Summer Roberts is a new-to-me narrator, but I’ve definitely become a fan. Even with two female POVs, since Omega is told first in Kyrie’s POV, then in Layla’s, Summer Roberts was able to make their voices distinct and unique, and I could tell whose POV it was just by her narration. She did a fantastic job narrating Omega, which is now my favorite of the Alpha series. I wasn’t the biggest fan of Kyrie and Roth, so when the story switched over to Layla and Harris, I really started enjoying this audiobook. If you’re a fan of the series, you won’t want to miss Layla and Harris’s story – their heart-pounding, intense, crazy hot story was so much fun to listen to.
Vitaly Karahalios is out for revenge for his daughter’s death, so Kyrie and Roth are out in hiding in the middle of nowhere on a boat, and they’ve take Kyrie’s best friend Layla with them for her protection. Harris is basically Roth’s bodyguard, there to protect the three of them, and there’s some delicious tension going on between him and Layla. I’ve always been intrigued by Harris in the previous books. He’s stoic, intense, quiet – so I loved that he actually gets his own romance with Layla of all people, the dirty-mouthed, sassy, independent, hilarious woman who is his opposite in every way.
I would’ve loved if Omega had solely been Layla and Harris’s story, because I really loved everything about them. They’re the definition of ‘opposites attract,’ they’re amazing and funny together, the chemistry between them is on fire, and I loved how they opened up to one another, when usually they’re the kind of people who keep things close to themselves. And they are crazy hot together! Jasinda Wilder knows how to write hot, dirty scenes, though I will admit that there might have been too much sex in Omega.
There’s also some great suspense and action in Omega, and the best part about it is Layla’s hilarious take on the craziness that’s happening around her. She’s a sarcastic girl, and I found myself cracking up sometimes at the inappropriate jokes she’d make.
If you’re looking for something hot, sexy, action-y, and fun, I would definitely recommend the Omega audiobook. Summer Roberts is a great narrator, and I’d definitely listen to another audiobook she narrates. Since Omega is book 3 in the Alpha series, you would need to read the first two books in the series, but Layla and Harris’s romance is definitely worth it. I found myself hooked onto their story, which I wasn’t expecting. It’s a great conclusion to the series – Kyrie and Roth’s story wraps up nicely, and Layla and Harris have their own perfect ending.
