His breath came in short gasps. His lungs burned. The cuts on his face and arms from shoving through the underbrush stung. His limbs protested. He wasn’t used to this. Adrenaline and fear were the only things pushing his body onward.
Ori always believed there had to be more to life than the boundaries of his village. There was only one problem: omegas were not allowed to leave. Ever. Willing to risk everything to find something more than life as a breeder, he runs. His path inevitably crosses that of a handsome and charming, red-haired wandering alpha simply called Siv. The two make an unlikely pair and surprisingly good traveling companions. For once in his life, Ori finds himself happy, and in that happiness, he finds he might just trust this mysterious stranger. And Ori has a tendency to follow his instincts. For better or for worse.
DISCLAIMER: THIS IS A VERY HOT AND STEAMY BOOK, OVER 50,000 WORDS M/M LOVERS, INTENDED FOR 18 AND OLDER.
Review: ***3 Stars for this Curious Take on Shifters***
Okay, this one wasn’t a favorite, I must admit, but there were aspects that I really did enjoy. I liked that the omega had spirit and wasn’t just a roll-over-and-take-it kind of shifter. I liked that Siv was willing to do what he needed to in order to ensure Ori was safe – even from Siv, when needed. The plot to this started really well, but then it went over the top for me. Now, please note that I have not read the first book in the series, so perhaps I’d have been better warned if I had and maybe it would have changed things, but I don’t know, and I’m not particularly invested in finding out. The traipsing around and about and the hidden identities and the plot twist and the incredibly abrupt end left me cold. I’m not entirely sure there was an HEA on this story, just because of how it ended. There is definitely an HFN, but we’ll have to see how things progress, if the author elects to take this couple forward.
