What do you hope for, now?

Carrington Olivia Butler’s last relationship ended in tragedy, but she remains hopeful in love. Her return to school sparks the beginning of her plan to pursue happiness and to win the man of her dreams… The man who saved her life. But, she soon finds he has moved on.

Jackson Latre Mitchell wanted Carrington from the moment he laid eyes on her. Hiding his feelings after his best friend showed interest, it took him a long time to get over her. He didn’t want to sit idly by and wait for something that may never happen.

Finally, Carrington and Jackson find their way back to each other. But, will the past continue to tear them apart?
