Adult/18+ Read

 

Book Blurb

I am prey.
This is not pity talking, this is an acknowledgment of a fact.
I am small and weak; I am an Omega. I am a prize that men war over.
For a year, I have hidden in the distant corner of the Empire.
But I am running out of food, and I am running out of options.
That I must leave soon is not a decision for today, though, but a decision for tomorrow.
Only tomorrow’s choices never come.
For tonight brings strangers who remind me that I am prey.

Publisher’s Note: Prey is a fantasy reverse harem omegaverse with three stern Alphas, an Alpha wolf-shifter, and a stubborn Omega prey. It includes smoking hot sexual situations, spankings, and domestic discipline.

My Review

One wild ride! – 5 stars

Belle has spent much of her life in hiding since she revealed as an Omega and is clearly struggling to survive on her own. In step three uber-sexy and dominant Alpha Imperium Guards who unexpectedly come across her cottage whilst on a mission. These brothers never expected to be blessed with an Omega and as soon as they scent Belle they go all out to make her theirs, knowing that all their lives  will be changed forever… Cue one wild ride and one very lucky Omega!

If you are after a sweet romance with a slow burn this is cough cough, perhaps not the book for you. Although it has romantic moments it is an out and out lusty read – explicit, with plenty of down and dirty scenes and domestic discipline in the context of an Omegaverse. I loved how although Belle accepts her alphas, she is not a pushover and I enjoyed how the developing storyline showed how the bond between them strengthened as each day passes. Belle has plenty of sass and the read contains some humorous scenes and situations. I adored all of the Alphas, who have very different characters, my soft spot being for Nate, the wolf-shifter.

In the midst of the three brothers claiming Belle, there is also plenty of danger and suspense from those who seek to claim an Omega of their own. This thread woven into the rest of the plot certainly added to my enjoyment and I enjoyed the many twists and turns.

*REVIEW* ~ Raider’s Treasure (Alpha Barbarians Book 1), by Leann Ryans

Blurb

When Lyric’s quiet life is shattered by a group of alpha warriors attacking her village, her only thought is to escape.
Injured and caught by the man leading the attack, she is told in no uncertain terms that he plans to claim her as his when she goes into heat.

Is Lyric doomed to be a valuable to guard, but never treasure?

Previously published as Raider’s Bounty, this is book 1 of the Alpha Barbarians series. It contains detailed scenes, a HEA, and no cliffhanger. ***This is a slow-burn Omegaverse Romance in set a historical, barbarian culture***

My Review

A Hot and Sweet Omegaverse Treat – 5 stars

I hugely enjoyed reading about the world the author created in this book. Although not as dark as Omegaverse books penned by other authors, the hero Raider is still Alpha to the core. The romance is as the blurb states, a slow burn, but what a burn as there is oodles of sexual tension in this captor/captive romance and the sex when it comes is so much the better for it reflecting the personalities of the couple.

Raider gets off to the worst possible start with Lyric, not only leading the war band that has attacked her village, killing many but also injuring her in the process. I loved how he is firm but caring in helping Lyrica recover and welcomed how the author slowly but surely forges a growing connection between the couple. Lyrica is no simmering captive, despite her fear for her future and her injuries and Raider will not stand any nonsense from his captive who he has decided to claim as his own. The couple are a perfect foil for each other.

I enjoyed how the sparks fly when Lyrica is not afraid of making him fully aware of what she thinks of his actions and those of his war band. Will Lyric succumb to her enemy and regain her sense of worth? Can Raider tame his reluctant captive? Will she survive the journey and the many pitfalls along the way?

A real treat of a book that will warm your heart.
