Stacy stood there for a minute enjoying the night. The sun had already set and the trees lining the walk way were decorated with twinkle lights. There weren’t too many people out front milling around as Stacy made her way back towards the doors.
She knew that voice and felt her body tense. Stacy slowly turned to see Mark standing next to a tree. He looked better than the last time she saw him, but she still didn’t want anything to do with him.
“What are you doing here Mark? I thought I made it clear that we’re over.” Stacy made sure she didn’t get anywhere near him.
He just stared at her for a minute not saying anything. Mark took a step towards her, but she put a hand out to halt him.
“Stop, don’t come any closer. Wait you know what I’m going inside I don’t care why you’re here.” Stacy turned and walked away from him.
“Stacy please I’m sorry. I love you and I’m sorry I hurt you. Please take me back.” Great, now Mark was begging.
“No Mark good-bye.” Stacy turned and walked back into the building. She couldn’t be sure, but she swore she heard him yell ‘You’re mine Stacy’.

Stacy dumped Mark as soon as she found out about his wife and kids, but he won't take "it's over". Now as she tries to move on she remembers how much she cared for her best friends brother Dustin, she broke thing off with him when her feelings were getting stronger because he was known for his commitment phobia. As Stacy moves forward Marks constant calls and visits scare and she becomes close to Dustin once again, can things be different this time?
Dustin swore after his high school sweetheart cheated and him and broke his heart he'd never have a relationship ever again, but Stacy makes him want things he hasn't wanted in years. With their feelings growing stronger and her ex's constant threats will the two have the relationship they really want or will everything happening pull them apart forever?
Stacy is strong in some ways but her dislike for her body causes her allot of heartache, throughout all I wanted was to see her become happy with who she is. Dustin is sweet and caring and a total alpha male wanting to make sure Stacy is ok. I enjoyed the relationships between the characters and their family and how everyone was always there for each other. The storyline leave you guessing where things are going and how it will all turn out, but I enjoyed the ride
