Devlin is tormented by the memory of a time when he descended into darkness, taking an innocent woman with him and barely making it out alive. His work as a sex therapist is the only thing that keeps him going. Where he cannot help the one from his past, he can at least help others like her. His best friend, Mac, thinks that someday one of his cases will be a breakthrough for him, allowing him to forgive himself and move on with his life. Devlin doesn't agree.
Melissa is facing her own demons. As a teenager, she was kidnapped and held captive for months, losing her virginity and tangling her sexuality into her captor's desires. She hasn't had a romantic relationship since. She struggles with her feelings for her captor and her fear of intimacy of any sort.
When Devlin takes Melissa on as a client, everything they thought they knew about themselves and their past is challenged. Devlin may be able to help her - and himself - but only if she can overcome her fears and trust him with the truth. (M/F)

To the anonymous reviewer before me - I completely agree! This book blew me away! I enjoyed Blindsided, but this was above and beyond. The characters are fantastic, and I've been waiting for the follow-up as well. Complete page-turner, and excellent second read value.
I don't want to say to much as to give away plot twists. I started reading this with an expectation of the well laid erotica (no pun intended) I had found with Ann Ruby's other novel Blindsided, I wasn't disappointed to find this was different. I started loving the depth of emotions within all of the characters, rooting for them in their struggles. When the twists were revealed I cheered and cursed the silent ninjas cutting onions in my room. I tore through this book and eagerly await the follow up!
