[#391 Siren Everlasting Classic ManLove: Erotic Alternative Paranormal Romance, M/M, werewolves]
Detective Lewis Keating has had enough of cheating men. When a crooked cop steals a stack of files, it’s Lewis’s job to go through them and close out the ones he can. When a familiar case is found among the files, Lewis decides to question the one person who should be on his list.
Evan Triamade was once told he looked like he breathed pain. A control freak since childhood, the wolf quickly loses his handle on things when his aloof mate shows up to question him about an assault that supposedly happened months ago.
Their relationship is volatile from the start, and Evan is forbidden to see his mate by Alpha Maverick until their differences can be settled. Evan soon finds that convincing his mate not all men are cheaters is harder than he imagined. To make matters worse, Lewis has a drinking problem.
When Lewis is taken by the ex-alpha, Jackson, it isn’t Evan who rescues him but the smaller mates of the house and a tiger. Lewis thought living among humans was hard, but living in a world of were-creatures tests his very sanity.
Note: Each book in Lynn Hagen's Brac Pack collection focuses on a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, we recommend reading the series in sequential order.

More From Brac Pack
His eyelids lowered and a groan escaped his lips when warm lips touched his neck. Lewis let all thoughts go as Evan kissed his way down, pulling his T-shirt from his waistband and shoving it up under his arms as he circled one taut nipple with his moist tongue. There, on the floor of Maverick’s office, Lewis gave himself over to Evan, mind, body, and soul. He moved his hips around as Evan settled his weight between Lewis’s legs.
Lewis grabbed Evan’s hair, pulling him up so he could get lost in those deep amber eyes, eyes that had haunted him all week. “Kiss me.”
* * * *
Evan gave Lewis a throaty growl, climbing up Lewis’s body in a slow and seductive prowl, drinking his mate in with his eyes.
Evan did a reverse push-up, holding his weight on his arms as he lowered his mouth to Lewis.
Lewis placed his hands on Evan’s arms, holding them there loosely as Evan tilted his head, running his tongue over Lewis’s lips, nipping the bottom one. He pulled back when Lewis tried to take more. Evan had waited so fucking long for this that he feared it being over in a heartbeat.
Evan lowered his upper torso back down.
Lewis’s wide-eyed innocent look was merely a smoke screen, and Evan knew it.
Lewis’s hands moved from Evan’s arms and wrapped around his neck in one swift motion. Raw lust glittered in those beautiful eyes.
Yeah, it had been a smoke screen. Evan pushed up, grabbing Lewis’s shirt and lifting it to his wrists, locking them in place.
Lewis licked his lips as he panted, staring up at Evan.
Evan’s hand snaked between them, unfastening Lewis’s jeans and pulling his heavy and aching cock free. He gave one last nip to Lewis’s lip before leaning back and devouring his mate’s cock. Evan didn’t take lightly, and he wasn’t one to hesitate. He sucked his mate’s crown, circling his tongue around, and then backed off. He needed in his mate now.
“Tease,” Lewis hissed.
“Take these jeans off, and I’ll show you a tease.” Evan pulled at the waistband, bringing the fabric down to Lewis’s ankles, removing his shoes. Evan yanked them the rest of the way off.
“Socks…get rid of my socks. Can’t have sex with them on. It’s just weird.”
Evan quirked a brow at Lewis but did as he asked. Evan stood over Lewis, giving his mate an eyeful of what he had to offer.
“I’m impressed,” Lewis tried to joke, but the lustful way his mate was staring at him made Evan rock hard.
Evan lay back down over Lewis, fisting his mate’s cock in his hand. He kissed Lewis, pouring all his emotions into that one intimate act. A web of arousal spun around him as he squeezed his mate’s shaft, his thumb caressing over the leaking head.
Evan growled when the door was cracked open and a bottle of lube was tossed in before the door clicked closed.
“Damn, any privacy around here?” Lewis asked as Evan leaned over him, grabbing at the bottle. His mate took the opportunity to lick across Evan’s abdomen, the moist tongue taking him close to the edge.
“Are you complaining when it will get us both what we want?” He moaned.
Evan grabbed both of Lewis’s ankles in one hand, swinging Lewis’s legs up and over, and then pushing them back to Lewis’s chest. Lewis’s tight hole smiled up at him, and Evan’s teeth began to ache in desire to sample it.
He needed to be inside Lewis now, damn it. Now wasn’t soon enough to Evan. He lubed his cock with one hand, getting the slick stuff all over the place and giving a shit less about it.
He threw the bottle down and walked forward a step on his knees, his heart racing as his cock got closer to coming home. And Lewis was home. Evan knew it in his bones.
After their shaky beginning, he wasn’t taking any chances on waiting.
“Oh, god,” Lewis moaned as Evan thrust hard and deep. His mate bucked, wrapped his ankles around Evan’s neck, and bowed his back for him to go even deeper.
“Do you accept me as your mate, Lewis?”
“Yes, Evan.” Lewis groaned. “Just don’t stop. I’ll shoot you if you stop.” He gave a lust-driven warning.
Evan grabbed Lewis’s wrists, pulling him up and over to Maverick's desk, dropping his mate on his back as he lifted his right leg and planted it on the desk, driving into Lewis’s ass. Evan’s head fell back, his canines lengthening as his head rolled from side to side.
Evan lifted his head, staring down at the passion on Lewis’s face. That one look had Evan craving the bond.
Lewis howled when Evan sank teeth into his shoulder, sucking the bite wound as he powered his pelvis into Lewis’s ass.
