No-Win Scenario by Cate Adams Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 45]
Summary:

(Prequel to Angels and Demons and The Vanguard

A split-second decision changes Jim’s life forever, as a desperate bid for survival results in a bond with Spock.  As Jim tries to understand their new connection, he must contend with his own inner struggles.  Surprising new enemies are revealed and unexpected threats emerge, and Jim must come to terms with the true significance of their bond before it is too late.

Excerpt:

He lay on the hard deck of the shuttlecraft, the air around him cold and growing colder.  His breaths came in gasps, now, as the oxygen slowly diminished.  Darkness appeared to surround him, but he managed to keep his vision fixed on the steady gaze of warm, brown eyes.  His head ached, not only from the effects of slow asphyxiation, but also from the recent hasty and intense joining with another’s mind.  He inhaled raggedly, his voice barely a whisper, “Kobayashi Maru, Spock….pretty sure…what you did is…cheating…never…let you…live it down…”.  The blackness expanded, and his body grew limp, his lips still curled in a final, defiant grin.
