Book Review: 'To Love and Protect His Omega (Justice Brothers Omegaverse Book 1)' by Quinn Michaels

Pennsylvania author Quinn Michaels pens sweet, sexy Mpreg romances: he also has published a fine book on Investing in the Computer Age! As Quinn phrases it, ‘I love fantasy, werewolves and M/M mpreg romance! My goal is to write action-packed adventures of romance, self-discovery and second chances, all served up with a hefty helping of sweet, sexy Omegas and hot, determined Alphas who will do anything to cherish, love, and protect them.’

Quinn has opened a new series of books that focus on Mpreg romances. His first book – OMEGA SHELTER - set the mood and he extended the Pine Creek Lake series with OMEGA SACRIFICE and OMEGA SHADOW. Now he opens a new series The Justice Brothers Omegaverse with Book 1 – TO LOVE AND PROTECT HIS OMEGA.

The solid quality of Quinn’s writing is evident as we meet Gunnar and his daughter – ‘"Dad! Dad! Wake up!" Gunnar sat bolt upright in the bed, his mind still fuzzed with sleep even as he responded to the panic in his eight-year-old daughter's voice. "Olivia, what's wrong?" Gunnar didn't smell smoke, so the house wasn't on fire. He rubbed his eyes. Olivia stood at the edge of his bed. Her brown curls were frizzed, sticking out in every direction. Her nose and eyes were red, and in her arms, she cradled their new kitten, Puff. "Puff's sick," Olivia said with a sob. Puff was, according to the shelter, a seven-week-old buff tabby kitten. “Buff” meant he was light orange-beige with slightly darker stripes. They had adopted him four days ago for Olivia's birthday. The little guy had been sneezing a little then, but he was active, chasing a feather on a string through the bars of his cage when he wasn't running after his own tail. Now, as Olivia laid him gently on the comforter, he could hardly lift his head. Gunnar felt ill. "I'm so sorry," Olivia sobbed. "We were playing with the string before I went to bed. He's going to die, isn't he?" Since Adam's death a year ago, Olivia had been terrified of someone else she loved dying. So was Gunnar, but as the adult, and now her only living parent, he couldn't show it. He was an alpha, and he had to be strong enough to care for his family even if he had been too weak and too blind to save his husband's life. Puff let out a weak meow and sneezed. His eyes were goopy, and his little nose was crusted with snot. "Puff's going to be okay," Gunnar said, praying it wasn't a lie. "Let him stay on the bed and go get the carrier. We're taking him to a vet."

The plot of this sensitive story follows – ‘Police Detective and single dad, Gunnar Justice swore an oath to serve and protect, but he couldn't save the omega closest to him. Now he's raising his 8-year-old daughter alone. But when his daughter adopts a sick kitten, will a hot veterinarian with his own secrets offer a second chance at love?
Pursued by a relentless stalker, omega veterinarian, Liam Chandler, packs up his entire life and moves across the country to start over. He has lost faith in romance and instead devotes his time to saving his animal patients. But when a handsome alpha detective and his daughter come into Liam's exam room with a kitten who needs a miracle, will Liam give romance a second chance? Can these two men overcome their pasts to make a family together? Even as a final threat from Liam's past threatens not only their relationship but their lives.’

Short but told with fervor and erotic steam, Quinn seems be gathering a following for these books. Grady Harp, June 18
