Prince Killian's father, the alpha of Whitewood pack, is desperate for their royal lineage to continue. The pressure for Killian to find a mate is a heavy burden on his shoulders. It’s a burden he doesn't want - especially when his father forces him to choose an omega mate on the spot during a pack-wide televised broadcast.
Scout is a desperate omega stuck at the bottom of the social ladder. He has no money, a dead-end job, and worst of all, no mate. The only thing he has is a crazy idea. He’s only got one shot to grab Prince Killian’s attention – and no backup plan if it fails.
When their eyes meet, neither one can deny the spark between them - but is a spark enough to get them through the danger that lies ahead?

I found this via one of the events in the FB group. I love adding to my new authors and books to-read list! They GROW! MUHAHAHA! Yeah, I know. I'm weird but weird people are fun...soooo.
Scout is a nobody but he's brave and bold. I like boldness in an omega. He takes a huge risk with his inadvisable plan but desperation and hope drive him. Killian is a prince who isn't blind to his father's faults. He's a good man with a compassionate heart. I love Scout and Killian. Scout's bravery saves lives and makes things better for others. He is an omega to be proud of and look up to. Killian is an equal-minded alpha. He doesn't see Scout as below him, although he does have an alpha's need to protect his omega.
I didn't love the fight scenes. The Whitewood pack was easily ambushed, no matter if it was one or two or a group of them. In the ending fight scene, the author has Scout surrounded by a ton of people but the antagonist alpha somehow gets the jump on all of them. Yet sentences later, the alpha is described as being less than agile to say the least. It seemed contradictory to me that he could be incredibly quick one second and then an old, grizzled alpha slowed by laziness and age.
This is a great story if you are looking for a quick read. I read it in no time flat. I didn't lose interest, which can be a problem for me at times. Reading several books at once is not unknown to me; I do it often. This book feels like a complete story, which is important for a shorter story. No one wants to be left wanting, especially when you'll never get closure. Could it be fuller and more in depth? Absolutely but it works at the length it is. I feel like I could snap out a whole series in no time if the books are all this length. I look forward to more of the Whitewood pack series and Hawke Oakley.
Four men, brought together by fate, connected in more powerful ways than they’d ever imagined.
Lidon, the powerful alpha-cop, determined to never trust another partner—until he helps a vulnerable omega through his heat and connects with him in a way that leaves him reeling.
Enar, the alpha-doctor who dedicates his life to serving omegas who need his help. He works himself to the bone, anything to drown out his inner voices that scream at him he’s not a real alpha.
Palani, the sassy beta reporter who will do anything to save his omega lover and childhood friend, even if it means watching another man claim him.
Vieno, the omega who suffers from a medical condition that requires an alpha’s help. It was supposed to be sex, but his attraction to the alpha goes much deeper. But how can he betray his soulmate and lover Palani like this?
When Vieno’s freedom is endangered, he needs Lidon to save him. The alpha steps up, but the consequences of his choice are more far-reaching than anyone of them had foreseen.
Four men try to figure out what they are to each other amidst political unrest, investigations into corruption and fraud, a medical issue that is far bigger and more sinister than it seemed at first, and old legends that are turning out to be real.
Alpha’s Sacrifice is an MMMM mpreg gay romance and the first book in the Irresistible Omegas series. It is not a stand-alone and ends on a cliffhanger. Please note the triggers warnings in the front of the book.

This is the first MMMM book I've read, although I've read it in fan fiction before. I would like to reiterate from the summary, this is not a stand-alone book. The cliffhanger is more of a this is the end of part one; it's not the kind that will keep you up at night. I seem to have missed that part when I was reading the summary. Oops.
The foursome is two alphas, Lidon and Enar, a beta, Palani, and an omega, Vieno. Biology, especially omega biology, is a prominent topic in the book. Vieno's heats are killing him because Palani, as a beta, cannot satisfy him during them. That's where Enar and more importantly Lidon step in and everything gets complicated. To save Vieno, he has to mate with an alpha, which means Palani and Vieno can no longer be together.
Personally, I found Palani and Vieno's relationship baffling. For men claiming to love each other, their lack of intimacy confused me. While their behavior is explained in the book, it didn't make much difference in how I perceived their relationship. The angst of their break-up is an important theme of the book but I didn't feel any chemistry between them. Between Palani and Enar? Absolutely! Between Lidon and Vieno? Yup. But between Palani and Vieno, I was left feeling cold and confused. Their relationship is the anchor of the book and I couldn't feel it. It made the beginning of the book hard for me to get through and I didn't feel the emotions of the break-up to the degree I should have.
I enjoyed the last half of the book. I read faster and easier. Palani and Enar were my favorite to read about. Palani's got a mouth on him and Enar isn't the typical alpha. They have fantastic chemistry and the sex between them was delicious.
The investigation angle was well done. A conspiracy or two is definitely going on. Corrupt people making money via restriction of drugs for omegas for one. Secondly, who's responsible for causing the mutation and what were they trying to accomplish? A lot is left a mystery and I'm curious what will be discovered in book two.
I would not consider this a true MMMM story, more of a pre-MMMM. I suspect I will enjoy book two more than book one. I look forward to seeing how the four of them fit together and if it's as hot as Palani and Enar are in book one, I'll be a very happy woman. I hope book two comes out soon.
“No one likes having their secrets exposed, especially when they’re this hot!”
Nerdy, little omega, Dave, always told himself that he was too busy to have an alpha. He filled that hole in his life with an obsession with Chad, the star quarterback of his university’s football team. Dave anonymously shared his most lurid fantasies about Chad online; fan fiction, thirst tweets, the works. Dave never thought Chad would approach him looking for a tutor.
Chad had the hots for Dave for years. But after he accidentally caused Dave to get publicly humiliated, Chad could never work up the nerve to talk to the omega. One bad test grade gave Chad the perfect excuse to get close to the omega he’d been pining for, Dave was the best biology tutor on campus.
They both have dirty secrets they are keeping from each other. And they are both going to get exposed; one by a slip of the tongue, the other by a jealous rival. Will the truth be too much for them to handle? Or will it reveal they are a perfect match?

Dave lusts after Chad from afar, not realizing Chad is doing the same thing. Mutual secret lust is revealed thanks to hormones and scent after Chad gets up the courage to talk to Dave. Nerd + Jock = Steamy Love.
This book is the kind you'd grab if you are looking for a short, easy read. It felt like a guilty pleasure to me, especially for those familiar with fan fiction. It's a dream come true, fan fiction coming to life. Dave's damned pleased about it and what fan fiction writer wouldn't be?
Dave is smart and focuses on his studies when not dreaming about Chad's body. His greatest wish (aside from having Chad) seems to be going unnoticed. He is pretty invisible until a school newspaper article. Chad is the star quarterback. Very confident in his body and loves showing it off. However, he's not a cocky asshole. I liked both main characters. I've seen similar characters before but I'm not surprised, given the length of the book.
The story isn't anything unique or particularly special but I didn't need it to be. The antagonist's part in the story could have been written better at the end; the length could have been a detriment in the lack of development I felt. The negative that stands out the most is an easily fixed on. Parts of the first sex scene is repeated. As a reader, I found reading a section that is repeated disorienting. For a second, I thought maybe I'd skipped back a page or two on my kindle. I found out, I hadn't. Eliminating that repeated section would be helpful to get the momentum of the scene. It was disruptive to the flow and that tends to dig at me. The flow came back but the disruption wasn't easily forgotten. I'm a bit obsessive with flow. Sue me. (Don't really, I barely have two cents to rub together. Don't kick a girl when she's broke).
While mpreg is mentioned and does happen, it's not given a lot of plot time. This is more of an alpha/omega story than an actual mpreg story.
I enjoyed this book. It's the kind of book I'd go to when I'm tired and don't want to think a lot. It's a book to simply enjoy, not one for deep thoughts. Quick, short, sexy story. If you're looking for a book like that, this one is for you. I, personally, have my days I want a book like that. I'll be interested to see what else this author writes in the future.
Hi. My name is Jordan K Prince. I live and breathe MM fiction. I am particularly fond of mpreg; I can never get enough. I'm in the process of writing my first MM novel, mpreg, of course.
