Karl has found an ideal hookup partner in Teddy. Their kinks align wonderfully, and they click outside the bedroom as well. There would be relationship potential if it weren’t for one problem: Teddy is an empath, and he’s convinced himself that he won’t need to be submissive once he bonds with an anchor.
While Karl wasn’t initially looking for commitment, his affection for Teddy grows into love, and he's ready to make the lifelong promise of being Teddy’s anchor. This sends Teddy fleeing, because he’s determined to avoid becoming the latest victim of empath abuse. Karl wants nothing more than a chance to prove that being a Dom and a responsible anchor aren’t mutually exclusive, but first, Teddy has to stop running.

Love may be within his reach … if he is able to trust in it.
Gabe Thorne was disgusted by his sister’s plan to purchase an empath. She wanted someone who would be compelled to please her, and only her sudden death interrupted the plan.

by Jessie Pinkham on 2018-02-21
Love can be found when you least expect it ... if you take a leap of faith.
Cole Gallagher never intended to date an empath. Empaths bond for life, and they like to keep their bonded anchor happy, which is more responsibility and power over another person than anyone ought to have. Despite his lack of interest in being an anchor, Cole gets talked into meeting a coworker's empath cousin, and he genuinely likes the man.
Aiden is everything Cole wants in a partner: charismatic, witty, cute, and a lot of fun. The catch is that he only has a few months to find an anchor, so Cole faces pressure to quickly make a lifelong commitment. When Aiden is kidnapped, Cole has to decide whether he will let his fears win and walk away, or take a chance on love.
