Ashley (Demon Elite #5)
Saving Iain means finding a small bit of redemption but what Ash gets instead is so much more.
Ashley Wilkins has done some bad things, torturing people until they give him the information he wants, but all that was in his past. Making amends for all those wrong doings will never happen. He knows that, but that doesn’t stop him from trying, which is why he takes a break from interrogation to save Iain Liron’s life. Iain is a recovering drug addict who understands all too well what finding forgiveness means. Can he make Ash see that he’s more than just his past sins?
Ash sat next to Max in the backseat of the SUV. The seating arrangement worked out well for him because Max never asked him why he was so quiet. He just put an arm around his shoulders. Ash wasn’t the cuddling type, but he had to admit that the small gesture from his friend was comforting.
The conversation in the car on the way to the extraction site was typical and put him at ease.
“Clair wants to go out on a date with a boy.” Wolf sat next to Max in the backseat with them. He was texting someone on his phone with a frown on his face, probably Clair.
“She is fifteen years old.” Cosmo sat in the front passenger’s seat.
Wolf sighed. “That seems too young to date. Plus boys her age are little fuckers that need their balls cut off.”
“I can probably help in that department. I do specialize in torture techniques.” Ash smirked. Max squeezed his shoulders.
“He doesn’t need you, Ash. All he has to do is tell Liam he’s letting Clair date, and Liam will kick someone’s ass,” Shade put in his two-cents from the driver’s seat.
“He’s backing up her plea for dating freedom, which is most of the problem. Two against one,” Wolf stated. The defeated look on his face said it all. Clair would get her date, despite the parental protests.
“Oh man, that sucks.” Cosmo laughed as he said it.
“Don’t you remember that age? I was a horny little fucker too. You’d think Liam would remember how he was. All boys think about one thing, and that’s sex.” Wolf looked at his phone as he said it, his voice trailing off at the end when his attention split in two different directions.
