Disclaimer MaleTAGA lustful young alpha meets his match in an older omega with a past.

Professor Vale Aman has crafted a good life for himself. An unbonded omega in his mid-thirties, he’s long since given up hope that he’ll meet a compatible alpha, let alone his destined mate. He’s fulfilled by his career, his poetry, his cat, and his friends.

When Jason Sabel, a much younger alpha, imprints on Vale in a shocking and public way, longings are ignited that can’t be ignored. Fighting their strong sexual urges, Jason and Vale must agree to contract with each other before they can consummate their passion.

But for Vale, being with Jason means giving up his independence and placing his future in the hands of an untested alpha–as well as facing the scars of his own tumultuous past. He isn’t sure it’s worth it. But Jason isn’t giving up his destined mate without a fight.

This is a stand alone gay romance novel, 118,000 words, with a strong HFN ending, as well as a well-crafted, non-shifter omegaverse, with alphas, betas, omegas, male pregnancy, heat, and knotting. Content warning for pregnancy loss and aftermath. addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da14Crystal Marie_s RamblingsTAG

This was a great read for me. I’m a sucker for mpreg stories, so I couldn’t wait to get started on this one.

Blake is one of my favorite authors as well, so I couldn’t wait to to see how this story played out.

I must admit, the blurb does tell it true — Jason imprints on Vale in a very VERY public way.  But it completely made sense how it happened as the story progressed.  Neither of them were “normal” by any means, and so it worked out for the both of them.

The pain and heartache that Vale has been through was horrible, and you could tell that just by his emotions.  How he wanted Jason, but wasn’t sure if he was willing to risk Jason’s future because of Vale’s past.

Jason was the completely normal boy/man. He knew what he wanted and didn’t want to wait for all the contracts to be signed and everything to be taken care of.  By breaking the rules, he risked so much, but he couldn’t stay away.

Overall, this book was a very emotional and heart wrenching read but it was so good that I can’t wait to re-read it again.
