A young man and a wolf appear close together. The young man is dark-haired the wolf has pure white fur and amber eyes. The young man is holding the wolf close to himself in an almost possessive manner. They seem like they belong together.
I am an Alpha werewolf who has been looking for his mate. Until I find him (yes, I am gay, my pack is pretty much open to sexuality), I am allowed to have fun with other guys. I’m known as a player but that’s okay because once I find my mate, my wolf and I will be truly monogamous.
Then I find him. My mate (You can decide how we meet— make it meet-cute type). But then my mate says that he is an asexual. What the hell? What does he mean, asexual? Does he mean that I cannot have sex with him ever? That he will never enjoy sex with me? How can I make him fall in love with me then?
But my wolf and I are determined to romance my mate; even if I have to join AVEN forum (which I thought at first as forum for AVIAN shifters) and talk around to couples with asexual lovers for tips. Because I will have my HEA with him, right, dear author?
PS: No D/s or BDSM, no “baby” as endearment please!! (And keep the endearment on the minimum, I dislike excessive endearment), and no sex before halfway (remember, the mate is an asexual!!), and I prefer a kind of humorous type of story about a werewolf who wants to woo his asexual mate

Review: Cute and sweet story. It was intriguing reading about an alpha wolf and his asexual mate and how they coped with it. Though some of the story seemed a little off and others seemed rushed nevertheless it was interesting reading about Aidan and Brandon circumstances as they grow closer. I would have preferred more of Aidan’s point of view as the story was mostly told in Brandon’s.
Brandon and Aidan seemed made for each. I loved both characters personalities throughout. It was an enjoyable read on a subject I was not really familiar with. It was informative and a delight to read although at times I was confused.
