Three Ways to Destiny

An MMM Shifter MPREG Romance

by Aspen Grey

Two jealous alphas, one omega. Very wrong, or very right?

Arthur’s job as private security is a breeze. As an ex-Navy Seal there’s no situation he can’t handle—that is, until he catches his boyfriend with another man. Convinced true love is not for him, he heads to The White Swallow bar for some action. Instead, he catches a scent that turns his world upside down.

Sid should be complete, but he’s not. He’s his own boss, runs a successful taco stand, but success is nothing without a good mate by your side! He never expected to find love at The White Swallow (who does?) and is floored when he smells his fated-mate. There’s just one problem; the beautiful boy already has a man!

Two fated-mates? 

Ollie can’t believe what’s happening. He was barely scraping by, working and living at The White Swallow, when he smelled Arthur. There was no doubt in his mind the alpha was his fated-mate. They spent a mind-blowing night together, and Ollie knew he was the one—that is, until he met Sid.

The scents don’t lie.

Both of the Adonis alphas are meant for Ollie, but how can that be? Two alphas for one omega? To make matters worse, the boys hate each other and both want Ollie for themselves.

Will the alphas be able to put aside the differences and learn to share? Or will their jealousy get the best of them and ruin the rest of their lives?

Three Ways to Destiny can be read as a standalone, but contains characters from the rest of the SoCal Cuties. Devour them all for maximum enjoyment! What do you get when you combine two cups of romance, a cup and a half of knotty spice, a half cup of drama, three tablespoons of drama and a HEA to top it all off? A recipe that will make your mouth water. Indulge!

The White Swallow, I thought as I parked the truck and got out. It was only a ten-minute walk away, at most, so I headed out, my mind spinning with thoughts of new taco recipes, visions of my future and dreams of love.

“You’re not gonna find it here,” I muttered to myself as the bar came into view. From the looks of things, it was really hopping inside, but as I grew closer and picked up the scents from within, I could tell it wasn’t going to be a very successful night in terms of finding love.

The place was swimming with alphas, and by the sounds from within, they were celebrating something. Probably a birthday party, or maybe a game was on, or maybe a bachelor party. Either way, the only omegas inside would be either taken, or so swarmed with attention that it would be a pissing contest over who would get to take them home, and I wasn’t interested in that.


“Oh, well,” I shrugged as I stepped past the bored-looking security alpha and made my way inside. “Have a beer and head home I guess.”

I made my way to the bar, where an old alpha was waiting. He nodded.

“Hey there, young snapper,” he said like some character out of an old Western film. “What can I do ya for?”

“Just a beer,” I told him.

“What kinda beer?”

“Whatever you think’s good and doesn’t cost more than a bad date.”

“Gotcha,” he smiled. “Why don’t you have a seat and I’ll get the boy to bring one out for you?”

“Sounds like a plan,” I replied. I turned and gestured to the gaggle of grinning alphas all drunk and laughing around a table at the center of the room. “What’s all this?”

“Bachelor party.”

I nodded. “I figured.”

As I took a seat at a high-top in the corner of the room and waited for my beer, I watched the wild crew and wondered what it would be like to be one of them, wild and carefree, filled with lust for any omega with a nice ass. It was probably a pretty easy existence, but that wasn’t what I was looking for. I wanted meaning. Commitment. Someone I could rely on and share my life with.

“Relax, Sid,” I grumbled as the door to the back opened. “It’s a fucking bar. You’re not gonna find that here.”

But then, something unexpected happened. No, something practically impossible happened. As my eyes spied who must have been “the boy” the old man had referred to, coming out from the back with my beer on a tray, I caught his scent like I’d caught a fly ball into the outfield.

It cut through the rest of the smells of the bar like a snake slithering through the tall grass, straight into my nostrils with the force of a heavyweight boxer’s punch.

Warm banana cream

The scent instantly tantalized me, gripped me and set my senses on fire. I felt my dick start to harden, but also my heart begin to soar as though I’d just met a long lost friend who I hadn’t seen in years.

The world seemed to brighten, the colors suddenly beginning to pop, and everything seemed to slow down as the beautiful boy walked towards me, his messy blond hair splayed out at all angles like straw blowing in the wind, and his bright blue eyes practically glowing beneath the dim lights of the bar.

As his eyes landed on me, he stopped dead in his tracks, his nose working overtime as he picked up my scent. I felt an explosion of something inside of me—hope.

Could it be? I thought desperately. Have I found my fated-mate?

I read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this story. Three Ways to Destiny is the fifth installment to the SoCal Cuties series. It can be read as a stand-alone. However, I recommend having read previous books first due to character mentions and best understanding of the whole series. Arthur, Sid, and Oliie are fated mates. Arthur and Sid are two alphas who butt heads a lot but the one thing they agree on is their feelings for Ollie. There is a guaranteed HEA but the road to getting there is worth reading. I truly enjoyed it.

Great short story about fated mates. This book had an unique storyline involving an omega with two alphas. Great storytelling, with some very steamy scenes. Highly recommended for mpreg fans.
