Now Playing: Reel Love by B. Love
When Maddox’s grandmother dies and leaves him with her half of the only black owned movie theater in Legacy Lakes, the last thing he wants to do is leave his highly lucrative job and beautifully well-kept woman behind… especially to deal with Daliah — the other owner of the theater and his childhood nemesis.
Unlike Maddox, Daliah wants to keep the theater open and improve it to bring in a younger crowd. While they may not agree on what to do with the business left to them, they can agree on one thing — neither of them wants anything to do with love.
As always, fate begins to work in their unwilling favor. While Daliah works to create reel love within Maddox… he begins to create real love within her. Will they accept both of their grandmothers meddling from their graves and surrender to fate… or will this be one romance that ends without a happily ever after?
