You ever met a beautiful, successful woman, who seemed to have had it all but, on the inside, she was completely broken and unaware of how to pick up the pieces, and start fresh? Void of emotion for the most part, without ever having family support or a helping hand. Shaylee is guarded, and not only with men, but with people in general. Her mother was a dead beat, and her stepfather couldn’t keep his hands to himself. Coming up, on Atlanta’s west side, life was tumultuous to say the least, but Shaylee’s hustle wasn’t only for her, but for her little sister as well.
Morgan is the light of her life and motivation to do better. Paralyzed from a stray bullet intended to hit her ex, she struggles almost daily with the ups and downs of depression. Shaylee wants to be more supportive, but her sister’s handicap requires more attention than her schedule permits. Besides, Shaylee has a life too. There’s a new barber at the shop next door and after a wild night out, she can’t stop thinking about him.
And he, her.
Fresh in Atlanta from California, LA wants a new start. After recently losing a daughter, which caused his ex-girlfriend, Miranda to go mental, the slow city life of the south offers him just the atmosphere to reboot; meeting Shaylee was just a bonus. Stimulated by her mysterious aura, LA forgets the plan he had in motion when he originally arrived, slacking off. Now, months later, Miranda is in town with big plans of her own. She’s healthy and wants her family back. Unbeknownst to her, LA is on a mission to make Shaylee take her wall down. However, he soon realizes that although beautiful on the outside, Shaylee is too guarded to love.
Faheem doesn’t think so, he raised her to be just the girl she is and now he’s ready to stake his claim. Her savior from childhood, Faheem is the guy who literally saved her from the streets and offered her a better life. There’s only one problem, it’s the life he wanted her to have, not the life she wanted for herself…
Two men, one broken woman. Will the loyalty Shaylee have for an old flame break down her wall and open her heart to loving him freely? Or will the allure of something different spark her interest more?
