This wasn’t how he had wanted it to go; his mate was no where in sight and he was on land. For a moment he thought about crawling back in, but with how frequent the contractions were coming he knew he’d not have enough time to find his mate and go to their little sanctuary to birth their newborns.
Regarded as the strongest wolf shifter in generations, Alpha Zev Hassick is surprised and confused by his attraction to his best friend. His very human, very male best friend. A male shifter has to mate with a female shifter to keep his humanity, so shifters can’t be gay. Yet, everything inside Zev tells him Jonah is his true mate. Zev and Jonah know they’re destined for each other, but they must overcome traditions ingrained over generations and long-buried secrets to fulfill their destiny.

Why I read this book: This week is Out Of Your Comfort Zone, and I had just snagged this one when it was free. I wasn’t sure what I would read for this week and one of our reviewers pointed out it was mpreg which isn’t really my cup of tea. I also saw the note that is had warnings for physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, all of which are hot buttons for me.
Stiles and Derek are getting along, but they’re not a family, and they’re sure as hell not mates. Christ, they’re basically just two stupid guys who happened to get pregnant because of a full moon and sheer dumb luck.
And then, just like that, the game was on, and Naruto bashed out through the door in a mad run to get away from the two males, and they chased after him, working well together after many years as team mates in the forces.
I really like how the story starts off and that Rian and Taryn’s situations are gradually introduced. However, their problems seem easily resolved not so soon after the fact. Talk about winning the luck lottery! Honestly, I was surprised that Rian’s infertility issue was not made into a bigger deal than what it was. Especially with the Pack Wars going on, getting married and procreation is a must in their society. Therefore, one would think that there would be some conflict at least between the parents (matchmaking) and the Council (pushes for births to build their Alpha Guard), but sadly no. I do wish that the author went into more detail about the Pack Wars and how they select their Council. I can only assume I will get the answers I need in the next book.
Since she burst spectacularly into view with her debut novel almost two decades ago, Zadie Smith has established herself not just as one of the world’s preeminent fiction writers but also a brilliant and singular essayist.

Loved this entry in the OmegaDate series! Indigo (Indy) is a sweet, spiritual Omega with a history of past domestic abuse. Aaron is an Alpha who doesn’t believe in fated connections, spirits, and such. Aaron is a bit rough around the edges, and isn’t looking for anything long term. Aaron isn’t a bad guy; he’s just set in the beliefs he grew up with, and it’s obvious he never had the close relationship with his family that Indy has with his mother and sister. He seems like a bit of a self-absorbed jerk, just looking for a lay, at first. His growth and development were a big part of what made the book so enjoyable for me. Being with Indy works magic on him! There is a bit of angst, and of course the brief discussion of previous abuse, but it is not overwrought or detailed. I wanted to see Dominic get his comeuppance and for him to see what he missed out on, but it was enough for Indigo to get his HEA and never think about Dominic again.
‘Home’ is a small house in a neighborhood that never changes, where the weather is always sunny and there’s no need to buy groceries, mow the grass or pay the bills. ‘Home’ is a place where Sam can return to and be the old Sam, not the King of Hell.‘Home’ is where Dean lives.A place created by Sam, a golden cage in Hell, but their home nonetheless.
Dean’s heart jumped and his stomach twisted when he began to see a brighter light start to release from him. Castiel’s hands finally made it out of the hunter and all of the angel’s stared in awe at the bright beacon of light that he in his hands.
2. WORM FOOD by Elysium2: The battle is over, but Harry is still fighting. He’s thanking his lucky stars that he learnt long ago how to properly ignore his problems. And Draco Malfoy. ***Very original plot and excellent writing. Gave me all the feels. This is another that I want to draw fan art to. Super love.
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.
“Weird reproduction of the patriarchy? if that makes sense? I hate Omegaverse fics where biological determinism applies and all the Alphas are big strong manly men with giant cocks who want to dominate and consume and all the Omegas are tiny and delicate and submissive. Gross gender dynamics irl, absolutely no reason to reproduce them in speculative fiction. Again, I can kind of see how this might be a fantasy for some people, but it really rubs me the wrong way. I just prefer relationships where both partners are equal and any kind of powerplay is short-term and well negotiated in advance.” (Em, female, bi, 25-30, USA)
Since 2000, several hoax web sites have appeared on the Internet purporting to describe the world’s first pregnant man. While sometimes relying on legitimate scientific claims, in reality, no such experiment has ever been reported. Fertility clinician Cecil Jacobson claimed to have transplanted a fertilized egg from a female baboon to the omentum in the abdominal cavity of a male baboon in the mid-1960s, which then carried the fetus for four months; however, Jacobson did not publish his claims in a scientific journal, and was subsequently convicted on several unrelated counts of fraud for ethical misconduct.
Castiel’s hand shook as he went to move it towards Dean’s center. He swiftly tore the shirt right off of the body to reveal the smooth, toned abs. He gasped to see Dean’s skin glowing a vibrant bright white at his core.
“The rape aspect of heat. I admit to reading those fics as well sometimes when the mood strikes, but only if its addressed as non-con. Putting a “biology” stamp on it and shrugging the rape away as “true love” gets too close to very real problems in our world and should not be idolized as such.” (missingnolovefic, female, queer, 18-25, Germany)
Thor smiled as a maid helped him dress (Name) in proper Asgardian infant attire. “Does your father approve of (Name)?” the maid asked as she handed a well-dressed (Name) to her father. For a moment Thor’s brow crinkled. “He has not truly met (Name) before. Tonight will be their first official meeting,” he murmured the woman. Thor masked his worry and took his child. He waved to the maid and whistled on his way to a dining hall.
I stood in front of my parents sitting in front of me and gulped. “I’m…I’m pregnant.” My mom instantly burst into tears and my dad looked ashamed. “What about that football scholarship, son? What about your life?” my

And while magpieinthemorning (female, bi, 30-40, Germany) dislikes “romanticizing and normalizing the existing gender oppression in our society” when it comes to A/B/O, she adds: “Disclaimer: it’s possible that the couple of omegaverse fics I read were extreme and not representative of the genre. However, they were widely recommended by members of the fandom (that’s how I found them).”
