A woman in an unsafe marriage. A man who can’t look the other way. What does the future hold for them?

Makia Sallow-Hansen has been forced into marrying a man almost twice her age by her money hungry parents. Her new husband Michael is controlling, demanding and abusive and believes he has the money and connections to keep her under his thumb. Makia’s undying and unconditional love for her big sister Sage and their grandmother Lola is constantly being held over her head as a way to keep her toeing the line when she tries to rebel.

Hayes is a successful entrepreneur and has several different business ventures, including one with Michael Hansen. His world takes a spin when he meets Michael’s wife and he feels something he never thought he would. Of course, he could never act on it, she’s married. When he accidentally discovers Michael’s cruel side, all bets are off. When he discovers the manipulation Makia has been put through, the gloves come off as well.

After a particularly bad fight with Michael, Makia realizes she has to find a way out sooner rather than later and begins to work with the most unlikely of allies, Michael’s young and handsome business partner Hayes Purcell. Makia soon finds herself not only fighting for her freedom but her attraction to Hayes as well.
