AUTHOR’S BLURB: Brian is an omega. He and his best friend Dom rent an apartment not too far from the New Jersey town where they grew up, and they have a job waiting tables. Brian has been in love with Luke, an alpha friend of Dom’s, for years. Unfortunately, his excruciating shyness has made it impossible for him to take any opportunity to express himself to Luke, and he’s mostly hung out in the background.
Luke is a carpenter in central New Jersey, and he’s also and alpha. He’s been after Brian, his friend Dom’s roommate, for years, but he just can’t seem to get through to Brian and he’s just about at his wit’s end.
On one night, Luke’s roommates throw a house party. Dom attends, eager to get out and party. Brian stays home, too shy to put himself out there. Luke gives up on Brian and has a one night stand with Dom.
Luke and Dom don’t want anything more than that. Their desire to stay friends only doesn’t change when they discover that Dom is pregnant with Luke’s child. In fact, the emergency only brings Luke and Brian even closer together. They work out a plan for the future, one that allows for everyone’s happiness.
Dom’s very traditional parents have other plans. They will stop at nothing to ensure that Luke and Dom wind up together, regardless of Dom’s wishes. Will Luke and Brian get their happily ever after, or will tradition win over love?
