Pierce may have a crush on Steve, his sweet, funny personal trainer, but he doesn’t plan to act on it. They have a great relationship in the gym but are also friends outside of it, and Pierce has no intention of jeopardizing that. Besides, he may be an omega, but he’s got a good handle on his body’s biology. He’s not worried he’ll accidentally take things too far.
Steve may have a crush on Pierce, his smart and incredibly hot client, but he’s definitely not planning to say anything anytime soon. Pierce can do way better than Steve, and anyway, Pierce is a pretty casual dater. What Steve wants is anything but casual. And that’s not just the alpha in him.
When Pierce goes to Steve’s gym one snowy afternoon to work out, he thinks nothing of the fact that he’s in heat. He’s taken his libido inhibitor and is wearing his odor blocker, so there’s no chance of bothering Steve. Except, then the blocker wears off.
Steve wants nothing more than to keep himself under control, keep himself from doing something Pierce might not want. But Pierce might have something else in mind…
Steve is Pierce’s personal trainer. Both think the other is far out of reach. Steve is oblivious about Pierce’s appreciative ogling eyes, he even feels inferior.
When Pierce is going into heat he covers up the smell with blockers.
Steve as an Alpha does smell this covered up heating and has trouble to resist.
With the cold and snow Steve insists to take Pierce home.
The weather is getting worse so Steve has stay the night. As a good Alpha he wants to take care of Pierce but doesn’t want to push and Pierce... wants nothing more than that.
Oh my gosh this was a delicious read, I loved all the tension and when they finally give in they have the hottest sex. It is a short read and enough develops to make it a very appealing story. Their dynamic is really well put together, their personalities were engaging and endearing, gentle, straight, considerate and with some hot spicy sides. I loved that they were not a regular Alpha and Omega this fact made it even more appealing.
