We met Madison in Wicked as Seduction. This girl I thought was just going to be one of those psycho ex's that went through all of the security guys. Well turns out she just wanted to be loved and everyone just ghosted her "afterwards". Matt comes into the picture and starts working for the security team. They meet up. Something goes awry, and they do not communicate. Because of Matt's past he's afraid of being really serious about anyone. Well they go their separate ways. Something awful happens and she runs to Matt for protection. The book is really good except in this whole series the couples books are 2 parts
