2019 Round Up-Top Omegaverse Books

We’re back to my year-end round up from last year. Today is going to be my best Omegaverse books. I’m not sure how long this list is going to be, because some of the books I would put on this list I listed elsewhere, so… We’ll just have to see, won’t we?

Tabitha Black-Primal Mate

OK, I’m not just putting Primal Mate on here because the main character is named after me, really I’m not. The reason I am putting it on here is because I really liked the way that Clara interacted with the world. She is an Omega and knows that she’s an Omega, but she tried really hard to act like an Alpha. She trained herself to do it. She learned how to walk, talk, dress, and behave like she was an Alpha, until she couldn’t. I really liked watching her character and how she reacted once she went into heat and things changed. And hey, the fact that Tabby likes me enough to put my name on one of her characters is just really fucking cool.

Anna Wineheart-Gareth’s Boy

Anna released a few books this year, and I tend to reread her books too. I like the characters in them. They give me all the feelz. I’ve already had one of her books on my Top 10 list, and here’s another with Gareth’s Boy. This book is the second one in a spinoff series from the Men of Meadowfall books. This one goes on this list because of how Gareth changes his mind about Flores and how he wants to protect him. When you read this one, watch out for the carrots, snakes, and honey. Oh my. Do be aware that you will have all the feelz.

Leann Ryans-Hired for Heat

Leann took the Omegaverse and flipped it upside down. In Hired for Heat, instead of the Omegas having to be segregated, it’s the Alphas. Once a man presents as Alpha he is put into a camp and either has to work or, if he’s lucky, become a stud who helps Omega women through their heats. It is a fascinating idea and a very new way of looking at the O-verse. Leann has another book in this world, and I’m living for the series.

L.V. Lane-Taking Control

L.V. Lane’s Taking Control is another great take on the O-verse. In her world, there are more than Alphas, Betas, and Omegas, and they all have their own jobs. There are also people who don’t present at all. The reason that there are any Alphas et al in this world is because there was a virus that was released, and now everyone is at war. I am a couple of books behind in this series. I have all the books, I just need to sit down and read them. I just find this to be a really unique take on the O-verse.

Sara Fields-The Omegaborn Trilogy

I can’t really separate out Sara’s Omegaverse books out. That’s because the Omegaborn Trilogy has to be taken together, I think, as one big unit. Even though each book follows a different grouping of one Omega and several Alphas, it has a much larger story arc, and you need to read all of the books together to get the full impact of what is going on. We don’t often see a lot of Betas in the O-verse books, and I really liked what Sara did with it.

OK, that’s all my books for today. I have one more round up list coming, so stay tuned!

L.V. Lane-Taking Control

I think that at this point I could comfortably be called an Omegaverse connoisseur. I’ve read a good chunk of what’s available on Amazon, in whatever gender configurations I can. I haven’t read a lot of fanfic yet, for reasons. It’s on my list of things to do, but if you saw my list, you might faint away dead. So, what does this have to do with anything? Well, today is a new MF Omegaverse, by a brand new author. L.V. Lane has decided to jump right in their very first published book, ever, Taking Control.

I’m going to tell you right now, I have much to say about this one, so let’s just jump right in.

Copper’s Virus has given a chunk of humanity the A/B/O dynamics, but in this universe, it’s more than just those three. There are other dynamics as well, like Mus, but we don’t see any of those, I really hope that we do in further books, I think it would be really interesting to explore the expanded dynamics. Anyway, there are some people who ended up with dynamics thanks to this created virus, and then there are the Uncorrupted. They pride themselves on being uninfected by the virus. And the two groups of humanity are at war with each other, and it’s not a pretty war. Of course, no war is, but I get the feeling that for the Uncorrupted, it’s almost more like a holy war than anything else.

In the middle of this war, we have Eloise, who is an Omega Singular, and Logan, who is going to be her Alpha controller. Singulars have additional powers on top of having their dynamics. In Eloise’s case, she can read the emotions of people if she touches them or drops her mental shields around them. If she has something of someone’s she can feel their emotions and find them. She’s been called in on a mission because an important diplomat and his family have gone missing on a war-torn planet and he has some very important and sensitive information. That means that they have to go rescue him. So, Eloise was called in, and since she needs to have a controller, enter Logan.

Logan is a war hero, and he’s been offered the chance to be a controller for a Singular. In order to do that, he had to fight a whole bunch of other Alphas. It’s basically a training exercise with benefits, or so his CO tells him. And since the person who he fought for is a female Omega, guess what those benefits are?

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I am really grooving on the whole dynamics from a virus thing instead of an inborn kind of thing. It’s one I haven’t seen before, but one I really like. I also really enjoyed the fact that the Omegas get deployed and go into war. Of course, that’s also kind of a double-edged sword. They have to have controllers who control them, and for control, read fuck and discipline, and they don’t get to choose those controllers. The Omegas don’t have a lot of rights in the world, and they are getting fewer and fewer.

I liked Eloise and how conflicted she was. Everything seemed to weigh very heavily on her, and she wasn’t sure what she was going to do from one moment to the next. I like Logan too. I think he’s a pretty good guy. We do get some peeks into his head, but mostly we only see Eloise’s head. Each chapter is headed by quotes from a doctor who is an expert in Copper’s so that was really fascinating to read.

Now, having said that, there were a couple of things that I would’ve liked to have more of. For example, I would really like to have more information about investing. We learn more about Singulars as the book goes on, but we never really find as much about investing. I would like to find out more about it. I’m pretty sure that I can get a basic idea, but I would’ve liked to have more.

I’m really looking forward to the next one and to seeing what LV Lane is going to do with the world. I don’t think I really have any spoilers today, but I have a picture for you.
