Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would find my true mate in my ER. He’s handsome and everything I’ve ever wished for in a mate but will my age be a problem for him? And most importantly, what will the houseful of strays I’ve adopted think of Charlie? ~Dakota
Waking up in the hospital was not on my list of things to do but finding my true mate makes it worth the pain. My father pushed me out of our pack when I wouldn’t conform to his mold of what an alpha should be like but Dakota shows me I’m worthy of his love just the way I am. Not everyone in my instafamily welcomes me with open arms and I can’t help but wonder, ‘Will I ever find acceptance?’ ~Charlie
This 30,000 word novella is filled with adopted family feels, mpreg, and knotty fun and intended for 18 and over readers.

Dakota is an older omega who never thought he'd find a mate. Not only that, he'd adopted a bunch of kids into a mismatched family of shifters and one human. He is a strong omega.
Charlie is a lost alpha. He's rejected from his father and pack for not being the alpha his father wanted. No job, no house, no family, no nothing. Until Dakota and his odd family.
This might be the first novella length story I've given five cups. I enjoy novellas but I don't usually love them. However, this story got my attention. The unique family hooked me. I love all the kids, Isiah especially! I can't wait for their book!
This book has a lot of things I love: instalove, mates, shifters, and mpreg. Add in a strong omega and a supportive alpha and how could I resist? I loved that Charlie found home and himself with Dakota and the kids. He was accepted and loved by them in a way he never was by his father. Omega or not, Dakota is basically in charge of the family. I love how pampered he gets by Charlie, he deserves it!
I loved how this novella didn't feel lacking. I didn't feel the need for more. It could be partly because of the series nature and knowing I'll be seeing more of the family in the future books. If you want a quick but great read, pick this one!
During the week Simon Seymore is a good little bookmobile librarian. He lives and breathes his job providing library access to the rural towns south of Grayson City. But every weekend he heads to the bar in search of another alpha to go home with. If he preps himself beforehand, they never have to know his secret: Simon can't slick.
Omegas who can't slick can't have children either, and alphas aren't accepting of that. At twenty seven, Simon's learned that relationships simply aren't worth the risk. It's better to focus on his job, and stop dreaming about the mate he's never going to have.
Art Hitchens buried the love of his life five years ago. At forty five, he has no intention of chasing after omegas ever again. But when a bookmobile librarian shows up in his hometown and gives him a wild proposition, Art feels alive for the first time in years.
Simon may be too young for Art and slow to trust after being rejected so many times, but Art feels a need to take care of Simon that's impossible to ignore.
The Bookmobile Baby is a 48,000-word May/December romance with knotting, MPreg, BDSM, and a nurturing Dom. It's the second book in the Nerds Who Knot series, but it stands alone.

Simon has a heart of gold. He runs his little bum ragged trying to help out the tiny little towns with the bookmobile, off the books, of course. His boss's heart is more concerned with money than the literacy of the poor town.
Art is going through the motions of living but he's not doing much living. He expects to live without love for the rest of his life after his mate died. Simon changes things.
If you don't know, I LOVE age gap. I don't know why, I just do. Doesn't matter who is the alpha and who's the omega either, I've read some lovely young alphas with older omegas. Just. Give. Me. Age. Gap. And. I'm. Happy.
I loved this book so much. Simon and Art are hot as fuck together. FYI, they do it IN THE BOOKMOBILE! Yeah! I love that Simon isn't the perfect omega and Art is 100% okay with that. Art accepts Simon. We should all remember we don't have to be perfect to be loved and accepted, even in books.
What Amy Bellows does best though? Balancing angst. I'm an angst wuss. I don't like being sad. Reading is my escape, my happy place! Amy's books always have the perfect balance of angst. She'll hit you with it, hard. If I didn't cry, I sure felt like it. Yet, she doesn't let it linger too long. I don't have to wallow in the sadness so I get depressed (I've literally been put into a down mood from a book, I had to watch my fave happy movie to get out of the funk). She replaces the sadness with happiness as it should be. I adore this series! Read it if you haven't, you won't be disappointed! I am anxiously awaiting the next book!!

I confess I am way, WAY late on writing this review. I read this book months ago. However, between life and my health, it didn't get written. The brain fog I'd been having for probably two months finally lifted last week, yay! Time to get some reviews done. Better late than never, right? Onto the review.
As readers, we've always wondered, what happens after the book ends? This book addresses that question of what happens after Breakable Faith. Mateo and Lance got a happy ending but there was enough left unsaid for another story. Renewed Faith is that story. Mateo struggles a lot emotionally, dealing with the aftermath of his attack from the previous book. Lance's struggle is of balance. He lets his alpha instincts take control and they lead him away from his faith and the church.
I enjoyed Renewed Faith. Mateo and Lance are great characters. I love that I got to see the after, the what happens next. Them having a family!! It was what I expected and want in a what happens next kind of book. It was more of an internal struggle for each character to adapt and cope. Their lives and who they are changed. Change isn't easy or painless. Mateo and Lance find that out but in the end, they get through it together.
The two books are perfect to read right after each other and I know I'll be reading them in the future. Imagining what happens next is all well and good but it is nice to read what happens from the author's perspective too.
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.
