I can understand the hesitancy of reading if this trope is new to you, it was brand new for me. But I can say I highly recommend it. I will definitely be seeking more of this type of universe, both from this author and others.
In many ways, this reminded me of a “Stormy Glenn”/Siren Erotic Romance type of erotic story, which usually focus on plenty of explicit heat and conflict with quick moving plots, rapidly developing relationships and simplistic dialog. This book has better dialog but much less drama, plot, and relationship conflict. Overall, it was a pleasantly diverting novella, providing a bit of knotting and potential Mpreg (male pregnancy) in a sweet, short Alpha and Omega story. The sizzle was present but relatively tame, punctuating an enjoyable if not overly heated quick and comforting read.
Braun Etting was raised to know his place as an omega by his alpha father’s cruel words and fast fists, and he expects nothing but violence from the alpha who may one day mate him. His older brother Kell mated a cruel alpha who abuses him daily, and Braun is terrified of that seemingly inevitable future. When Braun’s father dies in a car crash, leaving Braun an orphan, he’s sent to a halfway house for omegas. But on his fourth night there, he witnesses a horrifying crime that sends him fleeing to the streets alone—and edging into his first heat.
There were also some heavy political undertones as well that I an not sure I appreciated much. I read romance to escape reality and when that shitty reality leaks into my fantasy world in the name of a toy company it turned me off to the rest of the story.

“Merde” he groaned, leaning on his desk as another contraction racked his body. They were getting stronger and closer together. Each one felt like he was constantly being stabbed in the back. The irony didn’t escape Spy. He couldn’t help but think how ironic all of it was. He’d dated a few men and many women over the years. He’d got some of those women pregnant by accident, but he’d had no choice but to leave them. No doubt they would’ve had to have given the child up for adoption. And now he was, more or less, going through what they went through. Karma could work in mysterious ways sometimes no?
I usually don’t read these kind of themed books, but the author is such a great storyteller that she has reeled me in and now I’m hooked.. On to the next book of the series.. I received this story for free for an honest review
At the same time Matthew took his cellphone and called Ivan. “Ivan. It’s me Matthew. The reason Alfred is late is because his water broke while he was at McDonalds and I helped him give birth to your daughter. Yes…Yes they’re both fine. Yes I’ll wrap the two of them up and bring them home to you. Promise.” Hanging up Matthew smiled at his brother.
I have to say that I enjoyed this book. I cried for Ed, and I love it when a story pulls those emotions from me. Mal, is still my favorite character so I was hoping to see more of him than I did, but who doesn’t hope for more of their favorite character.
I love A.M. Arthur books and so when I saw this new direction for her (Omegaverse) it was a no brainer. I knew I’d be a buyer. She is a great writer with characters that the reader connects with. The romance is usually there, and the sexy times are hot. And this book has those things. You will really love the alpha, Tarek. His beta best friends are great. Omega Braun, while braver than you’d expect an omega to be, makes some really stupid decisions but you will still be pulling for him.
In DC Comics canon Kon-El gets half his genes from Clark Kent and half from Lex Luthor. This leads to some Smallville Clex fic where he is the result of mpreg rather than laboratory experiments. Pinky and the Brain from Animaniacs also have a genetic son together.
I couldn’t put this book down!!! It’s so great I powered through a migraine to finish this. Every time I laughed it made it worth it. Love you, Moore is my favorite but this one is now tied with it!!!! The writing is great, it’s easy to fall in love with each character. The way that she blends two worlds together seamlessly is amazing. A shifter series set in the world of her previous contemporary series is hilarious, and has amazingly funny ties back to that series as you see those series from a whole different point of view. My favorite parts are where she blends the two worlds. It’s got humor and love, what else do you need? I highly recommend this book and anything else written by this author.
Dyadic human males do not have the anatomy needed for natural embryonic and fetal development. The theoretical issue of male ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterine cavity) by implantation in biological males has been addressed by experts in the field of fertility medicine, who stress that the concept of ectopic implantation, while theoretically plausible, has never been attempted and would be difficult to justify – even for women lacking a uterus – owing to the extreme health risks to both the parent and child.
Matthew Bruner is a bear shifter destined for greatness. Or so that’s what he’s always been told. As the next in line to become alpha of his clan, Matthew’s days of singlehood are drawing to a close. Long since committed to a prearranged mating, Matthew finds himself feeling trapped and, worse, afraid. In a desperate attempt to prolong his freedom, Matthew flees his ancestral home and heads to the nearest city. It’s there that he meets Ezra Tier, a tiger shifter with a bad streak the size of a mountain.
In March 2011, the NCIS Gibbs/DiNozzo Centaur-fic Heat was posted by Kathana-grey, positing many of the same concepts used in early Omegaverse works but without the same terminology. Omegaverse elements included the submissive character going into heat, differentiated male biology, self-lubrication, fights for dominance, specific body postures to show submission, marathon sex, and a culture structured around differentiated biology.
Dean pops the first three buttons of his shirt and pulls the knot on his tie loose, leaving it to hang limply around his neck behind his V.P. identification card for Sandover. His arms hang heavily at his sides after he retrieves his discarded briefcase and the grocery bag from the local market.
His thoughts are consumed with crawling into his obscenely comfortable bed, wrapping himself around his mate and sleeping until Monday morning. He may be an alpha, but working three consecutive fourteen hour days can drag anyone down.
This book doesn’t end on a cliffhanger for Braun and Tarek but, if you love the story as much as I did, you won’t be able to wait to read the next in the series which is about Braun’s brother, Kell. Fortunately, Ms. Arthur won’t make you wait for long; Seen will release before the end of September. I’ve read it and I can tell you it’s even better than Saved.
Review: The genre of an “abused/tortured” Omega being rescued by hunky Alphas is one of my favorites, and this book has some nicely satisfying elements of this type of “Prince Charming” (or, in this case, Charming Princes) tale. The characters were nicely diversified, the emotions (good and bad) had some resonance, and despite a type of “fated mate” trope there were definitely some twists, turns, and potentially insurmountable obstacles in the story and the relationship.
Braun Etting is a young Omega living in an alternate version of the United States where no females and three classes of males exist – Alphas, Betas and Omegas. Alphas are the most powerful in physical, economic and social spheres. In order to reproduce, an Alpha must mate with an Omega while he is in heat and at his most fertile. Betas enjoy much of the same rights as Alphas, but they are unable to reproduce. Omegas are the nurturing parents, valued on …more
