Hello, my friends!
I hope you are all having a lovely week.
Our Audiobook blitz continues today with a theme focused on Omegaverse. I hope that you find something new!
I’m just copying the bit about Audible below, so if you’ve already read the first post, skip ahead to the good stuff!
Please remember to check your library; audiobooks are often available to borrow! Also, if you have an audible subscription, please double-check if you own a kindle version of the book. Amazon will give you a discount on the audible version if you also have the kindle version (KU counts, so make sure you have the kindle version downloaded before you buy the audible!). The discount is often about half the price of a monthly Audible credit, so just make sure you shop smart and save those full audible credits for when you can’t get an easy discount.
I have an audible account and recommend it if you plan on doing a lot of audiobook listening. However, if you mostly listen to books available on Kindle Unlimited, it may not be worth it financially; cheaper to just buy the discounted audiobook ad-hoc.
As always, all images and descriptions are from Amazon. As an Amazon Associate, I earn commission from qualifying purchases.
Be well, and happy listening!
Drawing, my online clan, and planning my escape from my mother--these are priorities. Or, at least they were, until three huge alien Alphas came to abduct me and take me to their planet. But it's not just a simple process of probing and then releasing me back to Earth. All those movies are lies. These three males keep me. And I'm suddenly a cadet at an Omega Academy where I'm supposed to learn how to serve the Gretar Fleet. None of this makes any sense to begin with, nevermind the three Alphas I can't seem to avoid. But they say we have a connection, that we're a circle, whatever that means. And my body seems to agree, because anytime they're near, I can't seem to think of anything except Kyte's horns, Jeren's smirk, and Ceredes's long, hard ... sword. Focusing on class is almost impossible, and the Omega Academy isn't for the faint of heart. I have to learn who my enemies are, how to make friends, and how I fit with the three males I can't stop thinking about. All doable, right? No. Not right, especially when I discover the fleet has other plans for me. The bond with my three Alphas may be the only thing that can keep me safe, but that means we need to consummate our circle. Yeah, you read that right, consummate. Deep. Breaths.
Lily's Note: Omega Academy is a full-length novel and the first book of the Omega Academy trilogy.

I'm not sure what to think about this one. I started the sample, and before I knew it, I'd read the entire book. However, I didn't immediately download the next book in the series. I wonder if there was just too much happening, and yet not enough. I know that doesn't make any sense. It's an interesting take on the omegaverse in that this is a science fiction book rather than fantasy. Definitely read the sample if you don't have KU. If you have KU I'll be interested to hear if you end up just finishing the book like I did before you knew it.
Cyra, a rare Omega phoenix shifter, has had a rough week, to say the least.
First, two playboy Alphas, a hydra and a griffin, start showing up at the cafe she works at. Their teasing making her all hot and bothered, no matter how much she tries to ignore them. And then she accidentally accepts to play a princess at a spoiled shifter kid’s birthday party, where her crappy old car promptly breaks down. Luckily, or maybe she’s just cursed, a cerberus and a centaur Alpha are there to save the day and give her a ride home.
For years, Cyra has managed to hide herself from other shifters, pretending she’s human. Because she doesn’t want her parents to marry her off to a rich asshole Alpha for money and status or to be kidnapped and bred like some other rare Omega shifters. She wants her freedom, to be able to make her own choices, and both of those things are taken away the moment she’s mated. Once she’s claimed by an Alpha, she’ll become that Alpha’s property, and she refuses to live like that.
But now everything she’s worked so hard for is falling apart around her. Money is tight, and with her crappy car constantly needing repairs, she won’t be able to afford the medication she needs to stay hidden from shifters, especially with the mating season only weeks away.
So she makes a reckless decision and takes the cerberus and the centaur up on their offer to be their date to the yearly Night Gala, an exclusive shifter event for bachelor Alphas, Betas and Omegas, though it’s not uncommon for humans to attend too, as ‘dates’ or serving staff. Their offer is too tempting, one night of boring chats while looking pretty, and all her money problems will be solved.
That is, until the hydra and griffin Alphas also appear at the Night Gala and everything goes to hell…
This is the first book in the Her Shifter Harem’s Babies series, a paranormal Omegaverse reverse harem #WhyChoose story. This book may include any of these elements: steamy scenes, ‘I need tissues NOW’ moments, cries of ‘why, oh, why’ and cliffhangers that make you bite your nails (and curse the author). This story includes MF and MM scenes.

This is one of those omeverse series that made me a bit uncomfortable. I read this entire book and liked it. Apparently I liked it enough to purchase the next book, but I don't recall reading the second. I think I should give it a re-read, but on my first read it teetered over that non-consent line and I'd rather the characters overcome their biology. In Deep managed it well, in my opinion.
After surviving childhood at the snooty, stuck-up boarding school for budding omegas, I have everyone convinced I'm a dud.
My awakening? Never gonna happen. Heat, mates, and a fairytale pack life? Maybe next reincarnation.
All I want is to be left alone.
I'm invisible, headed to a blissful solo future until the Wyvern Pack destroys my dream of independence.
Atlas, Hunter, Finn, Jett, and Orion are poison candy. They don't want an omega, but they need one, even if there'll never be a real spot for me in their pack.
Who needs a pack? I’ll keep myself safe, same as always.
I'll never awaken, and I'll never ever give the Wyverns my heart...
Because all they'll do is rip me apart.
Five possessive gods and the end of mankind. That's my fate.
I always thought the end of the world was a myth. But then, I also thought Norse gods were make believe too. They’re not. Five of them are coming for me. They claim I will only survive if I surrender to them, body and soul. But they don’t realize it’s about so much more than carnal servitude. I am so much more than they could ever suspect. So much more than even I knew. I am the only one who can stop Ragnarök from covering the world in ice and darkness. The only one who can save gods and men alike from annihilation. And in the shadows lurks betrayal so deep it will change the fate of the world...
For fans of Marata Eros’ 'The Druid' series and Patricia Brigg’s 'Alpha and Omega' series comes a steamy take on Norse mythology. Omegaverse filled to the brim with wicked alphas, magic and fated mates.
