Alex Foster just got hired by Disaster City Search and Rescue and he’s excited to work alongside his former partner from the U.S Marshal service. But he’s only at his new job a couple of weeks when his ex high school sweetheart calls him up and begs for his help. She was the only witness to a mafia hit, and she’s terrified.
Everly Castillo was planning her escape from her abusive husband, but before she can get away from him, he ends up getting killed right in front of her. She takes the opportunity to run, knowing that his powerful crime family will kill her because she knows too much. She reaches out to her ex-boyfriend, and he offers to get her in contact with someone at his former work, but she only trusts him.
Can Alex protect Everly from her cutthroat in-laws? Will they give into their rekindled attraction? And will Everly agree to go into WITSEC even if it means leaving Alex behind forever?
