In a post-apocalyptic world, the only way to stay alive is to join a crew, and the only way to do that is to survive the hunt…
Ryo Ishikawa has survived for years on his own, living on the edges of what used to be the city of Tokyo. But when his beautiful sister, Kirei, returns home, Ryo knows that the two of them won’t make it alone. The only option is to join a crew, and the biggest, baddest of them all are the Owari.
The Owari, however, have a gruelling initiation process. If Ryo wants to be accepted by them he will have to not only make it to the end of the hunt, but also impress his hunter, Hikaru… and Hikaru is not an easy male to impress. He will expect more than just strength and guile from Ryo… he will expect complete submission…
“Thank you, Hikaru,” he whispered.
And his words did something, something Ryo did not expect, maybe Hikaru did, Ryo didn’t know. But in an instant something changed between them. Or did it simply click into place? Ryo wasn’t sure, but suddenly Hikaru was standing right in front of him, looking down, his eyes burning.
“You can thank me better than that,” he said and the next thing Ryo knew he was being pulled into Hikaru’s arms.
Ryo let it happen. He looked up. He locked eyes with Hikaru. And he knew it was coming before it even did.
They wrapped their arms around one another and then Hikaru was pressing his lips onto Ryo’s. He kissed Ryo with the fierceness that Ryo would always have expected from him. With a fierceness that Ryo knew then that he needed. He was too strong for anything less. Hikaru knew that.
And so, they kissed, and minutes passed, and the wind whipped around them, and when they pulled apart it was clear that everything had changed.
“I’ve wanted to do that from the first moment I saw you,” Hikaru said.
Ryo’s cock was aching in his pants. It had never ached in such a way before. He wanted his hunter. There was no escaping that now. And hadn’t he known it from the first? Deep down? Hadn’t he, in some way, recognized the shivers for what they were?
“Hikaru...” he whispered.
Hikaru dropped a kiss on his head. “You taste like Nashi.”
“I didn’t expect—” Ryo said, but his words were silenced when Hikaru kissed him again.
Ryo felt the other man’s erection press against him as their tongues touched. The very prospect of that made him ache all the more harder.
“I didn’t expect it either,” Hikaru said as they eventually pulled apart. “But this is where we are and this is what is happening.” He paused. “We just have to work out what the hell we’re going to do now.”
