Blurb : According to legend, when humankind is at its most desperate, the goddess Sirius will send three of the most powerful werewolf shifters ever created to save mankind. However, because they are so powerful, they will need a fourth to complete them, to calm them and help them reach their full potential.
Aden, a young were, has been his pack’s omega ever since, at the age of fifteen, he didn’t shift like everyone else. Caught, reviled, and tortured because of his empathic abilities, he knew on the night he was told to run as sport for the pack hunters that it would end in his death. What he didn’t know, however, was that on the same night he’d also meet the love of his life and a pathway to answers, because Aden is far more than just a pack omega.
What begins as a hunt soon becomes a new adventure as Aden discovers that he has not only one, but three destined mates, and his role as lover is far more than trivial. The fate of all humankind rests upon it.
My Review : This was definitely a remarkable feat for this author, to create a world so interesting and to spin and weave a werewolf story that has never been told. Usually, I can barely even tolerate threesomes because the plot gets so jumbled and oftentimes you can’t understand who says what. This was not the case here. Here we have a foursome, they are all very distinctive and their voices echo throughout.
Aden, the omega is saved by a trio of alpha werewolves from his pack who has been torturing him and seem to be intent on killing him. The strongest of alphas Blaze is the one we are introduced to first. He is the strength of their foursome, the one who makes the decisions. Darric is the sensualist, and Conner is the empath, the one who feels the most intense emotions. Aden feels the most comfortable with Conner, but only because they can both ‘feel’ each other really well. Aden is the heart, peace and comfort of their foursome. They need him so much more than he even understands.
Aden has a lot to learn from these three breathtakingly handsome men who he feels he is unworthy of having. Aden is definitely stunned when they tell him that they are his mates and that he completes their circle by being the psi and omega that they have long awaited for over 600 years. With their Orion’s Circle now complete, they can all take on the weight of the world and begin reparations to humankind.
All three men lavished and pampered their newly found mate. The intimacy amongst the four of them was astounding. They were indeed a circle, there was no beginning and no end. Nobody was left out and they all loved and worked together in cohesion.
Their peace and tranquility is soon ripped asunder when Aden allows himself to be deceived by the entreaties of his former pack mates who he thought were friends. By the time his mate Blaze finds him, everything is a mess. Aden’s pack mates tries to take his manhood away by burning him with acid. Aden now feels insecure and believes he has nothing to offer his mates. A part of the Orion’s Circle ritual is that he needs to mount Blaze in order for their circle to be complete. To top it all off, Blaze has turned his back on Aden believing that he willingly left his mates. It is not until Darric smells the truth on Aden, that things have a chance to be repaired. It was very emotional watching the foursome get back to the level of comfort that they were used to.
Their makeup sex was incredibly hot. They soon find out that their precious omega Aden is pregnant. They are all excited and they overwhelm their mate with all their pampering. Aden embraces it and relish in his newfound self confidence. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear.
Favorite Quotes : 1. He saw Darric’s soft smile and heard the pleasure in his mind from all of them. “Breathe with me.” Aden dissolved under Darric’s calm words. He was ready for this. He felt more lube plastered around his tight hole as Blaze eased in slowly. Aden moved restlessly. His lips parted on a cry as pain flared suddenly in his ass. Blaze, please. “Look at me Aden, keep looking at me.” Darric brushed small kisses on Aden’s lips, so gentle. He whimpered at the pain, but Darric was almost detaching him from it. Blaze stopped inching and held still. Aden thought he would split in two. There’s no way. He wrenched his eyes from Darric and looked at Blaze, ready to shout. Blaze was poised, completely still. Every tendon stood out on his neck from the effort of not moving. Harsh gasps left his lips, and his eyes were screwed tight shut. Blaze was barely hanging on by a thread. Aden was awestruck that this powerful man cared so much about his comfort to discipline himself like this. Taking a slow breath and keeping his eyes firmly fixed on Blaze, Aden finally relaxed and slowly moved, swinging his hips a little, inviting Blaze deeper. ( There is just something so breathtakingly perfect with this performance, all of them moving in tandem with each other.)
2. Blaze’s eyes snapped open, and he slid in until his hips pressed against Aden’s. Aden melted as a wide smile shone across the man’s face—a smile he had put there. Aden arched as Darric’s teeth found his nipple, and the gentle tug took his focus from the discomfort. Blaze inched again, and Conner tongued his cock. Pain and pleasure melded into one. Darric caught his mouth and Aden was lost. It was impossible to feel this good. Long swipes from Conner’s tongue had Aden ready to shoot again in seconds. Darric swallowed every warning moan, and Blaze slid out, then back in, time and time again until Aden was delirious with need. His mind swirled with unnamed emotions as his whole body tightened and thundered towards orgasm. Just as he reached the pinnacle of the hill, Conner pushed down and deep throated him. And that was what it took to launch him off the cliff. He barely heard Blaze shout with his own release. ( Greatttt teamwork 😉.)
