Of Gods and War - Book 3

second chance
friends to lovers
kickass heroine

“You two broke up after the ceremony?” He thought back to the past few months seeing her without Alex, he even thought about Ethan tiptoeing around her all the time, even James was too friendly to her. He felt the anger bubble up inside, “you’ve been broken up for months and you’re just now telling me?”

“I tried to tell you, but you didn’t want to hear it.”

“When? That’s not something I wouldn’t want to hear. If anything, that’s good news to me.” He ignored her taking offense to him. This was some bullshit for her to keep it a secret.

“The day after your ceremony. I went to tell you early, but you were adamant—”

“So, you let me cut you off for something like that?! Kai! You should have yelled at me! You have a damn voice and I know you know how to use it!” He shot up from the platform, clenching his fists. “How could you not tell me?!”

“I tried! You kept saying you were done and the night before you—”

“That’s because I wanted to give you freedom from me! Wanted you to be able to live your life with the guy who was obviously making you so damn happy!” He felt Tyr’s rage bubbling inside of him, “damn it, Kai! Argh! Tyr! Stop it!” He pulled at his hair, and took deep breaths, trying to keep his wolf inside of him. Tyr was on a rampage inside, clawing his way out. Cal had no idea what he would do if he got out.

Cal turned back to Kai, and watched her hold that same stoic face she wore for weeks after the rejection, “so, what then? Why did you guys break up? Or am I supposed to just know that too?”

She swallowed before looking up at him. “You know, it was a hard time for me, Callum. I had so much hope for us that night. Your coming of age. I was looking forward to that night for years. Did you know I counted down the days to it since I was fourteen?”

Cal frowned watching her get up and pace in front of him. Kai rarely ever let her feelings show and when she did, it was usually like him, explosive.

“I allowed myself to be vulnerable that night. When you watched me from up on that stage, and lied to the entire world, it hurt, Cal. I was so heartbroken that night. In the end, it turned out you knew already and knew what was going to happen.”

“You know why I did that, Kai.”

“I know. I don’t blame you for it anymore. I understand and am big enough to recognize why you did it. What pisses me off to no end is that we did this dance for years, Cal. I told myself that night, that even though I had my hopes up, I would still keep my feelings locked away until I knew for sure. I wouldn’t tell you how I’ve always felt until I knew for sure that we were going to be mates.”

“What do you mean?” He had a feeling he knew, but he needed the words. She needed to say it.

“We keep missing each other in everything. We push and pull at one another and we’re never on the same page! I broke up with Alex. Then we rejected one another. And it’s so frustrating that even without this bond anymore, I still feel exactly the same!..."

Hey there, if you are starting this, please know that this is the third installment of the Broken Mates series. If you happen upon this book without having read the previous two, it won't make sense and then nobody has any fun. The order is as follows: 1. Broken Mates 2. Strength in Darkness 3. Of Gods and War To my readers, Thank you for getting this far with me, my beautiful readers. I had no clue this was going to get this far this fast. I think I started this in...March? February? Well, it's June and here we are so...thank you for sticking with me all this time. I do post daily, and want to thank you for not giving me such a hard time those couple of days I was late. (Infant in the house and sometimes duty calls) I do plan to post daily here, but want to be honest about something. Something rather unusual is happening at my work and basically starting next week through November, I'll be working basically 12-16 hours a day 7 days/week. Not complaining...yet. I may have days where I don't upload and would like to acknowledge that I would rather upload something that adds value to the story or characters rather than something nonsensical that makes you go "ugh, wtf" at the end.  So here's my goal. If I miss any days, I'll work on either combining chapters or have a day where I upload multiple chapters when I ditch (I mean call in sick) for work. It's not fair if I upload horse crap and ask for your time to read it. That's just a waste. So anyway, please bear with me if you can. If you can't, I thank you for your time to read about my little world. :) Also, just a heads up. The next book is not based on these characters, but will absolutely be connected. I swear, if I call it number four, I will hate myself. It will be its own thing. Hate to use the term spinoff, but sure let's call it that. I'm super stoked about it, since it is the first thing I ever wrote, even before Kai. However, that girl consumed my mind from the moment I thought about her and so those in the next book had to wait a while.  Alright, fine. Jack. It's Jack. Jack was my OG, but Kai pushed him aside and said he needed to chill for a sec. I love his mate and her boys....okay, that's enough spoilers. Just know that characters from broken mates will absolutely show up at some point. Eventually, I would love to bring them all together in some kick-ass powerhouse move, but we'll see what happens.  Also, I already have it outlined. Alex is going to have his own story. I know, I KNOW lots of people wanted Alex to be with Kai, but it wasn't in the cards, okay? I have no clue when it will happen in relation to the (not) number four book, but will probably come after. Anywho, I need to end this rant since I'm just giving s**t away for free like it's candy. Again, thank you for your time in reading my books. I can't even believe how many of you have actually spent time reading them and stuck with me. I read your comments and have to hold back from responding a lot of the time because I just spoil everything (see above) but actually take into consideration the things you guys say because you're insanely perceptive and your comments mean a lot.  Okay....well, like I said in the other book's update, first chapter will be up tomorrow. Have a beautiful day, all!!
