After reporting a case of police brutality, Jim Jefferson’s life and marriage falls apart. He attempts to start his life over by opening up a bar called Obsessions that caters to Dominants and their submissives. Due to a horrible facial scar suffered as a child, he manages the club from the shadows and avoids all contact. Jefferson’s emotional and sexual life is reignited by Ms. Madsen, a stunning young woman, first introduced in The Reluctant Dom, Book One of the Obsession Series. She enters his club on the arm of her Dom, Charles Anderson and immediately attracts a crowd, wearing see-through clothing. When Ms. Madsen sees Jefferson for the first time, she isn’t repulsed at all by his appearance. She tenderly places her palm directly over his deformed cheek, the first person in his life who touches him on his most sensitive spot. In the privacy of his office, Jefferson has a powerful sexual experience with Ms. Madsen that changes his life. But after one final intimate encounter, Ms. Madsen goes back to her boyfriend Patrick Johnson, a young man returning from the war in Afghanistan, and gets married. Jefferson learns the complex secret behind the identity of Ms. Madsen and attempts to forget her. In a vain attempt to move on, Jefferson has two passionate, but short-lived affairs with different women, Janet and Amy. When Ms. Madsen returns to his life several months later and becomes his submissive, Jefferson learns the shattering truth about the violent military officer she married. Now Jefferson must struggle between the passion he still feels for Ms. Madsen and the moral consequences of protecting her from her abusive husband.
