All his life, Bram’s been told what he would be, and what he would do. No one ever gave a thought to what Bram might think he wanted. There was only one career option for an omega—a mating and pups and looking after the household. But Bram wants more. He wants adventure and excitement and romance, and something different than looking after pups for the rest of his life. He ...more

This was a fun continuation of the series. The start was a lot heavy on the emotional side, so much so that I had tears in my eyes. But it slowly got lighter on the load and I enjoyed my time reading it.

There weren't too many details about what was happening in the general world of the shifters, but that was fine with me. The story of the MCs was what was the most important thing here.

A lot many typographical mistakes, and some time-consistency issue, but, oh well, considering that there is stil

Bram, Bram, Bram. I didn’t know whether I was going to love his character or want to throttle him for his behaviour during this story. In the end it was a bit of both; he kept me on my toes, but in an engaging and eventually loveable kind of way.

As the sole omega of the Mercy Hills pack, seventeen year old Bram may have been intelligent and capable of more than he was given credit for, but he was also naïve and extremely spoiled. Unlike other omegas from the series, like Jason and Bax,

The 'Mercy Hills Pack' series has been an unexpected delight and I was so excited when book three released. This author really knows how to write an impressive world that keeps some of the shifter rules but takes others and turns them upside down. In this series she's created a world where humans know about shifters, but the shifters all live on their own compounds, and in order to travel outside their walls they have to have papers to get through human security checkpoints. The shifters are als ...more

I may have overdosed on mpreg. Probably shouldn't have read them all back to back.

I love this author and the 2 series she is writing. They have substance, plot, characterization, romance, and are just wonderful to read when there is so much crap and nonsense out there in the mpreg/shifter/alpha&omega world.

I think the second book is still my favorite in the series so far, but I still loved this. I LOVED Duke. Talk about perfection in how he treated Bram and the entire situation. And it was a...tough situation, but he handled it so well and I just loved his unwavering lov

3.5 Stars- very abrupt ending. Lots of stuff left unresolved that I am assuming will be dealt with in the next story. I love this series but I felt like this story was lacking a bit.

For Those of you Who Love Mpreg Romances This is One of the Best

I can't believe that this author keeps getting better with each book. Every time I think Ann Katrin has reached her pinnacle, then I begin to read the next book in this incredible shifter series...Mercy Hills Pack. The main characters were two whose story I'd anticipated. The big sweet, but outwardly tough teddy bear, Duke is someone who deserved a loving mate. He was always there for his friends, their children (pups), and of cours

This is Bram and Duke's story and the third book in the series. Bram is young, foolish and flirtatious, trying to attract Duke's attention with silly games and Duke steadfastly ignoring him because he thinks he's too old. When the proverbial hits the fan, Duke steps up and so they begin.....

There were several things I enjoyed about this book, the establishment of the pack and surrounding world, the ongoing storyline of other pack members and Bram and Duke finally getting together, even though it

Ann-Katrin Byrde's books get better each time. Another wonderful shifter romance from Mercy Hills Pack this time Bram and Duke. Bram's had his eyes on Duke for a long while and his flirting gets him nowhere with the guy as you read in her previous books.

Duke has secretly longed for Bram too, but neither say anything to each other until it's almost too late. With Bram pregnant with another shifter's baby, Duke steps in to claim the one he loves.

Byrde does a wonderful job in this series to bring o

This was my least favorite of the series, mostly because Duke was sooooooo unbelievably amazingly nice and devoted and loyal and unselfish--you get the picture. You see this dynamic pretty often in Het romance, occasionally in M/M, and constantly in fanfic. The protagonist is messed up, difficult, and even selfish, while the romantic lead is endlessly patient and supportive, like that's somehow a good thing. I don't buy it--it's not realistic and even if it were I wouldn't think it was healthy. ...more

Bram and Duke are the best!

I absolutely adored this book. It was an excellent sequel to the previous ones, and while it broke my heart at times, Bram and Duke are perfect for each other. I hated Justin and what he did to Bram, and I hate that Duke didn't get to be that special first, but in the end it didn't matter to the pair.

What made the story even more interesting aside from the relationship was how human/shifted relations are progressing. Bram seems like he will be one of the key pieces i

I love this series.

I love the world building in this series. I've read so many shifter books , at this point, it's nice to see something other than mating. While I love all of the characters in these books, I really enjoyed Bram's story. I also liked that more of the book was set in the human world. Bram and Duke's story starts with Bram becoming pregnant with another's baby. Duke of course is amazing and forgiving. Almost unbelievably. They struggle and have problems, But the end is satisfying

I love the hell out of Duke!

Duke just melts my cynical heart. I wish the world was full of men like his character. I love when the expected turns to delightfully unexpected and he becomes an even greater man in me eyes. Also I love how the author touches on some very real and painful emotions that accompany motherhood (bearerhood) and the guilt, sense of failure or stigma that can accompany the experience. Another great installment in a fantastic series. Especially if you are craving a bit of m

While poking around in Kindle Unlimited, I happened on a number – more like an entire subgenre – of paranormal shapeshifter romance titles described as ABO or Alpha, Beta, Omega. The characters are primarily werewolves (with some exceptions), and structure their lives according to the ABO hierarchy: Alphas are the leaders, strong and aggressive, Betas are the ordinary men and women who make up the bulk of any social group, and then there are the Omegas. Omegas are non-aggressive, even submissive ...more

I spend all day reading, doing none of my chores, 'cos Duke's story as well as Garrick's, that I'm guessing is the next one if I judge by the title, are the ones I most wanted to read.

Alas it wasn't what I was expecting. I mean from the way the second book ended I knew that Bram was literally and figuratively screwed but I was still holding on to a sliver of hope for a last minute rescue but it wasn't to be.

So we have Bram that's in a difficult situation and Duke swooping in to save the day. As

This one had a lot more day to day life detail and could at times be super emotional...with the true pairing payoff a lot further along in the story than the previous two. Still, I just love how AKB inverts known tropes (that play to female stereotypes) and applies them to male characters. From unmated women omegas being sequestered during fertile periods, questions about reproductive choice, expectations after marriage/mating and educating omegas beyond what will make the best home-maker

Another great world building series, but the romance on this one was not front and center. The author had a great promise this time with each MC having a crush on the other but each was unsure if it was reciprocated. And there was some good angst at the start. Then, unfortunately the author skipped right over the good stuff and went straight into mated bliss and babies, with a lot of the same oppression and baby drama as the previous books. There are lots of cute moments between the MCs but the ...more

Amazing series!

I’m always awed when authors are somehow able to redeem nasty/evil/bad characters. And it’s not to say that Bram was nasty/evil/bad, he was just perceived as spoilt and clueless by others. And that kind of makes me think of real life in that, every person you meet has a story and our perception of them may not always be accurate of their actual personality or even circumstance.

It was nice to be in Bram’s head and see the world as he sees it. And it was interesting the way the aut

They keep getting better

As with book two, this is a fully fleshed out story with more details and world building.

Bram came across as a bit of a spoiled youngster in the first two books but here he really comes into his own as a strong and independent young man finding his way through a difficult situation.

Duke's always come across as a stable and calming influence in the Mercy Hills Pack and here he was super sweet and dedicated to making sure Bram's life wasn't ruined by a single mistake.

I'm really enjoying this series and this book is no exception. It's not typical of the gay shifter genre. No Insta love, biting or knotting. The child bearing omegas are feminized, but they have a core of strength and are capable of standing up for themselves relying on their mates support but not hiding behind it. The situation between the shifters and humans is fascinating. The only downside to these books is that the writer puts in too much unnecessary detail which can be a little tedious. Ap ...more

Poor Bram, what he initially went though made me so made. Justin you are just an a&& and I really hope you never do what you did to Bram to another shifter. I loved that Bram & Duke finally got their HEA. Bram was a take charge omega & I loved that about him. He is the perfect match for Duke. I hope that once this series ends, the walls are down and they are living peacefully with the humans.

This is an amazing series. It's not your average shifter story. The author has made a very realistic society. i loved the fact that Bram had some alpha traits and Duke had some omega ones. Best match up so far. I recommend reading all of the books in this series. Can't wait for the next one.

Sensitive and touching

Bram and Duke's story is an especially moving one. Not only are they not idealized perfect Bering's, they deal with some truly emotionally challenging stuff. Be prepared to root for them and cry for them.

Long, too long. This story could have been summoned up in less than 60 chapters. Nice story but with each book why is she not incorporating more of Bax and Jason's story more. Intertwine them more for it to seamlessly flow between books.
