I’m working hard on beta’s Strength, book five in the Irresistible Omegas series. The plan is still to release later this month. Here’s a first sneak peek at the continuation of the love story between Bray, Kean, and Ruari. Please note this is unedited but fully copyrighted.
“Look inside yourself,” Ruari said softly to Bray. “What does your alpha want right now?”
Bray seemed to do as Ruari asked, his eyes turning distant for maybe half a minute. “He wants to be near Kean,” he said, wonder filling his voice. “I have about fifteen minutes now, so I’m gonna go hold him while he sleeps. Thank you.”
He kissed Ruari’s head, then let him go, but Ruari yanked him back and kissed him on his mouth, not relenting until Bray gave in and kissed him back, careful at first but then with passion. Ruari closed his eyes when Bray’s bold taste hit his tongue, and he moaned into his mouth. Good, he tasted so rich, so powerful. Then Bray lifted him up, and the omega wrapped his legs around him, letting out a little squeal when Bray walked him backward until he back was against the wall.
“Haven’t had my fill yet,” Bray whispered, then kissed him again, and it mirrored Ruari’s thoughts exactly.
They kissed for a long time, their bodies pressed together as their mouths explored and tasted, their tongues chasing and catching. “Is this okay?” Bray asked when he broke off the kiss. They were both panting a little, their chests moving as if synchronized.
Ruari frowned for a second, then realized why he was asking. “Yes. We’re still together when it’s two of us, not only when we’re with all three. You asked how you you were supposed to find your own spot with me. Well, this is how. We need to spend time together as well, and so do you and Kean. Yes, we need to be together with all three of us, but our one-on-one relationships should be strong as well.”
“It feels like cheating,” Bray said. “Especially when we’re…you know.”
Ruari grinned. “Dude, we were kissing.”
“Kissing can lead to more,” Bray said, a little defensive.
“Yes, alpha, it sure can,” Ruari teased him, wiggling his eyebrows until Bray smiled. Then he sobered. “We’ll need to talk about this when Kean is recovered, so I agree we shouldn’t do more than kissing until then, but this is okay, Bray. This is more than okay.”
Bray nodded. “I want to kiss you all over again, but I need to be with Kean for a bit.”
Ruari smiled. “Yeah, you do.”
