Joint Review: OMEGA by Jasinda Wilder

My blogmate Candy has been reading the Alpha Series by Jasinda Wilder and after reading her reviews of it, I had to catch up, which is why you see two reviews of Alpha and Beta on this blog. I decided to jump in on her review of Omega, though, so we could bring you this joint review!

Review by Candy
23677656Omega picks up right after the ending of Beta. Roth, Kyrie, and Layla are hiding from Vitaly Karahalios, who is now their sworn enemy. It’s not a matter of if but when Vitaly will strike to get revenge for his daughter’s death. Layla is chaffing at all the restrictions placed on her and she simply wants to go home. She’s even more bothered by Harris, who doesn’t seem to feel the attraction she does. Then in the middle of the night, Vitaly strikes and manages to kidnap Layla despite all of the security measures Harris put in place. Now Harris is desperately searching for Layla before Vitaly murders her. Will Harris find her in time? Will he finally admit his attraction to Layla?

Just wow. What another great book in this series. I was hooked from the first word and kept swiping the screen to see what would happen next.

Wilder does an amazing job with the suspense and action in this book. The scenes played out like a summer block buster movie in my head. What Layla did to survive Vitaly will give readers the shudders.

I can’t review this book without mentioning the sex. There is a lot of it. I felt like I needed to smoke a carton of cigarettes after I finished this book and I have never smoked in my life! Omega is the third book in the Alpha series (it is not a standalone read!!!). Wilder combines intense action scenes with smoking hot love scenes to create an epic story. If you love erotic romance, this series is definitely a must read.

Review by Amy

Omega by Jasinda Wilder was not what I expected but equally exciting and entertaining as I had hoped. In fact I was laughing an awful lot throughout the book which I was not expecting. Harris and Layla were a treat to read about. While this book did treat us to some of Roth and Kyrie, it was mainly about Harris and Layla. They are such a fun couple. They antagonize one another (Layla to Harris more) but they both have the best responses. The dialogue alone between the two of them witty and funny and I was always craving more of it.

As you can see from the summary these four are being sought after by an evil international crime lord or whatever you want to call him. They are trying to stay under his radar for awhile until they can plan their attack, but they are still found. A kidnapping happens. From there, we are on the ride trying to watch an escape, a rescue and a lot more. It is different than Beta in the overall feel of the book I think. While we still have a lot of threat, it is a different threat.

This series has a lot of sex in it. I mean a lot. Wilder must be some sex genius because the scenes are always different and never boring. I can’t image writing one briefly detailed sex scene let alone as many that are in this series, but the way she writes them is phenomenal. You don’t feel as though you are reading the same one over and over with different couples. Harris and Layla are a lot different than Roth and Kyrie so their intimate scenes are different. The two of them are completely wild, crazy, intense and passionate all at the same time.

The love story between Harris and Layla came out of left field for her so it was fun watching Layla go through those deep emotions for the first time in her life. And it was nice to see a different side of Harris.

The suspense and action scenes in Omega are pretty good. While they were not the main aspect of the story, as a lover of romantic suspense, I enjoyed them. The ending of the suspense plot of the book was a little anti-climatic to me, but again, it really isn’t about that so much as it is about the -relationships among Roth, Kyrie, Harris and Layla so the ending was perfect. It also set up the spin-off series that centers around Harris’ new company Alpha One Security. If you are looking for an extremely hot, sexy, intense erotic romance series, definitely give Alpha, Beta and Omega a read.
