Pavlova Passion by Colbie Dunbar

'This was the twenty-first century and omegas had as much power, desire and agency as alphas.'

From the blurb:

It’ll be a piece of cake.

Alpha Ambrose is supposed to be out of town for the weekend, but his plans fall through. Instead, a colleague asks him to take his place at the Bachelor Cake Auction. Ambrose protests because he can’t cook, but his friend provides the baked goodie—a pavlova of meringue slathered with cream and tropical fruit—saying no one will find out he can’t boil water.

Omega Leyland and a friend’s vacation is ruined when a computer glitch grounds their plane and postpones their trip for a week. There’s more bad news when his friend can’t change his vacation days. Though he’s not in the mood to celebrate, Leyland attends the Bake Sale Auction because the money raised is for a children’s wing at the local hospital.

After a winning bid and confusion about the date package Ambrose is supposed to have arranged, Leyland takes charge and suggests the alpha accompany him on his tropical vacation because his friend can’t make it. They’ll have separate rooms, of course, because they’ll be staying in a villa.

The omega describes a holiday filled with warm sunny days on the beach, balmy nights outdoors eating seafood delicacies, along with midnight swims in their private pool, set against a backdrop of tropical scents and the soft lapping of ocean waves.

How can Ambrose refuse?

Pavlova Passion is the fourth book in the Bake Sale Bachelors Season Four series. It features an alpha who rarely makes spur-of-the-moment decisions,an omega who isn’t content to sit still,eccentric guests at the resort who’ll entertain you with their antics, an adorable baby, and a summer vacation filled with tropical flowers, passion, and love.

Laora's Review:

Ambrose and Leyland are such strong characters. Not adhering to the classic Alpha/ Omega stereotypes, they are just humans living their best life. I particularly like how they influenced the other to do things differently than they are used to. Take a chance, stay put, grab opportunities and enjoy. And of course, this is an Mpreg story, so we meet Fleur after a more prolonged labor scene.

I really enjoyed this story which is told from both Ambrose and Leyland, their POV and is part of the 'Bake Sale' series but can be read as a standalone.  It has a natural flow which does not let you put the book down. Such a Joy.
