“Hate when you’re gone,” Jono said after he broke the kiss. He bit down gently on Patrick’s shoulder before reaching for the bottle of lube again.
“Soulbond,” Patrick muttered.
Patrick dug his fingers into the pillow as Jono poured lube over his cock where it was nestled between Patrick’s ass cheeks, getting them both messy. That thick length slid against his body, the fat head teasing over his hole and catching on the rim.
“You,” Jono retorted before nipping at Patrick’s shoulder.
Patrick wanted to argue—partly because he still had trouble believing someone could care for him like that in such an intimate way—but all the words fled his mind as Jono finally pushed into him. His mouth opened on a silent groan, lungs locking up as that thick cock split him open. Lying on the bed how he was, with his hips tilted up, knees spread wide, and Jono practically lying on top of him to keep him there, all Patrick could do was take it.
Jono worked his way inside with slow, agonizing pushes, each inch gained causing Patrick to draw in a shuddering breath. Jono’s cock was long and thick, filling Patrick up in the best way possible. By the time Jono’s hips were flush against his ass, Patrick was half out of his mind with need.
“You’re such a fucking tease,” he gasped out, entire body tight as he clenched around Jono’s cock.
Jono laughed, and Patrick could feel the vibrations through his rib cage. “Want to enjoy you. Is that too much to ask?”
“Fuck yeah it is.”
“Too bad you have to work. I had plans for you that would’ve taken all day,” Jono murmured as he flexed his hips and pulled back, the long drag of his cock leaving Patrick’s body making him whimper.
“Yeah?” he said, licking his lips.
“I wanted to take my time with you. Wanted to make you come over and over until it hurt. Then I’d take my turn.”
Patrick squeezed his eyes shut and breathed into the damp fabric of his pillow as Jono thrust back in at just the right angle to rub against his prostate. “Fuck. You’re gonna kill me in bed one of these days.”
Jono’s chuckle was warm in his ears. “Be a fun way to go.”
“Nothing wrong with that, love.”
You can’t bargain with death if you’ve already sold your soul.
Special Agent Patrick Collins has been reassigned by the Supernatural Operations Agency to New York City. Learning to navigate his new relationship with Jonothon de Vere, the werewolf he’s now soulbound to, is nothing compared to dealing with territorial disputes between the vampires and werecreatures who call the five boroughs home. But the delicate treaties that have kept the preternatural world in check are fraying at the edges, and the fallout is spilling into the mundane world.
Manhattan’s club scene is overrun with the vampire drug known as shine and the subways have become a dumping ground for bodies. When the dead are revealed as missing werecreatures, Patrick and Jono find themselves entangled in pack politics twisted by vampire machinations.
Learning to trust each other comes with problems for both of them, and the gods with a stake in Patrick’s soul debt aren’t finished with him yet. Bound by promises they can’t break, Patrick and Jono must find a way to survive a threat that takes no prisoners and is stalking them relentlessly through the city streets.
Old and new betrayals are coming home to roost but the truth—buried in blood—is more poisonous than the lies being spun. Trying to outrun death is a nightmare—one Patrick may never wake up from.
