pressure in his pelvis returned. Francis groaned and rubbed his stomach furiously, feeling his muscles seize and contract against his will. This was not his body anymore; he had no control. Niso gritted his teeth but didn’t say anything, allowing Francis to squeeze his hand. “Is it coming yet?” He asked, frowning as he watched Francis continue to writhe on the bed. Using his free hand, Niso tried to keep the other’s legs spread wide, hoping the nightmare would be over soon with the final birth or births. Francis whined, struggling to loose himself from the covers. He wanted to be on all fours but his legs were tangled and plastered to the bedsheets by sweat and birth fluids. He rolled over to his side and looked at Niso. “N-Need to get up..” Francis managed to gasp out before he concentrated on his breath. This time the pain was so strong it felt like knives were being twisted inside his gut. He latched onto Niso’s arm and tried to haul himself upwards, wheezing, when suddenly his stomach clenched and a gush of fluids splashed down his legs. Francis shuddered. “AHHHHHHHHHHH…!”
now you may be wondering why with all these praises I am not giving it 5 stars. well the ending seemed a bit rushed and they kind of skipped over something i felt should be explained. i was happy with the HEA but there were a few things I was like….but what happen to….and with that…. However despite the rushed ending it was all sorts of wonderful. definitely worth a read.
“This is not specifically about omegaverse itself, but when people say mpreg, they automatically think of omegaverse. The character could be trans or intersex or genderfluid. You never know.” (Devon, genderfluid, pansexual, 15-18, USA)
Spy felt another contraction start. Sniper meanwhile, had managed to prize his wrist from his lover’s death grip. Ignoring his own pain, he took hold of the Frenchman’s hand and proceeded to rub his back as he pushed.
Bryce came to my door looking like a helpless, lost cat. He was disheveled, hungry and looking for a leg up in the world. The first thing I noticed about him was that he was in heat. With no money, he couldn’t even afford heat blockers.
”Go boil water,Put this in it and sterilize it!” He demands before handing Grell the instrument. Grell nods and runs off. Sebastian stands by Ciel’s bedside patting away his sweat with a handkerchief and breathing through his own pain silently for what seems like an eternity before Grell finally returns with the sterilized instrument.
Harry awoke when a sharp stabbing pain engulfed his middle. His belly tightened and held, then suddenly relaxed. Looking at the time, he saw that it was only 2:00 in the morning. He timed his contractions, and they were about twenty minutes apart. After four hours of this, the contractions were six minutes apart, and Harry decided it would be prudent to wake Draco and send him to get Madame Pomfrey.
Four original, unabridged, full-cast productions of Gail Carriger’s most beloved fantasy short stories: “The Curious Case of the Werewolf That Wasn’t, the Mummy That Was, and the Cat in the Jar”: A mummified cat, a secret agent, and an aristocrat entangle Alessandro Tarraboti (father of Alexia Tarraboti from the Parasol Protectorate series) in a rollicking, wry adventure into the supernatural secrets of ancient Egypt.
Kendall wasn’t looking for a relationship, he was still trying to get over his last one. But there was something enticing about James Diamond. He was perfect. But there was something else about him. Something Kendall couldn’t quite place. James Diamond was more than just a pretty face. AU. Kames/ Slight Kogan.
After Sniper cut the umbilical cord, and Spy had delivered the afterbirth, the infant was cleaned and wrapped up in blankets to keep her warm. Spy was also seen to and had a blanket wrapped around him as well as a pillow placed beneath his head so he could rest. He would need some time to recover from the birth. Medic needed to keep him overnight for observation. The still nameless infant girl was asleep in a makeshift cot, which was really just an empty drawer filled with blankets. She was now dry and fed after Spy had (very reluctantly) expressed some milk for her to be fed via a bottle.
Ciel screams out as he holds his knees and bears his chin down to his chest,Straining and panting. His face hot with sweat and exertion,He can’t help but scream out at the seering,tearing pain he feels. He’s sure he’s going to be ripped open,or worse,ripped completely in half. He lets out a panicked breath as he stops pushing,and he grabs hold of the curtain behind his bed and holds on tightly,Nearly ripping it from the window as he bears down again against the enormous pressure in his anus. Before long,He begins to feel the ring of fire and he gulps in a mixture of fear and pain.
Dean Mathews leads a normal, if boring life. His career, his home, his social life, none of it is really what he wanted for himself, but it’s the life he has nonetheless. A small coincidence brings him the opportunity to take ownership of his grandfather’s old farm, to bring the place under his wing and careful hand. This choice will lead him from his old life to face a host of new challenges, most of which he expected. The unforeseen comes in the form of Mikael Reed, a simple carpenter – with a few secrets.
Overall, it was a sweet and explicit omegaverse story with enough plot and relationship tension to keep things interesting in addition to two heated and sizzling encounters. There was certainly a bit of manufactured feel (falling in love in 2 weeks), but elements adding to the tension (a beta friend who was not a girlfriend) and interesting if underdeveloped supporting characters (former wife, protective alpha friend, meddling sister, and sweet daughter) helped give the quick novel life beyond the sizzled. Some setting information, especially regarding the usually ignored role of betas in an Alpha/Beta/Omega omegaverse was a nice touch. Also, I’m not always appreciative of Alpha violence and protective instincts, but I was pretty pumped when Thomas goes a little alpha in support of a non-alpha.
Gabriel Wyatt is a big city Detective living in a small Ohio town. He expects a peaceful existence once he moves from Miami, Florida, but that’s the last thing he finds. Instead, Gabe discovers murder, mayhem, and one smart-mouthed stylist he can’t get out of his head. Josh “Jazz” Roman is a small-town business owner with big dreams and an attitude to match. He finds himself in the middle of a case that brings the dreamy detective to the front door of his Curl Up and Dye salon. Josh learns that the biggest threat to him isn’t a killer; it’s a man who wants something from him that he vowed to never give again – his heart.
This was undoubtedly a very heartwarming and riveting story. Peter goes to a club one night and meets Nitro, an alpha in heat. In some books only omegas go into heat but this was awesome. They have sex and naturally Peter gets pregnant. Nitro goes to his apartment and helps Peter from beginning to end. However, I was a bit upset with Peter at first when he ran away. He comes across an evil wolf shifter and Nitro has to save him. Frankly, I thought this was written beautifully and whatever few editing problems there may have been it was no big deal. It didn’t get in the way of the story for me. Once Peter realizes the truth about everything I loved it even more because of their many happy moments. The author was very descriptive about what Peter was going through and I could see it clearly in my mind as the plot unfolds. I really liked the caring witch, Saraphine, and the little raccoon named, Rascal. (We had one also. :D) The plot was spellbinding because Nitro really knew how to handle his issues, especially with his wretched brother. I don’t like too much grief or constant conflicts this book had just enough, for me. It was beautiful and very impressive. I’m pretty sure that I’ll be reading the next one in the series. There’s some really evil alphas out there so luckily Peter found Nitro. The world building was also fascinating and I was totally transfixed. 🙂
Kendall just wanted everything to beokay. He wanted the emptiness that he was feeling to go away. Then James Diamond enters his life. The last thing Kendall wanted was to fall in love again, but he made a promise. A promise that needed to be kept. AU. MAJOR CHARACTER DEATH
I enjoyed reading this book . I also enjoyed listening to it . The characters was great. I loved the romance . Mark struggling with his insecurities and up bringiing. Zeke carefree and living life. Both dominant males . My favorite part is on the airplane when Zeke first see Mark. Mark is not receptive to him at first. I enjoyed the narrator as well . The voices was exactly what I expected . I’m looking forward to reading Asher’s story. I like to see how that turns out .
You can add books with characters that have animal characteristics but don’t actually shift so please no coyote packs etc. (Mainly, don’t add werewolf romances since there’s just so many and are so similar. You can add exceptions to shifter romance such as Stephanie Burke’s Absolute Perfection.)
The angel stayed seated in the same spot and thought over what the younger Winchester had said. If he was being honest a deep part of him and wished that Dean would be willing to have a family with him. Castiel had long ago accepted his feelings and knew that if Dean were his mate he would be happy for the rest of eternity. But, he also knew that Dean would never feel the same way he did, and why would he when he was so brave and bright and Castiel was nothing but a failure of an angel?
This is a book that has a fascinating storyline as well as some interesting characters. Isaac Ward enters the trials for a chance at being turned into a werewolf. Ryan is the Alpha and his mate. Ward is conflicted, he has never been attracted to men and is confused about mating. Well-written and fascinating romance. Looking forward to reading more by this wonderful author.
Or that one merfolk au where Levi (merman/male/dominant) and Eren (mermaid/arguably still male but in the submissive role here) are a pair of mates living in the wild, meeting for the first time by the lake that Levi inhabits.
As he was pushing, he felt the afterbirth in his vagina and he bore down long enough for it to come out. He panted, and started to bear down again; he still had an egg to birth. Just as his contraction receded to give him a break, however, his stomach contracted harshly again and he held his belly and groaned.
Still, lots of readers love the smut. Luna (female, bi, 18-25, Finland) enjoys the wild and animalistic nature of A/B/O, calls it “a total holiday from everyday life” where rules differ. Alex Reid (genderqueer, they/them, greyromantic bisexual, 18-25, Serbia) likes that “everything is wet and messy, lots of come and size kink”. Different rules include some animalistic diction, which can be a squick for some. Similarly, some see Omegaverse as some form of bestiality – and either like or dislike that.
‘Oh shit, oh shit, oh shit’ was all that was running through Sniper’s head. This could not be happening. He was only vaguely aware of Spy staring at him. When the contraction ended, Spy straightened himself up with a hand to his back. He turned to the assassin.
