Torrence “Tor” Jewel started the day with a broken heel, and by 10:15 her ex-girlfriend, Sera, had walked into her bank branch and stuck a gun in her face. It wasn’t the fantasy reunion she’s always dreamed about. Before she could fully register that the one woman she’d always thought of as “the one who got away” was standing in front of her, she was pushed facedown onto the floor with a shoe pressed into her back to hold her in place. They might as well shoot her now because as soon as she gets up, she’s going to kill Sera. Or kiss her. She’s still undecided.
FBI agent Sera Warren has been working undercover trying to track a domestic terrorist group to its origins. She’s sacrificed everything and is determined to make her case. Everything goes according to plan until the day she’s sent to check on the fund-raising efforts of one of the groups who report to her. The next thing she knows, she’s in the middle of a bank heist, pointing a gun at her ex-girlfriend, Tor. She’s always regretted the way their relationship ended and hoped they’d one day have a chance to reconcile. She sees a flicker of recognition in Tor’s eyes as she pulls her .45 and yells, “On the floor!”
To make things worse, Tor is the only one who can help her navigate a truly crappy day involving trigger-happy criminals, wailing hostages, a building layout she doesn’t understand, and a police captain unwilling to negotiate.
If they make it through the day alive, Sera is totally going to tell Tor how she really feels about her. Totally.
