I read this on KU and had to buy it!!
Note that this is book 2 in the series and it's best read after Saved.
In book 1 we met Kell (Braun's brother). Kell is an omega mated to a very abusive alpha who he is accused of murdering.
Ronin, an alpha lawyer and childhood friend of Kell has been asked to represent Kell.
Note that this book mentions the physical and emotional abuse that Kell suffers at the hands of several alphas. My heart cried for Kell hoping that he gets his HEA.
AM Arthur did an amazing job with this book.
If Omegaverse is your thing, this book will not disappoint!
The reason it loses a star (really only half a star) is because it really deeply annoyed me that towards the end, after hearing many times how Kell the omega wouldn't survive if he had to go to prison (as in physically, not just psychologically), all of a sudden he wants to accept a plea deal that he assumes will result in at least a small amount of time in prison!? And he thinks to himself that he'll hate it but he'll survive, and that his alpha Ronin will stop anyone from hurting him. To me this just came across as quite stupid, unthinking and overlysimplified, compared to the complexities of the rest of the book. There are no omega prisons or omega wards in prison because Kell would be the first omega to go to prison, so he likely goes in with the general prison population as he first assumed he would, which is why he first believed (quite rightly) that he'd not survive a week. Alternately, he gets locked in a solitary area, and then who's to stop the guards from raping and abusing him? What's his alpha going to be able to do to protect him from prison attacks? Nothing! Not to mention that the Senior Iverson, despite being apprehended himself, still has a lot of wealth and influence and the ability to make something "happen" to him if he chooses to, and prison would be the easiest place on earth for him to arrange this to happen in! The whole idea was ridiculous and illogical and interferred with my enjoyment of the book.
I really liked Ronin but I loved Kell. This was at times heartbreaking but was gripping to read. Once again this series had me turning the pages eager to see what happened next.

As stated, I've not read an Alpha/Omega (A/O) type story before, as my dislike of stereotypes made me assume (correctly as I have discovered) that I would find the story uncomfortable. To me, A/O stories sit too close to the role of women over the centuries/millennia, and to be honest (no offence intended out there to others), the role exhibited in this world by AM Arthur confirms this. The lack of rights, the assumed role (all Omegas just long to be a parent & that's their goal in life), the total dismissal of their wants, education, goals 'outside the home', even down to taking the Alpha's (husband's) name - it's the obliterated role women have been forced to endure (though I appreciate for some it's a fit) since time & memorial. This is something I as a reader, do not want to read.
So, as I say, it's not a bad story, I just hate stereotypes - by this I mean - society's forcing of a person into a role which is then enshrined in law & values. No thanks, not for this reader - there are enough stereotypes in real life.
I was hooked on seen from beginning to end I couldn't put the book down I loved it so much
Iam so looking forward to what's next
