Terry Martin has an awesome life – good friends, loving parents and a job he loves designing all of the bright and wonderful costumes for the drag queens at Club Blue. Sure, no one but his parents know he’s an Omega wolf, but he’s okay with that. Unfortunately being a twink often means getting picked on and after a night out with friends, Terry has the misfortune to meet an Alpha wolf, Detective Zander Samuels – his true mate.

Zander can’t have a mate, especially a pretty, sweet little man like Terry. His friend of more than ten years, and partner on the force hates gay men with a passion and Zander won’t risk the only true friend he has, not even for a mate. So even though he’s scented Terry, Zander is determined to stay away from the Omega. Unfortunately the Fates are just as determined that the two men should be together and when Zander finds himself hit with the mating curse in more ways than one, he comes up with a plan to have Terry without upsetting his friend.

A nasty boss, a homophobic partner, some really jerky behaviour by Zander and another Alpha wolf keen on claiming Terry for his own, all conspire to stop any chance these two have of finding true love. But did I mention that the Fates are really persistent?

Warning: This book is about male wolf shifters, it includes coarse language, mm sex scenes, a gorgeously cute Omega who will melt your heart and an Alpha wolf you will just want to slap around the head.


Dancing Around the Cop by Lisa Oliver is the second book in the Alpha and Omega series. This could be read as a stand alone novel just fine. I love this particular series a lot. I am a sucker for MM and werewolves and this series delivers. There is a great connection between Terry and Zander. I liked the pace over all to this story as well.
Terry is an Omega. He is a clothing designer for drag queens. I loved the personalities he designs for they need stories too if you ask me. But Terry is a sweet character, he is kind, and just over all a good person. He is being harassed by his boss. He is a colorful personality and dresser.
Zander has a homophobic partner on the force. He is good at his job. He likes his best friend and partner. He doesn't want to lose his friendship, but he knows he will if he ever finds out that Zander is gay.
So when Zander finds his mate he wants to just have a booty call. He doesn't want commitments. Well Terry is not that kind of guy. He shows the mighty Alpha that Omegas can play to win.
I like that Zander comes full circle in this book. He learns what he really is like inside. And he grows, learns, and connects to his inner wolf.
Over all a great love story with passion and heat. There are memorable secondary characters that I would love to know more about in the future as well.
