I thought I knew him. I really did. He was the beta of a true blooded alpha and he was my mate. What I didn't know was how dark his past was and how much he had been affected by it. I didn't know that he would need me more than I thought possible. I never knew being in his life would change me forever. Maybe if I had known I would have done some things differently. Maybe then I wouldn't feel so guilty about the person he had become. All I knew was because of me he became something different, he was gone. No longer was he just a beta, he was a bad beta, and he was mine. Warning: This is not a story about innocent virgins and their more than perfect mates who live happily ever after. Ashley and Dreydon are no angels and this is no fairytale. When fate puts together two less than perfect people you end up with a lot of heartache and obstacles to overcome. Will the two survive or will their pasts tear them apart?
