✱✱Book Review✱✱ Sacrifice by Rhea Watson


When I graduated from the Omega Academy, I had options.

Sure, as a Class-B Fertile, I’d never get top dollar from our local alpha packs, but I was the next best option after all the Class-A omegas were claimed.

Until someone 
else let Dad name his price.

As an omega, I always expected to be bought and sold—but not like this.

Not to a shifter breeding facility.

The men in charge want to save the tigers. With their wilder halves almost extinct, tiger shifters aren’t far behind, and the fate of their species is in my hands.


It’s absurd. It’s insulting.

But it’s my new reality.

A reality I suffer with two unbonded alpha tiger shifters who hate sharing territory—but who hate being treated like animals even more. While Luther is suspicious of me from the start, Oryn quickly takes me under his wing and shares the key to our survival.

No touching.

No mating.

No knotting.

Abstinence is resistance.

It’s worked for them before, but I’m the first omega ever forced into heat and thrown to the beasts. After years of refusing to breed with anyone, I’m the perfumed pawn sent to break these two kings.

So, we fight.

We resist.

But our captors have all the power, and no matter how hard we ignore the call, it’s only a matter of time before instinct takes over…

And we surrender to the roles we were born to play.

Sacrifice is a dark shifter omegaverse romance set in the Extinction Omegaverse world. Here, you’ll find such tropes as Hurt/Comfort, Found Family, Us against the World, and Forced Proximity. This is an MFM romance, which means two heroes, one heroine, no love triangle.

Please Note: The overall series is not “dark”, but Sacrifice has themes and scenarios leveled against the MCs that may be triggering to some readers.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Sacrifice is so perfectly titled, and that cover is absolutely fabulous. I tend to jot down notes as I read, and I refer back to them as I write the review. Rhea Watson changed my routine. I had my little notepad handy, but when I looked up after reading the last page, I had exactly one note: Tigers! Yay! That's it. I barely even looked away from my Kindle once I started reading. My intention was to make this my weekend read. Ha! It was my Saturday read. I could not put this one down. Now, that isn't an unusual thing for me with this author. Everything she does is sure to be a page-turner, but this book blew me away. It's dark and even disturbing at times, and it's intense. And somehow, in the midst of everything these characters are put through, there's loyalty, love, and hope. I was seriously starting to worry that Rhea Watson was going to write herself into a corner on this one, but of course, there's an answer that fits the story and the characters. Characters I couldn't get enough of. Sacrifice can be read as a standalone, but once you've explored the fascinating world Watson has created, I expect you'll be like me - anxiously waiting for whatever comes next for Extinction Omegaverse.
