Slow Heat by Leta Blake Review
Slow Heat - Leta Blake

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.

Stitching Snow - R.C. Lewis
“Feelings can’t be wasted. Knowing they’re real for however long they last makes worth having.”

You know you’ve read a really good book when you start comparing it to other books with the same genre. Stitching Snow had a very similar vibe to Marissa Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles: the sci-fi feel and fairy tale reimagining. It was no wonder that I was drawn to Stitching Snow. But how far did it go to impress a fairy tale retelling junkie like me?

Stitching Snow offers its readers a not so typical protagonist. Essie, aka Princess Snow – that’s not a spoiler by the way, you’ll probably guess it around a chapter or two – is not your dainty little princess in distress. She’s a mechanic/robotics technician by day and a cage fighter by night…well, some nights. She lives a simple life on the planet Thanda, which eventually changes when a mysterious guy named Dane accidentally crashes into the planet…

Essie and Dane were characters I find likable, but I have to admit there’s not much to go on from there, other than their hidden identities. When all that is revealed, I felt like they didn’t come out as strong and as memorable characters that I was hoping them to be. They’re not the kind of characters that would be the first ones to come to mind when a random question about book characters would come about. Nevertheless, for Stitching Snow, they are the kind of characters you would appreciate reading about.

While the title “Stitching Snow” was first a mystery to me, finding out why was a fascinating spin. Although I felt that the numerous “stitching” parts were a little too time consuming, it was balanced out with the right amount of action packed and romantic scenes throughout Essie and Dane’s journey.

Stitching Snow is more likely a lighter take on the science fiction slash fairy tale reimagining mix. It may not be as epic as Cinder and the rest of the Lunar Chronicles books, but it is a good addition into the genre. Also, I’m happy to see that this wasn’t a series, not that it doesn’t deserve such, nor would I say no to another book, but the story was already as good as it could get. I really appreciated the kind of closure readers of this book were given.

*Thank you, Disney-Hyperion for granting my request to view Stitching Snow.
