Fagin Mars, alpha-heir of his father’s pack, had two possible life paths. On the one hand, he could do what his father demanded; mate with a female wolf shifter and take over the pack or…something else entirely. Fagin was opting for option two. After a terse exchange with his father, Fagin gets permission to go on a road trip for thirty days. He wants to find his true mate. It shouldn’t be that hard, should it?
Cooper Samuels stayed well away from wolf packs. As an omega, he knew the terrors he’d have to face if he ever got caught in pack territory. Which is why he worked for a human accounting services firm and never told anyone about the furry side of his nature. That was, until he went to meet a prospective new client as a biker bar called Fagin’s Folly. He should’ve known his life was going to change the moment someone barrelled into him and knocked him over.
But just because the Fates stepped in and put these two men on the same path, didn’t mean the journey was going to be easy. Things aren’t all as they seem in Fagin’s home pack and things turn nasty after a night on the town. Kidnappings, challenges and the archaic notions many shifters believed about omega wolves was enough for Fagin to consider handcuffs and not the kinky kind. Will Fagin have to give up his mate so soon after finding him, just to ensure his mate’s safety?
Like all of the books in the Alpha and Omega series, this can be read as a standalone and has no connections to the others in this series. Contains some violence, an Omega who quickly finds his backbone and an Alpha wolf who realizes love is worth any sacrifice. M/M, HEA, No cliffhangers.
This was a fun addition to the Alpha Omega series. It’s not nearly as good as the Cloverleah series in my humble opinion, but it’s fun and reliably predictable.
I enjoy the hurt/comfort nature of these stories and love the retribution our poor beleaguered souls get in the end.
The smexy times are pretty hot and the feelz pretty solid. I didn’t always care for Fagin but I think – in the end – he really redeemed himself.
Great for fans of the author, shifter/omega stories and hurt/comfort.
3.75 (rounded to 4) of 5 stars
(Others have warned about the m/f scene – it’s practically off page… but – yeah – it’s there…)
