The premise, based on the blurb, sounded wonderful. However, IMO, the actual writing wasn’t that fabulous. Granted, this is my first experience reading a novella by this author, but I had difficulty with phrasing, lack of detail regarding the characters including more backstory, and a definite lack of connection to the characters. Again, this could just be me.

I truly believe that this story could have been fleshed out, maybe adding an additional 10 or 20K words, and I think I would have enjoyed it more.

But, I did love the premise, and the sex was certainly steamy.

Winston stared at the beta doctor in frustrations two weeks after the third artificial insemination procedure was completed. “Doctor, what are you talking about?”

“Artificial insemination doesn’t guarantee a one hundred percent success rate. I’m sorry, Mr. Reynolds.”

“Palmer. I haven’t changed my last name yet. Anyway, can we try it again?”

Harvey squeezed his hand under the table to reassure him, but he was agitated and more than a little heartbroken over three failures in a row. Ashton, Carlos, and Oliver stood behind them as their moral support. They had used Ashton’s sperm the first time around, but it didn’t take. Then, it was Carlos’s sperm for the second attempt. When the result was negative again, they went with Oliver’s sperm. The third time was supposed to be the charm. Or so they said. His heart sank when the doctor informed them that he wasn’t pregnant for the third time in a row.

“Mr. Palmer, we can do it as many times as you like, but I think the issue probably runs deeper.”

“Explain, please,” Harvey spoke up.

The doctor nodded. “Unlike an alpha-alpha, alpha-beta, or beta-beta pairing, an alpha-omega couple’s bond is much stronger in terms of their body chemistry. I’m not referring to the various couples’ levels of devotions or affections. However, the body chemistry is biological. Love is love, but there’s no denying that an alpha’s genes are programmed to match that of an omega’s. Having said that, due to the nature of the bond between Mr. Reynolds and Mr. Palmer, Mr. Palmer’s body will do its best to reject all sperms that don’t belong to his mate, which, in this case, is Mr. Reynolds, so I can’t be sure how many times we will have to repeat the procedure to obtain a positive result.”

“Are there no cases like ours in the past?” Winston inquired.

“Three similar cases are recorded. I’m sure you’re aware that omegas are extremely rare. However, privaculas fetis is even more uncommon in the case of an alpha-omega pairing.”

“Doctor, please get right to the point,” Oliver urged.

“The first couple stopped after their eighteenth unsuccessful attempt.”

“And the second one?” Ashton prompted.

“After their twenty-third. The third couple managed to get pregnant after their thirty-first. However, that particular couple sought the help from only one alpha friend, and the three of them grew really close by the time the procedure succeeded.”

Carlos whistled in amazement. “Damn. Is there any other option?”

Harvey noticed the doctor’s hesitation. “Doctor, what is it?”

“You can try adoption or…” The doctor trailed off. “Well, there’s no easy way to say this, but the successful couple that I mentioned earlier, they…Mr. Reynolds, what are your thoughts about adding a third mate? Preferably an alpha or a beta.”

Winston clamped his palm down onto Harvey’s thigh to prevent his mate from exploding. “Alpha!”

Winston observed as Harvey’s body trembled and the alpha’s breathing sped up out of anger. He watched as Harvey slowly closed his eyes. He noticed that all of the white in Harvey’s eyes had turned red. His alpha mate was growling deep in his throat. He grabbed Harvey’s head and pulled his mate toward his neck, allowing the alpha to scent him. Under the present circumstance, he was aware that only his omega scent would be able to stop Harvey from going feral due to the overwhelming alpha-possessiveness that burned deep within his mate. No one uttered a single word as Harvey sniffed at his neck. They all breathed out a sigh of relief when Harvey’s tensed-up body gradually relaxed.

A feral alpha was dangerous because he or she would be more of an animal than a human being in that particular state. The feral alpha would have elongated canines and razor-sharp claws. Only another alpha or a ferocious omega, who was trying to protect his or her children, would stand a chance against a feral alpha. The best and least bloody outcome would be to let the feral alpha inhale the calming scent of any available omega. After all, even a feral alpha would never harm an omega. It was nature’s way of making sure that the precious omegas were kept safe.

Harvey pulled back a little and gave Winston a sheepish smile. “I’m sorry. I just can’t—”

Winston shook his head and cupped both hands on Harvey’s cheeks. “Shh, I get it. It’s fine. We’re all okay.”

Harvey nodded before facing the doctor once again. “I apologize, doctor.”

“No, Mr. Reynolds. It’s my fault. I shouldn’t have crossed the boundary. I knew that you might react unfavorably to the suggestion, but I didn’t expect for something stronger to occur. I was ready to inject you with sedatives if things got out of control.”

Harvey chuckled. “You don’t have to. I’m okay now.”

“I can see that. Anyway, please keep in mind what I’ve told you earlier. Otherwise, we can continue with the procedure until it takes, but I can’t promise anything at this point.”

Winston sighed. “Thank you, doctor. Harvey and I understand that there’s no guarantee of a successful insemination. We will discuss the options. We will get back to you.”




Oliver hissed and gritted his teeth when he was jolted awake. He was sweaty all over from his hair all the way down to his ankles. It felt as if he was burning from the inside out. The most painful part of his body was his dick. He glanced at it and groaned. It was straining so hard that he had the feeling that it might explode in seconds. He couldn’t detect other colors through his sight because everything was imbued with redness. His eyes must have gone alpha-red.

The next thing he knew, he was crawling on the bed, growling at three other alphas, while a fertile omega was writhing on it. He was going to breed the omega. He had no qualm about killing any other alphas for the chance to fuck the omega. He was about to pounce and attack when the other three alphas snarled at him and also at one another. He could feel something inside him. He shook his head, attempting to clear his mind.


He moved back a little when he realized that he almost charged at his alpha mates. The other three alphas must have thought the same because they also retreated a little. After a few seconds, the lure of the omega’s slick overcame his senses. He approached the omega and pressed his nose against one side of the man’s neck.

“Alphas,” the omega whimpered.

The omega’s voice burst through Oliver’s clouded mind. “Winston, baby.”

“Alphas, please.”

He looked at the other three alphas as recognition gradually returned to him. Harvey, Ashton, and Carlos grinned at him. They were all right. The combined scent of ruts and heat had overtaken their senses for a moment, but the coherency was back. He yanked Harvey toward him by clasping his hand around the man’s neck. Then, he proceeded to press their lips together. When they separated, he pointed at Winston.

“Breed our omega, Harve.”

Harvey smirked at him, but didn’t give him any verbal response. Instead, he observed as Harvey lifted Winston’s ass up high and began to slurp on the copious amount of slick leaking out from the omega’s hole. His mouth watered as the scent of omega slick filled the air. He wanted a taste, but he would have to wait for his turn. As Winston’s first alpha mate, he felt that it was only right for Harvey to be the first one inside Winston.

However, it didn’t occur to him that Harvey had a different idea. He yelped when Harvey grabbed his head and pulled him down toward Winston’s cock. This was one instance when he didn’t mind being manhandled. He swallowed Winston’s dick all the way down his throat, tasting the precum and sucking on it as if his life depended on it. He watched through the side of his right eyes when Ashton inserted his head between him and Harvey, licking Winston’s balls like a greedy, starving man.

“Suck my dick, omega,” Carlos instructed.

Oliver turned to the other side and moaned when Winston’s lips clamped down on Carlos’s dick before the alpha slid down all the way to the base. He stretched out one arm and fondled Carlos’s balls, making the alpha whine out loud in pleasure. He would love to prolong the foreplay, but his rut was making him dizzy and hazy. He needed to fuck someone. He was more than ready to bury his dick inside one of the alphas.

“Let’s breed our omega together,” Harvey suggested.

Oliver and Ashton nodded with plenty of enthusiasm. In all honesty, he was more than ready to do anything just so he could obtain some relief for his aching dick at the moment. He had to clench his fists and waited patiently as Harvey lay down on the bed and dragged Winston away from Carlos’s cock. Winston protested for a second, but it turned into a desperate whine when the omega was straddling Harvey’s hips. Oliver and Ashton tried to be as gentle as they could while they positioned Winston’s hole right against the head of Harvey’s dick. Oliver had to bite his lips to stifle his moan as he watched Harvey’s dick being engulfed by Winston’s tight warmth.

“Fuck him with me, Oli,” Harvey instructed.

Oliver would love to brag that he was tender and romantic, but that would be a lie. He was horny as fuck. His rut was overwhelming him. The scent of three other alphas’ ruts and the delicious aroma of Winston’s heat were too much for him. He drove his dick into Winston’s hole with a little more force than he meant to, but Winston didn’t seem to care. He, Winston, and Harvey groaned at the same time. The heat inside Winston’s hole was incomparable, not to mention the tightness. It was even better when Ashton also thrust his long cock into the omega’s ass.

The sensation reminded him of the first time they had made love. He could feel the muscles of Winston’s ass massaging him while Ashton’s dick was throbbing right below his own. He almost came when Carlos fed his cock into Winston’s mouth, but the vision was even more incredible when the omega began to suck on the alpha’s dick like a wanton slut.
