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 happy 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.
Leta Blake is a very good writer and this is a compelling world that she has built.
The heroes are a fascinating. The fated mated troupe is examined with care as is the aspects of age difference, fertility, and gender.
There are no women but this book is a lot of about women's rights or really the truth of being in the body that gives birth.
It is a heart breaking book but you will be believe in the HEA.
Why it is not a higher rated book for me is that I wanted more of the love story and some of the body issues of men giving birth just ... bleh. lol And I couldn't settle in with the tone of the book but I can see someone else really loving it.
