Publisher's Summary

She's safe as long as she's hidden.

Lydia Anderson is an unbonded omega who left her life behind to escape a family more interested in their status than protecting their daughter from an alpha who won't take no for an answer. It took everything, but Lydia managed to break free, running as far as she could. Now she lives with her head down, avoiding attention.

Her past is still on the hunt. And she can't get caught again.

Pack Saint Clair is everything Lydia has been taught to want. They're rich, influential, and beautiful. A chance encounter sets her on a collision course with the three alphas and their beta, and instincts long ignored flare to life, setting fire to all of their carefully laid defenses. But Lydia knows that if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Pack Saint Clair has a secret, one that could destroy everything they've worked to create. And that skeleton in their closet has set its sights on Lydia.

When the past comes to call, can the pack keep their omega safe?

Lilacs and Leather is the first book in the Pack Saint Clair series, which will feature MM, MMF, FF, and poly relationships. This story touches on subjects that may be triggering to some listeners, including descriptions of past abuse (see content warning for more details). While there will be bumps in the road, this series will end with an HEA.

Team Rhett and Mateo!

This story has shifters, alphas, an abandoned omega, sassy betas, omegaverse, reverse harem, lgbtq relationships, poly, m/m, mfm, kinky themes, hint to future ff, hint to future fmmm, laughter, love, overcoming trauma, fated mates, pack loyalty, romance, light bdsm, and more. In other words, this book is LIFE! It’s like Thora asked me, “Hey Dana, what are your favorite tropes?”, and then stuck them all in one [audio]book/series. I loved the flashbacks to Lydia’s history with her previous mate/pack. It helped strengthen my connection to and feels/emotions for her. I’m Team Lydia for sure. When God was referred to as “Sky Daddy” I nearly fell out my chair laughing. I love every single character, relationship, and romance scenario in this pack. This pack is different (as far as mates) than other shifter romances I’ve read, but that’s what I loved about it. The pack loyalty and devotion to each other is heartwarming. I just can’t praise this story enough and can’t wait to dive into the next in the series!
Matt Haynes and Maeve York were beyond perfect. I’m so glad they were cast for these roles. Their timing, pitch, pace, and tones were exemplary. I adored their characterizations. They portrayed each character so uniquely, giving them each their own style and voice. They made it so easy to feel connected to each character. Just like I can’t praise the story enough, I can’t praise these 2 narrators enough. They were absolutely phenomenal at bringing this story to life. Thank you to Pink Flamingo Productions and Audiobook Obsession for gifting me this compelling audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

omegaverse

This story is so different from what I normally read. An omegaverse story that very interesting. This kept my interest with all the different
components going on.. The characters and their relationship is developed with understanding, kindness. It's Sexy steamy, danger with a mindblowing cliffy. There are trigger warnings to pay attention to.
Matt Haynes and Maeve York narration is very good.

Lilacs and Leather

This is the first book in Pack Saint Clair series. What just happened? Why did it end? I was not prepared for that ending. This is an amazing Omegaverse book. Lydia Is a feisty omega. She is on the run from her ex. She was scared of Alphas when she met Rhett. He quickly changed her mind. Lydia was from a bee conventional pack. They believe an Alpha can do whatever he wants to his Omega. When she got to know Rhett and Mateo they showed her a new outlook on relationships and how to love. This book may contain triggers for some. This book ends on one heck of a cliffhanger. I need book 2 immediately. Maeve York and Matt Haynes did a phenomenal job narrating this book.

Different

This is the first book I've read/listened to by Thora Woods. It's also the first book I read/listened to in the Omegaverse world. It was ... different. I couldn't tell if the characters were humans or wolves. I kept waiting for shifting. Nope, not happening. It's not what I've read in the past in the fantasy trope. I went searching so I could better understand. I still have MUCH to learn and still some questions. Some terms used I didn't understand, others I assume by surrounding content. With all that said, I'm invested to see how the HEA happens for these characters.

Matt Haynes and Maeve York are excellent narrators. I think it's because of their performances that I stuck with this audiobook. They brought the characters to life. Their voices are smooth and easy to listen to. Matt has this deep, gravelly voice I could listen to for hours and Maeve's voice was peaceful. Perfect performances.

Enjoyed it

Lilacs and Leather is a why choose, omegaverse, paranormal romance that held my interest until the end. This is an MMMFF romance but this 1st book focused on Lydia, Rhett and Mateo's budding relationship. I loved these characters together and I loved the pack dynamics with Alexandra and Lucas included.
The story was sweet and steamy and with some slight trigger scenes included. It ends in a cliff hanger and I can't wait to see what happens next. I would definitely recommend it.
I listened to the audible version of this story which was narrated by Matt Haynes and Maeve York. They did a great job of bringing the story to life. I loved the accents they created for each character and they really projected their emotions into the story. It was a pleasure listening to them narrate this novel.

pack

I loved the dual narration from Matt Haynes and Maeve York. Perfect for this steamy book

Lydia is an unbonded omega hiding from unknown people in her past-including some of her family-when she meets Rhett, one of the alphas in Pack St. Lydia has the support of the Pack and finally begins to heal and stand on her own two feet.

ends in a cliff-hanger

Amazing!

If you like omegaverse and a strong yet meek FMC this is definitely for you. Pack St Clair are loyal and love each other but this little omega comes and shakes things up. They’ve all got baggage but they’ll work through it together. A must listen for sure! Can’t wait for the next one but listener be warned, it ends on a HUGE cliff hanger 🫦

Not what I was expecting

This book is brilliant. I absolutely love these characters. They have such a gentle way with this omega but can be ruthless when needed. A fantastic performance from both narrators.

3.5 stars

I enjoyed this. Lots of talk about consent and boundaries that we love to see. It did feel like the pacing was a little bit off and I feel like there's a lot still undiscovered between all the pack members and the outlying characters. I'm aware that this is a trilogy/series but it kept me from fully engaging in the story. That's why this is getting 3.5 stars instead of 4.

Fabulous Story & Listen🎧 Delightfully Intriguing!

Wow, this book blew me away, the story grabbed my attention right from the start and held it hostage the entire time. The world building and character development is fantastic, the dynamics of the A/B/O in the Omegaverse is interesting and original and everything you need to know is in the descriptive details. Lydia Anderson ran away from her family and pack when she realized her parents could not care less about what she wanted or her safety. She started a new life with hopes they would never find her to make her return home. She faces other challenges as an Omega, the biggest being her heat and staying away from alphas, trying to hide her scent to avoid unwanted attention from them. Her job in the florist shop takes her to event centers, and that is where he saw and smelled her, Rhett, an alpha from Pack Saint Clair. She disappeared on him, but he was not about to give up on finding her. I adored Rhett, kind, caring and thoughtful with Lydia and her needs. Also loved the pack dynamics, with Alexandra, Matteo and Lucas. This first book of the series lays down the foundation for the rest of the series. Lydia is accepting of the existing relationships of the pack members and they all accept her. There is a thorn on their side, one preventing them from bonding though, that thorn being Seth Douglas, a nasty omega who is throwing Lydia’s past demon in her face, Darren. I loved how everything played out in this book, the story is cleverly plotted with plenty of drama, heartfelt emotions, some angst, some twists, steamy scenes and a slow burn romance. Thora Woods, thank you for this amazing story and emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧 And for the amazing narration, Matt Haynes and Maeve York are the perfect cast to bring these characters and their story to life. They have a complete understanding of the characters they are portraying, giving each a voice that fit their character’s persona to a tee and were believable in every role they every role they played, accent and all, shout out to Haynes with Rhett’s Boston Irish when he rolled with it. York played Lydia’s role with perfection, too. Both covered the roles of several characters and were just as amazing in each. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all the character’s emotions and projected them into their performance, having you feel every single one. These entertaining storytellers are versatile voice artists and a pleasure to listen to and their performance enhances the story to another level of greatness. Thank you for another fabulous listen.
