Jason, the protagonist, is a really smart omega. He had terrible teenage years, but that only made him stronger, more confident, and brave. Mac, on the other hand, is a typical Alpha, however, it doesn’t diminish the impact of the story, the opposite happens, the dynamic of the couple gets better because of that.
They live in a world where omegas are treated as less than everyone else, where they are considered dumb and are only seen as wombs. We see them fighting for their love and against the system that has been imposed by society. In the surface, this seems as another mpreg story, but it goes deeper than that.
We meet several secondary characters that are equally charming and who enrich the story. This is a must read for any mpreg fan. You will not regret it.
Jason has been running for six years when he decides enough is enough. His father is injured, and their lifestyle is no longer feasible. Sooner or later they are going to be caught – either by Montana Border pack members or the human authorities. Jason comes to the conclusion that is better to decide his own fate, and make a deal with an Alpha that will provide his father and himself protection as well as some measure of happiness for himself. And this decision is the start of a beautiful love story and the opening scene to the fantastic Mercy Hills saga.
I’ve read this book and listened to the audio multiple times, and each time I read it or listen, I love it more. The writing duo of Ann-Katrin Byrde have created such an intricate and dynamic world. Each character, whether it’s a main character or supporting character, is richly developed with depth and texture. The writing style is smooth, vibrant, and detailed. The plot seems simple at first: an Omega running away from an evil Alpha only to find love – yet it’s not. Ann-Katrin Byrde bring so many other elements into the plot that it’s not simple, but setting the stage for the bigger, over-arching series plot. This may sound a little intimidating, but don’t worry, the plot may be intricate, but it’s not complicated or hard to follow, and the love story is still center stage.
Nick J. Russo is a perfect narrator for this series. He does an amazing job with embodying the characters and making the action scenes even more thrilling. I enjoy his performance immensely.
This is a fantastic series and I highly encourage anyone who enjoys well-written Omega-verse books to pick this up.
Mac is a strong alpha, head of security for the pack. He and Jason hit it off but to their understanding, Jason is not for him. Yet they develop a friendship and one of trust. Jason is feeling safe until his old pack comes knocking.
Mating the Omega is a step above the other alpha and omega stories. It is well thought out and has an interesting take on human / wolf relations. Pack law comes into play and of all things it isn't settled by shifter court. No, it is taken to the humans.
There were a few questions I had which may be addressed in the follow up story. Jason didn't know he had powers. Those around him knew but didn't tell him. So as a reader I'm guessing what they are and if it's more than calming others and being able to ignore an alpha's power of suggestion. Was it an ability to grow plants? And if true omegas was researched, why isn't Jason informed? Shouldn't he be learning who he is as well as what he can do?
Another problem I had was that last scene with Orvin, Jason's old alpha. Orvin was only distracted by Jason's fighting back. Orvin wasn't incapacitated, laying on the ground and dying. Oh no, Orvin was able to get up and go after Jason . . And yet he didn't. There's no conclusion on what happened. Duke and Abel were there with Mac and no mention of Orvin. Since the plot was based around Orvin and his henchmen you'd think there would be conclusion on what happened to the guy. And if it was Jason casting his omega powers in a 'I hope he doesn't find me' and his wish came true. .. Then that should be said. But it's not. So I'm left guessing. . . . I mean if Mac could shift and scent Jason to track Jason down, then why didn't Orvin?
Ditto what another reviewer said: What's the difference between a regular omega and a true one? I read a lot of shifter stories and even I couldn't tell the difference. If a true omega has powers then they should be detailed. If that's the only difference between a true and regular omega - Besides having more heats during the year - Then say so. Is Bram a 'regular' omega?
There were a few gaps in the story's world building. I wondered more about the pack set up and technology -- I wasn't sure exactly what Alpha Abel was making or what contracts he had. Obviously the pack area had solar use. Did Alpha Abel work for a human company? Or was he working with wolves? How did he get his pack to the financial stability they have?
Yes this story involves mpreg and that happens for a good portion of the story. It was a good read, interesting, not gripping, just a nice even read if you're into shifters and the alpha and omega trope. - Dan's Wife

This one was slightly different but reassuring similar in some areas (I hate it when an author writes basic facts differently even though they are written by every one else in the same consistent way).
All shifter stories have lots of sex, this one actually didn't until well over half way through. It had a captivating story line which included, but was more than, werewolves running at full moon and having sex.
I love Jason, one of the MC's if not THE MC. I loved the way he had two sides and one came out through thoughts and one through his mouth. He was feisty, loving, intelligent, caring ...... everything you'd expect from an omega but with an Alpha edge. Obvusly brought about by circumstance, but regardless, very entertaining.
The only bit that annoyed me just enough to mention but not to take away from the 5🌟's and that was the change of point of view at many of the chapters. First Jason, then Abel, then Jason, then Mac etc etc not that I disliked the different view points, I love stories written like that. Here it was difficult to determine whose pov you were reading until you had read a bit of the chapter and picked up the line of thought of what was said. That could easily have been improved, imo, by stating at the start of each chapter whose pov it was.
That said I thoroughly enjoyed this despite not having a recommendation and not having read any of this author's work before. I will be correcting that oversight immediately and as well as reading the rest of this series, I will look at her other books and keep an eye out in the future.
I would highly recommend this even if you have never read mm shifter before or if you have, but didn't really enjoy it, cos this book is different to the 'norm', definitely has a strong story line and good well written, MC's with lots of personality.
The begining made me want to bang the character's heads together. I mean, everyone could see they'd be perfect together, except them.
Then came the trial. I really wanted the old alpha to be killed in some freak accident at some point, but he servives, to lose.
A great read and highly recommended.
I love shifter stories, this was a little different as it entered on the omega not the alpha.
The only gripe I had was it accident was skimmed over and not enough info was given but it wasn't enough to deter me. Still enjoyed it.
It is the kind of story that you can read to relax. It has the good guys, the bad guys, some unforeseen love, a little angst and a lovely happy ending. Not too many plot twists and it is written a simple style.
In a world of too many books this is a lovely one to relax with and a very enjoyable first book in a series that I intend to continue with.
If you like shifter, Mpreg and great stories, do not miss this series
great story plot (I like the character development)
