Now that the funeral is over so are their obligations to remain aloof. They're staking their claim and giving Christie a choice; come live with them and accept their love or move on and lose them forever. Christie is torn in her feelings. She wants to remain so she can reclaim her family's ranch but unsure how a relationship with both Garrett and Conner could possibly work. The Cousins decide to give her a sample of the ecstasy she can expect before she leaves. Will she come back to them and accept the love they all share or stay away out of moral fears?

The flashback in the beginning helped set the tone of uncertainty for the hope of a future for these three characters. The steamy yet tender love scenes were graphic but well written.

‘What are you thinking about?’ Garrett asked, smiling down at her softly as he refilled her glass.
‘Being here again. It’s so strange but it feels like I never left.’
‘It doesn’t feel that way for us Christie. There has always been a huge hole in our lives that only you could fill.’
‘Don’t say that, Garrett.’
Christie put her glass down. ‘Because you guys have done nothing but put pressure on me since I arrived, acting as if your whole happiness depends on how I respond to your crazy offer. You want me to stay here with you—both of you—and God help me, but I’ve been considering it.’
‘Glad to hear it,’ Connor said with a smile. ‘What’s the problem?’
‘The problem is what kind of woman would that make me?’ She laughed as the absurd thoughts she’d been having spilled out of her mouth. ‘You don’t even know me anymore. The person you want is the naïve little kid who thought you two were gods made flesh. I’ve grown up, Connor, and I need a grown up relationship.’
‘That’s what we are offering.’
‘Have you thought it through? I mean, really? I’ve never even had sex with either of you yet you want me to commit to having a relationship with both of you. Do you realize how insane that sounds?’
Connor blew out a frustrated breath and Garrett paced away, running a hand through his hair as he thought on her words. Finally, he turned to her. ‘Look, I admit the conversation went too far last night. I was putting the cart before the horse.’
‘You can say that again,’ Connor said accusingly.
‘All we really want is a chance to see if what we believe is true.’
‘And what’s that?’ she asked.
‘That we are meant to be together. All of us.’ Garrett sat beside her on the sofa, clasping her hands in his. ‘Your entire childhood, you spent every waking moment with me and Connor. You were taken away from us at a time when we’d been fighting to keep our distance because we thought it was the right thing to do. Now, we want another chance to make things turn out the way they should have all along.’
‘You don’t have to say yes, Christie,’ Connor added, taking the seat on her other side. ‘But we think you feel the same way about us.’
‘What do you mean?’
‘Tell Garrett you don’t love him.’ Connor eyes fixed on hers as he dared her to speak the words.
‘You know I can’t,’ she said finally, dropping her gaze. She heard Garrett let out a shaky breath beside her but she couldn’t bring herself to look his way. A pulse beat loudly in her ears, drowning out the tense silence in the room.
‘Ok, then tell me.’ Christie stared at Connor again, angry almost that he could see through her so easily. She wished she could tell him that she didn’t love him just to wipe the smug look off his face but she couldn’t. Tears pricked her eyes as she shook her head slowly, letting him see that she was no more able to say it to him than she had been to Garrett.
‘So where does that leave us?’ he asked gently. Garrett remained silent, seeming content to let Connor speak, knowing his cousin had a way with words, Christie guessed. ‘We are adults and we love each other. Why aren’t we together?’
‘I don’t know. It’s just wrong I guess.’
‘Who says so?’ Garrett asked finally. ‘Who better to make the rules for our own lives than us?’
‘All we are asking for is a chance to show you how great it could be,’ Connor added when Christie fell silent again. ‘Let us show you how much we love you, Christie.’
She sighed, sinking back against the sofa as she closed her eyes. Christie could feel them waiting for her answer. When they put it the way they had, their suggestion didn’t seem unreasonable but she simply couldn’t shake the idea that it was wrong. She told them so.
‘Just let it go,’ Connor soothed, leaning closer as the hand that had been smoothing her hair began to trail down over her cheek. He tilted her chin, giving her plenty of time to pull away as his mouth lowered to hers.
Christie gasped as their lips touched, self conscious at first to be kissing him in front of Garrett until she became aware of his hand on her shoulder. Almost as soon as she felt it, he turned her towards him and away from Connor, replacing his lips with his own.
Garrett’s kiss seemed deeper and more possessive, as if he was trying to claim her. She began to respond to the probing of his tongue as it forced its way into her mouth. A long dormant ache came to life in her groin, and she tested the sensation, pushing against it as she realized how aroused she’d become.
Connor’s hand caressed her thigh and she felt him move closer. His other lifted her hair, giving him access to her neck. Christie felt a hard jolt of desire slam through her as his lips found her skin and he nibbled at it gently. Garrett’s free hand grasped her other leg and he wrapped a large palm around it, squeezing and smoothing as he made his way nearer and nearer to her crotch. Christie felt the first, fleeting pressure against her pussy as his knuckles grazed the fabric between her legs. Her insides contracted and she felt her muscles quiver at the warm, wet sensation his touch had caused.
‘Stop,’ she said weakly, ripping her mouth from Garrett’s and pushing them both away. ‘I can’t think with the two of you doing things to me.’
The men stayed put but didn’t touch her. Christie looked from one to the other. Two pairs of blue eyes stared back, watching as she straightened her clothes and got to her feet. Connor slumped forward to rest his forearms on his thighs, raising his head to look up at her. Garrett fell back, his chest rising and falling rapidly as he breathed heavily. His erection was clearly outlined in the denim of his jeans and she had to resist the urge to drop to her knees and release it.
‘So, what’s it gonna be, Christie?’ he asked quietly, drawing her attention back to his face. ‘If you keep looking at me like that, the choice isn’t gonna be yours for much longer.’
‘I can’t have sex with both of you at once,’ she protested weakly, knowing that she very much wanted to.
‘That night back in the barn, we all started something we’ve just got to finish,’ Connor said, getting to his feet to stand in front of her. ‘None of us can move on until we do.’
‘Besides,’ Garrett added, ‘it would cause too much jealousy if you chose one of us over the other. That’s why we agreed, if it ever happened, it was gonna be all or nothing.’
‘What makes you think I could handle that?’ Christie asked
‘It wouldn’t have to be this way every time,’ Connor said. ‘Just this first time—then we’ll see what happens.’
‘This isn’t just about sex,’ Garrett said, getting to his feet to stand in front of her beside Connor, ‘but I’ve had a hard-on for you for fifteen years and I can’t wait another minute to fuck you and I know he feels the same.’
Christie got wetter. Garrett didn’t know how to sweet talk a girl but if the look in his eye was anything to go by, he sure knew how to make her feel wanted. Her breath caught in her throat as she looked up at the pair of them. Every fantasy she’d ever had could be about to unfold in front of her and for the first time, she acknowledged to herself that it was exactly what she wanted. The damp throbbing in her pussy could not be ignored any longer.
She took a step back, enjoying a brief moment of power as she saw a fleeting look of disappointment cross their faces. ‘Give me five minutes and then come up to my room.’
