Snowed In by Aiden Bates

AUTHOR’S BLURB: Austin Baines is a workaholic omega living in the upscale town of Skaneateles, New York. He’s unmated, but he doesn’t mind. He’s happy with his life. He runs a phenomenally successful wine business, has the respect of his peers, and has complete freedom.

Cody Howell left the rat race of Manhattan behind three years ago to start Blue Bells Weddings in Syracuse. The alpha figured that wedding planning wouldn’t be much different from running a consulting project, and he was right. He’s been very successful, and he’s content with his life.

When Cody meets Austin on a last-minute business deal, sparks fly immediately. Both men try to keep things professional, but the sudden appearance of Austin’s twin brother from Texas raises the stakes.

Adrian Baines might look like Austin, but the pair couldn’t be more different. For starters, Adrian is an alpha, and he’s an archconservative alpha determined to bring his wayward omega brother back into the fold. Adrian promised his best friend, Kirby, years ago that Austin would be his omega. Now they’re both here to bring Austin to heel.

Can Austin resist the demands of his estranged family, or will his fierce need for independence keep him alone forever? Or can Cody help him find a third option, one that will lead them both toward happiness?

This is an alpha/ omega non-shifter male pregnancy gay romance book. This book contains sexually explicit content not suited for those under the age of 18. The book is approximately 60,000 words, has a happy ending and does not end in a cliffhanger.

MY REVIEW: This was a well-paced and interesting story. There was a little difficulty in believing Cody’s behavior at one point, even though of course it was only there for dramatic effect and to add tension and suspense. But the entire thing was enjoyable. It was gratifying to get all the loose ends tied up at the end, too. I really liked the fact that the alpha and omega from snowed in were different than usual. Both the physical and personality differences. It was refreshing to have a very independent omega and a shorter and less overall aggressive or dominant alpha. It made them seem more like they could really exist, which makes getting lost to the story easier.
I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.
