Reviews Omega Arrival

5 stars Vvacious:

This world never ceases to surprise me. Initially I was a little hesitant regarding this book given that it wasn’t about River and Josiah and taking into account the ending of Third Mate, I was really anxious to know about River and Josiah’s future. But this book has just given me another relationship I want to know more about and that is the threesome of Grey, Ian and Gabriel.

This book mainly follows Justin and Gabriel on their journey as mates in the Angel Hills Pack.

Gabriel was one person who caught my eye even in the previous books because of his reticence to mating and that made him stand-out as a character but this book puts him in the spotlight and it was amazing.

I loved Gabriel and Ian, they were such amazing characters and in their own ways they kind of challenged the stereotypes of omega and beta and it was very enjoyable meeting these two diverse characters. Ian was actually such a surprise, I mean he is kind of like an alpha in his mannerisms, just looking at him with Grey was amazing. I mean Ian understands Grey so well that even Grey doesn’t realise how well Ian knows him. Also even though Grey is the alpha in the relationship between Grey, Ian and Gabriel, it is Ian who holds them together, I mean its amazing how he can comfort both his mates while still never letting Grey’s ego take a hit. It was actually amazing and I really want to know where this relationship between Grey, Ian and Gabriel goes especially now, with the subterfuge that Gabriel and Ian have managed to pull off. (view spoiler) Oh! I really want to know what happens…

Gabriel is similarly an omega who would give anything to be a beta and be rid of his heats. I instantly liked Gabriel given how he was a little uneasy in his new life which was further compounded by the fact that he had never liked how needy he got while in heat. But I appreciated Gabriel’s sensibility given how he works out his options and acts quickly on having figured out that he is kind of getting swiftly pushed into a corner by his own decisions.

I am guessing we are going to get more books on the Angel Hills Pack, because I would love to now more about Gabriel, Ian and Grey.

Then we have Justin and Milo, personally for me in this book Justin and Milo were kind of overshadowed by Gabriel, Ian and Grey except in certain key moments. I loved Justin’s concern for his pups and how he realises that he should marry someone who could love his pups even half as much as he does and I loved the scene between Tim and Milo in the end. It was really sweet. Also Justin and Milo had some explosive chemistry reminiscent of Josiah and River. Also I loved the story arc that was centered around Justin and Milo.

There are also other plot elements which are worth mentioning. I loved Gabriel’s concern for his fellow omegas and I liked the little hints we get into Vince’s situation, Canaan’s destructive behaviour and Xavier’s plight. Also this book offers information regarding the fate of the people who left the River Wolf Pack, I guess the author wanted to skip the drudgery of River(& Co.)’s travels and get the entire group in a somewhat contained situation before beginning their story while at the same time giving us a very good idea about the fate of the River Wolf Pack and the perils of River’s Travels. Also we got a amazing new character in the form of Christopher but I am really hoping Canaan’s story can get a peaceful ending, I mean he is somewhat of a disaster but I have always felt bad for him since he lost his son. Here’s hoping that story gets a happy ending.

Well as is evident this story resolves a few story lines but opens a whole can of new ones, I am really hoping this means there will be a lot more books which will hopefully be as amazing as their predecessors because I for one can’t wait to get a hold of the next one.

Emotions run high when five omegas are traded to the Angel Hills Pack, which has suffered a decline in population after an illness killed a fourth of its wolves.

After a previous mating Justin would rather forget, he’s happy to leave his old compound and start afresh. A part of him hopes the gorgeous second-in-command alpha, Milo, will choose him for a mate. As memories of his life with Stone haunt his dreams, Justin struggles to make the right decision for himself as well as his four pups.

Gabriel doesn’t want to mate at all, but as one of the traded omegas, he knows he doesn’t have a choice. He just hopes he’ll end up with a beta and not an alpha. How does he feel when he’s mated to both? Grey is the pack alpha of Angel Hills and he and his baron beta, Ian, want to start a family to continue the dynasty. Is that all they want Gabriel for, a breeding machine?

When an intruder is detected in the compound, everyone is on high alert, especially as the new arrival proves remarkably adept at remaining hidden. Will the newly-created mating bonds be strong enough, or will rancor and bitterness win out?

Excerpt from Third Mate

EXCERPT:
Note: may contain sexually explicit scenes of a homoerotic nature.

The humans were not the only outsiders at the meeting. Two representatives from the Angel Hills Wolf Pack had arrived late that afternoon in order to attend the conference — an alpha by the name of Milo, and a beta named Ace. Leo sat studying them while Rafe read out the minutes of the last meeting over five months prior. Like most alphas, Milo was tall and well-muscled. He had a head of black hair pulled into a top knot and chiseled features with cheekbones that stood out below hawk-like dark eyes. His arms and one side of his neck were covered in tattoos of strange symbols, and Leo wondered what they signified.

The beta was slighter, with lean, toned muscles and long runner’s legs. His short brown hair was sun-streaked, and he had a long, straight nose and attention-grabbing icy blue eyes beneath dark, well-shaped brows. Leo noticed a tattoo peeking out from under the right sleeve of his shirt. He seemed to be taking in everything with interest, particularly the group of humans. Leo couldn’t help but feel sorry for the females, Cara and Beth, who stood out like sore thumbs among so many males.

Stone’s sharp, deep voice cut into Leo’s thoughts, and he turned his attention to the front where the contentious alpha had already begun arguing his points.

“… no place for females. Do they even have any werewolf in them?”

“Of course they do; they’re mine. They are developing as quickly as any werewolf child.” River said more calmly than Leo would have under the scrutiny of so many condemning eyes.

“But have they shifted?” someone asked.

“Not yet. You know as well as I do that they could be a year old before they shift.”

If they shift,” Stone muttered. “And most do by seven months.”

“If they don’t shift,” someone else said, “they aren’t werewolves. They’ll have to leave.”

“They don’t belong here.” Stone stood, feet apart and hands on hips. Justin, Stone’s pregnant omega, cowered in submission at the sound of Stone’s displeased voice. His three beta mates sat with eyes downcast, although Leo saw Canaan glance up more than once. There was something shrewd and calculating about Canaan, and although Leo felt sorry for him after his son was killed, it didn’t make it any easier to like him.

“As my children, they certainly do belong here, as yours do, and the progeny of everyone else present,” River said, tone brooking no argument.

Stone made a frustrated sound and looked around, eyes landing on Griffin, an alpha of Stone’s age.

Griffin stood. “Your own father drove your mate’s father from the pack for having relations with a human female.”

“My father did not drive him out. Derrick was punished — told he couldn’t leave the compound. But he ran away.”

“This is true,” Old Ben called out.

“The fact remains that Thorn did not approve of the boy’s actions,” Griffin argued. “He didn’t invite Derrick to bring his female lover into the pack because females don’t belong with werewolves.”

“I don’t know what you’re getting at,” River said with a sigh. “I am not attempting to bring a female among us. My daughters were born to me, and are therefore a part of this pack.”

Before Griffin could speak again, Stone interrupted. “Which wouldn’t have happened if you hadn’t mated with the half-human, which you did without consulting the pack.”

“Josiah is a werewolf,” River said. “And I do not need to consult my pack before mating.”

Half-werewolf,” Stone corrected. “Unlike someone who willingly takes the bite and transforms, your mate will always be part human. Which is why he spawned twin abominations –”

In two steps, River crossed the room and had Stone’s neck between his hands, thumbs cutting off the alpha’s air flow. Leo glanced at the humans. Several flinched, and others looked horrified.

“Don’t you ever,” River breathed heavily into Stone’s purpling face, “ever speak of my mate or children in that manner again. Am I clear?”

Stone’s eyes bulged and his mouth gaped as he tried to dislodge River’s grip. Leo stood, along with the other alphas in the room. As pack alpha, River had the right to kill Stone for such an insult, and Leo found himself almost hoping River would.

Rainbow Snippets is a fun Facebook group where authors share snippets of what they write. My River Wolf Pack series has romance, erotica, pack dynamics, as well as the dynamics between werewolves and humans. This snippet is from Second Alpha, the second book in the series and now live. This scene happens after a harrowing ordeal that’s left David emotionally rattled.

It struck David as even funnier that Brooks should be reassuring him rather than the other way around, and he shook his head, laughing harder. When he was finally able to take a deep breath, he realized his face was wet with tears.“David.” A very familiar voice called to him, one David would recognize no matter where or when, and David lifted his head, eyes wide, to find Jax kneeling beside him.

Before David could say anything, River pushed forward and, slipping his hands under David’s arms, hoisted his friend to stand and into a crushing hug.

“Are you okay?” River asked, mouth near David’s ear. As he came to himself, David slowly nodded, embarrassment at his reaction rolling over him. He gruffly wiped his face with his hand, letting his head rest for a brief moment on River’s shoulder before drawing away. “How the fuck did Foster get a gun?” he asked.

For the Facebook group Rainbow Snippets, where every week authors share snippets of their work.

This week’s snippet is from Love Will Find a Way, released today. Weeks before their wedding, Aiden finds out that his fiance has been hiding something from him for years.

“Bryar called me,” Eve told (Aiden) when he padded barefoot into the kitchen. She handed him a cup of coffee, and he nodded his thanks. Wrapping his hands around the cup, he leaned against the counter and breathed in the coffee’s aroma. His head ached, and his eyes still felt swollen. He took a long sip, the caffeine waking nerves deadened by sleep and misery.

“What did he say?”

“He wanted to make sure you were here. He was worried about you. I told him he was an ass for doing this to you, and he agreed.”

“Yes, that’s something all three of us can agree on.” Aiden stared into his cup.
