I found Gabriel to be too submissive for my tastes, and his flashes of independence made me think that this relationship was not something he truly wanted; that the bond between him and his Master was more coercion and Stockholm syndrome than twu lurve. He is physically unable to tell this guy no, and has to be forced into setting his limits. He says he doesn't want a 24-7 D/S relationship, and then all of a sudden he does. It seems like his personal desires have been manipulated by the mating b

That will be the theme of this review. So please cum hither!

I'm pretty sure I've never abandoned a book this early on, but I waded through 2 torturous chapters AKA 25 pages and I... can't... take... any... more.

Am I overreacting? Exaggerating? It’s true that I don’t particularly delight in geysers of sperm. It’s also a fact that I could be offered a million and still decline being on the receiving end at a bukkake party. If thick globs of cum, showers of spunk, and ropey sprays turn you on l

Once upon a time... he was normal! Once upon a time... he was human! Now... he was running from the man who's very being he craved more than life itself!...

This is the second novel I have read from Kari Gregg and I have to say I love her style of writing... she hits you hard and fast, immediately gaining your attention, throwing you into the middle of the action before the details are drip fed slowly, encouraging you to turn the pages for more snippets of information.

The Gregg

It happened again. I'm not sure how she does it, but The Gregg did it again. She's little by little making me her dirty little bitch.


I picked this up and the next thing I knew I was done. I was sucked into the KNOTTING/shifter/fuckhot/slaveboy/collars void. Ok, ok, I went willingly. Who am I kidding?



A couple times. Tis true. Cal and Gabriel are that hot.

"Mine to feed, mine to fuck. Mine to play with, punish, and protect. Say it."

What a pile of rubbish this was...

Since I already have a Gabriel in mind when I hear that name, I changed this ones name to Hans-Peter (HP). Cal goes by Sunshine, since we didn't learn Cal's name before around 30% of the book, and I refuse to refer to him as either Master or Sir, by then Sunshine was firmly established as his name in my mind.

And not saying a word about the writing-style (I think I was to shocked and disgusted by the content to actually notice the style), here are some of the mom
Luscious, erotic shifter BDSM. Lots of sex but what sex it is!

Mesmerized by the obsession between Cal and Gabriel, I couldn't put this down. At times I really wanted Gabriel to pull away and keep some part of himself, reclaim his independence. He didn't ask for what happened to him...or, did he? Seduced by the idea of two people belonging so completely to each other, I totally loved this.

This was yummy; hot sex that's kind of violent, and the author doesn't explain the whole world to us but gives us some info along the way and trusts us to work it out.

1 star - this story was a mess, with contradictions and scenarios that baffled me.

Cover - the single torso works for me, the scratches on the backdrop are good. There's a sort of water stain on his belly that bleeds out a tattoo on his arm - is this meant to be there?

MC's - Gabriel - a submissive, 32 years old, accountant. Story is from his 3rd person POV. Cal - dominant shifter (wolf), alpha, runs an investment company.

BDSM - yes, there's lots. Spanking, both as punishment and pleasure. Tattoo

If you like BDSM and shifters then you'll love this one! It was my first book by Kari Gregg and I thought the story was well written, fast paced and really hot. My only disappointment is that there's no sequel.
This one was odd. I did like it... I did, but not as much as I thought i would. Gabriel is a slave boy/pet for at least 80% of the book, as in he gets dressed, fed, constantly bound and is even assisted in going to the toilet by his master, with no say or opinon of his own, not that he wants one...I think. That was the other issue, he was very very conflicted about whether he wanted to be with Cal or not and while it added an element of dub con to the story, I think he was too submissive for me ...more

No one, and I mean no one, can write a submissive character quite like Kari Gregg. Gabriel is amazing, and Cal seriously knows how to dominate the man. The sex between them is beyond hot, but it wasn't just the sex scenes. Everything about their dynamic is just so intense and erotic.

My main gripe is that I wish the book was longer. I would have liked more world-building, and definitely more of an ending. Like all of Gregg's books, the story feels incomplete and the ending rushed. It's a testame

*sigh. I honestly thought it was going pretty well, too. Well, it was pretty good? Not great. By no means even near great. It was...solid, though, I think. The explorations into Gabe's identity confusion/crisis as a result of the bonding thing were interesting and semi-valid.

And The "resolution" of the giant clusterfuck impasse that went on for literally 75% of the book was the "rape"-love thing I absolutely despise from old yaois - where the uke's technically forced into i

I, Omega was a mixed bag of love and disappointment for me. So let the rambling begin…. :)

We jump right into this story with both feet running. Gabriel had a “normal” day to day life with a job, routine, obligations, and joys. But after one night with Cal, a Dom were-shifter, Gabriel’s life changes forever. Cal takes Gabriel deeper into his submission and into a world filled with dangerous desires and new ways to be marked, cared for and cherished. No matter how fast or far Gabriel runs

Not quite what I was expecting, but in a good way. In a really good way. These are my favorite types of Dom/sub and master/slave relationships.

There is a sweet, sweet slave boy, who wants nothing more than to please his master. Paired with an affectionate and loving master who gives constant praise to their good little slave boy. And pet names like "pretty baby" and "my pet" make me all kinds of hot.

This was an interesting reading experience, in the best sense. The blurb pulled me in, but when I started reading I was disappointed at first. Initially, it sounded a lot like 'just another' Master/slave story with a cruel Master and a more than unwilling sub. Even if the sub 'sort of wanted' to be treated like he was, his mind clearly wasn't into it. I kept reading because a few people had given it great reviews, so, clearly, they saw something here that I hadn't yet discovered.

I have to say, I
Holy f*ck. Amazing how people perspective could changed somehow. I've read this book before. I gave it 2 stars. But I decided to pick it again because it reminds me of 'Collared' by the same author. One of my favorite books of all time.

After re-reading :
How could I gave this 2 stars? F*ck. But that was so good. So sensual. Amazing. I loved this alpha-omega dynamic. The ending was perfect. I don't need another sequel. Prequel? Hell yes.

What I disliked :

I am constantly pushing my boundaries with reading, pushing and trying new things even though I swore I would never touch them. This book, it pushed my boundary of never reading the act of knotting, because honestly, I have seen way too many dogs get “stuck” with knotting and I wasn’t sure how the hell that could be sexy.

You know how it could be sexy?? Kari Gregg that’s how.

This book takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions because you're riding with the main character and he has no clue to what's going on at first. The truths are revealed slowly, peeled away in slow layers that I enjoyed. And I would have worried for him, for Gabriel, that he was being abused but from the beginning, at every moment you hear in his own thoughts that he needs Cal, wants whatever Cal wants, and needs to be claimed by his master. To feel whole, Gabriel needs the ownership and the outw ...more

I'm rounding up because Kari Gregg writes some of the best porn in MM. Yeah, I'm pretty easy.


This is insta-love galore. When the two first meet, Cal's wolf quickly recognizes his mate, while Gabriel finds it impossible to refuse Cal, though he doesn't understand why. Ordinarily, I'd scoff at the whole set-up. But it's shifters and fated mates, so I'll let it pass. Insta comes with the territory.

Despite the flimsy base, the romance is actually quite sweet. Gabriel slowly accepts that he

I can't even say what it is I love about Kari Gregg so much except that it is really hard to find the super-pervy stuff really well written. And Kari Gregg can *write*. For me, this wasn't quite my fave of hers (pretty poison gets my vote for that) but it was definitely more of the perv-fest from my favorite perv-dealer.

Shiznit that was hot. Good golly. And romantic in the end. Yeah, don't give up people who don't like what this seems like it is at the beginning because it's sort of going somewhere else. In fact I'm thinking I should up the stars to five not four because really, it's all sorts of hot, yet touching and tells you something about people too. I think, wait for it this touched me. Yup, no, it's rounding to five stars. I dislike voyeurism, I don't get it. At first I thought Cal was being unn
This one vacillated between 2 and 4 stars for me, so I'm splitting the difference.

It really took a long time to get going on the plot. Gabriel didn't really show a touch of spine or personality until about 60%. Before that he was just a confuzzled cum dump prone to panic attacks and I was stuck in his head. Once the actual story got going I liked it and once Gabriel became an actual character with thoughts outside of Cal I enjoyed it a lot more. Their dynamic after that was my favorite part.

I loved the story. It was intense and sexy and Cal was a perfect dom.
I wish there was more. Jake is definitely an interesting person and I was a little disappointed he had so abruptly vanished at the end of the book. Nevertheless - 5 stars!

This was an odd one for me. I'm writing out my thoughts before I write my official review. I like Ms. Gregg's books. I liked the theme ~ BDSM. I also enjoy shifters. Still, this one rubbed me slightly the wrong way. It's taken me a couple of days to figure out what bothered me. It's the BDSM interaction. It was off for me.

This is not a story without flaws. In fact, I would say there were a lot of things that could have used more work. Explanations were rare and mostly inconclusive. The definition of Gabriel's exact role in that pack wasn't as clearly defined as it could have been and Cal was conflicting in himself and especially when it came to his relationship toward Gabriel.

What bothered me the most was lack of details about the world. It seemed like it would be overwhelming and interesting and I know I would h

At first, the author has a good writing style.
But that is all good what I can say about this book.

Where is the story? What is the story?
Whoever has written the blurb does a really good job.
But the rest of the book?? Eewww!!

Kari Gregg is one of the few author's who can write such short stories that I enjoy. She puts a lot of story in a small number of pages. This story was a D/s m/m read. Now for more then initials.


Gabriel. A human white collar working son of a Senator. A gay submissive. A human Omega. The man an Alpha shifter's wolf chose for his own.

Cal. An Alpha shifter. A dominant who has the tendency to spoil his sub and a man who will hunt you down if you run from him.

Very sexy play in this D/s story that is top notch. While the ending is sweet, the preceding scene seemed a bit too contrived or Cal's pack are useless idiots at patrolling.

“I don't know who-what-I am anymore."

"You're mine. That's all you need to understand." His grasp tightened around Gabriel like steel bands. "Mine to feed, mine to fuck. Mine to play with, punish, and protect. Say it." Gabriel's breath locked in his chest at his furious growl. The shifter snarled Gabriel's name against the tender skin of his throat in stark warning. Gabriel's heart thudded.

"I'm yours," he gasped, scrambling to remember it all. "Yours to feed, yours to fu-" Gabriel shouted when the sharp teeth pierced him. His dick happily stirred.”
“I won’t run.” Gabriel gulped. “I promise.”
“You aren’t being punished; you’re being protected.” Cal snorted. “But you’ll run. When you’re scared or hurt, your first instinct is to run. You can’t help it any more than I can resist chasing you.” The shifter leaned to brush his mouth over Gabriel’s. “Be smart, pet. Run to me.”
