Dex... I don't have a heart left to give anyone. So when my friend tries to set me up with BDSM romance author Chloe Martin, the only answer I can give is "hell no." Unfortunately for me, Chloe is also a journalist working a story on the Latin Kings, and my boss orders me to protect her while she carries out her research. But she's so reckless, I'm going to have my hands full keeping her alive, let alone keeping her in line. Chloe... FBI agent Dex Scott is sexy as sin and completely off-limits. After what my bastard ex-husband put me through, I'm not interested in intimacy of any kind. But the chemistry between us is undeniable, and when Dex makes it clear that he wants to help with my research in the field and in the bedroom, I can't resist. His protective instincts turn possessive as dangers from my past and present rise up to threaten me. The powerful Dom demands my submission and my love. He won't relent until he breaks down all my walls, including the ones that protect my ravaged heart.
