She has her two close friends who she trusts, but are not doing much better than herself, her life is spiraling out of control no matter how hard she tries to salvage it. When Beth takes the rap, protecting her mother and lands herself in jail it thrusts her Uncle Scott back into her life. Scott is just another disappointment in a long trail of appointment's, he abandoned her when she was young, when she still believed in hope. Scott is determined to correct his wrongs with Beth, moving her into his home and making a fresh start. He was never expecting the angry, disrespectful, untrusting young woman who used to be sweet, silly, and the bright spot in his day. He has a long road ahead of him trying to correct some past wrongs.

All is not what it seems with Ryan, he is struggling with family issues and has no where to turn. The first time he meets Beth on a dare he asks for her phone number, she turns him down flat with a few jaded sentences but it doesn't stop him from wondering about her. When she arrives in town, Ryan is asked to befriend her and show her the ropes. It is a tug of war, Beth doesn't want his help, he wants to still win his bet and the merry go round begins. What develops is a unique friendship that has both leaning on one another, developing into something more powerful than dating and changing their lives forever.
