Love is supposed to last forever – or at least that’s what Alec Lightwood has always believed. Jay, his long-term boyfriend, helped him through the worst part of his life and Alec is eternally grateful. So the sex may be a little vanilla and sometimes ‘comfortable companionship’ feels a little more like ‘been there, done that’, but Alec is happy enough just having a live-in best friend, avoiding confrontation, and running his animal shelter – that is, until he meets Magnus Bane.
Magnus is an exotic dancer and an unexpected participant in Alec’s twenty-fifth birthday bash. Smart, funny, and sexy, Magnus is everything that Alec didn’t know he wanted, and their private encounter leaves him feeling guilty, confused, and incredibly turned on. When chance pushes them together for a second time and Alec gets to know the thoughtful – and surprisingly vulnerable – man behind the persona, he knows he’s in trouble. He can’t stop himself from wanting Magnus, but he can’t bring himself to let go of Jay. Torn between his burgeoning feelings and his sense of loyalty, Alec is forced to take full control of his life – and heart – for the first time since his brother died.
