With the help of her father, Razz’s desperate need to be validated costs Faith not only her first love but herself, being sucked into their world of selfishness and greed.
Once the foundation of Faith’s life is shaken and secrets are revealed, a getaway to Mason yields as more than a time to hide. It births a second chance for Faith to love again when she reconnects with her first love—Denver. While Denver struggles to forgive, Faith’s presence unlocks the love he has deeply tucked deep away in his heart for her, and he just can’t seem to let go.
