I'm so happy I FINISHED this book! Had it not been a NetGalley ARC, I would have DNF'd it.

Why? You ask. Well, there are a few reasons. Let's begin, shall we?

First, the writing was uneven. It went from purple prose to very simplistic prose. It was like writing style whiplash. The problem is that I like neither of the two kinds.

Second, the author threw in tertiary POV's later in the book. Often for just one chapter. Find another way to show us the story instead of opening up another character's he

A Joyfully Jay review.

3.75 stars


The Empires of Luxor City is really a romance involving two couples, Dom and Lin and then Atsadi and Jimena. Set in an Omegaverse, there’s all the typical Alpha/Omega dynamics and knotting, but no shifting or mpreg. Dom is basically a mob boss, but he has a bit of class and he’s striving to make changes to the old system. He doesn’t mind using violence and he’s far from innocent, but his devotion to Lin is sweet. The romance between Dom and Lin isn’t quite insta-

3.5 HEARTS--Reading books and me haven't been seeing eye to eye lately. I've been devouring fan fiction in my free time. I've tried a good number of books in the interim but nothing stuck.

The Empires of Luxor by debut (published) author Sasha Hope however was one to finally catch and hold my attention. the blurb definitely is a SRAL magnet = ABO + mafia! Plus, the author is a fan fic writer so, it was a win-win-win on all fronts for me.

Overall, Empires is a solid story. We are thrown into a futu

(I got this book in exchange for an honest review)

First I have to say how surprised I am about how much I loved this story. All I've read before I asked for it was that it's an Alpha/Beta/Omega story and that it's an m/m story. Didn't know anything else but I was interested so I gave it a try. Turns out, I've really enjoyed it. I couldn't put it down. I just wanted to keep reading. This is why I give it a 5 stars because everyone who knows me, knows how long I usually take with novels. So, when

So, I started reading this cute alpha/omega story, you know? Tough, mafia boss alpha who saves a pretty omega, helps him with his addiction and keeps him in his house. With some history and detailed descriptions of Luxor City and its empires mixed within, the story flowed easily and engrossing. I was starting to get a good grip of who Dom and Lin are and I was excited for their growing connection. I was relaxed and smiling, and then...

...BAM! Because Jimena Jaraji came into play with a bang, lit

Dom Wesa is a new alpha when he discovers Lin.... Lin is an addict being beaten by a drug dealer. Fortunately for Lin this happens on Dom's turf. What happens next surprises Lin (when he's finally awake and are). Dom takes Lin in and helps him to detox. During their brief time together, they begin to get to know one another and are certainly attracted.

Dom is dealing with the pressures of his life. He has a strained relationship with his family, an interloper back in his territory and still... ev

In general, I liked the story, but there were a few things that prevent me from giving it a higher rating. One that is mostly stylistic is the inclusion of other character's POVs toward the end of the book for only a chapter each. I sort of understand why it was done in some cases, but not all. That's just something I don't like personally, though. The writing was overall decent, though the quality definitely bounced around a bit.. There were some basic plot inconsistencies that irritated me, bu ...more

The Empires of Luxor City by Sasha Hope was definitely a surprise to me because I expected an Alpha wolf story. My mistake here but it was a pleasure surprise to know that it is a LGBTQ story set in an Omegaverse! I liked Lin and Dom's relationship, however, I did expected more from Lin's backstory... Dom made it such a big deal at the beginning of the story that I thought something more will come up.

I received an eARC copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This

This is a unique ABO due to the AU it's set it. It's near futuristic and everything is controlled by various mafia families. Lin is a lost omega that is struggling with addiction and Dom is the savior that sweeps him out of the dark and into the golden tinted light. But while Dom's world is full of luxury, it's also dangerous and Dom will have to fight if he wants to keep Lin safe. There's very little relationship drama but good heat and a sweet HEA, so why not give it a chance? ...more

The Empires of Luxor is amazingly hot. A slow burn stoking the coals to a raging bonfire. I promise it's worth the wait. I can't decide if I like Lin or Dom more, but their chemistry is undeniable, in more ways than one. You won't want to pass up this heart-racing dramatic story. ...more

A very well-written story with engaging characters and a page-turning storyline. I was drawn in from the very beginning and found myself reading it straight through in one sitting.

This was very good! I loved how different it was, it was refreshing. I loved Dom and Lin, and Dom’s brother! So happy to see both omegas got a happy ending.

This is one of those books that grew on me. I wasn't sure about it in the beginning, but the more I read, the more I liked both Dom and Lin.

Beyond the growing attraction between Dom and Lin, there was a growing tension between the northern, central and southern empires. Peace between these empires was tenuous with little trust between them. That tension grew even stronger when an old threat made an appearance, one that Dom had personal reasons for wanting to eliminate. Nothing is ever exactly as
