Leo is the calm guy. The nice guy. The one nobody screws with. So could someone explain that to Meena so she stops driving him insane—with desire.When Meena literally throws herself at Leo and declares he’s her mate, his first reaction is to deny—and run far, far away. This lion/tiger mix doesn’t do drama and chaos. Problem is, once he sets eyes on her, he can’t help but want the vivacious blonde with plus-sized curves, perfect for a big man like himself.He wants her even if it breaks all his rules when it comes to women.Wants her even if she destroys his serenity.Wants her more than a perfectly grilled piece of steak with a dash of garlic, pepper, and salt.Thing is, someone else wants her too.This poor omega is about to have his world turned upside down, which means everyone better watch out because when Leo experiences love, jealousy, and frustration for the first time, he doesn’t just snap—he roars!
When an Omega Snaps is the third book in the adult shifter series, called A Lion’s Pride. I have not read any of the other books in this series, but when I saw the premise for this one, I was just so darn excited for it that I knew I had to read it. From what I can tell each book is on the shorter side, and features a different member of this pride. I wanted to start with Leo’s story because I loved the idea 1) of the pride omega. I had no idea, but omega’s are the peacemakers of the group. Leo is known for being calm and clear headed. I like that because it is such a contrast to how you typically hear shifters described in stories. I thought Eve did an awesome job at painting Leo out to be this levelheaded guy.
And then I love the idea of such a calm force becoming jealous and a bit crazy. I think we all know by now I like my book boyfriends with a touch of possessiveness or a wee bit of a jealous streak. And they extra points if this is out of character for them typically. Because I also love my book boyfriends to be sweet, or at least to have a gooey marshmallow center. With Leo I got the best of both of these worlds. I loved seeing him so out of sorts with Meena.
And Meena was a force all on her own. Oh wow is she forceful and in your face. She was a bit too forward for my liking, but I respected that she went after what she wanted. And she is the complete opposite of Leo, which was fun to watch how they mixed, meshed and even clashed sometimes. When an Omega Snaps is a fun and quick read . People that dislike in your face loud women, might have an issue with Meena, but I thought her big personality worked well in the story. I would love to read more books about Omega’s, and I am interested to see if this is always their role in the pride (or pack) or if this was a new take on Eve’s part.Check out @BookBriefs #Review of When an Omega Snaps by @EveLanglais #PNR Click To Tweet
Leave your thoughts and Omega book recommendations for me in the comments. I am always looking for good shifter books. I have not read too many. Bonus points if you have a calm guy losing his cool over a mate.
