Review by Lilac
Everyone has secret desires, especially werewolf, Leyland Summers. He dreams of two sexy mates to bring all of his fantasies to life. When he encounters a sexy cowboy who wants to take him for a wild ride, what does he say? Hell yes!
Coming to ranch country for a picture shoot, Leyland was shocked to find not one, but two mates. Being a tri-omega, he had always known that he would have two mates. He just never expected to find them in the same place. Or to find out that they had been lovers for years.
Having two mates is no big deal for Leyland. He grew up with two fathers. But having two mates that were already in love is something all together different. How is he supposed to share Lucas with Jake...or Jake with Lucas? And where does that leave him?
In this wonderful and touching story, tri-omega werewolf Leyland Summers is destined to have two mates and secretly longs for the two perfect men who will bring his fantasies to life. When his car breaks down he feels an instant attraction to the cowboy that comes to his rescue, Alpha wolf Jake McAlester. It is an attraction that Jake seems to share as things quickly heat up between the two. The only problem is that Jake already has a lover in Beta wolf, Lucas. Imagine the three men’s surprise when they realize that they are all destined to be with each other as mates. Having two mates isn’t a problem for Leyland as he knew that was his destiny, however, he didn’t expect to find two mates that were already in love with one another. He worries about his role in this complicated relationship as his mates already share a bond. Jake and Lucas are surprised to learn of Leyland’s status as a tri-omega and their role in this threesome as they never thought to share their mate once they found him. The three men have a lot to learn as their relationships change and the sexual tension escalates between the three.
I truly enjoyed every minute of this story and I believe that the characters are what made it a great read for me. Leyland, Jake, and Lucas are fascinating individuals each with their own strengths and weaknesses who come together to form an interesting threesome. Although at times I felt Leyland was a bit immature and annoying, he was a remarkable character and a nice complement to his two partners. Jake, the Alpha male, was a strong character who has some jealousy issues to deal with as he didn’t expect to share his mate…even if it is with his best friend and lover. And I really felt for Lucas, Jake’s Beta wolf and lover at the beginning of the story as he faced losing his best friend and lover to someone else. He had a lot to deal with so it was interesting to see him realize that Leyland was meant for him as well. Both Jake and Lucas will do anything to keep Leyland and their concern and caring comes across very well. And as I said things quickly heat up for Leyland and his lovers when it comes to the sexual side of their relationship…almost too quickly. The three share a touching and highly sensual relationship and their love scenes definitely heat this story up from the very beginning.
The ending of this story and the threesome’s relationship really touched me as I felt for the men. I don’t wish to spoil anything, but let’s just say that the three have a lot to learn throughout the story about their bond and what it means for them both mentally and physically. The whole concept of a tri-omega and the relationship between the three men fascinated me as we learned more about what it means.
What also fascinated me was the pack of werewolves living on the ranch. Jake is the Alpha of a small pack of werewolves who were ostracized from their original pack for being gay. You can’t help but feel for these men and I longed to know more about the various members of the pack. With a few secondary characters who look like they will get stories of their own, this was a great start to what promises to be an interesting series.
