Omega’s Future (Mated to the Alpha #8) – Wolf Specter & Rosa Swann

26856377

“That first night made me fall in love with you like nothing ever had before.”

 

In a word: Read the thing. We’ve made it to the end of Mated to the Alpha with a fluffy little epilogue to tie everything up. It starts out a week after Levi’s birth with Ethan and Max bringing their baby boy home and dealing with the media. Then it jumps to three years later with a look at how everyone is continuing to be happy and in love. I was perfectly happy with this ending. I’m actually a bit sad that the story is over, but I think it ended in a good place. Ethan and Max are deeply in love and they seem to be doing well within their pack and the world at large. Toddler Levi is adorable and I wish we’d gotten to see more of that. There was a lot more dealings with Ethan’s family than I was expecting, but we got good closure with that so I can’t complain much. After having read the entire series I can say that, while some parts were a bit boring and the overall writing could’ve been better, I ultimately enjoyed the read. Max and Ethan are a great couple and their love was sweet even if their situation was a bit of a mess at times. I think I would’ve liked the series better if it had been written as one long novel, it might have flowed better that way. Omega’s Future was a good epilogue to the story and I’m really sad to see it end.

 

The Summary: (from Goodreads) Ethan is finally allowed to leave the hospital, a week after Levi is born. Though it’s not as easy as just stepping outside, it seems. The media have surrounded the hotel to see the new fathers.

Jump to three years into the future and meet toddler Levi and Ethan and Max who are getting ready to add even more people to the family.

Omega’s Future is the eighth and last story in the Mated to the Alpha series. This series contains an innocent human, a sexy alpha, naughty scenes and Mpreg (male pregnancy).

Omega’s Baby (Mated to the Alpha #7) – Wolf Specter & Rosa Swann

26703649

“It’s only a soft sound at first, but then raises in volume. A baby’s first cry.”

 

In a word: Read the thing. Cute is a very good word to describe Part 7 of Mated to the Alpha. At long last it’s October and time for Ethan’s pregnancy to be over. We’ve skipped straight from the wedding in Part 6 to the day of the birth of Max and Ethan’s child. There has apparently been a few things happening since the wedding, mostly concerning Ethan’s family. He’s been getting to know his father and aunt better, and his cousin Elias (Evie’s son with her Alpha mate) now works for Max and seems to live with Max and Ethan. Max and Ethan are still in love with each other and are excited for their baby to be born. The whole focus of this part was the birth of the baby (which is not told in any sort of graphic detail, and probably not totally accurate) and his first day of life. Max and Ethan are both enamoured with their new son, and reading about them with him is very cute indeed. The writing still isn’t the greatest, which dampened my enthusiasm a bit, but the emotions were all there. So now Max and Ethan’s family is finally complete, and it’s adorable. Total no-angst new family fluff and I am all here for it.

 

The Summary: (from Goodreads) It’s the end of the summer, October has just started and Ethan is trying to make light of his heavy situation.

When he wakes up Max in the middle of the night… They will have to face their most stressful night of their lives.
But in the end, it is all worth it when they hold their beautiful baby.

Omega’s Baby is the seventh story in the Mated to the Alpha series. This series contains an innocent human, a sexy alpha, naughty scenes and Mpreg (male pregnancy).

QR: Lights! Camera! Cupid!: Just Another Day (Bluewater Bay #6.1) – L. A. Witt

24520101

“We have dinner and watch movies all the time. Why should this be weird just because it happens to be February fourteenth?”

 

In a word: Read the thing!

 

The Summary: (from Goodreads) Cupid is visiting Bluewater Bay, and he’s leaving chaos in his wake.

Nothing’s been the same in this sleepy little logging town since Hollywood came to shoot the hit TV show Wolf’s Landing—especially Valentine’s Day.

In L.A. Witt’s Just Another Day, beloved actors Levi Pritchard and Carter Samuels have an announcement for their fans, while in Z.A. Maxfield’s I’ll Be There, actor Spencer Kepler and his boyfriend Nash Holly brave a blizzard and a fan convention to spend their first February the 14th together.

Of course, it’s not just TV stars celebrating the day. In Anne Tenino’s Helping Hand, an aspiring artist eager to escape Bluewater Bay decides he just might have a reason to stay: lust-inspiring logger Gabriel Savage. In S.E. Jakes’s No Easy Way, a local teacher reconnects with an old lover working security on the film set. And in Amy Lane’s Nascha, a Bluewater Bay elder recalls how his own unconventional family used to celebrate the holiday.

Real life may be nothing like TV, but when Cupid comes to town, there’s plenty of romance and drama to go around.

“Is there anything better than someone with nice legs wearing a pair of black stockings?”

 

In a word: Read the thing!

 

The Summary: (from Goodreads) Keisuke’s incredibly handsome best friend Masayuki has always rubbed him just a little bit the wrong way. Maybe it’s because Masayuki is rich, carefree, and so stunningly handsome that he can, and does, have any girl he wants? But one day, when Keisuke accidentally wears his older sister’s panty hose to gym class, it’s suddenly his hot friend who’s doing the rubbing…on Keisuke’s panty hose-clad legs! Has he unwittingly unleashed a secret fetish that will change their relationship forever?

Omega’s Wedding (Mated to the Alpha #6) – Wolf Specter & Rosa Swann

26369396

“Just a few hours and everything will be different, at least on paper. I’ll be the new official Alpha of the Powell pack, the eighth one in line, all first-born, and I’ll be Ethan’s husband, the first and only one.”

 

In a word: Read the thing. As the title probably makes obvious, we’ve finally reached Max and Ethan’s wedding. It’s been about a month since Part 5 and Max and Ethan have apparently been in hiding from the media the whole time. I hope their time away was somewhat relaxing because the stress seems to start as soon as they return as the media are camped out at the airport when they land. We do get a bit more insight as to why Max is so popular with the media, but the behaviour of the media here is despicable. But I tend to hate pushy reporters anyway, so me not liking them here was practically a given. Max has a surprise for Ethan when they get back and everything about it was the best part of this installment for me. I was honestly expecting Ethan’s mother, but luckily she doesn’t show up at all. Dodged that bullet. Ethan’s friend Tim doesn’t show up either, which I thought was weird. Alexia does, though, which I found annoying. The wedding/passing-of-the-Alpha-torch ceremony was kinda boring, I don’t think the writing was good enough to make it interesting. This part had some really good emotional moments and I really like how in love Ethan and Max are with each other. There wasn’t any sort of relationship conflict at any point here, which makes me a bit apprehensive for the next part, but I’m also looking forward to what’s coming next. So glad the fuss about the wedding is over though.

 

The Summary: (from Goodreads) It’s almost the big day, Ethan and Max are getting married. But it wouldn’t be them if they didn’t have quite a couple of hurdles to jump through before they reach the special “I do” moment.

Because before they start, Max has a very special gift for Ethan. Something that will change their lives forever.

And maybe, just maybe, it will heal Ethan too, let him come to terms with his own past.

Omega’s Wedding is the sixth story in the Mated to the Alpha series. This series contains an innocent human, a sexy alpha, naughty scenes and Mpreg (male pregnancy).

Omega’s Love (Mated to the Alpha #5) – Wolf Specter & Rosa Swann

26221383

“It feels so big inside, the happiness, the feeling of pride, that I’m afraid that if I let it go I won’t stop smiling until my face is all sore.”

 

In a word: Read the thing. This part felt very short, a lot shorter than the other parts. Which was weird because I actually found that this part was the most boring so far. There’s a major time jump here, it’s now nine weeks after Part 4 and Ethan and Max are on their way to the hospital for their first sonogram. I really liked this part because it was all about Max and Ethan and their love for each other and their growing family. This is also the part where Ethan finally tells Max that he loves him for the first time. I say finally because in-universe it’s taken nearly ten weeks to get to this point, but the way it’s written makes it feel like almost no time has passed since the last part so it’s not exactly ‘finally’ for the readers. Whatever, it was still cute. Immediately after that adorableness things get annoying again when Alexia forces her way back into the story by insisting that she, Ethan, and Max go to the baby stores in the mall. Alexia and Ethan have apparently become close friends during the time skip, but we don’t get much on that so it doesn’t feel natural. Also she still annoys me. This part ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, which makes me glad that I’m reading this all at once instead of having to wait weeks between each release. The cliffhanger in this is that the media is back to being an intrusive presence in Ethan and Max’s relationship. I do wish we’d get a proper explanation as to why Max is so important that the news media is interested in his every major life event. Maybe it has to do with him being an Alpha werewolf? But it’s never made clear one way or the other just why everyone wants up in his business all the time.

 

The Summary: (from Goodreads) It’s ten weeks since Ethan and Max met for the first time, ten weeks since Ethan got pregnant and it’s time for their first sonogram, their first sight of the baby.
This brings up feelings in Ethan he can no longer keep to himself and he finally whispers words to Max that the man has been waiting to hear for weeks.

But while they’re in their own little bubble, the outside world is about to crash into theirs. Leaving them reconsidering their priorities.

Omega’s Love is the fifth story in the Mated to the Alpha series. This series contains an innocent human, a sexy alpha, naughty scenes and Mpreg (male pregnancy).
