Blurb: Danny escaped his pack, and the traditional life of an omega, ten years ago. He loves his life in New York and wouldn’t trade it for the world. When the past comes walking into his favorite bar, in the form of the alpha his father ordered him to mate ten years ago, can Danny keep pushing his biology aside and keep his independence? Or will he submit to his desire for Mike?

*Disclaimer*: This book contains adult, sexually explicit content with an intense sex scene, male breeding and knotting and dominant alpha with his delicate rare omega. This should not be viewed for anyone under the age of 18.



I was really looking forward to this story and was thrilled when I saw that it was a pretty long series. What I expected in this story, since it was so short, was that it would lay the ground work for what was to come. What I found instead was a rushed outline without any depth. It seemed to miss a lot of important details and way too much was glossed over. It was, obviously, a fast read but when it ended I felt like I had just read a prologue and was a bit confused. I know this is an older book, and may not even be for sale anymore, so I am not going to judge the author too harshly, thus the three star rating.

I am still on the fence about continuing this series because if the next book is similar in theomission of world and character building it will put me off from reading this author in the future, and I don’t want that. Another big issue for me was the tag of mpreg, when there is none in this book. Mpreg was why I picked it up, in the first place, so that was bit annoying. What would make all this better for me is if this book was given an asterisk to say,  “look, this is just a preview of what’s to come”. If I find that is the case, then I may pick up book two. Until then, I can’t recommend this book.

Overall Impression: It was okay

*I purchased my own, personal copy of this book for review.*
