Hi! It feels kind of strange to write an open letter to people I don’t know, disclosing personal—not to mention classified—information. But Paige is nodding at me, so I guess this is okay.
I went to college to become a psychologist because I’ve always wanted help people. After graduation, I got a job at the Department of Covert Operations so I could work with shifters like me. I didn’t take the job intending to ever become a field agent, but now that I’m in training to become on, I’m excited at the prospect. I’ll still help people and I won’t have to sit behind a desk to do it.
My boyfriend, Jayson Harmon, on the other hand, isn’t as thrilled about my career change. He’s exactly what I’m looking for in a man and I really care about him. He’s strong (physically and mentally), heroic, charming, romantic, and yeah, he’s attractive as hell, too! Problem is, he seems determined to push me away. I know he’s still dealing with injuries he sustained in Afghanistan and I want to help him get through this rough time in his life, but I have to admit, it’s wearing me down. I don’t know how much more I can handle. How can I help him when he refuses that help? This mission I’m about to head out on might be the last straw. I’m not sure if our relationship can handle something like that. And if that isn’t enough, the deputy director of the DCO is trying to talk Jayson into taking an experimental drug he claims will not only heal Jayson, but also give him shifter abilities. I’ve tried to talk him out of it, but I don’t think I was very successful. I’m scared he’s going to be something stupid and extreme while I’m away on this mission, and I won’t be there to stop him…

  1. Dear Layla,

    Drug him and take him to a remote cabin in the woods. One with a solid and secure cellar. Take lots of chain and he'll be yours forever.

    I speak from experience.

    Yours truly,

    1. *side eyes Christy* You're, umm, speaking from personal experience? :D

  2. Oh my goodness, I just read Christy's comment and I read that book...I think she penned it. I was just talking about you Bea, and had to pop over. I think I would enjoy this series. My favorite paranormal romance at the moment is BDB, which I am only on book 4.

    1. I'm about to start reading this one. I haven't read any in this series yet. I gave up on BDB years ago.

      Christy has been...feisty, lately, in her commenting. :D I think the California sun is getting to her. :P


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from my readers. Let;s talk!
