Book 5. Dean the Omega of Cloverleah and Matthew a Alpha new addition to the pack. Dean is Special, but as he is yet to be mated, his powers haven't come out. Entertaining and Enjoyable.

This book was such a good addition to this series!
Dean is the omega of Kane's pack and is very quiet but strong when it comes to helping protect the pack.
Matthew is a very strong alpha and as soon as he scents Dean he knows he is his mate and he must protect him and care for him.
These two together was really just so sweet! Matthew cares so much about Dean and is so protective of him. The same goes for Dean who feels the same for Matthew.
They have their up and downs while trying to grow as a

I was looking forward to Dean's story and was not disappointed. Matthew was the perfect one for him and just what Dean needed. Someone who was there to support him and allow him to grow and come into his Omega powers. I liked that there was not too much over the top drama, just enough to keep the story moving forward. I am really interested in Jax's story and how that is all going to play out.

This book lost me in the details

I really like the world that the Cloverleah books are based in, but the plots in some of these books get a bit ridiculous. And there are a lot of inconsistencies that pop up.

Shawn's sudden knowledge of just about everything, and Paulo's seeming knowledge of everything that the Fates are doing is just too convenient. Does Gretchen, as a witch, not feel the same intense sexual attraction to her own fated mate? How is it that Damien and Matthew are both over 100, but

And it got better again. I've loved Owen since book one. So glad he finds his mate in Mathew. But as is the case with this pack, it doesn't go smoothly. Plus we get introduced to new characters as well. Happily going to keep following this series.

It's been a while since I read the earlier books in the series, so I was a little bit confused. However, this series has the amazing ability to feel short even tho they are actually all rather larger books.

I loved the story line and can't wait to read the rest of the series. In the beginning there was a lot of detail trying to be thrown in and some of it was confusing. Other than the rush of detail at the beginning in gym that made it hard to follow (I had to read it a couple times to try to get all the characters straight) the book was well written and kept me hooked until the end.

The book shows that people who should not live together, all the Alphas, can when there is someone special t

I didn’t read the first ones in the series, but even if this book can be read as a standalone, after reading Matthew and Dean's story, it’s impossible not to feel drawn to the Cloverleah pack member’s… so yeah, now I must read the first 4 books from this series. Yay!

Dean’s past abuse left him feeling incomplete, and even in the middle of his pack, he still feels like he’s never good enough. Finding Matthew is like having the chance at a new start so it was great to see how Matthew’s support chan

I have to say that Lisa Oliver surprises me more and more with each book in the Cloverleah series. I read a book in the series and I think to my self "it is going to be hard for any other book to beat this one", then Lisa does just that and blows me away with the next book in the series and how each book is so different then the last.

In this book I completely fell in love with both Dean and Matthew.

Finally the one where Dean finds his mate!!!! It was perfect. Matthew was just perfect. Dean has had a rough life. Being an Omega he has always been smaller and weaker. Unfortunately his former Alpha had abused him terribly, so Dean does not trust easily. He is a valuable member of the Cloverleah Pack and he is content with his current life. Until he meets new pack member Matthew. Matthew is an older wolf shifter and has met Omega's in the past. He hates that they have all been abused up until t ...more

Yay! Dean’s story! (Again, I guess you could read these as standalones, but they really read better in order.)

The main story arc with Kylan continues, and his involvement in the Cloverleah pack deepens and centers on Dean, the Omega.

It appears that Dean may be the only Omega left and that once mated he’ll come in to special powers. Luckily, Matthew, an Alpha from another pack wants to move to Cloverleah and they find out they are mates.

What’s really lovely is how wonderfully beautiful it is as D

Four stars!
I really enjoyed this story. I was kind of over the kidnappings pretty quickly though. Four times in one story for the same character is a bit excessive. I loved how Matthew was gentle with Dean at first and let him lead the relationship as Dean got more confident in himself and their bond. I found the lore of the Omegas in the book very fascinating. It was very well thought out and I can tell Dean will be a huge asset to the shifter community, if not the

I really enjoyed this book and it is one of my favorites of the series. The writing has improved some and it felt better edited than the previous books even though there were still mistakes.

I have always been curious about Dean and we learn so much about him and his struggles it broke my heart. Matthew is perfect for him! He is the least alpha personality out of all the Alpha characters and he is the best fit for for Dean.

I do think some of their bonding was rushed while it felt like other are

Typically uber-strong Cloverleah characters, but one’s an abused Omega

The Cloverleah series focuses on extremely powerful male shifters (or other paranormal mates), but this one takes a slightly different tack as one of the partners is an abused, physically weaker (or at least smaller and not overly buff) Omega world shifter. Of course, his partner is one of the strongest Alphas, and the story explores the significant power of the “weak” Omega. Still, it’s a nice addition (along with Scott’s sto

It was time for Dean to get his HEA. The book worked great with the others in the series and it was nice to see all the previous characters involved.

Dean was funny and witty. The plot line was interesting with just enough angst. The new characters introduced were intriguing, as well as the new paranormals.

I just wanted a little intro in the epilogue surrounding Jax and the Faes instead of the information about the Atlanta conflicts. which I know will be related to it anyway.

Looking forward to t
This book is my new favorite in this series. I'm so glad we got to finally got to hear about Dean's past. And I'm even more excited that Matthew was the one for Dean. I lived him in the last book. I really enjoyed reading about their journey to becoming mated pairs. I loved how Matthew gave Dean want he needed when he needed it. I was pretty sad to see it end. So looking forward to Jax's book. I just know it's going to be amazing. Great Job Lisa!!!

So pleased

This book was so good. I loved Dean and Matthew, they were sweet together. There was just enough going on around them to keep it interesting without to much angst between them. If you loved the first two and liked the next two this one is definitely in the love column.
And I am looking forward to number six very much!

Much better overall even with easier ratings standard for a guilty pleasures. Still had editing issues, but it was either better or I'm just used to it. The story had some world originality and held my attention. Definitely could have triggers for sensitive readers. Probably can be read as a stand alone, but I wouldn't suggest it.

My little Dean found his mate, and what a mate. Dean has come into his powers with the help of his alpha mate Matthew. But this pack can never just find their mates and be happy, noooo, someone is always trying to tear a couple apart. In some crazy ways. The one thing I do know is I can't wait, for the next book, this gets better with each book.

This was awesome just like the previous books.... I loved Dean and Matthew was his perfect mate.... I was good to finally get questions answered about what an Omega means and Deans purpose within the pack and shifter community... now I'm geekedd to hear Jak's story!!! BRAVO Ms Oliver

I just loved Dean. I have a soft spot in my heart for guys who are not alpha, but are full of honour, bravery (and hotness).

This book has got to be my favourite of the series so far. I enjoyed every single page. It is the sort of book that you pick up and read again, when you are having a bad day and want to believe that there is good in the world.

couldn't ask for a better mate for dean

I stumbled across the first in this series and fell absolutely in love with how the author brought all the characters to life. I cried when Kane had to fight for Shawn and now Dean found a mate who doesn't rush him but let's him come to him. 5 stars doesn't seem to be enough.

This story was excellent! I love both Dean and Michael individually, and I especially loved Michael FOR Dean.
Many thanks too, to Stephanie the beta reader who was the recipient of the dedication - your efforts were definitely noticed in this book. Great job!

I have read this book like 3 or 4 times but did not realize that I never wrote a review until now. I love this book. Ms. Oliver is one of my favorite authors and I have read everything she has written several times. Well written with kick ass characters. This book is so worth reading.
