Most omega werewolves want a mate and pups, but Lee Aung prefers an unconventional party-boy lifestyle. Yet at forty-two, he’s stopped going into heat, which means he’s expired goods—no longer a fertile, young omega that alpha wolves drool over. So Lee uses Wet Heat, a synthetic pheromone, to reel in the alpha hookups.
After losing his job at the bank, Lee can’t afford to keep up his Wet Heat habit. His solution: scam free samples by pretending to be a happily mated test subject at Wet Heat headquarters. There, Lee spends two years being interviewed by the reserved alpha scientist, Cain, who at thirty-two is unmated and—up until this point—content with that.
Cain never really felt his alpha instincts, nor took part in the usual alpha/beta/omega social dynamics. But after discovering that Lee has been lying about his unmated status for two years, Cain finally admits that for the first time, he wants to court an omega. Unfortunately, he’s picked the one omega who doesn’t want to be courted.
This short story is a good read with a lot happening it.
Wet Heat is an omega pheromones that they put off when they are still young and can have babies. Once an omega hits a certain age they no longer carry that pheromone so they can put wet heat on and make it out that they still have what it is that attracts most alphas to them.
This is the position that Lee is in. I believe that even though is not still in heatand uses wet heat for his good times, he is actually still just looking for the one that will keep his attention and keep him on his toes. That is where Cain cones into play.
Think that Cain is content with not showing his alpha side until he meets Lee. Lee seems to push all the right buttons in Cain and brings out what comes natural, his alpha protective side. Lee does not want to rely on anyone but himself but after getting to know Cain more and more he does not seem to able to help himself and starts to fall for him even against his own will. But he does not do it without a fight and the one thing I can say about Cain is now that he has found what or who he wants he does not give up no matter what.
Even with the cat and mouse play that goes on between them, their is more to the story. Lee’s nephew finds himself in a dangerous situation and Lee does not know who to trust. Is it Cain that is after Shane or is it someone else?
I enjoyed reading this book. It was very entertaining.
