Karley Stevens is fragile and wounded in body and soul, seeking only to disappear from the world, when she meets Luc Genres. Still overcoming past trauma, Karley is surprised by the intensity of Luc’s attraction to her. Although she feels damaged, she allows herself to be loved by this man, always wondering if he wants to save her or possess her. Together, they come upon commitment difficulties in a shared time of sexual experimentation and new experiences. Karley soon meets Ian and Kent who teach her how sex can be used for different reasons—more than pleasure alone. She then explodes from her shell when she saves a man’s life and becomes stronger than she could have imagined.
