If you haven’t read the genre before, in a nutshell, Omegaverse is a world that developed on fanfic sites such as AO3. It has a wolf like dynamic with alpha’s (the men and women in charge), beta’s (general population) and omega’s (very attractive to alpha’s and the only ones that alpha’s can reproduce with). These are NOT shifter books, instead they are more like humans but the omega has heats and individuals can be identified as alpha, beta or omega by their scent. Alpha males usually produce a ‘knot’ at the base of their penis, which ties them to the female (usually an omega) during sex. Many books in the genre are quite dark, with alphas forcing themselves on omegas, regardless of what the omega wants.
My Review – 4.5 Stars
Winning His Omega is one action packed and steaming hot sci-fi romance. Whilst set in an omegaverse world, the stories are not as dark as many of the genre. This makes them ideal to those who want an M/F read but don’t like the violence and dubious consent typical of this setting. Even if you do like those darker reads (which I happily admit I do), this is still a well written and very entertaining read. It can be read stand alone, the author has written quite a detail prologue to catch you up on the small amount of backstory you need to know. For me it was perhaps a little too much detail, but then I’ve read all three books. If I was new to the series I might not agree with myself! It’s also only a few pages really, and you’re never going to please everyone all of the time.
I really like the different dynamic in these books. Whilst omegas are still sort after and not necessarily safe from less scrupulous alphas, they are afforded more respect by most. Red is a wonderfully feisty heroine, as fiery as her hair colour and determined to make her own way in the world. Life would be wonderful if it wasn’t for the ever glowering and slightly annoying alpha, Rainor.
Our hero appears in a few scenes in book #1, The Omega Prize, that appearance isn’t really linked to this story but it did leave me with an idea of his character. I have to say I really quite liked Rainor. He’s a pretty decent guy and with his tattoo-like draka and beard he’s a very sexy one too.
The real adventure begins when they find themselves alone on a spaceship and attacked by pirates. They have to put aside their animosity and work together if they are to escape. I loved how the story unfolded from here. My attention was held throughout, the pace was really good, the writing flowed really smoothly and we were treated to some very steamy encounters too. This is definitely my favourite book of the series so far.
Red is a strong-willed omega who isn’t afraid to be herself and doesn’t want anyone’s charity or protection.
Rainor was a playboy who’s feeling the urge to settle down and something about Red keeps drawing him. He can’t resist scaring off any male that gets close to her. If he cant have her, no one can.
When the ship they’re on gets hijacked by pirates, they have to rely on each other to win control of it back. Will it finally break the stalemate between them?
This is Book 3 in the Sci-fi Omegaverse series, The Legion Omegas. This book does not end on a cliffhanger and can be read as a standalone, though it will make more sense if read after Book 2, Saving the Omegas. This book has mature content and is intended for an adult audience.
