“The mirroring of misogeny in A/O dynamics. Worse, portraying the discriminations between A/O in a way that it looks like that is something natural.” (Ged_the_Winged, female, heterosexual biromantic, 15-18, South Korea)
Saved is the first book in A.M. Arthur’s new Breaking Free series. I have been eagerly awaiting this book and it definitely did not disappoint. I enjoy an omegaverse story and I have really liked much of Arthur’s other work, so this seemed like a perfect match.

Tears stung his eyes as he was finally released of the pain and he swam up toward the surface, his tail pumping to get him up before it happened again. When he reached the rocks and broke the surface, he gasped at the returning pain; it was even worse than the first two times.
Dane’s company is making headlines for all the wrong reasons, as rumors of nefarious activity have begun to fly; and though he is a strong, commanding and charismatic alpha, even Dane cannot stand against the slanderous onslaught that threatens to take down his business.

Adam felt re leaved yet curious as the man walked out something in his hand. Still trying to get the egg out, Adam began trying to push on his heavy stomach pushing down hoping anything would work.
“This sounds so weak- ‘I read playboy for the articles’ – but I really am most into the world building and reimagination of gender and society. Some of my fave a/o is teen rated. I love the idea of having more male characters who have uteruses- as many transmen do in reality- and of playing with our gendered perceptions and expectations about characters and narrative and history.” (Bekah, nonbinary, she/her, queer, 18-25, USA)
It’s at this point that the book shifts direction! There are forces at work against Jerricho and Rex who want to see the heir to the throne removed and are not beyond murder and kidnapping to achieve their goals…but that’s not all they want. These people are taking and using demons for their own profit. Imprisoning them and experimenting on them, turning them into sex slaves and worse!
Another book I needed to finish, and I’m glad I finally did because it, too, was one I needed reminding of – that there are decent people out there working for the collective good of those oppressed, discriminated against and abused…simply because it’s the right thing to do. Even if this is fiction set in an alternate universe/future timeline.
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.
honestly im so tired of how a/b/o is used to enforce creepy-ass heteronormativity thats already at full blast with Popular Yaoi Ships… like wow, how fuckin original, the less masculine, submissive of the two is the Lesser Male meant to be a breeding factory, and often destined to be subjected to a forced, downright rapey relationship. you did a real good job going beyond our expectations there, real genre breaking
Jamie got up and got on his hands and knees. He moaned, Jamie heavily lifted himself off the side of the pool. Jess gently rose off Jamie’s back and sat down against the side of the pool, spreading her legs out so he could lean back on her. Jamie shifted his position and sat back against Jess. He bent his legs and parted them, his knees poking out of the water. He tried to pull his legs back a bit more, but Jess stopped him.
He helped me realize that I had been living my entire life separated from the rest of the world. Through our love, he showed me what it was like to be a real man who wasn’t judged by wealth. I found that I liked helping the omega care for my house.
