Jay Bontrager, a strong, sexy California blond, has mostly adjusted well to living with paraplegia since his spinal cord injury. But Jay feels disgusted by devotees—“freaks” who are attracted to people with disabilities—until he meets the enigmatic and beautiful devotee Erin Silver.
Unfortunately, after Erin overhears Jay expressing his contempt for people like her, the disgust is mutual: She can't stand to be in the same room with him. Things get even more complicated when her brother, unaware of their brief but hostile acquaintance, installs Jay as Erin’s new housemate.
Erin has long struggled with the guilt and self-loathing caused by her strange attraction to disabled men and just wants to be normal. The last thing she needs is a disabled (and, God help her, hot) roommate reminding her she’s defective. Once she gets to know him better, though, she begins to see Jay in a different light. Maybe he's not a complete jerk after all.
But what will happen when, against her better judgment, she finally lets herself trust him—even love him—and finds out he's been deceiving her all along?
