Carson’s old inner circle beat him and when they were challenged and overthrown, he knew he would become the Omega for the new Alpha and his Betas. He barely survived the abuse heaped upon him by his circle, and certain special members of the pack, and is certain he can only keep the new abuse at bay for a little while.
Running a pack is nothing Declan, Ian, and Taylor wanted but after seeing Carson and realizing how the inner circle was abusing him, they had no choice but to challenge them for control to prevent Caron from suffering further. When the battle was over, they might have gotten the Omega they desired but with his deep emotional baggage, having him isn’t easy.

Carson is the second release in Joyee Flynn’s new series, Resistant Omegas. Carson is a pretty tough man. He’s suffered years of abuse…not just from his old inner circle but from his parents and birth pack too and still, he tries to do the best he can despite being terrified. You can’t help but like him. I guess that’s one reason I found myself rooting for him to find a happily-ever-after. Ms. Flynn has done a nice job developing his personality, and watching him deal with his past, seeking counseling and learning to trust his mates was nicely handled. His physical relationship with Declan, Ian and Taylor starts off a little uncertain and the four men have more than a few missteps, but it isn’t long before they all reach an understanding that allows their caring to grow into a committed partnership. I just wish…gasp…there was less sex and more actual time getting to know one another.

I liked the addition of the characters from the first release, the scenes in front of the ruling council and the beginning steps that are taken to prevent further abuse of various Omegas in the future. With the way families and packs have dealt with the Omegas in this series, I can foresee lots of problems in upcoming releases and I, for one, can’t wait to see what happens next.
