As Mattie settles into her new apartment in Washington, DC, her life takes a turn for the better when she meets Alex Holland. The two fall into an easy friendship and before long Mattie finds herself wanting much more from her new friend. Certain that nothing more will ever develop, Mattie is determined to keep her feelings under wraps.
As she agonizes over being honest with Alex about her feelings and about her past, Mattie soon realizes she may lose Alex no matter which path she chooses. Is losing everything worth the risk of being honest with the woman she's falling for?
