Lennox Ashton is one of the omegas rescued from his abusive inner circle now that the Omega Network is up and running. He was kept captive in a small attic room for years, enduring horrible torture. Now free and crippled, without family or friends, he has nothing to live for. 

Seeing Lennox during his rescue, Hugo Cormac’s smitten, refusing to leave Lennox’s side. When Hugo’s appointed the new alpha of the Oceanside pack, he convinces the recovering Lennox of his feelings and he goes along as the omega. They have to start a new life and pick betas Blair Peregrine and Falcon Beall to round out their new inner circle. But the past comes back to haunt Lennox before they have a chance to meld their lives together and Lennox is captured. Can his three men find him in time or will they be too late? 

Lennox is the newest release in Joyee Flynn’s Resistant Omegas series and I suggest the books be read in order. 

This is a good addition to the series and with the Omega Network in place has a vastly different feel from the first book. I like how this one started…with Lennox’s rescue, but I wasn’t expecting the severity of his injuries…that he’d be crippled/maimed. Between Lennox and Hugo, there’s a lot of swirling emotions in the first part of this story and the author does a nice job dealing with them. She also does well explaining why and how Lennox was abused, its affect on him and how Hugo is helping him deal with it. I like how some of this is handled but after being abused, the physical part of the relationship between the men moves forward much faster than seems reasonable for the situation.  

I like the guys in this book. Hugo is a caring alpha, Blair and Falcon are tender and protective and they make a good inner circle for Lennox. They’re new to each other but still have a playful and humorous side I enjoyed. The story is fun and entertaining with lots of intense emotions, suspense, danger and plenty of blistering hot sex. My other niggles…I didn’t expect such quick resolutions of Lennox’s crippling or the resolution of his kidnapping (my lips are sealed on the details). I look forward to the next book, hopefully with one of the new pack members.
