Darren's Second Chance (Great Plains Shifters #2)
by L.C. Davis
It’s been six years, but Zander is finally starting to put the pieces of his life back together after his omega left him for his best friend the night before their mating ceremony. At least, that’s what he tells himself. In truth, the Alpha knows he’ll never be able to get over Darren, not the least of all because he imprinted.
He’s only shared this dark secret with one other person, and that doesn’t include Darren. He ran because he feared commitment, and Zander knows that if he ever enforced his claim, the omega would only be staying out of obligation. When Darren comes back into town to take shelter from his abusive ex, all Zander’s failed attempts to move on go out the window. Not only is Darren a far cry from the fearless, careless omega Zander fell hard for in his youth, but he has a son--a curly-haired kid who has his daddy’s eyes and tugs at the Alpha’s heartstrings despite surely being another man's by blood.
Darren is an omega with a lifetime of regrets. In fact, the one thing he’s never regretted since leaving the idyllic town of Sawyers and his soulmate at the altar is Bobby, the little ray of light that came out of his worst mistake. After throwing away his chance at happiness with Zander and becoming isolated from his friends and family to please his increasingly controlling significant other, Darren lives for his son. He looks past Greg’s abuse because he’s sure it’s the only way to give Bobby the family he deserves, but one night, the Alpha goes too far.
When Darren flees with his child to the one place he can think of, he knows there’s more distance between him and the life he left behind in Sawyers than the hundreds of miles between them. Zander rises to the occasion to protect the omega he still loves and his innocent son, and is willing to do whatever it takes to protect them both--but can an arrangement of convenience turn into a second chance Darren knows he doesn’t deserve?
