When Sutton Smith asks her to marry the charming Hayden ’the Beast’ Warren, she is surprised to find that her celebrity crush has a huge grudge against her. As they embark on their honeymoon, Hayden seems to be falling for Eva as much as she is for him, but there’s an undercurrent of animosity radiating from him and she can’t figure out why.
Hayden Warren, hunky basketball superstar, has been recruited to protect none other than Eva Canterbury, the gorgeous woman who ripped out his innocent heart in college.
