Shifters of Bram book 1
Jayden had accepted the fact that he was a monster. His homicidal urges were not ones he could easily ignore. Even if the people he hurt were horrible, it didn't change what he was. And being taken in by Stephan Everwood at fifteen didn't change it either. But ten years later he finds himself struggling to be someone he's not. Then despite thinking most of his emotions had been lost years ago, he finds love. He discovers that not only is he not as empty inside as he thought, but that his monster is more present than ever before.
Stephan would freely admit he had some issues. His self-doubts could be unrelenting and his need to fix things tended to, at times, go too far. It blinded him to Jayden’s struggles. In the end his refusal to listen, to understand what Jayden was trying to tell him had unfortunate results. When he finally sees his mistake, finally accepts who Jayden is, he must also face all that he had locked away inside himself.
Their difficulties brought them together. Their love healed them. And when the past tried to tear them apart, their darkness saved them.
