Kell Iverson Cross never imagined he’d find so much joy in his life, and he doesn’t take a single moment for granted. His tireless work championing omega rights have made him a bit of a celebrity across the territory, so when his brother Braun suggests Kell be the first omega to run for public office, Kell doesn’t say no right away. It’s a huge risk to their family, though, and Kell isn’t sure the political statement is worth it. It may be more change than the traditionalist citizens of Sansbury are ready for—especially the ones who’ve already painted a target on Kell’s back.
Demir Higgs is barely staying afloat with both university exams and the upcoming medical school entrance test. Add in spending time with his younger brothers, cultivating his relationship with his two boyfriends, and winning over a grieving ten-year-old? He’s exhausted in the best way, because Demir is happy, healthy and in love with two amazing men—men he isn’t always sure truly need him in their lives.
Brandt Lars’s greatest wish came true when his missing bondmate Oliver and their son Eriq came back into his life. Eriq is still grieving the death of his beloved uncle, and he’s standoffish with Demir. But their family is trying to come together—as well as come out to more of their friends as an alpha/omega/beta triad. But when Oliver’s traditionalist parents refuse to accept Demir and threaten to take Eriq away, Demir can’t help wondering if it’s time for him to back out of their relationship for good…
Settle in for the final full-length installment of the BREAKING FREE series, where an accidental secret, a possible surprise pregnancy, a blast from the past, and an unexpected kidnapping combine to shake up the lives of everyone Kell and Demir know and love. But they’ll survive these challenges and changes the same way they always do: as a united and loving family.
NOTE: This is a non-shifter Omegaverse story with alpha/omega/beta dynamics, heats, knotting, mpreg, and MMM pairings. In this world, omegas are second-class citizens, but they are working toward gaining more civil rights and protections under the law. Series warnings for mentions of past physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. This series is best read in numerical order.
I’m really kind of sad that this series is ending. I had never read an “omegaverse” book before, but since I will read anything AM Arthur writes, I was all in from book 1. The huge arc finishes up here with book 8. And while this book didn’t technically give us a new romance, it did help solidify the romance between Demir, Brandt and Oliver as well as tie up a few loose ends.
Book 7 brought the three men together. But book 8 follows them as they navigate this relationship. Not only between themselves, but also their friends, family, jobs and conservative society they live in.
There is also a side story of Kell running for mayor as the last one was ousted due to a scandal. What is noteworthy is that Kell is a beta with very few rights- running for mayor will cause an uproar.
The first half of the book was a little slow, but it also wrapped up a bunch of story lines. We got to see the different men and where they were in their lives, knowing that they all got their happily ever afters. After that the focus is really on the “throuple”.
There is a bit of drama that comes about- which also helps bring them together AND wrap up the last little loose end in the whole arc.
The story was really satisfying without being to drawn out. I feel so invested in these guys that I am happy to know that they are all happy.
And apparently we will get to see them again- once their children start dating! Gah! I was there when they were all born! hahahahahaha
