Edwin is speeding to Davey's volleyball in Johnny Omega's Lambo, you know, as one does, when he gets pulled over by a gorgeous alpha cop, Rex. Edwin is all sassy and flirty with Rex, and Rex pretty much likes it. But they both figure that they will never see each other again.
But then, Rex decides to apply for a security position at Omegaverse, and they have an encounter of the intimate kind, which makes both of them think about what their lives are going to be like.
Rex and Edwin are really sweet together, and I was so glad to see Higgins being his normal Higgins self and doing what he does. I have to admit, Higgins is cool af. But back to Rex and Edwin, they are really sweet together and I love how Rex is with Davey.
Second, the conversations are sometimes quite clever. Edwin's and Higgins's sass usually made me laugh, and their humor saved the day a lot with this story. The opening scene was brilliant...funny and smart, and it made me hope that the rest of the story would be just as cleverly handled. It wasn't. Rex Harliss is an interesting character and could have been much better developed with more attention to his integrity as well as his heart of gold. But there was too much of a rush to get him and Edwin together. The next time they meet, after the court appearance, they are rutting like wild animals. Then the time after that, they're having a deep convo about commitment to a permanent relationship because Edwin is pregnant. The writer attempts to ensure that we don't see this as insta-love — even though the 'L' word is said after the fifth in-the-flesh meeting! — by indicating the passage of time (it had been a month before they saw each other the second time, for example), but then he completely negates that effect by also letting us know they hadn't even spoken to each other during that month. So the time distance means nothing, and it IS insta-love after all.
Then, I found that there was just no reason for the story. Nothing happened; there was no real problem, not even when Rex's boss tried to trick him into staying on the force by lying about what Charlie had said years earlier. That almost-problem is easily solved by Higgins's revelation about his friendship with Charlie and what he knows about him. So, issue resolved, crisis averted, decision made. And then the rest of the book is just a lot of sappy-sweet wedding and baby-delivery stuff...a great HEA for a not-so-great story.
Sometimes, it almost felt as though this was story was written just to give Edwin his HEA without having to exert too much effort to make his story 'real'. In fact, on more than one occasion, I wondered why Edwin, a hulking 6' 5" giant of a muscle-bound guy, was being made to look like a wimpy, needy person instead of the strong, tough, capable, intelligent omega that he is. It wasn't a good look for one of the main characters.
Overall, this is between a 2 and a 3, and I bumped it up because of the few quality moments.
I was incredibly intrigued by the premise and this story had so much potential...but I'm sad to say that it didn't live up to it. So many inconsistencies. The descriptions are profuse, cheesy, and cringe-worthy...I mean, "tangy crotch musk" might appeal to some and it's entirely accurate, but really? I think it would turn the majority of us off to read that description. There was no romantic build-up to speak of, just a strange sexual encounter followed by vacillating emotions, inconsistent assertions, and ever-lasting love...not in any way believable. I'm pretty sure this story suffered from way too many ideas and not enough self-editing, focus, or centralizing the story.
Beautiful story and read!
