Blurb: Lovers and best friends, the unmarked Nick and Barrett risked everything to present themselves as a bonded pair. They thought they were safe, but things are changing…
Nick and Barrett aren’t soulmates. Lovers for years, they’ve rolled the dice and taken a gamble on presenting themselves as a bonded pair. They knew the risks, but think they’re safe. They’re well over the age when soulmarks usually appear, and none of their friends or family are any the wiser.
Until now. After exposure to the incendiary reunion between his friend Ivan and Ivan’s soulmate Robbie, Nick’s soulmark has begun to emerge.
And Barrett’s hasn’t.
Faced with a devil’s choice, Nick and Barrett are forced to confront the real possibility of being driven apart—unless they can fight the animal urge to find their mates. Do they have what it takes to stand in defiance of double jeopardy, all for the sake of love?

Lisa’s Review: ♥♥♥♥4 Hearts
This is book two in the series and they should be read in order. It will give you an insight into all of the characters and a way of life for them. This was a pretty good story the way each character mixes.
Nick and Barrett have not been marked as soulmates. However, they have spent their time together as lovers and best friend. They let the world think that they were a bonded pair. They figured they were safe because they were older than those who get the bonded mates. They love each other more than anything.
Then it happens one night, Nick has a mark showing up on the back of his neck. Barrett thinks his heart will break. They know that if they are not with their bonded that it will be severe pain. Although Nick has the urge to bite Barrett, they still don’t know what is happening. Then a friend notices a mark on Barrett, do they take the chance to look or do they keep pretending.
These two make the perfect couple. There is so much love between them, that they are willing to go through the pain from not being with who they are bonded to just be together. To fear that they are not bonded yet go against what they were taught is probably the hardest thing for them to do. They would not give up on each other. Although the fear is there, that they will lose what they want most. What they want most is each other.
This is a fascinating story that will catch your attention and will keep it. I love the way they just come together perfectly. This story just flows off the pages for you. It has the mix of angst, bits of pain and happiness. I would recommend reading this if you like a touch of the paranormal world, sexy men, hot passion, excitement and a little bit of quirk to it.
Shorty’s Review: ♥♥♥♥4 Hearts
Nick and Barrett have been together forever it seems. Then one day out of the blue Nick’s Soulmark shows. Devastated that Barrett doesn’t have one as well they both start stressing out over the possibility of losing each other.
Very emotional journey for two handsome men in fighting the pull to find out who is Nick’s soulmate. It broke my heart to see them struggle against the inevitable. Was very happy with an ending I didn’t see coming right away and some hot sex between Nick and Barrett.
