The Omega Network Tristan and Carson envisioned is up and running and they’ve already identified several Omegas needing immediate rescue. One of those is Edric.  

With the death of his parents, Edric Sawyer came under the control of his power hungry uncle. Desperate to get away, he contacts the Omega Network and when he gets to Carson’s, Edric is nervous but excited about the changes in his life. Getting to pick his inner circle isn’t something Edric ever expected and he’s thrilled at the chance to make decisions for the first time in his life. When he meets Blaine, Colin and Rowan, Edric’s hopeful and ready to open his heart to love. 

But things don’t work out like Edric thought. Instead of the caring, affectionate and protective Alpha and Betas he expected, he’s faced with three upset and angry wolves. When Edric learns why, he’s deeply hurt because what they accuse him of isn’t true and he runs. Will this terrible misunderstanding cause a permanent rift in their relationship or can it be fixed? 

Edric is book three in Joyee Flynn’s Resistant Omegas series and I recommend they be read in order. 

It’s been a bit since the second release, Carson, so I appreciated the prologue. It reminded me of the reasoning behind the Omega Network, let us see a little of our two previous Omegas, Carson and Tristan and gave us a look at several possibilities for the Omegas of future releases. 

I liked the beginning scenes with Edric at Carson’s house and the process they went through, introducing two inner circles who might be matches. The different between the two, one tender and caring while the other was as bad the situation he’d left was a nice contrast. I also liked Carson’s anger and seeing the nasty Alpha get punched was a nice, satisfying touch.  

This is the point where I had high hopes for Edric and his relationship with Blaine, Colin and Rowan, so I expected the bottom to fall out and did it ever…artfully so. I must say though that I didn’t anticipate the Alpha and Betas would act so badly.  The personalities created for them didn’t do it for me. They should have been level headed individuals able to lead a pack; instead they reacted like unruly teenagers. It was a turn-off. I liked Edric’s response to what happened. He stood up for himself and acted in a realistic manner by taking himself out the situation. Edric and his ability to forgive and his desire to make things right is what saved the story for me. I liked him and wanted the little sweetie to find a happily ever after.
