The Alien’s Kidnapped Omega (The Alien’s Omega #1) by Sienna Sway

This might not be a five-star, but it was awesome none the less.

It was exactly what I needed right now. Fast-paced, kind of short, and a romance that wasn’t entirely as predictable as it could have been.
Sure, it was only low to medium on the steam scale, but with the generally juicy storyline, the spice was enough.

I just love the I’m-an-omega-but-didn’t-know-it-trope. And combined with an abduction and a forced (but not quite unwanted) bonding to a big hunk of an alien… Well. It hit all my spots.

Synopsis: Alex, the human omega, is tasked to establish contact with the dominant alien race of the planet Mukhana. But on his first visit, one of the big aliens sniffs him out (literally) as an omega and decides to “save” him. That’s how Alex finds himself mated off to the intimidating but sexy as heck Saar. Only Alex knows that the humans won’t accept one of their own being kidnapped, he knows they will retaliate. The thought of leaving Saar is painful, but Alex can’t stand the thought of the Nassa people getting hurt because of him.

Since the story was short, there wasn’t much space for world-building. But it was enough to set the scene, and what was revealed was interesting. The take on omega-alpha pairings was not exactly unique but it had a fresh spin that wasn’t simply the old fated-mates thing. I liked it, and its implications for the alien society as a whole. It was refreshing to read.

This is definitely a guilty pleasure read and I enjoyed it immensely. So much in fact that I pre-ordered the second book in the series which won’t be released until December. The blurb isn’t even available yet put that didn’t stop me. So, again, even if it’s not a 5-star it’s still a very, very delicious story.

Highly recommend.


I'm a Swedish book nerd reading mostly steamy English romance novels. And since there is so much good stuff out there, and so much shitty stuff too. I just want to give credit where it's due (and diss the rest).
