I’ve loved Leo and the way he handles things from the very start and as expected, he was a great mate. Eventually. As all men facing a life change behave, he was putting on the brakes and protesting way too much. While clueless and helpless on occasion when it came to dealing with Meena, he excelled when it mattered and really knew how to romance a girl, whether she knew she needed it or not.
Meena, on the other hand, I could have cheerfully strangled. Maybe it’s being the parent of an ADHD child, but she drove me absolutely nuts and annoyed me excessively. And perhaps that was the point. Leo, being the Omega, is ideally suited to handle Meena and all her foibles. Like all women, Meena had her share of insecurities, some she should own and others that weren’t hers but that others liked to pin on her. That’s hurtful, and she built a solid shell as a result. Deep down though, she wanted what all women want; to be a man’s whole world.
While not the best in this series, Leo and Meena’s story certainly had its moments. And I think Leo buried the other recently mated pack members with his romance and style when it came to his dainty flower, Meena. A good read.
Leo is the calm guy. The nice guy. The one nobody screws with. So could someone explain that to Meena so she stops driving him insane—with desire.
When Meena literally throws herself at Leo and declares he’s her mate, his first reaction is to deny—and run far, far away. This lion/tiger mix doesn’t do drama and chaos. Problem is, once he sets eyes on her, he can’t help but want the vivacious blonde with plus-sized curves, perfect for a big man like himself.
He wants her even if it breaks all his rules when it comes to women.
Wants her even if she destroys his serenity.
Wants her more than a perfectly grilled piece of steak with a dash of garlic, pepper, and salt.
Thing is, someone else wants her too.
This poor omega is about to have his world turned upside down, which means everyone better watch out because when Leo experiences love, jealousy, and frustration for the first time, he doesn’t just snap—he roars!
