Payne has been living with the assassins for four years, and he's finally in a place where he feels he has something to offer. He graduated from high school, and along with Greg, he's a participant in a council program that trains the future council assassins. When he meets his mate, he thinks his life is as perfect as it could be.
Until his mate rejects him.
Rob moved in with the assassins to help Jasper. At first, he doesn't understand what Payne means when he says they're mates—it's just not possible. Payne is young and handsome, while Rob has always been more focused on his work than his personal life. He feels there's been a mistake and that he can never be good enough for Payne.
What if Payne feels the same?
Payne and Rob both feel they're not good enough for the other, but they're mates, and nothing can change that. Can they get over their insecurities and find their way to each other? Or will they think they know better than fate itself?
