He knows best…
For nineteen years all Chuey needed to worry about was survival. Now that he’s safe, rescued from the jungles by his adoptive father, Logan, he can start discovering who he is and what he wants. What he wants is Ryder, the leader of an allied pack of wolf hybrid shifters. But Logan wants Chuey to have nothing to do with the older biker. He does all he can to keep them apart, including threatening the fragile friendship between the packs.
Ryder has made his fair share of enemies while leading his ragtag group of shifters. He’s made some allies too. That’s why when he senses that the son of one of his allies is his mate, he isn’t jumping for joy. The opposite. Chuey is new to the bear shifters and new to civilization in general. He doesn’t need an older man like Ryder handing him more problems. Especially a man who doesn’t only want Chuey to be his mate, but to be his boy as well.
Meanwhile, Ryder’s fiercest enemy of the moment, Marcos, is revving up an old feud. The world may be big, but their area of the world is small and Marcos doesn’t like Ryder’s pack encroaching on their territory. He uses the only tool he knows, violence, and when that violence reaches the feet of Ryder’s boy, Ryder decides it is time to end this feud for good.
Under His Care is the first book in the Hybrid Heat series. It features a May/Dec relationship, themes of dominance, light age play and a whole lot of steamy moments!

Chuey raised himself in the woods until his papa found and rescued him. The backstory of why he was shunned is something that wasn't clear to me. Maybe I missed it or maybe it wasn't detailed in the story. I'm not entirely sure. At first, I was a little put off by the way Chuey spoke. I wasn't sure about Chuey at first. His manner of speaking confused me. I wasn't certain if it was deliberate or not. Once I knew why he was speaking the way he was, I got used to it and stop noticing it.
Ryder is absolutely the dominant caretaker type. If you know me, you'll know I'm a sucker for those kind of guys! Just calling Chuey his boy is enough to get me hooked.
Ryder knows Chuey is his mate but to protect him, he tries to keep his distance. Chuey reads this as disinterest. His papa's inability to see Chuey as an adult only makes things more confusing and frustrating for him. But Chuey isn't like everyone else; his understanding of social interactions is limited. All he knows is Ryder makes him feel safe and he wants him.
I enjoyed the relationship between Ryder and Chuey. Not only an age gap but tastes of dominance and daddy/boy too. Chuey is innocent yet fierce. He survived on his own for a reason. Wanting to be taken care of doesn't mean he's weak and I love that. Strong bottoms make me cheer inside!
Another great book. Sexy with a bit of angst and sexy, sexy dominance and a lasting love. I am ultra excited to read book two!! I have a bunch in front of it but I have a feeling book two is going to cut its way to the front of the line. The summary sounds soooo good.
Four men, brought together by fate, connected in more powerful ways than they’d ever imagined.
Lidon, Vieno, Palani, and Enar are finding their way in their complicated relationship. For Vieno, it’s easy. He thrives in the care of his men, taking his place as their omega and focusing on rebuilding the ranch.
For Enar, it’s a lot harder to find his role…and himself. His struggles to accept himself and his place in the relationship create tension between him and his mates.
Palani keeps digging into the Melloni gene and the fraud case Lidon alerted him to. His investigation reveals a conspiracy that is bigger than any of them expected, and it endangers them all.
Lidon discovers powers he never knew he possessed. When his mates and his home are threatened, he steps into a legendary identity. With the help of new friends that become family, Lidon vows to protect what’s his.
Alpha’s Submission is an MMMM mpreg romance and the second book in the Irresistible Omegas series. It is not a stand-alone but continues the story from the first book. It ends with a HFN for our four men, but their storyline will continue in the next books.

If you haven't read the first book, do not jump in with book two. This is a connected series and needs to be read in order.
I reviewed book one of this series a while ago and gave it a three. If you don't remember why, I'll give you the gist. I didn't feel the chemistry between Palani and Vieno and their relationship was an important part of the story. Now onto book two! It jumps right back into the story and into bed, wink wink.
This foursome are incredible. While book one got me started, this one made me fall in love with each man. I love all of them, I truly do. Palani was my man in book one, Enar a close second; while Palani is still my favorite (he's awesome), the others are right there with him. They've become a true foursome, each with a different but important relationship. Vieno and Lindon is different than Vieno and Enar or Vieno and Palani. All the combos are like that. I enjoyed the differences. The theme of this book for me was the true realization of their love. They struggle but in the end, they fit together. The heart to hearts they had were as enjoyable as their steamy sex; that's not easy to do! And the new characters! I love the growing pack. I look forward to seeing what happens to Enar's brothers and the pack. Who will be added? I want to see them all, or at least some of them, find mates.
The conspiracy grows! Wow, I commend the author the intricate planning that must go into everything, weaving clues and tidbits throughout the series as new information comes out. Things get serious and complicated. Shit just got real people. I don't want to give anything away, so I'll just ask, how the heck are they going to come out of this on top? HOW?! What's going to happen? I NEED TO KNOW!
The mpreg part of the series will finally happen in book three, yay! I can't wait!
Having read the second book, I have to wonder if I'll perceive the first book differently when I reread it. All the groundwork laid in book one made book two great. I figured I would like it more but I hadn't anticipated how much. I want to read the third book. Like right now. Seriously, I want it now. I think we've all read a series where you get this fierce excitement to find out what happens in the next book; I'm in that place. I'm waiting Nora Phoenix! You've created a monster and it needs to be fed. It needs some preggo Vieno and overprotective future daddy Lidon. It needs more sassy Palani and sweet Enar. It needs to know more more about the conspiracy. IT. NEEDS. TO. KNOW.
