She never expects to fall hard for her new boss, Joe, at the fish and beer shop where she gets a job bartending. When he accidentally triggers her need for rope, she needs a quick fix for a shibari addiction she’d believed herself cured of long ago…

A drunk dialing moment leads to her sister’s fiancé—a man who has tied her in the past and has a lot of shibari connections—who delivers Francisco, the man he considers to be a shibari-master and a perfect match. Francisco gives Jessica an amazing long weekend of kink, both in and out of his rope, but when he asks her to consider being his submissive full-time, she runs…

…and ends up in bed with Joe. In a weak moment, she shares her secret love of bondage, but Joe really over-reacts and insists she’s the victim of deviant men, and that he would offer her a normal, healthy love. Wounded by his misunderstanding, she turns to her besties whiskey and cigarettes for respite.

As if her sex life isn’t complicated enough, a case of mistaken identity catches her in the crosshairs of an assassin. When Jessica seeks sanctuary in Cincinnati for the holidays, her sister gifts her with a night with a shibari master who goes by the name of St. Nicholas.
