Derek is sick of being treated like he’s property and he’s sick of his family pressuring him to find a mate. So the obvious solution is to fake a relationship with Stiles Stilinski, the annoying lacrosse player and alpha that Derek may or may not be pining over anyway.
Stiles asks the stranger standing next to him at the bar for help avoiding his creepy ex boyfriend.
Stiles and Derek wake up married in Vegas. Well, they would have if it was legal.
In which Stiles is the president’s son, Derek is his bodyguard, and Papa President orders them to pretend to be in love for the sake of gay rights.
Five times Stiles and Derek pretend to be boyfriends, and the one time they didn’t have to pretends at all
Derek Hale is a SMEA (Supernatural and Mythical Enforcement Agency) agent and a string of unusual murders in NYC are found connected to those popping up in LA. With Scott and Stiles in tow from New York…well they become the number one murder suspects and Derek has to go undercover and pretend to date Stiles to make a break in the case.
Derek is a hotshot businessman, Stiles is his cranky assistant, complications arise, and the fall in love. Mostly in that order
“You know you’re allowed to ask for vanilla sex, right?” he says, afterwards. “We can do whatever you want. That’s kind of the point.”
Derek doesn’t respond.
In which Derek has been invited to the Greater Pacific Northwest Alpha Symposium (that’s not what its called, Stiles, stop saying that), and showing up unattached would mean an arranged marriage. When the rest of the pack objects, he agrees to let Stiles come along to pose as his mate. Derek is reasonably sure that he’s not going to make it out of this weekend alive.
To track down a rouge Alpha who’s endangering their pack, Stiles and Derek must go undercover at a Hawaiian couples retreat. Of course, this means that the two of them have to fake a relationship well enough to fool their supernatural hosts, or risk getting kicked out. Sharing a bed, hanging out poolside, tracking down a murderous Alpha,,,should be easy, right?
“Three weeks,” Derek says.
“Still don’t want to,”Stiles says.
“I’ll pay you,” Derek says, and that,,,that has Stiles interested. Alf’s Antique’s may be a great job, but it’s not a high-paying job, and half of Stiles’ tuition is coming from financial aid, so…
“How much,” Stiles asks, “are we talking here? Because I know your family, dude. And it’ll be kind of awkward after.”
“My family thinks you’re some sort of fucking gift to the world”, Derek seethes, like he’s jealous. “they’ll probably be pissed at me when we break it off, so don’t worry about that. Five hundred bucks.”
“A thousand,” Stiles says, because screw ethics. Also, the Hale family is loaded. Derek can deal.
