    Summary

    so we strained after less and less as the barbs
    perhaps drew a little blood
    and we cut our way
    into the core to rid us of the fiber
    that would stifle every ut-
    terance between us.
    In our quest for that morsel,
    how we risked silence,
    risked even
    love.

    Summary

    Before Tony can even so much as scoff, he’s brought crashing to a halt by the rubbing of Adam’s thumb across the inside of his wrist. It’s a deliberate action, slipping under the cuff of his shirtsleeve, and Tony’s breath catches in his throat.

    After Adam's reappearance in his life, and achieving their third Michelin star, there's one more surprise in store for Tony.

    Summary

    Tony was holding his life together. For years he used heavy duty suppressants and beta scented cologne to hide what he truly wss. His first heats in his adolescence he spent alone. They were the most painful and horrific experiences of his life. It became the norm for him to hire discrete prostitutes when he went into heat. But after years of craving the bond with an alpha he could call his own it was becoming just as painful to do even that. He was sure Adam Jones was the love of his life but he'd never been able to work up the courage to out himself to anyone let alone the alpha of his dreams. Adam had also made it very clear he had no true interest in Tony in any capacity. So, life went on, Adam self-destructed and rose from the ashes a better man. But now Adam is starting to notice that something is going terribly wrong with Tony, the beta he thought he knew.
