werebear reckless spirit Reviews
Heat Level: 3 flames out of 5Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5ARC provided by Author in exchange for an honest review. Book reread and review rewritten (June 15, 2016).An omega on the run and an Alpha with an escape plan.Ori never wanted to be just an omega. He rebelled against what everyone stood for. A prized possession to be used, abused then impregnated. Soap. Rinse. Repeat. His plan to escape was deterred by an Alpha from his hometown. Fighting his way to freedom he got some help from another person. Haunted & Free.Siv was a prince among men, er, shifters. Literally. He was running away from the life that was set out for him. Rescuing Ori turned out to be his lucky charm. The man was as prickly as a porcupine. But once they started spending more time together, the men form an easy camaraderie, and the uneasiness melts away. It is when Ori goes through his first heat in years that Siv proves just how much he is willing to protect the man.Surprises come in small packages. Falling in love happened upon them. Siv and Ori fought the obstacles to be together and in the end, hard decisions made their HEA one worth reading about. Reviewed by Cee from Alpha Book Club
3 Stars for this Curious Take on ShiftersOkay, this one wasn’t a favorite, I must admit, but there were aspects that I really did enjoy. I liked that the omega had spirit and wasn’t just a roll-over-and-take-it kind of shifter. I liked that Siv was willing to do what he needed to in order to ensure Ori was safe - even from Siv, when needed. The plot to this started really well, but then it went over the top for me. Now, please note that I have not read the first book in the series, so perhaps I’d have been better warned if I had and maybe it would have changed things, but I don’t know, and I’m not particularly invested in finding out. The traipsing around and about and the hidden identities and the plot twist and the incredibly abrupt end left me cold. I’m not entirely sure there was an HEA on this story, just because of how it ended. There is definitely an HFN, but we’ll have to see how things progress, if the author elects to take this couple forward.Review copy of Werebear: Reckless Spirit provided by the author, Noah Harris, for an honest review.
fell in love with Ori and Siv the first time around in Werebear Trace. This time round the story has been lovingly fleshed out and completed with Noah’s usual passion and heat.Ori hates Alphas and has an inherent distrust of Siv. Siv doesn’t want Ori to know about his past and where he came from. As a result the two of them dance around each other, and their growing feelings, for a long time.Although the book starts very much as the original did it soon becomes clear there is much more depth to the story and details that were glossed over before are now brought to life, particularly the building relationship between the two.It’s like they accidently fall deeper and deeper until their ‘love’ is inevitable. The way Siv cares for Ori through his heat and all the little signs of his growing emotions and the way Ori’s respect for Siv overtakes his mistrust of Alphas, is carefully explored. I particularly like the way Noah details both their journeys in the woods and their time spent in the villages and towns along the way with snippets of information of their time together giving such insight into how the two interact and it is this detail that brings their relationship to life, it feels real.When the two of them finally surrender to their attraction the slow heat that has built up erupts and the book suddenly becomes ‘Hot’. I felt gutted for Ori when Siv left, even if it was temporary, and when Ori is taken back to his old life I felt his despair. More could have been made of Siv’s search for Ori as it was with Ori’s life back in ‘The Pit’ but it isn’t a big omission. The ending is perfect and it leaves me wanting to know more about their life when they return to Sivs world.Note - I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest & unbiased review
Another taste of Ori and Siv…Having already been given a little taste of Ori and Siv, I was looking forward to Reckless Spirit, and once again, Noah Harris does not disappoint. Starting off with a bang as Ori makes his break for freedom from the oppressive village where he was a prisoner, he has his first encounter with Siv, a lone alpha who saved him from being reclaimed by the hunters searching for him. The pair continues to travel together, settling into a remarkably comfortable relationship, and as Ori's confidence blossoms under Siv's patient handling, the banter between them enlivens and becomes more heavily charged. I loved how playful they became with each other, and they had such a great balance between Siv's inherent nobility and Ori's humility. When Siv is pushed to reveal the depths of his alpha dominance to protect Ori, the dynamic between the two intensifies to an entirely new and compelling level. Compliance to an alpha is instinctive to Ori's omega nature however, and while he resists the pull, his apprehension is well warranted after the abuses he's suffered, so his tentative steps towards Siv tugged at me. It turns out that as much as I enjoyed the way the story was fleshed out from Trace, in this version I was no less annoyed by the way Siv handled his return home, regardless of his good intentions. It did afford me one more chance to really enjoy the way Ori let his actions speak for themselves when they reunited though, which was so fun for me to read. Another great choice for mpreg fans, the storyline progresses quickly for an engaging read, but it’s the building relationship between Siv and Ori that completely absorbed me.Please note that I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
What a sweet and sexy Cinderella story this was! Both of these main characters were great. Ori stole my heart with all his glaring and prickly-ness. He made me chuckle with some of his reactions to real or imagined affronts. Siv described him in the story as "quick-witted, sassy, and sarcastic", and that was so true. Siv, on the other hand, is the kind of even-tempered alpha that takes the little spitfire in stride (and sometimes with a secret smile or chuckle). He isn't a heavy-handed or growly alpha. He is fiercely protective of Ori without being overbearing and possessive. I loved their dynamic. This was a story where the relationship takes time to develop--no insta-love or even insta-lust. No fated mates. Just two people whose feelings grow from companionship into love. Because of that, the sex doesn't happen until the last bit of the book. This made it all the more enjoyable for me as a reader (and I'm sure for them!). There were a number of surprising twists and obstacles to their HEA. My one complaint was that the story ends very abruptly. I would have loved even a short epilogue. I also want to note that, while this is an mpreg world, we don't follow a pregnancy through until the end. This is definitely one of my favorites by Noah Harris!*I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.*
Ori always believed there had to be more to life than the boundaries of his village. There was only one problem: omegas were not allowed to leave. Ever. Willing to risk everything to find something more than life as a breeder, he runs. His path inevitably crosses that of a handsome and charming, red-haired wandering Alpha, Siv. The two make an unlikely pair and surprisingly good traveling companions. For once in his life, Ori finds himself happy. In that happiness, he finds he might just trust this mysterious stranger. *explicit content*The Omegas in Ori's village are prisoners and forced to do whatever any Alpha requires. Ori cannot believe that this is all his life was meant to be and he runs. He encounters Siv, an Alpha, which makes him difficult to trust, but Ori has little choice. Siv is confounded by Ori and understands little of what is happening in most Omega Houses nor the horror Ori faced daily. Their relationship grows into mutual friendship as they travel. Ori must decide if he fully trusts Siv, even loves him.
So...I'm trying to figure out how this works with Trace, because I read that (even though I didn't rate it here, I re-downloaded it on my Kindle and I had read it!) and I feel like this was the same story? Am I missing something here?Anyway, I enjoyed the dynamics between Ori and Siv. I really enjoyed that they weren't the typical alpha and omega stereotypes, Ori stood up for himself and had a backbone, and Siv was a gentleman and not blinded by Alpha "MINE!" lust. Together, they were wonderful together, and I did enjoy reading this. I just wish that Siv could have left Ori a better note! :D
I feel like I would have liked this book better if I wouldn't have read book one. I thought it would be a preview for this book and I love a series so I figured it would be worth the extra time to start from the beginning. NOPE...I was wrong. Book 2 is just and extension of the first book.I will say the plot was intriguing and I liked the first book a lot hence the extra star
