When Scarlett finally gets the nerve to speak to Trent, she believes it’ll be a one-time encounter until he keeps popping up everywhere she goes. The more they run into each other and the more they talk, the worse she feels about the secret she carries.
When the secret is revealed, more complications arise to put them both in a predicament neither are sure they want.
