Blurb: “Of course I smelled him—smelled him and was drawn to him. Rich, ripe, male omega—not far away and well into his heat. Unsatisfied heat. I laughed, realizing that in this moment, at least, the omega was the boss of the alpha. I needed to help him.”
Angel, an alpha who’s left the violent, strictly hierarchical rules of his pack to find success in the big city, and Leo, an omega on the run from his abusive alpha, are thrust together to satisfy Leo’s urgent heat-lust. But can a once-hurt omega ever trust an alpha to care for and protect him again? And can an alpha sensitive to social injustice learn to enjoy his naturally dominant nature?
Angel and Leo must both face the pasts they ran away from before the two can build a new future together. They may not be able to change the laws of nature, but they can change the language of love.
Omega Reclaimed is a MM alpha/omega shapeshifter novella.
Content warning: this book includes references to past physical abuse and a description of suicide
I love a good alpha-omega story, and especially one that comes with a twist, or two. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the way nature, in the paranormal universe, sets up an omega & alpha bonding along with the hierarchical challenges, but I love it when the characters don’t follow nature’s or their pack’s script.
In this case, we have an alpha and an omega who have defied mother nature and turned their backs on wolfie expectations and nature’s calling…until instinct pushes a little harder and makes it irresistible for these two to resist the calling. That is not to say that it was all for naught, nope, in the end, they both got what they wanted…they just needed to tweak a few things and draw on the foundations for trust.
This author is new to me, and I look forward to seeing where she takes this series. If you are interested in the alpha and omega paranormal world then I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Recommended.
Overall Impression: I liked it!
