Conceived from a vampire father and a dreck mother, Severin keeps his lineage closely guarded. If anyone discovers that inferior dreck blood flows in his veins, it could destroy his life, which is already complicated enough. Not only has Sev's father made a sudden and unwelcome reappearance, but Sev suspects he's been marked by an assassin seeking blood vengeance. The last thing he needs is to fall for his teammate, Arion Savakis, but he's already lost his heart to the notorious playboy.
Arion's overbearing parents had his course plotted before he was even born, but what his parents want for him isn't what Arion wants for himself. After finding out his new teammate, Severin, is gay, Arion develops a fascination for him that goes beyond curiosity. Their racy encounter just a month before was no fluke, and Arion realizes he's been living a lie about his sexuality his entire life, forcing himself to be with females because that's what was expected of him. But what he wants is a male, and not just any male. Arion wants Severin.
If Sev and Ari stand a chance at finding happiness with one another, they will have to confront prejudice, plotting, the threat on Sev's life, and even each other. But will it be too little too late?
This book contains strong profanity and explicit, consensual sexual content between two males.

The story of Sev and Ari was an interesting one. I have not read or listened to the first book and for the most part, this book serves as a stand-alone; however, there were a few sections that were a bit off. The writing style of Donya Lynne captured my imagination and made me want to stay with the story and I found myself routing for our protagonists. Though I will admit that I wanted to throttle Ari on several occasions. I understood Micah's frustration with the two of them. The story was full of intrigue, mystery, and lots of hot sex. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed the narration of Mikela Drew. This is the first time that I listened to a M/M story with a female narrator but she did a phenomenal job adding to the story. I was a bit caught off with several of the chapters focusing on characters that I felt were not really part of Sev and Ari's story but then I realized that this was a series. All-n-all, a good book and I thoroughly enjoyed the escape and adventure.
