Yes, Alpha (His Willing Omega, #1)
by Merel Pierce
Not just Yes, Alpha, but yes please and thank you very much Alpha!
This is a short read that managed to provide some great world building alongside making me fall in love with both Daniel and Meghan. Whilst Daniel is all alpha and Meghan an omega, this is not the dark omegaverse worlds we are more familiar with. Instead this is a BDSM story, heavy on the consent, lighter on the kink and chock full of heat. I adored this opening episode, which could in theory be read as a standalone, since it ends on a HFN note. However once you’ve experienced the sheer smexiness that is Daniel, and the beautiful soul that is Meghan you will not only want, but will also need, to follow their story until the end.
Meghan is a total newbie to the scene, so I felt that Daniel’s insistence on taking things slowly was perfect. I just know that the heat level will increase ten-fold in the next book, and Daniel will push Meghan to the very edges of her limits. I don’t want to spoil anything but there is a beautiful example of not only how consensual all activities are, but the depth of caring that Daniel showed to the relatively inexperienced Meghan, towards the end of the book. When you get to the piece of black fabric you’ll know what I mean. To my mind this was perfect, allowing Meghan to build trust with a man who was still relatively a stranger to her.
The book is written third person and, even though view points change fairly often, I never struggled with knowing which character I was following. Best of all the dual point of view really allowed me to get a feel of both characters, seeing the desperate loneliness of an isolated and misunderstood omega and the dominant but deeply caring nature of the alpha who was called by her. I just hope Merel Pierce cracks on with writing the next book as I already have a Daniel and Meghan shaped hole in my heart.
I don’t belong here.
A BDSM club isn’t a safe place for an unattached Omega.
I should know better, but I can’t help myself.
He’s just too perfect an Alpha to resist.
She’s so sweet and vulnerable,
I can hardly stand it.
She needs a real Alpha to show her how it’s meant to be.
She may not wear my mark,
but she’ll wear my collar.
