While trying to put the pieces of her heart back together, Toni travels home to visit her family, where she plans to mend the estranged relationships she created. One person she doesn’t plan on mending her relationship with is her high school crush turned ex-lover, Zain.

Focusing solely on his contracting business and football, he simply had no time to devote to a woman, until he hears his first love will be returning home. His unconventional relationship with Toni was the only taste of love he’d ever known. Him leaving for college put an end to them before they knew it. Now older and wiser, Zain knows Toni is the woman he wants. The only problem is, Toni wants nothing to do with him.
Their yearning for one another becomes stronger than the forces pulling them apart. Toni knows her heart lies with Zain, but she’s still healing from being left by Mekhi. Will she be able to overcome her heartache and give her and Zain the chance they deserve?
