After Christina loses her job, an unexpected trip to London to take care of her uncle may be just what she needs. Once there, she realizes the reason behind her trip was an elaborate lie. Although Christina is ready to leave, her family convince her to stay. When she meets Finley, the captain of the Winchester Wyverns, she is still determined to go back home. Their connection is electric. However, her past relationships with athletes have been disastrous. Christina knows she should run far away from him, but every time she sees him, she wants to climb him like a tree.
Finley is drawn to Christina the moment he sees her after a match. She’s the cousin of his teammates and getting her alone is a challenge. Once he gets her on her own, he needs to convince her that he’s different from the men in her past. With each passing moment, she quickly becomes his addiction.
When Christina’s horrible past crashes into her life in London, the unthinkable happens, tearing her world apart. Can Finley help Christina piece together her heart while showing her how important she is to him? Will they find a way past the pain to the love that could forever change their lives?
“I’m gifted in the mystical arts, I’m a kick-ass tarot reader, and I’m a touch psychic.”
“I call bullshit on all of that. You talked to Imogen, didn’t you?”
“Well, duh. So, when were you going to tell me about Garrett, the asshole?”
“I wasn’t sure it was going to be a thing,” Christina said.
“It’s a thing. Every time he texts me, it freaks me out. Now, he says he’s on his way here. I don’t know if he is just screwing with me or if he is serious.”
“Serious or not, he is acting like a total stalker on top of being king of the douches. So, when are we telling your family? I bet they would have some choice words about all of this.”
Christina sighed. “Imogen is calling a family meeting apparently. I’m still on the fence about whether they need to be involved or not.”
Ruby marched over to Christina and pulled her over to the bed to sit down. “You need help. If for some reason that douche canoe comes over here and hunts you down, you need support. Who better to support you than cousins who have lots of muscles and an uncle who has power?”
“I know you’re right but there is just a part of me that doesn’t really think Garrett is going to do anything. Why would he come over here? I never led him on. I only ever told him no, even when he kissed me.”
“I know, hun. But Garrett isn’t used to losing. He won’t be happy till he gets you and then gets tired of you just as quickly. He will be in for a world of hurt if he manages to come over here.” She reached into her suitcase and pulled out a pink taser.
“How in the world did you get that through security?”
“I am the ultimate at packing. Plus, it looks like a part for my computer.” She smiled and aimed the taser around the room.
As Ruby pointed her taser, Christina’s door burst open. Dex stomped through. Ruby screamed and pulled the trigger. Before Dex could say anything, the taser darts hit him in the chest, causing him to fall to the ground screaming.
