Author Name: Lisa Oliver
Publication Date & Length: December 6, 2014 – 548 pgs
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.
This book was such a good addition to this series!
Dean is the omega of Kane’s pack and is very quiet but strong when it comes to helping protect the pack.
Matthew is a very strong alpha and as soon as he scents Dean he knows he is his mate and he must protect him and care for him.
These two together was really just so sweet! Matthew cares so much about Dean and is so protective of him. The same goes for Dean who feels the same for Matthew.
They have their up and downs while trying to grow as a couple between the men trying to hurt and take Dean and everything else that was going on that kept trying to separate them.
This book had a lot of action which kept me on the edge of my seat but also a lot of steam between these two men. I have to say I loved the characters in this book and was so excited to see Dean finally get his HEA. He has been one of my favorite characters in this series so far and I really happy to get to know more about him in this book and at the same time so sad because everything he went through with his old pack with the abuse they inflicted on him which was horrible.
I want to say I love, love this shifter world this author has created along with the characters and how with every book so far in this series you get to see all the previous characters in this series too!
All together I really loved this book!
I would recommend this book and this series!
