Worth, a beaten, burned, and broken submissive, is brought into a BDSM club by the man who's supposed to protect him but when the beast sets up a scene between the boy he calls "It" and two other Doms, he tells the men to punish him as hard as they possibly can and hold nothing back. After all, the world "It" comes from, doesn't have safe words.
Worth can't remember kindness. Thrown onto the streets when his adoptive parents read his journal entries confessing his deepest darkest secret, he is forced to do what he must in a world harsher than anything he's ever imagined, just to survive.
Terrified and in excruciating pain, Worth knows his days are numbered but when a terrifying dark Dom, called a sadist even by his closest colleagues, takes him under his wing and places him under his protection, Worth fears his dark days have just gone from bad to worse.
Michael, a Dom known for his hard percussion play, feels his heart melt the moment he spots a desperate young submissive who's been horribly treated. Can Worth accept the possibility that there are decent people in the world and can Michael make the damaged boy believe he has value and worth after all?
