Hope can only dream about living the life of the students that she waits on in the restaurant where she works. Keeping her brother safe from the life she experienced with her mother is her top priority, and she will fight for that safety no matter what the cost is to her own happiness.
Caleb comes from money and lives a good life, but can't help feeling like there is something missing.

When fate gives him the opportunity to help his enigmatic waitress, Hope, he finds himself in a world where all that matters is saving Hope. Hope's mother's unexpected return makes Hope choose between the love of her life and the safety of her brother-but Caleb isn't giving up without a fight.
