Colby

Until I pissed Lloyd off, I'd always thought that the Omega Auctions were an urban myth, something that packs used to scare Omegas into obeying. As it turns out, not so much. When Lloyd and Ivan delivered me to the auction house, it was immediately clear that shit had just gotten real. I could only guess at what Lloyd had written on my intake forms, but it was obvious that these people believed I was dangerous.

Rafe

"Usually only one reason that an Alpha buys someone like me," Colby had said.

I watched the emotions flitting through eyes on a face set like stone and considered his words.

Colby might be bigger, stronger, and, yeah, tougher than most Omegas, but he was still an Omega. An unbonded Omega with no pack. An Omega who thought that the differences that set him apart, the differences that made my wolf scream with the need to claim him, meant that he'd stay that way.

Wow, miscommunication much?

This was a good story marred by a lot of miscommunication. That is frustrating in itself, but I'm not sure the author did a good enough job (for my taste) of establishing why both MCs had such an issue. I understood Colby's inability, for the most part. Overall, this story does a great job of keeping the series going and setting up dramatic tension for the next book.

An improvement...

The author has no sense of pacing or character development, but at least there was a plot this time. The overarching theme of trivializing rape and sexual assault continues in this book and made me super uncomfortable. The glorification of hazing was new, but also troubling. The most compelling parts of this series are accidental, which is super unsatisfying because they don't get addressed. I spent a few hours stewing over whether books like this one, which clearly fails to truly understand or empathise with sexual assault, compounds ideas that harm real world victims-rather than wondering about characters or the story at all. The characters are mostly interchangeable and devoid of agency anyway.

More Shifter Goodness

This doesn't exactly pick up where the previous book left off, but they are connected and the stories converge do converge. In this installment when meet Colby and not-so-average omega. He's large, strong, and aggressive, which is why he found himself in chains at the Omega Auction with little to no hope of being purchased. Insert Rafe, alpha of a not-so-average pack and Colby is the perfect omega for him.

Of course there is angst and miscommunications, misunderstandings. But what I like about this story more than the other is that there is action/adventure involved. Omegas are being kidnapped and Rafe and his pack have been tasked by the shifter council to locate the ring and take it down. There is also a missing pregnant omega from an allied pack thrown into the mix. We meet up with characters from the first book in the series and meet a lot of new ones.

I'm liking where the series is going so far and plan to continue.

Who love shifters...I Do!

Colby and Rafe's love is different. Its like no other Alpha and omega's story. Reason, Colby is not like any other submissive. He is a force to be reckon with. And Rafe is the kind of alpha that can handle this different kind of male wolf. Their story is pure heat with some drama to give it the right balance. Alexander Collins narrated their story wonderfully. I so highly recommend. ENJOY!

I love Colby and Rafe

These two main characters are so unconventional that its great. A big change from the first book this book expands on the world and sets things up for a much larger series and cast of characters.

Accepting people's differences

I still did not like the narrator but I did enjoy the book very much. I blocked out the sound of the voice and just concentrated on the words.
Colby isn't the normal submissive Omega. Everyone in his previous pack thought that he was an alpha until he went into heat. So he was raised as an alpha and was very strong. Colby was given to an alpha by his father. But the alpha was twice his age and Colby refused to mate him, so he was taken to auction.
Rafe is at the auction house searching for his perfect Omega mate while also doing an investigation. He finds out that the Omega of an alpha he knows is being sold after she was taken.
He asks if there are any Omegas that meet his requirements of being strong and not being overly submissive. They show him Colby.
This is not only the story between the two main characters but also the acceptance of an Omega who is different, by other members of the new pack. This new pack does investigations for other packs so there is the search for missing Omegas happening too.
I liked this book and will read more in this series

Strong Omega

My biggest complaint to the audio narration was they fact that I had to speed up the reading of the book just a bit. I loved the different unconventional ideas presented in this story. I like how strong Colby is including stand up to those who attack him. I was a bit confused those on the time frame of the captured omega and how long ago he was seen but I am looking forward to see what will happen next

Robot narrator

I just could not get into the story, I had to double check to see if maybe it actually narrated by a real person or C-3PO
