Leo is the calm guy. The nice guy. The one nobody screws with. So could someone explain that to Meena so she stops driving him insane—with desire.Thoughts on When an Omega Snaps: Heh. I get SUCH A KICK (HA! I say this pretty much every book, BUT IT'S SO ACCURATE!) out of these guys. Leo's the "calming influence" in Arik's Pride. Actually, I probably didn't need to use quotes there. When we meet him, he is. He's the one that makes sure the others follow the rules and toe the line. He's predictable and mostly quiet and then Meena falls into his orbit.
When Meena literally throws herself at Leo and declares he’s her mate, his first reaction is to deny—and run far, far away. This lion/tiger mix doesn’t do drama and chaos. Problem is, once he sets eyes on her, he can’t help but want the vivacious blonde with plus-sized curves, perfect for a big man like himself.
He wants her even if it breaks all his rules when it comes to women.
Wants her even if she destroys his serenity.
Wants her more than a perfectly grilled piece of steak with a dash of garlic, pepper, and salt.
Thing is, someone else wants her too.
This poor omega is about to have his world turned upside down, which means everyone better watch out because when Leo experiences love, jealousy, and frustration for the first time, he doesn’t just snap—he roars!
Almost literally because the girl is FANTASTICALLY accident prone. Or, well, maybe not accident prone so much as the epicenter that crazy things happen around. She's loud and boisterous and pretty much everything Leo isn't. So what does Leo do? He adapts. He gets a little crazy. Mostly when Meena's being threatened/pawed/whatever by other dudes. The guy has a jealous streak and he doesn't like to see his lady put in harm's way.
Of course, first he has to reach the point where he actually considers her his lady and not just the insane firecracker bouncing from one disastrous event to another. It doesn't take long though before he's getting all snarly and in her business.
Fun with slightly off-kilter characters (something I thoroughly enjoy in every Eve Langlais book) and a few brawls. I read this series out of order (just to be contrary, thankyouverymuch) and I DUG seeing Dimitri before he falls hard for his special someone. The guy's not very subtle and I kinda want to read his book all over again now.
