Synopsis

Falling for his deceased twin brother’s mate was never part of Dustin’s plan.
This midwestern Alpha might be a little rough around the edges, but he lives by a few simple principles and honor is chief among them.
Nonetheless, when tragedy strikes the Meadowlands Pack, Dustin feels he has no choice but to bring his twin’s mate home to take care of him. The only problem is, Caleb isn’t anything like Dustin expected of the city omega who stole his brother’s heart and divided their family.
What starts out as trying to do the right thing soon becomes a blurry series of complicated decisions that lead Dustin further away from the path he’s always followed—and further into the arms of the one omega he was never supposed to want.
~
Caleb has been through the worst a mated omega could fear. He’s lost his mate and their unborn child, and now he finds himself at the mercy of an Alpha who has every reason to hate him.
Despite being twins, Dustin and Caleb’s former mate, Alec, are nothing alike. Caleb wants nothing more than to please his new Alpha and secure his position in the pack, but Dustin seems to take everything he says the wrong way.
As forbidden tensions mount between Alpha and omega, Caleb begins to fear that Dustin will start taking his developing interest the right way.
~ Approximately 38k words. This is the first book in the Great Plains Series, and it takes place in The Mountain Shifters universe. This steamy romance contains content for adult audiences only, including MPREG and other Alpha/omega themes. HEA, no cliffhanger.

 

Cheryl’s Book Brief

This is a cute little book with a gentle story and not a lot of drama. It’s an easy read and whilst it is not the best writing I’ve read, it’s not going to make you want to throw it at the wall.

My biggest criticism lies with the characters. There was lot of opportunity for real emotional depth and character growth. The book starts with a death and I would have expected more emotional exploration. I never felt that I really got to know any of the characters, and I really didn’t feel the connection between Dustin and Alec or Dustin and Caleb. That’s a pity because there was so much potential

That’s not to say there is no emotional depth or character development, it’s just that it could have been so much better. The ingredients were there to make a deep, three-dimensional book but, for me, it fell short.

Having said that, the book has all the ingredients for a pleasant read. The characters are diverse and entertaining, even if they didn’t have the growth and connection I would have liked. The story is fresh and interesting and although some of the story threads felt a little contrived at times they were all cohesive and came together nicely at the end.

If you’re looking for a book with tension and angst, or one that gives you a major dose of the feels I guess this book isn’t for you. If you’re looking for something nice and light but with plenty of story, then I’d recommend you give it a try.
