Marly Miles has been happy in his life as a lone Omega wolf, living and working among the humans of Orlando, Florida. When an attack on him and his friend brings Marly to the notice of the Sergeant of Arms of the Epitaph’s Motorcycle Club, he realizes immediately that the man carries the same scent as his attackers. Not a very good start when the same man is also his mate.
Alpha wolf, Trent Beaumont has spent a lot of years living as a human when he walked away from his home pack. Forced to live as a straight man, because of the Epitaph’s club culture, he walks away from Marly after checking the man is safe. But no wolf, not even an Alpha, can refuse the mating call from the Fates. But with his club President looking over his shoulder, and a woman panting after him to share his bed, Trent isn’t sure it will ever be the right time to claim his own Omega.
Fights, misunderstandings and a lack of communication aren’t the only problems Trent and Marly face. Trent has a history that has clouded his judgment and when Marly gets attacked again, Trent realizes he could lose his mate permanently, if he doesn’t get his head out of the sand.
Warning: Contains one hot biker, a beautiful twink with a sassy mouth, and a ton of misunderstandings. Graphic m/m sex, violence and strong language.
If you’re a fan of Lisa Oliver you know that she’s amazing at creating really well-developed characters full of flaws and strengths who fall in love with passion and some humor. Her Alpha/Omega series is definitely no different.
It starts with a closeted Motorcycle gang member who finds his omega after other gang members have beaten him. Right from the start Trent has to pick his loyalties and change his life. Marly, understandably, is less willing to trust.
While this is not my favorite of Lisa’s series, I’ve really enjoyed it. None of these characters stand out for me as strongly as those in Cloverleah, but they are all unique and have their own appeal. This series is more loosely connected and each book is more standalone than in Cloverleah.
Derrick McClain does a great job narrating the audiobook and absolutely adds to the overall sense of “being there” and I think listening is a great way to experience this story.
3.5 of 5 stars for the audiobook
