Note: Since I read the book with all three novels of the series included, I'll briefly review each of them individually but in the same post.
My Captain's Baby:
A secret omega. A protective alpha. An irresistible attraction.
Alpha Captain Zane Mayfield commands the special forces Delta Squad.
He’s wanted Specialist Aden Chandler since the man was assigned to his squad. The only issue is Aden is an alpha.
When an op goes sideways, Zane’s alpha instincts take over. All he cares about is keeping the snarky flirt of a sniper safe.
Specialist Aden Chandler lied about his omega status when he enlisted.
He has his dream job in the special forces and he’ll do what it takes to keep his dream alive, even if it means illegal suppressants and denying his need for his Captain.
But an op gone wrong changes everything and threatens to ruin both his and Captain Mayfield’s military career. Will Captain Mayfield choose duty over love? Or will Aden be proven once again that alphas can’t be trusted?
Aden is no wimpy omega. He is a legit badass sniper. No one suspects he's an omega because he isn't what people expect to see. The problem is omegas aren't in the special forces; if he's found out he'll likely lose the job he loves. His attraction to Zane can't go anywhere. It would risk them both.
A mission gone wrong leaves Aden without suppressants and his secret comes out (to Zane at least). His attraction to Aden, who he thought was an alpha too starts to make sense. Without the lie standing in their way, neither can deny their need for the other.
Despite his feelings for Zane, Aden wants to keep their relationship a secret. He doesn't want to lose his job. Unfortunately, he gets pregnant. He can't hide for long.
I enjoyed the personalities of the two characters, Aden especially. They had great chemistry together. The story had good flow and kept my attention well.
On a side note, recalling this story made me realize it reminds me a fan fiction story I've read a bunch of times. Both have omegas hiding their status and being forced out in the open by losing their suppressants. How can you go wrong with a theme like that! Hm...I'm going to have to read it again now.
Protecting the Omega is his mission. Falling in love is a whole different battle.
Sergeant First Class Kali Morris is the communications specialist for special forces Delta Squad. He's the love-em-and-leave-em type of alpha.
Kali finds his latest conquest the night before a mission, except he’s attracted to this omega more than he ever thought possible.
Sergeant Thomas Carter is an intelligent Omega, specializing in dead languages. He never expected to leave a base when he enlisted, preferring a desk job to running through the desert.
Alone, Thomas goes to a local bar to fight off his nerves and falls for the tempting alpha.
But when it turns out Sergeant Kali will be with him on the mission--Thomas’ heart is in as much danger as his life is.
Alpha Kali's duty is to complete the mission but his nature is to protect the Omega he's claimed.
Together, these men come together in a sizzling dance under the desert sky, but they must battle their instincts to fulfill their duties. And when those duties come before their hearts, they must face the battle for their love together.
Thomas is used to being safe in an office but his expertise is necessary for the mission to succeed. Nerves send him to a bar where he catches Kali's eye.
Kali is a bachelor to the core; mating isn't in his plans. Until Thomas walks in and rejects Kali's usual lines. With a little work, alcohol, and pheromones, the pair end up in bed together. The moment Kali leaves in the morning, he regrets it. Lucky for him, he gets a second chance when Thomas turns out to be the omega joining Delta Force for the mission.
Thomas is out of his element on the mission but when push comes to shove, he is as brave and strong as any of the Delta Forces soldiers. Another badass omega, which I very much like! I enjoyed this one as much as the first.
Saving His Omega:
An Omega in pain. An Alpha with the ability to heal.
Staff Sergeant Rory Shipmond saves lives. It’s his job in Delta Squad.
When Delta Squad rescues an American base from hostiles, he saves an omega who has been hurt more than Rory could ever imagine.
Damien Raoult learned early he can’t trust alphas as a rich Omega. His tech business attracts all type of attention and Damien claims to be bonded to his business.
Damien is visiting an American military base in Hong Kong, a base that the U.S.A. doesn’t admit exists, when it’s attacked by a gang in efforts to steal his weapon technology.
When the medical officer asks Damien if he’s okay, Damien wants to open up more than he has before. But, he can’t risk the pain, even if his Omega instincts tell him Staff Sergeant Shipmond is his Alpha.
Rory is determined to heal this Omega, not because it’s his duty, but because it’s his desire. He will win Damien’s trust and his heart, one way or another.
Damien's past has taught him not to trust alphas. He's no soldier but when he's kidnapped, Damien sacrifices himself to save others. When it comes to his personal life though, he's not quite as brave. He would rather protect himself by denying his mate, Rory, than take the chance at finding love and happiness. He is a one-night-stand kind of omega. Never allowing anyone to get close enough to hurt him again.
Rory knows Damien is his omega but when Damien brushes him off like what they are is nothing, he accepts it. Rory respects Damien's right to choice and won't force him into a relationship. It's hard not to like Rory; he's patient and loving. Trustworthy. Rory is able to make Damien drop his playboy facade and show his true self. And in those brief glimpses, love begins.
I was drawn more to Rory than Damien in this story. Rory's such a sweet, loyal, loving alpha. How can you not love someone so caring? He isn't concerned about what an alpha should be, you'll know what I'm referring to when you read the end of the story.
I enjoyed all three books in this series. These omegas weren't pushovers, they were strong and brave. I definitely need more badass omega stories! Their alphas were all different but they all respected their omegas as men. They didn't own their omegas, any more than their omegas owned them. There was more of an equality in the relationships than the typical alpha/omega stories. It wasn't about dominance or submission; it was about love. The pregnancies only added to the sweetness and love of the romances. I hope you enjoy these stories as much as I did.
