Blurb : Matteo Dominguez spent centuries performing his duty with honor and dedication, never letting anything sway him from his responsibilities. When Nate Hathus comes into his life as a pre-transition warrior, everything Matteo has worked for is put into jeopardy. Matteo desires Nate more than he does anything in his life, even his duties as a warrior instructor.
When Nate seduces Matteo, he’s helpless to stop the man, his heart and libido guiding him down a path he’s afraid may end in his destruction. Nate has yet to go through his transition and the feelings he has now may not be those he has afterwards. Matteo agrees to see where things lead despite Nate’s assurance that he will still care for Matteo no matter what.
But when Nate’s transition doesn’t go as planned, Matteo is faced with a terrible decision. Does he save Nate’s life and risk having a mate who might not want him? Or should he risk losing the only man he’s ever loved?
My Review : Matteo, the centuries old vampire warrior has been in love with Nate, the pre-transition vampire student for some time. He has watched him from afar and tried to resist tempation. This plan goes all to hell when the precocious Nate decides to approach and bombard Matteo while he is naked in the shower. There is not much that can be done to stave off a nymph set on seduction when Matteo’s resolve is already severely tested. Matteo gives in and they both have splendid orgasms as soon as they touch. Matteo stands strong and stops short of giving Nate the mating bite. He explains to Nate that it was a mistake that cannot be allowed to happen again. Nate flees with tears streaming down his face. He can’t believe the man he loves has rejected him.
After a few days of walking around like a zombie, Matteo’s best friend Dimitri tackles him about the tension with Nate. Dimitri and his mate Alexander urges Matteo not to make the same mistakes that caused them so much emotional turmoil when they got together. Matteo decides to try to talk to Nate so that they can figure things out, but he gets sidetracked by his duties when Lance, the troublemaker from book 1 goes into his transition on his 25th birthday. He spends the whole night trying to help Lance through his difficult time and finally crashes once Lance has been through the worst.
Once he is rested , he sets out looking for Nate in his dorm that he shares with Lance. On his way there, he hears Nate screaming and he is just in time to pull Lance off before he rapes Nate. Matteo is beyond angry and he challenges Lance, a challenge he will definitely win. The winner of these warrior challenges has the right to violate and demean the loser sexually in front of all the Warriors. So said , so done, Matteo decides to fuck Lance into submission and teach him a lesson. This scene was really hot and truly worthy of voyeurustic heaven. It was only after finishing, that he noticed how much Lance enjoyed himself and Nate was just in time to see the impressive finale. Nate runs away hurt and upset by what he sees as a betrayal. As much as Matteo wants to be upset at Lance, he realized that maybe everyone has misconstrued Lance’s attitude. He sees Lance for the lonely , misguided little boy that he is on the inside. Matteo forgives Lance and understands that it is a possibility that he didn’t truly want to hurt Nate, but rather that he was confused with all the tumultuous emotions colliding in his new post-trans body.
Another crisis pops up when he goes looking for Nate; Nate has started his transformation early. Nate is scared and Matteo tries to soothe him as best as he can. He stays with him throughout it all and when Nate’s humongous post trans body is revealed, he begs Matteo to claim him as his mate. Although Matteo thinks this is a bad idea , he does it to prove how much he loves Nate. Soon afterwards, Nate delivers his rejection of Matteo by telling him he wants to explore with other guys sexually . Matteo is devastated by this turn of events. It takes him a few days of licking his wounds before he realizes that rather than take Nate’s words as rejection, maybe he can join his mate in exploration.
Nate and Matteo decides to add a third to play with. They try Rune, but when they are done they realize that Rune is too much into pain for their liking and they aren’t interested in the D/s lifestyle. This actually strengthens their bond with each other , helping them to appreciate their love for each other. It so happens that Lance offers himself for them to play with and this created a super sexy scene for all involved. Ooh la la, to be a fly on that wall😉. Matteo and Nate were very considerate of Lance’s needs, while at the same time they had their own private moment connecting as only true mates can. I guess it’s true that the couple that plays together , stays together. I see longevity in this couple’s future. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear.
Favorite Quotes : 1. No, we just want to rim your hole together,” Nate snickered before leaning over and licking Lance’s ass. “He tastes different than you do, Matteo.” “Let me taste,” I purred as I leaned forward and slid my tongue into Nate’s mouth. When we moved apart, we moved down to Lance’s ass and both started to lick his hole. “Oh fuck, you guys are going to kill me,” Lance moaned as we continued to open up his ass with our tongues. “Please, fuck me already!” (Hot, hot, hot, 😉 do try this at home.)
