As the son of a Formula One racer, the need for speed was in my blood. But in the blink of an eye, my life in the fast lane came to a screeching halt. With my racing career gone, I had no choice but to endure a new way of life. Even though I could no longer be on the track, I was never far from one. 
And that’s where I met her—Kalliope Benton Riley.
She wasn’t my usual type at all. In fact, she was a total hippie. With her flowy dresses and rainbow-colored hair wraps, she had outlandish ideas about the stars, the moon, and predetermined destiny. Ridiculous.
Yet…I couldn’t turn away from her mesmerizing green eyes. She was more than a pit stop. She was an addiction. My checkered flag.
Before long, I was preparing for an entirely new kind of race—the race for Kallie’s heart.
She demanded to take the lead but I knew I had to be careful. One wrong bump and our tandem could be wrecked.

Six years ago, a psychic gypsy gave me a warning. She said I was cursed when it came to romance and destined for a life of disappointment and heartache. 
She was right.
So when the opportunity to move across country presented itself, I was more than ready for a change—but that change was not supposed to include someone like Sloan Atwood.
He was rich, gorgeous, polished...and so not my style. 
Avoiding him should have been easy. 
But every time I looked at him, the attraction grew stronger. Like the pull of an undertow, he slowly swept me away. I couldn’t help but wonder if maybe—just maybe—Sloan could be the one to finally break the curse. 
Then I saw a California sunset…the gypsy had warned me about those too. 
As the sun dropped lower in the sky, my heart knew I couldn’t box this lap. There would be no winners in this race. Total shut down was the only way to prevent permanent damage.
