Gabriel isn’t a muscle bound sex machine but he does okay. While the son of a political figure he’s also gay so he’s had to learn to keep his activities private. When he encounters a man who dominates him at a favorite sex club his instincts tell him to run while at the same time realizing the man is his one and only. After hiding for weeks his master finds him and Gabriel realizes the true depth of his despair. He’s been marked as the mate of the alpha of a pack of shifters and he is their omega. Can he reconcile his conflicting status with his master’s pack and live a happy life? Or will those who seek to steal him for their own succeed in subjugating him to their whims?
Gabriel’s despair is palatable as the reader begins this book. Once a thriving functioning member of society he’s now lost and desperate. What happened to him? When his master finds him he can’t bring himself to feel anything but relief. But as he and his master come to terms with their relationship Gabriel blooms into the man he was always meant to be.
I thought I knew what an omega was but my understanding was elementary at best. I had no idea the power an omega could wield. Properly nurtured the omega can act as a liaison to the alpha, and in Gabriel’s case that is to be his major function in addition to being a bonded mate. The sex was a little harsh at times and not for the faint of heart, but it was what Gabriel craved so that made it right. Kudos to Gabriel’s mate for recognizing and providing what was needed. A totally different spin on pack dynamics that I found interesting and entertaining. A good read.
After one mind-shattering night with a stranger at a local leather bar leaves him forever changed, Gabriel lives on the streets as a vagrant to elude the master who hunts him, but the were-shifter is a fierce, stubborn predator who reclaims him soon enough. Gabriel is carried away to the pack’s home territory where his instruction on what it means to be the pet of an alpha begins. Gabriel isn’t just any pet, though. He is the rarest among their kind: a human omega.
Treasured? Or cursed?
As Gabriel’s father, the Distinguished Gentleman from Pennsylvania and stalwart of the conservative party, pushes the considerable resources at his disposal to locate his missing son, Gabriel explores who and what he is under his master’s careful protection. Gabriel falls for the shifter who is lover and destroyer, owner and...friend?
