Shane West was used to being the only wolf shifter at the Stockton Police Department. His enhanced senses helped him do his job efficiently and he prided himself on keeping control of his animal instincts. Gay from the first day he’d shifted, he also expected to live his long life alone, and provided it meant that he didn’t have to come into contact with any of his ex-pack, he told himself he was happy. And he was. Until Dimitri Polst was assigned as his new partner.
Confirmed ladies man, Dimitri Polst knew Shane from before he’d ever shifted into his wolf form. Two years older and from the same pack, Dimitri had made it his teenage mission to bring as much pain and humiliation to pretty-boy Shane as possible. But years later, he searched for that pretty boy, now all grown up, with a completely different mission in mind.
Being fated mates was hard enough, but when one man is straight and the other one has no reason to trust, then sparks are bound to fly. Add in a serial killer who is making inroads into the gay population and a possible shifter involvement, and Shane and Dimitri have a lot of thing to overcome before they get their HEA.
Dimitri had found Shane at the second club he went into. He hadn’t been able to find the piece of paper he had written the name of the club on, so he did a Google search for gay clubs in the area and found three possible venues. As he entered the club, Dimitri spotted the wolf dancing in the middle of the dance floor, but from where Dimitri was watching he could see that Shane was keeping an eye out for someone. Just a few minutes later – just enough time to appreciate how well Shane filled out his tight black jeans, Dimitri saw Shane cross the dance floor and latch onto a small, pretty, young man with a shock of blond hair. The way the blond was clinging onto Shane made it clear that they were more than casual acquaintances and when Dimitri’s enhanced eyesight picked out the way the little blond brazenly cupped Shane’s cock through his jeans, his anger started to burn. It only increased when he saw Shane lead the smaller man out the back of the club.
“No fucking way,” Dimitri snarled to himself as he forced his way through the Friday night crowds. The look on his face was enough to make most people get out of his way, although it might have also had something to do with the fact that he couldn’t stop growling. He might not have claimed Shane yet, hell, he hadn’t even really talked to him about their mating bond or the issues between them, but that didn’t mean that Shane could just go off and let any young blond thing play with what belonged to his mate.
By the time Dimitri had got to the back door of the club he knew his wolf was close to the surface. He could feel his eyes changing and the hair on his arms start to tingle. It was only through sheer force of will that he stopped the change completely. Must not shift in front of humans, he tried to remind himself as he searched the dark alley, sniffing for his mate’s unique scent. There, deep in the shadows. The young blond was wrapped around Shane’s waist and neck like he belonged there.
Growling loudly Dimitri strode over to where the two men where hidden, his hands changing into claws as he itched to grab the little interloper and tear his body to inch sized bloody pieces. He couldn’t and wouldn’t hurt his mate, but he could and definitely would shred the little blond until he wasn’t a threat to Dimitri’s mating again.
“Dimitri, stop damn it!” Shane called out in a low voice as he carefully wound the young blond’s arms from his neck. “This is not what you think.”
Dimitri stopped himself, just, and watched as Shane spoke in a low voice in CJ’s ear and then gave him some money. CJ looked up at Dimitri and scowled at him and then took off back into the club. Shane flung out his arm and grabbed Dimitri by his belt loops and smashed him into the same wall he had been leaning on while he was entangled in his blond. But Shane’s eyes weren’t full of passion, Dimitri noticed. His mate was pissed off with him, big time.
“You just cost me some valuable information, fuck wit. Now what the hell did you think you were doing?” Shane snarled at him in a low voice.
“Is that how you get all of your information, detective,” Dimitri snarled right back. “By giving sexual favors to your tipsters?” Fuck, with Shane so close Dimitri could barely breathe. His cock was so hard in his jeans that it hurt and he couldn’t break his stare with his mate. Man, this guy was awesome when he was angry.
“Have you ever done anything with a man,” Shane asked quietly as his assault on Dimitri’s neck and chin continued. Dimitri shook his head. There was no way he would have ever considered doing anything remotely sexual with anyone from Jacobs Lake – that would have been enough to get him shot, beaten, or at the very least expelled from the pack.
“So you’ve never known what it’s like to have another man handle your cock.” It wasn’t a question this time but Shane’s hand was working its way between their bodies and seconds later Dimitri felt Shane’s quick hands deftly undo Dimitri’s jeans. The cold air hitting his cock was a relief and Dimitri groaned as his hard length was wrapped firmly in Shane’s grasp.
Shane’s hand explored Dimitri’s length before gathering the pre-come and using it to smooth his way up and down over Dimitri’s shaft. Unable to help himself, Dimitri groaned again as he thrust himself up into the channel created by his mate’s hand. The tension was so perfect. The calluses on Shane’s hand added to the friction and Dimitri knew he had never felt anything so exquisite in his life.
“I bet you taste delicious. When I get you in my bed,” Shane promised as his hand continued their magic, “I am going to strip you down and take you apart. My mouth will be the first man’s mouth you’ve shot your spunk down the throat of. I will lick you, and suck you and drive you to distraction before I roll you over and rim the hell out of your ass. I’m going to tongue you, finger fuck you and spread you wide to get you ready for my big cock.”
Dimitri groaned as he pictured the things that Shane was saying. He had never been so turned on in his life. Shane’s hand pressure and speed on his cock had increased and Dimitri knew he was close to coming.
“And then, when you are positively begging for it, and you will beg,” Shane continued in his ear, “I am going to slide my fat cock straight in your willing hole. I am going to fill you up so far you will feel me in your throat. I am going to pound into you so hard, so deeply that you won’t be able to think of anything but me and the way I am making you feel. You’re going to feel what it’s like to be possessed, to be owned, and when I shoot my spunk deep into your ass I’m going to make you mine.”
Shane growled his last words and it was that growl, combined with the vivid imagery that Shane had given him that drove Dimitri over the edge. He came groaning Shane’s name as his semen pulsed out of his cock as it never had before. Shane kept working him until he was done, kissing his neck softly and nipping at the joint between his neck and shoulder.
