An Alisa Review: Open Omega and His Bitter Bear (Pariah Pack #4) by Susan Laine



Rating:  3 stars out of 5


open-omega-and-his-bitter-beanAs an omega, Woody Fry balances the unity of his wolf pack and serves as a gardener and healer. He’s an outspoken and optimistic twink who always supports his family and is ever ready to take a leap of faith. An unexpected intrusion into the wolf territory on an autumn’s day brings Woody face to face with a sullen, young coywolf and an equally morose, hostile bear in his prime.


Brown bear Lyss Arthur doesn’t trust anyone, preferring to keep to himself and radiating an air of rage. When the two opposites realize they’re mates, all bets are off. But Lyss isn’t on the market for a mate, so Woody has his work cut out.


Soon the wolf pack learns that the bear and coywolf are on the lam. They’re pursued by a lethal enemy who’ll stop at nothing to get them back. Protecting the bear and his teenage ward might prove deadly for everyone concerned.


Woody is absolutely adorable and so optimistic it’s like a breath of fresh air.  Despite the bad things that have happened in his life he looks for the good in others and situations.  Lyss is grumbly bear who doesn’t feel as though he can see any good in anything anymore.


In this story we can see how much Woody would like to push Lyss, but knows it’s best to wait.  Lyss has trouble seeing how things can get better until it comes down to a confrontation and Woody’s pack stands up for him and the coywolf showing him that they are welcome and loved.  I was rooting for these two the whole time even if Lyss did make a few stupid mistakes and had to be slapped upside the head with the truth for him to see it.


The cover art is very nice and gives a good visual for the characters.
