Grey and Bleu had been best friends for their whole lives – living in close proximity to each other and always doing everything together. Bleu knew Grey was quite arrogant and took Bleu for granted, but it didn’t change his feelings for Grey. Even though Bleu knew Grey wasn’t interested in him, the two men remain in each others lives, until one passionate afternoon changes everything between them.

I found this to be an interesting and at times bittersweet story. Grey is a difficult character – complicated and layered. He was hard for me to grasp at times. I was really pleased the author showed a few of the sections from Grey’s perspective as this really helped me work out where Grey was coming from and understand that he wasn’t quite how he portrayed himself to others. I really empathized at times with Bleu, especially in his longing for Grey and how Grey seemed to treat him so poorly in return. While I was glad there was a solid explanation behind it I never really felt fully on board with how Grey treated Bleu in the past before they deepened their relationship.

I’ve not read many werewolf and omega style stories so the world and paranormal settings came across to me as fresh and interesting. I thought the author did a good job balancing the world information-dumping and progress of Grey and Bleu’s emotional and romantic relationship. Grey’s mean behavior aside I thought the plot moved forward fast enough to retain the reader’s interest but slow enough it never felt like the two men were just racing directly for the bedroom with no connection between them

The final sex scene is fairly intense and while it’s certainly erotic and thrilling I’m not sure it will be every reader’s cup of tea. The binding/knotting ritualistic side to Grey and Bleu’s new romance was certainly eye-opening for me and quite a different reading experience.

Sexy and very descriptive, I found this to be an intense short story. I enjoyed the world building and came to appreciate the differences in the two main characters.
