Title: Belligerent Beta
When a human is chosen to lead the pack instead of him, Beta Dan Keller struggles to find his footing in a rapidly changing environment. Committed to his pack and not one to turn away from a challenge, Dan follows his Alpha’s request and works with Nathan Ross, the new pack Omega. Though he is initially concerned that Nathan’s weakness will harm the pack, Dan learns there is more to the shy wolf than meets the eye.
As Dan struggles to balance his growing feelings for the young wolf with his responsibilities to his pack, new threats emerge and Nathan’s loyalty is questioned. Not understanding the basics of being a wolf leaves Nathan vulnerable and the pack at risk. Can Dan embrace the true role of a beta so he can protect the man he has grown to love and save his pack?

Poppy Dennison is back with book two in the Pack Partners series, Belligerent Beta. Dan and Nathan, the story’s featured couple are a lesson in patience, tranquility and love. As the pack beta, Dan has remained aloof and unapproachable; still unhappy at not being chosen as alpha. Soon though, he discovers his role as pack beta just as important and significant as he assists Alpha Lex into the world of the wolves and takes omega Nathan under his wing.
The tenderness portrayed throughout the notoriously gruff beta was sweet and loving. Sensing Nathan’s discomfort and trepidations, Dan’s mission is to make the lovely omega welcome and loved. Ms. Dennison brought tears to my eyes as Dan treated the young man with kid gloves all the while as an equal.
Nathan grew from the timid, unsure omega to a confident young man with the desire to please Dan; the man he hoped to become his mate.
The scenes with the remainder of the pack were funny and continued on the style found in book one, Accidental Alpha, complete with numerous puppy piles.
Tender and gentle- the mantra this reviewer discovered with Belligerent Beta. Sometimes a little left to the imagination goes along way.
A recommended read.
