**********

A GOOD MAN, FALLING APART
    
    Small town police officer Simon Labelle repressed his attraction to sexy shopgirl Leona Chaisty for years. He's good at controlling his feelings--or he used to be, before the bombing that he can't solve, that he should have prevented. Now, after a chance encounter with Leona at the lake, Simon can't get her out of his head. All those high school fantasies roar to life.
    
    A BAD GIRL, WISHING FOR MORE
    
    Leona is drawn to the intensity in Simon's pretty-boy blue eyes, but he's a good man, and she's not just hopelessly kinky--she'll never know how to love. Still, unlike everyone else, Simon acts like she might actually have a heart. The more time they spend together, the more she wishes he were right. 
    
    A CHALLENGE NEITHER CAN RESIST 
    
    After a second unsolved case pulls them together, their sexual chemistry rattles them both, and hints at an unsettling fetish that Simon struggles to suppress. Leona pushes Simon to decide what he wants--whether to dominate, submit, or some mix of both--while Simon, already falling for his dream girl, finally gets her to admit that she's lonely. 
    
    Each challenges the other to reveal more, to cede control, to be vulnerable. But they're both more fragile than they appear. It's only a matter of time before one pushes too hard, and the other breaks.​

**********

Trigger warnings for depression, suicidal ideation, and possibly alcoholism. Significant child abuse (neglect only) is also part of a character's backstory.

There is gender-bending, femdom, and a pretty scary control-based fetish. 

There is also off-screen violence and death, and mild on-screen violence.
