My whole life I’d been driven by my mother to be one of the greatest ballerinas that the New York City Ballet has ever seen. She kept me in a glass viewing case, not meant to be handled or touched.
But once I remove my pointe shoes, I yearn for independence, escape, and the freedom just to be me…and to have him, Tyler Wilson.
Tyler may be the star striker for New York FC and a serial womanizer, but underneath his frivolous bravado, I see the real Tyler – the kind, protective man I’ve known since childhood. Though he still sees me as a fragile, an untouchable princess.
Now we’re kind of working together, I feel the crack of electric, sexual tension in the air with each glance shared and I have my chance. I will show Tyler I’m not just a ballerina in a box, and together, we will defy everyone and break the rules.
But we can never, ever be caught.
