Audiobook: Getting Close to the Omega (Cloverleah Pack #5) by Lisa Oliver Narrated by John York




Book Five – Cloverleah Pack Series
Can be read as a standalone.

Dean Weir has finally found happiness in his position as Omega wolf of the Cloverleah pack. He has his friends, his work and his art and he has never looked for anything else. Badly abused by his ex-home pack and Alpha, Dean keeps his head down and stays out of trouble. That is, until his mate joins the pack.

Matthew Charmichael is over a hundred years old and has been a lone wolf for longer than he can remember. Joining the Cloverleah pack after he heard they were having trouble with another wolf shifter, Matthew is overjoyed to find his mate is the cute little Omega of the small pack. But Dean’s past, and the constant attacks on the pack from the mysterious Kylan, could mean that Matthew and Dean won’t get their HEA after all. Can Dean overcome his past, and embrace the powers that a claimed Omega is purported to have, or will his ex-pack kill him before he and Matthew have a chance?

Warning: This is a love story between two male wolf shifters. It includes graphic depictions of sex between men as well as some violence and coarse language. Historical abuse themes are referred to, but not described.


Yay! Dean’s story! (Again, I guess you could read these as standalones, but they really read better in order.)

The main story arc with Kylan continues, and his involvement in the Cloverleah pack deepens and centers on Dean, the Omega.

It appears that Dean may be the only Omega left and that once mated he’ll come in to special powers. Luckily, Matthew, an Alpha from another pack wants to move to Cloverleah and they find out they are mates.

What’s really lovely is how wonderfully beautiful it is as Dean finds his own feet in the world and how he gradually grows to trust Matthew. Matthew is perfect for Dean, big but sweet and really patient.

I continually scratch my head at Kane – he always acts like such a dick any time there are new matings!

This was really sweet, with some good action/adventure and a nice addition to the series.


John York continues to do a nice job with this series.
He handles the drama, action, smexy times and vast amount of characters really well.

I don’t love Dean’s choice of voice characterization but it’s not annoying.
