Rachel has been through a lot in her young life. When she was a child, her parents used and sold drugs, her mother beat her, and she had to fend for herself much of the time. But while her life was miserable, her dreams were bright. She wanted to become a businesswoman and start her own company, and basketball gave her an outlet for her feelings and her ambition.
But growing up isn’t easy - and love still isn’t simple. Rachel finds herself drawn to both John, the boyfriend who says he loves her, and Shanae, her longtime best friend who supports her through thick and thin. Although Rachel cares deeply for both of them, she isn’t yet ready for love - not after everything she has been through.
And then Richard enters her life. Rachel is now a young woman enjoying professional success and making her own decisions, but she often still lives in a past haunted by abuse. In her relationship with this new man that she can see a future with, Rachel must confront her demons and decide how she will live - and love - moving forward.
