Lexi Pendergraft has given up on finding love after a disastrous encounter with her last boyfriend. Instead, she's determined to help her brother Reed--who gave up everything to give her a chance at a semi-normal college experience after her rape a year ago. Reed has a secret he's keeping from Lexi and his fiancee Caroline, and he refuses to tell them what it's about, even when it's destroying his relationship with Caroline.
Ben Masterson is determined to make it through his final semester of his senior year at Southern University, suffering from sleep deprivation and exhaustion while trying to keep up with his courses and working three part time jobs after losing his full ride scholarship last fall. The last thing he needs is Reed Pendergrafts's little sister complicating things. Yet Ben can't get her off his mind, especially when he realizes that she keeps turning up in a black wig where he bar tends. Lexi's determined to keep her real identity from him, the question is why?
