Once again the teaser is more than 2 lines. It just wouldn't make sense without the background.

Despite his being involved with Bria, Finn was still a shameless flirt who loved to charm every woman who crossed his path. He would never do that with Madeline, for obvious reasons, but that didn't keep him from ogling her for all he was worth. I snorted again and rolled my eyes. 

"What?" he protested. "She's like a black widow spider. I can admire the beauty of such a creature, even if I know how deadly it is."

"Only you would think that being eaten during your post coital bliss would be worth it."

Finn shrugged, then flashed me a mischievous grin. "But what a way to go."

Madeline is their enemy, which is why Finn wouldn't flirt with her. The book is good. Characters are well developed. And there's humor as well action.
