Alec knows his alpha could be doing a better job, but everyone seems to be doing okay. Alec is just an omega so all he should be worrying about is looking pretty.  When Alec’s pack is attacked and he is taken to be sold as a sex slave, Alec figures his life is over.  When the hostages are rescued, Alec’s life is changed once again and he wonders if he will survive this time.

The thirteenth book in the Wayne County Wolves series, Alec’s Moon introduces two characters who really top the snark meter.  Readers will love Alec.  He’s young and used to just laying around but there is a strength to him that even he does not realize he has.  He hides his insecurities behind a snarky attitude and, I must say, some of the things he says and thinks had me laughing.  He almost beats out Shane in this field. 

Next there is Michi.  Readers may remember him as his brother is North from North’s Complications.  Like Alec, Michi is also on the snarky side, and just to give fans of this series a hint, Michi likes Carson and considers it fun to hang out with him.   Michi and North are asked to help out the Wayne County pack after they take in some refugees, some of whom are having a hard time adjusting. 

Michi is instantly attracted to Alec and is determined to help the young wolf get over his issues.  I wish the author would have spent a little more time on this aspect of the story, though what there is comes across realistically.  Some may find the fast moving relationship that these men have to be an issue, but that is the nature of the mating pull that each of the stories in this series revolves around. 

There are some new secondary characters introduced and I hope they will be getting stories of their own soon.  While this is a fun book to read, there are several topics touched on that may make this a difficult book for some to read.
