Omega (Alpha #3) by Jasinda Wilder: ARC Review

Blurb:

When you make an enemy of a man like Vitaly Karahalios, there is nowhere on earth you can go to escape his wrath. He'll find you. He found me, he found Roth. He found Layla.

He found us, and now the unthinkable has happened. Someone I love has been kidnapped.

Again.

This isn't a fairy tale.

Not everyone will get a happily ever after.

Sometimes we can't just walk away from the past.

Love doesn't always save the day.

The beast won't always get his beauty.

But maybe, just maybe we can get our happy ending.

Review by Michelle:

You just can't go wrong with a Jasinda Wilder book. I love all of her works, but I really love those stories that combine excitement and suspense with a beautiful and dramatic romance and the titillating tidbits that happen inside the bedroom. You may already know from past experience, as I do, that this author can deliver an intense and emotional love story like no other as well as her fair share of incredibly sensual or sinfully steamy scenes, but combine these things with nail-biting action and adventure and you have some of my favorite uniquely captivating and gripping stories. Omega is blisteringly hot, action-packed, thrilling, moving and so much more.

Beyond the bloodlust, the retribution, the retaliation, the violence, and the suspense, the crumbling of walls, the lowering of defenses, and the unexpected fall of two hardened characters determined to never know love is stimulating in its own right. While I expected to continue following Kyrie and Roth on what I hoped was their journey to a long awaited and much needed happily ever after, this story instead veered off to center on and follow two unanticipated characters whom I have come to love and appreciate even more than Alpha's first fabulous couple.

We join Kyrie and Valentine as they begin to fatigue from the chaos and discontent of life on the run and start to long for a simpler, settled life in which they can expand more than just the business. Of course, life with Roth has never been easy and all too soon the past catches up with the two of them affecting not just themselves, but many of their loved ones as well. It is at this time that we gain the perspective of a new wonderfully one-of-a-kind heroine. Outspoken, brash, crude, and somewhat abrasive at times, this new point of view is utterly alpha female, tough as nails and unapologetic. Sounds like it could be a little off-putting right? A little too much even? Done correctly these qualities in a heroine are nothing but admirable, entertaining, and endearing. In case there was any doubt, this time around, it was done just right.

Our two new main characters are the perfect complement for one another. This unbelievably strong, fiercely independent, and unwaveringly self reliant female needs someone just as strong, just as capable, just as confident. Someone who will allow her to take the reins when the situation dictates, but also someone that can take control and shoulder some of her burden, not to mention wrestle those reins right back when needed. Our new hero (in every sense of the word) needs someone who can accept him the way he is, can accept his lifestyle and the actions that comprise it, as well as accept his past. He needs someone that can keep up with him and understand all of the things that he has been through. These two characters, who could not seem more different if they tried, fit together perfectly. So much so that they have become one of my favorite couples and actually stole much of the show from Roth and Kyrie.

Omega is, by far, my favorite book in the Alpha series. This book truly has it all; a fast paced, unputdownable story that is definitely a contender for the hottest read of the summer, a powerful connection between two engrossing characters, and enough excitement to keep you on the edge of your seat and glued to the pages.
