Publisher's Summary

More than a century ago, the Segregation Laws made enemies of humans and shifters, and imprisoned the pack behind their enclave walls. 

Laine wants Garrick. He wants him out from behind those walls and being what he was meant to be - a brilliant lawyer. He also wants to claim Garrick openly as his partner, but with the prejudice on both sides, he’ll never get what he wants. Unless he can pull off something spectacular.

Like getting Garrick admitted to the Bar.

Garrick’s spent so much of his life keeping secrets, he doesn’t know how to open up to another person. Even if it’s Laine, the human lawyer who stole Garrick’s heart and made him want things he could never have. But Laine’s pushing too hard, and there’s another lawyer, one from Washington, holding out the promise of truly eliminating the laws keeping shifters locked behind walls. If they could bring those down, then maybe some of Garrick’s dreams could become reality. If only he could make Laine see....

All while an unforeseen gift of history creates rumbles of change in the packs, and drives Mercy Hills to an announcement that will rock shifter society to the roots.

Just What I Expect from Mercy Hills

I've read the book, and the audio follows it perfectly. Nick J. Russo narrates the story beautifully, and gives the reader exactly what is needed in this installment of the Mercy Hills series. Throughly enjoyable.

It came to life for me

I love this series but this was not my favorite book. Listening to the audio has changed everything for me. The narrator brought this book to life for me and let me see the characters with new eyes. I highly recommend, not only this series, but this book.

an amazing series

I love this continuing story of the Mercy Hills Pack. In this story Laine, the pack's human lawyer, gets together with Garrick. Garrick has a secret he's hiding that could change everything for him, even his relationship with Laine. Narrator Nick J. Russo does an amazing job in bringing these characters to life.

Law and Love

This is the fifth book in the Mercy Hills Series and the first four books should be read before enjoying this book. Garrick is a shifter and a lawyer. Except, he’s not really a lawyer because significant obstacles have been thrown in his way which prevented him from taking the bar test. Laine, his lover and employer, is determined to change that. Laine, in fact, is determined to change a lot of things wrong with their world, because Laine is in love with Garrick. Humans and shifters aren’t supposed to fall in love and be together, but Laine and Garrick have started the journey to change that. This book picks up right where book four left off, and we learn more about the laws governing shifter and human interactions, as well as the history of the enclaves and hidden history of Omegas. I adore all this world-building and political/social intrigue. I find it fascinating how political the Omegas have to be interacting not only with other shifters, but with humans who fear them and humans who have put them on a pedestal. Laine, the human lawyer, is such a wonderfully crafted character – he’s independent, arrogant, yet still so vulnerable when it comes to Garrick. I love getting more glimpses inside this world and putting all the pieces together when it comes to how shifters survive in a world that would rather they disappeared. Change is in the air, and I’m excited for the next books to see how this all plays out.

heartbreaking

Biases, prejudices, and segregation are so disheartening, that it made me weep! All the trials, turmoil, and obstacles Laine and Garrick had to overcome are gutwrenching. I love both men's integrity and perseverance against the odds. The storyline is compelling and resonated deeply with me. I like that the couple has a HFN ending and look forward to more in the future. The narrator did an amazing job. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this story and am giving an honest review.

Love Nick, this is a good addition to the series

You have to be tenacious with these stories but they’re all really good. I think the author could use a strong hand with editing and the stories would be improved, but I do love the characters and their journey to growth. This story did not emphasize the MCs as much as I’d wish but their story was sweet in the end. For this, I had to mark it down in ratings – I read these for the romance and that wasn’t as much the focus as in the other books. I’ve really enjoyed watching where this band of shifters has gone over time. I love Nick J Russo and so listening to these (long) stories is very enjoyable. 3.5 of 5 stars

Brilliant!

When you put together the complex world written by Ann-Katrin Byrde, and the wonderful acting voice of Nick J Russo you’ll get many hours enjoying one of the best book in the series. Ms Byrde created the world of Mercy Hills Pack series and you’ll find that a shifter’s story could be even more interesting when you added to the normal pack dynamics between alphas and omegas, topics like intolerance, discrimination, interspecies relationships and genre roles. Laine’s and Garrick’s story is one of the best I’ve ever read because the balance between the issues than any couple in a romantic relationship could have and all the Issues a shifter-human couple in a dystopian reality actually had. Brilliant!!

Can't wait for the next book.

First off, I disappointed by the lack of MPREG even though it's in the title. This book is all about the politics with the smallest amount of time spent on Laine and Garrick's relationship. I liked the book but I didn't love it. I'm hoping for more in the next book. Nick J. Russo does an amazing job as usual.

Legal love!

Garrick is a shifter, living in a world where shifters are segregated and with a big secret. He studied law but he can’t take the bar. He works of Laine, his lover. In a perfect world, Laine would be his Mate but he is human. I liked the political side of the story, how Garrick’s Pack is working to change laws and give the shifters better opportunities. It takes a lot for the MC to finally be together but it was worth it. Great narration too. Nick Russo has an awesome voice.

Another great addition to the series

Laine can't understand Garrick's reluctance, but he's holding himself back as well. Garrick is having trouble and finds himself caught between two worlds. I enjoyed the pack dynamics and seeing character growth. The omega are finally coming into their own and it's a beautiful thing to behold. There's also a compelling and intriguing mystery to be solved. Nick J. Russo has done a superb job of bringing these characters to life as usual.

Loved It!

Yet another fine instalment from this great series. This one definitely goes into more detail about the ‘True Omega’ and what it is actually starting to mean. I do love this series of audiobooks as it has a fine mix of everything, without leaving anything out or cliffhangers. The only negative thing I have to say is, the audiobook format comes out a lot later than the actual book release. Apart from that issue, it is a fantastic listen from beginning to end. I highly recommend, but you will really benefit from listening to this series in order, to fully understand the characters as they are mentioned regularly in each book as new characters are introduced.

Not my favourite

I found this book difficult because Layne is a sweet man and garret is a whiny brat. He never allowed Layne to learn anything but held his ignorance against him.
