Will they be able to help him find the Little he lost?
“I’ve been alone a long time,” Rafe began.
“And…” Aadya softly prompted when he trailed off.
“…I don’t want to be alone anymore.” He clutched the sloth closer. “Her death tore me up, bad. I still struggle at times with it, but I don’t want it to rule my life anymore.”
“That’s the first step of healing, boy.” Beck wrapped an arm around Aadya.
Rafe gave a shaky sigh. “Yeah.” He cleared his throat. “I told a friend not that long ago, that I was ready to try again – and she swung into matchmaker mode, not realizing that this was something I had to do myself.”
“Vivica.” Beck guessed. “She has a reputation of being a bit of matchmaker at the club.”
“Well earned,” Rafe agreed. “But this healing process is something I have to want. To be willing to do, if you know what I mean?”
“Of course, mon ange.” Aadya clasped Beck’s hand off screen. His words would be telling – if they’d actually found their boy or not – in him.
“I’m glad you understand.” Relief showed on Rafe’s face. “I want what you and Poppa Bear have to offer, but…” he frowned. “…it scares the piss out of me at times.”
A LITTLE IN DENIAL, BOOK 3 of The Hidden Little Secrets Series by Dakota Trace
It is said there are three sides to every story: his, hers, and…his?
Beck Doane is the ultimate Papa Bear. Big, buff and cuddly, the CEO and founder of Se Coller, runs an upscale but very private firm that offers cuddling services to those who can afford him. But as of late, he’s been searching for the perfect Little boy or girl to cuddle on a permanent basis. The only fly in the ointment is that he wants to share everything, including his Little with his lover and best friend Aadya. She’s the mommy to his daddy, and there can be no Papa Bear without Momma Bear.
Aadya Durand is the fiery counterpart to her mild-mannered lover. A strong proponent of nature preservation, and urban renewal, she’s a force to be reckoned with. But when she’s not campaigning or raising awareness, she keeps the home fires burning for Beck, assuring him that their Little is out there – just waiting to find them. Then fate intervenes and drops Rafael right in her lap. With a little persuasion, she convinces the young man to make an appointment with Se Coller, because if there was ever a Little in need of some cuddling it was him.
Rafael Dominquez is many things. In his public persona, he’s an in-demand wildlife photographer, an advocate for urban relocation and a seemingly easy-going guy. But under it all, he’s a grieving Little who lost his Mommy unexpectedly. Then he meets Aadya, a feisty Frenchwoman who reminds him of his lost mommy. His aching heart wants the structure she offers but she comes with a Daddy who refuses to let him hide from what he truly needs.
So, the story begins. The only question remains will Beck and Aadya be able to help heal Rafael’s broken heart…
