Unarmed (Knitting Club #1) by Austin Bates


He’s home to recover, not fall for a younger man …

Blaze’s time in the military unraveled him, but now he’s knitting himself back together one stitch at a time. He needs to focus on recovery, not the young omega he finds himself doting over.

Logan is back home to lick his wounds, not the hot older alpha who just happens to be his landlady’s grandson. He can see the cracks in Blaze’s armor, and he wants to squeeze his way in, but the ex-soldier has more defenses than a military base.

Until an ill-timed heat changes everything …

Blaze’s demons are a tangled mess he may never fully recover from. Can he really expect an omega who could have anyone to settle for him? Or is the only way to protect Logan to let him go?

My Rating - 4.5 Stars!

Austin Bates' Unarmed is the first book in the Knitting Club mpreg series. And yes, it actually revolves around a knitting club. I love it. The idea is great and the execution even better. 

Blaze is a man drowning in his PTSD nightmare since leaving the military. Meanwhile Logan is back in town after being cheated on by his ex. Add in two meddling grandmothers and let the fun begin.

The way they come together is delightful. Their developing feelings are wonderful, with sizzling chemistry.

Their story has some heat, emotions, and humor. It's a mix of struggles and healing. The use of knitting to help relieve stress is spectacular and the author does a great job with this aspect.

The writing is fun and fluid with interesting characters. The side characters are intriguing and add immensely to the storyline.

The PTSD is written in a careful manner, illustrating the power one's past pain has on their lives. Blaze is clearly shown to be living in the shadows of his former life. 

Unarmed is sweet and tender, with a fantastic ending. This Austin Bates omegaverse story is perfect when you're in the mood for a feel-good romance. I am definitely looking forward to the rest of the series.
