Vencentio thought being rescued from his pack would be the first step to a new life until he gets locked in a room at the High Council Estate. He spends his days staring out the window, only getting an occasional visitor—a man who has sex with him.

Carter needs an Omega and shows up at to court Vencentio in hopes of getting to join his pack. Their initial meeting doesn’t go smoothly. When Carter learns no one from the Omega Network knows that Vencentio’s being held at the High Council Estate, Carter helps him escape, and they head to Denver and Tristan.

Abuse has made Vencentio bitter and nothing Carter does satisfies him, putting their relationship at a stalemate. He eventually makes friends with Marlowe and Gavin but Vencentio still has trust issues. Where does that leave Carter? Can they ever make an inner circle work?

Vencentio is the last release in Joyee Flynn’s Resistant Omegas series. Tristan and his mates from the first release, along with why the Omega Network was started come from the first book. I recommend you at least read it first.

The basic premise from one book to the next is the same—abused omega is rescued and finds his mates, but here Ms. Flynn has come up with a unique slant for the opening. It’s a subtle difference I appreciated before the story flowed into more of a familiar format. Despite some heavy moments, Vencentio’s a fairly light and fun read. Yes, there are some twists but nothing that really surprised me. The descriptions are good and the pacing is steady as it flows from one scene to the next. Using Tristan and his mates as supporting characters as leaders of the Omega Network is a great way in continuing their involvement in the series.

Now to Carter. I liked this alpha male. He had trouble with Vencentio initially and was pushed away for a while but finally figured out how to deal with the omega over time. Vencentio is definitely not my favorite omega of this series. For much of the book, he’s far too bitter and angry. I understand the why but for me it went on too long. Marlowe and Gavin are interesting guys and rounded out the inner circle nicely. I just wish there’d been more time to get to know them better. Watch for Wesley, coming next.
