Which makes it so sad that I didn’t like this story as much as I thought I would. This is now the 2nd book this week that I’ve read by authors I love (and would follow to the end of the earth) where the story didn’t work for me. The first book was Wheels Up by Annabeth Albert. My issues are kind of the same with both books.
I often find that MM romances cannot keep my interest long enough to get through to the end of the book. So often the author seems to go over the top with the interactions between the main characters and it just comes across as fake. This is not the case with Odin Nightshade’s work. This is only the second book by Odin I have read, and i have not read the others in this series but intend to do so when I have the chance. Odin has a way of weaving a tale that will pull you into the lives of the characters and bring them to life. You feel what they feel. You long for the things they long for. And you weep over things that happened in their pasts to scar them. Then, when the past is healed and they find their Happily Ever After, you find yourself tearing up and cheering for them.
Saved is the first book in A.M. Arthur’s new Breaking Free series. I have been eagerly 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.
They went on with their day, Jamie walked around the house trying to get the baby to drop. Jess cleaned the house because she knew the baby would be coming soon, after what she saw earlier that morning.
As I walked into the house my cat Mavis ran to me and licked my face a million times giving me kisses. I pet him and smiled. “Hi Mavis. I got you something awesome.” I said as I set the bags on the counter. “Sweet boy what are you doing?” I asked as he started to sniff the bags.
From the very first time Castiel met Dean Winchester he knew something was going to change drastically. Dean Winchester was rude, loud, and sometimes obnoxious, but he was also kind, brave and loving. From the very beginning Castiel felt a deep connection with him, something that he had never felt not even connected to the chorus of heaven. Although his brother, Sam, was just as brave and kind Castiel never felt the same connection; however thorough the years Sam managed to become one of his closest friends and Castiel realized that what he felt for Dean went past friendship.
So why do I bring that up? Because I thought it was cool to see two characters going through similar adjustments, deal with them similarly and yet differently. To see situations dealt with slightly differently and because of that evoke different emotions from me. It showcases the authors talent in writing diverse and thoughtful characters. I also liked seeing Jax and Karter overcome Jax not being able to speak as they worked through their difficulties and getting to know each other. That was one of my pushed “buttons”. There were just so many aspects to the story I really liked. “Meeting” Jax and Karter and being reunited with everyone else. Seeing Jax and Karter come together. Seeing just how much Karter has evolved from Saved. And watching the story unfold anxiously wondering what was going to happen.
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 watched the man squirm against the contraction as a small egg suddenly slipped out and he caught it, cleaning it and putting it on the bed beside the man. Another huge gush of fluids exited the man and he saw blood trickling out of his hole.
Spy hesitated, not sure if he wanted the man he loved to see him like this. But after Sniper had continued to rattle the door handle, he made the decision to let the Aussie in. Sniper walked in, and saw the state Spy was in.
For Levi, it has always been simple. Even though he does not want to, he will ascend the Obsidian Throne. Not for his own sake, but to bring peace to his people, to end the civil war in his kingdom, and preserve the precarious truce they share with the golden kingdom in the south.
I’ve tried plotting, and I’ve tried sitting down and start writing but found they were not for me. Every writer has their own writing technique. And what they prefer to write. If you’re wondering where I’m going with this, just give me a few minutes or seconds depending on how fast you read. Every fiction writer I know or have read their novels love romance. Romance is the central theme of their story, whether it’s gay or het fiction. But here is the difference. In het romance, a woman can get pregnant because it’s natural and it wouldn’t be looked at as weird. But when it comes to mpreg I notice some not all readers turn their nose up to it.
A chance meeting in the hotel’s elevator brings him close to his fated mate, Ezra. Ezra is a somewhat mysterious tiger shifter. Obviously having problems to settle down at one place, he has traveled the world, picking up random guys to fulfill his needs. Inexplicable attraction makes Ezra to follow after Matthew and together they travel on.
Hannes worked on his mate efficiently, taking care of the twins first, cutting the cord and showing him how to clean their faces from the crap on them. Both boys seemed to weigh nothing in his hands as he sat beside Eren with them in his hold now. His mates hand rested on his knee, and Hannes had given him something to dull the pain, before beginning to clean Eren’s torn backend
“Shh, it’s ok, you’re doing great. Just a little bit more and we can meet our baby. Don’t you want to meet him? It won’t be long now I promise.” Jared peppered his face with soft kisses and wiped at the sweat.
The book is very good, liked that either one was sure what was going to happen only that a baby was made and now they had to work on what to do now and one had a hard time in believing any of it was true that where the fun comes in, how they get to love one an other, want more of her books
