Amanda's life was never easy. After escaping a manipulative and abusive ex, she works a crumby job and uses alcohol and promiscuity to unhealthily cope with her unresolved trauma. She definitely is not looking for a relationship, and if she knew about mates, she certainly wouldn't be looking for one of them, either.
Porter was focused on working and supporting his growing pack as beta. He wasn't looking for or expecting his mate, but when he finds his human mate at a club, there's no going back for him. Now, he just needs patience until she stops fighting and accepts it, too.
This story is a stand alone spin-off from The Alpha's Other Woman. It is mature due to substance abuse, violence, sexual content, toxic behaviour, and other adult themes. Not for the under 18 crowd.
