His first crush, seven years later ~ Read an #excerpt from HIS OMEGA ON STAGE #CountdownToReleaseDay #Romance #MPreg #PNR

Hello and welcome back to my Countdown to Release Day!

HIS OMEGA ON STAGE releases November 30, and I'm sharing something related to the book with you each day on my blog. I've started with excerpts, and if you missed the first two, you can find them here and here. I have a couple other things planned as well. Saturday is my Weekend Writing Warriors post, where I'll share a snippet from further into the book. And on release day, there will be a special deal you're not going to want to miss out on!

So, I'll continue today with the beginning of chapter two. Enjoy!

Chapter Two

It was him. It was really him. I let out a squeal then rolled my eyes at myself, thankful no one was in the elevator with me. I was acting like I did in high school when I saw my crush. I was seven years older, and still freaking out over him on the eve before one of the most important days of my life.

When the doors opened, I exited the elevator and headed to the artists’ lounge, unable to stop the skip in my step. Why was I more excited about seeing him than my album about to drop? It wasn’t as if he knew who I was. I’d made sure of that, wearing my hat and mask in the record store. I hadn’t wanted to be recognized by my fans. Yet, he was one person I would love to reveal my identity to. My true self. Not my stage name. Though, I doubted he’d know me anyway. In high school, I’d stood in awe, like a statue, as he passed me in the halls. I got excited if he even looked in my general direction. Never got up the courage to say a word to him though. Not once. Had I not been in disguise, I still would have been just some younger omega who shopped in the store where he worked.

In the lounge, I lay across the long white leather couch, disappointed in how I’d reacted to seeing Jun again. First, I’d panicked when I realized who was talking to me. Then I’d made up some story about a sister I didn’t have. A brother, yes. One the same age as Jun. One who knew I’d had a crush on the alpha loner and told me to stay away from him.

But I no longer spoke to that brother or my parents. They hadn’t accepted that I wanted to be a singer, wanted me to play a sport instead, “get a scholarship” that way, and “make something of yourself.” My own dreams hadn’t mattered to them. But I wasn’t like them to begin with. I was a leopard cat shifter instead of an actual leopard. My brother joked I was adopted. I believed him for most of my life even though my parents denied it. And they still expected me to be like them and follow their dreams for me. So, I left home the day after I graduated high school, getting a job at a fast-food joint for minimum wage and sleeping on the couch of a former classmate who’d moved to a downtown apartment the year before. It had been a rough few months living there, and my parents had never tried to look for me. But I remained focused on the auditions coming up at Adan Records. It was my dream to get signed to the company, go on tours, sing for crowds around the world. And it was all about to come true. My debut album, Stay, would release tomorrow. So, why did seeing Jun make me feel so small, like I was some shy kid again? Why had I been brave enough to stand in front of a bunch of industry professionals to sing, but I couldn’t say a simple hello to my crush? And I still got so flustered around him. I was hopeless when it came to those kinds of feelings. Didn’t know if I’d ever be brave enough to confess to him, or anyone else I might have feelings for in the future.

Shifter Towers book four

For leopard cat shifter, Jun, being the rogue alpha in high school hadn’t helped him as an adult. Though he sometimes believed he was ready to find a mate, past experiences taught him that those he loves eventually leave him. So, he protects his heart by seeing omegas looking for nothing more than a one-night stand. Until he runs into someone from his past.

As the first omega signed to Adan Records, AI is anxious for the release of his debut album. Being a leopard cat shifter instead of an actual leopard like the rest of his family has always made him feel small and insignificant. But now he’s about to shine bright in front of the world, all on his own, without an alpha by his side. He doesn’t need one, and definitely doesn’t have time for one. Though when he runs into someone from his past who knows him as Ash, he wants to give this alpha all of his attention.

On Stage
But with all the problems that fame brings, will Ash be able to make a relationship work? Will Jun fight for the omega he’s sure is his fated mate? Or will they let each other slip away, believing what they have isn’t enough?
