Micah Barak rescued his mate from the clutches of his abusive father, but Oliver was too young to claim. As Oliver lashed out at everyone around him, Micah was determined to protect him, reminding the pack of their mates’ own shortcomings.
Now eighteen, lonely, and desperate, Oliver is trying to give up the hatred that’s long claimed him. He longs for Micah’s heart and body, but will his old ways let him truly open himself up to love?
One night, driving home, they’re run off the road by wolves out to kill Oliver for thwarting the violent attempts of the Eastern pack’s ex-alpha, Jackson. Oliver, so used to being defiant, is now a target of rogues with no sense of playing by the rules.
Will Micah finally claim Oliver—if he can keep him alive—or has the young man’s bitterness gouged a hole too deep?
Note: Each book in Lynn Hagen's Brac Pack collection focuses on a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, we recommend reading the series in sequential order.

5 CHERRIES: "Once again the mates are banding together and taking over the house. The scenes with all the mates together are light hearted and enjoyable. All these men from different back grounds are coming together to form a family they all so desperately needed. This was a story in this series I was looking forward to and Ms. Hagen has done an excellent job of telling Oliver’s story. What won’t kill us only makes us stronger, and this is very true where Oliver is concerned. Underneath the gruff exterior lies a heart of gold. If you’re a reader who loves a story that unfolds into a very touching love story, you will love Oliver’s Heart." -- Coreopsis, Whipped Cream Reviews
5 LIPS: "Oliver’s Heart by Lynn Hagen is a wonderful read that I was dying to get hold of. Although all of Ms. Hagen’s Brac Pac books feature one mated couple, I do not feel that they are standalone reads. They all intertwine so much, the only true way to do justice to them is to read them in order. In this case, the subplot with these two mates has been building in prior books. I have really wanted to know why Oliver was the way he was and how he could be so mean to his brother; this book explains it. Oliver’s story is my favorite so far in this series. He is a very complicated character and his mate is perfect for him. I really appreciate that Ms. Hagen takes such serious subjects like abuse and turns them into something beautiful. It just adds that certain depth to the book that makes me want to read more and more of her work. When you want a blend of man-on-man romance that and touches you heart and soul deep, this is the series I would recommend." -- Tina, TwoLips Reviews
4.5 NYMPHS: "Oliver’s Heart is a wonderfully written story that helps further the plot of the Brac Pack series. New characters are introduced, the ongoing situation between Cody, Jasper, and Zeus continues to heat up and once again, the mates find themselves in trouble. This is a long running series, 19 books in all, so there are many more mates to be found and I can’t wait." -- Critter Nymph, Literary Nymphs Reviews
4 STARS: "The Brac Pack is back! In the 6th installment of this shifter series, OLIVER'S HEART, Oliver learns to deal with his past and learns to accept himself as well. Once again dealing with some very uncomfortable subject matter in a tactful and sensitive manner, I applaud Ms. Hagen for her ability to do so. She pens a story of not just surviving the horrors in life but thriving. When Oliver arrived at "the den", he was angry at his father for the years of abuse that he had to endure and resentful towards his brother Blair for leaving him. Not knowing how to deal with his feelings, he lashes out at everyone in the house, including his mate, Micah. But after months of living with the pack he comes to understand that his brother didn't abandon him and he is finally coming to terms with being gay himself. Now he just needs to convince Micah that he is ready to be claimed. Micah has been making excuses and apologizing to everyone for Oliver's behavior for months. Now that Oliver is 18, his wolf wants to claim him but Micah isn't sure that Oliver is really ready. So he spends as much time away from Oliver as he can. Oliver, thinking that Micah doesn't want him, does something that causes a misunderstanding between the mates that almost finishes them before they have a chance. I've been looking forward to this story since we met Oliver in the third book, and for me it didn't disappoint. Knowing from the start the issues the couple was going to have to deal with didn't make it any easier to read. I felt for both Oliver and Micah as they struggled to come together. Even with the seriousness that Oliver is working through there are still those moments when all the mates come together that made me laugh. Another strong installment in this series, and once again I am ready to read what happens next for the Pack." -- Tyra, The Romance Reviews
More From Brac Pack
“You have fun?” Micah asked as Oliver curled into his arms.
“Yeah, just a horror movie. No big deal,” Oliver said matter-of-factly.
“Liar.” Micah turned Oliver over in his arms then ran his tongue along Oliver’s lips. He skimmed his teeth as Oliver opened for him. Micah sucked Oliver’s tongue into his mouth as he kneaded his ass.
Oliver wrapped his arms around Micah’s neck as he pushed his cock into Micah’s abdomen. He broke the kiss. “Wanna taste you.”
Micah rolled onto his back. Oliver’s muscles drew tight with pleasure as he kissed his way down Micah’s body. A moan left Oliver’s throat at the taste of his mate’s skin. He had never given head before. This would be his first time.
Oliver’s cock ached as he licked the length of Micah’s dick. Micah spread his legs further apart, and Oliver climbed between them. He prayed he did it correctly. Was there a correct way? He should have looked it up on the Internet before confessing to Micah his desires.
He stroked Micah’s cock a few times before he glided the mushroomed head across his lips. He could feel his hand tremble slightly as he ran his tongue across the smeared drops, the taste exploding in his mouth. Oliver glanced up to see Micah watching him, his eyes slanted in lust. He must be doing something right for his mate to have that lusty look.
Oliver opened his mouth wider as he wrapped his lips around Micah’s cock.
“Fuck.” Micah groaned, his hand coming down to run over Oliver’s head.
It still felt like a dream. He was actually mated now, finally. Oliver laved at the opening, drawing the pre-come out as he rolled Micah’s balls in his hands. He was running on pure instinct here.
Oliver looked up once again at Micah, a blush fanning across his face and neck at the intimate way Micah was seeing him.
Micah gave a low growl. Oliver took him deeper, humming as his tongue swirled around the hard shaft. Micah thrust his hips, and Oliver gagged. His eyes watered as he pulled back.
“Fuck, Oliver.” Micah leaned up to his elbows. “Please tell me you’ve done this before.”
Oliver ignored him as he sucked harder, his mouth going up and down the cock, his hands feathering across Micah’s scrotum. He was not about to engage in a debate about cock sucking with a hard shaft shoved in his mouth.
“Oliver, gonna…” Micah warned as his hands locked onto Oliver’s head, thrusting his pelvis faster in short bursts. Oliver was thankful his mate took into consideration his inexperience.
Oliver grabbed the base and pumped as he swallowed further. Hot pulses hit the back of his throat as he struggled to swallow.
Micah howled as his hands pressed firmer on Oliver, his hips jerking until he collapsed.
Oliver crawled up Micah’s body, craving the feeling of that thick, long shaft inside of him. His heart beat faster at the thought of his mate watching him this time, facing each other. It was heady, exhilarating. Oliver wanted to throw his head back and laugh with the giddiness that was bubbling up inside of him.
He straddled Micah’s abdomen then leaned down to share the musky taste still lingering on his lips and in his mouth.
Micah devoured him. His hands grabbed Oliver’s hips as his tongue ravaged Oliver’s mouth.
“Need you.” Oliver moaned into Micah’s mouth. He reached over and grabbed the lube, setting himself back slightly to pour a generous amount down onto Micah.
Micah grabbed the base and held it up as Oliver placed his palms on Micah’s chest and braced his feet. Micah guided his cock as Oliver slowly worked the prick inside. He bit his lip from the pinch and burn, let out a breath, and then lowered a fraction more. Micah watched him the whole time.
Oliver looked down at his mate with all the love he felt in his heart. His chest swelled with the overabundance of emotions coursing through him. His. Micah was his. He hadn’t lost him.
Oliver blew out as he finally seated himself. This position opened him wider, the cock going deeper. Oliver pulled forward then rocked back, Micah’s hands on his hips helping him along.
He picked up his pace as Micah pulled his legs up, planted his feet, and then thrust deeply into him. Oliver cried out as Micah grinned then repeated the move. He hit Oliver’s gland every time he withdrew.
“Micah,” Oliver sang as his mate jetted into him. Fire licking his nerve endings, he slammed back to meet Micah’s thrust.
Micah’s canines extended, making Oliver’s cock throb harder. He grabbed it, but Micah pulled his hand away.
“Come here.” He grunted as Oliver leaned forward. Micah snaked his hand around Oliver’s neck, leading him down as his hips continued their assault. His teeth sank into the flesh where his neck ended and his shoulder began, Oliver’s soft skin relenting under the powerful bite.
