Raine is a young girl working in a BDSM sex club after being taken in by Macen "Hammer". She's secretly been in love with him for 6 years since he found we in a dumpster behind his club. He treats her like a child and she is torn. One day his close friend Liam comes to stay and offers her a chance to test her submissiveness. She doesn't know what to do so she sneaks into Hammer's bed in the middle of the night to see if he is attracted to her. The chaos begins when Hammer is furious with her sneaking into his bed and has her punished. To avoid a brutal beating, Liam offers her his training collar and Macen falls into a drunken stupor. Raine walks in on him, bent on his own destruction, and takes her to bed, before rejecting her. Raine is devastated and Liam takes her away from Shadows (the sex club). She begins to open up to Liam but then is forced to go back to Hammer after she discovers he has fallen off the deep end. She feels she owes him her life and tries to help, with Liam close behind.
Things don't work out as planned and Macen is heartbroken when Raine is collared by Liam, permanently.
