Mpreg non-shifter Romance
Riley West is an alpha whose music career is exploding. While he has millions of adoring fans, he also has a secret that makes it impossible to live his life how he’d like; he’s still reluctantly in the closet at the urging of his longtime manager. Three years of a grueling tour schedule have made him lonely and yearning for something more than just stolen one night stands. He wants to come out and take a chance that his fans will still support him.
Colin Robinson is a solar eclipse omega and also a bodyguard for Shield. He doesn’t really know anything about Riley when they first meet, but sparks fly and the two men enjoy a passionate night together. When Colin realizes Riley is in the closet, he makes it clear he’d never have been with him if he’d known. It’s a hard decision because he truly feels a connection to
Riley and he wants more.
Riley doesn’t want to say goodbye to Colin, so he hires Colin to be his bodyguard while on tour. Colin agrees, but makes it clear their relationship must remain professional as long as Riley is in the closet and his employer.
But sometimes things are easier said than done. Mistakes happen. The problem is, when you’re a solar eclipse omega, one night of weakness usually means the pitter-patter of little feet won’t be far behind.
This is a heartwarming, but steamy, 67,000 word story featuring a non-shifter Alpha/Omega world and contains mpreg (male pregnancy). This is a standalone story and Book Two in the: Bodyguards and Babies mpreg series. No cliffhangers and HEA guaranteed.
Review: Good Read
This is my first review for m/m, but not my first read.
Let’s talk about babies. Collin is a solar eclipse omega, which makes him a rare find. Even his own kind don’t know he exists. So when he starts working for Riley, a sexy alpha rock star, he knows he’s going to have some long hours. They both do an admirable job resisting the pull, until they can’t take it any longer. Problem is, Collin has issues in his past that make him wary of relationships and the fact that Riley is an alpha makes them worse. Add in baby, and the mental anguish steps up to a whole new level. Lucky for him, Riley is determined and in love.
I really liked this book. It’s well-written and sweet. The only problem I had was that I didn’t find the backstory that gives the groundwork for this world. It took until almost the end for me to find out for sure that the boys are wolves. Still didn’t answer most of the questions, though. Are they shifters? Is the alpha/omega bond always a same sex thing? How do they tell who’s who? Is it pheromones? Do humans ever sneak under the radar? I’m going to have to read the first book to see if anything becomes clearer.
*Edit: I went back and read the first book, My Omega’s Baby. All my questions were answered. I would have liked to had them answered in this installment, as well, though.
