Chanelle Slate is sexy, successful, and full of drama. Professionally, she’s a rising star at her technology firm and on track to make partner. Personally, she believes she is enjoying the love of her adoring boyfriend, Michael. Until one moment of betrayal - and a baseball bat - shatter her dreams.
Against heavenly advice, she seeks comfort in the arms of her married colleague before finally giving up on dating and isolating herself from those who care about her. When she bumps into Rick Faust, her love from college, rekindling a relationship is the last thing on her mind. But his strength and protection when she goes through the biggest challenge of her life endears him to her. There’s only one problem. She has a secret; one that she will go to great lengths, including enlisting help from her level-headed best friend, Michele, to keep buried.
By the time the love she craves is in front of her, the mistakes and sins of her past come back to haunt her and she wonders if everyone will make it out alive.
