Werewolves get one mate for life - so why does he want Preston Dalton when he’s sure he has a mate somewhere?
Secrets and betrayals of trust complicate everything. Can Wyatt and Preston come together as they were meant to be? Or will a broken trust and deception keep them apart forever?
Six years ago, Chaz Savage was on top of the world: Beloved NFL star, filthy rich, great friends -- and a man he was close to falling in love with. Lev Chirkoff was smart, funny, sexy and freaking adorable. Then, one night he was gone with no explanation. Chaz is devastated, left wondering what happened to the only man who ever had his heart. Eventually, hurt turns to anger and then to rage. If he EVER sees that man again....
Lev Chirkoff has an impossible job forced on him by the mob boss his father works for.

Six years later, Lev returns to Seattle, makes new friends and finds a purpose in life. A Halloween party puts him in Chaz's orbit again, and unsportsmanlike conduct doesn't begin to cover the big man's reaction.

Once old feelings stir, he finally has a chance to discover the truth of Lev's betrayal.

Une très bonne surprise, difficile à lâcher. Les personnages sont bien plus complexes qu'ils n'y paraissent au premier abord, et cela donne lieu à une belle romance qui fait se sentir bien. Je recommande vivement !
Cole a réussi dans la vie au-delà de ses rêves. Il peut avoir n'importe quelle femme, mais il n'y en a qu'une qui occupe ses pensées. Son amour d'enfance, Renita. Il n'a jamais oublié ce premier goût de l'amour innocent, le désir qui les a consumés... et la douleur qu'il lui a infligé.

“And yet another reason I need you with me, Monique. That positive attitude.”
“I’m just a ray of sunshine and utter beauty in your life, Mia.”
Mia laughed. “That you are.”
“Hey, do you want to have dinner tonight? I have a date and he has a really gorgeous friend. We’re going to try out this new Korean place that everyone’s talking about.”
She shook her head. “Thanks, but I already have plans.”
“Ooh, a hot date?”
“No. Dinner with Nathan Riley.”
Monique arched a perfect brow. “So it is a hot date.”
The only person she’d ever told about her onetime hookup with Nathan was Monique, because she was the only person Mia trusted with all her secrets. “Not ever going to happen again.”
Monique leaned back in her chair and shoved her pen into her gorgeous afro. “I don’t know why. The man is delicious.”
“The why is because we’re friends.”
“Oh, and you can’t fuck a friend?”
Fortunately, Monique’s office was at the other end of the hall, away from everyone else, so no one could hear them. “No, I can’t. My friendship with Nathan means too much to me.”
“Pff. Bullshit. You’re just afraid it was too hot for you and you might fall in love with him.”
“I am not afraid, and falling in love with Nathan is the last thing on my mind.” She walked in and slid into the chair across from Monique’s desk. “Though it was very hot sex. But love? I don’t have time for love. I’m building a dynasty here.”
“Uh-huh. You can build all the dynasties you want. But you can still jump on Nathan Riley.”
She shook her head. “What if I want to bring him on board MHC?”
“I don’t know. The thought just popped into my head. But if I did, I can’t have sex with him and then sign him as a client, too.”
“Why not? Wouldn’t that be just an added incentive, like a fringe benefit?”
She rolled her eyes. “Monique. You have like . . . zero boundaries.”
Monique grinned. “I know. Isn’t it great? How do you think I landed a date with third-floor hottie?”
Mia arched a brow. “Your date tonight is with elevator guy?”
Monique nodded. “Yes. Hot business-suit elevator guy.”
“He is extremely sexy.”
“Yes he is, in that buttoned-up, tie-wearing, you want to take all his clothes off kind of way.”
Mia laughed. “Been thinking about that, have you?”
“I have. I intend to explore him in depth after dinner tonight. Maybe loosen up that designer necktie he wears, along with some of his other clothes.”
Mia shook her head. “I can’t wait for the details.”
She got up and went back to her office. She finished up for the day, and she and Monique locked up the office. They took the elevator downstairs and walked outside.
“You sure you don’t want me and elevator guy to come to dinner with you? I could point out Nathan’s fine ass and remind you of how great he was in the sack.”
Mia turned Monique in the opposite direction. “Oh my God no. Enjoy dinner alone with hot elevator guy. Try to call him by his real name.”
“Are you sure?” Monique asked as she started to walk away. “I can recall you damn near reciting poetry about all of Nathan’s fine attributes. Don’t forget about his enormous—”
Fortunately, whatever Monique said was drowned out by traffic sounds.
«Et encore une autre raison pour laquelle j'ai besoin de toi avec moi, Monique. Cette attitude positive. "
"Je ne suis qu'un rayon de soleil et une beauté absolue dans ta vie, Mia."
Mia a ri. "Que tu es."
«Hé, tu veux dîner ce soir? J'ai un rendez-vous et il a un ami vraiment magnifique. Nous allons essayer ce nouvel endroit coréen dont tout le monde parle. "
Elle secoua la tête. "Merci, mais j'ai déjà des projets."
"Ooh, un rendez-vous chaud?"
"Non. Dîner avec Nathan Riley. "
Monique arqua un front parfait. "Donc, c'est un rendez-vous chaud."
Monique était la seule personne à qui elle ait jamais parlé de sa relation avec Nathan, car elle était la seule personne à qui Mia avait confiance en tous ses secrets. "Cela n'arrivera plus jamais."
Monique se pencha sur sa chaise et fourra son stylo dans son magnifique afro. «Je ne sais pas pourquoi. Cet homme est délicieux. "
"Le pourquoi est parce que nous sommes des amis."
"Oh, et tu ne peux pas baiser un ami?"
Heureusement, le bureau de Monique se trouvait à l’autre bout du couloir, loin de tout le monde, afin que personne ne puisse les entendre. «Non, je ne peux pas. Mon amitié avec Nathan signifie trop pour moi. "
“Pff. Connerie. Tu as juste peur que ce soit trop chaud pour toi et tu pourrais tomber amoureux de lui. "
"Je n’ai pas peur, et tomber amoureux de Nathan est la dernière chose à laquelle je pense." Elle entra et s’installa dans le fauteuil en face du bureau de Monique. «Même si c'était du sexe très chaud. Mais l'amour? Je n’ai pas le temps d’aimer. Je construis une dynastie ici. "
“Uh-huh. Vous pouvez construire toutes les dynasties que vous voulez. Mais vous pouvez toujours sauter sur Nathan Riley.
Elle secoua la tête. "Et si je veux l'amener à bord du MHC?"
"Le faites vous?"
"Je ne sais pas. La pensée me vient à l'esprit. Mais si je le faisais, je ne pourrais pas avoir de relations sexuelles avec lui, puis le signer en tant que client aussi. "
"Pourquoi pas? Ne serait-ce pas simplement une incitation supplémentaire, comme un avantage marginal? "
Elle roula des yeux. «Monique. Vous avez comme. . . limites zéro. "
Monique sourit. "Je sais. N'est-ce pas génial? Comment penses-tu que j'ai eu un rendez-vous avec une fille au troisième étage?
Mia arqua un sourcil. "Votre rendez-vous ce soir est avec l'ascenseur?"
Monique acquiesça. "Oui. Un gars costaud en costume d'affaires. "
"Il est extrêmement sexy."
"Oui, il est vêtu de cette cravate, tu veux lui enlever tous ses vêtements."
Mia a ri. "Vous y avez pensé, n'est-ce pas?"
"J'ai. J'ai l'intention de l'explorer en profondeur après le dîner de ce soir. Détachez peut-être sa cravate de créateur qu'il porte, ainsi que certains de ses autres vêtements.
Mia secoua la tête. "Je ne peux pas attendre pour les détails."
Elle se leva et retourna dans son bureau. Elle a fini pour la journée et elle et Monique ont fermé le bureau. Ils ont pris l'ascenseur en bas et sont sortis.
«Tu es sûr que tu ne veux pas que moi et le gars de l’ascenseur vienne dîner avec toi? Je pourrais souligner le beau cul de Nathan et vous rappeler à quel point il était génial dans le sac. "
Mia a tourné Monique dans la direction opposée. «Oh mon Dieu non. Profitez d'un dîner seul avec le gars chaud d'ascenseur. Essayez de l'appeler par son vrai nom.
«Tu es sûre?» Demanda Monique alors qu'elle commençait à s'éloigner. «Je me souviens que vous ayez failli réciter de la poésie sur tous les beaux attributs de Nathan. N'oublie pas son énorme…
Heureusement, tout ce que Monique a dit était noyé par les bruits de la route.
