#BookReview Alpha Heat by Leta Blake #PNR #MMRomance #Audiobook #Giveaway


The audio narration was fantastic. The narrator's distinct interpretation of the different characters made them easy to picture and identify.

This story is set in an alternate shifter universe where there are no women, men get pregnant and the wolf shifters don't shift.

Xan is an alpha who doesn't feel like an alpha. He craves other alphas and dreams of being an omega in a world where such cravings are forbidden and outlawed.

Urho is an older alpha whose mate and child died and has spent several years alone. He is a man who lives by the rules of the land and believes in their traditions.

When Urho discovers Xan's dark desires he steps in to help and their dalliance soon turns into something more. But their road to happy ending is paved with an abusive ex, a deadly flu outbreak, a contracted omega in heat and of course the threat of being publicly shamed by being disinherited.

This story has a lot going on in it. Hence the length. But it is well paced to keep the reader engaged. 

I loved Xan and Urho together. One of my favourite scenes in a book this year has to be the one in Urho's library. Go read it and tell me if that doesn't take your breath away.

I'll admit I wasn't a big fan of Caleb or the ending with all three of them. I felt as if he was a third wheel throughout and never really believed he got a happy ending, not the way Xan and Urho got one. Shame, because otherwise, this was a solid story and almost a perfect read.

A desperate young alpha. An older alpha with a hero complex. A forbidden love that can’t be denied.

Young Xan Heelies knows he can never have what he truly wants: a passionate romance and happy ever after with another alpha. It’s not only forbidden by the prevailing faith of the land, but such acts are illegal.

Urho Chase is a middle-aged alpha with a heartbreaking past. Careful, controlled, and steadfast, his friends dub him old-fashioned and staid. When Urho discovers a dangerous side to Xan’s life that he never imagined, his world is rocked, and he’s consumed by desire. The carefully sewn seams that held him together after the loss of his omega and son come apart - and so does he.

But to love each other and make a life together, Xan and Urho risk utter ruin. With the acceptance and support of Caleb, Xan’s asexual and aromantic omega and dear friend, they must find the strength to embrace danger and build the family they deserve.

This gay-romance novel by Leta Blake is the second in the Slow Heat universe. It has a strong, happy ending and a well-crafted non-shifter omegaverse. It features alphas, betas, omegas, male pregnancy, heat, and knotting. No cheating. Content warning for brief sexual violence.
