Leery of trusting men and her magnetic attraction to Montana, Jasmine wants to leave their weekend as a passionate memory while Montana wants more. After he convinces her to date him once they return to New York, an unexpected encounter with his ex reminds Jasmine why she steers clear of men like Montana. A man who doesn’t believe in being faithful or marriage.

As time passes, Jasmine begins to regret walking away from a potential love, and when they meet again at a wedding, she’s surprised to discover Montana still feels the same. She must now choose to remain in her comfortable world or explore a new one full of passion, love, and wealth where the stakes are higher than she has ever known.
