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.

Protecting His Omega by Giovanna Reaves
Narrated by John Solo
Five Stars
This is the first book I have listen to by Giovanna Reaves, and I’m looking forward to listening to many more. Shifter books are not my normal genre, but I loved the great plot lines and character descriptions. I will definitely be listening to more of this series. This is also the first time I have listened to a book narrated by John Solo. He has a very sexy voice that is easy to listen to. This was a great five star book for me!

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.

MMy Thoughts and Review:

Protecting His Omega was a good read, with a decent pace, and cast. I enjoyed the way the author presented Alpha/ Beta/ Omega dynamics and their relationship values in society. I also liked that the main MC in this story was a very successful Omega who didn't need to rely on an Alpha or Beta. At least he didn't until the life of his young daughter was threatened.

The book has mystery and a bit of danger, a sinfully sMMexy Alpha who helps keep the omega and his daughter safe. A sweet little girl the Alpha nicknames, "Princess Jasmine," and a twist that you THINK you see coming, but you really don't! I liked that! 😍

While this isn't necessarily a holiday themed book, it does take place before, during, and after Christmas. It wasn't smothered in Holiday Flare, so if you are a Grinch, like me, you will be thankful of that. 😂

I’m a big fan of mpreg (hey let the men have babies for a change). I really enjoyed this story. This was my first book from Giovanna Reaves and I will definitely pick up more from this author. John solo is one of my favorite authors and does not disappoint with this one

Great story, great audiobook

I'm a audiobook newbie and I admit I wasn't too sure I was going to like them. It took a bit to get used to having the story read to me instead of reading it myself. Once I got used to it, I started to enjoy it. I read this story before and loved it, the audiobook version made me experience the story in a different way. I listened on my way to work and wow, I'm surprised by how much I enjoyed starting my day with this audiobook. John Solo does a fabulous job with the various voices and they matched how I thought the characters should sound. The wrong voice actor could have ruined the story. I am hoping this universe continues, maybe with Hugo and one of Luc's brothers? I can hope! Giovanna and John sure got this newbie wanting more audiobooks!

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.

Sweet mates and finding family story

This was narrated by John Solo who is one of my favourite narrators, so I jumped at the chance of a review promo code for this book. I very much enjoyed this sweet tale of an Omega who runs a successful company after losing his Alpha who bequeathed the company to him, but when he is threatened to the point that a bodyguard becomes necessary for his own safety as well as that of his daughter, he finds a new Alpha where he combines work and love. I love whodunnits and this was a fun read with plenty of great characters as Lucien and Phoenix work together to figure out who is truly behind the threats. There's even a twin brother in there, and I didn't expect the twist that came. Highly recommended for all lovers of bodyguards and Alpha/Omega love stories with a splash of MPreg thrown in for good measure.

Protecting His Omega by Giovanna Reaves. This story develops nicely. A good combination of world building and character development. If you like M/Preg this is the story for you.
The Narrator John Solo did a fantastic job bringing these characters and 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.
