When you’ve left everything behind and run away, and you meet someone who promises to make you strong, sometimes you fall for him, and you fall hard.
Lizzy saw both men at a Devilhouse party. Mannix was blue-eyed, an ex-football player, smoldering hot, and obviously taken. Theo was a prosecuting lawyer, as sweet as his caramel eyes, and insisted that he wasn’t a Dom. When Theo messes up their budding relationship by prying into her past, Mr. Smolder makes a play for Lizzy. When Mannix tells her that he loves her, far too soon, and when his proclivities take a turn for the disturbing, Lizzy begins to realize that she’s falling too far, too fast, and too hard.
