Judah wants to ask Ruby out, but he knows about her traumatic past and won't push her into doing something she isn't ready for. But when Ruby gets mixed up in his latest case, he is determined not only to keep her safe but also to prove to her that not all men treat women like property. Earning her trust and her heart will push him to confront his own turbulent past, but if it helps Ruby, it's worth it.
