Cover Art: The cover art is interesting. There is a baby sitting, wearing a cowboy hat with a half-naked male torso in the background. I don’t like the half-naked male because the image seems to be just thrown in as it is a romance story. I would have liked to have seen a gorgeous man holding the cute baby instead.

Main Characters:  Griff, an omega who is on the run from his last alpha

                                   Tex, an alpha who helps Griff

The two main characters are very interesting. Tex and Griff are opposites. Griff is a city and party loving omega, who hates everything Tex loves. Tex is a country loving cowboy who loves being out with the farm animals. Neither of them wants a relationship with the other at first, but sometimes romance just happens.

The author created interesting three-dimensional characters with Tex and Griff. Neither man is a stereotype.

Plot: The plot is rather easy to follow. It is a damsel in distress type story although a male in distress.

Writing Style: The narrative is alternating first person, which works well with the story because it gives the reader the individual characters’ thoughts and views of the scenes. I liked the author’s dialogue because it seemed very natural.

Conflict/Climax: Griff and Tex start off their relationship with conflict. First, they argue over a car and who owns it. Tex believes he does but Griff wants it. The second conflict deals with a more serious matter, a domestically abusive alpha. The climax of the story is rewarding. Griff has all his problems resolved and he even gets his happily ever after.

Flow/Continuity: The story does not have any issues with the chapters. The author created a story that moved smoothly from point a to point b without forgetting what happened at the beginning. The characters grow without losing their starting qualities.

Conclusion: I liked this story, but I was concerned that there was no warning about the mention of the domestic abuse involved. I think that there should have been one. Even though a warning was left out in review copy, I still found things to like about Tex and Griff’s story.

For all these reasons, I give this story eight out of 10 stars!
