Pryderi has known Nate was his mate for weeks—way too long not to tell him. But Pryderi grew up with rejection, and he isn't sure he has the courage to possibly face it again, especially coming from the man he's been falling in love with from afar and who represents his future. He's not going to gain anything by watching Nate from afar, though. Nate's world gets upended over just a few days. First Pryderi, the cute Nix he's noticed more than he likes to admit, tells him they're mates, then the brother he thought was dead for the past ten years suddenly comes back with the Beasts after him. Nate isn't sure how to deal with any of them, but Calvin has always been the center of his world, and that hasn't changed. Pryderi has a hard time getting through to Nate, who's terrified of losing him like he thought he'd lost his brother. The fact that Pryderi is working undercover in Nate's bar to try to find the last members of the Beasts still in town is making things both worse and better—and more than a little complicated.
