I love Omegaverse stories. In Saved, you can really feel the attraction and mating bond between Braun and Tarek. I absolutely fell in love with their relationship and the way it goes against the ‘norm’ of the Omegaverse society.
The universe in question is the Omegaverse, and it is the product of some very odd machinations in the world of fanfiction. Really, very odd. I know Frenchie has already mentioned this trope in her earlier post, but since we’re going full omegaverse here, I’ll start out with a bit of Omegaverse 101.

Told from a dual POV, the two shifters were quite perfectly and evenly matched, despite one being an alpha and the other an omega. As with the first book in the series, compromise played a large part in the story. I was pleasantly surprised by how much Rocco, the alpha, was prepared to give to make Kade happy, and that worked for this pairing. And yes…there is a pregnancy.
Genre: Paranormal M/M Mpreg Romance Length: Novel FOR OMEGA Hayes Kensington, life was going to be horrible no matter how he sliced it. His father was rich, domineering, and hadn’t liked the fact that he was an omega (a submissive male capable of carrying young)
“there’s also huge amounts of consent issues surrounding the alpha/omega/beta dynamics – people don’t seem to understand what consent is and how it’s given, so they end up writing rape scenes and passing it off as either dubious consent or completely normal. I was horrified by how unchallenged some of the conventions were within the omegaverse sub-fandom.” (nondeducible, female, lesbian, 25-30, Poland)

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?
Pregnancy changed everything. Ed went bananas dictating exactly what & how Colin should behave, and of course he had to quit his job immediately, despite the years he’d spent building up his reputation & winning Awards. He was just supposed to stop working and become a Stay at Home Dad. BOOM!! World War III began. With neither side willing to budge – despite intervention from mediators. This book was so interesting to read. At times I became frustrated with Ed, but when seen from his distorted perspective all the craziness did make sense.
Red Henry is the life of the party in the local dragon community, with a long string of omegas vying for his attention. But something’s wrong. His endless nights of partying, and squandering his hoard on material possessions, is covering up a deeper need…a need he can’t admit to himself until the day he saves Kit.
I love this series. I love the characters, the dialogue and storylines. I also love the action and adventure aspect of it as well. This book was no different. It had drama, action, suspense, mystery, romance…it had it all. I loved how the characters interact with each other not just the two MCs, but all of the characters. The only bump I found in the story was when they were discussing how Colin and Ed were discussing how they would take care of the baby. Colin mentioned something about being able to afford the rising health insurance premiums for the baby. Active duty service members and their families do not pay for their insurance. It’s an entitlement with the military. Me working with military insurance is the only reason why that stood out to me. Other than that tiny blip, the story was perfect. The series is a definite must read and I truly recommend it.
The human political plotline was another that had some great ideas but wasn’t pulled off as smoothly as liked, including brief treatment of two human factions (part of the same team) that seemed to be at odds with any kind of organized effort by a human government to take an issue like this seriously. (People showing up at official, extremely sensitive, top-secret, and should-be-very-carefully-managed negotiations unannounced. A strike force that seemed to be spotted from miles away slowly surrounding and capturing an entire large group that should have easily been able to slip away, but they seemed to just stand there and wait to be surrounded and captured.)
99% of these fics are bottomlock but since I don’t care who bottoms or who tops (as long as they fuck and as long as they are in character) (that means no DFP Sherlock) (or Baby Princess John) so if you have a problem with toplock in general, tread carefully.
The back rubbing helped to ease the pain tremendously. Spy instantly became more relaxed and calm. The same couldn’t be said for Sniper however. He was practically shitting himself. Several times he’d asked to stop to call Medic, which Spy always yelled no to and threatened to kill the Aussie very slowly and painfully several times over if he ever did.
“F-Francis…” Niso mumbled softly, shifting so the tired male could see the baby. He looked down at it too when it began to cry. “N-Niso..” Francis moaned weakly, leaning his weight against the older male, his body still shaking from the strain of delivery. Slowly, he turned to look at the squalling baby cradled in Niso’s arms. Francis couldn’t believe the baby had come out of him. Before he could dwell too long on the insanity of the birth, his body convulsed and he arched his back, groaning anew when another contraction hit and a torrent of fluids expelled from his anus. “No..no..n-not again,” Francis cried, face flushed and shiny with sweat. It was too soon! Niso bit his lip and got up from the tub, finding a towel and wrapping the baby in it. After laying the baby on the floor where it was safe he got back into the tub, gripping Francis’ hand now. “It’s happening again?” Niso asked, swallowing hard as he looked down to Francis’ still swollen stomach with a shake of his head. Francis nodded jerkily. His chest burned with each quick and shallow breath, his lungs desperate for more air. But before he could gasp again, he surrendered himself to another painful contraction and bore down with a vengeance. The pressure in his anus was escalating. He bellowed loudly and squeezed Niso’s hand for support. His head was spinning from lack of oxygen and he wanted the pain to disappear but it was only worsening. He paused for a brief moment to collect himself then jerked back with a cry when an involuntary spasm seized his body. The next baby was on the edge of crowning. “I can’t,” Francis begged and looked imploringly at Niso. He was defeated. “I can’t do this..It hurts too much..”Niso just shook his head and kept a tight grip on Francis’ hand. “Push Francis!” He ordered him harshly, glaring a little. “I gave birth to your six kids! Now push!” He growled. Deep down, he felt mildly angry at Francis’ for giving up so early. He pressed his hand to Francis’ stomach and narrowed his eyes at him. “Push.” “S-Stop it! Get offa me.” Francis bucked and jerked, trying to wrench himself free from Niso’s grips. He felt as though he was tearing in half, his sore anus bulging and straining to release the baby trapped inside his canal. It did not come with his last push and he gasped for breath then fell forward, groaning as its head edged closer and closer to his anus, stretching him past the point of pain. Grunting, Francis threw his head back and pushed again, face and neck reddening from the extreme effort. Despite the pain wracking his body, he yanked his knees to his chest and bore down, cursing and screaming, when suddenly something slippery and wet emerged between his thighs, gushing fluids. “Haa..haa..h-head’s out,” he called weakly.
That is what I loved so much, that it’s not a quick read, there is background and we get to know these character. Starting with Braun, you can see the fear he has lived his entire life, and why he doesn’t want anything to do with finding an alpha. Oh my heart ached for this, so much. As an omega, he has been told his whole life he is a second class citizen, so easily thrown out like garbage. You can really see the parallels to this in real life and I think that is why my heart broke as it did. Because this actually happens today in our world.

“No, no, no, no,” he kept chanting out loud while shaking his head in disbelief. He still had a little over six weeks, this cannot be happening right here and now.

Ciel woke and said “SEBASTIAN! What are you doing on the floor? Are you ok?” Sebastian looked up panting heavily and said ” I honestly don’t know, young master. I’ve been having these really bad stomach pains since last night and they have been getting worse and…” Sebast
He didn’t think the pain could get any worse, but as his baby’s head crowned to it’s widest point, it seemed to triple. And the mass in his anus persisted, being slowly pushed down with each push he gave to birth his baby. His pelvis felt too incredibly full with what was going on inside him, but all he could do was push and hope for the best.
On his way home from a meeting of the North American werewolf council, Armand La Marche is stopped in his limousine by a boy who is hurt by an unknown assailant who murdered his friend. After decades of searching, Armand has found his mate. There is one problem, someone is trying to kill Sean.
This book makes my heart break – the way omegas are treated in this world is especially brutal, some of the worst I think I have read in ABO romance, honestly. However, the romance between Braun and Tarek is some of the sweetest, sappiest, wonderful-est things I have read, and that did help offset the brutal world that omegas live in.
Joel frowned when he realized that the egg had stopped coming out halfway and spread the man’s legs even wider, trying to force the egg out. He could see that it was slippery as fluid was leaking out from the man’s hole, dripping onto the bed under him.

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.

Birth of surpriseShe huffed and puffed and closed her eyes as a contraction came. All she could do was get through it. Alexis had more important things to do. It was CHRISTMAS, after all. The contractions had woken her up at about 4am, about two hours earlier than she’d wanted to wake up.
