Publisher's Summary

Phoenix Harcourt is a single father who was kicked out of his home when his parents found out that he was an omega. After losing his alpha mate, Phoenix turned his focus to his daughter and the successful company that was left in his care. With a threat to his life, Phoenix hires a bodyguard who wants to protect more than his body. He also wants Phoenix's heart.

Hired to protect an omega, Lucius Payne had one goal: Do his job and nothing else. He was never one to mix business with pleasure. Moreover, finding an omega mate was not in his plans, especially when it is the man he is supposed to protect and when his job becomes more complicated than he was expecting. Can Lucius convince Phoenix to trust him with his heart as well as his body?

Disclaimer: Contains Mpreg but not the focus of the story. Alpha/Omega (non-shifter). This book contains explicit language and is intended for adult listeners over the age of 18.

Great contemporary mpreg, loved John Solo

I was very pleasantly surprised with this story! I loved the characters, I loved the story, the romance, and the pace of things.

Phoenix is an omega who had a horrible falling out with his family at a young age. Since then, he has built a name for himself with his company, he is raising his daughter as a single parent from his first mating, and is basically living life for his daughter, Jasmine, at the start of this story. He starts receiving threatening letters, and when they start to include Jasmine, he knows that he has to do something.

Lucius is an alpha, ex-military, and runs his own private security company. He gets a call asking to please help Phoenix out, and when they first meet - BOOM - they realize they are mates. I love that they took their time with the mating, they didn't just jump into bed a scene later. Lucius took his time to woo Phoenix, to get to know each other, and for Jasmine to be comfortable.

I loved these two - Phoenix is a strong, independent omega, which I loved. And Lucius is patient, caring, gives forehead kisses, and is just perfect for Phoenix, who deserves a mating with love this time around. When the two finally do cement their bond, it's sexy, sweet, and perfect.

I don't want to give away any spoilers as far as the whole stalking storyline goes, but I was definitely surprised. It seemed a little bit...over the top? But it both was who I thought it was - and not. There was a bit of telling, rather than showing, at the beginning of the story as far as giving a ton of exposition and backstory. Other than that, I really enjoyed this story of Lucius and Phoenix.

Also, great narrating from John Solo! His voices were perfect for these two and it was a fun listen!

I received an audio copy in exchange for an honest review.

Protecting His Omega

This book was great and A Lot better than I was anticipating. I was thoroughly entertained during the entire book and narration of the story. There was a good amount of action and intrigue and twists and turns along with some romance and hot sexy times between the two main characters Omega Phoenix and Alpha Lucius. The writing along with the storyline flowed really well together at a good pace. I’m really glad that the author Giovanna Reaves didn’t just throw these two men Alpha/Omega into bed together right away and that we got an actual plot, dialogue and communication between the two of them first. It made me like the story a lot more, insta-love would not have worked with this one for me so I’m happy the author didn’t go that route. Oh man, and I NEVER saw that ending coming. I was trying to guess the entire book on who the “bad guy” actually was and my answer changed a bunch of times. When you can’t obviously figure out who it is from the start and your answer keeps changing because there are so many twists, that’s when you know you have a good book because it keeps you completely immersed in the story. You HAVE to know what happens next and how it all ends. It’s been a while since I’ve actually been surprised by the ending of a book, and this one definitely surprised me.

~The Parents – They were the obvious choice for me to dislike and point my finger at when things started going wrong, because of what they did in the past, and how horrible they acted when they realized Phoenix was a gay omega, people who act like that should not parents.
~The Brother – He was weird and kept disappearing and showing back up at different times, changing his story all around. And I thought it was odd that he randomly showed back up in Phoenix’s life after so much time and not really explaining his side of the reasoning to what their parents did and why he didn’t stick up for Phoenix.
~The Vice Pres. of the company – Well now, he is another choice high on the list of suspects for me, mainly because he’s a jerk who obviously wants Phoenix away from the company even though Phoenix has totally proven himself to be competent at what he does.
~The I.T./Security Guy – He had access to the computers/cameras and email system so it would have been pretty easy and convenient for him to do some stalking and make some bad decisions.
~The Assistant – Again, she also had access to computers and email, so it would have been easy for her with the personal access she had directly to Phoenix, but I wasn’t quite sure what her motive behind it would be.
~The Cops – Cops are always a suspect, and “the man” can always be out to get you… lol. But there was some concerns I had with what happened to Phoenix’s deceased mate and how he died which led me to believe it could have been an inside type job with the police involved.
~The Random – When you’re rich and/or famous it could always be some random crazy that comes out of the woodwork to cause harm, so this option is not off the table as far as suspects go.

You will NEVER guess the ending, who did it, and the reasoning behind why…. So, in my opinion this book was really great, it has everything you look for in a romance book with a mystery twist and it hits all the marks.

Audio – John Solo was a great pick as a narrator for this book. He always does a great job with the Alpha/Omega type books, and this one was no different. I really appreciate his dedication to making sure the audiobooks he makes have a good amount of emotion and effort put into them. He really pulls us into this story with his voices for all of these characters. Great job and I really liked the narration for this book, I’m sure I will be listening to this one again and would highly recommend this book to others.

Protecting His Omega

Phoenix never thought he would find someone to love. He has led a hard life but was lucky enough to have met a wonderful man who became a father figure to him and eventually left him his company. When Phoenix begins to have problems at his company he dismisses it until they target his daughter. He hires Lucius for protection but it seems that the two are much more. One look and sniff of each other confirms their mate status but can the two find love in the middle of the chaos?

This is a sweet story full of emotions. The author does a wonderful job of giving the characters life. Lucius and Phoenix are both strong men who must figure out just what they want and how much they are willing to fight for it. I enjoyed seeing the interactions with all the characters. Each one shows so much emotions and camaraderie. The story moves at a good pace and has a few twists and turns that surprised me. It was nice to see Lucius and Phoenix’s relationship take shape as they try to figure out just who is out to destroy Phoenix. Love and trust are hard earned in this story yet they are stronger for it. Narrator John Solo gives a good performance and had me quickly falling into the story as I listened.

Sweet story with a twist

I haven't read or listened to books by this author before but will be looking up more to read. I really enjoy listening to John Solo and that's what first caught my eye about this audiobook.

I thought this was a good story about a non-typical omega raising his daughter in a high-profile environment. When his daughter is threatened, I was able to figure out pretty quickly who was doing it but how it came about was a twist I wasn't expecting, nor was it something found in other books.

I look forward to other books by Giovanna and hope they are as easy to listen to as this one.

Great Romance

I love this story! Phoenix and Lucius are perfection together. Although they realize they are mates as soon as Lucius shows up to be Phoenix's bodyguard, I love how they take their time to get to know each other and let their relationship develop. There's lots of action and twists to the story to keep you hooked right up until the end when you finally see who the real bad guy is. It truly was a total surprise and big twist at the end! The narrator was spectacular with all of the characters and did a great job bringing the story to life.

This is really good!

This is my first non-shifter, mpreg stories and a good one to get started with!
Phoenix was kicked out of his home at 16 because he was an omega and gay. After being taken in by Maxwell, a rich businessman (father/son relationship), Phoenix thrives and eventually takes over Maxwell’s business when he dies. Phoenix was mated once and has a little girl, Jasmine from the relationship.
Not everyone at Phoenix’s company is happy that he is the new owner, so when he starts receiving threatening letters Phoenix is forced to contact a private security company which is how he meets Lucius, his mate.
What I liked about the story is that Phoenix is not a typical omega – yes, he knows he will submit to his alpha’s will – but he has a backbone and wouldn’t give in to the natural instinct to rollover for his alpha mate. Lucius is a patient alpha, who wants to care for his omega. There is a lot of sexual tension between the 2 men before they finally get together – mid book- but it’s worth the wait! Both men were a delight to read and Jasmine was realistically cute.
There is a surprise twist towards the end that also adds to the story (quite unique).

John Solo does a really good job with the characters :) It was a pleasure to listen to him bring the story to life. He made Lucius sound like a strong, alpha male and Phoenix sound like a strong (with a hint of vulnerability), doting father.
I recommend this audio unreservedly, especially to those on the fence about mpreg!
I received a copy from the author, but the review is my own opinion.
