After a devastating divorce from her childhood love, Mason, Emerson had to pick up the pieces of her shattered life one shard at a time. With a newfound love of self, she swears off the days of sacrificing herself for the sake of her husband. As a new entrepreneur and wildly successful internet influencer, Emerson feels like she's finally made it. But when a secret from her past threatens everything she has worked for, her life quickly changes. Can Emerson keep her past mistakes out of the limelight, or will everything she's worked for fall apart right before her eyes?
Mikayla King has a secret she guards carefully. Her children, Kai and Zuri, are the only people keeping Mikayka grounded, until her relationship with her children is threatened too. Mikayla would rather continue suffering mental and physical abuse at the hands of her husband, professional sportscaster Charles King, than go back to being poor and subject her children to the life she lived as a child. But when Mikayla's deepest secret is revealed, life as she knows it crumbles to pieces. It is not long before she turns to substances to ease her pain, just like her mother. Can Mikayla overcome her demons to save her children, or will she see her worst fear realized?
