The old story of there are women you mess around with and women you marry is applied to the male of the species and it doesn't sit well. Troy, who is happy with Nicole, is dumped and isn't letting it stand. He's the one for her, he just has to convince her. He's been hiding himself for years, and the sad thing is no one in his family ever noticed. Nicole hasn't either until he starts to truly pursue her and show all his facets.
Nicole is moving on to someone she can have a life with, but can she really let what she and Troy have go? The two meander through the minefield their relationship has become to get to a place where they can be what they were meant to be; together. She has a narrow vision, and is easily influenced by what society tells her she should want. But what about what she needs?
The story features all the siblings and family drama that is a given in this series and the reader gets to enjoy as Nicole and Troy grow emotionally throughout the story. A good ending to the series.
