My life has never been easy. I've lost my mom, my dad has checked out when he's not pissed at me or trying to pawn me off on some man, and I'm a single mom. Deciding the best thing I can do is take off to find my own path and get away from the monster chasing me, I end up breaking down in a small town. There I meet more people than I have in a long time, but I still refuse to let them in. I can't have anyone get too close to me. Will one man be able to break down the walls I've so carefully created?

My life ended with the loss of my loved one. She was taken in front of my eyes and there was nothing I could do to change the outcome. Every decision I've made since then has been about protecting those I love and keeping them away from the damage and danger I bring around. I'm not a good man and I'm willing to go to any lengths to protect those I love. Even if if breaks my own heart on a daily basis. I don't let a woman get close to me anymore. I spend only as long as I absolutely have to with them before moving on. Until one woman. Does she have what it takes to thaw my heart and break down the barriers I've put in place?
