"I think your mother had an affair with my business partner." A few simple words, and Lacey's world is blown apart. It soon becomes clear that her mother is hiding something, and Lacey becomes determined to find out what it is. As she explores her mother's past, driving a wedge between herself and the woman who gave her life, she also explores a relationship with Jon. As she begins to see that everyone around her has been keeping secrets, Jon becomes the only person she truly trusts. Jon approached Lacey with one goal in mind: finding out if her mother had once been involved with his business partner, and if she had, what happened between them. But Lacey is beautiful, sweet, and has an innocence he hasn't seen in a woman in a long time. It's an innocence he usually avoids, but in her, it draws him. He thinks he can manage a relationship with Lacey and still accomplish his goal at the same time, but can he? As the truth starts to break through the walls of lies, Lacey and Jon only grow closer. But what happens when Lacey finds out Jon's secret? Will she be able to forgive him and move on, or will she believe he manipulated her for his own purposes and cut him out of her life forever? More importantly, when faced with a choice her mother once had, will she learn from her mother's mistakes or is she doomed to repeat them?
