Edric by Joyee Flynn is the third book in the Resistant Omegas series.
Three months ago, Tristan and Carson obtained permission from the high council to open up the Omega network, after revealing the subhuman treatment many Omegas received from their alpha and betas (or Inner Circle) that they had been sold to. Tristan and Carson are determined to give assistance to any omega, but they never expected so many would be in trouble. Now, after rescuing them, they need to help them find new mates.
Edric recently lost his parents and was desperate to find someone who could help get him away from his uncle who only wanted Edric for the powers he obtained from having sex with him. After Edric was rescued, he came to stay with Carson until they could find him a new inner circle. Carson doesn't even want to meet any more alphas, but omegas need multiple mates to ground them while their omega powers manifest. Unfortunately for Edric, the first alpha he meets is just as abusive as his uncle was, but Colin, Blain, and Rowan, the Inner Circle from the Cheyenne, Wyoming pack come to his rescue. Edric is instantly aroused after meeting them, but his memories of abuse and neglect make him hesitant of trusting strangers. When Edric is ready to begin their lives together, he is betrayed by the very men he who promised to always be there for him. Can Edric, Colin, Blain, and Rowan rebuild the trust that was torn apart?
I was brought to tears as Tristan and Carson read the messages that the omegas left asking for help or advice. It was heard to believe how their treatment was allowed and never questioned by the high council. The way Tristan and Carson's mates stepped up to rescue the omegas was wonderful. As Edric's story unfolded, it was sad how he was never allowed to make any decisions of his own and if it weren't for the Omega Network, he wouldn't have known how to get help. I felt Edric's heartbreak when the men he trusted treated him so horribly over a simple misunderstanding. The love between Edric and his mates was beautiful to behold, making their separation that much more difficult to accept. This story reminds everyone to ask questions before assigning blame because it is too easy to misconstrue a situation and hurt someone.
