"Look. You're my mate so of course I want you. But I want Aubrey, too. And I think I've figured out a way to make this work for all of us. I can keep dating Aubrey, and then I can have you on the side. We can try out that whole friends with benefits thing. Aubrey doesn't have to know and me and you can still be together."
Those words came from Riley's mate, Tyler, after they finally completed the first part of the mating bond, sleeping together. The words completely crushed her.
When she found out Tyler was her mate two months earlier she had been thrilled, thinking that she'd finally found her Prince Charming. But that prince was currently attached to a royal bitch, and he showed no signs of wanting to let go of her.
Riley kept up hope that he'd change his mind until the day he asked her to be friends with benefits.
Will she stay with the mate who doesn't seem to deserve her love anymore, or will she take a chance on a stranger and pray he doesn't completely crush what's left of her already broken heart?
