Omega, Suppressed
Moving from the city to a small town, Shailyn knew things would be different, but she didn't realize how difficult it would be. When the town leader makes it obvious he does not agree with omegas using heat suppressants, and his son decides to cancel her order for more, she's left with no choice but to make a trip back to the city to get some before it's too late. Alone. She wouldn't let their outdated views suppress her right to choose. This is a slow burn, omegaverse novella. There are detailed scenes and situations that may make some readers uncomfortable.

    liked this story. girl moving to a new small town from the city. while she finds there are some pros to moving to this smaller town she is finding there are also a few draw backs to this town. the Alphas want things more traditional then the cities and the omegas have little if any choice. Shailyn is determined she is gonna do something about it to help the other omegas in this town.I wish the story had been a little longer to get more of the back story on a few of the characters and i would liked this story. girl moving to a new small town from the city. while she finds there are some pros to moving to this smaller town she is finding there are also a few draw backs to this town. the Alphas want things more traditional then the cities and the omegas have little if any choice.

It features a spunky Omega heroine and an Alpha hero whose actions appear to thwart her at every turn. Their journey together is a bumpy one but I certainly enjoyed the ride.Whilst Shailyn and her family immerse themselves in the peace and tranquillity of the small town they have relocated to, it is not long before her use of heat suppressants brings her into conflict with the town leader and his son, one of the town’s guards. Shailyn is furious when Luke cancels her order for the drugs – she will not have her own life and that of other women in the town dictated to by Omega hormones and overbearing Alphas, despite her dynamic! She embarks on a trip back to the city to procure the medication she needs for herself and others.Can Luke save Shailyn from any danger she may encounter on her trip back to the city for more of her drugs? Also despite their mutual attraction how can they come together as equals when Luke is a dominant Alpha by nature and Shailyn is an Omega determined to live life on her terms?I loved the character of Shailyn, an outspoken, if a little naïve, young woman who makes friends easily and wants to right the wrongs she sees. As for Luke, he is a character I warmed to as the read progresses - the romance between them is not instantaneous by any means and I thoroughly enjoyed the lively banter and sexual tension between them, heightened by the clash of wills.Recommended for fans of Omegaverse stories or readers looking for a small town, new adult read with a difference.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Super quick, fun readInteresting spin on Omegaverse with an omega heroine who tries to bring progressive city ways to a back-water village. I'd have liked more insight to the hero and stronger world-building but I understand the author had a word-limit. Maybe next time!

    I haven't read a ton of omegaverse but there is theme present in more than a few, a plot thread that usually unfolds in a manner that is somewhat predictable. Leann Ryans put a nice twist on it, taking me by surprise. Shailyn comes from the city, moving to a small town with her parents to open a bakery. Taking suppressants is common in the city, helping omegas go about their lives without fear of their bodies.

Taking suppressants is common in the city, helping omegas go about their lives without fear of their bodies. The biology of alphas and omegas put omegas in such a vulnerable position and Shailyn has no interest in returning to that. So when the town elder and his alpha son Luke discover this practice, it is a huge source of friction. Shailyn is a bit of a hothead which was nice to see since omegas are mostly subservient or at least in no position to express their anger. Luke comes across at first as just another arrogant alpha who knows what is best for an omega. They both have some growth and maturing to do and I was very pleased with the outcome. I do hope this author continues this series, I would love to see some other stories take place in this small town.

    Omega Suppressed is an 18+ story that contains a lot of sexual talk, an attempted sexual assault, and an explicit sex scene.I can tell this is an interesting world that Leann Ryans has created. I am new to it and don't know all the ins and outs. I wanted more information about why the omegas were so sought after. What are these people? Shifters? Aliens? What makes a person an alpha, beta, or omega. With this being a standalone it needed more exposition.

Telling Shai that she needs to just let her body do what it's supposed to and let an alpha claim her sounded a lot like he was advocating rape. But somehow that's ok because that's what omegas are for. Having Shai suddenly go into heat while she's by Luke and begging him to claim her seemed so against character that it lost me. It was like everything she was fighting for just got chucked out the window. Overall I was dissatisfied with this story. It could be better with some reworking.

    This story would have been better-served as a longer length work. It's too short to allow enough character development to make it satisfying. This is pretty standard Omegaverse fare: Omega wants freedom, Alpha is against it, Omega goes TSTL to try and acquire that freedom and Bad Alphas happen...and that just cements her fate because Biology intervenes. (Which means no real freedom of choice happened. Thus is the fate of many an Omega.)

Roughly When is indiscernible—there are trucks, gas stations, bottled water...but also healers and blacksmiths in this world. There did not seem to be any phones or similar communications technology. No mention of TV or similar devices. Honestly, it was just confusing and distracted from the story.I had been pretty interested in where the story had potential to go the first half of the novella, but the wrap-up felt unsatisfying.

    I enjoyed this short story. It was well written, with well constructed sentences and few if any typos. The world building of this story was interesting, with the world being close but not quite like our contemporary world. The characterization in this story was a little uneven, with the heroine being a vibrant individual and the character of the hero doing a complete abrupt flip from being a terrible person to being a good man.

This novel ends on a Happy Ever After ending, but I personally didn’t like that the heroine ended up with the hero. I didn’t believe in his change of heart and thought she could have done much better. Part of that could be a function of how short the story was. There was plenty of excitement and action in this story, with the plot moving quickly and several villians being vanquished. I would recommend this to fans of m/f omegaverse romances.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

In this story, Omega Shailyn's family moves to a small town from the big city. There she meets Alpha Draven and the two basically starts off on the wrong foot. There's sexual interest but due to their different beliefs regarding Omegas, they clash every time they interact with one another. Enjoyed every moment of this story."

    I am happy to have read this book for the author. I was given a free copy for my review, but I have not been influenced in my rating in any way.

Animalistic behavior usually follows the whole the strong male has the pick of the female he most desires, and she really doesn't have a choice.

Taking on an older, violent alpha shows the reader the depth of her desire to initiate fundamental change in their community. I enjoyed this book, and it flowed very well and was easy to read.

The main characters are inclined to be quite strong-willed individuals & they continue to develop throughout the story-line.

    WOW THIS WAS A QUICKIE OMEGAVERSE STORY.IT WAS JUST A SKIM OFF THE TOP, NOTHING TO RAVE ABOUT.HEROINE comes into a new small town, her family having left the city. She first meets our Alpha and finds him obnoxious because he doesn't approve of her taking heat suppressants. Half of the story was just focused on her new life and making a new friend, after that it only takes one heat and then the story ends. MEH. This wasn't even that good. I only read it for the sex. Period.

    I liked this quick little read. It is dystopian Omegaverse but still feels kinda modern. And it is funny how even in this book you see the difference from city to country on how people feel about things. I liked both MC's as well. They are both very likeable characters. My only complaint is I wish the book had been longer! This author is one of my favorites and I love her work. So I wish there had been more!

    Fantastic Read. Great Novella, Shai's family has moved to a backwards town where omegas are treated as lower class citizens. Not used to this way of life, she subtly tried to help the other Omegas when the town elders son tries to stop her - trouble ensues. What is a girl to do?This is a lovely short story. I would love to hear more about Mindy and her story and how she is coping with her Omega status. All in all a really good read.

    I’m in love with this authors writing... and when I found out she was writing another book I had to have it. Is this a HEA... no... but that’s okay with me. The fact that omegas in the new town are mistreated... reminds me of how woman are mistreated. And though I’m not thrilled... cause I’m waiting for MORE....

    Unfortunately I found the character development in this story lacking. Both the female and male MCs somehow have changes in their opinions that are completely incomprehensible with how the characters are described before, which is not something I enjoy overly much... There is a mention of a limited word count in the author`s note which I guess is the main reason for that. However apart from that I liked the world building and it was all in all a satisfactory, short read. Unfortunately I found the character development in this story lacking.

    .....Sweet Omegaverse Story...This book has a homey small town sensational romance notion. Despite being a novella length, the pace of the story is perfect. There is enough background on the Alpha-Omega. This a very good omegaverse (in a lighter shade) with absolute HEA. I devour it in one go. The end will make you smile.

    Very, very disappointed. I usually like this author and her omegaverse works but this is just bad. As if another person was writing it. First of all, this isn't even a romance or sex novella. The real action happens in last 10 pages. Nothing until then. Not even little suspense. Hero is a big jerk and end is unsatisfactory. Sorry but this doesn't deserve more than 1 star

    HorribleIf I could give this book a negative I would. The whole story line shows a struggle between alphas and omegas. How horrible and abusive Alphas are. *Spoiler* the middle shows abusive alphas. Who get what they want in the end. The guy stops her pills. She goes into heat. They have sex/mate. Happily ever after. Complete bullshit.
