Ties That Bind
by Susi Hawke, Crista Crown
Kirt Graves (Narrator)
In a world where the rules are gray and the Don’s word is a law unto itself, only one thing is sacred… family.
A Team A.L.P.H.A. and Alphabits spin-off series
Tony Peterson has seen friend after friend find their mate, including his brother, but he’s pretty much given up on it happening for him, especially since he’s not a typical alpha. It’s okay though, he has his son Dexter and a great job helping shifter kids heal and navigate the system. What more could he want?
Joey Novak had to fight his way through a lot of prejudice to be seen as equal to all his alpha brothers, and he doesn’t regret a minute of it. Living on the wrong side of the law means you have to make your own, anyway. As long as he doesn’t wonder if he’ll ever find an alpha who will be the perfect match for him, he’s completely happy with his life.
Fate always strikes when you’re looking the other direction, and when a kid under the Novaks’ protection ends up in the system, Tony and Joey’s paths cross, and the two men from opposite sides of the law have to discover whether true love is enough when their values are so different. With a baby on the way, they don’t have much time to find an answer. But what if that answer is that they’d be better apart?
This is the second book in this mpreg mafia series. Get ready for a world ruled by the Don’s iron fist, unique interrogation tactics, and a family that stands together… no matter what. You can expect to find naughty, knotty scenes of steamy passion, along with a lot of potty-mouth language and more violence than you’re used to from us. But at its heart, you’ll still find all the fluffy mpreg feels and crazy antics you’d look for from Susi Hawke and Crista Crown.
(The Family Novak #2)
MMy Thoughts and Review:
I haven’t read the Alpha-bits Series yet, but I can say you don’t have to, to enjoy the Novak Clan and their extended family and friends. While these bear shifters live their lives wading in a pool of morally ambiguous shades of gray, they believe in saving children, women, and always being there for each other, no matter the sacrifice.
In this story, Joey Novak is in the minority in his clan because he is an omega among numerous alphas. While Joey’s father and brothers love him and never made him feel less than, Joey was harder on himself, always believing he had to prove himself to his family.
Once Joey meets his mate, an alpha who happens to be a social worker and single dad, Joey must tame his brusqueness or risk losing the sensitive alpha and little boy he grows to cherish. Tony and his young son Dex have already been through so many trials and tribulations, Tony won’t jeopardize Dexter’s happiness even if it costs him his own.
This omegaverse is everything you’d expect from a Susi Hawke/ Crista Crowne collaboration. Siblings who have inside jokes, doting parents and grandparents, loads of adulting sMMexy things, cute kids, and tender moments to give you warm fuzzies, and who doesn’t like those?
Bring on the next one! This one ended with a “What the…” so I’m looking forward to what happens next!
