Reckless Abandon

He could get used to spending time like this, of having dates and laughing, of coming back to one of their flats and kissing for as long as they wanted.

Publisher’s Synopsis:
With Valentine’s Day approaching, Oliver is determined to find a date so he won’t have to spend the holiday alone. The only problem is that, so far, he’s had zero luck. He’s also been pining over his Alpha neighbour for a long time, but he has seen him courting an Omega and knows there is no chance of them being together.

When the Alpha’s profile comes up in a dating website and they are matched, Oliver is determined to figure out why the Alpha is cheating on his Omega and makes a plan to expose his lies. After they agree on having a first date, Oliver is mortified to discover Sebastian is single and the Omega he was with is his brother.

Sebastian is not deterred by the misunderstanding and proposes they go on another date. Oliver, a romantic at heart, readily agrees, but is now completely terrified of making another mistake. He doesn’t want to ruin any chances they might have of working out before Valentine’s Day.

As they begin to learn more about each other and the holiday approaches, they must trust each other to navigate through their insecurities. Will they be able to sort themselves out in time for Valentine’s?

Point of view:
3rd person. Mostly from Oliver’s perspective, but there are a few sections from Sebastian’s.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
This is a cute omegaverse stand alone short story by Fredrick Flynn.

Poor Oliver has been unlucky in love, including crushing on his mated older neighbor Sebastian. I was worried at first, but I liked how Flynn handled Oliver thinking that Sebastian had an omega he was cheating on. Once these two get over their initial hurdles, it’s such a sweet relationship. For such a short we’re still treated to several dates and a satisfying HFN.

My Favorite Quotes

“something about the idea of being with an older Alpha made him feel weak in the knees”

“He could get used to spending time like this, of having dates and laughing, of coming back to one of their flats and kissing for as long as they wanted.”

“He figured that it didn’t matter what he called it, not really, because the feeling was so strong and it grew with every moment they spent together.”
