Max Winters is comfortable in her behind-the-scenes wunderkind role on Holt Lasher’s crime fighting team. Eventually, she’d like more responsibility in the field, but that only happens after Holt says you’re ready. When Holt’s team is asked to help bust an organized car theft ring and Whitney “Dubs” Williams is released from prison with the sole purpose of helping Holt in that pursuit, Holt turns to Max to be Dubs’ minder. As in, handcuffed together, 24/7 minder of an unreformed, young, hot, cocky thief. The lines blur between legal and illegal, real and façade, the longer the two women spend together. But Max isn’t willing to risk her heart for the entertainment of a criminal. In order to prove herself, Dubs has to make sure her feelings can’t be misinterpreted. But will she survive her grand gesture?
