The Alpha and His Ace - Ana J. Phoenix

"He doesn't want sex."

"What do you mean?"

 

WTF do you think he means?

 

I suspected this one was going to be a minefield. The world rules already make me feel snarly. Brandon, the werewolf main character, wants his mate (an asexual human named Aidan) to be a werewolf like him, but apparently that requires sex.

 

Also, I generally don't mind soulmate stuff, but the author did not write it well here.

 

At least this was free, and I'm reasonably certain that it's not going to end with Aidan murdering Brandon in a jealous rage after catching Brandon cheating on him (an actual thing that happened in one of the top 5 worst asexual romances I've read).
