When you make an enemy of a man like Vitaly Karahalios, there is nowhere on earth you can go to escape his wrath. He'll find you. He found me, he found Roth. He found Layla.
He found us, and now the unthinkable has happened. Someone I love has been kidnapped.
This isn't a fairy tale.
Not everyone will get a happily ever after.
Sometimes we can't just walk away from the past.
Love doesn't always save the day.
The beast won't always get his beauty.
But maybe, just maybe we can get our happy ending.

I listened to the Audiobook of Omega and I absolutely loved Summer Roberts narrating this. Her ability to portray each character so well is a gift! She handled the girls especially well and she was a joy to listen to. If you have not read Alpha-book one, or Beta-book two, go back and start there. It is essential to understand how the characters are where they are in Omega.
Well, I have to say this book was much different than I expected it to be. Given the way the other books rolled out, I was expecting the same type of book-even amped up from those. I enjoyed Omega-loved it even, but I felt it didn’t wholly fit the series.
Kyrie St. Clarie and Valentine Roth are in hiding from Roth’s former mentor and mob boss, Vitaly. Vitaly is out for revenge after what was done to his family-even though it was started by his family. Anyone and everyone close to Kyrie or Roth is on Vitaly’s target list. No one is safe.
Layla Campari is Kyrie’s best friend and was whisked away by Nicholas Harris-head of security for Roth, from her life to be with Kyrie on their boat the Eliza, for her protection.
Even with security being extremely tight, Kyrie and Roth have settled into there extravagant lifestyle. Layla is starting to go stir crazy. She’s used to being busy with school and multiple jobs-not just lay around sunning herself every day! Kyrie suggests she let off a little steam with Harris, but Layla plays it off. Harris is hard and unyielding. Dedicated to his job, he doesn’t dilly-dally with clients so it’s not even on the table!
Vitaly strikes and Layla is taking hostage. Harris and Roth try to figure out where Vitaly takes her-but she’s virtually vanished. This is where we get to know Layla on a personal level. I have to say she’s a hard-core but hilarious woman. She credits her abilities to growing up in Detroit and that shit makes you real! I am in love with her! I was cracking up at some of her words and she is incredibly resourceful in a pinch! Even though her upbringing was just awful, she has a comical way about how she handles herself and life. The whole Bic pen scene had me laughing so hard!
Although it went in a much different direction that the other two in the series, Omega was well-written and a brilliant read. Tons of gun blazing action and of course over-the-top sex scenes! A couple went on rather long but they were scorching hot to read! I only have one negative, and that is the Vitaly ending. It seemed anti-climatic considering the story thus-far. I didn’t know what to expect, but I wanted more for that.
Overall, the Alpha series is definitely worth your time to read! I am glad to see Harris is getting a spin-off series based on his Alpha One Security! That will offer us plenty of gun toting stories to get your blood pumping I am sure! Plus some much needed check-ins with the characters from the Alpha series that we have grown to love!
