An act of betrayal, a call to 911, and a note from the brother she lost give Natalie the courage to embark on a journey of self-exploration. Unknowingly set up by their friends, Alex and Natalie spend the evening together at New York City’s Fire and Ice BDSM club. Neither one is looking for love, but their chemistry is too strong to ignore. They agree to a Dom/sub contract with an expiration date—the insurance policy both believe will keep their hearts safe. Distance makes the heart grow fonder, or so they say. Forces outside their control seek to pull them apart, but they find their way back to one another. The couple’s connection is stronger than ever until tragedy strikes Natalie’s family. Mistakes are made. Words that can’t be taken back are uttered. Sometimes it takes the love of friends to pick up the pieces. Can two broken souls find their way back to one another?
