Summary

At the age of 20, I never thought I'd have to make the choice between true love or my soul.

Then again, I never thought I'd be faced with any of the terrible, wonderful, impossible things that exist in Lyle Carraway's world. The vampire is a weakness I never even knew I had, and when he whispers promises of immortality and sensual luxury, it's more temptation than I can handle.

Good Catholic boys from small towns aren't supposed to make deals with the devil, but I never counted on him being this hard to resist. Or being the key to the family I've always wanted. If I accept his forbidden gift and turn out to be a prized male omega, there's a chance I could bear his baby and his name.

Too bad my guilty conscience isn't the only force conspiring to keep us apart.

This is a standalone vampire mpreg romance and the first in a series.

Enjoyed the story, liked the narration

This was such a good story - a bit of a twist to typical vampire fare. I liked Henry a lot - a bit of a smartass with a good heart. After he save a vampires life? afterlife? he is given a 'choice' to be turned or truly die. Being a 'good' Catholic boy he chooses to die. I didn't think the book espoused on religion, more like a tongue in cheek look at how an individual uses their faith to live, (or die, as the case may be :) ). Lyle and his family were great. Loved the storyline, loved that Henry accepted that vampires could be charming but also monsters; just like his fellow humans.
The narration was good, but in my opinion, not quite right for the story. JJ Jenness was great as Henry - he captured his 'just-turned-20' tone. He was also good with Cora's voice. On the other hand, he was good, (but not great with the older), more mature voices, especially Lyle's - though he was a bit better with their dad. Overall, I enjoyed listening to the narration - it's definitely a good way to enjoy the book.
I requested and received a complimentary copy of this book. My opinions are voluntary.

Not bad

Mate stories are one of my favorites. Werewolves, vampires, shifters, and such. This was a great love story. I enjoyed the characters and their personalities. I had a difficult time getting past some inconsistencies with the story line, some editing mistakes, and some errors in the Audible reading. That is the main reason why I gave it only three stars. Overall, as my title says, not bad!

Wowza!

I can somewhat recall having a love/hate relationship with LC Davis, but the blurb on this one was intriguing—vampires, omegas, mpreg...love it all. But I am absolutely blown away by what I actually got!

Guys, this is GOOD. It’s a unique storyline of its own despite the typical paranormal tropes being present. There’s some mystery, a good romance, great characters that you really get to know and love and an amazing HEA. And all this is accomplished within 5 hours (hallelujah!). This is actually so good that I had to get the Kindle version and finish it that way first because I needed to know what happened faster than the audio could provide. I think this is my first audio with JJ Jenness and I wasn’t disappointed there, either! He provided the perfect voice for Henry.

If I could change ONE thing (and it’s big enough that I would be okay if it extended the audiobook by an hour or so), it would be the steamy times. There are a couple scenes—not particularly descriptive (definitely could be better there), but I would have preferred more. I would say overall that they were tastefully done—it’s just my personal preference to have more hot and steamy m/m action. Either way, I’ve already downloaded the next audiobook in this series and hope there will be more!

A different take on vampires

Henry is a young Catholic gay man. He hasn't really explored his sexuality because of his Catholic upbringing. Working as a waiter at a party, he discovers that the guests are all vampires! While saving the life of a female vamp, Henry is mortally wounded. The vamp's brother Lyle saves Henry with his blood, making Henry his Omega.

A bit of a different take on vampire stories. Lyle and family all live together in a mansion. Lyle's family is very accepting of Henry and Lyle. The way they took care of him and treated him was totally unexpected based on other vampire stories.

Good narration helped the story along. It will be interesting to see where the story goes in the next books in the series.

The Vampires Omega

One night changes Henry’s life forever. Working for a catering company has always been dull until that fateful night. When Henry puts his life on the line for a stranger, he finds that the things that go bump in the night are more than just stories. Can he follow his heart or will what his faith has drilled into him be what causes Henry to let his happy ever after slip away?

I was interested in the way this story started out but did not find myself getting lost in the story. There was too much religious overtones for me to enjoy the story and its characters. I know the blurb states that Henry is Catholic, but it just seemed to take over the story for me. I would have liked to see more depth to the characters and more chemistry. There is a good amount of action and some romance in this story. The hints of the ins and outs of the vampire life were interesting, and I would love to see more. Even though this is Henry’s story it seems that Cora’s life and love is almost as big or a bigger focus than Henry’s. It is nice when we get to see Henry and Lyle have some private and connecting time. Their story is a sweet one that has you rooting for love and understanding.

Enjoyable vampire Mpreg story

Enjoyable and entertaining vampire Mpreg story. The choice of JJ Janness as narrator provided a more light-hearted story in spite of the angst, danger, drama, betrayal, and blood-letting. It kept the story entertaining, and kept it from being a dark fantasy tale. The tit-for-tat strategies of the vampires and hunters seem destined to see a never-ending cycle of death and destruction, but maybe the mate choices of Lyle and his sister can change that. I liked that Lyle and his father respected Henry's beliefs and respected him enough to give him time to make his decision, instead of forcing a knee-jerk reaction and just killing him. I loved Henry's kindness and selflessness toward the people on both sides of the struggle, insisting that people not be hurt or killed. My only complaint about the story would be not hearing more of Lyle's thoughts and feelings. We learn pretty much everything that Henry is feeling, but all we know about Lyle's motivations comes from his father, until near the end when Lyle finally confesses how he feels.

The narration was more easy-going and perky, rather than dark and gloomy. Very enjoyable voices.

Ok Story. HORRIBLE Narration.

Omgosh, it took everything in me to finish listening to this story. The narration was so horrible. JJ Jenness really needs more practice in his voice characters. Each voice he used were so vapid, boring, and just plan exasperating to listen to. I'd rather hear fingernails being clawed down a chalkboard. I wanted to like this story, and in all honesty it had potential. But Mr. Jenness completely obliterated any Hope's of redemption. I think this is a series, or, a book2, if JJ Jenness is the narrator, I will not purchase.😣

Good start to the series

A complimentary audio was provided in exchange for an honest review.

I am a huge fan of LC Davis and will always try one of their books. I also enjoy a good vampire story, toss in mpreg and i am IN. This story was about what i expected since it's short, which means it was well written with a good plot, but nothing deep or world changing. The relationship between the MCs starts off rough and i don't know exactly when it changed to real love and wanting to be together because they wanted to, but it was nice to see them together. The side characters seemed to be filler which eh, but they helped move the plot along.

Overall i enjoyed this and would recommend to those who aren't expecting anything new in vampire romance, and aren't afraid of mpreg.

The narration...wow. i very much enjoyed this narrator and will listen to him again. JJ got the emotions of the characters and when action was happening his voice showed the urgency or tension or passion. I definitely recommend this narrator.

Not bad, but too much religion

Typical vampire mpreg, but the religious overtones started to get distracting from the story. narrator also read with a slightly nerdy overtone which made the romance feel a bit fake. 3/5

Interesting set up

When I saw this book, I was immediately intrigued. I love paranormal characters and I have come to appreciate a good mpreg book. I also haven't read anything by this author or listened to this narrator. A small part of me was wary. But I also love checking out new authors so I went into this with an open mind.

The narration in this audiobook was good. The narrators voice was pleasant and there were little variations between the characters voices. I only wish that there was a little bit more emoting. There was one error in the book where a character is called the wrong name, and it did take me out of the story. All in all, I did like the narration and would listen to the narrator again.

What's great about paranormal stories is that the world is the author's to create. I did like the setting created in this book. Unbeknownst to human beings, there are also paranormal beings living in the same world. This book focuses on vampires, who are currently feuding with hunters. It is not that uncommon of a trope in a vampire novel, but this author has made it different by adding that when a vampire is made, there are possibilities for the vamp to become an alpha or an omega, and be able to carry babies. Also, there is a mythology in this book about the effect of drinking a vampire's blood and the choices to be made after. I did find it interesting for sure.

Henry is a pretty typical character in a mm romance novel. He is a young gay man who has been ostracized by his family for being gay. He is trying to figure out what to do with his life and ends up working as waitstaff for a party but he doesn't know they are all vampires. Henry is pretty pure of heart and hasn't explored his sexuality because of his Catholic Faith. It makes him an interesting character that he keeps his innocence after being thrown out instead of letting anger or depression harden him. Even so, he can't resist the temptation that Lyle presents to him.

When Henry is fatally wounded saving a high ranking female vampire from hunters, her brother saves Henry's life by giving him blood. Henry has to choose to become a vampire or die so no one can get their hands on his blood. I think that is what makes him decide to become involved with Lyle. At this point he can't die without experiencing passion and if he becomes a vampire, he'll be sucking human blood. Either way, there's nothing to lose.

There are parts of me that feel like I really didn't know Lyle by the end of this book. There is some back story of his life discussed. His mother ended her life in a choice like the one Henry has to make. Lyle feels that she wanted to die rather than see her children become monsters (vampires). Knowing he believes that makes me feel for him so much, like he must have felt guilt and maybe repulsion at himself for being who he was born to be. That may be a parallel with how gay people feel when their parents aren't supportive of them, too. But still as much as I felt for him or that it might explain why he is kind of closed off, I feel like this is the only thing I know about him and I wish his character had been developed a little bit more.

So it's good that in this universe males can become omegas and carry children because Henry definitely seems to want them. It was just one of the many things that plagued him about being gay. There is a moment that felt very much like a moment in Breaking Dawn (Twilight). And that's not to say that I dislike the Twilight series, because at the time they came out, I loved them hard. It was just kind of an eye roll at the similarity.

I don't want it to seem like I didn't like this book, because it was good. There is some tension and the violence amps up between the hunters and the vampires. It helps Henry figure out what he wants to do regarding his life or death choices. It also brings a match for Lyle's sister and alliances that I think will help in the ongoing battles. I think the fight between the different types of beings will continue into the future books in the series. I haven't checked them out yet, but I definitely want to.
