Choices.  What really happens to those who are affected by our own?

When Ashley Frewman leaves her boyfriend, Dave Brown, of seven years he is left completely devastated. Now, years later, there is little left of the once optimistic man his family once knew, and next to no hope in trusting any woman with his heart again. Even Shea LaBelle, the irresistibly beautiful but quirky French youth worker living in the brownstone building next door, can't seem to figure him out... but she is drawn to him all the same.

Circumstances connecting Shea to his ex-fiancé move Dave to uncover the real reason behind Ashley's sudden return by keeping who he really is a secret from Shea. But intentions blur and feelings change the more time he spends with Shea, and turn of events reveal he is not the only one keeping secrets. Can forgiveness triumph over betrayal?
