Hunted By The Omega by S. Rodman

A murderous omega and an Alpha that can't seem to stay away. How can Jake want to be closer to Fitz when he can't trust him? An omega raised by hunters is a disaster for Jake, but the heat between them can't be denied. Hunted By The Omega is another standalone in the interconnected world that S. Rodman has created.

From the blurb:

An omega raised to hunt and hate his own kind. An alpha who lost his pack to hunters.

There were always going to be fireworks when wolf shifters Fitz and Jake met. Neither were expecting that sort.

Though when Fitz lures Jake into a trap, that’s exactly what happens.

Jake defeats the humans, but as he is fighting Fitz, he accidentally throws him into heat. The omega has no idea what is happening to his body and Jake doesn’t want to deal with it, so he scopes the boy up and attempts to drive back to his pack to give the problem to his Alpha.

But the journey is long and the heat is strong.

The problems don’t end there though. Once back at the packhouse, Fitz continues to be a murderous little chaos goblin.

One that Jake just can’t seem to stay away from.

Hunted by the Omega contains enemies to lovers, hurt/comfort, misuse of a cucumber and an omega who goes a little feral during his heat.

Jacquie's Review:

I couldn't put Hunted By The Omega down. Once I started, I just kept going until it was done.
It's a standalone but has characters from other books since this is an interconnected universe. Loved those cameos.

Jake and Fitz are both really flawed characters. Jake does some stuff that skirts the line, but never with bad intentions. It was impossible not to like him. There were times I wanted to shake him, though. 

Fitz was complicated. His background was dark, but he also does questionable things. I had a great deal of sympathy for him.

Each of the characters, while flawed, had redeeming qualities, and that made for an entertaining read.

Pretty steamy with some action. Loved it,

SNik's Review:

Standalone set in author’s Darkstar Pack universe. Paranormal Alpha/omega. Enemies to lovers. Single POV/some dual POV. 

Alpha Jake doesn’t expect the beautiful omega to lure him into his almost-murder, but when Jake is able to turn the tables, he’s stuck with a prisoner going through his first heat. Fitz was raised by hunters, believes all shifters are monsters and doesn’t understand his attraction to Jake, so he keeps trying to kill him. 

Of course, there is lust and spicy heat that both Jake and Fitz try to avoid, but underneath there starts to be feelings of empathy, caring and safety between them. Some explanation and communication would have resolved their antagonism much faster, and Jake is the typical clueless Alpha, while Fitz is no ordinary omega and can hold his own in a fight. 

Entertaining read, some cameos, some steamy times, and two shifters that make their own way to an HEA.

Jacqueleen the Reading Queen's Review:

Hunted by the Omega takes place in the same universe as The Darkstar Pack. Somehow I didn't realize this and was delightfully surprised when Silas himself popped up as part of the plot. I mean, really, I should have expected it. How often would Silas get the chance to meet another omega as bloodthirsty as him? I'd have pegged it as impossible, and yet I would have been wrong.

Fitz was raised by hunters from a pup. I don't know if raised is even the right word. They treated him horrifically. I mean, he'd never even used silverware before Jake brought him to his pack. His entire life was spent being abused and brainwashed that his own kind were monsters. It takes times to reverse that type of indoctrination, hence the multiple attempts at murdering the one man who has been trying to help him, Jake.

Despite all the attempts on his life, Jake is drawn to Fitz. He is constantly warring with himself and his wolf. He wants to protect Fitz and keep him close, but he also worries he is taking advantage of a vulnerable victim. That Fitz only wants him because he was the first person to show him kindness. There are definite miscommunication issues here, and a lot of it is due to the fact that Fitz has no idea about shifter life. Honestly, he broke my heart when he kept thinking he was going to get beaten for everything. He was braver than he gave himself credit for. Thankfully Jake pulls his head out of his ass and realizes he needs to be clear of his intentions with Fitz if he wants him not to misunderstand things anymore and we finally get to see these two wolves get their HEA.
