All Emmeline Lawrence wants in life is perfection. The perfect home, the perfect car, the perfect career—everything would be flawless if she could just get one cantankerous shifter out of her mind. As her thirtieth birthday approaches, Em forms a plan to move past Thorne for good: find the perfect man—or any man—as long as he isn’t a wolf. Fate provides, but when Em gets exactly what she wants, will it be what she needs?
Thorne Black is fighting a losing battle. His feelings for Em are growing, his newfound abilities are overwhelming—and he’s keeping them both a secret from his pack. Now he’s on guard duty, suffering as Em dates her way through the eligible bachelors in Fairview. Thorne knows his chance is slipping away with each new suitor she brings home. Can he swallow his pride to win Em’s heart?
A single night in Em’s apartment rocks their fragile friendship and sets them up for something more until a handsome stranger waltzes in and sweeps Em off her feet. He’s got all the appearance of perfection, but the new guy might not really be what he seems. With the world around them crumbling, will Thorne and Em find a way to connect or will their differences tear them apart for good?
