Omega Replaced (Omega Reimagined Book 5) by Tanya Chris
Alpha Donovan is certain his work recovering missing omegas is a service—to the alphas who hire him and to the omegas themselves. What he’s less confident about is his unconventional desire to be dominated. No alpha is supposed to want that.
When Donovan arrives in North Leland, he expects it to be just another job. Find the omega, bring her home. Then he meets Judge Tarek, the gorgeous alpha determined to thwart his mission. Tarek disapproves of his job, but not his fantasies, which he’s ready and oh-so-able to fulfill.
Everything is backwards in this strange town. Wanting another alpha’s teeth in your neck is okay, but returning an omega to their rightful place isn’t? Donovan has a lot to learn, and if he can’t change his way of thinking fast enough, he’s going to lose what he’s never allowed himself to believe he could have.

Is their marriage a blessing…or a curse?
Tom Drake wants nothing to do with his patron goddess. Her blessing has always been little more than a cruel curse.

“He was like if water caught fire—a beautiful anomaly. It was gorgeous. Danny wanted to exist inside that explosion and let himself be consumed by it.”
With his life upended at the sight of his cheating boyfriend, Danny Zhou flees across the country with two million dollars in his bank account, and a broken heart to mend.

Will working together lead to a happy ending, or will Danny find that true love just isn’t in his cards?

I survive on avoidance. Physical pain to avoid the mental. Disposable flesh to avoid relationships. Work to avoid attachment. My club became my empire of avoidance. Inside the ring millions are won and lost. The fight is confined to breaths, actions and reactions, fists and pain. Rules don’t exist. Only my opponent exists.
I’d been avoiding my needs for far too long when Remi stumbles into the Inferno and I’m hungry. The promise of a submissive with no attachment is far too tempting. I can’t resist him. He was only supposed to be a distraction, but I know I’ll never get over him. There isn’t a chance in this clouded hell.
After an exciting but tiring grand opening of my store I had an unexpected visitor. Mira Sanchez. The Mira Sanchez.
The gorgeous latina left my heart in shambles and my body craving her touch after just one night.
So when she appeared with flowers and a bottle of wine, I’m more than a little surprised. She tells me she’s come back for me…
Guess what happens next…..#lesbian #sex
