In most packs, an Omega, even one who couldn't breed, was treasured and would be revered and protected, not cast aside. But our pack was not like most packs, and I was not like most Omegas. I was human, so I understood why I was being sent to the auction. I didn't like it, but I understood it. Even if there had been affection for me, even if they had been willing to keep me as a pet (neither of these was the case, but an Omega could dream), Cal couldn't afford not to sell me.
Omegas were hard to come by worldwide. While I would have preferred to mate for love, it didn't seem that it was in the cards for me. I had taken over as pack Alpha five years earlier, and it was high time that I started adding to the pack population. Granted my pack is run less rigidly than some; the Betas in my pack are not just allowed to breed but actively encouraged to. Unfortunately, only a small number of Beta females are fertile enough to get pregnant, and I'll be damned if I am going to hump my way through the pack until I find the ones who are - which brought me full circle to why I was standing in line to pick up the bidding paddle at the auction house.
Less even than a marriage of convenience, purchasing an Omega at the auction was more of a long-term service contract, a means to an end, so what was an Alpha to do when he found his soul mate on the auction block?

"Short mpreg shifter story"
This is a very short, very sweet mpreg shifter story and the first in the series. It is like one of the better Siren books and has enough of a story not to be PWP. Pretty predictable and not a lot happens, but it But I hope we see the couple in other books as it ends abruptly with what I consider a HFN. I also had to deduct a star for the narrator. Although I have enjoyed his narration in other books, there was a very noticeable intake of breath throughout this book that was VERY annoying and really distracted me from enjoying the story. Also, some of his dialogue came out as whiney instead of "soft spoken" which is what I think he intended. It annoyed me enough that if I continue this series, I'll probably read the ebooks.
"ok story.......narrator did it no favors"
I enjoy a good shifter mm Romance or story. I think this one would have been better served if I had read it and not chosen the audio version. I could never really get into the story because of the Singsong delivery that the narrator used. most sentences ended with a question even if it wasn't a question and the last word or two of every sentence was almost sung. so while I like the story for the most part I just couldn't enjoy it because I chose the audio version instead of reading it.
"The narrator is absolutely frustrating!"
This narrator has a lot of potential but the inflections he adds to the end of each word drove me crazy! I'm 5 minutes in and can't take any more.
This book is amazing. you can not go wrong by reading this book. If you don't read it you are missing out big time. the author is amazing. I wish I could come up with something else besides amazing. but nothing is coming to mind. again if you don't read this book you are missing an amazing book. I
"Narration is awful"
Story is ok but narration kills it. The speech pattern drives me crazy. Not only is it bad but it's the same for all of the characters.
I loooooved this book but I HATED the narrator. The story was really good, just what I had been looking for.
"Mpreg & Knotting!"
There’s knotting and Mpreg in this series!! I’m so happy!
I liked the story, especially how sweet and understanding Clint was with Trevor, and look forward to continuing the series.
The narration though…had issues. From the audible intake of air for many sentences to the sometimes lilting way Collins would finish a sentence at times, making it seem like it was a question…while I kind of got used to both after a while, ultimately I didn’t think this was even close to Collins’ best work.
If someone was interested in Paranormal stories with excellent audio by Collins I’d steer them towards Charlie Cochet’s THIRDS series (under his Mark Westfield brand).
