He feels like he’s become the very man he despised growing up and is having a hard time getting back to who he used to be.

Sometimes, starting over, no matter how difficult, is what’s needed. Whitney Paul had to leave her home to ensure her safety. She ends up in Dallas, Texas and has to change her name to assure she couldn’t be located, all because her boyfriend was on the run.

However, when she receives a text message that offers the opportunity to reconnect with the man she’s carried in her heart all this time, she can barely contain her excitement and nerves.
When Whitney and Jericho see one another again, time stands still. Their attraction is just as strong as it was all those years ago. The challenge is getting to know and accept the adults they’ve evolved into, especially Jericho.
