Save Me by A.M. Arthur

Alpha Gaven Freel was taught by his doting beta parents to protect and respect omegas, and he sees those parents as shining examples of how to love his future mate. Except he’s only nineteen and still a university student, so Gaven has plenty of time to find his omega bondmate—but fate has other plans, and he scents his omega from across a crowded waiting room. Too bad his bondmate is the son of his parents’ oldest enemy.

At twenty-two, omega Frey Porter has already gone through multiple heats without an alpha. He’s desperate to find a mate, but his sire Monte Porter won’t settle for just any alpha for his only omega son. Frey will one day access a sizable trust fund—no gold diggers allowed into the wealthy Porter family. When Frey insists younger alpha Gaven Freel is his bondmate, Monte is skeptical about the pairing. And Gaven’s parents are skeptical right back, worried Monte might use the situation to punish Gaven for decades-old hurts.

Monte surprises everyone by negotiating a fair financial agreement that limits Gaven’s access to Frey’s trust fund and by allowing them to mate. Gaven has no interest in money, only in being the best alpha possible to Frey, and with Frey’s next heat months away, they have plenty of time to date and get to know each other. Frey is intimidated by Gaven’s huge extended family, but he also adores their camaraderie and genuine love for each other. Frey wants his future to be with the Freels.

Gaven is busy making plans for their life together when the unthinkable happens—Monte serves Gaven with papers dissolving the mating agreement. Papers Frey signed, too, and stands by. Devastated by losing his bondmate, Gaven sinks into a deep depression even his best friends can’t get him out of. But Frey also has a terrible, life-altering secret he’s keeping from Gaven, and he’ll have to learn to trust in the strength of the mating bond in order to save them both from darkness.

Save Me is the first book in the brand-new Finding Free omegaverse series, which is a spin-off of the fan-favorite Breaking Free series. This is an original universe featuring mpreg, A/B/O dynamics, heats, knotting and an alpha-dominated society that is starting to see advances in omega rights.

Save Me is the first book in the Finding Free series which is a spin off from the Breaking Free series. Finding Free happens 13 years later and involves all of the kids.

Save Me is Gaven Freel (Serge and Dax's son) and Frey’s, the omega son of Monte, an alpha from Dax and Serge's past, story.

Gaven and Frey have a chance meeting, scenting each other immediately. They both want to explore the connection, but past issues and Frey's sire make doing that very difficult.

I loved getting back into this world. I've missed the parents’ characters and now getting the kids’ stories is exciting. I loved this read and can't wait to see where this series goes!!

I liked this spin-off series. We got to see some of the couples from the original series. I loved Gaven and Frey. They are so sweet together. I don't want to spoil the book, but I did shed a tear or two reading this one. My heart just hurt. If you read the previous series and enjoyed it, you will definitely enjoy this book. I hope the next book is just as good and we get a glimpse of Gaven and Frey so we can see what happens next.

This book is a spinoff of the Breaking Free series. It is years later and now we're having stories of the children in the previous series.

This is a book about Gaven and Frey. Gaven was raised by amazing betas who love him dearly. He knows that alphas are supposed to love and protect his mate. But Gaven is also very aware that his family is a lot to handle. There are a lot of them that grew up together and when you add in the friends, it's a large group.

Frey has lived a sheltered life. He is the protector to his two younger brothers. When his Omegin passes away, his alpha father is less than affectionate and a lot surly. His father also is very old school in his belief that omegas are there to satisfy their alphas.

While this is supposed to be a love story, it felt that we were missing the couple for most of the book. They meet briefly, come to terms that they are fated for each other, and then spend almost the entire book apart. This seemed more like a book about Gaven and his family and friends.

I wished that this was a more comprehensive story. It felt truncated and kind of zigzagged through the storyine.

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.
