Summary

Lucas has big plans. He wants to graduate, go to law-school, and become an advocate for omega rights. To accomplish all that, though, there's a secret he needs to keep - no one can ever discover that he’s omega. So far, everything’s gone to plan, until he finds himself rooming with the hottest alpha on campus.

At first glance, Adam seems to have it all. He's an alpha, a star player on the college football team, and heir to his parents' extremely successful business. His future is secure, except it's not the future he wants. He's not interested in their money or the willing omegas with whom his mother would love to set him up. What he is interested in is his new roommate, though he knows his chances are slim. Lucas is a beta after all, and beta males are rarely interested in other men. Still, he has to try his luck, even if it means disappointing his parents.

A drink too many at a frat party leads to a night of passion and unexpected consequences for both young men. While Lucas fights to save the career he’s always dreamed of, Adam fights to save the family he never knew he wanted. And they learn that, together, all battles can be won.

Amazing

This is te first time that I have read this author and I absolutely loved this book, the story was beautiful. The dynamic between Lucas and Adam is just lovely and their transition from roommates/friends to lovers was very sweet. The writing was amazing, which was brought to life by the narratiion. If you love mpreg then I would really would recommend this book and I will be looking up other books by the author.

So Good

Adam and Lucas story is a really great way to unwind, I make no secret that I love these two authors and this didn't disappoint me at all. John Solo once again gave this such depth each character came to life.Both MCs have problems but their chemistry is off the charts, another Audible that I will be listening to again, definitely recommended.

Great story, great audio performance!

Roommates is a really sweet story about Lucas, an omega pretending to be a beta, and his sexy alpha roommate, Adam. One night they finally give into their attraction for each other and Lucas ends up pregnant. The story is so much more than that simple statement.

Watching their relationship develop as they come to terms with Lucas being pregnant was a really good and touching story. I felt sad for Lucas that his being an omega was going to jeopardize his plan to become an attorney so he can advocate for omega rights. I was pleased with how Adam reacted and handled the news of Lucas’ pregnancy.

There’s a reason that John Solo is on my list of favorite audiobook performers. The different voices he uses for the characters in this book make it easy to distinguish who is speaking and I just love listening to him perform. He doesn’t just read the book, he acts it out and brings the characters to life.

A complimentary copy of this audiobook was provided to me at my request but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author and/or narrator.

Fabulous Story & Narration🎧 A Heartfelt Delight!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it is well written with interesting and original storylines that are captivating from start to end. I adored the two lead characters, Lucas and Adam, college students who were paired to gather as roommates. Adam, an omega, is studying law with plans of becoming an advocate for Omega rights. He is not happy with the way Omegas are treated and wants to change that so they have more opportunities and choices. He has gotten far in his studies because everyone is under the impression that he is a beta, including Adam. Adam, an alpha and a member of the college’ football team. His family have plans for him to join their business but that is not what he wants. He does want Lucas and after a few drinks the two wind up hooking up for a night of sizzling passion. That night lead to something unexpected, something that threatens Lucas’s future career and something Adam did not know he wanted or was ready for. I loved how everything plays out in this book, the story is nicely plotted and contains a whole lot of heart. I was impressed how supportive Lucas’ parents were and how they handled the whole situation, I was happy with the way Adam handled the news and what he did about it. Ann-Katrin Byrde, thank you for another enjoyable and entertaining story, I loved every minute of it.

🎧📚🎧 And for the fabulous narration, John Solo is a talented narrator and voice artist. He does a great job bringing these characters to life, giving each their own distinct voice which makes it easy to follow along and know who is who. His portrayal of the characters is spot on, he grasps their persona, takes the role and makes it his own. He sets the perfect tone for the story, captures the character’s emotions and projects them into his performance. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another awesome listen.

All It Takes Is One Mistake

The Roommate is part of the Oceanport Omegas/Second Chance universe, but it can be read as a standalone very easily. This is an omegaverse book with Alpha/Beta/Omega tropes and mpreg. I suggest reading this book after reading all the books in the Oceanport Omegas series but before you read Second Chances.

Lucas is an omega who’s been masquerading as a beta most of his life. A freak twist of fate has him falling into bed with his alpha roommate. The consequences of that night forces Lucas and Adam, his alpha roommate, to make difficult choices for their future. This book was really interesting and it helped to flesh out the Oceanport Omegas universe even more.

Sweet

It’s no secret that A/B/O is not a first choice but when it comes to a very small selection of authors I will make an exception. Ann-Katrin is one of those authors.

In Roommates we get to experience a very progressive approach to the alpha/Omega dynamic. From the start we know that the characters are both quite progressive because they don’t want to go along with societies expectations of their labels. We get to experience the strong, powerful and intelligent Omega who doesn’t dream of babies and homemaking. We get to experience the soft and sweet Alpha who doesn’t care about societies expectations or his parents demands.

Ann did a really great job bringing these characters together, progressing the story along and building the suspense. Much like love does, this story creeps up on you and before you know it you are hooked! I really enjoyed the ending too, because for the progressive couple of course they wouldn’t have a typical experience in their lives but listeners get the HEA they crave from this story. And it’s a sweet HEA to boot.

John solo blows me away again with a fantastic performance. As always he excels at bringing the written word into a moving picture in your mind. I know if an audiobook is done by John to expect it’s going to be great!

So Much Fun, John Solo is Wonderful!

My second book by Ann-Katrin Byrde and this one is just as much fun!

Roommates is listed as being part of the Oceanport Omegas universe, but I didn't have any trouble enjoying this one as a standalone.

Ann-Katrin Byrde has laid down an interesting Omegaverse. There are alphas, betas, and omegas, as well as males and females. I enjoy getting this variety in the culture and the impact that creativity can add to the stories.

The audio is performed by John Solo who does a wonderful job with these characters. His wide variety of voices suits this cast perfectly (the one he uses for Adam is adorable).

Light on angst, a super sweet romance, and an interesting storyline, I'm looking forward to exploring the Oceanside Omegas series.

Perfect in-between story

Ann- Katrin Byrde did a super job. This story takes place between the Oceanport Omega's and Second Chances series and was a great story. John Solo did a fantastic job with the narration.

Unconventional Alpha and Omega Romance

I enjoyed listening to this story. I am selective with mpreg stories, and this Roommates was a good pick.

The story touches a lot of societal serious issues, stereotypes and society’s expectations of alphas, betas and omegas. The conflict of the story was realistic & not far-fetched.

Lukas annoyed me in some parts. I wanted to shake some sense into him, but I also understood where he was coming from. And I just love Adam. I loved him even more when he fought for their future together. And I love that the whole story was not drawn out, that there was a conflict resolution and HEA without it being dragged out too long.

John Solo’s narration was just perfect. And I love Ann-Katrin’s nod to Mr. Solo with the name she gave the baby. 😉

An adorable opposites attract omegaverse romance!

This was a sweet opposites attract omegaverse romance!

Lucas wants to go to college and he can't let anyone know he's an omega.
Adam has a crush on his new roommate who also happens to Beta.
What are the chances that he could be interested in Adam as well?

This was such a cozy, feel good read.
The characters were likeable and sweet and the tone of the story was enjoyable.

John Solo's narration was flawless and he breathed life into the characters. An enjoyable listen overall.

Short and sweet

This was a cute and sweet story. Lucas, an Omega hiding his status so he can pursue a law career to advance Omega Rights, and Adam, an Alpha who is still searching for what he wants to do with his life. The story started out a bit slow, and I would have liked a bit more story line on them having a relationship before the "I love you's" but it didn't deter too much from the story.

If you want something sweet and entertaining, this story will fit the bill.

John Solo's narration was spot-on, as always, perfectly capturing the characters and feels of the story.

Or Something More

While this is a stand alone it is at the edge of the Oceanport series and some of the younger generation are side characters in this story. Lucas has big dreams and is willing to hide who he really is to get it. Adam knows who he is but is a bit confused about his feelings for his roommate. Of course things get out of hand and then a whole lot of truth has to come out. But Adam is strong enough to go with the roll and continue to support Lucas' dreams. Lucas also learns that you can be true to yourself without sacrificing all your dreams. I loved how these two work it out and get it together.

Cute!

This was a very cute opposites attract kind of story. It's not every day you read an omega hiding as a beta but makes me think about woman in our own society.

This is a great feel good book with some yr at action and wonderful narration.
