    I think this may have just bumped Wizard by the Sea out of my favorite book by this author spot! I LOVED this story so, so, so much! Of course, I am reminded of Leta Blake's Slow Heat when first starting to read this - teacher/student relationship, human ABO world, age gap of 20 years, you name it. But this stands as being unique on its own at the same time. I LOVED the scent markers and bonding elements (I wish more ABO 'verse stories had that incorporated actually) and I love how important that I think this may have just bumped Wizard by the Sea out of my favorite book by this author spot!

But this stands as being unique on its own at the same time. I LOVED the scent markers and bonding elements (I wish more ABO 'verse stories had that incorporated actually) and I love how important that is in this series. Dale is an omega teacher hoping to reach tenure at the college he works at. For the past couple months, one of his students, Greg, has been asking him for coffee - but surely he can't really be seriously interested in an old, infertile omega, right? Not when Greg is the star athlete, son of the dean of college, and has such a promising future ahead of him, right? I loved Greg's steadfastness in his wanting and then love for Dale. He's not afraid or ashamed of it, and he just knows that Dale is IT for him, despite the age difference and knowing his past. I LOVED that. And I loved how he just knew he would take care of Dale and the baby. UGH I loved him. Dale had been treated horribly by his ex-husband and his family, so he is understandably weary when he comes to Greg, and he has that whole, "I'm going to make this decision for your own good, you're better off without me" mentality that just made my heart break around the 77-85% part of the story, But it's so beautiful, and it's so wonderful at the end, and I just LOVED IT. CANNOT wait for the next book in the series! If you want some human, non-shifter ABO with KNOTTING and scent-marking and bonding, and mpreg, and wonderfulness, you must read this story! Very easy to stand alone since Felix and Kade just make a brief appearance. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Omega Teacher's Baby is the second book in the Men of Meadowfall series by Anna Wineheart. I first read about Professor Dale Kinney and Greg Hastings in a short story called Teacher in Heat during a professor/student short story promotion event through instafreebie. I fell in love with both characters and wanted to know what happened to them after their first taboo encounter. And it was like the author heard my cry for more because she took the story I loved and made it into a full-length novel Omega Teacher's Baby is the second book in the Men of Meadowfall series by Anna Wineheart.

And it was like the author heard my cry for more because she took the story I loved and made it into a full-length novel and answered all of my questions about what happened and if they got their happy ending. And all I have to say is the book was hot, hot, hot. It pushed all of my happy buttons with some of my favorite tropes. I have always loved the taboo teacher/student books and then to throw in an older/younger theme as well. And not the typical older/younger theme where the alpha is the older and the omega is the younger but the other way around which was a great treat and made it even more taboo and gave it a cougar vibe. I loved the book, and I can't wait to read more books by Anna Wineheart. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. I bought a copy because I loved it that much.

    I really enjoyed the first book in the series, so of course I had to download the second book in the series as soon as it was available. And...I didn't really like it. I guess part of the problem is that this story has some tropes that I'm just not a fan of generally. The whole mpreg thing is kind of odd to me; I mean, no shame in anyone's game, but that just isn't something that I see in a book's description and think "OMG MUST READ GIMME GIMME GIMME." But, like I said, I did enjoy the first boo I really enjoyed the first book in the series, so of course I had to download the second book in the series as soon as it was available. And...I didn't really like it. I guess part of the problem is that this story has some tropes that I'm just not a fan of generally. The whole mpreg thing is kind of odd to me; I mean, no shame in anyone's game, but that just isn't something that I see in a book's description and think "OMG MUST READ GIMME GIMME GIMME." But, like I said, I did enjoy the first book in the series, and that had mpreg in it, so I was definitely willing to give the trope another go. I'm also not a fan of age gap romances most of the time. There have been some that have really captivated me, but those stories had other reasons (fantastic writing, engaging plot, amazing characters, etc), and the age gap thing just kind of faded into the background for me. Once again, I am not trying to say that this trope sucks or anyone who enjoys it should be ashamed or whatever - it just isn't something that I particularly enjoy. There's a definite age gap here - Dale is 20 years older than Greg. Theoretically. Except he doesn't really come across that way as a character. Dale has been hurt, so I get that he's kind of sheltered himself away from the world and this might have stunted his emotional maturity a bit. I also understand that he's an omega, which affects things (more on that later). But, honestly, for being Greg's college professor (and, believe me, there is no way that you won't remember that, because Dale brings it up at least a zillion times in the story), he doesn't seem that much more mature than Greg. Twenty years is a big gap, and there's a lot of life experience in there, but it just didn't come across that way. Anyway. Dale's been told that he's practically infertile. He was divorced because of his infertility, which is apparently a big shame in this society, and he's dedicated himself to chemistry and his professional work. But he has the hots for Greg, not only a student in his class but the college's president's son, and Greg is pursuing him something fierce. (view spoiler)[They sleep together once, and Greg apparently has supersperm because he gets Dale pregnant after one time. O...kay. That doesn't seem realistic, but...okay. Dale spends much of the book lamenting the fact that he's Greg's teacher, that he's too old, that he's going to lose the pregnancy because he's too old, that Greg is going to find a younger and better omega out there and leave him. It all comes back to Greg leaving him for one reason or another. Okay, I get that. I do understand that. And Dale does his best at pushing Greg away (sadly, I also understand that), but Greg kind of sticks around (sort of) and they end up together. The end. Saved you a read. (hide spoiler)] I think a lot of people who like the age gap dynamic might be a bit disappointed in this one, simply because there isn't really an emotional gap between the two characters. Also, the older character is usually portrayed as more worldly/experienced/dominant in these kinds of stories, and Dale is, well, not any of these things, really. I guess one could argue that it's trying to subvert the trope a bit or whatever, but I really don't see it that way, and that comes across more as a happy accident than anything else. The dynamics in this world...I don't really like them. I know that at least part of the point of a/b/o fiction is that omegas are generally weaker and need protecting and all of this bullshit, but it just wasn't working for me here. Dale was treated like absolute garbage because of his infertility, and was essentially tossed aside as a productive member of society simply because he couldn't have children. Furthermore, omegas are at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to professional goals, as well. (view spoiler)[We are told frequently that Dale would have made tenure already if he had been an alpha, but because he's an omega, he has to work harder than any other alpha or beta just to get the same level of recognition. This aligns too closely to how women are treated in the workplace, even today, for me to "enjoy" this setting. (hide spoiler)] And that brings me to the second thing that really made this book unenjoyable for me. (view spoiler)[Second: Once it is discovered that Dale and Greg are sleeping together (by Greg's father, and they were pretty much caught in the act), Dale is fired from the college. I can kind of understand that; I'm sure professors probably have to sign some ethical statement that they won't sleep with their students. It certainly seemed that way in this world, at least. So Dale needs a new job, and since he boots Greg to the curb (again - this time in an effort to "free him"), he has to be able to support himself and his baby. Instead of seeking jobs in his field, he applies for a daycare center in Meadowfall. I also kind of understand that; he has his apartment here, he has friends here, and it might be too much to try to have a baby and move and etc. And omegas aren't treated all that well, so I'm sure an unmarried one with a baby on the way might not get such a great opportunity. But Greg decides to walk away entirely from the field where he's dedicated much blood, sweat, and tears for the last fifteen years of his life. Okay, that's fine - if that is his choice. But it never felt like it was his choice at all. It just felt like he was saying, "okay, since I'm an omega and I'm having a kid, I need to go into a care-related field now, and my big bad alpha will go on to study chemistry and work outside the home because that is his 'job' as an alpha, and my 'job' as an omega is to stay home (or work in a suitable care-related field) and care for our child." No. I have known too many women in my day - promising, bright, intelligent women - who have decided to stay at home or work jobs that they don't enjoy because their husbands want them to do that. And if it's your choice - that's fine! Great! But when it's not your choice...yeah, not so fine and not so great. And I never felt like this was Dale's choice. I feel like it was society placing this expectation on him, and he went with it because that is what you are "supposed" to do. Why can't he have both? Why can't he have a career he enjoys AND children? (hide spoiler)] Apparently there was also a third thing that really bothered me, but I didn't bother to write it down in my notebook, and I can't remember what it is. LOL If I remember that, I'll come back to rant. ;) I did enjoy that there were lesbian couples in this world - apparently no one really cares who is gay/straight/bi etc, you're just supposed to pair off according to your alpha/beta/omega status. But that did leave me with a question or two. (view spoiler)[First off, it was said that Greg got involved with his best friend and they were both alphas (I think). He did say that it was frowned upon, but not much was said. Do two alphas paired together work in this world? I'm really curious, because I have read other a/b/o stories when two alphas hooking up was like this horrible gross thing that everyone despised. Second...how does it "work" between a male omega and a female alpha? Or a female omega and a female alpha. I mean, I'm not asking how lesbian sex works (lololol already know, thanks, and it works great ;) ), but when Dale (a male omega) became pregnant, his friend June (a female alpha, whom he had been having a pretend relationship with to keep Greg and others at bay) said that she would be proud to pretend to be the baby mama, like no one would be suspicious if she impregnated Dale. How...exactly...would she have gotten Dale pregnant? Do female alphas have a penis or some other way of transferring genetic material to omegas? I'm really curious, and there were no answers to be had! Okay, I just tried to google the answer and apparently female alphas do have a penis, but it's smaller than a male alpha's. I'm less confused in some respects, but now more confused in others. (hide spoiler)] Altogether, this really wasn't an enjoyable book for me.

Dale has such poor self-esteem because of a past emotionally/verbally relationship. He repeatedly states he's not worthy of love. The problem with this story is he states this OVER and OVER again. If I had a dollar for every time Dale stated he wasn't worthy, or "we shouldn't do this", or "you're my student/I'm your professor"....I could afford to buy all the books in my TBR list. I can see Dale haven't self-esteem issues, but truly...he was soooo whiny I really couldn't see what Greg saw in him. It really wasn't expressed what the attraction was for Greg. Despite all this, the story kept my attention to the end, I was rooting for them (for some reason). I think a lot of it was Greg, and how mature and sweet he was and how much he really supported Dale. The book fulfilled it's purpose, which was to get my out of a funk.

    I love me a good age-gap romance, paranormal or not, so this blurb hooked me in. This non-shifter story has likable characters each with their own distinct voice, good UST, nice chemistry throughout and centres on an older omega with fertility issues. It has an interesting take on scent marking I've never come across in Omegaverse books before, but it also include a pet peeve of mine; characters smelling like plants.

    2 1/2 stars The writing is not bad but I do have issues with the content. This is a subgenre that has so many possibilities (M/M Romance with the added MPreg Alpha/Omega variables) but so many authors continue to treat it the same as the old M/F trashy romance novels, with the supermasculine alpha hero and the dainty feminine omega heroine (in this case only changing the sex). It has gotten to the point where some of the sexual responses of females have been transposed to Omega males. When I thin 2 1/2 stars The writing is not bad but I do have issues with the content.

It had a decent story like and the characters were somewhat developed. Dale and Greg are two worlds apart. Greg is an alpha who comes from money, but remains thumbed underneath his father's power. Dale is a shamed omega who was divorced because of his infertility. He is a professor at the university where Greg's father is president. Greg and Dale have been dancing around the attraction for as long as either of them can remember. As an unmated omega Dale has to hide his scent and pretend to be claimed by an alpha to keep Greg away from him. When the alpha Dale uses pulls a move to make her own life happen, the one time Dale goes without a strong enough mark, the restraint between him and Greg crumbles. So, Greg and Dale sleep together and Dale unwittingly falls pregnant. This is not exactly a fated mates story, but it is very much an insta-love/attraction. I suppose what helps is that technically it's more attraction than love that gets them in each other's pants. Dale's issues with relationships from his past experience have him on the more cautious side of being in love. The story itself is good, but the writing leaves something to be desired. Wineheart has a LOT of dialoug and is very much lacking in her complex writing of detail. We're told a good chunk of the story. The most consistently strong part is the smut. We're told a lot of how the emotion between the two characters develops. We don't see it. I said this was an insta-attraction, and it because the push to their relationship development is shallow and is supported only by the pregnancy and them sleeping together in random increments. The baby was a circumstance of the story. I didn't feel like it was as core of the story as it should have been because the affects on Dale were very limited. You could almost forget he was supposed to be pregnant about 75% of the time. And speaking to the characters themselves. Dale's dad was a jerk. He was also another circumstance that should have had more emphasis than it did, although I will say it got better towards the end. But Dale, he's supposed to be 42 years old. First, on the cover he doesn't look at all 40 anything, barely 30. In the story he doesn't act like it either. There's no apparent correlation between his character's personality, age and experience as there should be. Greg played his part a little bit better as the young, impulsive, alpha. While he wasn't overly obnoxious he had his annoying aspects which I chalk up to his young age as an alpha with heavy responsibility. I think the story needs to be revised and edited for me to give it a higher rating. This was a freely given, honest ARC review.

    This series is set in another universe where there is no discrimination due to sexuality, men/men, women/women, men/ omen whatever configuration is accepted and both men and women can have babies. But there is another level of discrimination going on here only omegas can have babies and only alphas can give them babies. Also alphas are top of the social ladder and omegas are lower. Betas are somewhere in between and can only mate with other betas and must adopt if they want children.

But there is another level of discrimination going on here only omegas can have babies and only alphas can give them babies. Also alphas are top of the social ladder and omegas are lower. Betas are somewhere in between and can only mate with other betas and must adopt if they want children. Anyone can aspire to any job but it takes omegas longer to get tenure or permanent status in jobs. Unmated omegas are seen as less valuable, and infertility a stigma to some and divorce is a real faux pas. In this story the fact that our professor is an omega finds him waiting an extra 2 years to earn his tenure, he’s also divorced because he did not conceive in three years and his alpha got their marriage annulled. Then along comes his new alpha not only is he twenty years younger, reckless, but he is the college president’s son. The college president is wrapped in status and his colleges success that he finds his sons choice of omega unacceptable and of course it breaks a major rule at the college Professors cannot sleep with students. It’s a long hard road for our mates to make it to the altar. But never fear there is a happy ending.

    I first read Omega Teacher's Baby back when it was a short story. At the time I was so annoyed it was only a short because I really wanted to know what happened with Greg and Dale. Was so happy to discover that Anna was turning it into a full novel. This is a really enjoyable non-shifter Alpha/omega mpreg story. It was refreshing to see that the omega was the older of the two MCs and the alpha the younger - you don't see that very often in ABO stories.

I really felt for Dale's history and his past as a young omega with his evil ex. Watching Greg step up and be the alpha that Dale needed was sweet especially in the face of the pressure he was under from his father to settle down with an appropriate omega. If you read and loved Leta Blake's Slow Heat then I think you'll enjoy this book especially if you love your mpreg full of knotting, heats and fated mates. And who knew origami cranes could be so romantic.

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I loved these two in Anna’s short and was excited to read a more in depth story about them. Dale is such a sweetheart except he tries to keep it hidden underneath his professional exterior.

    4/5 Kinks aside, and you know this book hit the spot for me, this has been a pleasant surprise. The book was well written, and I appreciate how the author craft emotion into her plot. Everything felt natural, rather force. However, there are part of the book that I feel need some trimming. Like the rehashing of why they shouldn't be together, it's was frequent enough that I felt it was right on the line of being redundant. Aside for this, I thoroughly enjoyed the story.

I was having trouble looking for something to read and thought "How about some mpreg?" and mpreg can be a hit or miss, easy - miss more than hit, usually - but overall I'd say this was a hit for me for this new to me author. The writing was good, the story structure was good, the characters were interesting, story was interesting. I liked Greg a lot, he was my favorite of the two. Greg is the 22 year old Alpha who is Dale's student, who gets him pregnant. Dale is the 42 year old Omega professor who Greg pursues and who totally has a big 'ol crush on Greg. Dale was, for the most part, likable. After awhile his constant "we shouldn't be doing this" "you're my student" "this is wrong" "we should stop this" - both saying and thinking it - got tiresome and annoying. But with just that, overall I would have this story probably 4.5 stars. Because despite how annoying that was, Dale was still giving into his desires with Greg, he and Greg still had sweet, romantic moments, as well as sexy moments, so it wasn't that much of a deterrent to my overall enjoyment of the story up to a certain point. But around 77%, things went to shit, and Dale annoyed the fuck out of me and just pissed me off, until about 90% when he finally gets his head out of his ass. Look, okay, the main story is that Greg is the son of the president of the university that Greg goes to and Dale works at. Now Greg's father is an asshole, who has a specific future for Greg in mind that he wants Greg to follow, and not only does he disapprove because Dale is Greg's professor - which is the only understandable part - but he looks down on Dale and looks down on him and threatens to make things difficult if Greg and Dale continue to see each other, and so on. So to a certain extent, I understand why Dale does what he does. But the way he goes about it? Absolutely pisses me off. (view spoiler)[So how Greg's dad finds out is by walking in on Greg and Dale just as they've finished having sex. Greg and his dad have an argument, his dad is being horrible, all that. And Dale just up and ends it with Greg right then and there. Which, understandable to happen right away. And Dale has certainly felt like he is not worthy of Greg, that he's too old for him, that Greg deserves a bright future not including him, that he'll take full responsibility for their baby, all that. But then he completely cuts Greg off. Completely. Doesn't answer his calls, takes the key he'd given Greg to his apartment, even goes as far as to put Greg's things on his doorstep so he won't have to see Greg. Even when Greg tries to see him at the college, he books it out of there before Greg can see him. Dale's friend, June...or something like that, I'm forgetting her name, even says to give Dale "some time" and that Greg has "hurt him enough" and I'm sitting here like...the fuck? Is is Greg's fault that they were caught? No. Before they're caught Dale acts all surprised when Greg says his parents have a key to his apartment and even asks "why didn't you tell me?" but earlier in the book Greg already told him that. He literally says that. I don't know if the author just forgot, but you can't put that on Greg when he literally told Dale about his parents having a key earlier in the book. Also, Greg's father had a rental car and didn't tell Greg that, so how is Greg supposed to know that? Now Greg made mistakes, sure. Being at his apartment where his dad has a key is still risky, and he doesn't answer when he his dad calls, he's a young, reckless guy. Sure. But it's mistakes, not his fault. And like Dale isn't responsible for his own decisions either? And maybe the author was writing from a POV of Dale not knowing about the keys, but she literally wrote Greg telling Dale, so I'd say that's also on Dale. Anyway, Greg didn't mean any of that to happen, he stood up for Dale against his dad, he didn't want to end things, and DALE is the one who did. So how, exactly, did Greg hurt him? Color me confused. If that was it, I still wouldn't have taken a whole other star off, but then Dale proceeds to shut Greg out for two months. Greg calls and Dale never calls back, just listens to Greg's voicemails. Then Dale comes to one of Greg's basketball games and they have an encounter, but then Dale pushes Greg away even more by being an asshole and then goes another two months with shutting him out. What really pisses me off about all that, is that he takes away Greg's choice and thinks it's okay. Look, I know what Dale went through, how horrible he was treated earlier in his life. I know all that, so I understand Dale's viewpoint, completely. But that doesn't mean he gets to make Greg's choices for him. He thinks Greg deserves better than him, so he cuts him out - yes, Greg's dad finding out about them and threatening them is part of it, but it's not all of it - and doesn't let Greg talk to him, doesn't even bother to hear him out or what he has to say. Even though he listens to Greg's voicemails, that's not talking to him at all. Also, they're having a child together and Dale's just kind of like "Uh, I'll deal with how Greg can be in his child's life and how I can avoid him at the same time when the time comes" LIKE? Okay, Dale doesn't have to be with Greg if he doesn't want to. That is totally up to him. But when it comes to a child, not only is that child also Greg's, but Greg also has legal rights? I don't think it's fair at all to take Greg's choice away on whether or not to be in his child's life either. Now sure, they resolve their issues before Dale actually has the baby, but still. Dale is fully expecting to "never see Greg again", so? He was fully planning to somehow have the baby and not let Greg be a part of his child's life? Or be a part of it but somehow not be in Dale's life? How does that work? It just felt like, in the end, four months of them being apart just so we could angst for angst's sake. If they had had a few days, a week even, even two weeks, apart to cool off and think about things, that's one thing. But 4 months? Come on. And Dale being stubborn for no real reason. And the thing that gets his head out of his ass? HE is being a moron and runs away from Greg at his friends wedding - because god forbid he face Greg and talk to him! - and he's six months pregnant, on an already risky pregnancy, and goes walking along the interstate - or some road - and there's a truck driving recklessly and Greg goes after Dale in his car and stops the truck with his own car, to save Dale. Because Dale's a moron. And Greg possibly dying, THAT'S what makes Dale miraculously go "Oh I don't want to lose Greg, none of that shit I cared so much before as to cause us both heartbreak matters anymore. Fuck it all, I'm all in with Greg" Like? It felt so stupid. Dale felt so stupid. I usually don't mind one LI who is the one being so scared to be all in with the other having to witness their LI almost dying and realizing all the bullshit doesn't matter, but in this instance it did. It just....bothered me. Probably because Dale's reasons beforehand were so stupid, and with just how he handled it all, how he treated Greg, how except for that one encounter, he never even allowed Greg to get near him, how he was planning to potentially cut Greg out of their child's life. It just pissed me off annoyed the fuck out of me, and then Greg has to literally almost die just because Dale himself was being a moron for Dale to see the light, so to speak, and get the fuck over himself. And what's also funny, is that Greg's father turns out to be inconsequential. All his threats mean nothing in the end. He doesn't even TRY to do anything, and Dale was apparently so scared that he would do something to hurt Greg and others? (Like, how would Greg's father, a university president, be able to get a daycare shut down? The fuck?) (hide spoiler)] It was all TOO much. And if the rest of the book hadn't been so good enjoyable, I probably would have rated this book 1 or 2 stars just for this stretch of the book alone. It was such bullshit, so contrived, so stupid and eye-roll inducing. And Dale? Doesn't really face any consequences for his idiocy. Greg doesn't call him out on his shit, not Dale's friends, no one. And then they just go on to have the baby and be happy and all that, which was nice on it's own, no doubt, but with what had just happened, I wish Dale had faced just a little more consequences, at least a little more ire for his stupidity and bullshit. So that is why I gave this 3.5 stars instead of more, even though for the majority of this book, I was enjoying it a lot and loving the characters and their relationship and the story and all that. Which is why I also rounded up instead of down. Because for the most part, I enjoyed this and I think my rating should reflect that. But if the rest of the book hadn't held up? This book would have gotten quite a few stars less just because of the bullshit that happens for 13% of this book near the end. It put such a damper on a really enjoyable book. So would I recommend this? Hmm....before 77%, I would have said hell yes, if you're into mpreg. Now, I'm not sure. I'd leave it up to you guys. I can say that this is good, it has hot sex scenes, good chemistry, good romance between these two for the most part. And the majority of this book IS good, IS enjoyable for sure. But that stretch of the book is just...so rage inducing, that I almost don't want to recommend this. And Dale's "he deserves better" over and over and over again CONSTANTLY up until that bad stretch is really annoying. So....while I'm rounding up to 4 stars with this, if what I put under the spoiler section sounds like it would piss you off a lot like it did me, then no, I wouldn't recommend this. IF you think you could live through reading it and don't think it would piss you off a ton, then I'd say I recommend this. Because overall, I found this author to be a good writer, and that's hard to come by with published mpreg stories, I think. But also...this author wrote that nonsensical, stupid, ridiculous, rage inducing stretch of the book. SO.....it's really up to you. In the end, I had a lot of mixed emotions when it came to this. It was well done overall, but also fell into the trap of angst for angst's sake with not much of the character's motivations making much sense. So...yeah. A mixed bag, in the end.

I love all her books; she’s a great writer. What I like was that Anna starts us out with the thrill of the forbidden romance early. Professor Dale Kinney taught chemistry at Meadowfall College and has a huge crush on Meadowfall Lion’s star basketball player, Greg Hastings. The twenty-two year old Alpha student had his own crush on Dale. He’d asked the professor out for coffee many times with Dale always refusing. First of all a teacher doesn’t date their students, it’s a perfect way to be fired. Plus, Greg was the first born son of his employer, the president of the college, Bernard Hastings. Greg’s father would be furious if he knew of their affair. Dale’s forty-two so the twenty years difference in age was like a thorn in Dale’s side. Dale was the pessimist, not just about his age but other things as well where Greg was the optimist in the relationship. Be prepare for a lot of hot sex between these two men, they can get your heart rate up; plus Dale gets knocked up. What I liked most about the storyline is it started out with Dale pregnant near the beginning, so you could get to know what a wonderful Alpha Greg is to Dale. Dale’s problem was he fought against the relationship right from the start. I love Greg’s character. Greg was the total opposite from Dale’s first Alpha he was married to. I’m not going into the whys about Dale’s divorce, it’s better to read it. But Dale never felt he deserved happiness. Greg adored Dale, but even Greg had his own ghost that haunted his thoughts. It’s the guilt when he couldn’t save his best friend from a cabin fire while camping. The two boys were still teenagers, but the connection was deep between them. Greg’s father just brushed it off and told his son to move on. So, it’s been something Greg found hard to talk about. Greg also to deal with his pretentious father’s demands for Greg to find an omega to bond with; but Greg already had his bondmate picked out and now his omega was pregnant; all the more Dale was his. Dale gives in after Greg’s constant upbeat feelings about them as a couple, so Greg moved in for a trail. It was the happiness time in Dale and Greg’s lives. Both men go through heartache after Greg’s father discovers their relationship. Dale fired on the spot and Dale to Greg it was over for good even though he was pregnant he’d find another job. The separation was hurtful and full of heartache. The writing is emotional that at some points I cried I was so caught up in the story. The hurt wasn’t one sided, both the men suffered, with Dale saying it was over Greg still couldn’t let go of his omega. Boy did my heart ached for these two men and I wondered if either one of them could ever escape their ghosts from their past relationships. It was pretty intense. Ms.. Wineheart’s writing was beautifully romantic, even with the intense emotions. All of the characters I got to know in the book, I could picture them and I felt their anger, shock, or whatever other emotions were involved. You won’t go wrong in reading this wonderful book by Anna Wineheart. I give her five huge stars! And I’ll tell you, I’m looking forward to any of her next books coming out. Great read and I highly recommend it. I read a complimentary Advanced Reader Copy of this book & am voluntarily leaving an honest and unbiased review.

The dynamics of the relationship really do change when the younger man is the alpha and also a college student and the "other" man is his professor. Greg wants his chemistry professor while his professor wants Greg as well which is taboo. Dale Kinney is a lonely unbonded omega being pursued by Greg. He knows he shouldn't want a student like he does since he's a 42 yr old, infertile, and broken omega and his feelings terrify him. His past failures have convinced him that even if he were younger he is still unworthy. Greg is also haunted by a past failure that he can't move on from when his best friend dies tragically in a fire. Greg is the college president's son so that makes him doubly off limits but he keeps pushing Dale until he finally caves. Their first heated coupling has serious consequences for the two men. Greg wants to rush his fences where Dale wants to be invisible to everyone except his alpha. Everyday they're together they each fall more in love all though Dale still suffers the insecurities from his past. When Gregs father stumbles upon the two and their secret Dale loses his job as a professor and the two are torn apart. The two men have any number of questions they each need to find the answers to. Is the 20 year difference in their ages really a factor to their relationship? Can Dale get past what he feels are his many failings? Can Greg let go of the past and look to a future Dale? Can these two men go out into the world as a couple regardless of the judgmental attitudes of others that they might have to face? Can the three become a true family with a bright and happy future? Read this poignant slightly unusual love story for yourself and enjoy.

I enjoyed what I'd read and was pleased to find it was a full story. This is Book 2 in the Men of Meadowfall series and it read well as a standalone. This is a May-December omegaverse/non-shifter mpreg story. Dale is 42, a Professor teaching Chemistry and is an omega. Having been divorced by his former Alpha for being infertile, he seems set on the path of academia. Greg is 22, son of the Principle of the University, basketball captain and Alpha, with his sights on Dale. After an explosive bonding, Dale finds he is pregnant and Greg steps up to be his Omega's Alpha, but the journey is not a smooth one.... This was a page-turner. Both characters have baggage - Greg lost his BFF in a fire and this plays heavily on his avoidance of planning for the future, but his responsibility to protect Dale is front and centre as he battles with his feelings. This is much to the annoyance of his Father who wants him to settle with an appropriate omega of good breeding and age. Dale's sudden transition from a teacher to having an unreachable dream - a child, hit me with the feels. Seriously, the yo-yo thoughts and rollercoaster emotions, especially around the age gap between him and Greg was a constant thread until a near fatal event brings it all to a head. There was plenty of sweetness and fluff - the baby romper suits and especially the box of paper cranes just made me a pile of *goo*. I loved the age difference and the characters were well defined with their responsibilities, attitudes and outlook on life. There was plenty of knotting, marking and a couple of OMFG moments! The story ends on a strong HFN and left me with a contented *sigh* Enjoyable read.

    This book was alright. I liked that Dale was a bit insecure and that Greg was too. They weren't really a typical alpha/omega pairing and I enjoyed the different dynamics that were brought out in this story. Greg has a lot of growing up to do, that's for sure, but he is only 22 so I'm okay with his immaturity. To a point.

Him stepping up to be with Dale is the best part of him and I really love that he's willing despite being scared and unprepared for what life with a baby means. Dale is vulnerable because of his age, his past, his insecurities, and because of how much of the consequences he will face because of his position and everything that he is. When things blow up in their faces I ache for Dale because of just how high the cost is on his end. I don't know that I enjoy where he's forced to go with his career. I also don't see his confidence fully restored by the end but there is definite progress so I'm glad that Greg could help to build him up after Charles brought him so low. It seems like there is a whole world of information about alphas and omegas and their hierarchy that I'm just supposed to know about even though it's only vaguely explained. The story could also have been condensed quite a bit. It felt like the halfway mark would never arrive, it dragged really badly. Once things picked up it was one bad thing after another and a lot of heartache before the conclusion came. The car vs. truck thing felt really out of place and I felt like something else should have been used as a carrier for the announcement and reunion. Other than that, the story had some good points with the characters actually feeling like they should be together despite what was against them. 2.5 stars.

    I received an ARC edition of this book from the author. May/December romances can be a bit of a hit or miss for me (most are a miss), but I'm really glad I gave this one a chance. I loved the chemistry between Dale and Greg. Both of them are more than just a little bit broken emotionally due to their past, and those issues don't just magically disappear because they find each other.

The pregnancy may have given them an excuse to get together, but I really liked that they don't jump quite instantly into 'I love you' (it's still rather quick if you look at the timeline, but it didn't feel instant while reading the story). I hate Greg's parents, not just his father who really is an overbearing jerk, but his mother seems to just make excuses for how Bernard treated Greg and Dale. I also wasn't a huge fan of the conflict/resolution between Greg and Dale (it works, but I just didn't think it was as good as the rest of the book). (view spoiler)[They spent essentially 4 months apart, and then it's all resolved in a moment (a "you almost died" moment, but that felt a little like saying if there hadn't been such a moment Dale wouldn't have taken Greg back). Also, Dale has a second sonogram picture taken, but there is no mention of Greg actually getting the picture. I also wasn't a huge fan of Dale thinking he had the right to decide a child would ruin Greg's life. Greg is an adult and though he is young, he has a right to decide if he wants to be involved in the child's life. (hide spoiler)] Although the characters from the first book in the series make an appearance in this book, you don't have to read it to enjoy this book.

Greg was an angel in my books. And then for everyone to turn around and say he had hurt Dale. That was enough for me. Dale is a 40 year old man who wants Greg to bone him all the time and cant make up his own mind, even when he leaves Dale.The relationship was on both of them. I dont know whether its how omegas in this universe are supposed to be but Dale was totally spineless. And yes Greg deserved better. But when Greg started to go all doormat ish, I wasnt even angry anymore. At that point I stopped caring. Probably he WAS too young to know better or whatever. 😩 2 solid stars for the writing. It was really good. All those tidbits like cranes and onesies and pictures that was really cute and very refreshing.

    This story is okay. I enjoyed the forbidden aspect of the teacher student relationship, but in an a/b/o world that seems to be a trope that doesn’t make all that much sense to me. If an omega goes into heat and an alpha is close enough to have their rut triggered, society as a whole shouldn’t have an issue with that regardless of the circumstances… or the ages of the alpha and omega.

Dale with his doctorate in Chemistry is an omega that has made a life for himself in spite of being rejected by his previous mate due to infertility. Greg is a twenty two year old student who is in Dale’s class. Sparks fly when Dale goes into heat and miracle of miracles, he gets knocked up. Greg is an upstanding alpha and wants to be there for Dale and his child. It’s just a sweet story that is entertaining, but needs a grammatical editor in the worst kind of way. I swear this author doesn’t know the difference between a verb and an adjective. She also doesn’t seem to know the past tense of certain words. I guarantee the internet knows if she’s unsure. Takes all of two seconds to look something like that up. I hate reading a sentence and going… wtf did I just read? That didn’t make sense. If she went through and corrected all her grammatical mistakes I would gladly give this book a 4 star rating. As it stands it gets a three because the story didn’t bore me and I like the characters.

Overall, this was a sweet read with likeable characters and an even sweeter HEA. Part of the Men of Meadowfall series but all can be read as a standalone:

    I really liked this, I read the first book last year and I liked the author's writing. I loved it wasn't a first-person perspective, I usually hate those! Dale was charming and Greg was lovely, the age difference played a huge role here. We had Greg who lived under the thumb of his father's need for bonding and being always on top. And we had Dale, divorced and forced to give up his dream of being a parent. Make this a recipe for love! I loved them together, they were charming and lovely.

While Dale always kept in mind the age difference, the need for Greg to find someone his age so later he would not regret this decision, we also had him terrified of being a parent after being told it would be impossible. I loved his sense of responsibility, his horror of being discovered having this taboo relationship. But most of all I loved his need for Greg not to regret this and the paper cranes - the thousand paper cranes. It was charming and full of angst yet not the type it would turn you off from reading until the end.

    I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is my first time reading a book by Anna Wineheart and I really enjoyed it. It is beautifully written and I love MPREG stories but I wish it had been faster paced in the middle. Being a May/December story with the omega older than the alpha was a nice change up. Dale is a divorced omega and a chemistry professor who has a crush on one of his students.

This is my first time reading a book by Anna Wineheart and I really enjoyed it. It is beautifully written and I love MPREG stories but I wish it had been faster paced in the middle. Being a May/December story with the omega older than the alpha was a nice change up. Dale is a divorced omega and a chemistry professor who has a crush on one of his students. Greg is an alpha who has spent two months trying to get his cute professor to go out with him and he is the son of the college president. Greg's father is insisting that he bond with a suitable omega and he will never accept Dale because of his age and lack of status. They have a very rough road to travel and having to keep their relationship a secret is making everything more difficult. I love when a book makes me cry and has a HEA. I can't wait to read more of this series and her other books.
