On the outside looking in, Neil and Essence Danforth appear to have it all. But when Essence finds herself in a car accident with Preston Tillman, a heart-throbbing, charming young man who adores her at first sight, her marriage is not as solid as she thinks it is. Preston is determined to one day make Essence his wife. He will stop at nothing to take her from the arms of a man he doesn’t think deserves her. Neil is blindsided by Essence’s betrayal, and never in his wildest dreams did he think she’d be willing to partake in a sexual tryst, right in their own bedroom. Boldly making love between the sheets while he’s working is one thing, but lying about the affair is another. Critical decisions have to be made, and once the dust settles, a bombshell could send Essence to her knees, wishing she’d never chosen lust over love.
