Title: Getting Close to the Omega (Cloverleah Pack #5 – Standalone)
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.
I have to say that Lisa Oliver surprises me more and more with each book in the Cloverleah series. I read a book in the series and I think to my self “it is going to be hard for any other book to beat this one”, then Lisa does just that and blows me away with the next book in the series and how each book is so different then the last.
In this book I completely fell in love with both Dean and Matthew.
Dean being an omega has always been perceived as weak because of his status and the fact that he is smaller then everyone else in a normal pack. He started getting stronger when he met his Alpha Kane and then consequently the pack members but he has never really came into his own. Well that is until he meets his mate Matthew that is.
Matthew is an alpha but he does not want the responsibility of being an alpha of his own pack so after being w loner wolf for so long he joins the Cloverleah pack and meets his mate.
Matthew in my opinion is the perfect mate for Dean because he does not see anything about him as being weak and he will not allow Dean to view himself that way either.
Once mated everything falls into place for both Dean and Matthew but that does not come without a whole new set of trouble that the pack will now have to face together. If they do not then they may just lose their Omega and Matthew may lose the love of his life.
Lisa Oliver just truly blows me away with how much better this series keeps getting and I cannot wait to start the next book in this series.
