Vance Gregory is an agent for Organization for Path Security. He is on a mission to bring down Marcus Rose, a powerful telepath who deals in mind-altering substances that allows him greater access to the human user's mind. During a surprise attack Marcus escapes; however, Ayan is abandoned and captured by OPS. Vance requests help from their captive Ayan, a low-level Path with unexplained links to Marcus. At first, Ayan refuses to help Vance and then finally agrees to the plan in exchange for his freedom. Once free, both men discover an intense attraction for each other. Their encounter with Marcus accomplished the completion to Vance’s mission, or so they thought. Meanwhile, Vance and Ayan explore the attraction between them. Their lovemaking builds a powerful mental bond, along with uncertainties, of the connection they feel. Ayan's powers begin to soar out of control and unwanted thoughts of Marcus become a risk to Vance’s psyche. The battle is not over and Vance has to decide between the adversary he hates and the man he loves.

Afterthought by Cat Kane is an intriguing story of gifted men with mind controlling abilities. Vance is a sarcastic fun loving telepath who enjoys his telepathic abilities. He adapts effortlessly to whatever circumstances he’s in. Ayan has uncertainties about his abilities and even fears what he may be capable of; however his actions are motivated by his love for Vance. The storyline is fascinating and well paced, the developed characters have a wonderful interaction and the lovemaking is sensual. I found Afterthought to be an impressive and enjoyable saga.
