Lacking accountability, Blaine Hamilton is sitting front and center on what seems like a never-ending rollercoaster, as poor judgment results in a sudden move from East St. Louis. Relocating to Chicago, there was hope for a lifestyle change, new career, and hope that her future husband would be waiting to erase the deceit filled path she left behind. With a fresh start ahead of her, Blaine relies on her cousin, Bella, to sort out a mess of dishonesties attached to deadly consequences.
Before she can fully grasp all the Windy City has to offer, Blaine’s web of treachery catches the man of her dreams, or so she thought. The charismatic, handsome, yet cocky Javier Jones rattles Blaine’s world, increasing the fire on an already simmering pot. While manipulating her secrets, the past swoops in undetected, punishing everything she’s touched since her arrival. Refusing to be honest, Blaine hires a private investigator to tie all loose ends, by any means. Searching for a way out of the madness she created, ultimately, Blaine has to come face to face with the past she thought would never grace her present.
