(Bound and Bonded 4)
(Can be read as standalone)
Ace is on a mission. On the run from his old pack, the enforcer is determined that cat shifter Teric must die. In his head it’s the only way he can regain his place in the Washington pack and the Bound and Bonded club. In an effort to meet his needs for Domination in the human world, Ace visits Whips, a predominantly human BDSM club and gets the shock of his life.
Devin is a five hundred year old vampire who has been searching for his one and only for the longest time. Working as a house sub at Whips was fine until one Master over steps his boundaries and Devin is left with time on his hands. Deciding on a whim to track down the delicious wolf shifter he had smelled at the club, Devin soon tracks down Ace…and then promptly wishes he hadn’t. Ace is a wolfist and refuses to accept Devin as his mate.
Misunderstandings are just one hurdle these two need to overcome, if they are ever to have their HEA. The enforcers from the Washington Pack are still looking for Ace, and when they find him it might prove the end for both Devin and Ace.
Warnings; this is a gay erotic romance about a wolf shifter and a vampire. The book includes graphic sex scenes between men, BDSM elements and coarse language.

“Why did you come here?” Ace demanded softly.
Devin desperately wanted to drop his head again – Ace’s eyes looked as though they knew every secret in his soul. But he hadn’t been given permission, and as he chose to kneel then Devin knew he would have to accept the situation, as it was, for now.
“I needed to see you,” he said. “We have a connection. So I tracked you down and intercepted the pizza delivery man.”
“So these are my pizzas?”
Devin nodded. He wished he could tell what Ace was thinking, but until he was allowed to bite the man, he had to rely on body language, and Ace wasn’t giving much away. Although his erection was still making a massive impression in that towel Ace was wearing.
“I prefer words,” Ace growled. “It would pay to remember that.”
“I understand,” Devin said quietly, swallowing hard as the timbre of Ace’s voice travelled down his spine and lodged firmly in his balls.READ MORE
Ace watched the action and his eyes seemed to glow – Devin guessed it was the man’s wolf trying to come out and play, but Ace simply said, “Have you eaten?”
Devin went to shake his head, and then quickly remembering what Ace had said, said, “No. Not today.”
Ace fiddled around with the pizza box lid and pulled out a couple of slices, handing one to Devin. Then he stopped and a puzzled look flashed across his face.
“You do eat, don’t you? Food I mean.”
“Yes, we eat food,” Devin said with a small smile. Maybe that was why the big wolf shifter was so reticent. Perhaps he didn’t know anything about vampires. But Ace didn’t ask anything else, just handed him the slice of pizza and started eating the piece in his other hand.
The two men ate in silence, Ace handing him an extra piece every time Devin had finished one. When the boxes were empty Ace handed Devin some napkins to clean his hands and removed the boxes from the coffee table, setting them on the floor. Then, still without saying a word, Ace nudged Devin’s head until it was resting against the bigger man’s thigh, his big hand resting lightly in Devin’s hair. Devin thought he could probably stay in that position forever – or at least until his knees gave out.
“There’s no place for a vampire in a wolf pack.” Ace’s stark words cut through Devin’s feelings of peace and belonging like a hot knife through butter. Stuff that – the knife kept going because Devin could feel it literally ripping his heart in two. Finding one’s amatus was a time for celebration, the end of a very, very long life spent otherwise alone. Vampires could enjoy sex with others, but they couldn’t form a connection with another unless they were Fated. Devin had been looking for Ace for over five hundred years.
And it was the wisdom of those five hundred years that stopped Devin from leaping to his feet and raging at Ace, or storming out of the door. Instead, he stayed on his knees, his head still resting on Ace’s thigh. Forcing himself to speak calmly he said, “Why is that, if you don’t mind me asking? I have known other wolf shifters take mates not of their own kind.”
Moving down Devin’s body, Ace sucked and bit, determined to leave his little vampire with as many marks on him as possible. Yes, he knew they would heal really quickly, but then, fuck it all, he would just do it all over again. All he knew was that now he had made the decision to make Devin his, he wanted it known to any fucker who dared look at his mate again.
Leaving a chest littered with hickeys, Ace’s nose went lower until it bumped against Devin’s cock – hard, leaking and just perfect. Without pausing for breath, Ace pulled that meat into his mouth, sucking firmly.
“Oh my fucking God,” Devin yelled, his hips thrusting upwards in an attempt to dive deeper. “Please, please, please,” he babbled and Ace chanced a look upwards to see Devin’s head thrown back on the pillows, his face scrunched up fighting his impending orgasm. Ace didn’t think he had ever seen anything so beautiful.
“You need to come, little fang? Can you keep it hard if I let you come now?”
Devin struggled for a minute to raise his head and Ace watched as the man’s eyes took on a feral quality. “I’m a vampire. I can come, and keep coming all fucking night if the incentive’s there.”
Ace smirked. “Or if I let you,” he added before bending back to his task. If anything, his words seemed to have made Devin’s cock harder, and before Ace had a chance to think, warm, creamy come coated the back of his throat. Swallowing it down, not wanting to miss a drop, Ace kept sucking well after Devin had come, determined to keep his mate hard and wanting. It seemed Devin was well on board with that plan given how much he was sinuously writhing and moaning under Ace’s touch.COLLAPSE

Wow!! These books in the Bound and Bonded series are really fantastic! I enjoy so many different types of book and this series has definitely been one that has kept my attention throughout. I am certainly glad to find out that Ms. Oliver isn't thru writing for this series. I have enjoyed each book, they have been centered around one wolf pack, and club, but each book has brought something unique to the table. It isn't the same monotonous read over and over with different names attached. Each has been able to hold its own, with twists and turns, and events that leave you always wanting more!! Great read, I highly recommend this series, and this author in general.

I really like this series and this book. I also love this author. This is book four in the Bound and Bonded Series and it does not disappoint. Ace has been raised to believe that wolves don't mate outside their species. Devin is an ancient vampire with some very serious issues of his own. Devin is definitely got his hands full convincing Ace that they really are true mates. There's a lot of action as well as some BDSM interactions. Ace may cause you to want to smack him but keep reading. This book helps give hope to the notion that bigots can learn. So Ms. Oliver when is the next one due?
I like fang and fur combo's because there is always blood. I'm just wicked like that. Another fun story in this universe where gay shifters have a BDSM club and gay pack. Pearson is still the hottest of the hot - but each set of couples holds their own. I cannot help thinking it's time for a menage or some other combo to break up the pattern. No?
