Gemma's an ER nurse who has always made the wrong choices in love. When she saves Dominic, a mixed-martial arts fighter, from heart failure, their attraction is mutual, but she doesn't trust herself enough to give in to his charms.
Dominic, on the other hand, has been haunted by a tragic past and craves intimacy even while he fears commitment. However, Gemma's intelligence and big heart prove enough of a prize for this stoic fighter to move forward and embrace love. Once he wraps his muscular arms around Gemma, he never wants to let her go.
