Book Blurb

Alpha Gaven Freel was taught by his doting beta parents to protect and respect omegas, and he sees those parents as shining examples of how to love his future mate. Except he’s only nineteen and still a university student, so Gaven has plenty of time to find his omega bondmate—but fate has other plans, and he scents his omega from across a crowded waiting room. Too bad his bondmate is the son of his parents’ oldest enemy.


At twenty-two, omega Frey Porter has already gone through multiple heats without an alpha. He’s desperate to find a mate, but his sire Monte Porter won’t settle for just any alpha for his only omega son. Frey will one day access a sizable trust fund—no gold diggers allowed into the wealthy Porter family. When Frey insists younger alpha Gaven Freel is his bondmate, Monte is skeptical about the pairing. And Gaven’s parents are skeptical right back, worried Monte might use the situation to punish Gaven for decades-old hurts.


Monte surprises everyone by negotiating a fair financial agreement that limits Gaven’s access to Frey’s trust fund and by allowing them to mate. Gaven has no interest in money, only in being the best alpha possible to Frey, and with Frey’s next heat months away, they have plenty of time to date and get to know each other. Frey is intimidated by Gaven’s huge extended family, but he also adores their camaraderie and genuine love for each other. Frey wants his future to be with the Freels.


Gaven is busy making plans for their life together when the unthinkable happens—Monte serves Gaven with papers dissolving the mating agreement. Papers Frey signed, too, and stands by. Devastated by losing his bondmate, Gaven sinks into a deep depression even his best friends can’t get him out of. But Frey also has a terrible, life-altering secret he’s keeping from Gaven, and he’ll have to learn to trust in the strength of the mating bond in order to save them both from darkness.





Author's Note: 'Save Me' is the first book in the brand-new “Finding Free” omegaverse series, which is a spin-off of the fan-favorite “Breaking Free” series.


Book Review

A spin-off series to the author’s ‘Breaking Free’ omegaverse world, this first book in ‘Finding Free’ is filled with reconnecting to beloved characters and seeing how the second generation is faring.

 

Gaven is the adopted alpha son of betas Serge and Dex whose story was featured in ‘Stronger’. Gaven is now nineteen, just finished his first year of university, and across a room senses his bondmate. Frey is the omega son of Monte Porter whom Serge, Dex, and Tarek had some difficulties with way back when. Monte does not come across well in the initial parts of this story, but he comes from a long line of privileged and conservative alphas. However, it doesn’t take long to see how much he loves his children, all of them regardless of gender.

 

“After Sire left the conservatory, Frey closed his eyes and allowed a few tears to slip down his cheeks. Gaven had been his greatest dream come true, and now Frey was setting him free. Free to find another omega, a different life. A partner more worthy of his love and kindness.

A life far, far away from Frey Porter.”

 

I’m not going to really touch on what happens in this story mainly because I feel as if the blurb has basically said everything there is to say. In my opinion, Gaven and Frey are both wonderful young men and definite examples of the changes in gender relations that are slowly being seen within the province. Gaven may be an alpha, but being raised by betas—and having a huge found family full of all types of different genders—means he is definitely NOT old-school when it comes to his opinions about alphas and omegas. Frey is surprised and thrilled that his bondmate will not restrict him to the old ways. Gaven and Frey have a fairly predictable stumble along the way and it certainly shows how much further the politics and attitudes of the populace still need to come.

 

I really loved this novel and am looking forward to reading all of the books in the series. This is a world that I cherish and being given the opportunity to see the grown children of beloved characters find their happy ever afters is a true gift.
