A broken woman with a tortured past. A cocky alpha with his own demons. Will love be able to heal their scars, or are they too deep to overcome?
My life has always been about caution and control. Trust no one. Love no one. The people you love are the ones that hurt you the most; I learned that at a young age. Haunted everyday by the ghosts of my past, I decided I would never be someone's victim again and enrolled in a self-defense class. And that's where I met Ryker. The hot, tattooed womanizer was everything I didn't want, yet I can't seem to resist him, no matter how hard I try.
My view on relationships is simple: strictly sex, nothing more. No attachment means no weakness, no vulnerability, no pain. What I didn't realize was that Kaiya would turn my world upside-down after she walked into my self-defense class. Unlike other women, she's fought me from the moment we met even though we both know she wants me. And one way or another I'll have her, even if it's just one night.
