Kliment has finally mustered up the courage to ask out his friend Shashi, the Dom he’s longed to serve since before he even knew his name. Their months getting to know each other have made him want more than what he has with Lochan, the Dom he only serves so his inner Sub won't go crazy. He needs a Dom he can pair with –to surrender complete control to– and Shashi is the one he wants to give power over him.

Unfortunately, he's never done this before, and some college kids aren't as smart as they think they are.

Also some Doms really hate being told no.

Choosing her cost me everything I’d ever loved… including her.

It’s why I left the small town where I grew up and vowed never to return.

I’m no longer the “golden boy with a bright future” they all remember. Instead, I carry the scars of a tortured past. A broken man deemed unfit, even by the Navy SEALs he’d dedicated the past decade to serve.

What was supposed to be a quick trip to sell my parent’s property turned into this twisted journey that forced me to confront my demons.

And then there she was. My first love, and deepest regret. The woman who still owns every piece of my blackened heart. When she asked for my time, I couldn’t refuse.

Now I can’t walk away.

Not after hearing of the danger her husband, a missing FBI agent, has brought to her doorstep. After everything, I owe her my help. It’s why I offer to protect her and her two little girls from the danger circling them.

It’s a vow I never should have made, given the trail of bodies I’ve left in my wake.

Like the harbinger of death, I’m the last man either of us should trust.
