Getting Close to the Omega (Cloverleah Pack #5) Lisa Oliver
reviewed by: Claudia
Dean Weir has finally found happiness in his position as Omega wolf of the Cloverleah pack. He has his friends, his work and his art and he has never looked for anything else. Badly abused by his ex-home pack and Alpha, Dean keeps his head down and stays out of trouble. That is, until his mate joins the pack.
Matthew Charmichael is over a hundred years old and has been a lone wolf for longer than he can remember. Joining the Cloverleah pack after he heard they were having trouble with another wolf shifter, Matthew is overjoyed to find his mate is the cute little Omega of the small pack. But Dean's past, and the constant attacks on the pack from the mysterious Kylan, could mean that Matthew and Dean won't get their HEA after all. Can Dean overcome his past, and embrace the powers that a claimed Omega is purported to have, or will his ex-pack kill him before he and Matthew have a chance.
I was honored when Bec invited me to review this book, and I’m so glad I accepted, since it’s a great story!
I didn’t read the first ones in the series, but even if this book can be read as a standalone, after reading Matthew and Dean's story, it’s impossible not to feel drawn to the Cloverleah pack member’s… so yeah, now I must read the first 4 books from this series. Yay!
Dean’s past abuse left him feeling incomplete, and even in the middle of his pack, he still feels like he’s never good enough. Finding Matthew is like having the chance at a new start so it was great to see how Matthew’s support changed Dean’s life and the way he saw himself.
I was drawn to Dean since the first pages of the story and even while he felt he was not worthy, the fact that he had survived by any means necessary his ex-alpha's abuse, and the trauma caused by it, made me respect that sweet little Omega strength!
Matthew is a powerful Alpha, and even though he has the strength to have his own pack, he prefers to join Cloverleah pack when he heard that they’re having problems with another shifter. Imagine his surprise when he finds his mate in his new pack and all the struggles they have to face to be together.
I loved to see how finding his true mate helped Dean to become the Omega he was destined to be, and how this small pack joined forces to help and protect each other.
I’m sure you’ll love this story as much as I did and will be anxious for the next one in the series! Thanks Lisa for a great story and Thanks Bec for allowing me to do this review!

NOW FOR THE EXCERPT:
“You matter to me,” Matthew said. “One day you will share your personal horrors with me, purely and simply because eventually we won’t have any secrets from each other. You will trust that I am strong enough to handle it, and that I will comfort you when you need me to. Those things come with time.” Matthew lifted his arms, encouraging Dean’s hands to come back up to his shoulders. As though he couldn’t get enough, Dean went back to tracing Matthew’s collar bone.
Matthew swallowed a moan and forced himself to keep speaking. “But right now, in this moment, I need you to know, that to me, any scars you have are a testament to your strength and ability to survive. And you have no idea how thankful I am that you did survive and that you feel comfortable enough with me to sit here and touch me like this.”
“You make me calm, like I have found my center,” Dean explained. “I don’t know why, but when I’m around you I don’t have any fear, of anything.” He looked up and Matthew was blasted by the pure need in Dean’s eyes. “Could you, would you mind maybe kissing me again, please?”
“As often as you like,” Matthew promised as he leaned over and carefully brushed his lips over Dean’s mouth.
