WOLF LOST BY SAM BURNS
An omega on the run.
An alpha fractured.
Sawyer Holt can’t go home. The Alpha who has replaced his father wants to use him as a tool to cement his political power, and Sawyer isn’t interested in marrying his father’s murderer.
Dez Sullivan’s leg may never heal from his last mission in Afghanistan, but he’s getting used to that. What he can’t adapt to are the nightmares and the tremor in his hand that the doctors insist is all in his head. Next to that, being a brand new werewolf seems easy, until Sawyer Holt blows into his life. The omega activates his burgeoning wolf instincts in a new way, and they threaten to overwhelm his common sense.
Both men are in Colorado searching for a new start, a new pack, and the safety they’ve lost. Their meeting is pure Kismet.
Maybe seconds chances do exist; that certainly seems to be the case when Sawyer Holt stumbles into a rundown, closed cafe in Kismet Colorado where he meets Desmond Sullivan, one of three alphas that form the Kismet Wolf Pack.
Dez, a wounded war veteran and newly turned werewolf, just wants to rest his damnable leg after a long day but in stumbles maybe the prettiest guy he's ever seen. And he's followed by two assholes looking to drag him back into the past. Without thinking about it, Dez offering Swayer the protection he so desperately needs.
From there, the two fall in love quickly. But, their love wasn't the focus of the story. Instead, Wolf Lost was a well rounded tale about four men, each different from the other, forming a family and coexisting together when most would assume it was impossible. The romance was honestly just a perk that made Wolf Lost a five star read.
I enjoyed how Sawyer and Dez tipped toed around each other until they didn't at all. The flirtation that built the sexual tension between the two was perfect.
Because this was my first Omegaverse book, I was a little surprised that Swayer didn't need lube or preparation but I wasn't the only one! And I loved seeing how Dez responded to learning about all things Alpha, Omega and in between.
Over all, I enjoyed reading Wolf Lost. I count it as one of my best reads of the year in fact!
My honest hope is that Gavin or Asher, two of the three Alpha's, get their own book because there were so many unanswered questions.
Does Asher learn to bake? Will he ever know how to use the Espresso Machine?
What is up with Gavin's wolf? Why is he so hesitant to shift into his second form? Is the cop he went on a date with HOT?
Is Ms. Nobel, the bookstore owner who reads a little too much, going to freak out now that she knows werewolves don't just exist in books?
