Kaiya Marlow has always been cautious, precise in every decision she makes. When her dark past threatens to resurface, she decides to take precautions to protect herself by enrolling in self-defense classes at her gym.

Her instructor, Ryker Campbell, is the tattooed womanizer everyone warns about. Kaiya attempts to resist Ryker’s advances, but the more time they spend training together, the harder it is for Kaiya to resist him.

Ryker’s view on relationships is simple: strictly sex, nothing more. Haunted by demons from his past, he never allows himself to become attached to any woman. No attachment means no weakness, no vulnerability, no pain. He doesn’t realize that his whole world is about to be turned upside down when Kaiya enters his self-defense class. Determined to have her, at least for one night, Ryker sets a plan into motion that will change both of their lives forever.

Will love be able to heal their scars, or are they too deep to overcome?

***#NerdGirlBeth’s  Review***
This book was heart-wrenching and really examines the post traumatic stress after rape.  The beginning of the book often times felt it was telling me too much and not showing me enough. But about 15% into the book I really started to get into the book.  Ky and Ryker seem like the unlikely couple at first but it is their wounds that bring them closer together. By the end I was grabbing the edge of my chair wondering what was going to happen next. Definitely worth reading.
