Title: A Change of Plans
Series: Alpha & Omega
Author: Lisa Oliver
Alpha and Omega series #2.5
Detective Sully Roberts spent his life living a lie but when his best friend Zander mated with Terry, Sully was thrown into a world where wolf shifters looked human and true mates were real. Of course, as a human he never expected to find a mate. Zander explained they were rare and while he dreamed of finding someone to call his own, he’d settle for getting his father off his back. In the meantime, Sully was doing his best to climb out of the closet; not easy, even with new friends by his side.
Gunnery Sergeant Quentin Thorne, Q to his friends, lived for the armed forces. After spending eight years in the Marines, he was on leave pondering his re-enlistment. Something was holding him back and it wasn’t just his wolf. Deciding to visit his brother Richard, he’d barely got off the plane, when he was assailed with a scent he hadn’t known he was waiting for.
Two career men; one bite would change everything. But not everyone accepts their union. When a fire breaks out and Sully is wounded both men have to seriously consider a change of plans.
Note: This short story is a spin off from Dancing Around the Cop, book two in the Alpha and Omega series. While it can be read as a standalone, you will understand more about the secondary characters if you have read that book first.
This book is an M/M true mate romance. It depicts intimate scenes between males.
Q parked his rental in front of the address he’d been given, quickly scanning the area. The neighborhood was good; house small; no obvious concerns, but it was hard for him to shake the habits of a lifetime. His hand was on the door handle when Sully came out of his house. As he turned to lock his front door, Q was afforded a beautiful view of what could only be described as a fuckable ass. Oh damn, this is going to be a long evening. Smile. Richard said to smile. He was sure his cheeks creaked as he tried it.
“Everything, okay?” Sully asked as he slid into the passenger seat, his scent hitting Q’s nose like a bomb. “You looked worried about something.”
“I was trying to smile,” Q said, giving up the attempt and started the car. “Richard said it would make me look more approachable.”
Sully’s smile came easily. “Honest. That’s a good start and if you don’t mind me saying so, you’ve got nothing to worry about in the looks department.”
Oh gods, is my wolf dancing? What the hell? Q grunted his thanks and got the car moving. He had a sneaky suspicion he was meant to say something positive about Sully’s looks in return. Unfortunately, the only compliments he’d given in fifty years were of the “good job soldier” variety. “Did you have problems on your job last night?”
“Nothing I haven’t faced before,” Sully said, watching out his side window. “The man was high on something, waving his rifle around. He held a woman and two children hostage. When he wouldn’t stand down, he was clipped on the arm, fell to the ground and the woman started screaming at us because he was hurt. Children crying, not sure what’s going on.” Sully’s sigh was long and heartfelt. “I hate it when that happens.”
“I know the feeling,” Q said. “But you’re part of a good team, right?” Comradeship was something that always helped lessen the impact of a negative situation. It didn’t take it away, or minimize the horrors of what was seen, but sometimes, just knowing someone else was going through the same thing did help.
“Depends on your definition of a team,” Sully said. “For a long time, it was just me and Zander; we worked as partners on the vice squad. Then…I stuffed up. There’s no other way to say it and now I’m with a group of guys already stirring shit because I’ve been seen out with Zander and Terry.”
Frowning, Q risked a quick look at his mate. “Being gay’s not a crime, especially among shifters.”
“Maybe, maybe not, but don’t you get strange looks when you go out with guys?”
“I guess we’ll find out.” Q parked two shops down from the restaurant his brother assured him Sully would like.
“Wait,” Sully said, and Q looked down to see his hand on his arm. Seeing him watching, Sully immediately removed it and he’d have grabbed it back except for the confusion on Sully’s face. “You’re not gay? Then why are you doing this? Going out with me?”
I have been writing gay erotic romances for just over three years now, and absolutely love my characters and the wonderful readers who support me. My current series include: The Cloverleah Pack Stockton Wolves Bound and Bonded (now finished with six books) Alpha and Omega Shifter's Uprising (With my son Thomas J. Oliver) The Gods Made Me Do It (a Cloverleah pack spin off series) Balance and under the pen name Lee Oliver: Northern States Pack Arrowtown As you can guess I love men who love men, vampires, shifters, Fae, and the true mate trope. In every book, I ensure there is no cheating, and there is an HEA - every one of my books can be read as standalone. In my head two (or three) men may be mates, but it takes a special kind of journey to find love, and that is the ambition I have for every single one of my MCs. I love to hear from my readers so feel free to get in touch via my blog, Facebook, or Twitter profile.
