About The Book

The Alphas think they own everything. Including people. Well, I’m here to say they don’t own me, and I will never let one of those bastards touch me again.

The Review

From the very beginning, I felt a sense of outrage over how Omegas are treated. The author definitely knows how to incite emotions in the reader. A spark of hope for a better future is struck when the Alpha, Orion, visits his newly acquired Omega farm and makes a connection with the battered Omega, Holland. Orion dislikes the idea of Omega farms but his visit prompts him to take responsibility for the Omegas who live there.

 This book has the feel of a Cinderella story, but the plot twists just enough to keep the reader from looking for a glass slipper. Holland’s defiant attitude keeps him from turning into little more than a victim of circumstance, but I would have liked to see him take more action outside of his developing relationship with Orion.

 The author does a wonderful job of painting vivid pictures. I could almost feel the sense of comfort that Holland gains from resting in a lounge chair near the pool.

I recommend this book, if you enjoy an Alpha/Omega story in a world with only male characters, and you are interested in seeing how the characters adapt their personalities to suit the roles they were born into.

The Reviewer

Lives in the Pacific Northwest and vacations in the desert as often as possible. She is allergic to garlic, sleeps during the day whenever possible, and breaks out in an allergic rash when exposed to excessive sunlight. She has a degree in engineering, works at a comic book store, and goes for long bike rides at night during the full moon because of the sun allergy. Aethena was forced to switch to mostly e-books and audio books when the last floor to ceiling bookcase started to overflow. She is on her fifth e-reader, and is contemplating using her engineering degree to design an e-reader that can withstand her capacity for destruction.
