Secrets and Seductions

5 Stars

First, I want to start this by saying, I read the prequel first, Omega’s Secret, so I felt better going into this story. Second, I want to point out that for a lot of the reason’s people rated this book low, are reasons I rated this book so high. So let me explain 🙂

One of the things I really liked about this book were ALL THE DAMN SECRETS and I kept finding myself thinking…if they would just communicate…they just need to communicate. But I still liked watching it play out. I have read A LOT of Omegaverse that want their omegas pure, won’t let their omegas have their own thoughts, want them entirely submissive etc etc. In most of them, shoot, one book I read the Omega was SA’d by an alpha and got pregnant outside of heat, and it was one of my favorite Omegaverse I have read. And SHE WAS SHUNED BY HER FAMILY. She was blamed for it. It is not far fetched to believe that the Omegas in the Bonds of Steele Omegaverse do not get a fair shake. Violet and her sisters undergo years of mistreatment and oppression, so her reactions make sense to me. As a social worker, I have seen this in real life with clients. So, again, this behavior from not only Violet, but all the guys, do not seem that far of a stretch and I love them all for that.

I did find the new take (at least new to me) on the fact that she got pregnant by another Omega to be interesting. I do hope at some point that gets explored more. I do feel this book opens a lot of possibilities for other more progressive stories to follow Violet and her Pack. Hoping to learn more as we go. I liked all of their secrets and how it affected everyone’s decisions over time. It is almost like you could feel their collective release of breath when they finally let all the weight off.

The story definitely includes some spice once Violet lets herself go with these alphas and continues through the rest of the book. It probably starts around 50-60% of the book. Up until then it is slow, but heated.

Omega Alliance

By SK Reign

5 Stars

This book was just published. I missed sleep and dreamt about it when it was through. Pretty sure my brain subconsciously saved Dani, but I digress.

One of the things I liked about Omega Alliance was the freshness it brought. Now, for the amount of Omegaverse I have read, I haven’t quite read one like this, so that is what I am going off of. I like this dystopian aspect to it in that Omegas were dying off…so the Omega Alliance basically stole an Omega and make her the “people’s omega.” Packs can bid on what she wears, what activities she does, what she eats, everything about her life, and they can just watch her on screen. And then she is stolen.

Sin is so broken. She has been beaten and made to feel like she is nothing. When she is rescued, she is frightened even more now. While in captivity for all to see, people made choices for her. Now she is being made to make choices for herself for the first time since she can remember, and it makes her more terrified than just being a prisoner.

The book ends on a cliffhanger, but the second book comes out in March! So you do not have to wait long! It is a fairly quick read, at least I felt it was. I like SK’s writing style. I hope to see Sin grow into herself more, and based on the cliffhanger, I think we are going to see this Omega really shine in the next book. I can’t wait!

As far as spice goes, it is kind of low on the spice. There are some scenes, but not much. The Pack really tries to give Sin her space to figure herself out. Any kind of pleasure while imprisoned as the People’s Omega were always forced upon her, so there is not a rush.
