Blurb: THE LAST THING HE WAS LOOKING FOR…
Jake is an alpha wolf on a mission to find his missing sister, who’s been kidnapped by the Alpha of his former pack. What he didn’t expect to find was a whole group of omega’s being held captive along with her. When he catches the scent of his fated mate among the group of omegas, he knows that he will do whatever it takes to get them all to safety – even if it means taking them all, along with a group of his alpha buddies and forming their own pack, a thousand miles to the north.
WAS THE ONE PERSON HE NEEDED.
Kai was shocked when his own father sold him to the evil Alpha Fremont for a paltry sum of gold. He is befriended by the ragtag group of omegas who also being held in a life of captivity. That is, until the night that a gorgeous Alpha appears, looking to rescue his sister. He takes all of them to safety, along with his studly posse of alpha wolves, moving them all up north to form a new pack.
HIS FATED MATE…THE FATHER OF HIS CHILD?
Kai soon becomes pregnant, settling into his new-found role as the Alpha’s mate, he begins to feel safe for the first time in his life. As his pregnancy progresses, so does the danger, as the former Alpha tracks them down – putting their new pack, and Kai’s future happiness, at risk.
Review: This was an enjoyable read and I like where it is going in the series. It is not fully fleshed out and things happen quickly, which is notorious for shifter and mpreg books that host an alpha and omega pair. I tend to flip flop around when it comes to what calls to me, and sometimes an insta-love slash- mate -mine – now will drive me bonkers, and other times, it just seems to be what I am in the mood for. In this case, I had just finished a heavy book and needed some unrealistic fluff and this story fit the bill. Even though it had its fair share of POV jumping, I still enjoyed it.
Jake is the alpha who is searching for his kidnapped sister. Kai is the omega, who was sold by his father to the same nasty old alpha who stole Jenny, Jake’s sister. Fortunately for both, Jake, and a couple friends, never gave up searching for Jenny and in the process rescued Kai and a couple other omega victims. Jake and Kai, as you may have guessed, are fated mates and the love, happiness, and mating claim was instantly in the air. I understand the biological pull of the fated mates, but I still cringe with the I-love-yous are thrown around within 24 hours of meeting. I think if they’d just accepted the attraction and left the love you parts out, I would have enjoyed it better. Love, in such a short, fast-paced book would have worked better, for me, in an epilogue.
As expected, there was a showdown between the two alphas, and an unexpected death, but I still enjoyed reading it. This is a lesson that not all stories need to be 300 pages and five stars to have an appreciation for the story. To me, it was what I needed after a heavy read and as a reader, that is all I can hope for.
Overall Impression: I liked it!
