Two souls lost, now forever found.
Aiden Chava has known he was gay for as long as he could remember, but his parents never accepted him. So, after counting down the days until he could leave their home and be himself, he moved out in search of a place where he belonged as soon as he turned twenty-one. Not knowing where else to go and lost in the plethora of people he never knew if he could fit in with, Aiden becomes a paramedic, devoting his time to taking care of others.
Darius Rayne is a werewolf who never knew his real parents. Being born from the union of a man and woman from rival packs, he was never accepted by either. So, the abandoned baby was left to be found by the leader of a band of rogue misfits roaming the streets of Santa Monica. Like the rest of his newfound family, Darius vowed to never grow up or fall in love.
When the two men meet, an attraction is clear, but with both of their histories, could they just be two lost boys passing in the night? Or could they form a bond they never had with anyone else?
*This book contains explicit sex between men, a D/s lifestyle and light BDSM.
I’ve read quite a few shifter books, but this one gripped me from the start. It was magical.
Aiden never really fit in. His parents let him stay at home after he came out, but they made their disapproval known whenever possible. When he moved out and was on his own, his father made sure he couldn’t keep a lease or a job. Then, one night he was driving home and hit someone on the street and it changed his life forever.
Darius is a wolf shifter. He’s convinced himself he’ll never be in love, which is perfect for him. He lives with his friends, parties at clubs, and doesn’t need anyone. Until he meets his mate…
I loved the Peter Pan aura that surrounded this story. Darius and his roommates, together the Lost Boys, consisted of three wolf shifters, a Nephilim and a pixie. They all contributed so much levity and fun to the story as well as support for both MC’s.
The relationship between Darius and Aiden felt real and emotional. Packed with heat, the BDSM element was done expertly with open communication and rules, which is always a plus to this reader. I loved the dialogue between them and the ease of affection as their relationship played out.
