Still suffering from the loss of her boyfriend a year ago, Alex has kept her distance from men. College was supposed to be full of parties and new experiences, but it’s all she can do just to paste a smile onto her face and fake a bit of happiness. She never counted on meeting someone new, but what happens when he breaks her heart?
Heartache after heartache leaves Alex wondering if she’s destined to be alone, and perhaps she’s trying to find love in the wrong way. Giving herself body and soul to each man who promises her the world doesn’t seem to be getting her anywhere, but she still believes that love exists, and she wants her happily ever after, no matter the cost.
But having stumbled into a fantasy world where shifters and fae exist, Alex has to wonder if her soulmate has fur or wings!

“Hunter,” Jonah said, sounding less than happy as he addressed his cousin.
“You were supposed to come straight home after class. Mom was worried,” the god said as he approached the table. “You know she needs our help until we’ve finished unpacking.”
Jonah shrugged. “I didn’t mean to upset Aunt Chloe. I made some friends and decided to hang out,” he said with a nod at our table. “Besides, I’m an adult. I don’t need a babysitter. I’m capable of coming and going without letting you know my every move.”
Hunter glanced around the table, looking disinterested, until his eyes landed on Alex. They looked at one another and the air felt supercharged. Alex forgot to breathe for a moment as her eyes clashed with his intense blue ones, but Connor cleared his throat, bringing her back to her senses.
“Why don’t you join us?” Nat asked with a smile.
His eyes never leaving Alex’s face, Hunter sat down in the chair on the other side of her.
“Hunter, this is Connor, Natalie, Gina and Alexandra,” Jonah said, pointing to each of them as he said their names. “Everyone, this is my cousin, Hunter Emerson.”
Hunter tore his eyes away from Alex long enough to say hi to everyone, but his gaze gravitated back to her, making her blush. Her body felt like it was on fire, and she felt the urge to lean against him. She wanted to touch him, to run her fingers through his hair. But even more, she wanted to know what it would feel like to have his lips on hers, to feel his hands on her body. She felt her cheeks heat and knew she was blushing. She ducked her head to get her hormones back under control.
He pulled her tightly against his body, kissing her, his tongue stroking hers in an intimate dance. When her bare breasts brushed against his chest, her nipples puckered and she desperately wanted to be touched. She arched into him, pressing herself against him.
His fingers curled under the edge of her panties and began sliding them down her legs. When they got to her knees, she kicked them off. She reached between them and stroked his cock through his underwear, wishing he’d take them off. Her fingers dipped below the waistband, but his hand stopped her.
“It’s my turn to play,” he told her.
His hand slid up the inside of her thigh until his fingers brushed the curls between her legs, making her shiver.
“Put your leg on top of mine,” he ordered softly.
She did as he bade, opening herself to him. When he gently stroked her pussy, parting the lips, she whimpered and strained to get closer to him. His fingers brushed against her clit, circling and teasing. She clawed at his shoulders, wanting more. When he slid two fingers inside of her, she nearly came. With his fingers sliding in and out of her, he teased her clit with his thumb, driving her wild.
Alex arched her back, thrusting her breasts out, wishing he would touch them, but too afraid to ask. When he plunged his fingers in deep, she came, calling out his name.
Hunter kissed her as he removed his boxer briefs and rolled her to her back. She was still shivering from her orgasm, but she wrapped her legs around his waist, welcoming his cock into her pussy. He filled her nicely, and when he began to thrust into her, she lifted her hips to meet him. When his thrusts became faster, he held her hips tightly, plunging deeper and harder, pushing both of them over the edge.
Afterwards, they lay in each other’s arms, panting for breath.
“I probably should have asked before now, but please tell me you’re on some sort of birth control,” Hunter said.
She smiled. “Yes, I am.”
“Good. Otherwise, that could have ended badly, no matter how wonderful it was.”
She kissed him and caressed his chest. “It was definitely wonderful.”
