Evan's life is hell—he's betrayed the trust Win and the other council assassins have in him, and he's allowed one of his marks to manipulate and blackmail him. He's not sure how to get out of the situation, or if it's even possible. He doesn't have time to deal with the fact that he lives with his mate and that he's been ignoring Greg for a while. Greg has known Evan is his mate since he arrived at the warehouse. He's stayed away because he can understand why Evan avoided him while he was still seventeen, but he's eighteen now, and he at least wants to know if there's the possibility of a future for them. Greg's push unravels the lies Evan has been building, and his secret comes to light. Will the other assassins—his family—forgive him for what he's done? Will Greg? Or will Evan find himself alone against the threat of his blackmailer and the people who are still trying to kill the assassins?
