The vampires felt weak, specially considering a human hunter managed to be an equal in a fight with a vampire, even winning the fight. I got a complete Twilight pregnancy vibe. And why wasn't Henry more... shocked over the pregnancy? This book was weird, and the timeline was too short and I felt no connection to any of the characters, and then Henry becomes the true leader of the Carraway vampire clan? What?! Nothing made sense to me. I think that the story didn't work because of 1) Insta-love. 2) I felt like we were from the outside looking in. 3) No development. 4) No alpha males. 5) The vampires were weak and not powerful monsters/bad boys at all. 6) There was nothing special about any of the characters. 7) No one felt sexy, hot or attractive to me. Not even the sex scene(s). Overall, the story, the character, the plot (where was the plot btw?)... nothing of it worked for me. It's hugely important to me to connect with at least one of the characters, but I felt nothing here. I mean, apparently the Carraways were the vampire mafia, yet none of the felt badass at all. The Characters: → Henry, (19, turns 20), a Catholic human: he believes that being a vampire would be a one-way ticket to Hell. → Lyle Carraway (?), a vampire and love interest to Henry. → Cian ‘Gray Suit’ (25?), and his dead wife Stephanie ‘Steph’ Thomas, who Nikolai ordered to be killed. They are hunters: they kill supernaturals. Mostly vampires. (view spoiler)[Cora and Cian used to be an item - they are like soulmates, only more extreme. (hide spoiler)] → Ash ‘Sapphire’, Steph's sister. (view spoiler)[Cian kills her toward the end of the book, saving Cora. (hide spoiler)] → Dustin and Mike, Henry's brothers. → Coraline ‘Cora’ Carraway, Lyle's sister, and the vampire Sapphire tortured and Henry tried to help only to be staked accidentally by Cian: Henry took the stake that was meant for Cora. → Vincent, a vampire guard for the Carraway family? → Nikolai Carraway, Lyle's father and the head of the family - like mafia. All vampires in the Carraway family line are capable of compulsion. → Fiona Mills, one of the oldest vampires in the family. → Beatrice, Lina and Adam, vampires. → Elizabeth Carraway, Lyle and Cora's mother who killed herself because she believed her family were monsters? Quick basic facts: Genre: - (Adult) Paranormal Romance (M/M). Series: - Series, Book One. Love triangle? - (view spoiler)[No. (hide spoiler)] Cheating? - (view spoiler)[No. (hide spoiler)] HEA? - (view spoiler)[Yes. (hide spoiler)] Favorite character? - None. Would I read more by this author/or of series? - I'll try. Would I recommend this book/series? - No. Will I read this again in the future? - No. Rating - 2 stars.

    Lord...I am having shit luck with books lately. I wanted to like this but it just didn't do it for me. For one thing, there is zero chemistry or relationship development between Henry and Lyle. I mean, shit, they don't even spend much time together to even develop a relationship. There's other stuff going on with the hunters, the kidnapping and family drama. Plus, with Lyle just skipping out for a couple of weeks, there really wasn't any page time for just the two of them to, I don't know, talk? Lord...I am having shit luck with books lately.

Plus, with Lyle just skipping out for a couple of weeks, there really wasn't any page time for just the two of them to, I don't know, talk? Henry spends a lot of time with Cora. He even spends time with Nikolai but very little with Lyle. Then it's "Oh! We're having a baby. Let's get married because we're in love." The romance was definitely missing. I'm all for insta-love. I adore it in mate stories. But usually there's some connection...a pull to each other and it's on page. Not "behind the scenes" so to speak which is how it felt here. One minute Henry is still clinging to his religion and determined not to turn. And the next he's claiming to be in love with Lyle. But why? I never got to see it. I adored Henry. I felt bad for him at times thinking he couldn't possibly be anything that Lyle was interested in. We don't get Lyle's POV and I really think this could have benefited from having it. Lyle was so one dimensional to me. He was a bit of an ass. But we never really find out what makes him tick. And the whole pregnancy thing reeked of Twilight fanfic just in the MM version. Plus we've got Romeo and Juliet going on with Cora and Cian. Just too much going on and not enough romance for me. Definitely a bust.

    I’m super happy that LC Davis is back with a new series - and this one focusing on vampires! I feel like we don’t see as much vampire mpreg so I was looking forward to this one. For the most part, I thought that this was a solid start to a new book and the first in a new series, I believe. Henry falls into the world of vampires when he saves the life of one, Coraline, at a party. He’s taken to her family home since he knows what they are and can now be used against them. There, he meets Lyle and I’m super happy that LC Davis is back with a new series - and this one focusing on vampires!

There, he meets Lyle and although he wants to resist and doesn’t want to become a vampire, his love for Lyle ultimately has him rethinking what he first thought about vampires. I enjoyed this story...some romance, some danger, some vampires being bad asses, hunters out to get the vampires, and of course let’s throw in some mpreg! I did feel like some things were a bit...choppy? The world building wasn’t totally there for me, or it seemed inconsistent? (If vampires become alpha, beta, omega when they are turned, that’s fine. But I need reasons why Henry was exception to that.) Also, Henry’s religion and reasons for not wanting to be a vampire seemed kinda like thrown in just to give some sort of conflict. I look forward to more vampires from LC Davis! They’re still my favorite supernatural creature and I’d love more in the world of mpreg! I received an arc in exchange for an honest review.

The side characters seemed to be filler which eh, but they helped move the plot along. Overall i enjoyed this and would recommend to thise who aren't expecting anything new in vampire romanve, and aren't afraid of mpreg. The narration...wow. i very much enjoyed this narrator and will listen to him again. JJ got the emotions of the characters and when action was happening his voice showed the urgency or tension or passion. I definitely recommend this narrator. Story 3 stars Narration 4

    3.25 stars For me this wasn't one of L.C. Davis best book. I'm glad she's doing something different on the paranormal front but for me it was lacking. Maybe the second book will be and improvement. 3.25 stars For me this wasn't one of L.C. Davis best book. I'm glad she's doing something different on the paranormal front but for me it was lacking.

    2.5/5 stars, I'd say. And it feels kinda awkward to give this book such a "meh" rating, when initially I thought I was gonna love it. The thing is, The Vampire's Omega was supposed to be a romance book, specifically one that navigated the development of a romantic relationship between human Henry and vampire Lyle. Sadly, while there were some promising signs in the first quarter of the story or so, it seems that the author forgot this was supposed to be a romance book quite early in the story.

Sadly, while there were some promising signs in the first quarter of the story or so, it seems that the author forgot this was supposed to be a romance book quite early in the story. The subtle flame of romance that seems to be there one moment just snuffs itself out and disappears forever. Henry and Lyle are never given a chance to even really talk and develop a real relationship and, as a reader, it felt weird as all hell. Seriously, Henry spends more time with the secondary characters than with Lyle, and that's just confusing and, quite honestly, boring. I feel like there was some sort of off-page timelapse and one second I was seeing the two MCs fumble in awkward conversation, as all new acquaintances do, and then the next there were hunters, kidnappings, and declarations of love. DECLARATIONS OF LOVE. Without the MCs having even properly talked to each other before that. They just meet, try to get to know each other but aren't granted enough page time to do that, then they fuck - once -, then they get separated for a while, and the next time they meet, they're declaring their undying love and getting fucking married. Like, what? L.C. Davis tries to salvage everything by displaying a little bit of world-building, but they choose not to really commit to the world-building, so it just doesn't work. So, if we don't have romance in what was supposed to be a romance book, and we also don't get enough tension/suspense and world-building to justify carrying out the story for over one-hundred pages, what do we have in our hands? A weird, poorly executed fucking book, that's what. Disappointment and confusion is all I'm feeling right now. I'm kinda pissed that a story that started so well just flunked this spectacularly. I don't recommend this book unless you're feeling masochistic enough to consider spending a few hours getting frustrated and bored.

    Well, that was an interesting take on the ABO genre. I've only read one other with the Vampire distinction, and like that one was the details are fuzzy on the whys and hows. At least here we get a reasonable excuse: All their information was gathered from a sample set too small to account for possible variation. Props for Science! LOVED that Henry wasn't what most would call ideal, and that Lyle was attracted to someone society would deem as less than perfect.

LOVED that Henry wasn't what most would call ideal, and that Lyle was attracted to someone society would deem as less than perfect. Also appreciated that there wasn't a lot of story spent with Henry angsting too much about it either. Henry had a lot of heart, and was quite funny in unexpected ways. And I adored how the author made Lyle so vulnerable and so human when he opened up to Henry about his mother. One thing that I thought would get a bit annoying - Henry's Catholicism repeatedly used to repudiate all things Vampire - actually wasn't all that insufferable. There were a few instances of decision making that seemed pigeon-holed into fitting religious beliefs, but could be handwaved away if were framed in a more spiritual mindset rather than adhering to dogma. I think what kept this from rating slightly higher (for me) were a handful of inconsistencies that threw me out of the story...and that, for once, I think I was more interested in the het side characters & their tragic love.

    3.5 stars I adore LC Davis and am a little gutted that this vampire story is a stand-alone and not any part of a series. It does have interesting elements I wish we could have explored. I do love Henry though. He is just so adorable. Hearts all around! The flow of the story was a bit choppy. I mean, whole chunks were missing and for all the good bones is has, it could have made an awesome lengthy novel if it were fleshed out a little further.

    Not bad Mate stories are one of my favorites. Werewolves, vampires, shifters, and such. This was a great love story. I enjoyed the characters and their personalities. I had a difficult time getting past some inconsistencies with the story line, some editing mistakes, and some errors in the Audible reading. That is the main reason why I gave it only three stars. Overall, as my title says, not bad!

I love paranormal characters and I have come to appreciate a good mpreg book. I also haven't read anything by this author or listened to this narrator. A small part of me was wary. But I also love checking out new authors so I was happy to get a copy of this audio and review it. The narration in this audiobook was good. The narrators voice was pleasant and there were little variations between the characters voices. I only wish that there was a little bit more emoting. There was one error in the book where a character is called the wrong name, and it did take me out of the story. All in all, I did like the narration and would listen to the narrator again. What's great about paranormal stories is that the world is the author's to create. I did like the setting created in this book. Unbeknownst to human beings, there are also paranormal beings living in the same world. This book focuses on vampires, who are currently feuding with hunters. It is not that uncommon of a trope in a vampire novel, but this author has made it different by adding that when a vampire is made, there are possibilities for the vamp to become an alpha or an omega, and be able to carry babies. Also, there is a mythology in this book about the effect of drinking a vampire's blood and the choices to be made after. I did find it interesting for sure. Henry is a pretty typical character in a mm romance novel. He is a young gay man who has been ostracized by his family for being gay. He is trying to figure out what to do with his life and ends up working as waitstaff for a party but he doesn't know they are all vampires. Henry is pretty pure of heart and hasn't explored his sexuality because of his Catholic Faith. It makes him an interesting character that he keeps his innocence after being thrown out instead of letting anger or depression harden him. Even so, he can't resist the temptation that Lyle presents to him. When Henry is fatally wounded saving a high ranking female vampire from hunters, her brother saves Henry's life by giving him blood. Henry has to choose to become a vampire or die so no one can get their hands on his blood. I think that is what makes him decide to become involved with Lyle. At this point he can't die without experiencing passion and if he becomes a vampire, he'll be sucking human blood. Either way, there's nothing to lose. There are parts of me that feel like I really didn't know Lyle by the end of this book. There is some back story of his life discussed. His mother ended her life in a choice like the one Henry has to make. Lyle feels that she wanted to die rather than see her children become monsters (vampires). Knowing he believes that makes me feel for him so much, like he must have felt guilt and maybe repulsion at himself for being who he was born to be. That may be a parallel with how gay people feel when their parents aren't supportive of them, too. But still as much as I felt for him or that it might explain why he is kind of closed off, I feel like this is the only thing I know about him and I wish his character had been developed a little bit more. So it's good that in this universe males can become omegas and carry children because Henry definitely seems to want them. It was just one of the many things that plagued him about being gay. There is a moment that felt very much like a moment in Breaking Dawn (Twilight). And that's not to say that I dislike the Twilight series, because at the time they came out, I loved them hard. It was just kind of an eye roll at the similarity. I don't want it to seem like I didn't like this book, because it was good. There is some tension and the violence amps up between the hunters and the vampires. It helps Henry figure out what he wants to do regarding his life or death choices. It also brings a match for Lyle's sister and alliances that I think will help in the ongoing battles. I think the fight between the different types of beings will continue into the future books in the series. I haven't checked them out yet, but I definitely want to. 8/10 Pots of Gold (80% Recommended) – Compares to 4/5 Stars

Lyle is a vampire in the Carraway family. They run the vampire race and keep everyone in line, so there's no mass murder or crimes to bring their race into detection. He's not that emotional and kind of closed off due to losing his mother. Henry pulls a crazy, courageous stunt that ends up saving Lyle's sister Cora. Lyle has come to save Cora and barely makes it in time to save both Cora and Henry. Henry is given the option to turn to a vampire or die to keep their secrets. Henry being the good Catholic he is says no. Lyle decides to give Henry a month to get to know them and maybe change his mind. In this month Henry and Lyle get closer and start a sexual relationship. Later when Lyle is off on a business trip Cora decides to take Henry out for some fun, which leads to all kinds of secrets coming out and a lot of trouble. This is a pretty good vampire story that I really wished was longer. I wanted Henry and Lyle to have more alone time and get closer emotionally. I didn't feel like they had a true connection until the book was almost over and it was a little rushed. I also didn't like the procedure used for ending Henry's human life and starting his vampire life, it felt too violent for me. Overall I think this is a good short story and would recommend it to others. ARC received for an honest review.

    This is my first vampire mpreg and first LC Davis book. I am a huge fan of mpreg and really enjoyed this take on it. There are a few world building loose ends - like why can’t Lyle mind control Henry? I was shocked when Henry’s religion comes up. That was a nice touch. But what happened to the rosary? It was important enough to have in his pocket so why doesn’t it appear later? So some of the questions and conflict weren’t carried through consistently.

So while there were those questions I had above, I totally enjoyed this saga. Everything takes place in a short period of time, like less than a year, and boy do you get a story. Vampire hunters and abduction and rescues and babies and family and so much more. L.C. did a fabulous job balancing all of that while giving us a sweet story. The audiobook narration was pretty good. J.J. Jenness captures Henry’s ingenue qualities without being smarmy. This is definitely a performance and not just a reading so it really highlights that Henry and Coraline aren’t whiny babies because it could so easily have gone there. Overall it’s a low angst, generally fluffy, feel-good romance with vampire hunters and a husky virgin in the middle of it.

    This was very different from what I have come to expect from ABO stories. In fact, we don't even learn about the ABO dynamics until pretty far into the book. However, it was great seeing a normal, not perfect, human as a MC. I understand that most stories have an MC that has some sort of traumatic past; but, Henry faces real life insecurities. Then, out of the goodness of his broke, student loan, rent owing heart, he saves the life of a woman...who turns out to be a vampire.

The story's world building gives insight into the lives and politics of one of the most powerful vampire families in the world. It also helps the reader understand why the opposition came be, and how they are run. This is a vampire/human/omega mpreg story that teaches the MCs and secondary characters that overcoming old prejudices is not a sign of weakness. That times change, and miracles can happen. I really enjoyed this book, and I think you will, too. Just go in with an open mind. This is not your typical omegaverse book, but it is a good one. Happy reading! * I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. *

A hundred years old vampire and a spoiled brat yet? - Yes, you are a poison weapon against all my family but it's OK, I am the most powerfull family and keep the really bad vampire at bay against the rest of world but I will you to have free will to decide how you wanna die for a while and, in between, how about go out and dance, so you could be bad protected and be kidnaped by my enemies? But the best part? How Henry shame of his not so hot softness is meet with "the best thing from a vampire viewpoint".

    The title sounds so benign, but little does the reader know exactly what he or she is getting into. I've read hundreds of stories featuring Omegas as well as stories about Vampires still I wasn't prepared for the opening scene of this book. But that wasn't the end of the action, adventure, and violence. Insight into the lives of Vampires, especially a very powerful and prominent family & those they come in contact with. How different each family is. How much the family really cares for one anoth The title sounds so benign, but little does the reader know exactly what he or she is getting into.

But that wasn't the end of the action, adventure, and violence. Insight into the lives of Vampires, especially a very powerful and prominent family & those they come in contact with. How different each family is. How much the family really cares for one another. How vicious Vampire Hunters are. Their viciousness equals that of the Vampires. The only person who had a foot in both worlds was baffling to each world. Of course everyone wants immortality, everyone wants the powers of a Vampire, everyone but a caring frightened Human. Is it better to let go of life and accept the peace of death or allow one's self to be lulled under the trance of a Vampire which leads to its own form of death & everlasting life. There are so many surprises in this really enjoyable book. Get ready, get set....

    ~AUDIO REVIEW~ Vampires vs Hunters I did enjoy Lyle and Henry, but I found myself more intrigued with Cora and her little twist in the story. Henry was sweet and at times very levelheaded. I didn’t feel the connection between him and Lyle for the first good half of the story. I think it would have been better if we got Lyle’s POV at times, but this is told from Henry’s POV.

I think it would have been better if we got Lyle’s POV at times, but this is told from Henry’s POV. I enjoyed the conflict between the vampires and hunters. Anytime the hunters were involved the story was entertaining and engaging. I would have love to know more about the hunters. There were a couple little surprises/twists towards the end that I also enjoyed. JJ Jenness did an ok job. For some reason, maybe it was the way the story was written, but he paused and stopped a whole lot which made it hard for the story to flow at times. Henry's voice was the only one that was the same throughout. I did like that he tried to change the tone for each character. Overall, I did like JJ Jenness voice and would listen to him again. This was my first book by JJ Jenness.

Henry was delightfully funny by being so innocent and pure, and what made this story so sweet was how he brought a centuries old Lyle to his knees. I do think the concept of fated mates could have been explained better, and that the inclusion of other characters' perspectives would have made it possible for those details to have been introduced. It was a bit abrupt how Lyle all of a sudden had feelings and showed desire for Henry, or how confusing it was that Coraline and Cian were mates all of a sudden. Still, I liked this book a lot. Five stars.

    Really loved this trope soup This is not really your typical vampire OR mpreg or whatever else you want to classify it as. It takes some overdone tropes and twists them just enough that they are just a bit different. Seriously loved it. Also love when an MC in a romance book has an unsexy name like HENRY or Bob or larry. Especially when they don't fit into the typical, conventionally attractive box. I love chubby MCs. This is a fated mate/ alpha-omega/ mpreg/ vampire trope soup that was done real Really loved this trope soup This is not really your typical vampire OR mpreg or whatever else you want to classify it as.

I loved that even though henry felt the connection to lyle he didn't just jump on the band wagon. His faith and fears for his soul were understandable and are not often addressed in vamp books and especially not in fated mates books. It was brilliantly done. Awesome. Brilliant. Loved it. Kinda want to re-read immediately and I'm not ashamed to admit that I might just do it.

    Extraordinary vampire/human story! I loved this story and all the characters within. Henry is special to me because how many of us feel like a step out of our world, feeling clumsy, inept in most situations and yet have true beliefs. Henry is trying hard to go to college and having been kicked out of his family works jobs to survive. His courage and beliefs keep him going when he discovers that vampires are real. How many of us would choose death over becoming a vampire? Lyle is everything that H Extraordinary vampire/human story! I loved this story and all the characters within.

How many of us would choose death over becoming a vampire? Lyle is everything that Henry fantasied over minus the vampire part and tempts Henry so much. Henry only has a month to decide death or becoming a vampire. I read this from KU but after reading the story had to buy it for my library. Great story L.C. Davis!
