Sooooooooo .. where do I begin? 😂 First of all, I’ll admit that I wasn’t enamored with the omega in the beginning of this book. Don’t get me wrong, I love omega sluts just like everyone else. 😂🤣 And I can’t believe I am saying this but Luca was a bit too slutty and eager for an omega for my taste in the beginning. 😁 But I have never read seal shifters before, the narrator is one of my favorites, John Solo, and he can do no wrong in my eyes, and I really liked the sample so I decided to continue ...more

Heartfelt* Raunchy* Soapy* OTT* describes this MM, Omegaverse , shifter romance story.

I enjoyed listening John Solo , enthusiastic , sexy and engaging narration of The Selkie Prince's Fated Mate .

I received an AXC code from the author and I am voluntary sharing my opinion.

I thought that this was a great story from a new author! Also, I think its the first mpreg selkie romance I have read! I enjoyed the characters (well, except the king and his lackey), and thought that having them be selkie shifters was fresh and fun.

Kai is the oldest of his brothers and thus bears the responsibility of taking over the throne after his father (who is a complete jerk, putting it mildly, lol). During one of the presentation ceremonies he finds his fated omega - his true mate, Luca.

DNF. Boring infertility story plot. Kai was a wimp. Meh relationship development.

This book was a a little bit ridiculous at times, even with it being a PNR. Talk about just accepting something that just seems too bizarre to start with. IMO, if the story was a bit more detailed, these moments may have been avoided. Regardless, I was able to look past those few instances and actually enjoy the story.

DNF @ 30%

Everything was ok up to the point of their Selkie skin was hanging and guarded??????

Just my opinion ..... How big is a Selkie ??? how big is a Human ??? how the hell does that skin look and haw the hell do they get dressed in it???

Sorry for the ones who loved this book - this little thing bothered me just to much to read the rest.

This was almost a DNF for me but I did struggle through it. A great deal of this book was sex and the characters irritated me more than anything else. This could have easily been a MF romance with the switch of a few things. I hated Kai's attitude of "I'm the alpha and you will obey me" he pulled that card several times on Luca and not in a sexy way or "I need to protect you way". The only thing Luca seemed interested in was sex. He didn't seem to have much going for him other than he wanted sex ...more

“You’re right, just being my fated mate does not automatically mean that I love you,”

A different shifter story with several new twists

If you like sex this one has lots of it, and there is a great story to go with it. Kai and Luca are both really sweet.

Kai is an Alpha Selkie Prince, and next in line, is forced to participate in Presentation Ceremonies until he finds his mate. Luca has been presented several times thankfully never being picked, until now. The two are fated mates and it shows

So I totally stumbled into a whole new world with J.J. Masters' Royal Alphas series. This is a new sub-genre for me. I've read a lot of different paranormal romance and erotica, but this was pretty much my first mpreg. While this is the first book I've read by Masters, I can say with confidence, it will not be the last.

The Selkie Prince's Fated Mate is the first in what looks like a planned series for 5 brothers. Masters is building a rich and complex world in the Royal Alphas series and we're i

Good beginning

Good beginning to a new mpreg shifter series. It’s the first one that I’ve read to feature Selkies. The way they shift was interesting to me, and nothing like I’ve read before. The plot is the typical royal prince must beget an heir, and omegas have basically no rights, and the King is a royal douche canoe plot. And it’s done very well, so I’m happy because I love that trope. I love that love trumps all the royal b.s. and that the new generation will forge new paths. The setup for

This book mainly focuses on Kai and Luca getting pregnant and conceiving an alpha heir. The sex was abundant and added some fun to this book but other than that there wasn't a lot of substance to this story, which was a little disappointing. For me personally, I enjoy when a book (especially the first of the series) gives more details rather than leaving breadcrumbs that tie into the rest of the series. If this series wasn't available as the full set then I'm not sure I'd have the pa

For adult readers only due to sexual content.
Kai is the first born son of King Solomon of the Selkies. The king wants to assure his bloodline lives in to hold the throne, so has "showings" for Kai to find his mate and produce an alpha heir. Kai finds his mate in Luca after a few showings and the king gives them six months to become pregnant and it has to be an alpha or the child and the omega (Luca) will be banished. No pressure.
The king is a hard add and seems to care nothing for no one other t

Wow what an amazing surprise I got when I asked a question on the Facebook site Begging for Mpreg and MM. I said I never read anything about selkies and if someone could recommend a good book. Well did they ever. I wasn't sure what to expect. I didn't read any descriptions just downloaded the three book bundle and I am so glad that I did. Since I'm already halfway through the Second book in the series.

This First book had so much I never expected. I love reading about Omegas, mpreg, si

This is a new a twist to shifter romance and a new author for me. Kai is not happy he has to pick a mate from a line of omegas life for him as he knows it is over but the fates have a better plan for him. Luca is on display again and this time he knows his mate is in the room what he thinks will be the happiest time for him gets even better when he sees who he will spend the rest of his life with. Not everyone is happy with the couple king who is jackass I'm mean really you will not like him are ...more

More like 2.5, I was not impressed with the world building since it seems obvious to me that the author is pointing out that this is an alternate universe. Other authors that have done this in the omegaverse have noted that the previous civilization has either failed, or that it still exists beside the shifter world but doesn't really interact with it. This author seems to try to straddle that line and it leads to some stutters in understanding for me. Aren't selkies an Irish legend? Then why ar ...more

This is the first book of five in this exciting mpreg series from JJ Masters. In this installment we are introduced to the royal family and meet all the of the brothers, but it is the eldest that is choosing his mate to be bonded with and get married in this book. He can smell him as soon as he walks into the the great room but he takes his time walking up to his fsther, the King. The attraction between these two is off the charts which is great because they are dated to be together and produce ...more

I love Omegaverse, so I purchsed this series to listen to and enjoy. It is an original storyline, not dark but started out serious, with that Alpha-hole of a father. But these two MCs are fated mates, who love each other, so it was ‘seal’-ed from jump, their budding relationship. And then the story really took off, with Lucas being an insatiable Omega and his Alpha eager to please. The first heat was hilarious! And when the deed was finally done, Lucas’ pregnancy hormones made for an unforgettab ...more

Wonderful Start to a Fantastic Series!

This is the first book of J.J. Masters and the first MPreg book I’ve read and boy was it great! It won’t be the last one either! I love shifter romances and now I found a new sub-genra to read! This was Kia and Luca’s story. They were fated mates and had to fight Kia’s father the King to stay together. This was a beautiful love story full of steamy sexiness! I loved it!

I’m usually not into shape shifter stories, I can handle the M/M story line but this is the first book to ever “Catch” my attention. At first I thought it’s ok, but not something I would re-read, but quickly realized I couldn’t stop reading. With the turn of every page, I found myself asking questions, and continuing on with the book to appease my curiosity.

It’s not a Real-Life story by any means, but it’s intriguing all the same. Now I find myself reading the rest of the series, because I need

This is the first book in The Royal Alphas Series. A wonderful book the writing was good. The plot was entertaining and it was steady throughout the book. I found the story and characters likeable. The characters were developed and thought out. Kai and Luca are the MC’s of this book and fated mates. There was humor, princes, traditions, brothers, swimming, lots of sex, doctors and more in this book. I would’ve like more story with all the sex.

I really enjoyed this one and the Selkie aspect made it that much more appealing and refreshing.

Kai and Lucas had an amazing connection which grew stronger despite the pressure the King put on them.

The Royal Princes were a fun bunch and I enjoyed their bantering and teasing.

The King and his horrible assistant - don’t even get me started on these two - suffice to say I was imagining them suffering in very horrible ways starting which a good kick in the nuts.

Fantastic shifter book and wouldn’t

This was my first book written by J J Masters and I enjoyed every page of it.! The strong alpha prince Kai finds a sweet, passionate love with the perfect omega for him Luca. In a world steeped in strict rules and royal obligations, they create their own path and fight for the love they deserve. They are a couple you cannot help but root for. This book will give you something to smile about, laugh about, rage about, and will even tug at your heartstrings a bit. I cannot wait to get to read more ...more

Alpha please!

John Solo’s voice is as smooth a butter!

This is my first read from J.J. Masters and I can’t wait to read more!

Price Kai has every trait you think an alpha would , but also that chewy inside when it comes to his Omega.
Luca is soft and sassy!
Though the pair goes through their own trials and tribulations they know that, to get through the time limit and requirements the king has put in place, they will only do it together and holding each other tight.

This is the first of many books I plan on reading by J.J. Masters. Kai and Luca make the perfect mates. Never in my life have I wanted to be an Omega as I have with this story! From Kai's barbaric father to his protective brothers' every character reveals a glimpse of themselves. I am very much looking forward to reading Adrian's story next!

This is the first book I've read by this author and but it certainly won't be the last. I loved Kai and Luca together and was rooting for them the whole time. I also enjoyed that this was a shifter form I have not yet read as most are bears, wolves, and dragons. It was nice to explore that realm. There was a cast of characters who were all well written. I'm excited for the next book in the series.

Prince Kai, the oldest of the King’s sons and heir to the throne. He finds his omega in Luca but he comes with secrets, that could make the Kind send him away. But Kai is a generous prince, respectful and quite the romantic. They have to go through a lot, especially trying to comply with the aweful Selkie king. The journey was quite sweet and the sexy scenes plentiful. My first Selkie story and I enjoyed it very much.
