Ten years ago, my fated mate walked away from our bond. Now he’s back to claim what’s his. Knot a chance.
The thing they don’t tell you about fated mates is they hold the power to destroy you.
When I felt the bond between us, anticipation filled me — I thought I would finally get to meet my mate and start my new life. But then he vanished, leaving me alone and broken. Every time the wind blew, I imagined it’s him coming to claim me, but he never did.
I’m done waiting on this selfish Alphahole. After tonight, I’m running as far away as my four paws can carry me.
Of course, now is the time he finally decides to return and claim me. My mate is a feral Alpha, a shifter on the brink of madness and as likely to rip my throat out as mate me.
Why is it always the crazy ones that are hotter than sin?
As much as I try to resist, my body responds to his primal magnetism. His touch sets my skin ablaze with desire and his scent seeps deep into my core, sending me into a frenzied heat.
I can’t run until my heat is over and I need my mate to help me through it. My inner Omega compels me to stay and give him a second chance, to let this feral Alpha claim me as his own, but I’m not so easy to convince.
Point of view:
1st person. Alternating between Aubrey and Liam’s perspective.
After reading & loving Bridget Blake’s Happy Birthday Omega – I was excited to dive into more of her work.
I’ve only read a few books where one half of the fated mates rejects the bond. In this case, Liam has a good reason – but poor Aubrey, she’s spent a decade hurting and steeling herself against what will happen if they ever meet again. Faced with an impending heat and Liam’s feral status means a delicate balance of meeting physical needs while also creating an emotional bond. I like the way Blake balances this. Especially honoring Aubrey’s strength and determination with Liam’s appreciation for her spirit.
Speaking of heat! If you like sexy scenes that are chapters long and from both perspectives – Blake has definitely brought the heat. Add in Liam’s drive to care for Aubrey in sometimes adorable ways. It manages to be gloriously savage and delightfully sweet at the same time.
A bit of a romantic suspense element really amps up the pacing. I could not put my iPad down in the last half. I enjoyed the HEA for Liam and Aubrey and so happy they got a “one year later” epilogue.
As written, this stands completely on its own. However, I can see how Blake could launch a series and write more books in this world. If I get to vote – I want Freya’s book please.
I received an advanced copy of the ebook from the author and am leaving an honest review.
