Retired Army Staff Sergeant Lee Winters is trying hard to adjust to civilian life. She was released from duty after a bomb in Ramadi injured her and killed her troops, the only people she ever considered her family. Living day-to-day with the knowledge that she was the only one left alive, she hits rock bottom, and an old army buddy persuades her into taking a bodyguard job.
Jolene West is injured in an attack meant to get her famous sister's attention. She resents her sister Tory's life and plans to move away once she's healed. In the meantime, Tory has hired a bodyguard to protect Jolene from further attacks, which is just one more thing she resents. What she hadn't planned on was an undeniable attraction to the woman protecting her body.
Both women will try to fight their growing attraction for each other until one of them gives in or dies.
