Sienna Michaels has been waiting for her invitation to the Bonding Trials forever.
It’s her opportunity to match with an alpha pack and show off her training as an omega. But when she’s matched with the Cohen pack, Sienna gets a lot more than she bargained for at their Bonding ceremony.
Tristan, Jax, Logan and Gray Cohen are Sienna’s Soul Bonded fated mates.
Destiny. Made for each other.
Except… they don’t seem that bothered.
In fact, they don’t want her at all. They want someone else.
Sienna has no choice but to work through the Bonding Trials and try to get to know her reluctant alphas.
She needs to pass her Trials to be able to stay with the Cohen pack, and if she doesn’t…
Well. She might be Denied.Rejected matesSoul Bonded fatedOW dramaHeat traumaBuckets and buckets of tearsEmotional damage
Leaning against the bar, I’m lost in my own world when there’s a bump from behind me, the last of my lemonade spilling out down my silver satin top and making me jump back, hitting a hard body.
“Oh, I’m sor—”
My words break off as textured hands gently grasp the top of my arms. A warm huff of breath lands on my head. A choked sound follows.
My feet root to the floor even as I lean into the heat of a total stranger. What is wrong with me tonight?
I can’t help but take deep, gulping breaths of his scent. Whoever this is, he’s clearly an alpha.
An alpha who smells freaking amazing, like the earth after rainfall. Petrichor.
I suck it down like oxygen, even as my breathing speeds up and I feel lightheaded. The hands resting on my arms rub up and down, gently soothing me, the alpha curving himself over me as whispered words brush my ear.
“Turn around, sweetheart. I need to see your face.”
There’s a familiar rasping undertone to his words, but I’m still lost in his scent. Spinning, I press myself into a broad chest, my nose seeking the touch of bare skin left open at the top of his dark shirt. My hands slide up, gripping the collar of his shirt as I breathe deeply, and his head drops to the crook of my neck as he breathes in.
His growl reverberates through my bones, settling deep in my chest with a harsh tug.
It’s want, it’s longing, it’s straight-up lust like I’ve never felt before in my life.
And as he moves back, for the first time in my life I let out a long, needy whine.
It can’t be.
But as my head clears and I yank myself back to stare into impossibly familiar, widened violet eyes, I know there’s no mistake.
Jax Cohen isn’t just my future alpha.
He’s my damn Soul Bonded.
Evelyn Flood is addicted to books - specifically, reverse harem and omegaverse. She spends her time browsing book groups for recs and adding them to her never-ending TBR, where she promptly forgets about them and then goes back to the book groups for more recs. You'll never see her without a cup of tea and on weekends she likes to dance and drink espresso martinis.
If you like protective, growly alphas, vulnerable omegas who aren't afraid to stand up for themselves, and LOTS of knotting, nesting, and naughty scenes, then settle in.
