A Forces of Nature novel.
It doesn’t take Hayden Garrett’s college degree to figure out why Officer Josh Peterson is the last man alive he wants to face. Not because of the council’s harebrained idea to broker peace between their clans.
It’s the sweaty palms that prove Hayden never got over his embarrassing attraction to his alpha rival. Mate with him? Nothing fills Hayden with more desire—or dread. Josh doesn’t have a gay hair in his fur. At least not one he owns up to.
Despite Josh’s reputation for being a connoisseur of female flesh, he’s always cared about Hayden. In a different world, they might have been friends. Now, face to face after five years, the bitterness in Hayden’s eyes fills Josh with regret for what could have been—should have been.
As Hayden and Josh journey through rituals—and intimacies—that will knit their souls for life, passion and anger flares, revealing a powerful secret. The truth about a long-ago sharing of hearts, bodies and souls that ended in tragedy…
I just finished re-reading this after a first read in the fall of 2012. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, why wasn’t this one on my “fuck yeah!” shelf? Well, it is now! This was beyond fantastic!! It had GFY, shifters, big, strong Alpha males from rival packs, sexual tension you could taste, hurt/healing/comfort coming out of your ears, mind boggling sex, a man in uniform, beautiful, heartfelt romance and a HEA that will have you wanting to run through a field of spring poppies.
