Aiden was an Omega who needed a job doing what he loved. He never imagined he’d meet his fated mate during the interview. He was ready to bond right away, but something stopped his Alpha from claiming him. Aiden’s patience held strong, but being near his mate every day without bonding threatened to drive him insane.

Brandon owned a successful company, and he wanted to share that success with his mate and their child. But the continued thefts troubled him and the last thing he wanted to do was drag his new mate into any danger.

Danger found them anyway.

This is a 28K non-shifter Mpreg novella featuring a sweet romance, a HEA, and no cliffhanger

This is the first book in the Direction series. It was a good read. It is not a long drawn out read so that was good as well.

Aiden is an omega. He is one of those kinda awkward, nerdy omegas that spends most of his time creating codes then he does hanging out. So when around new people he is awkward and never knows really what to say. He does have his close group of friends that he plays paintball with but other then that he spends his time with his cat and computer.

When he gets a job interview to do computer work for them, he cannot wait. What he did not expect is to walk into the interview and find his fated mate. What was even more unexpected is not only does Brandon own the company but he does not immediately try to claim Aiden. So of course Aiden is extremely confused.

Brandon knows that Aiden is his fated mate and he is excited to have found him but it could not have come at a worse time. Brandon knows someone is stealing from his company and he needs to figure out who it is first before bringing Aiden into the mix.

When still nothing has panned out a few weeks later, Brandon can no longer wait to claim Aiden, nor does he want to. Neither does Aiden.

Now Aiden has been brought more into the mix of things and the thefts have increased, as well as the danger. Can Aiden and Brandon figure out who is behind it all or will they figure it out too late?

This was a good read!! I enjoyed it. Though it is not an extremely long read, it was still an informative read with just enough suspense and danger. Enjoyed this read.

Advanced Review Copy

Galley copy of Up To Code (Directions #1) provided by Jena Wade in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time.

I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books.

Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
