Bax is desperate.
Recently widowed, he takes his pups and flees his pack to avoid a new mate who wants him—but not his babies. At Mercy Hills, he finds the help he’d hoped for, but also a man who both attracts and unnerves him. He doesn’t want another alpha mate, or even any mate, though he knows that an omega has to have one. But Abel is unlike any other alpha he’s ever met, and the hope that had been crushed out of him begins to grow again in the warmth of Abel’s kindness and strength.
Bax is a dream come true for Abel—smart, loyal, strong, and loving. Everything Abel’s ever looked for in a mate. Except the independent omega has no reason to trust an alpha and Abel’s going to have to work his way through layers of hurt if he wants to convince Bax he’s safe opening his heart.
But to keep him, he’ll have to fight for him.
While I long for an omegaverse romance where omega's have equity and the conflicts are based around character and relationships, this was a really well written world of shifters and omegas.
Bax is a wonderful father and hero of his own life. Able is lovely and his attention to who Bax as well as Bax's childern is awesome.
The plot drags for me as a romance because it takes a while for this element of the story to start and when it does the outside conflicts drive the plot a bit too much for me.
I love forward to reading more by this writer.
