We very recently had a Susan Hawke book on the blog, and today we’re back to Susi, her mpreg MM omegaverse name. The Devoted Alpha is the 3rd book in Susi’s West Coast Wolves series. These are best read in order, because they really do build on each other, so you’ll miss stuff if you don’t read them all. But that’s OK, they are good books, and they are all in KU, so you can read them that way.
As a quick brief on this world, it’s a shifter omegaverse with mpreg. Wolf packs are divided into alphas, who lead, and then betas, deltas, gammas, etc. And omegas, of course. When a ruling alpha has more than one alpha child, they have all the heir they need, so they kick all the following alpha children out at 18. The theory is that it’s impossible for more than 2 alphas to get along. But Nick and his friends proved that wrong. The 4 of them, all alphas, got together in a motorcycle club and all was good. Then Matty got called back to his birth pack, and became the alpha of the pack, and they found out that there were omegas that had been stolen from families. So, that’s the basic plot of the first two books. So, let’s talk about Nick and Tom.
Tom was stolen as a baby and his family were told he was stillborn. He was raised with his “brothers”, all omegas in the same state. When he was rescused, he stayed with the pack that saved him, since his brother mated the alpha. On an incredibly dramatic day, Tom helps out at the tasting room of the winery the pack owns, when he meets Nick.
Nick was given a pack when his friend Matty had one pack too many. He’s been trying to help out his pack, but there are all kinds of things going on that he has to maneuver around. Luckily, the territorial alpha has been helping out, and approves of Nick’s plans. So, after he manages to make things happen, he meets with the territorial dude in order to make sure everything is ready to go, but then they find out that the need to go to the winery where one of Nick’s brother alphas has become alpha. When he gets there, he senses Tom and fireworks.
I really like Tom. I like how he doesn’t have problems saying what he thinks about certain things. He doesn’t want to be that omega that anyone one walks over, he’s had too many years of everyone telling him what to do, thing, be, and he’s not going to do that anymore. I think that he’s really strong. He has such a sweet and loving heart too.
Nick. Nick is twisty af. He thinks about 13 steps ahead of everyone else. He thinks about everything that someone else could do and he makes a plan to counter that and to make the other person do what he wants. He knows all the laws and rules and regulations, even the really obscure ones, and he has no problem using them to get what he wants. I wouldn’t want to cross him. I love how patient he is with Tom and how he has no problem letting Tom take the lead.
These two are going to be a massive power couple. I can’t wait to see where the world is going to go.
