When Sloane Drake learns her best friend Leigh has gone missing in Boston, she expects the worst. She and the rest of the ex-assassins go after Leigh to discover her whereabouts. No one's seen her, not even Axel Whitman, the arrogant rich boy who used to be Leigh's best friend.
Sloane has always stuck to the shadows. She's not flashy, she doesn't take charge, and no one notices her. But when everyone else disappears as well, she's left on her own. She's got to find where the others have been taken, and she's got to rescue them.
Axel wants to help. He's a careless playboy who owns a burlesque gentleman's club and usually spends his nights snorting cocaine or screwing anything in a skirt. Helping Sloane is dangerous and exciting, and he can't get enough of it. Furthermore, he can't get enough of Sloane herself.
Sloane knows that Axel is getting in the way of her mission. He distracts her with trivialities when she should be focusing on freeing her friends. But being with Axel makes her feel like she's been pulled from the shadows into the light. She's never been so... noticed.
