When Lorelai Todd has her heart shattered by her boyfriend, she vows to never trust a man again. Six months later, she is called to the hospital where she works to help with an emergency. She speeds to get there and is pulled over by Jay, the handsome cop that will eventually threaten to break down the walls around her heart. After pulling over the beautiful nurse that caught his eye, Jay regrets not asking her out, until he is called to the hospital to identify a potential kidnapping victim who has been shot. When he arrives at the hospital to speak with the nurse in charge, he is surprised and happy to discover that it's Lorelai, the beauty he pulled over for speeding. He wastes no time in asking her out and she accepts, but hesitantly. As their relationship progresses and gets significantly steamier, Jay wonders whether or not he can convince her to let her guard down and trust him while also trying to track down the man who kidnapped and shot the young victim that brought them together. While he's wooing Lorelai, Jay also has to follow leads, examine new evidence, and deal with the shock of an unexpected suspect. In the midst of all of this, somebody from his past shows up and threatens to ruin all of the progress he's made with Lorelai. Can he convince her that he won't hurt her like her ex, or will she throw away her chance at happiness for fear of her heart breaking once more?
