Heard by A.M. Arthur


An omega who can’t speak meets an alpha who won’t listen…

Karter Jenks is a first-year constable who’s still trying to prove himself to his superiors, so he isn’t looking for a mate right now. Soon, sure, but he also knows he has work to do to change his alphahole tendencies around omega rights. The Kell Iverson trial opened his eyes to how cruelly some omegas are treated, and Karter doesn’t want to follow in his authoritarian father’s footsteps when he finds his mate. And he absolutely does not expect a homeless omega vagrant and burglary suspect to be his bondmate.

Jax Orris escaped a life of captivity and pain to save himself and his infant son. Living as vagrants isn’t ideal, but it’s better than trusting the authorities who landed Jax in hell to begin with. When their hiding place is discovered, Jax is shocked to feel the mating bond with the young alpha who’s been tracking him—and even more shocked when the constable doesn’t immediately arrest him for his crimes. It helps him trust Karter enough to accept his help in keeping himself and his son safe from the men Jax escaped.

Jax’s story horrifies Karter, and he vows to protect his omega from further harm—but first he has to get his stubborn, angry omega to trust him. Trust is no longer in Jax’s nature, but he can’t deny his connection to the young alpha eager to please him. Jax never thought he’d want another alpha to touch him, much less mate with him, but Karter’s gentle patience breaks down the walls Jax erected around his heart after the death of his first mate. As Jax’s next heat approaches, the investigation into his captivity uncovers surprising connections to several previous cases, and the danger to everyone involved increases. Can he trust Karter to protect him, or will Jax’s past destroy their chance for a happily ever after?

NOTE: This is a non-shifter Omegaverse story with alpha/omega/beta dynamics, heats, knotting, and mpreg. In this world, omegas are second-class citizens with few civil rights and almost no protections under the law. Trigger warnings for physical, emotional, and sexual abuse.

This is the third book in this series and I would definitely read the previous books first. Otherwise you won't know who all of the characters are.

Karter is working hard to overcome his preconceived notions of Betas, Omegas, and Alphas. He grew up with a father who was very absolute in how he perceived the roles of each person. Now that his eyes have been opened, he is working hard to be openminded and honest with his fellow coworkers and himself. When he's called to a robbery, he instantly knows that he is going to be looking for his mate. He is in a pickle, but knows that he has made some friends on the force and can call on them to help him out.

Jax is hiding from his life. He is running for his son's life and his own. He knows what he's doing is bad, but it's either do illegal things or get caught and potentially die and or/lose his son. What he doesn't expect is to find his true mate. Despite having been married before – thus his son – his husband was never his true mate. When Jax is confronted with Karter, he's instantly put at ease, despite Karter's alpha status.

What follows is a twisted story about Jax's life before, his life after his kidnapping, and finally, his escape. Karter does his best to protect Jax and Jax really wants to believe that his alpha will be different. It takes a lot of patience and trust on both their parts to fight Jax's kidnappers and find their happiness.

I really enjoyed the relationship between Jax and Karter. It seemed very real, and despite their handicaps, they were able to develop a real, loving relationship.

A.M. Arthur was born and raised in the same kind of small town that she likes to write about, a stone's throw from both beach resorts and generational farmland. She's been creating stories in her head since she was a child and scribbling them down nearly as long, in a losing battle to make the fictional voices stop. She credits an early fascination with male friendships (bromance hadn't been coined yet back then) with her later discovery of and subsequent love affair with m/m romance stories. A.M. Arthur's work is available from Carina Press, Dreamspinner Press, SMP Swerve, and Briggs-King Books.

When not exorcising the voices in her head, she toils away in a retail job that tests her patience and gives her lots of story fodder. She can also be found in her kitchen, pretending she's an amateur chef and trying to not poison herself or others with her cuisine experiments.
