With her newly acquired degree in counseling, she begins leading a sex addicts group where she meets the troubled Knox and her life takes on complications she never bargained for. She doesn't have time for a bad boy who only wants to take her to bed, even if her body disagrees. The fixer in her wants to help, but trusting Knox's true motivations might take more courage than she has.

This book just wasn't for me. I didn't like either of the main characters, and the stuff in the end was just annoying and didn't make sense to me. I was really frustrated with it and I don't think I will continue reading this one. The writing was pretty good, and for the most part it was an interesting plot, but I just couldn't connect with the characters.
