Prince Killian's father, the alpha of Whitewood pack, is desperate for their royal lineage to continue. The pressure for Killian to find a mate is a heavy burden on his shoulders. It’s a burden he doesn't want - especially when his father forces him to choose an omega mate on the spot during a pack-wide televised broadcast.
Scout is a desperate omega stuck at the bottom of the social ladder. He has no money, a dead-end job, and worst of all, no mate. The only thing he has is a crazy idea. He’s only got one shot to grab Prince Killian’s attention – and no backup plan if it fails.
When their eyes meet, neither one can deny the spark between them - but is a spark enough to get them through the danger that lies ahead?

I found this via one of the events in the FB group. I love adding to my new authors and books to-read list! They GROW! MUHAHAHA! Yeah, I know. I'm weird but weird people are fun...soooo.
Scout is a nobody but he's brave and bold. I like boldness in an omega. He takes a huge risk with his inadvisable plan but desperation and hope drive him. Killian is a prince who isn't blind to his father's faults. He's a good man with a compassionate heart. I love Scout and Killian. Scout's bravery saves lives and makes things better for others. He is an omega to be proud of and look up to. Killian is an equal-minded alpha. He doesn't see Scout as below him, although he does have an alpha's need to protect his omega.
I didn't love the fight scenes. The Whitewood pack was easily ambushed, no matter if it was one or two or a group of them. In the ending fight scene, the author has Scout surrounded by a ton of people but the antagonist alpha somehow gets the jump on all of them. Yet sentences later, the alpha is described as being less than agile to say the least. It seemed contradictory to me that he could be incredibly quick one second and then an old, grizzled alpha slowed by laziness and age.
This is a great story if you are looking for a quick read. I read it in no time flat. I didn't lose interest, which can be a problem for me at times. Reading several books at once is not unknown to me; I do it often. This book feels like a complete story, which is important for a shorter story. No one wants to be left wanting, especially when you'll never get closure. Could it be fuller and more in depth? Absolutely but it works at the length it is. I feel like I could snap out a whole series in no time if the books are all this length. I look forward to more of the Whitewood pack series and Hawke Oakley.
